Done at Low Cost.
With an expenditure of $35,-
--769.34 of the $50,000 appropriated
by the state the Columbia river im
provement commission reports to
Gov. M. E. Hay that a "belt" or
channel way for 175 miles, between
Wenatchee and the border, has been
worked, making navigation practic
able along the entire river for a suf
ficient period to allow the removal of
the chief products of the tributary
The worst obstructions have been
removed and a total of 12,000 cubic
yards of earth removed.
Report Forwarded Today.
The commission, which consists of
Senator A. W. Anderson of Stevens
county, president; Fred McDermott,
of Kettle Falls, executive commis
sioner; Herman Cornehl, of Bridge
port, W. W. Bryant, county com
missioner of Stevens county, and J.
B. Valentine, Spokane, prepared
their report this week, and it will
be forwarded today to Gov. M. E.
Hay. The report covers eleven type
written pages and gives a complete
synopsis of Columbia river condi
tions found by the commission upon
undertaking the work and the steps
taken to tame the big river for boat
The financial report shows a good
balance of the appropriation still in
tact. The distribution to date is

"The operations by the state," re
ports the commission, "have been
carried on at all places with a dis
tinct view to doing certain work com
plete within certain bounds and to
leaving other work outside those
bounds or limitations for the govern
ment to do. September 29, 1909,
l permission was formally granted to
j the commission by the assistant sec
j retary of war, and on October 6,
11909, transmited to the commission
Iby Major C. W. Kutz, United States
' engineer distru-t officer at Seattle,
i authorizing the commission to pro
ceed with the work.
"The work done by the state will

lin the Columbia river. Some of this
work, while in some instances pre
liminary to other work which is ex
pected to follow, has at certain
j points constituted the first absolute
:ly necessary and most expensive and
difficult work and the doing of this
! work now makes all other jobs more
easily and safely and economically

of the work now under way or

According to the report the task
of improving the Columbia river is
one which need no longer defy the

Will Be Speaker of Lower
House Again if the Ma
Burlingame, Kas., July 20. —Jo-
seph C. Cannon will not abandon the
race for the speakership of the next,
house of representatives. This he
made plain near the conclusion of
his speech at Emporia, Kansas, this
afternoon. He said he would abide
by the will of the republican caucus
if the republicans control the next
congress, but that no "muckraking
magazines" could make him say he
would not be a candidate. In oth
er words, he said he would not make
an effort to win the speakership, yet
the emphasis with which he spoke
made it plain that if the republican
caucus should nominate him he
would be willing to serve. Speaker
Cannon's remarks on the speakership
were made just before he left the
platform at Emporia to catch a train
for Burlingame, where tonight he
makes his third political speech in
the Kansas primary campaign.
Speaker Cannon's utterances on
the speakership follow verbatim:
"I am speaker, and in March next
I will have been speaker for eight
years, a longer continuous term than
any man ever served as speaker
since the foundation of the govern
ment. There was only one man who
has had a longer service as speaker
than I have had, and there was an
interim of four years in his service.
That was Henry Clay, who in the
aggregate served 10 years as speak

letters. Candidates for congress are

"Oh, the scapegoat! This little
154 pounds of clay cannot bear
many sins off into the wilderness.
If my constituency is as kind to me
as it has been for 36 years, *I will
go back if God spares my life and
be in the next congress, either in the
majority or in the minority, and I
would rather be there in a republi
can minority, a real virile republican
minority, than to be one of any ap
parent majority that could not take
account of stock and know from one
day to another whether it. was the
majority or the minority.
'They wanted me to pledge that
I would not be a candidate for the
speakership if the republicans have
a majority of the next house.
Will Abide by Caucus.
• They will meet in caucus and se
lect a candidate for speaker. I will
be in that caucus and I will vote for
the man the caucus selects. I know
of no crime I have committed that
should bar me from entering a re
publican caucus. If you ask whe
ther I want to be speaker of the
house longer than for eight years.
I have been speaker that long be
cause my friends thought I could be
most useful as a member of congress
in that position, but as long as God
lets me live the muckraking period
icals and the socalled independent
or progressive republicans shall not
make me say that I will not be a
candidate for speaker any more than
they shall make me say, if I am
again elected to congress, that I will
not vote when my name is called."
