STATE LAND BOARD IS

The Supreme Court Says the Decis

The Oregon supreme court render
ed two Important opinions Tuesday.
Dr. C. H. Itobertson, of Salem, loses
his mnndamus suit against the stnto
land board, the appellate court hold
ing that the land board is a co-ordinate
department of the state govern
ment, and Its decisions are not re
viewable in the courtc. The only real
mipstlon involved In the Itobertson
case was the right of the state land
board to make a ruling granting an
extension of 30 days' time In which
purchasers of property who had he
come delinquent In their payments,
might make the deferred payments,
and avoid the cancellation of their
certlnflcates of sale The court holds
that the board Ib authorized by law
to make such rules as are deemed
necessary for the transaction of its
business. This decision is of great
interest locally, as there are a num
ber of other mnndamus cases pending
against the board, In which the Iden
tical question Is Involved.
Exclusive Right to Fish.
The second case decided was that
of It. D. Hume against 20 citizens of
Curry county, in which Hume sought
to restrain defendants from fishing
below his nshery in Rogue Itlver.
Hume has owned a fishery five miles
abovo the mouth of Boguo nlver since
1877, and has used It continuously
since that time. The defendants, for
a number of years, have attempted
to establish fishing headquarters on
the river below his plant, and ho sued
for exclusive right to use both banks
of the river, and obtained a verdict in
the Curry county courts, sustaining
his contention. The case was appeal
ed and the supreme court sustained
the lower court. Hume now has ex

He would stop In Omaha to visit a , tho Carey Irrigation law wires as
few days with a sister. It is presumd follows of the operation of the law
in that state:
"In cases where those appropriat

ed under the Carey act have been
supplied with sufficient means, ener
gy and ability, the working of that
law has been successful in this state.
"I do not think that it would be
wise, In view of tho now irrigation
law passed recently by congress, to
repeal the Carey law, as both can
be used In tho same stato without
conflict. One can be applied to such
sections of the country where there is
an abundance of water In tho
streams, whereas the lands intended
to be watered under the irrigation act
are such as will require the construc
tion of reservoirs or dams, in order
that the surplus and waste waters of
our streams may be used In their rec

INDIANS VS. HIGH SCHOOL.
Kick the Pigskin on the Local
Next Saturday the Pendleton high
school will play football with the
Indians from tho reserve. The local
high school team has been contem
plating playing the Indians, and a
few days ago a challenge was sent
them. This was accepted and Sat
urday afternoon was set for the game.
This will be a game worth seeing.
The Indians are many pounds heavier
than tho local boys and they are all
said to be old football players, Moto
nlc, tho famous Indian athleto, will
play with tho team and several others
almost as largo and athletic as he
will bo lined up agnlnst the little
high school team. However, Coach
Bryson is confident of winning the
day oven against strength. Tho Indi
ans play good football, but they lack
in efficiency and spued. Here Is
where the school team expects to out
class them far enough to win. Tho
Indians are said to bo practicing for
the fray and when this game is pull
ed off it will attract a large crowd.
