The United States Reclamation
Department has announced the com
pletion of the first unit of the Sun
nyHlde Irrigation project In theYakl
dib Valley. The system will sup
ply water to 11,690 acres next sea
son. There Is a charge against this
land of $52 per acre for construc
tructlon work, and 95 cents per acre
per year maintenance fee. The for
mer charge may be divided Into ten
equal payments, making the firts an
nual payment falling due March 1,
1909, and the susbaequeut payments
March 1 of each year.
It will be seen that Irrigation works
cost money. The government, unlike
private enterprises does not charge
Interest and does not look for a
profit on the money invested, yet set
tlors under this system will pay $52
n acre to get the water on the land
nd then an annual maintenance
fee. It Is believed that water can
be placed on the lands In this part of
the Rogue River Valley for $50 per
acre, with a small sum each year
for maintenance, and If this plan Is
carried out tor a sum no larger than
$50 our people will be very fortu
nate. No matter what the cost may
be It will be more than returned to
the farmer and orchardlst In the In
creased product of the fertile lands
of this section. Water must be
had, for our people are becoming
tired of wanting their time on the
few crops that can be grown without
water, and before another year want
to be shipping grain and bay Instead
of having It brought In from other
parts of the state. Irrigation will
bring this about.
The Washington Star has begun
to urge the changing of the Inaugu
ration of presidents, for the reason
that a storm generally vUlts the cap
ital city on March 4. The Star
takes up this question religiously
every four years, but for some rea
son or other the rhange Is not made.
The time favored is In April, as dur
ing that month Washington Is gen
erally at Its best. After a president
Is Inaugurated he generally favors
he postponing the Inauguration of
his successor for one month or more,
but the fellow who is waiting his
turn to alt In the White House Is
Just as willing, as a rule, to nave It
come a little earlier.
William Mack Is behind the bars
awaiting trial for the ahootlng of
Miles Carter. Mack has become
fully sobered and begin to realise
the enormity of his crime, for
which he saya the officials are to
blame for not enforclag the law pro
hibiting the sale of liquor. There
Is little doubt of the guilt of both
Mack and the officials.
The shooting of Miles Carter Is the
direct result of tho failure to enforce
the prohibition law. William Mack
had beeu buying and consuming
liquor all the evening and when
erased with liquor which had been Il
legally sold to him fired the shot
which sent Miles Carter to death
and plawd himself rn the road to
