INDIAN LAND SALES
DISPOSAL OF PROPERTY
OF INTESTATE INDIANS.
Farms Thus Purchased Must Be Im
proved Six Tracts Were Sold Yes
terday, Aacnt Wltklns Conduct
lra the Sale One Tract Brought
Nearly Fifty Dollars Per Acre.
According to the provisions of con- j
grtss governing the sale and dispo
sal of the Indian lands, bids were
submitted to the Indian agent yester
day at the reservation for the pur-
, chase of six tracts of land which had
i been the holdings of Indians who
i had died Intestate.
The problem of the disposal of the
Indian lands has been one that has
' occupied the attention of the gov
, ernment officials in charge of the
Indian situation for a long time. It
is held that as long as the Indian Is
1 put on an allotment and turned
loose without direction and snowing
er example that he will revert to
the habits of his ancestors and will
i do nothing with the chance that has
;een given him oy the government.
This has been demonstrated time
and time again where the Indian.
iresh from the schools, has come to
, the reservation and has settled In
. the midst of the older natives. For
i a time the attempt to live according
I to the teachings of the schools is
I maintained, but under the indlfler-
ence and sometimes the ridicule of
is:norant of the trlbe the instlnct
of the old race soon reasserts itself
and the cultivation of the land is
neglected, and the holder returns to
the semi-nomaoic life of the Indian
Policy of the Department.
It has been argued that this can
be overcome if there are men on
the lands who will cultivate them as
they should be cultivated, for the
Ir-dlan is a creature of imitation and
will follow in the footsteps of tho
American farmer if he has the sight
of his thrift continually berore his
eyes and the labor where he can
see the advantages that it brings,
Reasoning thus, the department
has decided that the best way to
help the Indian and at the same time
open the reservation as the old pop-
ulation of the native holders dies
I away, is to allow the white men to
i lnv th lnnH that Ik left tenontloca
are made out and sent to the success-
ful bidder. The purchaser is then
expected to Improve the land and
fnlrirntA It nnA 1r Is ttiA fntanftnn
of the fram'ers of the law that there !
should be a man on the land to set j
an example to the Indians surround
ing. in tarlft and industry.
Six Tracts Were Sold.
There were six tracts up for sale ,
yesterday and all of them called
forth good bids. One lot of 1C2 acres
as owned by Anna Howard, an old
Indian woman who had died intestate.
It is a tract of One wheat land situ
ated about one-iialf mile south of
Athena and will raise 50 bushels of
waeai to uie acre. i. u. naney was
the highest bidder on this tract, of-
fering JE.uoo for the title.
There were three t:acu about five
tnils from the city and one and a
4. nan nine irom ine agency, 10 me
! south, belonging to Annie, an old
T ; woman whose Indian name was A-ma-ma
ka-ket. and her two tons. The
v I tracts comprised 240 acres, and for
X them J. S. Henry offered $7,2fW.
r These properties were represented
j by T. G. Hailey.

ket belonging to Is-pe-ll-a, a Wall 1
J ' Walla Indian, and A-llt-ye a. her
; daughter. The older woman owned
j j 160 acres and the younger 38.67
acres The land was bid for by E.
f .Marshal, who offered S22.60 an
a ie for it. This land is seven niies
southeast of Adams. The estates
last mentioned were represented by
: J mice James Fee.
Several other persons bid on the
land In all of these Instances, but
I the highest bids are the onos that
j are mentioned. These bids win now
, be sent to tho department of the in-
' tcrlor at Washington, and If they
think that they are high enough to
( warrant the sale, the dc eds will be
i forwarded to the bidders. .Each bid
has to be accompanied by a certified
cheek for a part of the 'alue of the
land, to show the sincerity of the
( W making the bid.
NEW OREGON PATENT.
Union County Man Invents Brake for
Jesse Spencer, of Ijx Grande, has
invented n brake for a scroa
invented a brake apparatus for a
cream separator, and has applied for
a patent on the same. It consists in
a spring hand, to which is attached
a latch, to hold the two ends to
gether. The band Is placed around the re
volving cylinder of trn.- separator,

Uon the two cmis of the t,and are

form uearj,1R nn around the cylinder,
bringing it to n gradual stop, with
out a Jar to Its mechanism
The steel band will be lined with
rubber or nsbestos. to prevent seri
ous wear on the cylinder. The in
vention comes as a boon to the users
of the cream separator, as the ball
bearing of the machine causes it to
run for about 1" minutes after the
power is shut off.
The device is simple and inexjien
sive. and the Inventor expects to
place one on every .separator
