After dinner tho party proceeded
on toward camp 2. Tho Uovernor
and others left tho nutos between the
two camps and proceeded over tho
canal by root, tramping along
through tho dirt and dust for a mile
or so. wherever tho Governor wont
he shook hands with the men on tho
works and talked with tnem. At
camp 2 tho party boarded tho nutos
again and drovo to camp 1. Knch
camp Is located In n lovely spot, but
camp 1 Is tho most Ideal as It Is
down by the Tuninlo.
Diversion llnm or Concrete.
At camp 1 tho trench Is nearly
excavated for tho concrete connec
tion which win be made with tho
flume that will start a few hundred
feet from the intake. The canal
hero Is to bo concrete lined. The
diversion dam across tho creek will
be of concsete, with an earth wing
to keep any high water from over
flowing into the concrete-lined canal.
Furst Ilros. of Bend were nt camp 1
when tho party arrived. They had
a load of cement on their auto truck
but could not get It across the creek
on account of the bridge being too
weak. Mr. Laurgnard at onco got
In touch .with County Commissioner
Hayley on the phono and he agreed
that tho county would pay for lum
ber to rcplank tho bridge. A team
place tho ono that now crosses tho
resorvnlr site has boon taken up by
tho Desert Land Hoard. Convicts
from tho state penitentiary will bo
sent over to build three and u half
miles on the cast sldo of tho reser
voir, and tho roadway will cross on
tho dam. Tho convicts will do tho
work nt some tlmo when they can bo
spared from other construction oper
ations. Plenty of Work to He Had.
There' can be no just complaint
from laboring men Hint they cannot
got work on the project. There are
150 men employed now, nearly every
one of whom is a Central Oregon
laborer. It has not bcon possible to
get as many mon cb were wanted,
nnd so this week Knglnecr Laur

mess hall at camp 1 for a cup of
coffee. Tho cook there holds tho
honors for making the best coffee on
the works, and rightly so, It seems,
as what he "toured for the visitors
would be hard to excol anywhere.
On the trip the feed canal was
mentioned frequently, and It seems to

the members of tho party seemed

Canal Ncnrlnff Completion.
The feed canal Is getting well along
toward completion. It is seven miles
long and nil but abqut a mile has
been excavated. Next year water
will be turned Into the canal to su
ply the settlers who have been served
heretofore by the old Columbia
Southern ditch. Seven hundred feet
of steel flume will bo used in tho
canal. None of this has yet been
received, but It is probable that It
will all be Installed before work Is
closed down for the winter.
Oood Order Maintained.
Although there are ISO men em
ployed on the works, only tho host
of order prevails at all the camps.
That this may continue the Governor
has commissioned Alfred Hansen and
Axle Dye, superintendents, and Harry
Itupple, englneor, as special police
officers. At each camp Is posted the
following notice: "Anyono commit
ting a nuisance within 200 yards of
camp will lie discharged." Similar
signs are posted regarding intoxi
Tho health of the men Is Iookod

The project has a contract with him
for medical attention and each man

a month for medical care. In case
of sickness he is then treated with
out any oxtra charge. All the money
derived in this way goes to Dr. Hosch.

Tho Governor touched briefly upon

La Pine, saying: "My fight on Mor

Of whnt Is seen on this project."
Mr. West stated that Morson's con
tract docs not expire till April 1,
1914, and the stato's contract with
tho government not till October 31,
191C. His contention with tho land
board Is that thero Is no hurry for
.isklng an extension of time and that
Morson should be called on ror a new
contract when his old one expires,
with surety bond instead or tho pres
ent bond, and that then the stato
would have plenty or time to ask tho
government ror an extension or time.
He said he believes that the board

an Inspiration to all who are racing
problems In this new country, to
learn or tho light mado by Mr. Oerk
Ing to get the Tumulo Irrigation Pro

that he will not profit so much di
rectly, as water bus been adjudicated
to him under tho old system. The
effort was made by him to a very
large extent for tho boneflt of all or
his nelghbois. And while he will or
course profit by the completion of
the project, It was a wholehearted
desire to see his neighbors prosper
ous which directed him In his work.
That type of citizen Is worth ten

Brick is absolutely fire proof in any ordinary conflagration.
Brick Buildings never burn, although they are .sometimes
injured by falling timbers or combustible interior woodwork.
A brick building is absolutely lire proof if wire glass is used
in the windows and if burned clay floors are used.
An interior fire in such a building is confined to the room in
which it originates; no outside fire can attack it.
The proportion of burned clay in a building construction
measures its fire prqof qualities.
Burned clay is the only building material that has been
through the fire before you get it, in such a manner that it will
resist fire. All combustible material is burned out of the brick
before you get it.
WHEN YOU BUILD USE BRICK.
