A KNAVE OR HIS FOOL.
"Billy Patterson," the chronic liar
of fthe benton leader, in the last issue
of that bundle of wise (?) things, sound
ing like senseless word vaporings from
a meaningless imbecile, were the fol
lowing false assertions, to-wit : "The

hard-worked farmers $25 and upward

mortgaging the same to the school
commissioners. This is about an
This infamous lie, is evidently in
tended to refer to our official acts as
agent for the State School commis
sioners in examining the securities and
doing the necessary work to safely
effect loans of school funds. The as
sertion on its face shows the writer to
be as ignorant as a mule or else he is
purposely and dishonestly endeavor
ing to mislead the public. Our work
which we have done in effecting school
loans consists, 1st, of drawing a written
application for the party asking a loan
to sign. 2nd, ascertaining the value of
land offered, which often spoils the
best part of one to three days. 3rd,
examining all the deed and mortgage
indexes through for every man who
ever owned the land. 4th, examine
every deed made by each and every
man who ever owned the land,
to any lands in the county to as
certain if such deeds interferes with
the title in question. 5th, examine
every mortgage made in the county by
each and every man who ever owned
Jthe land in question. 6th, examine all
judgment dockets of both circuit and
county courts, going through each of
them thoroughly for every man's name
who ever owned the land 7th, ex
amine the record book of attachments.
8th, if the land was ever owned by any
person when such person died, then
examine thoroughly all the probate
records and papers of that estate to
see if the proceedings to sell the land
through administrator's sale was cor
rect and vallid. 9th, if the land was
ever sold at sheriffs sale, examine
thoroughly all records, papers, re
turns of service and proceedings in
selling the land to ascertain if a valid
judgment was had and a valid sheriff
sale of the land made, roth, make
and prepare a thorough written ab
stract of title as it appears and is
found in the above examination. 1 rth,
if the descriptions are apparently in
definite so that it is impossible to tell
from a simple inspection of the deeds
if it is right, then take the necessary
drafting instruments and make a plot
on paper of the land as described.
1 2th, if after doing all these things it is
found that the title and value of the
land is as the law requires, then cer

of school land commissioners at Salem.

then we make out the neces

correct, the assertions of "Billy Pat
terson" to the contrary, notwithstand
ing. During a professional career of
about ten years for the kind of work
above enumerated, we have charged
all persons alike in proportion to the
amount of work in each case, gener
ally from ten to thirty dollars, and in
very few cases where the examination
was long and difficult, or the title was
found bad and work done to correct
it, the charges have been as high as
forty dollars, and so long as we con
tinue to examine titles and value land
no matter whether it be for the school
commissioners or private parties, we
shall make similar charges for services,
regardless of the idiotic lies of "Billy
Paterson" leader. As. many people
do not have an accurate idea of what
the "examination of titles" mean and
as "Billy Patterson" leader has shown
himself as dumb as an ourangoutang
on this subject, or else as dishonest as
a knave in making the false statement
purposely to deceive the public, we
deem it proper to make the foregoing
THE EFFECT OF DISFRANCHISING UTAH.
It seems that persons who would
not relish the idea of being considered
unwise are becoming enthusiastic
over the proposition to disfranchise
the people of Utah and place the
government of the territory on a basis
like that of the District of Columbia
in order to suppress polygamy and de
feat the objects of Mormonism. This
however is certainly only a temporary,
one sided remedy which could effect
nothing as an ultimate result. It
might have the effect to cast a tem
porary shadow over the efforts to
polygamy in Utah for a time, but how
could it effect the question in other
territories? It was only a few days
ago that it was announced that 85
wagons from Utah laden with Mormon
families and their wares had started
to settle in Arizona. For several years
the world has been informed upon
good authority that counties in Idaho
and other territories were so thickly
populated with Mormons that they
govern the public affairs of their re
spective localities. What would a
law disfranchising Utah effect the
Mormons and polygamists of Arizona,
Idaho or any other territory or locality
except Utah ? There is only one
answer to this question and that is
when a law disfranchising Utah was
being enforced it would no doubt have
the effect to cause Mormons and po
lygamists of Utah to gradually with
draw from that place and transfer
themselves, their property and oppc
rations to Arizona, Idaho, or some
other place outside of Utah, and thus
the gentiles of Utah would be left
there disfranchised with Congress as
their guardian while the lecherous
polygamists would be in other parts
practicing their infamous crimes
against the laws of the country. It
certainly will require stronger medi
cine than disfranchisement of a single
territory to eradicate the crime of
polygamy. It certainly occurs to the
mind of mature thought that the only
way to effectually deal with it is to
make it a crime with severe punish
ment any place and so organize the
courts and modes of trial that the vio
lations thereof can be proved and
SEW ARRIVAL OF LATER DAY SAINTS.

lowing news 01 inormonism : A new
contingent of 358 proselytes of the
Latter day Saints arrived from Liver
pool on the Wisconsin yesterday. A
large number of them were comely
young women, and the party was un
der charge of twenty returning elders,
who had been on a recruiting service
tor about two years and a half. Of
the 358,120 were Scandinavians, and
the rest English, Scotch and Welsh.
the men were farmers, miners and
laborers. It was learned that there
are two classes of Mormons recruiting
one known as the branch of Jo
sephites, or followers of Joseph Smith,
and the other polygamists, or sup
porters of polygamy. The new arri
vals will decide at some future time
which faith they will embrace.

for the newspaper proprietors of Ore

take any steps toward protection they
must expect to be bilked.

Kansas City they will go to Chicago.
The excursion originated with a view

WHEN AND HOW TO SELL CROPS.
The farmer who knows when and
how to sell his crops to the best ad
vantage is more fortunate than his
fellows who lack such knowledge.
There can be no definite rule by which
to insure alwavs the best prices, but
there are certain general rules well es
tablished that may be observed with
profit. The most important of these
is that a crop fitted for the market
should be sold at a time which will
best suit the seller. That is to sav, if
he permits himself to be hampered in
such a way as to allow the buyer to
make terms, both as to price and time
of delivery, he is practically without
voice in the matter.
The first requisite in entering the
market with reasonable expectation of
obtaining prices for products that will
afford profit on the labor of producing
them is, that they be of good quality
and deliverable in good order. A
farmer who has a crop of wheat
threshed soon after harvest, well
cleaned and stored in bins, is able to
exert some influence in fixing the price.
If he has a desirable crop there is in it
something to tempt the buyer, an in
ducement to reach the highest figure.
Now, if added to this there is safe con
fidence in the integrity of the farmer
his profits in sales are still further aug
mented. What is regarded as integ
rity in this case is that high character
of the farmer which inspires confidence
that the crop shall be what it appears
to be, clean at the top, in the middle
and at the bottom, that the bins as
they show give true ideas of condition
It is true that careful observance
of these requirements will not always
secure the prices necessary to bring
profit, but it will secure the best prices
that are paid at that time.
Then comes the question about de
lay, about holding products for bet
ter prices. Of this personal judgment
must oc tne sole guide. Many a
farmer, not satisfied with current rates
for his products, holds without defi
nue iaeas aDout cnances; without in
forming himself what influences are ex
erted or may be exerted, to advance
or depress prices, simply waiting, Mi-cawber-Iike,
for something to turn up.
There is no wisdom in this course.
about the markets except as prices
are quoted to him, will usually do the
best when he sells at a price that
affords profit, because he does not
know when to wait, tie has no rea
son to justify holding, although such
reasons may exist.
After all it is not a bad rule for
any farmer to sell his products when
ever the prices afford satisfactory
profit. When the markets are steady,
with general tendencies upward, and
he has full understanding of the situ
ation, he may wait without incurring
risks, that is to say, he may await his
convenience for the delivery take his
own time when it will best fit into the
general work. But when prices fluc
tuate materially, he will do better to
"catch on," as the street phrase runs,
when the price has suitable margin of
profit. That for him is the time, while
failure to use it will be very likely to
put his products at the bottom.
im -n 1 , . .
1 ne influences wnicn govern the
markets differ very greatly from those
of a few years ago. Now all the prin
cipal products of the farm may be de
uvered in large cities from an extent
of country vastly beyond that which
forty years ago was the restricted
source of supply. Wheat is delivered
from Chicago, St. Louis or Milwaukee
as quickly as a few years ago it could
be delivered from counties adjacent to
the cities which are the ultimate mark
ets, and the same is true of all other
farm products, including cattle, sheet.
and swine. In effect the field is mul
tiplied a thousandfold, and therefore
competition multiplied a thousandfold.
There is so much less chance- for in
dividual advantage. On the other
hand the means of information are so
greatly extended and their operation
so much quickened, that an intelligent
farmer may have far better understand
ing of the market. If he studies con
ditions with care he will be able al
ways to act intelligently in selling.
Market reports make up fairly, not in
the interest of buyers, nor of seller,
but rather to represent the true con
dition of affairs, hecome safe guides to
sound judgment, and such reports are
accessible to all farmers. The one
general rule that should govern in
selling and buying is : get full infor
mation of all conditions affecting the
product offered, then seize upon the

Very Respectfully, E. S. LYMAN.
From the Akron Commerci
al, Ohio, Nov. 25, 1882.
Readers of the Commercial can not well forget
that a iare space has for years been taken up by
Kendall's advertisement especially of a certain
Spavin Cure. We have had dealings with Dr. Ken.
dall for many years, and the truth Is fully and faith
ully proven not only that he is a irood honest man.
and that his celebrated Spavin Cure is not only all
that it b recommended to be, but that the English
laatgassKde not capable of recommending too highly.
Kendall's Spavin Cure will cure spavins. There
are hundreds 01 cases in which that has been proven
to our certain knowledge, but, after all, if any person
connnes me usciumess 01 inis celebrated medicine
to curing spavins alone, they make a bit; mistake.
It is the best ;: ediciive known as an outward applica
tion for rheumatism in the human family. It is good
for pains and aches, sWehjBga and lameness, and is
just as safely applied to men, women and children
as it is to horses. We know that there are other
good linaments, but we do believe this spavin cure to
be far better than anv.ever invented.

B. J. Keddall & Co . Gents: While in the employ
of C. C. Hastings, the well known horseman of Sau
Francisco, in the year ending 18l0, we had a young
horse two years old that contracted a bone spavin and
seeing your liniment known as Kendall's Spavin Cure
advertised, upon my own responsibility I commenced
using it and within thirty days from that time and
after having used only three bottles the spavin was
removed entirely, aud therefore 1 naturally have the
utmost confidence in its merits. 1 do not hesitate to
recommend it to all who have occasion to use the
medicine and should any one desire to' confer with
me 1 shall be glad to answer any communication
relating to the case in question.

and I am pleased to say that I was fully satisfied with

splints, which after a few app.ications were entirely
removed. I also used it on a spavin with the sam
results. The medicine has grown in popularity in
this vicinity in the past few months and what is
