Representative P. .1. Gallagher of this
district is the author of measure designed
to solve the problem of financing new Irrl
nation projects in Oregon arhich will com
mend itself to the residents of this lection,
where the potential wealth of the countrj
is as useless today as it w;is when Columbus
discovered America.
Under the prorisions of Mr. Gallagher h
plan which, howerer, is uol s new one to
Western legislatures, the State thru i prop
erlv constituted board, would, alter B thoro
examination of the proposed Irrigation dis
triet. guarantee the interest and principal
of the bonds of the district to the purchasers.
The Stati- board WOUld have the DOWer ti
compel the levying of necessary taxes to
meet these obligations and enforcement
would be secured by tirst right of foreelos

While there are many admirable feat

Eastern Oregon, it is almost beyond belief
that the present legislature will take the
plunge In State socialism which this nieas

such a law will require enormous work in
lining up the Multomah delegation, as well
as the lawmakers from the timbered count

Hut the greatest difficulty which the
bill will encounter will be due to fault

George III.
All these things have come about be
cause of the genius of the American people
for self government, and while the leaders
to a large degree were of Anglo-Saxon lenl
