void. This is victory for settlers.
The xrinclpal decision in the Kan Ra

that tho state of Snnora had no power to
make grants, This opinion was based
on a decree of Hunta Ana, dictator of
Mexico from 1853 to 185.1, who, in 154,
declared all grants whatsoever made by
the states and provinces of Mexico void,
All grants in Arizona, it is claimed, with

taken from the state of Bonora. The
grants in. question were as follows:

The plait I suggest is the laud lu com
mon for four year and then a division
on etjtml terms. In the United States
the government donutoa 100 acre of
land to any person who will live on it
live years, as a homestead. In Guate
mala you eau buy any quantity of
land, provided you come to make it
your home, or residence. A colony
gets very many favor ahnwu It At
the banana Colony established three
years ago, greut progress has been made.
l liat American enterprise promises to
fully realise the hopes of Its founders.
The govern men t Is affording special
protection uud encouragement to the
company. All supplies, imported for
lis use are passed free of duty, A port
of entry bus been opened especially for
be colouy, The company bus a large
and commodious hotel for the accom
modation of stranger. It has also
o dices, shops and a spacious storehouse
supplied with a full assortment of
Aniericuu merchandise for the local
rade, which Is already large and in
creasing. The colony hits planted 0U8
acres In cocimuuts and buuunus, there
being H2 colonists or an average of
about 110 acres each.
I believe an American colony would
makes the quality of codec, 20 per cent,
bolter, by using cleaner method of
harvesting. The Inventive American
also uses inuclilnery where, the native
iocs It by hand. Take the coffee busi
ness its an example. After the coffee
berry Is picked it undergoes a compli
cated process lu gel tins It ready for
umrkcl,at one tune being spread out on
the ground to dry. Why oould not
much of that be dried by machinery,
and thus save tlmo and money, Na
tive labor Is cheap both In price and
service. A unod Intelligent workluir
American is worth five of them; For
certain work they uro. however, India-
punsuble. I can Imagine a colony of
say 40 Americans going Into Guate
mala. They would first want tele
graph or telephone line to the nearest
town; then postal fuel lilies and they
would start to work, The laud would
be plutted in 40 parts. In the center
would be hiid out in blocks and streets
for a town, oiid then an Imposing ho
tel and general headquarters building
would be built. The forty men would
slush 60 acres of land a day, as It is fast
work, mid the planting of 000,000 coffee
trees, would bo done nystotnatloully
and lu good order. Buy each tract had
80 acres lu coffee. 6 lu cacao bud one in
loouoantits, the first crop would astonish
you. The rale of Interest on money iu
Guatemala I about 7 percent., so tbut
if you should run short of moliey a few
thousand dollar oould easily be lor
rowed, The only cbanoe I see for a
colony to fall is that they would allow
tb Indolence of the country to over
come them or else - would boom the
project loo much and then get dls
oouraged. American get the most en
thus!llc and also lh most dlspoud-
ut of any people. At the end of fnur
year each oolonlst would get. lit tract
and 30 ers In oofee, 0 acres lu cacao
and 1 aci In oocoauut tree, ' nud the

If lh Income were 11,000 clear, that
would be Interest ou $410,000, A good
manager of a fine will Increase the
rnlng and ft poor manager will make
them below the above figure. While
coffee and cacao ar tb staple money

land will grow almost anything. Mu

A Trip to the Midwinter Fair.
Our traveling correspondent, Wm.
Kerr, sends us the following interview
with W. W. Collin of Suvor, re
garding hi trip to California. Mr,
Collins spent several weeks in Califor
nia and visited many points of interest.
Here Is what he says:
On the morning of the 81st of Janu
ary, we left a fine day and the town of
Buver with it poultry coops, ash bar
rels, etc.; departing from Albany ou
the 10:45 train going up tho Willam
ette valley; through the mountains and
passing through a many kinds of cli
mate as a trip to the north pole, and
arrived in Ban Francisco, being thirty
six hours out from Albany, The
weather hanging arouud the Golden
Gate to be admitted on a dead-head
ticket wus cold, foggy and rainy, and
wo consequently left out of all' real
estate ads for California. In Ban Fran
cisco we stayed at the New Western
hotel on the corner of Kearny and Cal
ifornia streets, We did not. sight-see
any the first day, but went to the Mid
winter fair ground the next day. The
fair was grand, but the Mechanic's Art
building was the cuckoo for excellence.
The city homes hi Bun Francisco of the
Crocker, Hopkins, Floods and Stan
ford were the finest architecture we
Staying throe dy In San Francisco,
we started for Los Angeles; spent three
week visiting Los Angeles, Al Ham
bra end Santa Anna. At Los Angeles
we saw Mrs. Inland Stanford's private
car standing on a siding. Coming
back we passed through a couutry
( where crops were in all states of luxu-
rlanee until we reached th Golden
Gat, where wo left foggy day Which
had blwmed In our absence Into
weather unequalcd In this world. In
coming back through the mountains
we saw (hat snow plow had been at
work; -but ultimately we got back to
the land of tho gum boot where we
found the mercury lying behind th
ktove to keep warm, and snow storm
stealing down on us from the summit
of Cofflu AutUi.
Th trip I "worth the candle," and
the expense 1. moderate, more so In
Oillforiila than 4n Oregon, (Deflnl
lion of the word Oregon I Wild
Thyme), nnd who blames cltlisen for
llvltiir un to the stale' motto, and
that' what we did,
for any trace of antipyretic, morphine,
chloral or any other Injurious com
pound lu Krause's headache capsule.

George A. Well Nr.
In country where nature smile our
mind naturally revert to the men who
first had th courage to face untold
danger in order to give themselves
and families bettor advantage In the
grace of nature.
Geo. A. Well Hr. wa among th
courageous people who sought pleas
ant homes and fortune In the wild of
Oregon in '68. He was born In Pike
county, Misoourl, January 14, 1080.
HI father wa a farmer of moderate
mean near Clarksyille.
When grown to manhood George left
Missouri in '48 and went to Illinois
where he married Miss Henrietta Tur
ner. He then prepared to seek hi for
tune and "bo happy ever afterward,"
leaving PllUlield, Illinois, for the land
of the setting suu in '63, lie waa In
company with the Hubbard, Kenne
dies, Veneble and Applcgate. The
trip wa uneventful compared with
most Indian tales, but still the hard-
sbljis are not to be judged by people
who never tried the journey with ox
teams under unfavorable circum
stances. On one occasion the train
was Invaded by war like Indian who
tluiilly proved only on a begging tour,
lu course of proceeding westward the
cattle usariy all died and be was forced
to splice teams with his brother-lu law
Wm. Kennedy, and lauded at Phil
Foster's September 13, '63. He win
tered in the soutl em edge of Clacka
mas county, and In the spring moved
his small outfit to near Pblloi,atb,
lictitou county; in '58 he moved to
Marlon county, and lu the spring of '67
moved to his present home on the bank
of the Willamette near Ituena Vista.
Tim has dealt gently with the old cou
ple and they have yet many more
pleasant year to spend In the land of
their adoption. Wax.
