presented to congress during the
forthcoming session by Secretary of
the Navy Meyer when the question
of the building program is taken up
Naval experts have practically
agreed tnat the new type of ship, of
which congress will be asked to auth
orize the building of two, will be
larger and heavier than the 27,000 ton
ships now under construction. The
tonnage limit will be increased to at
least 28,000 and probably 29,000 when
the plans are matured.
, The building program will probably
Include torpedo destroyers, and one
additional ship, either an ammunition,
repair, supply or hospital ship. An
Important change in the '. building
plans as outlined In the tentative pro
gram will be enlargement of the de
stroyers to 1000 tons. The largest
now afloat In- the United States navy
are 750 tons. This means that the
larger grayhounds of the navy, the
scout destroyers, will become an ob
solete class. '. -'.'

May Aid Port of Siuslaw.
Portland The war department has
found a way to supply money for Siu
slaw port improvements under an
amendment adopted at the last ses
sion, which for a time, it seemed,
would be probably interpreted as null.
District Engineer J. J. Morrow first
took up the matter with the depart
ment. Then Senator Bourne con
ferred, and has received a memoran
dum from General Blxby, chief en-'
glneer, saying the department would
be able to adjust matters.
The terms of such (adjustment are
In accordance with that provision of
the amendment requiring that the
port of Siuslaw commission execute
a contract guaranteeing from local
sources a sum equal to that which the
government supplies, $215,000, the
money to be placed to the credit ot
the secretary of war.

BALLOT COUNT EXPENSIVE
Woman Loses Land Right.
Klamath Falls A case which has
been Jn the courts tor the past five
years where the United States has
teen attempting to have canceled a
patent for 160 acres Issued to Mrs.
Jessie M. Wright, has just been de
cided in favor of the United States.
The land was taken up by Mrs.
Wright before her marriage, and after
taking a husband she did not con

after she ceased to be the head of a
32 Initiative and Referendum Meas
ures Will Add $20,000 Expense.
Salem According to-u, fairly con
servative estimate, it will probably
cost the State cf Oregon twice as
much to pay for counting the votes on
the 32 initiative and referendum
measures to come up before the peo
ple at the general election, November
8, as the combined salaries of the
senators and representatives In th
legislature for a session of 40 days.
And this amount includes only the '
extra election expense that will be
caused because ot the measures, and
has no reference to the cost ot count
ing votes on the various candidates.
It to safe to assert that In a pre
cinct where there are 150 voters or
over It will require, fully a day to
count these measures alone. At any
rate, with a long ballot of state, coun
ty and district officers, more than a
day will be consumed In counting
both. As the law provides that the
judges and e'erks shall be paid an
extra day, even if their time runs over
a fraction after the first day, It can
be seen that the counting of these
measures will result In an extra day's
pay for all of the judges and clerks In
the various precincts, and in nuany
of the precincts where ttiere are
from 250 to 700 voters the counting
will make up two extra days.
