REDMOND, March 5. Sorrowing over the
death of James Withyconibe, governor of Oregon,
ranchers and farming experts, gathered here at
tending the annual Central Oregon irrigation'
school, unanimously passed resolutions mourning
the loss of a true friend of the farming interests
of the state and extending their sympathy to the
family of the governor.
The resolutions are as follows:
"Whereas, Our governor, James Withycombe,
has been called by our Supreme Ruler from this
life to life eternal, and
"Whereas, Our governor in his life time was
always an active agriculturist, took great interest
in the welfare and development of both the live
stock and agricultural industries of Central Oregon
along with other parts of the state, and has especi
ally come in close touch with the people of this dis
trict through the state's activities in the Carey act
projects, Tumalo project and general irrigation, and
at all times Governor Withycombe sought to solve
the problems of our progress and development to
the best interests of the common people, and was
universally beloved by them, and during his admin
istration the industrial development of livestock and
irrigation has advanced to a large extent through
his efforts; now, therefore,
"Be it resolved by the water users of Central Ore
gon, assembled in the second annual irrigation school
at Redmond, Oregon, That the people of the state
of Oregon, and especially the farmers upon irrigated
farms, have lost a true and worthy friend in the
death of Governor James Withycombe, and do
hereby extend to his family our sorrow and sym
pathy in their bereavement, and
"Be it further resolved, That a copy of these reso
lutions be transmitted to the family of our governor,
and also conies be given to the press for publication.

WMien asked as to what dato tho
Orcgqn water coda would bo ready

that It should bo out and rt-ndy for

In answer to thu question ns to
whon tho Deschutes river 'water
right adjudication would likely como
up for consideration, Mr. Cupper said
that this project Is now being con
sidered thu most favorably of any
Oregon project in Washington, D. C.
Tho Cupper talk covered also vari

cation and administration of water
rights In Oregon and pointed out

In speaking of his cxperlcnco In
tho'brcedlng and raising of pure bred
Shorthorn cattle, D. M. Dlggs of
Prlnovllle, ono of Crook county's
leading stock raisers, provoked a
great deal of enthusiasm. Mr. Ulggs
Is a Shorthorn enthusiast and has
developed ono of tho finest ranches
In tho stnto nnd Is a recognized
authority on this breed of cattle. In

cesses In raising puro bred cattle,
nnd in advising tho irrlgntlonlsts In
tho purchase of stock to put on
their farms ho urged tho purchaso
only of thu. beat stock, available.
"Tho tlmo will come," said ,Mr.
Dlggs, In tho courso of his talk,
"when It will bo Just as hard to find

In tho political fans having their say
in regard to tbo matter. Aa a gen

Ono of tho saddest things in con

Tom was an earnest lobbyist for
