IRRIGATION CONVENTION "
IN SESSION AT PORTLAND
The Most Enthusiastic, Business-Like, Earnest, Able Body of
Men Ever Assembled in Oregon.
THE LARGEST DELEGATIONS ARE FROM
CROOK, PAKER AND UMATILLA COUNTIES
STABBED TO DEATH!
According to program, the National Irrigation Association conven-
ion convened In Portland at 10 o'clock. Large delegations from the east-
rrt portion of the state are present, and the town Is full of people from
the entire state of Oregon. Caucuses of the various delegations were held
yesterday and various propositions and measures were framed, which will
e brought up before the convention. The president, secretary and execu
tive chairman of tne National Congress are present, as are also the govern
ment experts. Indications point to the fact that much business will be
transacted at this congress and that a hard fought battle will be seen
between the private Irrigation companies and those in favor of public
r government work.
Portland, Nov. 18. Amid fluttering
banners, flying flags and many colored
designs, emblematic of the wondrous
alms of the movement, the Oregon
