STEEL POSTAL CARS.
Prom designs of Its own motive
power engineers, the Southern Pa
cific Company's Sacramento shops
have just turned out the most ad
vanced type of all-steel postal car.
There is not a scrap of wood any
where in the car except the window
frames. From wheels to roof the
car Is of steel frame, door, sides and
Besides cutting down the danger
of telescoping and reducing deterio
ration to a minimum, the value of
the all-steel postal car, the railroad
officials say, is that it protects the
entire train from the fire danger by
interposing an unburnable barrier
between the locomotive and the
coaches. The additional safety se
cured td postal employes and. the
contents of the car is another Im
In the new Southern Pacific postal
car the main feature of the lower
frame are two massive twelve-inch
I-beams that weigh SHd pounds per
foot. It Is mainly due to theseJ
beams that the steel car can with
stand over 200 per cent, more shock
than an ordinary car with wooden
sills. Monolith laid over two
courses of corrugated steel forms the
Inside the car Is lined with as
bestos, while the celling, like the
outside and the roof, Is of steel
plates. In every direction the car is
strongly braced, and to take up
heavy shocks on the end frame a
Bteel plate twenty inches wide Is rlv
oted across the top framing. The
whole car is so completely bound
together that the most severe shock
might possibly buckle the entire
framing, but could not telescope the
Electric lighting and steam heat
ing automatically regulated add still
further to the fireproof qualities or
the car. All the fittings, racks and
apparatus used In handling the malls
are of steel or brass.
Department of the Interior, Gen
eral Land Office, Washington, D. C,
Mny 15, 1907 Hon. W. C. Hawloy,
M. C., Salem, Ore.:
Sir. In the case of the United
States vs. Jones 10 L. D., 23 the
Department has under consideration
the act of May 28, 1880 (21 stat.
143), which gives certain actual set
tlers the rldght to purchase lands In
the Osage Indian reservation, in Kan
sas. It was held In said decision
that the term "actual settler" refers
to one who had made settlement on
the land and followed same by resi
dence. This has been the ruling of
the office in regard to the meaning
of the term "actual settler," and the
same ruling would hold good in re
gard to the construction of the term
'actual settler," when used In a grant
to a railroad company.
(Signed) FRED. DENNETT,
General Kurokl, the doughty Jap
anese commander who led the little
brown men through the seige of
blood and rampage in the late Russo
Japan war, with a bravery that has
called forth world comment, met his
Waterloo when the v:3lted the Chi
cago stockyards recently and wit
nessed the killing of a porker. The
adroit matter of fact manner In
which the butcher plunged the long
shining blade into the hog's throat
produced a marked effect upon the
dauntless Jap. Reports say that he
quailed and shrank back involun
tarily. It was probably not so much
a feeling of pity for the hog as the
fact that it was probably his first
look Into the mysteries of the great
est stockyards In the world. Any
one who has witnessed the lightning
manner In which live stock is trans
formed into canned beef and meat
in the stockyards will make allow
ances for the General's temporary
CUT RATE CLOTHING.
Over Pendleton way Ike Kahn
and Mr. Moses, competing clothiers,
are entangled in a cut-price fight on
overalls. From G5 cents that ar
ticle of male apparel has dropped to
several degrees below the zeromark.
Neither firm will "give quarter," and
In tho meantime all Pendleton is
stocking up with an over abundant
supply of overalls. It is apparent?
that both Mr. Kahn and Mr. Moses
aro going to lose sevetal dollars in
order to demonstrate what?
Ono of the Portland papers com
mented tho other day on tho largo
amount of Coos Hay cream that Is
being shipped Into the Rose City of
late. A few days lator the Morning
Oregonian, Astoria, printed an ar
ticle on the Baino subject. There is
no question but that our products
aro slowly but suieiy attaining a
position of prominence along tho Pa
cific coast. Tho iiiimo Coos'Day is
becoming synoninious of lumber, coal
and dairy products. Though tho fact
that this country has had these re
sources has nlways been more-or
lobfl known, it has remained for the
growth an doxpanslon of tho coast to
accentuate and place thorn forcibly
beforo the people.
AN "ACTUAL" SETTLER.
Saloni, Oro. Many inquiries aro
being made concerning tho meaning
of the torm "actual settlor," as used
iu tho land grant to the California
& Orogan Railroad. Company. Ac
cording to Judge ltalllngur's opinion
the construction of that torm will
devolve upon tho courts, sltico tho
matter has passed out of tho hands
of tho administrative department of
tho Government, unloss a forfeiture
is declarod. Up to this time I had
found no opinion of tho courts made
upon a similar enso. I wrote to tho
General Laud Office to find what au
thoritative construction that Depart

D L. Avery,
and the work will soon be taken up
again. Three million acres of land
are held by that company. Much of
It Is In Oregon and should be opened
up for settlement. It will bo a won
derful boon to the State of Oregon
when the land trust Is compelled to
disgorge its superfluity of holdings
and the acres thus secured are
turned over to the axe and the plow.
Every citizen In Coos county is in

ent land suits. The Oregon & Cali
fornia Railroad Company holds
some of the best timber lands in
this county, and under existing con
ditions the land only acts as a detri
