WILSON HOME MONDAY.
, WASHINGTON, D. C, Fob. 20.
The steamer George Washington on
which President Wilson is sailing for
America, will arrive next Monday, ac
cordjng'to a special dispatch re
ceived from the vessel today,
Director It. E. Bradbury today pre
sents for the consideration Of the
stockholders of tho Klamath Irriga
tion District certain fncts that are
quite Interesting. In view of the
statements made by Mr. Offield. We
ask the readers .to compare them
with those presented to you by Mr.
Oflleld. Mr. Bradbury Is backing up
ovory statement he makes with rec
ords, indlsputablo because they, are
olDclal. He Is not depending on per
sonalltles or time-worn appellations
about agitators and tho like. He
realizes that vast property rights be
longing to the land owners of this
community are at stake, and he Is
asking you to consider these matters
as business men, not on sentiment or
aggravated feelings. His stand Is ad
mirable, and shows him to bo a man
eminently deserving of tho attention
tho Importance of the subjects he pre
sents to you warrants.
To tho Voters and Wuter Users of the
Klamuth Irrigation District:
In tho nrgument submitted by 0.
W. Offlcld, which accompanies tbo
question you nre asked to vote on,
Mr. Omold makes statements which
arc misleading and not in accordance
with the records and data which he
It was my understanding that ar
guments wore to bo presented by Mr.
omold and myself, setting forth' tho
reasons why the district should or
should not Join -with the Water
Users to determine the question at
Issue. I wish It distinctly under
stood that tho question Is not merely
a nmerenco oi opinion Deiwoen Air.
Oflleld and myself, but ono that af
fects the property rights and finan
cial liability of every land owner of
Mr. Oflleld has a right to hold an
opinion which Is different than mliro,
nnd to present the same In his argu
ment, but I do li ot grant him the
privilege or right to misstate matters
that nro of record.
That you may Judge for yourselves
tho nccurncy of some of his state
ments, tho following extracts from
his urgument nro submitted: "The
proposition was fully presented to
tho stockholders by Mr. A., E. Elder
In tho Klamath Record of May 24,
1918, and a copy of this paper was
mailed to each voter, togother with
a copy of tho proposed contract be-i
twoon tho government und the dis
trict immediately preceding tho elec
tion." Tho election ot this contract was
hold April 13, 19 IS. Noto tho date
Mr. Elder's artlclo was. published.
His second reasen: "Mr. Bradbury
represented the Water Users when
tho contract between tho Secretary of
Interior and tho California-Oregon
Power company was mndo." This
statement is entirely untrue, as the
records of tho Wator Users will show.
Neither myself nor tho directors of
tho Water Users hud any part what
ever In drawing-this contract, which
was made and signed iu Washington,
D. a, February 24. 1917.
In his fourth reason ho states: "In
my opinion the most urgent .-.ml vital
thing now boforo the Irrigation dis
trict Is to procure thcroloaso of tho
mortgages hold by tho government
against tho lands of tho Water Users.
Thero Is a plan- alrondy worked out

Interests In tho Ankeny canal, and
other features of the district, and
iioin opinions which differ from Mr.
Oftleld's opinion, he appeals to you to
sustain him, and launches forth in an n
