Hilciicock Will Reverse Himself
TO THE BENEFIT OF NORTHWEST
Had Taken Bad Advice Walcott Re
moves Objections to Umatilla,
Okanogan and Sunnyslde.
Washington, Nov. 18. Secretary
Hitchcock ia preparing to roverse him
self and npprovo the Umatilla irriga
tion project in Eastern Oregon, as well
as one or more projects in Washing
ton. This, at leaat, is the inference
to be drawn from an authorized state
ment made at his ofllco today to the
effect that action on the Umatilla pro
ject would be taken Bome time next
week which would be satisfactory to
the people of Oregon, and that similar
action was to be looked ior on one or
more Washington projects. It is not
known at this time what Washington
projects will bo approved, further than
that the choice will lie among tho Tie
ton, Okanogan and Sunnyside schemes,
all of which have been favorably re
commended by tho Reclamation service.
This announcement from the secre
tary's office was made after a confer
ence between Mr. Hitchcock and Di
rector Walcott, of the Geological sur
vey, who is the intermediary between
the secretary and the Reclamation ser
vice. This afternoon Mr. Walcott re
turned to the secretary all papers bear
ing on the Umatilla, Okanogan and
Tieton projects and, in addition to the
original recommendations, submitted
unanswerable arguments showing that
all these projects are not only feasible
and desirable, but that there is no feat
ure about them to which objection can
be legitimately raised.
In point of fact, Mr. Hitchcock,
shortly after taking adverse action on
the Umatilla, Tieton and Okanogan
projects, saw that he had acted on bad
advice, and realized that his position
would become untenable. He saw that
he had made a blunder which would
have to be rectified, and he has cau
tiously been feeling his way back to
solid ground. He is not yet ready to
make the final leap, but is preparing
for it and, when he does, Oregon and
Washington will benefit. Incidentally
it might be mentioned that the men
who gave the secretary bad counsel
have heard from it, and have been
warned to display more intelligence and
common sense in future
ONLY AMERICANS AS CONSULS'.
Root Will Not Appoint Foreigners if
He Can Help It.
Washington, Nov. 18. Not a single
foreigner has been anpointed to the
American consular service abroad since
Secretary Root assumed office. He
feels that it is his duty to "put none
but Americans on guard." Aside from
the fact that a foreigner naturally
might be expected to take less interest
than an American in the development
of our trade abroad, it is felt that in
time of political stress, wherein rela
tions might become strained, no such
test should be placed upon the loyalty
of a foreign consular agent to his na
tive country as would be imposed by
requiring him to do his full duty to
the country which merely employed
So, although a number of vacancies
have occurred in these posts since Sec
retary Root assumed office, he has held
consistently to the policy above laid
down, and where it has not been possi
ble to find Americans to fill the vacan
cies, the offices have been allowed to
remain vacant. Of course, the vacan
cies cannot continue indefinitely, but
the secretary hopes that, with the
pressure of the business world behind
it, congress will yield to his appeal for
more liberal compensation for these
small posts, so as to enable him to send
out American officials.
Ballot Reform in New York.
New York, Nov. 18. At a confer
ence yesterday between representatives
of organizations interested in ballot re
form, a resolution was adopted declar
ing that ballot reform in New York
should proceed on the lines of the Aus
tralian ballot as in use in Massachu
setts. As the representative of the
Corrupt Practices association, D. Cady
Herrick asked the support of the con
ferees for a bill which his organization
intends to preeent to the legislature
and which he eaid would be drawn so
as to do away with election corruption.
Peasants Sack an Estate.
Kursk, Russia, Nov. 18. Agrarian
disorders are increasing. The estate of
Prince Kassalkine Rostkoftsky, in the
Novoskol district, has been sacked by
peasants, who attacked and wounded
the prince and princess. Several build
ings were burned and cattle and horses
driven off. The police commiBeary has
Bent an urge it appeal to the govern
ment for regular. troops to aid the Cos
sacks, who are powerless to cope with
Pan International Parliament.
Paris, Nov. 18. Representatives of
the parliaments of the principal na
tions will assemble hero November 18
to consider the American appeal for a
permanent international parliament
and a general arbitration treaty, as
presented at the Brussels parliamentary
conerw by Congressman Richard Bar
ttieldt, of Missouri, who represented
tbe UniUd States at the congress.
CASTRO REPUSES TO PAY MORE
Keeps Back Second Installment on
Paris, Nov. 17 The foreign office is
advised that President CaBtro yesterday
refused to pay the second installment
of the Plumloy arbitration award. The
arbitration covered damages sustained
by Fronch citizens in Venezuela during
the revolutionary periods prior to 1003.
Judge Frank Plumloy, of Northfield,
Vermont, was president of the arbitra
tion committee, which mot at North
field last year. Tho judgment was in
favor of France, which was awarded
about $050,000, and President Castro
paid the first installment of tho award
throe months ago. The second pay
ment was due yesterday, but wbb not
Apparently the Venezuelan Presi
dent's failure to pay the installment
was on tho cround that dinlnmatin r-
lationa between France and Venezuela
aro interrupted. The officials hero do
cline to admit that this justified Presi
dent Castro in not paying the install
ment. Tho incident is considered to be
a further provocation.
OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST
CZAR HELPS PEASANTS.
Remits Millions Due on Lands and
Makes Purchase Easy.
London, Nov. 17. A dispatch from
St. Petersburg to Router's Telegram
agency Bays that an imperial manifesto
granting land concessions to the peas
ants was issued this morning. By its
terms the land redemption tax pay
ments irom January 14, 1900, will bo
reduced by one-half, and from January
14, 1907, the payments will be totally
At the same time the capital of the
Peasant bank is increased and the bank
is granted additional loan privileges
with the object of facilitating to tho
utmost tho purchase of lands by peas
ants. It is estimated that the amount of
taxation thus lifted from the peasants
by the manifesto will aggregate $40,
000,000, while the extension of the
field of operations of the Peasants'
bank will enable vast tracts of crown
and private lands gradually to become
the property of the peasants.
PRETENDER LEADS PEASANTS.
Army of 50,000 Supports Usurper's
Claim to Czardom.
8t. Petersburg, Nov. 17. A false
emperor has suddenly made his appear
ance near Penza', and already his fol
lowers number 50,000. This is the
startling report received this afternoon
in a dispatch from Sim brisk. Penza is
in the heart of the vast region extend
ing westward from the Volga, where
agrarian uprisings on a large settle have
occurred, and if the report turns out to
be true that tho pretender to the throne
has placed himself at the head of the
peasantry, the government will soon
face, besides its other troubles, a form
idable agrarian rebellion. It required
a year to suppress the famous rebellion
led by Pugaticheff, who impersonated
the dethroned and murdered Peter III
in the time of Catherine II. That up
rising was started in .the same region
on the banks of the Volga.
STORM CLOUD IN AFRICA.
Germany Protests Aeainst an Anglo
French Agreement in Liberia.
Washington, Nov. 17. The State de
partment has learned that Germany
has protested to Great Britain and
France against the conclusion of certain
negotiations now on foot between those
two governments, and the government
of Liberia. Liberia wished to borrow
some money and is willing to hypothe
cate certain territory as security. Ger
many sees in this proposition a threat
of undue expansion of British and
French influence in that quarter of
Africa. The State department has not
felt called upon so far to take any ac
tion in this matter, and in fact regards
the communication merely as information.
Anarchy at Vladivostok.
St. Petersburg, Nov. 17. The latest
reports from Vladivostok indicate that
the riotint? has not vet been suppressed.
Both sailors and fortress artillerymen
particapated in the outbreak. The
commandant lost his head, the situa
tion got beyond control, and energetic
measures were not taken until a laree
part of the city had been destroyed.
The population is still seeking refuge
on the vessels in tno narbor. Accora
int? to one report from Vladivostok. 300
rioters, mostly sailors and artillerymen,
were killed or wounueu.
Battleship Idaho Not Ready.
Washington, Nov. 17. The Navy
epartment has not been advised by tho
Cramp Shipbuilding company that any
date has been set for launching the bat
tleship Idaho, although Senator Hey
burn has been informed that it will take
place December 0. The Idaho is only
40 per cent completed. It is unusual
to launch ships in that early stage, and
it seems improbable that tho launching
would be fixed for a date so near with
out notifying tho Navy department.
Standard Oil's Big Dividend.
New York, Nov. 17, The Standard
Oil company has declared a quarterly
dividend of $10 a share. The previous
dividend was $0 a share and the divi
dend at this time last year was $7 a
share. Today's declaration brings the
total dividends focr the year to $40 a
share. Last year it was $30,
PORTAGE ROAD WILL PAY.
Low Water In River Has Interfered
With Its Traffic.
Salem 'That the Portage railway
will be self sustaining when regular
traffic has been established, there is no
doubt," said Superintendent L. S.
Cook, of the Celilo Portago railway,
when in 8alem to attend a mooting of
the Portago commission. "For various
reasons we have not been getting the
business wo should have had at the
start, but present difficulties will be ro
movod and avoided in tho future.
"Low wator has mado it impossible
for the boatB on tho upper river to take
on wheat at somo places to bring it
down to Celilo. For example, at
Quentin thero was 12,000 Backs of
wheat piled up on the shore, but the
water was so low the boatB could not
get near enough to load. Some 150,000
sacks of grain along tho Upper Colum
bia have been shipped out by rail, when
under normal conditions of wator, it
would havo como down by boat and the
"I cannot, givo exact figures at pres
ent concerning tho oxpendituro and in
como, because wo havo not mado settle
ments with transportation companies
when the charges aro collected by ono
line and tho amount apportioned. In
round numbers I should say that it
costs us $800 a month to operate tho
road and our income is about $600 a
month. If we wore gotting all tho
traffic that is available and naturally
tributary to tho portage road, we would
have an income of $1,200 a month and
an expense of perhaps $1,000. Wo
have handled 10,000 to 15,000 sacks of
wheat this month, whereas wo would
havo handled much more if the boats
could havo reached it."
WANT WATER FOR CANAL.
Deschutes Irrigation 8c Power Com
pany Files on Water Rights.
Salem The Deschutes Irrigation &
Power company has made two water
filings to eecuro new sources of water
supply for ita extensive irrigation sys
tern near Bend. The present source of
supply is about two miles abovo tho
town of Bend, hut it is understood that
the land upon which tho headgato is
located is owned or controlled by A. M
Drake. The Deschutes conpany haB
now made a filing for 1,000 cubic feet
of water per second about three miles
further up the stream. The filing is
ior the purpose of securing water for
the Central Oregon canal. The other
filing is for 1,500 cubic inches per
second at a point about 10 miles above
Bend, at Bebam falls. The filing is
for the purpose of securing water for
the Benham falls canal, which will ex
tend eastward and northward a distanco
of 30 to 40 miles, bringing the water
to Prineville and irrigating large areas
of land north of the canal.
The Portland Irrigation company,
represented by Edwin Mays, of Port
land, has filed on 15,000 inches of
water in Chewaucan creek, Lake coun
ty, the point of diversion being in sec
tion 34, township 33 south, range 18
Fruit Drier Closes. Down.
Freewater J. P. McMinn, proprie
tor of the large fruit drier north of
Freewater, haB closed for the season,
after a very short run, owing to the
scacrity of prunes and the active de
mand and high price paid for the green
fruit, 75,000 pounds being the output
this year as compared wltn zuu,uuu
pounds last year. Heretofore he has
shipped his prunes east, disposing of
the same in tno large cities at prices
from 3, to 3 cents a pound. He has
sold half of this year's output at o
cents a pound to Pendleton and Walla
Sandlake May Talk.
Oloverdale The Clbverdale Tele
phone company this week completed
ten miles of new telephone lino to
Sandlake. The company has also late
lv cnmnlnfpd Hn linn to Dolnh. This

by way of Willamina. Tho system now
embraces over GO miles of wire.
Work on Coquille Bar. ,
Bandon Work on the north jetty at
Coquille bar is now fairly under way,
andjwill be completed probably within
a year. This is part of the improve
ments along the Coquille river, for
which tho government recently appro
priated $55,000. The jetty will bo ex
tended 555 feet seaward. Contractors
Wakefield & Jacobsen, of Portland, havo
the task in hand, and extensive work
had to bo done before the actual vork
of building tho extension was started.
Winter Irrigation a Success.
Milton W. T. Shaw, tho well known
Hudson bay rancher, was in the city
recently and reports that irrigation on
the line of the Hudson Bay ditch is
increasing. This ditch uses the sur
plus water of the Walla Walla river,
and as a result it can only irrigate when
the ordinary irrigation season ends,
Car Shortage Felt,
f Freewater Owing to tho scarcity of
cars on this division the Peacock and
Eagle mills are working at a great dis
advantage on account of storage capaci
ty being blocked with millstuffs ready
to ship. Manager J. H, Hall advises
he has 20 cars of flour and feed ready
to wove and can get but one car a day,

Baker City Merchants Protest Against
Numbering of Rural Boxes.
Bakor Citv Tho merchants of Baker
City aro circulating a potition asking
the postmaster general to withdraw his
order to tho effect that all rural mall
boxes must be numbered in consecutlvo
order. In thh work thoy have asked
tho aid of all tho merchants from BoIbo
to Spokane, and petltionB havo been
sent to theso towns for circulation.
Tho merchants allego that tho num
bering of the mail boxes on tho rural
free doliverv routes would givo the cat-
aloguo houses in tho largo cities like
New York, Chicago and St. LouIb a
great advantage, as these big concerns
would be enabled to send out tlioir cat
alodues and other literature to overy

Oregon and Washington Suffer From
"Too Many Cooks."
Washington, Nov. 15. "The Mal
heur irrigation project in Eastern Ore
gon is reeking with graft," said a high
official of tho Interior department to
day, "and until this graft has been
eliminated tho government will not
adopt and build tho project which the
Reclamation service has prepared. The
government does not propose to be held
This statement was made by an offi
cial vory closo to Socrotary Illtohcock,
and ho, apparently, knows whereof he
speaks, for ho but recently returned
from Mainour county, whore he made
careful investigation into tho ontlro ir
rigation situation, and found such con
ditions as warranted him in recom
mending ngalnBt tho immediate con
struction of that project. It is his
candid opinion that tho timo is romoto
when tho government will undortako
tho construction of tho Malheur project;
indeed, he has doubts whether that
projoct will over bo built by govern
Thero is no just reason why tho
Umatilla project should bo delayed ono
day. It has boon demonstrated that
thero is money availablo; the technical
objection is trivial and ought to bo
waivod. Tho Maxwell company mere
ly asks to retain 300 acres, with wator
right, but Mr. Hitchcock rules that,
under tho law, this company can havo
but 100 acres, with wator right, over
looking tho fact that tho threo members
of tho Maxwell company, should thoy
nick 4 entry individually, could each
hold 100 acres, or 480 acroa in all, with
water rights attached. .
Tho samo thing is truo of the aunny-
sido project in tho Yakima valloy, In
Washington. Tho Bunnysldo canal
ownors aro willing to sell out for $1,
500,000, but they nak to rotain moro
than 100 acres of tho land they now
own, with wator right attached, and
tho secretary is unwilling to grant thorn
this privilege So ho holds up that
project, which in the opinion of tho re
clnmation engineers is vory attractive
and can bo acquired to advantage at
Represontativo Jones, through his
secretory, today made inquiry as to
why Mr. Hitchcock refused to approve
the Tietan and Okanogan projects, and
found, as previously stated, that both
were sidetracked "becauso tlioro is no
money." Neany a year ago Mr. Hich
cock allotted $2,800,000 for the con
struction of the Palouso project, but
tho reclamation engineers recommended
indefinite postponement of this under
taking, and it has been temporarily
abandoned because of oxcossivo cost.
It has been decided to withdraw tills
allotment, which contains enough
money to build tho Tietan and Okanog
an projects, and purcbaso tho -Sunny
Bide canal as well, yet tho department
still cries "no money." There is much
quibbling among officials over tho exact
status of irrigation projects in Dregon
and Washington, but the situation is
as represented : There is money enough
in both Btates for immediate work, but

Bargain in Irrigation Works.
Washington, Nov. 15. A nonpartis
an delegation from New Mexico called
on the president to discuss with him
the proposed sale to tho government o
an irrigation project which has boon
built to irrigato tho Pecos valloy. Tho
dam and its contingent syetem were

cost of $760,000. Last spring a tlood
carried away a part of tho dam and loft
tho reservoir practically dry. Tho
farms, orchards and gardens, which
were irrigateu uy tno system, are
