liig & Engineering company. . , I
The building will cost something over

southwest corner of the campus. It is
to be one story In height with a high
basement. On the first floor will be a
g neral reading room, a periodical read
ing room, reference, room, the larga
stack rooms proper, cataloguing and U-"
Iranian's rooms, besides the commodi
ous corridors throughout. In the base
ment are to be a stack room the same

large lecture rooms, packing and boiler
; rinlshed la Marble.
All vestibules and corridors are to be
tiled and decorated with marble. The
exterior of the walls is to be finished

The college ' library, which numbers
nearly 18,000 bound volumes heslde un
bound publications, Is to be completely
overhauled, and recatalogued and for
this rurpose Miss Martha E. Spaffoi'd
has been engaged to do the work.- Miss
Spafford is a graduate of the University
of Vermont, where she was one of the
college librarians and has had consid
erable experience in revising tho cata-i

Library to Be Effective,
With 'tho new building and the sys
tematic catalogue of the present li
brary, much more efficient work can be
lone In many lines, a thing which has
been practically imposisble with the old
cramped quarters in Marsh hall, where
It has been housed for 15 years. Then,
too, with the J30.000 endowment which
has just been obtained for the upkeep
of the building and library, additional
volumes will be added and in much
larger numbers than heretofore The
new building will be the most ornamen
tal on the campus, '

"Of course." said Mr. Hopson. Vi can

The result of this announcement will
in all probability be ithe unanimous
adoption this afternoon of a resolution
favoring the west extension by the con
gress, which represents all of the fac
tions that heretofore have been scrap
ping over this project. The proJec will
Involve an expenditure of approximate
ly $3,000,000, and It will take about 18
years to carry it to completion and get
the land under cultivation.
Dr. Henry. Waldo Con, -who was to
have aired his grievances on behalf of
Btanfleld, explained upon the announce
ment of Mr. Hopson that his, paper
which he had so carefully prepared was
now of no use and that he would not
read it. Instead he said he thought it
in order to congratulate the entire com
munity upon the splendid solution of
what had appeared a , most difficult
problem. He felt assured that every
body would be Pleased and ...that all
would give their strongest support to
the project.
Great Thing's Ahead.
"I think everybody will be pleased,'
exclaimed Dr. Coo, "for the report as
outlined . by Mr. Hopson provide ; for
every Interest and it leaves for a stilt
larger project the waters of the John
Day river, which are sufficient to irri
gate and make productive 200,000 acres
of very excellent land that will' some
day be populated by 200,000 people. We
should all work in harmony and take
up these projects, one after the other,
as quickly as possible, for It Will moan
the prosperity of the state and Its
people and give homes to new settlers."
The board appointed to make recom
mendations on tho project is composed
of A. P. Davis, chief of engineers of tho
reclamation service; D. C. Ilonnig, con
sulting engineer; H. Dr Newell, project
engineer; O. P. Morton, legal, assistant,
all of the reclamation service.
Engineer's Address.
State Engineers, h. Lewis read a
very interesting paper on "Water Rights
in Oregon," explaining the worktag of
the new law adopted by the legislature-
of 1900, giving a definite system of
water titles.
"The doctrine of beneficial use was
taken as the basis for such system of
titles," said Mr, Lewis. "This hew law
rests . primarily upon the declaration
that 'all waters within the state from
all sources of water supply belong to
the public,' and that the state, through
Its police power, is charged with the ad
ministration of this property in such a
way as to promote the peace and safety
of its citizens. ,..,'..
"To administer this property a board
was created, composed of the state engi
neer and the superintendent of each of
the two divisions Into which the state
was divided, t, , , r-
"The systematio determination and re
cording of existing water rights , is one
of the Important duties of this board.
Water Keoord. '
' "The record is the foundation for po
lice regulations necessary for. the prciV
tectlon of the- individual user. It la
the basis for computing the surplus
water In a stream as a guide for new
investments. It will also serve aa a
basis for the distribution of waterr-by
the water masters, for the protection of
new as well as, of old rights.
"The state is Interested in these de
terminations to see that no more water
Is granted than can beput to beneficial
use. The greater.. lhov,amount allowed
old Bppropfiators. the less will "remain
for new approprlators, and the ultimate
area which can be served by each stream
will be reduced accordingly. The indi
vidual in most cases la anxious to se
cure a water right certificate because
it Is final and is the first record evi
dence of his right obtainable. It Is to
his water title what a patent from tho
United States Is, to his land title.
t"These " f undamental .prinoiplesessti
tlal to S"proper definition of a water
right are all embraced In the water
right certificate to be issued under the
new law and are briefly as follows!
'Beneficial use, , Jts : , priority, purpose,
period and place of jue.' ', , ( f i j
. Water ssonopolles.
"Discussing these In order we have
as a basis of the right the great under
lying principle of beneficial use. It, Is
due to. this principle that we have no
water monopolies in. Oregon. ;
"For he information of the public
and the particular benefit of those hav
ing subsequent rights, the maximum
"The present owner may have recently
come into possession of the right after
many transfers from the original pro
prietor, but be must establish the date
when water waa first diverted for his
land, or when legal steps were first
taaen Dy the original owner to estab
lish the right The water rlghj for a
single ditch may bave several dates of
priority In case of subsequent enlargements.
Rights have been initiated in the
past for some particular purpose, and
the priority must bo .established -for
that purpose. If a right was acquired
for mining and Irrigation, but no water
used for irrigation purposes for a num
ber of years, the right for such use
should be denied. A-change In use
from power or mining; which does not
consume the water, to that of irriga
tion wmcn consumes a large part of tha
supply, would materially af feet . condi
tions on the stream. A valuable or
chard below may be ruined from the
effects of such change.
"The period of use is an Important
element A right for summer Irrigation
would not give the owner right to con
vey water through ditch for storage
during winter. Right for mining during
whiter could not be extended for use of
water In summer. . u . '
Stability of Tltlea.
"All water used in the state and for
any and all-uses should be made appur
tenant to the place'..of .use. Otherwise
there can be no stability to water titles,
and tho public records In the centra
office wlil-be-of little value.
In less than three years .2084 appli
cations have been filed under, the new
law. Of these 1024 have been approved
and 400 have lapsed or been canceled
from the records. These permits involve
the construction of 2600 miles- of canal
and 163 reservoirs at a total cost of
132.250,000. .
The wster code has been in success

which time no serious defects have de
veloped. .. . :
It will take from five to 10 years
