Some weeks ago Engineer Parkhlll

Xcw Ijuv AfTrrtN Situation.
According to newn reports from
Washington an net s about to pass
Congress taking from tho Sooretory
of the Interior the jtowor to appor
tion funds for government reclama
tion work, nnd providing that her,
after annual appropriations from the
reclamation fund shall bo authorized
by Congress. Practically evory wes
tern member protested against tho
measure but It passed tho House and
1 expected to co through tho Sonata.
This will affect the local Irrigation,
whether seriously or not. dopendlng
on the attitude takon by Congress in
the fttturo In making appropriations
for local projects. It will bo romoni
bored that Secretary Lane visited
Central Oregon last summer and
Mcdfonl CongrcN OjjMned to Central
Oregon Itoule but Condition Point
to Jt nn Xntural filne of Highway
Because of statements to the effect
that (he Pacific Highway might run
through Central Oregon Instead of
tlio Willamette valloy Sam Hill, tho
Washington good road enthusiast,
camo In for a good deal of crltlolsm
at tho good road congress held at
Medford laat week.
Tho bettor condition of Central
Oregon roads, the coming completion
of the Columbia Highway and the un
willingness of the valley counties to
vote funds for roads wero given by
Mr. Hill as reasons why tho Pacific
route might better run on thla aide
of the mountains. As might bo sup
posed with tho meeting held In a
western valley town and delegates
present In ffrco from Willamette
valloy points tho suggestion was not
received with approval.
Judgo Worden of Klamath Falls
camo to the support of Mr. Hill and
according to a news report, "advocat
ing tho construction of a general and
comprehensive system of gravel and
macadam roads. Instead of n perma
nent herd surface highways, which ho
said southern Oregon could not af
ford at tho present time. Judge Wor
den said that If tho Willamette val
ley residents didn't hurry up and
come Into line thero would be a Pa
cific Highway from Klamath Falh
through Central Oregon to the
Columbia. The speaker maintained
that God had made a good road in
that section by laying out a country
with n natural grade, few streams to
croso or obstructions to overcome."
