agreement controlling tho entlro lum

unlawful restraint of trade. It is fur
ther alleged that tho price of lumber
here, as a result ol tho combination, is

Irrigation In Klamath County la

ing of 2,600 acres.
This makes tho assurance of this
project being completed by tho govern
meut dowbly sure, as about 03 per cent
oi the surplus holdings embraced In the
lower project has now wen signed up
with tho Klamath Waterusera' associa
tion. Tho government only asked for
(5 per cent of tho total and 73 per cent
was signed up before Mr. Heames came
into tho association. Though this was
not quite tho amount asked, all prepar
ations had been mado to go on with tho
work without him, nnd the people were
assured that the government would not
turn It down, regardless of whether ho
signed or not.
Mr. Kennies' tract was tho largrst In
dividual holding In tho project not
signed, and tho land belonging to tho
O. W, Smith estate, consisting of 1,200
acres, is practically all that is left Jout
at present. This will cost tho csta'e

wish to sign up for irrigation. Other

In regard to the published rumors to
the effect that the majority of the
members of the consulting board of en

canal at Panama, General Davis, chair
man of the board, said today:
"So far as I am aware, neither the
board nor any individual member of it
has expressed any opinion as to tho
type of canal that is favored. The
board Is not in possession of all tho
facts bearing on the question of type.
"Two committees have been appoint

GIVES UP HARNEY SCHEME.
Government Cannot Reclaim Great
Valley In Southern Oregon.
Washington, Oct. 21. The Reclam
atlon service bar, for the present, at
least, abandoned tho Idea of construct
ing an irrigation project in Harney
valley, in Southern Oregon, and it now
seems improbable that a government
project will ever bo built there. Much
land In that vicinity is now In private
ownership, owners are not prepared to
iiibkc Euiimaciory terms wim mo gov
ernment and furthermore, water rights
are in such a condition that litigation
would probably be necessary before the
government could build.
In view of this fact the secretary of
the Interior, on recommendation of
the Reclamation service, today with
drew his objection to the right ofway
which tho Portland Ditch company

Root Proves Gloucester Fishermen
May Fish OtT Newfoundland.
Washington, Oct. 20. After a con
ferenco between Secretary Root and Sir
Moitimcr Durand, tho Hritiih ambas
sador, lasting for an hour and a half,
it was announced that a eody and
satisfactory solution of tho Gloucester
Newfoundland fisheries controversy was
in sight. Tho facts obtained showed
that the Newfoundland inspector of
revenue protection service dirtcted that
American vessels should not bo allowed
to fish under American register, on the
ground that they had never dono so In
the past. Prior to this time the Amer
ican fishermen had bought bait in New
foundland under fishing license. They
aro now prevented by law from buying
bait, and the authorities have been un
willing to permit them to catch herring
without a special fishing ll.eiue.
Mr. Root informed the ambassador
that an American register is a ship's
highest proof of natioi Billy, and" carries
with it not only a license to trade, but
also a regular fishinir license.
As soon as this fact is made clear to
tho .Newfoundland authorities, it is ex
pected they will withdraw all objec
tion. Meantime, the American fisher
men, with the approval of the S'alo
department, have been instructed to
continue their fishing.
