MOORE GIVES VIEWS
Klamath Irrigation Is Sure to
CANAL WORK BY NEW YEAR
Government Will Begin Work as
Soon as Settlers Comply With
Conditions Will Water
SALEM. Aug. 24. (Special.) "The con
struction of the Klamath Irrigation Sys
tem Is a practical certainty," said State
Treasurer Moore today upon his return
from a two weeks visit to Klamath
County. "Of course there is a hare possi
bility that the project will fail, but the
0ucceP3 of the enterprise is as certain as
Clatters of that kind can be at this stage
of the proceedings. The Government has
required that 7B per cent of the property
owners within the terrtiories to be cover
ed by the system shall sign agreements
for the sale of their land in excess of
160 acres, before construction shall begin.
My confidence in the success of the en
terprise is due to my confidence that the
property owners will sign the required
agreements. In other words. I think the
people who own property in the district
will see that it is to their own financial
Interest to make the agreements.
"The requirement Is that the property
owners execute trust deeds for all their
land in excess of 100 acres. The trust
deeds provide that the owner shall sell
his land to settlers In tracts of not to
exceed 160 acres each, or. that if he
falls to dispose of it before the Govern,
roent has water ready to turn upon it,
the Secretary of the Interior may sell it
in 160-acre tracts to the highest bidders,
giving the ownor the proceeds of the sale.
I believe this is a reasonable requirement,
and that the land owners as a rule will
so regard It
"It Is the intention of the Reclamation
Service to let a contract for the con
struction of the first section of the sys
tem as soon as 75 per cent of the property
owners reached by that section have
signed the agreements. I expect to see
this accomplished and a contract let for
the construction of the first ten miles of
canal, including 4,000 feet of tunnel, before
the first of the year.
"It seems to me to be a good plan to
construct the canal in sections and put
the land upon the market a little at a
time, for that will enable the property
owners to sell to the best advantage. If
all tho surplus land in the 250,000 acres
to be reached by tho system were thrown
upon the market at once. It would be
more difficult to soil at a fair price.
"As I understand the Government's
plans, those who do not sign the required
agreements will be unable to secure water
Tor their land. By later complying with
the requirements they can secure water
rights, but they will be required to pay
a slightly higher rate In order to place
them upon an equality with thoss who
paid earlier. If "5 per cent of the prop
erty pays the cost of constructing the sys
tern, the money paid by the other 25 per
cent later will go to the 75 per cent to
reimburse them for the excess they were
compelled to pay.
"Matters of this kind take time, and I
am not surprised that the people take
plenty of time to think It over before
signing agreements. In the end, however,
I am satisfied they will see that they
cannot sell their land to advantage or use
it themselves unless they have water
rights, and since they cannot get the
-water rights without complying with the
Government requirements, they will fall
In line and all will be working in the
common cause of securing the construc
tion of an Irrigation system which means
immense development to the resources of
the Klamath country."

the direct charge made by the grand Jury,

BUYERS WANT CHEAP SALMON
Reports Say Price Has Fallon From
Ten to Fifteen CentB.
ASTORIA. Or.. Aug. 24. (Special.) Ac
cording to private telegraphic advices re
ceived hero today there has been a cut
made by the Alaska Packers' Association
on certain grades' of salmon, but the re
duction is not of so serious a nature as
has been reported. Some weeks ago the
association fixed its opening figures on
Alas"ka reds at 51 a dozen, and a few
sales were made at that price. On last
Saturday a report was current that the
association had cut the price to 85 cents
per dozen, and last evening telegrams
were received from Eastern brokers as
serting not only that the cut had been
made but that all the bookings made at
51 are to be filled at the lower rate. Ad
vices received today, however, show that
while the reported cut is partially true, it
does not affect this year's pack of red
fish. The Alaska Packers' Association
has quite a quantity of last year's fish
on hand, and it has quoted a rate of S5
cents per dozen on 1504 red fish, and on
this year's Fall fish, which means the
lower grades of Alaska salmon. The as
sociation, in place of cutting the price on
the 1S05 pack, is said to have withdrawn
ita holdings from the market for the
present. There have also been reports
telegraphed about the country that some
of the Independent companies have been
making sales of reds as low as 3 cents
per dozen. This Is strenuously denied by
those Interested, and the lowest sales of
ficially announced are at So cents. Just 5
cents per dozen below the association's

themselves in their respective offices. No
opposition has developed to either of

have urged that the rule against a third

cational offices, which are nonpolltical.
Nomination for a third term In a Judicial
or educational office has been frequent in
this state and this fact, together with the
general approval which has been ac

the advice of their friends. Should any

each will run upon the record made dur

cial for uterine trouble some time ago, and my
youngest daughter is now taking It for a fe
male weakness, and is surely gaining in health
" I freely advocate it as a most reliable spe
cific in all diseases to which women are sub
ject, and give it honest endorsement."
