Tongue has been one of the most active, energetic and faithful workers in congress which our state has ever had. His efforts during his term there are matters of public record, standing out prominently on the records of congress, and no one need be mistaken or mislead the public about them. He has expended as much effort and in dustry in the endeavor to do something good for Yaquina har bor as any member which Ore gon has hitherto sent to congress. It is true Mr. Tongue appeared ihl congress alter a considerable number of prominent and influ ential capitalists in eastern cities had become indignant over the losses they had sustained by the failure of the Oregon Pacific Railroad which led them and their friends to oppose the im provement of Yaquina bay. The records show that after the fail ure in 1895, Capt. Simons of the government engineers, reported stating that "a further extension of the jetties at Yaquina would be a useless expenditure of money and would not deepen the har bor." Although Senators Mitch ell and Dolph and Mr. Hermann including Mr. McBride, were in congress for nearly two years afterwards, and who were all ready and willing to do all they could for Yaquina bay, yet after Capt. Symon's adverse report these gentlemen, with all their energetic work, were not able to procure any further money ap propriated or expended upon Ya quina bay. It is true that the river and harbor committee act of 1896, by a majority of only one vote of the committee, authorized the secretary of war to let a con tract for the extension of the jet ties, but the enforcement was left to the discretion of the secretary of war. After the bill passed members of that committee, in cluding some who had supported the bill, who became convinced that it should not pass, went be fore the committee on commerce in the senate and endeavored to secure au amendment striking out the provision for Yaquina harbor. This was prevented only by the energetic and faith ful work of Senators Mitchell and McBride. The engineering department at all times made a bitter and strong opposition to that improvement. While that authority was given as stated in 1896, Messrs. Hermann and Mitchell remained in congress until March 4, 1897, besides Ore gon had two other members in congress, everyone a worker, ready and willing to do every thing possible for Yaquina bay, and yet these gentlemen during that time were unable to induce the secretary of war to approve the contract, or to take a single step toward carrying it out. They were not able to overcome the opposition stated to this im provement. After Mr. Tongue took his seat in coHgress, thugh a new member, without experi ence and not on the committee of rivers and harbors, by persistent effort he succeeded in doing what the others had not been able to do. He prevailed upon the secretary of war to ap prove the contract and direct that it be let, which was done in the spring of 1898. Authority was then sent out early to Capt. Fisk. It lay in his office for weeks, and no steps were taken to advertise it. Mr. Tongue again went before the secretary of war, who issued positive or ders directing Capt. Fisk to ad vertise the contract at once and without further delay. L After the advertisement' and consider able unnecessary delay, the con tract was awarded to a Chicago firm for a trifle over half of the previously estimated cost. When this firm scut its papers to Capt. Fisk they were delayed and re- turned upon the most trivial j : grounds, and for the omission of the most trivial words. They , laid iu his office some weeks. What the force was behind this to cause all these continued delays and opposition, is difficult to explain. But this force was powerful to be maifested in so many ways, and appearing un der all conditions. Such oppo sition could not come from one organized effort, but must have been from many. After the engineering depart ment could not reasonably delay longer, then the river and har bor committee requested further delay to be given until it could consider a repeal. Mr. Tongue sought several inverviews with the secretary of war and also chief of engineers, but was un able to get them to disregard the request of the committee on rivers and harbors. Finally, the river and harbor bill was brought in containing a provision for the total repeal of that part favoring further improvement of Yaquina harbor, which passed the house after repeated efforts of Mr. Tongue to get it amended. There was not a single amend ment made to the bill on the floor of the house without the consent of the committee. The bill was supported by a very large num ber of strong delegations who had interests provided for in the bill that it was impossible for those left out to obtain amend ments. The bill was sent to the senate and through the persist ent efforts of Senator McBride this provision was stricken out. When it came back to the house, the house relused to concur in that and a number of other amendments. The conferees on the part of the house refused to yield or acceed to the decision of the senate. The house was in session all uieht and the senate also, on the morning when con gress must adjourn on the 4th of March. Such was the long con tinued fight that Mr. Tongm urged to preserve the improve ment to Yaquina bay. The con ferees of the senate finally agreed to a compromise. The repealing clause was stricken out, a pro vision was made instead lor a new commission to examine and report upon the improvement. The contract was thus delayed. Ihe report 01 this commission (Page 8) shows that Mr. Tongue with other citizens of the Wil lamette valley on April 21, 1899 appeared at Newport, Oregon, before the commission 01 engin eers where Mr. Tongue made an extended and able argument in fayor of continuing the improve ment of Yaquina harbor. These facts are gleaned from the records 01 coneress where all may see and read. Mr. iongue s public iile 111 this state as one of the most able and successful practicing lawyers of Oregon, a prominent repub lican, forcible public speaker and always able to refute the fallacies 111 opposing political doctrines, are so well and favorably known to all of the people of Oregon that further comment thereon would be considered useless Call for Warrants.
