ernor of five coursi-H that might be
followed In workltig out the project.
Thu possible course, In the Gov
ernor'! estimation, ore aa follows;

2 Contract with some other per.
ron or company.

trict. t United States reclamation ser
vice, either alone or through coop
eration with the state.
6 Btate reclamation.
It appears that tho only method
that presents Itself to the Governor
aa feasible, with assured success, Is
state reclamation. This would be
"construction of a reclamation sys
tem with money Appropriated by tho
legislature and expended under the
direction of the Detert I-nnd Hoard
or auch other officer, board or depart
ment a the legislature may direct.
It la believed that thli li one of the
most feasible and satisfactory meth
ods of completing the project."

Association to Act.
The water users' association on tho
Columbia Southern segregation has
been notified of tho Importance of im.
mediate action, and it is expected
that durlifK tho week 'meetings will
be held and a definite plan mapped
out for presentation to the Legisla
ture and the Governor.
The general scheme proposed by
the settlers thus far haa been, In ef
fect, that of organizing and conduct
ing an Irrigation district. Its affairs
to be administered by the settlers
themselves, and lis financial backing.
If possible, lo come from tho state.
The report gives the following sta

On Chrlstmaa day, and for all of

of the raen petitioned for tho holl

are In the country and on homesteads
and who wanted a chance to get to
resentatlve Forbes haa replied urging
that the settlers be given a chance to
adjust the problem which Is essen
tially their own, at which tates -officials
havo made miserable failures;
ho urges that at least their plan be
given careful bearing before any Ac
tion is taken, or other plan consid
ered. His letter to Governor West is, In
part, as follows:
"I beg, however, to advise you at
this time that tbo aettlers on the seg
regation, together with what assis
tance they are getting from outlying
communities, are devoting consider
able time endeavoring to work out
a solution of tbo affairs of the com
pany. It seems to me that the set
tlers on tho segregation aro the only
parties In tho state who have all at
stake, and therefore the parties most
directly and deeply Interested.
"The stato of Oregon And the Des
ert I.and Hoard and various promot
ers have endeavored for the past sev
en or eight years to carry out tlie
completion ot this project. The at

Absolute failure, and it would seem

being a copy of similar rules used in

During the week investigation has
shown more than ever the great need

time for the next school term. A
widespread support for the plan Is
almost universally encountered. An
lntresting commentary upon the fa

(among pupils and teachers, Is the
