Commlaaioner Kinney, Kelly and

neer make a survey of the whole situ
ation at tbe Oregon City locks aad pre
pare a plan for a. rack ayatem extend
ing from Moore 'a Island or Tail-race
Channel to the manland near the aul-
phlte mill of tbe Willamette Paper A
Pulp Company. i ,
- Tbe rack ayatem plan la forth pur
pose of keeping aalmon from getting
up Into tha tall races and to guide them
to the entrance of the flab Udder or
ladders. Tbe State Engineer la also
to prepare a plan for another fish lad
der to be so located that Ita entrance
will be at tbe moat northerly point of
Moore's. Island, near the outside or
up-stream end of the racking ayatem.
In the past It baa been contended
that during the extreme low-water per
iod of the year aalmon coming to the
Oregon City Falls do not go over the
falls, but head up Into the arm of the
rtverTollowIng the tailracea at the
Willamette Paper tt Pulp Company
plant. Here they are said to remain
until worn out or taken by local fish
ermen. All interested in the fishing
industry, however, are not agreed on
tbla point. Some contend that they
will back out or go farther up the
stream, where they will find the pres
ent entrance to the ladder, and that
the few fish that remain in the tail
racea are but stragglers. v
The new plana to be prepared will
make ample provision for the accom
modation of all the aalmon that man
age to reach the lock a at Oregon City.
It la contended that they are becoming
fewer in number each year and there
la aome wonder that there ahould be
any aalmon at tbe dam, for, once en
tering the mouth of the Columbia
River, the aalmon haa to fight for lta
life all the distance down the Colum
bia to the mouth of Willamette and
from the Willamette up to the locks.
Along this distance there are aelna
and fish wells and traps and hooks of
every conceivable form and device to
catch the aalmon on the way to the
spawning ground. The understanding
is that tbe engineer will have hla
plana ready next September. .

ALLIES PASS VOOL
: BILL III SOIAIE
INSURGENTS AND ' DEMOCRATS
PUT THROUGH COMPRO-A"
i. ; . i - "
Doubt as to What Course Democrat
In House Will Take ' en -
Bin La Follett Offer ' '
. Substitute.. ... , . .
WASHINGTON. D. O. July 27. A
compromise wool bill, offered by Sen
ator La Follette, of Wisconsin, mod
ification of both bis own and the
House bill, was passed by the Senate,
48 to 32, through the union of Demo- '
crate and Republican insurgents.
On this middle ground the Demo- .
crata, having secured a record vote
on tbe original Underwood bill. Joined
with the Insurgent forces. The meas
ure adopted reducea the raw wool
duty to IS per cent ad valorem, and
correspondingly reduces the duties on'
woolen articles. . i - . t- .
There is aome doubt as to what
course the House Democrats wilt pur
sue with regard to tbe compromise
bill. House Leader Underwood several
days ago served notice that the House
would not accept the original La Fol
lette bill. " .
Committee Work Declined.
Tbe "regular Republican members
of the Senate Finance Committee, an ¬
nouncing that because of the carry
ing oat of the , Democratic insurgent
Republican program, they would re
fuse to serve on the Conference Com
mittee between the two Houses.
"The situation Is entirely to our
liking," said Chairman Penrose, of the
Finance Committee. "Wa are aatlafled
that tbe President will veto any bill
than can be sent to him within the
rang prescribed, and we shall pro
ceed next Winter with whatever tariff
revision may be necessary. Then we ,
shall have the Tariff Board's report '
and can work Intelligently.'' .-.
Although Prealdent Taft has made
no definite utterance to that effect.
It has been strongly Intimated at the
White House from time to time that he
might feel called on to veto a wool
tariff bill paaaed In advance of a re
port on that schedule from tbe Tariff
Board.-. . . '
Democrat Join La Follette. ' '
The iutaaaxe- of. the bill eaane after
a defeat of the Underwood House bill. -
44 to 36 on almost a party vote, and
after the original La Follette substi
tute had been voted down with only .
the Republican Insurgents In Its fa
vor. ' .'
Having secured a vote on the Un
derwood bill a paaaed by the House,
tbe Democrats then supported a mo
tion made by Senator La Follette to
reconsider the vote by which their -'
bill waa defeated.
As soon as the motion to reconsider
bad been carried. La Follette offered
his compromise. '
La Follette. by 49 to 31, secured a .
reconsideration of the vote on the
House wool bill, the Democrats and
Insurgents Joining tn support of his
