Conference is For
Control by States
Recdt Walr Fewer Cssfereiee is
ftei t Federal RepUtiM
Resolutions declaring' for state con
trol of water-power resources and de
velopment, and voicing opposition to
any poliyc looking toward a system
of leading generally of the public do
main, were adopted In the Western
States Water Power conference held
in Portland last week. tv
Tho resolutions call on Congress to
pass a declaratory act rjecognizing
that the proprietary interest of the
United States to the vacant land with
in the states is subject to the juris
diction and eminent domain of those
Dtates, for all uses declared by their
laws to bo public uses
Clyde C. Dawson, of Donvor, head
of tho Colorado delegation, presented
the resolutions as adopted, with some
minor changes. Tho other resolutions
embodying the principlo of Federal
control In tho Ferris bill, were intro
duced by Thomas J. Walsh, United
States Senator from Montana
Of the four United States Senators
attending the conference two favor
the principle of state control of water
power resources and two stand for
The two advocates of stato control
are Senators Smoot, of Utah, and
Clark of Wyoming. AS the
only member of the Wyoming dele
gation he was made that state's re
presentative on the resolution com
mittee. The two advocates of Federal 'con
trol are Senator Chamberlain of Ore
gon, and Senator Walsh t Montana,
both Democrats and strong support
ers of tho present Administration,
which has fathered tho Ferris bill.
On the other hand A. E. Chandler
chairman, of tho California Water
Commission and as tho only delegate
of that state ot tho conference, lined
up with the Federal control forces.
A minority report on the resolution
was defeated by tho following vote:

RAILROADS AND RIVERS

The Now Orleans States says that
just as the railroads drove boats from
the Mississippi so they drovo them
from the Red river. The States says:'
Tho railroads originally wero able
to destroy river traffic because tho
former made rates to suit their own
sweet will, lowering them until they
drove the boats from the rivers and
then raising them as high as they
pleased. But with ample power in
tho hands of the stato railroad com
mission to curb tho railroads in any
way they can soon make luirmless
any attempt to put rates down merely
to crush a competing water service
Whether a barge lino between Shrevo
port and New Orleans can be made
a permanent affair rests entirely with
those who ship tho freight.
If benefits of tho cheuper haul arc
to be realized, tho cheaper haul Viust
be used. The rule holds between rail
roads and rivers just as it holds be
tween improved and unimproved high
ways. Thero is something in tho Louis
iana situation for those who ship the
Columbia basin's freight to think n
bout. Tho timo was when a railroad
through ownership of a boat line,
kept river competition at a minimum
But tho IntorxtnUf Commerce Com
mission freed the river of ruilroud
domination. It is now open nnd
ready for service ns a freight carrier,
But tho Columbia and its nuvigu

were advocates of fair play.
"You Jcln tell Osborne," replied Mul

Recognizing that a great purpose
of the school of commerce vt the Uni
versity of 'Oregon is to help build up
trade relations for the state, the Uni
varsity is taking, inital steps toward
nn exchange of professors with one
or more universities of South Ameri
ca. The man sent from the University
to South America must be well post
ed on the products the nbrthwest can
and should be exchnncinc in trrf
.vith the southern republics. He is
to impart his knowledge to the stud
ents at the university to which he is
accredited and in addition is to teach
j course in business English. In re
turn the University expects to re
ceive a professor conversant with the
trade conditions of his republic, which
he will make familiar to the students
here Jiesides teaching them a super
ior course in business Spanish.
Each visiting professor will study
the needs and prospective trade re
lations together with the banking me
thods of tho country to which he is
sent nnd on return will be able to re
veal to the home students trade pos
sibilities from a native standpoint
The expense of the exchange will
be little mora than tho cost of trans
portation. The South American will be asked
to advise the Portland commercial
clubs bureau of trade with regard to
the territory from which he comes.
Likewise the man sent from here will
be instructed to get detailed statis-
tics on the factories, canneries, meat

SUGAR BEET PROSPECTS
Of special inerest to Oregon farm
ers who contemplate embarking In
sugarbcet production is tho statement
of Clifford Willis, editor of the North
west Farmstead, that the outlook for
homo producers is more encouraging
than ever before. This is due Mr,
Willis thinks, to the fact that exper
ience has bettered cultural methods,
than ever before, and that the market
i3 influenced by war conditions more
nearly to approach the normal under
favorable tariff regulations. Produc
tion in many districts hns nlso greatly
increased and , many of the largest
manufacturers of best sugar report
that they have contracts to their full
capacity and have been forced to turn
down scores of applications for fur
nishing raw products. He is greatly
impressed with the favorable sugar
beet conditions of the Willamette Val
ley. Mr. Willis is the successor to
