Big Irrigation Project Has En
emies at Washington,
THEY PLOT ITS DEFEAT
These suits Involve every effort of the
sugar companies to do away -with the sys
tem of test, -which has been f ought out bo-
fore In the Boards of Appraisers and be
fore United States Courts up to the Court
ok Appeals. It has been decided steadily
in favor of the Government.

BOY SAYS KAN BOBBED HDL
Commercial Organizations of Port
land Will Send Loud Protests
to National Capital and
Ask That Work Go On.
Opposition to the Government's Kla
math irrigation project has succumbed
in the House of Representatives at Wash
ington, according to -advices received at
Portland yesterday, and the battle ground
is nbw in the Department of the Interior,
where the Klamath Canal Company,
which would be crowded out of the field
by the Government project. Is laboring to
have the engineers and surveyors of the
reclamation service withdrawn from the
Commerlcal bodies of Portland will
send loud protests to Washington and
are already laying plans to head off the
foes of the Government project. Dr. R.
B. Lee Stelner, Representative from
Lake county in the Oregon Legislature,
and author of the bill which has passed
the Legislature, ceding the beds of lakes
in Klamath to the .National Government,
was in Portland yesterday explaining the
matter to the commercial organizations.
"I have telegraphic dispatches," said
he. "announcing that the bill in Congress
authorizing the Secretary of the Interior
to use the waters of Upper and Lower
Klamath and Tule Lakes, has won out
over its adversaries in the House and that
it will probably pass that body. It has
already passed the Senate. President
Roosevelt will approve It, I have no
doubt. But now the enemies of the
project are trying to persuade the Secre
tary of the Interior to withdraw the Gov
ernment engineers and surveyors from
the Klamath country."
When asked who those opponents were
Dr. Stelner responded:
Canal Company Fights Project.
"They are not the people of Klamath
County; for that part of the state de
mands, with one voice, that the Govern
ment go ahead with its irrigation plans.
The truth is, the Klamath Canal Com
pany Is behind the fight. That company
will probably not be able to thwart the
Government enterprise, but the people of
Oregon should make their protests heard
at Washington so as to ward off any
possible danger. Klamath County needs
Portland's influence in this matter."
Dr. Stelner explained that the Klamath
Canal Company, a California corporation,
has a project for reclaiming some 75,000
acres of -land, with water drawn from
Upper Klamath Lake, and that according
to its own statement it has already ex
pended about 5130,000. Owners of 25,000
acres of land have entered Into contracts
with the company for water, but no fur
ther contracts have been made since the
National Government proposed Its proj
ect for reclaiming 315,000 acres.
Since that time the owners of land have
wlshedx for the Government project in
stead of for that of the Klamath Canal
Company. The Government has offered to
recompense the company for all money
thus far expended, together with Inter
est, but the company has refused to give
State to Relinquish Claims.
Dr. Stelners bill In the Oregon Legis
lature passed both houses, without a sin
gle negative vote, and was signed by the
Governor. It provides that the state shall
relinquish claim to lake lands, which the
National Government will drain for the
purposes of Irrigation. This was a con
dition stipulated by the reclamation service.
INSURANCE COMPANY WINS.
Plaintiff in Damage Suit Accused of
"The preponderence of evidence Is
against him in that he has made false
statements as to the value of his stocks
This opinion was rendered yesterday by
Judge Frazer In the suit of the Fire Asso
ciation of Philadelphia against John AI
lesina, an umbrella manufacturer, to set
aside the award of the appraiser as to
loss suffered by Alleslna In a fire two
years ago. The total loss as appraised
was $13,562.18. but most of this was against
other companies in which Alleslna held
policlea All the companies refused to
pay. and Alleslna sued them and won his
suits. The Fire Association also resisted
payment and charged the umbrella manu
facturer with fraud. For this he sued
the company and Its agent for damages.
The company, however, continued to fight
the case stubbornly, and the decision by
Judge Frazer yesterday was- In its favor.
The Insurance company selected Grant
Phegley as Its appraiser and Alleslna
chose H. D. Ramsdell. The two agreed
upon Herbert Bradley as umpire. It was
alleged by the plaintiff that Ramsdell
wanted to take a full Inventory of the
stock of Alleslna, which was valued at
J6.C00. but Phegley refused to allow him
to do so. and presented figures which
were submitted to the umpire as a Just
award. Bradley, it was claimed, did not
inspect the stock, and signed the state
ment and the inventory document given
him by Phegley.
Ramsdell refused to sign. The court
hold that the umpire did not perform his

Tells Weird Tale of Theft on South
ern Pacific Sleeper.
Claiming to have been robbed of $10
by a man who shared his berth in a
sleeping-car on the Southern Pacific Rail
road Friday night, little John McKenzie,
weary and hungry, limped Into police
headquarters yesterday afternoon and
asked assistance from Captain Moore.
His case was taken under consideration,
and later he was sent to the receiving
home of the Boys' and Girls' Aid Society.
The little fellow is but 12 years old.
and this is his second trip to Portland.
His parents reside at 139S Pine street, San
Francisco, and his father is employed on
the Eddy-street carllne there. Hardly
any credence is placed in his story of
robbery, but the police will Investigate it.
He says the man asked him to let him
have the $10. when the two retired for
the night, and that he refused to return
it in the morning.
I came to Portland to see some friends
of mine here," said the lad last night.
Just previous to being taken to the re
ceiving home. "I was here last April, but
the police caught me and sent me home.
I am pretty hungry, as that man took all
the money I had in the world, excepting
three pennies. I'm afraid my mother and
father will worry about me. I wish you
would let them know about this, so they
will not think I have been hurt."
Robert Jenkins and Ancer Smith, lads
from Canby, Or., were also picked up by
the police last night and lodged in the
City Jail. They had walked to town and
were worn out when they got to the
East Side depot. They sat down to rest
and Patrolman Murphy, making his
rounds, found them.
NAMES OWNERS OF $10,000.
Circuit Court Renders a Decision in
Big Land Deal.
There is no evidence that John H.
Benson and F. A. Hyde ever obtained
title to the SOOO acres of timber land which
they sold," said Judge Frazer yesterday.
in deciding a case against these two fa
mous landgrabbcrs, who have attained so
much notoriety of late in the California
The case was one In which Wrells, Fargo
& Co. appear as lnter-pleader against
James E. Page, Willis H. Gilbert. John
H. Benson and F. A. Hyde, to have the
court decide what disposition the bank
should make of a deposit amounting to
$10,009 received in 1S02.
Benson and Hyde agreed to transfer
SOOO acres of timber, land In Washington
to Gilbert for a large sum. Ten thousand
dollars was deposited with Wells, Fargo
& Co. by Gilbert as a guarantee that he
would keep his part of the contract, and
as a first payment. Before the deal could
be consummated, a destructive timber fire
raged over the section in which the loca
tions are situated. Gilbert for this rea
son declined to carry out his agreement,
contending that the fire had destroyed
much of the valuable timber. Wells,
Fargo & Co. went Into court to obtain a
decision as to what to do with the money.
Judge Frazer held that no evidence had
ever been given to prove that Benson and
Hyde had ever gained title to the land
they were to convey to Gilbert, nor that
they could have gained such title. Ben
son and Hyde suffered no actual damage.
For this reason, the court ordered the
bank to hold the money subject to Gil
