Governor West from H. D. Turney of
Columbus. Ohio, one of the Eastern
landholders ot the Central . Oregon
"I am fortunately reminded of
your visit to Columbus about one
year ago by the receipt of the follow
ing telegram: 'Dam completed this
morning. I splendid piece of wo-k.'
"It Is entirely owing to you thnt
we have been able to accomplish as
much aa we have. 1 desire you to
know that I appreciate what you
have done and In this I am Joined by
my associates here. Aa explained to
you when you were here, our people
had apparently lost so' much money
In the Deschutes . proposition that
they were loath to go any further:
or, aa they thought, to throw kool
money after bad. If there la an)
credit for what baa been done, It Is
duo entirely to yourself."

During the couple of- houraj'that

People of I-aldlnw and the Colum
bia Southern aegregatlon are at work
upon plana that will Iks presented to
the legislature for tho completion
of the C. 8. project.
. Sunday an Informal meeting was
held at Laldlaw, attended by J. E.
Sawhlll, secretary of tho Central Ore
gon Development League. At that
meeting the following letter of Mr.
SawhlH's waa read and the plan It
outlines endorsed. That the various
plana outlined may be made familiar
to the peoplo of the aegregatlon, and
to those of all Central Oregon, every
one of whom the prosperity ot the
Laldlaw country directly affects, Tho
Bulletin herewith publishes the text
of Mr. SawhlH's communication:
Up to tho present time there haTo
been suggested and given moro or
less consideration four plans for the
solution of the difficulties that now
stand In the way of the auccesaful
completion ot thla project.
The flrat plan la that of entering
Into a contract with Mr. Kntx or
some other private Individual or cor
poration under tho Carey Act. Owing
to the various contracts and condi
tions under which purchasers ot
water rights In the past are now
claiming title to these landa this
seems to me to be Impossible for any
person or persons to finance unlesa
the margin of profit allowed la so
great aa to be a aerloua menance to
the development of tbo country. Ac
cording to the estimates of the Stato
Land Board aa publicly announced
by tho Governor of the State, the
estimated coat of reclaiming these
landa abould not exceed f 15 per acre.
Up to tho present time Mr. Katx and
hla associates have been unable to
finance the project with an averago
Hen of $66 per acre, and It is not
reasonable to assumo that any other
Individual can or will finance It for
less. Broadly speaking, any plan for
the reclamation of these or any other
lands In Central Oregon which con
templates the allowance of more than
100 per cent promoters profits seems
to mo to be against the ltest Inter
ests of the public and a serious draw
back to the development of the
country. For tbla. If for no other
reason. I, land In thla I know that
the officials of tho Central Oregon
Development League concur) would,
not look with favor upon any plan
which contemplates the reclamation
of theae landa by private Individuals
through the Carey Act
Another plan which has been sug
gested Is that of endeavoring- to per
suade the United States Reclamation
service to take up and complete this
project. Thla plan I believe to be
