We arc reliably informed that the

the editorial management of the

of the Review office, will take
charge of the 'mechanical depart

The survey of the new towusite,
"Lytic," hiw been completed, and
lots will shortly be placed on the
market. There should be no trouble
disiwsing of them, as the towusite
is unusually sightly and well chos
en, being in close proximity to the
new mill and directly on the line
and near the terminus of the Col
umbia Southern Railway.
"Dad" West's new City Meat
Market has been graced with a very
artistic sign, painted by Harney
Lewis Instead of writing the pro
prietor's name on the sign, the ar
tist drew an unusually lifelike pic
ture of Mr. West iu the center, to
enable illiterate purchasers of beef
steaks to distinguish the proprietor
without asking foolish questions.
The force of men engaged in
building Reed &' Steidl's sawmill
have been busy preparing timbers
for the framework. The frame will
be completed iu a short time, and it
will not be very long until the mill
will be turning out finished lumber

consist of a powerful undershot
wheel for the present. Later an
improved turbine will be added.

will have the machinery iiow iu the

back number, but in Rend the 4 or
5 to 1 question came to n very live
ly and exciting Issue one day last
week. One man came down to the
schoolliouse mid attempted to dis

while it lasted, and the friends of
the man who started the row had
to pick their hero up with a rake
and a piece of blotting tmper.

Secretary Hitchcock's Decision.
DciMirtmetit of the Interior,
Washington, D. C, March 3, 1903
CommiMikmer of the General
Laud Office Sir: With your office
letter of 3d ultimo were transmitted
articles of incorporation nud due
proofs of organization of the Pilot
Ihttte Development Company, of
the State of Oregon; also maps of
location of the Pilot Rutte canal,
and laterals A and R thereto; the
Central Oregon canal, first and iec-
ond sections, and the Powell Rutte
lateral of the Central Oregon, all of
which were filed by the Pilot Rutte
Development Compnuy as an appli
cation for right of way under sec
tions 18 to 21 of the act of March 3,
1891 (26 stat., 1095), ""d in said
letter you recommended that the
articles of incorporation be accepted
for filing under said act and that
the maps of location be approved.
In this connection you forwarded
an appeal by C. C. Hutchinson,
president of the Oregon Irrigation
Company, from your decision of
January 17, 1902, dismissing his
protest filed against the Pilot llutte
Development Company, before re
ferred to. This apjusal was filed
out of time, and it is for Unit reason
submitted -v with the recommenda
tion that it be dismissed. Aside
fiom the fact that this appeal was
not filed iu time, a careful exami
nation of the protest discloses no
reason for reversing the action of
your office taken thereon. The
said protest will therefore stand dis
missed, The papers and maps, as sub
mitted, have been carefully exam-
iitcd aiid the recommendations iu
regard thereto made by your office
are approved. The articles of in
corporation of tine Pilot Rutfc De
velopment Company arc therefore
herewith returned for filing under
the act of 1891, and the mam of
location above described arc here
with returned with the departmen
tal approval noted thereon.
IJ. A. Hitchcock,
The a'bovc official comnjuuicatioii
from Secretary Hitchcock to the
'commisaipner o the general land
office removes the final obstacle in
the way of the Pilot Rutte Develop
ment Co.'s project for reclaiming
the denert, and effectually prevents
further optositiou to the construc
tion of their large canals. Work
will commence ill the near future,
as soon ns men and material am be
Rcndy to Begin Operations.
The Columbia Southern Irriga
tion Co., which has charge of the
large reclamation contract on the
west side of the Deschutes, iu the
Tumello country, will have a large
force of men at work on their ditch
es as soon as the snow goes off.
The work will be under the direct
suj)crvisioii of Col. Smith, the gen
ial proprietor of the Rimrock
Springs ranch. The colonel has
had a great ileal of cxtwriencc in
this line, and we feel that the choice
of the Columbia Southern Irriga
tion Co. was a wise one. Rcfore
many weeks the dirt will begin to
fly, and by this time next year wc
will see the desert dotted with
Wc understand that all of the
28,000 acres which this company
will reclaim have been spoken for,
and it will mean business for the
eople of Ueud, as this will be their
postoffice and nearest trading point.
We will then have hay and the set
tlers will have dollars.
Portage Road nt Cctlto.
In a short time work will have
commenced on the portage road
around the dalles of the Columbia.
The legislature appropriated
$165,000 for this work, and altho'
this sum seems somewhat inade
quate, it will be a great step to
wards an open river. And it will
be the greatest and most important
event iu the history of Uastcrn Or
egon since the lime that Meriwether
Lewis and William Clark came iu
sight of Mount Hood's snowy man
tle and followed it down the Col
umbia until they were able to greet
the rising sun behind it instead Of

went down iu the west, bathing the
