on the success of the farmer and stock

have been hard hit during 1921; their
labor has been profitless to a very large
extent and the heavy slump in prices for
sheep, wool, cattle and wheat has ai
fected every class. . We are optimistic,
however, and look forward to the new
year with brighter hopes. There has

OBSERVATIONS AND IMPRESSIONS
' OF -THE JOURNAL -MAN
By Fred Lockley
Judge William Marion Ramsey lives
at McMinnvllle. He has lived in Oregon
more than three score years and ten.
He has served as mayor of the Capita.
City and on the supreme bench of Ore
gon. Recently we spent an hour or so
la his law office in the county seat of
Yamhill county, talking of old times.
Ton are always looking uo unusual
and out-of-the-way things," said Judge
Ramsey. "Why don't you go to ,the
courthouse here and look up the - old
records T Tou will find some mighty In
teresting documents. When Lafayette
was the county seat of Yamhill county
there waa filed in the courthouse there
the inventory of the estate of Miles
Carey. I had occasion to look it up about
SO years ago and J noticed among his as
sets, which consisted of horses, cattle,
farm machinery and other such equip
ment, the item, 'one negro slave named
Bob.' I dont know whether bis heirs re
alised anything from thia particular aaset
or not. Of course you are familiar with
the stringent regulations that were pa awed
against the residing in Oregon of frJ
negroes, and the . equally drastic laws
forbidding the introduction -of slavery
into Oregon : and. by the way, we still
have on oury statute 'books the laws
against colored - persons or ' mulattoes
owning property or residing tn the state.

as soon as J could after I was bora. In

day a Quaker named William
Hobson came to my law office to have
me make out a deed for him. He had
bought the J. Walker donation land
claim. He had his hair cut sonar
like they cut the mane of a Shetland
pony. He wore black clothes. He had
arranged to put a mortgage on' the place
ior tne entire amount of the purchase
price. He told me he was going back
East to get more of his fellow-worship
ers to come to Oregon. When I saw that
he was getting a loan for the amount of
the purchase price of his farm. I thought.

you get back East you will stay there.'
