Three Thousand Sheep are Re
ported to Have Been Slaught
ered In Lake County Recently
John T. Whistler, of the United States
geological survey, in charge of the rec
lamation services in Oregon, has made
a favorable report to the secretary of
the Interior upon the Bntter creek
irrigation scheme. He has so presented
it to the authorities that Chief Engineer
Newell, in making his report lo Con
gress, places the Butter creek project
the most feasible in Oregon.
Speaking of the work in Oregon Mr.
Newell said as follows.
"In Oregon there are three projects
bich we have been studying with care.
We have been examining the whole
state, and while thos three are perhaps
not the best, tbey have attractive points.
We started oat to see if we could take
ont the Snake river and bricg it along
into Oregon, but it was found a canal
could not be brought out there. The
next question was whether tho Umatilla,
which flows by Pendleton, could be
brought out and stored in the Butter
creek region. It ia apparent that we
van there make a retervoir not a very
good rest voir, but we can probably store
and utilize water there for the recla
mation of 50 000 or 60,000 acres. This
I all good land mad the extut of the
irrigation it limited only' by the water
supply, and we roughly estimate that
we can put water on to the land at a
cost of from $10 to (15 per acre. J
"The second project is in the ex
treme eastern part of the state in the
Boiee valley, where the waters of the
Malheur and its tributaries may be
stored and used in the vicinity of Vale
and Ontario, where there are 40, 60, or
100,000 acrea, mainly public land.
"The third is the Silver river which
flows out into Malheur lake. There are
broad marshes around the lake which
are now used for cutting bay, and we
propose to take some water without in
juring those hay lands, if possible, store
it and attempt to develop that country
who will make a thorough investigation
of the affair.
While only a meager account of the
killing can be had at this time enough
has been learned that the killing was
done by five masked men and certain
parties are suspected and startling
disclosures are expected to take place
in the near future. -
The cause for the killing is attributed
to the fact that the sheep were on range
used by cattlemen.
While the amount of sheep reported
killed may be overestimated it is a hard
loss to Mr. McKune and he . will leave
nothing undone to hunt down the
parties -who did the killing.

SILVER MEDAL CONTEST
Good Showing In Morrow.
The sheriff sold the following: parcels
of property last Saturday for delinquent
taxes for the year 1902 :
A. G. Jennings WJ NE and W
&Ei, Sec. jo, T. 2 8. R. 23 E; sold to
G. W. Dykstra for $7.99 and costs,
taking a certificate of sale at the rate of
six per cent per annum.
J. M. Conoway Lot 9, in block 11,
Mt. Vernon addition to Heppner; sold
to G. W. DykBtra for 79 cents and costs,
at six er cent interest. "
Isaac Hinkle W XE, Z XW,
Section 35, T. 1, 8. R. 29 E; sold to
W. L. Smith for fi.7o and costs at six
per cent interest.
A. G. JenningBNW section 30, T.
2 S. R. 23 E ; sold to A. Rood for $3.32
and costs, at six per cent interest.
It will be observed that the owners of
the land sold when redeeming the same
will have to pay only six per cen in
tent on the purchase price. In nearly
all the other counties of the state the
rate of interest baa ran all the way from
six to 1000 per cent. -
Out of about $63,000 charged against
the aher;ff on the 1902 tax roll tor col
lection all have now bee-n collected ex
cept $20.82 for which the above property
was sold. Lake is the only other county
in the state of Oregon that can beat
this record for tax collecting. Lake
has every cent collected on the 1902
roll. When compared with most of the
other counties, which have from one to
several columns of delinquents on the
tax roll, this ia an excellent showing.
