Tlm lliillutla reel r ml the above
leltnr Muaday. W. W. Howard waa
for IK Hioutha oaahliir of tlm Cttntral
Oreaon IrrlKHtioii CoiniKmy, IioIiik
illaeharMoil in Oatohor. 1 1 1 3 . Mr.
Howard waa askhd to Miim lir,
which Im did yoalnrday, and at that
time ohtharntod the wimral charntM
made In hi li-lter. uddlnR the atato
umiita whloli are iirlutml herewith.
Mr. Howard maintains that hi la
In no way actuated hy malice aunltut
the CotniHiny'a management, and
takoa hla aland aolely aa a aettlor on
the aogreatlon who iMllevea that on
ly hy thoroughly airing the iiroaent
alleged rotten condition of affaire
can they he cleared iip and the rights
,,f ,,mTp i.rnVmrlv Uif.TrVll Mr
' or """lira properly aareguarded Mr
I im. ward owns and operates 10 acre.
I Vfc miles from Deschutes.
In brief, W. W. Howard charges
that Itoseoc I low aril tells an untruth
when ho atatos that acttliira' mainte
nance fees ore not iihviI to pay mil
nrliHi. Ho nlleges that the C. O. I.
ortlrlals are grossly ovi-nnild That
oven when the comiHtny la pleading
imverty and Inability to Improve Its
system for tho benefit of settlors
thono In control are able to coinnmn-d-er
funds to put Into projccis or
Attliluvlt Ihirkk Slntemriit.
To show that he la sure or his
ground, Mr. Howard mnkes affidavit
to ull hla utateincnts. In which he
aaya they "are true to my beat knowl
edge and heller." and that "ho stands
ready to nubalantlate and accept re
sponsibility ror them."
The nlld revelations or th i
cashier come at an osuecially Inter
esting time, because the Water Us
ers' Association has petitioned thi
.(.ami Hoard to have stale authorities
examine the comuan books: thla tho
l.aml Hoard hna ordered done. Also,
all who heard him here soma weeks
ngo unduratood Hoseoe Howard to
nay that tho settlers wore at liberty
to examine the company's liooka to
ascertain how maintenance monev
waa being spent, and wore aittonlshed
Inat week when Mr. Howard denied
having made audi n atatement and
refused access to the lionka.
W. W. Ilownrd'a atatement fol
lows: "Hoseoe Howard has stated that
A Complete Stock.to
no salaries Here paid out or wa'alf
nanco fees. Mr. Howard (at tnl
July XG) also said that In them-Jetve
the settlers' maintenance feoe war
not auhleleMt to pay the salarlos. The
first statement Is one of tho untruths
mode hy Mr. Howard referred to h
"Hero are two example: ,
"Tho 8tanley-Davenporl ranch is
owned, to far us I know, hy Fred
Stanloy, president of the C. O. I.
Co. In 1913 when I was cashier no
maintenance roes on this ranch had
been paid since 1910. In 1913 the
Directors voted a salary to Mr. Stan
ley of 11000 a year. Previously, to
far as 1 am aware, he received no
salary, and eortalnly during my em
ployment by the comiany ho had ao
duties worthy or the name, that I
ever was ablo to discover. Then hi
salary waa credited to his raalnto
nance fees mi the ranch.
"Next cornea Jesse Stimrni, attor
ney and lecretary of tho company.
Ho owned the Ton Bar Ilanch. He
gaia sou a mnnin, nnu an open, aci
count with him Is carried,' so that the
maintenance, roes pay that aalanry.
In Htrt. In a nutshell the facts wei
that tho company had no money and
so paid this salary with maintenance
feee. And Itoscoe Howard aayn main
tenance feos were not used In pay
ment of salaris!
"It might be argued that Mr.
Stearns earned hla salary: that a
corporation was Justified In paying an
attorney such a salary a a retainer.
Hut remember tha' the company waa
"broke": It always called attention to
Us poverty when Improvement or Its
system we.- demanded by the set
tlers. And mi fai as the duties of
Mr Stearns were concerned, so far
a I know durlnc my IS month of
employment only two suits again
the cotnimny were, handled hy hl-n.
One or these was on oxcess seroage
liv Kendall or Kedmond. And there
Kendall won by default, because
Stearm. as he later confeaeod. had
mislaid the papers and rorgoiten th
case! This doesn't look hb U the a; -

burst of al on the part of Attorney
General Crawford. It looked as If the
warK might case September ).
Crawford advised the Land Hoard
that a fund or $r.0,00 must be set
unlile for the reimbursement or old
settlor who refuse to enter Into new
contractu, nnd as there was Just suf
ficient money In tho fund to complete
the work without this payment, con
struction must be ahut down to In
sure provision of the $60,000.
After a hot session. In which the
Attorney Uenera! came In for some
rigorous panning, the matter was
laid over until Engineer Imrgaard
was called In. Then !aurgard
pointed out that the State would lose
some $30,900 by temporarily sus
pending operatlonu, and further In
vestigation convinced the Hoard that
the miter or refunds to old settlers
under the Columbia Southern could
go over until next year. Ultimately,
money ror such refunds will come
from receipts from new purchasers
Kngtneer Laurgaard stated that al
though all hut about six who had
made payments oh tracts or the old
Columbia Southern project had been
notified ot the proposed refund, an
application ror tho refund of but

willing to tako new contracts, how
