MONDAY, APRIL 24, 1905.
Onlv five times in the past 225
years has Easter come later than
did this year. The latest possible
date is April 25th, which is two daye
later than it was in this year of our
Lord. In Roseburg, as usual, the
day was appropriately observed by
special services at all of the churches
There were large congregations and a
wealth of beautiful flowers and Eas
ter bonnets. The olden and oft re
peated story of the resurrection was
listened too with no waning interest.
It is on this day that the lenten gloom
is dispelled by the gladness of the
Easter carols and as a writer well
says: "The story of the resurrection
is one of which we never tire. And
somehow the poetry of this wonder
ful story gets into the churchbell and
the minister's sermon on this day
Skeut.cism slinks out of sight, and
Faith reigns supreme.
Not in any spirit of iconoclasm
shall we deal with the Easter hope
But to the story of this resurrection
may be added other chapters not so
often told. For Easter is as old as
the human race. It was a Pagan day.
In all ages men have known of a res
urrection. In all ages have they
welcomed the approached of the
Spring, coming as it does after the
Winter has laid its icy finger on all
that is beautiful and joyful in Nature,
an icy finger that seems to be the
touch of death. So it seems, but
every year the Spring, with its burst
ing buds, its unfolding leaves, its
creeping grass and meadow flowers,
that come when the old earth is in a
position to get a few more or less
verticle darts from the sun. proves
that in Nature there is no such thing
as death.
And so the human heart, when the
Easter tide rises to the full, the soft
Spring winds blowing and the air
fragrant with flower-miracles, enters
into the joy of the resurrection, and
proclaims that there is in human lives
no such thing as death."
In a recent interview with an Iowa
reporter CoL Hofer of the Salem
Journal had this to say
of the bind
fraud cases:
The timber land frauds have been
enormous. The government has de
fidnd to nnt an end to them. But
that is what the government has al
ways been doing. I can remember as
a young man all about the Iowa
school land frauds. I can remember
how lartre bodies of timber land in
Minnesota and Michigan were gob
bled up and acquired by capatilists
and monopolies who in many instances
became millionaires and found their
final resting place in the United
States senate. In the same way very
little public land has been acquired in
Oregon by strict compliance with
law. The same is true of every west
ern state. The big corporations and
syndicates are acquiring it today and
have been acquiring it under the lieu
land laws that were worked in con
nection with the forest reserve policy
of which Grover Cleveland was the
sponsor. The public men indicted in
Oregon may have been technically
guilty or negligent, but that any sen
ator or congressman in Oregon has
been a party to corruption directly or
indirectly no one seriously believes
and they will all be acquitted. There
will be convictions, however, of those
who have openly and flagrantly con
spired to deprive the government of
public lands and stricter rules will be
enforced in future as a result of the
investigations ordered by President
The operations of the referendum
law are not too satisfactory to some
of the county officers of the state at
the present time. Since the appro
priations bill was held up by the re
ferendum recently filed at Salem, the
sheriff and other officers who convey
criminals or insane persons to Salem
are obliged to defray the expenses of
the trip with their own funds. All
they can secure in the way of re-im-
bursement from the state is a sort of
certificate or due bill which bears no
interest and which, if the holder
must absolutely raise money on it,
may possibly be cashed by some
banker or speculator at a discount of
15 per cent. In the meantime funds
of the state, destined for this pur
pose, are lying idle. This condition
of things will continue until the next
regular election in June, 190G. Then
if the obstructing movement is up
held in the election there will be no
relief until the next legislative ses
sion. Ul course it is not on account
of expenses of this character that
the referendum is invoked but the
appropriations bill contains many
items and the referendum petitioners
in order to get at theii object were
obliged to put the whole bill to sleep.
The people will have before election
a good long time to consider the
matter in all its phases and mean
while the conveyance to Salem of
criminal or insane charges will be an
employment not eagerly sought.
A story is told of a certain Justice
of the Peace a very self-sufficient
person who previous to trial of a
cause had reached a conclusion as to
a question of law highly satisfactory
to himself. He refused to entertain
an argument by the opposing counsel.
"If vour Honor pleases," counsel
pleaded, "I should like to cite a few
authorities upon the point." But
counsel was sharply interrupted by
the Justice, who stated:
The Court knows the law and is
thoroughly advised in tne premises;
it has given its opinion and that set
tles it."
"It was not," continued counsel,
with an idea of convincing your Hon
or that you were wrong, but I did
want so much to show you what
fool old Blacketone was."

An old criminal was once asked
what was the first step that led him

Convicts On the Roads
Salem, Ore., April 22 In order to
make a further test of the problen
of using convict labor on the
public highways. Governor Chamber
lain has arranged to work 40
convicts in three separate gangs on the
Marion county roads for a few weeks.
Marion county will bear the expense of
employing six guards to take charge of
the men while at work.
The county will also pay the cost of
transporting the prisoners to their work
and will pay 5 cents a day for each man
to pay the increased cost of food for the
men on account of their doing heavier
work. Tbe convicts will be worked
within four miles of tbe prison.
The new hand which is soon to be organized in this city will be one that
the citizens will have reason to be proud of. Roseburg has long enjoyed the
name of having one of the beet bands in the state, especially during the life of the
old K. of P. Band.
PROF JOHN A. NORLINO Johu A. Norling was born in
Sweeden 35 years ago and came to this country IS years ago. Eleven years
ago he took up his residence in Minnesota and has since called that state hia
home. He recently was attlit-ted with the wild west fever, and through corres
pondence with friends decided to try Roseburg as a western home. Prof. Norl
ing's experience in bands has been varried, he having served as leader and band
master of the following organizations: Barnums A Bales Circus band, two years;
45th regiment U. S. band in the Philippine Islands, 1899, 1900 and 1901, Sevea
band representing the state of Minnesota at the Chicago Worlda fair, and for the
last three years as band-master of the 1st regiment band of the N D. National

The Kramer group of mines, compris
ing ten claims on Whiskey Creek, a
tributary at Rogae river in Josephine
county, are generially known as among
the best producers in Southern Oregou
and have just reached that state of de
velopment where they should soon lie
come large dividend payers. This
groupe of mine has long been known aa
one of the beet and most valuable
quartz properties in this section of the
state, assays from which run all the way
from ten up into the thousands of dol

situated lor successful operations, plenty
of water and umber for (net being

There is a tine lot of rich ore on the

Recently a company was incorporated
under the laws of the state of Oregon to
more fully develop this mining property
and operate it on a more extensive
scale. The company is composed of well
knomn, tubrtatial and reliable iocal men
whose enterprise, energy and business
qualifications assures the success of this
big mining enterprise. A small amount
of slock is being placed on the market at
the unusual low price of ten cents per
