Jett, of Baker county, says tho Democrat, has arranged with the assessors of Union and Umatilla counties to meet with him in Balcer City, Thursday of this week for the purpose of discussing matters dealing with the assessment of property In those counties. Assessor Brown, of Union, and Bu zan, of Umatilla, have been heard from and will be hero the day ap pointed. For some time past a move ment has been talked of to interest the assessors over the state to meet In convention and discuss such ques tions as might be of benefit to them. Thus far the proposition has met with no response, and tho representatives of Baker, Union and Umatilla decid ed to come together for mutual ben efit. When seen Monday Mr. Jett stated the object of this meeting was mainly for the purpose of endeavoring to ar range a more equitable taxation in the three counties. This would not mean the same on all property, but on things In common. The year's work of 1902 will begin the first of the coming month, and it is desired htat the conference be held before that time. Believes they are Favoring White Men at the Expense of Indians. Tho news comes from Washington tht the demand for a sweeping inves tigation of Indian agency matters is even stronger now than a week ago. when Senator Turner offered his re solution for this purpose, and if the senate committee declines to act the house is almost sure to . Senator Clark, of Montana, who is on the Indian affairs committee, and who is thoroughly familiar with the conditions in the west, Is convinced that there is a great deal of room for improvement in the matter of making leases on Indian lands for grazing or mining purposes. He also expresses himself in favor of the thorough in vestigation of each reservation and the character of the leases now ex isting. Indian agents often sacrifice the in terests of the Indians to their desire to secure valuable leasing privileges fnr white stock owners who have the inside track in the matter of Inmn grazing lands. Outsideers' cat"(0 are allowed to mingle with the teiong. x 11. T.1lnna n rt f 1 . ing io uiu iiiuii jn tno rounuup many Indian cattlo are uranHeu -with the leases and are thus a complete loss to tho t.vjoe -which has leased the lancfs. It Is also tho custom to make a lease with a cattle or sheepman which may give him, for instance,- the right to put 5000 cattle at so much per capita upon a piece of Indian land, and then with the connivance of the agent he grazes 10,000 or 15, 000 head unknown to the department and paying nothing to the Indians for the privilege.

Residents of tho Qrando Rondo val- A Mining Engineer Recommends Vit rified Brick. H. B. Williams, one of the leading mining engineers of Eastern Oregon, who Is connected with tho Virtue mine, iri an interview with the Baker City Democrat man, stated that the solution of the paving of Baker City streets, rests in the hands of the peo ple here, who have at their very door the cheapest and most durable ma terial. "I, know of streets paved in Eastern cities with vitrified brick which have been paved for 20 years and are still in good condition. There are clays in Baker county which will make a first class vitrified brick. The city could easily and cheaply make its own pav ing blocks from this material and could supply the same to Portland, Seattle, Tacoma and Spokane and make money on the proposition, be sides putting its own streets in first class condition. The right kind of material to begin with makes a vit rified brick that is as durable as gran ite blocks, and forms a better surface and a surer footing for horses than any other known pavement." ! iinitsi The same advvice is good for Pen dleton, there being material at hand for the manufacture of vitrified brick with which the two main streets of Pendleton should be paved.
