ThU Is Hit tint Ion Hvcn if Oregon Puts
Up Its Klniro According to Coinjt-
trolIT Co-Opcration Con ho
Carried Out by CongrcM.
Another monkay wroaoh has bean
thrown Into the maohlnory of co
operative irrigation work in Oregon,
planned to bo done by state appro
priation and allotment by Secretary
Lane from tho Reclamation fund.
This time It comes la tho shapo of a.
decision from tho Comptroller of tho
Treasury limiting the time In which
any sum put up by the Department of
tho Interior may be spent.
Now of the decisloa of tho Comp
troller appeared In the daily papers
lost week, the report In the Oregon
Ian being aa follows;
"Tho Comptroller of tho Treasury
In an opinion rendered today, bolda
that no money may bo expended after
July 1, 1915. to tho construction of
Government Irrigation works other
than amounts specifically appropriat
ed by Congress and holding further
that all moneys allotted by Secretary
Lane and unexpended oa that dato
must automatically revert to tho rec
lamation fund. This ruling wllln ot
delay projects for which Congress
makes appropriations this session,
but tho ruling Is directly applicable
to tho proposed plan of eo-operatlon
between the State of Oregon and tho
Reclamation Service.
"Secretary Lane has held Informal
ly that If the state, prior to July 1.
should furnish 1450.000 to bo used
Jointly with a like amount, which ho
tentatively allotted for the co-operative
project, Ute amount no allot
ted by him would he available until
expended. The Oonsptroller holds to
the contrary and his decision Is final.
Therefore. If the atate and tbo Qov
ornmont como to a final agreement
before July 1 looking to co-operation
It will he necessary far Congress to
mako an appropriation tor that pur
poso to carry on the work after July
That this decision doea not brine
a. cncUtoithecouerat!va7planand
make It useless for Oregon to appro
priate Its share for tho work is shown
by the concluding paragraph of tbo
report to the effect that tho expected
congressional oppr o p r 1 a 1 1 o n will
probably bo so nuthorlxed that it may
be used either for an independent
government project or for co-operation.
For the Half .Mill Tax.
The effort to obtain through tbo
state legislature Oregon's share of a
co-operative fund hy n half mill Ux
aa urged by the recent Irrigation Coh
greM. Is to have the rapport ot the
Portland Commercial Club after all.
At a recent meeting of the board or
governors or the dub It waa resolved
that "in fuiailment ot the assurance
given In behalf of the club." a com
mittee of 10 he appointed to co
operate with the legislative commit
tee of the congress In its campaign
to secure action along the linen ot
the resolutions adopted by tho Con
gress. This aetton of the governor
has been very favorably received nnd
