Engineer Lewis Says They
Should Be Submitted.
State Officer .Points to Terms Of
fered Settlers by &Jq Deschutes
Irrigation & Power f.
SALEM. Or- Sept. 13. (Special.) Be
oause tfee Deschutes Irrigation & Power
Company has already embodied in its
oMttraets with settlors many rules gov
erning the supply and-distribution of wa.
lor. State Engineer Lewis thinks it Is
ttaae general rules were adopted on the
subject and approved by the State Land
Board. This recommendation he made
and strengiy urged at the meeting of the
Beard tait Monday, when the company
presented its request that the State Land
Board apply to the Government for a
patent to the 77,000 acres the company
ctoimc to have roclalmed.
Manager J. O. Johnston, in behalf of the
Irrigation company, argued that the
adoption of rules and regulations is a
vary serious matter, for the rules when
once adopted will probably remain In
force for many generations, hence the
'board should not act hastily. ,
Tne ironclad agreement which the com
pany na Incorporated In Its contracts,
whoreoy the settler makes the terms of
toe contract a part of the deed from the
Ktate. even though the state refuses to
recognize such contracts, seem to form
tne chief basis for Mr. Lewis desire that
mln be adopted In the near future. He
to of tne opinion that if the company can
make rules in Its contracts it can also
.submit tbem in the form of rules for the
approval of the State Land Board, and
that making general rules Is no more
serious a matter than Incorporating
agreements in contracts made by settlers
before they acquire title to land.
The contract which the reclamation
company makes with settlers fixes the
sstonnt of water to be furnished, the
tne within which It may be furnished.
and the purposes for which It may be
"nsed. It contains agreements rogardlng
tn waiver of claims for damages in case
of fattnre of water supply for certain
oaupeis and aleo agreements resrardinjr the
dletrtbtrtion of water pro rata In case of !
iiiiiniii v :
After making various other provisions
repardlag the use of water by the settler,
tn contract closes with a section author
izing the State Land Board "to Incorpo
rate this contract in Its deed for said
premises: and in the ovent that the same
Is not so incorporated, then this contract
amy be treated as an exhibit to said deed
and a part thereof to the same effect and
Intent a If therein written and incorpo
rated." Still stronger provisions are contained
i tne release of Hen which the company
iftsnec to settlers before they can secure
eene from the state. In this document
it fc stipulated that if the State of Ore
poo snail neglect or refuse to embody the
i-rns ana conditions r the contract In
it deed, then the settler, his heirs and
nartgni; agree that the contract shall for
ever be deemed, between the parties
tnereto. to be a part of the deed as fully
as U written at length thoroln. anything
In said dood to the contrary notwith
standing. la speaking of this matter today. Gov
ernor Chamberlain said that he does not
believe that settlers will be bound by
agreement made in the contracts, nor
tnat the contracts can be made effective
a part of the state's dcods, If such agree
ments dUTer from the provisions of the
law and the rules and regulations to be
approved by the State Land Board. If.
however, the agreements are found Ao be
binding forever upon the occupants- of the
land, he does not believe the State Land
Board will Issue deeds unless the con
tracts are first canceled.
The Governor says that If intending set
tlers have been roauired to make agree
ments not contemplated by the law. the
state eaa correct the matter by refusing
to tosnc deeds to such settlors.

Effect or Agreement of Millmen to
Shut Down for Three Months.
TACOMA. Wash.. Sept 13. (Special.)
A second advance In the price of shingles
Is announced by millmen. This Is, in part,
the effect of the recent agreement among
bJngte manufacturers on Puget Sound
and Gray's Harbor to close their mills for
ree months, beginning December L
A month ago the prevailing price for
Eastern shipment was J1.25 a thousand.
Today local firms are taking orders at
51.15. Shingle men state that Jobbers have
awakened to the fact that the manufac
turers mean business. The close of lake
traffic about November 1 always has the
effect of Increasing prices, but never so
early as at present. The prospective car
shortage, too, encourages Eastern dealers
to buy heavily. Shingles are-at least 10
cents higher today than a year ago.

Talk of Revolt From German Rule
In Updo.
ABERDEEN, Wash.. Sept 13. (Spe
cial.) Captain Sangberg, of the schooner
Oceania Vance, who reached here a few
days ago from Apia, Samoa, after a voy
age of 40 days, says that there is much
discontent among the natives of the
Island of Upolo, of which Apia is the chief
port with German rule, and that a revo
lution was talked of when he was there.
One cause of dissatisfaction is the fact
that in the island of Tptulla, where Amer
icans are In control, labor is much bolter
paid. Pango Pango Is the chief town on
the Island of Tutulla, and has the finest
port of any of the islands.
While at Apia, Captain Sangberg wit
nessed a feast of natives of all the Islands
at which 20.000 persons were present The
occasion was the dedication of a Catholic
church composed of cement and built by
the natives.
The wrecks of several warships which

Rich Tract Near Lewiston to
Be Irrigated.
Portland Capital Back of Company
That Has. Secured Control of -10,000
Acres of tho Finest
Land in Northwest.
LEWISTON. Idaho. Sept 13. (Special.)
Through filing of condemnation pro
ceedings in the District Court here today
for land on Craig Mountain, news became
public of a big Irrigation project that is
under way for this section of country.
The project Is of vast importance to
this community and involves the expendi
ture of a large sum of money. Hartman,
Thompson & Powers, well-known invest
ment bankers of Portland, are at tho
head of the enterprise. Suits Just filed
involve the condemnation of lands which
will be the initial reservoirs of the proj
ect and plans for early work on canals
and laterals which will bring water over
land comprising 40,000 acros south and
east of Lewiston are being rapidly
Mr. Powers, who has been looking after
the enterprise, has been in Lewiston
many times, but his plans have been
worked out so quietly that up to this
time no statement has been issued by him
or by his associates. "With Mr. Powers
are strong capitalists of Portland, San
Francisco and Lewiston, and no stock Is
being sold nor any company organized to
handle the project the financing of the
same remaining in first hands. F. D.
Warner, of Portland, Is manager here
for Mr. Powers, but could not bo seen
today relative to plans of the enterprise.
There Is perhaps no finer body of land
in the entire Northwest than that which
lies In the district south and east of Lew
iston, and while these lands are seml
arld In nature, there has been no year
when a crop failure has been recorded.
The promoters have quietly secured a
large area of land. The plans are under
stood to be to convert the lands into
orchard tracts, making it the largest
irrigated district adapted to deciduous
fruits In the entire Columbia and Snake
River Basins.
Resents Apparent Intent to Undo tho
Work He Had Accomplished.
OLYMPIA. Wash.. Sept 13. (Special.)
That the members of the State Tax Com
mission are attempting, without author
ity, to dictate the polio of the State
Board of Equalization, when the law of
1903 made them members of the board this
year only to enable them to gain informa
tion for their own work, were assertions
made by Secretary of State Nichols, at
a short, but warm, sosslon of the Board
of Equalization this aftornoon.
Mr. Nichols, who, under the provisions
of the law, has served on the Board of
Equalization for five annual sessions, took
affront at a motion made by Chairman
T. D. Rockwell, of the new Tex Commis
sion, that it was the pense of the board
that the counties of the state should bo
reclassified for the purposes of equalizing
the .state taxes. Mr. Nichols, apparently,
took this motion to be a criticism of the
classifications of last year, at which time
the board was composed of himself, the
State Auditor and the Land Commis
sioner. Mr. Rockwell said that he believed he
had a right to make a motion, and that
he did not consider the making of it to be
an attempt to dictate to the board. Aud
itor Clausen and Land Commissioner Ross
attempted to smooth matters down by
pointing out that the board was not ready
to take up the matter anyway, inasmuch
as all county reports were not in. Rock
well thereupon withdrew his motion, but
Nichols left the room.
A private conference was immediately
called of the members left by Auditor
Clausen. It was decided that a motion
to reclassify was not necessary, that the
board should proceed to classify the coun
ties without reference to last year's work
and without terming it a reclassification.

American Board Commission
ers at Walla Walla.
Vigorous Defense of the Whitman
Story Is Presented at the Colr
lege Memorial Chapel by
President Capcn.
WALLA WALLA, Wash., Sept 13.
(Special.) The elaborate preparations of
the citizens of Walla Walla to entertain
the delegates on the way to Seattle to
attend the annual convention of the
American Board of Commissioners for
Foreign Missions were marred this after
noon by the necessity of leaving out the
exercises arranged to take place at the
Whitman monument A bad engine In
Montana made the special train of 10
coaches four hours late and the 200 dele
gates who expected to spend two hours
near the scene of the massacre of the
martyred missionary were only able to
catch the glimpse of the monument and
grave in the approaching twilight while
the train made a two-minute stop for
their benefit .
Early this morning a special train left
here with a committee of citizens to meet
the visitors at Wallula headed by Presi
dent S. B. L. Penrose, and Mayor Gil
bert Hunt. It was 5:30 P. M. when the
special train bearing the delegates pulled
Into Wallula and was Immediately
switched on the O. R. & N. tracks arriv
ing at WTaila Walla at 6:15. They were
met at the depot by a committee and citi
zens and driven to Whitman College gym
nasium, where a banquet had been pre
pared In tholr honor by the ladles of the
Congregational Church. Covers were laid
for 250 guests.
At 8 o'clock the guests were ushered
across the campus by college students to
the chapel of Whitman memorial build
ing, where the exercises- of the evening
took place. The platform was occupied
by officials of the American Board and
members of the local committee. A choir
of 30 college students furnished music The
large room was crowded to the doors by
delegates from New England. New York
and Middle West, and college students
and citizens of Valla Walla.
President Penrose Introduced Presi
dent S. B. Capen, of the American
board, as the first speaker. After voic
ing the appreciation of the visitors for
the hospitality received, he gave the
address on "The Significance of the
Whitman Commission," which was to
have been delivered at the monument
this afternoon. It was a vigorous de
fense of the Whitman story and the
great servlco rendered by tho Ameri
can Board missionary to the United
States. Dr. Penrose was congratulat
ed on his work In helping found a
Christian commonwealth.
A. E. Dunning, editor of the Congre
gationalism said the making of the na
tion was In the hands of the youth of
the West as the East Is practically cast
In a mold. Roosevelt's peculiar power
developed In such surroundings.
David P. Jones, the Mayor of Minne
apolis, spoke on the responsibility rest
ing on educated men and women, tell
ing students they would help Whit
man most by using their education to
advance good citizenship.
Dr. Dawson, tho London evangelist,
said the battle of the missionary must
be fought not In Asia. but. in the pews
of the church.
The dramatic feature of the evening
wa the sending of a telegram to Dr.
Pearsons, on motion of Dr. Patten, sec
retary of the board. They agreed unan
imously tc wire him that "193 Congre
gatlonalists, on tholr way to the meet
ing of the American board, stopping at
Whitman, send greeting, rejoicing In
what you have done for this institution
as a memorial for one of our hero mis
sionaries." The change of programme necessi
tated the omission of the recollections
of Mrs. N. A. Jacobs, the sole woman
survivor of the great massacre, which
were to have been read by herself.
As the delegates marched out of the
building In procession they were
cheeren by an enthusiastic crowd of
the students who had assembled on the
steps to bid them farewell. The special
train which bore the guests away left
the depot at about Id o'clock.
