West Side or Hood River Valley
Chosen as Course.
HOOD RIVER. Or.. May 26. Specinl.)-
An electric road through the west side
of Hood River Valley is considered now
almost a certainty. Walter Moore and
other Portland capitalists have made re
cent visits to this city, and have declared
their belief that the project would be a
paying proposition almost from the start.
Local freight and passenger traffic, to
gether with a large tourist travel. Is con
sidered sufficient inducement for building
the road. Nothing definite has been given
out concerning the plans of the promoters,
but it Is thought that the project will be
considered in earnest this Summer. m

Indemnity Lands to Be Sold by
State Board.
No Offers of Less Than Eivo Dollars
Per Acre Will Be Received Tor
Twenty Thousand Acres of
School Land.
SALEM. Or., May B.-(SpeciaU The
State Land Board decided this afternoon
to sell to the highest 'bidders the Indem
nity land that will be selected upon the
base made available by the recent estab
lishment of the Wallowa forest reserve-
No bid will be received at less than U
per acre. Since Fanta Fe scrip is selling
at 57 per acre, it Is evident that the
Indemnity land selected upon forest re
serve base will sell at some figure between
J5 and 17 per acre
Forest reserve base Is inferior to Santa
Fe scrip In two respects. Tho scrip can
be used in -any State in the Union, while
forest reserve base must be used In Ore
gon, and the purchaser of Indemnity
land is limited to 320 acres while the use
of scrip Is unrestricted in quantity. To
the man who wants 320 acres of Indemnity
land in Oregqn. the forest reserve base Is
fully as good as Santa Fe scrip.
The procedure will be this: Any person
desiring to purchase a tract of Govern
ment land through the State, must make
an offer of the price he Is willing to pay.
If his bid is accepted he will designate
the land he wishes selected and deposit
51 per acre as an evidence of good faith.
The State Land Agent will then select the
land on forest reserve base and when the
State has. secured title, the board will
Issue a certificate of sale or deed to the
State I.and Agent West has - made an
accurate estimate of the unsold school
land In the Wallowa reserve and finds It
to be about 20.000 acres. The State Land
Board will" soon advertise for bids and It
Is probable that nearly all of those who
bid over J3 an acre will have a chance
to use some of this base. Those who
have heretofore bought indemnity land
and have lost title because the base was
Invalid, may secure this base, which Is
unquestionably valid, by paying the dlf
fererice between the price already paid
and the amount of their bid. In other
words. If they use new bas1?. they will be
credited with the amount already paid to
the State. This will afford an oppor
tunlty for some of those who were caught
on alleged mineral base to protect them
Lewis and Clark Counties Declared
Unconstitutional by Court.
BOISE. Idaho. May 25. -(Special.) The
Supreme Court has denied the application
for a rehearing of the case In which the
bill abolishing Kootenai County and
creating the counties of Lewis and Clark
was found unconstitutional. The opinion
Is by h divided court. Chief Justice
Stockslagcr. who dissented In the original
opinion, again dissenting in theso pro
The opinion devotes attention in an in
teresting manner to the contention that
the fixing of the county seat 'of Clark
County at Coeur D'Alene was not a vio
lation of the law which prohibits the
moving of a county seat without a vote
of the people. On this point It says In
"It is a part of the legislative history
of this State that a bill was Introduced in
the Legislature for the creation of Lewis
County out of substantially the same
portion of Kootenai County that the
Lewis County referred to in this act con
tains and that said bill failed to become
a law because of the opposition of mem
bers who afterwards supported the pres

to said members was no doubt the crea

the county seat from Rathdrum to the
city of Coeur D'Alene. That feature of
the bill was the main Inducement for Its
Secretary of Interior Gives Many
Acres Known to Be Mineral.
BUTTE; Mont, May 26. A special from
Great Falls to the Miner says:
"By a decision given today by the Sec
retary of the Interior, many thousands of
acres of the school lands of the State of
Montana, including those that are the
most valuable, are preserved to the
State. The decision Is by far the most
important decision on a land matter In
many years and probably the most im
portant ever given In a matter in which
the State was a party, with the exception
of the Northern Pacific land cases.
mc Secretary holds that the lands
claimed by the State for school lands are
more valuable for minerals than agricul
ture and. though such lands were known
to contain minerals prior to the date of
the admission of the State into the Union.
the lands may be held by the State as
school lands, notwithstanding their mln
cral character, unless they had been lo
cated, developed or claimed as mineral
land prior to November 8, 1SS9; and that
that development of mines subsequent to
the admission of the State, though the
deposits of mineral were known prior
thereto, cannot affect the title of the
State to lands donated by act of Congress
to the State for the benefit of the public

SEATTLE. Wash.. May 2S.-(Spccial.)
Seattle physicians who based one of
their objections to contributing to the
Portland fund for the entertainment of
the American Medical Society members
in July on the claim that they would
have to entertain the same delegates
here, are begging funds on their own
account. The local medical men asserted
when they were Justifying their repudia
tion of the Portland committee that they
could not afford two contributions, but
would entertain those visitors who came
here. Now they have made It clear to
the Chamber of Commerce that they will
have to be given help or the local en
tertainment will fall.
An intimation that money could be used
was given the Chamber of Commerce
fomc time ago. but no attention was
paid to the suggestion. Today a plainer
appeal for entertainment funds was made.
Today J. H. Mclckle was approached.
but he shied away from the medicos.
It would require official action on the
part of the trustees to help out the
medicos financially, and there Is a strong
sentiment against setting that precedent
The calls for help that would follow
this Summer would be too heavy for
the commercial body to carry.

ermen have notified the managers,of the
different canneries that they will refuse
to deliver fish to the canneries that em
ploy the Sacramento River fishermen or
are instrumental In securing licenses for
them. This is the first active measure
taken by the home fishermen to keep the
Sacramento fishermen from operating as
in the past, and as the local fishermen are
determined In the matter, the result of
the position they have taken will un
doubtedly accomplish the purpose better
than any action that the officials could
take. At the present time this threat of
the fishermen is no idle one, as every
fish caught Is in demand, and the cannery
men know that their rivals in business
would be only too glad to push the move
ment along.

and In a measure was responsible for the
heart trouble that followed the ooeratlon

nearly everything, but he grew worse,
wasting to a skeleton, and we feared
he -would die. He slept only jwhen
in our arms. The first applicationof
Cnticura soothed him so that he. slept
in his cradle for the first time in
many weeks. One set of Cnticura
made a complete and permanent
