agreement the Indians are to re

the Indians are to have placed to
their credit with the treasurer of
the United States, which sha'l bear
interest at the rate of 5 per cent,
per annum, which interest shall be
paid to the Indians in the shape of
an annuity, payable at the agency
on the 1st of March of each year.
When the allotted lands of the res
ervation shall become liable to tux

shall pay the annual taxes to the
proper officers out of the annual in

treasury. It further j rovii.es that
when the secretary of the interior
becomes convinced that the Indians
are capable of taking care of them
selves, and that it would be to their
interest to do so, he may then pay
the remaining fund to litem, l-'ive
sections of land are reserved from
allotment or future f-etllement.

"Sec. 1. That said agreement

Skc. a. That for the purpose of
carrying the provisions of this act
into effect there is hereby appro-'
priated, the sum of one hundred

be paid to the Indians in the man

Provided, That none of the money

the payment of any judgement that
has been or may hereafter be ren
dered under the provisions of the
act of Congress approved March 3,
1 891, entitled " 'An act to provide
for the adjudication and payment
of claims arising from Indian depre

That sections sixteen and thirty

egon for the support of tlie common

the balance of the land so ceded
shall be disposed of until further

homestead law: Provided, however,
That each settler, under and in ac
cordance w ith the provisions ojsaid

justice was done this man Gest
would be made to disgorge and re
fund to the court every dollar which
he bilked the road out of, while
masquerading in the guise of "re
ceiver's attorney." When both
Mr. ray and Mr. Gest swore 111
court last spring that they were no
longer connected in the law busi
ness as partners they must have
sworn falsely or the complaint just
filled by them in the suit referred
to above is not true. It might be
possible that there could be a more
despicable action none tnan was
done by this man Gest in acting in
the dual copacity that he has all
summer, but it would be hard to
conceive one. To reach out with
one hand and take from the hard
working laborer a shaieofhis uaus
when that share was not sufficient
to keep him and his family, and at
the same time be a parly to a scheme
that was to beat him out of the
pitiful remainder, is an act too low
to enter the mind of any but the
lowest of God's creatures. He
should he made to disgorge and
then disbarred from ever practicing
in an Oregon court. There ore

The law firm of Messrs. John P.
Fay and C. H. Gest have sued the
famous bondholders committee of
New York, the principal members
of which are Warton, Blair and
others, for the sum of $41,705 for
legal services rendered in the Ore
gon Pacific muddle which services
or the greater part thereof have been
rendered since March of last year.
It will be remembered that since
that time Mr. C. II. Gest of this
same law firm was also acting in the
capacity of receiver's atturncv for
:,U'.4.,',,r),,','' city 'hcV a ha,arV iKm lhe ,,cI,,ct1 ' that is dishonest
ViiiXKT a. MI1.1.KI1 exchequer of s.iid road that has' .--.
If a person wishes to "point out
the personification of all that is dis
honest, all he would have to do
would be to point to the Oregon
Pacific railroad and say, "behold."
From the very conception of this
road dishonesty has blazed the way
and roguery and trickery have fol
lowed close in its lead. The orig
inal wagon road grant was obtained
by questionable means and was
earned and confirmed by means that
were even more questionable
Next came the incorporation of the
railroad and honesty was the thing
most tabooed at that time. In the
construction of the road honesty
was a lost science and played 110
part thcrerin, but the standard rule
was to beat all, from the bond
holder down to the pick holder,
and it is a shameful record that
this tule was carried out to the
minutest particular. The laborer
was delrauded out of his wages, the
laud owner was beaten out of the
right-of-way, the material man was
defrauded, and if any man in con
nection with the road was caught
doing anything honest lie was
promptly fired. As time went on
the rule held good. As receiver
Col. Hogg was as big a thief as he
was when a luuUler. Hogg was
fired and ILadley was substituted
and the court last week was con
strained to admit that .there had
iK-eu much money wasted that
should have gone to the operation
of the road and the payment of the
laborers. There has never been
anything honest about the road
except the honest laWer that has
been defrauded of his pay. If by
chance or through mistake an
honest act has been performed in
the past on the Oregon Pacific the
doer thereof quickly recanted an
atoned for the same by committing
two or more, mostly more, cliS'
honest acts to make up fot it
Conceived in dishonesty, born
thievery, swaddled 111 roguery
nursed on trickery, grown to sta
ture in a likeness of the whole,
is the very persoi ification of all

There is an attenpt being made
to throw the whole odium of the
Oregon Pacific trouble onto the
shoulders of R. E. Mulcahy, the
former superintendent. This at
tempt is made mostly for the reason
that Mulcahy is gone, and is made
by a class of papers and people that
did not have the nerve to say any
thing alunit him while he was here.
While there are no great chunks of
love lying around this office for
this man Mulcahy, we are bound
to assert in the interest of truth
that the blame for all the misdeeds
of the Hadley regime does not lay
at Mulcahy 's door by any manner
of means. That he was expenive
in his department we asserted many
months ngo. Hut the real blame
of this Oregon Pacific muddle in its
present shape lies at the door of no
one but Judge Fullerton. It is no
excuse for him to say that he did
not know what or how the money
was distributed that the bondhold
ers subscribed last spring and the
road earned during the summer and
lali. 11 u.i ilia uu.ujii.j.i
this. It is no excuse for him to say
that the attoruevs salary was too
igh as these salaries must have
een paitl on his order. To plead
ignorance in this instance is not the
ladow of a defense as he should
ave known what was being done
if he did not, and for him to plead
ignorance is to admit that in the
most important civil case in his
istrict he allowed interested attor
neys to take the matter out of his
hands and to manipulate it as they
saw best to further the interests of
icir clients in east.
Hut some of the things Judge
'ullertou cannot plead ignorance
That the receiver was not
oing his duty under the law wai
pointed out to him by this paper as.
long ogo as three months, and the
udge took a partial cognizance of
it at that time, but did not trouble
himself to look fully into the mat
ter. We venture to assert that at
ven this late date the court does
not know what has become of the
earnings of the road for the last
three months. He had ought to
know, and if he was a laborer on
the road and has the power which
he has as Judge, he would know
inside of twenty-four hours or some-
ody would see the inside of Hen-
ton county's jail.
Mulcahy was to blame for his
shortcomings, which seems to have
)ccn many, and Hadley was to
dame for his lavish expenditures
of the earnings of the road outside
of legitimate channels, and Gest
was to blame for his high salary
which he took and never earned,
but Mulcahy, Hadley, Gest and all
the others were subordinates to
Judge Fullerton who had absolute
control of the whole thing and yet
permitted theru to be done.
