JAMES GORDON BENNETT CUP. presented to congress during the forthcoming session by Secretary of the Navy Meyer when the question of the building program is taken up for consideration. Naval experts have practically agreed tnat the new type of ship, of which congress will be asked to auth orize the building of two, will be larger and heavier than the 27,000 ton ships now under construction. The tonnage limit will be increased to at least 28,000 and probably 29,000 when the plans are matured. , The building program will probably Include torpedo destroyers, and one additional ship, either an ammunition, repair, supply or hospital ship. An Important change in the '. building plans as outlined In the tentative pro gram will be enlargement of the de stroyers to 1000 tons. The largest now afloat In- the United States navy are 750 tons. This means that the larger grayhounds of the navy, the scout destroyers, will become an ob solete class. '. -'.' Hon 3 n ina canon a a SATURDAY SPECIAL.

ITEMS OF INTEREST THROUGHOUT OREGON Chronicle of Important Even'.3 of Interest to Our Readers. May Aid Port of Siuslaw. Portland The war department has found a way to supply money for Siu slaw port improvements under an amendment adopted at the last ses sion, which for a time, it seemed, would be probably interpreted as null. District Engineer J. J. Morrow first took up the matter with the depart ment. Then Senator Bourne con ferred, and has received a memoran dum from General Blxby, chief en-' glneer, saying the department would be able to adjust matters. The terms of such (adjustment are In accordance with that provision of the amendment requiring that the port of Siuslaw commission execute a contract guaranteeing from local sources a sum equal to that which the government supplies, $215,000, the money to be placed to the credit ot the secretary of war. Salmon Eggs for Columbia River. Salem Master Fish Warden Ed ward Clanton has Just recolved 1,500, 000 sockeye salmon eggs from the government hatchery at Yes Bay, Alaska, which have been placed in the Bonneville Central hatchery, and which will tie liberated in the Colum bia river as soon as they bave been hatched to sufficient size to be self supporting. Deputy Fish Warden H. W. Thembath, of Oregon City, was sent to Alaska f,or the eggs by Warden Clianton. BALLOT COUNT EXPENSIVE Woman Loses Land Right. Klamath Falls A case which has been Jn the courts tor the past five years where the United States has teen attempting to have canceled a patent for 160 acres Issued to Mrs. Jessie M. Wright, has just been de cided in favor of the United States. The land was taken up by Mrs. Wright before her marriage, and after taking a husband she did not con sider there was an law which exclud ed her from making final proof even after she ceased to be the head of a family. 32 Initiative and Referendum Meas ures Will Add $20,000 Expense. Salem According to-u, fairly con servative estimate, it will probably cost the State cf Oregon twice as much to pay for counting the votes on the 32 initiative and referendum measures to come up before the peo ple at the general election, November 8, as the combined salaries of the senators and representatives In th legislature for a session of 40 days. And this amount includes only the ' extra election expense that will be caused because ot the measures, and has no reference to the cost ot count ing votes on the various candidates. It to safe to assert that In a pre cinct where there are 150 voters or over It will require, fully a day to count these measures alone. At any rate, with a long ballot of state, coun ty and district officers, more than a day will be consumed In counting both. As the law provides that the judges and e'erks shall be paid an extra day, even if their time runs over a fraction after the first day, It can be seen that the counting of these measures will result In an extra day's pay for all of the judges and clerks In the various precincts, and in nuany of the precincts where ttiere are from 250 to 700 voters the counting will make up two extra days.
