guaranteed .o,ooo moro for its "main
tenance. Congressman Hawley has
wired to tlio war
mem, logetner with a protest ngn
tlio removal of the dredge. It is held
that the dredgo was built for use on
the Oregon coast at the instigation of
Coos Buy citizens mid should remnin
here. The channel in the upper bav
has been dredged part wav down, but
nil the shoals have not yet been re
moved and if the dredgo is taken away,

Not After Land Office.
Klamath Falls. Word has been sent
to the commercial organization at Lake
view that tho Klnmnth Chamber of
Commerce is not indorsing the move
ment to move the land office to this
city. This action was taken by tho lo
cal organization at a meeting of the
board of .directors, in order to maintain
t ho friendly trade relations existing
between the two towns.
The object in asking for the removal
of tho land office from Lnkeviow was
not to build up Klamath Falls end
Klamath county at the expense of Lake-
view, but to make it more convenient
for land owners under tho Klnmnth re
clamation project to make payment of
their water assessments. Under the pres
ent conditions the fees must be for
warded to Lnkeview, causing the water
users unnecessary expense and trouble.
