Itecent Order of Public Hcrvlco
Commission In Keanl to In
stallation of Itegulutnr.
SALEM, Jan. 12. (Special to The
Bulletin.) Chairman Mlllor, ot the
Public Service Commission, In fur
ther explaining the recent order ot
tho commission applying to tho Cen
tral Oregon Irrigation Company,
stated that tho Installation of meas
uring dovlcca at tho lands ot the set
tlers and at the expenso of settlors,
is not mandatory upon tho settlera.
The order operates, he states, to
force tho company to Install such do
vlco at the request of any settler, but
tho expenso must be borno by suck
settler. No settler need to havo such.
measuring device Installed unless it
la done at tho exercise ot his own
"We discovered that considerable
complaint had boon received from the
Individual settlers that they have not
been receiving their full sharo ot the
water, although enough water might
be received at glvon polnta for dis
tribution among the lands ot the in
dividual settlers. Apparently some
havo been benefiting; at the expense
of others, according to tho testimony
"To do away with these objection
and to make tho distribution to the
Individuals absolutely fair tho com
mission Incorporated In Its order the
provialon In regard to the Installation
of lfceasarlng devices.
"As has been pointed out before
Mr. Stearns made objection to thn
feature of tho order requiring the
company to Install such devices, oa
tho ground that under the contracts
with the settlers, since Juno, 1907, it
ia provided that all measuring de
vices Installed shall be at the expense
ot such settlers. Dut it has been
determined that tho order can stand
without amendment, by merely mak
ing It apply so as to conform with the
provisions of those contracts. The
situation simply stands now that the
sottlor may require such measuring
device to be installed it ho wishes.
He will have to bear tho expense,
whloh I understand Is nominal! bat
he Is not required to have such device
Installed under tho order unless It
serves his pleasure," said Mr. Mlllor.
No word has beou received hero
yet as to what action the Hoard ot
Directors of tho C O. I. Company
has taken'' In regard to accepting the
order ot tho commission.

(From Wednesday's Dally.)
Much misapprehension has oc
curred from the action of tho local
draft board in placing In Class I
thoso registrants who presented oaly
an agricultural claim for exemption.
In order to sot at rest such misun
derstanding, J. II. ilauer, a member
of tho board, calls attontlon to the
following ruling laid down In Selec
tive Service Regulation.
"If the registrant has submitted
no questionnaire or It nolthor the
registrant nor any porson In respect
