Willamette River
Will Not Be Cleared
Above Corvallis This Year
Washington, Dee. 7. Snagging oper
ations on the Willamette river from
Corvallis to Eugene, Ore., were found
several years ago to be impracticable
at a reasonable cost, and for that rea
son nothing will be done in that direc
tion unless congress specifically pro
vides for it.
This is the substance of a letter re
ceived by Senator Chamberlain from
Uolonel li. Taylor, acting chief of en
gineers of. the army, in connection
with a requast from tho Oregon City
Transportation company, which de
sires to extend its service up-river to
r.ugeno. i unds are authorized to be
osed for aid to navigation at high wa
ter between Corvallis and Harrisburg,
but nothing for the section between
Harrisburg and Eugene. Originally the
project covered snagging to Eugene
but this was discontinued in 1904. .
Colonol Taylor summarizes the pro
ject, upon which money may be used
a.i including the removal of obstruc
tions and construction of controlling
works to secure 12 feet at low water
from Portland to Osweeo. seven miles:
dredging, Bnaggihg, dam and revet
ment worlt to- secure a channel of two
and a half to three and a half feet
at low wntcr froth Oswego to Cor
vallis, 112 miles, and snagging in aid
of high water navigation from Cor
vallis to Harrisburg, 33 miles.
ia view of the positive tooling that
no r;ew projects or extensions are
likely to be authorized by the next
congress, there is little prospect for
extending tne scope, of worn on tie

Tariff of Less Concern
To Sheepmen Now
Pendleton, Ore., Deo. 0. With elec

and a banquet at the Hotel Pendleton,
the Oregon Woolgrowers' association
concluded its convention Saturday. A
number of resolutions were adopted at
the close of the session.
It was resolved that since the I.aFol-
letto seamen's law is working an injury
to American shipping, it be condemned
and that congress be asked to repeal
the law. ...
The association went on record as fa

Income and Other Taxes.
Lowering of present limits of income
taxes and increase, step by step, of sur
taxes on larger incomes, was suggested.
New internal taxes mentioned by the
president "which can justly be resort
ed to witnout nampering tne industries
of the country or putting any too great
charge upon individuals expenditure"
Gasoline and naphtha, one cent per
gallon, yielding $10,000,000.
Horsepower of automobile and in

horsepower, yielding $15,000,000.

"I am sorry to say the gravest
threats against our national peace havo
been uttered within our own bordors.
There are citizens of the United States,
l blush to admit, born under foreign
flags, but welcomed under our natural
ization laws to the full and free oppor
tunity of America, who have poured
the poison of disloyalty into the very
arteries of our national life, who have
sought to bring the authority and good
name of our government into contempt
to destroy our industries wherever they
thought it effective for their vindic
tive purposes to strike at them' and to
debase our politics to tne uses of for

nation has been enriched in recent gen
erations out of virile foreign stocks,
but it is great enough to have brought
deep disgrace upon us and to haver
made it necessary that we should
promptly make use of processes of law
by which we may be purged of their
corrupt distempers. America never
witnessed anything like this before. It
never dreamed it possible that men,
sworn into its own citizenship, men
drawn out of great free stooks such as

Some Business Plans.
- Another grave question was for steps
to mobilize United States economio
measures in times of national neces

and transportation to consult with
army and navy officials to aid in solu
