Hitchcock Refuses to Approve Pro
jects In the Northwest.
Washington, Nov. 1.1. Following
clone upon Secretary Taft's refusal to
recommend an appropriation for con
tinning the improvement of the mouth
of the Columbia river comes Secretary
Hitchcock's refusal to approve the
Umatilla irrigation project in Oregon,
and the Okanogan and Tietan projects,
in Washington, all of which have been
pronounced feasible by the reclamation
engineers, and all of winch were re
eently submitted to Mr. Hitchcock for
his approval. 1-ack of funds is given
as his reason for turning down all three
Mr. Hitchcock finds that he has al
lotted all the monev in the reclamation
fund and alout $11,000,000 in excess
He concludes that it is time to check
these allotments, and is determined to
accumulate a surplus before more work
is undertaken. He therefore intends
to hold back on new projects until July
1, at which time, it is estimated, there
will he a surplus on hand of about $1
000,000. Mr. Hitchcock finds nothing
wrong with the engineering features of
these projects, but he is entering upon
a new policy of distributing money out
of the reclamation fund, and his reform
is put in force just at the time when
Oregon and Washington were in line
Anottier thing that develops in con
nection with the refusal to approve the
matilla, Okanogan and Tietan projects
is the determination of the secretary to
hereafter confine allotments of reclama
tion funds to 51 per cent of the amouut
contributed by the various states and
territories. It is unfortunate for Ore
gon and vtasr.ington that this rule is
adopted at this late day, but, if it be
lived up to strictly, tbe secretary
should at once expend $2,500,000 in
Oregon and more than $1,500,000 in
Washington. As a matter of fact, not
dollar of the reclamation fund has
been expended on any irrigation work
in Washington, and the only benefit
Oregon seems likely to receive for some
time is her share of the $1 ,000,000
which has been set aside for Klamath.

LET ROOT MANAGE BIG CANAL.
Plan to Relieve Taft
of Panama Mat-
ters Again Discussfed
Washington, Nov. 13. i An echo of
the suggestion that the Isthmian canal
should be placed under the State de
partment has been heard in a rumor of
tbe possibility that the Insular bureau,
which grew up under the direction of
Secretary Root . when he was at the
head of the War department, may be
transferred to the State department.
The discussion of the matter has not
taken any concrete form, but it is one
of the suggestions made to relieve the
secretary of war of heavy responsibili
ties which now rest upon him in ad
ministering not only the affairs of the
army, but tbe Philippines, the Panama
canal and other island interests.
It would take legislation to bring
about the change, as the Insular bureau
was legislated into the War depart
ment when the Philippine government
act was passed.
Divert Traffic From Canal.
Washington, Nov. 13. The Tehuan-
tepee railroad, which the Mexican gov
ernment has been building across the
country from the Atlantic to the Pa
cific, will, according to information re
ceived at the Mexican embassy, be fin
ished and ready for use within six
months. The belief in Mexico is that
the completion of this imortant road
means that a great deal ol freight
which formerly went by way of the
Panama route will now be transported
through the Mexican republic until the
canal is completed.

SHEEP SENT EAST.
Trade From Southeastern Oregon
Brings in $2,000,000.
Baker City The active state of the
sheep market this fall has been a mat
ter of congratulation to that portion of
Southeastern Oregon interested in this
branch of the stock raising industry,
although the estimates sometimes
made, of $3,000,000 having been
brought into this country this season,
are too much by half, according to the
"sheep kings of Eastern Oregon.
Miles Lee, recognized as Baker coun
ty s leading sheepman, and . G.
Ayre, another sheep king, from Durkee,
Baker county, both state that alout
$2,000,000 worth of sheep have been
shipped from Eastern Oregon this vear.
Prices have ruled from $1.75 Jus high as
$3.50 in extreme cases. Considerable
shipping has been done this year from
Huntington and Ontario, these points
being most convenient to Malheur and
Harney counties. Freight rates to the
Easte.n markets are the same from
these points as from those farther north
along theO. R. & N.
Millions in Stumps.
Baker City Two Russians named
bolomon are here Irom the fcast inves
tigating yellow pine stumps, from
which they claim to have a process for
manufacturing turpentine and tar.
They, say there is millions in it, and
are now in the bills surveying stamp
age. They must have decayed stumps,
the theory being that old yellow pine
stumps absorb chemicals from the
ground. Four and one-half cords of
stumps make $150 worth of turpentine
and tar, and the process can b re
peated 16 times a month. It is be
lieved local capital will interest itself
in the enterprise.
Looking for Seining Grounds.
ABoria A representative of Puget
sound parties has been here during tbe
past few days conferring with the own
ers of some of the principal independ
ent seining grounds in the Columbia
river, in an effort to secure options and
property. As near as can be learned,
a company is being organized on Puget
sound to erect a salmon cannery on the
Columbia, but before any definite steps
are taken the company desires to ob
tain possession of a number of seining
grounds as the principal source from
which to secure its fish.

Wide Ledge Near Railroad.

caused in the Mohawk valley by the

branch of the Southern Pacific railroad.
The Hyland Bros., who operate a saw
mill near Marcola, found a ledge 32
feet wide. Samples of the oie assayed
went from $1.50 up to $7.50 per ton.
