Deputy District Attorney ChaTles J.
Ferguson late yesterday got all the
papers In shape for the proponents of
tbe planned Horesfly Irrigation dis
trict, and took them before County
Judgo Will S. Worden and County
Commissioners Sam T. Summers and
duy Merrill, who approved them offi
cially. The vote on tho question of the
proposed district will be held Tues

get water from the Horsely dam to
Irrlgato part of tbe Yonna, Laagell
and Lost River valleys, wbtcb havo
so long been trying to get the gov-
trnmont to help tbem.
Upon the government falling to
undertake the matter, tbe land own-
era planned their own district under
tho law created by the last Oregon
legislature, which permits landowners
to establish their own Irrigation dis
trict. About 80,000 acres would be irri
gated by tho proposed district, and it
is expected that owners ot all this
land will voto bonds o get water In
tho Bonani' section. They figure that
tho cost will bo about $80 per acre,
and that this is about 60 per cent of
