Takes the Island Under a Four Years
Lease, With Privilege of Buying It
for an Amount ;Not Far From $20,'
E. W. McComas has leased the
Switzler Island, In the Columbia river
mldwav between wallula and Uma
tllla, and will turn It into a vast al
fal fa field.
The deal has been hanging fire for
several months, having been reported
as consummated several times. The
last name was affixed to the lease to
day. which gives Mr. McComas full
control of tho Island for a term of
four years, with the privilege of buy
Ing It at a fixed price at the end of
that time, if ho wants It. Tho price
is not given, but is known to be
larire one. In tho neighborhood of
Switzler's Island Is owned by John
B. Switzler, -who has lived for the
past 20 years on It and has a large
portion of it improved. There Is
fine house, barn and out buildings
and 30 acres of orchard.. All told,
the Island contains 750 acres that can
bo cultivated, and, unlike most of the
sand bars of tho Columbia river, It
has a good coat of soil on top of the
eand, and will grow a fair crop of
most anything, adapted to this west
ern country, without water. It devel
ops jnto a regular Garden of Eden
when -water Is applied.
The idea of Mr. McComas in leas
ing the place Is to turn it Into one
large field of alfalfa, which grows to
perfection with little water. Ho is
already having a large pumping plant
established at tho edge of tho island,
which will bo In working order by
the time the dry season sets in, for
the purpose of irrigating the lund.
Two hundred acres will be sown to
alfalfa seed this spring, as an experi
ment, and, if tills proves a success,
tho whole Island will be devoted to
this product. Twenty-five acres will
also bo planted to potatoes this
Mr. "McComas is confident that he
will be able to make alfalfa growing
a success and thinks that after it is
once started and gets root it will
grow without water. About nine or
ten tons of alfalfa an acre will grow
on this land, after the first two sea
sons, and a ready market for It can
bo found right at homo at a good

GATHER AT WHEELING, W. VA.,
FOR A CONFERENCE.
There Will be Opposition to the Ad
mission of Delegates from Some
of the New Lodges.
Wheeling, W. Va., April 12.-DUP-Ing
the coming week Wheeling will
entertain the annual convention of
the Amalgamated Association 01 iron,
Steel and Tin .Workers, one of tho
largest and moat Influential labor or
ganizations In America. There arc
several things which promise to give
unusual importance to the proceed
ings if the coming convention. Tho
convention will open Tuesday, and,
according to reports, there will be
some opposition to the admission of
delegates from somo new lodges,
owing to tho fact that the scale rates
have not been paid in some mills
where they were formed. If the
lodges organized In the east aro given
representation it is said they will bo
admitted in violation of the constitii'
tion, and this will result in tho con
tinuation of tho present administra
tion. The rival organization to the Amal
gamated Association, recently form
ed at Chicago, Milwaukee and other
points, under the name of the Steel
workers' Association of America, will
probably receive some attention.
Notwithstanding the declarations of
friendship made by the new organiza
tion, it is the general belief that Its
success cannot but bo inimical to the
interests of the Amalgamated Association.
From the present outlook it is re
garded as unlikely that any demand
will be made for a change in the base
and card rates in the bar iron scale.
Unless the manufacturers should ask
for lower rates, which thus far has
not been in any manner Intimated,
this means that little difficulty will
be experienced in reaching an agree
ment. While there aro some new
lodges that have suggested a demand
for an increase, it is believed that
they form a small minority. The
present base is $5 to a one cent card,
remaining at that base until it reach
es 1.3, when it advances 25 cents the
ton f-r boiling. The present wage
rate is $5.75 a ton.
