will be blamed for tbe defeat of tbe
bill. The matter will be referred to

But they will do it Depend upon
that. These men in the Oregon

A question which has been in con
troversy for many yearo has at last
beeu won by a settler who has had
the nerve to stay with his place. At
the time the Northern Pacific rail
road was built through the North
west there were many settlers farm
ing little places within the limits of
the grant. Somo of them had been
there for year waiting the time that
the land should be survoyed and the
government should allow them to file
their homestead upon it When the
railroad lino was located the com
pany filed a map of general location,
claiming all that adjacent to their
Tho government compelled them
to file a map of definite location cov
ering each tract claimed by them.
This they did, but in doing so many
of these little farms, of course were
covered. Some of the settlers were
scared and purchased the land from
tbe railroad, others preferred to
abandon it altogether, while still
others stayed by what they believed
were their rights and made applica
tion for patents, and claimed this
right by virtue of prior settlement.
They were on the land before the
lailroad filed its map of definite lo
cation with the government. This,
of course, caused a legal fight and
for many years test cases on this
questiou have been dragging their
way through the department and
the courts, to be finally settled in
the United States supreme court
last week in favor of tbe farmer.
This decision will lift the load from
the shoulders o f many a settler and
enable him to obtain title to bis
land, so that be can either sell it,
borrow money on it to improve it or

One of tire most satisfactory so
lutions to tho dust problem comes
from Germany, whore a number of
chemists have been making exton-
sivo experiments with the germs
collected from tbe dust of Berlin
and Vieanna. By sprinkling chem
icals of a powerful nature in the
streets onee a week, or once every
fortnight, all disease germs are de
stroyed. These chemicals disinfect

rnoro properly be called, insecti
cides, aro prepared for ordinary dis
ease germs that are found in the
dusts of streets, but there are other
mixtures suited to specially virulent
disease germs that may occasionally
find their way into particular streets
or cities. In this way it is sup
posed that there wonld be little
danger of the diseases spreading
further by means of the dust. There
is every reason to believe that in
many of our disease epidemics the
dust-laden wind has beeu an effec
tive agent in carrying them from

F a Patient
After a patient hearing of evi
dence in the contention between
the coal miners and operators, cov
ering a period of fifty days, tbe
Coal Commission has completed
this stago of the exacting duty to
whioh it was appointed, and will
now listen for an indefinite time to
the summing up and pleadings of
the attorneys in the case. The pub.
lie followed the ovidence for a time
closely and with interest, but tbe
recital became little more than stale
repetition, and interest (not in the
case, but in th e testimony) waned,
until latterly it has been practically
lost sight, of by the masses. Now,
however, that the testimony is all iD,
a renewal of public interest may be
expected. The people from the
first gave sympathetic ear to the
grievance of the striking miners.
That tbe protest of these men
against many of the exactions and
rules of their employers waaNvell
founded was apparent to many men
who did not necessarily approve of
the methods taken ' to correct the
abuses of which complaint was
made. The stubborn stand taken
by the operators in refusing to com
promise the differences of which the
strike was tbe result increased pop
ular sympathy for the strikers, and
the efforts of the latter, through
their leaders,to suppress lawlessness
and prevent an idle host from
breaking out into violence tended
further in the same direction. Tbe
case was, indeed, practically pre
judged by the r miners up to the
time that the commission began its
sittings. The conflicting testimony
submitted has tended to confuse
rather than to clear the case, but
through it all a discerning public
has not lost sight of the fact that a
real grievance underlies tho strik
It has been shown, however, by
tho testimony of many veracious
witnesses that the miners generally
have reached the point where their
attitude toward life, xis it presents
itself to them in their vocation, is
no of bitter discontent. In this
jood their demands upon the op
erators, whose attitude is in turn
arrogant, are not made in a spirit of
reasonableness. From their stand
point, no doubt, these demands are
just, but if all that is asked were
allowed, they would still be unhap
py in tho vocation from which they
cannot escape because unfitted for
any other. If by somo process of
social alchemy—simple or myster
ious— discontent that is grounded
in the necessity of labor could be
transformed into a willingness to
labor, asking only humane treat
ment ad a wage scale commensurate
with the laborer’s earnings; and
avarice that seeks inordinate profits
upon investments could be trans
formed into a disposition to be sat
isfied with reasonable returns, the
troubles, not only in the coal nines,
but iu the industrial world general
ly, would soon reach amicable ad
justment, and that without stren
uous effort to reconcile otherwise
this is not possible, wo can hardly
expect that the Coal Commission,
with all of its painstaking effort,
will leave the matters at issue be
tween miners and operators any
better than it found them, except as
it may be considered a gain to stifle
discontent, on tbe one hand, for a
time, and temporarily put a check
upon arrogance upon tbe other.
The strike, interrupted by the
appointment of this commission, is
practically ended, but the findings
of the commission can hardly be ex
pected to prevent a recurrence of
strikes iu the coal regions, since it
will be unoble to eliminate from tbe
situation the elements of discontent
and avarice upon which they feed.
