Baker City Man Urges Local Action
O. L. Miller, of Baker City, has the
following to say In the BaVer City
"Our oportunity to secure some
benefit from the recent Irrigation law
and our duty in the matter, to mo,
seems very plain. The government
has simply made It possible to avail
ourselves of certain money, the net
product of the sale of government
lands, to be used for redeeming and
lands. There is $911,330,000 of the
money available for use in Oregon.
The government will expend this
money for the redemption of arid
lands in Oregon, If we show Ihe gov
ernment officials where it can be used
in a practical way. The governmert
must be convinced that when the
money is expended that it will actu
ally redeem arid lands and that the
salo of the water rights will return
the money so expended by the gov
ernment, to be again used In the re
demption of other lands.
'If I am right, our duty is to pre
sent a practical, feasible, Irrigation
proposition to the government engi
neers, we must show a tract or ana
land, which has sufficient watershed
about it to furnish water for filling
reservoirs of sufficient capacity to ir
rigate the whole tract In other
words, show a sufficient supply to ir
rigate the lands. If upon investigs
tlon by the government engineers
they find the land suitable and the
proposition practical they will pro
ceed to construct the necessary rese--voir,
ditches and distribution system
so that the settlers thereon can re
deem the land and cultivate It.
"The question then may bo asked,
what will the government engineer
want to find as necessary to Induce
them to recommend the proposition?
"They will certainly want an are
of land large enough to be worth therr
attention. It must be land suitable
for agricultural purposes, that Is,
level enough for Irrigation, free from
rocky bluffs, and alkali. There must
be sufficient water for all purposes,
and suitable reservoir sites where the
water can be stored. There must be
a market for the product so that there
will be an inducement for settlers t
take the land and agree to pay the
"Wa mav show the eovcmment en
gineers all the Irrigation propositions
In Baker county and still not be able
to get one of them accepted. We may
not have a proposition large enough
for their consideration. We will sin.
ply have to try and do the very best
we can. Then it will not be no fault
of ours If we fall.
"What will it mean if we succeed
In getting the proposition of 16,000
acres of arid land redeemed by the
proposed planT It will mean the in
vestment of not less than $60,000 o
$76,000 in the construction of tho
works necessary for the storage and
distribution of the water by the gov
ernment It means that at least W
families will settle this land and im
prove It. It means that the settler
must be an actual, bona fide settler
and that not more than 160 acres can
be taken by any one. It means an in
vestment of many thousands of dol
lars in Improvements on the land. It
means the production of many thous
ands of dollars worth of farm products
which will find a market In Bak3r
City in exchange for store goods, 't
means better roads through tho lands
now not occupied. It means school
houses and school teachers and other
evidences of civilization. It means
thousands of dollars added to the tax
able property of Baker county, and
all these and much more will be found
where today roam herds of fuss tailed
cayuses. Jack rabbits and a few hun
"Then our watch-word for the next
year should be, 'Irrigate the Sag5
Brush Lands.' "

Federation of Labor, who spent a cou

day for his home In Portland. While
here ho did much toward reviving en
thusiasm among the local labor
To a reporter for the Bast Oregon
lan Mr. Harry said:
"When I came to Pendleton I found
Interest somewhat languishing among
the labor unions. A great many unto

dampen the ardor of the unionist, but
they are deserving of a great deal
of credit for keeping themselves in

"I came to Pendleton last week, and
after stopping and arranging for a
mass meeting for Wednesday night,
went on east. I arrived in Baker
City and held a rousing mass meeting
there and also in Sumpter. At the
conclusion of the meeting In Sumpter
I organized three different unions.
"In Baker City there has been con

against his reign and nominated a
new man to succeed him In the chair.
The election Is to be held Id a few
days and the laborers feel confident
of electing their man, W. J. Lachner
who Is a conscientious man and in
unity with the uniors of tho town.
"I have now become quite well ac
quainted with the labor situation in
Eastern Oregon and I can say that
the growth of the union movement
has been phenomlnal. Everywhere 1

WE8TON A CLOSED TOWN.
The Law Is Now 8trletly Enforced In
Tho Sunday closing crusade at
Weston has resulted in the closing ol
all buslneps establishments, except
those exempted by the state law.
Tho movement first related only to
tho "saloons, and a card resort and
candy and tobacco stand. Two of tho
three saloon men, ana tho tobacco
store proprietor, have since kept open
for two successive Sundays and paid
their fines. As tho result of agita
tion, unwise or otherwise, all busi
ness not exempt Is now embraced.
Sole action In tho matter has been
taken by Mayor Best, Independently
of the city council, and he has as
sumed responsibility for it.
As gambling was suppressed some
time ago by Mayor Best's direction,
Weston Is now quite a moral town,
and patrons of the State Normal can
have no complaint on this score, it
Is understood that If the saloon men
rebel too strenuously, the mayor
threatens prosecution under the statu
law on a charge of selling liquor to
minors. Weston Leader.
