serious that it excites the gravest appre

Arid Lands Legislation.
Washington, March 3. It is claimed
that the biU introduced in the house
yesierday", and which will be favorably
reported from the committee on arid
lands, tomorrow, stands a very good
chance -of. passing -the congress. It is
claimed that lying west of the twenty
seventh meridian;-where the line be
tween arable and ' arid lands is drawn,
there are 550,000,000 acres of land,
which under this bill will be turned
over, to the states and territories in
which they are situated. The mineral
lands' are reserved,- and the states' are
prohibited from disposing of them in
tracta "greater than' 100 acreB. The ad--
vantage claimed for this plan is that it
wm take the land department practic
ally out of the hands of the government
except for the settlement of land now
taken - and awaiting r patent. It " is
thought it will lead to a greater saving,
as the land department is little -more
than self-sustaining J now.. The passage
of the bill is an attempt to prevent for
all time any expenditures for the
reclamation of the arid lands of the
west. - . .. .. - . . ...

Fennoyer Stirring the Sleepy' Heads
About the National Capitol -Other
Washington-, March . 3. If the gov
ernor of Oregon and a great many more
people of that state who follow his' ex
ample, would deeist from writing letters
to members of the house committee on
rivers and harbors, and the senate com-'
mittee on commerce, the delegation heie
might be able to do much better work in
securing appropriations for the improve
ment of the waterways in that state.'
When the Columbia river improvements
were under consideration today the
chairman of rivers and harbors sprung a
letter from Pennoyer, which was used
ior the purpose of furthering Mr. Her
mann's efforts to secure appropriations
for Oregon. While it did not say di
rectly, yet it insinuated, that the people
would be satisfied to have the work stop
on ' all improvements at the Cascade
locks, and the government give its entire
attention to ' the portage around the
dalles. The letter recited that there'
was around the cascades a portage road
operated by the state at a cost of only
foOOO'a year, Mr. Hermann made '
very vigorous reply to the letter and'
stated that the only thing wanted;' was4
the continuation -of work on the Cas
cade locks, and that he believed - it
should be rushed to as early a comple
tion as possible. He explained that if,
the "government should now cease
w.CCrk-: upon - the improvements
which' - had already cost ove
$1 ,500,000, and allow the masonry andi
other work to crumble under the fierce
freshets of the Columbia river, it would
be nothing "less than' an - outrage. He.
was willing that a portage road be built
around the dalles as a temporary affair,,
but in the end he held that some perma
nent improvements should be made,
which would enable vessels to pass up
and down the river through the dalles,
Therefore it would be necesssary to have
the locks at the caecades completed.
He pointed out the fact that the peo
ple of Portland were expending $500,000
to secure a deep water channel on the
lower Columbia and insisted that there
must be commerce ' behind such local
expenditures as that. So far as the del
egation here can see it is apparent that
Pennoyer and his friends are attempting
to influence the democratic house not to
do anything for Oregon improvements,'
also that political capital may be made
in the coming election in that state.
Prohibition in Iowa.
Des Moines, March 3. The prohibit
tion question came up in the senate
again today in the consideration of the
Gatch bill,' providing- for county local
option.- In presenting the bill, Senator
Gatch goes against the wishes of all his
republican colleagues, except Senator
Brower. It is thought the bill will pass
with the help of the democrats. -
