110,000 acres of land may be watered through use of
pumps directly connected with turbines.
558,000 acres of arid land susceptible of reclamation by '

Total estimated cost of power project, including darri

Project would develop 120,00p continuous horse power
with 200,000 aditional horse power during irrigation sea-
Cost of construction per horse power would be $75 for
continuous power and $57.50 for irrigation power.

To see that the waters of the mighty Columbia are utilized
for development of hydro electric power at Umatilla rapids
v ith the aim of fostering irrigation, railroad electrification and
the production of vast electric power for local industrial and
domestic purposes is the purpose of a move launched under
auspicious circumstances at Umatilla yesterday afternoon. The
amount of enthusiasm and intelligent interest manifested sur-

a new navail tion was formed and plans for an ambitious program ere ten

The next big step will be a meeting of the Association in
Fendleton at 10 a. m. on February 5. For that meeting invita
tions are being extended to leading railroad officials of the
northwest, the governors and state engineers of Oregon and
Washington, legislators and prominent business and industrial
leaders. Wires were sent last evening requesting the attend

of the Union Pacific ; J. P. O'Brien, general manager of the Q.

Enthusiasm Manifest
'Lay your plans slowly, but
when you have found out what
to do, work fast,' was the ad
monition of O. Stangeby, pres
ident of the Umatilla Commer
cial Club, in calling the meet
ing to order yesterday after
noon. The old school house at
Umatilla was filled with repre
sentative men from Umatillf
and Morrow counties and it
was evident from the start that
there was extreme interest in
the question at hand. P. C.
Brownell of Umatilla and Port
land, was chosen as temporary
chairman, and E. B. Aldrich,
editor of the East Oregonian, as
temporary secretary.
The engineering features of
the project were discussed by
H. A. Rands of Portland, an en
gineer connected with the
Portland Railway, Light &
Power Co., and who at one
time made a traffic PlirveV of

Mr. Rands brought out the fact that

the t'matilla rapids m double the flow
