All day 8unUy people were coining into
the city and Hunday night many nlet in
the coriidora of the Law I Ultice buililiug,
buing unable to obtain arcoinaiodalious
iuioa n. The doors of the ollice were
open at 0 o'clock and the throng rushed
lu, but their eagpruebS availed them
noib.ng as the filing were m de eimul-lanMiii-ly
and nu one Was given the
choice over another. Though the filings
were made promptly, the w.rk ran far
into the afternoon, and 244 receipts were
isnued Iroiii the ollice for tl tilings al
lowed. Heoeiver Heorge W. Uiiiee was
burj taking in the money lor entry and
during the day received nearly fw'OOO.
Out ol the whole township there were
only S1M0 acre not taken, leaving 18, HW
acre tiled on.
Down in the Lincoln County cleik'e
ollice in Toledo, squatters were filing ami
involving themselves in no end ol trou
ble, a every one ol the tilings made there
will be in conflict with tilings allowed by
the land otlice. In addition to these
conflicts, there were 17 aeitiers whose
claims conflicted, and all of these muat
be sell led fy contest to determine the
real entrymen. unlesa I hey are other iee
adjusted, which does not seem probable.
1'ne seventeen settler in coutliul are as

Over three-fourths of the tilings made
Monday were by squatters, some of whom
iisvtfbeeo living on the land lor several
years. A large majoniy of the squatters
will take advantage of the commutation
law, and, after a residence of 14 months
upon the land, will make final prool by
' paying f 1.50 an acre. Tins price is 2b
cents an acre more than is usually
charged for commuted homesteads. But
the land embraced in ttie Silelz reserva
tion, while taken as homestead land, is
leally timber land, but the timber laws
do not apply to land in the reservation.
One settler Htated Monday that some of
the claim were so valuable and the tim
ber on them so extensive that it would
cut fully l'.'.UOH OUO feet. The east boun
dary of the township is also the east
boundary of the Silelx reservation.
Squatters have a three month prefer
ence ria-ht on the land after Monday.
The section in conflict are 3, 14, L'2, 28,

This lint covers all of the claims which
were in conflict Monday.
IIUCk'MR WAS TKEAUIEROUS.
But He Worked Ills Uame and Success
fully Contested a Claim.
A decision was haoded down ednes-
day from the General Land Office over
ruling the local office in the contest of
W. L. Buckner vs. John J. Calvin and
On September 27, 1900, Calvin filed a
homestead entry on 100 acres of land
near Goble, Oregon. In March of
the following year he tiled his relinquish
ment of the entry and Miller filed an en
try upon the land. Fifteen days prior to
the relinquishment Buckner filed a con
test, alleging that Calvin took the claim
on speculation and that he did not in
tend to made it a home ; that it was more
valuable for timber than (or agricultural
purposes; that Calvin offered his relin
quishment for sale for $1500 and later of
ferred it (or f 500 ; that he took it to sell
it lor it limber and not to make it a
home. The Register and Receiver sus
tained the entrymen and dismissed the
contest and in their decision said:
It is not charged and not shown in the
testimony that as to residence and culti
vation the reqniremems of the home
stead law have not been met by the cou
testee. While th re is considerable tes
timony to the effect that the entryman,
after tiaving made Ids entry, became
convinced that the land was more valua
ble for its timber than for agricultural
purposes and that in trying to dispose of
his interest in bis claim he laid special
stress upon the value of the timlier upon
it, there is not a particle of testimony to
show that the entry, at its initiation,
was speculative or that the claim was
not taken originally as a homestead in
The suggestion that the claim was orig
inally entered solely for its timber is a
mere inference based upon something
which happened long a'ter the entry was
made. The testimony shows that the
laud has value for agricultural purposes,
and that it might have been filed upon
originally, a a homestead, in good faith.
In the absence of positive proof we can
not assume that the entry was specula
tive. Commission Hermann, of the General
Land Otlice, was appealed to, and in his
reversal of the decision of the Register
and Receiver, says :
The evidence shows that at the time of
entry Galvin was living at Washougal,
where he owned a farm of about 100
acres, which was mortgaged to the
amount of $000. His stock, after entry,
was placed in the care of a neighbor,
with the understanding that he was to
keep it for 14 months, the time be would
have to remain on the land before he
could commute his entry, when he would
be able to make other arrangements.
On March 3, 1901, the following adver
tisement appeared in the Sunday Orego
nian: "For sale or trade Homestead
Improvements, about 10,000,000 feet of
timber on it." Galvin admitted that he
had inserted this for publication. - Buck
ner' brother wanted a homestead and
had several interviews with Galvin, who
told him that he was negotiating with
other parties, and their conference came
It is (ound, notwithstanding that Gal
vin bad complied with the law as to resi
dence and cultivation, it appearing that
his intention and purpose at the time he
made his entry was to live on the land
only 14 months and cemmute bis entry.
It must therefore be held that his entry
was speculative and that the contestant
has established the truth ol lus charge.
Miller's entry is therefore held for can
cellation. It is quite proper to note that
the deceit and treachery of the contest
ant, in his dealings with Galvin, is quite
apparent. It was an error to allow Mil
ler to enter the land pending iiiu tner s
pontes'. But this doe not affect the
case on its merits, nor can it cause any
real trouble. Miller having been made
a party to the contest, his entry can be
as easily cancelled as Galvin's, if it now
covered the land.

P. C. & 0. STRIKE
Committees Make a Statement
To the rnblif.
JiATl'RE OF TERMS AGRI.E0 IT0S
Road Is Sow In Ilarnion'ous Opr ration
and So Friction ExlN Itttwern
Company and EmplojM.
People in this city and along the route
of the Oregon Water Power A Railway
Company's elecric line have been clam
oring for the facts concerning the terms
of settlement of the strike acainst the)
Portland City & Oregon Railway Com
pany, w hich was brought to a close two
weeks ago through the agency and good
otfice of committees from Oregon City
and Milwaokie. The committees have
accordingly made a clear ami concise'
statement regarding the conditions of
settlement. The road is being operated
harmoniously and no friction now rxt4
between the otlice rs and employes. A
better feeling now prevails than has ex
isted since the old Eat Side Railway
waa taken from Receiver Maxwell's
bands. '' ' .
The statement to the public is as'
The result of the strike waa not a
victory for either side, concessions being
made by boih parties. Mr. Morris, the
corporation treasurer, took the com
pany's side of the case in his own hand,
holding the jost and common sense view
that his company was not seeking to win
a battle or gain a victory, but simply to
do right, and that any just cause of com
plaint either by the workmen or the offi
cer would be removed if possible. Mr.
Morris stated that Ins olhce waa always
open and that he was always ready to
hear and redress any just complaint on
the part of employes, whether others
or workmen, and whether presented by
individuals or committees, and further,
that no discrimination woold ever be
made against such men In his employ.
Messrs. Dimick, Workman, West, Neu
del and Roberts, of the union committee,
were equally reasonable on behalf of the
einnloves. Some said that if Mr. Mor
ris' views bad been understood in the
beginning and they had dealt directly
with him, they thought there wonld have
been no strike.
It waa finally agreed that no one should
be refused employment on account of the
strike or the grievance, or its presenta
tion by the committee. There was objec
tion to nofexceeding live. men;, bat not
on account of their part in the srtike or
committee or nnion work. These men
were not named publicly, but every man
at the meeting of the union said that if
he was one of the five be wonld not stand
in the way of settlement, but would take
his clearauce card, which would be freely
given by the company. Mr. Morris said
the train dispatcher had resigned some
lime ago, which they agreed removed
that question from consideration. The
men agreed. not to press their complaint
against the superintendent. The only
question remaining was the relative
ranking of the old niotormen and con
ductors with those who were not mem
bers of the uuioD-and did not go out, and
the new men. .This was comparatively
small matter and it was sgieed that with
Mr. Morris' influence, it should be so ar
ranged that the old employee should
have practically the same numbers as at
the beginning of the trouble. All parties
present seemed to be very much pleased
with the settlement and our committee
trusts that the spirit of fairness shown by
Mr. Morris will aid in making a friendly
feeling between the corporation and its
In conclusion we suggest to organized
labor and organized employers that if
they will respectively ask for a confer
ence and investigation of their demands
when there is-a difference, before pre
senting an ultimatum, they may open
reach a peaceable settlement that is just
to both parties ; but where notice is served
that certain demands must be complied
with before a fixed date, it shuts otf any
chance oi investigation or agreement,
and leaves no room for anything but in
dustrial war. '
We also suggest that if the aggrieved
party presenting the claim will employ
counsel before the difficulty reaches an
acute stage, as they would in other busi
ness of equal importance, instead of wait
ing until both sides are weary of contest,
it might often help to avoid trouble, as
well as great loss and inconvenience to
the public. Respectfully yours,
