Harney county Is ono of tno fow

Tho nbovu 15 linos of typo loll thu
story of tho beginning t tho great
est era Harney county has over ex
perienced. Tho htory means that
Harney valley people are working to
gether. It moans that uvery laud
owner In tho project Is on tho ovo of
tho greatest property over known
It means that 83,000 acres of (ho
bust soil In Oregon Is finally about to
bo (".oveloped unit cultivated to a
higher extent than was ever before
possible under methods that within
threo years will bo considered prim
itive. It means that instead of some
yenrs dry nnd lean, and a few yera
Iohr and fat, every year will hold a
full measure of productiveness and
plenty.
Succeeding step In the develop
ment of thn district will start Mon
day, when JuiIro Dalton IIIrrs, who
Is expected today, canvassea tho voto
and announces tho olflclal renult of
election.
Within ten days following, tho
board of directors aro required to
meet nnd organize tho district, elect
ing a secretory and IIxIur his salary.
Tho directors are also charged with
securliiR euglnuT8 to prepare and
iiHfouiblo data for a complete plan of
IrrlRatlon and estlmato the cost.
Thu work of iho oyRluuors will be
hnMoned or retarded according to
their ability lo Rain access to Rovem
meui records of contours on the res
ervoir site, made when tho project
was under Federal Investigation sev
oral years ago. Surveys of tho val
ley must also bo made, to determine
thu courses of ditches, After tho
plans of thu englneorH aro complet
ed, they must be submitted to tho
statu engineer for approval. This,
It Is understood, Is a matter of form
for tho protection of tho land owners,
and should not delay materially.
Following tho staty eiiKlhOor's"
approval of tho district ouglnepra'
plans, tho plan of reclamation will
be submKled to tho laud owners with
a, proposal Tor a bond lasuo to curry
tho. work.
An nuthorltlvo source Is responsi
ble for tho Information that prelim
inary work nuch as gathering data,
suhmliislon of plans to tho state ou-
! ginecr. otc, will bo completed In tlmo
j to hold the boudlUR election this fall.
Wth tho hood Ishuu carried, It Is
expected 'that constriicton of tho res
ervoir and ditches can ho ntarted not
later than tho spring of next year.
