were somewhat retieeat, they stated
the site for the reservoir bad bees

As projected the reservoir would
cover la&d oa both sides of the Mal
heur river, taking la a strip about 45
miles long by 30 in width. It would
cover alt the land oa Dead Ox flat, as
far back as the second bench from the
river, and tho Moore Hollow.
The reservoir would catch all- the
drainage from Malheur lake and the
Dams and Harney lake country. The
surveyors, gave out the Information
that tho work would bo taken up by

The importance of such a reservoir
and its canals con scarcely be com
