"Peace won't keep house with fear,"
adding: .: .
"The .war to get peace is pot by
being so prepared as to invite war, still
less by 'using words which are not

scrupulous Justice and courtesy toward

TON BUREAU OF THE JOURNAL.)
It is understood that the senate Judi
ciary committee will report without
recommendation the Hadley bill to rat
ify the Joint fisheries agreement be
tween the states of Oregon and Wash
ington. Senators Overman, Walsh and Borah,
constituting a sub-committee of the
Judiciary committee, have heard the
views of Senators Chamberlain and
Lane, the former favoring and the lat
ter opposing the compact, and in view
of the disagreement between the Ore
gon senators will throw the matter on
the floor of the senate for final de
termination. Xiane Drafts Amendment.
Senator Lane has drafted an amend-

the existing law, the ratification shall

people of Washington change the ex

Lane. "Things have been going on as

not be long until November. The people

all I am contending for.

Compton, an attorney of Portland, who

urging that an unexpended balance of
140,000 be used to repair the sea end
of tha jatty. - -r '
This balance is what is left of J7,-
000 appropriated for repairing a break
in the north Jetty, near the land. This
work has been done, and. as the sea
has also torn gaps In the outer end of
the Jetty, the Bandon people wanted
the rest of the money used to restore
that part of the work. Lieutenant Col
onel Potter, diviaion engineer at Port
land, was called on for report, and he
ave his conclusions at length.
Oolonel rotter Questions regality.
He saya the expenditure of the rest
of tha appropriation for the purpose
desired would be of doubtful legality,
since the project is already completed
and the depth provided for has been
attained; that as shallow water exists
where a greater depth should be found
well inside the ends of the standing
Jetty, it cannot be expected that the
controlling depth would be increased,
and that surveys under way to tell how
greater depth can be secured should be
completed before additional money is
spent, even though the Port of Ban
don is willing to put up half the ex
pense of repairing the Jetty.

MoHarg Shifts Again.
Ormsby McHarg, a wandering comet
of politics who is always prodigiously
busy Just before the national conven
tions, has produced an anti-climax by
closing up his "business man for pres
ident" headquarters in New York. Last
reports did not have him relocated.
McHarg a few weeks ago gave out
breesy interviews to the effect that
the fight at the convention will be
Roosevelt against the field. At that
time he seemed to have no great ad
miration for the field. Later he ap
peared as a moving spirit of an or
ganization that spent considerable
money advertising the need of a busi
ness man as a candidate. The busi
ness man in mind was not always
named, but it was understood to mean
T. Coleman du Pont of Delaware.
Now it is an open guess as to where
McHarg will next appear, for whom,
and for how long. His political af
fections seem to shift easily, afid

Senator Myers has reported from
the senate committee on public lands
a bill introduced by him setting aside
150,000 for sinking artesian wells in
northern Montana. Under the plan of
this bill the interior department is
authorized to equip successful wells,
apply the water to irrigation and es
tablish a charge for the water, the
revenue to create a revolving fund for
continuation of the work.
Secretary Lane has approved the
general features of this plan. It is
his idea that after a government well
has demonstrated the existence of a
supply for Irrigation, other wells in
the same artesian basin will be de
veloped by aettlers on their own lands.
