"Notwithstanding the fact that Secretary Hitchcock approved the Tieton and Sunnyside projects more than six months ago and authorized the purchase of the Sunnyside canal at the above price, the owners of the canal have been unable to collect from the government because the secretary of the interior had not approved the purchase. Objections were found which officials believed should be corrected before the government paid for the canal. Secretary Hitchcock, on advice refused to pay over the money for the canal."
