Phono Main 81, -
Mr. John D. Ryan president of the Montana Power
Company testified before the Public land committee of
the United States senate during the hearines on the Fer
ris bill, that "the payment of federal taxes is not vital to
the investors m water. power securities so long as that
tax can oe passed on to the consumer." It is not only the
tax such investors pass on to the consumer, but with it
they pass all other bills and then want an unhcly profit
ior letting tne people nave the use ot their own property,
"Let Ima come home :" a little storv in Monday's Capi
tal Journal written by Ella McMunn, is commended to the
authorities in charge of the Girls' Industrial school, not
only as a pathetic bit of writing splendidly worded, but in
the hope that it was not written in vain, and that the
hearts of "Rose" and "Tom" may be cheered and made
happy at the glad Christmas time. Why . not. as Miss
McMunn says, "give Ima as God would, another chance?"
WATER POWERS, WHO SHALL OWN THEM?
1 ' The Oregon Voter prints and commends an address
made somewhere, it does not state the place, on the sub
ject of the development of western water powers and the
difficulties the big companies meet with in getting posses
sion of water rights on government lands. The argument
is a strong one from the capitalistic side, but as Mr.
Mitchell is pres'dent of the Electric Bond & Share Com
pany of New York City, and his and his company's prin
cipal business is. getting capitalists to invest in water
power development, it would seem that he looks upon all
laws Keeping any rights to the waters of the country in
tne nanas ot the people much as a coyote does on a wire
fence that shuts him away from the fat lambs on the
other side of it.
Nature has placed a vast reservoir high above the
valley in the Cascade mountains which will furnish mil
lions of horse power when controlled
The question is shall this vast power worth a billion
or more dollars be turned over to those who want to
develop and own it, or shall it be kept for the people to
control at least' or to develop for their own use?
True, the water running down the mountains uncon
trolled is of no, value and can only be conserved by being
. used, yet is it of not as much value to the people while
. running to waste as it is turned over to a company which
will sell it back to the people at more than it is worth?
In other words is it worth while to sacrifice the water
rights in order to let some company charge us as much
for the power as it would if it had to create the same
power by the use of fuel and steam? This is what these
development companies want, if they can get it, and Mr.
Mitchell would sacrifice every right of the people of Ore
gon and the coast in order to facilitate his business of
getting a snug rake off for putting big companies in
possession of property now belong'ng to all the people.
' The Oregon woolgrower has had his eyes opened to
the truth by only two years of practical list of "free wool."
He used to howl for a high tariff in season and out of
season and was sure he was ruined when the Underwood
' law went into effect, but instead has had the most pros
perous period in a whole generation. This fact is what
opened the woolgrowers' eyes.'and at their convention at
Pendleton last week the usual high tariff plank was
missing. Instead a demand was made for laws against! Suoreme Court Sav$
It is queer how things twist around. The Panama
building at the exposition was closed durine-the entire
fair, because the little republic had made no appropria
tion for keeping it open. So the country which in a sense
was the cause of .the great exposition was about the only
one that took no part in it.
Speaking of luck what do you think of a fellow who be
cause he had only one arm to hold up when tackled by
bandits was shot and killed? That is what happened to
Michael McCarthy of St. Louis Sunday night.
The suffragists are game and though thev lost half a
mile of petition containing 100,000 names they paraded
just as numerously and gaily as though a little thing like
that was of no moment.
