HITCHCOCK TO RESIGN.

Washington. Nov. 27. . The fact
leaked out tonight from a responsible
aource that at a recent cabinet meeting
Ethan Allen Hitchcock, secretary of
the Interior, expressed a desire to ten

member of congrea from western
states, who charge that Mr. Hitchcock,
in operation against land grabber",
has permitted hia personal feeling to
enter into the prosecution. nne
thia rharire bad been often repeated, it
is said that the retirement ot Mr.
Hitchcock will be wholly due to the
desire ot the president to surround
himself with younger men.

ccasion of fail previous visits, contend'
ing that Oregon a 61 per cent reserve

Mr. Fulton maintains that, even if
ihe secretary adhere to hia determine
ton to charge the entire coat of the
Klamath work to Oregon, there is yet
unougii money in tbe reclamation fund
to the credit of Oregon to build tbe
Umatilla project. On June 30 last
Oregon' restricted fund was practically
12,600,000. Deducting $2,000,000 al
lotted for Klamath, there was yel
,500,000 left, and it ia Mr. Fnlton't

make the other $500,000 necessary foi
the Umatilla project. Tbe secretary it

Notwithstanding that he denominates

road people aa a "graft," tbe secretary
will not formally set aside thia project,

on bad a conlerenca with Secretary
litebcock today on Oregon irrigation
natter. He waa advised, aa previoua
y stated in theae dispatches, that tbe
ecretary will not tbink ot building the
Vlalbeur project nnder existing condi
tions, but was surprised to find the sec
retary unwilling to make any allotment
for the Umatilla project. After some
argument, tbe senator, obtained ft con
ditional promise from tbe aecretary
which, if fulfilled, will mean early
adoption and construction of the Uma
At tbe outset tbe aecretary stated
that he bad already allotted $2,000,
000, to tbe Klamath project, which be
bad charged np to Oregon. Thi
amount ia within $465,000 of Oregon'
restricted fund; in other worda, ia
within that amount of 61 per cent of
Oregon's contribution to the reclama
tion fund. The aecretary, nnder tbe
law, ia obliged to expend thi 51 per
cent in Oregon, but he clearly showed
to the senator that be ia unwilling to
give Oregon more than its 61 per cent.
The aenator told the secretary that tnn
Klamath ia not entirely an Oregon pro
ject. He pointed out that about bait
the land nnder that project lies n Cal
ifornia, and further stated that Kla
math trade, after the project i built,
will go largely to California. He there
fore insist that it is unjust to baud
the Kalamatb poject entirely with
Oregon funds, and demands that the
$2,000,000 allotment ahould be divided
ind at least half of it charged to Cali
fornia. If thia ia done, the secretary
will have $1,500,000 for immediate ex-
