Tho tlnio hna como to call nt
tcntlon to tho meaning to tho peo
plo of this section of tho present
activity ot tho North Unit Irrigation
district In connection with tho Don
ham Falls reservoir plan. Unless
immediate action is taken Deschutes
county stands to sco one ot its
greatest potential nssots taken from
it It tho plans ot the North Unit
aro carried through our futuro is
Kone. Timber will mean good busi
ness for many years but agricultur
ally wo shall have reached our peak.
Thcro will' bo nothing to look for
ward to.
Shortly stated, the plan of tho
North Unit is to proceed on its own
account to build the Denham Falls
reservoir and then to carry all tho
water stored thero through Des
chutes and Into Jefferson county
for exclusive use on the lands ot
that district. Nothing Is to bo left
for tho extension of tho Tumalo
project, for tbo North canal unit
or tho old Benham Falls segrega
tion, all, except for a portion ot
tho last named, In Deschutes coun
ty, and alt tributary to Dcnd and
Tbo original plan for tho irriga
tion ot this valley, as outlined in
tho Deschutes project survey, called
for tho reclamation of all these
units from tho impounded waters
at Denham Falls. Until tho North
Unit began on its present program
it was tho general supposition that
all would lio included in such plans
as wore raaije. Now our Jefferson
county friends have started out for
themselves alone. They plan to
eat tho apple, coro and all. They
expect to take all tho water stored
at Hcnha1m Falls and to leavo none
for any other district.
Will Dend and Tumalo and Red
mond stand by and do nothing?
Now that tho appropriations com
mlttco Is well on its way into other
sections, certain features ot Its visit
hero may bo mentioned to show
something of how tho spirit of Dend
la rccognlzod nnd what Is duo to
"Nick" Slnnott for persuading, tho
commlttco to como this way.
As Its Itinerary was originally
planned, tho party was to go out to
Mcdford from Crater lake and then
up tho valley to Portland. Mr. Sln
nott wanted tho party to como
through his district and proposed
that this bo dono, but was mot with
tbo argument that thero was no
menus of transportation from Crater
lake to Doml. This was no nrgu
mont to "Nick," however. Ho know
Bend nnd what it would do if called
on, and so ho answered nt ouco that
tho Dend Commercial club would
send cars to tho lako for tho party.
Then It appeared that transportation
from Klamath Falls might have to
bo arranged, and "Nick" Bald llend
would go to that city, although Just
why nothing was planned for tho
Klamath Falls peoplo to do seemed
somewhat odd. Tho coufldenco wns
not misplaced. Dcnd camo through,
as Mr. Slnnott know It would, and
when tho commlttco left hero It was
greatly pleased with tho attention It
had received.
A good part of tho credit for tho
route taken by tho commlttco in
crossing Oregon can also be given to
Director Davis ot tho reclamation
service. Mr. Davis had long been
anxious to see the Deschutes country
nnd his word, added to Mr. Slnnott's,
gave us the pleasure of tho visit.
Wo believe that coming develop
ments will provo that the attention
shown Mr. Davis. and tho commlttco
was moro than Justified.
nou'spapor editor from tho north
west states gathered at Spokane nnd
from thero mndo n thi'eo-dny trip
over tho extensive section In Eastern
Washington which it Is hoped soino
day jo bring under Irrigation. These
men were shown In tho Yakima, val
ley what Irrigation had dono and in
other localities what was hoped for.
They woro entertained by tho com
mercial bodies of tho various Iowiih
thoy visited. Every opportunity was
given them to tnmtllartzo themselves
with tho facts,
What tho pooplo ot tho Spokane
country sought by this entertainment
nnd excursion was, ot course, to got
their story across to thoso who could
help them rcallxo tholr desires by cre
ating tho necessary favorable pub
licity, that is, tho newspapers. That
thoy have dono no is shown by tho
examination ot tho newspapers refer
red to above.
Now, this Is not written merely to
show that nowspnpors nro useful an
u means of getting facts disseminat

purpose, which is to point out that
Central Oregon might well follow tho
Spokane example and, by getting In

. Although tho original plan for the
irrigation ot tho Deschutes valley
contemplated the reclamation of four
units, as pointed out hero yesterday,
tho present scheme of tho North
Unit is to appropriate all the sur
plus flow stored In tbo Denham Falls
reservoir and use it exclusively in
Jefferson county. Tho danger to
this section in such a uso of the
waters of the Deschutes is that none
of our reclaimable land can there
after bo nerved. It is a present and
very real danger and unless we take
stops for self protection our future
will bo gone. V
Tho reasons behind the North Unit
plan to tako all the Denham Falls
wntfcr aro several. In the first place
the district now figures a higher
duty of water for its irrigation needs
than was considered necessary by
tho reclamation authorities who pre
pared tho report on the Deschutes
project. Then, by tho present plans,
huge seepage losses are expected in
getting tho water down into Jeffer
son county, while another reason is
found In the general shortage of
water record i nthe past few years.
Just how much' weight is to bo
given to tho first and third reasons
In the distribution of the water re
mains to be seen. It would seem
strange, however, if the district
could arbitrarily determine Its own
water duty and on its own decision
be allowed all the storage water. It
would bo equally strange if the water
records were read wholly with ref
orenco 'to its situation and needs
Tho second reason, that all the
water is needed In order to deliver
Sooner or later tho directors of
tho North Unit Irrigation district
will make somo public statement,
wo assumo, attempting to Justify
tholr plans for appropriating all tho
surplus flow of tho Deschutes for
tho cxcluslvo benefit of their lands.
Presumably their argument will bo
based on their great need of water
to insure crops on tho dry farms ot
Jefferson county, nnd something
will be said of the fact that thoy
aro In position to proceed with tho
project, whllo there may bo various
delays necessary to Insure tho in
clusion ot any of tho other units.
The preceding Is, of course, based
wholly on supposition. Possibly tho
directors will franklyay that they
have found, as their plaiiB pro
gressed, that they needed all tho
water and so thoy have started out
to grab while tho grabbing is good.
It Is now, they may urge, a free-for-all
scramble and thoy want all tho
advantages thoy can get.
This argument, or any ot like
nature, tho North Unit mon may
bo able to Justify in their own
minds, but how, wo wonder, can
they square any such attltudo with
tho cooperative sentiment that has
ruled hitherto.
Early last year, when conditions
seemed to be working toward a
fight between tho different units
tho Dend Commercial club coun
selled against antagonism and urged
cooperation. North Unit directors
Joined In the cooperative campaign
and the club set Itself heartily at
work to obtain an examination of
the reservoir, site. Wo shall not
attempt to allot shares of credit for
securing the reservoir examination
but no ono will deny that tho club
did much to sccuro It. Tho club
has also dono other things on be
half of the whole Deschutes project
as a wholo, the latest being In con
nection with tlio recent vinlt ot tho
Appropriations commlttco.
If wo aro not mistaken no other
community had any opportunity to
share in this visit until tho Dend
committee Invited cooperation for
tho purpose ot securing an exami
nation of tho wholo Deschutes
project. Jefferson county might
havo been loft out ot the program
entirely had thero been any dis
position hero to treat tho possi
bility of Deschutes project irriga
tion on any other basis than that
of community cooperation. Tho
Jefferson county committee accepted
