Heretofore each attorney has had
to search the session laws page by
page to find the changes and note

annotating a code has been such
big task that many attorneys left it
undone. With the aid of the list pre

BOOTH, KELLY CO.
Portland, April r So far as the land
band an concerned, the investigations
of tin1 federal cran 1 jnrv now in maioa
will probably Dover do important cases
save that ot the liooth-kollv Lumber
company. An army of witnesses has
been mhoeiaed to testify concerning
the metluxls by which this corporation
acquired its immenee holdings) of public
lands, ami the gran I jury's inquisition
is necessarily procecdiin slowly.
The lobby outside of the grand jury
room is crow.lo.l daily with witnesses
and secret service men, BMat of the
tormer from Koseburs;, Cottage Grove
and other towns in southern Oimma
Many of them are men who took up
claims which were subsequently trans
ferred to the Booth-Kelly catnpanv.
.1 . V Ooofc, who was a parly to the
sale of lands to the company three vears
ago, says that this aM the only trans
action of the triad whi.'h he had. At
that time he and .1. 1 Jones, of Cottagf
l irove, who was jointly interested with
himself in the property, sold to the
Hooth-Kelley I.umlier company aluut
10,000 acres of railroad land- and from
2.000 to 3,000 acres of other lands.
Mr. Cook says that he and Jones
owned all of the land w hich they sold,
and none of it had been acq aired for
the purpose of sellitii: it to the com
pany. He declares that the transaction
was perfectly regular.

Closely interwoven with the investiga
tion of the Booth-Keiley L hat com
pany is the inquiry into the conduct
of the Roseburg land office. J. I".
Bridges and .1. H. Booth, the suspended
ufficiala of the office, are both in Port
Land under subpoena, and the former
lias already been subjected to a pro
tracted examination before the grand
jury. It has bean known for boom time
past that valuable information was oh
tained from Bridges and Booth by the
secret service agents.
The first witness to lie examined to
day was I. Thomas Aiiee, of Mapleton.
He was followed by I 'h.irles Barker and
William Tipton, of Koseburg. The in
quisition into the land frauds was sus
pended yesterday lout enough to jermit
S. C. Bartrum, superintendent ;of the
Cascade forest reserve, to present mart
evidence concerning the illegal -setting
of forest tires, and other witnesses will
probable be heard upon the same suls-
jeet before the gran 1 jury concludes its
labors. This is, however, wholly uncon
nected with the land frauds, the chief
topic of investigation.

AFTER THE FOREST
A dispatch from Portland says: It is
known that the jury ie investigating, or
shortly w ill tie, the malicious setting out
of forest fires in the Cascade forest re
serve. Supervisor S. C. Bartrum ae
peared before the jury Tuesday, and it
is further known that his presence here
is in connection with forest fire offenses.
Mr. Bartrum is doing all in his pnmar
to bring about a full investigation of this
matter, and it is believed that the GoT
ernment has a strong case against some
one for committing this crime.
It is understood that no indictments
will be returned by the grand jury until
the entire work of investigation by the
present jurors has been completed,
when all findings will be known simul

MADE A GREAT HIT
The laughable farce coined v in three
acts, entitled "Captain Racket, " was
eery creditably presented to a large and
well pleased audience at the Koseburg
theater Monday evening by local talent
for the benefit of the Koseburg Orches
tra, which furnished excellent music for
the Occasion. The opening mil-it at
Mmbar was "The Village Orchestra
Kehorsal," a burlesque specialty in
w hich the orchestra members appeared
ia typical rural costumes and rioalod
lion h merriment.
In the production Of the play, all the
participants acquitted themselves ad
mirably and in some respects sustained
their reopen tire roles as creditably as
similar characters have been sustained
by traveling troops which have visited
Koseburg the past season. Koy Bellows
as "Captain Racket." of the National
tiuaid, "a lawyer when he has nothing
else to do and a liar all the time," cer
tainly interpreted this unique character
in a most satisfactory manner and sup
plied a full share of the comedy.
M. K. Wright, as "Timothy Tollman,"
the Captain's friend who "married iur
money ami is sorry for it," impersonated
the "henpecked husband, in moat
approved and up-to-date fashion, atbifti
his penchant lor luting with the Cap
tain's prettv wife, and his periodical in
clination to overload with champaign,
Math to the discomfiture of Mrs. Toll
man, were all )wrtrayed as if by an
adebt in this special comedy role. The
character of the somewhat jealous Mrs.
Tollman, was ably sustained by Miss
Agnes Pitchford, and her efforts to
maintain the dignity of her household
by repe.it.- remonstrances with her
rather recreant souse, afforded much
"Mr. Dalroy, the captain's father-in
law, a jolly cove," was excellently por
trayed by Thos. Carlon : and John
Ryan, as "Hobson, a waiter from the

the trials of poor Timothy, as well as to
those of his nephew, the gay captain.
The star rate of ' 'Clarice," the cap-

by Miss tiertrude Kast in her usual
