A suit was filed last Tuesday in tie I U . 6. Circu't Court by L. K. Nichols, of Marshfield against the Southern Oregon Company, for the purpose of t";tiug the title of the latr to 30.CC3 acres of tim ber and agricultural land ia South weBtern Oregon. The land in controversy is a part of the 60,000 acres granted to the state of Oregon by act of Congress, 1869. The grant included every t id numbered e 3 tion on either side of a proposed mili tary wagon road from Coos Bay to Rose burg, and was to be held in truBt by the state and disposed of to actual settlers at $2.50 per acre, the proceeds to be used in building the road. The state ac cepted the grant, and shortly afterward theUegislature transferred half of the grant to a company, which agreed to and did, build the road. This company went out of business, the land passed through the hands of several parties and is now held by the Southern Oregon Company. The complaint in this suit alleges that the title to the land in ques tion was obtained contrary to the 1 pro na is visions of the Federal therefore void. Btatate, e. STATE NORMAL SCHOOL.

' Last Tuesday the Indian War Veter ans of Uregon and Washing in held their annual reunion . Tbe list of veter ans is growing rapidly smaller. Fifty, eight names have been add:i to the honor roll during tbe past year. These m!..ings are very in. ?r:iling end very pathetic; iu'.aresting on re count of the' many and varied experi ences related by the old Indian fighr. pathetic on account of the advancing age and thinning ranks of those who risked their lives in defense of Oregon. One of the moat important acts of the mr. ting was the vindication of Grand Commander T.

In Crook county 66 more sheep were killed. Masked men did tbe work and told the herder more would be kill ed if tae herd was not kept out of that I It is quite probable that Salem and Portland may yet be connected by an electric line. Tbe line dot extends from Portland to Canemah and the talk is to extend it to Salem by way 01 Sil ver tm. The Pendleton schcol district issued $60,C0O, ii pei cent 20-year bond, The Woodmen of the World bave taken th entire issue, this being the first invest ment the W. O. W. have made in Ore gen. Two men entered a store in Pendleton and asked for some hat pins. A dispute arose that ended in a tight in which the hat pins were used as weapons. Both men were intoxicated. At last Salem has decided to have a high school, One grade is to be added each year until a full four year's course is in etiect. A new gold mine was discovered near Mcdford bv two boys Willtnar Gilmore aud Harry Briggs. It is said that four of them pounded out $3900 worth of gold in one day with a mortar and pestle. Some men near Eugene were drilling a well and had reached a depth of 52 feet when they heard a roaring noise which seemed to enme irom the eaath. They became frightened and quit1 work. The noise continued for several hours, and one man said it sound. d as loud as the Willamette would were it falling over a hundred foot precipice. Four hundred dollars are now offered as a reward for the capture of Creftisld, the Holy Roller apostle. Circulars giving a description of him are being sent out. Mardi Oras Carnival at Porland The great Mardi Graa Carnival to take place in Portland, Oregon, June 28th to July 7th, inclusive, promises to be the most stirring and magnificent celebra tion tbat has ever cccured in the North westperhaps the most brilliant occur rence of its kind that has yet been plan ned and carried out on this coast. There is absolutely no graft, and no personal profit, in the whole affair, and this is perhaps one of the most potent reasons why everybciy, without any discrimination whatever, ticb and pjit alike, prominent citizen, and quiet burg her, city denizen and hamlet dweller, one and all are intensely interested in the grand success of this celebration tbat will do honor to this whole section of America. To begin to enumerate the big feat ures is almost confusing. Of course tbe fact that five of the Nation's big battle ships have been ordered to Portland to etay during the Carnival, is one great attraction. Thf y will be open for visitors and decked in gala dress. The Spectacular Parade on the opening dav will be the grandest affair beyond all imaginative eyes to describe surpassing anything you can imagine or express 'n point of magiiihcence and spectacular display. Tbe Slate Militia, Uncle Sam's boys from Vancouver Barracks aider General Funslon, all the Trades Organizations, over thirty floats, visiting organizations from far and near, altogether making an attempt at brilliancy never hereto fore dreamed of in Portland. The railroads have all made moderate rates from all points to Portland and re turn with stop over privileges for the Carnival, and no one should leave them' se'vesout of the joyous event. They bave promised celebrations before that were well worth seeing, but this will go fir ahead of anything we have ever had before. The conditions are just right. The appropriate organizations have got ten together. Ibis is tbe great Tear to; tbe northwestern country, any way, and altczether this Carnival has an un bounded support in the hearts and souls of every living soa and daughter of Ore gon and Washington. Mirage Hear Silverton. From the Silvertonian-Appeal. On Howell prairie, a few miles from this city, may be seen something of phenonema, which is callri mirage, an optical illusion which is arising from tbe . 1- 1 t . lll nneuui 1 :iii ruiracuuu wuicn causes remote objects ti be seen double as reflected in a mirur or a body of water. This, we understand, was discovered many years ago, but few people are aware of the fact tbat such conditions really exist in that vicinity and few have taken the t Ins to investigate. A. Wnit- lock's attention was attracted by the phenomenal conditions while be was riding along the road recently, and since having' called attention to the matter quite a little interest bas been aroused. Last Sunday Professor J. K. Buff and C. N. Matlock wheeled out to the scene of the mirage and found it of sufficient im portance to be really Interesting. , Driven tt Desperation.

To the Courier In your issae of June 10th, in commenting on tbe effects of tbe late election, you say in effect that "We respect the political honesty of our opponents." Bni in truth, Mr. Editor, can we really do so? Had Hermann, as a private 'citizen unconnected with party issues, b$en arraigned before the courts to answer those same charges of land frauds, is there a Republican jury In this Mate that would not bave convicted him of those charges? -1 think not;' yet lor "political reasons," no doubt, Hermann must be voted in as our reoresentative in congress. Great Scott 1 Is Hermann in reality our representative? Does he not repiesent capital and class legisla tion? But Roosevelt's election must be secured. Ah me I For what purpose? In 1840, when VanBuren and Tipp. canoe Harrison were before the people for the presidency, Democrat and Whig vied each with the other in exhibitions of carty zeal. But when the news came .1 LTT . ... tuai namson was to oe president, a good honest Demcirat tawr l his bead, scratched it a little on one side and said, "Well, let it be so; I can trust Harrison to care ior tbe constitution." But can a Democrat today say as much of the chief executive of the opposite party ? When we set up tbe laws of congrtss as being above the constitution, we are not bup porting the constitution. When we leg;d late for classes at the expenss of the masses, we are not supporting the cftnj stitation. When commercialism is pro tected and encouraged so as to culminate in an aristocracy, we are not supporting the constitution. When militarism is encouraged that we may be prepared for a career of conquest, we are not support ing the conttitution. When our national history is perverted in ragard tD the principle of modern expansion as com pared with the expansion of Jefferson, the perverter of tbat history must have known that he was not in harmony with the constitution. When we hold an in telligent but conquered people, as in Porto Rico, as being neither citizens nor foreigners, we are violating the constitu tion. When war iswazedou an innc cent and liberty loving people that they may be held as colonial subjects, and their country governed for our gain, we are violating the constitution. In fact, in these days, in the mind? of tbe dominant .party, tbe constitution se' ms to be held as of secondary import ance, whereas it is the supreme law of tbe land and deserves and should receive our first consideration at ail times. But I am compelled to say tbat in mv opin ion the constitution and the liberties of the people guaranteed by tbat instru ment ate not safe In tbe hands ol the Republican party of today. Kirki.ey. Letter from L. W. Ingram, Hooli Rivbr, Or., June 13th. 1904. Editor Courier: Twelve hundred acres is about the acreage of straw beiries in this district, I am told, and just at this time it presents a picture full of life and .nergy. Look where you may, tbe landscape is dotted with tents gleaming in the sun lght singly, in small groups and in miniature towns and everywhere can be seen the pickers gathering the luscious fruit into a carrier, a shallow box containing just six barry boxes. This, when filled, is carried to the pack ing room, where they pass under the eye of the proper person to inspect them. for which duty perlormsd they receive a check calling for six boxes, if full, amounting to the collossal sum of 0j. In the packing room, where all is made ready for shipment, men and women empty each box sort out all iuiDeifect berries, average the size and pack info crates, and you have the oerries as you see them on the market. Albeit, you do not see the same quality in your city by the beautiful Willamette that is shipped from here. They are simply beautiful to look upon and sweet to the palate, In order to gather and ship the crop from this acreage, 3,6'JO pickers and 2 C.3 packers, bosses, insisctors and draymen are required. - Indians, Chinamen, Jap anese, Dutch, Irish, English, trench, Italians, as well aa Americans, are here; and in such a motley group I find much to interest me. We bave the city man camped alongside his country cousin, mingling with each other in tne moat perfect harmony, all on the same level while it lasts. When the shades of night are falling and far into the small hours we hear tbe Tom Tom's slow and monotonous beat waited to our ears on the sweet low zephyrs of even'ng from the Indian camp, by which we are sum monedcalling the braves and dusky maidens to the dance and that tbe whites may also locate them ; for tbe son of the forest likes to pas tbe hat around as well aa his Methidist brother and return "thanky" to one when his contribution suits his fancy. Tbe strawberry crop is reported not more than half what it should be, giving as the reevm tbat they bad some aim culty with the irrigation company and did not have water early enough to per feet the crop. 1 he hai f; it wnl be over by Saturday in this section but I am in formed that alons and amort the foot' bills it it just commencing.

The Post Office Depart ment's exhibit in the United States Government building at the World's Fair conta'ns some curious things. Tbe collection taken from the Dead Letter office in Washington it the most curious of all. It contains almost everything from an alligator to a pocket knife. There are several young alligators, rattle snakes, scorpions, dolls, pistols, knives, oraas kuucics, cares, shoes, hats, and all kinds of curios, wh'ch were sent through the mails, but were never called for, or else were held for postage and finallv were buried in the Dead Letter office. Another feature of this exhibit is more pathetic than amusing. It is a large col lection of wartime photographs of Uniou and Confederate officers and private sol diers that were sent from the field to loved ones at home, but never reached their destination. These old photo graphs could tell many a talo of love, sorrow and separation, but are onlv mute relics of bygone days, and their patnetie tales remain untold. Another feature of the Post Office De partment's exhibit bIiows the methods of carrying the mails. Here are paint ings of the various kinds of mail carriers in Uncle Sam's service. The plainsman of the West on his trusty broucho is gal loping across tne trackless plains, with his mail bag across his saddle. The mail carrier on the frozen wilds of Alaska is seen on snow shoes, with his pack on his back and a mail dog sledge, with seven dogs from Alaska standing as if ready to Biari acrosB tne snow-clad plains. The mail carrier of the northern woods of Maine on his snow shoes and the Pnrto Rican mail carrier on his little mule are other features of this lD'erestine exhibit An old stae coach, which saw service in tbe Rc:ky Mountains for many years carrying mail and passengere, is an in teresting sight, showing the old mothod of carrying the mail, while an up-to-date electric mail car Bhows tbe new method. Uountry mail delivery is chown in moving pictures, showing the arrival of tbe rural mail back, tbe delivery of mail to the rural population and the gather ing of the mail through the country. A postal car interior is exhibited with its mass of mail sacks, showing how the mail is handled on the railroads. Tnese leatures form instructive oblect lessons to the public and give better ideas of the magnitude of Uncle Sam's domains and its varied climates aud con1 ditions. .

Mount of Marquam It engaged in raising Oregon quails lor shipment to Ohio and other Eastern states. At the present he has tweuty birds laying and sitting. Quails in captivity ore readily tameu and do not manifest the restless ness of China pheasants. They thrive well on wheat and such other food as is usually fed to chickens. Mr. Mount states that care must be taken to avoid putting quails of different coveys in the same pen, as they will kill one another. Washington Letter. (From Our Regular Correspondent ) Washington, D. C, June 16, 1804. As tbe large Republican majority in Oregon has filled tbe champions of the administration with increasing hope and confidence, bo it has had a depressing, effect in other quarters, and it is not to l) denied that Democrats have been ihrown by it into a contemplative mood. . Is it an indication that the whole West is fur Roosevelt ? Ot course it would take a good many of the chicken-feed , states that bave only three electoral votes to counterbalance New York. Illi-, nois or Ind ana, but Demoj.ats feel that they have no vjtes whatever to spare. Of course they are somewhat stimulated and buoyed up by the ragtime tunes played by tbe Republicans in Ohio, Il linois, and Wisconsin, especially the last two states ; white Delaware alone, which Republican quarrels seem deter mined to throw to the Democrats, would offset such a state as Nevada or Idaho. If Spooner and his fellow bolters keep up tbe fight they are making upon tbe regulars in Wisconsin, the electoral vote of the State is likely enough to be thrown against Roosevelt, especially as he has taken a hand in the controversy, first on one side and then on the other. The cable brings us news that Perdi cars and Varley "may be released to morrow." But May bees, we are told, do not fly every day. It was likely from the first that so cunning a bandit as Raisouli would Insist on some trust worthy guaranty that Morocco would do as it agreed ; otherwise its contract would be worth less than the goat skin it is written on. Uncle Sara and John Bull decline o be a paity, naturally enough. What next? Perd caris is not exactly a Charlie Hoes, and the brigand chief must either return him or kill him as there in no alternative. The prisoner writes roBeatte letters to his friends, how he and the gentlemanly bandit at to gether, sleep to 'ether, and play crib-. bage together, and have a good time generally. But :t is thought at the State Department that these amenities of the subtle Arab shiek do not facili tate the solution of the proolem. Very likely the gracious entertainer may within a week send into Tangier one of his gucBt's ears on a stick as a hint and a reminder. Moreover it ia strongly suspected tbat tbe prisoner's letters are censored or euiud or at least that they are diplomatic. On Tuesday Levi Z. Leiter was laid to rest here in tbe receiving vault of Rock Creek Cemetery. There was a van-load of flowers, but the elaborate ceremony which had been planned was greatly simplified byMrB. Leiter, in accordance with her husband's well known taste. Leiter was born near Antietain in Mary, land barely seventy years ago. He w;;i happy when he got a poui'iuu i cier'X in a grocery Btore at $3 a week. Here he plodded until he was twenty, when he went to Ohio at double the Balary and then to Chicago. He was so thrifty that in ten years more he became partner of Marshall Field, Potter Palmer, and Farwell. Here he stayed until he was a multi-millionaire, and till the boy who had worked for $3 a week waa aole to lose fl0,0C3,000 in the wheat pit in 1897 and scap3 with twice as much more. He was a man ot plain tastes, who loved his friends but despised the hollow sham "hich is called "society." Mrs. Leiter was ambitious for herself and her sons and daughters in this very di rection. She marched to the head of the Chicago aristocracy, that . is the noveiiux riches. Then the Letters came ti Washington and stormed the exclu sive castles here. They bought the great house which bas made James G. Blaine poor, and carried on an elaborate social campaign. On Dupont Oircle they reared an elaborate palace of white brick and marble whither "society" flocked. In England George N. Curzon a member of a historical family, met and won th" eldest daughter, Miss Mary Leiter, who had been the greatest belle of this caiitat. She gave him a million dollars and pushed him upward to the throne of the Viceroy of India. As Vic ereine Lady Curzon passed to the bead of Anglo Haxon (society receiving native pnnrs with legal ceremonies.
