Representative Monde'l Intro
duces Land Bill Into
Provides That Settler Holding 160
Acres Under Homestead Law Slay
Acquire 160 Acre More Ad
Joining, Tinder Conditions.
ington, Dec. 16. No bill introduced at the
present session of Congress, proposing to
amend the public land laws, has attract
ed greater attention than the 320-acre
homestead bill offered by Representative
Mondell, of Wyoming, who, under the
rule of seniority. Is slated for chairman
of the Committee on Public Lands of the
House. As drawn the bill not only per
mits the original filing of 320-acre home
steads, but permits homesteaders who
have heretofore acquired 160 acres of
jnx unaer me uorciesiena net, 10 i .in u
another 160 acres, on certain conditions.
So important Is this bill that Its terms
are here quoted In full. The bill pro
vides: That any person who !s a qualified entry
man under the homestead laws of the
United States shall be entitled to enter,
under the provisions of this act. 820 acres,
or less, of surveyed, unappropriated publlo
land, to be located In a reasonably com
pact body, and not to exceed one and one
half miles In extreme length. In conformity
with the legal subdivision of the public
lands; but no person who Is the proprietor
f more than 160 acres In any state or ter
ritory shall acquire any rights under this
Excludes Timber Land.
Section 2. That any person applying to
enter land under the provisions of this act
shall make and subscribe before the proper
office an affidavit as required by section
S290 of the Revised Statutes, and In addi
tion thereto shall make affidavit that the
land sought to be entered does not contain
a merchantable growth of timber; that not
to exceed 80 acres of the same Is Irrigable
from any known source of water supply;
that In the opinion of the entryman at least
160 acres of the tract Is susceptible of cul
tivation and the growing of crops, and upon
the filing of such affidavits and on pay
ment of the sums now required to be paid
under the hcmestead law for each 80 acres
contained In the tract applied for, he or
she shall be permitted to make entry.
Take Up Contiguous Land.
Section 8. That any person ' who has
heretofore perfected an entry under the
homestead law of 160 acres, or less, shall
have the right to make entry under this
act of an area which, together with the
former entry, shall not exceed 320 acres.
That any homestead entryman now occu
pying lands heretofore entered by him
shall have the right to enter unappropriated
public lands, subject to the provisions of
this act. lying contiguous to his former
entry, which, together with the original en
try, shall not exceed 320 acres, and resi
dence upon the original entry . shall be

Section 4. That at the time of making

ball. In . addition to the proofs and affi
davits required under the homestead law,
prove by two creditable witnesses that st
least one-eighth of the area embraced In his
Hrtry has been continuously cultivated and
that improvements have been made upon
the land to the value of not less than 41. 2S
per acre for each acre contained In the
Advance Dry Farming.
Speaking of his bill, Representative
Mondell said It was drawn for the pur
pose of enabling settlers to take up lands
adapted for dry farming. Experience haa
demonstrated that 160 acres of land is not
ufflcient to support a family If 'the land
muat be dry farmed. - On the other hand;
the dry-farmer does not require 640 acres
to support himself and family If the land
Is really susceptible of dry fanning.
Mr. Mondell explains, as Is well known,
that the cream of the public domain haa
long since passed to private ownership;
the agricultural land which remains Is
not ideal farming land, and much of It
ean only be made productive by Irrigation
or by dry-farming. The irrigable area is
limited because there la a limit to the
water supply, but much of the remaining
land that cannot be made productive un
der ordinary farming methods, and which
can never be irrigated, can be made to
yield crops when properly dry-farmed,
and it la this class of land which Mr.
Mondell contends will be taken up under
his bill.
- Open Semi-Arid Regions. '
He has so drawn his bill that timber
lands cannot be acquired under Its provi
sions, and has made It Impossible to ac
quire more than 80 acres that are sus
ceptible of Irrigation. In all semi-arid re
gions there is some land. that can be re
claimed by irrigation, but only a small
portion, relatively speaking. In the main
he believes his bill would merely open up
to settlement semi-arid regions which
will never be settled as long as the
homestead Is restricted to 160 acres. His
Chief object, he declares. Is to get set
tlers for his own and: other semi-arid
It Is not expected that the bill will pass
in Its present form. The draft which was
introduced is purely tentative, and will
be subject to amendment and change
both In the committee and In the House.

Alleges That the Wholesale Houses
Dealing In Supplies Were in Con
spiracy to Aid Local Trust.
A fresh exposure of the graft which the
plumbers have been working on the
householders of the city was made yes
terday when M. B. Thompson filed suit
in the Circuit Court against the Gould
Company; and this time It is not only
the master plumbers who .are brought
into the limelight. The wholesale houses
handling plumbers' supplies are also al
leged to have conspired together, and to
be still conspiring, to sell no supplies
of any klnd to any corporation, firm or
individual in the city, except duly li
censed plumbers. It is still further .the
complaint of Mr. Thompson that the
wholesale houses have unlawfully com
bined to raise the price of plumbing ma
terials for the benefit of the plumbers
and themselves. The suit Is brought to
quash a mechanic's Hen filed with the
County Clerk by the Gould Company, No
vember 18, during the holidays, when
Thompson was helpless, so far as the
courts were concerned.
The statements of the complaint filed
by Thompson are as follows: Thompson
owns lots 1, 2, 3 and 4 In Clifford's Ad
dition, Alblna. He entered into an agree
ment on September 3 with D. S. Hughes
by the terms of which Hughes was to
erect four buildings on the property for
J400. A week later, on September 10,
Stanley & Shoemaker contracted with
Hughes to do the plumbing and furnish
the necessary materials' for J636.
Prior to September 3 the Crane Com
pany and Falling, Haines & McCalman.
wholesale dealers, together with other
wholesale dealers In plumbing supplies
here, unlawfully combined, and are now
doing so, to control and fix the selling
price of plumbing materials In Portland,
and to sell no supplies to others than
licensed plumbers, thereby making it im
possible for Thompson or Hughes to pur
chase any plumbing materials for the
The Gould Company, the complaint
continues, also forbid all licensed plumb
ers of the city, as Its agents, from selling
any plumbing supplies to the would-be
purchasers. As Stanley and Shoemaker
were duly licensed plumbers the contract
was entered into with them.
Thompson says he paid Hughes with a
check for $300 on October 4. Hughes, he
says, paid Stanley and Shoemaker with a
check on October 11. and on the same
day this firm paid1 the Gould Company.
Thompson alleges he has paid Hughes
the $4600 in full for his work, and as
serts his belief that Stanley and Shoe
maker are the agents of the Gould Com
pany. He prays the court to enjoin the de
fendant from foreclosing the Hen, andj
from asserting any claim to the prop
erty. The Hen filed by the Gould Company
at the instance of Stanley & Shoemaker,
asserts that the material furnished by
the corporation was worth $263.64, but
was never paid for.
Says Husband Is Cruel and She Can
Stand It NV Longer.
After living with her husband, D. L.
Ticer, for 17 years, Delia Tlcer has at
last sought the relief of the divorce
court, that she may not longer be com
pelled to endure his alleged cruelty, con
sisting of beatings and the application of
vile language. She says her husband
beats her with his fist . when drunk, ap
plying opprobrious epithets, which she
says are too vile to be spread upon the
court records. She also alleges in. her
complaint that her husband, after drink
ing heavily, unjustly accuses her of un
chastity. She says she owns property at
Point View, Or., and says that as her
husband Is a carpenter earning $4.7tr a
day he is able to pay her alimony of $30
a month, which she asks, fiha further

Hattle Dornelfe Sues L. O. Rolston
for $10,060 Damages.
Hattle Dornslfe has brought suit
against L. O. Ralston In the Circuit
Court to recover $10,060 because, she
alleges, she has received serious bodily
Injuries as the result of a barbed-wire
which Ralston placed across the exit to
her property on the east side of Twenti
eth street, near Jefferson. ' She states
in the complaint that there is a gate on
the west side of the premises, and that
on July 6 she had a party of friends
at her house. Upon leaving with them
In the evening she found the wire, and
while removing It was set upon by
Ralston, who cursed her and mangled
her to such an extent by getting her
mixed up in the barbed wire that she
had to call the doctor. She alleges the
doctor's bill was $50 and that the medi
cine cost $10.
As Ralston threatened to kill her, she
thinks the mental and physical anguish
was worth $10,000, so sues for $10,060.
She says she worked as a clerk at $30 a
month before the fight, but cannot do so
any more' on account of her injuries.
R. I. Eckerson Inherits $30,000.
