Declares Patents Cannot Kmio to
Carey Act Lauds Unless All IrrI
Riiblo Acreage Watered Su-
promo Court Decision Opposed
(Speclnl (o Tho Bulletin.)
SALEM, July 13. Tho Desert
Lnnd Hoard has received n letter
from tho General Lnnd OIIlco in which
tho old excess ncrcngo question on
Cnroy Act projects Is rovlved. In
oftoct tho Washington authorities
declare that patents cannot bo issued
to, tracts Involving Irrlgnblo acrcngo
not provided wltlv.wnter, and tho llvo
cornered puzzlo Involving tho com
pany, settlors, courts nnd land ofllco
Is resumed.
Th6 predecessor of tho Central
Oregon Irrigation Company sold
wntor rights to 'settlors boforo It wns
determined how much of tho lnnd
could bo Irrigated. Tho settlor as
sumed ho could Irrigate nil tho lnnd
in his tract. When wntor rights he
came moro valuablo tho company de
clined to deliver water to nil tho
Irrlgablo land and sought to mnko
delivery according to tho rolatlvo
prlco paid for each tract. Tho set
tlors appealed to tho Desort Laud
Hoard for relief. Tho benrd dodged
tho Isbho and shouldered tho respon
sibility on tho courts by ontorlng nn
ordor to tho effect that In Its opinion
tho Courts would docldo in favor of
the settlors.
State Engineer Lewis contended
thnt tho law wan not bolng complied
with nnd thnt nil Irrlgablo lands was
entitled to water. TIiIb additional
acrcago requiring water further ag
gravated tho question of tho ade
quacy of wator supply arising on nc
count of tliu oxcoks scepngo. Lewis
declined to cortlfy lists No. 9 nnd
10 for patont, which resulted tn n
dolugo of printer's Ink and tho pass
ing of (ho lists for patont without
tho State Engineer's signature
Now comes tho Cienornl Lnnd Of
fice warning tho Stato against pass
trig defeasible title to tho sottlors,
"It doei not seem necessary nt tho
present tlmo, howovcr, to request a
reconveyance or to take other stops
looking toward tho rovostlng in tho
United States or tho lognl tltlo to
such tracts, Rlnco it woll tuny bo that
tho cntlro matter cnu ho ndjustod,
nn adequate water mipply for the
entire Irrlgablo area of every patent
ed legal subdivision assured, nnd ul
timately tho sottlemont nnd reclama
tion of tho land secured, and thus
tho object of tho Carey Act bo ac
complished, In which event, of
cnurso, no stens looking towards tho
vacation of tho orronoously IsBtiod
potent would be necessary. Tho mat
ter In called to your attention, how
ever, ro thnt tho Stato may not trans
fer tho dofeasnhlo lognl tttlo, unions
and until nn ndoquato wntor supply
for tho particular subdivisions In
question shall have been secured."
What action tho Desert Lnnd
Hoard will tnko or can tnko Is un
certain. According Ik) tho olllclal
Intimation ovory settlor on the pro
ject who lins u Stnto deod to a tract
Involving tho excess ncrcngo question
has n patent which might bo revoked
unless arrangements nro mndo to Ir
rigate tho entire Irrlgablo nren.
Tho Desert Land Hoard will also
bo confronted with tho problem of
outlining n policy in regard to tho ls
stinnco of deeds In tho futuro on
tracts of this character. To add fur
thor complication to tho question, tho
Stipromo Court recently hold ngnlnst'
one of the oxcess acroago Bottlers In
tho coso of C. O. I. Co v. Whlted.
In other words, Washington officiate,
Interpreting tho Cnroy Act, tnko a
stand exactly opposed to tho recent
finding of tho Oregon Supromo court.
