THE COLUMBIA SOLTHKKX.
Atjthls io'rig range U Is dirOcult to
ascTrtalnactr what was saifd and
waTiot s3d-' by Stato Engineer
Lewis before the Desert Land Board
in1 regard iJ tho Columbia Southern
pfoject. ' Two rorUand papers
quoted hltri as favoring Federal siip
vrrlston o'r the construction work
and jubeYrig ot t,he opinion that a
"larger "area' than that actually em
braced' In tho Columbia Southern
vegregatlon should be reclaimed now
by getting government cooperation
and about doubling the amount ttiat
3ias been appropriated for tho work.
It Mr. Lewis has been misquoted
nnd slandered, as Mr. Van Wlnklo
a Laldlaw said he has been, there Is
so cause for comment. If ho sud
denly has contracted "cold feet",
and now, after bis own proposition

Mr. Lewis was one ot the foremost
workers for the Cilurabia Southern
bill. His figures wcro accepted at
par.- He had every opportunity to
express his Ideas to the Legislature.
It is inconceivable that so soon ho
has experienced a change of heart.
Until wo hear from him, The Bulle
tin does not care to bellero that tho
State 'Engineer has lost his nerve
the minute actual constructive work
stares him in the face the first. It
has been said, that he has ever enter
ed upon. We prefer to believe that
Mr. Lewis will show the same enter
prise and xoal in tho physical accom
plishment of the task before him
that he .has displayed In laying tho
plans upon which It is to be built.
Too much praise cannot be given
the stand Governor West has taken
in the matter, as shown by his state
ments In tho Portland press and' in
his telegram appearing on tho first
page of' this issue, which is, In
reality, a personal message and
pledge or good faith from Oregon's
executive to tho settlers on tho lands
of tho' Columbia Southern segrcga-
"on. Jit Is very apparent that If patrons
era Isfany tendency on tho part or
T other state pflfcer to shirk the
ponsiulllties of the task. Oswald
tst J'Ql accept his share. It Is to
bojved. he will receive the support
a stand nferlli, and there is no
.oub't than"e will. The Governor's
xessage to The Bulletin is simply an
lortement of the plan already ac
ted lur the Legislature a plan
sqnted Ip detail, and approved in
fall, jf Stafe Engineer Lewis.
The Oregon Journal stages tje
.ase well: t
"Tho legislature acted upon a cer
tain, definite nronosnl. That was to
complete tbo original project and' J
fulfill, without endless delay, the'
.moral obljgatlou of the state to set- J
tiers who were led to bellavo that .
the stn'o In some measure was be- J
Wnd thq , projects launched under! -,
In. fTurAV jlnr I t
"Throush Its governor and legis
lature the state has just adopted a J
definite project and declared its poJ-
Jcy. It decided that the stato should ?
Iiccome re sponsible. It set aside. $
H&O.OOu for the purpose ot building
dam and canals and putting the wo- X
ter on tho Innd. Tho bill does not J
contemplate a larger project or any ,
dairy cream: thero ought to bo moro
hogs to drink and grow fat on separ
Every onco In n while thoro Is n
gold mine excitement. Thero should
bo an excitement duo to something
moro profitable than any of the Cen
tral Oregon gold mines yet discovered
tho hog Industry. Why, with hogs
bringing nine cents every rancher In
this valley should have his mints In
operation his pastures full or hogs,
For tho past three yeapi the Portland
market has topped the country. Thq
time was when, no matter how many
hogs had been raised in Central Ore
gon, they C.QU14 pot have bc,en mark
eted In Portland the transportation
was lacking. But now there are two
lines ot railroad to Haul tho porkers
to the stockyards.
In the words of Shakespere,
"The farmer that hath no hogs upon
his ranch, '
And Is not moved by concord ot
Is fit to live upon no Central Oregon
Tho rrlfomi ot his mind are slow and
And his success will not be extra
Let no such roan be trusted."
On this subject the Culver Tribune
"Nothing Indicates bettor that
thero will b0 man changes In the
manner ot farming than the largo
amount of fencing for liogs which Is
being built this yoar.Thls indicates
only ono of many changes which will
be made. The grain which has here
tofore been wasted on tho land wilt
now go into pork. Being equipped
for hog raising the farmer will le
able to make good out of his potato
crop when the potato market will
not Justify the shipping of them as
is tho case this season.
'It has repeatedly been shown that
potatoes make good feed ror hogs,
not 6nly by tho'ofjicr places where
the experiments have been tried !tt
potatoes have been tgi In this vicin
ity and round to be good reed."

P YOU WANT TO OWN A LOT
T in Lytic, the most desirable
delay. The week of February 21 to
28 we sold 45 lots and most of
them were in Lytic. To get a good
selection means to act at once for
they are going fast and in another
month this addition will be en
tirely sold out. If you dont take
advantage of this fleeting oppor
tunity you will regret it, f6r a
day's delay may mean a few
minutes walk farther o(it every
day you live pn the lot.
