and pow er plant, a good claim to con
siderable government aid can be seL
up. The dam could properly be con
structed by the government, for
either navigation purposes under
river and harbor appropriation or tc
store water for irrigation by the a
lamation bureau, while a license t
develop power at the dam could be
granted by the federal waterpower
commission either to the cities and
organized irrigation districts inter
ested or to a private corporation. The
latter would be required to operate
locks free of cost to the government
but the commission may recommend
to congress that the government par
ticipate in the cost of construction.
Provision is also made for construe
tion of any project by the United
In view of the benefits to accrue
both to navigation and irrigation,
congress could properly be asked to
appropriate both river and harbor
funds and reclamation funds. Ore
gon has a good moral claim, for it
has contributed over $6,500,000 more
than it has received, while some
states have received several times
the sums they contributed. The Wa
terpower commission is authorized to
make preliminary investigations of
anv region or any project and "to co
operate with the executive depart
ments and other agencies of state or
national governments" in so doing.
It has not been given funds for such
work, and congress should be urged
to provide them at this session.
While the estimated cost, $25,000,
0X), seems great, it should not prove
out or proportion to the threefold
benefits which would result. It might
not be justified for either navigation
or irrigation or power alone, but.
when apportioned among all three, n
might be financially practicable.
Umatilla rapids is the highest of
three great power sites on the middle
Columbia and is the least costly to
develop. That at Bonneville would
give 200,000 and that at The Dalles
4S0.OO0 continuous horsepower, but
ea:h would cost two or three times as
much as the Umatilla dam. Success
of the latter might be expected to at
tract capital to undertake the two
larger projects. When they were
completed, deep water with a slow
current would extent as far up the
river as Priest rapids. As a project
to erect a power plant at that point is
being financed, the navigable channel
would soon extend beyond Wenat
chee. A good begining is needed to de
velop the immense power, naviga
tion and irrigation possibilities of the
Columbia river, and the enterprising
people of the Umatilla district have
the qualities to make it. They should
have coperation of the states of
Oregon and Washington and of the
