IMPORTANT POINT INVOLVKI)
This Action ly the Company Settles
the QiieMlon of lrcicrvlnic Wutcr
I'owcr nt Tills Place.
The Deschutes Irrigation &
Power Company will hold to its
.former contract nnd secure water
for the irrigation of 56,000 acres
from a canal with hcadgates below
Bend. This action by the company
and the land Ixmrd is commendable
It is right in line with the policy of
the settlers to have as much laud
put under irrigation as possible
without destorying those interests,
present and future, dependent on
water power at this place. Hend
!cop!c have claimed that there was
110 need to divert water above the
town to irrigate a .segregation that
could k reached by a canal with
head gates Ik-Iow Hend.
J. O. lohustou, vice-president
and general manager of the com
pany, announced the above decision
111 conference with the state laud
board at Salem last week. It
means that an abundance of water
will lie retained in the river for all
legitimate development purposes at
Wend, and that the town will not
be deprived of this most vital as
set to its future growth.
A dispatch to the Orrgonian
from Salem tcl's the svry in full.
Sai.km, Or., Jan. 15. The Des
chutes Irrigation & I'owcr Com
jxiny have practically conceded its
mummy 10 i;ei n huiiiciciu water
supply for all of its irrigation pro
jects in the Deschutes country and
will prolnibly abandon one of them.
This situation was developed at a
meeting of the State Land Board a
few days ago, when Manager J. 0
Johnston was lxifore the board to
arrange for a contract for the recla
mation of two remaining proiects.
The Deschutes Irrigation &
Power Company is the successor of
the Pilot Hultc Development Com
txuiy and has already constructed
canals which reach in the main the
tract included in that segregation.
Some extensions and laterals arc
yet to be constructed. The com
pany is also the successor of the
Oregon Irrigation Company, which
controls a segregation of 56,000
acres under the Carey act, and the
company has a segregation of near
ly 80,000 acres in its own name.
These two projects have been ap
proved by the Secretary of the
Interior and are now awaiting con
tracts between the State Land
Hoard and the company for the
reclamation of the laud.
At its conference with Mr. John
ston the board decided not to enter
into a contract until State Hngiueer
J. II. Lewis has examined the laud
and certified the number of acres
that can be irrigated with water
available, Mr. Johnston indicates
his intention to undertake the Ore
gon Irrigation project, for which
he will secure water through a
canal with headgatcs below the
town of Hend, on the Deschutes,
thus avoiding the conflict with
waterrights at that place. Mr.
Lewis will leave soon for the Des
chutes country and ascertain how
much laud the company can irri
gate from its proposed system.
A later report in the livening
Telegram quotes Mr. Johnston as
denying that the company would
abandon any of its projects. He
would not admit the correctness of
the statement that the company
would go below Hend for the diver
sion point of another canal.
A. M. Drake, on being inter
viewed, said he had uo information
other than that in the papers but he
did not believe the company would
follow Mr. Johnston's "rule or
ruin" policy which would unfavor
ably afreet other interests of magni
tude in this section, since any such
action would only bring on expen
sive and long-winded litigation
which could only re-act to the com
patty's disadvantage and keep fur
ther settlement from the lands pcml
iug a final decision, which might
tuku years to reach.
Two Uend Men Injured.
As Henwy Tweet was assisting ill
lifting a water tniik at the V. U. J)
Co. null Monday uiornini;. he
wlvellVstveM Btrulu iu the rfij'h
side that has laid him trfr at home
for the past few days. After the
tank was put in place Tweet felt n
sharp pain in his right side, which
at once caused him difficulty in
breathing. The pain was- So acute
that it was necessary to take him
home. The latest reports announce
that he is recovering nicely from a
very severe strain to the muscles of
the right side.
The same morning as Henry Lin
stcr was rolling a heavy log down
the roll-way at the Liustcr mill, he
slipped and was unable to get away
from the descending log. Mr. Liu
stcr, as the log caught his foot, low
ered his leg onto the roll-way and
the log rolled onto him. Aside
from the pain caused by the great
weight on his leg, no injury was
sustained and he is now attending
to business as usual.
SILVER LAKE A1AIL DELAYED.
Recent Storms Block the Roads
The mail carriers to and from
Silver Lake arc having a serious
time the past three days. Recent
snow storms have put the roads in
bad condition. South of Lava JJutte
the snow is drifted three and four
feet deep. Silver Lake mail that
should have arrived nt Bend
Wednesday morning came in
Thursday morning about 1:30
o'clock, while the Thursday morn
ing mail did not arrive until late
to day Herbert Cook brought the
Silver Lake mail iu Thursday
morning at 1:30 o'clock. About
1 1 130 o'clock Wednesday morning
he met Joe Taggart, who had left
Bend with south mail at 10 o'clock
Tuesday night, only a mile and a
half south of Vandevert's ranch.
Taggart was practically stuck iu
the snow. Cook had come down
with pack horses, so he traded his
horses for Taggart's wagon and
came on to Bend. On account of
the general mix-up in time schedule
the regular driver to go south was
in no shape to make the return trip
Thursday morning. Barney Lewis
therefore was pressed into service
and started south with the mail.
This isa most unusual occurrence
on this route. Old-timers report that
seldom has the road been so badly
blocked for so long a time.
Bid TIME AT LAIDLAW.
Irrigation Institute and Basket Din
ner next Saturday.
AtLaidlaw, on Saturday, Jan
ucry, 20th, morning and afternoon
sessions, 10 a. m. and 2 p. m. re
It is hoped that this gathering
may prove not to be iu any sense a
local affair, or a lone effort, but
rather a permanent institution,
whose influence eventually will em
brace the entire portion of Crook
county which is subject to irriga
tion, and continue its sessions from
year to year at such timrs and
places as may seem advisable.
The committee wish to extend to
Bulletin readers a cordial invitation
to favor the meeting with their pres
ence, to join in the discussions
which are expected to be intensely
practical, to enjoy the musical and
literary portions of the program
which have been promised in re-
spouse to special invitations, and
also to become acquainted with
more of your neighbors us you di
vide with them the good thiugs of
"basket and store.
The program to be given will be

THE WEEK'S RUMORS
Much Railroad Talk but
WILL BUILD IN THE SPRING
Reported that Corvollls Eastern Wllf
Begin Construction across State
In a Few Alontlio.
ThcCorvallis & Eastern arc mak
ing preparations to extend its rail
road through Central Oregon. Real
izing that the time is at hand when
they mtist cither extend their line
or abandon it to their competitors,
they have decided to begin con
struction work as .won as the snow
iu the mountains is melted suffic
iently to allow it. This is the news
heralded by the Laidlaw Chronicle
in its last issue.
The past week has been rather
barren of definite railroad news, but
the papers of the state arc full of
rumors. These may be of interest
to our readers for the grain of truth
that they may contain. The Bul
letin gives them for what they arc
The cause for the expected exten
sion of fhe Corvallis & Eastern is
the well-known one of the necessity
of irrotccting its territory, and the
great advantages possessed by this
road in an east and west line across
The rtimor nbd reaches The Bul
letin that tile Southern Pacific ha:,
asked a saw rtilll in western Crook
county to submit bids for a quan
tity of pine tics to be" delivered at
Forest, Redmond and Beild. If
there is truth in this statement it
certainly looks as though db'luiH
construction in the near future veaf
The report that has reached Vale
regarding the Chicago & North
western Is to the effect that one
brancli of the Hue will cross
the Snake river 'nt Nyasa and"
run west from there td Vale arid
then head for Ceiilbi Uregdrl.
Which pass it trill take jSUHkubwi!.
It can follow Up BUlly Creek toward
Bculah, and thchbb to illlHis, anti
on througH tb lk-iid rfHd across the
mountains td tile Willamette valley.
E. M JRlcfc, a capitalist fond
New V8rk, passed through Vale
this week lor the interior. He
.stated be intended to secure large
holdings of timber west of lidrns:
and a!4o in the LakevievV cdlhUrt .
This fact coupled, wilh the fact that
Northwestern engineers were iti
Nyssa last week looking over the
route from Boise, where they have
established n partial survey from
Casper, Wyo., leads the people df
the interior to the belief thai this
line will be extended oh1 tdward
the coast. .. .. ,
