STATE LAND BOARD AND AT
TORNEYS COME TO TERMS
Regarding Reclamation of Arid Lands
Under the Carey Law and the Ore
gon Arid Land Law; How Arid
Land May be Reclaimed.
The state laud board and the at
torneys for Irrigation companies have
at last agreed upon a form of con
tract which shall be used In agree
ments to be made for the reclama
tion of arid land under the Carey act
and the Oregon land law, says the
Portland Oregouian. There are sever
al points upon which the irrigation
companies and the members of the
state land board differed. Some of
these were satisfactorily adjusted,
and the others have been settled, pre
sumably with satisfaction to all con
"Under the contract now to be given
the "irrigation companies will be per
mitted to take posession of the arid
land and reclaim it. In the case of
large tracts they will have 10 years
in which to complete the work, but
in the case of small tracts the time
that may be deemed reasonable will
be designated. Work must be com
menced within six months after the
contract is signed, and at least ten
per cent of it must be completed in
the first year. Ail expense of recla
mation must be paid by the company
accepting the contract, and for its
re-imbursement the company is given
the land for the cost of reclamation
as estimated by the state engineer.
Water for Irrigation.
It is provided that the annual
charge for water for irrigation pur
poses shall be fixed by the state land
.board; that the company shall main
tain the canals, latterais and works
in good condition, and furnish water
during the irrigation season, according
to such reasonable rules and regula
tions as the company may adopt;
provided, however, that the rules re
garding the distribution of water
shall be supject to the approval of
Each subdivision of the land re
claimed must bear such proportion of
the entire lien as its value bears o
the value of the whale tract. The
clause regarding sales to settlers is
It is further agreed between the
parties hereto that the date of the ex
ecution of the contract between the
secretary of the interior and the
state of Oregon any bona fide set
tler who is a citizen of the United
States, or who has declared his inten
tion to became such, -desires to settle
upon or become the purchaser of
not more than ICO acres of the land
set aside and described herein, shall
sign an agreement in duplicate with
the party of the first part (the irri
gation company) one copy of which
shall be filed with the state land
board, and when such applicant shall
file his resease of lean for reclama
tion, the deed of conveyance to him
from the state will be issued without
State Engineer G. L. Dillman is now
in eastern Oregon, examining land ,
for the reclamation of which, appli
cation has been made. He will esti
mate the cost of reclamation and re
port to the board, whereupon con
tracts will be entered into with the
Location of Largest Tracts.
Crook county contains the largest
tracts for which application for re
clamation has been made. A tract
in the central part of Crook county
comprises about 80,000 acres. The
.contract for reclamation has been ap
plied for by the Pilot Butte Develop
ment company, of which A. M. Drake
is president. ,In the proceedings be
fore the state land board the company
has been represented by A. King
Wilson. Another tract, ly'tg part in
Crook county and part in Klamath
county, comprises 78,000 aces. The
Oregon Development company cf
which J. E. Morson is president, is
asking for the contract for the deel
opment of this large tract of land.
C. M, Idleman, attorney for the com
pany, was before the state land,
board last week, presenting the,
claims of his company.
