Prcy Xupper Says Harney Re
gion Settlers Oppose Measure;
Cites Burns Civic Club Yote.
, By lercy W. Capper
- B&lem. Or., Oct. ,30. The public
la entitled to know the facta about
Malheur lake and the probable ef
fect of the Roosevelt bird refuge
. measure. tV. X Flnley takes excep
tlon to my statement that the lands
are now In control of the state land
board. The state land board, com
posed of the governor, secretary of
tat and- state treasurer, cays: "This
-bill arbitrarily takes this land from
the school children and gives it away
to the federal government- without
'a Just and due return to the school
If these are state, lands, they are in
control of the state land board. If they
are government lands, as Mr. Finley
wou)d seem to indicate, then the Boose
velt bird refuge measore is useless.
i The present measure, "according to
Flnley, la the result of a compromise be
tween William Hanley and other irriga
tion .Interests of Burns and the Swift
Corbett tntreets of Portland, and the pro
ponents of the measure, and this has
been strongly urged m a reason for the
passage of the measure. When we take
into consideration the fact that the orig
inal measure proposed to give to the fed
eral government ail waters tributary to
Malheur, lake, including Silvies and Bllt
sen rivers, upon which Mr. Hanley and
. the Swlft-Corbett Interests must depend
for any further development of their
holdings, it is not surprising that thee
Interests found it necessary for the pro
tection of their property to agree, to the
compromise measure.
The vote of the Burns Commercial
club, 21 to 1 against the measure, would
indicate that the section moat vitally in
terested fully appreciates the detrimental
effect that the measure would have upon
the development of Harney valley.
The 47.000 acres, a large part of which
Is suitable for agricultural purposes,
should be retained for the benefit of the
Oregon school fund, particularly when
part of the lake can be diked off and
maintained as a bird refuge and the re
' mainder disposed of so as to net several
hundred thousand dollars to the school
fund. The matter should be handled on
a sound business basis for the best inter
ests of the people of the state of Oregon,
and in my opinion this can only be ac
complished through defeat of the pro
posed mesa tare.
William L. Flnley, secretary of
the Roosevelt Bird Refuge associ
ation, has forwarded the following
communication in support of the
initiative measure now on the ballot,
ceding Malheur lake and 40.000
acres of valuable land bel6aglng to
the irreducible school fund of the
state to the federal government as
a perpetual breeding ground and
refuge for wild birds:
"Theodore Roosevelt Issued a special
executive order. No. 929, on August 18.
1908, creating 'Malheur Lake reservation
For the use of the department of agri
culture as a preserve and breeding
ground for native birds.' Since that
time the federal government has had
full charge over the lands and waters
within this reservation, and has em
ployed a warden to protect the birds
that live there. For several years cer
tain promoters have been trying to get
the state of Oregon to gain possession
of this reservation through the courts
so the lake can be drained and the
?lkaU land sold to unsuspecting
"The points at issue in the Roosevelt
bird relufe measure are very plain.
This bill clears the title and the state
does not start a long legal battle with
the federal government It this measure
passes, settlers and land owners will
hold exactly the same water rights as
they now have. The bill does, not inter
fere with irrigation and honest develop
ment in Harney county, but it does
block the promoters' scheme of draining
the lake.
"Roosevelt's Judgment in this matter
was sound; he was greatly interested
In all irrigation problems and also Just
as much Interested in the conservation
of wild Ufa His opinion was that Mal
heur lake was worth more to Oregon
as the greatest wild fowl refuge in the
United States than It would be drained
and destroyed by promoters.
"Theodore Roosevelt was an American
of action and keenforesight His policy
of conservation saved great natural re
sources of our country from special in
terests. It is universally acknowledged
that be deserves honor from the people
of America.
"In a conversation I had with Theo
dore Roosevelt in The Outlook office in
New York concerning Malheur lake
reservation. I said: It will be one of
the greatest memorials to your far
sightedness when both you and I are
gone." He leaned over jn his char
acteristic way and Said: "Bully! I had
rather have it than a hundred stone
"Here is the greatest living memorial
to this great American. Shall we de
stroy it or preserve it?
"Can anything be more appropriate
than at the time that we are celebrating
the birthday of Theodore Roosevelt for
the people of Oregon to vote in favor
of the Roosevelt bird 'refuge measure
I If X YES making permanent the
greatest wild fowl nursery in the United
States, a feature which is unique and
can be capitalised like Crater lake and
the Columbia river highway. I believe
our voters will honor Oregon and Theo
dore Roosevelt"
"Burns. Oct 29. To the Editor 6f The
Journal Every community has its own
plans and hopes for its own future, ana
every community has its own struggles,!
unknown to, outsiders, in carrying out
those plana Now I ask you to imagine
a situation in your own community par
allel with that over hpre in Harney coun
ty ; the big balance of the state planning
to put over on us by popular vote a
measure to take away from us the
waters of Malheur lake.
"The proponents of this bill propose to
cede Malheur lake to the federal govern
ment to be' held with all its waters in
perpetuity as a wild game reserve, the
federal government to control the water
rights, and to be the sole administrators
of these rights now vested in the state
of Oregon. They are making an emo
tional campaign .with moving pictures of
wild bird life. Further, these emotional
ists ask that the bird reserve be set
aside as a memorial to Theodore Roose
velt, forgetting that he loved babies as
well as wild-life, and if the lines were
drawn between the two. would undoubt
edly stand by the babies.
"To the school funds alone this grant
Is worth several hundred thousand dol
lars: to ranchers' families it Is worth
vers1 much more ; as taxable property to
the state, it would be a source of perpet
ual and ever-increasing income: to the
residents of Harney county Malheur lake
represents the very heart and core of Its
plan for development and irrigation.
"The whole thing resolves itself into a
question of birds or babies." The entire
population of Harney county, a popula
tion hired in here by the presence of
lakes and water for future irrigation
purposes begs and prays of you to vote
No. 117 No!
"William Hanley, Chairman."
Insists Local Post
Misrepresented oir
Vaccination Stand
That misrepresentation was employed
by the Public School Protective league
In a leaflet assertion that the American
Legion has indorsed the anti-compulsory
vaccinatlon lew Is asserted In a state
ment by James A. Bain, vice com
mander of the Portland poet of the
American Legion. His statement reads:
There has been called to my attention
a pamphlet published by the Public
School Protective league on behalf of
- the amendment prohibiting' compulsory
vaccination, wherein it states that the
amendment Is indorsed by the American
Legion. . This Is entirely misleading
tn so far as it purports to be an expres
sion of opinion of the American Lesion
--as. a body throughout the state of Ore-
. gon.
The indorsement as therein presented
was secured from the La Grande, Ore
gon, post which is but one of 89 posts
lrt the state of Oregon, and has a mem
bership off 300 out of a total member
ship in the state of 14.000.
The post in the city of Portland where
these pamphlets are being circulated
has taken no action upon this matter,
and none- of the other 88 posts in this
state has taken any action in regard to
am indorsement i uus amenoment. As
a matter of fact, the indorsement of this
amendment by the La Orande post is
contrary to the regulations of the de-
parrmeni oi uregon relating to posts
giving publicity to questions of policy
without first securing the consent of the
state executive committee, and when one
reads this Indorsement as of the Ameri
can Legion It must be borne in mind
that the La Grande post represents but
a. very small per cent of the membership
In the state of -Oregon and In no wise
represents the indorsement of the Amer
ican Legion in Multnomah county or in
, any ether part of the state.

Proposed Ordinance Analyzed and
Benefits Claimed by Segrega
tion Are ShoWn.
In a statement issued Saturday
the city planning commission urges
the enactment of the zoning ordi
nance which appears as 600-501 on
the municipal ballot. The state
ment bears the signatures of J. C.
Ainsworth, B. W. Sleeman, A. E.
Doyle, Ira F. Powers, A. F. Flegel,
E. B. MacNaughton, City Engineer
O. Laurgaard, City Attorney W. P.
La Roche, and reads as follows: .
Portland's great asset Is that 86 per
cent of all buildings are single family
homes. The sone ordinance protects
the small home owner' -and is an en
couragement to building.
It provides over 6000 acres of safe
districts in which industries may be lo
cated without fear of protest and with
every facility to do businesa These are
situated in several parts of the city
naturally arranged for Industry, along
the river on both sides, through Sulli
van's gulch and along the Columbia.
Existing industries -today only cover
135B acres.
Existing hotels, apartments and flats
cover todav 250 bloaks. The sone ordi
nance establishes 1250 blocks in apart
ment house zones, located conveniently
in all parts of the city, as well as per
mitting them als6 in 800 additional
blocks of business sone. (This allows
for apartment houses enough to take
care of 1.500.000 people).
From reports of property owners made
to us in their neighborhood meetings it
Is more than ever evident that the pro
tection to be gained from the early
passage of such a sone ordinance will
be very great
Measured in dollars and cents we esti
mate roughly that it will prevent de
preciation of rents, property values and
taxable returns to the city amounting to
many hundreds of thousands of dollars
in the next five years.
Measured tn human health, comfort,
convenience and safety gained, there Is
little favorable comparison possible for
the present haphasard, uncertain and
mixed up conditions now existing in
certain parts of Portland, and possible
ail over the city unless a zone ordinance
is adopted.
An easy method of amendment of the
sone boundaries is provided, whenever
changed conditions justify it. after con
sultation with the property owners
within 200: feet'. Any property owner
can by request set such an amendment
in motion.
The members of. the city planning
commission pledge themselves to sup
port all reasonable amendments as they
come up snd to see that they are
promptly and fairly acted upon.
