Mwell under way. to make productive
ISO.OOO acre of land now useless. Of
that area there wilt be - 1I.00O - acres
, ready for the plow of the Irrigator nest
spring. The maximum amount any one
can take under the law Is 10 acres. The
. ' average farm- will not exceed I acre.
'It ta apparent that a large number of
actual farmers must shortly appear on
the (round and begin preparatory work
if the Klamath Irrigation project Is to
. bo launched with a -reasonable degree
;- of financial success. The engineers are
constructing the canals and ditches and
.have available an enormous supply of
water. The greater taak of getting
; actual farmers on the land seems not
to hare taken the form of a definite,
' .organised and - effective ' movement

.construction of the Irrigation system.
- under the supervision of D. W. Murphy
: of the government -engineers. - Condi-
. tlons at the present time have the ap
pearanoe of clean, able management, and
- the project gives promise of being
"carried through without scandal or ex-
travaganee. The mala canal, which
; leads from the lower end of the upper
Klamath, lake to a point la the desert
nine miles east of the town of Klamath
' ' Falls, is being rapidly constructed. The
: water Is carried from the upper lake
- threugh a tunnel under a hill just north
'-' of ' the - town. - This tunnel Is being
rapidly constructed- -Tbe water- Is ear?
rled from the upper lake through a
' tunnel under the hill Just north of the
town.' ' This tunnel Is being driven from
.: both' ends, and . also by - drifting from
shafts' sunk along the light of way. The
tunnel will - be completed during the
coming winter. It will be 1.100 feet
long. 1IH feet wide on the bottom and
It feet 4 inches high with -an arched
roof. Through It 'will flow a .volume of
water 11 feet high. '

Already 10.000 barrels of cement have
been ordered ' and . these . " are being
dragged over the Cascade mountains in
freight wagons from the Pokegama rail
road terminus to Keno.14 miles, snd
transported by water to Klamath Falls,
Of ths mala canal three miles la now
completed and work on the remaining
six miles Is rapidly progressing. There
are HO teams and 100 men at work for
the eon tractors. Mason. .Davis at -Co. of
Portland. Engineer Murphy , has ' pur
chased 100 horses and employed a force
of men to construct the laterals.
The nine-mile section of the main
canal to be completed In next February
will cover about 11.000 acres of first
class agricultural land that Is now semi
arid, excepting for one third of this
area that la already susceptible of Irri
gation from aa old project, known as
the Ankeny canal, now owned by tbe
government. A large part of the re
mainder, is covered with sagebrush and
still held In private ownership, although
subscribed by the present owners to
tbe government project and subject to
sals under the formula . prescribed by
the Irrigation law.- Each private owner
la allowed to retain 160 acres. . Henust
sell the rest of his holding or ulti
mately submit, to having the - 'Water
Users' association sell It at publlo sale.
The Imperative need today la . the
Klamath country Is actual farmer popu
lation to buy the excess lands-and pre
pare them for cropping next, year, '.
Mason, Da via Co. are . under con
tract ta complete their- nine miles of
mala canal February 1. 1007. They will
move an estimated bulk of 100,000 cubic
yards of earth and ull 4,000 . eublo
yards of masonry. Their contract
amounts to about IJT7.000. The Inter
national Contract company has the Job
of erecting six highway bridges, to cost
17,000, over the main canal Ultimately
there will be hundreds of miles of
canals and ditches. ' - . '
JVew Somes foe? Taon seeds,
Ths Klamath project Is going to pro
vide new homes for 1,000 to (.000
farmers' families, a minimum of 1S.O00
people, and these will mean an equal
number added to the urban population.
An estimate of 10.000 people la very
conservative In figuring the results In
added population from this project
Todav the excess lands caa no securea
at prices ranging from $16 to 1109 per
acre, depending on the proximity to
market and other conditions. A. per
petual water right from the government
Is to be bought for til per acre la 10
annual Instalments without Interest.
No public lands will be open for set-
tlement,under the desert land -or home
stead laws for several years, or until
ths bulk of private lands sre disposed
of.... In fact,. most of the publlo lands
under trie project are at the present
time covered - by the watera of the
Klamath lakes and are to be reclaimed
by the draining of these lakes. The
draining of the lakes will be about the
last thing on the program of the en
gineers. Approximately 100,000 acres
of tbe whole project la now the beds of
Tule lake. Lower Klamath lake and the
marginal swamps around . the latter.
These acres will be tule Unas, the
richest of all. : ,
' Perpetual Water Transportation,
Through this whole project, and ex
tending from Klamath Falls to Tule
lake, will run the channel of the Klam
ath river, providing perpetually water
transportation for the farmers. While
the lakes will be lowered nearly II feet
by the Irrigation plan, the present river
channel will be dredged and deepened,
forming a canal for navigation usee.
At a point where the main canal forks
Into two big main branches the north
and south canals nine miles southeast
of the town of Klamath Fails, the water
will be dropped 16 feet developing 6.000
horsepower. Under a law recently
passed - By - congress the reclamation
service may develop water power-' and
dispose of the same to cities or corpora
tions, under certain restrictions as to
use, maintenance and rates. . The Klam
ath -engineers have thus far -only
planned this power site. Its develop
ment will follow In due course. Nothing
has been done as to, Its final disposition
or use. The needs of Irrigation always
will bs paramount In the use of the
water. 1 - ,

tWlii the - recommendation of Senator
' Fulton of a candidate for collector of

' by tbe president T
. ;!'' When 3. 8. Delllnger, publisher of the
, Astorlan and one of .the aspirants for
7 th position, filed his application direct
with President Roosevelt a tew days
,.' ago another complication was added to
aa already embarrasastng situation, and
as several "exhibits'' that are known to
V have accompanied the document might
'. tend to show that the senator was ualng
the office simply for his own political
' gain. It Is not considered unlikely by
many Astorlans who have watched the
contest that the chief executive may
. take tbe bit In his teeth and make an
appointment strictly to his own liking.
As far as Senator Fulton is concerned,
of course, the affair became a closed
' ' laoident when he forwarded the name
- of Clark W. Camahan to Washington as
his choice for the position, and If all
precedents were to be followed it might
safely be presumed that tbe appoint
.' ment was as good as made. It would

ride Senator Fulton's recommendation
and appoint a man whom no one had
recommended. In the present case,
however, the man whom Senator Fulton
has recommended has an unusually
clean record and It ! bard to see where
flaws could be picked at the national
capital,, even were It so desired.
Notwithstanding Mr. Carnaban's ex
cellent standing, however, it Is believed
that Mr. Delllngefa application, to
gether with the petition and "exhibits"
which accompanied it, will have a de
cidedly bad effect on the candidacy of
the man given the senator's preferment
The petition Is said to contain the
names of many, or In fact, a majority of
the prominent Republicans of Clatsop
county snd it is probable that some
of the "exhibits" will come In for eon
siderabls attention. Among these latter
is a letter which Senator Fulton is al
leged to have written to Mr. Delllnger
la which the senator congratulates the
editor on the success attained at the
recent election In June and on ths part
which Mr. Delllnger's paper, the Morn
ing Astorlan,. took In ths campaign.
This, aa well aa the whole tenor of the
application, ta which the applicant ap
parently aasumss that hla principal and
only claim to the of floe lies In ths
services hs performed for the party in
general and for Senator Fulton la par
ticular, might It is figured, convince
the president that it was a case of "too
much politics" and that political prefer
ment was being given too much con
sideration at the expense of ths charac
ter, standing and general fitness of ths
Friends of Senator Fulton profess to
entertain no alarm over the. latest move
In the Delllnger camp and declare that
Senator Fulton was told by president
Roosevelt personally that be would pay
no attention to Mr. Delllnger's petition.
The recommendation of the senator,
they declare, will be final" with the
Meanwhile the scrap goes merrily on,
leaving the party badly split snd dis
organised for ths coming municipal
election this TalL The situation is not
without Is ridiculous stds as welL
"It was a ease of all hands get In and '
work," said a local party leader a few
oays sftsr ths last election In explain
ing why so large a Republican majority
had been piled up for the county ticket.
Now the public is bsing shown why so
many were working. A number had
cuatom-Aouse aspirations while many
were working to boost their friends for
the position, and It Is s sure guess that
had the appointment been made before
Instead of after the election the Re
publican, ticket would never have won.
All of the candidates. It appears, were
"encouraged" and a few. even declare
they were "promised," although they
do not say by whom. It Is hinted that
other candidates may forward "exhlblla"
to Washington before tbe thing Is finished.

for reelection. . .
Publlo Interest is centered almost en
tirely In the fight for tbe gubernatorial
nomination. The two leaders in the
race are Clark Howell, editor of the At
lanta Constitution, and Moke Smith, edi
tor of the Atlanta Journal and secretary
of the Interior In President Cleveland's
cabinet The, names of J. H. Estill,
edlton-of the Savannah News. Richard

will appear on the ballot for the gov

Hoke Smith Is fighting what he cells
ths Ting snd railroad" domination ef
ths Georgia democracy. But ths promi
nent plank ef hla platform has for Its
object, the disfranchisement of the ne
groes. On ths subjject of disfranchise
ment Smith says:
"I favor, snd If elected wlU orgs with
all tor power the elimination of the ne
gro front politics ss the best possible
solution of the race problem, for both
whites snd blacks. Disfranchisement
can be accomplished by legal and consti
tutional methods, Just as It has been
adopted In North Carol Ins, South Caro
lina, Alabama, Mississippi. Louisiana
sod Virginia, without disfranchises a
Ingle white man. If elected, t would
oppose with ell my power the enact
ment of any legislation that would have
the effect of dlsfrsnehtslng a, single
white voter In Georgia."
Howell's slogan In his fight sgalnat
Smith Is Organised Democracy Againet
Populism and Fusion.' Hs hss bid for
ths straight-out Democratic vote against
Smith, who is regarded as the candidate
of the fusion element. Tom Watson,
Populist candidate for president in 104,
has openly announced his support to
Hoks Smith for governor, snd has ad
vised all populists In the stats to fol
low his example.
The close of ths campaign finds both
sides apparently confident of the result.
Both declare that they will carry the
stats by sn overwhelming majority. -To
an unbiased onlooker It appears to be a
close contest. - .-.,.
