Rival Organization Offers to
Quit Opposition.
Demand Is Made That Keports Be
Published and All Decisions
v Be in Settlers' Interest.
Seattle, Wash., Dec. 22. The Colum
bia Basin Reclamation association,
recently organized in Seattle as an
opposition force to the Columbia
lasin irrigation league, has offered
terms and conditions for the settle
ment of differences of opinion. On
acceptance ' of these terms by the
older organization the association
undertakes to abandon its present
attitude and work harmoniously to
put water in the big basin.
It may be safely forecast at this
time that the Irrigation league will
not agree to the proposed condi
tions. To do so would mean a com
plete change In the course on which
the league is already well advanced.
James A. Ford, secretary of the
league, la In Seattle from Washing
ton, D. C, and yesterday held a long
and private conference with officers
of the Seattle chamber of commerce.
Charges Are Hurled.
As a result of this conference the
chamber officers are more than
.ever determined to continue in spite
of the league "plans. Charles R.
Berry of Seattle, who recently re
signed from the league directorate
and has been active in organizing
the Columbia Basin Reclamation
association, was called into- the con
ference and there is said to have
been a very lively interchange of
charges and counter-charges.
At Mr. Berry's request the con
ferees also listened to Willis T.
Bacheller, an engineer who made
the Grand Coulee survey of the
.'basin project. The associatipn Is
giving its support to this survey as
against the gravity plan of develop
ment recommended in the report of
General Goethals and supportei by
the league.
Report Publication Wanted.
The terms submitted by the asso
ciation to the league are as follows:
"If the league will: First, publish
a companion report to the Goodner
Albany Falls to Hillcrest survey,
publish the Batcheller Grand Coulee
to Bacon Lake survey In its entirety,
j and, second, amend the Poindexter
Columbia basin bill so that the sec
retary of the interior instruct the
chief of the reclamation service and
his board of engineers to decide all
engineering questions and methods
of irrigating basin lands to the best
Interests of prospective settlers, and
third, appoint upon your board of
trustees private, disinterested citi
zens equal in number to the con
tractors and representatives of spe
cial interests now dominating the
affairs- of the league, then the
Columbia Basin Reclamation asso
ciation will thereupon cease to be
a so-called rival organization and
under the name of the Northwest
Reclamation association will work
solely in the effort at solving the
various problems of land settlement
when the basin project is completed."
Speaking for the association, Mr.
Berry said today that if the whola
project were left with the federal
reclamation service his association
would be fully satisfied with its de
cisions. No Action Is Expected.
"There will be no recession on our
part," he said, "for it is evident that
If we allow the Poindexter bill to
go through It would be a signal vic
tory for its proponents. If the
league's intentions are sincere it
cannot do jptherwise than to agree
to such alterations as will raise the
bill above reproach."
It is not thought likely that the
league will make any response to
the latest proposals of the associa
tion but will rest its case so far as
northwest public opinion Is con
cerned on the statement issued and
published after the meeting of its
board of directors in Seattle ten
days ago.

Fossil-Hunter Not to Be Tempted
From His Search Unless
He Meets Reptile.
BUENOS AIRES, Dec. 22. (By the
Associated Press.) Before Elmer
S. Biggs, a Chicago paleontologist,
sailed for Patagonia today on a
fossil hunting expedition for the
Field museum he was informed by
Clements Onelli, director of the
Buenos Aires zoological garden, that
reports of a plesiosaurus were still
being received from the territory
of Chubut despite the failure of a
group of Argentine scientists to
find the prehistoric ' creature last
"If I meet that plesiosaurus,"
said Professor Riggs to Professor
Onelli, "I'll put a lariat around his
neck and lead him direct to the
Buenos Aire? zoo."
The Chicagoan visited the Argen
tine paleontologist and heard from
him the story of Patagonia's mon
ster, listening with interest to the
account of the unsuccessful search
of the Andean lake region, where
the creature was supposed to have
been seen. Professor Riggs said
that the data were very interesting,
but that It could not tempt him
from his fossil hunt. The plans for
his expedition, he asserted, were
still too indefinite to allow him to
state whether he would visit the
reputed haunts of the plesiosaurus.
Professor Onelli explained that
the name plesiosaurus was a mis
nomer and that the creature he still
believed to be alive in the Pata
gonian wilds was a survivor of a
race of giant sloths.
Professor Riggs expressed regret
that he had not had opportunity to
view the remains of the dinosaur
with nine-foot thigh bones which
explorers of the La Plata museum
are recently reported to have un
earthed. From descriptions of the
bones forwarded by the discoverers
Professor Riggs said that this dlno
sauer was evidently something new
among reptilian giants and that
from the size of the thigh bones it
was evident that the monster had
had a body 18 to 20 feet high.
