IN '99 THERE WERE 329 UMA

Ho Is dlrectlv representing tho
bureau of wenlth, debt nnd tnxatlon,
nnd Is collecting statistics as to the
reeeints. expenditures. assessed
values, tax rates, resources and lia
bilities of counties and municipalities
in this state. This Is tho third county
he has visited on this mission, tho
others being Baker nnd Union. Ho is
also collecting irrigation statistics,
and from them some very Interesting
facts nre gleaned.
In 1S39 thero were in the stnto 4,fi3G
Irrigated farms of greater or less ex
tent, of which 329 were In Umatilla
county. This county showed an in
crease In tho number nf Irrigated
farms from 1889 to 1899 of 122.3 per
cent. In 1899 there were in the state
3SS.310 Irrigated acres, of which
G.16S were In Umatilla county.
The cost of the ditches In opera
tion In the state In 1899 was $1,838,
782. The ditches in operation in
Umatilla county in that 'year cost
$30,C02. The value of tho crops pro
duced that year in the entire state
from irrigated ground in Umatilla
county that year was $118,923, divid
ed as follows: hay nnd forage, $59,
289; small fruits, $23,317; orchard
fruits. $S,-lu0: vegetables, $20,296;
cereals, $3,63(1; other crops, $3,929.
Definite nnd reliable statistics as to
the Increase In length of ditches, cost,
area Irrigated and value of products
during the pa3t four years cannot
yet be had, nnd will not he obtaina
ble until about July 1 noxt. when
they will bo sent out from the fed
oral census department. Tho collec
tion of such information is in progress
A very Interesting bit of informa
tion in this connection is that the
average original cost per aero of
bringing tho land under water that
was Irrigated In this county in 1899
wns only $7.11. This being tho orig
inal cost merely, no item of repairs
or running expenses being consider
ed. The same year 1SU9 the avor
ago value per acre of the products
from the irrigated lands In this coun
ty was $23, tho balance being nearly
three to one on tho profit sldo of the
One thing that should not bo for
gotten is that tho average cost per
acre ror getting land under water in
Oregon is somewhat less than tho
avorago cost per aero throughout tho
entire United States. This is be
cause of tho number and proximity
of tho streams flowing through tho
semi-arid regions, which are cut up
Into comparatively small districts by
the numerous mountain ranges from
which tho streams flow. On UiIb ac
count the main ditches are usually
much shorter than ditches of tho
same capacity In almost any other Ir
rigated portion of the United States.
The loss of water from evaporation
nnd seepage is much less.

tial that all tho members of tho hoard

ities aro that the terms of the spec
ial bond election will bo formally
drafted tomorrow ovoning, and a date
sot at tho same meeting for tho election.
