FIVE PLANS CHOSEN
First 'Irrigation Work to Be
Done by "Government.
IT WILL COST SEVEN MILLIONS
Oregon Jfot Aongr States Benefited,

Dane If Proved Practicable.
"WASHINGTON. March 13. Secretary
Hitchcock, of the Interior Department,
has Granted authority for the acquisition
of necessary .property, rights of way. etc.,
prior to the construction of irrigation
works in Ave. localities. These projects
are: "Wyoming, Sweetwater dam; Mon
tana, Milk River; Colorado, Gunnison tun
nel: Nevada, Truckee; Arizona, Salt
These projects are estimated to cost
$7,000,000, and will provide for the irriga
tion of about 000,000 acres of arid land. In
addition thereto the Gray Bull reservoir
project is to be taken up Immediately.
The construction remains subject to the
possibility xof obtaining: the necessary
rlghta and the adjustment of private
claims In such manner as to comply with
the act approved June 17,'l02.
The authority granted relates to the
projects upon which the examinations
have been made in sufficient detail to Jus
tify estimates 'Of cost and results. Sev
eral others in other states are as well ad
vanced as regards .Investigation, and it.
Is expected that further recommendations
cm soon be made.
The Secretary has also authorized the
expenditure during the present calendar
year of " $450,000 on surveys, borings for
foundations and other examinations,
which wlil be carried on In all ot the
states and territories included within the
provisions of the law.
DOES XOT PREJUDICE OREGON.
Action of Hitchcock Allows Butler
Creole Survey to Continue.
OREGONIAN NEV.S BUREAU, Wash
ington, March 13. The announcement to
day that Secretary Hitchcock has decided
to bagtn the construction of National irri
gation works in Wyoming, Montana, Ne
vada. Arizona and Colorado does not
prejudice the project which Is to be car
ried out on Butter Creek, Oregon. The
five projects referred to are those that
have been under investigation by the Geo
logical Survey anywhere from three to 12
years, and arc the ones on which the
most detailed examinations have been
made. But in no case have the examina
tions been completed nor are plans ready
for advertisement Today's announce
ment means that the department will lm
mediately turn Its attention toward ac
quiring full title to the reservoir sites jm&
.rights of way of canals by purchase or
condemnation, ..wherever private owner
ship conflicts with the proposed, work,
,and If In any instance the title cannot be
obtained the project will be abandoned.
The Geological Survey, as a result. ot for
mer study of these several locallties,?now
lias rough plans for reservoirs and canals.
and final plans will be hastened and con
As heretofore stated, the Geological Sur
vey has two experts now making surveys
and examinations on Butter Creek, and a
third will soon Join them. These examina
tions will be final, and, when their report
is made and a project is roughly outlined.
provided no unforeseen obstacles arise to
show the project Impracticable, this work
will be added to the approved list and
steps be taken looking to construction.
Hydrographer Newell roughly estimates
that It will cost $7,000,000 to construct the
five projects designated by the Secretary.
while the reclamation fund at this time
aggregates about .$10,000,000, thus leaving
$3,000,000 available for other projects that
may be approved later. Furthermore, tho
fund Is constantly growing, so there will
be no lack of funds with which to com
mence work on Butter Creek, when the
plans are finally formulated. Part of the
funds to be used In other states are thore
derived from sales of Oregon lands, but
a major portion of the Oregon fund for the
past 2& years romalns to Its credit and Is
more than enough to. build the favored
irrigation system in that state.
The report of the Oregon irrigation com
mittee recently forwarded to the Secre
tary of Agriculturo finally found Its way
to Mr. NoweU, and has been by him re
ferred to the field officers In Oregon. He
was somewhat surprised that the com
mittee made no recommendation, and has
therefore asked tly field officers to exam
lne all tho projects named, as they can
conveniently reach them. The field force

NEGOTIATIONS CALLED OFF.
Trainmen at St. Panl Conference

ST. PAUL, March 13. All negotiations
between the various committees of rail
way trainmen, and the four companies
looking to an agreement on the wage
question were called oft today. The call
ing off of the negotiations with the com
panies does not necessarily mean that,
there has been a dispute, but it does, mean
that the committees iave used all the

The rock on which tho split occurred
was that concerning the running of double-header
trains. Neither the Great
Northern, Northern Pacific, Omaha or
Great Western will grant the terms asked
by the men. The committees, on the other
hand, had no 'authority to accept the
compromise offered. That Is why tho ne

piece of news.
"Parties acting for the Santa Fo 'Road,"
said Captain Payson, "have secured these

SAN FRANCISCO. March 13. The San
ta Fe and the Southern Pacific are en
tering upon a war for the lumber traffic
from tho Northern Coast of California,
says the Examiner. The Santa Fe is ex
tending its system in the rich timber dis
trict and projects a new Coast line north
from San Francisco, and, as a nucleus of
the proposed road, has purchased three
email roads in the vicinity of Eureka,
Humboldt County. By obtaining control
of these railroads, the Santa Fe is en
abled to cover the territory as far south
cb Popperwood, whence it contemplates
closing the 150-mile gap to Willits, the
terminus of the California Northwestern.
However. President Harrlman, of the
Southern Pacific, is rumored to have ob
tained an option on a majority of the
stock of the California Northwestern,
with a view to preventing the Santa Fe
people running over that line from Wil
lits to Tlburnon. but the Santa Fe will
offset this scheme, according to Captain
A. BPaysun and W. A. BlsselL the well
known railroad men. by constructing a
parallel line from Willits to this city. The
report regarding the contemplated pur
chase of the California Northwestern,
however, is emphatically denied by Pres
ident A. W. Foster, of that company.
The purchased roads are, the Eel River
& Eureka, Callfornlan Northern and an
extension of the former known as the
California Midland. The Del Norte &
Humboldt County, recently incorporated.

to involve about $750,000.

counter-affidavits, to be filed in the United

"These affidavits," said Colonel Wells

Bill to Check English Ritualists
Passes House - Suppression of
French. Convent Schools.
LONDON. March 13. The entire sitting
of the House of Commons today was oc
cupied with the discussion of the church
discipline bill, which passed Its second
reading by 139 to 51 votes. The Archbishop
of Canterbury, Dr. Davidson and Lord
Halifax, president of the English Church
union, occupied seats In the peers' gallery.
The debate, which was strictly on non
party lines, brought out a strong senti
ment on both aides of the House against
extreme ritualism. The bill proposes giv.
ing the civil courts the right to take cog
nizance of proceedings brought by lay
men to prevent the practice of extreme
rituallem, abolishes the bishops right of
veto and provides that offending clergy
men may be deprived of their livings.
Premier Balfour opposed the measure.
He said the new Arjchbishop of Canter
bury should be given time to carry out
his plans for reform. Mr. Balfour ad
mitted that Illegal practices must be put
down, but he preferred to extend the au
thority of the church rather than to
adopt a policy whjch would "render the
episcopate almpst a superfluity."
Sir vernon Harcourt, Liberal, in sup
porting the bill, said the conditions had
reached a stage where, if the right of

were not given rights In ecclesiastical

better to disestablish the church.
