Things People Should Not be Led to Slaughter Feels In Duty Bound to Expose Graft Wherever Found. We understand the honorable J N, Williamson, congressman-elect from Oregon's second district, came to Canyon City on Monday last for the purpose of personally Interviewing the , people regarding the proposed Dlue mountain forest reserve. We recognize that the permanent creation of the proposed forest rc sorve is a -very serious question tor the people of Grant counts; we real lze that different conditions prevail here than do In any other county In dur state, and we know that the de partment of our government which hns theso matters within Its jurisdic tion knows of these conditions, and have expressed a willingness to give to our people a fair consideration and have explicitly stated how we could get a hearing upon any protest properly filed with the department. The News has always opposed the creation of tho proposed forest re serve upon the lines Indicated In the temporary order withdrawing these lands from settlement and will still continue to oppose It, but while op posing It we will not stand by and see the people of our town and of Grant county hoodwinked and led as sheep to the slaughter by either a congressman or any of our local peo pie without registering a protest. There are other grafts than those which have been mentioned as school land grafts, and it may be our duty to expose them in the near future for the benefit and protection of the citizens of our own county. If duty calls to us we will respond. Grant County News. Alaska a Good Buy. Alaska, like the Louisiana region of the 'Oregon country, was not con sidered by some American congress men to be worth "a pinch of snuff.

The arrival 'of the first direct over land mails by stage at St. Louis from San Francisco, In 1858, was regarded by President Buchanan as a glorious "triumph for civilization and the Union."
