A slight loosening up of the car

being noted by local shippers, and

ply of empties being furnished by the
two railroads tapping Bend, Is re
ported. It is believed that the sit
uation from now on, will become less
nnd lens critical.
Chief among tho shippers are the
lumber milts, where thousands of
dollars worth of orders bavo accumu
lated due to tho lack of transporta
tion. Approximately 30 per cent of
the weekly car orders is being filled,
I it is stuted. ,
The supply as yet Is Insufficient
to take care of tho daily output, and
In consequence the accumulation of
lumber Is continuing. How long

WASHINGTON, D. C, Jnn. 20.
Since tho fanner of the United States
is tho food producer tor a good share
of tho world, tho granting of cheaper
credit to tho farmer for the purpose
of enlarging his opportunities ar.d
cheapening tho cunt of hl:i produc
tion Is likely to liave an important
part In tho solution of tho groat cost
of living problem,
Tho records of tho United States
census offico show a constantly in
creasing trend toward tho cities.
Each, i year shows thnt thoro nro
moro persons to bo fed, whereas the
acrengo that has been producing food
nnd tho number of hands to cultivat'
thpso acres have not Increased In
tho aamo proportion.
It is patent therefore that to moot
this Increasing demand for fond moro
farms must ho established to pro
vldo homos for more producers and
the land now under cultivation must
bo farmed more carofully and with
moro nnd better equipment.
Provision of cheap capital for land
purchase and farm dovolopmont will
mean at least a partial realization
of thoso Ideals. 1

More than halt of the farms of the
United Stages are now in the hands
of tonants. The tenant is a transient
farmer and the temporary nature of
his operations prevents him from op
erating at maximum capacity. Short
leases nutko it out of tho question
for tenants to bo largo meat pro
ducers. The tenant Is usually a grain
farmer, nnd in many sections of the
country, a single cropper. He is en
gaged in hauling the fertility of his
landlord's soil to market.
The farm owner conserves the fer
tility of his soil by marketing his
crop through hts live stock and re
turning the fertility to the land. A
nation of land owners means a nation
with a constantly increasing capacity
to produce food for Its people.
A reduction of farm tenantry and
a substitution of a class of land own
ers means Improved social conditions
In the country and a more perma

ranto Case Goes to Supreme
Court, Say DeArmond.
Thai the action of the legislature
in passing the bill fixing the terms of
court In Deschutes county, and the
signing of the measure by the gover
nor, constitutes a . tacit recognition
of the existence of the county, was
the declaration of H. H. DeArmond,
district attorney, this morning. "By
passing a law that affects the coun
ty, the legislature has taken official
cognizance of our existence," be
Mr. DeArmond was not of the opin
ion that the passage of the measure
would necessarily put a stop to the
quo warranto proceedings now in
circuit court, but asserted that the
recognition accorded the county
could not but have an Important In
fluence in determining the decision
of the supreme court, should the case
be carried up to that tribunal. "The
measure constitutes an Important
obstacle In the way of the anti-dl-visionisu,"
was his opinion.
New Law to lie Final.
The district attorney stated that
the other measure pending in the
legislature, "creating the county of
Deschutes," would effectually put
a slop to all questioning of the au
thority of the new county to do bus
iness as a municipal corporation,, and
would make further bearings in the
quo warranto proceedings unneces
sary. He said that if it were not for
this, however, the matter would as
suredly have to be threshed out in
the supreme court, as the attorneys
for the county contend that the cir
cuit court lacks Jurisdiction in the

BILL TO ASSIST

TO ADVANCE $2500.
Slate Desert Land Board Officially
Goes to Bat to Help Paisley Pro
ject and Settlers in Their I
Fight for Water.
(Special to The Daily Bulletin)
SALEM, Jan. 20. The legislature
has now been formally asked to make
it possible for the Desert Land
Board to co-operate hi the appeal to
the supreme court to determine the
status of water rights on the Che-
aucan river. Representative Forbes
has presented a bill asking an ap
propriation of f2500 to meet the
state's share of the expense.
The circuit court decree to be ap
pealed from is that of Judge Daly, of
Lakevlew, which granted to the Che'
waucan Cattle Company all available
water of the river, thereby practic
ally, putting out of business the Pais
ley irrigation project.
Resolution Introduced. , .
The text of the bill, which was In
troduced in the House yfesterday,
chiefly comprises the following 'res- .
olutlon passed by the Desert Land
Board, on January 16:
"Whereas, It is of vital Interest
to the state in the future reclama
tion of arid lands, that an appeal,
be taken from the decree of the cir
cuit court of Lake county, in the
matter of the determination of the
rights to the waters of the Chewan
can river, and . -
"Whereas, It appears from the in
formation furnished by ' the State
Wate'r Boafdthat"said'v decree has
allowed an excessive amount of wa
ter to certain lands, thus preventing
the reclamation of other lands in that
vicinity and establishing a precedent
as to the duty of water for a largo
area of similar lands, which will ser
iously curtail future Irrigation de
velopment in the arid portion of our
state, and .
Refert to Appeal. .
"Whereas, it bas been mutually
agreed by and between the Irriga
tion Company, under contract for the
reclamation of 12,000 acres under
the Paisley Project, and the Desert
Land Board that the case be appealed
and carried to completion by the Ir
rigation Company, and that the Des
ert Land Board secure, it possible,
assistance 'from the state to the ex
tent of 2500; - -l .
"Now, therefore, be it Resolved,
that we, the members of the Desert
Land Board, earnestly request the
appropriation of $2500 by the
Twenty-fifth Legislative Asaombly of
Oregon to be used in payment of. tha
extension of the record, and the. pre- .
paration of briefs and other- legal
court costs, if any." ...:
Has Emergency Clause.
The Kill concludes as follows and
closes with ' an emergency clause,
which makes it operative immediate-''
