Credit for Coos Bay Increase
Implies Consent to Vari
EXPLANATION NOT MADE
Senate Amendments for Which
Chamberlain Says He Was -Responsible
Ignored by Secretary
of War In Allotments.
OREGOSIAN $TEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington. Oct. 21. Senator Chamberlain
Is sending circular letters to commer
cial bodies and leaxLing citizens of the
Coos Bay country, claiming credit for
having secured the allotment of 970.000
Xor the improvement of Coos Bay.
which amount is $20,000 greater than
was appropriated for Coos Bay in the
river and harbor bill which met defeat
In the Senate.
The fact that the amount allotted to
Coos Bay was greater than the amount
proposed to be appropriated by Con
gress is due to the fact that the river
and harbor board of engineers, being
thoroughly familiar with the situation
at Coos Bay, recommended an allot
ment of $70,000 and the Secretary of
War approved the recommendation of
Previous Opportunity Nesrlected.
As the river and harbor bill passed
the House of Representatives last April
It carried $50,000 for Coos Bay, that
item having been inserted in the bill
after Representative Hawley had ap
peared before the river and harbor com
mittee and urged the appropriation of
that amount. When the bill went to the
Senate, Senator Chamberlain was act
ing chairman of the subcommittee
which redrafted the bill, but notwith
standing his advantageous position, and
at a time when he could undlsputably
have claimed credit for any Increase,
Senator Chamberlain did not have the
appropriation increased, but consented
to the House provision of $50,000. In
reporting the river and harbor bill to
the Senate, Senator Chamberlain prob
ably could have secured an increase in
the Coos Bay appropriation to $70,000,
and had such increase been authorized
the Senator could well have claimed
He did not get the Increase at that
time, and, having overlooked the oppor
tunity, when he had it in his power
to get an additional $20,000, he now
claims the credit for an increase that
was made on the recommendation of
the Army Engineer Corps.
Senator Iffiiorei Nehalem Bay.
In this connection, however, it is in
teresting to note that while Senator
Chamberlain claims credit for having
secured an increase of $20,000 for
Coos Bay, he has nothing to say about
the failure of the War Department to
make any allotment whatever for Ne-
halem Bay, for which Representative
Hawley had secured an appropriation
of $116,175 in the river and harbor
bill at the time it passed the House.
Nor does the Senator explain why no
funds were allotted for the Siuslaw
River, for which an appropriation of
$112,500 was made by the river and
harbor bill, as reported to the Senate.
At the time the river and harbor bill
passed the House the report of the
engineers on the Siuslaw had not been
received at Washington and the House,
therefore, refused to incorporate any
appropriation for that river in its bill.
The engineers' report, however, was
sent to Congress while the bill was in
the hands of Senator Chamberlain's
subcommittee, and the Senator secured
the adoption of an amendment ap
proiating $112,500, in accordance with
the recommendation of the War De
partment. Appropriate Question Asked.
The question pertinently arises: If
Senator Chamberlain was able to In
duce the War Department to increase
the allotment for Coos Bay from $50,
000 to $70,000, why did he not get some
allotment for the Siuslaw River, for
which he had secured $112,500 in the
river and harbor bill, which failed? In
the case of Coos Bay, according to the
Senator's claims, he secured an allot
ment $20,000 in excess of the original
recommendation of the engineers. In
the case of the Siuslaw he failed to se
cure any allotment whatever, though
the War Department, earlier in the
session, had -recommended an appro
priation of $112,500.
furthermore, the War Department
allotted only $200,000 for the Willam
ette and Columbia rivers between Port
land and the sea, whereas the river
and harbor bill, as it passed the House,
appropriated $300,000. In this instance
the Senator evidently did not put forth
much effort, for while the engineers
agreed to allot $1,000,000 for the
mouth of the Columbia, the amount
provided in the river and harbor bill
as It passed the House, they reduced
the Willamette and Columbia appor
tionment $100,000 and evidently with
the knowledge of Senator Chamberlain.
There was great need for Improving
the channel below Portland with all
possible expedition, especially in view
of the delays incident to the hold-up
of the river and harbor bill, but on that
project Senator Chamberlain, accord
ing to his contention, must have con
sented to a reduction of $100,000, while
Betting an increase of $20,000 for Coos
Senate Amendment 'eKlected.
Moreover, it is found that the Sen
ator must have assented to the elim
ination of $80,000 to complete the pur
chase of the Willamette locks, $10,000
for the Columbia at Cascades, $.1000 for
loos River and $1000 for the Clatska
liie. All these amounts were appro,
priated by the House river and harbor
hill, but none of these projects received
allotments from the engineers or the
Secretary of War. If Senator' Cham
berlain is responsible for the JJO.000
increase at Coos Bay, he will have to
explain why he consented to the elim
ination or reduction of allotments for
the other projects named.
It is striking to note that the Sec
retary of War made allotments only
to projects for which appropriations
were proposed in the House river and
harbor bill. No allotments were made
for, projects provided for in Senate
amendments amendments for which
Senator Chamberlain claimed credit.
