representing the Water Users' Asso

project, is in Washington in confer
ence with the reclamation service
and the secretary of the interior, in
the hope of securing a modification
of the order imposing a charge for
water right. Water rights at Klam
ath have been fixed at $30 per acre,
divided into 10 equal payments. Ho
wants the department to make the
first payment $1 or $1.25 per acre
and gradually Increase the amount
so that the last payment will bring
the total to $30. Smith says settlers
will have difficulty In paying $3 por
acre the first year.
After consultation with officials of
the reclamation Bervice, Representa

der the proposed Malheur irrigation
project, informing them that tin

will promptly get together and in

people themselves to say whether or
not It shall be built now or later.
