A fatal accident occurred on the
top of the Criterion grade last Sun
day In which M. J. W. Willlami), a
young matron of 21 years lout her
life and tho horses she had Wen riding-
wai to badly injured tlmt it had
to be killed. According to the story L pjatfom
told by Gorald Wilcox, by wko L,u to tho p
auto the woman wan struck, Mrs.
Willlamt was riding horseback and
was on her way to the Dave Wilson
place. She had Just painted the Kra
mer lane when her horse took
fright at a passing truck, which was
covered with canvas, tho end of
which fluttered in the wind. Tho
anlmul began to prance and did not
take notice of an approaching auto,
which was being driven by Gerald
Wilcox, who was moving from Eta
cada to Antelope. As the machine
approached tho horse made a dash
across the road. Mr, Wilcox saw a
collision was imminent and put on
the brakes and steered for the ditch.
Just before the cor left the road the
horse and auto collided. The horse
was thrown to one side and Mrs.
Williams thrown from the saddle di
rectly in the track of the auto.
Tracks show that the wheels of the
machine had skidded fully three car
lengths, also that one wheel had
passed over" tho bdrfrofthrwo'lnair
As soon as tho car stopped Mr. Wil
cox picked up the victim, who had
crawled from beneath the machine,
and brought her to Maupin where
Dr. Elwood attended her. The
physic-Inn found that Mrs. Williams
had sustained severe injury to her
chest as well as having suffered in
tcrnal injuries. He took several
stitches to close a wound in her

and dispatched the suffering equine.
Mr. Wilcox stated that ho notic
ed the horse and rider in front of
his auto and immediately put on tho
brakes and turned tho machine to
wards tho ditch. He has no recol
lection of running over her form,
but the tracks in the soft earth bears
out tho idea that such was done.
The tracks on one side of tho ditch
are continuous, while on tho other
side is tho impress of the woman's
body with the auto track broken on
either side of tho place where she
lay. The driver of tho auto did the
only humano thing possiblo nt tho
time. His chief thought was to got
the woman to a phyciciun and he
burned up the road to get there as
quickly as possible. He reported tho
accident as soon as ho had sum

the horse be killed. Mr. Wilcox'B

The irrigation question in Oregon
is not a politcal one, and the solu
tion of tho problem will require
careful, intelligent and , sincere
study and action to the end that the
farmers bn tho irrigation ' projects
may not be penalized for their In
dustry, confidence in tho stae and
show of good faith.
We should see that . the farmers
now on irrigated lands , who , have
shown their good faith are fully
protected. Those farmers who are
making or have made good their
obligations to the Irrigation dis
tricts and who are contributing to
the productivity of ; the state, should
be given the benefit of every pos
sible means of protection.
In some of the irrigation districts
many of the settlers have suffered
undue hardships and dire misfor
tune, due to improper organization
of districts and to the activities of
unscrupulous speculators. The next
legislature should, in so far as pos
sible, provide legislation for the re
organization arid restoration of the

The unrestrained power asked in

with the present laws which safe

it appeal to some minds as a feasible
