Seaview. to formulate plans and raised
funds, to establish a ferry service. be

of the Columbia river, and Mctiowan.
a point of launching on the Washing
ton siae.
The object of this ferry service is
to benefit the automobile owners and
aid them in getting their cars across
tne river.
The ferry company, proposes to
charge only a nominal sum for this
service. It ' is planned to put on a
barge large' enough to take care of
15 or 20 automobiles at one time
and to give a regular and efficient
service throughout the summer season.
BEND, Or., July 1 0. (Special.)
T)efinite approval of the Benham
Falls storage reservoir site, the key
to the Deschutes Irrigation project,
which was visited by members of the
congressional appropriations com
mittee and Arthur P. Davis, director
of the reclamation servics, now tour
ing the state, was announced here to
day In a telegram received from Rep
resentative N. J. Sinnott in Washing
ton. The telegram, copies of which
were sent to Bend and Tumalo Irr'ga
tion advocates, stated that the re
port, of Professor W. O. Crosby, who
examined the reservoir site last sum
mer for the reclamation service, is
now in the hands of the acting direc
tor at Washington, and quoted the
report as stating that the reservoir
would be practically proof against
lei.kage, even under full head, and the dam site would prove satis
factory for an earth dam.
Tanneln Project V lulled. -According
to the 1914 co-operative
state and federal survey of the Des
chutes project, the Benham Falls dam
would raise the water of the river
1 1.5 feet, and back up the Deschutes
IS miles, flooding 1,000 acres of land
and storing 440,000 acre feet.
The visiting representative and of
ficials left Bend this morning and to
dt y went over the Tumalo and central
OiiTon irrigation projects, stopping
at Prineville for luncheon, and going
on from there to Madras, where their
special car waited to take them to
Sincere interest in the chief prob
lem of the central Oregon country
the problem of bringing water to the
land and adding to the nation's food
supply by making productive many
thousand acres of now arid soil was
shown last night by the members of
the official party in addresses at a
banquet given in their honor here at
the Pilot' Butte inn. Representative
Sinnott as toastmaster was intro
duced by T. A. McCann, general man
ager of the Shevlin-Hixon company.
.Mr. Sinnott Explains Visit.
Mr. Sinnott assured the gathering
of business men and agriculturists
that a desire to learn first hand of
the conditions and needs of Oregon
had prompted the visit. to this section
of the state.
"It has been no junket, no path of
roses," he said.
The Deschutes project, he declared
further, has been a matter of especial
interest to Director Davis.
After referring to Representative
Sinnott, as "the bgigest man in con-
gress," James W. Good of Iowa, com
mittee chairman, bespoke the interest
of the committee in the needs of the
west, among which he listed Irriga
tion as the greatest.
"We eaw, on our trip to Bend, land
with -scarcely a blade of grass, but
: capable of producing 70- bushels of
grain to. the acre if the water were
brought to It," he said. "I consider
. It decidedly worth while to make
these waste places produce the food
necessary to sustain the constantly-
growing population of America and of
the world."
Orrgon Called Progressive.
Only the fact that private develop
mcnt started 17 years ago shut out
the reclamation service at that time
prevented the Deschutes project from
being one of the first to be under
taken by the government, Mr. Davis
said. Oregon has been particularly
progressive In irrigation matters.
ne remarked, "and there are now
several projects which we would like
to take up in this state if funds were
available. I hope that as' other pro
Jects in the west near completion.
and as our Income is increased by oil
? land leases, that the day will not be
: far distant when we can come to the
; assistance -of such- projects as" that
in the Deschutes valley."
Burton L. French of Idaho, pointed
out that the west is at a disadvantage
in the house because of its small
number of representatives, and C. L.
"Farmer" Smith. Union Pacific vet
- eran agriculturist, fortified his stand
for irrigation by asserting that an
increased food supply is needed if
America is to continue as an orderly,
law-abiding country.
"The largest production to the acre
and the. least cost, of cultivation to
the- acre le on the small farm," he
said, "and that means the Irrigated
farm. Putting water on arid lands
is the best investment the govern
roent can make. Every dollar put
into Irrigation will return a hundred
fold in the increased wealth and wel
fare of the country.

YAKIMA, Wash.. July 10. (Spe
cial.) From the wilderness into the
land of plenty briefly describes the
two-day Journey of the party of edi
tors, correspondents and representa
tives of commercial organisations.
which ended at Yakima tonight. . ,
Yesterday, deserted homesteads and
sagebrush plains with only- here and
there some more favorably located
tract of grain land spread out on ev
ery hand. Today, but a few miles
distant from the scenes of yesterday.
the expanse was of green alfalfa
fields, tall corn, spreading orchard
trees, tracts of sugar beets, attractive
homes and prosperous towns.
There was no difference in soil in
favor of today's view, the land was
no higher, no more level, and the
same hot sun was glowing overhead.
All the one lacked to make it as beau
tiful a garden spot as the other, and
a much larger one, was water water
that tumbles away off to the north
east only -to waste itself in the al
ready brimming Columbia.
Contrast Declared Great.
No greater contrast can be imag
ined than - that between last night's
point of " departure and tonight's
stopping place. The party's final
view of the dry lands yesterday was
of a once prosperous village, now
virtually deserted by man to the
monotonous wind and drifting sand.
Cunningham, on the Northern Pa
cific, is no longer a town. The houses,
churches, stores and warehouses still
stand, but they are tenantless and
windowless." and In the dusk of the
party's arrival to board the train pre
sented in the dismal, ghostly aspect
one of the 'most impressive, though
depressing, sights of this educa
tional Journey.
Water alone will revive this town.
Thence by train to Pasco. Pasco,
set down by railroad development, is
as dry and sandy a place as Cunning
ham. While Pasco need not depend
wholly on agriculture, it is reclaim
ing the waste that surrounds it and
is building- a substantial future.
Vision of Future Presented.
There today fields refreshed with
waters pumped from the Columbia
were disclosed standing . lush with
corn or alfalfa. The area thus re
claimed on the Pasco side of the river
Is not yet large as compared with the
Yakima valley, but what there is of it
presents aision of the certain future:
an Irrigation district has been formed
which plans to reclaim much more by
constructing works at Five-Mile, rap
ids near the town.
From Pasco the trip was by train
to Prosser. where lunch was served
by the. Commercial club. Prosstr citi
zens provided automobiles for the re
mainder of the journey to this, the
capital of an irrigated empire.
Through the Sunnyside and Toppen
ish districts the route ran. Here the
floor of a once sage-covered, valley is
on this hot, dry day as green and as
pleasing to look upon as the Willam
ette valley in spring. It Is no wont
der that they of the Columbia basin
country after seeing the Yakima val
ley cry out for water. A dinner
given by the Yakima Chamber of
Commerce was the closing incident of
the tour.

WASHINGTON. July 19. A shut

cause of car shortage, representatives
of more than a score of steel manu
facturers today informed the inter
state commerce commission. Daniel
Williard. chairman of the advisory
committee of the association of rail

equally insistent, however, that any
general suspension of industry would
be-averted and that improvement was
possible in the steel trade.
"I believe there will not be any
general shutdown of industry." de
clared Mr. Willard. "The situation. I
believe, will not get any worse, and
I believe we can make it better."
"A half-score witnesses appeared at
the closing session of the commis

of its order requiring preference to

Chairman Clark declared the com

of Mr. Willard to attempt solution of
