Make Metier Road.
II. C. Hooper of Antelope, a
Wasco county commissioner, and
Dell Howell, a road supervisor,
have recently Ixicn visiting the d li
ferent towns of Crook county seeing
what can be done in raising a fund
for the improvement of the Cow
Canyon road. Wasco has levied a
road tax that will give about $500
for this purpose, but that is Insuf
ficient and it is desired that Crook
citiens raise by subscription anoth
er $ 500.
The road to be Improved is really
a Crook county highway, as all the
traffic freight, mail and passenger
travel from this part of Central
Oregon passes through the canyon
to and from the railroad at Shanlko.
Of course the law will not allow the
county to cxcud its money on a
road outside its borders, and hence
If any money is raised It will have
to ! by privute subscription. How
ever, it is quite certain the desired
amount of moury will be raised as
it li of utmost importance to have a
good road through the canyon. It
is understood a mass meeting will
be held at Princville soon and steps
taken to raise Crook's share of the
One plan proposed is to run a
road through the canyon on wat
er grade by following the small
stream that runs through it. A
little blasting will have to be done
tn-gct rid of n jutting point of rock
known as "The Horn." The new
road will follow the one built by the
company that planned to put on the

Oregon Is Now Assured a Modern
Water Law Will Aid (Ireatly to
Develop the State Will Alako
Tltlea to Water Certain.
Statkiiousk, Salem, Or., Feb.
tj. Carrying an emergency clause
which gives the governor power to
appoint two division superintend
ents, the Miller water code was
passed by the senate nt 1 o'clock
this afternoon by 32 votes, 3 voting
no and 5 absent. Assurances have
been given Senator F. J. Miller that
the House will pass the measure
without delay. This is the bill
prepared by the Conservation Com
mission, and is the code so long de
sired by irrigntionists and opposed
by corporations.
From 10 o'clock until after 1, the
Senate considered the code in the
committee of the whole, with Smith
of Umatilla, in the chair. There
were few amendments or changes
until the emergency clause was
reached, and then the argument be
gan. It was opposed but the op
position was overridden when it
was shown that unless an emergency
was attached, the valuable water
rights of the state would be appro
priated within 90 days. KuMern
Oregon members also favored the
emergency, saying that only by its
becoming a law immediately would
Hasteru Oregon be benefitted dur
ing the present irrigation system,
and that there were one or two ir
rigation protects pending the action
of the measure. It was ussertcd
that of all the bills before the legis
lature this most needed an emcr
gency clause, and so it was not
stricken out.
President Bowerman offered an
amendment, which 'carried. He
was afraid that the bill might build
tip a nest of arrogant officials, who
would override the farmers. The
bill provides for the appointment of
two division superintendents and a
state engineer. Bowerman moved
that the superintendents be elected
by the people for four-year terms,
beginning with the next general
election. His contention was that
when the superintendents receive
their power from the people they
will be more careful.
Senator Miller protested that in
competent men might be elected,
whereas by the appointive methods
experts could be engaged,
Opposition to the code was un
dermined by Senator Miller yester
day when lie succeeded in lining
up si votes for the bill- When the
opponents discovered they had lost
the Senate, they threw up their
hands. The- House has adopted a
water code somewhat similar which
is now in the hands of a committee
and the committee is slow in act
ing. It was only after Miller had
forcul the issue that the Senate
code bill was reported out.
A feature of the Senate bill
which was not contained in the
House irrigation bill is ihe section
protecting vested rights. That sec
tion of the Senate bill was agreed
to by the Conservation Commission
and the representatives of the
power companies and its language
is so broad as to protect any and
every right that now exists, with
out in any way creatine new rights
or recognizing any that may be in
The Senate bill also makes the
water masters subject to some con
trol by the county courts as to the
the amount of time they shall work,
so that if a water master tries to
graft he can be discharged. The
plan is to have the water masters
work only during the portion oi
the year when they are needed.

Dill fntroduced In Legislature to Vote

A bill has been introduced into

submission to the jKrople of a pro
posed constitutional amendment.
which, if adopted, will allow the
state to build and operate railroads
in those parts of the state that are
unsupplicd with necessary transpor
tation facilities. The main object
of the bill is to put the state in a
position where it can build a rail
road into Central and Eastern Ore
gon ami open up this vast and
wealthy inland empire should Har-
rimsn refuse longer to do so. The
measure has the unanimous sup
port of the Portland Chamber of
Commerce which bent a large num
ber of influential men to Salem to
lobby for its passage. Both A. M
Drake and F. S. Stanley appeared
before the committee in behalf of
the bill.
If the bill passes the legislature
the people will vote on the amend
ment at the November election of
The bill would empower the state
to issue bonds lor the building and
operation of railroads in the state
when considered expedient. This
may be done by the state or by cer
tain districts through which the
propose! road would be built
As stated before, the purpose of
the bill is to put the stat in o posi
tion where it can throw off the
shackles of Harriman, if he refuses
longer to build, and the state itself
will go into the business of railroad
building in order to otien tin the
vast, rich, undeveloped sections ot
the state. Undoubtedly the first
line built would be one through
Husteru and Central Oregon.
In discussing the proposed
amendment before the Portland
Chamber of Commerce, W. W. Cot
ton, Harrimaii's attorney for the
Northwest, said that they fullv in
tended to build a line up the Des
chutes river as announced, but they
were being delayed by opposition
from the Oregon Trunk Line, by
litigation, and through failure to
have their right of way maps ap
proved by the government officials
He stoutly maintained, however,
that the road will be built as soon
as arrangements can be perfected.

Move Started to Advertise Crook
County at Seattle Fair.
The Plan Is to Secure Appropriation
from County Court If Possible,
Rale Mote by Donation, and
Place Able Aim In Charge.
Do you believe in endeavoring to
bring new settlers into Crook
county? Do you believe in show
ing to the world, by judicious ad
vertising, what opportunities lor
the homeseeker we have here? If
you do, you sboubJfall in line with
a movement that Is now under way
to send a complete exhibit of the
county's products to the Alaska
Yukon Pacific Exposition. Tins'
exhibit would be housed in the Ore
gon bcilding and a competent man
placed in charge.
The idea 13 us follows. The men
who are behind this movement ask
that the different localities of the
county appoint a committee of one
or more men whose duty will be to
appear before the county court when
it convenes March 3 and petition it
to appropriate $500 for the purpose
of procuring this exhibit and pay
ing the expenses of putting a good
man in charge of it at the exposi
tion. If the appropriation is se
cured, an attempt will then be
made to raise an additional $500 by
donation among the merchants and
others of the county. It is believed
$1,000 will be ample to provide for
