THE WATER-POWER CONFERENCE "Representatives of . tho water power states aro to meet In confer ence at Portland for tho purpose of agreeing on a plan by which water power can be developed with due re gard to the Interests of tho greatoM number. The impression is belli ' fostered in some quarters that the calling of this conference Is a reac tionary move by opponents of con servation and that an attempt will be made to stitlo free discussion and to commit tho conference to a certain prearranged program," says tho Oro gonian. The initiative toward calling the conference was taken by the Oregon legislature. To commit the Interest ed states to any particular program would have been impossible, even If it had been desired. Representation of all shades of opinion in each state, and, after the fullest and freest dis cussion, agreement on a plan which will serve the common Interests of all tho states concerned, are assured l TWENTY YEARS AGO J August 10, 1X!5.

Hence the ntll cannot start development and cannot produce revenue. It can only prolong the government's holdup action by the states to develop the water which Is their exclusive property. The monopoly which sponsors of the Ferris bill profess to fear Is a bugaboo which has no terrors for the Western states, llcing far better In formed on the facts than any officials of the government or any members of congress, they know that a mon opoly is impossble. Kach having a commission to regulate rates of pub lic service, they have no fear of ex tortion by nny corporation, no mat ter how large, which may develop power. For this reason they aro not as uiixIouh as congress mid Secretary Luun seem to be that revenue be de rived from rentals. Whatever rental !s charged must he added to the price of power. If none Is charged, power will ho proportionately cheaper.
