Mr. Finloy points out Hint within' Hi m'n vniiM Malbutir laku reserve will bo destroyed unless stops oro taken to provont it. Ho doesn't nay ao in plain words, but Indirectly accuses the ipeoplo of tho localities spoken of as wantonly destroying the bird life Just for pure eussednosH. Ilu dosen't say what has been done with the water dyked off from Loor Klamath Marsh: ho doesn't say that it has been used to reclaim fertile acres that are producing for tho bene fit or mankind, he Intimates that the cltUens of Harney county aro delib erately planning the destruction of the Malheur bird reservation for no earthly reason but Just to destroy it.

One would infer from reading Mr. Fin- ley's artlelo that local people wero responsible. 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 the(.facts as they are. He will never, be able to "put anything over" so he mlfcmt Just as well tell the people ef the state in his Illustrated stories' la thwblg rtaljy .Porsjwhat la contem plated by. the people 'of the' Interior of Oregon and what the water lev to be used for and how. tj road and therefore must ha,ve (he beat material.
