Judge Denny was in the city Monday
and favored The Reporter with a call.
The judge feels that he has been placed
in a false light in reference to his attitude
toward the improvement of the Yamhill
river, it having been alleged that he had
filed a protest against the location of the
dam and locks on his place and threaten
ing to mulct the government for damages.
He says that he has made no protest, but
on the contrary is in favor of the proposed
improvement and that he offered to do
nate the land necessary for the purpose.
What he did do, be says, was to write a
letter to General Alger apprising the
government of certaiu facte in connection
with the construction of the works. If
located at the point he supposed they
would be, unless care was observed to
prevent it, overflow of his land would
result, and he notified Gen. Alger that
the government would be held responsi
ble for any damages. Hie object, he ex
plains, was to prevent such a contin
gency by having the works properly con
structed. We are bound to take Judge
Denny at his word, but it is becoming
more and more evident as the dilly-dally
ing with this business progresses, that
there is a nigger in the woodpile, and
that some powerful agency is at work to
prevent the carrying out of the project
for which appropriations were secured
some months agq. The question is, who
are the people interested, and who are
their agents? Our people are beginning
to have a pretty clear idea about it.
