cultural purxullH. The land is of a moun
tainous character and abound with some
of the rluheat timber in Oregon. It is
estimated that there are at leaat 20 sec
tions in the ii.VflO acrea that will produce
from 6.000.000 to 10.01)0.000 feet of the fin
est quality of lumber for which the coast
r glon ia noted. In addition to the exten
sive foseata, there are hundreda of acrea
uf splendid grazing lands especially suited
for the dairy Industry, which is largely
followed in the country surrounding the
reservation. Much of the land Is cov
ered by burned timber and underbrush
that can be cleared easily and converted
Into valuable agricultural lands.
The bids will be opened at 1 o'clock p.
tn. Monday, August 8. After being prop
erly endorsed, they will be forwarded to
I'.ie commissioner of the geniyal land
office, who will announce the successful
Ily the conditions under which the sale
of these lands is to be had. it is stipu
lated that no bid will be accepted at a
less rate than $1. 26 an acre, and the sale
must bring the government at least S28,
500. It is required that individual bida
must be submitted for each tract. If the
aggregate of the bids for these separate
tracts does not exceed a bid that may be
made by a single person or corporation
for the entire tract of 26.000 acres, there
by the ie, ms of the sale, a single specu
lator will acquire the title to all the lands
embraced In the tract. Such a result Is
liable to attend the sale of these lands.
It will be natural that the individual
bidder will select the moat desirable
tracts. Few blda, If any, on other leas
valuable tracta will be offered, and herein
Ilea the opportunity for a single Individ
ual or corporation of a speculative turn
of mind to so manipulate his bids as to
acquire the title to the entire tract, which
embraces some valuable timber lands.
By making a rough bid of $28,500 or
129.000 for the 26.000 acrea. It la not im
probable that the offer will exceed the
aggregate of the bids that may be made
for Individual tracts, and thus the specu
lator, under the conditions of the sale,
may become the purchaser of all of the
lands to the exclusion of honest home
seekers whose strife for the most desir
able tracts may cost them all the oppor
tunity of becoming the possessors of some
of Oregon's most valuable lands.
In bidding for these lands, the bidder
must bid on Depurate tracts. There are
In the 26.000 acres about 190 tracts that
range from 40 to ITS acres each. The of
fers for each tract are kept separate and

DECISIVE BATTLE IN PROGRESS.
Important Engagement Between Japanaas
and Ruaalana at Port Arthur.
Toklo, August S (noon). After two
days' fighting General Kurokl baa de-
feated the Russian forces In two separate
actions fought at Tushullkiu and the
Ht. Petersburg. Aug. 2 (4:60 a. m
A report from an apparently reliable
source late last night was to the effect
that J.-neral Kuropatkln's main force had
been rapidly moving north for aeveral
According to this report no troops pro
ceeding to the front from Russia had gone
past H irbln In the past three daya. They
will be detained there and every avail
able piece of rolling stock will be rushed
south empty for the removing of troop
at Uao Vang and other points to the
northward, leaving a skeleton force to
contest the Japanese advance on vital
If It la true, as pointed out In the fore
going, it leuvea the Russian forces tn an
exceedingly serloua position.'1 Lacking
definite information, and if the Ruaalan
information haa not been broken by the
capture of Blmoucheng, the authorities
here say that if Kuropatkln accepts a
general engagement, they believe that
it will occur near Anachantahan, half way
between Halchcng and Liao Tang. In
which case the Halcheng force will fail
hack on the Blmoucheng force under Gen
eral Mltachensko, -on the northward road
to YanzallQ, which la already fortified,
with a view to such a contingency.
Yanzalin would then become the ad
vanced position for Anschantschan, the
natural atrength of which Is known by
the fact that It was the only position the
Chinese successfully defended against the
Japanese. It la possible that If Stmou-
cheng is evacuated It may be In pursuance
of the above plan and it Is also possible
in this case that General Stakelberg may
get away north, but in any case his re
treat with General Oku banging to his
rear, must be a difficult operation, even
with the railway to help him.
General Kuropatkln's report of yester
day only carried the fighting up to Sunday
night, when the Russians had been driven
in from the left flank of the Blmoucheng
position. The Russians had repelled sev
eral attacks and one bayonet charge, in
which there was a desperate hand-to-hand
light at Kangwak Heights. Else
where the Russians are reported to be
holding their own. ,
General Kuropatkln's reports gave no
ilguiea of the two days' lighting. The
main position of the attack seems to have
been by the artillery, the favorite arm of
There was the greatest hope of further
news from Rusian sources regarding the
progtets of today's battle. Crowds hung
around the bulletin boards until 2 a. m.,
and finally dispersed disappointed.
The only real news of the day's results
was contained in the brief dispatch to
the Associated Press from Haicheng, Died

Did Not Take Port Arthur.
Cheefoo, Aug. 3, 11 a. tn. A desperate
three-days' assault on the inner defenses
on the northern and eastern sides of Port
Arthur has failed, according to advices
brought here by two Junks which arrived
A Russian who escaped from Port Ar
thur via Pigeon Bay the night of July
29, states that the earth trembled under
the terrlfTic cannonading which began at
4 a. raj July 26, and ended during the
night of July 23, when the battle ceased.
A Chinese who has arrived here on a
separate junk confirms the Russian's
statement that the Russian killed and
wounded during the assault numbered
between 5000 and 6000.
The Japanese in their repeated assaults
against the eastern forts on the hills
through barbed wire entanglements and
over mines, displayed fanatical bravery.
They were mowed down by the hail of
shells and bullets and the explosion of
mines under their feet. Their losses are
estimated at 20.000.
The Russian declares that the Russians
held all the eastern forts leading to
Golden Hill and that the Japanese, shat
tered and exhausted, retired to the east
ward. As related by the passengers of the two
Junks, the Japanese advance, which began
from Kwokau before daybreak July 26,
was directed against Klkwan, Kinkitun,
Klnklshan and Pchtoushan forts, lying
near shore. . The Russian outposts mere
driven back. In the meantime Admiral
Togo shelled the forts at long range, but
the return Are of the forts kept his ships
at a safe distance, rendering the co-operation
of the fleet Ineffective.
On the morning of July 27, the Russian
fleet steamed out, keeping under the pro
tection of the Golden Hill guns. The
Russian vessels did not fire on the Jap
anese, and soon returned to their anchor
age. The assault on the northern side of the
city occurred July 27. The Japanese left
at Hsikau advanced on the Russians at
Shlnshl Ylng. but were repulsed.
The junks were within hearing distance
for three days after leaving, but no more
firing was heard.
The Russian hospitals at Port Arthur
are said to be swamped. Thousands of
wounded are lying In houses and shops
of the Chinese, the owners having been
evicted, with the exception of one, who
acts as caretaker. In each place. Medi

BARBER LAW IS VALID
AUTHORITY OF BOARD IS UPHELD
BY THE COURT.
Members of Berbers' Commission Must
Be Fair and Impartial In
Salem. Oregon, Aug. 1. In an opinion
handed down today the Supreme Court
upholds the validity of the barber exam
iner law. which had been held unconsti
tutional by Judge George, of Multnomah
county. Judge George held the barber
law unconstitutional on the ground that
It delegates tu the board of examiners)
leg,lative authority and that It vests In
them power to issue or withhold licenses
arbitrarily. The Supreme Court holds
that the law la open to neither of thes
The validity of the law Was tested by
a criminal proceeding against H. L.
B.-lgga, who conducted a barber achool In
Portland. Brlgga was found guilty, but
Judgment waa arrested upon motion of
defendant and the state appealed. The
Hupreme Court having reversed the lower
court, the case now goes back for sen
tence to be pasaed upon Brlgga. Judge
George is reversed In an opinion written
hy Justice Bean.
The barber law. pasaed In 1903, define
what shall constitute the occupation of a
barber; provides for the appointment ol
a board of examiners; defines the powers
and duties of the board, among which la)
"to make such by-laws as It may deem
necessary, not Inconsistent with the con
stitution of this state or with the pro
vlslona of thia act. and shall prescribe the
qualitlcattona of a barber In this state;"
declares that It shall be unlawful for any
person, not registered, to practice tha
business of a barber or conduct a barber
shop or barber school without the sanc
tion of the board, and provides a penalty
for violation of its provisions.
Upon the first objection to the validity
of the barber law the Supreme Court saya
that "In the regulating and licensing of
tradea. etc.. which afreet the public wel
fare, the legislature must enact the law
necessary to accomplish the object In
view, but it may be carried Into execu
tion by some officer or board appointed
for that purpose, and such officer or board
may be authorized to prescribe the quail
Acations of those desiring to follow such
callings or professions."
After citing numerous cases in tha
courts of other states, the opinion saya
that the provision of the barber law rest
ing authority in the board of examiners
to prescribe the qualifications of a barbs
is not a delegation of legislative power,
but a delegation ol the administrative
power to prescribe the quantifications of
persons who shall be licensed to practlc
a given trade or profession.
Upon the other objection that the law
confers upon the board of barber examin
ers power to prescribe varying standards
of qualifications for different applicants,
or arbitrarily to grant or refuse a license
at will, the court says: "The board la
required to exercise the power by pre
scribing fair and reasonable qualifications
appropriate to the calling Intended to b
regulated, operating generally and Impar
tially upon all In like situations, and there
is no pretense that It haa not done so. If
it should act arbitrarily or oppressively
its conduct might call for a remedy
against the members of the board, but
it would not furnish a ground for declar
ing the act Invalid.
"The constitutionality of a law la to b
determined by Its provisions, an not by
the manner in which it may be admin
istered, and unless It conflicts with the
constitution the law is valid. . . It
must be presumed that the board will
exercise fairly and Impartially the powers

Wm. Kirmse, a member of the bridge
gang working near Llttleport, was taken
suddenly ill Thursday night with cramps
and a kind of cholera. His case was so
severe that he had to have the members
of the crew wait upon him and Mr. Glfford
was called and consulted. He told them
he had a medicine In the form of Cham
berlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy that he thought would help him
out. and accordingly several doses were
administered with the result that tha

A few nights ago some unprincipled
sneak-thieves entered the yard at the
home of Dr. George Hoeye. on Water
street, and despoiled the flower beds,
stealing a great number of the very choic
est flowers. Mrs. Hoeye decided to keep
a close watch, thinking possibly the pil
ferers might return at another time. Bbe
was not surprised a few days later to see
two young girls enter a neighboring yard,
the family being out of the city, and pro
ceed to annex all of the Cowers In sight.
Mrs. Hoeye directly charged the tws
youthful flower thieves that she had seen
them in her yard a few days before en
gaged In the same kind of work. She waa
surprised to have the two girls confess)
that they bad. at the same time Impli
cating others of their companions. A
flower thief Is an Intolerable "cuss." Too
lazy to grow flowers at his own home, be
la too Inconsiderate of bis neighbors to
permit them to enjoy the benefit that tha
raising of beautiful plants affords.
