Both are well known hero where
thoy had resided since childhood

Asks Transfer of Wafer Rights Hearing.
The Pacific Live Stock Co. has
asked tho hearing of water rights
of Silvies River transferred from
tho state board to tho federal
court, according to a Salem dis
patch published in the Journal.
This tnovo will bo resisted by the
smnllcr water users as it would
cause much nddilional expense
for them to defend their rights.
Tho rights should first bo deter
mined by the state hoard and if
the litigants aro not satisfied ap
peal man be taken. This is the
equitable way and The Times
Herald hopes such a course will
he persucd in justice to tho small
user. Tho dispatch says:
Abolition from Edwin F.
Troifilwoll, nttornoy for tho Paci
fie Livestock Company of Cali
fornia, was received today by
tho state board of control, re
questing removal of the adjudi
cation of tho waters of tho Sil
vies river in Hnrnoy County,
from tho state board of control
to tho federal court On the
other hand a strong protest from
tho water users association of
that district has also been receiv
ed by tho board of control.
For tho first timo this raises the
question, whether the state hoard
of control is a judicial body or
only administrative. In tho past
tho board has been working un
der the iiBsumntion thnt it was
only administrative, in which
case a petition for the removal of
tho case would be ignored, but
if the body is judical then the
act of filing the petition auto
matically transfers the adjudica
tion case to tho federal court for
hearing. State engineer Lewis is
looking up tho law.
Tho livestock company con
tends a federal question is in
volved, as it is a foreign corporation.
