THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 22 1928 Number 3 YORK ON CLEM LAKE I SI FOR SEASON Work Stopped For Winter Will Be Resumed ia Spring What's Been Don MAUPIN MAN PICTURED WITH COYOTE MUMMY Oregoniaa Correspondent Ccli Pointt Miied When Writing of Trapper Fulkerson Work on the dam wai closed for season on November 7, due to the continued rain and anow. The work will be returned as soon a. weather will permit. The dam construction ha progressed as foluws: A con duit pipe trench wai dug on the south i Ida of the lite, where the Kelly ditch outfit '40 yean ago atarted their 'anal. The conduit pipe wm laid and secured. A croM section dead wall (to cut off seepage) was installed. This wall extends three feet aoove the creek level and six feet into the hard pan under the lake bed for 110 feetr cross section. Mud sillH In parallel rows eight feet apart he low and behind the cut-off wall, were laid and rocked in. Cross logs on the mud liUa were also luid. These crosa-crib loirs form the base of the angle uprights that support the face of the dam. An apron was pinned to these croru logs for tem porary spill way purposes over win ter. The 36-inch conduit pipe 40 feet long was guarded by a plank sheer apron and left open to tnkc cart of the winter flow. The 12x12 timbers that tic the toe of the dam fare to the dead wivll were all trucked in from the Sandy Lumber company's mill, as the im proved highway wit made it practi cal to get the lumber there. The company must clear off a strip of brush and timber around the lake under the proposed water line of the new dam, to comply with the for estry regulations. It is being con sidered to put in a portable mill to cut the good logs into lumber. That lumber could be used to good ad vantage in building cabins and cot tages at Clear lake for the use of vacationists, tourists, week-end par ties, fishermen and hunter.v Clear lake is but two and one half hours out of Portland by auto. It Is the first big lake that offers the outdoors lover a recrcotional play ground, coupled with good fish ing, boating, etc. Wm. J. Mickey, pre:ident of the Wapinitia Irigation company made W. W. Belcher, an Orcgonlan correspondent who should have known better, appeared in the Sun day sports section of that paper with a story concerning R. C. Fulkerson, predatory animal hunter located at Maupin. Belcher stated that "near Maupin, which lies in the bend of an elbow of the beautiful Crooked j IUver, in central Oregon," etc; re-1 sides It. C. Fulkerson, government trapper. Then the story goes on to j tell about the man who han created a : vacuum In the ranks of coyotes in J this section. ; j The story was a good one antt I contained facts in the main, but j when Mr. Belcher located Maupin! in a bend of Crooked river, he is 1 ri!tv off from the real geographical ! locution of tho place. Maupin is on the Deschutes more than oO miles ! from Crooked river. ' LONG TIME IN RECOVERY Walter Knight Recovering Serious Operation From Thanksgiving Proclamation At all times and In all places, men have gathered together at the close of ths harvest to give thankw to the Divine Power which has blessed their labors and mnde Hhtm to prosper. Deep rooted acknowledgment to a guiding Providence which I.-, above and be yond the work of human minds and human hands. Our national observance of an "annual day of Thanksgiving is a heritage from the Pilgrim Fathers, who assembled at the turn of the year to offer prayer and praise to Almighty God from hom came their strength to endure daily hard, hip and to faca unknown danger. It is fitting that we should reverently continue in this drly of prosperity and security the institution they founded amidst ad versity and peril. Now, therefore, ln conformity with the proclamation of the President of the United States which comes an a recurring re minder of our national unity ln the perpetuation of this American custom, I, I. L. Patterson, Governor of Oregon, do proclaim Thurs day, November 2'Jth, 1928, as Thanksgiving Day, and do hereby' set it aside as a putflic holiday. Let u on this day give thought to man's fellowship with nature in achieving the fruits of the harvest. Let us confirm and strengthen the ties of family life and renew the bond of hearth and home. Let us express our gratitude for peace by extending the spirit of good will to all the world and for prosperity by lending generous and kindly aid to those in (orrow or need. Let us give thanks for manifold material blessings by turning our minds and hourta to the things of the spirit. In Testimony Whereof. I havn hcnwntD set my hri'd and caa ed the seal of the Stntc of Oregon to ic hereunto affixed this litth day of November, A. D. 1928. (Seal) I. L. PATTERSON. By the Governor: Governor. IAL K.

Hunt the agent visited the site of the Hunt . :hedring sheds and sheep corrals, tool! views of the grounds surround ing and secured an option on a tract there. The agent stated it was the in tention of hia company to put in a , large plant here and that work on same would begin as soon as all plans were perfected. The pocsibil ity of a side track was gone into, the ground looked over and the line practically decided on. The Union ia one of the largest oil companys in the country. It is well located in The Dalles, but reali zes that considerable business ia es caping it by not having a plant in this section. Heretofore the Stand ard has been the only pil company to keep a plant here, although the Shell company has several users of its product, which ia hauled from The Dalles. With the Union placing a plant in Maupin the business will be divided and at the same time business of the place increased, for employes of the company will neces sarily be compelled to live here and their trade will naturally by given to local merchants. Just when work will begin on the new plant is as yet unknown, but is expected to start soon as a few finor details have been worked out Marcus Sherear, Ira Kidder, Cyril and Orville Fralcy.

Ten years more of such progress will stagger the agination. Among the prominent farmers who have pledged aid and who haw in part contributed to make the dnm at Clear lake a fact are Frank Batty, J.

The assistance has come in form, of produce, hone feed, hay, small checks, up to substantial sums. J. S. Brown and L. C.

The Several times recently the valves on the pipe line at the reservoir have been clcced, thus throwing additional work on the rams. Several times lately the rams have had to have at tention, because of the valve- closing, thus entailing a considerable expense and much worry on the part of those in whose care the water system lies. There is some question, regarding the reason for closing the, valves and by whom done. One thing is sure, and that is if apprehended the per petrators of the mischietf, if so it can be called, are in line for a vigorous prosecution and to receive a lesson which should have a 1-aeting effect. $1.00, while the supper may be had i news was copied from The' Dalles for the small sum of 35 cents.
