THE MORNING OREGOXTAN. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER, 10, 1906. II HR GAT ON -WESTERN OREGON Government Proposes to Make Fertile Valley Still More Fertile. BUYS LAND FOR TRIAL AVIH Conduct Experimental Stations at Eugene, Corvallis and Hillsboro Believes Valley Farmers Will Make Irrigation General. So enthusiastic has the Government be come over the wonders that can be ac complished by a little water judiciously distributed over farming lands'that it be lieves irrisation would make the rich soil of the Willamette Valley produce greater yields, particularly during July and Au Kust, usually termed the dry months. To ascertain exactly what results can be ob tained along; this line, the Government will send experts to this valley next sea son and make extensive experiments with irrigation. Three stations will be established by these experts one at Eugene, another at Corvallis and a third at Hillsboro. At each point 15 acres have been eecured. On each of these little farms will be dug a largo ditch, known as the main water way. Smaller ditches will be run from the main canal to every portion of the land. Then a largo pumping plant, some what similar to those used in the sub urbs of large cities to supply the resi dents with drinking water, will be placed in the center of the tract. It will then be an easy task to get water all over the land and to keep crops growing thriftily throughout the Summer season. When It has been demonstrated that the plan is not only feasible, but profitable, the Government hopes to induce the farm ers of the Willamette Valley to under take Irrigation in earnest. If they still show a disinclination to do so, there i a possibility that Congress will be called upon to grant an appropriation for expen diture in the construction of irrigation canals through the whole .length and breadth of the Valley. Government Agent Here. Arthur P. Stover, an irrigation engineer with the Department of Agriculture, has devoted his entire time since early in Au gust inquiring into the matter. He will leave this morning for Washington to make his report. He states that his in vestigations have led him to believe that irrigation will do great things for the Willamette Valley, and to convince the farmers he is right In his conclusions he declares that the experimental stations will be established next Spring. The work will bo started sufliciently early, so that the land can be irrigated in July and August. "The agricultural college at Corvallis will assist in irrigating the 15-acre tract at Corvallis," said Mr. Stover, "but those at Eugene and Hillsboro will be looked after altogether by experienced men rep resenting the' Government. We will em ploy identically the same system used for watering the largest areas of land, with the exception of the manner in which the water supply will be secured. Instead of having reservoirs or tapping large, streams, as done in the arid re gions, we will- have pumping plants. The ditches will be built In such a way that water can be distributed over every foot of the land. "Many people entertain the false theory that Irrigation Is of no benefit to a sec tion of the country like Western Oregon, where the annual rainfall is so heavy. But right there is where they are mis taken. When I was here in August there were many fields brown and barren looking. The ground was parched and the crops, which should have Heen grow ing, looked half dead. A little water at that period would have changed their appearance most wonderfully. It is safe to say that had the crops been watered then the yield would have been doubled"! "The Idea is to get the owners of the land Interested in irrigation and prove to them what can be done with it dur ing the dry season of the year. As a usual thing, I am told, there are no green pastures here in July and August. No hay. or any vegetation, can be pro duced in any great quantities during those months. This is not as it should be. The soil in this valley is rich and could be made productive during the en tire growing season by watering the crops." Farms Will Double In Value. Mr. Slover also said that if the farm ers would take hold of this project as they should they would soon double the value of their property. He asserts that it would no doubt prove to be one of the best business moves that they could possibly make and that it would be of inestimable value to this entire section of the country and the Pacific Coast. Asked if the Government is likely to foster the movement in the event that the owners of the land did not see their way clear to go ahead with the venture, he replied: "As to that I cannot say definitely, but it may come to that. I think, how ever, when the result of our experimental work is seen next season that the farm ers will lose no time in getting together and outlining a plan for the irrigation of the entire valley. The experimental stations will be so situated that all of them will have an opportunity to visit the little irrigated farms and see for themselves what can be done with water. It is safe to say there will be a great contrast in the crops growing on the irrigated land which we will have charge of and the adjoining farms. There could be two and possibly three crops of po tatoes grown in this valley every, year." NEW STUMBLIMG BLOCK Property-Owners Object to Filling in of East StarR Street. Some of the property-owners on Kast Stark street and the business men of Cen tral East Portland are concerned over the possible tie feat or delay of the improve ment between Kast Seventh and East Water street. Apparently the improve ment had struck clear sailing, but C. W. Nottingham, -who owns 100 feet on East Stark and has Just completed a large huildlnir to be occupied as a packing liouse, declares that he is opposed to the fill belnfi made under the present pro ceedings, and suggests that the improve ment be divided at Union avenue, the old elevated road between Union avenue and East Water street to be repaired and lUied later, and that part between Union avenue and East Seventh street to be tilled at once. Councilman Kellaher says that If the improvement Is divided up in this way It will again defeat the whole proceedings, and everything must be started over from the besinninsr. which will entail a delay. He favors the till beinsc made as now provided for between East Seventh and East Water streets. The Business Men's Club passed resolutions indorsing the entire fill, and declaring that the whole improvement should be made at once without further delay. Further east the street is torn up and has been closed for several years, notwithstanding agita tion for the improvement was started two years ago. Mr. Nottingham informed Councilman Kellaher that he was opposed to filling west of Union avenue by dump cars be cause of the cost, but favored filling by a dredge. Mr. Keilaher said that would be all right provided there be no delay, and suggested that he put In a bid to fill with river material and give a bond that it be completed the same time the fill east of Union avenue is completed. Mr. Nottingham has this proposition un der consideration. AT THE THEATERS What the Free Aents Say. TWO PERFORMANCES TODAY Greatest American Drama "Arizona" at the Heiliff Theater.

My attention has been called to a communication from Oregon City, in which it appears that ita City Council has adopted a resolution to the intent that there be submitted to he voters of that municipality the question of the purchase o the old home of Dr. John McLoughlln, to be preserved as a memorial of that good old man. v. It is to be earnestly hoped the action of the good people of that city will be favorable to the enterprise. To the old settlers no monument was necessary to remind them of his kindly and charitable acts, of which they, as immigrants, were the beneficiaries. Very few of them re main. But to the descendants of those people and such as have come and are coming to the state later, it is most fit ting that something of the kind proposed should he done to perpetuate the memory of a man whose philanthropy cost him his position as head of the Hudson Bay Company on this Coast, which is a BrltJ Jsh corporation, and would not tolerate giving succor to the needy immigrants of the early 40's or encouragement to the settlement of the country by Americans.

SHORTAGE IS ACUTE Oregon Railroads Virtually Un able to Get Cars. SHIPPERS ARE DESPERATE Situation, Instead of Improving Xow Is Worse Than Ever Little Roll ing Stock Being Delivered to Harrinian Lines. Although everything is belns done that can be done by the Oregon railroads to relieve the congestion, the car shortage that has embarrassed shippers for the past few months has reached an acute stage. It is now worse than ever before and the situation' is said by those in a position to know, to be the most dam aging to business in the annals of Oregon railroading. Cars are well nigh impos sible to secure. Business men interested In the moving of all kinds of freight are clamoring for cars, but to no purpose. No relief is in sight. The wheat crop in the interior is wait ing to be moved to Portland, where ships are lying ready to take the grain to for eign ports. There are no cars available to transport this year's crop to tidewater and grain exporters are desperate. Saw mill men see ruin staring them in the face, for unless cars can be had to carry their products to market, shutdowns and heavy losses are unavoidable. Hop dealers are anxious to have their hops hauled East and merchants generally are at their wits' end for transportation. The supply of cars is strikingly inade quate. There are two sources from which the Oregon lines of the Harriman system secure empty cars. These are the de livery of "empties" by the Southern Pa cific at Ashland or by the Oregon Short Line at Huntington. Owing to the freight congestion at San Francisco, there are no deliveries now being made at Ashland. The cars turned over to the Short Line at Huntington are so few in number that they fail to supply half the demand. Other railroads connecting with the Harriman lines are utterly at the mercy of the allied roads. Eastern xoads which have no lines to Portland, but yet do considerable freight business here, must take what cars the Harriman roads are disposed to give them. Should an empty car belonging to a railroad outside of this state come here, agents of that road cannot claim it, as the disposition of the car rests entirely with the Harriman line bringing it into the state, and if so dis posed the Harriman agent can spot it for their own loading, refusing the car to the owners. With their officials constantly worried by anxious shippers, the Harriman lines are not likely to supply other roads with cars when their own needs are so press ing. Roads which altogether depend on the Harriman lines for rolling stock be cause of their connections with them, are placed in a decidedly unpleasant position. "The car situation is the worst I have ever known it to be," said W. C. Mc Bride, general agent for the Denver & Rio Grande, yesterday. "It seems to be a result of too much prosperity. We are unable to get cars to supply shippers and, I d6 not know what we are going to do to relieve matters." "The condition is just this." said W. E. Coman, assistant general freight agent for the Harriman lines, "much more freight is hauled East and South than comes West. The difficulty is in getting these cars back. With deliveries of 'empties' at Ashland virtually at an end and the number of cars turned over to us at Huntington far short of the demands of traffic in this state, we are naturally unable to furnish rolling stock. The con dition is one beyond our control. Every thing possible is being done to ease the situation." The lack of cars from other parts of the Harriman system is easily explained by the fact that there, too, the demands of the shipper are constantly for more cars. Throughout the Middle West there is said to be a greater shortage of cars than in the Pacino Northwest and no great relief can be expected from there.

ROMANCE COMES TO GRIEF Seafaring Thief Refuses to Marry and Returns to Jail. An odd romance was brought to an unpleasant end yesterday forenoon in the Municipal Court when Alex Stevens, for mer mate on an English sailing vessel, was sentenced to 365 days on the county rockpile. The charge against him was petty larceny. The sentence put Stevens back In pre cisely the same plight he was in three weeks agof when he was pardoned from the County Jail by" Governor Chamber lain at the instance of a woman who said she wished to marry him. The wo man is a resident of Portland and has means. She vouched for the prisoner's future conduct at the time the Governor acted. The two met last May when Stevens came here on an English ship and was left behind. It is said Imprisonment threw a glamor around the sailor in the woman's eyes and her excess of senti ment caused her to camp for weeks on the trail of the authorities in Stevens' behalf. Finally the prisoner was released, but the wedding bells did not ring. Stevens was not nearly so devoted when he got out of jail and matrimonial complications were continually staved off. Yesterday ended the affair. Stevens went back to jail, and no pardons will come his way this tipie, not even if half the sentimental women in Portland want to marry him. He was convicted of hav ing stolen eight sacks of potatoes, a ton of coal and a coil of steel rope. So far as known he had no use for the plunder and his crime is attributed to an innate desire to be stealing something. SENDS IN FALSE ALARM Miss Nellie Sanders Tries to Mail Letter in Fire Box. Miss Nellie Sander, residing- on First street near Madison, wished to mail some letters at 12:30 o'clock yesterday after noon, but instead of slipping them into the slot in one of Uncle Sam's green boxes, she tackletJ a fire alarm box by mistake and soon had all kinds of ap paratus thundering to box 126, at First and Jefferson. When Miss Sanders saw the fire appa ratus coming in response to her call she took fright and started to run from the box. but was overtaken by Captain Ker rigan, of Chemical Company No. 2, and returned to the box for cross-examination. Acting Police Detective Price was pres ent and telephoned to Captain of Police Moore, asking what action should be taken. He was Instructed to see Assist ant Fire Chief Laudenklos and ascertain his wishes in the matter. Chief Lauden klos, after hearing Miss Sanders' ex planation and learning she had pulled in the alarm by mistake, ordered her released with a good-humored lecture on the difference between fire alarm and mail boxes. Miss Sanders was hysterical over .her mistake, and lost no time in hurrying away from the large crowd that had gathered. There have been many alarms turned) In by men who mistook the Are boxes for mail boxes, but this is the first case of the kind on record in which a woman has figured.

ACHESON CO. COULD HOT REST DAY IT With Irritating Skin Humor Whole Body Affected Scalp Itched All the Time and Hair Began to Fail Out Wonderful Result From APPLICATION OF CUTICURA REMEDIES "I am never -without Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Ointment since I tried them last summer.. About the latter part of July my whole body began to itch. I did not take much notice of it at first, but it began to get worse ail the time, anijthen I began to get uneasy and tried all kinds of baths and other remedies that were recommended for skin humors; but I became worse all the time. My hair began to fall out and my scalp itched all the time. Espe cially at night, just as soon as I would get in bed and get warm, my whole body would begin to itch and my finger nails would keep it irritated, and it was not long before I could not rest night or day. A friend asked me to try the Cuticura Remedies, and I did, and the first appli cation helped me wonderfully. For about four weeks I would take a hot bath every night and then apply the Cuticura Ointment to my whole body; and I kept getting better, and by the time I used four boxes of Cuticura I was entirely cured, and my hair stopped falling out, but I continue to use the Cuticura on my scalp. It keeps all dan druff out and scalp is always clean. I always use Cuticura Ointment on my face after shaving, and have found nothing to equal it. I will never be without it." D. E.
