n Deputy L'rgeit on AulhorltleN
A petition has been circulated re
questing tbe state game warden to
appoint John Usher a deputy game
warden on salary for tho ensuing
year. Mr. Usher served last year it
a ipeclal deputy, without compensa
tion, and has been reappointed on
that bnsl for 19K. Tho proposal
Is to have him devote all his tlmo
to the work, It being maintained that
many violations or the game law
arc made, and that a he live on
tho upper river he ;s well situated
to handle the work. A. F. Bh Ire
man, at llend, Is a warden now. It
Is not proposed to deposo him, but
to add another warden.
Mr Usher I now engaged In con
structing n fish way around the falls
on Fall Illver, for tbe atate authori
ties, to permit trout to get nbovo that
point nnd Into what la believed Is an
excellent stretch of water ror spswn
Ing. Ho propose to ask the atate
to finance tbo destruction of the
"fish trapa" by blasting out tbe rock

The stormy weather ba continued
through anotber week locally, and It

this community will be broken ror
rough treatment by tbe elements. It
has been a bad mixture or rain, snow
and slush, and sarao sunshine thrown
In to accentuate tbo badness or the
bad days and nights. Tho storm
ha prevailed nil over the country,
however, so Uendltes are not alone
those who have fe,t tho effects of
old borets and bis cohorts. Tere

Were Among the Important Speakers
The net result or the Oregon Ir
rigation Congress held In Portland
last week sectn to be about as fol

Carey act has not operated success
fully and presentation of a substitute
plan whereby tho settler can give a
first mortgage and secure Immediate
title to bis land wore contained in
A resolution urged the state Legis
lature to provldo funds for tbe Im
mediate relief of settler on tbe Col
umbia Southern project.
One of the most Important and
the shortest resolution provide
that no reclamation project be open
ed for settlement until the water Is
ready for distribution. This would
prevent such disastrous results as
those experienced by the Columbia
Hosldence requirements on Irri
gation projects constructed by tbe
lteclumatlon Service were declared
unjust and unreasonable and action
was urged that will allow water
user 25 years in which to repay the
government construction expense.
Adjudication of tbo water right
under the Central Oregon Irrigation
Company's project, which was the
subject of an addrre at Friday's
meeting by Iter. A. O. Walker of Al
falfo, was asked In a separate set or
resolutions, which recited "that ac
tion along this line be taken at an
early date and that land holders un
der the above named project be re
quired to speedily clear said land
and bring same under cultivation
and put tbe water to beneficial use."
