JOHN T. WHISTLER MAKES AUTHORITATIVE STATEMENT. Two Years Constant and- Systematic Search Fulls to Locate a Reservoir That Will Hold Water Entire Ils-' trlct Is Underlaid With Sand John Day Project Is Not Feasible Of floe at Pendleton Will Not Be Abandon ed Yet for Some Time Mr. Whist ler to Remain Here During the Winter. After nearly two years of constant and systematic Investigation on the Echo government irrigation reaerva tlon, it la now almost certain that the project will be abandoned, because of the absence of suitable reservoir sites In the entire district When asked about the status of the work of the reclamation bureau In Umatilla county, John T. Whistler said to the East Oregontan today: "Since the recommended abandon ment of the once proposed reservoir site In the Butter creek country, the government has had a small recon noisance party out all summer work ing In this county, or more properly speaking, In the basin of the Umatilla river, and the exploration of the ba sin has been, from the standpoint of the reclamation bureau, ' absolutely thorough, i "This reconnolssance party has ex amined In detail every little branch of the Umatilla river and of Butter creek as well, and - in - addition-- haa ' thoroughly Investigated the poslblllty -of diverting the waters of the John Day to Umatilla lands. "No site for a reservoir has been found anywhere In the Umatilla ba sin. A depression has been noted In the region north of the old aban doned site, which will be examined further, but It Is feared that even if It proves to be of sufficient slxe, that test pits will show It underlaid with a stratum that will disqualify the location. Just as the other site wan ; disqualified. John Da Not Feasible. 1 "The examination of the John Day region has been equally thorough, and Its has failed to disclose any no ticeable means or way of diverting water to any extent In Its upper por tions. As the Investigation proceeds down the John Day there nre fewer and fewer indications of the practica bility of either diversion or storage. This concluding work, In the lower portion of the John Day basin, will be finish this month, , Ono Last Test to He Mude. "Upon the completion of the John Day survey the party nt work there will be brought back Into this county for further Investigation of the char acter of the foundation and material underlying the depression referred to earlier as a possible site for a reser voir near the old abandoned site. "I wish to be quoted," said Mr. WhlBtler with emphasis, "as calling the especial attention of the people . to the failure of these various survey and Investigations to find any reser- ' voir sites In the Umatilla basin, and I urge the people, as I have always urged them, not to be misled by rep resentations which are often misrep resentations, and by too much opti mum. atM "A great many people located and Invested under the reservoir site abandoned and lost out, against my advice and admonition. If the people will listen to me now, they will not repeat the error, and neither will any 'fresh fish' be caught In the same manner." "Does this virtual wlndup o( the work In this district mean the aban donment of Pendleton as the Oregon headquarters of the reclamation bu reau work?" "The main portion of the office force here has been already instruct ed to go to Salt Lake City soon, but I have requested to be allowed to remain here during the winter to hake or finish the computations and estimates upon which we shall begin soon, and the office here will not be abandoned."
