of Echo, Or, will be presented at the
July session of the Umatilla County
Court, according to i. 1 nuru. sur
tary ot the Stanfield Commercial Club,
who was in Portland yesterday.
The tnnnel under the Blue Mountains
is not the only unusual feature about
the Teel project. After pouring through
the mountains Into the head of Butter
Creek, the water will follow the chan
nel of this stream for seven miles,
saving the time and expense that
would be necessary to construct an
irrigation canal. From Butter Creek
it will be led in canals over the 23,000
cres of volcanic-ash, wheat land in
cluded in the project.
Paradise Project Big.
An even greater project, although
one in which the engineering features
are not so unusual. Is the 60.000 acre
Paradise" project east of Stanfield,
which is soon to go under Irrigation
under the new law, which permits
bonding of the land to pay the costs
of installing the system. The Paradise
district has been organised under the
new law, within the past 60 days, by
the owners of the property included In
The cost of the project is estimated
at $40 an acre. Including the expense
of reservoirs. This In a little more
than one-third of the average cost of
private or Government irrigation proj
cts, says Mr. Hurd.
Instead of the payments being made
in annual installments covering a
period of ten years, it has been ar
ranged for the bonds In this project to
cover a period of 20 years, no payments
excepting of interest to be made for
the first ten years. In the 11th year
the bonds will begin to be taken up
In annual Installments of one-tenth of
Seepage Twice Available.
The Government has allowed the
property holders in the Paradise project
water at the rate of 1000 second feet
for the higher lands. The seepage from
the irrigation In this project will re
turn to the Umatilla River and will be
available again for the irrigation proj
ects that cover the lower areas in the
went extension project.
Mr. Hurd's visit to Portland yester
day was to request the Portland Com
mercial Club to arrange for a visit to
Stanfield next October, by the business
men en route for the Oregon Develop
ment League convention in La Grande.
"Our city has become so prosperous."
he says, "and bids fair to make so
much more progress within the near fu
ture as the irrigation movement
spreads, that we are anxious to have
the Portland business men for our
guests, so that we can show them
what we have done and so that they
may become Interested in the future
of our city."
Mr. Hurd Is president of the Eastern
Oregon fair, as well as secretary of the
Stanneld Commercial Club. The fair
is to be held at Pendleton this year
during the week of the "Round-Up."
and Mr. Hurd says that indications
are favorable for a greater list of
entries than ever before!
