Washington, Nov. 14.— While the air
in full of talk about graft, Secretary
Wilson, of the department of Agricul
ture, is going ahead quietly puncturing
one form of graft that is imposed upon
the farmers cf the country— that oper
ated by the fraudulent seed men. Un
der a special act of congress Mr. W il
son’s department makes an examina
tion and analysis of seed sent in by
farmers who are suspicious that dealers
are selling them adulterated goods. As
a result of investigations
made, the Agricultural department has
issued a warning to farmers agonist
buying red clover or alfalfa seed from
a number of dealers who have been
found disposing of adulterated seed.
The dealers named on the Tiet are:
W. W. Rawson & Co., Boston; Ross
Bros., Worcester. Mass.; W. I I . Small
& Co., Evansville, Ind.; The W . E.
Barrett Company, Providence, R. I.;
Barteldes & Co., Denver, Colo; Cross-

The names of these dealers are pub

reality they are blacklisted. This note
is a warning to farmers who are in the
market for red clover or alfalfa seed.

Representative Burton, of Ohio, chair
man of the river and harbor committee,
before he left Washington for Hot
Springs, Va., for a short vacation.
There are two cogent reasons for not
enacting such legislation next winter,
according to Representative Burton—
first, because a large bill passed last
session carried appropriations for all
projects deserving of immediate atten
tion from congress; second, the neces
sity of holding down appropriations to
the low set figure to prevent, if possible,
another deficit in the treasury.

Washington, Nov. 13.— Following
close upon Secretary Taft’s refusal to
recommend an appropriation for con
tinuing the improvement of the mouth
of the Columbia river comes Secretary
Hitchcock’s refusal to approve the
Umatilla irrigation project in Oregon,
and the Okanogan an l Tietan projects,
in Wahhington, ali of which have been
pronounced feasible by the reclamation
engineers, and all of which were re
cently submitted to Mr. Hitchcock for
bis approval. Lack of funds is given
as his reason for turning down all three
Mr. Hitchcock f in is that he has al
lotted all the money *n the reclamation
fund and about $3/)00,000 in excess.
He concludes that it is time to check
these allotments, and is determined to
accumulate a surplur before more work
He therefore intends
to bold back on new prt j *cts until July
1, at which time, it is estimated, there
will he a surplus on hand of about $3,-
000,000. Mr. Hitchcock finds nothing
wrong with the engineering features of
these projects, but h3 is entering upon
a new’ policy of distributing money out
of the reclamation fund, and his reform
is put in force just at the time when
Oregon and Washington were in line
Another thing that develops in con
nection with the refusal to approve the
Umatilla, Okanogan and Tietan projects
is the determination of the secretary to
hereafter confine allotments of reclama
tion funds to 61 per cent of the amount
contributed by the various states and
territories. It is unfortunate for Ore
gon and Washington that this rule is
adopted at this late day, but, if it be
lived up to strictly, the secretary
should at once expend $2.500,000 in
Oregon and more than $1,500,000 in
Washington. As a matter of fact, not
a dollar of the reclamation fund has
been expended on any irrigation work
in Washington, and the only benefit
Oregon seems likely to receive for some
time is her share of the $1,000,000
which has been set aside for Klamath.
