LOUIS W. HILL GETS
Oregon & Western Colonliatlon Co.
Property In Central and Kaatrrn
Oregon will bo Opened for
Settlement by Hallway Man
Louis W. 11111. whose resignation
u president of the Great Northern
Hallway U expected shortly, has se
cured control of 800,000 acres of
land In Central and Eastern Oregon
from the Oregon & Western Colo
nisation Co. and propose to throw. It
open for Immediate settlement
Associated with Mr. Hill la w. y.
Davidson, a St- Paul capitalist. In
this connection also. Dill Itantcy of
Duma haa announced that be will
.throw open to settlement within the
next few years 200,000 acres of his
Harney county holdings.
The land acquired by Mr. Hill and
associate was originally known as
the Willamette and Cascade Moun
tain land grant. This strip, which
extended eastward for 400 miles, was
to be the basis for a bond Issue for
the construction of the road. The
bonds were Issued, the road built
and the bonds ultimately found their
way Into the hands of French
These holders refused to throw
the country open to settlement, hold
ing the rost area In Its original un
improved condition and realizing
nothing on their investment. Finally
the Oregon & Washington Colonli
atlon Company was formed.
. The land extends from the western
slope of the Cascade Mountains cast
ward to Idaho and includes aon.o of
the best portions of Crook, Jla.noy
and Malheur counties. The principal
towns within the tract aro Prlneville
and Durns, although the deal does
not Include much actual town
Alternate Quarter Sections.
According to the terms of the
original grant the company that
agreed to build the military road was
dseded only every alternate quarter
action,-so the 'property acquired by
if. Hill '! bis associates is spotted
with farms of settlers and other largo
tracts held by smaller cororatlons
With the purchase or this Immense
acreage, the syndlcato will bo ablo to
control virtually the cntlro water
supply originating along the territory
Included In tho holdings. A large
part of tho Malheur River runs
through tho eastern part of tho land.
This river drains Malheur Lake, ono
of the largest bodies of water in
Kastorn Oregon. To tho northwest
of Hums tho Crooked Itiver takes Its
source and runs In a northweatorly
course and empties Into tho Des
chutes River about IB miles west of
Thcso two rivers form tho chief
dralnago system of central Eastern
Oregon. From the fsct that the
development of tho Iramenso hold
ings will depend to a great extent
upon Irrigation, the water supply Is
considered one of the groatest assets
of the acreage.

Supreme Court Upholds Initiative
WASHINGTON. D. 0. Only Con
gress, and not the Supreme Court of
the United States, may object to the
Inltlativo and referendum method of
legislation In the States, so the Su
preme Court haa decided.
That tribunal held that the ques
tion of whether a stste still main
tained a republican form of govern
ment guaranteed by the Federal Con
stitution after It adopted the Initi
ative and referendum is a problem
for Congress, and not a judicial one
for the courts.
The decision is based on the claim
of the Pacific States Telephone ft
Telegraph Company that a tax upon
It, Imposed by the initiative and ref
erendum method in Oregon, was un
constitutional. The initiative Md
referendum provisions In Missouri,
California, Arkansas, Colorado,
South Dakota, Utah, Montana, Maine
and Arizona bung in the balance.
An adverse decision would have af
fected the proposed legislation of
that character In many other states.
Chief Justice White announced the
decision of the court. Nono of the
Justices dissented. The court alro
gave a similar decision In reference
to an ordinance In Portland, Ore., for
the construction of a bridge.
The chief Justice said that "a
singular mlsapprphenston" bad exist
ed on both sides of the ease, but that
the "mists and confusion" were dis
pelled by the decision of Justice
Taney years ago, In which he dis
posed of the Dorr's rebellion ques
tlon. That was the cose of Luther
versus Oorden, he ald.aud decided

LAKKVIBW. Ore. Determined to
make tho coming meeting of tho Cen
tral Oregon Development Leagua one
of the big events in Oregon this year,
tho Lakovlew Commercial Club has
appointed W. Lair Thompson and Q.
V7. Illce as two members of a com
mittee of three to have general sup
ervision over tho meeting. As a
compliment to the women of the city
the club appolntod Mrs. E. K. nine-
hart, president of the Women's Civic
Improvement Club, as the third
member of tho committee.
' Kxtenslvo arrangements are being
made for tho celebration. One of the
plans under consideration Is a veni
son, trout and sage chicken dinner
for the entire assemblage. It is
planned to send a party of ten after
deer, a group of tho sarao size after
chickens and a larger party to obtain
trout. It Is believed by some that
this would show some of tho local
products in a most appreciable way.
Other unique features are to be on
tho program, and tho citizens of
Lakevlew will lie well prepared to
entertain all of its guests.
