"It Is ono of tho things wa'havo

Lumber Company, expressed tno hopo
that the possibility of Increased earn
ings would enable Hie carriers to gel
intotlnrtwnrkot for more lumber.
''.The railroads In normal times nro
among tho heaviest purohasera of

said. "In tho last few yearn their

Just such work as you have conducted

What was balled as a victory for
Oregon In tbo controversy over tho
$160,000 allotment for irrigation
work horo was announced In dtap.it
tlies from Washington last week. ir
rnrro sober examination of the isrte.
however, it became apparent that the
victory waa not so great after all and
that soma time may yet elapse beforo
Central Oregon sees any Federal rec
lamation moncr spent.
From the beginning It has been folt
by nearly all that Secretary Lano was
the stumbling block In tbo -way of
tho Immediate allotment to a Central
Orogou projcot of tho Federal $ Iflrtf
000 and tho efforts of tho dregsn.
congressional delegation havo been
directed toward recalling to his mind
tbo promises he waa understood' to
havo mado when he visited the Dev
cr.utoa valley lost year.
Congressman Slnnott has beqn csj
peclally active In thla and on Satujj
day Congressman Slnnott tclograps
ed C C. Chapman, manager of tli
Portland Commercial Club, as fol
lows: "Secretary Lane told senator
Cnamborlaln aad myself that he
would recommend to the house oom
m'ttce approprlaUon of $4(0.000 r
moro If necessary, to be expended nn
lomo Oregon project now undor In
vostlgation by eaglneera of tbo Ljitjaf-.
tor department and recommended trr
Hum without conditioning such ap
pioprjatlon upon the appropriation of
llko sum by the State of Oregon."
Tbo news contained In this mes
aago was at first believed to represent
a coniploto chango of front on the
part of Secretary Lano but when l
camo to bo studied It was reallxed
that thla waa far from being tbo case.
Washington It became apparent that
Lano waa sticking to his guns on tho
Reclamation Service allotment and at
the samo time trying to stop the "
gument and criticism from Orojtm
by offering to try to get Congress to
make an appropriation without an
tings on it.
Lnne'x Action Queried.
That tbla uroceduro on the part '
Scretary Lane was not fully undir-
