been cleared lor n distance ol seven
miles from the hendgute site In the
George Mayficld meadow, but the
work of canal excavation hat been
held up by the strike of the union
machinists in Portland. The big
steam excavator under construction
there, which was to have been tie
livcred on the ground and put in,
operation weeks ago, is not yet fin-'
ished. However, it is expected to
be ready soon. President Morsan
is now in Portland to rush the
For u considerable distance be
low the hcudgutc there was serious
conQict between the Hues surveyed
for the main canal nnd lor the
Oregon Trunk Railway. From
the naturc'of the ground, which re
quired both to pass around a cer
tain hillside at about the same eleva
tion, it was difficult for cither to get
out of the way of the other. It
was finally found that a small
canal could be curried around the
critical point and still leave room
for the -railroad. Therefore, only
enough water lor some 3000 acres
of high land that could not be env
ered by a lower channel will lc
conveyed in this high-line ditch
A short distaucc below the larger
canal will be dug for the main
body of the land. The railroad
company has avoided conflict with
the canal where it could by moving
its sqrvey to the eastward of the line
first located. The spirit ol mutual
accommodation thus observed has
resulted in harmonious adjustment
of a matter that might have made a
lot of business ior the courts and
postponed large development ac
tivity. President Morson says 10,000
acres will be under canals by next
April, so that crops can be raised
there next season if the owners de
sire. Land sales arc surprisingly
good. Though the State Board
will accept proof for, less than the
government legal subdivision (.0
acres) the tendency lately is to take
the land in as large tracts as the
law will permit.

A rock cut ubout 500 feet long at
the tipper end of the flume will be
finished in the course of the com

shall l calked with oakum,
which will require a few days more,
water will be turned down the new

The main canal will carry water
sufficient for 10,000 acres. Tin

large attendance of those suspected
of Hlkins partisanship So Trip

enforce the laws but he indicated u
doubt as to whether the present

More than 50 Intelligent, earnest
settlers upon lands under the Cen
tral Oregon canal of the D. I. & P.
Co. met at Llustcr's Hall last Sat
urday afternoon, In accordance
with public notice previously given,
and agreed to form an association
to look after their irrigation inter
ests. Temporary organization was
effected by election of Charles P.
Harris chairman and William K.
Scott secretaiy. These officers, to
gether with K. W. Richardson, P.
H. Dcncer und Philip C. Hurt,
were constituted a committee on
permanent organisation and to con
sult other organizations nud settlers
at Redmond and Powell Butte as
to their desire to join in a general
association re present I ng all settlers
on the D. I. &. P. segregation.
Iu the general discussion of the
object of the meeting and methods
tor attaining it various views were
expressed. K. W. Richardson
urged that all the settlers get to
gether lor organization that should
represent the entire segregation
rather than settlers under the Cen
tral Oregon Canal only.
Klmcr Wornstaff deemed It cs
scutial to organize. "For two sea
sons I rcsccdcd and then this year
los) toy crop through lack of water
that I paid for," satd he. "We arc
paying for water we are supposed
to have, and we arc not getting It.
We must organize. We should go
at it right and we've nil got to go
together. Then we can act with
some effect, cither by going to the
company or the Slate Doard. We
can't put up with prcseut condi
tions." Philip C. B'.trt thought the man
ner of construction should be
looked into, to see that it complied
with contract and would give the
service needed; "We can't stand
il to have ditches breaking all the
time ns they have this season," Lc
said. "We must see to it tliHt
ditches are constructed right. The
$1 an acre put up with the state as
a guaranty is not much of a de

opinion that it would be best lor
