OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU.
Washington. Jan. 17. Western gov
ernors and accompanying delegations
got down to business with the steer
ing committee of senate and house
today in the interest of"their demand
for money for the development of ir
rigation in the west. The committees
gave respectful attention to talks by
Governors Davis of Idaho, and Lar
razola of New Mexico, and former
Governor Spry of Utah.
Senator McCumber, chairman of
the senate steering committee, said
In opening the conference, that it
was the first time in the history of
congress that the steering committees
had ever granted a hearing on legis
lation. He said, however, that on
account of the distinguished leader
ship of this western delegation they
could not deny the unusual request.
The members of the two committees
evinced deep interest in the matter
and asked many questions, promising
to give the proposed legislation se
Another meeting was held tonight
with the senate and house irriga
tion committees at which Senator
McNary of Oregon presided. A tenta
tive draft of a bill was submitted
which would provide for the govern
ment lending its credit to the ex
tent of 1250,000,000 for reclamation
development, this being the plan to
which the delegation finally returned.
' The bill provides that the secretary
of the interior may select feasible
projects and provide the money as
needed by the sale of treasury cer
tificates at 4 per cent per annum,
payable in 50 years. These certifi
cates would be paid off in the same
way that the present reclamation
projects are paying their cost, the
money paid in by the settlers going
to wipe out ttve. obligation. In this
way there would be no raid on the
. treasury, as has been the complaint
against the demands of the west for
an appropriation. Soldiers and the
widows of soldiers would be given the
preference rights of settlement under
the projects to be created.
