Laidlavv, Or., June 31 The
net result of the watertight hear
Inge for the first week is dismissal
of about 35 contests against the Co
lumbia Southern Irrigating Co.,
the trial of one case on an amended
complaint and partial hearing o(
another, wulcli Is still In progrrss.
When Water Superintendent
Saxton called the docket Ut
Wednesday there whs slicnuotn ob
jection on the part of the Columbia
southern Irrigating (Jo. to going
to tiial. William T. Muir of Port
land, counsel for the company, pre
scuted through another Portland
attorney,. G. F. Martin, an afli
duvit and motion for continuance.
This move was resisted by most of
the settlers. The superintendent
ruled that there could be no con
tinuance except on agreement of
the turtles. Since the parties
could not agree, the superintendent
set Monday for taking testimony,
designating the case of C. W. Al
len against various parties to be
beard first and the Witner case to
Monday morning the contest of
C. W. Allen vs. C. S. I. Co., G.
G. Gerking, G. E. and J. C.
George, D. M. Smith and C. J.
Mock was called. An amended
complaint was filed adding 35 set
tlers as plalntlUs witu Mr. Allen
and not including the company and
the Georges as defendants. Upon
the issue thus made up testimony,
was taken. C. P. Becker and F.
R. Harbour were the only oral wit
uesses lor the plaintiffs. They
testified that no water was used
upon the lands in question by de
fendants prior to 1904. S. J. Ne,w
some of Prineville, the only oral
witness for the detense, testified as
one of the incorprators of the old
Three Sisters Irrigation Co. that
water was appropriated for these
lands before there were any proceed
ings under the Cary Act in Oregon.
Thus the plaintiff sought to show
that defendants, who are outside
the Columbia Southern segregation,
have no rights antedating 1904,
(prior to which date plaintiffs' own
rights are alleged to have ac
crued), and defendents try to
establish their right through au
old diversion before operations
were inaugurated under the Cary
Act. The rest of the evidence
V. A. Forbes of Hend and W. S.
Ashton of Potttand represented the
plaintiffs and Myers & Young ap
peatcd for defendants. A motion
for nonsuit was made when plain
tiff had closed, but it was merely
entered in the record.
Today the cases of O. W. Wlmer
against the C, S. I. Co. and the
company against the Wlratrs, hav
ing been consolidated lor one Hear
ing, are in progress and promise
to occupy two or three days.
