URGE ONE BUILDING,
Oregon Men Want United Northwest
at Jamestown Exposition.
Portland, Oot, 10 A movement for
a Joint Northwest building at the
Jamestown Tercentennial exposition
was launched at a recent meeting of tho
Oregon Jamestown Exposition commit.
toe at tho Portland Oommernlal club,
President Jefforson Myers and Secre
tary, John II. fllevonsonn, of tho con
mission, wore directed to write an ofll.
olal letter to the governors of Washing
ton, Idaho and Montana, notifying
them of the attitudo of tho Oregon
commission, and asking them to take
action In their ofllcial capacities to
tiring about participation In tho plan
on uio part oi tlieir reepetivo states.
Til plan is concolved by tho On-con
commission is for joint action on tho
part of tho four Northwestern states in
the erection of one magnificent oxhlblts
and headquarters structure, in which
each stato shall have a department of
its on, tuo ox pen ao to bo borno equal
ly by the sovoral states. It was point
ed out at the commission' eoaaion that
such co-oporatlvo action would have
tho effect of Impreesing tho East with
tho unity of Northwest interests and of
exerting both a political and commer
cial Inslgiiiflcanco. It also eoemed an
parent that with the combined capital
of tho four states a building of such
imposing size and beauty could bo
erected that It could not fall to attract
wide attention, whllo a building by
any one of tho states, singly, could not
hftvo this oiled, and, bosides, joint ac
tion could reduce the expense ot put
ting up individual buildings.
Presldont Myors was authorized to go
to tho scone of tho exposition and ne
gotiate for a slto for an Oregon build
ing, In tho event it is desired to erect
ono, and also keep in mind the possi
bility of a joint state building. He
will dofor his departure for the East
until he has bad timo to hear from the
governors of the Northwest states on
the plan suggested. In the event ihe
other states do not show a disposition
to adopt tbo plan proposed, this will
not bo allowed to Interfere in any do-
grco with Oregon's p'an to mako an ex
hibit, should the legislature warrant it.
Upon his return from the East Pres
ident Myors will mako a report to tho
commission, and Governor Chamber-
ain on tho result uf his investigations,
and this report, setting fortli in detail
tho coat nf making an exhibit and tho
facilities for erecting a building and
installing nn exhibit, when delivered,
will bo used as the basis for appearing
before the legislature to ask such an
appropriation as shall bo nccceeary to
make a credltablo showing.
FARMERS MUST DRAIN.
Department of Agriculture Issues Bul
letin of Instruction.
Washington, Oct. 10. For tho guid
ance of the great numberof people from
humid rogions who sottlo on the im
mense areas of Western lands opened to
settlement, tho Department of Agricul
ture has issued a report on "Practical
Information for Beginners in Irrigation."
Thero aro several million acres open
for settlement in tbo United States,
and irrigation works built by private
enterprise and works being constructed
by tbo national government will pro
vide a wator supply for more than 1,'
000,000 acres of arid lands. The 70
port discusses arid soils and water sup
plies generally and describes bow to
locate and build farm ditcher, prepare
land to receive water, irrigate staple
crops and how mncli water to apply.
"Experience throughout the arid re
gion," the report says, "Is demon
strating that the greatest danger to Irri
gated lands is lack of drainage. Water
applied to crops ralaoa the ground wa
tor. which brings with it tho salts (lis
solved from the soil; capillarity brings
thlB wator to the surface, where it
evaporates, and tho salts accumulate
until all vegetation is destroyed. Tho
only insurance against this Is proper
drainage, but anything like economy in
tho uao of wator and thorough cultiva
tion, which will check tho rise of
ground water or lesson evaporation,
will decreaeo tho danger."

SELF GOVERNMENT IMPOSSIBLE

Washington, Oct, 10. Republican
senators and congressmen who have
been in Washington recently and ofll
cials closolv identified with tbo admin
istration agree with the president that
Cuba shall have another opportunity to
try self government, but tho opinion is
almost universal that annexation is
only a matter of time. Little is being
said publicly about the probability of
annexing Cuba to the United States,
but tho subject is receiving a great deal
of atlontion in Washington and public

President Roosevolt Ib absolutely, sin-

ment. Ho does not want the island
mado a part of the United States if, by
any possibility, the Cubans can con
duct their own affairs and protect the
lives and property of all their citizens.
Ho does not believe that tbo United
States at this time would bo justified
in taking over the island, morely be
cause vast amounts of American capital
havo been invested. But if tho words
of othor administration officials can bo
held to bo authoritative, it is to be in
let red that tbo president will intorposo
no further objection to annexation in

While annexation is generally ex

It is probable that the men in con

and tobacco from Cuba in cbbo of an

Triumphal arches were among the
most peculiar forms of art which the
Romans borrowed from those around
them, and used with that strange mix
ture of splendor and bad taste which
characterizes all their works.
These were in the first instance no
doubt borrowed from the Etruscans, as
was also tho ceremony of the triumph
with which they were ultimately asso
ciated. At first they seem rather to
have been used as festal entrances to
the great public roads, whose construc
