Chicago, July 1 1.- Pessimistic, quia

lnf. Tha departure of Oompcra for New
York, where be- wa called to assist In
the garment worker' strike' Is taken as
n Indication of the hopelessness of the
situation as It at present exists. " ,
Donnelly and his co-wokers met this
morning ta deliberate .on the latest
phase, and. If possible to -ask for, an
other eonference with the packers. At
' the yards .there were no disturbances
during- tha night or early morning hours.
Armour has imported. 10 negroes and
other nonunion help, to come in during
the night. - . ,
' All Indications at tha stockyards to
; day.polnt to a continuance of the strike
' until at Jeaat the latter part of next
- week.. Shlppere throughout the coun
' try generallxiave been advised to dls-
continue makTTig shipments . and espe
cially the usual Monday shipment, which
; to always extremely heavy.
A string vein' of sympathy has been
' created among the various trades unions
at the yards and by many it Is feared
" they may loin tha- men already out and
thus complicate matters ' before aa
' agreement has been reached.
It to estimated that at least 11.000
'. men at the Chicago stockyards are mem
bers ef unions, and from the fact that
- a mass meeting of these men has been
. called for today, the strike situation Is
apparently assuming a more serious
phase, as it is understood that this meet
. ing has been called Jor: the purpose of
deciding what action shall be taken rel
atlvs to continuing work or Joining the
ranks of those who have already left
" their poets.
v Just-.befor noon It was announced
that Donnelly. hod replied to the pack
era' ultimatum, and that tha prospects
were fair for another conference. At 1
o'clock this afternoon the packers again
met In their down-town offloea, and Don
nelly said, sfter a consultation with the
offloers of the firemen's union, that be
had not requested allied labor to go
out. aa ha did not want to embarrass the
pending negotiations, which he consid
ered were still to be finally gone over.
Up to 1 o'clock there had been no vio
i lenee of moment anywhere in the stock

Vale. Or., July -18. At 2 o'clock thlk
afternoqn .a man meeting, was held at
the courthouse in Vale for the puapoe
of providing a permanent , organlzatlph
to do bualneaa . with '.tha. government's
agents In the expenditure oi $2,000,000
appropriated for. the construction or
mammoth reservoir In Malheur county.
About two weeks ago L. E. Newell,
chief engineer of the geological survey.
snd R, Vean, attorney for the govern
ment explained to the people of Vale
and vicinity, the object of the appropria
tion and tha manner In which the peo
ple should proceed to co-operate with
the Diana of the government
For two weeks a corps ' of ' United
States engineers hss been making sur
veys of the land and finds the. project
feasible. The Harper ranch, about 26
miles west of Vala has been- selected
for the proposed reservoir site.- The
land it embraces lies on . the Malheur
river. Lower Willow creek and the
Snake river valley and consists of sbout
100.000 acres. -
The system proposed by the govern
ment Is to put In a substantial cement
reservoIr.wtth a system of canals and
laterals running therefrom and cover
ing ail the land within the propoaed
district Tbe present settlers and the
bomesteadera who will hereafter enter
upon the land will be required to pay
the aame amount per acre for their per
petual water right All water rights
now owned by corporations or Individ
uals within the proposed district must
be surrendered- to the government
Costs S30 aa Acre.
The cost of a perpetual water light
haa been placed at $10 per acre, to be
paid for In 10 years, at the rate of $1
per acre per year. The government will
manage and maintain the system dur
ing this period of 10 years, at the ex
plratlon of which time it will be turned
over -to the settlers' sssoclatlon. It Is
estimated that the coet after the first
10 years will be very light.
To prevent land-jfrabbers fcora kpeo-
tilatlng at the government'a expense, and
to Insure a dense population for the dis
trict, a law has been enacted which pro

Individual or , corporation, who owns

land Into small tracts and list them with

three years, tbe same will be divided
Into small tracs, within the limit and
aold at auction to- the highest bidder,

tha same, and to him will be-deeded the
perpetual water-right
The soil In this proposed district la
very productive, snd with a sufficient
water sdpply alfalfa, hay, cereals, fruits,
and In fact nearly anything that can be
produced In the temperate aone would
flourish abundantly. '

"Most Important Question Af reeling
Oregon .Today," Says T. B.WH
: cox of the Movement to Sc;
cure an Open River.
Business men -pt Portland are keen!
alive to the vast importance of the new
that one more seaaon's work upon the
Columbia river Jetty will virtually solve
the problem of an open river from Port
land to the sea. They are quick to
grasp the of the' rapid
progress that is being mad In the ex
tension of the Jetty and to appreciate
the vaat benefits that will result not
only to Portland. But to all of eastern
Oregon end eaatern Waahlngton aa well.
With the removal of the bar at tha
mouth' of the Columbia the chief Sto
stacle to ocean trafllo will have disap
peared. The task of maintaining an
adequate channel between Portland and
the-sea la a matter of less difficulty; and
its accomplishment admits of no doubt
The next great problem will bethe con
struction of the Celllo canal. but thifc,
too, gives promise of early achievement
for the scqutHltton of the right of way
Is not far distant.
In discussing the news published In
The Journal as to the progress of the
Jetty work, T. B. Wilcox, president of
the Portland flouring mills." said this
morning; 1 .
"I am very glad to see The Journal
taking up what I Consider the moat Im

nothing the accomplishment of whlclt

great an expenditure for Portia rid or
even the three northwestern states,
were they willing ta eo-operate, to at

sufficient funds to pro acute the jetty
work during this season, and no doubt
a sufficient additional appropriation can
be obtained In the next river and harbor
bill to complete the Wrath Jetty at least '
and the necessity of the north Jetty la
not yet apparent In connectioa' with
the appropriation for tne Jetty. Port
land and all Oregon and eastern Waah

obtain an appropriation sufficient for
two years', steady work In putting in
permanent and controlling works on tha
river between Portland and the bar.
"I know of no project that hss been
