If Oregon wants quick action in de
veloping its arid lands, then Oregon
should get behind the bill of Congress
man N. J. Sinnott. of the Second Ore
gon District, rather than the measure
proposed by Secretary of the Interior
Lane, declares Jay L'pton. president of
the Oregon Irrigation Congress, which
is to hold its session Thursday. Friday
and Saturday at the Imperial Hotel.
The congress will consider matters
which deal with the reconstruction pe
riod and will probably suggest certain
matters which they will ask the Legis
lature to take up.
"1 am nonplussed at the apathy and
inertia displayed by the people west of
the Cascade Mountains toward the
only real and tangible plan which has
so far Leen conceived to secure devel
opment of the arid, swamp and logged
off lands of Oregon." says Mr. L'pton.
"The plan is the bill Introduced by
Representative Sinnott. of Oregon, by
Ahich fl.ooQ.O90.0uO is to be appropri
ated through the Reclamation Service
for the building of farms In the IS
Western states. Instead of Indorsing
this plan, which Is real and has meat
in it. a lot of people and newspapers
are giving their encouragement to a
naif-baked, new-fledged scheme pro
posed by the Secretary of the Interior,
from which the Eastern and Southern
rtates will materially profit, and which
was never intended to benelit the
state of Oregon.
"Both measures are designed to pro-
vld-: homes for returning soldiers and
where the results to be desired are the
same, the people of Oregon should sup
port the measure wMch will help Ore
gon. "The Reclamation Service has S.000.
000 acres surveyed In this state: It has
the equipment and the organization and
can go to work carrying out the long
made plans which have been held up
for want of money. If Mr. Sinnott s
bill is enacted, the funds will be avail
able and the Reclamation Service ran
get busy without delay.
"On the other hand, the measure of
the Secretary of the Interior calls for an
involved organization, an organization
in each state, and any amount of red
tape. If Secret try Lane's measure pre
vails rather that of Representa
tive Sinnotl's. Oregon can sit down and
wait for many years before Its waste
anas are made to bloom and become
productive. For the life of me, I can
not comprehend why Oregon should not
be shouting for the passage of the Sin
nott bill. And then tr.ero is every prob
ability that Mr. Sinnott will be chair
man of the public lands committee next
session, m nich will be another reason .
why if this bill Is passed he can see
that it Is lived up to.
Fred X. Wallace, who has charge of
the Tumalo project. Is secretary of the

lace, who is Just recovering from a
severe attack of influenza, makes vir

Engineer Cupper Aserts Sale of
$2,000,000 Bonds in 18 .Months
Due to Business Methods Used.
SALEM. Or., Jan. 6. (Special.)
During the past 18 months more than
J2.0O0.000 In Oregon irrigation district
bonds have been sold, while during the
seven preceding years not a bond ol
this kind was disposed of. This con
dition is due to the 1917 irrigation
district statute, according to Engineer
Cupper, in a letter sent to a Chicago!
bonding-house today. He credits the
Oregon statute with being the best
on the statute books of any state in
tbe Union.
"The irrigation district law of this
state was entirely re-enacted at the
1917 session, and I believe I can say
without fear of contradiction that it
is the best statute of its kind on
the statute books of any state," wrote
Mr. Cupper.
"Realizing that irrigation securities
had lost their standing and, in fact,
were in absolute disrepute on account
of Irrigation failures, we have endeav
ored to place- irrigation on a sound
business basis in this state. While
we are, of course, much interested in
