ATTEMPT TO SECURE TITLE.
Section of Land Between Malheur and
Nevada Line Being Entered by
Scheming Land Grabbers.
Baker City. Nov. 18. Samuel
White, district attorney for Baker,
Union and Wallowa counties, gives
out the statement today that he would
be present at Huntington the Irst
week In December and personally In
vestigate the alleged attempt to ob
tain all state school lands between
Rye vallley. In Baker county, and tlie
Nevada state lino. It Is reported an
effort Is being made to take land, to
tally valueless, and later declare it
valuable for its minerals, and thus se
cure scrip from the government, says
Wholesale Entry of Land.
For some weeks past a notice !.i,3
been running In a Huntington paper
from the united States land office at
Burns, setting forth that testimony
will he taken at Huntington, Decem
ber 1, before John A. Lehman, a no-
tary public, to establish the charac-
ter of a large number of tracts of
land, therein described, and that a
final hearing will be had at the Bums
land office December 15 This I n
volves In the neighborhood of 100,'
000 acres of land belonging to the
schools of Oregon, and situated In Ba
ker and Malheur counties The notice
Is signed William Fare, as register.
and Charles Newell, receiver.
The Possibility of Fraud.
This land may be withdrawn from
settlement upon witnesses swearing
the vast tracts are more valuable for
their mineral properties than for
either agricultural or timber. It
could be then procured from the stare
for $1.25 per acre, scrip being obtain
ed and the same negotiated for other
school lands, and the tract sold foi
$5 and fi an acre. By taking up
valuable timber land with scrip It can
he readily seen some one stands in a
fair way to mako a small fortune.
Notices in Obscure Paper.
It is charged fraud is Intended by
those Instrumental in having the no
tice posted. The law specifies that
land notices shall be published In a
newspaper published nearest the laud
sought. The land Involved In this
case is In closer proximity to Ontario
and Vnle than Huntington, but it is
alleged the ones behind the move
found 'the Huntington weekly more
obscure. It must bo proven by the
testimony that the land has been
prospected and found to contain min
eral properties which would prove
Will Head Off the Attempt.
This Instance Is the second trial
made upon the same tracts. About a
year ago It was tried, but it transpir
ed a large amount of land Included
had previously been patented by
ranchers In the locality, and such a
clamor was raised by Rye Val'oy
farmers that no witnesses put in an
appearance when the date arrived
for taking the testimony. Thus the
scheme was a failure. Whether or
not the state land board has a repre
sentative at Huntington December 1.
to be present when the testimony is
being taken, Baker county will be
there In the person of Its prosecuting
attorney, and some startling events

Unusual Amount of Rain Retarding
It seldom rains too much in Uma
tilla county to suit the conservative
farmer, but many are now wishing
for a cessation ot the downpour until
they can get their fall wheat sown.
For nearly two weeks it has rained al
most continuously and the ground is
in a very soft condition. In fact more
rain has fallen up to date than before
for several years at this time of year.
Farmers were glad to see It at first,
but now it is too wet for seeding an 1
they are anxious for it to stop a few
It Is estimated that not more than
one-half of the summer fallow has
been seeded to date and unless the
rain stops soon It Is likely to freeze
un and cut the number of acres of fall
sown grain short. It is now coinlog
the time of year for winter and a
freeze Is expected at any date.

Several Men and Teams Scraping up
and Hauling Off Mud.
Stieet Commissioner Fee has again
resumed operations on the streets

has been so obnoxious of late. Two
teams with' scrapers are at work nnd
several men with shovels are scraping
the mud and slush from the gravel
bed. This was commenced several
days ago, but owing to a continuance
of rain, work had to be abandoueJ
as the mud was too soft to handle.
Although It rained a little last night
a heavy chlnook wind camo up in the
after part of the night and hardened
the mud so that it can now be handl
ed. Wagons will bo used to haul It
off when It Is scraped Into piles.
