The Deschutes Irrigation it
Power Company has just ordered
two machines that are expected
greatly to increase the effectiveness
of its working plant. One is a
grader, wagon lo.tder and ditching
machine that will handle, with 18
'lorse for motive Kiwr, t. 000
cubic yards of earth in to hours.
l'"ive patent dump wagons areorder
imI, to tend the ditching machine.
That machine oerateit Mimcwhat
like a grain header, the earth being
elevated at one side and dcmitcd
111 the attending dump wagon. If,
upon trial, it docs what is promised,
one or two others will be purchased
for the canal work here.
The other machine is a Red field
hand tMiwer rock drill. With it
two tucii are expected to do ait
much work as is now accomplished
by six. Ilotli of these machine
.ire exacted to arrive within the
oming two weeks.
Mr. Johnston ways his plans con
template the reclamation of the en
tire ' Drake" gsgrcgatioii within
tlic coming ycoTrrinsiiumns con
itructiou of canals, laterals and sub
laterals to water all the cultivable
land. Then the work will le con

ing "We are not entirely satisfied
vith what we have been able to ac
complish thus far," said Mr. John
ilou, "but we have labored under
many disadvantages and perhaps
have done as well as should have
been expected. Now the entire en
terprise is well in hand, we are
gaining confidence with uxcrieucc,
and are able to plan with assurance
that our plans can be carried into
effect. Wc want to get the laud
reclaimed at the enrliust praticable
moment and will not spare expense
or energy in doing no."
