Tho lant link or tho Columbia
liver highway, 12 and ono-hulf miles
from Holife.rU to tho Deschutes rlvor,
was contracted for grading, tho Job
going to tho Clarkson company for
1180,871. Tho lowest bid on grnd
lug tho IT.i miles botween Madras

I1C3.G21, and was referred to the,
highway engineer for further con
Ileturnlng from Portland, whoro
with County Commlaslon C. If.
Miller, ho attonded tho mooting of
the. ntato commission, County Judge
It. W. Kawyer stated this morning
that on all requests rotating to road
work In Deschutes county whoro ex
penditures of monoy wero asked, tho
commission was willing to mako
no authorisation until after tho fato
of certain bonding measures Is do
elded at the, spring elections. Tho
two requests which camo under this
heading wqro for tho surfacing of
The Dallcs-Callfornla highway from
licnd to tho north county lino, and
for thn starting of grading on tho
Central Oregon highway.
Ik'fiiMit Deplored,
J'Tho refusal of tho commission to
authorize tho surfacing of tho high
way from Ilond to tho north county
lino Is particularly uuforttuiato at
this time." Judgo Kawyor said In re
ferring to tho action taken by tho
highway board. "In ninny places
whoro tho now grado Is being built,
It Is on thn location of tho existing
road. In. doing tho now work, tho
old surfneo Is torn up, and In a vory
short tlmo, those sections, horotoforo
nt Joast passablo, will become ox
tromejy difficult. As tho ground
dries .and becomes rutted, wo will
havo iih bad n road to tho north as
wo havo had at times to tho south.
"If tho bunding moasurca carry In
May, tho commission will probably
arrange for surfacing, but work at
that time, will bo more uxpenslvu bo-!
cnuso of need for regradlng, and will
ho less satisfactory because of tho
dryness of tho oarth.
"It Is llkoly thnt horoaflor tho
commission will arrange for surfac

March .11 Dato Set When Company
May Show Cause Why Injunc
tion Should Not Do IhmuciU. '
To Prevent Sale. - '-
The first step In tho legal campaign "
mapped out by the settlers on.ile"5Cr.
O. I. segregation to oust tho company v
from tho control of tho project, was
taken here on Tuesday when D
Armond & Erskine, of Bond, and
Harrison Allei and John R. Latour
cttc. of Portland, filed suit In Circuit t
court against tho company, and'ae-' if,
cured from Judgo T. E. J. Duffy a
temporary1 restraining ordor to pre- ,
vent the company from making aay kM
further sales of water rights or from
making delivery of water to aay
lands in or out of tho segregatloa, la
addition to those now served. Tao
order also prevents tho delivery ot
water for 360 acres in the vicinity eC
Powe.lI Butte, temporarily nullifying
the findings made by the Desort Las4
board on December 4. March 31 hi
the, date set by the court for the com
pany to show causa why an injunct
ion should not bo issued. ,
Settlers Determined.
Tho main complaint, which is filed
in tho name of H. II. Dietrich, m
rancher of the TcrrcDonno district,
covers SO typewritten pages, and is 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. "Tho .naeeasltor
of the proceedura which wo have In
itiated, Is evidenced by thu fact that
tho company Is not ablo now to sup
ply sold lands with tho water neces
sary for Irrigation, or oven with the
water rpqufrod under tho company's
construction of tho settlors' con
tracts," ho said. "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.
