WILLIAM L. HNLbY again
dominates the state's control
of its iM life. The scientist suc
ceeds the politically inclineJ bus
iness man in administering the
fish and game commission
The chane will bitterly disap
point trc members of the many
rod and gun clubs the so-called
organized sportsmen that were a
political adjunct of the commis
sion under the Burghduff tenure.
But the removal of the three game
commission employees was inev
itable if not actually desirable un
der the circumstances. The pres
ence of Mr. Finley on the commis
ison created an impossible situa
tion as far as Burghduff Jones
Ryckman were concerned. Their
viewpoints are so dissimilar, their
ideas of the proper functions of
state regulation of hunting and
fishing are so far apart, even their
conceptions of the purpose of wild
life conservation are so divergent,
as to make their association on
the fish and game commission in
tolerable. Finley went in so Cap
tain A. E. Burghduff had to get
A difference in viewpoint which
has engendered personal animos
ity again has split the state's fish
and game policy. Finley is the
ultra conservationist, the scientist,
the student of the habits of wild
game, the hunter who prefers to
hunt with a camera rather than
with a rifle. To him a proper ap-
preciation and knowledge of wild
life by school children is more to
be desired than the creation of an
instantly responsive political or
ganization. Finley is the technical
biologist. Burghduff sought quan
tity production of fry and game
for the enjoyment of the sports
irn. The efforts of the Burgh-duff-controlled
fish and game com
mission to popularize game life
through a study of its habits and
means of protection, fell flat. Fin
ley has the show man's instinct
that the commission, before Fin
ley as appointed to it, lacked.
The appointment of William L.
Finley and his domination of the
fish and game commission, adds
confusion to the administration of
that body. As now constituted it
will not have the support of many
thousands of those whose license
fees now finance its activities.
The sportsmen are jealous of the
state's control of shooting grounds.
Finley advocates, so far futilely
but nevertheless energetically,
federal control of such areas.
More trouble and bitter contro
versy is certain to result if the
commission, as now constituted,
attempts to alter the negative
expression of the last legislature
towards the establishment of fed
eral preserves. To what extent
the future activity of the commis
sion will be handicapped by the
lack of support accorded it by or
ganizations of sportsmen is, of
course, problematical. The point
is that the complete change in the
comission's policy that will no
doubt occur now that Mr. Finley is
a member, will not tend to pacify
the political vortex into which the
state's control of fish and game
has been drawn. The sports- i
men who pay the bill for fish and
game propagation cannot be eas
ily denied their privilege of seek
ing a full representation of their
views on their commission.

AMONG a number of promin
Chi men over the state being
ucnti' tied as probable candidates
for ti.e senatorial toga now held
I v Pnbert N. Stanfield, is Fred
erick W. Steiwer, attorney of Pen
iMeion. Mr. Steiwer does not seem
to br in an altogether receptive
mol yet he may be prevailed up
on by his many friends from over
the suie to get into the primaries,
and it is to be hoped that he may.
Mr. Skiver is a young man, well
equ.ped for the position and
would make Oregon a real sena
tor ai Washington, possessing fine
tahiiis and unquestioned ability.
Coming from pioneer stock, he is
well known over the state, and
this paper would like to see him
gel into the running.

roads, and is emancipated. Ore
Not entirely, brother, not en
tirely. We have an ideal highway
service into Portland and no one
objects, but the state's problem
is not yet solved. There are re
gional roads and connecting roads
of the greatest importance that
have not yet been built. We have
some of them in this territory. The
manner in which they have been
neglected is shameful.
Ine apparent purpose of the
highway bureau thus far has been
to get traffic into Portland. That
policy should be broadened and
the time is at hand to do so. We
want our tourists to see the state
and not merely rush through it.
It is time to do something for our
regional and connecting roads.
I'p to this time they have been
given the cold shoulder utterly
while millions on millions have
been expended in paving and then
repaving tourist roads.
Why not do something for our
State Should Settle
WE CANNOT help thinking
Governors Pierce and Hart
ley wrong in their attitude toward
state settlement of government ir
rigation projects. There is no
reason under the sun why the
state should not assume the re
sponsibility for settlement of the,-e
projects and supervise the work.
It is certain that the ta'e is far
better able to select the kind of
settlers who have the best possi
ble chance to succeed, settlers
who know what to do and how to
do it. The failure of government
supervision of settlement has
been admitted and the reason for
that failure has been due to un
wise selection of settlers who
knew little or nothing of irriga
tion methods and less than noth-
mS of the adaptation of the land
lof the irrigated section to profit
able crops. Every reclamation
failure in this country can be
traced to these causes. Long years
of experimentation at high cost
has ruined and discouraged the
settler and bankrupted the pro
ject. All this could be avoided by
proper supervision of settlement
and careful selection of farmers
who have had experience in rais
ing the kind of crops best adapted
to the irrigated tract. This can
be done best by the state in co
operation with men who are work
ing similar projects near by. The
talk of economy and tax reduction
is not pertinent. Economy is not
a question of how much money is

money is spent and" for what. The
talk of economy in matters of this
kind is a false note and should
make no impression on people
who are for the upbuilding of the
Pacific Northwest. To evoke this
much overworked political thun
der against so worthy an enter
prise as the reclamation of mil
lions of acres of otherwise worth
less land is a questionable prac
tice to say the least, and hardly
has the ring of sincerity. It is to
be hoped that the good people of
Oregon and Washington will see
the wisdom and economy in co
operating with the federal gov
ernment in large undertakings of
this kind from which the state re
ceives inestimable benefit and
profit. We can not expect Eastern
states to assume fcqual responsi
bility for Western development.
