Will Not Willingly Yield Manchurian
Interests Dearly Bought.
Tokio, Jan. 1. No doubt may bo
entertained concerning Japan's attitude
toward the American plan to neutral
ize the -Manchurian railways. Secre
tary Knox's proposition has not called
forth a word of favor from any source
in Japan. Tho diplomats here, whilo
disinclined to express opinions, cer
tainly do not support the project.

Big Projoct In Baker County
Walts for Settled Woathor.
Baker City With tho opening of
spring work will begin on tho two res
ervoirs planned by tho Powdnr Valley
Irrigation company, tho main reservoir
being situated in the Thief river val
ley, located onjlho old Fisk and Gilbert
ranches, soven milos east of North
Powdor and 20 miles north of Baker
City. This reservoir will conserve 60,
000 acre feet of water. Tho other res
ervoir, is to be Bituatcd about 30 miles
northwest of Baker City, at the half
way house on the Union atago lino,
near Sanger, and will conaorvo about
24,000 acre feet of wator.
When completed, tho entire system
will irrigate about 65,000 acres of
land, extending from the MiIcb bridge
east to what is known as Table rock,
or five miles east of Gooso creek, on
both sides of Powder river, covering a
strip of fine land about 30 miles wide
The immensity of this irrigation
scheme can hardly bo realized, but tho
difference in the amount of bay, grain
of all kinds, fruit and what not, that
will bo produced on these broad acres
in the very near future, will toll the
tale in tho farmers' bank accounts.
Coyote, Umatllla( May Be Division
Umatilla May Be Abandoned.
Pendleton It now seems that tho
long pending Coyote-Echo cutoff on
tho O. R. & N. iB to become a reality
soon. Rumors ore current hore
among railroad people that tho sum
of $707,946.25 has been appropriated
for that purpose. This, coming on the
heels of the announcement that $1,-
020,000 has been set aside for elimina
tion of curves between Yoakum and
Pendleton, means that the O. R. & N,
contemplates the expending of nearly
$2,000,000 on improvements in Uma
tula and Morrow counties, as it ia now
understood that the big cutoff is to
be made from Coyote to Echo, via
Stanfield, that will eliminate 8.8 miles
of present trackage. Coyote is to be
made a terminal, as it is understood
the order calls for terminal improve
ments, including a ten stall round
house. The general understanding iB
that, as far as the main line is con
cerned, Umatilla will cease to be a di
vision point. It is a matter of specu
lation as to what route the cutoff will
take, as engineers have surveyed three
possible routes. As to the improve
ment between this city and Yoakum,
it is said the work will reduce the dis
tance 14 miles. The maximum curva
ture will be about four degrees, while
at present it is ten. The stretch of
track at Horseshoe curve will be
brought up to a standard roadbed.
Defective Lemons Destroyed.
Roseburg California lemons cover
ed with parasite, known as oyster shell

had them destroyed. Carson stated
that if California is going to continue
to send such fruit into the state, Ore
gon will have to compel an inspection
before sale. This is a condition already
imposed by California on fruit shipped
from Oregon.
To Get Motor Car Service.
Pendleton A motor car is to be in
