$70:1.000, according to Htato Kngl
iioct John If. Lowls, who has Just
returned from a meeting with In
torentcd parties at Madras, where thu
dial wan negotiated.
,M Whether tho deal will bo finally
consummated is contingent upon
whether thu north unit district ob
tains certification from tho state se
curities commission of tho proposed
bond Ibcuo and also obtains approval
ot tho capital Issues commlttco tor
tho Issusnco of bonds. Uut Htato
Engineer Lewis expressed confidence
In tho plans of tho district and be
lieves they will result In much
groator development In Central Ore
gon. . "North unit comprises 100,000
acres nonr Madras, Metollus and
Culver, now being cultivated by dry
farming methods," said State Engi
neer Lewis. "Water for Irrigation
can bo had by storage In tho pro
posed Ilonham Falls "reservoir, 1C

cheapest and best storage on tho De

acres In tho north canal project noar

land- near I'rinovlllc, which should
como under this reservoir.
)"Au understanding, with the north
unit will eliminate 'tho Central Ore
gon company operating for a profit,
leaving tho settlors In this- basin In
n position to secure Irrigation at

among themselves as to tho proper
distribution ot the cost ot the reser

"It Is tho hopo of tho directors
that tho Hood water supply can bo
