pDuring the past six months the
press in the northern .states has been

At Grand Rapids, Mich., last week a
funeral cortege had gone to the Cath
olicfcathedral and the casket contain
ing the corpse was deposited before
the altar and while the funeral cere
monies were going on a dispute oc
curred on the outside of the cathe-;
dral between the union men who drove
the hearse and acted as carriers of!
the dead and a number of non-union
men who drove the carriages of the
mourners and friends. A general
fight resulted and the union men
mopped up the earth with their non
union brethren, who abandoned their
vehicles and fled to a place of safety.
After the ceremonies were over at
the cathedral the union men would
not drive in the procession with the
scab drivers, and the burial services
were delayed until the friends of the
departed agreed to have only onion
men to drive the corpse and the!
mourners to the grave.
The following letter explains itself.
We have left out the name, address
and date for proving up, that is all.
The letter if any man doubts can be
seen at this office:
Roseburg, Ore., July 21, '03.
Referring to your Timber and Stone
application which is now being adver
tised for final proof before this office,
I have to advise you that it has been
found necessary to extend the time
of accepting said proof to the
day of , 1903. Your notice will,
however, be accepted as advertised.
,. , " , f '
This has been found necessan for ,
tne reason tnat a special Agent irom i
the General Land Office has been as
signed to this office to make a thor
ough investigation' ' into each case
wfiere said final proof is made. The
examination by the said Special
Agent is at such length that we find
it impossible to accept more, than
from two to three proofs, in one day.
The records in this office "show that
we have from five to ten proofs set
for each dav for the next four
mohtns. ' We are dplrfg this . for the
purpose of saving you the expense of
from ten to fifteen days delay in sub
mitting your prippf, as, is the, case
with a large number of persons who
are npw appearing at .this, office.
