OREGONIAN KEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, Oct. 21. After several year of
fruitless negotiation with private own
ers of land in the proposed Umatilla
Meadows reservoir site, which was to
have been acquired by -the -Ooveraroent
as part of the West Umatilla irrigation
project, the Reclamation Service, with
the concurrence of Secretary Lane, has
abandoned plans lor the acquisition
and construction of that reservoir and
has so notified all land owners.
Abandonment of this reservoir, it is
explained by the Reclamation Service,
is due entirely to the fact that owners
hold their land at what is considered
an exorbitant price, which the Gov
ernment eannot afford to pay. For a
time it was thought advisable to ac
quire this site by condemnation, but
Director Newell and Engineer Hopson
recommended against condemnation
and on their recommendation the Gov
ernment decided to abandon this reser
lrrisB Site ReOBjiiesde4.
Messrs. Newell and Hopson. however,
have reported that the Government can
acquire another reservoir site near Ir
rigon. quite as satisfactory as that
which has been abandoned, if the Gov
ernment decides to go ahead with the
main portion of the West Umatilla
Members of the Reclamation Com'
mission assert that abandonment of .he
Umatilla meadows reservoir site does
not mean abandonment of the ' West
Umatilla project. On the contrary,
they assert that work Is under way at
this time on the first or gravity unit
of the West Side extension and that
they have recommended the allotment
of $138,000 to be spent the first bix
months of next year in-building the
laterals and distribution system of this
unit. The commission also has rec
ommended that Congress, in making
the apportionment for the year be
ginning July next, as authorized in
the new law, appropriate $276,000 ad
ditional to be expended largely on the
main canal of the first West Side unit.

These sums, it is pointed out, will
keep work under way at a fair rate
of progress lor tne next is moDim.
Up to the present time the Secretary
of the Interior has never formally ap
Droved the main part of the West
Umatilla project, but only, the first
unit, which is now being built. Be
cause of difficulties encountered with
private land owners on the original
Umatilla project and difficulties en
countered by the settlers themselves In
brinsrinfr the lands under cultivation
the department deems it wise-to pro
ceed cautiously witn tne storage or
main section of the West Umatilla
project and formal approval of that
project probably will be delayed until
the first unit proves successful and
there is reasonable assurance that so,-
000 acres -of the main project can be
reclaimed at a cost which settlers can
afford to pay.
The commission points out that if the
Government had acquired the Umatilla

by land owners, the per acre cost of
West Umatilla project would have been
greater than settlers could pay and it
'was primarily for this reason that res
ervoir was abandoned.
"It is true that the proposed reservoir
for the West Umatilla irrigation project
has been abandoned, but the project it
self is being put forward without in
terruption," said E. G. Hopson, super
vising engineer of the United States
Reclamation Service, with offices in

District Attorney Smith made this
announcement at the close of a day
spent in drawing from a score of wit
nesses a chain of preliminary circum
stantial evidence by which he hopes to
link Mrs. carman directly with the com
mission of the crime.
Many of today's witnesses were called
to establish the alleged motive jeal
ousy. One was Mrs. Elizabeth Varance,
a trained nurse, whose face Mrs. Car
man slapped when she saw Dr. Carman
give her money and allow her to' kiss
him, it was testified. Another was Gas
ton Boissanault. ex-chief of the Cana
dian secret service, and now manager
at the company that sold the wife of
the physician a "mechanical eaves
dropper" so she might hear what went
on in her husband's private office when
women patients were, there.
A new fact was developed which the
prosecution seemed to consider signifi
cant. Physicians who performed the
autopsy on the victim of the tragedy
in the doctor's office testified that slie
would have become a mother had she
lived. . - -
The state's two star witnesses will
testify tomorrow: One is Celia Cole

Frank Farrell, an unemployed engi
neer. Celia Coleman's story as told to
the grand jury was materially different
from the one she told at the inquest.
wnen her memory was faulty. The
story she is expected to tell tomorrow
is the one she related to the grand jury.
FarrelPs story is to the effect that
he was at the back door of the Carman
house at the time of the shooting. He
is quoted as saying he saw Mrs. Car
man run into the house from the side
yard jUrectly after he heard the crash
of breaking glass and the report of a
revolver shot. ....

of the strain she is under, but during

To the voters:
Things look brighter to me than for
four yeara. I expect a complete
victory at the election.
When you first elected me lour
years ago I promised to serve the
public as against the greed of special
privilege- It was a simple promise,
but it has been kept. I promised to
use the power of the office to compel
enforcement of the railroad land grant
law, which was plain, and I have done
bo. The case is now in the Supreme
Court and will soon be decided in its
finality. As to how I could otherwise
serve the people I only knew in a
general way then, but now I can
specify. Then I only knew generally
that things were not right, but I could
not place my finger on the leaks, the
grafts and the frauds.- You put me in
your -vineyard for four years, and I
have worked and uncovered the things
that are wrong and am able to point
tbem out, and I have done so. My
continuance in office now would mean
that these things will be righted by the
National Legislature. My defeat would
be a warning to others not to serve
Mr. McArthur and I represent the
very opposites and have from the start.
The newspapers gave false testimony
pending the primary and kept me from
the regular nomination of my party.
They told you I was disreputable, and
a disgrace to 'the state, and that you
should retire me for that reason. They
knew that was not so, and many . of
you did not know it- A more monu
mental fraud was never perpetrated on
the electorate of any district. And
now that I have challenged them to
specify, and they have failed, but
stand before you self convicted, they
ask you to ratify that fraud by voting
against me a week from next Tues
day. I had as much right to appeal
from a primary decision rendered upon
false testimony as any person has to
appeal from a court of first instance
to the supreme court, where he can
show fraud or false swearing. I am
