months of operation behind It, local
people and citizen of tho state at
large are specially Interested to know
somewhat of tho progress made on
Oregon' flrat officially-conducted Ir
rigation enterprise, tho Tumalo proj
ect. How are the costs working out?
That Is apt to be tho first query of
a taxpayer, many of whom entertain
sneaking suspicions that in tho end,
somehow, their pocket books aro go
ing to get the worst of this Initial
encounter with state reclamation.
However, the outlook to dato, is most
reassuring. The work is actually
costing well under the estimate. For
Instance, at the tlmo of making an
estimate on the work, the cost was
based on wood flumes throughout.
During the early part of thla soason,
however, on tho advice of tho project
engineer, metal flumes were substi
tuted for tbo wood flumes, tho cost
being something like $15,000 more
than tho estimated cost of wood
flumes. Evon with this additional
cost, the feed canal will still stay
under the first estimate.
Indeed, raarvolous to relate, there
aeemn to bo neither causo for com
plaint or actual complaints. About
tho only peoplo who eror howl are
thoo who are compelled to offer
competitive bids for whatever they
are to supply the project, In labor
or materials; for all purchasing Is on
the strictest business Imals unlike
most governmental enterprises and
the man with the lowest nrloe, nual-
ity considered, get the Job. So costs
are about as low as they can be.
To bo sure, this method Is often
hard on tho Central Oregon merchant
, who cornea nearer having a Just
I "kick" than anyono else, lor tho
1 Portland houses seem to sell to tho
I project at lower tlgures than thoy
' will to the merchant himself, so that
little or no money Is spent "at home.
However, tho project engineer sim
ply says that ho was told to put tho
job through as economically as pos
sible, and ho assuredly appears to bo
following instructions.
