Crook County Delegation to
Press Demand for $450,000
: Irrigation Appropriation.
REVOLVING FUND IS OBJECT
Indorsement of Congress In Port
land to Be Sought and 130 Citi
zens Will Descend on Legis
lature to Press Itequest.
Old General Eke O'Nomical is in for
solar plexus blow at the hands of
the next Legislature if some of the
leading irrigrationlsts of Central Oregon
have their way about it.
Members of the Legislature who have
been nursing- the veteran tightwad
along ever since the election hoping
that he would survive the expected
raids at the state capital, were dis
mayed yesterday when they learned
that Crook County and other interior
districts are preparing to send a dele
gation of 150 representative citizens to
Portland for the Irrigation Congress the
first week in January and to the open
ing session of the Legislature in Salem
the following week, for the express pur
pose of urging an appropriation of at
least $450,000 for- irrigation develop
ment. Ever since the election "economy"
has been the favorite watchword of
legislators-elect. Whenever any citi
zen approached one of them with a
proposal for procuring some of the
' state's funds for some purpose always
in the interests of "the people" they
would answer with the one word,
General Eke O'Nomical up to this
time has seemed the most popular old
fellow in the state. No member of the
Legislature had a monopoly on his com
panionship. But now comes along this
Central Oregon crowd and proposes to
push the venerable General aside very
disrespectful like, and ask for some
lavish appropriations, regardless of his
The first round will be fought at the
irrigation meeting, which will be a
mere preliminary to the legislative ses
sion. The irrigationists will hold forth
at the Imperial Hotel, Portland, on
January 7. 8 and 9. The Legislature
opens at Salem on January 11.
An 'effort will be made to have the
Irrigation Congress adopt a, resolution
favoring an appropriation from the
Legislature for Central Oregon develop
ment to be performed in conjunction
with the Federal Government.
Whether or not the Federal authori
ties decide to match the $450,000 al
ready expended by the state in the
Tumalo project, the Central Oregon
irrigators want another state appropri
ation for additional work.
It is probable that they will ask that
the $450,000 already spent shall be re
turned to the state treasury, from
whence it came, as soon as settlers on
the Tumalo tract begin making their
But it is understood that they wil)
aim to have the appropriation they
now are seeking become the basis of
a., revolving fund to be used perpetual
ly for additional reclamation work.
It is apparent, too, that the plan of
the Central Oregon people will meet
with se'rious opposition both in the
irrigation meeting and in the Legisla
ture. ..Governor-elect Withycombe arrived
in town yesterday morning, visited his
brother for a few hours, had a confer
ence with a number of friends, and
left the city before any Job hunters
were aware of his presence.
He left about 2 o'clock for -Salem,
but it was not until after that hour
that the word was passed around that
he was in town. There was a rush to
the Imperial Hotel, where the Governor
elect generally stops when he comes
to town, but the only consolation for
the job-hungry crowd was the knowl
edge that Dr. Withycombe had been
there a little earlier in the day and
that he would return to Portland prob
ably once or twice before he takes of
fice next month.
A bill providing for the creation of
the oltice of public defender in each
county of the state will be submitted
to the next Legislature. Such a meas
ure now is in course of preparation by
a Portland attorney and probably will
be submitted through a member of the

County legislators at their meeting
next Monday evening to present a bill
that will give the Governor power to
remove all appointive officers in the
state government "for cause."
. This proposal was submitted to the
legislators last Monday in a letter, and
a secret meeting was hinted at, but the
delegation instructed the county com
mittee to appear in the regular manner
at a public meeting and present Its bill
in completed form. Just what Is meant

made apparent and some of the legis
lators want enlightenment on this

lature threatens to cut off entirely is

acknowledged the message. Arlington
in turn conveyed the news to the shores
of the Atlantic and to ships far out to
sea on the Atlantic Ocean.

signal of the Isthmian, and after Point

far-away Hawaii of the news of the
The Isthmian got away from Port
land November 30 with close to 300 tons
of cargo, the most important consign
ment being hops, canned salmon and
dried fruit, with considerable general
freight. The vessel proceeded to Puget
Sound to unload New York cargo and
reload for the same destination and en
route for the canal completed loading
at California ports.
C. D. Kenendy, Portland agent, had
not received official information late
last night regarding the accident.
Wireless Stations Closed.
At 10:30 o'clock Rear Admiral T. B.
Howard, commander-in-chief of the
United States Pacific fleet, ordered
every commercial and naval . wireless
station on the Pacific Coast to cease
operations with the exception of the
stations at Point Loma and aboard the
cruiser West Virginia until it was as
certained whether the Isthmian would
survive her injuries. The Point Loma
and West Virginia statiens were in
communication every 10 Xninutes.
Captain Ryer reported- that the after
hatches were still dry and that the
ship was again making slight headway.
This is the first time in the history
of radio telegraphy where an order has
been issued cldsing all stations while
the fate of a distressed steamer hung
in the balance.
Cargo from here was not loaded in
any one compartment, so some of it
might have been stowed in No. 1 hold,
which is said to be full of water. The
Isthmian was turned out in 1908 and
lias been operating here regularly since
the company, established its service via
the Panama Canal.

yesterday were to the effect that the
Norwegian bark Nordhav. which put
into Montevideo a few days ago in a

Captain W. K. Jones, of The Dalles

last night from Marrjr Lofgrren, agent
for the line at The Dalles, sarins; that

Striking what rivermen refer to as
Dalles City rock, just auove Carson, on
the Washington side of the Middle Co
lumbia, the steamer Stranger, one of
the best-known propellers on the river,
sank yesterday afternoon and is lying
about half submerged. Captain Archie
Geer managed to get passengers ashore
and they were sent here on the Dalles
City, arriving last night.
The Stranger had been dispatched to
the Cascade Locks from ' Portland to
assist the steamer State of Washing
ton. The latter tied up at Bonneville
because of difficulties being experi
enced by the larger vessels in getting
through the Cascade Locks, and the
Stranger went to The Dalles. She was
returning downstream yesterday when
she piled up.
The rock is well away from shore
and submerged, and, while its location
is known to rivermen, the howling
gale that has been on there during the
prevailing cold spell or pressure of Ice
is thought to have set the vessel
against the obstruction. The rock was
dubbed Dalles City rock because the
steamer Dalles City struck it and sank
there about two years ago.
' The Stranger was looked for at the
Cascade Locks "to go through, and ow
ing to the fact serious trouble is b'eing
contended with at the headgate of the
hydraulic line from which power is
obtained to operate the lock gates, the
steamer Dalles City was held there tor
two hours so the Stranger could pass
at the same time, there being Insuffi
cient water in the reservoir to lock the
steamers through separately. The La
Crosse, operated by the Cascade Locks
Lumber Company, went to the assist
ance of the Stranger.
The Stranger was built in 1903 and
is of 85 gross tons and 51 tons net
register. She is 73.6 feet long, with a
beam of 17.7 feet and 6 feet depth of
Keeper Tompkins, of the Cascade
Locks, reported by telephone last night
that there was no Improvement in the
flow of water from the intake to the
reservoir. From the office of Major
Morrow, Corps of Engineers, United
States Army, which has supervision
over the locks, nejtice was given all
steamboat lines yesterday that the
locks might be closed to navigation
at any time if present weather condi
tions continued. It was advised that
before vessels leave Portland that Mr.
Tompkins be communicated with to be
sure the plant could be operated.
Ice has been forming above the. Cas
cades and is-, being carried into the
canal, so the gates may be blocked. No
reports of trouble were received from
The Dalles-Celilo Canal, though it was
made known that ice is forming there.
At the Cascade Locks Wednesday and
Thursday nights the temperature is
said to have been 19 above zero, accom
panied by a howling gale.

Dumping about 50 tons of ashes in
the river, October 9, at a point alleged
to be 150 feet north of the St. Johns
bridge, on the Spokane, Portland &
Seattle Railroad, and approximately 40
feet from the shore, is an accusation
on which the gasoline launch Standard
was seized last night by Deputy United
States Marshal Leonard Becker, in con
nection with a libel filed by Assistant
United States District Attorney Rankin.
' The Standard is said to have been
used to tow a barge on which the ashes
were carried, and that the load was
dumped under the direction of some
person or persons in the launch. A
Federal statute governing the dumping
of debris in a navigable stream pro

LIJCEU HAS " SMOOTH VOYAGE
Steamer Goes South Decorated With
Oregon Christmas Trees.
Continued easterly wind has smoothed
the Pacific like a pond, asserts Captain
Mason, of the Beaver, who said on ar
rival yesterday that from Los Angeles
until the liner was well north of Cali
fornia the voyage was most pleasant,
and though cooler weather was experi
enced along the Oregon coast, at no
time was the sea other than placid.
More than 100 travelers made the trip
and some came to enjoy an Oregon
Christmas, with others returning home
and a majority on business bent. i
The Beaver sails Tuesday and car
ries among other things a number of
Oregon fir trees for Christmas. She Is
due to reach San Francisco the morn
ing of December 25 and there will be
trees at each masthead as well as- dis
played on various parts of the super-
structure. Captain Clem Randall, for
merly a navigator in the fleet and for
several years superintendent of a tu
boat fleet at San Francisco, returns on
the Beaver after having been operated
on here for- appendicitis. He left St.
Vincent's Hospital for quarters at the
Seward Hotel yesterday.
FLOATING ICE CAKES BIG
STEAMER BEAR , PLOWS
THROUGH TO BERTH.
Steamboatmen Say if Ice Becomea More
Tronbleso'me River Fleet May Use
Slonsra to St. Helena.
Floating ice, some sections of which
were estimated by Pilot Archie Pease
to cover about an acre and frozen from
three-quarters of an inch to an inch
thick, were ploughed through by the
flagship Beaver, of the San Francisco
and Portland fleet, from St. Helens to
the mouth of the Willamette yesterday.
The oil tanker Asuncion followed the
Beaver up the rjver and the British
steamer Usher left here for Astoria,
so that for a time a path was assured,
but Pilot Pease said that if there was
no movement of large vessels through
the ice district regularly he feared the
entire river there would be covered.
The Beaver ran into the first Ice at
Rainier. Steamboatmen say that if ice
becomes more troublesome below the
mouth of the Willamette some of the
regular river fleet will proceed via the
slough to St. Helens. The Harvest
Queen, reaching here last evening from
Astoria, reported that there was ice
from Kalama to the Willamette, but it
was well broken up because of the pass
age of deepwater vessels. ,
The little sternwheeler La Center
was reported frozen up in Lewis River
yesterday, failing to make her cus
tomary journey here. The steamer
Woodland was tied up at Portland yes
terday, suspending service to Lewis
River points because of the freeze. Lake
River is frozen over, and the Cowlitz to
such an extent that- the steamer Ches
ter ceased operating between Kelso and
Steamers from Camas to Vancouver
found new ''ice forming in places be
sides the floating pieces, and steam
boatmen lo.ok for trouble below the
Willamette in the event warmer weath
er is not experienced.
News from Lewiston, Idaho, yester
day was that the O.-W. R. & N. steamer
Spokane had been tied up there owing
to ice and low water, and that ends the
service temporarily. On the Upper Wil
lamette the principal trouble from the
cold, dry spel is falling water, and the
Yellow Stack line has been compelled
to substitute the steamer Oregona for
the Grahamona between Portland and
Willamette Valley points.
Captain L. P. Hosford. manager of
the Harkins Transportation Company,
said last night that ice conditions in
the Columbia, which were reported to
him by Captain Hagstrom, of the
steamer lone, might necessitate the
company refusing freight after today
for Washougal and Camas. Captain
Hagstrom said ice was accumulating
rapidly below the Vancouver bridge
and getting worse above, also that at
the head of Government Island it was
jamming. Captain Hosford decided to
send the steamer Georgia Burton out
with the lone today, so if one gets into
trouble the other may assist her in
working through the ice. He intends
to telephone a complete report tonight,
so the receipt of shipments may be
BRADY RECALLS BIG FREEZE
Grappler Points Out That Winter of
1876 Had Similar Start.
Ice, forming between the Harbor Pa
trol launchhouse and the shore yester
day morning, recalled to Hugh Brady,
municipal grappler, that in 1876, when
the river froze so that cattle could be
driven across, wood hauled and other
heavy loads placed thereon, the cold
snap began about December 15 and
gradually temperatures dropped until
the river, which was at a low stage
as at present, was frozen.
Also, says Mr. Brady, there is no
prospect of a change from the prevail
ing weather before December 24. In
fact the veteran riverman has a host
.of "Indian signs" in support of his
theory that this will be far from a
mild Winter. Steamers arriving from
points on the Willamette and Colum
bia yesterday had icicles hanging about
fantails, and the same evidence of low
temperatures was found on some that
were tied up In port.

OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. "Wash

ley has been advised by members of
the House committee on rivers and har

mouth of the Columbia River was re
duced by the committee from $1,750,000
to $1,250,000 on the recommendation of
Colonel Taylor, assistant chief of en

that with the balance remaining out of
the million dollars allotted last Fall,
the lesser amount would be all that
would be required to carry on the work

It was also learned that prior to
Mr. Hawley's appearance before the
committee there was a disposition to
cut the appropriation for the Lower
Willamette and Columbia below Port
land from $600,000 to $400,000, but Mr.
Hawley's argument showed the neces
sity for the full amount. A member
of the rivers and harbors committee
said that but for the explanations
offered by Mr. Hawley, no appropriation
would have been made for Nehalem and
the appropriations for Coos Bay and
Coquille River would have been sub
stantially cut, as the committee thought
the estimates were too liberal.
