the committee. State Representative
Lofgren and ' County Commissioner
It was decided that Multnomah Coun
ty should vote 1. 250.000 in bonds,
$500,000 to be used in a filled roadway
for a permanent approch and the bal
ance for the bridge proper. Although
Commissioners Hart and Holman ex
pressed their willingness to call a spe

it was decided to petition for it. Only

portunity of getting some degree of
popular expression on the proposed

of this method of procedure.
. Width to Be 24 Feet.
The bridge will be 24 feet in width.
Originally a 38-foot bridge was talked
of. at an estimated cost of $2,000,000.
The lesser width will enable the struc
ture to be built, however, for about
It has been decided that there should
be two approaches, one on Union ave
nue leading to the heart of the city
and the other on Patton avenue, lead
ing to the Peninsula district These
would merge in a single roadway long
before reaching the 12,000 feet of
slough bottom near Hayden Island. At
present it costs Multnomah County
nearly $40,000 a year to maintain the
wooden trestle across the slough,
whereas the filled roadway would be
permanent and would pay for itself In
a dozen years or so.
The Interstate bridge committee
members, or such of them as are in
the city, probably will hold a meeting
with the County Commissioners this
afternoon to discuss further details.
Speaking of the bridge last night, W.
L. Boise, of the committee, said;
"It would be a great beneflt to Mult
nomah County, as it would make Clarke
County practically a suburb and bring
us in close touch with Southwestern
Washington, not to mention an impor
tant connecting link of the Pacific
Highway. It would give Clark County
and surrounding territory a bigger and
more accessible market and better
transportation. The standing of Port
land and Vancouver as a harbor would
be Immensely -Jielped.

"As soon as Uie Celllo Canal la fin

be in a better position to demand as
sistance from the State of Washington
in that project. Clarke County voted
$500,000 in bonds on an assessment of
$14,000,000. If we voted $10,000,000 it
would not be more than half as great
a burden upon us. considering the rela

"Clark County has voted for a toll
bridge and we shVuld have to do the
same. As such the structure would be
self-supporting. Another thing to re
member Is that we would more than
make the price of the bridge back al
most immediately in increased value of
realty. I realize- that the people here
have net taken kindly to bond issues of
late, but this is a different thing. It is
one of the biggest and most necessary

CAREY ACT CRITICISED
GOVERNOR WEST SAYS RESULT
State and Federal Co-operative Rec
lamation Work X'rged On
SALEM. Or., Aug. 19. (Special.)
"The Carey-irrigation act has not pro
duced the results its friends antici
pated," said Governor West, who re
turned today from Eastern Oregon,
where, he, with Secretary of the Inte
rior Lane, made an investlgtaion of Ir
rigation work. "If the arid lands of
the state are to be reclaimed at a rea
sonable cost, the work must be done
by the state or Federal Government or
through their co-operation.
"Secretary Lane was shown the irri
gation possibilities of the eastern part
of the state. He was shown over the
Central Oregon irrigation project and
the Madras country. This is a. large
district which the state and Federal
governments plan reclaiming.
"I became convinced during the In
vestigation, and so told Secretary Lane,
that the Carey act projects could not
be completed properly, except by the
state or Federal Government or
through the co-operation of both.
"Our irrigation projects are so targe
and difficult that private concerns will
not undertake them unless they are
convinced enormous profits can be
made. This would work hardships on
the settlers that ought to "be avoided.
"The Tumalo project, formerly the
Columbia Southern, which is now in
charge of the state, will prove that the
plan to have the -work done by the
state of Federal Government is the
"The Government appropriates mon
ey for the improvement of the water
ways which is good" for all the people.
I see no reason why money should not
be appropriated for improving land,
which is now useless, which would be
good for all the people. It makes the
Btate bigger from a productive point of
view and aids everybody in proportion.
I think the state would benefit from
the reclamation of land more than from
the improvement of waterways."

HOOD RIVER GIVES HELP
Merchants Demand Better Accom

Hood River, Or.. August 19. (Spe
cial.) The City Council took action
last night at the instigation ot the
Retail Merchants' League that will
lead toward more convenient and com
fortable means of travel for the east
side orchardlsts who come here to shop
with the Hood River merchants.
The merchants called the attention of
the Council to the fact that two blocks
of State street, over which tne orc'iard
lsts would have to travel, had not been
paved nor hard-surfaced, although the
rest .of. the business streets had re
ceived a surfacing of Hassarn concrete.
This stretch would have become muddy
during the Winter months, and the
merchants asked it improved.
On the report of the street commit
tee it was recommended that a board
walk be built from the O.-W. R. & N.
Station to the Underwood Ferry land
ing for the accommodation of the citi
zens of that district across the Co
lumbia. TRAIN OF LOGS RUNS WILD

track when they reached the wagon
crossing on the main road to the har
bor. Monster logs were piled high in
every direction, barricading the road.
To get around the wreck it was nec
essary for the auto men to go back
some distance and go on the Grays

way for a considerable distance. About
a dozen automobiles were put across

"Weeding out" is a proposition that has
been started by the city council ot Sa

of its members if it can help it. al
though recall petitions are being circu

proposition embraced in an ordinance
Introduced last night is that property
owners must remove all noxious
growths in the parking in front ot
their premises. It is believed by the
council that Salem can be made a much
prettier city than it is. The ordinance
provides that property owners who- fail
to have weeds in front of their prop

work which will be done by the strett
"Won't the people cut the weeds in
