$50,000 Bond Is Canceled.
SALEM, Or., Jan. 10. (Special.) The
Northwestern Townsite Company of
Philadelphia and the Portland Irriga
tion Company desire to abandon devel
opment of the Paisley project of more
than 12,000 acres in Central Oregon.
They will ask to be relieved from car
rying a $50,000 surety bond now held
over by the Land Board on an exten
sion of time which was granted to
September 11 of this year, according to
word which has been received by Sec
retary McAllister, or the board.
The Northwestern Townsite Company
notified the Portland Irrigation Com
pany by telegram not to appeal from
the decision of Judge Daily on the
question of adjudication of water rights
on the Chewaucan River, owing to the
excessive cost of filing a transcript,
which, it is said, would be more than
$1800, and it is understood that the
project will be abandoned entirely.
The Desert Land Board has been
asked to set a date at which a hearing
from the two companies can be had in
conjunction with the' State Water
Board, and a tentative date has been
set for next Tuesday.
In the matter of the adjudication of
the water rights an appeal was taken
from the decision of the State Water
Board, and in the Circuit Court it was
held that the Chewaucan Cattle Com
pany was entitled to all of the waters

Portland lumbermen yesterday were
advised of another advance on all lum-

The proposed advance applies to a
umber-consuming territory to which
West Coast lumber shippers do not have

Columbia, aligning himself against
Governor Withycombe and Commis
ioners Holbrook and Muck, of Mult
nomati. he started something.
Governor Withycombe said that the
action was disloyal to Oregon. Com
missioners Holbrook and Muck were
outspoken in their opinion of the vote
which gives to Clarke County, which
nvested $500,000 in the bridge, the
management of the structure, with the
appointment of all employes on the
bridge, denying any voice in the matter
to Multnomah County, which invested
$1,250,000 in the project.
Mr. Holman did not accompany tne
Oregon delegation to the meeting In
Vancouver yesterday afternoon, nor did
he return with them. Relations were
too strained to permit of this.
Open Break Is Reached.
What will happen at the next meet
ing of the Multnomah County Commis
sioners Is conjecture, but the deposing
of Mr. Holman as chairman apparently
Is contemplated. Mr. Holbrook probably
would succeed him. Commissioners Hol
man and Muck worked well together
during the first meetings of Mr. Muck's
stewardship. Mr. Muck nominated Mr.
Holman for chairman.
Friction developed at later meetings
came to an open break with the session
at Vancouver yesterday.
There is nothing in the law to pre
vent the naming of. a new chairman,
though the one appointed has served
but a week. The statutes provide that
the commissioners of a county may se
lect their own chairman, and that this
chairman "may be removed at pleas
air. Holbrook last night spoke of the
unexpected "flopping" of Mr. Holman
as "cut and dried" and "a disgraceful
selling out of Oregon interests."
Denny Campbell, an employe or Por
ter Bros, who had the contract for the
steel erection of the main river bridge,
was the Vancouver man named superin
tendent. He was not known to the
Oregon delegation with the exception
of Mr. Holman.

the balance of power, voted with them.
Increase of the proposed salary of
$125 a month for the superintendent to
$150 and the award to him of power to
select his own aides, subject to appro

proposed by Governor Withycombe and

ALBIXA BODV FILKS PROTKST
Commissioners Asked Not to Abun
don Vancouver Approach.
Emphatic protest against the aban
donment of the approach from Van

Union-avenue approach to the Inter
state bridge, has been made to the Com
missioners of Multnomah County in
petition filed by the Albina Business
Men's Association, to which is append
ed the names of scores of leading Port
land business men.
Ultimate injury to the city would be
entailed in abandoning the Vancouver-
avenue approach, protests the petition.

ssioners have been considering some
ch action. Abandonment would in
convenience the entire West Side and
all of Albina from Rodney avenue to
the river, it is contended, as well as
Clarke County. Washington.
The appeal, made by the organization
of which S. A. Matthieu is president,
and T. L. Adams, secretary, makes its
first stand on a sentimental basis for
the perpetuation of Vancouver avenue
long the old military road serving Ore-
gon and Washington. It then descends
to the practical.
"Union avenue does not now, and
never can. serve the paramount In
terests of this city insofar as inter
state traffic 1 concerned," the petition
reads, "for the reason that the ap
proach we now have Is a much more
direct route, and also about five
eighths of a mile shorter.
"Moreover, we feel perfectly safe in
asserting that the approach by Van
couver avenue always will be the roost
feasible for two principal reasons
first, it is the shortest available route
possible, and second, it parallels Will
iams avenue, which Is only one block
east and at present a fully paved street
with car service as far out as Killings
"A further reason is that when Will
lams avenue Is extended north (a proj
ect being agitated) it will intersect
perfectly with Vancouver avenue near
the Columbia boulevard., thereby af
fording choice of two avenues for traf
fic, both supplying the easiest possible
grades, and both accommodated by one
bridge over the slough and one fill
not over one-half mile in length.
"We have said this is the shortest
available route because there seems to
be but one other at all to be consid
ered; we refer to the possible connec
