A Salem dispatch in a recent
issue of the Journal nays:
The first Application for a con
tract with the state for the drain
age of swamp lands under the
provisions .of the swamp lands
drainage act passed by the last
legislature, was received by the
state land board yesterday from
C. B. McConnell of Burns. The
application is for a contract to
drain Malheur lake which covers
46, 000 acres. The estimated cost
of the project is 9246,124.
Mr. McConnell says in his ap
plication that he and his associ
ates, under the name of the Har
ney Basin Reclamation Co., have
made proper legal filings on the
flood waters of Silvies River,
which empties into Malheur lake,
for irrigation purposes, and have
been engaged during the last
three years in making surveys,
gathering data, and that they
propose to construct a compre
hensive irrigation system as a
part of their reclamation Bcheme.
The company's plans are to
hold the flood waters of Silvies
river, the chief source of supply
of Malheur lake, in a big reser
voir, which will be a part of an
irrigation system for the reclama
tion of land in Harney Valley,
and to drain the lake into Harney
lake snd the South fork of the
Malheur river. The applicant
agrees to commence the work by
June, 1914, and to expend 10 per
cent of the estimated cost the

The death of 0. S. Preston
which occurred at the Burns
Sanatorium last Tuesday morn
ing, June 24, removed a highly
respected man from this commu
nity. He had resided in this
county but a short time but dur
ing that period he had made
many warm friendships that will
last Mr. Preston had been ill
for seyeral days at his farm home
nesr the lake. He was thought
to be suffering from typhoid
fever and this was reported 'n
our last issue, out just oeiore
his death his sickness was diag
nosed as pneumonia.
Mr. Preston snd his estimable
wife who is now ill Rt the Sana
torium, but improving rapidly,
took up their residence on a
homestead near Harney lake four
years ago and although advanced
in years Mr. Preston soon show
ed his neighbors that he was
made of the right material as he
has been one of the most pro
gressive farmers in that section,
having worked hard toward the
development of his place and was
a moving spirit in bettering con
ditions throughout that neigh
borhood. He was a very accom
modating neighbor with the right
spirit toward all, therefore his
friends are many and sincere.
Obadiah S. Preston was born
in Indiana snd was 68 years of
age. Most of hist life was spent
in Iowa where he was married
41 years ago and where he had a
large circle of relatives. The
family moved west a few years
ago. Five children with the
widow survive him. Mrs. E. C
Holloway of Salem, Oregon; Mrs.
A. W. Youtz of Emmettsburg,
Iowa; Don Preston of Ontario;
J. E. Preston of Minneapolis,
Minn., and B. E. Preston of
Spokane, Washington. Two sons
Don and B. E. were here for the
funeral, the former come over
Ontario where he is manager of
the Oregon Light and power Co.,
upon receipt of word of the
illness of his father, arriving be
fore his death. The younger son
arrived Wednesday evening. De
ceased has been a member of the
Methodist church since early life.
The funeral was held yesterday
afternoon from the Presbyterian
church, Rev. Dr. Babbidge con
ducting the service.
The many friends of the family
extend sincere sympathy to the
Mr. McConnell arrived home
Thursday and when asked about
the above, said:
"The drainage proposition re
ferred to in the Salem news item
involves no new condition or
principal except as to the manner
and method of application and
droceedure in the reclamation
work. Anyone making an in
telligent investigation of the wa
ter supply and water conditions
of the Harney Valley, especially
from the engineering and agri
cultural points of view, will read
ily discover that the irrigation of
the semi-arid lands and the drain
age of the lower and marsh lands
are inseparable and must neces
sarily be worked out in conjunc
tion. There must be a control of
the water from the time it leaves
the mountains until it is all ulti
mately used or proDerlv disposed
"The storage of the flood wa
ters of the Silvies River in reser
voirs above Harney Valley will
materially chancre the conditions
down at the lakes. This in itself
will tend to dry up the higher
portions of land now flooded or
submerged. Such land, however.
would not be fit and readv for
agricultural purposes without the
construction of a drainage sys
tem. The drainage system must
be commenced and extended far
beyond the limits of the lake re
gion. The irrigation of the up
per portion of the valley will
naturally raise the water table in
the lower lands. This must In
con trolled by drainuge or a large
area will be left in its present
unfit condition. Again, after the
land ia so drained it must be
tupplied Hth irrigation water ut

"The state legislature in the ses
sion two years ago passed u law
introduced by Thompson, then
Representative from )ke Coun
ty, providing for the drainage of
the State lands comprising
swamps, marshes and lake beds.
The bill was vetoed by Governor
West and passed during the last
session over the veto and without
amendment In our opinion, the
stand taken by the Governor
was proper and the bill should
have been amended to conform
with the suggestions contained
in his veto message. He recog
nized the bill as a meritorious
and necessary measure, but in
sisted upon some provisions
which would restrict the acreage
which could be held by one per
son or corporation ana the price
for which the! land should be of
fered for sale. In other words,

which has resulted under the ad
ministration of the swamp lands
in the past. This point cannot
be cured by collateral contract as
the Supreme Court has recently
held that the State Desert Land
Board cannot contract, even for
the direct protection of the set
tler, without specific authority
for that express purpose.
"It is the province of and to the
advantage of a reclamation con
cern to aid in and secure the set
tlement of the land and, there
fore, there will be less risk of
land monopoly where this mat
ter is handled by the water com

corporation for the purpose of
acquiring the land for private

to be arranged and, of course.
