Everything points to a gTeat
influx of homcsockers'into central
and southeastern Oregon during
the colonist rate period. It seems
they are all headed for the unde
veloped portion of the state where
they may secure public land.
We understand spring plowing
has already begun in some por
tions of the county. Tho weath
er is fine for such operations but
the snow and frost in the ground
still holds the general operations
back except in favored locations.
This, however, is an advantage
as the slow melting snow allows
the moisture to penetrate the soil
rather than run off and tho de
lay of plowing and seeding is of
no consequence, there being
plenty of time.
LOCAL WATER SUITS DECIDED.
The Portland Journal gives the I remain but should not be ele
following two suits over water vated. It was alleged that Han

erable interest to local pcoplc:
Two important eastern Oregon
irrigation suits were settled in i
the United States court today by'
Judge Bean, the opinions being
read by Judge Wolverton. Both
were suits brought by the Pacific
Live Stock company, one against
the Silvies River Irrigation com
pany and the Harney Valley Im
provement company, and another
aganist W. D. Hanley and others.
The former suit was decided in
favor of the plaintiff and the lair
ter in favor of the defendants.
In the suit against the Silvies I
River Irrigation company, it was Blue prints of any township in
claimed that the defendants were Burns Land District, showing
diverting water from the Silvies i name of cntryman, date and kind

miles over a nearly a Hat country
before emptying into ' Malheur
lake. The plaintiffs own thelaiul
through which the river flows on
its way to the lake, and owing to
the level stretch, the stream
branches into innumerable canals
which irrigate this land naturllay,
Without the water the ground
would be worthless.
The two defendant companies
own land further up the valley
and built-a dam to divert the
water onto this land, claiming
they were taking surplus only,
which would not bo missed by
the land further down.
Judge Bean held that no show
ing was made of any surplus
water being in the river, and
therefore granted an injunction
restraining the defendants from
diverting any more water from
the Silvics. The right is reserved
to the defendants to apply for a
vacation of the order if a show
ing that there is surplus water
can be made.
The second suit was a supple
mental bill to enforce a decree se
cured in l'JOl preventing, II. C.
Levins and others from taking
water from the Silvies. The de
fendants have dams across both
the cast and west forks of the
river and it was stipulated in the
first suit that these dams should
dam, had used a drainage ditch
for irrigating purposes, had al
lowed the water from the river
to flow over the country road to
his cround. virtually using tho
country road as an irrigating
ditch, and had built a dam across
Embree's slough to divert tho
flow of water from plaintiff's
land. Judge Bean held for tho
defendants in all points except
as to the Embree's slough dam,
which he ordered removed. He
held the defendants might re
cover their costs.
