Chamberlain Believes Pas

. r Upon Is Now Assured;
Xa Freeent Status, He Sya, It Xaclndes
AU Zaiwntlal rolata of Original
S1U Proposed la Senate.
By George E. Chamberlain.
- SfDttor from Oregon. Chairman of the SeneU
MttUtarr Affairi OommittM.
Waahlnston, May 16. I. N. S.) I
. think tne army reorganization bill the
most constructive piece of military
legislation ever submitted to congress.
' I do not nee how the senate can turn
it down, If It believes in preparedness
at all, and I think Us passage Is as
sured. . There seems to be a mfaunderstand
lng about the conferees' agreement.
All In all, the bill as It now stands is a
splendid measure. Army officers will
tell you that while in total it Is not
What the senate desired. It Is highly
constructive. It gives a nucleus for a
regular army such as we have never
had before.
ships, two dreadnaughta and two battle
It was said tbat In addition to the
capital ships, the construction of the
following, as recommended by the ad
ministration,, will be authorized: Thtee
scout cruisers, 15 destroyers, S fleet
submarines, 25 coast submarines. 2
gunboats and 1 hospital ship.
Provision will be made for large
number of new aeroplanes, an Increase
in the reserve of munitions, and new
buildings for the storage of naval sup
piles. Provision Is llkelv to be made alsi
for an increase in the personnel.
No meeting of the committee on the
subject has been held yet. but there
Is an agreement among the members
that the naval appropriation this year
shall be $110,000,000, which Is $10,000.
000 more than was contained In Secre
tary Daniels' estimates last October.
There is a strong sentiment in con
gress for a larger number of capital
ships than the fousdecided on, and it
was declared by a member of the naval
affairs committee today that if Presi
dent Wilson wants more they will be
voted. There Is, almost unity of senti
ment in the committee it was said, to
give the president whatever he insists
upon concerning the navy.
Minimum Provided Zs
.The senate originally
proposed a
minimum of 178.000 combatants, and
the conferees gave 175.000. (tut the
president is authorized to extend that
to 218,000. That Is exclusive of the
non-combatant force, which Includes
the quartermaster corps, the hospital
and medical corps and the Philippine
scouts. With these, the minimum force
.provided is 205,000, and the entire force
may be expanded to over 250,000.
Of course, the house action on sec
tion 56, providing for the raising of a
volunteer force, made It impossible to
put through the senate provision re
garding camps like that at PlaUsburg.
Early Action Expected.
As finally accepted, though, the bill
Included the, house provisions and add
ed to them what Senator Iodge pro
posed, transportation and uniforms for
the campers. The senate bill original
ly attempted to federalize the national
guard with 250,000 men. plus .61,000
volunteers. The conferees' measure al
lows 800 guardsmen from eaci con
gressional district, making a total na
tional guard enlistment of about 450.
' 000. In addition there will, of course,
be the men trained at the camps, how
many we do not yet know.
The conferees' measure also provides
the utilization of the schools for train
ing and officers' reserve corps.
Thus the senate will hardly refuse
to pass a measure that includes all the
essential points of the original senate

Contest Over Employment of
Chief Deputy State Engi
neer Is Being Waged,
Declares $150 a Month Man Xs Caps'
tie of Handling Work Assigned to
Can tine at $350 a Month.
Salem, Or., May 16. The state high
way commission's discussion of the
question of finding employment for
E. I. Cantlne, chief deputy state en
gineer, waxed warm Monday after
noon. Governor Withycombe and State
Treasurer Kay insisting that work
must be provided for the governors
13000 a year appointee, and State En
gineer Lewis protesting against the
employment of Cantlne on nighway
location work in Grant and other
counties, on the ground that the chief
deputy is not a location engineer, al
though drawing $250 a month, and
the work would be better done by J.
H. Scott, who draws $150 per month.
Lewis pointed out that Grant coun
ty had put up $3000 for the survey
work, and it would be unfair to the
county to load up the overhead charges.
Would Cost Money.
By putting Cantlne on the work, there
would be $250 salary and approximate
ly $125 expenses for him, and it would
be necessary to have under him a man
drawing $150 per month handle the
instruments. On the other hand, if
Scott handles the work, there would
be only the expense of $150 for an
engineer, and Lewis would do what
ever directing was necessary, he ex
plained. II. K. Donnelly, of his de
prtrtment, had already gone over the
proposed route, and. with the informa
tion obtained from him. and throueh ;
other sources, Lewis said he felt that i
he could direct Scott and eliminate !
additional expense. He asserted that ,
extreme economy would be necessarv
to get the survey through Grant coun
ty, even with the cooperation of the
forest service, where the road passes
through a government reserve.
Cantlne Will Go.
It was decided to let Cantlne go
over to Wheeler county and meet with
the county court for a conference re
garding the highway through that
county, and leave the matter of a sur
vey through Grant and other coun
ties unsettled until he makes a re
port. County Judge Anderson and Com
missioner Knight, of Clackamas coun
ty, asked the commission to provide
for a survey of a highway between
Xew Era and Canemah. On the the
ory that Wasco county would vote
bonds too late this year, if at all, to
use all of the state appropriation of
$45,000 made for 1916, a sum suffi
cient for the Clackamas county sur
vey was granted. J. H. Scott will be
In charge of the survey. .

Has Irrigation Possibilities.
Salem. Or., May 16. A report issued
by the United States reclamation serv
ice in cooperation with the state en

in the vicinity of Ashland and Med
ford, shows that about 35.000 acres of
land can be irrigated at a cost of $40
per acre, with the waters of Beaver
creek and Little Butter creek, supple
mented by storage in Fish lake and
Four Mile lake. This project has been
