Accident at Libby Mine Makes
Impossible To Operate Full
MEN ARE VERY SCARCE
And Tills Also Is Causing Sonic
Trouble and Annoynnco
Owing to an accident at the Libby
mine a few days ago, the place will
not be operated at full capacity for
at least two or three more days, and
on this account the Breakwater will
not bo able to take a full cargo of
coal thlB trip. This trip she was
able to take only fuel coal.
The mine Is not closed down en
tirely, but only the upper part can
be operated. The lack of men to
work In the mine Is being felt very
much at the present time also.
Mr. Chandler states that men are
exceedingly hard to get at the pres
ent time, owing to the general open
ing up of lumber camps in this lo
cality. The accident to the mine will cost
in the neighborhood of $1,000. It
was not duo to carelessness on any
of the workmen's part, but Is one of
those unlookcd for accidents which
cannot be helped. A car fell and
broke props and machinery. It comes
at a bad time. ,

people of western Oregon at this
time. Said he yesterday, in a written
communication to The Oregonlan:
"Salem, Ore., April 12. (To the
Editor). Two able and excellent
articles have been published in The
Oregonlan recently, concerning th-3
lands granted by congress to the Ore
gon & California Rnllroad and ex
tending from Portland to the Califor
nia line. One of these appeared on
January 13, and the other on Febru
ary 2 of this year. It Is my purpose
to relate the legal and historical mat
ter with which these papers dealf.
During the last campaign, the matter
of these grants was a subject of in
terest, and I request opportunity
through the Oregonlan to report to
the people what I have done thuslai".
This grant of many millions of aero

the development find setrlement of

upon which the neople art1 Justly ask

The terms of the grant are specific,
and it Is no Injustice to ask to have
that done which was agreed to be
done. The lands were fo br sold in

tracts not fo exceed 160 acres to each

grant congress followed In tt general
way Its policy of dealing vlth the
public lands and It was clearly inu
purpose of con-:r"ts to proent t4
grant being converted loto a land
monopoly, either by ho'dlng the
lands out of market, or by selling
them in large bodies.
In company with Senator Bourne,
I called upon Attorney-General Bona
parte, and presented to him the
memorial adopted by the Oregon
legislature at Its last HeIon, and
made a statement of the cast. About
two weeks later we called .inaln upon
the Attarney-General and wore great

gated the matter. It Is cur under
standing that the department of Jus
tice will undertake the enforce
