CASH FOR JETTY.
Provision Is Made In Amendment to
Sundry Civil Bill.
Washington, March 9. The senate
committee on commerce today voted
unanimously to report favorably Sen
ator Fulton 's amendment to the sun
dry civil bill, appropriating $400,000
for continuing the work on the Colum
bia river jetty, with a view to its pre-
jservation unt'l congress shall hereafter
mate provision lur na cvuimmiuu,
ad dee of Senator Frye, chairman of
the committee. Mr. Fulton did not at
tempt to amend his amendment, as
recommended by the secretary of war,
so as to authoriie contracts to com
plete the jetty, to iU full projected
length, because it was universally
agreed that any such change would
certainly defeat the entire amendment
and kill the $400,000 appropriation
which now seems within grap.
Rather than run this risk, Mr. Fulton
af ked for a favorbale report merely on
his amendment as originally drawn.
The commerce committee, before act
ing, gave a hearing to Mr. Fulton, who
at some length pointed out the neces
sity for the adoption of his amendment,
showing that, unless the money is pro
vided, more than a mile of uncom
pleted jetty will be entirely lost, be
cause of (he certain destruction of the
tramways. Unless his amendment is
adopted, Mr. Fulton declared the tram-
way would M utterly aestroyea oy
teredos during the coming season, and
once tne tramway is gone, me nan
finished portion of the jetty will be ab
solutely lost, because it will be impos
sible to build new trestles over unfin
ished rock work. This loss, he said
would cost the government fully $500,
000, and would set back work on the
iettv not less than two years. He
showed that good business principles
demand that the incomplete work be
protected, and tbia can only be done
by the immediate expenditure of $400,
000, as explained by the army engin
The committee was thoroughly con
vinced of the advisability of making
this appropriation, and assured Mr
Fulton that it would individually and
collectively aid him in securing the
adopt.on of his amendment.
"While the committee is not favorable
to making appropriations for new river
and harbor work at this session, it re
gards this project as an extreme emer
gency. lo increase tne cnances ci get
ting this appropriation, the committee
authorized a favorable rep rt on an
original bill identical in terms with
Mr. Fulton s amendmnet, and, in case
one plan fails, the other will be pressed
Senator Piles, of Washington, wno is
member of the commerce committee
and extremely friendly to Columbia
river improvement, is an enthusiastic
supporter of Mr. Fnlton's amendment.
He, like other members of the commit
tee, believes the action of the commit'
tee today makes it absolutely certain
that the senate will attach the amend
mnt to the sundry civil bill, but real
izes that a fight will come when the
bill goes back to the house.
SEA-LEVEL CANAL FEASIBLE.
Professor Burr Says It Can Be Dug
in Ten Years.
Washington, March 9. Professor W
, II. Burr, of New York, a member of
the board of consulting engineers, ap
peared before the senate committee on
interoceanic canals to discuss the type
of canal to be constructed across the
Isthmus of Panama. He said that
since tne report wua prepared, nis re
flections convince him more tban ever
that a sea-level canal was more feasible
than a lock canal.
The witness was examined at length
concerning the control of the C hag res
river, and declared that the solutiun
of the problem presented was entirely
feasible. lie declared he could see no
reason why a sea-level canal should not
be constructed in ten years, as no
doubtful engineering feats were con
templated in the majority plan.
The committer adjourned until 10.30
o'clock tomorrow, when it is under
stood Professor Burr will attack the
wisdom of constructing a canal of the
lock type provided for in the minority
Oppose Alaska Fishery Bill.
Washington, March 9. Representa
tives of Alaskan canners and fishermen
appeared before the house committee
on territories today to opp-we the Cuiih
man billl. C. W. Dorr, Captain D. H.
Jarvis, Representative Humphries and
Fred Stimson, of Seattle, addressed the
committee. The Ciishman bill gives
the department of Commerce arid Lihor
practically a free hand in regulating
Alaskan fisheries and the measure was
criticized chiefly on the ground that it
centers too great a power in the depart
ment. No More Naughty Posters.
Detroit, March 9. Sensational, vic
ious and suggestive billboard pictures
were condemned by a resolution adopt
ed here today at the quarterly meeting
of t Vie board of directors of the Associ
ated Bill posters & Distributers of the
United States and Canada. The reso
lution instructs members of the asso
ciation to refuse, after the expiration
of the year's contracts on August 1,
1906, to po't such pitcures and titles
as may be declared objectionable.

I OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST
WOOL SALES DATES SET. j COMMISSIONER
Product Will Be Disposed of
in Open Competition.
Pendleton The wool sales dates for
Faatern Oregon have been decided
upon as follows:
Fcndleton, May 22, 23, Juno 5;
Heppner, May V5, June 8, 22; Con
don, May 29, June 27; Shantko, May
31, June 1, 19, 20, July 10; Wallowa,
June 12, 29; Raker City, June 14, July
On these dates practically all ol the
wool of Eastern Oregon will be sold, as
all of the dealers have decided not to
make any advance sales to the buyers.
This means that all wool of Oregon
must this year tie bought in opeu com
petition at the different sales days.
The Umatilla County Woolgrowere'
association has decided to test the va
liditv of the migratory stock law of
Oregon at the earliest possible opportu
nity. Judge Ellis declared the law
unconstitutional some time ago. The
case will be tried again and the law,
if defective, will be remedied. This is
a law which places a tax on all sheep
brought into the state for grazing pur
poses from the outside.
Affidavits will also be forwarded to
the Interior department showing that
Oregon sheepmen were unjustly treated
in the redivision of the Wenaha re
serve. An effort will be made to enlist
the aid of the Portland and Pendletou
commercial clubs in Umatilla county's

La Grande I a Grande and the

Never Voted tor President.
McMinnville Major George L. Scott,
who recentl) retired from the United
States army after 35 years' continuous
service, returned to the place of his
birth in this county last week, for the
first time since enlistment. Although
nearly 60 years of age; Major Scott has
never cast a vote fcr any president of
the United States. He left Lifayette,
Yamhill county, for West Point, when
21 years old, and before he had voted.
During his long enlistment Major Scott
has been in active service in every state
in the union except Oregon and Maine.
He is retired on full pay.
Oil Famine on Nehalem.
Nehaiem The good people of Neha
lem are going to bed with the chickens
now, for the simple reason that there
is nothing else for them to do. Gaso
line, kerosene and other illuminating
oils are not to be bad, and such make
shifts as can be found are discouraging
to any literary ffort in the long winter
evenings, supposed generally to ue ae-
voted to mental improvement or social
relaxation. The reason for it all is
that no boat has come into Nehalem
bay for four months, and it is on water
transportation that Nehalem depends.
Coming from Tennessee.
Arlington Thirty immigrant! from
Tennessee have arrived in Arlington
and will found a colony in Gilliam

more families will arrive within the

of at least 100,000 acres. All eay they

Settlers H.tve to Travel 40 Miles to

Wallowa A land commissioner Is

what causes the delay by Judge Wol
verton. At present, homesteaders or
pot sons locating on timber land have
to go either to Enteraprie, or Promise,
a distance of 20 miles, and return.
There has been a land commissioner
here for several years, but owing to the
removal to Enterprise of Judge O. M.
Cookins, the office was vacant. Is
tine, ten miles distant, had a commis
sioner, but lie was killed early in the
winter by a runaway team. Now there
is no commissioner nearer than Prom
ise, where there is one, or Enterprise,
where there are two. Wallowa is cen
trally located and nearer vacant lauds
than any of the towns supplied except
There are at present many hundreds
of acres of timber and agricultural lands
near Wallowa to be taken up, but with
the extra ei (tense of from $5 to $H add

even a homestead an expensive luxury

The water is the highest known this

with about 8,000 still in the smaller
tributaries. With the clearance of '.his

While not a member of the prosecu

the indictment of St. John, it is under

direct Information against St. John.
Just why he was arrested the prosecu

It was rumored that his arrest was
made at the request of the Mineow tiers'

him a dangerous man.
St. John's reputation as an organiaer
