Funeral- Horvlcoa for Mrs. Harold
Smith, who died lust wook in Ilond,
wero hold at tho gravosido in tho
local comutery yesterday uftoruoon,
Hqv. Stownrt, of tho Methodist
Arriving at headquarters i went
Into the major's quartern where we
spent a moMt pleasant hour before re
tiring. The major Im tho mom hu
man man I hava met in tho army,
being a lawyer In civil Ufa and a real
and genuine American.
Wore you ever lu a oovo or a coal
mine? If ho, you hava snm Idn3 of
wlioro I wf-nt to sloop, down, down,
down Into the ry bowels of the
earth. Ilvary little wayij thoro aro
qffahoot whre the men hIhdp. My
hunk won a little too short and I
found It necessary to wrap myaolf
around a large post. Overhead wna
u corrugated Iron roof which seemed
to bo the camping place of u family
of rats who were evidently holding a
reunion. Regardless of those' things
I had a most comfortable night. All
water has to be carried, ho It la very
precious. Try to wash your teeth,
shave and clean up In a cup ot water,
that Im what I did so I know It In
At the risk of tlreing you I'm going
to tell of our trip this afternoon.
Lenvlng after lunch, the major, lieu
tenant, secretary and myself started
to ascend a hill, whose name will be
written In glorious letters In French
history. Km Hides are ho pitted with
shell craters that thoy have lost all
semblance ot smoothness. Here and
thorft n pair of shoos protrude or a
white bono can be soon, giving mute
evidence of the tragedies and sacri
fice paid to hold this ground. Many
griivoa are marked with tho cross and
tho trl-colors of France. On one In
hutvs u heart shaped stone with the
number of tho man and u little crocs
carved on Its surf nee. We looked
on the reverse sldo and found tho
nnimuvof aftAmerlcan soldier who
hud made It' and placed It there as
ii mark of hl admiration for tho
heroic soul burled there.
At the crest of the hill we came to
a famous tunnel made by the bocho
and through which he transported
his mon and (supplies. It was a
spookie trip through here, we used
a candle and flash light. Under toot
was mud while from overhead drip
ped watur. At last we reached a
stair way leading up, up to a ladder,
this brought us to an obeurvutlon
post on the very crust ot the hill.
From here with the aid of the tolp
scope I saw tho Gorman line and the
huche moving about. Retracing our
steps to tho opening wo returned
through tho water soaked advance
trenches to our qunrtors.
You cannot possibly Imagine tho
aw fulness of the struggle that must
havo taken placo hero, after viewing
the ground, soolng the terrible ef
fect of shell fire, hundreds ot sbollB
exploded and otherwise It seems to
me that Hell Itself could have noth
ing mi thlu hill. How nny human
belug lived through It Is beyond me.

Jay H. Upton, of Plnevllle, presi
dent of the Oregon Irrigation Con

advised a 'preliminary meeting ot

mulate n program to ho carried out
at the Portland mooting, and In con
nection with tho general Irrigation

solving the problem of the leaks in
tho Tumalo reservoir.
Upton Is Speaker.
"The chief need of this section is
to Interest the Federal -government
In the development ot the Deschutes
Valley," Mr. Upton declared
"Through the publicity afforded us
during the Irrigation Congress, wo
can do big things for Irrigation and
for Central Oregon. Every man from
this part of tho country who can pos
sibly do so, should be In attendance."
Mr. Upton spoke of the billion dol
lar reclamation appropriation plan,
mentioned the tact that because ot
surveys already made, Oregon needs
llttlo in the way of preparation for
irrigation development work, and
touched on the plans which have been
suggestod for the mending ot the
Tumalo leaks. Ho urged that the
Tumalo situation bo takon enro of

A. Whlsnant nve credit to Mr. Up

that individual letters bo written to
Congressman X. J. Slnnott ot this
district, sotting forth Central Ore
gon's Irrigation needs.
Fred X. Wallace, Tumalq Irrigation
project onglueor. who made his first
uppoarauce since his rocont illness,
spoke on the mending ot leaks in

Call is meeting with roal success,
was shown today whon partial re

Is taken to indicate that, .pructicully

After hours and n halt of tho nift
iest wrestling ever seen in Ilcnd, Ad
Gustavo, ot Ilend, nnd Ling Hasanta,
Hindu champion middleweight, ac
cepted n draw at the Hlppodromo
last night. A fluke rail at tho
ond of two hours nnd four minutes,
when tho Oriental was acefdently put
out of commission, by a solar plexus
Jolt from tho Dend man's head, was
disregarded by Ilcforce Stephenson.
At tho closo of the match, the
wrestlers signed a contract to appear
here again on Christmas to compete
for a purse of $1000 purse. Each
posted a 50 forfeit.
Doth Gustavo and Rusanta won
popularity with the fans by tholr
cleverness, and by tho clean tactica
which characterized the entire bout.
Ilasanta worked the too hold over
time, but his hands were not qulto
strong enough to keep possession of
the Argentine champion's foot whon
on two occasions ho had gained a
soeming advantage. Ad's favorlto
grip was an arm scissors, which ho
secured almost at will, and used In
endeavoring to tiro out his opponent, '
but the Hindu squirmed tree each
time with apparently no bad results.
Roth men repeatedly broke seeming
ly deadly holds Just when a decision
hung in the balance.
Good preliminaries ushered In the
main event, Ernest Clayton, ot Rend,
winning two straight falls from
Charles Dixon, while Kid Savago,
donning tho gloves with "Rill" Wil
liamson, won on a foul. Ernest Lo
Clair and Ed Williamson went four
rounds to a draw, "
Contract Signed with District Vrtf

Which Will Cover I,ue
of $210,01)0.
(Fiom Saturday's Dally.)
Final assurance of tho sale by tho
C. O. I. company to tho Central Oro
gon irrigation district ot all holdings
In Deschutes and Crook counties was
made yesterday at tho meeting ot tho
district directors In Redmond, when
the amended contract for transfer ot
tho property was approved, and ar
rangements tor the financing of tho
deal completed. Tho purchaso prlco
is mimed nt $200,000, and to meet
this obligation members of the dis
trict will vote 011 a $240,000 bond
issue on January 15, 1919, It was
decidod. Tho $40,000 excess, It is
estimated, will take caro ot discount
nnd Interest on tho bonds tor tho
first year.
According to tho forms ot tho con
tract, tho company agrees to sell all
land and water rights, Its Irrigation
system, all unpaid maintenance and
ull real and personal property, in
cluding tho townslto of Deschutes.
Forty-six hundred acros of unsold
land and 1700 excess -ucrearco aro
also transferred. Tho actual value
of these two Items lu tho deal oasily
offsets tho amount mimed in tho con
templated bond issue, it Is figured.
Prior water rights aro specified for
maximum capacity ot tho iutnkcs for
tho preseut ditch system. , .
Tho bonds which will bo voted on
In January' are for 20 years, and as
tho realty transferred amounts to
45,000 acres, tho incumbrance on
tho property will amount to less thun
$G per aero.
Tho completion of negotiation tor
tha salo is considered a long step in
advauco tor tho causo ot irrigation
in Crook and Deschutes counties.
