CAPT. LEWIS TELEGRAPHS.
And Kinds that He Is Not To Take
tries on Patented Lands.
By the wording of the late communi
cation to land officers by Secretary Hoke
Smith, Capt. Lewis believed, in com
mon with all other citizens of The Dalles,
including too the lawyers, that the pat
ented lands acquired under the Dalles
Military Road Co., included in the N.
P. grant, were subject to entry by home
steaders, but seeing an ambiguity in the
wording of the instructions he tele-
phed a point-blank question to the
interior department and today received
the following in reply :
Washington, D. C, June 5th.
To the Register and Receiver, The Dalles, Or. ;
Allow no entries for patented lands.
Steps will be taken at once to recover
lands erroneously patented to Dalles
Military Road Co., within conflicting
limits of the Northern Pacific grant.
This prompt settlement of the ques
tion in the mind of Capt. Lewis will prob
ably save a good "deal of money in law
yers' and other fees attendant upon a
land entry to a class of people who toil
hard for their money and accumulate
their dollars slowly and with infinite

The Same Story.
A local dealer, speaking to an East
Oregonian reporter says: "All over the
country there is a depression in wool.
According to my idea there is a con
certed action among larger manufactur
ers, speculators and commission - mer
chants to crowd prices down to the low
est possible point to place them on a
free basis. I mean that by taking ad
vantage of the financial depression they
have combined to affect prices so that
they can buy domestic wools as cheaply
or cheaper than they could foreign wools
duty free, so that if they are compelled
hereafter to compete with free wools
they will suffer 'no loss, which must be
borne by the growers. In my opinion
the situation would be much better if
we would have free wool now, after af
fairs had become settled, as prices have
actually been pushed down lower
through the unnatural cause I have
mentioned than they would be if wool
were on a free basis.
"According to the prices that are
talked off East at present for cleaning
wool, our wools cannot bring more than
from six to ten cents. There are at
present no offers and no sales."
For best quality 10 oz., heavy rivetted
overalls at 50 cents per pair go to N.
It is a well -deserved victory for them.
The way they throw their entire stock
before the public, they cannot help but
sell lots of goods, as we saw with our
own eyes goods going out at 50 per cent.
less than they can be bought elsewhere.
We have learned that there is no less
than 20 cases on the way of assorted
