AMOUNT OF WATER
SHOULD BE SHOWN
Mooted Point Settled by Depart
incut of the Interior.
INTHREST DESnRT HNTRYA1EN
Certlflcatesof Stock of Irrigation Com
pany, when Offered In Plnnl Proof,
Should Show Amount of Water
Untryman Is Hntltled To.
Throughout Crook county there
arc several private irrigation corn
panics which arc diverting water
from various streams for irrigation
purjuiscs. In most cases, the men
who have built these private ditches
own land which is reclaimed or
which is to lc reclaimed by these
systems. Also the men,whosc land
is to be reclaimed generally own the
stock of the companies. When
this stock is owned by a desert-laud
eutrymau, the question has often
arisen as to what the ccrtificatco of
stock should show regarding the
owners right to the use of water
from the irrigation company. Some
have maintained that the stock it
self should show on its face the
amount of water to which the own
er is entitled.
In order to settle the mooted
ixiiiit, II. S. Commissioner Kills ol
Ilcnd recently wrote to the Depart
ment of the Interior asking for in
formation on this question. The
Department replied: "It is neces
sary for claimants to furnish with
their proofs record evidence show
ing their right to the use of enough
water with which to properly irri
gate all of the Irrigable laud In
their entries nnd the amount of
water to which they are entitled to
the use. It would therefore appear
that it would be n good idea to have
the certificates of stock show how
much water the owners of them are
thereby entitled to the nse of."
The Department gives further

INJURED IN A RUNAWAY.
Woman Uaaly Hurt and One llors
Killed on the Shanlko Stage Line.
Mrs. A. D. Hatton, a passenger
on the Shaniko-Princville stage,
was seriously injured in a runaway
accident last Wednesday about
noon coming down Grizzly moun
tain. Mrs. Hatton was riding in
the front scat with the drivcr.Chas.
Johnson, when her hat blew oil".
The driver got down to get the hat
and II. S. McCormick of Portland,
a passenger riding inside, also got
out, and while the driver was re
covering the lady's headgear, en
deavored to stimulate his circula
tion by clapping his hands togeth
er. This started the team, and Mr.
McCormick, seized one of the
wheelers by the bridle and tried to
stop it. Failing to do so he let go
and endeavored to get on the seat
to get the lines, but the ribbons
were down by that time and the
team started on a wild run down
the mountain. The driver called
to Mrs. Hatton to jump out, which
she did. She struck on a rock and
was consequently seriously injured
in the back.
The Prinevillc Journal siys the
team ran down the mountain, keep
ing the road. After running be
tween a quarter and half a mile
one of the wheelers fell and the
stage ran over the horse, upsetting.
The horse had to be killed. The
stage was not injured much.
Frank Smith, the county roarl
man was working along the road
and the runaway team passed him.
He soon went to kelp the party
with the injured womun.
Johnson, the driver,' telephoned
to Prinevillc from the Gibson ranch
and Stage Agent Geo. Reams nnd
C. I.. Shuttuck went to the scene
in one of the company's nutos,
bringing the woman to town with
ull speed, where Dr. Belknap was
called to attend her. one rested
quite well last night and the pros
pects are that she will soon recover.
Mrs. Ilutton was on her way to
Bend where she expected to file on

Defeata S. C. CuldweH by Narrow
Margin of One Vote II. J. Over

The closest and withall most ex
citing election ever witnessed in
Bend was the one of yesterday, in
which city officers were elected for
another two years. Dr. C. W.
Merrill wen as mayor with only
one vote to spare, S. C. Caldwell
running a close second, 36 to 35.
W. B. Sellers and H. E. Allen each
secured 43 votes for alderman and
when straws were drawn as the
statute provides in case of a tic
Sellers won. The other victorious
aldermen arc H. J. Overturf and
J. II. Oneil.
The question whether the sale of
near beer should be prohibited in
Bend injected no small amount of
interest and some hard feeling into
this election. There is a strong
element in the town opposed to it,
while another element believes its
sale should not be prohibited.
These two forces did considerable
electioneering, with the result that
the vote on the near beer question
showed 38 in favor of prohibiting
its sale and 46 against said prohi
bition. The story of the election is told
in the following returns:

IIARRIMAN ROAD IS RUSHED.
An Army of Men In Deschutes Can
yon BuHdtar Uttr&4a.
Thirty-four miles of steel rails,
40,000 tics aud nn abundance of
brige material are piled in the Har
riman yards at Deschutes, accord
ing to C. K. Lewis, conductor of
the construction train which is at
work on the line to Central Oregon.
While in Portland recently Mr.
Lewis said to the Journal:
"A bridge 95 feet high is being
placed about five miles up the can
yon, the first to be built. By Jan
uary t steel will be laid across the
bridge and a loag stretch of grade
ready for the ties will be reached.
It will not be a long job then to lay
39 miles of track before another
deep canyon will be encountered.
Delays in construction will occur at
the bridges, for the task of con
structing such high trestles is slow
and exacting. But the work is be
ing rushed despite the inclement
weather. Not a day has been lost
on account of rain or snow.
"From information that filters
down the Deschutes, there are
about 4000 men on the grade.
Practically all the work is being
made by section work, and for
nearly too miles gangs of men are
at work every quarter mile.
"Seventy-five pound steel b be

In Adjudication of Water Rights from
Paulina Lake and Creek.
F. M. Saxton of Baker City,
superintendent of water division
No. 2. was in Bend last Friday to
take testimony in the matter of the
determination of water rights from
Paulina lake and creek. This was
the initial step in the adjudication
of these water rights and not much
of importance developed.
A matter of some interest, how
ever, was the application by D, L.
McKay of Portlaud, in behalf of
the Mueller Lumber Company, for
a water right of five cubic feet per
second of time at the head of
Paulina Prairie, said water being
desired for engine, domestic and
stock use. It is understood that
the Mueller company will put in n.
sawmill at that place when the rail
roads now building are completed.
A large number of Rosland peo
ple are interested iu this adjudica
tion, Those present at the hearing
were Ralph, Lee, Bert and Grover
Caldwell, Kd. Rourk and V. G.
Fordham, all ol Rosland; and also
