THE MOST FEASIBLE PROJECT ON THE RIVFR
4 HYDRO electric measure has been introduced in the leg-
l-slature by benator Joseph of Multnomah county. The
i bill provides for a commission to handle a survev of pIpc
trid plants in Oregon, present and prospective, with a view to
encouraging lurtner development. 10 is pointed out by those
behind the move thaf in the face of a fuel shortage and a pos
sible early exhaustion of the oil supply the northwest is neglect
ing lis great cr.ance m ODiam power by hydro electric develop
ment . ,
Commenting on the Joseph bill the Portland Telegram de
clares it may be of far reaching significance and promises to
be the most important measure before thrs legislative session.
The Oregon Journal yesterday dealt with the subject in an
editorial wherein it said : - . , .
Measured in the tormsuf energy unutilised the West's greatest waste is its
Coal is hither than it has been in industrial history and high freight rates
jender its cost the more burdensome. !'"".'
Fuel oil has been withdrawn from a considerable part of the market, and
its cost has been radically increased." '
Tet In the Columbia basin alone more than 2fl,000,000 horse power of
potential hydro-electric energy is as free frcm the harness of industry as when
the mountains were first lifted up and the snows and rains began to fall.
Use, along large, well organized tfnd well financed lines, is essential, but
how can the use be brought about?
Put the trouble with the development of waterpower is. first, the magni
tude of the capital Investment required; second, the lack of trained workers
with residence adjacent to power projects, and, third, the absence of a nearby
and large consuming population. . . . " ;
The development of Western industry based on "water power must be coin- I
rident with agricultural 'development and town building. Irrigation and trans-
poruuion must seep step witn electrification. Only a broad plaa. well devised
and equally well executed under governmental supervision, encouragement
snd aid will be equal to the task. The Job calls for empire builders.
The task is truly one of empire building, but a. start can be
made and should be made. Development need not always wait
on new population and industry. It should lead andpopulation
and industry will follow. In refepect to the Umatilla rapids site
the demand for power already exists.
There is engineering data showing that 150,000 acres of land
on the Oregon side of the Columbia may be watered through
the use of electricity generated for pumping water out of our
ng river. An even larger acreage on the Washington side is in
need of irrigation. ' -
Of the land on the Oregon side 50,000 acres may be reclaim
ed by the use of pumps directly connected with the turbines at
the damsite. Sixty thousand acres in Washington may be (irri
gated by the same method and other tracts may be watered by
transmitting the power a reasonable distance. Engineers say
that the situation at the Umatilla ripids is ideal for development.
The bed of the river is solid rock and the cost 6f construction will
be low compared rith other sites.
The fact that Umatilla rapids power is needed at once for
irrigation purposes makes this site the most feasible of any on
the river for early action. The benefits from this development
would be four fold, irrigation, railroad electrification, river im
provement and power for domestic and industrial purposes.
The Columbia provides its maximum power during the summer
when the irrigation season is on, therefore the use of power for
pumping purposes would not conflict with other uses. .
The conditions are also such as to make it feasible to ask for
federal aid. The government engages in reclamation work and
in river improvement. Hence there is sound reason for askintr
the government to take hold, either developing the enterprise
outright or assisting to such an extent that private capital can ,
enter the field. -
If Senator Josephls bill is'so framed as to include inquiry
into the Umatilla rapids site the Umatilla delegation coula ren
der signal service by getting behind the measure.
The harnessing of the Columbia at Umatilla rapids is about
the biggest event that can ever happen in this part of the state.
AFTER THE HORSE IS STOLEN
NATURALLY enough a legislative measure is being pro
posed with a view to preventing repetition of practices
engaged in by the bond house of Morris Bros.. Inc. The
biS requires that in cases where receipts or interim certificates
are given for money paid for bonds or other securities the. com
pany giving the receipt shall keep on hand in the nature of a
trust fund the full amount of such outstanding memorandum in
securities acceptable to the state corporation commissioner.
As far as Morris Bros, is concerned this is an attempt to lock
the stable door after the horse is gone. Nevertheless the step
proposed appears to be a proper one. But no law or code of
laws can make business safe unless those responsible for the en
forcement of law do their duty. There are people who believe
that had present laws been strictly applied the tactics followed
by this bonding house could have been curbed with safety for
the investor. They are probably right in that contention. At
any rate it is just as important that safety measures be enforced
as that they be enacted. In fact a corporation requirement that
is not applied in good faith is worse than useless for it may de
ceive the investor into feeling secure when there is danger. The
element of character is the very basis of all credit and the per
gonal integrity and ability of the corporation commissioner or
other official who may be charged with the duty of applying
our blue sky law is of vast significance when it comes to a true
appraisal of the law's value. '
