The Excess Acreage Question
SALEM, April 10. Helow Ib the
lull statement prepared by the Dms-
ortLand Hoard covering the excess
acreage rjueatlon on Central Oregon
Irrigation Company lands, as sub
mitted by the Hoard to Congress ac
eeiHpanring the proposed bill to con
firm titles:

vuirs In Oregon segregation list So.
. This IUt wai approved by the
question la Involved. As heretofore
stated this acreage Is upward of 17,
000 acres.
Much of this land has been patent
ed to the state and deeded by the
State to the settler. However, there
still remains a considerable area
which the State has not deeded to ac
tual settlers and which with the
knowledge that It may be conveying
a defeasible title It cannot properly
deed to the settlers. It Is probable
that the controversy could be ad
justed If water rights could now be
purchased from the company at the
same1 rate as was originally paid.
However, the Ilea price has been
fncreared from 1.75 per Irrigable

Ilowovor, rt th t!m: of making
tlihi apportionment no actual survey
of tho lands had been mrde tnd the
classification as to Irrigalde area was
made from a very rough estimate. I
Later a topographical survey of these
lands was made and it was found
that many of the tracts contained a
liVKor number of Inlgnble acres than
Hint shown by the original estimate.

secure water rights for the excess

not be secured, It would appear that
the settler must either be dispossess
ed of his land or hold the same under
a defeasible title And furthermore,
that the secretary of the "interior
will not patent to tho Stato any addi
tional lands in which the excess acre

Tho holders of those unpatented
lands will, therefore, be unable to
get even a defensible title to the
same. It Is suggested, therefore.
