KEEP OREGON L
IS ENGINEER'S PLEA
Bird Refuge Bill Opposed by
MEASURE. UP TO VOTERS
Ccs-slon of Bis Malheur Tract to
t. S., It Is Held, Would Mean
Serlons Io-s to State
SALEM, Or, Oct. 7. (Special.)
Passage of the measure ceding to the
United States government many thou
sands of acres of land In the Malheur
lake district to be utilized as a bird
refuge, would cause a loss to the
rtate or Orffron estimated at not less
than 300,000. according to a state
ment issued today by Percy A. Cupper,
date engineer, in response to an
ajpeal made recently by K. W. Nelson
of the United States biological survey
tn which the latter urge approval of
the bill as an economic measure. The
proposal to cede these lands to the
government will go before the voters
at the general election in November.
"At the recent state fair grain ws
JcWbited which was grown within
the meander lino of Malheur lake,"
Kid Mr. Cupper's statement. "This
grain attracted considerable attention
and served effectively to discredit the
assertions that this land is valueress
from an agricultural standpoint. If it
Is of value for the production of
marsh grass it must be of more value
for the production of grain and
Much Hay IVow Produced.
"If the Malheur bird refuge meas
ure passes this land will be deeded to
the federal government and removed
from the possibilities of taxation. It
has been estimated that at least 30,
000 of the 47,000 acres in the bed of
the. lake are adapted to agricultural
purposes. This land, if disposed cf
at 10 an acre, would net the state
school iunds approximately $300,000.
The fact that 7000 tons of marsh hay
annually are now cut from this area
wbld eeem conclusively to prove thic
the Malheur bird refuge measure seeks
to give the federal government a
valuable asset which properly should
remain state property.
"According to information received
from the engineer of the Harney
basin irrigation district, which in
cludes approximately 82.000 acres of
land in Harney county, the irrigators
of that section are almost a unit
against the measure. The engineer
advises that he recently visited por
tions of the Malheur lake district and
found excellent crops growing within
the meander lines.
Board Against Proposal.
"It would seem to be a serious mis
take on the part of the state to give
this body of valuable land to the
federal government, particularly
when we "take into consideration the
fact that any plan which so far has
been considered for the reclamation
of the bed of Malheur lake would
provide for the diking of a large area,
which could and should be maintained
as a bird reserve. I believe those who
desire to see the measure defeated
are almost to a man favorable to the
maintenance of a part of - Malheur
lake as a bird reserve.
"The state land board, composed of
Governor Olcott. Secretary of state
Kozer and State Treasurer Hoff, has
full Jurisdiction over state lands and
has gone on record in opposition to
giving Malheur lake to the government."

BRIDGES1 DEAL UNMASKED
JAPANESE IiEASE IjAXD FROM
Oriental Found In. Possession of
Farm Belonging to Man After
SEATTLE, - Wash.. Oct. 7. (Spe-
That Robert Bridges, farmer-labor
nominee for governor, had leased two
tracts of farm land in the White river
valley to Japanese tenants from 1915
to 1919 is shown by official record in
the county auditor's office which
came to light yesterday in following
uip testimony given before a sub-committee
of the national house of rep
resentatives committee on immigra
tion at a hearing in Seattle recently.
In testifying before the sub-committee
on July 27, Frank Terrace, a
pioneer farmer of Orillia, said:
"There Is a demagogue In our valley
who has four farms and four boys,
who is a candidate for governor and
is going about the state denouncing
the Japanese, yet he has rented two
of his farms to Japanese and two of
his boys who will not live on the
farms are here in Seattle driving jit
While the lease recorded in the
auditor's office, given in March, 1915,
by Robert Bridges and Agnes Bridges,
his wife, to K. Takeda and T. Shinya,
expired March 1, 1919. a visit to
Orillia yesterday disclosed Takeda in
possession of one of the farms. Shinya
is said to be now living in Kent.
Bridges Is in Stevens county this
week waging his campaign .for gov
ernor. One of Takeda's associates
said Bridges and his boys don't like
farming, so the Japanese have a
chance to lease the land. "It's too
hard work for them," he said, re
ferring to Bridges and his sons.

Instead of numerous speakers on
varied subjects. Dr. Baillet of New
York gave a series of six lectures
The final lecture was on the subject
of fatigue. The cure for so - called
school fatigue, he said, was better
teaching and more enthusiastic work.
Much of the pupils' fatigue, he said,
was from worry over examinations.
Late hours and dissipation during
the high school period was another
.prolific cause of fatigue.
