for another tour through the Inter

extension or tho Oregon ft Eastern
line on to Dog Mountain, a recent
letter rrom C. E. 8. Wood ot Port
land to a friend In Ontario, Oregon,
assumes unusual Interest.
Mr. Wood bad been In New York
nnd had seen both J. J. Hill and E.
H. Schln. Ho wrote of his Interviews
aa follows-
"I had a talk with Mr. James J.
Hill, which he said need not be treat
ed confidential, In which ho said ho
hod not abandoned a single original
plan for Oregon, but he had seen this
period of depression coming and he
had stopped all construction work ac
cordingly, but as soon ns warranted
his work In Oregon would be resum
ed, but at this time ho could giro no
more definite assurance than this.
I waa very glad to learn that ho has
no agreements with nnybody and that
his orl&Inat plans are to be carried
out Of course, you understand. In
auch matters as railroads, no man can
positively promise what can be dono

Members of O. O, I. Co. Wlatir
Users' Association Gathered fa
llend on Saturday DIcua Pro
ceedings Against Company. ,
Support of tholr directors la what
ever action they might see fit to tako
against the Central Oregon Irrigation
Company or tbo Dasort Land Hoard
was pledged by the members of-the
Water Users' Association at a wojl
attended meeting here on Saturday.
The action was taken after an'cXi
tended discussion of the relations
which now exist between the com
pany and the water users In which
the legal aspects of tho matter were
considered aa well an tho possibility
of arriving at some understanding
which would further tho Interest oC
both parties without legal proceed1
An undertono of hostility to tho
company nnd Its present officials was
apparent throughout the meeting.
Nevertheless when C. S. Hudson urg
cd fair treatment of the company and
that any action bo predicated on aa
examination of tho company's books,
as offered by Mr, Howard, hlo ro
marka were ravorably received and
it Is understood that steps will bo
taken by tho water user's directors ta
avail themselves of the offer. Two
questions In particular are to be In
vestigated, whether or not tho com
pany has up a 125,000 cash bondefor
tho rebuilding of the flume and
whether or not the maintenance fees
paid by settlers are actually used In
"maintenance or In part for that pur
pose and In part for the payment ol
company salaries.
On the first question Mr. Howard
and Stato Engineer Lewis are dia
metrically opposed and on the sec
ond, according to the legal advice of
Vernon A. Forbes depends In large
measure the rights of the settlers
against tho company.
Howard Make Offer.
Speaking on behalf of the com
pany, Mr. Howard asserted that the
fees collected from settlers were not
ufuclent'in theraselvco to 'pay tho
maintenance charges on the project
and that the salaries of the officers,
to which so much objection waa
made, wore derlvqd from other
sources. "If you find on Investiga
tion," he said, "that you ought to
have a receiver for the company, I'll
help you get one." Aa a more de
sirable proceeding for all parties,
however, ho urged cooperation In
procuring patent ta tbo Pilot Bulto
lands and In obtaining assistance for
the completion ot the North Canal
unit accoidlng to the plan outlined
by Governor West last January.
Tho patents are now held up bv
Stato Engineer Lewis, whoBe position
was stated In a letter to the company
printed n Tho Bulletin last week
On the North Canal matter It was
stated by V A. Forbes that the gov
ernment Investigation had been com
pleted and the report was now In Aho
