f OREGON ON THE BLACKLIST-
IT APPEARS that Oregon isi blacklisted n.-Y ash.
ington.'D. C in regard to irrigation project. The
Klamath reclamation project i apparently going
through, but that ia, realty California rather than an
Oregon enterprise, though credited to Oregon, for most
of the-trad of that region- goesi to-San-Francisco i
Sacraraeuto. .The Malheur project baa been abandoned,
for the present at least, fcecauseyK alleged by settlers,
of the impossible conditions imposed by the owner!
of the! Willamette Valley At Cascade Mountains Wagon
road land grant. There was much hope of the govern
ment taking hold of the Umatilla project; months hav
been spent in surveying and investigating;' it was re
' ported, unofficially at least, as entirely feasible; large
expectations were indulged in on account or the' favorable
outlook' there; but now it is announced that it is to be
turned down, and nothing-, more in the way of reclama
tion work done in Oregon, although Oregon bas con
tributed far more than any other state or territory to
the reclamation fund. " j, ' '.'C "T ' Ta'f x7-. ,
, This is discouraging, and we believe it is not right
or just. Secretary Hitchcock says that projects decided
on elsewhere will exhaust the fund; there ia nothing left,
for Oregon He h reputed to be a stickler for observ
ance of law; and yet in this, he violates the spirit if not
the. letter of .the law, which, requires the fund to be
expended, as nearly-as possible, where project are
feasible, in the several 'states and territories in propor
tion to their contributions thereto. If the Umatilla
project is feasible he has no right, under the law, -to
divert the money contributed by Oregon to Nevada,
Arizona," "Washington, or'-elsewhereV-'''-s-V.V " .
We do not blame Senator Fulton.' for : being "dis
gusted." So are the -people of Oregon generally "The
secretary takes the money from the sale of our lands
and spends it like water elsewhere, but can find nothing
"feasible" in this state," or if he does saya the imoney
is all gone. Senator Fulton is right; this is an "outrage.

LOOK OUT s FOR LEGISLATIVE CANDIDATES.
VOTERS of Multnomah county cannot begin too
soon to consider whom they will nominate next
r. .spring for the legislature. , Thirteen representa
tive and two senators -must be .chosen. Where so many
are to be selected it is-easy. for unfit men to secure
nomination." Unlesi'public" attention is carefully directed
to the matter Multnomah's delegation will be as un
representative of the real interests of the county a has
been the case more than once in the past. ' . 1
.. It is unsafe to leave the consideration of candidates
until the eve of the primaries. As a general rule, the
: least desirable candidates for office are those who are
most anxious for election. Such candidates are atway
early in the field and unremitting In their efforts. Some
, of them have already appeared as aspirants for member.
Multnomah county is deeply -concerned in -sending to'
. Salem a delegation of representative men honest, in
corruptible, loyal to the interests of the people. - Such
men are not easy to find and the search cannot begin
.too soon.- Moreover the fight, foe an'ablc and honest
delegation will be infinitely easier before rather than
1 after the -pt imaries. Victory in the primaries will almost
certainly insure victory in the election. .
There are many excellent citizens of Maltnomah who,
if they would consent to serve,, would represent the
! 'county ably and conscientiously- ' Most of them would
probably -be exceedingly reluctant to serve in th legis
' lature. . Yet they are the men who should be chosen;
- and if such material is to be secured the canvass for it
"must begin early. - -

and apparently with evidence to support the assertion,
that Chinese of the, exempt Classes have been unjustly

evidently pleased tha audience,
There Is a bit of tangibility about
tha play and plot,-although-tha author
Intended It mostly for laughing pur

her out nf th way, having introduced
th tramp a a nobleman. It dovelop
later that It la th aunt who ha th

after her, but Hooligan haa by thla
time won her affection, and they ar
about to elope. Unexpectedly, he lose
