TO TAKE MUCH CASH
Import of. Claim Against State
BRQUGHT ;LJNDER A RECENT-'LAW
It JUl interest In Sucli Casjbsust Be
Repaid, It "Will Take More
SALBlt. March 10. Officials o the
Btato Land Board say that they do not
know the exact amount that depends upon
the decision of the Williams mandamus
case, begun yesterday against the State
Hand Boai"d, but thoso tvho profess to
kno-yr cay that a decision against the
Boaitt -will cost the state 575.0W to SSO.O00.
The mandamus proceeddng-lsr'founded upon
eoction IS of the act of February IS, 1S99.
This act was known -as Senate bill No.
126. and was Introduced by Senator Daly,
of Benton County. The section referred
to Is as follows:
"Any person who has paid to the Stat
!Land Board 'any money dn lands to which
the State Land1 Board could not and can
not convey title, shall be entitled not only
to the repayment -of the amount paid by
him, as provided by section 17 of this act,
but also to interest thereon at 5 per cent
per annum from the date- of payment to
the date of warrant for repayment, and
the board shall compute said Interest and
order the same paid to said purchaser, his
heirs or assigns, from, tho interest of the
fund which received the benefit of the
payment; provided, no interest shall be al
lowed or paid where the purchaser, by
reason of his payment to the state, had
the use or could have had tho use and
possession of the land on which the pay
ment was made."
It appears from the records in the pres
ent case that in 1S73 and-lSSS J3r. B. F.
Hutchinson made payments aggregating
$320 'on land in Lincoln County, to which
the State Land Board could not convey
tltje- The money was used by the state
In the payment of outstanding swamp
land warrants bearing S per cent inter
est, thus saving the state S per cent in
terest on the money for the time it was
used by the state. The money was repaid
in two payments made in !93 and 1S3G,
but no Interest was paid. Dr. Hutchinson
died, and Helen "Williams, as his heir,
presented her claim to the board for in
terest on. the money, as provided1 in the
now law. The board took the question
under consideration, and on February 27.
1SO0, rendeied a decision, in which this
entry was made:
"It is the opinion of the tooard that the
act tinder which this claim is made sec
tion, 18 of "the act approved February IS,
lS99-r-does nqt. authorize the- payment of in
terest in those cases where the principal
had been .repaid iprior. to -tire passage of
that act, and for this reason it Is or
dered that the payment asked for in the
petition be not made."
The payment of Interest having been de
nied by the board, Helen "Williams brought
the mandamus proceeding In the Circuit
Court to compel the board to compute
the interest and order the same paid from
the fund tvhich received ihe benefit of the
payment of the purchase-price of the
The question whether the -state is holden
for interest on such payments of pur
chase money was decided against claim
ants by the State Land Board of the last
administration. The question was never
taken to the courts, hence there is noth
ing but the decision of the board bearing
upon the legal phase of the matter prior
to the passage of the present act. The
"board Is of the opinion that the Legis
lature did not intend by the new law to
make the state liable for interest on sums
of money paid' the state at various times
during the last 20 years, but only for
money repaid after the passage of the act.
An Inspection of the Senate proceedings
chows that there was very little opposi
tion to the bill, and that there was no
attempt to amend tho portion of tho bill
providing for the payment of interest.
The bill passed by -an almost unanimous
vote. The State Land Board has not yet
determined officially what action will be
taken in regard to the mandamus pro
ceeding, but it is certain that the board
will not pay the interest until compelled
to do so. The matter will come before the
board at a meeting to be held Monday,
and it will then be decided what course
will be pursued. As this is not a case
against the state, neither tho District At
torney nor the Attorney-General will con
duct the defense.

ASTORIA, Or., March 10. A deal was
closed yesterday afternoon, whereby A. B.
Hammond purchases 400 feet of water

learned, although it is understood the
deeds require the property to be Improved
within two years. The price Is $6500.
From present indications it is certain that
ceveral transfers of water-front property
in Astoria will be made in the near fu
ture. It Is known that what is termed
tho Truckee. Lumber Company property.
In Uppertown, consisting of 1000 feet of
frontage near the old Eagle cannery, has
been bonded. This is said to have been
done in the Interest of Spokane men. Ne
gotiations are also in progress for the pur
chase of a strip of water front near the
CQ-operativ cannery, and another In the
center of the city, but so far as can bo
ascertained, neither has as yet been
closed. The prospective purchasers in
each case are outside people.
Kin Rata and Cats.
The physicians of this city are still act
ive in urging every one to kill tho rats
about their premises, c a precaution
against the plague. In speaking of the
matter today. Dr. Aug. C. Kinney said:
"That la the most Important thing for
Astoria, Portland and all the Pacific
Coast cities to do now for their own pro
tection and the protection of the whole
United States. Give a bounty if you wish,
but at anv rate kill the rats and when
they aro all destroyed it would be a little
better to kill the cats, too."
The doctor thinks there Is grave dangel
of a plague epidemic In this country, and
does not deem it wise for the people to
rely upon quarantine measures alone.

the fishing interests generally. He will
be willing to pay a good price to fisher
men for all the sea lions that they may

ways very fat when they come into the
river. The matter will be brought up at
the next meeting of the Fishermen's
Union for discussion.
