Govern Wc4t Writes President of
rrnaUIla Needs.
SALEM. Or. Oct. 11. (Special.) It la
considered here that the prospective
completion of tha West Cmatllla proj
ect will be largely enhanoed by a letter
which Governor West forwarded yes
terday to President Taft. eetttngr forth
the facta In relation to that project
and uralnf that money be advanced for
Its completion.
On the recent visit of the President
to this city the Governor act out fully
In a verbal statement th condition of
the project and that Oregon, while pay
Ins: the lion's ehare of the money that
makes up the reclamation fund, la re
eerrlng the small end of It In return.
The President assured the Governor
If the state executive would forward to
him a atatement In writing- as to con
ditions, that the subject would be taken
up personally by Mr. Taft and If he
found conditions would warrant com
pletion, that It would result In such be
ing done.
Governor West's letter, which la con
eldered of prime Importance aa far as
the future of the West Umatilla project
la concerned, la aa follows:
Agreeable to your request made while
visiting Salem during roue recent toor. I
am pleased to write you In referenoe to what
Is known as the "West Umatilla Irrigation
project" la this state.
By this project M Is proposed to Irri
gate about S0.0O0 acres of arid land la
Cmatllla and Morrow Countlee along the
southern shore of the Columbia Klver. I
understand that tbte ta to be done by tak
ing the surplus waters from the Umatilla
Hirer. Willow Creek and their tributaries
the water to be stored la a reservoir cre
ated by tbe construction of a dam S3 feet
high and 13.2UO feett long, near the month
ef Willow Creek: that all necessary water
rights have been Initiated and secured un
der tbe laws of this state and that there
are ae conflicts whatever. 1 understand
alee that complete topographical maps have
been made by the Reclamation Service and
the plane and estimates are aow on file
with the Interior Department. The only
thing needed to start the work la an execu
tive order.
I think jrou will find that the records will
bear me out whea I say that thla state has
contributed as much or more than any other
state toward the aepport of the reclama
tion fund and bas received In return a much
mailer sum than any other arid land state.
White we are broad minded enough to ap
preciate that no matter where thla money
la apenl It will Inure to the benefit of man
kind by providing desirable homes for hun
dreds of thousands of settlers, yet we feel
that a little snore should come to Oregon
than we have received.
This West Umatilla project la peculiarly
well situated. The climate Is delightful and
the soll rich, needing but water to make
It productive. It la within 1M miles of the
largest city In the state and what la des
tined to be the largest oa the Paclfle Ceaat.
It la unusually favored In that It Is served
not only by twe railroads, but by water
transportatlea aa wall.
Ia behalf ef the good people ef this state.
I aab mat yea kindly give these matters
your carer al constderettoa and earnestly
hope that year flndtaga will warrant fa
vorable aetloa en your part.
General Plan Contemplate Rasing
Building Not Permanent and
Erecting; Finer Structure.
attle. Oct. 10. (Special.) Plana are being-
completed by New Tork landscape
gardeners for th rearrangement and
beautlflcatlon of th university cam
pus. On of th biggest items will be
a 1300.000 administration building;, to
be erected In the most central location
on the campus.
Last year Olmstead Brothers, of New
Tork. were let the contract of drawing;
up the plana for the change. The board
fence and wooden grandstand that
greatly detract from the beauty of the
campua. according to these plans, will
be eliminated. Either the athletlo field
will be changed to a more remote por
tion of the college grounds, or an
artlstle-looking wall and an Immense
reinforced concrete grandstand will be
substituted for the flimsy structures
now In use. The Ill-kept wild grove
on ths campus will be swept clean by
experienced foresters and Oriental
shrubs and treea will be Introduced to
give variety to the fir and pine.
While the present large structure
will, not be carried to another part of
the campus, the small temporary wood
en and brick butldlngsXthat break the
symmetry will be razed. The present
administration building will be torn
down. Tha book store may meet the
same fate.
Long, smooth, bee-line drives have
their place In the plans, and paths will
connect the different buildings by the
shortest route. An excellent boule
vard beginning near the canal on the
south side of the campus and leading
around Lake Washington to connect
with Ravenna boulevard will be built.
Speaking of the big undertaking.
Professor E. O. Eastwood said:
"In spending thla Immense sum.
which will exceed $1,000,000, we are
building for a century. Now It may
seem that the proposed change does not
warrant such an expenditure, but In
future years educators will look back
and say that we bullded welL"

Police Believe Organized Shoplifters
Are Here Girl Takes Fur.
Additional strength was given the
police theory that a professional shop
lifter stole $2(00 worth of diamonds
from Mrs. O. H. Flthlan In the fur
store or Llebes & Co. Thursday, when
the detectives received a report yester
day that a similar crime had been com
mitted at tbe store of the Western Out
fitting Company a fur collar being
stolen. Description makes It plain that
the act was not that of the elderly
woman who la strongly suspected of
the first theft, but the police consider
the theory that both theft were by
member of a gang.
A young woman, tastefully dressed,
entered the outfitting company's store
Just before closing time Friday evening
and examined a fur collar, placing it
around her neck and looking at the
effect In a mirror. Then she broke off
the conversation with the clerk In a
manner to allay suspicion, and walked
toward the front of the store, with the
collar still around her neck. The man
ager, who wae at the door- thought a
purchase had been made, until the
clerk hurried to the front of the store
and reported the facts. By that time
