NEWS OF THE STATE
House Conferees Want Matter Delayed Until
New Survey is Made.
Washington, April 21. There are
renewed indications that a strong fight
will be made in the conference com
mittee against the amendment to the
river and harbor bill authorizing the
construction of a canal at The Dalles
and Celilo, provided the senate accepts
the amendment made by the commit
tee. The house conferees, and in fact
practically the whole house committee,
entertain the belief that this canal can
be built for much less than the esti
mate of Captain Harts, and they assert
that they do not want to undertake the
work until they know what it is going
to cost. At the same time.there is a
reeling among tne friends of the canal
that this excuse is merely superficial ;
and that the committee in fact does not
want to authorize the construction of a
canal, nerely putting forward the new
survey proposition as a mean of delay.
