on Grande Ronde River.

iecommendation of Representative
Moody, Land Commissioner KIchards
has directed the land office at La
Grande to withdraw from entry two
tracts of about 400 acres on the trib
utarles of Grande Ronde and Wallowa
rivers in Wallowa and Union counties
for the use of the state. State Fish
Warden Van Dusen solicited Mr,
Moody's aid in getting this withdraw
al, indicating that the state decided
to establish a fish and salmon hatch
ery in that vicinity, but, having no
valid lieu base land at this time, was
unable to make the selection in its
own name. The land withdrawn is in
T. 2 N.. R. 41, and T, 5 N T. 44 E.
At the request of Representative
Moody the land commissioner hag ex
tended for 30 days the time in which
the state of Oregon shall show cause
why list 11, which was filed under the
Carey act by the Oregon Development
company for lands on the Upped Des
chutes river, should not be rejected.
Owing to bad weather and hindrances
to travel, it has been impossible to se
cure the necessary affidavits in the
first 30 days allowed.
