Reclamation Service Finds Large
Sum to Its Credit For Irri
gation of Arid West.
MENTlf-FIVt MILLION DOLLARS
From the annual report of the An
ditor of the Interior Department we j
glean the following facts relative to
the reclamation service In the sixteen
pnblic land states and territories of
The proceeds of the sales of public
lands In these states beginning Julj
1, 1SW1, were appropriated by the act
ol J uue 17, l'J02, for the construction
and maintenance, under thedlrection
of the secretary of the interior, of Ir
rigation works or the reclamation
of arid lauds in said states and terri
tories. The fund accumulated under this
act and set apart In the treasury as
a reclamation fund for the three fis
cal years ended June 30, 11)03, amount
ed to f 16,4,3:!9D4. The amount re
alized for the fiscal year ended June
30, 1M, lias not yet been definitely
ascertained, but It is know that this
sum will Increase the fund approxi
mately to fii.lKW.OtK). The secretary
of the Interior Is conducting the op
erations necessary to the accomplish
ment of the purposes for which this
large and Increasing fund Is appro
priated, through the officers of the
United States Geological Survey.
The accounts of many geueral and
fpeclal disbursing officers connected
with this service, and claims arising
under contracts for the construction
of canals, reservoirs, tunnels, dams,
aud various other works necessary
to the prosecution of an undertaking
of such magnitude, are settled here.
The settlement of these claims aud
accounts present many new questions
for consideration and results In a
material Increase in the amount of
work performed in this office.
The total number of disbursing
agents In the Interior Department
whose accounts were examined and
settled during the year is 400, of
which 208 were the Indian service, 18
were pension agents, 144 were In the
public land service and 30 were mis
cellaneous. Oregon's share of the fund appro
priated for reclamation purposes Is
approximately f 4.000.000.
Destroyed Public Property.
J. P. Duke was up town Monday
and Informed us that some miscreant
bad destroyed the government gaug
ing aparatus anchored out in tbe
lake for tbe purpose of obtaining tbe
evaporation of tbe lake. Mr. Duke
was appointed by 8. G. Bennett of
tbe Geological Survey to make these
observations and be attended to it
every Saturday. Wheu be went to
take observations last Saturday be
found that some one bad taken tbe
aparatu from Its wooden frame,
which is firmly anchored in tho lake,
leaving the frame. It will be reiiflein
bered a few weeks ago notices were
published In both tbe papers here,
warning parties against mole4tlng
tbe boat left at tbe lake for use lu
making evaporation records, owned
by the Government, and calling at
tention to tbe law providing for a
flue of f-'X) for the molestation of
public property and a reward of 125
for tbe luforraant.
Tbe party who destroyed the evap
orating pan would do well to lay
pretty low, as the government Is
none too lenient with perpetrators
of such crimp.

Was Not Accepted.
Rev. D. T. Summervilie former pre
siding Elder of this district, was ap
pointed by the Oregon Methodist
Conference to fill the Albany pulpit,
but the Methodist church at Albany
lelng owned solely by the local con
gregation It Is their right to reject
any minister appointed by the con-
j ference, and they have rejected Rev.
! SSttm ffikj.rt-tll..
The Methodists at Albany wanted
either Rev. Heppe, who had promised
to go to the Albany Methodist
churc h at Portland, or Rev. J. W.
McDougall of Grants Puss, who did
not desire to leave his charge.
The action tak-n by the Albany
church Is not due to any personal
objection to Mr. Summervilie other
than his extreme age.
