Oram, into th. Act of March I 1ST. The Good Roads Campaign Whether or not the state legis lature provides Oregon with a plan for systematic highway con struction the Oregon Good Roads Association believes that during the last year more has been ac tually accomplished toward the permanent making of good roads than during any other period in, the state's history. This is be cause of the widespread convic tion which it has been possible to obtain that Oregon's first and greatest development need is good roads construction. One of the most intent factors for the dissemination of educa tional matter leading up to the general conviction of good roads needs has been the out-state pa pers (members of the Associa tion.) Discussions of the need of better built highways, and of the plan for securing them have, in the papers referred to. been full and free and frank and ef fective. The Oregon Good Roads Asso ciation does not intend to give up the fight for highway con struction whether the good roads laws as adopted by the legisla ture are satisfactory or not. The leaders of the organization be lieve that with the, help of the state press and progressive citi zenship unofficial promotion of the good roads cause will be ef fective and desirable either in conjunction with the enforce ment of such laws as may be passed, or if the laws are not passed. Locjting Up the Coal Fields The injustice of locking up Alaska s coal fields is seen in a recent report which shows that the northern territory bought a million dollars' worth of coal from the outside last year. Of this amount the mines of British Columbia furnish $700,000 worth Washington $82,000 worth and the rest came from other f laces And all the while there are vast storehouses of coal within the boundaries of Alaska, which dare not be touched. They are being "conserved" for the future; while the people who are pio neering must pay tribute in the way of duties to a foreign gov ernment. Coal customs paid by Alaskans last year amounted to $100,000. No other government in the world would treat its own sons as the United States is do ing in Alaska. Will Benefit Pacific Coast The designation of San Fran cisco as the place for holding the Panama International Exposi tion is of vast importance to the west By this action congress has focused the attention of the world on the Pacific coast for many years to come and the good work started by the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific exposition in 1909 will be carried forward. Many people who visit the 1915 fair will pass through the northwest coming or going. At the very outset the lumber interests of the northwest, and Washington in particular, will reap the benefit of business resulting from exten sive construction. NORTHWEST NOTES The Hill and Harriman lines will subscribe $1,000 each to the 1911 Rose Festival. President John F. Stevens of the North Bank announced the Hill sub scription this week and Harri man officials say the $1,000 for merly given will be forthcoming this season as usual. Both rail road systems are making great effort to handle an unusually heavy traffic during June, be-j cause of the wide advertising that will be given the Festival j and the large number of tourists ! attracted this way as a result. j Portland is joining with other cities of the coast in helping to relieve the famine situation in China. Large quantities of food stuffs will be sent from that city to the sufferers, transportation companies having agreed to carry the supplies without charge. Central Oregon will hear the locomotive whistle for the first time this summer. Operation of the Oregon Trunk will probably be commenced to Madras early in March, and somewhat later the Deschutes Railroad will run trains to Redmond. These new lines will mark the beginning of a new era of settlement for the whole region east of the Cascade mountains. The formation of a -syndicate to clear logged-off lands of South west Washington and place them on the market, is a step tnat might be followed with profit on the other side of the Columbia river. These lands, once cleared, are among the most valuable for diversified farming, fruit grow ing and dairying. To put them to use is to make a great addi tion to the wealth of the state. A city of 2,000,000 people at Portland is included in the plan of Municipal Architect E. H. Bennett, who is mapping out a greater city, His project calls for the segregation of the various activities into districts and groups, and the beautification of the whole municipality. Pars, boulevards and better buildings are prominent features of the plan. Two additional salmon hatch eries on tne Lower Columbia river are provided for in the bill passed this week by the United States senate, appropriating $50, 000 for the purpose. If this measure passes the house it will mean a great deal to the salmon indus' ry of the Northwest, add ing largely to the wealth taken annually from the Coluumbia and its tributaries. This is farmers' week at the Oregon Agricultural College and there is a large attendance of those interested in agricultural problems. Lectures and demon strations of the greatest value to farmers are being given. These cover stock-raising, dairying, hor ticulture, intensive farming, and practically every branch of the industry. The attendance is much larger than during the special short courses of former years and great interest is shown by farmers from all parts of the state. W. C. T. U. WILL HONOR FRANCES E.

Hellliron BIG POWER PLANT STILL A MYSTERY For several month the develop ment of tt very lare power plant on the Kliekltat river, near (11m wood, ha I evn keeping reldelita of that country and White Salmon buy KUexxiiiK what It I to be ued for. The point where the company I tie veloplnii the plant kIvch It an almoxt lieer fall of 700 feet, and the fact that no one In the neighborhood ha leen able to dlc.)ver what the power I Intended for, ha given the art-lie of the work the name of Camp Mystery. i Many have leen the speculation In- duln'l In by thone who know of the operation, and tt ha lieen attribu ted to several big Interest, among them the Hill railroad. A history of the development of the plant, as told by the H 1111 m correspondent of the OreKontnn, Is a follows: "In the fall of l'.Wil thl company was formed by Win. It. King, engi neer, J. H. Hanson and other, and Incorporated under the laws of Ore gon, with a capitalization of $7.V),. 000. The project was launched os tensibly to Irrigate the table lauds In the vicinity of (ilenwood and to reclaim a large area In the Cama Prairie region, but It I asserted that the appropriation of the water Is for power purposes only. Water Is to lie diverted from the Kliekltat river Inflow the mouth of Itlg Muddy river, which can be carried upon the lands by gravity Mow, affording excellent opportunities for pitwer develop ment. "From reliable authority it Is learned that by summer 150 men will be employed by the company on the head works and Hume of seven miles. The canyon walls of the Klickitat are steep where the headgate for diver sion I located, making It necessary to Hume the water along this dis tance until the level of the adjacent country is reached. Here, it Is stated, an electric plant of 40,000 homhpower will lie Installed. "It Is a known fact that the Hill Interest and others have acquired large tracts of timber In the vicinity of the projebt now under construc tion, but it Is also asserted that the Klickitat Development Company will.expend $J.0OO,0O0 In an Irrigation ami power project for their own use, the purpose of which has not leen made known." GOVERNMENT CREATES NEW FOREST SERVICE POSITION A new government position Is dis closed by the announcement by the I'. S Civil Servlc Commission ol an examination, w hich will be held Feb Si and 24 to find three grazing ex aminers for the Forest Service. The positions will pay a salary of $1,i1hi a year at entrance. The announcement specifies that the applicant must be men, at least twenty years old, and possessed of at least one year of technical train ing In specified botanical studies. The establishment of this position I said to le in line with the objects which the Department of Agriculture ha hail In view In It management of grazing on the National Forests, and to obtain scientific data. The proposal to appoint specialists who are both thoroughly trained botanists and men of practical ex-is-rience In range matters Indicates recognition of the fact that to attain the highest point of range produc tivity the best scientific knowledge must be applied to the study of the problems of forage production and utilization. As stock graze on the range, the effect on the different kinds of vegetation differs both with Its palatabllity or unpalatabillty or with Its capacity to produce seed, Its time of seeding. Its resistance to trampling. Its manner of growth, and many other elemehts. What Is aimed at now Is nothing less than to find out all the things on which depend the production of the largest amount of beef, mutton, wool, and hides on a given area. This Involves, learning how both to restrict and to time the grazing so as not to Interfere with the repro ductlon of the most valuable ele meiits In the forage crop, how to prevent unnecessary loss to feed through trampling ud In other ways, how to exterminate poison ous plant from the range, how to prevent the loss of forage which re sult from the multiplication of prai rie dogs and gophers, whether It Is practicable to Introduce new forage plants hy direct seeding, and many other matters It I to look Into such matters that the grazing exam iner are to be appolnt'-it.
