Lifetime Friend Presents Appreciation
of Work of Charles William Mallett
By Judge Casius H. Brown
Charles William Mallett was born
In Lor, Penobscot County, Maine,
Decombor 30, 1846, and pnssod away
at Portland, Orogon, October 24,
1021. Ho was tho fourth son ot
William and Sally (Merrill) Mallett.
Tho Mallotts nnd Merrills woro of
old Colonial stock, both families
moving from wostorn to eastern
Mnlno about 1827, horo his grand
father Mallett was glvon largo grant
of land by tho stato as compensa
tion for building roads' and mills.
Ills father, also, was oxtonslvoly on
gaged In building roads and in lum
bering. Aftor attaining manhood, Mr.
Mallett followed lumborlng princi
pally with tho oxccptlon ot ono sum
mor spont on tho coast ot Mnlno,
and ono season ontho Banks of Now
Foundland, cod-fishing. In 1873 ho
went to California whoro ho ongag
od In lumbering nnd mining, later
going to Novada. Thoro, In October
of 1878, ho was married to Miss
Mary Barrett, a nativo ot California,
whoso paronts woro natives of Malno
and pioneers ot California. To this
union ton children woro born; Al
bert, Pansy, Howard, Harold, Stan
loy, nnd Mary, living horo, Isabollo
at Fall City, Washington, Allco at
Jackson, Michigan, Mrs. P. W.
Cnmpboll, ot Portland, Oregon, and
Vivian, who passed away July ot
tho prosont yoar. Ho also lonvov
throo grandchlldren: Btauloy Mal
eott, Jr. and Donald and Philip
Cnmpboll ; also two slstors, Mrs.
Ruth Brown of Wtlltamsport, Penn
sylvania, and Miss Lonora T. Mallett
of Ontario, Orogon. Tho lator with
all tho children except Allco, who
was unablo to attond, woro prosont
with Mrs. Mallett at tho funeral.
Aftor his marrlago ho followod
farming In Mason Valloy until In tho
spring ot 1881, In company with I.
II. Adams aud W. R. Loo, ho camo
to Mainour Valloy whoro ho located
nnd spent tho remainder ot his llfo.
With Messrs. I. II. Adams and W.
It. Loo, ho mado tho original loca
tion ot tho Novada Ditch, July 12,
1881. IIo was ono of tho Incorpora
tors ot tho Novada Ditch Co., and
almost continuously a director. For
a numbor ot yoars ho was Prosldont
ot tho company, and nlwaya tho most
ardont dofondor ot Its rights.
Noxt attar his family, his groat
objoct In Ufa was to boo tho Mat
hour Valloy Irrigated, and to that
ond ho dovotod all his onorglos, Ho
was ono of tho foremost workors
for tho Warmsprtngs Hosorvolr, and
for Oovornmont aid. in onuonvor
to obtain such ho mado two trips to
Washington D. C. Ono In company
with Col. C. E. S. Wood ot Port
land, and ono with Judgo Dalton
Biggs ot Ontario. Ho was ably as
sisted by Judgo Will R. King, form
erly a rosldont ot Malheur County,
now llvldg in Washington D. C.
Through titer local opposition of poo
plo who woro In favor of tho con
struction ot tho Rcsorvolr by private
capital, ho was dofoatod In socurlng
Oovornmont aid whon It was almost
within irrasp. It was characteristic
of Mr. Mallett to look Into tho fu-
tura: to weigh an Issuo in Its per
manent benotlt or harm; to consider
whother tho generations to como
would profit by acts portormod In
tho prosont. Thoroforo, Instead of
hastening a projoct by any moans
available, ha desired to holp estab
lish an Irrigation system wiiicn
would not ovorwholm with a burdon
ot taxation the people who would
sook homos In tho Malheur Valloy.
His own homo was established, his
own Irrigation systom developed,
henca wo know his motive was
wholly unselfish. His co-workers in
this enterprise reaitzeu tuat tno ulti
mate Kood ot many, not tho Immed
iate profit ot a fow, was tho ond ho
sought, and toward this ho bont bis
untiring energies, That tho Warm-
springs Proloct was constructed by
moans ot private capuai insieaa or
by an efficient, oconomlo nnd Just
moans, as would havo been the caso
had Government old been accepted,
was ever a matter of deop regrot to
Mr. Mallett. Tho disappointment In
the falluro of an issuo which had
received his earnest consideration
for moro than a quarter of a cen
tury, added to tho weight ot busi
ness cares, undormlned his onre
rugged health so greatly that ho
had not the powor to rally from tho
Bhock ot his son's death.
