Secretary Garfield Threatens to Sus

Washington, Feb. 14. J. Newell,
nf the reclamation service, stated to
day that orders had been issued to shut
down work on the Klamath litigation
project, pending adjustment of differ
ences between the government and the
settlers. This announcement follows
a decision by Secretary Garfield that
settlers must pay the annual mainte
nance charge of 7o cents per acre, be
ginning May 1 nest, and must make
ten equal annual payments of $3 each
per acre for the water right, the first
water payment falling due way I,
1910.
Many settlers have announced that
they cannot pay $30 per acre for water,
but, as this is the actual proportionate
cost of building the project, the secre
tary cannot accept less. He requested
the Water Users' association to inform
him what it is willing to do under the
circumstances, but as it has not made
reply, he felt obliged to stop further
construction until satisfactory agree
ment is reached. The settlers, under
the first unit of the project, which is
completed, will be furnished water
this coming season, if they pay the
maintenance charge, but, unless there
is a speedy agreement, construction of
the Clear lake reservoir will not be
carried forward and the second unit
of the project will remain undeveloped,

ROBBERS SECURE $35,000.
Oaring Early Morning Holdup Carried
Out Near Denver.
Denver, Feb. 14. That the hold-up
of the westbound Denver & Rio Grande
passenger train, near Denver, at 3:15
this morning, was the work of three
instead of two robbers and that the
robbery of the mail car gave them a
loot of possibly $35,000, are indicated
by the investigation of the railroad and
police officials today. So far no tangi
ble clew to the identity or whereabouts
of the robbers has been found, but it
seems probable that the men came to
Denver and are now hiding in this city.
The exact amount secured by the
robbers cannot be ascertained. It is
known, however, that the registered
mail sack from Colorado Springs to
Denver was empty and that little of
value was in the Pueblo-Denver sack.
The sack from Portland, Colo., to Den
ver, however, contained $400 of money
order funds consigned to the Denver
postoffice.
The robbery was remarkable for its
originality and daring. It took place
within eight miles of Denver, within
less than two milps of Fort Logan, the
United States military reservation,
and at a spot where habitations are
plentiful. Yet so thorough was the
work of the robbers and so well were
their plans laid that they had fully an
hour and a half start of the officers.
Search of the vicinity of the hold-up
indicates that a third man and possibly
a fourth were engaged in the robbery ;
that a rubber-tired buggy was in wait
ing for the actual hold-ups and that
torpedoes and red signal fires were
used unsuccessfully in an attempt to
stop the train before the automatic
revolvers of the two men on the train
were used in doing this.
ALL FAVOR LOCKS.
Government Engineers Unanimous for
Present Canal Plan.
Washington, Feb. 14. Colonel
George W. Goethals, chairman of the
Isthmian Canal commission, and the
members of the board of engineers ap
pointed by President Roosevelt, who
went to Panama with President-elect
Taft, reached Washington today. The
board will report unanimously in favor
oi continuing the lock plan. Colonel
Goethals said :
I repeat what I said to you a year
ago, anu xnat is that the canal will be
completed and ships will be traversing
u Dy reoruary 1, 1315. Work on the
waterway is going ahead splendidly. I
am to appear before the house commit
tee on apropriations Monday, when I
will be prepared to give an estimate of
what the canal will cost.
"In my -judgment, the character of
the canal to be built has not changed
in the least The most acceptable
plan is that of the lock canal, which is
that now under construction. Anv
danger of ships bumping into the gates
or other parts of the locks, about which
some apprehension has been expressed,
will be entirely averted bv electrical
devices by which the vessels will h
kept under control at all times."
Plan Disaster Warnings.
St. Petersburg, Feb. 14. A report
has been presented to the Russian
Mefeoroloigcal Congress, in session
here, on the use of seismographs to
prevent mine disasters. These disas
ters are usually preceded for several
days by slight movements of the strata
by which explosive gases are released
or which indicate coming earth slides.
The installation of seismographs would
give amplf warning of disasters aris
ing from these two causes.
Not Satisfied With Law.
Des Moines, Iowa, Feb. 14. A peti

ment providing for absolute prohibi
tion. The signers are from pratcically

resentative calkins of a "joker" in
substitute house bill 167, providing for
precinct elections on the subject of
whether or not beer, as distinguished
irom whiskey and other liquors, should
be sold in those precincts, resulted in

votes' in its favor, the substitute eight-
hour bill, fathered by the Clackamas
county delegation, was reconsidered in
the house this afternoon and passed by

Tuesday, February 9
Salem, Feb 9. Despite the protest
of Farrell and other members of the
Multnomah county delegation, the
house this morning passed Representa
tive Bean's bill prohibiting all field
sports on Memorial day. It was in
sisted by Farrell that the measure was
practically certain of being defeated in
the senate because it would put a ban
on professional baseball in Portland on
that day. The bill passed, however,
by the following vote: Ayes, 33;
noes, 21 ; absent, 6.
Representative Altaian's bill amen
datory of the present law for creating

BREEDING PLACE OF STORMS
Rocky
Mountain Plain to Blame for
Latest Blizzards.
Chicago, Feb. 12. At last the trou-
ble-maker in things meteorological has
been run to earth. The secret men of
the United States weather bureau have
put their fingers on the capital offender
to blame for the major portion of the
squalls, gales, hurricanes, drizzles,
deluges, blasts and blizzards that afflict
mankind.
The Rocky mountain plateau is the
guilty party, according to Professor
Willis L. Moore, chief of the govern
ment weather forces, who is in town
this morning for a three days' visit
His arrival was made signal by the
declaration that the long distance
weather forecast is a success, and that
the weather office has proved its abil
ity to aetect approaching storm areas
more than a week in advance.
As an instance, Professor Moore
cited the cold snap," preceded and ac
companied by much moisture and vigo
rous air currents, that has just passed
over this city on its way to New Eng
land, when that storm was discover
ed, having just assumed malignantpro-
puriiunB, it was located in Eastern
Asia, but its baggage was checked
right through.
