High prnlso to tho pcoplo ot Con
trnl Oregon for tholr long endeavor
to Irrigate tho thousands of acres
ot land in Doschutes, Crook, and Jof
forson counties, Is contained in n
comprehensive rovlow ot tho history
of Irrlgntlon in this part ot tho
stnto, published In tho Orogon Jour
nal under the caption, "Tholr Long
Battlo." Tho artlclo concludes with
an nppeal to tho people of tho stato
nt largo to uso tholr utmost endeav
or to bring about tho passngo of
tho Lano-Mondcll bill, which will
mako possible continued develop
ment. Tho completo artlclo Is as follows;
"Ono of tho grandest battles over
fought Is going on over In Central
Oregon. It Is a conflict by farmers
to bring raw land under production.
If helped to got water, tho irrigation
farmers ot Ccntrnl Oregon In tho
vicinity ot Dond will ndd SOO.000
tons of alfalfa to tho annual produc
tion ot Oregon.
"For 10 years, tho avorago prlco
of alfalfa at tho farm has beon $1S
which would mean an Incrcaso In an
nual crop yield of $14,440,000. Dur
ing tho war years, alfalfa brought
as high as $28.
"Abundant water for bringing all
this land under productivity can bo
stored along tho Deschutes neigh
boring Bend, Frlnovillo, lledmond,
Madras, Culver and Opal CUy.
"For years and years, farmers
over thero havo been planning,
struggling and contriving for nn am
plo supply of water. They havo mot
disappointments and postponements
without number. Thoy havo stuck
to tho gamo with tho determination
of last ditch llghtvs. They havo
seen success Just ahead many times,
only to bo baffled in tho ond. Hap
pily, they havo had enough ot suc
cess to keep them full of purposo
and determination to keep on until
victory is ultimately won.
"Tnko tho farmers on tho Tumalo
project. It was away back in 19001
holo through which tho water flood
ed, or to suggest means for remedy
ing tho trouble. Whether tho fault
In tho ground can over bo corrected
nt a Justified cost Is conjecture.
Fuller Information as to tho exact
nature ot tho fault hns been supplied
In tho last few weeks.
"Professor Crosby, ono ot tho best
known geologists In America, until
recently head of tho geological de
partment of tho Boston School ot
Technology, left Bond Inst week af
ter two or thrco months spent in
'.ho vicinity ns a member of tho fed-
sral reclamation board for examin
ing tho Bonham falls and other pro
jects proposod under tho survey ot
tho Dcschutos mado several years
ago cooperatively by tho federal and
atnto governments.
"Ho mado ah exhaustive study of
tho Tumalo trouble Ho thinks tho
fault is not n sorloa ot openings, but
a Blnglo ono, running In n straight
lino varying In width from 20 to 100
feet for a dlstanco ot two miles. Its
outline Is now traceable It is un
happily located in tho bottom of tho
reservoir slto on tho east side. Pro
fessor Crosby is ot tho opinion that
a sufficient study of tho fault will
roveal n means of correcting it, but
does not venturo to nnnounco either
tho process or tho cost.
".Meanwhile tho farmers on tho
project aro still planning and striv
ing. Thoy held a mass mooting on
Wednesday of Inst wpok to consider
ways and means for getting nn nm-
plo supply ot wnter. Thoy nppolntod
n commlttco which met In tho oftlco
ot tho project manager, J. F. Wal
lace, last Sunday. Thoy do not in
tend to givo up tho struggl6, baffling
as tholr problems and postpone
ments havo beon.

It la certain that' tho secretary will

or thereabouts that a project for rc-and tho other farmers, who, llko
claiming 27,000 acres was undcrta
ken under tho Carey act by a private
concern. Contracts for purchnso of
17,000 acres were entered Into by
tho farmers. Tho company became
embarrassed, tho project was passed
around among various companies,
tho farmers waited and waited for
water that never came, and finally
tho stato took over tho project and
conbtructcd a reservoir.
"A great dam 75 feot high, over
400 feet long, 350 feet thick at tho
base, and with Its foundations em
bedded 12 feet in bedrock, stands
at the foot ot tho reservoir ready
to hold storage water for which they
have waited these 20 years.
"The great dam cost $110,000,
the rights of way $55,000, and con
struction of the project tho remain
der of $400,000. Everything thnt
human foresight could do to prevent
the thing that happened, was done.
Borings wero exhaustively mado all
over tho slto of tho reservoir basin.
These preliminary Investigations
were mado by tho best engineering
experience obtainable. At their con
clusion the reservoir bed was pro
nounced fully fit, and tho work
went forward.
"It was not until tho project was
finished and tho water turned In,
that the defect In the slto was dis
covered. Then the high hopes of
tho patient and planning farmers
wero dashed (o earth by discovery
that through a subterranean scam
or fault in tho underlying bedrock,
tho water poured down in a torren
tial stream and flooded away in tho
bowels of tho earth.
"A survey by a board of experts
made shortly afterwards failed to
locate tho exact nature of the great
them, aro striving to bring 200,000
acres of fertile but dry land under
productivity, aro worthy citizens who
aro doing their utmost to help them
selves and by that process to add
heavily to tho wealth producing ns
sets ot tho commonwealth. Thero
are no moro deserving men.
"Tumalo Is not a total failure
About 5000 acres aro under water,
but not In ample supply. On fllo in
tho office ot tho project manager
aro applications for an additional
2000 acres. Among theso applica
tions are many from returned sol
diers and Bailors. Project Manager
Wallace, who with Infinlto devotion,
has stuck with tho Tumalo project
through thick and thin for 13 years,
says that if sufficient water wero
avallablo ho could sell 4000 ucrcs
of land in tho project within 30 days.
Nothing could more profoundly evi
dence the dcslro of peoplo for farms.
The land on tho project is rich
and highly productive under
wator. Two crops of nlfalfu aro
grown In addition to tali pasturage
after the second cuttlirg. Tho ave
rage yield Is four tons. By uso of
sulphur, applied for tho first time
last year, tho yield Is almost doubl
ed. Tho quality of tho alfalfa Is
14 to 20 per cent, better In heal
producing effectiveness than that
grown in milder regions. Ton car
loads ot Bulphur, 400,000 pounds,
uro used in this ono slnglo .district
In a year, and tho amount Is In
creasing. Ono of tho most success

Peterson, used 100 pounds per ncro
last year. Tho uuuul application
Is 40 pounds.
