THE FIGHT FOR AN OPEN WILLAMETTE RIVER
The campaign for free locks at the falls of the Willamette
river was begun in earnest three years ago,
An Open River Association was organized at Albany, cem:
posed of strong men from all the valley towns.
During the fall of 1906 many meetings were held in the
valley towns to arouse enthusiasm for the project.
In the legislature of 1907 a bill was introduced for the pur
chase of the locks and canal at Oregon City by the state.
This bill was opposed by Congressman Haw ley, who took
the positoln that the federal government should bear a part
of the expense,
' A bill was finally put through the legislature appropriating
$300,000 to aid in purchasing the locks and canal.
This bill was framed on the theory that the federal govern
ment wpuld appropriate at least a similar sum,
Sdnator Fulton introduced a resolution directing the war
department to make up a new estimate of the cgst of the
That resolution was left sleeping in the hands of the com
mittee on commerce of the United States Senate,
Last fall Senator Bourne took up the battle for free locks
and canal and secured an order for a new engineering estimate
of the cost of construction.
In the meantime the Oregon legislature of 1909 passed a
new law appropriating the former amount and extending the
time when the money would be available to 1912, and cover
ing the former appropriation into the general fund,
Two legislatures have expressed the willingness of the state
to bear its share of the cost of purchasing the locks and canal
from the corporation that now owns them.
The entire delegation from Oregon Is a unit in favor of
the acquisition of the locks and canal by the general govern
ment, and maintaining them free to the people of Oregon,
It is expected that next to the Columbia river the delegation
places a free and open Willamette river as first in importance
to the people of Oregon.
The appropriations for the free locks and canal will be one
of the first items In the great rivers and harbors bill of the
next session of congress, which meets in December,
Not only are all the commercial bodies of Western Oregon
enlisted for this appropriation, but the Portland commercial
bodies appeared in pdrson before the legislature and will
appear before congress if necessary.
Every development convention held in Oregon, and some in
Idaho, have demanded the opening of the Willamette river to
It is the most Important improvement that can possibly be
made in the interest of the producers of Western Oregon,
It will affect groat savings on every pound of freight that
comes Into or goes out of the Willamette valley.
A free and open river with no tolls on commerce of any
description moans a tremendous advantage to the Portland
jobber and manufacturer,
It means removing a tax of 50 cents a ton on the producers
of Western Oregon,
That is a biggor tax than all the other taxes combined on
tho tiller of the soil,
The tolls at the falls of tho Willamette now exacted by a
prlvato corporation not only keep many steamboats off the
river but are absolutely prohibitive on many industries and
many classes of freight, ,
Fencing of the public domain by large corporations is no
greater crimo against the settlers than the fence at the falls
of the Willamette is against tho producers and business In
terests of Western Orogon,

Beautiful Hair at Small Cost
HAIR trouble!, like many other diseases, lure

understood. The hair Itielf li not the thing to
be treated, for the reason that it It limply a product
of the scalp and wholly dependent upon it action.
The scalp is the very soil In which the hair Is pro
duced, nurtured and grown, and it alone should
receive the attention If results are to be expected.
It would do no earthly good to treat the stem of a
plant with a view of making It grow and become
more beautiful the soil In which the plant grows
must be attended to. Therefore, the scalp In which
the hair grows must receive the attention If you are
to expect It to trow apd become more beautiful.
Lois of hair Is caused by the scalp drying up,
or losing Its supply of moisture or nutriment; when
baldness occurs the scalp has simply lost all its
nourishment, leaving nothing for the hair to feed
upon (a plant or even a tree would die under similar
The natural thing to do In either case, Is to feed
end replenish the soil or scalp as the case may be,
and your crop wilt grow and multiply as nature
intended It should.
Knowlton's Danderine has a most wonder
ful efTect Upon the hair glands and tissues of the
scalp. It Is the only remedy for the hair ever
discovered that Is similar to the natural hair
foode or liquids of the scalp.
It penetrates the pores quickly and the hair
soon shows the effects of Its wonderfully eshllar
atlng and life-producing qualities.
