RIVER ISLE TO
State Loses In High Court's
View; Judge Walker
The state supreme court. In
an opinion written by Justice
Rand, yesterday affirmed the de
cree of Judge Arlle Walker " of
the Polk county circuit court, , in
a suit, brought by the state land
board1 against James Imlah and
others, to 'quiet title to what the
state claimed is an Island
formed by the current of the
Willamette river. The lower
court held for the defendants.
.' The alleged Island is located
near the west bank ot the Wil
lamette river, approximately one
mile north ot Salem. The state
claimed title to the Island by
virtue of its ownership and sov
ereignty over the beds of navi
gable streams within Its borders.
The defendants own the lands
bordering the west bank of the
river directly west of the prem
ises in controversy, and, claimed
the same as an accretion to their
Proof Burden on State
"The burden of proving the
state's ownership rested upon
the state," read the : supreme

Include much of the i disputed
territory and if it should be as
sumed that the low water mark
was Identical with ; the exterior
boundaries of the patented
lands, then the lands lying be
tween such exterior lines and
the low water mark of the river
are all attached to the patented
lands and constitute merely an

we think the rule 'once a ripar
ian owner, always a riparian
owner' should be applied."

Worry Over fatter

the purpose, will be in favor of
the state of Oregon, according
to a telegram received here Sat
urday by C. E. Stricklln, state
engineer, from Otis Smith, chair
man ( of the federal j power com
mission at Washington.
The . telegram was fn reply to
a Query sent to Washington yes
terday in which Stricklln de
clared his opposition to having
the waters of the stream re
leased to the California-Oregon
Power company or any other

viously had been advised that
negotations were Vln progress
whereby the power company
hoped to obtain release of the
waters for development pur
poses. Stricklln set out in his corres
pondence with the federal re
clamation ' department that the
attorney general of Oregon had
held that the . waters ot the
Klamath river were not subject
to appropriation until a release
had been signed by the proper
official i of the reclamation bu
