Road Through
Dallas The construction of a per
manent highway through Dallas and
Falls City to the Lincoln county line
to connect with the road being built by
Lincoln county now seems' assured.
Voters of Falls City this week re
pealed the charter creating a separate
road district out of Falla City, This
puts the city In road district No. 21
of Polk county, which reaches to the
Lincoln county line.
The county court needed the votes in
Falls City to vote a special tax. The
vote that repealed the charter will be
sufficient to carry the special tax nec
essary to carry on the proposed con
struction of the highway through the
State to Lease
Rich in
Salem The State Land board has
decided to lease Albert and Summer
lakes, which contain rich salt deposits,
and announced that it would advertise
for bids at once. All bids must be
received by December 10, and must be
accompanied by certified checks or
bonds for $10,000 as guarantees of
good faith on the part of the bidders.
Inasmuch as there is a difference of
opinion as to the value of the salt de
posits, the board decided that it would
be to the best interest of the state to
lease the lakes rather than sell them
outright, as had been proposed. It is
planned that the state be given a roy
alty of 25 per cent or more and that it
be guaranteed a minimum payment an
nually. C. A. Sheppard, of Sheppard &
Brock, Portland, appeared before the
board in the interest of Jason Moore,
of New York, who represents an East
Reclaming of 46,500 Acres
In Lake County Approved
Salem State Engineer Lewis said
recently that he approved the applica
tion of the Goose Lake Irrigation com
pany for the reclamation of 46,600
acres of land and the construction of a
large reservoir in Goose Lake valley
: in the southern part of Lake county.
I He said the company soon would com-
' plete the reservoir and main canals at
a cost of approximately $1,000,000.
The impounding dam, which is 66 feet
high, 200 feet long at the bottom and
600 at the top, has been completed, its
. storage capacity being 65,000 acre
feet. The north and south canals, two
of the largest, are completed with the
exception of certain flumes.
"The company," Baid Mr. LewiB,
"will sell water at the rate of $25 an
acre, and, as soon aB the land under
the present canal has been sold, the
, j project will be extended by the con-
' struction of high line canals which
probably will bring the total acreage
under the project to 60,000. Fees col
lected by this office on approval of the
permits aggregate $526.09. While
water rights for the project were
initiated under the old law, the com
t pany handling the bonds insisted that
the same be brought under the state
water code to secure protection offered
by it."
Expert Talks on Clover.
Albany C. W. Creel, a government
agricultural expert of Washington, D.
C, addressed the clover growers of
Linn county at the Commercial club
Sixty-five clover growers attended
the lecture.
Mr. Creel talked to the growers on
methods to be used in exterminating
the midge and rootborer, which have
materially injured the clover crop this
In 1912, between $100,000 and
$125,000 worth of seed was produced
here. Last year the crop amounted
to $225,000. The Linn county clover
men will co-operate with Oregon con
gressmen in securing an appropriation
of $10,000 to establish an experi
mental station in Oregon to be de
voted to the clover industry.
Oregon Not Hiding Coin.
Salem That the residents of Oregon
are not hoarding their money, but are
circulating it as freely as usual, was
the declaration of State Superintend
ent of Banks Sargent when asked if
the statement of Secretary of the
Treasury McAdoo regarding the people
hoarding their money applied to this
' state. The superintendent recently
showed by reports from all banks that
a charge of Mr. McAdoo regarding
banks piling up immense reserves and
charging high rates of interest was
not the case in Oregon.
Hybrid Ducks Killed.
Silver Lake A new species of
ducks, at least a new kind to Central
Oregon, has made its appearance on
Lake county lakes with the opening of
the hunting season. The stranger ap
pears to be a bluebill-mallard hybrid.
Only two of the new birds have been
killed so far, but hunters report hav
ing seen a flock of a dozen or more of
apparently the same kind of ducks.
Astoria Opposes Waterfront Bills.
Astoria The Port of Astoria Com
mission at its meeting adopted resolu
tions opposing the passage of the in
itiative measure known as the "public
docks and water frontage amendment
as well as the initiative measure en
titled the "municipal wharves and
docks bill." The resolutions recite
that each of the proposed measures is
detrimental to the best interests of the
Now Assured
Siletz basin. A special tax of 5 mills
is planned upon. This will provide
about $10,000.
The proposed road through the Siletz
will lessen the distance between Port
land and Newport by 16 miles; will
afford a scenic route to the coast, and
will be through a country noted for
game and fish.
It iB planned to call a special elec
tion in Road district 21 this fall so
that work can be commenced on the
new road next spring. Most of the
work will be confined to grading and
widening the present road. Automo
biles now travel with ease to a point

ern syndicate. Mr. Moore recently
offered the board in the neighborhood
of $2,000,000 for the lakes, the offer
being declined. Another offer of more
than $2,000,000 was received, but a
bond of $5000 required by the board
was not given. .
Mr. Sheppard asked that the bids
for leasing the property be opened as
soon aB possible so, in case his client
was successful, a company could be
organized in time to escape payment
of war tax on stocks and bonds, which,
he thought, would amount to about
$15,000. Governor West and State
Treasurer Kay, however, raid the
board had made it a rule to give 60
days for filing bids, and could not devi
ate from it. Mr. Sheppard suggested
that the board investigate a California
law which provides that the state re
ceive 25 per cent royalties on similar
lumalo Irrigation Project
Finished December First
Salem State Engineer Lewis has
announced that the Tumalo irrigation
project will be completed by Decern
ber 1. He announced that 72 feet of
the big dam had been constructed and
that only four feet remained to be
built. The Tumalo project, which
formerly was the Columbia Southern
project, was taken over by the state
before the last session of the legisla
ture, and an appropriation of $450,000
was made for completing the work.
About 23,000 acres have been re-
claimed, the entire appropriation being
necessary to do the work. Not more
than half the land has been sold and
no estimate of the value has been
fixed. However, in the neighborhood
of $40 an acre must be received for
the state to be fully reimbursed and
receive a profit of $5 an acre, as pro
vided in the act making the appropria
tion. '
Attractive Prizes Offered
at Redmond Potato Show
Redmond Many attractive premi
urns are being presented at the Fourth
Annual Potato show this week. Some
of the prizes offered are : t
Silver loving cup value $25, present
ed by the Great Northern railway for
the 86 largest potatoes, any variety;
for the best general exhibit of farm
products grown by an individual exhib
itor, open to all farmers in Crook
county donated by the Oregon Trunk
railway, first potato digger, second $10
in cash ; for the largest and best dia
play of different varieties of potatoes,
not less than one crate of each, , open
to all growers, donated by the O.-W,
R. & N., a cultivator.
A new feature of this years' Bhow iB
a eugenic contest.
Among the speakers is Professors E.
B. Fitts. H. T. French and J. E. Lar
son and Mrs. Robbins, of the Oregon
Agricultural college.
Sand Spread in Streets.
Hood River Crews of men have
been engaged the last seveal days in
covering the center of the streets with
crude oil, on which is placed a cover
ing of sand. Horses thus get a foot
hold on the concrete paving and the
problem that has been troubling the
members of the board of aldermen has
apparently been solved. At this sea
son of the year scores of wagonloads
of apples are being delivered at the
warehouses of the Apple Growers' as
sociation. The shoes of the horses
wear smooth in a few days and many
accidents have been narrowly averted,
when teams have fallen on the con
crete paving.
Baker Mines Developed.
Baker Frank McCarvel, of Sump
ter, has started development work on
the Moon Anchor mine at Cable Cove,
having taken a contract from T. Mehr
and Frank Degande to put in 200 feet
of tunnel. The tunnel is already m
150 feet. Some shipping ore has at
ready been uncovered, but it is the
hope of the owners that the work now
under way will penetrate the ore shoot
for which it is -headed. The Green
horn mining district also reports re
newed activity. At Tipton 20 men are
constructing a stamp mill.
C. F. Stone la Appointed.
Salem Governor West confirmed
the report that Harold Clifford, of
Baker, had resigned as a member of
the State Fish and Game commission
and C. F. Stone, of Klamath Falls, had
been appointed to the place. Mr,
Stone formerly was a member of the
commission, but resigned several
months ago with other members be
cause of dissatisfaction with the atti
tude of M. J. Kinney, another member.
600,000 From Belgium
Flee Into Holland
London Belgian refugees now in
Holland number 600,000, according to
the correspondent of the Exchange
Telegraph company at The Hague.
"The Dutch authorities are greatly
embarrassed by the refugees, who are
Incessantly streaming into Holland,"
adds the correspondent.
"Owing to the lack of railway ma
terial thousands are forced to wait on
the roads for transportation. '
The Dutch government probably will
take Bteps jointly with the German
government for the speedy return, of
the refguees."
The Germans have pushed up from
Antwerp and are occupying villages in
the direction of the Dutch frontier,
forcing the Inhabitants to flee into
Holland, according to the Rosendaal
(Holland) correspondent of the Weekly
Dispatch. Towns near the frontier
have been forced to cloBe their gates,
owing to their Inability to receive any
more refugees.
A message to Reuter s Telegram
company from Amsterdam says :
A telegram to the Handelsblad,
dispatched at noon Monday from Ber-gen-op-Zoon,
a Dutch town near th
Belgian border, says that two German
officers arrived in a motorcar at the
frontier town of Putten, Holland. The
officers informed the Dutch commander
there that Antwerp is now under Ger
man administration and asked him to
induce refugees to return to their
homes. Many of those who had fled
complied with the request.
During the past months I have
grown accustomed to the sight of
streams of refugees trailing over all
the roads of Belgians, until the queer
illusion has grown up at that they are
always the same refugees, they look
so pitiably alike," says the Rotterdam
correspondent of the Times in a dis
patch to his paper. He continued;
But all the scenes on the roads of
Belgium for weeks past must be added
together and multiplied 20 fold to re
semble the spectacle on the roads to
Holland during the last two days.
Hardly any migration in the history of
the Israelites, Kalmuks or Tartars can
have equaled it.
The two relieving features were
the extreme kindness shown to refu
gees by people at the frontier, and the
beautiful weather. These things re
duced the mortality to a minimum.
"Besides the long exodus by the
roads to Holland I saw a crowd esti-
mated at 150,000 blocking the ferry
and pontoon at Antwerp on their way
to get trains to St. Nicholas and
Ghent. The German guns were so
placed that their Bhells reached every
portion of the city during the last
stages of the bombardment, the chief
characteristic -of which was the hap-
hazard way in which the fire was
aimed in all directions.
Great Mining Convention
to Open in Phoenix, Ariz.
Phoneix, Ariz. The 17th annual
convention of the American Mining
Congress, which will open at Phoenix,
Ariz., December 7th, for a five-day
session, bids fair to be of great bene
fit, not only to the state of Arizona,
but to the whole Southwest.
Mining men from every part of the
United States will be present in large
numbers and the difficulties and prob
lems now confronting the metal min
ing industry, will be threshed out and
valuable suggestions offered by men
who have made mining their life work
and aided largely in the many im
provements effected in this great in
dustry during the past few years.
The work of the United State Bu
reau of Mines so far accomplished and
plans for the future work, especially
as affecting Western metal mining
will be explained by the director, Dr,
Holmes, assisted by a corps of assist
ants. It is probable that a demon
stration car will be Bent to Phoenix
during convention week.
Italian Army Ready and
Equipped for Winter
London The Daily Mail correspon
dent at ChiasBO, Switzerland, says:
"The Italian government is spend
ing $10,000,000 on winter outfits for
troops, including woolen vests and fur
coats, suitable for a campaign in the
mountains. The Italian army is now
quite ready for any eventuality.

Lots Cast for Sacrifice.
London "Lots were drawn by four
officers," says the Daily News' Ostend
correspondent, "to decide who should
remain in command of Fort St. Marie,
northwest of Antwerp, the officer thus
being sworn to fight to the death.
"The lot fell on a married man with a
family. An unmarried officer imme
diately offered to take his place, and
the officer who originally was chosen
reluctantly accepted. The three offi
cers then retired, bidding a touching
farewell to their comrade who remain
ed behind."
Germany Is Overjoyed.
Rome Dispatches from Berlin say
that the capitulation of Antwerp has
caused unprecedented enthusiasm
throughout Germany, where the gen
eral opinion is that the fall of the
Belgian city marks the beginning of
the end. Everywhere there are signs
of great rejoicing. Flags have been
raised and demonstrations parade the
streets, acclaiming the army."
Portland Hop buying continues
without interruption at steady prices.
Dealers report that it is difficult to In
