tune ago tiled contests againat about
ninety of these claims but the depart
blent of the Interior lias decided ad
versely in about flftv, leaving forty cases
now pending at Washington. Junior
eoniesls were aubseiuenlly brought
sitainxt many ol these cla ins by (i. O.
Nolan and W. J. Law and the same have
nt been derided. Howell auks tliat the

meantime no decree in favor ol any of

llowell has prepared a printed form in
which are set forth allegations of con
spiracy and col 1 11 -lion between the parties
w ho have figured in the contests np to
the present lime in an alleged effort to
defraud the government of these valuable
limber lands. The contestant alleges
lhat in each of the 82 eases, the entry
made was fraudulent, collusive and spec
ulative and not 111 good faith, that the
entrvman never went upon said land
prior to making hjs entry nor did he per
sonally examine the land as required by
law; lhat the said entry man, "belote
making application, conspired with one
Claude Thayer, Maurice Leach, Clark
Ifadley, Georne Colin et al to fraudulent
obtaiu title to the land described and to
divide the proceeds of the said land and
that the application was made in pursu
ance of such conspiracy with said parties
above named ;" that the eniryman
knowingly and fraudulently subscribed
lo the required allidavit and iu doing so
committed a fraud against the govern
ment. Continuing the contestant says: "Affi
ant further alleues that one C. E. Hayes

described and that said contests were

"That all the pretended contests filed

MAY INJURE PRUNE CROP.
Contliiu'd Cold Kalns and Backward
Weather Will Do Damage.
County Clerk F. A. Sleight visited hiB
farm near Canby Sunday and reports
prospects very bright for a prolific prune
crop. Mr. Height has a 17 acrj prune
on-hard in the Canbv neighborhood,
where there are over 21 K) acres of this
fruit. He brought with him a small
branch from one of his Italian trees that
is loided with fruit. Prune growers are
fearful of the consequences if the pres
ent backward, cold, rainy weather con
tinues for any length of time, for it is
damaging to the growing crop. Orchard
iaia claim lh.t tbia wxjjher iu'errupts
the flow of sap in the trees and arrests
the development of the fruit, which
never attains its proper urowth. Exten
sive damage resulted to the prune crop
two years ago in this section from tine
very same cause.

iJll) lllrjlll lAltl
f larkama County Denies Negli
gence In Smallpox Cases.
Has Sever Failed T I reperly Treat
The Malady Whenever Xotlfled
Of IU Existence.
The sttempt of the officers of the Mult
nomah county board of health to place
the blame for the existence of some Iso
lated cases of smallpox in ihiscoumy en
tirely to the officers of Clackamas county
is not right. Exception is taken by the
Clackamas county physicians to the
s'atementa ami representations of the
Multnomah county health ollicers with
reference lo the smallpox cases in the
vicinity of Sycamore.
"The only notification we have re
ceived of the ex sience of smallpox in
Clackamas county," said Dr. J. W. Pow
ell, who with his partner. Dr. J. W.
Noma, are the county physicians and
health ollicers for Clackamas county,
"was about two weeks ago, when we re
ceived a letter from some person con
nected with the health department of
Multnomah effnnty calling our attention
tothe illness ol young liichey with the
disease. So poorly was the communica
tion written that we were unable to de
cipher the full text of the letter 01 ascer
tain its author. The letter stated, how
ever, that young Richey was being pro
erly quarantined, and that all precau
tion were being exercised to prevent
any spread of the malady. I wrote Dr.
Geary, of the Multnomah county board
of health, requesting continuance of
the -treatment of the Richey case in
Clackamas county, assuming that no
expense for the services would be attach
ed in this county. We heard nothing
further from the Multnomah county au
thorities until last Thursday, when I had
a telegraphic message stating that there
were several cases of smallpox near
Sycamore, and in Clackam a county,
that required attention I proceeded lo
the place at once, but found conditions
other than represented. There have
been not to exceed 20 cases of Ibe dis
ease in this county, and in every in
stance the afllicted bad only mild at
tacks. I learned that the Rock Creek
school, which is located in Jhe midst of
the smallpox district, had not suspended
sessions lor day, and that no pupils,
who had contracted the disease, weie
attending the echo I. Henry Troge, a di
rector of the Kock Cieek school, was the
last patient, and when I visited his place
yesterday I found him shearing sheep.
He will notify us if any other cases de
velop, and all such will be promptly
"Judge Ryan, who, under the law, is
the other member ol the county board f
health, has not been notified of a single
case of the disease, so far as I am in
formed. The section in which the dis
ease has been confined is one of the
most remote parts of the county. Being
contiguous tii Multnomah county, the
I buU of the trade 'and business tiansac-
tionsol the community goes to places in
that county, this city having no direct
means of communication with the in
fested district. In the treatment of
these isolated cases in this county it has .
been the policy of the cdunty authorities
to allow the atiending physician to tieat
the disease if a proper quarantine is
maintained and precautions taken to
prevent all coniagion. Any criticism of
Clackamas county officials .in this con
nection is uncalled for an J unjust. When
notified of any case of smallpox or other
contagious disease, steps have always
been taken immediately to treat the af
flicted and prevent a spread of the ma
lady. The people of the county have
co-operated with the officials at all times
and have used every precaution to ex
terminate the disease."
County Judge Ryan returned to this
city Saturday, having been absent from
the citv for two days in company with
Hon. Bmger Hermann in the interior of
the coi:nty. Judge Ryan is the health
officer of "the county and his attention
was called to the charges of negligence
that had heen preferred by Multnomah
county officials against Clackamas coun
ty officers in the treatment of caees of
smallpox in this county. He said: "At
no time have I ever been noti
fied by any health officer of
Portland, or by any member of the
state board of 'health, that any case
of contagious disease existed in Clacka
mas county. In fact, tbe only notifica
tion I have received of any contagious
disease within the county came Dora
Milwaukie, and was to the effect that
there were a few cases in the vicinity of
Minthorn. I directed the county physi
cian to attend these cases, and they
were all successfully treated. Clackamas
county has never been negligent in this
matter, nor at bo time has this county
failed to treat and exterminate from it
borders any contagious disease that was
known to exist."
