The Salem Journal cays that on pretense that the federal oovernment
till build a canal twelve miles long and costing H500.000 and relieve the
Krmers of the great Columbia basin, the state Is asked to abandon its
fertage railroad and leave the producers and shippers to the tender mer
les of tho Harrlman syndicate until they get ready to complete the 12
Bile rock canal. The people should fight this scheme because the pre
ipse of saving money for the taxpayers Is a fraud. The pretense that
he farmers do not need the portage road because there will be a aoverrv
recnt canal built Is a fraud. The business men and farmers of the Co-
Bmbla basin should unite to fight the repeal of the portage road bill.

does not believe that the state should
give up the portage project.

Tho schema to get rid of tho Btnto
portage railroad at The Dalhu is not
