States and Nation Must Find
Way to Solve New Con
ditions, Says Lane.
Washington, Oregon and Federal
Government All Interested in De
velopment of Power, but Juris
diction Is In Question.
That an entirely new situation con
fronts the Government in the handling
of interstate waterpowers, and that it
probably be necessary to handle it
In an entirely new way. is the opinion
of Secretary of the Interior Lane.
The Oregon phase of this new situa
tion was called to the attention of Sec.
retary Lane by State Knglneer Lewis,
as they came down the banks of the
Columbia on the return from the trip
to Redmond Monday.
They had been discussing the possi
bilities of power development of the
river below Celilo Falls, near The
Xo fixed authority exists that could
permit the development of the vast
power there. Both the States or Ore
gon and Washington are interested in
and have a certain authority over the
water and power of' tho Columbia,
which, as a navigable stream, is also
under the Jurisdiction of the Federal
Power Commlmttom Snasjested.
State Engineer Lewis suggested to
Secretary Lane that the solution of the
problem could be reached by the for
mation of a Federal water and power
commission, to have Jurisdiction over
all questions where Interstate rights, or
the right of any state and the right
of the Government, are Involved.
"This problem confronts the United
States for the first time," said Secre
tary Lane, "and some method should
certainly be devised for meeting It."
To show that the Government Is
capable of meeting new situations In
new ways. Secretary Lane cited the
case of an irrigation project in the
Lake Pend d'Oreille district of Idaho,
where the Government owns the dam
and reservoir, but leases It to a private
rompany. The company, however, ts
limited in the charges It may make to
water-users, as the Government bases
the amount of Its leasage on that
He cited cases in the Flathead Lake
district of Montana and near Helena,
as involving: new questions of policy as
to the handling of water and power
Columbia Holds Vast Power.
" great power will some day be
developed here on the Columbia,
whether by tho State of Oregon, the
Federal Government, or by private en
terprise, acting under certain policies
that will Insure the greatest benefit to
the user of water or power," lie said.
"This Columbia River power, pro
duced, as it can be, at a low cost, may
be used to pump water to irrigate vast
tracts of land now useless."
State Engineer Lewis gave as other
Instances of the need of a Federal
Commission on water and water power
the conditions that exist on the Snake
River, between Oregon and Idaho, also
a navigable stream, and the Jordan
Creek irrigation problem. The creek
rises In Idaho, and a reservoir in that
state is designed to irrigate 50.000 acres
In Oregon. HeVlso said that interstate
complications are likely soon to arise
between Oregon and California over the
Klamath River. j
"These are just a few of the many
problems that will be pressing in the
near future." said Mr. Lewis, "that
would come under the jurisdiction of
such a commission as I have sug
gested." Secretary Lane expressed himself as
being favorably impressed with the
idea of such a commission, whose
powers would be parallel to those exer
cised by the Interstate Commerce Com
mission in the matter of the Country's
Estimate la Prepared.
Engineer Lewis has prepared a ten
tative estimate which Indicates that
300.000 horsepower may be developed
on the Columbia below Celilo falls at
a cost of 123.000,000. or about $77 a
horsepower. After the power is devel
oped he believes that it can be pro
duced so cheaply that low tension
power may be sold for $7 a year per
The last Oregon Legislature appro
priated J 15,000 for the purpose of mak
fng investigations as to the feasibility
and cost of the project. The act mak
ing the appropriation provided that it,
or as much of it us should be neces
sary, should be expended under the
supervision of a commission composed
of the State Engineer and two members

Commissioner Daly Issues Statement
Regarding Proposal to
Make Change.
At two meetings yesterday it was
decided to retain the cashiers in the
three water offices. In the City Hall,
on Russell street and at East Alder
and East Seventh street. Present at
the session were City Commissjoners
Daly and Bipelow. Superintendent
Dodge and Chief Clerk Seibolt. of the
water department; City Treasurer
Adams and Mr. Holton. of ttfe bureau
of municipal research.
Other matters in connection with
the change In the making of water
payments will be definitely decided at
a meeting at 2 P. M. Friday.
Because the proposed changes have
been the cause of much speculation and
of considerable bewilderment, the fol
lowing statement was Issued from the
office of Commissioner Daly, of the de
partment of public utilities, yesterday:
For the first time In the hiatory of Port
land the water consumers are being iciven
a voice rn a measure providing a change
in the method of paying water rates.
When municipal research experts, now en.
gaged In the work: of devising more eco
nomical plans tor the administration of
the affairs of the city, suprgrsted that a
considerable saving could be effected In the
Water Bureau by substituting quarterly for
monthly payments of water rates the Com
missioner gave the matter his attention,
was Impressed with Hs possibilities and
decided to put the question to a vote of the
people. '
Though convinced that the " new plan
would save thousands of dollars annually
In the operating costs of the "Water Bureau.
I was unwilling to adopt the Innovation ar
bitrarily, aa realized that there are many
persons who might find the quarterly pay
ment in advance a strain on their slender
In order to ascertain the sentiment of the
water-using public, something like CO.000
blank ballots were sent out.
These ballots are being received dally by
the Water Bureau and as soon as all have
been filed a count will be made. The de
cision will be guided by the result of this
count.'-! wish to emphasize the tact that 1
have no personal inteerst in the quarterly
payment method other than that of a pub
lic official who seeks to economize wherever
possible In the conduct of public affairs.
Whether or not the quarterly plan
Is adopted, considerable saving; will be
effected in the water bureau by the
reduction of the force of clerks now
employed. Commissioner Daly has de
cided that the accounting; system can
be greatly simplified and at the same
time made more efficient. Probably a
dozen clerks will be dropped from the
payrolls soon. Should the quarterly
payment plan be adopted, he says, the
force of clerks in the water bureau can
be reduced to half the present number.
The Water Bureau lias decided to
turn water into the pipes of the South
West Side Water Company, which sup
piles that portion of the county south
west of the city. One dollar will be
charged for the Installation of each
tap outside the city limits.
Cans of Salmon Alone Do
Not a Grocery Make
Therefore Mayor Albee Will See
That S. Brnan'a "Clroceir-Salooa"
License ta Revoked. .
WHEN Is a grocery store not a
grocery store?
(Answer.) When its stock consists
only of a few cans of salmon.
That Is all the grocery store of S.
Brunn, 133 M Aider street contains,
except the stock in trade authorized by
Brunn'8 possession of a grocery liquor
license. .
Brunn applied to Mayor Albee soma
time ago for a grocery liquor license,
which costs only S400 a year, half as
much as the saloons have to pay. The
Mayor granted the license and recently
received reports that the grocery part
it Brunn's establishment was only a
bluff and that Brunn was selling Ore
water all ready to drink, a la saloon.
Now yon aren't supposed to sell
liquor in a grocery store except when
It's bottled, to be carried away. You
mustn't drink it in the store
When the Major received the com
plaints he went out on the job himself.
In hts auto. Arriving at Brunn's place
he viewed the wee supply of salmon
cans which was supposed to make the
place a grocery. He also viewed two
customers who had been drinking. One
protested that he merely had been
sampling some of Brunn's liquors with
a view to buying a supply for a Marsh
field saloon. But he couldn't give the
address of the saloon.
So at this morning's meeting of the
Council Mayor Albee will see that
Brunn's license Is revoked.
Now you know when a grocery isn't
a grocery.

populace that is said to be staring; them
in the face at present, regarding what

(Special.) Pioneer residents along the
boach say that a whale that came
ashore this morning at Cranberry Sta
tion, measuring 85 feet long, is the
fourth to be washed on the beach since
the region became a Summer resort.
The first was reported In 188S .and was
CO feet long. It came ashore on Kllp
san Beach. The second floated in the
Summer of 1893 and was more than 100
feet long. The skeleton was sent to
the Chicago World's Fair.
About 15 years ago another washed
on the beach at Seaview and a huge
bonfire was built around, it and the
carcass burned. Men who have been
along the Oregon coast recently report
that a 60-foot whale's carcass is on
the beach between Newport and Wald
port and another between Waldport
and Vachats.
Captain Z. J. Hatch Once Identified
With Stcamboating Here.
Portlanders of long residence have
been reminded of early steamboat days
through the receipt of word that Cap
tain Z. J. Hatch died Friday at San
Francisco. He was born at Montlcello,
X. Y., in 1846, and came to Portland In
1872, first being employed In the en
gineering department of the Northern
Pacific. In 1874 he waa employed by
Captain U. B. Scott and U B. iSeeley as
purser of the steamer Ohio, then new
and the first light draft carrier on the
Willamette. He obtained an interest
in the company the following year and
others In the corporation were S. H.
Brown and M. S. Burrell.
The company also built the City ot
Salem and Captain Hatch remained in
the line until 1879. After a year or
two he built the steamer Yaqulna, but
she was destroyed by fire the next
year. He also built the stern-wheel
steamer Coeur d'Alene when mining
excitement in the Coeur d'Alene district
ran high. On retiring from that un
dertaking he formed a partnership
with Frank K. Smith and built the
steamer Fleetwood, which he took to
Puget Sound and she ran there and he
retired when the Columbia River A
Puget Sound Navigation Company was
formed. He completed the Montlcello
in 1891.

that the defects will not interfere with

St. Helens Citizens Argue for Clian.'
ncl for Ships.
Commercial Interests of St. Helens
have proposed to the Federal author
ities that if steps are taken to dredge
a bar In front ot the entrance to Wil
lamette Slough to a depth of 27 feet,
so that deep draft vessels may be nav
igated there, a share of the expense
will be borne by them. The cost Is
estimated at $10,000. The length of the
dredged cut will be one mile.
In support ot the move it' Is asserted
that St. Helens has grown from a town
ot 300 population to a city of 2000 in
five years: that two sawmills cut 250,-
000 feet in ten hours; that a creosot
lng plant, shipyard and other estab
lishments are located there, while it Is
a distributing center for the Lake and
Lewis River territories. In a year, it
Is set forth, that 80.000,000 feet of lum
ber has been shipped from there and
144 steamers were dispatched with car
go. The matter was taken up with
United States Senator Chamberlain, re
ferred to General Blxby, chief ot en
gineers, and in turn to Major Mcln-
doe. Corps of Engineers, U. S. A., in
charge of the Second Oregon District

forward a report.
Examination of Bar Mill Decide
Dredging Question.
Before the first week In September
ends a crew from the force directed
by Major Mclndoe, Corps of Engineers,
IT. S. A., will be at work on the Co
lumbla River bar, making a second sur
vey this season to ascertain what ben
efits have been derived in the way of
depth from the operations of the
creoge cninook, which resumed work
there about June 19, after a year's
The survey will not be as complete
as that made each June, because the
annual investigation of depths includes
a large area inside the bar and on
both sides of the main channel, while
the forthcoming undertaking will be
centered on the bar and have to deal
largely with the ranges on which the
Chinook has dredged. At it was under
stood when the Chinook was returned
there that she would be in service
about three months to prove whether
tne cnannel would be helped by her
assistance, the survey is expected to
decide whether recommendations be
made to Washington that dredging be
continued in advance of the comple
tion of the north Jetty.
