A CbAiy Max Suicides.--Esop Fox,
an Inmate of the state insane asylum,
at Salem, oommitted suicide one day
last week by jumping from the third
etory of the main building of the asy

was aged about 95 years, and was oom
mitted from Jackson county in 1894.
He was one of the early settlers of Fox

having derived lu name from bim.

Mr. T. W, Davenport, state land agent at
Salem, writes the Oregonien under date ol
January 2. that "for seversl months past
tlit federsl laud officers in this state bare
been transmitting to Governor Lord notices
from the commissioner of tbe genersl land
office at Washington that csrtain lists of
lieu-land selections, made during tbe last
four or five years, are held for cancellation,
and giving tbe state from 80 to 60 days In
which to show cause why they should not
be cancelled. Tbe reason given for so hold
ing them Is that the said selections were
made upon false or illegal bases. These
lists, which are numerous, include scores
of tracts of lands, sold by the state to as
msny individuals, citizens of the state,
whose addresses are unknown to the state
officers, and who, therefore, cannot be ap
prised of tbe critical condition of tbeirhold'
lugs by publication.
"That such a condition of affairs should
arise, by which so many persons holding
state deeds or certificates of sale are to be
dispossessed of their purchase!, cannot be
referred to mere clerical errors, and on tbs
face seems to Imply that there has been
dense Ignorance or extensiTS rascality on
the part of those officers charged with tbe
management of land matters.
"And tills is an additional reason why it
Is detmed necessary to publish, along with
tbs list of names, a brief account of the
methods adopted by the state to list and
sell the Ilea lands to whieb it ia entitled,
and Incidentally to give some explanation
of the present rathsr troublesome results.
Not a few people believe that the state Is, or
ought to be, held responsible for everything
done in Its name, and by Its officers, and
that when It executes a deed for a piece of
land is legally and morally bound to make
tbe title good. It is almost needless to say
tbsse are errors which a moment's reflec
tion mnst dispel.
"How would it do In Individual transac
tions to depsrt from tbe present safe and
just rule, that an agent cannot bind bis
principal as to business outside of the
agency, or In matters between tbe state
and its citlsens to insist that, whatever an
officer might do, the state would be bound
byttr Tbe fact is, and must be, that the
extent to which tbe state may be bound by
Its officers Is set forth in the laws ; and if a
deed be given In the name of the state, but
in derogation of law, it ia s nullity. Anil'
legal act, though done by an officer, and in
the name of the state ia still illegal and
binds nobody. The Oregon state law said
the lieu land selections shall be made 'in
tbe manner prescribed by the laws of the
United States,' but where a tract is selected
in lieu of a so called mineral base, without
such proof as tbe United States law required
to establish its mineral character, both tbe
state and federal laws were ignored by tbe
"There Is nothing unreasonable or capra-
clous, therefore, in the holding for esucel
latlon of all such selections. It is Just what
should have been expected by tbe state
land officers and the registers and receivers
of all the federal land offices in the state.
The truly strange aspect of the case is that
the state land office should make selections
In known conflict with United States laws,
and that the federal land officers should
ever permit one of them to pass to Wash
"The laws governing the selections of lien
lands have been long iu operation; every
land office In the state is in possession of
them, and of the Judicial decisions made
under them. The rule that 'lieu land selec
tions, based upon calculated deficiencies in
unturveyed townships, are invalid,' has
been declared over and over again, and yet
It haa been habitually violated by tbe Ore
gon state land office.
"The rule, thatwhere selections are made
to compensate for school sections alleged
to be mineral, 'the proof must be that tbe
mineral exists In paying quantities,' It old
and well established by judicial decisions,
sud yet a violation of it has been tbe prin
cipal stock in trade of some Oregon lien
"It goes without saying that one base
should not be used for two or more selec
tions, and so the courts have been called
upon to declare against such robbery; but
there Is plenty of evidence in the Oregon
land office, and the federal land offices, too,
that it haa been done repeatedly in the
name of the state of Oregon. I am in
formed by an ex-reglstsr of tbe United
States land office that one base served for
five selections." '
It will be remembered that lien land script
was Issued by the state which would be re
ceived as part payment for land, and land
could not be purchased without such script
This law was hardly upon the statute books
until a combination of designing men was
formed to monopolise the lieu land busi
ness, and they proceeded to bay up all the
script, and once having a "corner" on tht
supply thsy proceeded to sell it at an ad
vance over the state price, some being told
at three times the amount paid the state
for it. Not oontent with the immense profit
at this rate, they proceeded to sell numer
ous tracts of land to which the state had
not a shadow of a title, and consequently
when the matter came before the general
land office at Washington, and it appeared
that several persons held a receipt for tbe
same land the claims were all cancelled, and
as a result hundreds of Innocent people
have lost their money. There are several
viotims of the steal in this county.
