a. recent- production from the pen of

of American; dramatists:
In ''Tomorrow'' tho tbenie which

o woman to whom he directly ap
peals as the chief factor In the up
building of a better race.
Mana, Dale, the prlclpal female
character in the play, stands for the
highest typo ot womanhood, and
through this character the playwright
makes his appeal to tboso instincts
in woman which, once aroused, must
surely awaken her to a sense of the
wonderful responsibility she bears

NON1C go further in encouraging ami assisting tho de
velopment of natural resources, than the .Mail Tri
bune. The capitalist who invests his money is entitled to
fair return and a square deal and he has always received
it from this paper.
But tho rights of tho people are paramount to any
other consideration and when any corporation, not content
with reasonable rights and returns, attempts to obtain
a monopoly that will throttle future development, t is
time, to call a halt.
It was in the interest of the people that the Mail Trib
une recently called attention to efforts of the California
Oregon Power company to obtain a monopoly of the waters
of the Hogue river and its tributaries, in the cases pending
before the board of control The company is entitled to
reasonable protection of its investments, particularly at
Prospect, and will probablv receive such protection.
The Mail Tribune did not comment upon this feature.
What it did object to, and what in the interests of the
community, must be vigorously contested, is the alleged
right to all the waters of the 'Rogue between (told Way
and Prospect because the company has an emergency
plant at Gold Kay which it is claimed uses practically all
of the waters at low stage. This monopoly, if upheld, would
prevent the construction of needed irrigation systems upon
which the future prosperity of tho valley depends.
Supt. Stoddard of the power company, in his reply,
Tho CalifornlaOrogon Power company has no desire to Interfere with
any leKltlmato.jtistjr of water for Irrigation purpose's, but there are. cases
where land owners are claiming three or four times as much water us they
can over use, .Most or the feasible Irrigation ditches on upper Rogue river
are already constructed. The land lying along the Itoguc river above Upper
Table Rock lie1 In a buries of benches and rolling foot hills having nn ele
vation of from 50 oT?i feet above the water In the river and It Is easier
and cheaper to put water on n'8 ,tttlll D" means of electric pumping plants
than by constructlnR tulles of dUch, which Is expensive to construct, waste
ful of water and requires constant repairs.
ElectrWViniplng of wateriwlll make Irrigation possible on thousands
of acres of land, that cannot now be reached by any stysteui of gravity
ditches, making It possible to pi'imp from wells, streams and reservoirs, ami
onto lands above trie reach of any gravity system.
If the -company has desire to interfere with any legit
imate user of water for irrigation purposes, whj' Ibis con
tost to secure a monopoly i
A conduit must some da' be constructed through ")eb
enger Gap to irrigate Sams Valley. The Table Rock or
Bybee conduit and other ditches must be enlarged to irri
catc several thousand additional acres. Other conduits
must bring water in the future to other large tracts of
land. All of this will be impossible if the comnanv's claim
to monopoly is confirmed.
JMectrie pumping plants are practical ouiv tor river
bottoms and bench lands immediately adjacent, to the
( streams. It is a very fine scheme (for the company) to
restrict future irrigation to those willing, to install these
plants, thus furnishing, a1, market for power, and enabling
'tiie company-'to'olier'the water as a bonus for the use ot
power and that is what the scheme amounts to. This
feature would not bo nffectqd by the construction of large
conduits there is water enbugh for all.
Tho power-possibilities of the Eogue wore first realized
Tjy Col. Frank H. Ray and Dr. O. R. Ray. The' policy fol
lowed by tnem was an exceedingly broad and beneticiai
onet They were the first developers on a large scale, in
the valley. Previous to tho construction of the Prospect
plant, Col. Ray, in an interview in the Mail Tribune, stated
that one of the main reasons for the new plant, was that
he realized that the development of the valley calltid for
the use of a portion of the water above Gold Ray in irriga
tion enterprises, and the Prospect plant would not inter
fere with this development.
This broad policy has apparently been reversed by the
low owners, who seek through an emergency power plant
uiai is in use oniy a portion ot inc time, to monopolize an
tlic waters of the stream.

THE state railroad commission has ''refused to inter

The commission tries to convey the impression that the
rate law is unintelligible and that it cannot fathom it
part of its program to discredit the law with the public.
The commission understands perfectly well what the
railroad law means. A similar measure was introduced at
the last session of the legislature and killed in committee
by the commission. Its attitude is one of picpie and re
sentment because the system of making rates was taken
out of its hands by the people.
The commission has always sanctioned a system of
rates that discriminated in favor of Portland and against
the smaller cities. It has thus helped retard the legitimate
development of the state.
Reform in rates, to be acceptable to the commission,
must be initiated and promulgated by it. Otherwise it is
The new rate law is perfectly simple and requires no

Monopolizing Rogue River
To tho editer: Your editorial In
Saturday's paper was timely and to
tho point and should serve as u war
ning to tho people of tho valley of
losing er rights to tho waters of
Roguo river. Mr. Stoddard in his
reply cites the state water law that
"Whoever develop.es, tho waters of n
stream and puts them to a beneficial
use, Is entitled" to thoso waters."
Consequently us they havo developed
a power at Gold Ray which In a dry
time needs all tho water ot the
ltogue, thoy proposo to grab it and
interdict any further drainage of tho
river, put u strait Jacket on all fu
ture irrigation developments above
Gold Ray except when they furnish
tho power to pump with.
Tho Intention to do all this is so
read." If not why aro all thoso
"friendly" suits brought by them
against the various Individuals mid
small companies having witter rights
ubovo Gold Ray? It Is to pinch their
Wator right down to tho lowest limit

only avallablo route of convoying
water to hundreds and thousands or

Cut down tho water right to tho pros,
