state of status quo so far as doing
anything looking to a supply of wa
ter for this year's crops. A big
huUaballoo was emitted by repre
sentatives of the company when an
(abortive attempt war, made to con
struct a dam at the mouth of Clear
Lake last fall.
Alter the dam was completed in
steps the Forest Service with a re
quest that the company put up a good
and sufficient bond to cover lots of
timber naturally to be covered by
the rising water of the lake. A small
bond was put up, but not sufficient
to meet Forst Service demands.
Later the dam was ordered opened,
which being done allowed the water
to escape down Clear creek and on
to White river. Thus ends chapter
umpty-ump of the water question of
Chapter next will be written and
edited by the water contract holders
of those plains. It is certain they
must have water, and having paid j
for same arc entitled to it. It now
seems that if they get any of H2o
they will have to assert a little au
thority, spit ot their hands, bend
their backs and proceed to clean out
the weed-grown ditches, appoint a
water master and proceed on their
own to Becure what little water may
be saved before hot weather dries
up the mountain ttreams. It seems
a cinch that the claimed-to-be-owners
intend to do nothing to alleviate the
condition of the contract holders.
The company seems to be too busy
attempting to interest capital in the
proposition, but all protective in
vestors who have investigated the
situation seem reluctant in investing
money in something almost intangi
ble. If the company was sufficiently
financed the wages of some of the
young men who worked on the dam
would be paid and not let wait for
months for their dues.
The company is capitalized for
$5,00 and is confronted with a pro
gram which, to carry out would mean
at least $25,000, and one wonders
how in h eck anything will ever be
accomplished by such a company
with such an inadequate supply of
the stuff that makes the mare go.
