Senator Chamberlain aald In part:
"8crloua questions will bo raised

ters of the lake will flood valuable
landa belonging to the United Statea
government, amounting to ten or fif

Interference with their righta.
The .moat aerious question, to my
mind, la the taking of water from the
lake, after construction of the dam,
past Oregon landa that are Involve
In the original reclamation acheme
and the Inability of the government
thereafter to use any portion of these
water for Irrigation of Oregon landa.
This may mean the loss of millions of
dollars to the government on lands
ausceptlblo of Irrigation, which will
bo deprived of reclamation by reason
