TIIK IRRIGATION CONGRESS
Oregon' brat state Irrigation Con
gress, which mot In Portland Febru
ary 19-21, was attended by 158 dele
gates from ajl sections ot the state.
'It accomplished the chief objects for
which .it was called. The many In
terests which have been working
separately for or against tho govern
ment, the Carey act and the private
r.rojcct havo been brought together.
They are now nnlted in an organi
zation which will endeavor to securo
tbc pasaigo of legislation that will
offer overytpossible aid to the prompt
development ot all Irrigation pro
jects and at tho same time protect to
the fullest possible extent the rights
of the settler.
The one's! announcement by E.
G. Ilopson, project engineer, that the
Secretary of tho Interior would pro
ceed with tho completion of tho
Umatilla project and would take care
to protect all vested land and water
rights was Uio principal piece ot good
news divulged at tho congress. The
btatoment was preceded by a tele
gram .from President Taft saying
tbat he would endeavor to accord
Justice to Oregon and give to it its
just share of the reclamation funds.
The resolutions adopted by the
convention Included a petition to
congress ssklng for an appropriation
of 115,000,000 a year for a series of
five; years for the construction and
development of feasible irrigation
projects, and that Oregon bo given
bcr fult aharo In accordanco with the
provisions of the original reclama
tlon act, which apportioned funds
for such purposes In proportion to
the amount contributed by tho sale
of public lands.
The congress also favored the en
actment of legislation that will, as
far as possible, give the control of
the various Irrigation projects luto
the hands of the settlers, the men
who have, eventually, to pay all the
bills. It also contemplates the or
ganization of Irrigation districts and
the financing of the obligations of
development, after the manner of
municipal Improvement districts.
Other resolutions favored the per
fection of the present system of
water titles, enactment of legislation
to protect the settler against fraud
nnd urging the Investigation, by the
Legislature, of tho Kansas law which
permits an official scrutiny of the
assets and resources of people who
file articles ot Incorporation.
INVOICING TIIK ItAW.
Tho Hoard of Health of Oregon
has used sit Its persuasive powers in
tbe past soveral yoara In an attempt
tofgot correct statistics, as required
by law. It announces tbat, "Just as
rapidly as possible wo will prosecute
-overy physician, mid-wife or under
taker who fntls to comply ith tho
Tho following nro excerpts from
tho law which tho board will on
forco: "It shall bo tho duty of nil physi
cians, nceouchora or mld-wlrca In
tho stalo to roport to tho secretary
of tho board' ot health ot tho city or
county In which they may occur, all
births and deaths, and shall Inuno
dUtoly report contagious diseases ns
nro specified by tho state board,
which tnnj' occur under their super
vision, with n certificate of tho onuso
of death, nnd such correlative facts
as may bo required In tho blank
forms furnished by the State Hoard
"Any person or persons, any board
of health or tho ofneors of any cor
poration who shall violate any ot the
provisions ot this net shall bo deomed
guilty ot a misdemeanor nnd upon
conviction thereof shall bo fined not
less than 10 nor more than $100."
Tho Ilultetln extends to tho Red
mond Spokesman Its sympathy In tho
loss of Its plant by firo Monday
night. The publlsjjera will not miss
an Issue, however, whllo new equip
ment Is being secured. It takes
more than flro to kill oft a good
newspaper, and the people of Red
mond aro to bo congratulated that
tho Spokesman will rlso from tho
ashes a paper oven bettor than before
tho flames destroyed the plant.
Every national society or organi
zation finds It hard to get along with
out n publication. At a recent meet
ing ot tho national council ot tho Hoy
Scouts ot America It was decided to
establish an official magaxlno In tho
Interest ot tho organization. W. D.
Doyco ot Chicago, vlco president of
the U. S. ot A., offered to finance the
publication for threo years, at tho
end of which time he bclloves it will
be self sustaining.
The meeting ot tho Commercial
Club tomorrow evoning Is a crucial
one. II means tbat this organiza
tion which has been ot great benefit
to the town will bo let pass Into
temporary oblivion or made of
greater service than over before. It
Is up to tho pcoplo ot Bond to attend
this meeting and see to It that tho
club Is given a new and a Armor lease
Tho fact that a higher approprla
tlon has been secured for tho operat
ing expenses ot the Ilend postofflce.
largely because of tho pressure
brought to bear by Tho Bulletin, is
another instance of what a small
town newspaper can do for Its com
munity. Perhaps tho moral is,
"When you want something, give
your psper a chance to boost for It." ,
Figures compiled by State Super
intendent ot Education Alderman
show tbat or the 66 pupils who grad
uated from the eighth grade In
Crook county last year 1 are in high
school this session. This Is 63 per
cent, and as compared with other
counties in the state Is a tow percent
age, but threo counties being lower.
A pamphlet Issued by the Stato
Board of Health shows tbat for the
threo months ending December 31,
1911, 29 births, 3 deaths and 23
marriages wore reported to the board
from Crook county.

COUNTY CI.KRKH OFFICE PAYS.
It Is not generally known but It Is
a tact that the county clerk's office
Is more than self-sustaining. It takes
In nt lenst a third moro In tees than
It costs tho county to maintain It. In
the year 1911 nearly $7000 was ro
colvod In fees. Tho exact figures nro
$6970.38. This Is an average of
$580.86 Vi a month. The nxpolises
ot tho office averago about two-thirds
ot this amount- Tho receipts for
1910 woronearly as great as fof last
year. SoiTio $6839.65 was taken In
by County Clork Brown. This
means lots ot painstaking work of
tho most exacting kind.

WAY AI.1VE, T.VPP RELEASED.
Tho dead has conio to llfo again;
the lost Is found. Frank Way did
not know ho had been murdered
until he reachod Crescent last week
Ho was Informed at that place that
Douglas Tnpp was about to bo strung
up for his murder, so he got busy
with the telephone and Informed the
authorities here tbst he was a pretty
lively corpse. He said that ho would
leave at once for Prlnovllle and
struck out horseback arriving here
Way says that ho left homo In Do
rnmlxir and went to Klamath county
He also told Douglas Tapp, nts com
panion on the homestead, that he
might sell the horso tbat was found
In Tapp's possession at Burns. Thus
is tho mysterious murder cleared up
Blood clots and olhor dark nnd mur

On motion ot the prosecuting at
torney Tapp's bond of $5000 was re
duced to nothing, thereby In offoct
giving him his liberty.
BURNS BUILDING STONE
(Harney County News,)
Thero Is one Item of commerce
which tho News has nover seen men
tioned ss an asset In tho transpor
tation for railroads tapping tho
Burns section, but which, doubtless,
has not been overlooked In the cal
culations of railroad officials. That Is
the splendid building stono which a
bounds plentifully In theso hills. The
demsnd In all the cities of the state
at present Ja for Oregon building
stono, but there docs not seem to
be any proper transportation faclll
ties to reach tho places where It Is
found and convey it to where It Is
needed and the consequence Is large
quantities of such rock are hauled
In from the states. With a railroad
across the stato and passing through
Burns and along the neighboring
hills, the excellent stone abounding
here will find a roady markot, as
It can bo gotten out and handled
very cheaply and bo loaded anywhere
along the line of railroad as it skirts
tho city, A tralnload a day can bo
taken out tor a long time to como.

(Lako County Examiner.)
At the meeting of tho Commorclnl
Club Monday night It wns docldod to
tiilto up tho plan of netting n chtuigo
In tho stngo route between hero nnd
Hums. Tho present routo takes tho
mall around by Prlnovlllo nnd Silver
l.akn. n distance of about 373 miles
Tho proposed plan would run tho tluo
by xsny or Kgll. Hutte, Alkali. Abort
Lako nnd Vnlluy Falls, and thus
shorten the distance 207 mile. It
now takos lUo dn)s or nlmnst n
week to get mnll from Hunts to l.nko
vlew. The Burns territory Is a vast
area or productlvo country and much
or this could bo mndo tributary to

comparatively level nnd no steep
grades or hills would bo encountered.
