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 Information in regard to desert laud proofs in the following circular scut out from Washington: "That portion of .section 18 of the regulations governing entries and proofs tinder the desert-land laws, approved Nov. 30, 1908, (37 I.. V., 313), which relates to expenditures for .stock or interest in irrigating companies, Is hereby amended to rend as follows: "Expenditures for stock or In terest in an irrigating company through which water is to be se cured for irrigating the land and which owns the right to the use of sufficient water to satisfy all valid claims therefor acquired by owner ship of its stock or otherwise, will be accepted as satisfactory expen ditures when claimant shall file and make n part of the annual proof "(a) A receipt or other writing signed by the proper officer or tgent ol the company showing a payment of cash for stock or interest in the company, and the affidavit of the claimant showing that the payment was made in cash, and when made. "(b) An affidavit of the claimant showing the nature of the contract or agreement ho, has with the com pany entitling him to the use of water, nnd the quantity of water to which he is entitled under such con tract or agreement, or proper show ing that the ownership of the stock or interest entitles him to the use of venter and the quantity of water to which he entitled by virtue of such ownership.

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 land. TWO BANKS FOR RtlDAlOND. The Redmond Dank of Commerce Will Soon Open for Business. Redmond is to have a second bank.

AN EXCITING AND CLOSE ELECTION More Interest Displayed Than For Many Years. MERRILL WINS FOR AUYOR Defeata S. C. CuldweH by Narrow Margin of One Vote II. J. Over turf, J. If. Onell and W. U. Sel ler arc elected Aldermen. 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: l'or Mayor C W Merrill J6 S. C Caldwell 35 Henry WhittetL 7 l'or Aldermen H.J. Overturf 45" J. II. Ouell 43 W. n.

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 ing used on the road, with contin uous rail couplings. The McCoy track laying machine, which hand ! ties aud rails without any of the old time hard labor, is being used successfull) on the line. Derrick cars are also part of the construc tion equipment." TESTIMONY TAKEN. 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.
