The Otis Valley Irrigation company
(as filed an application with the
jtate engineer's office here for per
mission to construct a reservoir on
Cottonwood creek Jn Harney, county
for the storage of 3289 acre feet of
. water, for a supplemental water sup
ply for the irrigation of 1773 acres
of land. The proposed development
involves the construction of an earth
fill dam, 75 feet high and 394 feet
long at an estimated cost of $38,000.
;, Frank Kehberg of "Corvallis has
made application for water rights

county for domestic use.
McNeal was committed to the state
hospital in 1917 but was later released
as having recovered. He has suffered
the effects of disease for years and is
afflicted with the nervous malady
known as "St Vitus Dance." As a io
suit of these after effects he was in a
pitiful physical condition which led to
the Wednesday incident.
THE CATITAL JOUENAL
t lights Planned
By Company Here
Salem is about to line up with the
progressive cities of the northwest and
may soon be headquarters for an avia
tion company by which a local air
plane passenger service will be estab
lished, A company la now being organized
to purchase a three passenger airplane
and secure the services of a pilot The
stock is all to be owned by Salem par
ties and the plane operated from Sa
lem only. Already the company has
secured a lease of 50 acres adjoining
the fair grounds. These grounds have
been pronounced satisfactory by all
pilots who have made landings.
While there has been subscribed al
most enough stock to organize the
company to purchase the $10,000 air
plane, there is a feeling among those
who are interested in Salem securing
the plane, that there should be some
assurance from the public In general
that the company will be patronized
locally to some extent before the deal
In order that business may be as
sured here in Salem if the plane is
purchased those interested in the com
pany are suggesting that possibly busi
ness could be assured if a special price
of $7.50 a passenger per flight was
offered, as the plane will accommo
date two In addition to the pilot.
Flying two passengers at a time with
much less noise than in the old type
of plane, makes the air trip much
more enjoyable. For this reason the
company hopes to secure enough
flights from Salem and vicinity to en
courage it to purchase at an early
In these flights the plane will rise to
such a height that there may be plain
ly seen on a clear day the towns of
Independence, Turner, Dallas,. Mon
mouth and Silverton, besides a most
wonderful birdseye view of the Wil
Should the company be given some
assurance of local patronage It will
arrange for local flights over Salem
and vicinity for $7.50 each and a flight
to Portland for $15 each.
As the gasoline shortage Is rather
acute Just at present, the company ex
pects to arrange for a special high test
gas, so as not to call In any way upon
the local supply of gas.

the officers that the outrage had been
committed by two men who had
