IN PILOT BUTTfiSnaREQATfON
. i -
Tract of 38, 404 Acres Comes undtr
th Order-WWI Be of 'Much
Benefit to Settlers. '
Word was received in Bend Tues
day that "Lists for Patent Nos". 3
and 4" submitted by the Deschutes
Irrigation fit Power Company,
through the State of Oregon, had
been approved by the federal dffi-
dais and that patents to this land
would be Issued to the state at once.
The lists approved comprise ap
proximately 38,404 acres and the
land lies entirely In the Pilot Butte
i&ttlers have been anxiously
waiting for this news for soe
time. Many of them have paid for
their land in full and have fulfilled
the requirements of the law as to
settlement and cultivation. They
could not obtain their patents, how
ever, because the land bad hot been
approved for patent by the federal
officials. The ditch company has
bepn working to hurry this matter
along, but until now was unable to
secure action by tbe officials at
Washington. Now settlers who arc
living on the lund and have made
the necessary cultivation can offer
final proof and get their patents as
soon as they make payment in full
to the company.
This arrangement will be of ben
efit to many Frequently a settler
desires to borrow money with
which to improve his land. With
out n patent lie could not offer the
land as security and thus in many
cases was unable to make the loan.
The lack of patents has proven
quite a serious inconvenience.
It is also believed that sales Of
land will be more rapid hereafter
Men have been slow In contracting
fur ditch laud when title thereto
was stilt held by the United States
and patent had not been issued to
the state. Now, however, that un
pleasant feature will bother no
longer, and the purchaser will be
able to secure his patent as soon as
he makes the necessary residence
and cultivation nud satisfies the
lieu held by the ditch company for
reclaiming the laud.

DIED FROM THIRST
Body of an Unknown Man
Found In the Timber.
HAD BEEN DEAD MANY WEEKS
Two Indians Run acrow Cerate afeeui
J3 MKcs Southeast of Bead near
John AtcPtrarse Ranch.
Last Monday two Indians found
the badly decomposed body of an
unknown man in the timber near
Pine mountain, about 33 or 40
mites southeast of Bend. The In
diani at once reported the find to
John MePherson, whose ranch is
about eight miles from where the
body was found. The nest day,
accompanied by the Indians, Mc
Pbersoa visited tbe piece and satis
fied himself as to the truthfulness
0 the story, and then came to Bend
in order to 'phone to the sheriff,
arriving la town Wednesday. Sher
iff Iilkins instructed Constable A.
C. Lwas and John Atkinson, a
justice of the peace, to go and make
as much an examination of tbe
body as possible and to dispose of
tbe corpse. Tbe two men left yes
terday morning for the scene of the
tragedy and are expected home to
night MePherson reported that the
body is so badly decomposed that
identification would be impossible,
the features of the face being en
tirely destroyed. The body lay on
its back and there was no signs of
a struggle except that the heels had
been dug into the ground slightly,
probably during the man's death
agony. His coat,, vest and shirt
are missing, but the corpse was
still clothed in a pair of blue
black trousers and a peculiar make
of shoes. A few feet from the corpse
are evidence of a fire, which the
man probably started.
MePherson made no examination
of the corpse, and nothing is knowu
of the man's idchtity. The suppo
sition is that he became lost and
died from hunger and thirst. Con
stable Lucas may find some paper
of identification when he examines
