That tha whole American West and Southwest la facing a aerloua labor famine like that now confronting lum ber companies, railroad contractors, farmers and fruitgrowers of the In land Empire Is indicated by dispatches that have reached Spokane today from Duluth, Minn., and Middle Western points. Summed up in accordance with in formation received from" the bis; farm ing and lumber making districts east of the Rocky Mountains ana conamons known to exist In Washington. Mon tana. Idaho. Oregon. British Columbia and Alberta, the state of affairs in the labor market presents a situation In which this section of the country is shown to be In rigid competition for men with Middle Western employers.

UNCLE SAM TO TEST LAW Interesting; Land Case In Oregon to Be Heard Next Month. KLAMATH FALLS". Or.. July 27 fSDaclaL) A case which excites con siderable interest in thla section Is that of the United States against C A. Bnntlnr of Merrill. Or for interf er ase with the ditches of the Govern ment. This case will establish a prec edent In such matters. C. J. Ferguson, of this city, has been appointed a spe cial commissioner to take testimony In the case, and the hearing has been fixed for August 12. This course will save both sides much expense, as oth erwise all attorneys and witnesses would be compelled to go. to Portland and appear before the United States Court there. The history of the case seems to be as follows: When the Government opened the Klamath project It found here a private irrigating system, known as the "Adams Canal," which it purchased, but on examining title found that the rights of way were not all deeded. There was held back from the purchase price $5000. to assure the completion of the title. Bunting's land Is In this class, and he and the owners of the canal have not been able to agree on the terms of settlement. The Government charges that he has eut the banks of a lateral on his place at points other than the regular turn outs and thua Interfered with the dis tribution of water to his neighbors. In this state the law gives title to land held 10 years in undisputed pos session.; and the owners of the canal probably rely on that to some extent. When the canal was built the land was worth very little, but now values In that section run from 75 to 10 per acre. In the olden days men traded land about as they would dogs, one instance being cited where two men traded parts of their farms without writing of any kind and now own the land by virtue of the law oited above. The testimony will go to the court for decision. RELICS FOUND IN STONE EXCAVATION AT ItOSEBCRG IS CONDUCIVE TO DISCOVERY. Cornerstone of Old Abraham Build ing Has Held Tin Box Since 1878. ROSEBURG.

The prospects are that there will be good demand for ordinary la bor here until December 1 and perhaps longer. This will be determined by the weather conditions in the late Fall. Some seasons work of all kinds can ba continued until the end of the year and sometimes the weather pre vents much outside work after Deoem ber 1. Chchalls Jewelers Win Prise. CHEHALIS. i Wash..

SAFE BATHING IS SEASIDE MAY PUT I.IFESAVIXG APPARATUS OX BEACH. Moved by Gearhart Drowning, Citi zens W1U Appeal to Council to Take Action. SEASIDE. Or., July 27. (Special.) Moved by the recent drowning at Gear hort. Seaside citizens are preparing to appeal to the Counoll for safeguards to bathers. Drownings at Seaside have been comparatively few In recent years, but as a protection to foolhardy bathers who persist In taking unrea sonable chances for the sake of the op portunity to show their prowess as swimmers. It is proposed to ask that lines ba procured so that an aaay res cue may be made in case any swimmer ma)seem in danger. Swimmers will be drag-eed with the proposed life lines. One line of Quarter-inch rope belong ing to the Hotel Moore has been used several times In towing ashore unfor tunates who found that the amount of strength required to reaoh shore from beyond the breakers is fully equal to that expenuea in pauams iuivuau surf outward. The proposal to be jut before the Council will bo to have several drums of light rope with cork rinks and life preservers placed along the beach wherever crowds are accustomed to bathe, so that in case of an emengeney there .will be no delay In bringing ashore exponents of fancy swimming. The Council probably will be kindly disposed when this appeal la made, the expense of the paraphernalia being light and Its neoesslty realised. Citizens also are contemplating, as an added safeguard, that a fine of S10 be Imposed upon all who venture be yond the breakers, since the aot has ards the life of the man who roust bring him ashore as well as that of the swimmer.
