LAND BOARD CAN DECIDE
TJ MAY OR. MAY XOT DECLABS
Decision, In Proceeding; Brought to
Secure Land on Which. Parmcnti
Were Xot Cp to Date.
SALEM, Oct 1. Attorney- General
Blackburn has won the mandamus suit
brought by Dr. C. H. Robertson against
the State Land Board. Robprtson applied
for the purchase of a tract of land in
Wasco County "which had been previously
so&, but upon which the payments of In
terest had not been made when due. The
Statutes provide that if any Installment of
principal or Interest shall remain unpaid
Tor one year after becoming due, the cer
tificate of sale shall be void, and the land
shall be subject to resale as in the first
instance. Robertson held that since the
former purchasers were delinquent more
than one year, the land was subject to re
sale, and that when he filed a proper ap
plication, accompanied by the legal pay
ments of money, the Land Board had no
discretion, but must Issue him a certificate
of sale. The Land Board, however, de
cided that before issuing a- certificate to
Robertson, it would notify the first pur
chasers and give them an opportunity to
pay up the delinquency. Robertson then
began a mandamus proceeding to compel
the Issuance of a certificate of sale, and
Attorney-General Blackburn filed a de
murrer to the writ on the ground that it
did rot state facts sufficient to entitle
Robertson to the relief demanded. The
case was tried on the demurrer, and Judge
Boise sustained the Attorney-General's po
sition, holding that his court has no juris
diction to direct the State Land Board in
a case of that kind.
While the statute heretofore referred to,
section 14, page 160, la-rcs of 1S93. provides
that a certificate of sale shall bo void if
the purchaser becomes delinquent one
year, there are other statutes which have
a "bearing on the controversy. JBy the
act of February 17, 1899, page n, laws
of 1SS9, provision was made whereby hold
ers of certificates of sale could secure a
reduction in interest by paying all ar
rearages of Interest and all but one-third
or the principal. It Is then provided that
"In case the holder of such certificate of
sale shall make the payments herein pro
vided, his note for the remaining one
third of the purchase price shall bear in
terest at C per cent, and, in case the in
terest as paid promptly, shall be permitted
to stand until demand is made by the
Act Under "Which Land Was Held.
The land applied for by Robertson was
held under this act of the Legislature.
While the purchasers had permitted their
interest payments to become delinquent
more than a year, there is no provision
in this act for certificates becoming void
if payments are not made within the year
Those who have paid all except the one
third of the purchase money, under th
act referred to. are in a. different position
from those "who have hought land on the
plan of paying one-fifth each year.
The law under which Judge Boise ren
dered his decision is section 6, of the act
of February IS, 1S99, found on page 15S of
the laws of 1S99, which reads as follows:
"'The State Land Board may ntake rules
for the transaction of business under this
act. They shall meet on the second and
fourth Tuesdays of each month to pass
upon all matters properly coming before
the board for consideration, to hear and
decide all questions about priority of s
tlcment and other disputes between appli
cants; and all their acts and decisions a
to the legal title shall be final as to th
right to a deed from the state."
Dccinon of Board Is Final.
The matter having "been before the
hoard, and the hoard having considered
it and rendered a decision, Judge Bols
holds that the decision Is final and that
the courts can not take action in the
matter. Though one section says that a
certificate of sales shall be void and the
land shall be open for re-sale, if payments
are not made within certain times, another
section leaves it in the power of the
board to disregard the requirements and
to declare the certificate not void, and tnt:
land not subject to resale In other
words, while the statute says that tnt
certificate of sale shall be void under cer
tain conditions, the board may declare
that it is not void under those conditions,
and a subsequent applicant cannot go to
any other tribunal to compel the boaid
to follow the law.
While that question was not before
Judge Boise, it would seem that if a sub
sequent applicant has any remedy at all.
it must be by a suit in equity against the
first applicant after a deed has been Is
sued by the board.
Though the law as it has been construed
by Judge Bol&e leaves the State Land
Board the sole arbiter In state land mat
ters, the decision In this particular case is
clearly In accordance with justice. While
the first purchaser would have no remedy
if the board had declared his certificato
void and had isued a certificate to Rob
ertson, It would be a hardship upon the
first purchaser to be thrown out of pos
session without notice of his delinquency.
The commencement of this suit has
caused a large number of delinquents to
pay up the amounts due, for they are
liable to suffer a forfeiture at any time
the board may so declare.
COSDEMXED BY STOCKMEX.
Harney County Association Opposed
BURNS, Oct. L A meeting of the Har
ney County Livestock Association has just
been held here, at which resolutions were
adopted condemning the leasing of range
lands. The meeting was "well attended by
ranchers and livestock owners. Following
are the resolutions adopted:
"Whereas, a bill is to be introduced in
the next Congress authorizing the Govern
ment to lease the public domain or ranges
of the Western States; and
"Whereas, the land laws now in force
are liberal enough to enable any person
to gain title to all the land sufficient for
all ordinary purposes; and
"Whereas, such a bill, if passed, will
be a dangerous act and detrimental to all
small livestock growers, and also retard
the settlement of our already sparsely,
settled territory; and
"Whereas, such a bill is more liable to
be framed for the benefit of large heep
and cattle syndicates, and enable them
to gain control of all our valuable public
lands; therefore be it
"Resolved, That the Harney County
Livestock Association is emphatically op
posed to any bill being introduced or
passed by Congress authorizing the Gov
ernment to lease or sell any of the public
domain, and that no person shall be al
lowed to own or control any of the pub
lic lands except by the beneficent laws
now on our statutes; and be it further
"Resolved, That the members of the
Harney County Livestock Association will
endeavor, by all honorable means, to de
feat any candidate lor Congress, at our
next election, who shall favor any such
bill, regardless of politics; that a copy
of these resolutions be forwarded to our
members in Congress, to all livestock asso
ciations in Eastern Oregon, to TKe Ore
gonlan, the Harney County papers, and
all public papers elsewhere.
LITTLE WHEAT IS BEIXG 3IOVED.
Farmers About Salem Want More
Than Forty-five Cents.
SALEM, Oct L Wheat is coming into
Salem very slowly, more slowly, in fact,
than for many years heretofore, at
the same season. The price at Salem
is only 45 cents per bushel, and this prob
ably accounts for the disposition of the
farmers to keep their wheat at home.
Ktft many are willing to sell at that
low price, and most of them are able
tp hold their grain for a time. Those
who must have money immediately, sell
only as much wheat as is necessary.
It has "been the rule among farmers
to "haul their grain before the roads
are softened by the Winter rains, and as
a consequence very few have graneries
In which to store their wheat at home.
The roads will now be in good condi
tion for hauling:, and it may be expect
ed that wheat will soon be coming In
The new Capital City Mill, on Trade
and Church streets, is running, but only
in the day time. When wheat becomes
more plentiful It will be operated both
day and night The Salem .Flouring
Mill Company has not yet put machinery
in its new mill, and will not be ready
for grinding until November 1.

Supreme Court Orders.
SALEM, Oct. L In the Supreme Court
today the case of J. J. Hecker, respondent,
vs. the Oregon Railroad & Navigation
Company, appellant, was argued and sub
mitted. IF IT'S A "GARLAND,"
That's all you need to know about a stove
trouble. These pictures represent the faces of millions of women who are suffering today. They suffer in silence, but the lines and crow-tracks
show that pain the pain nearly always caused by "female troubles" is there. Do you expect to suffer the agonies of female ills every month
during your life? If you do suffer, it will be because you choose to suffer. Did you ever stop to consider how little effort you are making to
secure health? Do you really want to be well? No woman has made every effort to gain health, when she has not tried Wine of Cardui.
Female troubles wear out the life of a woman. Menstrual pain so shatters her nervous system that she is often'brought near to the asylum or
to the grave. These frightful alternatives are the almost inevitable results of prolonged suffering. Every woman should understand that
deranged menses cause headaches, backaches, nausea and derangement; of the stomach, bowels and kidneys. Wine of Cardui stops all this by
regulating the menses and strengthening the ligaments which hold .the womb in place. This pure Wine has completely relieved 1,000,000
women of menstrual pain, giving them strong nerves and rugged health. This medicine has demonstrated that it is not necessary for a
woman to go through untold agony every month.
, Norfolk, Va., May IS, 1901.
I will at least write a few lines to let you know how I am enjoying life after taking Wine of Cardui. I can say your good medicine has done me more good in the thirteen
- months I have been taking it, than all the doctors and their medicines have in all my long suffering, which has been 21 years. I can eat at the usual times and sleep like a child. I have
no pain at my monthly period, so I feel like a hew woman. I advise all sickly women to use Wine of Cardui. I never will stop using it. Mrs. FA2JUIE DUCK.
Go to your druggist today and ask for a $1.00 bottle of Wine of Cardui. : ,

many respects the Pan-American Expo

Mr. Grace, not because It was so large

for the way It was being cared for and

MANY PHEASANTS WERE KILLED.
Opening of the Season Brought
Scores of Hunters to Albany.
ALBANY, Or., Oct 1. The open season
for upland birds began this morning in
the most glorious weather of the season.
Linn County, the original home in Amer
ica of the Mongolian ring-necked pheas
ant as in the past, was this year the
center of attraction for the hunting of
this maglnficent game bird, and hunters
were here all the way from California
. It is heroic for a woman to suffer in
to Seattle, a large delegation from Port
land being In the field. Getting the
limit of 10 birds, as provided by the
new game law of the last Legislature,
was an easy matter. Some respected It
and came back to the city early, "but a
large number remained out until even
ing, when they came In with large bags,
far more than the limit One Portland
man hired a tramp to assist him and
reached the city In time for the Corvallls
& Eastern and a connection with the
West Side train. He had two large bags
full, nearly 50 birds. The sport has
been greatly enjoyed, and as the fields
are full of tho birds, which are more
prolific this year than ever before, It is
expected to last for several weeks.
PETITION FOR PARDON'.
Strong Plea In Behalf of a Portland
Man Now in the Penitentiary.
SALEM, Oct. L Governor Geer today
received a petition for the nardon of Gus
tavo Lagny, who was received at the
Penitentiary March 2L 1896, on a 10-year
sentence for stealing an overcoat and pair
of gloves from the office of Dr. A. A.
Ausplund, at Portland. With credits
earned by good behavior, Lagny has
served all but 14 months of his time. The
grounds for the petition are that the
sentenco was excessive, and that the
prisoner has reformed. Lagny pleaded
guilty to the charge against him, and was
sentenced by Judge Stephens. The grant
ing of the pardon Is recommended by the
prosecuting witness, Dr. L. E. HIbbard,
the Deputy Prosecuting Attorney who
conducted the 'case, J. J. Fitzgerald and
by Rabbi J. Block, of Portland, who be
came acquainted with Lagny and found
him a man of good family and of pre
