ler. In selecting voting places for
the coming election, the Court
found that in several instances
new voting places were made
necessary because of various
reasons, and the meager infor
mation at hand to aid the court
in choosing new polling places,
made a choice difficult, and the
best place apparently was chos
en. In one instance, Redmond,
which is now being incorp jrated
cannot hold an election in the
pioposed corporate limits at
this time and it may be necess
aty for the voters to go to a dis
tance of neatly three miles to
the Tethrow schoolhouse to
vote, unless a more convenient
place can be secured. The
same conditions prevail in the
If a more suitable place than
the one designated by the court
c in be agreed upon by the vo
ters, the court will be pleased to
consider it at the regular July
CROOKED RIVER IN
The injunction against the 25
Crooked river farmers has been
dissolved by the plaintiffs, The
Piiueville Flouting Mills, under
the stipulation that the case will
be tried out before a referee at
the October term of court, says
the Prineville Review. The
issue, who owns the water, still
remains to be settled, finally, it
is presumed, before the slate
board of water control. There
are more than lfiO ranchers us
ing water from upper Crooked
river and its tributaries, and the
plaintiffs concludee it would be
useless to enjoin 25 of them and
allow the others to proceed un
molested. Ten or fifteen of the defend
ants were down the first of the
week to consult with their attor
ney, W. A. Bell, and a great
sigh ol relief went up when they
were informed that the engin
ery of the law would not assist
in ruining what was left of their
crops. They have gone back
home to get what little water
they can from the drouth struck
river and continue irrigation.
LAND BOARD DEFERS
ACTION ON D.i.&P. CO.
Action regarding the pro
posed cancellation of the state's
Carey act contracts with the
Deschutes Irrigation & Power
Company was postponed yes
terday at a meeting of the Des
ert Land Board in Salem until
the next meeting of the board
which will be about the middle
As attorney for the receiver,
L A Adams asserted yesterday
that the company has complied
with its contract, in spite of the
difficulties under which it has
been laboring. Acting Gover
nor Bowermau took the posi
tion that the first duty of the
state was to protect the settlers
who are tryiug to make homes
under the ditches made by the
Yesterda', Attorneys Jesse
Stearns, representing the com
pany, A. King Willson, for tha
Eastern boldholders, and C. M.
Redfield, receiver, rushed to
Salem to be present at the hear
ing they expected the Land
Board to give the case.
There are 215,000 acres of
land involved in the reclamation
scheme, and it was obtained
from the state under two con
tracts, dated June 17, 1907, and
January 5, 1909. The lands,
when the system of irrigation
shall be completed, are estfma
ted to be worth several million
dollars. Water has been made
available for 65, 000 acres, which
have been sold, while ths re
ceiver is ready to place 13,000
additional acres as fast as set
tlers can be secured.
All of the lands have been
sold on the installment plan,
and the annual payments are
used in a measure to keep up
the ditches and dams through
which water is conveyed to the
Should the Land Board pro
ceed with the fulfillment of its
order to revert the lands to the
slate the entire investment
would be torn down. With that
point in view, Judge Bean yes
terday sent Receiver Redlield
to Salem armed with a request
that the Land Board refrain
from action until the pending
litigation shall be disposed of.
The receiver was obtained
through petition of bondholders
of the Deschutes Irrigation Com
pany residing at Columbus, O.,
who purchased the securities to
the extent of $359,000, and were
additionally secured by a first
mor'gage on the properly.
The loan was made for the pur
pose of building the irrigation
system, but proved insufficient,
and a second mortgage was
placed on the property. Mon
ey received for the sale of the
lands was intended by officers
of the company for the pay
ment of the second mortgage,
but the Ohio people stepped in
and asked that the fund be ap
plied to redemption of their
bonds. Upon the showing, the
company was declared insolvent
and a suit is now pending to
foreclose the mortgage.
Should the mortgage be fore
closed the state would be pro
tected, as the only way the
Eastern boldholders, or the ir
rigation company can get its
money back is to complete the
works and sell the land. Oie-
