IAWTON. Or., May 5. Two months ago
the only building at the Junction of Clear
and Granite creeks -was a log cabin 10x12
feet, owned by Ed Benson and built in the
days tvhen the creeks swarmed with
placer miners. Now the site Is occupied
by the rapidly growing town of Lawton.
The survey of the townslte was completed
March 10. Three feet of snow covered the
ground while surveying was in progress.
J. McCarthy completed the first building
February 25, nearly two weeks before the
town was laid out. Lawton now has 15
business buildings under way or ncaring
completion. Besides there are several
tents that are used for business and dwell
ings. Home-bulldtng has been retarded
because of the scarcity of lumber, the
sawmills giving preference to the orders
of those who are getting ready for busi
ness. Rough lumber is held at J14 P
thousand feet, and No. 1 flooring, kiln
dried, at $30. Between $30,000 and $25,000
has been Invested in buildings in two
months. If present plans are carried out
many more buildings will be erected dur
ing the Spring and Summer. Thirty-seven
lots have been sold on Spokane avenue,
the purchaser Jin each case agreeing to
build within three months. Performance
of this clause of the contract depends
upon whether the growth of the town will
Justify further building.
Much work will be done this Summer to
beautify the town. Spokane avenue will
be graveled its entire length. Clear
Creek will be moved 400 feet to its original
channel, from which It was diverted years
ago by the placer miners. About 1200 feet
nest of town and 300 feet above it. In the
hll's. Is a lake, which Is available for
water supply. Electric lights and munici
pal organization will probably come In
the Fall.
Lawton will draw Its trade from the
mining properties, which are at its doors.
The O. It group Is on'y half a mile away.
Sam Wilson, who discovered It. considers
It one of the best free-milling gold prop
erties he eve- saw. The May Queen
group is 1 miles distant. It adjoins the
Red Boy. Amalgamation tests made at
Denver and Sumpter have returned an
average value of $S per ton, and it is con
servatively estimated that there is $S00.
COO worth of ore In sight. The famous
Red Boy, destined to be one of the
greatest mines In the world. Is within
two milcr. the Concord 2 miles, and the
Cougar, which is putting up a 250-ton
cjanlde plant. 2 miles. Close by are
the Chelan, the Brutus group, the Gray
Engle. the Red Mountain group of 12
ctaims, and many other promising prop
erties. Lawton Is thro miles down Granite
Crock from the thriving town of Granite.
A good wagon road, level for the most
part.- except the hill at Granite, connect?
the two towns. There are foot brldgei
across the creeks for pedestrians. Law
ton's elevation Is -1500 feet, and Its popu
lation between 100 and 150.
Proposal to Give a Wider Definition
to the Term "Public Use."
GRANT'S PASS, Or., May 4. (To tho
EdI or.) The Orcgonian recently advised
the rejection of all the proposed consti
tutional amendments, that arc 10 be voted
upon at the ensuing election. "While con
servatism is advisable In proposing to
change the organic law of the sta e, when
it is advocated in a wholesale manner. It
is in some particulars liable to error on
the ultra side.
The people of Southern and Eastern Ore
gon are interested In and desire one of
the amendments that will affect only those
parts of the state to any appreclab.e ex
tent. For this reason the poslt.on of The
Oregonian Is to be regretted, as it may
defeat It by the Influence It wields in
Portland and the WUamette Valley,
where the amendment, because of natural
conditions, -will seldom be called into
The amendment is the proposed artic.e
XIX, known as the irrlgat on amendment.
Under the constitution as It now Is, the
right of v.ay across private lands for
water ditches cannot be procured unless
the ditch Is to be constructed with the
purpose of supplying water to the pubic
While this would not prevent the con
struction of canals for irrigation in many
localities. It Is an effectual bar to the
construction of mining ditches. Hydrau.
ic mining requires large quantities of
watcr,.and such mines can not have too
much, and many can only be profitably
operated with ast supply. For that rea
son the ditches must bs constructed often
to carry all the stream will supply. Go.d
bearing deposits o'f gravel are not found In
continuous deposits over the country, but,
are scattering, so that the water from)
one stream will not be availab e for more
than one or two mines. Under such con
ditions the construction of a ditch for
mining will be a private enterprise. South
ern Oregon Is traversed by streams that
flow for the most part through moun
tains, and along them are small vallejs
containing good agricultural land, but the
long, drj Summers make Irrigation neces
sary to successful farming. Many o!
these streams in the dry season afford
water for but few farms, and the use of
the water would be limited to few. Irri
gation Is only beginning, but In several
Instances It promoters have found diffi
culty because owners of land have refused
to grant right of way except for an ex
orbitant price. The Oregon & California
Railroad Company has received deeds
from the Government for thousands of
acres, which can Te purchased for $2 or.
$3 an acre. By buying a few acres along
a stream the construction of ditches for
mining can be prevented. This has been
the experience of more than one mining
company. There are several laws hereto
fore enacted bearing on this question, that
can only be invoked when the right of
eminent domain is to be exercised for a
public use. The determination of the
character of a ut.e now rests with the
courts under known and established prin
ciples, which are such as to deny the
right of eminent domain except for a use
that is. plainly public For this reason a
change In the organic law is necassary.
Without It. the development of hydraulic
mining and irrigation will be retarded,
and those engaged in It will be subjected
to extortionate demands. Provisions of the
same import as proposed article XIX are
found in the constitutions of Colorado,
Idaho. Montana and Wyoming. In other
states the courts have given the same
results by declaring mining to be a pub
lic utility, but the better reasoning Is that
mining Is a private industry.
The location of mines Is fixed by the laws
of Nature, and are often found in places
almost Inaccessible. There may be but
one route "by which water can beconvejed
to thorn, or by which the water may be
carried away. It has happened that In
dividuals by securing title to worthier
lands or by making mining locations,
have been able, by unreasonably refusing
to part with their worthless lands or
mining claims for a just and fair compen
sation, which capital is always wlll'ng to
give without litigation, to embarrass and
defeat important mining enterprises. In
several Instances individuals owning land
bordering upon streams have enjoined the
working of mines, and refused to sell a
right of way across their lands for a
flume which would carry off the sllckens ! u TTWnCD""CI IDDf-MfZ
Into unnavlgable streams without injury. I LfcUAL I LlSU tK JUr Ktlll t
Capital seeking investment In extensive J
mining enterprises inquires always regard-
Ing the Drlvileges afforded bv tht 1tc-l !
The development of the mining resources
of this state can be facilitated by the
same constitutional provisions that have,
been adopted of necessity in the mining
states of the Rocky Mountains. As prop
erty cannot be taken without just com
pensation, and courts and Juries always
Incline in favor of the landowner, the
adoption of the amendment will not be op
pressive. As a plain business proposition, and
one which will aid the mining, manu
facturing and agricultural Interests, I sin
cerely hope that. Instead of condemning.
The Oregonian will urge Its adoption.

NELSON, B. C., May 2. To the Ed
itor.) Inclosed beg to hand you a recent
dispatch taken from the Chicago Record,
though it may have already appeared In
your paper. My reason lor drawing par
ticular attention to It is because It bears
more or less on ihe queet'on of good re

ica and Great Britain.
I left Oregon about three months ago
and know while there an Incessant .fusil
lade was kept up in the columns of The
Oregonian by Boerltes. since which I do
not know if it has subsided; but my par
ticular point Is this: Having many friends
in America and quite a few In Heppner,
Salem, Chemawa and Portland, with
whom many verbal arguments were held.

PORTLAND. May 6. (To the Editor.)
In your issue of Saturday, April 2S. un
der -the title, '"Smith on the Precious
Metals," I find the following remarkable
editorial statement:
Mr. Smith's reason whr the sliver dollar,
passes for a dollar today Is equally erroneous,
lie attributes It to the legal-tender quality Im
ported by law. This Is not the reason, as the
vicissitudes of the legal-tender greenback be
tween 1800 and 1870 might have suggested to
Hr. Smith. The real reason Is the cumbrous
and expensive machinery maintained by the

America later on might find she had a
Boer question herself on hand In South
America and that the Germans would
make a dash for that country.
The Inclosed article bears out my state
ment, and am very glad to have Its au
thority to bring before my friends as
many of them, too, I admit saw such
could happen, and confessed that It was
best for the two great English-speaking
powers to be on thoroughly good terms.

it at all, to thinking, that much good will
have been done. J. E. HALTON.

"Washington, April 20. The public should
be prepared for frequent news like that
wh'ch comets through the press dispatches
from Brazil about a movement to estab
lish German sovereignty In the eouthern
part of that republic Many years ago
Emperor Dom 1'cdro, for the establish
ment of a German colony, made a grant
of several mJllon acres of kind In Rio
Grande do Sul, which has the best cli
mate, the best pastures, the most fertile
(soil and the greatest advantages for Im
migrants of any part of Brazil, it has
grown and prospered until It Is now the
most progressive and the wealthiest por
tion of the republic. Including several
hundred thousand Germans, and the
number Is Increasing rapidly. They have
never bothered about politics, but have
minded their own business and made
money. Occasionally, however, their na
tional characteristics have been displayed
when local affairs did not go to suit
them, as well as an apprehension lest
their love of Independence might ultimate
ly Imperil the authority of the govern
ment. About two years ago, I think It
was, a serious riot broke out In Rio
Grande do Sul because the German Hag
wais holeted on. the government building
In recognition of the Emperor's blrthday
or some other anniversary. The Brazil
ians made a great fuss about It, and the
two races came Into collision. The Brazil
ian Government prudently preferred to Ig
nore the Incident rather than run the risk
of trouble with a young gentleman who
lives In the palace at Potsdam. There
was. however, a free discussion In the
newspapers of both countries, and a semi
official organ at Hamburg or Bremen pub
lished a significant editorial, dcclarng
that the next time -the German flag was
hoisted In Rio Grande do Sul It would
not be hauled down. During the discus
sion of this Incident, It was developed that
16,000 young Germans were enrolled In
schuetzen corps and other military com
pan'es and fully armed. This was dis
cussed as a menace to the peace of
Brazil, but the government did not take
official notice of the matter.
If It Is true as reported, that the Ger
mans are Importing Krupp guns and
Mauser rifles into TUo Grande do Sul. It
Is evident that their shooting clubs and
singing societies and other soc al organ
izations that have been under military
drill and discipline Jre getting ready for
business, and there will be great alarm

claimed that the prov.nce of Rio Grande

Government, so that all forms of our currency
jnay be exchanged for gold. If there was no
way in which the silver dollar could be con
verted, directly or lndlrectlv. Into gold, no
lgal-tender laws, even with capital penalties,
could prevent Its descent to Its bullion value.
Mr. Smith Is right. You are, as usual
on thus subject. In error, as the unim
peachable facts of our financial legislation
show. Until the enactment of the gold
standard bill, December, 1859. there was
no "cumbrous and expensive machinery
maintained by the Government" or pro
vided by law to maintain the parity of the
silver dollar except legal tender. There
was no law authorizing or directing the
Secretary of the Treasury, or any other
officer of the Government, to redeem silver
dollars In gold dollars. True, the .Secre
tary was commanded to issue silver certifi
cates for silver dollars. But then these
certificates .were redeemable In these
same silver dollars only not in
gold dollars. I do not believe you
will put your reputation to hazard by de
nying these facts. If so, I will quote offi
cial reports. Yet, notwithstanding these
unimpeachable facts, silver dollars were
always at par with gold. The law of 1S73
discontinued the coinage of the standard
silver dollar. The law of 1S78. Bland-AHI-son
act, provided for the coinage of not
more than 4.0CO.000 nor less than 2.000.CO0
silver dollars per month. The law clothed
them with full legal tender, "except where
otherwise expressly stipulated In the con
tract." This was a discredit placed by
law on the sliver dollar that Is not put
on the gold dollar, for no man can write
a legal contract against gold dollars. Still,
with" this legal disability placed on them
purposely to discredit them, and without
any law requiring them to be redeemed
In gold, hundreds of millions of these
sliver dollars, coined from 1STS to 1S93. 21
Jyears. were always at par with gold dol
lars. Vhy7 There can be but one answeri
Legal tender. Tbo Government that
Issued them did not repudiate them. They
were a legal tender for all taxes, rtate
and National even at the Custom-House
the same as gold coin; for all debts, public
as well as private. Including the redemp
tion of the greenbacks and payment of
all bonds of the United states. There
was only one exception "where otherwise
expressly stipulated In the contract." I
lay down this proposition: From the or
ganization of this Government 1792 until
now, 108 years, no money made and kept
a full legal tender by law of Congress
ever fell below par. Don't dodge. Answer
square from the shoulder. If there Is
such a historical record, point It out. I
believe legal tender never has and never
can fall until the Government Itself be
gins to fall. The reason Is not far to
search, nor difficult for the merest tyro
to comprehend. If you have a dollar that
will pay all debts, and all taxes, state and
National, Including custom duties, you
will not discount it, even 1 per cent, to
get another kind of dollar that will do no
You" refer to the "vicissitudes of the
legal-tender greenback between 1S60 and
1S79" as an example of the failure of legal"
tender. Yet you know that there were two
exception clauses on the gresnbacks. Th.y
were not legal tender for "Interest on the
public debt": neither would the Govern
ment Itself, that issued them, receive them
for custom dues thus repudiating Its
own child. In" the language of Thad
Stevens, the Government thus "declared
them depreciated before it Issued them."
The depreclat-on of the greenbacks and
the credit of the Government was the
deliberate and premeditated purpose of
the bankers, brokers and gold gamblers
the "unanried rebels of the loyal states"
is the Secretary of the Treasury, Mc
Cullocn, In his report, 1SG5. called them. So
they Induced Congress to discredit the
greenback by withholding legal tender, for dues, and Interest on the public
debt. So those who had greenback dollars
that would not go at the Custom-House,
and owing a debt there, were forced to
exchange and discount their dollars to
get dollars that were a legal tender there.
trade dollars, and made them circulate at
par, can again confer full legal power on
them and cause them to circulate at par
now? Of course you know this. These
coins are but dead metal now, and the
merchant and debtor would refuse them
today. Let Congress clothe them with
full legal tender tomorrow and all would
readily receive them at par "Why? Be
cause they would then be money. "Legal
tender is the essence of money." With
draw the soul, the body Is dead Is
but Inanimate clay. "Withdraw legal ten
der, express or Implied, from gold coins
and they are dead coins, mere metal,
without life, without power, are no longer
money, occause demonetized, and will rap
Idly go out of circulation, as did" the
trade dollar. Then, If Congress should
clothe its own greenbacks, National bank
notes, or sliver coins, with full legal power
and sufficiently limit the volume, you could
buy a $20 gold coin for W0. or $3. In paper
or silver. Such Is the power of legal ten
der coupled with limitation of volume.
Every statement you make In the above
extract Is faulty. The real reason why
the silver dollar passed at par was be
cause of Its legal power, and not because
It was redeemable In gold, -before 1S93.
The two excentlons on the ereenhnrk niffl-
.clently account for its "vicissitudes from
ibw to 1S7S. The cumbrous and expen
sive machjnery maintained by the Gov
ernment" to keep all forms of money at
parity. Is wholly unnecessary. Simple,
Inexpensive, full legal tender Is amply
sufficient That will not fall unless the
Government totters to Its fall. Then we
can all go out of business.

than they are repaired, not only the
brain and nerves, but "every vital
organ of the body cries out for help.
Headaches, neuralgia, heart disease,
nervouj dyspepsia and liver and kid-
Bey troubles run rampant in the help
leas system, destroying vrhatever

Important; organs into harmony ai

"About seven years ago I Tras all run dovl
with nervousness and heart trouble and was ,
