A SUBJECT TO AROUSE ENTHUSIASM
IN a very able editorial last week the Portland Telegram gave
much information concerning the Umatilla rapids project
and the great benefits that would follow in the wake of its
- construction. The Portland press is generally favorable to the
project and such interest is justified because the project is one
of genuine state importance. In fact it may be truthfully claimed
,for the project that its development would !serve a need that is
nation-wide in character. s
Here is why. The project, though its first purpose is irri
gation, involves power development of such magnitude as to
win attention from those who see danger in the growing scarcity
of coal and oil and wish the situation relieved. . The railroads
are great users of coal and oil. It is said that coal constitutes
approximately 35 per cent of all freight carried by the rail
roads. According to the same engineering authority almost a
million cars are devoted to coal carrying and they carry 42 mil
lion tons at one loading. Of all the coal mined in the Unifed
States one fourth is used by the railroads themselves. The rail
roads devote one third their total energy to hauling coal for
their own use and annually pay out stupenduous sums for this
class of fuel. The shipper of course pays the bill and the bur
den ultimately falls upon the consuming public. The high cost
of fuel is one reason why freight rates are high.
In the case of the northwest railroads this use of coal repre
sents an economic waste because our power streams may be
made to provide sufficient electric energyito move all traffic.
The Umatilla rr.pids project alone, if constructed, will provide
k 120,000 continuui.s horsepower in addition to' a still larger
amount of secondary powrer for use in pumping for irrigation
purposes. With the project developed there would be no occa
sion for the O. W. R. & N. system to use coal. There would be
sufficient electric power to move every O.-W. train and still
have abundant power left for other industrial and domestic
uses. The roads would not only have cheaper power but better
power and more economical operation. An electric locomotive
does the wcrk of two or three steam locomotives. Where elec
tricity is used in railroad operation track capacity is increased
,50 per cent, thus working to reduce the need of double track
Through the fact the pdwer at Umatilla rapids goes unused
we lose annually from five to 25 millions of dollars. This is a
staggering sum and when this waste is considered the cost of
building the project seemsv small. This region is being contin
ually penalized because this natural resource is not put to work.
.The whole Oregon-Washington country is penalized. So is the
nation at large because every car of coal brought here for rail
'road operation or for use in an industry that could be electrified,
represents coal taken away from some other region that needs
it worse. The price of coal throughout the nation is needlessly
elevated by this process and the consuming public of the natin
pays the bill. We are using up an exhaustible' resource when
there is an inexhaustible resource available that can be made
to serve the purpose better. ' ' ' ' " ''.'
The Portland Telegram and other" newspapers supporting
the Umatilla rapids project are to be complimented on their
vision. A northwest newspaper that cannot enthuse over the
subject of hydro-electric development in the Columbia basin is
not awake to one of the big things of this region and fails to
understand one of the most pressing needs of the whole nation.
THE ALLIES TURN TO THE LEAGUE
THE inhabitants of Silesia had reached a deadlock on the
question of the partition of the territory. If they were to
settle it amon? themselves there was nothing to do but
fight it out. Premiers Lloyd George and Briand, attempting to
"arbitrate the differences, found themselves hampered by the
national interests they represented and came likewise to a dead
lock one so serious that it threatened to wreck the Entente
There was but one sensible course to take and the allies have
taken it in turning the problem over to the League of Nations,
The league is the only disinterested spectator at the internation
al tug-of-war. It was established to pass on just such matters
s the kilesian tangle after everybody else in sight had been
found too deeply involved in the case to remain unprejudiced
All this has been obvious since the league first appeared oa
the scene, but it will come as a profound shock, nevertheless, to
the white house and the senate republicans who have been de
claring in no uncertain terms that the League of Nations is dead,
dead even as an issue, dead past all hope of resurrection. In
the first crisis that shakes the basic understanding between Eng
land and France those powers turn to it inevitably as the only
impartial arbiter, the only insurance against the anarchy of self
By a stroke of irony unparalleled in the world's greatest
comedit's the decision was made under the very nose of Col
Cforge Harvey, Mr. Harding's ambassador to the Court of St
Jauiis, und bitterest of all leagua opponents. The wihte house
can find in the allies' decision a very defjnit answer to its prop
osition to destroy the league in orcer to establish an Association
of Nations to save the face of the senators who defeated the

FOREST FIRE LOSS
Germany Lost , 21,547,620
' Acre3 in War J Trees Burn In
.U. S. on Area 21j Larger,
WASHINGTON. Aug. IS Telegram
Washington Bureau.) Hecause of tin
war, Germany lot about SI, 54", 520
acres of land exclusive of plebiscite
This was undoubtedly a serious na
tional misfortune to Germany. Tha
rnited States during the period 1916-
mn, inclusive burned up 56,488. 3l?
acres ef our forested area over two
and a half times as much as Ger
many's entire loss an area greater
than New York and Pennsylvania
combined, or Minnesota, Kansas, Ida
ho or I'tah. .
While It is impossible to trace the
origin of all forest fires, the record?
of the forest service of the United
States department of agriculture show
that a large number originated
through the carelessness of happy-go-
lucky tourists. The forest service is
anxious to encourage the use of the
national forests as recreation grounds.
It co-operates with plans for .hulki
ng fine roads through the Jorests and
establishes numerous free camping
grounds where shelter, water and fire
wood may be obtained.
" Many VWt Camps.
Many of these camps are located on
mam automobile highways and are
easily- reached. Some states provide
tourist guide maps to the forests and
camp sites. About 5,00u,000 people, it
is estimated, use the forests each year
during the vacation season.
At Eagle Crek camp grounds on
the Columbia River highway in the
Oregon national forest 132,000 tour
ists registered last year!
Some of the campers; however, do
not seem to appreciate the pleasures
and privileges afforded to the tcnirllig
public. They disfigure tho scenery
with rubbish and filth, they disregard
game laws and pollute streams, but
heir worst and most frequently re
curring offense, according to forest
fficers, is the starting of destructive
forest fires by carelessness either with
camp fires or with smoking..
A lighted cigarette thrown Into dry
leaves or needles may start a fire that
will spread for miles. A camp fire
not fully extinguished 'may be the
means of destroying valuable timber
which has taken hundreds of years
to reach maturity. The reports of
forest rangers are filled with drama
tic accounts of the work Involved in
controlling such fires and also In de
tecting and bringing the culprit be
fore a judge after following the very
slight clews obtained In a deserted
camp site. Sometimes an old bottle
or a pocket handkerchief will reveal
the original possessor ' who did not
put out his fire. Sometimes a par
ticular make of automobile tire can
be traced for miles and the careless
camper brought to justice. '
ftamage Can't He nostorcd
No fines, however, on the part of
the local magistrate will restore the
burned area. While forest rangers
are vigilant and alert to catch care
lessness nnd prevent incipient fires,
the real need; the foresters say,' is for
the development of more' concience
on the part of the' public which uses
the national forests, it is greatly de
sired by the forest service that all the
147 national forests; from the Atlan
tic to the Pacific and' from Gulf to
border, be used and enjoyed to the
rfiitlest extent by a many people as
possible. This involves universal ad
option of the slogan, "Be sure your
fire is out."
A WOMAN COULD
Mrs. Meyor Finally Found
Relief and Health in Lydia E,
Oranw, Cal.' "I always feel very
grateful to you, as some twenty years
yyrvaagp mree doctors
S iiisaiti i naa to nave a
i serious operation. I
il bad a tumor, and ul-
iMcers which would

A badly that I could
nardiy sit down at

asif I suffered every
tnine that a woman

some one advised me
o take Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound, and I took it until I was
cured and saved from the operation. 1
have told women of your wonderful
medicine times without number, and I
am willing that you should :use these

-Mrs. J. H. Meyer, 412 South Orange
St, Orange, California.
U is quite true that such troubles as
Mrs. Meyer had may reach a stage where
an operation is the only resource. On
the other hand, a great many women
have been restored to health by Lydia El
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
