Delegation A dispatch from Wasb
Cannot ington to the Oregoniun
Agree. states that the terms oi a
number oi Federal offi
cers in Oregon are about to expire, and
a few such have already run beyond
their four-year limit, but there is little
promise of new appointments in the
near future. Tomorrow the terms of
United States Marshal Zoeth Houser,
John Hall, U. 8. Attorney j and 0. Sum
mers, appraiser of merchandise, at Port
land will expire, as will the terms of
Register Charles 8. Moores, at Oregon
Oity, and Register E. W. liartlett at
Latirande. The delegation, however,
is not ready to fill any of these places.
Shortly the terms of Collector of Cus
toms I. L, Pattersou at Portland, and
John Fox, Astoria; Postmaster A. B.
Croasman and Revenue Collector
Dunne at Portland, and almost all land
officers will also expire. Most of the
present officers were appointed on rec
ommendation of McBride, when he was
the sole senator, and are, therefore un
satisfactory to Senator Simon. He,
however, will not take up these cases
. until the President "gets the two Ore
gon senators together," as he has re
peatedly assured Mr. Simon he would
do. The nomination of Ueorge W. Bi
bee as receiver of the Oregon City land
office, is likely to come to the senate
any day, hut early confirmation is no.
looked for, as Senator Simon is not t.t
isfied with the appointment. The term
of Postmaster Potter at Baker City is
about to expire, and both senators have
expressed a willingness to defer to Ren-
resentative Moody in this appointment
and early action is expected. The ap
pointment of the register at the Burns
land office, to succeed Hayes, removed,
threatens to be hung up for some time,
as Senator Simon is waiting on the pres
ident in this case. Among other things,
Senator Mitchell is reported to have
said : "So far as I am concerned, I fa

Much, land chamber of commerce in
reply to its memorial relating
to the improvement of the Columbia
river at The Dalles and Celilo, the up
per river and its mouth, says the aggre
gate appropriation which it demands at
once would be $7,000,000. "It is not
likely that the rivers and harbors com
mittee will aspropriate more than $20,
000,000 or $25,000,000 to be available at
once," said be, while it may authorize
contracts to the amount of $40,000,000 or
more. The chamber, in asking for an
immediate appropriation of this large
sum, has set the delegation a rather
hard task. It asks for a very large pro
oortion of the entire amount to be ap
propriated by the bill, much more- than
could possibly be Becure. Mr. Tongue
corsiders it dangerous to ask for such a
