May Dc Viatf for Irrigation in
Washington, Aug. 2. Tlio reclama

promising irrigation project In Oregon,
this time In central Lako county, on
the north shore o( Hummer lako. A
tract ol about 125,000 acres hna been
withdrawn from all save restricted
homestead entry, pending further In
vestigation to determine whether or
not It will bo practicable to Irrigate a
portion or ail of tho area with tho
watcra of tho Ana river, a small stream
which feeds Hummer lake. It la

Ana river project aro Included In town.
ship 20, ranges 17 and 18; township
30, ranges 10, 17 and 18; and township
31, range 17, all south and cast.
A new project has also been found
In Washington, known aa the I'rlcst
Kapids project. Nino townships lying
along tho Cloumbia river In Yakima,
Douglas and Kittitas counties have
liecn withdrawn tending final deter
mination of tho feasibility of remov
ing water from tho Columbia river at
Priest Rapids and bringing It down
upon the Columbia valley lands lying
below tho rapids, on cither bank of tho
river. Tho lands withdrawn are:
Townships 13, 14 and 16, rane 23,
and townihlps 13 and 14, ranges 24, 26
and 20, all north and cast.
This project, while adjoining the Big
Rend project, is separate and distinct
and will be made tho subject of special
study this stimmer. Its success de
pends largoly upon the ability to get
water upon the land at reasonable cost.
A considerable portion of these lands
aro now under cultivation and tho con
currence of farmers must be had before
this work can be undertaken.
DlfflCULTIES WITH WIRES.
The Long Circuit Through Siberia
Is Affected by rire and Storm.
Rt. Petersburg, Aug. 2. M. Durno
vo, the minister of telegraphs, who la
In temporary chaigo of the department
of the intorior, wilt place tho depart
ment o( posts and telegraph in tho
normal as well aa virtual control of '
Under Secretary Ecvastianod, under
whose administration the postal and
telegraph systems of tho empire hava
mado great strides.
Tho greatest difficulties are due to
tho ojMiratlon of 10,000 miles of over
head wires in the Far East. Thunder
storms aro of daily occurrence through
out this vast stretch of wirea and tho
forest regions aro subject in summer
time to continual fires. These facta
are sufficient to explain why tho dis
patches from tho front aro sometimes
delayed a couple of days.
Tlio telegraph department makes a
practice of holding up ordinary mee
sigcs at Harbin and forwarding them
by post, but In the meantime they are
blocking tho Siberian wires. It must
oo noted that official dispatches in
cipher aro not abrnvlated and have to
bo repeated, and these take precedence
over all other telegrams.
