PURCHASED BY
PORTLAND MEN
f j
f ' T ? c
Portland, and twd Portland physi
cians, Robert II. Ellis and J. C.
Elliott King, aro associated in the
purchase of tho old McCornack
ranch of 8,000 acres, five or six
miles from this city on tho opposite
sldo of the Upper Lake, from the
nophowa and nieces of tho late E. P.
McCornack.
A large part of the purchase is
swamp land, known as the wocus
marsh, and its reclamation requires
extensive diking and draining. 'Dik
ing operations have been In progress
for the last year or two, under the
old ownership, and the new owners
havo purchased' the Klamath Queen,
tho dredger used In tho reclamation
work, and will carry out tho project,
which involves tho building of 'a
number of moro miles of levees and
drainage of the marsh by pumping.
The Portland people aro reportod
to havo paid in the neighborhood of
$100,000 for tho 8,000 acres, and It
is said to be a moderate price for the
land, which when reclaimed will be
ono of tho most fertile spots in tho
county. The new owners havo not
announced their intentions, but it Is
considered, unquestionable that they
have purchased the land for specu
lative purposes and will placo It on
tho market in small tracts as soon as
it is drained. A portion of the ranch
Is timbered, but the timber was sold
to the Klamath Lumber & Box com
pany by the former owners, and Is
being removed. The marsh acreage,
however, predominates.
The heirs of E. P. McCornack are
widely scattered, and having many
other interests, preferred to let tbV
land gov- ffiosowhowa-wiroos "wftl be
affixed to the deed when the nnal
Signatures . are obtained are .Robert,
