February 12-14 is the date set for
the 1914 meeting of the Oregon Irri
gatioa Congress, which will be held
in Portland at the I nperial Hotel
1 he executive committee is busy(
preparing a tentative program that
will be announced shortly.
It is planned to give a banquet
on the nig hf' of February ,1,2th for
the delegates, to the Congress in
celebration of , the effective work
done at the last Congress. This
banquet will be givn under the

About 40 organizations of water-

bodies are associated with the cong

It is expected that 2 no delegates

1 hat the Pacific Coast has ample
time to prepare for an ultimate influx
of European immigrants, is apparent
from reports received by the Oregon
Scate Immigration Commission,
This conclusion has been reached
by that office after making an ex
tensive investigation in co-operation
with ihe Oregon Development
League, of reported sales of thou
sands of steamship ticxets on the in
stallment plan to prospective immi
grants via the Panama Canal is with
out foundation. .
Rumors that a great flood of
European immigrants was to pour
upon the Pacific Coast as soon as
the Panama Canal was open,- .has
created great anxiety amongst civic
organizations. Tbe Oregon State
Immigration Commission lelt that if
such a throng was actually in, pros
pect, it was incumbent upon the
Commission to ascertain what pro
visions could be made for distri
bution of arriving aliens away from
the congested centers.
So far as a thorphgh investigation
could disclose, no steamship com
pany has yet quoted passengers
ratesfor immigrants via the canal,
and no such tickets are being sold
cither for cash or on the installment
plan. Persistance of th old rumors
caused this office to make such in
vestigations and the reports now in
hand from the American Consuls j
stationed at the important ports ol
Europe utterly discredit the rumors
