Klamath Falls, 'Or., Oct. 21 The
drainage of the marsh lands on r the
I Lower Klamath lake Is now '"probable.
- At the Inception ofthe"Klamalh Recln
itiation . project Hie reclfflmlng of these
, J&nds Avasone of the main features of
' , the work, tobe accomplished by. the
' government. Jt ia. "estimated that be
tween 80,000 and lOo.OOO acres of tula
. lands border the Lower Klamath.
t; The 'fertility anI- productiveness of
the . marsh lands. has been . a mooted
Question for several years, v The gov
ernment made limited experiments on,
a-tract of land, donated by Abe! AJ.v
; for. ah experimental farm. ' Some ot
, , the experts pronounced the soils unfit
''. , for farming and advised the abandon-
nienti-of the , reclamation of the -tula
'" lands. The 1 marsh ' lapd.. owners . were
not satisfied' with the; reports-made by
v ' nien lij the employ -of ; the reclamation
service and .continued experiments , at
r their' own . expense Samples of soils
, were - sent : to various - experts .on: the
i , Pacific coast The results from the e
". .'. periments and tie .reports from the ex
- v ports 'employed by various agricultural
'oplleges. were more (nan- satisfactory.
' "i' , Bloekea' iBajMa.Owaaf.!t-'
' ' The swamp Jahdowners ' formed;. an
organisation and hiivo for the past three
i 3(ears endeavored to get the government
interested .; in i taking up this part of
, the project sgaln. The chief drawback
to , the drainage' of- -the : marsh Is' the
' fact that Hhe' Van' Brimmer Irrigating
" ' canal, which supplies water for about
't 2000 acres of ' land, takes its water sup:
'ply from the Lower Klamath. The gov-;
' ernment canal . has ample water to sup
'' ply these lands,, but it has been impos
' "' uibls for the marsh land men to arrange
to have the Van - Brimmer : ditch, sup
. ' filed from the main - canal of the Kla-
math projects ' ' - ' " ';. .v '?
' ' , When the Southern Paciflo company
built its dike across the marsh, through
Abel , Ady, an arrangement was mado
'' ip Install gates at the channel, so that
, , the flood waters of. the Klamath river,
, which back into the Lower Klamath
lake,- could -bey shut ; out .- Ady at that
tlme; controlled 'the greater, part of the
marsh lands and laid, thai foundation
for the, reclamation . of the vast body
of land 1 that will greatly enhance the
wealth of Klamath county. Had the
plans proposed by Ady at that time been
lOllowed the, swamps bordering the
Lower Klamath would today be fertile
' farms and provide forage for! thousands
!,'. of cattle...' "::; ;ft'.',' .".';.! '

Should the hmrsY lands of the Kla
