tion of a commercial reduction plant
at the lake. Fletcher Linn and Frank
B. Layman, who hare become inter
ested with Mr. Moor In the enterprise,
appeared with him before the State
Land Board and ail three returned to
Portland laat night.
"It was agreed with the State Land
Board that upon my release to the
state of the $10,000 paid in as a guar
antee of good faith when the lease was
(ranted, that the board would acknowl
edge receipt in full of all obligations
up to the end of 1919. and that the
I rase would be modified in accordance
with the agreement." said Mr. Moore
last night. "When production begins,
royalty will be paid as specified In the
lase at the rate of 2a cents a ton for
eioda ash, and SO cents a ton for potash
produced from the deposits of Summer

"Work will be started as soon as
weather conditions will permit and

charge of the erection of the plant. It
will involve an expenditure of $30,000.

Spring, as early as condition of the
roads will enable economical movement
of the product to the railroad for ship

WASHINGTON'. Dec. 3. (Special.)
For the first time In many years, if
not for the first time In the history
of the Oregon country, the entire senjs
ate and House delegations from Ore
gon and Washington met today to urge
a common cause the continuance of
the wooden ship-building programme
In the Pacific Northwest. While the
members of the Shipping Board did
not commit themselves, the comments
they made and the questions they
asked created a strong impression that
thev favor restoring work on the con
tracts upon which proceedings were
Only three members or me snipping
Board were present, Messrs. Donald,
Colby and Page, the ether members,
Hurley and Stevens, being in Europe.
In addition to the Senators and Rep
resentatives, there were present Guy
M. Standlfer and C. M. Hamilton, rep
resenting shipbuilding interests; A. C
Dixon, representing the Booth-Kelly
Lumber Company, and R. B. Allen, rep
resenting the lumbering and logging
interests of the Pacino Nortnwest.
Conference la Iaformal.
The conference, which had been ar
ranged by Representative McArthur,
was largely informal. Addresses were
made by all the members of the two
delegations, the purport or wnicn was
that both the shipbuilders and the
laboring men have relied upon the
completion of the ship building pro
gramme and have been encouraged 10
do so by recent utterances of the chair
man of the board: Nearly all have in
curred obligations upon the strength of
the confidence in the continuance or
the work, regardless of the coming
One of the Impressive features of
the "discussion was the showing that
the shipbuilders would suffer the least
loss by cancellation of the contracts,
while labor would suffer most. The
uhlDbuildlntr comDanies and some of
the sub-contractors would be relm
bursed for their losses, but many of
the sub-contractors would suffer heavy
losses and the laborers would be out
of employment. It was estimated that
35.000 workmen would bo directly af
fected and 50.000 indirectly through
suspension of allied industries.
It was also stated that to cancel

George W. Joseph, sole owner of the

In p-esenting his offer to the se
lective committee, Mr. Joseph expressed
the belief that a highway from Port
land to Mount Hood would constitute
an expressive testimonial to the serv
ices of Oregon's sons in the late war.
To such an end he offered the Barlow
road, at present operated as a tollroad.

Should the Barlow road be accepted
as a unit of the memorial tribute, the
Victory Highway would run from Port
land to Gresham, thence W Sandy, and
thence to Mount Hood, a distance of
56 miles. Graded and paved, the scenic
thoroughfare would be comparable to
the Columbia Highway, as the course
extends through country that is wildly
beautiful, and terminates at the foot ol
Mount Hood itself.

tions may yet be obtained from Federal
and state sources to further the Vic

The sight of many fine vineyards be

then ship the liquid to a point in
Mexico where a winery will be estab

It is asserted that the raw wine can
be shipped by boat and handled with
profit from a Mexican market. It is
stated that some of the vineyardists
