arc interested in the project are
aware that all the water of the Dei

other irrigation companies. How.
ever, they have made application to
the Mate Hoard of Control to grant
them a itcrmlt to divert and use

tributaries of the Deschutes. They
ask for this permit on the grounds

be using the water, can gel their
land under cultivation and bring

there is a demand for alt the water,
they agree to go to a higher point
on I'all river and build a storage
reservoir to impound, from the
winter flow, nil the water needed
for their lands. In this manner,
they would not interfere with the

LOCAL CASES TRIED
IN DISTRICT COURT
Tower and Baldwin, Held on Charge
of Stock Ruslllne, Are Discharged.
Estebcnet Make Motion for
Kehearlnjj In foreclosure.
District court is In session at
I'rincville this week. Action on
local cases of interest is as follows,
as reported to The Ilullctln by
phone last evening.
In the case of the Central Oregon
Hanking & Trust Co. vs. A. IL
Kstcbcnct ct al., in the foreclosure
and sale of the Kstcbcnct building
occubicd by the billiard hall, the
defendant made a motion for a new
trial. Judge Hrudshaw had the
matter uuder ndvlscmeut.
The Chas. Findley caw was be
ing heard, but no final action had
been taken. Findley had been
bound over to the grand jurv, due
to trouble with the Slys at Rostand.
Tower and Baldwin, bound over
on a charge of stealing hordes in
the old river bed section, were dis
charged. It is understood this
trouble was settled out of court. A
party, representing Tower's father,
appeared at I'rincville and attempt
cd to settle the trouble, promising
that young Tower would return to
his father in Washington if the
officers would dismiss the case.
The application of A. M. Drake
for a receiver for the C. O. D. Co.,
argued at The Dalies, wa.o denied.
In the cases of A. M. Drake vs.
the D. I. & F. Co., the defendant
entered a demurrer to the complaiut,
which will be argued later.
The I). I. & P. Co. won out in
its suit to enjoin the county from
collecting taxes on the company's
system of cunali, laterals, etc. De
cree has been entered enjoining the
county from collecting same.
A flood Laugh on the lixperts.

bored small holes in some of the
pieces and Gllcd in fine gold, and
then closed the holes up again.
With these imitation stones he savs
that "I fooled the best mining ex
perts in the country." He enclosed
a column and a half clipping from
a Bishop, Calif., paper which tells
of the joke and says, "The enclosed
clipping only half way tells the fun

usual test of pan and water, de

went, and the result $812.34, and

that, for a brief hour or two, Kdgcr

A Dangerous Practice.
Some person or persons did a
most unwise thing Monday even
ing by leaving their hydrants open
and allowing the water to run all
night, whereby the tank was run
practically dry. The tank was full
Monday evening at about 5:30. If
a fire had broken out early Tues
day morning, the town would have
been without protection and a most
disastrous fire might have resulted.
The stealing of water in this man
ner should be condemned in most
vigorous terms, as it endangers the
