Portland Railway, LigKb &
Power Company Estab
, lishes Salem Office
With! f.500 patron In and
mround "Salem,, the Portland Rail
I way.' Light & Power' company is
stabl whinp a local office for the
ale ,of the company securities in
the Salem district, j
; The company ; is putting some
where between $12,000,000 and
.' 5 K. .000,000 into it great Oak
r.rOjTe power plant that Is to de-
. volop 1 0 5,000 horsepower from
-the waters of " the : Clackamas
. river., It Is one of the 'most high
ly scientific projects in the west,
for It utilizes practically every
form .of storage, of diversion a.nd
of transmission; known to science.
! Water From ; Cascades ' '"-..!
AU the water comes from the
slopes of,. Mount Hood, Mount
Jefferson and the other high
: mountains of the Cascade range.
Clackamas lake lies between the
v two giant peaks, with the Tim
othy Meadows Just, below. These
broad, ! spreading meadows ; form
an ideal storage reservoir.?-Restrained
by a 7-foot. dam. the
water can be fed down the Oak
Grove fork asLjaeeded for power
purposes during the short-water
. The upper fork of the Clack-
a mas, heading high up on Mount
' Jefferson, and carrying a tremen
1 dous regular and reshet flow ot
water, spreads oat into the Big
Bottoms meadows, where ay 130
, foot dam makes it a magnificent
Ptorage reservoir. This dam is
also a diversion dam, to raise the
waters to a -height sufficient so
' that a three-mile tunnel will
carry it across tothe Oak Grove
. stream-bed, to raise the waters
tot easy diversion through: a nine
foot steel conduit, eight anorone
. half miles long, down ' to the
Clackamas canyon where the power-house
is to be built-
Head I Tremendous
The water vis turned from this
great conduit Into a huge "surge
tank," that will eliminate all the,
hammerings of the , long -tnnneJ
and ; pipe-line carriage.' ? Then' tne
water goes in three other n(nf-;
foot conduits down the bill to the
power plant proper. This ; drpP
.of 867 feet one of the greatest
water-heads ever contemplated in
hydro-electrical historywill pro
. vide water to run three " enor
mous Pelton water wheels, each
to develop 35,000 horsepower.
These are the biggest wheels ever
built. The nearest approach Is
; the 25,000 horsepowers wheels t
the Kern River plant In Calif or
n!a that , operate under! a- head ot
v S 1 0 feet. - , - -: '.-..;! - ' '
The great difficulty with many
otherwise jsplendid power ! possi
bflfcips is Iheir .variable .wfftojr
flow. , The Snake riret in Idaho,
with it Shoshone falls, 212 feet
sigh, and almost a dozen" other
tremendous ' cataracts, varies in
its flow from 500' cubic feet per
second to almost 1 200000 cubic
feeet per second. 'The smaller
fjow has been registered at; tiroes
! when, fhe grew irrigation pfo
f Jects of the upper-river " are tak
" Ing the diminished summer flow
! for Irrigation use. put this great
Clackamas plant,- through the
storage ' plan as projected, wiir
give its 105.000 horsepower every
day of the year, under every
weather condition, with of course
a great surplus during the plenti
fully watered years. ' I. ' .
Railroad Boijt . 1 t
, The company is building a ,30-
mile railroad, and a wagon road
55 miles long, to reach the upper
workings of 'this, enormous power
project. Work has been carried
on all this year,, so that the grad
ing is already well along. The
first unit of the main power plant
; is to be In bperation duringl924.
It is announced that about .the
best buyers of the company secur
ities have been Its own employes,
most of whMn 'have bought up to
their limltf Following ' them.
have come the-' general, consuming
public. Out of the 66000 patrons
of " the company in the whole territory-served,
there i are several
thousand stoci owners, about 100
of them being company patrons
vln Salem. The efforts is being
made to Interest Oregon people
in buying industrial stocks in
I their own country, and helping to
build up their own country with
their Invested moneys ' ,

An animated discusston was
brought over the appraisment ot
farm lands. ?
' I. , Chapin. forj years county
agent, thea field and crop expert
for the King's Products company,
and now appraiser for the federal
land bank; was the principal
speaker, lie outlined the plan
by which he determines land val
ues v for bank loans, and these
furnished the basis for the dis
cussion. The federal land banks make o
Joan limit of $150 an acre for
any excessive crop improvementst
such a orchards, ihat may be
added ito' the land as a straight
agricultural investment. There
are so many things that can hap
pen to a specialized crop, such as
fruit the insects, the frost, a
winter freeze that the conserv
ative banker cannot accept any
thing like , the actual' one-year
bumper crop as a fair basis for
loan; values. So the utmost that
a bank operating on the federal
basis, would be the farm land
value of possibly $100 an acre,
more or less, as shown by the
revenue returns, plus" the maxi
mum, allowance of $150 an acre
for highly specialized .crops. ,
Mr. Chapin examines the land,
its sail, its drainage, all the prin
cipal elements of croD production
fend then figures what the farm
wouia likely produce on a care-'fully-planned
crop rotation that
will maintain or increase its nor
mal ; fertility,. Taking a 100-acre
valley ,farm. all tillable, he sug
gested about 15 per cent of wheat,
which ought to average 20 bushels
a,n acre, or, $300; 15 acres of oats
and vetch hay ought to be wortt
11600, at the prices that have been
prevailing; 30 acres of clover, for
hay and for seedought to pay $1,
125; and l5 acres of cultivated
crop, lik? potatoes, should be
worth $1125 a year, at an aver
age price of $1.35 per 100 pounds.
The revenues from' garden' "and
pasture would bring up the re
ceipts of a really good, ell-tilled
farm) to $3-100. Deducting the
taxes, repairs and -other necessary
owner expenses, he would have a
nrt return to the owner, from his
one-third of the crop, of about
$830. This, at an estimated G ner
cent for caaitnl return, wnuld he,
paid on a maximum valuation of,j
about xi 40 an acre.
This, however, he stated was an
eau-eptional farm, and tha estimate
called for its careful farming.
