238 of the 8esslon Laws of 1915,
authorizing the payment of $20,000
to Alma D. Katz, of Portland, in sat
isfaction of his claims against the
Tumalo Irrigation project.
Katz was ono of the promoters of
the Columbia Southern project,
which first undertook the Irrigation
of the Tumalo section. On the fail
ure of the original company, the
state stepped in, and, making an ap
propriation of $450,000, completed
the project. A part of the work was
tho diversion of the waters of Cra
ter creek to flow Into Tumalo creek
and thereby provide an additional
water supply for the project.

On the completion of the work,
Katz came forward claiming that he
had a filing on the Crater creek wa
ters, and that much of the engineer
ing and other work done for the Co
lumbia Southern had been made use
of by tho state In completing the
project. For this the Desert Land
Board recommended a payment to
Katz of $20,000, and the bill was
passed tor 'the T915"lotf!alanlrc1:'t "Mr!
