The Carey Act.
After considerable dlscnsslon, in
which It wns Bhown that tho land
sharks under tho Carey act had gob
bled the best lands in the country,
und are standing in the way of re
claiming the lands of this section,
the following resolutions were pass
ed: Whereas, The counties of the State
of Oregon, lying east of the Cascade
Mountains produce, according to the
census of 1000, grain crops as fol
lows: Wheat, 7,100,000 bushels; oats,
770,000 bushels; barley, 1,227,000
bushels; rye, 93,000 bushels; corn,
19,000 bushels, and buckwheat, 200
bushels, aggregating 9,239,200 bush
els of grain. j
Whereas, The productive capacity
of Eastern Oregon under irrigation
could bo Increased v tenfold, which
would mean a grain crop approximat
ing 100,000,000 bushels annually, be
sides dairying, horticulture and diver
sified farming on a largo scale, thus
openinf? to settlement vast areas now
not utilized, and adding to the mater
ial prosperity of tho entire state.
Whereas, Exclusive grain farming
has been generally abandoned in
Western Oregon for dairj Ing ami
other branches of agriculture and for
manufacturing, and unless the eastern
section Is opened to the agriculturist
mere is grave uanger innt witnin
few years the state will be forced to
purchase from neighboring states food
products which should be raised upon
its own areas.
Wheoius, It is of the utmost im
portance that tho State ol Oregon
take advantage without delay, of the
irrigation law recently enacted by the
congress of the United States, in
order that It may make ure of a fund
amounting to over $900,000 now avail
able for irrigation work within its

secretary of this association he and
they are hereby instructed to tele

grapher of the United States geologi
cal survey, requesting him to begin
work on reclamation projects under
the present irrigation law nt such
point or points in Eastern Oregon as
in his Judgment offer the best assur
ance of success and benefit.
Itesolved, Further, that the co
operation of the governor and secre
tary and the treasurer of Oregon, con
stitntlng tho state land board, and of

Young King of Spain Desires His
Grandmother, Queen Isabella II, to
Spend Her Declinig Years In Spain
Paris, Oct. 18. According to cur
rent report the young king of Spain
is desirous of having his paternal
grandmother, the former Queen )sa
bella II., return to Madrid and spend
her declining years in the Spanish
capital. It is doubtful if the invita
tion will be accepted, as the former
queen, despite her age she will be
73 tomorrow is known to be extreme
ly fond of Paris and its gayeties.
Should the invitation be accepted
it would be curious indeed to see the
old queen once more surrounded by
many who formed her gay court in
days gone by stately, portly dames
with snow-white hair, who used to be
her fair ladies in waiting, and aged
courtiers, marchionesses and coun
tesses, survivors of the gallant court
of Isabella II., and among them
though far away from the land of her
youth, is Eugenie, ox-empress of the
French, who was then tho lovely lady
in waiting, styled "Countess of Teba.
The sons and daughters, of these aged
courtiers are now occupying high po
sitions under the young king. But
It would not be among these gran
dees and nobles that the venerablo
cx-queen would receive her most af
fectlonato welcome. It is among the
people that her memory is kept green
The present generation of workers in
Spain has heard what a popular
queen, Isabella II. was; how her
court was the gayest of the gay; how
thero was always plenty of work for
everyone; how the queen used to gg.
among them herselt and take an in
terest In all their small doings, and
how she freely gave to tho needy,
heedless of the rulnpd state of her
With money the old lady is still
generous to lavlshness. The story Is
told that the chamberlain, in despair
at her royal disregard of questions
of ways and means, arranged a finan
clal object lesson for her. He drew
5000 francs in 6-franc pieces, fresh
from the mint, and spread the bright,
silver coins upon a table In a room
through which the queen often passed

and when Isabella saw them she said:
'Why marquis, you tell me my coffers

tenance of your majesty's household
The former quefn lives very com
fortably, but with little state in her
fine Paris house In the Avenue Kle-
ber, and since the death of her hus
band, Don Francisco, last April, she
has been seen very little in public.
Her daughters visit her by turns, but
her favorite child is the Infanta
Eulalla, who resemblos her most.
During most of her residence in
France she has spent a number of
weeks out of every summer at her
villa' at St. Andre&se, a romantic spot
on the cliffs, close to Havre. It used
to be her favorite pastime to make
excursions along the coast Incognito,
visiting Trouville, Dieppe, Honfteur
and other, neighboring resorts.

Filipinos Have No Inventive Talent
Primitive Agricultural Methods.
In a recent publication of tho Bu
reau of Insular AffnliH, ot tho wnr
department, tho subject of trado pos
sibilities In tho Philippines Is dis
cussed at length. Tho writer or the
article has evidently spent some thna

to tho character of tho people Tho
Filipinos, sayn he, arc not only an
agricultural, but very Imitative peo
ple, wholly Inching In tho initiative.
They seem to possess no talent for
Invention. Tho grotesquo simplicity
of their processes of cultivating tha

not only planted by hnnd, hut har

Trado conditions may not change

to supposo that tho Filipino charac

culiarities of American products.
This Is a peculiarly British view of
commercial economics, and has cost
England tho trade supremacy It once

danger of our committing the same
or even a, similar mistake.
