Dear Sir:
Your favor of the 31st ult. to hand, together
with cheque for the sum of $  1170.
In looking into the matter in regard to the
credit for # 30*00 I find that you were charged only
# 5*50 for the first aore foot, and then the penalties
that you i  ihl |ie mil I I I fti'l I'm pBV inn I nlilnil which amounted
to $ 70.00^f€aving a credit tinder thoseetnifljtions of $  30.
I took up the question with the late Mr* Ce<$nitoe
aeJKf whether or not the Rainbow Ranche came under theNJjehd
erf^the Board of Investigation^ ruling. Mr. Cochrane to^fcd\
me  it did not.  I also took up that question with Mr. Warren
'which was discussed in your presence, and Mr. Warren said
he did not consider that you did, but that it was an entirely
separate and distinct water contract and one which they are
willing to live up to, irrespective of what has been done jf
will be done in the future in connection with rates
cK&s^ed to the water users.
Ware~"EKe''cdSpaliy"'W' IakerTR8T3atter to the Courts,
which was their intention had it not been for the demise of
the late Mr. Cochrane, there is no question as to what would
have been the final outcome in the Courts, which would be
beyond any question whatever, a much higher rate. Had the
Board given their decision according to the Water Act the
amount would have been greatly in excess of what was the
arrangement made by contract, and if that is abSdgated by
the government the Irrigation Coapany will simply then fall
back on the terms of the Water Act, and under it the $6.00
an acre foot rate cannot be maintained, but it would be very
much higher.
The Company would prefer that matters be lett alone
in the meantime, but if they wish that settled for good and
all, it is coming, and when the Court is called upon to O GEORGE   WILKIE
V1CE-PRE8.

establish the rate, it will be rather a surprise to them.
The Company's legal positi6n is beyond any question and
it is only a natter of having to take the proper steps to
enforce it.
Your domestic water rates are paid up to the
31st of March last.
Yours truly,
Okanagan Centre Irrigations,Power Cs«Ltd.
