Claude McColIoch Shows Possibility of Collective Financ
ing When Settlers on C. 0. 1. Segregation
Assume Control in June. ,
GREATER CREDIT MAY
(From Saturday's Dally.)
Nearly 150 mombors of tho Cen
tral Oregon Irrigation Company Wa
ter Users Association, with others In
terested, gathered this afternoon In
Sather's hall to hear Claudo McCol
Ioch, of Portland, explain tho possi
bilities of tho Irrigation district law
as applied to tho Contral Oregon seg
regation. Eighty-two Invaded Bond
this morning In a special train, 52
coming from Itcdmond and tho re
mainder from Torrcbonno.
Mr. McColloch's address was do
votcd chiefly to a contrast between
tho district system and tho associa
tion plan now In use. "In June of
tho present year tho control of tho
segregation will pass from tho com
pany to tho settlers and tho com
pany," ho Bald. "This will necessi
tate a decision on your part whether
or not tho district plan will best
Borvo your needs."
System In Hail Hliapc.
"Many aro deceived by tho namo
'irrigation district.' It Is merely a
mothod of procedure. There havo
been as many failures under this
ns under tho Carey act plan. Tho
question Is, will tho district plan mcot
"You will assuma tho responsibil
ity in June. You will no longer bo
ablo to criticize without criticizing
yourselves. Can you run things bat
ter than the C. O. I? Tho system
is In bad shapo now, and big Improvo
monts 'Will bo needed, and needed
soon. I havo asked whether threo
districts should not bo formed, ono
for each of tho units of tho project.
This does not effect, our discussion,
but personally I am of tho opinion
that three would bo worso than ono."
Mr. McColIoch outlined tho local
situation, showing the advantages of
tho district plan, and mentioning
that a $50,000 flunio would soon
have to bo replaced, failuro to do so
Inviting a 100,000 crop loss. "Whero
will you get tho cash?" was his
"In attempting to borrow money,
all you can give Is your personal
notes and thoso aro valueless unless
tho loan Ib floated locally. This
would bo extremely difficult. Mort
gages on tho land aro also an ob
stacle. You can't handlo tho prob
lem as a water usors' association,
but as a district, you will have tho
opportunity for organized collective
financing. This will allow you low
or Interest and longor terms. Ten
years of labor are at stake. You
must oraso tho past, and look to tho
future A child has been loft on
your doorBtep, and it's up to you to
tako caro of It, and at the samo tlmo
tako caro of yourselves.
"Possibilities for tho futuro aro
tho buying out of tho company hold
ings, and tho reconstruction of tho
canal In tho north unit."
Mr. McColIoch was present this
morning at nn Informal meeting of
water users In Redmond, and this
evening will address a gathorlng sim
ilar to the ono hold. In J) end. Ex
Governor Oswald West, who was also
scheduled to appear, was detained

Following his address, Mr. McCol
Ioch took his scat, but nnsworcd n
variety of questions put to him by tho
water users present.
Discussion of tlio rolatlvo merits of
tho association and tho district plan
fallowed, and a motion was put by
Chairman P. a. Young, and carried,
showing tho oonso of tho mooting to

vite a young man to sin and sbamo
than there are to help him to a lire
of purity and happiness."

avenues open to tho farmer on a
small ranch, to bigger profits, was
outlined at length by C. M. McAllstor,
special representative of tho Portland

urday ovenlng boforo tho mombers of
tho Eastern Star Orange, at tho
Pointing out that It was to tho
mutual Interest of packer and farmer
that tho farmer obtain a reasonable
profit for his livestock, Mr. McAl
lstor urged tho mombers of tho East
ern Star Qrango to organize upon
n firmer basis and becomo moro act
ivo In dealing as a community with
tho livestock market.
Farmers Should Organize.
"Ono of tho most difficult prob
lems that tho fnrmcr has to con
tend with Is that ho Is In need of
ready cash on domaud, and In order
to obtain a littlo money to mcot nu
omergoncy, ho goes to town nnd sells
u steer or heifer for almost any fig
ure that Is offered. This should not
bo tho case. Tho farmers can be or
ganized on a cooporntlvo baBls that
will enable them as n community to
get together n shipment of beet nnd
command a reasonable price for It,
and obtain a profit. It there Is profit
for tho lniyor to go Into tho flold,
there aught to bo a bigger profit
for tho farmers to cooperato In se
lecting tho market that will com
mand tho best price," he snld.
Other granges In tho state, Mr.
McAllister pointed out, nro accom
plishing splendid results along tho
lino of cooperative shipping and aro
being recognized ns a poworful factor
in tho moat distributing centers.
"Why not try a shipping day," sug
gested tho Portland stockyard man.
"Tho arrangements can bo mado In

ono or two head may bo ready, but

Agriculturally Can Help.
"Don't fall to call on your County
Agriculturalist, because ho Is tho best
informed man In your county as to
the conditions nnd needs of your
community. Ho can bo or great as
sistance to you In organizing your
markets and communicating with
persons best Informed on market con
ditions. "Thoro Is no bettor organization
through which to work than through
tho Orange, and tho Qrango should
soe to It that tho farmer receives n
JUBt portion of tho profit to bo re
alized from his farm. In tho strong
ly organized Oranges, tho farmers
market everything they havo for salo
and get tho best prices available."
Help Is Offered.
Mr. McAllister proffered his ser
vices, and tho Information of the
company which ho represented, to
enable tho farmers of tho Eastern
Star Qrango to organlzo for coop
erative shipping. Ho urged that tho
farmers study tho markets and study
their local conditions.

ed yestorday, V. V. Harpham and
Ed. Malm, of tho Deschutes forestry

tho two loft Bend Friday afternoon
until they left tho Inquest at mid
Inght Sunday, tho two had gone en
tirely without sleep, nnd Mr. Har
pham reported that ono membor of
tho original search party which set

as a result of the hardships under
gone. Mr. Harpham told of tho finding
of Christcnson's body, nnd how tlio
forest guard's own oklls woro used In
