Prncrnss of an adjudication of
claims to water rights in the IIoi'l
river watershed now before tho circuit
court here is being retarded while
(he r.tate water board concludes work
ol issuing a finding on claims advanc
ed by tho Ml. Hood Water company,
one of the oldest irrigation concerns,
the system of which waters land in
(ho Mt. Hood aor-llon. The water case
waa transferred from the state water
board to the circuit court hero last
fall when a formal finding of the
board was presented to the court.
The state water board has been en.
gaged since 191G In an investigation
of the case, which resulted from lit
igation brought by tho Oregon Lum
ber company versus the East Fork Ir
rigation district. Tho lumber concern,
the Dee mill of which Is driven by
electricity developed from waters of
the oast nnd middle forks of Hoo.l
river, sought to restrain tho irrigation
district from making full use of tho
.waters claimed from the east fork.
The case was appealed from a deci
sion in circuit court favorable to the
irrigation district. Tho supremo court
remanded tho case with instructions
that tho state water board make a
lull Investigation nnd return findings
that would bring about an adjudica
tion of water right claims In the dis
trict, j
Tho decision of tho state water
board was favorablo to Irrigatlonlsts
In every instance, and tho Oregon
Lumber company and tho Pacific
Powor & Light company interposed
objections, which wore argued before
tho local court in January. Several
minor nrgumonts havo sinco been
hoard by Circuit Judge Fred VV. Wil
son. The objoctlon of tho Mt. Hood
Water company, however, Involved
tho taking of adit tonal testimony, and
it was referred back to tho stato wal
or honwl.' On rocolpt of tho board's
findings, in the Mt. Hood objoctlon,
Judge Wilson will proceed, it is stated
by local - attorneys interested in the
litigation, to reviow tho voluminous
tostlmony and render his docislon.
Tho work, however, it is expected will
roiiulro nil summer, and a decision Is
not expected boforo fall. The trans
cript of proceedings of tho water
board nnd testimony fill about 1,500
pages, and briefs filed by attorneys
require another 500 pages. The trans
cript Is the most voluminous over tlJ

agreements, orders of the railroad ad
ministration constitute just and fea-'
sonable rules for all carriers parlies
to the dispute. It must, therefore, re
fuse the indefinite extension of the
notional agreements on ad such car
riers as urged by the employes.
"The board alno deems It inadvis
able to terminate at qnce, Us direc
tion "of decision number two (govern
ing wage and workfng rules) and to
remand tho dispute to the individual
carlers and their employes.' Such a
course would leave many carriers and
their emplojcs wli bout .any rules reg

"If the board should recommend the
dispute to the individual carriers and
their employes and should keep the di
rection of decision number two in ef
fect until agreements should be ar
rived at ,it is possible that agree
ments might not be entered into.
"The board believes nevertheless,
that certain subject matters now reg
ulated by rules of the national agree
ments are local In nature' and require
consideration of "local conditions. It
also believes that other subject mat
ters now so regulated are general In
character and that substantial uni
formity in rules regulating such sub

The decision, while thus making
concessions on both sides, recognizes
the prlr.jiple of national agreements
on general subjects, which was stren
uously lodght by executives. '
It also will relieve, it is predicted,
the railroads from many stringent
rules which, they claim, are costing
them millions of dollars monthly
through .excessive wages, overtime
and bonuses.

garded the decision as one of the
greatest victories for organized labor

As no white soldiers were reported

that the skeletons found Wednesday

killed In this war, or of a party of
white prospectors, returning from the
Idaho country nnd killed by t:ie Dan
dlts who Infested this district in
the early days. The fact that all of
the skulls found' were crushed, would
seem to indicato.that the latter hypo
'thesis is correct, Mrs. Crandall ex
plained. The crushed skulls would
mean that all of the persons were'
killed while asleep. The McClellan

by the fact that it was common cus

to use his saddle as a pillow while

,So far in this very brief dagh some'

king has been an awful bust. , k
His hitting has been good euoush-
'.550, but his fielding has been .Just
about the same fifty-fifty.
With a roll around his waist that
has him about 30 pounds overweight,
the Bambino is too fat to bend over
after them and too slow to get back
under them. In company with Bob
Meusel in right and Ping vBodlo In
left the Babe is helping the Yanks to
j get the worst outfield in baseball.
When the. Bambino gets his home
run machihery in working order he
may win many games for the Yanks
but he'll lose many more if he doesn't
1'get in condition to field as he did
