Representative N. Whealdon of Wasco
county was in the city yesterday . on
private business, from his ; home,- The
Dalles. .At the recent special session
of the. legislature he introduced the bill
to secure an : appropriation of f 100.000
to buy the right of way for the Celllo
"The length of the Celllo canal,; said
he last evening at the Hotel Perkins,
"is about eight and a half miles. The
land along the proposed, route la sandy,
and rocky,. and is valuable only as pro
tecting fishing and cannlrlg . interests.
The canal will separate the .canneries
from the river and . railroad transpor
tation, and there is, where ,the damage
to the 'property comes lntl The" great
est damage will be; during the construc
tion of the canal, : which-will.,, require. T
understand, from .four.to rve year. To
overcome all damages so far as 'possible
I understand that Major Langfltt of the
United States engineering corps contem
plates the construction of cantilevar
bridges where they may be needed,"
' "Will there be any opposition from
the landholders or the railroad to the
securing of the right of way?" he was
asked. , "
. VI do not think there wAll be., The land
owners along the route are not obstruc
tionists. .,.) Nearly half of the land. Is
owned by a Portland firm and the re
mainder by people of The Dalles. I un
derstand, also," that the O. R. N. Co.
will, not oppose the rlghf of way. I
was told eo'by Mr. Cotton, the com
pany's, attorney. The : proposed route
pniy touches ' the company's right of
way In '.a" few places where" v C6mes
Withln'40'to 60 feet of the tra,ck.vido
not 'anticipate any opposition' anywhere
to the right of way for the canal. ''
"As a member of the legislature from
Wasco county," said Mr. Whealdon, in
concluding, "I want to express my ap
preciation . of the co-operation of, the
members from all sections of the state
In securing this 1100,000 appropriation!
There was no member antagonlstic to it:
all favored it It Is the greatest publie
Improvement ever undertaken In. the his
tory of Oregon, and will result in almost
Incalculable benefit to the atate.i It
means a new era of commerce not- only
for Eastern Oregon but , for the -whole
state. It will make the wheat, stock
and other products of the great; Inland
