Dietrich, m rancher of the TcrrcDonno district, covers SO typewritten pages, and is only.one of a series of suits whlek the settler aro prepared to launch to gain control of tho project. Mr. DcArmond stated this morning. Its I unusual, length Is accounted for j chiefly by the largo number of ex 'hiblts which it contains, and which are Intended to show that adequate service is not now belug given by thn company for the land already sold. The complaint asks that on final hearing, the company bo restrained from collecting any maintenance charges, or from enforcing the col lection on any outstanding contracts until tho irrigation system la put In to condition to supply tho acreage which has already been purchased. l'c;icrubla Poscstdon A Iih. Peaceable possession by tho set tlers is the aim of tho sult.AIr. De Armond explained.

"This was disclosed beforo tho Desert Land board when Jt was shown that in 1919 the com pany delivered water to only 23,000 acres oijt of -(4,000. and that the fHll capacity ot.tho system was taxed to porfonn this service Evidence alao showed that during that season a large number of settlers had an In sufficient supply of water, and that Bomo of them lost their entire crops because of this.
