At the same time It was recall

tentative plans and estimates of

will be made as to whether Its

"The department Insofar as pos

of carrying out river and harbor

The new plan of clearing the
river channel of sand bars which
wash back Into the river with the
first freshet after they are dredg
ed out under the present arrange

the Salem Navgatlon company,
and with the support of other lo
cal organizations, was submitted
to Salem's two members of con
gress with the result that they
conferred with the army engineers
and obtained a promise of the In
vestigation now under way. .
Previously the effort had been
for permanent Improvement In the
way of wing dams, but it was felt
that the use of a mobile dredge,

find that with little exception,
construction of wing dams has
proven -rather a permanent rem
edy for shallowness of bars.
"The difficulty with the WI1
lamette river is that ws cannot
get 'navigation .without Improving
we aepta of water, ana it seems
difficult to convince the engineers
of the necessity, of allotting suffi
cient money to secure the 'depth
of water necessary to Increase nav
igation. Navigation : has been so
irregular on the Willamette river
in past years that the engineers
are much in doubt., .
"However, the mobile dredge
opening the channel and keeping
the traffic open during the entire
year would do a very great deal to
build up naigatlon . on the river,
because a transportation system,
to be valuable, must afford some
regularity of service.-
"I think It quite likely that If
we can secure he mobile dredge
and the benefits It Is expected to
bring about, we can secure there
after the permanent improvement
by way of wing dams, etc."

larkey relating to the election of
Justices of the supreme court has
been made a special order of bus
iness In the -house at 11 a. m.
Monday. , It was said that cdnsid
erable opposition has developed to
this bill and a spirited debate is
anticipated. The bill provides
that the candidates for Justices of
the supreme, court shall be, placed
on the ballot without any. party
. Two house Joint memorials also
are up- for. consideration. One of
these was Introduced by Repre
sentative Hazlett and-others and
urges a congressional Investiga
tion of telephone - rates. The
other memorial was introduced
by Representative Tates and oth
ers and urges congressional as
jistance In Investigating an undi
agnosed malady In the livestock
districts of Eeastern, Oregon.
3f Many Measures
At a meeting of the ways and
means committee recently it was
reported that this malady had re-'
suited In the deaths of large num
bers of cattle In Eastern Oregon.
and that all efforts to diagnose
the disease had proved futile.
The malady was said to exist 'In
three or four of the larger East
ern Oregon . counties. The ways
and means committee was urged
to make a separate Investigation
of the malady and if possible ap
propriate money with, ' which to
continue the fight - against the
disease. A memorial urging con
gress to pass legislation looking
to a federal Investigation of tele
phone rates was adopted recently
In the senate.
There also are 27 bills of more
or less Importance for third read
ing in the house at Monday's ses
Legislators predicted that next
week would see a large numbef
of bills disposed of In both
houses. It was pointed out that
most of the important, bills are in
the hands of committees, and
that these must have right of way
over less important legislation.
Although the constitutional 40
days' session ends a week from
next Friday night, legislators ex
pressed the opinion that the ses
would continue for at least a
week and possibly 10 days.
At public hearing, has been set
for next Wednesday night when
all bills and resolutions giving
instructions to the state highway
commission will be considered.
Most of these bills and resolu
tions have to do with the sale of
bonds for highway construction.
