STATE MUST ACT TO
Allotment of $450,000 by Gov
ernment Not Available Until
Like Sum Is Provided.
RULE MADE BY MR. LANE
Any Project TJndertaken Must Be
Constructed as Unit, in Co-operation,
With Federal Engi-
neers in Direct Charge.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, Nov. 30 Until the Oregon Leg
islature appropriates not leas than
S450.OO0. to be used jointly with a like
amount of Federal money. Secretary
Lane and the Reclamation Service will
take no steps toward the construction
of a co-operative irrigation project in
Central Oregon, and until the state
Tunes are available the money hereto
tore allotted by Secretary Lane for co
operative work will remain In the rec
lamation fund untouched.
Nearly a year ago, at the request of
Governor West, Secretary Lane de
cided to enter upon the construction of
some irrigation project in Central Ore
Kon in co-operation with the State of
Oregon, and tentatively allotted $450,
000 as the Government's share of the
cost of the project to be built, but he
stipulated then that the Government
money could not be used until a like
amount had actually been contributed
by the state. The state had no money
available for such use, and cannot have
until the Legislature makes an appro
priation, and therefore the allotment
made by Secretary Lane has been un
touched. That allotment will lapse on Decem
ber 31, but Secretary Lane will reallot
the $450,000 conditionally, and will
await action by the Oregon Legislature
at Its coming session. If the Legisla
ture appropriates $450,000, and if that
amount is turned over by the state to
the Secretary of the Interior, then some
project will be decided upon, and work
will be begun soon after the joint fund
becomes available, but until the Leg
islature makes this appropriation. Sec
retary Lane will not so much as desig
nate the project which he will be will
ing to build, in conjunction with the
Under the terms of the agreement
with the state, this co-operative project
must be built by the Reclamation Serv
ice, but the State Engineer will be ex
pected to co-operate, both in deciding
ipon the project to be built, and in
laying out the project, and carrying
forward the work of construction. Re
sponsibility for construction, however,
will rest on the Reclamation Service,
and Government engineers will be in
If the Legislature, at its coming ses
sion, fails to make an appropriation of
$450,000 or more, then the allotment
made by Secretary Lane, will be re
voked, and the $450,000 of Federal
money will revert to the reclamation
fund, to be used on other projects.
The Secretary will insist that the
project, whatever it may be. shall be
built as a unit, and be built under a

Appropriation or 1913 Declared
l'uinilment or Obligation.
Those who have been connected with
irrigation work in Oregon intimate that
Secretary of Interior Lane is not act
ing fairly in connection with the ap
propriation of $450,000 for irrigation
work in Oregon. They assert that the
1913 Oregon Legislature in appropriat
ing $450,000 tp carry out the Tumalo
project made Oregon eligible for the
expenditure of the $450,000 by the Gov
ernment, and that Oregon should not be
required to appropriate an additional
Oregon was the first' state in the
Union to take advantage of the under
standing that the Government would
match any appropriation made by the
etate for irrigation work.
"As I undertsand the situation Ore
iron has fulfilled her obligations al
ready by appropriating $450,000 to
finance the Tumalo irrigation project,"
eaid J. N. Teal, chairman of the Oregon
Conservation Congress, yesterday. "The
Department of the Interior set apart
$450,000 for co-operative work then
contemplated in Oregon. This was done
. in March, 1913, and my understanding
is that this was meant to match the
$450,000 appropriated by the fctate. Just'
as the Government appropriated $50,000
and the state $50,000 ' to survey the
Deschutes territory relative to a pro
"The whole thing in 'a nutshell is
that the Department at Washington is
pretty hard up and wants to get out
nf this obligation by contending that
Oregon must donate another $450,000
if she is to get the benefit oZ the $450,
000 already set aside by the Govern
ment for expenditure in Oregon," said
C. C. Chapman, secretary of the Oregon
"The whole thing may be solved by
reference to a letter written by Direc
tor Newell In March. 1913, and ap
proved by Secretary Lane in June, 1913.
These recommendations, copies of which
we have in Portland, clearly show that
the $450,000 Is already aue Oregon.
When Secretary Lane was in Oregon in
August, 1913, he told the people of the
Deschutes country that the $450,000
was to be spent in Oregon by the Gov
ernment. Now to say that Oregon must
put up another $450,000 before the Gov
ernment money is available Is ridicu
lous. "So long as we talk about the possi
bility of getting a $450,000 appropria
tion through the coming Oregon Legis
lature we will lose out, for we all
know that such a thrng would be Im
possible at this time when everyone is
crying economy. The promise has been
made to us and it is up to us to see
that it is fulfilled. We have already
spent our money on the Tumalo project,
and the Government is morally in Ore
gon's debt not only for the $450,000
that has already been set aside, but for
millions more that have rightly be
longed to us.
"The allotment of the $450,000 to use
in Oregon was based on the findings to
be reported on the survey of the Des
chutes country. This report has just
been finished, so that the Government
could not have spent the $450,000 in
Oregon until this time.'
Mr. Teal said yesterday that Oregon's
Senators In Washington should ask that
the original promises be carried out, or
else give up all hope of ever receiving
the benefits of the appropriated $450,
000, in view of the small likelihood that
the Oregon Legislature can be induced
to make another $450,000 appropriation
at this time.

LONDON, Nov. 20. (Correspondence
of the Associated Press.) Every day
the demand In London for a stricter
regulation of the sale of liquor during
the war becomes more Insistent. Mili
tary authorities are disgusted with the
drunkenness of soldiers brought about
by the disposition of civilians to treat
all men in uniform.
Lord Kitchener has issued many pro
tests against the -treating of his sol
diers, but without the desired results.
Even the closing of the public nouses
at 10 o'clock at night has not cured
the evil and stricter regulations seem
The increase of drunkenness among
women, especially among women whose
husbands have entered the service, has
fallen under the observation of social
workers in all parts of London and
many delegations of prominent women
have appeared before licensing justices
in an effort to check this practice by
regulation of some sort.
The Duchess of Marlborough, Lady
Byles, Mrs. McKenna, Mrs. James Gow
and many other prominent women com
posed a delegation which recently vis
ited Mr. McKenna at the Home Office
and asked his assistance in battling
the wave of alcoholism among women.
Lady- Byles, who presented the dele
gation, explained that they represented
different opinions, socially and polit
ically, but were unanimous in their
opinion that the government should
take Immediate steps to check drink
ing among the women.
Mr. McKenna replied that it would
require a new act of Parliament to
enable him to curtail the hours of
liquor selling further. He promised to
submit the suggestion to the House.
In his last days Lord Roberts made
this appeal to the public to cease
tempting the soldiers with liquor:
"I feel it is my duty to point out
to the civil population that putting
temptation in the way of our soldiers
by injudiciously treating them to drink
is injurious to them and prejudicial to
our chances of victory
