co-operative irrigation association
of Oregon asking that a thorough inves
tigation be made by the reclamation
service to determine the irrigation pos

It happens that representatives of
the reclamation service have made ex
tensive investigations in Crook county,
and reached the conclusion that there
is no present opportunity for the gov
ernment to enter this field. There are
several attractive irrigation projects
along the Deschutes river, but all of
these are now covered by segregations
made by the state of Oregon under the
Carey act, and the government does not
desire to interfere with the plans of
The only other water available for
irrigation in Crook countr is the
Crooked' river, and the summer flow
of this stream is now fully utilized.
As it would be very expensive to divert
water of the Deschutes across the
Crook river valley onto the distant
arable lands, the government has de
cided it can do nothing in Crook county
unless private enterprises under the
Carey act are abandoned.
SPECIAL STAMP FOR '05 FAIR.
Paris, April 25. The Associated
Press is authorized to announce that
the contract by which the Panama
canal passes to the United States is
signed and sealed. The title to the
canal is now vested in the United
States. The document by which this
transaction is consumated bears the
signatures of President Bo and Director
Richman, of the Panama canal com
pany, ho signed for the company as
its responsible officers. The transfer is
complete and without reservation, and

plished, and unexpectedly, as the public
has been given to understand that the
contract would not be executed until
after the meeting of the stockholders of
the Panama canal company tomorrow,
at which the question of ratification
would be presented. As a matter of
fact, however, when the meeting takes
place President Bo will announce that
the sale has been completed, and, in
stead of asking for authority to execute
a contract, it will only remain to ratify
the contract of sale which the officers
of the company have formally com
pleted. Only a few of the highest offi

Senate Committee Object to Hltt BUI
Washington, April 23. The general
deficiency bill reported by the senate
committee on appropriations carries
$11,343,146, an increase aa It passed
the house of $940,525. It contains as
an amendment the Hitt Chinese exclu
sion bill, which was accepted by the
house before the bill was passed. The
Hitt bill was introduced In the senate
by Penrose and referred to the commit
tee on foreign relations. In this com
mittee the discovery, it is said, has
been made that the bill will affect the
introduction of Chinese coolie labor In
to the Panama canal zone, and to a
considerable extent affect the immigra
tion to this country of Coreans and Fil
ipinos and the deportation from the
United States, Hawaii, Porto Rico and
any teuitorvy, "subject to the jurisdic
tion of the United States of any person
held to come within the definition of
the words "Chinese persons," and ob
jection has been made to the far reach
ing effects of the bill.
When the senate committee on for
eign relations began consldertion today
of the Chinese bill It wus suggested
that the bill might be of wider scope
than was at first thought. Sections
defining the words "Chinese person"
were called, to notice, and it was sug
gested that theBe might be held to re
late to Filipinos, Corenns and others
not intended to be included, and that
the purpose of the bill might bo in con
flict with the existing treaties. It was
late when the. discovery was mado, and
finally the members of the committee
concluded that no action should be
taken on the Penrose bill in view of
the fact that the Hitt amendment was
reported in the deficiency bill, but that
the matter might be discussed in open
senate. It is understood an attempt
will be made to amend the measure be
fore the deficiency bill passes the

RUSSIA ISSUES PAPER MONEY.
Postal Department Is Expected to Au
. tborlze the Issue Soon.
Washington, April 26. At the sug
gestion of Senator Mitchell, the post-
office department has taken up the mat
ter of preparing a special issue of post
age stamps tc commemorate the Lewis
and Clark centennial. The department
can issue such stamps without special
authority of congress, and in view of
the department's attitude on the tc
casion of other expositions, it is expect
ed that the postmaster general will
soon authorize a special Lewis and
Senator Mitchell has also requested
the department to supply the Portland
postoffice with a special cancelling
stamp bearing some such words as
"Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposi
tion, 1905, Portland, Oregon," or
"World's Fair, Portland, Oregon,
This suggestion has been taken under
advisement. Senator Mitchell believes
the stamp issue and the special cancel
lation stamps will be an excellent
means of advertising the exposition.
Will Oet Boats Ordered by Germany
New York, April 20. Home sensa
tion has been caused in Berlin, says
Herald dispatch, by a rumor to the
effect that Germany has ceded to Rus
sia certain torpedo boats building in
private yards, which are on the point
of completion. Eight of these, which
are being built by the Schichau yards
are the largest torpedo boats as yet
constructed in Germany, being 550
tons, with an average speed of 28. In
order to prevent a breach of neutrality
it would be necessary that the German
government annul its contract.
Finance Minister Says It la Not Forced,
and No Loan Is Desired.
St. Petersburg, April 25. Russia has
made a new issue of $15,000,000 in
paper currency against free gold in the
State bank. At the ministry of finance
it was explained that it was an ordin
ary issue, and in no sense was forced.
Under the law paper is issuable to dou
ble the amount of gold up to $160,000,-
000 gold, in excess of which paper is
sued must be covered rouble for rouble.
In the State bank there are, in round
figures, $400,000,000 in gold, which
would permit of an issue of $550,000,
000 in paper, but the paper issue at
present only amounts to $350,000,000.
All sorts of figures of the cost of the
war are printed abroad. The corres
pondent of the Associated Press is au
thoritatively informed that the daily
expenses are averaging $750,000, and it
s estimated that a years expenditure
for the war will total $250,000,000.
To meet this there existed a free bal-
nee of $50,000,000 by reductions in
the ordinary budgets, leaving ostensibly
135,000,000. But a portion of the
latter is made up by the increased earn
ings of the railroads owned by the gov
ernment. It being in reality a ques
tion of bookkeeping, how the balance

Exhibit for the I90S Fair.
Denver, Colo., April 26 That the
Colorado exhibit will ' be transferred

Mclsaac that he would exert every
means in his power to accomplish this
and said he believed the centennial
state was also to furnish sufficient funds
in its next budget to provide for the
erection of a building.

Astoria The county court has grant-
ad the petition of C. C. Clarke, the
Seaside logger, to lease the portion of

Extent of Disasters to Her Arms
not Be Sent Out.
Paris, April 22. The Yinkow corres
pondent of the Paris Journal says he
has tried repeatedly to ascertain the ex
tent of the recent disasters to the Rus
sian arms, and lie lias lailed to do so
because of the perfect lv -organized sec
recy of the Russians. In his conclud
ing statement, he says:
"The people of France will be
obliged to be satisfied with notices
marked 'official' or semi-official state
ments sent from. Harbin or Mukden
many miles removed from the actual
scene of war. I am close to Port
Arthur, and might give the true ver
sion of many incidents, the news of
which, as published, 'has heen mere
conjecture, but the Russians strictly
forbid all communications of land or
sea events. At the moment of sending
this message, grave happenings are pro
ceeding on the peninsula; in fact, I am
told that another battle is lieing fierce

Orand Roads Drive Starts.
La Grande The logs on the Grand
Ronde river at Perry have begun to
move. The monster drive lias started
from the headwaters of the stream to
ward the mills at Perry. The Grand
Ronde Lumber company will drive
about 16,000,000 feet of logs thi
spring. It will become necessary to
build railroads to the vast belts of pine
lying on the head of the Grand Ronde
river and Meadow creek, as it will he
too costly and tedious to haul the log
to the river and depend on the annual
drive to supply the mills.
Boltlsh Sympathy Much Appreciated.
St. Petersburg, April 23. While ac
cepting gratefully the world-wide ex
pressions of sympathy which Russia
has received at the death of Vice Ad
miral Makaroff and the Petropavlovsk
disaster, the papers seem especially im
pressed with the sympathy shown by
the British press, several using the text
to argue on the opportuneness of the
decision in favor of a Russo-British
treaty. The Novisky says: "A sin
cere approachment with Great Britain
would guarantee our future development"
Will Be Under Martial Law.
Niu Chwang, April 25. Viceroy
Alexieff has issued an important order
declaring the Yin Kow railroad station
and the native village adjoining it to

Hospital for Chemawa School.
Salem Congressan Binger Hermann

will he of brick, and will cost $15,000
will be loctaed on the east side of tl
Southern Pacific track, and north

STOCK LOSSES REDUCED.
Warmer Weather Averted the Dangera
Threatening the Herds.
Pendleton Stork reports from south
ern Umatilla and Grant counties show
conditions much improved since the-
heavy snowstorm of two weeks ago, and
stock losses, which threatened for a
short time to materially thin out the-
herds, have been to a great degree
averted. In valleys, where it was pos
sible, range stock was gotten out to
where grass could be found, while-
enough feed was on hand for domestic-cattle.
In valleys where stock could not b
gotten out to better locations, cattle
and sheep went on short rations for
some time, but escaped after nominal
loss, as warmer weather came. Night
were not severe after the storm, a con
dition which also greatly helped. Sev
eral thousand head of sheep and cattle-
perished, but the loss was probably not
over one or two per cent above nominal.
Stack Escaped Severe Season.
Athena Foothill stockmen east and
southeast of here have not sustained
nearly as severe stock losses as waa
feared three weeks ago, when a sudden
heavy snowfall with severe weather
when feed was shout run out, caused
apprehension that hundreds of good
cattle would be lost. Snow is now out
of the lower hills sufficiently to allow
grazing, and no more will probably die.
Aa it was, it is said 200 or 300 bfad,
principally old ca'ttle or those In poorer
condition, will cover the loss in th
