What an Oregon Girl Did.
It takes the Oregon girl to make her
way, and no difficulty is too great for
her to overcome. In fact, what man
has done or can't do, it takes the Oregon
girl to accomplish. An example of her
; energy is diplaved in the case of a Dalles
ei twiu u cui ru went uui iuiu uiu
wilds of Crook county and took up a
timber claim. Without kith or kin or,
imagine it, even a ' chaperone," she
superintended the erection of a little
cabiii, fully two miles and a half from
a neighbor, and there, where the coy
otes' yells are nightly heard and where
wild beasts are said to wander, took up
her abode alone. Nor did she summon
assistance to arub out her land ; but by
taking her lime accomplished the diffi
cult task herself, st.on sowing the seed
and while she waited for the harvest,
putting in a garden. The nearest town
is Sisters, eight miles distant, a id to ob
tain supplies this brave girl walks thith
er twice a week, thinking no more of the
journey than would some of her helpless
sisters of going to market two blocks
away. This fall she expects to commute
and the little birds up in that country
are telling of a romance with our Dalles
girl as the heroine. They say her land
joins that of a handsome young rancher,
who has persuaded her that it is not
good for woman to be alone and that af
ter all she is actually contemplating
taking in a partner to share the bent
tits of her labor Dalles Chronicle.
fish Found in Crater Lake.
V. F. A rant says that quantities of
fish have been discovered in Crater
Lake. Before he came down some of
the boys went out in the boat and ss
they were leaving the shore saw sevoral
large trout coming from the deep water,
and a few minutes after there were sev
eral more, and then a large beauty,
about 20 inches long swam by. On Sun
day the boys went across to the Island
and the trout were quite thick there ; so
it has been proven that trout will live
and increase in Crater Lake. Fish were
first put in the Lake in "S7 and several
times since, but this is the first year any
number have been seen in the waters.

LAND IS RESTORED.
319,500 Acres in the Blue Mountain
Reserve Open to Entry
BY PRESIDENT'S ORDER.
All of Which is Classed as Agricul
tural and Grazing Land.
Washington-, Aug. 15. Tin Interior
Department, acting on the recommen
dation of tho Bureau of Forestry and the
General Land Office today formally
authorized the restoration to entry of
319,500 acres of agricultural and grazing
1 ml heretofore included in tho Blue
Mountain Forest Reserved withdrawal,
and 17,000 acres of similar land included
in the Wallowa withdrawal, both in
Eastern Oregon. These lands should
be thrown open to entry not later than
Thursday of this week.
It came to light today that the re
lease from withdrawal of these large
tracts of land was due to personal in
terest taken in the matter by President
scnrRisB to depaktmext.
This was quite a suprise to officials of
the Department, who had instructions
from Secretary Hitchcock to create no
reserves, and to release no land from
withdrawal, and an official familiar with
the facts was dispatched to the White
House to inform the President of the
Secretary's instructions The President
t-ent Governor Chamberlain's letter to
the Department on Friday morning, and
before noon that day it was brought
back to him with a statement of the
case as viewed at the Department. The
President became somewhat angered at
having his instructions ignored in this
manner, and ho handed back Governor
Chamberlain's letter saying:
"Take this back to the land Office and
when it is returned, see that it is ac
companied with a letter stating that
all those lands not needed for reserve
purposes have been restored to entry."
That settled it, and today the letter
was sent to the President by a special
messenger advisinc him that his instruc
tions had been carried out. This is the
second time President Roosevelt has
demonstrated his disapproval of the
method of the Interior Department in
handling public land affairs in Oregon.
Last Winter, after a statnient by Sena
tor Fulton, the President ordered the
Department to desist from the practice
of humiliating Oregon entrymen under
the timber and stone act. This time be
has made it plain tli3t where there are
agricultural lands and grazing lands re
maining in the public domain, they
(hall be placed within reach of entry
men, the same as in other states.
Young Douglas County Man Releas
ed From State Prison.
Saiem, Or., Aug 15. (Special.) Gov
ernor Chamberlain today granted a par
don in favor of James Crawford, who is
serving a six year sentence in the peni
tentiary for criminal assault committed
in Douglas County in 1901.
Crawford has Eerved over half of his
sentence. The reason for the pardon
was the previous good character of the
prisoner, the excessive nature of the
punishment and the representation of a
'arge number of persons who petitioned
ior the pardon.
The petitions on file differ as to the
age of the prisoner, one saying that he
was 20 years old and the other 21. It
is alleged in hie behalf that he was not of
the age of sound discretion, and that the
crime would not have been committed
but for the fact that the girl, who was
under the age of consent, 1C years, was
"The facts are," says the petition,
"that the said accused was guilty of the
crime of statutory rape, as it is some
times called, on account of the girl's be
ing under the statutory age of consent.
The accused having formed an attach
ment for said girl, they had started to
elopo for the purpose of getting married,
and were apprehended and the accused
entered a plei of guilty to the charge."
The petitioners aver that Crawford
has been sufficiently punished, that jus
tice can be best subserved by restoring
the prisoner to his freedom, and give
him a chance to become a good and use
The petition is accompanied by two
letters from friends of the family, favor
ing the pardon. District Attorney Geo,
M. Bi own waived notice of the petition,
but neither the District Attorney nor
the trial judge make any recommenda'
tion. The only objection to the petition
is an anonymous communication from
some one at Canyonville, the home, of
the prisoner's mother. This protest
asks that Crawford be not pardoned on
account of his alleged previous bad
the anonymous letter.
As stated above there was one remon
strance filed and it came under tho guise
of an anonymous letter to Governor
Chamberlain, bearing only tho initials
of two presumed parlies, the text of
"The old lady Yokum has a petition
that she will send or present to you soon
for the pardon of her boy, J. F. Craw
ford. I and many others do hope you
will let him stay there for wo have
young girls ourselves and a boy like him
with tho bad habits he has, has no busi
ness at large. Tho old lady has run all
over two or three counties and secured
names to get what she has on her peti
tion. You will find that the most of the
folks at his home don't want him out.
Now hoping you will let tho matter slide.
we want to give you fair warning for
mere are many ot us. Uur good wishes

CZAR TO THE FRONT
Follow Precedent Established
HEIR PROMTS DECISION.
Arranges Affairs to Meet Exigencies!
in Case of Death.
St. Pktersbcrg, Aug. 17. It is
rumored here today that' the czar is
now making all final arrangements
and will go to the seat of war, follow
ing the precedent established by the
Romanoffs through centuries.
This report has been steadily grow
ing since the birth of a son and heir
to the throne and is given more seem
ing probability by the fact that the
czar is arranging many of his affairs
as though expecting to run the
hazardous risk of war.
The czar has arranged for a suc
cession and regency in case of his
death, and reposes the conduct of the
government practically in the hands
of the czarina until his son shall be
come of age.
The following dispatch was received
from Gen. Kuropatkin.
"There is no change in the situa
tion, and rains are falling everywhere.
The Chunchuses are vry active. The
Japanese are constructing a railway
between Feng Huang Cheng and Leng
Chang Wan: The cars are drawn by
Another dispatch reporting the re
sumption of the Japanese advance in
Manchuria was received from .Mukden
today reading as follows: ''The Jap
anese occupied Sandhan, on our ex
treme lefl flank, August 15, with a
small force. The enemy's infantry
occupied Depindu Shan pass later and
our outposts retreated."
To the war office came a report of
the casualties on the Russian warship
Askold, now at Shanghai, during the
battle Wednesday last. There were
11 men killed and 47 wounded.

At Statesboro, Georgia, After They
Confessed to Officers
THEY KILLED 5 WHITES
And Burned Their Bodies in The
Savannah, Ga., Aug. 17. Follow
ing the enactment of the scenes that
took place at Statesboro yesterday
afternoon, in which two negroes were
burned at the stake by an infuriated
mob, comes the announcement that
the fun of the populace was not ap
peased bv the death of two victims.
A report received here today says
that Handy Bill, another negro al-
eged to have been implicated in the
lodges murder, was burned at the
take last night, and a dispatch re
ceived from Statesboro this after
noon says A. R. Talbot and A. J.
Gaines, colored preachers, were
vnched with Handv Bill.
The mode of execution of the two
atter is not known, but it is pre
sumed it was along lines similar to
those used in the former cases.
The negroes were charged with the
rilling of Henry Hodges and his wife
and three small children and burning
their bodies in their home near
The men were captured at Gainw'
house, and as Gaines resided several
miles from Statesboro, it is impossible
for the correspondent at that town to
verify the report of last night's execu
While much excitement still pervails
in Statesboro, the presence of the mili-
ia has had the effect of calming down
what at one time looked like the begin
ning of a riot that would end onlv in the
loss of manv lives.
Appearances now indicate that law
and order will have resumed its normal
state in a short time.

London, Aug. 17. Japan has made
a demand on China, practically in ib.9
nature of an ultimatum, that she im
mediately enforce her neutrality in
the case of the protected cruiser Ask
old and the torpedo-boat destroyer
Grozovoi, now at Shanghai. Japan
pointed out that the time limit, 214
hours, permitted by international law,
had expired, and that Japan therefore
was at liberty to take such action as
may seem to her expedient.
At tho Japanese Legation here it
was expressed that the Tokio govern
ment had no intention of remaining
quiescent if Russia attempted to com
pel China to give asylum to her men-of-war,
and authorized repairs at her
ports which would enable them to re
sume belligerent operations.
BUILD FIRE BREAK
In the Ashland Forest Reserve on
Which Work is Under Way.
Is at Ashland Getting Data for a
Report to the Government.
Ashland, Aug., 15. S. C. Bartrum,
the federal forest reserve supervisor, is
registered at Hotel Oregon, while in
Ashland for a few days on official busi
ness in connection with tho Aahland
Forest Reserve. Mr. Bartrum's super
vision extend over the southern division
of the big Cascade Reserve and he says
his territory is as yet entirely free from
and devastation by forest fires this sea
son. The smoke that fills so many of
the valleys now comes from fires on the
In an interview with a Tiding repre
sentative Mr. Bartrum said he had
come to Ashland for the purpose of
making an examination and securing
data that will asaiet him to report to the
government the necessity for the imme
diate completion of the fire break now
in course of construction and which his
subordinates are endeavoring to estab
lish under very difficult conditions in
the Ashland Forest Reserve. The Im
portance of this reserve to the city of
Ashland and its water supply is well
understood by Mr. Bartrum and he is
anxious to secure information and en
couragement from the city to assist him
in furthering hia plans for its perma
nent improvement which call for a
special appropriation by the govern
The establishment of a fire break on
the north and east sides of this reserve
was approved and actual work upon it
begun about eight months ago under
the immediate charge of Forest Ranger
W. G. Kropke. It was thought at first
that this work could be accomplished
through the exercise of the regulations
for the free use of timber and through
the sale of timber from the reserve. Mr.
Bartrum says that to depend entirely on
these methods of procedure it will take
an indefinite time to complete the work
and he believes that the surrounding
prevalent conditions make the necessity
of better protection for it from fire
imperative and the need for the imme
diate completion of the fire break ur
gent. There are private timber lands
contiguous to the reserve, he says, par
ticularly to the east and north, that are
being rapidly denuded in the usual
wasteful way and the tops, remnants,
brush and rubbish are left in a verita
ble, tangled slash, sure to result ulti
mately in their destruction by fire,
greatly endangering the reserve.
THE HARVEST TIME
What the Farmers Say Regarding
the Various Crops.
The past week has been dry, warm.
and in most sections quite smoky. The
grain harvest has proceeded uninter
ruptedly, and in the Willamette valley
and the southern part of the State most
of the fall grain has been threshed.
Fall wheat yields cast of the Cascades
continue excellent, but in the Willam
ette valley and southern Oregon only an
average crop has been secured. Earlv
seeded spring wheat made a good crop,
and that seeded late is turning out bet
ter than expected, notwithstanding
which, much of it has already been cut
for hay on account of tho straw being
too short to be h arvested with the bind
rs. Oata ore below the average in
quautity. Barley yields are variable,
but mostly good. The quality of all
grain this year is better than usual.
Pasturage is getting very short and
the milk supply in the dary districts is
diminishing. Hop burs are forming
nicely and the vines continue free of lice.
It is expected that even with favorable
weather from now on the hop crop will
be smaller than last yea r, notwithstand
ing the increased acreage. Corn is do
ing nicely, but it would be benefitted by
rain, while potatoes and gardens are
actually suffering for moisture; late
planted potatoes w ill, however, turn out
well if good rains occur within the next
two weeks. Early apples, Crawford
peaches and blackberries arc ripe and
The Klamath Canal Company have
over fifty men now at work on their
tunnel. The working tunnol will be
4000 feet long; of this, 1400 feet, or over
one third is completed. Thoy are now
digging about 200 feet per week, but this
will bo increased now that their pump
ing equipment has arrived.
Developments at Winchester.
Portland, Aug. 1C Winchester, on
the North Umpqua, live miles north of
Rosoburg, is to havo a largo saw mill,
planing mill, sash and door factory and
other wood working plants. F. J.
Blakely, of tho Rosoburg Light & Water
company and the nutivo promoter of the
Umpqua Development company, is in
the city, accompanied by T. R. Sheridan
a Rosoburg capitalist, also interested in
these enterprises. The company lias a
larfje dam across tho North Umpqua, a
swift, turbulent stream, but holding a
largo body of water. This furnishes the
power for Roseburg's electric lighting
system, and is now being raised 5 feet.
Mr. Blakely says that this is tho only
place to conveniently handle 10,000,000,
000 feet of flno timber growing up the
Umpqua river and its tributaries, and
tho river affords the finest wator power
in Oregon south of Oregon City. A saw
mill is being constructed for cutting
material to bo used in the improvements
hut a mill of 100,000 feet daily capacity
will he built on the opposite side of the
river. It is expected that this sawmill
will be only the beginning of a number
of wood working factories and mills to
lie established there. It is the intention
to construct an electric railway to Ro e
burg, five miles distance, and addition
al dynamos will be installed to supply
Roseburg with electric power for small
manufactories. Portland Journal.

Gifts to tke Public Seised.
Among the first to make substantial
donations to the new high school libra
ry are H. C. Stanton and Free Johnson.
The former has presented the school
with Bancroft s History of the I'scinc
Coast, comprising 33 volume, which
cost over $1W, and the latter a complete
set of Encyclopedia BritUnica, compris
ing 2S volume, rained at $75. These
valuable works, together with books in
the library in the public school that re
late to brandies of study in the new
school, will form the nucieos for the
new library, which will be gradnally en
larged by donations from citizens and
books purchased with monev allowed
annually by the county for that pnrpose.
This interest manifested in the Hose-
