EOIATE ACTION" SAYS WEST
Governor, J. N. Teal, O. Laurgaard and A. H. Devcrs
Inspect Columbia Southern Project Today and
Speak Here Tonight Big Job Starts at Once
"Tho Tumalo project I going to
bo rushed through. There will bo
no hitches. Wo have tho money, tho
plans nnd the enthusiasm, and I ex
pect by the end of next summer that
It will be completed."
So spoke Governor West lait night
regarding the old Columbia Southern
Irrigation segregation, now known a
the Tumalo project. Ho added that
he personally will devote much atten
tion to the matter, spending prob
ably many week of thl summer on
the ground, for tho Governor I mak
ing a hobby of thl enterprise and
will bend every effort to push It
through to a speedy success.
With Mr. West, who arrived at the
Hotel Hend last night, are J. N.
Teal, an attorney of Portland, recent
ly a prominent candidate for tho of
fice of secretary of the Interior and
father of the Deschutes federal-state
survey scheme; A. II. Dover, of Clos
sctt St Devers, Portland, and O. Laur
gaard, project engineer. All are In
specting the segregation today, and
thl evening will speak hero at a
meeting to Ins held at the Star The
air on Wall atreet at 8 o'clock.
Wet In Kntliuilastic.
Governor West wa most enthusi
astic concerning tho outlook for the
Tumalo lands. All the land board is
now heartily In sympathy with the
plan, and ita successful completion,
he believes, will set an example that
will bring prosperity not only to the
settler dlrcttly affected, but will es
tablish n most profitable confidence
In all other Irrigation enterprises and
prove a splendid boon to this phase of
Mr. Teal, than whom there arc few
better Informed men In Irrigation
matters, together with tho Governor,
had much to say concerning tho pe
culiarly favorable outlook for the
"Ono great feature," taid he, "Is
that In this case there will be no ne
cessity for selling land. Too often
irrigation enterprises have been hope-'
lowly tangled up because their back
ers were obliged to peddlo the lands
beforo the project was actually run
ning." With the Tumalo project. Governor
West stated explicitly that no land
will be sold until all the ditches are
completed. Ho added that so far a
nit own opinion waa concerned, ho
would be glad to eo the time limit
for the return of tho state's loan
lengthened, so long a Interest was
paid, Inasmuch a tho money practi
cally In use by bona fide settlers
would tie doing tho state far more
real good than If lying Idle In the
Lniul Will He Popular.
Already many applications for

ho Gcvermr that every aero can be
sold several times over when the timo
Mr. Teal outlined the nmiy advan
tages that the state would have In
conducting tho enterprise, as opposed
to private corporation. Ho stated
that In his opinion all work of this

public bodies, and mentioned that
the many mistake made In the past
in federad Irrigation enterprises woro
really a splendid foundation of ex
perience that would prevent tho pos
sibility of their rccurrnncc.
When asked what hapened to tho
proposed enlargement of tho Tuma
lo project and federal cooperation.
Governor West said that the schomo.
had simply died.
May lie Knlargcri Later.
"There Is no reason why It should
not be takon up later," he added.
"We shall simply complete a work:
that can bo made a unit of a far
larger undertaking. Whatever the ul
timate size, the dams and dltche we
shall make now would be of tho name,
character. I really believe that when
thl proves a success, and all tho
acreage is occupied by prosperoua
ranchers, the government easily cart
be induced to take a hand in enlarg
ing the scope of the work."
In this view Mr. Teal coincided.
In discussing tho Deschutes sur
vey, which already is under way In
Ita preliminary stages, Mr. Teal ex
pressed himself of the belief that It
was the first step toward tho ultimate
utilization of every possible bit oC
water and power from the Deschutes.
"And this will mean that somo day
Central Oregon will contain tho
greatest Irrigation enterprises in
America," he added.

"Next year thero will he up to 350

Mr. Laurgaard added that all tho
materials for the big reservoir dam
will be freighted from Bend, and
practically all the equipment, except

Deschutes. A llend I but ten miles

that with tho heavy freighting from

great direct boneflts from the con
struction activities. JubI us it will of
