JLctmg Secretary Joslyn recently
rendered a decision in the case of Jul
lui Brg against Wm. A. A. Perkins,
riginated in Croxton Minn., land dis
trict. The decision was rendered on
an appeal from a decision of this Com.
roissioner of the General Land Office,
d'ecliningto cancel, on charge of abandon
ment the homestead entry of Perkins.
The Secretary affirms the Com
missioner's decision. The settler failed
to complete his house and' make per
manent residence on the land within
six months of entry, although he had a
large portion in crops and had made
preliminary arrangement for building.
Failure was shown at the hearing to
"Tar been partly, if not wholly, ooca.
aioned by climatic reuons, and the
Secretary informs the Commissioner
that he is warranted, under the act of
March tho 3d, 1881, to allow in his
discretion a furik'er period of six
months within which the residence may
be established. The Secretary recites
the fact that this period had not ex
pired at the date of the contest, and
that there is no allegation thatFcrkins
hsd failed to meet the provisions of the
act On the contrary it is sufficiently
shown that he is nc material laches
under it The Commissioner declines,
without referring to the act, to disturb
the entry upon the equitable grounds
oM6ng established practice, and his
decision is affirmed for the reasons
given is well upn additional
grounds of the legal relief afforded by
the statue cited.
Twenty Eighth Volume.
With the present number commences
the twenty eighth year of the Oregon
Sentinel. "We have neither apologies
nor promises to nske to the public as
tho course of this paper as a reflex of
public sentiment and a chronicler of
public events in Southern Oregon is
well known and no change in that
course need bo anticipated. The pub
lic need no thanks. Tho Sentinel has
been sustained because its course has
been approved and beta een the public
and itself there is simply a reciprocal
business relation, each giving and re
ceiving value for value except iiT the
case wftere many have received the
paper for years and seem to have for

THE OITLOOK FOR ISS3.
!THR niKE.ll' OF IJIMIGltlTIO.X.
There was a double funeral at the
metropolis of Oregon on Sunday night
last. At the hour of midnight,
the great deep toned bells swayed to
and fro chiming with sad and mourn
ful cadence the death of the Old Year
and the old man, frosted with the hand
of Time, was laid away among the cen
turies while yet tho joy bells rang
in his successor. Death had another
victim that night; for at that hour and
minute the "only paper" died also, and
was laid away by such a funeral train
as mortal eyes seldom see. In
gratitude drove the hearse; malevolence
tat on the coffin scewling like a baffled
evil thing; hatred, envy and malignity,
decked with nodding plumes followed
as chief mourners, while money bags,
self esteem and sleek monopoly clung
closely to tho remains and groaned in
bitterness. It was a ghastly yet a sad,
sad procession; all that had been dearest
to the "only paper" in life seemed
nearest to it in death and for the sake
of humanity let us hope that the
mourning train was buried with it;
that there will be a free fair field in
journalism and that the "only paper"
will be heard of again never nevermore.
There has never been a period in the
history of Southern Oregon when the
outlook has been so very encouraging as
it is at present. The near approach of
the railroad in course of construction
with its army of consumers has awak
ened our farmers from a "Rip "Van
Winkle" sleep and the plow is turning
over every available acre tobe sown and
planted in anticipation of a good cash
market after harvest. Business has
largely increased during the past six
months, money, owing to the large dis
bursements of the railroad company,
has been more plentiful than for sev
eral years, and there has been a marked
increase in theprice of products, owing,
mainly to the market at the end of the
railroad. There is notably a largo in
flux of the better and more substantial
class of immigration, any of whom
have invested in improved lands
and who will, by their more intelligent
farming and more industrious and so
btr habits, shame some of our old pop
ulation into a half decent and a profit
able cultivation of soiraiat should not
lie idle. While the outlook for the
present is excellent and this year
bids fair to be an unusually good one
our people must not deceive themselves
and lapse again into chronic idleness.
Within a twelve month circumstances
will change and if our population do
not adapt themselves to the new or
der of things we will be pocrer than
ever. The horde of railroad laborers,
who will eat out our granaries, will
have passed; freights will have to be
paid in cash by merchants who in turn
must demand cash for merchandise and
if our farmers do not turn their atten
tion to the products that will find a
cash market and bear railroad trans
portation out of the valley they will be
behind on the day ef reckoning that;
like death and taxation, is, among the
certainties. When the railroad is fin
ished through this valley those who sit
idly and dream that tho golden days
of twenty years ago, when our mines
were in the flush of prosperity, will re
turn may as well be undeceived and if
we would prospeffrom the change it
will bo because we are industrious, eco
nomical and ready to take advantage of
the new situation. Attention must be
turned to smaller industries than wheat
growing, so long impoverishing our soil
without profitable returns. Fruits,
wine, poultry, hops wool and other
commodities that will bear transpor-
twa must ba raised: as ervS system of
barter will cease else; as coin will be
gradually drained from us by freights
our last state may be worse than the
Crst. It is gratifying to scan the his
tory of this county and observe the
steady progress in everything calcu
lated to promote intelligence or mor
ality. Drunkeness is no longer re
spectable. Churches have risen up all
over the valley. Schools that are the
envy of other parts of the State are on
a solid foundation and all around us
there is a quickening influence for the
better that must greatly add to our
prospective prosperity in things materi
al. Taken altogether there has never a
season so full of promise and thrift
dawned on Southern Oregon and, if
we only drift with the tide of fortune,
trim our sails intelligently to its
changing currents and shape our busi
ness to varying circumstances the out
look for 1884 and its successors will be
no less bright It is for cur people to
decide whether they will move-with
the world when the year brings us in
close connection with it or drift back
again into nevertheless apathy.
I is pleasant to notice the fact that
there is a markod improvement in the
general conduct of our boys during the
past year and that the holidays passed
off without any boisterous slopping
over. A little indulgence is expected
during the holidays but this year there
was an exceptionally small amount of
drinking. The younger generation
generally behaved like gentlemen and
feel better satisfied with themselves
in consequence. Tho boys are to bo
congratulated on their good behavior
and it is evident that they have learned
that it is the better and surer way to
Herr Most, the English socialist is
advising the people of America to kill
the capitalists and appropriate their
property. The Herr had better steer
clear of Seattle and Prinevillo or he
will fird himself meet bay miitaken
in his ethics.
The new Portland daily has, accor
ding to promise, made its appearance
and tho Sentinel, the oldest paper in
Oregon except the "Oregonian" ex
tends congratulations to the youngest
The new journal is exceptionally cred
itable in its typographical "make up,"
is entirely free from vicious quack ad
vertisements and its editorial columns
show vigor and thought without pe
dantic exuberancy or a desire to set its
readers searching for the meaning of
obscure words. It contains the latest
dispatches, full shipping and market
reports and is a newsy and vigorous
competitor for public favor. In poli
tics it is Republican and will represent
tho broad and grand principles of the
party leaving to the party its own or
ganization and not debasing true
journalism by descending into "per
sonal'' politics. It will supply a want,
keenly felt by the Republicans of this
State who have been too'' long at the
mercy of a journal not too much
blamed for scrupulosity or breadth of
view. The subscription list of the
"News" is already, nearly 5000, its
managers have ample means at com
mand and judging from its initial
number it will be a powerful aid in
the development of the great North
western empire where it has found
birth. We "shake" with it mo3t
The bureau of immigration of the
N. P. JR. It. was organized in March of
'82 says the "Oregonian," and the
management immediatelr began opera
tions by advertising ffo purposes and
objects. This bureau represents the
interests of the Northern Pacific R. R.
Co., the Oregon & California R.R. Co.,
the -Oregon Rsilvvay-cc KavTgation-Co.
and the Oregon Improvement Co. The
two former being land grant companies,
the necessity of such a bureau is at
once apparent. But aside from this,
the object of promoting immigration to
Oregon aDd Washington is one that is
highly beneficial to the two latter com
panies, for the reason that it aids
greatly to the business of the O. R. t
N.Co. and attractsconsuraersof the coal
and other products of the Oregon Im
provement Company. The manage
ment of the bureau has been wise, and
judging from results, highly successful.
Durinc ! rot " uutnh -f jta ex
istence nearly 8,000 letters of "inquiry
as to the resources of the Pacific north
west have been received and answered.
When one considers the multiplicity
of questions that a person dissatisfied
with his own locality can ask concern
ing a new country, its railroad and
government lands, the work of re
sponding to this great number of let
ters is of no small magnitude.
An examination of the letters of in
quiry received disclose a range of
languages simply remarkable in variety
of tongue; but because of the care dis
played in making up the personnel of
the bureau, no matter in what 'lan
guage the inquiry may be couched
verbally or by letter, the wants of th
inquirer have been fully understood
and full answers made. Every lettir
received reply, either directly by letwr
or by pamphlet or other comprehen
sive publication. I
Nearly a thousand foreign letters
have been received, Germany, Swdon
and Norway sending the largest num
ber; 500 havo been received from Cal
ifornia, 442 from Kansa3, 324 from
Missouri. 327 from Minnesota, 330
from Illinois, 328 from Iowa, 127 from
Texas, 153 from Michigan, 151 from
Pennsylvania, 190 from Nebraska,.and
proportionate numbers from Maine to
Arizona. A large majority express
dissatisfaction for their locality and
display a thirst for knowledge of Ore
gon and Washington ferritory. Dur
ing the ten months ending with De
cemtiaJl, 1882,5fearly -150.0Q0 pam
phlets or publications descriptive of
the northwest have been mailed at the
bureau. Samples of grain, ryer oats,
hemp, potatoes, apples, peaches and
pears have been called for, and sent to
every part of the United States und
Europe, all free of expense to the
homo seekers. During tho season of
fairs in the east the bureau sent a large
contribution of samples in sheaf and
grain for display in an exhibition car,
which were taken to the different
state fairs, where our products at
tracted marked attention and excited
much inquiry concerning our country.
The exhibit at our bureau comprises
every variety of wheat, oats, rye, bar
ley, corn, flax, fruit 'and grasses and
vegetables, all tastefully arranged and
labeled so as to impart tho fullest and
most trustworthy information to the
visitor. Fully four-fifths of those that
como to the Pacific northwest seeking
new homes, visit the bureau, under
the guidance of an agent who meets
the ships on their arrival at Astoria.
It is estimated that during the last ten
months fully 25,000 visitors have ex
amined the exhibit and been brought
under influence of its mute and unan
swerable testimony to the productive
ness of our country.

An Improper Course.
A late issue of the "Mercury" con
tains a serious charge against a high
State official and a detailed statement
of his having "been found in a gam
bling den in Portland. Gambling is
illegal, not highly moral and most
particularly indefensible in a public
official, but it strikes us that if the
proprietor of the "Mercury" were pos
sessed of information sufficiently au
thentic to ue puousuea as irutn, uie
proper course would have been to have
laid that information before the Dis
trict Attorney so that the law would
have been enforced. "Were there no
gambling dens in Portland there could
be no frequenters of such places and
as the "Mercury" shows a remarkably
intimate knowledge of all things in
famous, the virtue it assumes would
seem more real if it were made the
instrument to suppress evils that it on
ly advertises. Some people, however,
mistake malevolence for virtue and it
is very probable that the official refer
red to was invited, like Zaccheus, to
"come down" and as he did not "come"
received a gush of virtuous morality;
that in a paper that continually pa
rades everything beastly and vile and
prurient before the families of Oregon,
is somewhat remarkable for its impudence.
