Rev. Leonard W. Riley, of Mc

was assisted by Rev. O. W. Triplett.
The church was not completed but
temporary scats were put in for the

Two pot table steam Ixjiler ar
rived for the I). I. & P. Co. the
latter part of last week. One is of
o and the other of 0 horse power.
They were stiecially made for the
work of this company in the Ueud
section and shipped out from Col
umbus, Ohio, a carload of the ma
chinery being brought.
These boilers are to be used to
furnish jxtwer for operating rock
drill. The, big boiler will drive
four drills and the .small boiler one.
Together they will supply ower for
boring 400 feet a day in Lava
rock. An ordinary rock crew of
three tneii is able to bore hut 18
or so feet a day.
Ileforc it was planned to use
these machines it was figured that
a force of 188 rocknien would be re
quired to do ;he work necessary on
canal construction. The ini Risi
bility of getting such a force on this
enterprise led General Manager
Johnston to devise thU method of
drilling owdir holes in the rock.
The new machine are expected to
lc in full operation in a few days,
there being some delay in getting
all the appliance in from the rail
road. With thits.ucw device the drills
arc worked by steam direct from
the boiler, the steam serving the

little blasting is to be done the drill
holes will still be done by hand, but
the big ledges will be botcd by
the steam drills.
Camp No. 3 was this week moved
from a oint near Long Ilutte to a
position on the Pilot Ilutte canal
about a mile and a half below Read.
The enlargement of that canal will
be completed and water turned in
again early the coming week.
Tlicl'lndley Dltclfand Ranch.
Among the slumbering develop

Mrs. Ptudley filed water notice and

miles long ami have been conduct
ing water through it for actual irri
gation of their vast meadows during
tlie past five yuars. Thus their
claim to water rights rests upon
actual use and is not likely to give
way before the mere posting of
theoretical notices. Moreover, Mr
1'iiuUey claims the right to sell
water service to those who may set
tle 011 tributary lauds and desire it.
He says 125,000 arable acres are
under his ditch, that the cost of re
claiming that laud is very low and
the water service consequently
much cheaper than in other parts
of the Deschutes valley. The soil
there is sandy, with no rocks to
