FARM HEAVEN FORECAST
Promise Made That Development
"Will L-Iglit Every Banch of Zone
With Electricity Astoria
SPOKANE, Wash., Sept. 17. (Spe
cial.) Optimism looking to the not
distant days when steamers will ply
the Columbia River from its mouth
to British Columbia and on the inter
secting Snake River to and far beyond
Lewlston, Idaho, were features mark
ing the opening of the Columbia and
Enake River Waterways convention to
day. But even more interesting to many
of those in the audience were the
promises that with the development
resulting from opening of the Co
lumbia and Snake rivers will come the
development ot electric energy thai
will light all the homes in this vast
territory, that for more than 400 miles
along .the course of the Columbia in
Eastern Washington every farmhouse
will be lighted by electricity from
cellar to garret, that power will be
furnished to do the farm work and re
lieve farmers and housewives of the
cities and the towns of practically all
the drudgery that now is their lot.
Pioneer Captain at Helm.
Captain W. P. Gray, one of the
oldest steamboat men in the Northwest,
president of the Columbia and Snake
River Waterways Association, presided.
At the morning session Mayor Hind
ley welcomed the delegates to the city
and lauded the project they are advo
cating. Gordon C. Corbaley, secretary
manager of the Chamber of Commerce,
represented President Thomas S. Grif
fith in extending the greetings of Spo
kane to the assembly. F. J. Welch,
engineer of the Port of Astoria, read
the principal paper at the morning ses
sion. His theme was "Open River Serv
ice Mrom the Mouth of the' Columbia
to the Interior."
Governor Lister was vociferously ap
plauded because of his enthusiasm over
the open rivers project. Other speakers
at the afternoon session were R. C.
Beach, president of the Idaho State
League of Commercial Bodies, who
dwelt on "Columbia and Snake River
Improvements Not in the Pork Barrel
Class;" N. W. Durham, of Spokane, who
spoke on "The Effect of the Adamson
Bill of Hydro-Electric Development of
Northwestern Rivers," and Charles E.
Warner, an engineer, of Portland,
whose topic was "Practical Uses of
Astoria Sends Throng.
There was no evening session, the
delegates taking part in the banquet
attending the opening of the new
Astoria sent the largest delegation to
the meeting. Their literature boosting
the project was distributed and their
banners were posted about the room.
In his address Chairman. W. P. Gray
eaid in part:
"We are interested in deepening the
channel of the rivers to the head ot
tidewater so that ocean cargo carriers
can come and go without delay; in com
pleting the Celilo Canal, so that steam
boats and barges may ply to the heart
of the Inland Empire; in the improve
ment of the Upper Columbia to eKttle
Falls, and bring about the canalization
of the Snake River from its mouth to
Lewiston. We are also interested in
the development of hydro-electric power
and good roads on land as adjuncts to
navigable rivers. We hope the citi
zens of your city will assist us."
Progress of Navigation Cited.
Engineer F. J. Welch, of Astoria,
gave a history of the development of
navigation on the Columbia from the
establishment of the Astoria trading
post at the mouth of the river in 1811
to the present. He told, of the prog
ress of work on the locks in the river
from the time such work was started
88 years ago until now. He called at
tention to the fact that with river de
velopment freight rates from Portland
to The Dalles have been reduced to 2.
He told of the reductions that had
been made by the Northern Pacific
from Pasco to the Coast and said the
O.-W. R. &N. Co. had made general
reductions to all river points.
Mr. Welch said he was not against
the railroads, but that there is room
for both the railroads and the open
river business.. He, pointed to the
.great territory to be served by open
rivers as another reason for far
greater expenditures in the opening of
Power Spread Predicted.
Charles E. Warner, consulting en
gineer of Portland, said that while
electric power is now transmitted 250
miles, in a few more years it will be
transmitted 1000 miles or more; that a
plant at Pasco would bo able to sup
ply power to Boise, Astoria, Belling
ham, or Victoria, B. C; that the great
est hydro-electric system in the United
States Is in Spokane; that in Oregon,
Washington, Idaho and Montana near
ly as much waterpower already has
been developed as in New England,
and that in these states there is al
ready developed a great deal more
hydro-electric power than in all New
England; that in Colorado, Texas and
California Irrigation by pumping has
, developed rapidly and that there is a
great field for such development In
this section of the country.
T. Waldo Murphy, of Edendale, said
that while it had been estimated it
would cost from $50,000,000 to $75 000 -000
to open the Columbia from Celilo
to British Columbia, the project would
develop enough power to operate all
the factories in the West, and would
heat and light every house in the ter
ritory. Savins for Farmer Seen.
W. W. Harrah, of Pendleton, a
wheat farmer, declared that the power
to be developed by opening the river
could also be utilized so as to eive
cheap rates for handling grain by the
operation of mechanical contrivances.
whereas under the present system it
costs the Western farmer about 20
cents a bushel more to handle his
grain than it costs the Eastern farmer.
N. W. Durham called attention to the
great possibilities of the oDenlni? and
development of these rivers to result
from the accompanying development of
power. He analyzed the Adamson bill
and showed how it would Interest cap
ital in the development of the water
ways by giving a return on the in
vestment and said that there seemd no
longer opposition to permitting mirh
invested capital to have franchises for

OFFICIALS TAKE NO ACTION
Two Commissioners Recall That
Subject Lost When Put to Popu
lar Vote System Declared
. to Chase Investors Away.
Whether boycott banners as paraded
before a number of business houses of
the city are to be forced off the streets
is an issue before the City Commission.
About 200 business men and others
appeared before the Commission yes
terday and entered protest against -the
practice. The complaint of the business
men that boycott banners are a dis
grace to the city and a detriment to
capital and labor were concurred in
by a number of workingmen, who
spoke. Although a large number of
representatives of organized labor at
tended the meeting, none spoke In fa
vor of the boycott signs. Frank Cady
and Tom Bowen, soapbox orators, who
are said not to be members of local
unions, defended the boycott-banner
Two Would Put It to ' Vote.
Only two Commissioners expressed
their views on the subject Commis
sioner Daly said he believed it should
be decided by the people and not by
the City Council, and Commissioner
Brewster said he believed also that
popular vote might be the test way to
settle the question. It is probable that
a proposed ordinance will be submitted
to the Council and that an opportunity
will be given opponents of the measure
to invoke the referendum. If this
course la not adopted those wanting
the boycott banners removed may ask
the Commission to adopt an initiative
measure for submission to the voters
or the question may be put up to the
voters by initiative petition.
The delegation of business men was
led by Thomas McCusker, who cited
the La Grande Creamery Company as
one of the concerns being persecuted by
the boycott system employed by the
Central Labor Council.
Courts Deemed Ponrrleim.
"It's a persecution which cannot be
coped with in the courts," said Mr. Mc
Cusker, "and the Council should take
steps to do away with it by ordinance.
It's a case of one class infringing upon
the rights of another."
"They are threatening to boycott my
place," said W. Margulis, "because 1
employ nonunion counter boys in my
nickel eating-house. If I should pay
their prices it would put me out of
business. I am trying to do some good
for the unemployed for the down-and-out
laborer yet they Interfere."
"The question of boycott banners has
been before the trustees of the Cham
ber of Commerce several times," said
A. H. Averill. "We have decided that
some action should be taken, as it has
caused much criticism of our city."
Investors Scared, la Plaint.
"Labor -unions are standing in their
own light," said J. Fred Larsen. "Re
cently I talked to persons who wanted
to start in business here. I was show
ing them around and they spotted one
of those boycott banners. I explained,
but It did no good. They went else
where. That deprived the city of
money and it deprived laboring people
"These banners." said H. D. Rams
dell," are distasteful to persons coming
here to Invest I am here to protest in
the name of the Commercial Club and
in the name of Llpman, Wolfe & Co.
As to the company, I will say I do not
know whether the boycott banner has
hurt our business or not I do know
that our business has Increased greatly
in the last year In spite of the banner
they have had in front of our store. 1
do not know why the banner is there."
Banners Deemed Unfair.
"I believe the majority of union men
do not favor the boycott banner," said
W. B. Mackay. "They are not fair and
they do much harm to the city."
Commissioner Daly declared that four
years ago a measure against picket
ing and boycott algcs was passed by
the Council and referred to the voters
and the measure was voted down. The
same thing, he said, happened to a sim
ilar state-wide measure.
"Conditions have changed In four
years," said Mr. McCusker.. "I believe
the people now would vote against
No- action was taken by the Commis
sion. It la probable the subject will
come up again in ordinance form
within a few days.

tracts held by the settlers, and reduc
ing their water supply from three and
seven-tenths acre feet to two feet
The proposition today, as made by
Mr. Wattis, is substantially as follows:
The Utah Construction Company will

conditioned upon the acceptance of a
new contract on the part of the settlers
calling for delivery to them of two
acre feet of water instead of three
and seven-tenths acre . feet The com
pany would use all surplus water for
the irrigation of additional lands, and
agrees to the creation of a board for
