"We must deepen rivers suitable for
commerce connecting with the great

must make every navigable river, bay
and harbor on the Pacific and we have
too few for the great commerce that
waits upon enterprise and faith deep

and merchant marine.- And all this
must be done through wise and scien

and appropriations for purely local am

after the league , of peace has safe

largest play and its best expansion."

feet at the bar.
"I prophesied at that time," said
Secretary Daniels, "that when I re
turned 1 would be on the deck of the
Oregon. The Oregon beat me in, but
I came on the deck of one of the
largest and most modern battleships
afloat. So I take my place with the
major prophets."

Fruit Reported Dropping and Split'
ting Cnder Constant, Heavy
Fall of Water.
ROSEBURG. Or., Sept. 8. (Special.)
Prune growers of the county are faa
ng immense losses unless a change in
eather conditions comes within a few
ours. It was stated by different grow-
rs today.
Continued rains extending over a
week have caused the fruit to drop in
many orchards, while in other locali
ties prunes are splitting under in
fluence of the Btorm.
Yesterday there appeared to be a
lull, and orchardists everywhere were
prepared to get to work today, when
a deluge set In at daybreak. In some
orchards, it was stated, where picking
had begun, work was continued re
gardless of the rain. Orchards on up
lands appear to have matured their
fruit earl'.ir than those on river bot
tom and riper prunes are damaged
One extensive orchardist In the Cole's
valley district stated this morning that
so far his prunes were not materially
damaged, although they would not
stand much more rain without suf
ferlng. All cracked and dropped . fruit
can be saved, he stated, provided it
can be gotten to the driers before de
cay sets in. and in the opinion of
Garden valley prune men also, there
has been but nominal damage so far.
Three-quarters of an Inch of rain
fell in two and one-half hours this
morning, and since the storm broke a
week ago over two and one-half inches
have fallen. Grass has started and
stockmen are Jubilant.
BEXD, Or., Sept. 8. If the 1919 rain
fall for Bend and the vicinity reaches
the 16-inch average established here,
9.95 inches more must be precipitated
by the end of the year. Despite unusu
ally heavy rain during the last ten
days, the total so far is only 6.05 inches.
vation controversy considerable sig
nificance was attached by senators to
Senator Simmons' formal statement, al
though he disclaimed privately that he
ppoke for the president. He explained
that he gave only his personal view
of the senate situation, and this ex
planation was supported by Senator
Hitchcock, who said that President
Wilson's position on reservations, even
of a "mild" variety, had not yet been
made known. Republican leaders, how
ever, hailed Senator Simmons' state
ment as a frank concession that the
treaty cannot be ratified without reser
Senator Simmons said:
"After a thorough study of the situa
tion In the senate, I am convinced that
some concessions, in the way of reser
vations will have to be made to secure
Its ratification, and so believing, I have
recently discussed with a number of
my colleagues the advisability of reach
ing some compromise between those
who are in favor of the treaty without
reservations and those who are in favor
of it with conservative reservations of
an interpretative character.
"I am utterly opposed, however, to
the reservations proposed by the for
eign relations committee. Some of
these reservations would radically
change the scope and character of the
instrument, emasculating some of the
main provisions of the league, and
would call for reconsideration by the
peace conference."

Witnesses at Investigation Say Stu
dent's Death Xatural.
MEDICAL, LAKE, Wash., Sept. 8.
That Charles Alexander, an inmate of
the state custodial school here, died
July 28 from natural causes, and not
as a result of mistreatment, was the
testimony here today of Dr. W. M.
Newman, county coroner; Dr. 'Farmer,
house physician at the institution, and
other witnesses who appeared before
the members of the state board of
control, which is conducting an Investi
gation into the boy's death.

one of the other inmates had helped

of American troops to Siberia and the
reported plans to send others to Silesia
and Armenia.
Danger to Monroe Doctrine Seen.
"How can the president tell the peo
ple," demanded Senator Poindexter,
"that the league founded on the prin
ciple that Europe shall participate in
the control of American affairs and
that America shall participate in th
control of European affairs, does not
abrogate the Monroe doctrine?"
Quoting the president as saying Ger
many would not have Invaded Belgium
If she had known the United States
would have intervened. Senator Poin
dexter said:
"What prevented the United States
from intervening? Is it not true that
President Wilson himself prevented us
from intervening In order that he might
make a campaign for the presidency on
tne slogan, he kept us out of war r
"Germany and the United States were
parties to The Hague convention, which
guaranteed the inviolability of neutral
states," Senator Poindexter said. "Had
he advocated a show of force and some
slef-respect he might have saved Bel
gium. Was the president prevented
from acting because we did not have
a league of nations?"
Shastunir Provision Assailed.
Senator Poindexter attacked the
Shantung provision and took issue with
the president's statement that the cost
of living was being affected by delay
in ratifying the treaty.
"If that is so," he exclaimed, "th
whole treaty should be rejected at
once and the economic independence of
the nation reasserted. Will the presi
dent explain how the league of nations
will reduce the cost of living?
n h!le plans are being made to send
an American army to Turkey and an
other to Siberia and still another to
Germany, how can the president tell
the American people that if the league
of nations is adopted, no khaki-clad
troops will ever again cross the At
lantic? How will we be able to per
form our obligations In Mexico? Will
It be necessary to raise still another
army for that purpose?"
Senator Lodge said the senate would
consider the treaty article by article
and that the first amendment to be
taken up probably would be that pro
viding for equality of voting between
tbe United States and Great Britain.
