Government Irrigation
Plan Is Accepted.
Engineer's Report Indorsed
Wjth Ringing Cheers.
Water-Users Association ,Wfft Be
Formed at Once and Steps Taken
" to Reclaim Vast "TYact In
Southern Oregon.
KLAMATH. FaULS, Or., ,Nov. 30.
(Sp&claL.") Cheers from a thousand
throats replied when Supervising En
gineer J. D. Llpplncott, of the Govern
jneat' Survey, asked for vindication of
Ills report that the people of Klamath
County were In favor of Irrigation. The
visit of F. H. Newell, chief engineer 'of
the reclamation service, and party will
result in the organization of a water
users association and the project set in
motion for the reclamation of over 500,000
acres of iand in this section.
It was a big day for Klamath Falls
and Klamath. County. A mass meeting
of landowners from near and remote parts
of the Great Lake region of Oregon was,
held this afternoon at Houston's Opera
House. They had come to listen to ad
dresses by officials of the reclamation
6orvico on the subject of Government ir
rigation and to express themselves un
qualifiedly in favor of Government aid,
and this they did.
Newell Impressed With Country.
The first speaker was F. H. Newell,
chief engineer of the Reclamation serv
ice, having spent nearly three days look
ing over a portion of the area where the
reclamation work is proposed. He said
he was greatly impressed with the soil,
climate, water supply and inducements
to be found here. He considered, the pro
posed reclamation work here one of the
most feasible ever investigated by the
Government. This is a splendid arid reg
ion for large development work, he said,
and Government irrigation promises much
for Its future.
Morris Bean, legal adviser of the Gov
ernment reclamation work, told briefly of
the complications and difficulties that
would be met with in bringing the under
taking to a successful issue, but stated
that the landowners would have the sup
port 'of tho Government officials in over
coming them.
T. H. Means, Government expert on
Eoll, said that until his arrival here he
had not thought it possible to find so
much good land and so much water so
easily accessible for reclamation pur
poses. Nevada, he said, where Govern
ment reclamation work is being done,
had no advantages in any respect over
Cheers for Mr. Llpplncott.
J. D. Lipplncott, supervising engineer
of the Government survey, stirred his
listeners to a high pitch of enthusiasm
by his remarks. He had "visited this sec
tion some-time ago and had sent word
back to "Washington that the people of
Klamath favored Government irrigation.
He was forwarded from headquarters
documentary evidence that such was not
the case that the people here preferred
irrigation by private corporation. He
said he wanted to bo vindicated In the
presence of Mr. Newell, and asked those
favoring Government irrigation to stand
As one man, the assemblage arose,
cheering loudly. Prompt action was taken
for the organization of a water-users'
association. This will be done probably
tomorrow. Klamath, now on the eve of
much greater development, will in the
near future have the aid of the Govern
ment in transforming the great Klamath
sage plains and marshlands into pro
ductive and remunerative farms.
Today's mass meeting was the largest,
most important and unanimous ever held
in this part of the state. Circuit Judge
Benson presided.
Governor Urges Good Representation
at Livestock Association.
SALEM, Or., Nov. 30. (Special.) "It
is very important that Oregon be well
represented at the annual convention
of the National Livestock Association,"
said Governor Chamberlain today, "and
I trust that a strong- delegation will go
to Denver when the convention meets
January 10. The livestock interests of
Oregon are very extensive and we are
also Interested in various subjects that
will come up for consideration, such as
the use of public lands for grazing, and
legislation regarding an Interstate
commerce law. The convention will
very probably take some action .recom
mending legislation on these subjects,
and Oregon should be represented. I
am asked to appoint three delegates
from this state and deslr to appoint
representative livestock men who will
"Last year the National Livestock
Association held its convention in
Portland and there was a large repre
sentation from all parts of the coun
try. In holding Its convention here tb
association conferred a great honor
upon us, and Oregon should reciprocate
by sending a good delegation to tho
next session. The Livestock Associa
tion is composed of men of wealth and
business ability and are leaders in th,e
states from which they come. Their
discussions are interesting and instruc
tive, as all who attended the conven
tion in Portland last Winter will agree
There is every reason why Oregon
should be well' represented, and I hops
to receive early assurances that it
will be."
The call for the convention, a copy
of which the Governor has received,
says that local committees in Denver
are arranging for various entertain
ments, which will be free to all dele
gates, and advance information will
be furnished to delegates regarding
hotel accommodations and other ar
rangements. The railroads have made
a rate of one fare for the round trip
from Pacific states, the tickets being
good for 30 days with stopover privi
leges returning. The circular says that
delegates may be appointed as follows:
Each state, county or local range as
Bociatlqn of livestock breeders, one
delegate lor each 10,000 head of stock
represented by its members.
Each Governor, three delegates-at-large.
Each feeders' and breeders' associa
tion, one delegate-at-large and one for
every 25 members.
In counties where there is no live
stock association, the County Commis
sioners may appoint one delegate.
Each State Livestock ' Commission,
three delegates.
Each Chamber of Commerce, one
delegate for every 100 members.
Each State Board of Agriculture, Ag
ricultural College, stockyards company,
transportation company, dairymen's as
sociation and state irrigation associa
tion, one delegate each.
:' H. E. Kennedy, of Denver, Colo., Is
secretary of the association.
The Governor is also, anxious that
Oregon shall bo suitably represented
at the annual session of the American
Forestry Congress', which meets in
Washington January 2 to . As Ore
gon Js deeply interested in all matters
.relating to forestry the Governor
thinks this state should send a 'good
-delegation. He would like to learn, the
names of persons who will attend.

No Poison in Chamberlain's Conch Remedy.
From Napier, New Zealand, Herald:
Two years ago the Pharmacy Board of
New South Wales, Australia, had an
analysis made of all the cough medicines
that were sold In that market Out of
the entire list they found only one that
they declared' was entirely free from all
poisons. This exception was Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy, made by the Cham
berlain Medicine Company, Des Moines,
la., TJ. S. A. The absence of all nar
cotics makes this remedy the safest and
best that can be had; and it is with a
feeling of security that any mother can
give it to her little ones. Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy is especially recommend
ed by its makers for coughs, colds, croup
and whooping cough. When taken in tlm6
it prevents pneumonia. This remedy is
for sale by all druggists.

OLTMPIA. Wash., Nov. 30. (Special.)
The annual report of the State Fish
Commissioner, which was filed today,
gives the total pack of salmon on Puget
Sound at 239,000 cases, and on the Wash
ington side of the Columbia at 95.400. and
a total of 525,000 cases on the river.
The Commissioner estimates that the out
put of salmon fry by the state hatcheries
this year will aggregate 19,(00,000.
An important section of the report deals
with the fishing industry on the Colum
bia River and explains the action of Fish
Commissioner Kershaw in permitting the
taking of salmon this year after the date
fixed by law for tho close of the sea
son. The Commissioner declares that but
for his action in the matter a large num
ber of fishermen on the Columbia would
have become bankrupt, the cold-storage
houses would have been without a prod
uct to market and even the merchants
who depend on the trade of fishermen and
canncrymen would have been seriously
The. Commissioner says ho made a trip
to all the fishing points on tho Columbia
September 10, tho last day of the open
season, and found the conditions as above
described, and in addition found the fish
then being taken to be in good flesh, with
a large school reported at the mouth of
tho river and only one-tenth of the pack
up. He therefore decided to allow the
taking of salmon for several days longer,
without enforcing the law, and as a re
sult the canneries got up a full pack.
Change of Season Favored.
The Commissioner in his report favors
the changing of opening of the fishing sea
son to about ten days later than at pres
ent, making it about August 25, and
changing the closing date to ten days
later or September 10. The runs havo
been coming later every year until now
tho law In force is obsolete and threatens
to throttle the industry. The Commission
er, however, recommends a Joint confer
ence between committees and the Legisla
tures of Oregon and Washington and the
adoption of suggestions of these commit
tees in reference to the changes in the
close season.
The report relates the history of troubles
arising out of the uncertainty of the
boundary line on the Columbia and rec
ommends that the Legislature, ? it has
the power, attempt to establish the bound
ary. The report al discusses the noed for a
close season on Puget Sound. Commit
tees havo been appointed by the Fraser
River Packers Association and the Puget
Sound Association to discuss this ques
tion, and the Fish Commissioner recom
mends the adoption of their report. The
hatchery season for the present year was
almost a failure. The 19,000,000 fry that
wlll be turned loose were practically all
hatched from eggs taken since the late
rain started. Low water, according to
the report, is entirely responsible for the
compaatively small output.
Last year the output was 37,000,000, which
was considered small in comparison with
the output of the preceding year, which
aggregated 84,000,000. The failure last
year was due to early freshets carrying
away the eggs that had been, taken. The
Commissioner says there is no occasion
for alarm over possible results from a
failure of two seasons In tho hatcheries.
In Regard to Oysters and Game.
In oysterlands the state has added 7003
acres to the reserves from which tho lands
cannot be sold, making a total of 15,000
acres In the reservations. Tho Commis
sioner recommends a sale of a carefully
selected nonproductive portion of the re
serves on Puget Sound. He favors, how
ever, retention of all the reserves in Wll
lapa Harbor. The sale of seed oysters from
the reserves for the last year aggregated
over fOOOO, which will enable the replac
ing of the $5000 granted from the general
fund two years ago for the survey of the
reserves and their protection.
The Fish Commissioner Is Game Warden
for the State, and his report shows a col
lection for the game protection fund In
the several counties for the last year of
$14,500. After paying tho expenses of dep
uty wardens there Is a credit to the fund
of $10,500.
The creation of office of Chief Deputy
Game Warden is recommended, but no
changes In tho game laws are suggested.
The report is comprehensive and con
tains much valuable information, includ
ing the estimates of the yearly packs of
salmon in tho Columbia River, Puget
Sound and Fraser River districts sdncs
1SS6, a compilation that has never before
been attempted.
Carefully Investigated Building of the
Cellio Portage Road.
WALLA WALLA, Wash., Nov. 30.
(Special.) Dr. N. G. Blalock, of the ex
ecutive commltteo of the Open River
Commission, was asked this afternoon
concerning the charges of certain Port
land contractors that they have not been
given a fair deal In .awarding the con
tract for constructing the Cclilo portago
road. He said he thought the public was
entitled to know the reasons of the
board for awarding the contract .to the
McCabe Company, of Tacoma, and gave
out the following:
"Tho Open River Association realized
that the portage road would not be com
pleted if It did not go about the matter
in a different fashion from that attempt
ed by the state board, and In order to as
sist the etate board the .executive- com
mittee went to work, to see If it could
find contractors or any one that would
help them. After corresponding with a
number of engineers and contractors, we
got in communication with the McCabe
Company, of Tacoma, Wash., and suc
ceeded In getting their engineer, A. McL.
Hawks, Interested enough to go over the
contemplated route.
"After making careful observations and
examining what Is known as the Ham
mond survey, he reported to his company
and they made a proposal to the as
sociation that they would furnish bonds
to the satisfaction of the state board and
would take the pledge of the association
for any deficit that might appear on care
ful investigation to be necessary to con
struct the work. Upon this representa
tion the chief engineer of the McCabe
Company accompanied the executive com
mittee to Salem and made this proposal
to the state "board, which was satisfac
tory. . .
"It was agreed mutually that as soon
as accurate surveys, plans and specifica
tions could be made the contract would
be let to that company. The executive
board believes that had It acted other
wise it would have been a breach of honor
and unfair dealing, after these men had
faithfully assisted us In making It pos
sible to construct the portage road. They
alone made It possible for us to go before
the board with a tangible offer. If it had
not been for them the state board would
not have talked with us for a moment.
People told the McCabe Company they
must be fools to take the pledge of five
men for the $40,000 deficiency, and when
they did this wo do not think it would
be fair, right or proper to throw them
Whitakers Sued for Breach of Con
tract by Company.
CORVALLIS, Or., Nov. 30. (Special.)
Extreme interest has centerel here for
the past two days in the trial of a hop
contract case in the Circuit' Court. In
1901 John Whitaker contracted to furnish
Faber & Nels 2O.C00 pounds of hops an
nually, and for three years delivered -the
product. This year Frank Whitaker, to
whom the yard had been transferred,
refused to deliver, and Nels brought suit
for above $5000 damages.
For a defense, the Whitakers allege
that In February. 1903, after all their hop
poles had been washed away by high
water, they communicated with Nels and
proposed to abandon the yard. Nels pre
vailed on them to agree to take off one
more crop, that of 1903, and they agreed.
The Whitakers attorneys urge that this
oral agreement was abandonment of the
1901 contract and cite statute and au
thorities In support of their contention.
As further defense, the Whitakers as
sert that In March this year there were
negotiations with Nels for a contract for
this season's crop, and on tho witness
stand Nels admitted that he made them
a proposal which, they did not accept.
The Whitakers offer In evidence a con
tract signed by them for this year's crop,
but which is not signed by Nels. These
negotiations are also offered as evidence
that the written 1901 contract Is not now
in effect
The argument occupied tho greater por
tion of today, and tho case went to the
Jury late this afternoon.
Jacob Schlff at Head of Project in
San Francisco.
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 30. The Ex
aminer says today:
Jacob Schlff, th.e New Tork financier,
is one of the men behind the proposition
to establish an opposition gas and elec
tric light company In San Francisco. A
$50,000,000 syndicate was organized some
time ago In New Tork to take hold of
pertain large Industrial proposals In big
Western cities, and one of these schemes
is an opposition lighting plant in San
Mr. Schlff has already a considerable
Interest In tho stock of the San Francis
co Coko & Gas Company, which is the
foundation on which the new lighting en
terprise Is to be constructed. San Fran
cisco Coke & Gas has an issue of 39,000
shares of stock, of which 36,000. shares
are held in New York by eight men, in
cluding Mr. Schlff. Three men in this
city hold the remaining 3000 shares.
The new company Is already making
contracts for 75-cent gas for five years
with consumers. Just as soon as the
Eastern manufacturers can deliver the
pipe the new company will put down a lot
of mains.
Another uang that Mr- Schlff did while
here was to approve of E. H. Harriman's
plan for a 33,000-foot tunnel through the
Sierra Nevada Mountains. By this means
over 1500 feet of the present mountain
grade of the Central Pacific will be got

SALEM, Or., Nov. 30. (Special.)
The Federal law and not the state law
governs the time of meeting of tho
Presidential electors, hence tho suc
cessful candidates in Oregon will meet
on the second Monday in January,
which will be January 9, the same day

that tho Secretary o.f State has Issued
a' certificate of election to three Re
publican candidates and one Demo

cates of election have yet been issued
to any of the electors. No question
has been raised as to the eligibility of
any of the candidates, and as soon as

Washington Legislature Has a
Most Potent Remedy,
If Landlords Are Not Moderate, Ses
sion Can Be Adjourned to Meet
In Some, Other City of
the State. .
SEATTLE. Wash., Nov. 30. (Special,)
Members of the Legislature claim they,
hold a club over Olympla and can force
the people of the capital city to be moder
ate In rent demands. Whether a careful
reading ot the constitution and statutes
would bear out the claims made oy law
makers is not clear, but if It does Olympla
will be compelled to listen to the demand
for moderation In rents.
As a result of the destruction of the
Olympla Hotel there has been a disposi
tion on the part of many landlords to
raise rents to an unusual degree. In
stances have been recited where rents are
more than doubled and those who had
taken apartments in the Olympla Hotel
before that structure was destroyed by
fire declare "that a similar policy was de
cided upon at tho hotel. Double charges
were exacted from some members who
had taken apartments prior to the fire.
It was explained by a prominent mem
ber of the State Senate today that if
Olympla was not moderate In its rent
demands the Legislature had a way of
meeting the difficulty that would either
force the people of Olympla to terms or
would allow tho Legislature to escape high
"We have tho authority," explained thl3
lawmaker, "to meet In Olympla and then
adjourn to some other city. For instance,
we could hold a session of two or three
days, say, until after the Governor had
been inaugurated and delivered his inaug
ural address in the capital city.
"After that there Is nothing to prevent
us" from adjourning to meet in Tacoma
or Seattle, 'wherever suitable quarters
could be obtained. We could meet In one
of these towns for practically the entire
session, going back to Olympla long
enough to adjourn and close up our work.
"If the people of Olympla are not mod
erate in their demands for rent I for
one am In favor of taking just such ac
tion. It would not be necessary to actual
ly go away from Olympla to get conces
sions: the mere threat of going as soon
as the people saw we were In earnest
would bring about the reform. As soon as
the people of Olympla realize that this al
ternative is open to us I think they would
equalize their rents."
The disposition to charge high rents is
not as strong in Olympla now as It was
Immediately after the destruction of the
Olympla Hotel. At that time the people
were uncertain about the town's ability to
handle all tho Legislative crowds and tho
shortage of rooms gave an opportunity for
high rents.
To some extent tho members of the
Legislature themselves were responsible
for the advanced charges, for they rushed
into Olympla immediately and began bid
ding for apartments. Naturally the big
demand caused an Increase in rates. Now
that this rush has subsided somewhat end
the people are made certain that plenty
of quarters will be provided the disposi
tion to bo eager for high rents is abating.
Thfire is a feeling that moderation will
"This Is especially strengthened "by the
fact that Influential Olympla people are
cautioning their townspeople against ex
tortion. While the threat of removal i3
probably one that will prove effective, the
big supply of rooms may work out a so
lution of the problem by Itself.

Charcoal Is a remedy that the more you
take of it the better; it Is not a drug at
all, but simply absorbs the gases end Im
purities always present in the stomach
and Intestines and carries them out of tho
Charcoal sweetens the breath after
smoking, drinking or after eating onions
and other odorous vegetables.
Charcoal effectually clears and Im
proves the complexion, It whitens tho
teeth and further acts as a natural and
eminently safe cathartic
It absorbs the injurious gases which col
lect In tho stomach and bowels; it disin
fects the mouth and throat from the
poison of catarrh.
All druggists sell charcoal In one form
or another, but probably tho best char
coal and the most for the money is in
Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges; they are
composed of the finest powdered Willow
Charcoal and other harmless antiseptics
In tablet form, or rather In the form of
large, pleasant-tasting lozenges, the char
coal being mixed with honey.
Tho dally use of these lozenges will soon
tell in a much improved condition of the
general health, better complexion, sweeter
breath and purer blood, and the beauty of
it is that no possible harm can result
from their continued use, but, on the con
trary, great benefit
A Buffalo physician, in speaking of the
benefits of charcoal, says: "I advise
Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges to all pati
ents suffering from gas in stomach and
bowels and to clear the complexion and
purify the breath, mouth and throat; I
also believe the liver Is greatly benefited
by the dally use of them; they cost but 25
cents a box at drug stores, and. although
in some sense a patent preparation, yet I
believe I get more and better charcoal In
Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges than In any of
the ordinary charcoal tablets."
