i It in the recommendation of Percr
! A. Cupper, ntato engineer that thn
settlorn on tho Contral Oregon Irri
gation project and tho C. O. I. Com
pany should avail themselves of the
services of tho Desert Land Hoard
to arbltrato tholr differences and
onco and for all como to a settle
ment. Thin recommendation was
contained in a report to tho Desert
Land Hoard In which it wan also rec
ommended that tho proposed con
tract between tho C. O. I. Com parry
with tho Lone Pino Irrigation Dis
trict bo withhold from approval for
at least 90 day.
Mr. Cuppor's" report In full In as
"Tho Contral Oregon Irrigation
Companx proposes to deliver water to
tho Lone. Pine Irrigation District and
cancel an equal area of Irrigable pat
ented land In tho project, asserting
that the procoduro under Section 6
of tho Contract of June 17, 1907,
i permits of such transfer. Tho d la-
tojJnct,on11 between this transaction aad
tho ordinary transaction under this
section Is In the area of tho tract
embraced and the fact that tho land
is all located beyond tho extreme
limit of tho project, requiring a sub
stantial modification In tho Irriga
tion system. It would seem, how
over, that this would not necessarily
put It beyond tho application of sec-
tlon C above referred to, which reads
i nit tnMrwx'm
" 'It Is further agreed by and be
tween the parties hej-eto that no
water rights for lands not embraced
In this contract shall bo sold by tho
party of tho first part except upon
written application to tho Stato Land
Hoard, and the citicejlatlon of an
icqual area of Irrigable land embrac
ed In the contract. Tho specific
tracts In this contract to be cancell
ed by tliccconii.Davty shall bd de
slgnitM in tho written application
of t?-o ilrst party. Tho salo of water
rights to lands not embraced In this
contract as above provided shall be
mnita militant ,i tlm ti'itti,. in.m. .in, I
conditions in all respects as lands In
thin contract.'
A number of the Hoard rulings
have limited the company In tho ap
plication of this section, however,
and no land would bo nvallablo for
cancellation exeept tho unsold pat
ented land, of which there, are some
to deliver water to these 1.000 acres
In addition to a dollvery of l.S aero
feet to all other lands served from
the canals, then it would seom that
section C of the contract would under
ordinary clrcunistnncos bo applica
ble. Consider Water Supply.
"Tho settlers hnvo rnlsod the ques
tion that l.S acre feet per aero is
tnsutnclent to properly Irrigate tha
laud, calling attention to the fact
that they are entitled under tho law
to "sufllcleut to raise ordinary agri
cultural crops." Tho quastion nu-
i uiraiiy arises wnai constitutes a ao-
termination of this quantity and has
It been determined? Tho Statu fixed
this amount In its contract with tha
Company and has requlrod tho com
pany to construct Its works accord
ingly. The Federal Government nan
said that It Is willing to patent tho
land on this basis. This would seem
to constitute a determination in-so-far
us tho obligation of thn company
to deliver wator Is concorned. In
other words, tho company could
hardly bo required to deliver addit
ional water ta tha lands under Itn
contract. Tho Attorney-General has
advised tho board that a delivery of
l.S aero feet Is all that can bo re
quired of the company without addit
ional compensation. Tho record
would seom to ludlcato that tho ob
ligations of tho company aro satis
fled wheuover tho cuual bus aulllclent
capacity to deliver 1.8 ucro foot to
tho hind. However, beforo taking
up tho question of cauul capacities.
wo should consider thu matter apart
from its strictly logal phuso.
"If tho limitation of 1.8 aero foot
per ucro will result In n failure or
partial failure on this project, snd
Profossor Powors of Corvullis advises
that not less than 2 aero feet should
bo nvallablo, tho board should t'uka
such reasonable precaution to lus'uro
a dollvery of additional wator using
Its best oudeavors to protect tho
rights of all concerned.
"Water has boon sold to some 43,
000 ncres of land, und it would bo
disastrous to tnko uny action that
would doprlvo those lands which
hnvo boon doveloped ut couaiderublo
oxponso und hardship, of sufficient
water for their rensonublo uso. If
It Is truo thut thoso lands cannot ba
properly Irrigatod with tfcnVr water
available the Hoard should 'ffit hesi
tate not only to disapprove tjTja con-
