Instead of thousands we needed mil
lions of roses. Everyone .wanted a
rose. Even the badges gave out long
before the crowds did. Great beauti
ful bouquets here and there through
out the building were rinally torn to
pieces and distributed. Could just one
Portland street of roses have been
transplanted to the big exposition it
would have been the most tremendous

but all who didn't get one looked as
disappointed as though it had been a

roses are, for they drew the people
with alluring appeal. "They came from
across the bay in hundreds, and they
said over and over again: "We've
heard so much about the Portland
roses; we came just to, see Portland
All day the demand kept up. until at
4 o'clock, when the roses were finally
distributed, a perfect mob was in the

LAND LAWS UPHELD
New Era Expected as Result
of Decision That Entryman
Has His Rights.
PATENT MUST BE ISSUED
Claimant Who Has Complied With
Statutes Cannot Be Deprived of
Title by Arbitrary Ruling
of , Department.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington. June 19. The United States
Supreme Court having twice in the cur
rent month decicfed that the land laws
confer definite rights on entrymen
which the Land Office and Secre
tary of the Interior cannot arbitrarily
vitiate or set aside, it is assumed that
a new era in land administration has
begun, for the decisions xf the Supreme
Court are binding on the department.
In the cases recently decided one set
arising in Oregon and 'the other in
Washington, the court makes it plain
that Congress determined- the condi
tions under which citizens may acquire
title to public lands, and whenever a
citizen indicates an entry or makes a
filing under any of the land laws, and
thereafter meets all the requirements
of the law under which he filed, tt is
incumbent upon the Land Department
to issue such settler a patent.
Secretary Has No Discretion.
The Secretary of the Interior has no
discretionary power to withhold a pat
ent; ne cannot patent the land to a
subsequent claimant, though the sec
ond entryman may also have met all
the requirements of the law. The origi
nal entryman has earned his patent and
it must be issued to him.
It so happened in the cases decided
by the Supreme Court that the original
claimants made lieu selections, instead
of direct entries, and in both cases the
Interior Department permitted home
stead and timber entries to be made on
the identical lands after the lieu selec
tions had been filed. This was dose.
though the department admitted that
the base offered was valid and the land
open to lieu selection at the time it
was covered by scrip filings. In the
one case the lieu selections were er
roneously held up by the local land of
ficers and finally rejected after the
subsequent entries had been passed to
patent; In the other instance the lieu
selections have been held up arbitrarily
or through neglect for 13 years, and to
this day have not been acted on. The
Supreme Court finds that the rights of
the lieu selectors, though disregarded
by the department, are valid and must
Selections Held I p 15 Tears.
Especial significance Attaches to the
Washington case, for in that case the
Lieu selectors used what is known as
b. A. Hyde base. These selections were
made 15 years ago. when land fraud in
vestigations were under way in the Pa
cific Northwest and when E. A. Hitch
cock was Secretary of the Interior. The
Government was prosecuting or pre
paring to prosecute Hyde and others.
and Secretary Hitchccock. in November.
1903, issued an order suspending all
lieu selections made with Hyde scrip,
Though this order was issued some
time after the filings in question, it
evidently operated to prevent the ao
proval of these and like selctions and
that order is still in effect.
The Supreme Court accepted the
opinion of the Interior Department that
his particular Hyde scrip was valid
in itself and the scrip having been
valid when offered, the Court finds
that -the Department exceeded its au
thority when It refused to approve the
selections and patent the lands to the
Hitchcock Order Nullified.
The eftect of this decision, therefore
seems to be that the Department must
abrogate the order of Secretary Hitch
cock, and where valid scrip has been
offered and where the lieu selections
have been in all respects legal and in
accordance with law, must approve the
selections. in cases, as in this on
where-the Department has sanctioned
the patenting of lands so selected to
subsequent entrymen, the Department's
illegal action must bo undone.
The effect of these decisions of the
Supreme Court will be widespread, for
the titles to many tracts of land are af
rected and many decisions of the In
terior Department are reversed. Where
lieu selectors have been improperly de
prived of their rights by the Depart
ment, tne probable course of action will
be the institution of equity suits to have
the holders of the lands through pat
ents declared trustees to hold the title
thus obtained to public lands in trust
ror . the original claimants. This was
the course followed in the cases carried
to the Supreme Court.
Where lieu selections have been held
up without Justification and the lands
are still unpatented, the effect will be
to compel the Department tapprove
the lieu selections and issue patents in
conlormity with law. .
