WASHINGTON, D. C, Dec. 22.
Although the secretary of the In
terior believes that it will be a wise
and beneficent thing to reclaim the
swamp lands of Klamath Lake and
that region, he does not see how the
reclamation service can undertake
that work without -legislative auth
ority being specifically given and un
til funds for such a project are in
This expression of opinion was ob
tained from Secretary Lane by Sena
tor McNary and was forwarded by
him to J. H. Carnahan, president of
Klamath Post No. 8 of the American
Legion. Carnahan has been urging
that the swamp lands should be op
ened up tor settlement to the sol
diers and sailors ot the late war, Ir
respective ot whether they are re
claimed or not, contending that the
settlers can themselves unite and
drain the land tor agricultural de
velopment. To this A. P. Davis, director of
the United States reclamation serv
ice, replied that the plan is not feas
ible as It takes years and a good deal
ot capital to dike the lands and it is
not likely that soldier and sailor
settlers would be In a financial posi
tion to undertake that work. At pre
sent he says the lands are suitable

Land Settlement Is Vital Feature of
Next Year's Development Cam
paign, Says Secretary In' His JPIrsc
Annual Report to Directors
Land settlement Is the major ac
tivity to which the Oregon state
chamber of commerce should devoto
its energies during the coming year,
says George Quayle, general secre
tary In his first annual report, which,
will be presented to the organization
at their meeting In Portland, Decem
ber 29, 30, 31.
This, he says,, was the main prob
lem on which the directors centered
their work during the last year, but,
while the idea has been kept in the
foreground and greatest activities
have been along the lines of secur
ing settlers for farm lands, many
other large questions ot importance
have come before the organization.
A detlnlte program for 1920 Is
suggested In the report along the fol
lowing general lines:
Roosevelt Highway Naval Baser
Right now more than at any
time in the past immediate action
of the citizens of Oregon is urged in
securing appropriation trom Con
gress toward construction ot the
Roosevelt Highway to protect our
coast line, and the early establish
ment ot the naval base at the mouth
ot the Columbia River. Even though
the present attitude ot Mexico may
not bring about serious trouble Im
mediately, torces are at work that
will ultimately require this highway
nnd base to Insure our safety.
National Forest Reads: Secure
cooperation of eKort rrom the -Western
states In an appeal to Congress
tor an appropriation ot say, one hun
dred million dollars ror building
roads through National Forests, the
amount to extend over a term ot
ten years.
Reclamation Fund: Persistent
effort should be made to secure
trom the Federal Government at
least as much money as has been
paid into the Federal Government
by the State or Oregon under the Re
clamation Act and has been diverted
trom this state to other states. The
total ot this rund now being $6,500,
000. Advocate that we get solidly back
of the movement for a substantial
recommendation for reclamation and
urge all possible effort in behalf of
the Soldier's Land Settlement bill
before Congress.
Railreads: Special effort should
be put forth in an endeavor to have
the Natron cut-otf completed, which
will connect the country of Klamath
and Lake Counties with Willamette
Give such assistance as Is possible
toward the early construction ot the
Strahorn System ot railroads thru
Central and Eastern Oregon.
The construction of the Natron
cut-off and the Strahorn roads will
be the means of connecting Eastern
and Western Oregon; undertakings
well worthy or the best efforts of
the State Chamber.
State Guarantee: Suggest a bill
be presented to the Legislature in
which tho State of Oregon will guar
antee principal and interest for a
given time on bonds issued under
proper restriction for irrigation and
drainage projects and reclamation
of cut-over or logged-off land in the
Stnto Bonding Measure: Recom
mend Stnto Chamber go on record
ns favoring leglslntion authorizing
the Stnto to issue bonds for roads
In an amount not to exceed 4 per
cent instead of 2 per cent limitation
under the present law.
Advertising: Suggest an oxton
sivo advertising campaign for estab
lishment of settlors on land In Ore
gon, An appeal to the tourists should
bo made through a personal repre
sentative to be sent through the Eas
tern nnd Middle Western stntos in
order to get In personal touch with
tho tourists coming West provid
ing funds are obtainable.
