North Canal Project Matter Taken up With Secre

(Hpeclal to Tho llulletln.) 1
8AI.HM, Doc. 22. Settlors on tho
North Canal unit of tho Central Oro
Ron Irrlnntluu Company's project will
bo milled to moot In llond Haturday
afternoon, January 17, to consider
Governor West's plan for brliiulim
about co-operation between U10 Rtiito

Opposition of State MiiRlneor .lohn
II. Uiwls to tho Governor's plan for
corporation has had tho effect of
iiccoleratl.iK tho (lovornor'a uctlvltio
and ho has already taken tho matter
up with K. (J. ilopson, suporvlsliiR
enulneor of tha reclamation aorvlco
of thla state, nnd with tho Hocrotnry
of tho Interior.
It Is tho (lovornor'a Idea to submit
his plan first to tho settlors on tho
projoct and hoar tholr objections If
thoy havo any, and then take It up
with tho llond Commercial Club,
which will bo asked to Rot back of
tho plan nnd conduct an educational
camnalKn amonir tho other eomniar-
clal clubs of thn stntc. Then ho will
present tho plan to tho Oregon Irri
gation Congress, which wilt moot In
February nnd seek Its endorsement.
When tho plan Is doftlnltoly worked
out tho Oovernor will protont It to
tho Secretary of tho Interior, nnd
when tho LoRlslsturo meets n mens
uro ombodylnc tho plan will bo In
troduced. Already tho Oovernor has naked
tho Secretary of tho Interior to Rive
assurance, that In nvenl tho project
Is found to bo feasible and satisfac
tory, ho will favor expending 1400.
000 or 1S00.0Q0 of novornmont funds
on the hosts of dollar for dollar with
tho State.
HopMiii Apprme tho Plan.
KnRlnoor Ilopson of thn reclama
tion sorvlco has Riven his approval
to tho Idea. The oomiMUiy stales
I there nro 34,000 Irrigable acres in
tho unit, nnd $300,000 haa been spent
on It nn nbout JdOO.oOO u needed to
complete It.
"I do not hrsltnto to oxprcua my
conviction that thla project la a very
low priced ono, tho low cost bclnR
merely duo to tho peculiarly favor
ablo to)ORrnphy nnd the cheap canal
construction posslhlo In this locality,
also to tho absence of storano re
quirements," says Mr. Ilopson In his
letter to tho Governor. "I bellevo
sufllclont la known about this project
to warrant n careful examination of
tho situation by tho atato and gov
ernment, toRothor with an appraisal
of tho company's plant, theso to bo
natural resources can only bo solved
tho company, with a v1ow to tho ulti
mate elimination of tho company's In
terests and tho oarly completion of
tho project by tho stata nnd nation,
or both."
West Writes To Secretary Inne.
Governor West mado a strong ap
peal to tho Secretary of tho Interior
for co-operation In connection with
this projoct.

your last visit horo and slnco your
return to Washington you havo ox
pressed appreciation of tho attltudo
of Orogon and your Intention to allot
n sum for co-oporatlvo construction
of an Irrigation projoct In Central
"The state la now constructing the
Tumalo project In that region and
tho work has every Indication of suc
cess. In tho vicinity of tho Tumalo
project thoro Is a largo segregation
under tho Cnroy Act by a company
known as tho Centrnl Oregon Irriga
tion Company. This work was vis
ited by you last August. Work by
thin company hna been tiractlcnlly at
a standstill for a long time, owing
to tho Inability to finance further ox
tensions of tho work. Tho company
desires to Have tlio state or nation,
or both, anpralsn and tnko over an
Important unit of Its work, Including
soma 34,000 acres, thereby relieving
In of nn obligation under which It
cannot mako good.

consideration and havo obtalnod ad-
vlro from qualified experts. Includ
ing tho reclamation service. Enclos
ed Is n copy of a letter from K. O

convinced this Is ono of tho cheapest
and most fosslblo projects In the
stato: tno cliaractor of tlio country
you will yourself recollect.
"I bellevo an oarly examination
and appraisement of all legal and
physical facta bearing on tho project
nnd pertinent to a possible ncqu'al
tlon to tho Company a plant and the
early completion by tho state and na
tion In co-operation should be made.
"If the project l found feasible
It might he built during 1914 and
1 ill IV. poMlhly being completed in
1915. Presont Indications are that
all oxpetidlturoa, Including the ac
quisition of the presont plant will
not bo more than $800,000. While
nothing should bo dono that would
commit either tho Stato or Nation to
a project not yot fully Investigated
or determined upon, I would llko to
havo. If possible, an Informal asstir
anco from you that you will alldt
some $400,000 or $500,000 for n
dollar for dollar co-operation with
tho State, In the event tho project
bo found generally foaslblo and sat
isfactory. On my part I will pledge
my earnest endeavors towards seeing
a similar sum In duo time provided
by tho stato."

Stato Engineer tawlg says ho Is
opposing the. Governor's scheme for
