FEAR UNITED STATES
Colombia Not Anxious to Stir Up
Trouble at Present.
TURNS DOWN RIVAL CANAL DEAL
Chilean Engineer Abandons Schemo
of Building Second Waterway
Fncatntiva, Colombia, Nov. 18.
'Arturo Undurraga, the Chilean engi
neer, has definitely determined to aban
don his efforts to obtain from tho Co
lombia government a concession for his
canal project, owing to tho fear enter
tained by Colombia of roprisals on the
part of tho United States. "Undurra
ga 's plan was to construct a rival to
tho Panama canal.
In furtherance of his plan for a
canal, Undurraga sought to induce con
gressmen and members of tho diplo
matic corps to inspect tho route at his
expenso, but all declined. ,
A Colombian official has stated that
it appeared inopportune to grant a con
cession to the Chileans bef oro tho
adoption of tho treaty defining tho
boundary between Panama and Co
lombia. When this matter had been settled,
lie added, tho government probably
would grant tho concessions. Letters
exhibited here indicate the willingness
of German and British capitalists to
build a commercial and non-political
canal that could not be closed in event
Unless the concession is granted it is
feared discontent fomenting at Antio
quia and Cauca will culminate in a re
vival of threats of secession.
Undurraga will sail on November 27
for England by way of New York.
Tho president and congress have ap
pointed a commission to investigate the
separation of Panama from Colombia.
Francisco do Borda, recently ap
pointed minister to the United States,
6ailed for that country today.
PLATINUM FOUND IN SAND.
Discovery Will Mean Much to Coast
Miners in Small Way.
Los Angeles, Nov. IS. Davis T.
Day, United States geological director
of government petroleum work on the
Pacific coast, left here tonight to make
a report to the government in Wash
ington. Mr. Day also is in charge of
the research -work in connection with
nlatinum mininc on the coast.
For several months he has conducted
an investigation of tho beach sands
from Cape Flattery to Lompoc. Before
leaving tonight he said:
"I believe that when the facts con
cerning the platinum mining industry
as we have found them are known, a
creat stimulus will be given.
"Platinum can be taken from the
sands of this coast in paying quantities
by a simple mechanical process at lit
tle expense, while the industry is not
likely to attract the attention of the
big corporations, it will prove of im
mense interest to the miner in a small
CASE CENTUBY OLD ENDS.

sent several million dollars, will revert

REFORESTATION IS EASY.
(Concluded from lost week.)
I am tbld that 'Germany sponds several
million marks annually to ralso trees,
and receives annually inoro than twico
as much money from tho salo of timber
than sho expends.
I would also ndvocato tho imposing
upon all logged-off lands a b&Blo tax
sufficiently high to insure tholr rovert
ing naturally to tho stato for a reason
able compensation, tho lands to bo util
ized in raising trees for futro goncra
tions; tho levying of this tax to bo sus
pended in case private owners should
wish to set aside their logged-off lands
for tho purpose of raising timber under
state regulations; this timbor to pay a
cutting tax at tho timo it is cut.
Tho dotails of such a tax and tho sot
ting aside of loggod-off lands for tho
raising of timber by private owners aro
matters that can bo worked out; tho in
terests of the people protected; tho rev-
onuo which tho timber and lumber in
terests should rightfully pay tho stato
providedj but collected in such a man
ner as will help conserve our forests in
stead of encouraging owners to cut and
waste them, as undor our present system
of taxation. I am firmly of tho opinion
that if our forests aro to bo consorved
aud now forests grown, the first step
nocessary is tho revision or evolutioniz
ing of our system of taxation.

Nearly 40,000 Acres Now Under Suc
Klamath Falls During tho past 12

of land havo been placed under irriga

population of tho irrigated districts has
moro than doubled. , Unirrigated lands
havo advanced from $5 to $20 an acre,

Largest Wheat Acreago in History.

has put tho farmers lato in killing tho
woods and seeding tho extra acreage.

weather the busy season will bo over,
Blue stem is growing very popular with
My conclusions regarding the growth
of timbor are as follows:
Red fir will attain an average diam
eter of 16 to 18 inches m 40 years; hem
lock a diameter of 18 to 20 inches in the
same length of time. The growth of
tho timber examined by me is about two
inches in diameter during tho past 10
years for trees 40 to 50 years old, and
one inch in diameter for trees 125 to
250 years old. The growth on trees 400
years old is hard to read without a
