Washington, Nov. 7. — In his an­
nual report made public today, General
MacKenzie, chief of engineers, asks that
the following appropriations be made
in the next sundry civil bill:
Mouth of Columbia river, $300,000;
Celilo canal, $260,000; Willamette and
Columbia below Portland, $125 000;
Columbia between Vancouver and the
mouth of the Willamette, $30,000: Ta
coma harbor, $200,000. Each and all
of these appropriations were authorized
in the river and harbor bill passed at
the last session; these respective sums
have been expended or are covered by
contracts now in force, so that not one
dollar asked for by General MacKenzie
will go to pay for new work. In other
wordB, General MacKenzie is asking
only for enough money to pay for work
now under way or already completed.
He asks for no new appropriations for
he has been instructed by the secretary
of war to cut down his estimates and
confine himself solely to work hereto­
fore authorized.
Personally, General MacKenzie be­
lieves congress should make Urge ap­
propriations for the mouth of the Co­
lumbia river, and be thinks it wrong
to allow work on that project to stop at
its present incompleted stage, and yet

1,800 Acres.
Salem— The transfer of the Colombia
Southern Irrigation company’s interests
in the Bend country to a newly formed
corporation organized by men connected
with the Harriman system is a sign
pointing toward the construction of a
railroad from some point on Harriman
lines to the irrigation district in Crook
county.
The Columbia Southern Irrigation
company was largely backed by the
same interests that built the Columbia
Southern railway. The sale of the road
to Harriman people lias now been fol­
lowed by the transfer of the irrigation
company’s interests in the 27,000 acres
of land being reclaimed just west of the
Deschutes river and north of the Turn»-
lo, in Crook county.
This land is
northwest of Bend and practically ad­
joining that being reclaimed by the
Deschutes Irrigation & Power company.
The new company, known as the Co-
lumtiia Southern Irrigating company,
has tiled articles in the State depart­
ment with James E. Wilson, H . F.
Connor and W. K. Litzenberg as ineor-
poratots. The capital stock is $300,-
000. It is Btated in the articles that
the compaiiy proposes to take over the
property and affairs of the Columbia
Southern Irrigation company.
Klamath Falls— Land in the Klamath
basin is now being sought after bv big
speculators as well as the man who is
looking for an ideal place to build a
home and rear a family.
The order
from Washington, D. C., calling for tha
placing of bids for the work on the
main canal of the Klamath irrigation
project, is bringing in investors by the
score, and local land agents are having
their hands full to handle the would-be
purchasers.
The latest deal of moment in realty
was closed this week, when C. E.
Wantland, of Denver, Colo., land agent
for the Union Pacific railroad, closed a
deal whereby he and others became
owners of the Mitchell tract of 1.800
acres, lying two miles below Klamath
Falls.
The price paid for this tract
was $40,000. Charles W. Eherline, of
New York, land agent for the Southern
Pacific, who is now stationed at San
Francisco, was also here this week
looking over the country and inquiring
about land values. What his mission
was is not yet given out.«
Land values in the basin have re­
mained practically the same tor several
months, the prospect of irrigation not
having affected them so far to a great
extent.

O.egon City — Stock iB being sub­

stalling a mutual telephone exchange
in this city as the connecting link to
the successful operation of the rural
telephone system in Clackamas county.
It is projiosed to form a company with
a capital stock of $7,500 and install an
exchange having 150 phones. This ex­
change has been petitioned for by sub­
scribers to the various rural telephone
companies throughout the county.
At

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 ill this
branch of the stock raising industry,
although the
estimates
sometimes
made, of $3,000,000 having

brought into this countiy 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 W . G.
Ayre, another sheep king, from Durkee,
Baker county, both state that about
$2,000,000 wortli of sheep have l>een
shipped from Eastern Oregon this year.
Prices have ruled from $1.75 as high as
$3.50 in extreme case?.
Considerable
shipping lias been done this year from
Huntington and Ontario, these points
being most convenient to Malheur and
Harney counties. Freight rates to the

these points as from those farther north

Washington, Nov. 6.— It can be stat­
ed on reliable authority that the Roose­
velt administration is in sympathy
with the movement now on foot in Ore­
gon to induce Senator Mitchell and
Representatives Hermann and W illiam ­
son to resign their seats in congress.
Officials of the administration share
the belief universally held in Wash­
ington that Oregon should not be de­
nied representation in congress; it is
acknowledged that Mitchell, Hermann
and Williamson w ill never again be
able to render their state effective ser­
vices; they certainly cannot do so un­
der prevailing conditions.
It being
apparent that not one of these men
could possibly be in position to perform
active duty as a member of the Fifty-
ninth congress, the administration
thinks it is incumbent upon them all
to resign.
For obvious reasons, no member of
the coadminiBtrition can be quoted on
this matter, but, if the president’ s
views and those of his various cabinet
officers could be printed, the people of
Oregon would have no-doubt as to the
position of the administration. So far
the administration lias done nothing to
force Mitchell, Hermann or W illiam ­
son out of congress, though some offi­
cials of the department of Justice have
been urging the attorney general to
ask for an advancement of the Mitchell
case on the docket of the United States
Supreme court.
I f this is done, and
the Supreme court sustains the findings
of the lower court, Mitchell w ill he
deprived of his seat some time this
winter and Governor Chamberlain will
have an opportunity to appoint Iiis suc­
cessor ty serve until March 4, 1907.

Secretary Sees Great Improvement at
Panama.
Panama, Nov. 6.— Secretary of War
Taft held a long conference this morn­
ing with Chief Engineer Stevens.
To­
day Secretary Taft and Mr. Stevens w ill
go over the works at Flmpire City and
Culebra cut and afterwards w ill go by
boat from Mindi to Colon, examining
at the same time the harbor improve­
ments at Cristobal.
Secretary Taft informs the Associa'ed
Press that he was very mnch pleased
with the situation here, which he says
lias greatly changed for the better since
his last trip. He thought from what
he had already seen that the work on
the canal was progressing satisfactorily
and was now efficiently organized. He
said he was happy to notice that the
spirit of the men on the canal had im ­
proved, and that the condition of five
or six months ago did not exist.
The secretary said the sanitary con­
ditions are excellent and believed that
by continuing the present methods yel­
low fever conld be controlled. He
thought the efficiency of the laborers
was not as high as it should be, but he
said that he contemplated making no
change until the men had been given a
fair trial. The department of Commis­
saries, where the men could get proper
food, he added, would raise their effi­
ciency.
ELECTION RESULTS
McClellan and Jerome Carry New
York by Small Plurality.
REFORM SWEEPS PHILADELPHIA
Contest in Ohio Close — Republicans
Carry
Massachusetts, Rhode
Island and New Jersey.
Washington, Nov. 8. — Election re­
turns received by tne Associated Press
up to 2 o’clock this morning show that
the Democrats have carried the mayor­
alty campaign in New York City, the
state ticket in Pennsylvania, the state
ticket in Virginia and the city ticket in
Louisville, while the Republicans made
a clean sweep in Massachusetts and in
Chicago and Cook county, and have
carried their tickets in New Jersey,
Rhode Island, Nebraska and Maryland.
In New York Hearst has a plurality
in the Borough of Brooklyn of almost
16,000, with 14 election districts miss­
ing. The returns indicate McClellan’ s
re-election by several thousand plural­
ity. Hearst has charged fraud in the
voting. Bird S. Coler was elected bor­
ough president of Brooklyn on the Mu­
nicipal Ownershi]» ticket.
The New
York election shows that municipal
ownership will be a considerable factor
in the city’s politics.
In Ohio the result is still doubtful,
though the returns up to a late hour
indicated ttie election of Pattison, the
Democratic candidate for governor.
The inffrage amendment in Maryland
was defeated overwhelmingly. Massa­
chusetts elected a Republican governor
by a majority approximating that of
Douglas, the present Democratic gov­
ernor. F'oliowing is a summary of the
returns:
New York — Mayor, George B. Mc­
Clellan, Democrat, re-elected by small
plurality; W illiam Travers Jerome,
independent, district attorney, re-elect­
e d ; Bird 8. Coler, Municipal Owner­
ship, elected borough president of
Brooklyn.
Ohio— Both Democratic and Repub­
lican leaders claim election. Pattison,
Democrat, carried Cincinnati, Cleve­
land, city and county, and the Demo­
crats made gains in Toledo and Akron.
Maryland — The
constitutional
amendment, whose purpose was to dis­
franchise negro voters, was defeated.
Republicans elected the state com )«
troller and city officials. Political com •
plexion of the legislature uncertain.
Massachusetts — The Republicans
elected Curtis Guild, Jr., Republican,
governor by 29,435 plurality, and E. 8.
Draper, Republican, lieutenant gov­
ernor by 3,942.
Chicago — Republicans made a clean
sweep in Chicago and Cook county.
Robert R. McCormick, Republican,
elected president of the board of sani­
tary trustees.
Rhode Island — Clean Republican
sweep.
Pennsylvania — Philadelphia over­
whelmingly carried by the City party
(reform ticket).
Berry,
Democrat,
elected state treasurer by upward of
75.000 plurality.
Virginia— The Democratic plurality
is about 20,000, and Swauson is elected
governor. Negroes generally remaine«!
away from the polls. The next legis­
lature on joint ballot w ill have 23 Re­
publicans, instead of 16, as at present.
Salt Lake City— The American party
(anti-Mormon) defeated the Mormon
Democratic and Republican candidates
for mayor.
New Jersey— Republican gains in
