therefor. Roy K. Bishop was the only applicant who succeeded in passing the
examination and he was appointed to the place November 16, 1909.

Trustees of Law Library

The legislature of 1891 passed an act authorizing the establishment of a law
library in each county and the collection of a fee of one dollar for every case
filed in the superior court, to support such library. The supervisors of Orange
County objected to thus taxing the litigants for the benefit of the lawyers, so an
jynendment was introduced by Assemblyman C. S. ]\IcKelvey and passed by the
legislature of 1895, cutting out the fee. That amendment and the repeal of the
county ordinance establishing the library put a quietus on the appointment of
trustees for the next twelve years. In the legislature of 1907, Senator H. ]\I.
M'illis introduced an amendment to the original act, restoring the dollar fee on
court cases, which was adopted. Immediately the Orange County law library
was revived and trustees were appointed as before the interruption. There arc
three appointive members and two ex-ofiicio members, the latter Ijeing the superior
judge and the chairman of the board of supervisors. The appointive trustees from
the beginning and the time of service of each are as follows :

CHAPTER III

ORANGE COUNTY'S WATER SUPPLY AND WAY UTILIZED

It is generally understood that the original source of water supply for any
given territory is the rainfall precipitated upon the entire surface of such territory.
In a dry climate the rainfall is regarded as an asset that may be recorded and
l^roclaimed as one of the natural advantages of the locality. There is also an in-
direct benefit from the rainfall that surrounding sections derive from the under-
ground waters which are percolating through the gravel on their way from the
higher elevations to the sea. Such water may be brought to the surface by pump-
ing, or, on the lowlands near the ocean, it may be forced to the surface Idv the
pressure from the higher elevations, whenever a boring is made for an artesian
well.

The average annual rainfall at Orange for a third of a century has been
13.87 inches, the extremes being 5.32 inches in the winter of 1897-98 and over
three feet in the winter of 1883-84. This is probably as low an average as any-
where in the county, since Orange is situated in the middle of a plain near the
center of the county and the rainfall in the hills and mountains is greater than
on the plains below. In fact, the rainfall in the San Bernardino iMountains, where
