THE BEND BULLETIN

(InTtrUMy In drancc.)
WKDNKSDAY, JAN. ta, 1910.
The spirit shown by the Bend
Board of Trade in urging tbe Rec
lamation Service to take up the
Crooked Rner Project, is most
commendable. That spirit should
be found prevalent throughout all
of Central Oregon, and each sec
tion should base its labors on the
broad-principle that what helps to
develop one community will like
wise redound to the advantage of
all. Let us all pull together for
the upbuilding of a great and pros
perous "Inland Umpire" in Oregon.

The country knows very well
what will be the verdict of tbe con
gresswaal committee appointed to
investigate the Department of the
Interior and the Forestry Bureau
There is but little respect for con
gretsioual investigating committees.
Their findings have too often been
tinged with whitewash. Secretary
Ballinger is being bitterly attacked
and his character questioned. It
is to be regretted that there is not
Mat better means for shifting this
whole dirty matter to the very bot
tom. If the Secretary is innocent
his detractors should be punished;
if he is guilty, he merits the fullest
punishment and severest condemna
tion. The character of a man who
has an excellent record behind him,
is on trial. The entire nation, and
particularly the West, will hope
that tbe Secretary can establish his
integrity. The verdict of the con
gresftioual committee, however, will
have but little weight. Would that
there were other means more certain
of dispensing justice.

words, to the grafters, the Rocke
fellers, Morgan, Guggcnhcitus,
Weverhaeusers, etc. Secretary
Ballinger may be as honest and n
tjreat n friend of conservation as the
ex-chief forester, but there is n
very strong suspicion in the minds
of many regarding this point, and
Ballinger comes far from enjoying
the entire trust of the nation. The
right against Piuchot undoubtedly
has been instigated largely by the
corporations and trusts, by those
who wish to gobble up the nation s
resources for their own private
pocketbook. The trusts and pie
datory interests scored a mighty
victory against the people when the
present tariff measure was enacted
into law. They have won another
in the removal of Pinchot.
AN EASY VICTORY.

OLD LAWS UNWISE.
Beyousd question, the all-absorbing
and all-important issue before
tbe republican voters of Oregon
during the next few months will be
embodied ia the fight for aad
against the holding of "assemblies"
or ceaveatkms by tbe republican
party, at which candidates for the
various offices will be "suggested."
The chief objection to this proced
ure is that it opens the way for the
old-time political bossism and ring
politics. The new-named assembly
is nothing more nor less than the
old-time political convention in its
crudest form. And no good thing
can come out of a convention. The
granges of the state are beginning
a bitter fight against the assembly
idea, and they, in common with the
labor organizations, propose to de
featif possible every candidate
proposed by the assembly.' These
powerful organizations are being
assisted by some of tbe ablest men
ot the state, among them Judge
Henry I!. McGinn, who says open
ly that for Oregon to return to the
old-time convention is to return to
corruption, graft aad boodle. The
rank and file of the people are satis
fied with direct primary nomina
tions and have no time for the
assembly. Strange it is how so
many of the old-time politicians are
so Very anxious to "save" the re
publican party by means of a convention.
A host of people over the United
States will read with regret of the
removal of Chief Forester Pinchot
by President Taft. There is no
doubt but that Piuchot may have
"iHvJted the lightning," and in
view of the forester's .insubordina
tion there was nothing for the pres
ident to do but remove bint. Nev
ertheless, Pinchot is admitted 'to be
scrupulously honest and a true
friend of the conservation of tbe
nation's resources opposed body
and seul to giving them away to
tbe predatory interests, in other!
Riparian Water Rights Stand la Way
el Reclaiming Much Land.
Under Oregon's old riparian water
laws, and the influence of enormous
grants made wagon road and other com
panics, development of the great interior
of tbe state i sure to be retarded, ac
cording to the ciTect ot a decision ren
dered by Judge Wotvcrton in the federal
court. In this case the court was im
pelled to hold that riparian rights ac
quired prior to enactment of tbe Desert
Land Law of 1877, gave to the large land
owner, as welt as to the small farmer,
the privilege of insisting on all the vague
benefits coming from having flood waters
of spring overflow their holdings.
The decision came in the case of the
Eastern Oregon Land Company, which
is one of the wagon road grantees, vs.
the Willow River Land & Irrigstion
Company. It was proved in the bearing
that tbe ICastern Oregon Company bad a
considerable acreage which was annually
overflowed in tbe spring, and that this
soaring gave the land life to yield crops
of wild grasses and other forage. The
Willow Kitcr company had acquired a
mining compauv'a water rights on the
stream, auil was preparing to use this
water for Irrigating arid land. The
plans of the last-named company were
to construct a dam asbort distance above
tbe meadows of the Kastcrn Oregon
Company, store the water during flood
season and then distribute it through
ditches to farms. That tbe Willow
Kiver Companr had a riuht to the nor
mat flqw of Uie stream was conceded.
Tbe Uastern Oregon Company insisted
tnat its rights went to tbe flood flow
ouly, but in this its title could not be
defeated by any later reclamation proj
ects. Tbe court sustains tbe Eastern
Oregon Company, which will have tbr
effect of preventing tbe storing of flood
waters on that stream for any purpose.
To what extent such constructions of
the law may be invoiced to check stor
age of flood waters could not be stated
by tbe conservation men who bsve dis
cussed tbe matter. Since the act of
1877 was passed, it is conceded that the
old ripariau rights have been qualified,
and since the enactment of the new
water law of 1907 the utmost power is
given tbe state to use water where it la
needed to carry on reclamation work, so
far as it does not result in confiscation
of private property, title to which has
already pased. Telegram.

At. Rice Much the Rotter Man In
The wrestling match scheduled
for last Friday evening opened with
a preliminary bout between Arthur
King and Frank Page, a recent
comer to Bend. Young Page had
the IkM of it nil the way through,
and while he didn't show much
science jet he knew altogether too
many of the tticks of tbe trade for
King. Page secured the first fall
in six miutttcs and the second in
When the two principals of the
evening appeared on the mat there
was considerable interest evinced
by the mett looking on. J. M.
Rice, champion of southern Idaho,
was there to defend his reputation
as a wrestler, white Ben McMulIen
of Tbe Dalles showed up iu pretty
good form and gave promise of
furnishing the onlookers with an
iuteresting match. But the result
was a disappointment. McMulIen
was clearly outclassed from tbe
minute Rice got his hands on him.
McMulIen's defensive tactics availed
him nothing, and Rice apparently
did with him about as hcwishcd.
McMulIen never took the offensive.
In the first round, Rice soon had
his opponent down on the mat and
thcu slapped on a full Nelson and
soon bad McMulIen's shoulders to
the mat. Time 4 minutes.
The second fall was a repetition
of the first. McMulIen didn't seem
to be able to hinder Rice, who soon
scored another fall, again with a
full Nelson, and in .( tninutei.
The time in which the falls were
secured shows plainly that the
match didn't amount to much.
kicc gave evidence of being a
pretty good roan on the mat. He
apparently had great confidence in
the outcome, and went about the
work before him as though he
thoroughly understood the busi
ness. The general verdict was
that Rice had been there before,
and that someone ought to be
matched against him who would
give him a harder tussle.
