Why doesn't Mr. Finloy say in his
propaganda stories that a big portion
of the state of Oregon has never been
developed, bltt left to tho wild ani
mals and birds, but that now since
there Is a domand for greater produc
tion, and peoplo re realizing the
necessity of Irrigation and more in
tensive agriculture, It has boon found
necessary to change the nature of
things. That it Is unforttinnto if It
disturbs the wild life of tlio country
but thu comfort and proper nourish
ing, raising of children to became
good cltlr.ons Is so vast Importance
that it must be done. People can't
dovete this big area to wild life 'when
suffering humanity iu calling for
morn food. That in the case of
Harney county, at least, it Is net
going to Interfere 'materially with
the bird reservation, an there are
existing rights on the borders of the
reserre that must be respected, be
sides the Impounding' of the water
of the streams will not destroy It as
a nesting place.
It Is unfortunate that Mr. Flnley
failed to keep his appointment with
the Burns Commercial club when he
was, here last summer. The people
asked him to meet with them and
dlseue the bird reserve hut he failed
to Mceme across" leaving some fifty
men waiting for him fer a couple ef
hours. If he really wants to tee fak
andjido the right thing he will give
