Mineral or Jfon-Minenil-
FiOnttlip tenor of late tltspalcl.es to
the city papers? an Interior Deart
ment dicisiou is expected that may
cause great commotion in this Statp,
in reference to which the "Bullotin''
remarks as follows:
iPuring tlia past month the land
claimed by the railroad above Redding
has l.een partly examined aud graded.
,aJ thr township, havu been fully
reported upon. The laml in thee
townships falling. vi,hin tho railroad
(;'."' nbi iu u.cingc Jilu V)L ilxjuut.
1.20 per acre. This is less than ouo
halt of the Government price. Intend
iug settldra will be interested in these
J'iniln, nd tb grading aiow going on
willonabld tliflia easily to usct-rtnin the
cost of a ranch in that locality. It
i'h rumerod that the Department at
Washington is about to tako such ae
tion with legard to lands originally
callubi mineral as will raise a commo
tion all oer. this coast. Iu the origi
nal survet tf lands, certain trac's, on
supurticial examiuatin, wero dexig
nated on the maps as 'oiineral, and
were consequently withheld from occu
pmcy by agriculturists, except where
the nornniner! character was proved.
A verv large amount of so-called ruin
end laud was shown to bo non mineral,
and tettler weie permitted to ostab
luh homes upon it. Snneof the most
properous sections of .the State are
situated upr.u such lands, tho prosper
ity befiig duo to the fact that thuy are
peculiarly suited to fruits raising and
viticulture. The tawu of Nuwi-astlu
and nlany adjacent orchards and vine
yards are situated upon luudi once
called mineral. A very large amount
of such land falls within tho railroad
grant, and from thiilroad rettlers
havo purchased. It is understood that
now the Department at Washington
proposes to consider the original re
iOct final, ami to admit nn i.roof of
tho nou uiiueral character of tho lands,
h has hitherto been the rule. Tho
implication of the new principle will
ipply to lainlj now occupied by actual
saltier, and nlso to lauds within the
railreal grants. It will unsettle tho
title to many tracts of land already
nndr cultivation, causing widespread
lixiurbanee. The old rule, which al
lowed lands originally called mineral
to be taken by agricultural settlers
apon pro f of the non-mineral char
a'ytPfof the sections applied for, was
nuver complained of, and has encour
aed settlement. The proposed new
rule will invitably check a prpseut
tendency on the part of homo seeker
to puh fpttlpmOut into hitherto un
reclaimed territory, that will never
s-rvo any gooJ purposo until it goes
into occupation aud use.
Gov. Squire, of Washington trrri
ory, in his re on to Secretary La
r.ar, gives the population of the terri
tory at 129,438, an increase of 30,930
in two jeans. The assessed value of
property is. $50,4S4,437, and thura
are yet 23,000,000 acres of public
and unsurveyed, of which 10,000,000
ure good agricultural aud timber land.
The governor states that by the ter
ritorial ceua of 1885 there were
3,276 Chinese residents m tha territory,
lie says the recent attacks oil tee
Chinese in that territory have grown
out of the fact that Chinamen are con
tinually coming across the border from
British Columbia, in violation of the
restriction act. The governor suggests
an increased customs force on theborder,
a revision of the restriction act, and
the revision or abrogation of the Bur
lingamc treaty, necessary for the tran
quillity of the territory.

Tha special session "of the Legis
lature did little else but for the benefit
of Portland. Besides electing a Uni
ted States Senator yery little general
legislation was done. The principal
acts j assed were A very stringent
law against prize fighting, either as a
principal, second, backer, trainer or
stake bolder, or even arranging a fight;
creating a Police Commission ior tho
city of Portland and taking away from
the Mayor and Council all power rela
tive to the government-of the policp,
the Board, to consist f threo .residents
of Portland, to be appointed by the
Governor, and after July, 1887, to be
elected, and appropriating 15,000 to
build a wagon road to tho Pine Creek
minc3 in Baker county, the tendency
being to induce ores to ceme westward
to Portland and prevent them toeing
east to Omaha. A very important
measure for Portland was the amend
ment to the city charter, creatine; a
.Water Commission, to consist of fif
teen wealthy property owners, who
aro empowered to issue bonds to the
amount of 8700,000, to bear no more
than 5 per ceut. interest (non taxab'e),
afid build tho city water works, or buy
the plant of the Portland Water Com
pany, fix rales, eta, for all of which
the state pays 10,000.

Trouble in Utah..
Humors of trouble adme from Sllt
Lake, having their origin in the shoot
ing of a member of the holy priesthood
by a Deputy United Slates Marshal,
whom the Mormon priest, and three
brother assassins, attempted to blood
stone several nights ago, while wpiid
itighis way .through the streets of Salt
'Like to his home. The assassins way
laid the deputy, and while attempting
to beat his brains out with a poijco
club, the deputy umptyed his rove'yer
into the stomach of one, of tbenaj male-
mgjiiinexceedinglysick in spito of his
dowuTeillcarm'entshlch'' were war
ranted by the ctureh authorities to
be bullet-proof. The assassins fled,
leaving their wounded companion iu
the street, and tho deputy surren
derd .himself to the Government offi
cials. The wounding of the priest
fired the polygamous souls and dire
vengeance has beep threatened Govern
ment officers and all- Americans, who
are desirous of seeing Utah placid
within the laws and under the fo'ds of
the flag. This is the first iustahct in
I thirty rears where the church has
failed to Let away with its game, as, is
attested by tho unmarked. grr.ves of
five hundred victims in different por
tions of the termory. There is a
smouldering volcano in the Kingd mi
of John Taylor, and eruption is liable
to take plica any day; yet the Govern
inent of ih United States is either
too dull to comprehend qr too indiff
erent tD protect itself. The tiuio has
past when further trifling with this
Mormon question should be indulged
in, wheiyts solution isiin the hands i.f
the Government and 'is so simple
merely the passing of a la depriving
the Mormons of all political rights and
assuming control of the territory of
Utah, na it hasoftbi District of Col
umbia. The Albany "Hurald" says that the
people of Salem are bidding high to
have tho Oregon Pacifio Railroad go
there. It, tLorwfore, advises thd citi
zens to hurry and raise the 840,000
subsidy required to bring the read to
Albany. Of this amount, 30,000 hus
already been subscribed. The "Her
ald" further says: Col. E. '1. Hogg,
the president of the road, who has
bpeu in Oregon for some time, will
leave for New York in a few days, and
before ho returns the route, we are in
formed, will be definitetylScated, and
unless the requirud subsidy is raised
the road will not pass through Albany,
and probably not tmough Linn county.
The Commissioner of Pensions to
day issued an order that from and
after January 1st next chiiuauts shall
be required, before pension agents
withhold any portion of attorney's fees
certified by the Coinuiission&r of Pen
sions, to make ap affidavit stating pay
ment. The order further providus
that where claimants are unable to
make an affidavit in the form prescrib
ed, and in the opinion of the pension
agent reasonable doubt exists as to tho
fact of such prior payment, that fact
shall be certified to tho Commissioner
of Punvona for his consideration and
