FIRE PRECAUTION RENEWED
Dry Weather Causes Apprehension
in Forestry Office.
Although no fires were reported to
the forestry officials of this district
yesterday, all officials of public and
private fire protection agencies are
taking unusual precautions during the
continued dry weather.
A low humidity that has been no
ticed in this region for the last few
days admits of the rapid drying of
vegetation and the dangers of fire are
becoming greater daily.
As a result of the dry weather fewer
fire permits will be issued, so that the
dangers of fire will be reduced to the
minimum. Hunters especially are re
quested to take the greatest precau
tions in the matter of building fires-

ASTORIA. Or.. Aug. 20. (Special.)
Ample funds for the completion of
the improvement project at the en
trance to the Columbia River will be
forthcoming at the next session of Con
gress if Judge Sparkman. chairman of
the House committee, that today in
spected the scene of operations, has
his way about it.
"I am fully satisfied with the show
ing made and the Information received
on this trip has thoroughly convinced
me of its importance," he raid. Oth
ers of the committee were equally as
favorable, though only limited time
was available to explain to them in
detail the actual progress made.
Support Is Indicated.
An approximate estimate furnished
Representative Sparkman was that
32.400,000 would be required to finish
the north Jetty and it was felt from
his observations and comment on the
headway gained that all reasonable
support would be given from Washington.
Standing well forward on the bow
of the torpedo-boat Fox, in fact al
most as far toward the stem as the
party could And room. Judge Spark
man studied oharts of the river's en
trance and" almost 'as rapidly as one
of the guns alongside of him could be
operated he fired questions at Major
Jewett, Corps of Engineers. U. S. A.:
G. B. Hegardt. chief engineer or tne
Commission of Publio Docks, who was
formerly In charge of operations on
the south Jetty when with the Gov
ernment engineers, and E. W. Wright.
manager of the. Port of Portland, who
has to do with the operation of tugs
in handling ships to and from the
Knowledge of Work Apparent.
Questions asked by the chairman of
the committee impressed those about
him with the fact he had studied the
character of the work under way and
obstacles that had been surmounted.
Besides obtaining a first-hand view of
the ground Judge Sparkman said he
appreciated the fact that he was able
to procure direct information irom
men having such a thprough knowl
edge of what was required.
On the train wnen en route from
Portland he spent much of the time
with the same men in ascertaining
the amount of commerce on the river,
the area of Portland's harbor, river
conditions as to the channel and a
mass of such data.
Information Is Gratifying.
But the main topic was devoted to
the entrance and Judge Sparkman ex
pressed himself as particularly pleased
to learn that the bar was under absoi
lute control through the changes
brought about by the Jetties and work
of the dredge Chinook, also that the
bar had no longer moved seaward, as
he had been led to believe, but In fact
was shorter than before, as the move
ment of sand Inside was deepening to
ward the bar.
The results attained this season by
dredging, in that the cut being made
by the Chinook was increased from a
depth of 26 feet in April to 36 feet on
soundings made the latter part of
July, were surprising to the chairman.
Federal Engineers tn Party.
In the party from Portland, which
was arranged by the Chamber of Com
merce, were Colonel Potter and Major
Jewett, Corps of Engineers. U. S. A- in
charge of the improvements from Port
land to the sea, and they were kept
busy answering questions of the vis

the Seventeenth Lighthouse District,
was called on for information dealing
with aids to navigation and how

the bureau of lighthouses to install
one of the finest- lighting systems in

river and the demand for the project
The matter of constructing a special (
dredge for the entrance, to be used
after the completion of the north jetty,
was taken up wUh Judge Sparkman,
but he did not express himself on that
feature at length, advising tbat the
proper way to obtain attention at
