Major J.C#MacDonald,
Comptroller of Water Rights,
Victoria, B*C#
Dear Mac*
1 hate again been called Into discussion in regards
tc the later situation at the Centre,
Mr* Warren wae expected to come to the Centre* The
Users got together In a meeting -I wars not present -.
it was decided to again approach Warren with the object cf
coming to some arrangement for 3 or 4 years.
A committee was appointed consisting of dee,Aberdeen, "/enables
and myself for the purpose of meeting barren bgrtnot to take the
place of the Water Users Committee*
Last Monday we met Warren*
Mr* Warren stated that a Water District would mot be
considered by him until the question of appurtenance Is settled.
We left him- with the clear understanding that he would
agree to allow us to audit the Water bofeks, and to get out statements
of Rceeiptd and expenditure etc*  The idea being that if it could
be shown that the Company statements were correct we as a committee
would try to work out an arr angement that could be put over.
Yesterday Mr* Coe advised Mr* Logie that arrangements
had been made with Mr Jakeon of Kelowna to carry out the audit for tb
the committee and wanted to know when it would be convenient,
Mr* Logic's reply was that before any audit was male the Users
must first sign the proposed agreement* His understanding being
that the granting of the audit was pafct of the agreement and
that the agreement must be signed first*
§3B   This position makes it Impossible tc get anywhere.
Another bit of information that might interest you*
Warren stated that he would have nothing to do with Norris or
the Water Rights Branch*  He told the four of us what he thought of
Norris , yourself and the rest cf the members of the Department*
He says that you all treat thla question as a personal matter,
going as far as stating that you had told Craig that you were going
to force the formation of a water district, and would continue to
sake it difficult for the Company to op/erate.
Be was not even very kind to |t/ the Minister In his remarks* 2Pi3.5n.<7.os.3£

I am retailing all this gossip to you so that you may see how
impossible the situation is, and also the necessity of your office
in getting some information from the books of the Company*
I have just received a copy of Mr* Logic's letter to Mr* Coe
and will enclose a copy*
Yours truly,
£SL£X.

Dear Sir :-
In connection wi$rh our telephone conversation last night*
we submitted tc you an agreement that we were willing to enter into with
the water users* We have no knowledge that this agreement has been submitted
submitted to the Water Users or approved by them* that is the first
consideration. We are prepared to ge on and carry oujr our part of the
agreement when we have the assurance that the water users will carry
out their part of it*
We have made considerable concessions for something previously
agreed  to by the water users, but has not been carried out. Mr* Warren
went en and put in a Cam at a considerable expense and then we have to come
come beck once moreto get the water users to carry out the arrangement
then made,and until such time as therrejL  is some definite assurance
that good faith will be kept with us we are not prepalred to go on
and carry out any part cf our agreement only to be told,aa we have already si
state i to you, that the w^ter users had nojr approved of this arrangement*
That is the last word you heard from the writer as you were leaving the
other day*
Kindly have this agreement submitted to the water users and
let us have their decision in connection with same*
Yours truly,
{ signed)J.L*Logie Manager
The agreement mentioned above is an old one which could
not be agreed tc but which be  taken as a basis of discussion*
This jtfaji fact was spoken of at the time, and it is difficult to
understand how Mr* Logic could refer tc it as he does above* 1
