THE STRARNS PLAN.
Tho proposition advanced by At
torney Stearns In Salem yesterday
for the adjustment of the difficulties
between the Central Oregon Irriga
tion company and the settlors on tho
project would seem to be born of a
fear lest the proposed Irrigation dis
trict plan ko through. In fact. Mr.
Stearns admitted as much when he
said, as reported In Salem dispatches,
that the district might come In and
put the company out of business, and
on that account ho objected to It.
That the success of the dktrtict
plan would have tho elimination of
tho company as one of Its results Is
.thoroughly understood. That Is not
tho chief end of tho plan but It Is n
necessary and expected result. And
because the company sees tho hand
writing on tho wall It has come for
ward with its new plan.
In view of tho settlors' feelings to
ward the company, Mr. Stearns must
have realized that his plan had no
chance of success unless forced upon
tho settlers by tho Desert Land
Board. Otherwise ho would presum
ably have sought to obtain settler ac
ceptance of the plan and Indorsement
of It before the board. He m,ust have
known, however, that that was not
obtainable, and since it Is not he
must realize that after all he Is lead
ing a forlorn hope, because It Is Im
possible that tho 'Land Hoard will
taVo any favorable stand unless set
tlers agree to the idea.
The plan Itself seems to be little
different from tho existing situation,
so far as the dispatches indicate. Un
der the present law, as we understand
it, it Is now open to the company and
tho settlers to form a corporation
which shall take over the segrega
tion, stock ownership to be based on
acreage ownership. That seems to
bo what Mr. Stearns proposed In Sa
We do not believe that anyono
wants to see the company lose any
thing to whleh it is justly entitled,
although no great effort ean bo ex
pected to help save Its Investment at
Deschutes. On the other hand If It
wants assistance In saving what It
can It will have to meet the settlers
moro than half way, which it appar
ently was not doing In Salem yesterday.
HIGH COST OK WATKIl.
The settlers on the Squaw Crek
irrigation project are having their
troubles Just now with the company
and the Public Service Commission.
As reported In The Bulletin, the
Commission has permitted an In
crease In water rates, and the set
tlers are contending that unless there
Is a readjustment they w!!qult using
Under the new rates, it Is eon
tended, it would cost botween $1.20
and 12.40 per acre for water. Back
in 1904, according to figure printed
then, irrigation on that project coat
ebout 4 5 cents per acre and the set
tlers raised loud protests when It
was proposed to Increase the rate to
Anyway, they seem to have had a
merry row 13 years ago. Here Is
tho story, as printed In The Bulletin
for January IS, 1904:
"They are having some disagree
ment over water service over on
Squaw creek, A few weeks ago the
company that controls the Black
Butte ditch gave notice to the set
tlers under Its service that the charge
for water the coming season would
be advanced from 45 to G5 cents an
inch, an Inch being ordinarily suf
ficient to Irrigate an acre. The set
tlers were not pleased with that ac
tion and took steps to get other ser
vlco. They organized another com
pany uud bought a half interest in
another small ditch, intending to on
largo sufficiently to meet all de
mands. They sent ono of their offi
cers to PrlnevDlo to file notice of
water right and found that the other
ditch peoplo were an hour ahead and
had filed on the water."
CLANTON AND SALMON.
Tho recent commercial fishing
season on tho Columbia and other
streams wholly In Oregon was
mnrkud by the biggest run of salmon
over known. Thousand of dollars
were oaritsd by the fishermen us i
result of their tremendous catches,
nnd thousands of dollaVs moro will
bo received by tho ennnory mon s
a result or tno unusually uigii price
at which their product Is selling. Nor
dues the public fnil to share In the
benefit because, wore It not for the
groat supply the price would bo still
It Is not. however, because of the
profits Involved that tho Oregon sul-
man run Is most Interesting this yeur,
but because of the fnct that It Is
unique on our Pacific coast. This
year Oregon streams are the only
onos with salmon. There nro pr un
practically no salmon In the rivers of
California and Washington. .
Now things of 'this sort do not hap
pen without a reason. Salmon have
no greater deslro to be canned In this
state than In Its neighbors to the
north and south. 11 Is not out of
partiality to Oregon that they run
up her rivers, but because those
rivers represent homo to them. And
the reason they represent home and
the reason why there nro so many
of them to come back Is It. K. Clan
ton, master fish warden of the state
Experiments with tagged fish have
proved to the sadsfactlou of the au
thorities that salmon return to the
rivers from which they make their
first Journey to the sea. Now, for
many years the stnto of Oregon has
conducted fish hatcheries where eggs
were hatched and tho young fish
turned out, In nn effort to Increase
the supply, tho practice being to put
the fish In the rivers almost as soon
as they were hatched. ThH meant
that for possibly a month the. young
fish wandered around with the egg
sac attached, the prey of every swim
About 1911 the Idea was conceived
of holding the fish for a longer time
in order that they might have a
chance of developing to a point where
they were better able to care for
themselves when turned Into the rlv-
or. The Idea was pooh-poohed on all
sides but funds for carrying It out
were procured and the work begun.
Clauton modestly decline any credit
for the original Idea although those
who know say that it was largely his.
However that, may be, he was the
one who carried It Into execution and
to whom the credit Is due for work
ing out rt he details and methods
which have produced such successful
Under tho new plan the fish are
held until they are two or three Inch
es long. They are then turned out
In the river, due to return a few
year later ready for capture.
Thki year the first of the fish pro
duced under the Clauton method
were due to return. And return they
did. making the blggsst run of sal
mon in the history of the state. All
the evidence points 4o the fact that
the numbers ar due to the treat
ment at the hatcheries. And that
treatment is the work of K. K. Clan-
Deschutes county's No. 2CS Itns
gone to tho training camp.

declared, "but ! wo deplete our

"If our farmers and ranchers look
around a little, thuy will discover
more feed than they think now they
