.Mcixm Has Project Up.
J. E. Morson of La Pine has pa!
up his proposition to the desert land
board for tho reclamation ot hla
La Pine projeot. Tho proposal made
was largely along tho line ot that
which he previously submitted to the
board by letter, and which has beor
published, although his oral propo
sition includes tho west side as woll
as tho oast sldo lands on tho project.
He would have tho state purchase
tho lands and havo the dtstrlct de
veloped undor a special act ot con
gress. Tho matter has been taken
under advisement by tho desert land
board. Purchaso of tho land by the
stato would necossarily prosupposo
au act ot tho legislature authorlzlno
tho uso of tho money for that pur
pose, and consequently nothing can
bo dono in the matter until next year
at least.
