Legislature Will Have Bill (or Ad
ministrative Water System.
A bill will be presented to the
Oregon legislature this winter asking
for an administrative water system
In this state. This was assured yes
terday at an extended conference
between the members of the Oregon
Conservation Commission and the
various water users of the state.
The proposed law will be modelled
after that in force inWyomtng.where
water rights are adjudicated and
determined by a state board of con
trol and regulated by the same
authority. In the operaton of auch
a law, vested rights already adjudi
cated by the courts, will not be dis
turbed. Under the Wyoming law the state
has a board of control by which
water rights are established and reg
ulated. This board consists of five
members appointed by the governor.
Appointees on the board must first
have passed an examination con
ducted by the State Engineer before
becoming eligible to serve. When the
board has adjusted the rights of con
flicting Interests of the water supply
In any stream the party dissatisfied
with the adjublrcen. has the right
within 60 days to appeal from the
decision of the board to the courts.
The expense of such an adminis
tration of the yater system of tbU
state is between $20,000 and $25,
000, while the service concerned not
less than 20,000 consumers. Under
the operaton ol the Wyoming law the
longest time required for the adjust
ment of any controversy respecting
the appropriation of water from a
stream was only 18 months, while the
system gave very general satisfaction,
as was evidence"! from the fact that
only Infrequently were appeals taken
by either of the rival interests to the

The streets of the city are now
muddy enough to convince most
any one that paving would be de

then go to the stores and buy the
goods. All up-to-date stores in the
city advertise in the Courier.

The general land office has made

rata share of expenses chargeable

the net proceeds $517,086.09, of
which amount the state ia entitled

The stores of Grants Pasa have
donned their holiday attire and one
would travel far without seeing a
more beautiful display than is pre
sented In the various windows. Ar
ticles suitable for Christmas gifts
are the rule and one Is reminded
that there is no longer any possible
excuse tor any one sending from
here to the larger cities for such
things. It Is an easy matter to se
lect gifts wnen there Is such a large
stock carried by our merchants.
Supervisor M. J. Anderson of the
local forestry office, has volunteer

found In very few localities. There
are some not far from Grants Pass

set them out Mr. Anderson will see
that they are brought in.
