Decided to Be an Accretion to Minto's
Island Kefereo'a Final Report
Schuyler C. Spencer, of Portland, who
was apiK)luted referee 111 the Minto-Sav-ago
contest, involving a part of Minto
island, in the Willamette river, has lllcd
ins rejiori witn tlie Htato Ijind Jionnl at
The report states as (hidings of fact
that prior to 1887 a body of land began
to form on the north bank of Minto's
island, and that some ten years later the
owner, by contract, granted tho Balom
Water Company tho privilege of laying
its main pipes across tho lower end of
tho island and taking from tho island
sand and gravel ngcossary to construct n
reservoir or crib in tho river on tho
north side of the island.
Tho subsequent growth of tho land at
the ioint of junction with tho mainland,
with its extended length down tho river
and out from the Island, created un
eddy or reverse current to such an ex
tent as to effect tho water supply of the
city of Salem. To remedy tho trouble
the company obtained tno consent of
Mr. Minto to cut a ditch at tlie point of
Junction witli the mainland, in 181)4,
which has been recut year after year in
consequence of the winter filling. The
ditch is nbout 20 feet in length and sev
eral feet deep, so that steamers may
pass through it in ordinary high water
and land at the wharves at Salem.
Tho report continues, in substance:
That tho mado land was extcntion of the
island in tho direction of tlie 1 'oik county
side of the river, in which direction tho
Island as well as the main channel of
the river is and lias Ik'oii for inanv vears
That at tho time of tho tUlitii; of the
application to purchase this land there
was no law authorizing its sale, if it
had been the property of tho state.
That the application of Mark II. Sav
age, though in form tho application of
un individual, is the application of a
company or uirtncrship. and ihade in
tho interest of and for tho bouollt of the
company or partnership.
Based uou the (hidings of fact, Hef-
eree Hpincor round that John .Minto is
tho owner of Minto Island, and the land
In question is a propcriiccrotiou therete:
that tho state Is not the owner of the
land dci;crllHd in the application, and
that it is not subfect to tlie control and
sale of the state loard of land commis
sioners, as contended ; that the applica
tion to purchase said land is void, and
should be dismissed, for the reason that,
at tho time of filing of said application,
there was no law authorizing the sale
thereof by this bounl; that tho applica
tion to purchase is void, and should lie
dismissed, for the reason that said ap
plication was made by and (or the tone
