Senator Chamberlain has a tentative
bill locking to the participation by the
government in the development of
power eites. He would have the gov
ernment do work very similar to the
work done by the reclamation service.
St Paul is to have a land show in
December, the dates being from the
12th to the 23d inclusive. The Chicago
how closes December 9. and those ex
hibiting at that place will have an op
portunity of going to St Paul. Oregon
will have a State exhibit and Lake
ounty should be represented.
President Taft has scored a "decisive
victory in the passage of the Canadian
reciprocity measure and has materially
stremthened himself with the thinking
tnassea of the people, according to
Frank Davey. of the Harney County
News. The insurgent republicans who
opposed the bill made a serious blunder
nd largely destrojed the prestige they
were in a fair way to establish when
the people thought they were actuated
by vital principles.
If it is true, as Secretary Fisher
ays. that Ryan's Controller Bay filings j
re subject to re ision and cancella- i
tion, what a smoke there has been from
a small fire, remarks the Oregonian.
Mr. Fi-her is a man whose word can- j
iot be doubted. He is a conservation
ist who out Pinchots Pinchot. and he is
fcmwn tie ccurtry over as an uneom-promisirg-
enemy of graft. If he says
there ii- -o danger the chances are
tieavy that there is none.
Although contributing four times
as much to the reclamation fund as is
.being expended within the state. Ore
gon is not to have any n"w reclamation
projects in the next four years, accord
ing to a statement made by Secretary
Fisher to Congressman Lafferty. when
he called to urge consideration of the
West Umatilla project. The Secretary !
said the work of the Reclamation Ser
vice for the rext fuui years was all
mapped oi:t to include the expenditure
of estimated receipts from all states,
and this program did not include
any new work in Oregon.
' Governor West last Friday wired the
forestry department. Washington, D.
C.. relative to the state's desire to tx
chance o ld ectiu:is of state land with
in the forest reserves for a solid thick I
of timber lar.il which may he converted
into a state, forest. This matter was
taken up with the government some
time ago, but the state was informed
then that there was no law authorizing
the exchange. Idaho has recently
secured such an exchange, and the
governor now hopes lo secure the
same for this state. Land in one Llock
i s considered much more desirable to
the state than scattering sections.
The statement which has been going
the rounds of the press to the effect
that seventy million acres of coal land
now withdrawn are to Le restored to
-entry as the result of the field investi
gations now being conducted by four
teen Geological Survey parties, is
branded by Director George Otis Smith
as grossly misleading, if nut absolutely
untrue. Director Smith calls atten
tion to t!. fact that this entire coal
land area belonging to the Government,
is in fact '.pen to full and free agricul
tural entry, the Government reserving
the coal lights only. Under the highly
important Mondell Act of June 22.

however valuable for coal, may be

coal land withdrawals and classifica
tions do not operate to retard the
iime-makir;g development of the West.
It is but a short time since a great
iiieand cry went up throughout the
country, and especially in the Middle
West, for a tariff commission. In due
course of time such a commission was
appointed by President Taft. and its
IS rut report will be submitted to Con
gress at the opening of its next session
in December. However the present
Congress is unwilling to await the re
port of the tariff commission, which
would no doubt enable it to act intelli
gently upon the question, but it must
Vipolitics and endeavor to put the
IVegident in a hole, as it were. Presi
dent Taft should and no doubt will veto
ndUi riff bills that may be passed at
the present session of Congress, and
Ike foaue will then be fairly presented
to tba people regardless of whether or
aiotthe bills are passed over his veto.

in an opinion handed down by the
Sunreme Court of Oregon recently the
famous escheat case of Oregon, re- I
pondent. against P.- A. McDonald,
administrator of the estate of John
Morrsion. deceased, waa affirmed, and
the decision of the Union County jury,
escheating the entire estate, valued
at f. TO. 000 to the state, was allowed
to stard. The evidence adduced before
trial jury waa to
the effect that the
couple were never married. There
were several other children by James
Morrison and Catherine France, and
these were the claimants in thia case,
having made a demand for Morrison's
fortune at the time of his death. The
opinion, which is written by Judge
Bean, construes the statutes of Oregon
to hold that the intestate, being an
illegitimate child could have no
brothei s or sisters who could inherit
his property. This cut off the claims
f the other children by James Morri-;
eon ana catnenne r ranee. uie
intestate was un arried and had no
descendants, and as his mother is dead
be has no heirs under the Oregon law
and the estate was declared escheated
to the state.

The West is likely to benefit largely
if the house of representatives passes j
the resolution offered ty Represents
tive Raker, of California, calling for
a thorough investigation into the work
ings of fhe present public land laws,
eays a Washington dispatch. The time
has come when many of the existing
laws have tutlivtd their useful
ness ; others by departmental regula
tions, have teen distorted so that they
do not actually mean what they were
intended to mean : and there are num
erous charges that some of the bureaus
are actually legislating by regulations
far in advance of what congress ever
intended. There has never been a
thorough official investigation to deter
mine what is the matter with our land
laws and their administration, but the
West is pretty well convinced that the
laws and regulations need a general
overhauling. If the house authorizes
anjr.u.uiry, and if that inquiry is both
thorough and intelligent, congress will
have before it next winter a fund of
information upon which it can base a
general revison of the land and forest
laws, and out of the present tangle the
national legislatrue ought to Le able
to devise a set of laws drawn to meet
present day conditions and present day
needs. There has been much eastern
opiiosition to revising the land laws,
for eastern men do not understand
what is the matter; they are content
to have the remaining public domain
"conserved" by having it withdrawn
so that no fraud will be possible. But
the West is crying out for develop
ment, and development can only come
when the land laws are revised and
revised practically and thoroughly.
The right kir.d of a concessional in
vestigation would do the West an enor
mous amount of good but if the investi
gation is restricted or not well directed,
it will result in no benefit. Much will
depend upon the men who conduct
the investigation, if to be authorized.
JIM JEFFRIES OUT
FOR ALASKA BEARS
Seattle. Aug. 2. James J. Jeffries,
formerly champion pugilist, and his
brother Jack, have engaged passage on
the steamship Jefferson, which will
sail for Alaska next Monday night.
They will hunt big game in South
eastern and Southwestern Alaska, until
they are driven out by the deep snows
of December. The brothers with their
rifles, will disembark hist at Wrangel
to try the bear hunting of that neigh
borhood. Later they will go to Skag
way and seek bear pelts in the White
After having Bated themselves on
the amaller bears they will sail from
Seward for Kodiak Island to try for a
shot at the great brown bears, which
weigh a ton, stand as high as a horse
and never flee from man. On the re
turn from Kodiak the season in the
Kenai i'eninsula will have opened and
the ex-pugilist will endeavor to get the
antlered he ado of some of the gigantic
moose that roam in the hills.

Woolgrower Are Opposed
To Tariff Action at
Eastern Oregon woolgrowera would
prefer nU to see the Lar'ollette wool
bill become a law and they will not
mourn if President i Taft vetoes that
bill, according to Dan P. Smythe. see-
retary of the state association.
I tn the view of Smythe, and also of
I other wind men, both among the grow
ers and the buyers, the La Follette bill
is not objectionable within itself. Hut
they do not believe the passage of the
bill would end the demand for a fur
ther reduction in the wool schedule.
They are afraid that the democrats
at the retrular session will demand a
still further reduction.
" Accordingly the woolgrowers share
President Taft's idea that
tion relating to the wool schedule
should be witheld until the tariff board
can make its report.
If this course is taken they say there
is hope that the matter of the tariff j
on wool may be adjusted "once and for
ail. so as 10 stop lunner Knuun.

BILL HAS PASSED
Washington, D. C. Aug. .'5. -The
senate this morning passed the houHe
reapportionment bill, which provides
for more congressmen from several
states. Two important amendments by
Burton of Ohio were adopted just be
fore passage. One provides that can
didates for congress may be nominated
in the same manner as candidates for
governor in the various states. The
other provides that the affected states
be redistricted by their legislatures, j
except v.here the initative and referen
dum is enforced. In such states these
laws may be invoked. As a result of
the vote by the senate, the member
ship of the next session of congre.-.s is
fixed at 433. The membership of the
present session is thirty-three less.
The reapportionment bill increases
the California delegation 1 : Oregon. 1 ;
and Washington 2. The largest in
crease is that of New York, whicii

Secretary of Stale Olcott said he waa
in favor of throwing the board meet
ings open to the press and publi"' here-
after ao taxpayers who had to stand I
the cost could have the opportunity of
hearing who were standing for their
interests and who against them, if any.
He said there might sometimes be a
necessity of executive sessions but
that the general run of the meeting
would be on.
The board was satisfied that the con
tention as set up by the representa
tives of the project were meritorious.
They made the showing that move
ments are on foot to finance the work
and that there is every reason to be
lieve they can make good with the
work and establish by the ilrst of the
year a showing which will be satisfac
tory to the board in every respect.
"Memlicrs of the board have ack
nowledged that we have one of the
finest projects in the slate." aaid Mr.
McC'usker in commenting on the latest
action. "The temperature there is
except lonally good. Summer Lake is
fed Lv Anna River, which in turn is
fed by not springs 1000 feet deep.
There is'an evaporation of four feet

no outlet. The evaporal ion of this

withoutany frosts and a climate thai
"In the past there have been difficul
ties with water rights on the Chewau
can River, from where we will secure
our water. Decisions of the courts
have shown us where undoubtedly, we

all others. In the past one of our
greatest difficulties has been in finan
cing the project, owing tn the
trouble over the water rights. But
with this difficulty out of the way we
are assured of ample backing."
The project of the Portland Irriga
tion Company includes lli.Oon ucres of
exceedingly rich land which is parti
cularly adapted to fruit raising, say
members of the State Board, who
visited it recently. Other crops will
thrive there as well, and there are
many crops that grow in the bottom
land at present without the aid of
irrigation. Labi week the Slate Board
cancelled the Portland Irrigation Com
pany's contract because of lack of
work done by that company.
