LANE'S ANNEXATION SCHEME
The Commercial Gab of Cottage Grove is active in an
effort to have that part of the Bohemia mining district
that is located in Douglas county annexed to Lane for the
convenience of the miners who are compelled to go to
Roseburg to file their mining locations and proofs of la
bor. The distance is so great that it takes extra time
and causes added expense that would be eliminated if the
territory were added to Lane and they could come to Eu
gene. Petitions for annexation are in circulation in Eu
gene and are being freely signed. The matter will come
before the legislature and will be opposed by Douglas
county. Eugene Register.
When the good wagon road up the North Umpqua river,
which at present terminates at a point a few miles south
west of the Bohemia mines, is completed, which it will be
at no distant date, Roseburg will be a more convenient
and nearer county seat point for the Bohemia miners
than is Eugene at the present time.
Simply from the fact that Douglas county laid down
her hands and quietly submitted to Lane county gobbling
up a six mile strip of the Douglas coast territory two
years ago, our northern neighbor has developed greater
ambitions and higher asperations in the land grabbing
business, and has become greedy for all of the tax in
come and other remuneration from the valuable natural
resources which are being developed on her borders. If
successful in annexing the Bohemia mining distnct, wt-
presume Lane's next move will be to annex that por
tion of the Blue river mines located in Linn county and
the fine timber belt on the south slope of the Calapooia
and the North Umpqua mountains in Douglas county. It is
time a halt was called for all time in lane county's land
NO GOOD ROADS LEGISLATION THIS SESSION.
Senator Latimer, of South Carolina, the father of the
good roads movement in Congress, reluctantly admits that
all hope for any legislation along that line this session
must be abandoned. The slogan of "economy" that has
been sent out by the leaders of both houses has sounded
the death-knell of special legislation requiring great sums
of money to render it effective. The senator's idea i
embodied in a bill favorably reported last session by the
committee on agriculture and now on the Senate calen
dar. It provides for the creation of a bureau of high
ways in the department of agriculture, to be composed of
three members, the duty of which will be to investigate
orood road building, and carrying an appropriation of
The movement, which, up to the last session, had been
treated rather iocularly. gained standing through the
favorable report of the committee on agriculture, coo
sidered one of the most important in the Senate.
Senator Latimer, in the hope that agitation will not
harm this measure, will endeavor to have a number of
public hearings on it, with a view to pushing the legisla
tion in the next Congress.
A report says Secretary of the Interior Hitchcock wil
be retained tin othce a while longer in order to assist in
the prosecution of land thieves. The agony of this man
must be something terrible when he thinks of the way
"Uncle Sam" is being robbed. He did not want to bor
row $400 with which to secure 160 acres of land under
the timber and stone act; insisted upon the homesteader
complying with every requirement of law and insulted
the people of Oregon by sending "bluffers" like C. A. M
Schlierhoiz to the state as special agents. This para
graph does not allude to Messrs Wilson or Jones. They
are gentlemen. A few months ago several townships
the Koseburg distnct were tied up in forest reserves.
Now Mr. Hitchcock officially announces in the Roseburg
Plaindealer that these lands are restored to settlement
and entry. Oakland Owl.
Mat Game W arden J. v . Baker makes a good many
practical recommendations and suggestions in his annual
report. He would limit a days bag of ducks to 20 in
stead of 50, but does not limit the number of people that

who "mistook him for a deer."
The very fact that our sister county, Loos, is prepar
ing to make a big fine exhibit at the fair is already at
tracting many people's attention to that exceedingly re
sourceful, bat slightly developed region.
Those who contend that women have no business ability

has developed all the shrewdness of a Wall street
Theodore Tharston Geer is still of the private opinio
that Senator Mitchell should have left his post of duty at
Washington at a most inopportune time, and crossed the
continent twice to give a little immaterial testimony in
response to that subpoena in the land fraud case and
Mr. Geer continues to express this private opinion public
ly through the columns of his paper, the Salem Statesman.
We wonder why? Of course his senatorial aspirations do
not prompt him to keep on harping alone and unsupport
ed on this small matter. But now that Senator Mitchell
has decided to return in response to this subpoena. Theo
dore Thurston will probably regret Jthat he expressed so
many private opinions.

She is an elderU lady, who went from
Denmaik to Utah in 1H72 and left the
Mormon church in 19 9. She wai asked
concerning the obligations taken in the
temple, and was requested to repeat as
much of the ceremonies as she could
In a voice shaken with emotion, Mrs
Klliot said that the obligations were so
indelicate she could not lear to repeat
them. Chairman Burrows told her to
take her own time and not be em
barrassed. The witness said the first
oath administrated to those who par
ticipated was that if they did not want
to go any further and take the oaths
they should turn back and go out.
By slow degrees Mrs. Klliott repeated
the oaths of vengeance ami the various
penalties ascribed for revealing any part
of the ceremonies. During her testi
mony concerning the penalties of mutila

continually, and appeared to proceed
with difficulty. After saying that eacl
persou taking the endowments agreed

Elliott said it would be impossible for
her to go any further.

Opinion on Local Option Law.
In the opinion of Attorney General
Crawford rerently given in regard to the
sale of liquor on the State Fair Grounds
it was held, at the same that the power
of city councils is snended in any
town or precinct of a town wh cb adopa
prohibition under the local option law
inasmuch as that law makes special
reference to municipal charters.
Thus the local option law supersedes
charter provisions, permitting city
councils to issue licenses.
Because the local option law makes
no mention of the act relating to the
sale of liquor at the State Fair, the rule
is held to prevail that the general law
will not repeal by implication a prior
special act on the same subject.
