ltoult State Decides Against
Forfeiture of the lloiul.
A Salem dispatch of the 3rd to tlio
Portland Orogonlan Bays:
lly a voto of three to one. tho State
Desert Land Hoard refused to com
ply with tho application of K. I).
Williams, of Crook county, calling
for tho forfclturo of a $25,000 bond
Klvcn by tho Central Oregon Irriga
tion Company to Insure tho enlarge
ment of tho Central Oregon canal of
tho project, and also to lnsuro the
stato aa to a llumo constructed by It.
Williams announced after tho
vote that ho would Instltuto manda
mus proceedings to compel the board
to declaro tho bond forfeited.
Charging that the company had
failed to comply with Its contract
in enlarging tho Central Oregon
Canal of Its project, and that becauso
of lack of water settlers were unable
to secure patents to their lands,
'Williams, an owner of land in tho
ptoject and representing a number
of settlors, appeared beforo tho
board a week ago and asked for a
hearing. The board directed the
company to appear before It and show
cause why Its bonds should not bo
forfeited, and today Roscoe Howard,
manager of the company, and Jcsso
Stearns, of Portland, secretary, ap
peared beforo the board for that
Flume's Condition Good.
The afternoon was consumed with
the Introduction of evidence to show
the soundness of tho flume and it
was all to tho effect that It was In
good condition. During the after
noon the board devoted Itself to the
question as to whether the central
canal could supply sufficient water.
Howard admitted It ought to bo en
larged, but said that it would be
Impossible- at tho present to secure
money to do the work. He contend
ed, however, that for tho present It
was large enough and declared that
If tho company is not further har
assed that It will bo In a position to
enlargo It or comploto tho north
"All theso complnlnts to tho board
como from n fow dlssntlolled settlors
llko Mr. Williams horo, who Is In nr
renrs with his payment, and lujuro
tho company and do not bonollt
them," said Howard. "Hack of
much of It nlso is Stato Kuglncor
Lewis, who scut Incompetent men
Into tho Hold and whoso Bourco of
Information Is Incorrect as to tho
cannl nnd our llumo. Tho llumo Is
In good condition and wo are doing
our lovel bcBt to reclaim tho lands
in the project and it wo can got rid
of this continual agitation from n
fow disgruntled settlers wo will bo
nil right. They aro not farmers, but
Jaw artists, and being unable to
mako any progress in farming, they
exorcise their Jaws. None of tho
real fanners aro hero presenting any
g'rlorauces, but aro at work."
"To mako nn order directing thnt
our bond be forfeited or directing
vis to pay now would bo futllo," de
clared Stearns In addressing tho
board. "You cannot mako a bank
rupt pay. You can force us to the
wall, but neither tho state nor set
tlers will be benefited by that. It
Is practically Impossible to secure
money on irrigation securities now.
Tho company is doing Its tcst."
"Now that you have grunted tho
company everything thnt It wants, I
would suggest thnt you allow It to
withdraw notes amounting to $10,
000 en deposit with a trustee," sar
castically declared Williams, after
tho board had ruled against htm
when tho question of allowing tho
company to substitute notes with tho
trustee for cash It had collected from
"Turn them all over to tho com
pany. This Is just horso ploy to
keep thorn with tho trustee as a
guarantee fund. If jou aro going to
do anything: with them at all, turn
them over to tho company and let
It use them In securing money to In
vest In the project."
Howard Protests Further.
Mr. Howard protested, however,
against such a procedure and after
discussing tho subject it was finally
decided to allow the company to sub
stitute with tho trustee notes for
about $2700 of cash collected by tho
Tho company represented that it
Intends to sue on a $15,000 bond
given by one of tho contractors on
tho project, and this, together with
tho further fact that the board do-
strcs to givo It every opportunity to
flnanco the project and wna unable
to neo where any benefit would flow
by reason of the forfeiture of tho
bond, refused to declaro It forfeited.
It also granted tho company an exten
sion of time to complete Its north
canal. The company represents the
largest Irrigation project In tho
Tht Qrssk Flours.

nnd tho longer sweep from knee to heel
gave the figure Increased gmce and
dignity. The same plan was frequent

paintings the same effect Is obtained.
