. James A. Edar and wife ar
rived, Tuesday, for a cou
ple of weeks' visit in this
city. Mr. Edar is a brother ot
Mrs. M. Jacobs, and this is their
first meeting for forty years.
Mr. Edar owns 2 5, coo acres of
land in Colombia, Central Amer
ica. He has been in that coun
try for thirty-five or forty years.
His plantation produces coffee,
sugar and tobacco. " At present
he is not raising a great deal of
tobacco, being more actively en
gaged in the production of sugar
and coffee. He has all of the
atest and best machinery on his
plantation for taking care of his
The plantation is situated
across a range of mountains from
the Pacific Ocean, about seventy
five miles distant. He is greatly
interested in having the Nicarag
uan canal put through, as it
would greatly enhance his trans
portation facilities. At present
the greatest menance to his well
fare is the i tate of rebellion that
is almost always in existence in
Colombia. Of . personal safety
he and his family are assured, as
the natives all respect the treat
ies of foriegn countries. How
ever, he is obliged to work
natives on his plantation and he
may be deprived of them at al
most any time during the prog
ress of a rebellion, as they may
be obliged to submit to lorce and
cast their lot with one side or
the other in the struggle for the
reins of governmentin Colombia.
Mr. Edar employs 1,000 natives
on his plantation.
An interesting feature of that
country is the seasons. Tnere
are two crop seasons in the year
down there. October, Novem
ber a.n$ December are winter
months and 'January, February
and March are summer. The
following three months are
winter and the next three are
summer. Consequently, two
crops of coffee and sugar are
produced during each twelve
The majority- of the better
class of people send their children

Spanish is the main language
spoken, much of the correspon

French and German.
About fifteen years ago Mr.
Edar purchased a residence is
New York City with aview t
educating his caildrenf There
his . wife and children have
spent 'the greater part of this
time. ' Mr. Edar has resided in
New York with his family as
much of the time as he could be
away lrom his plantation. At
the termination of their jVislt in
this city Mr. and Mrs. Edar will
go to San Francisco, where they
will remain dnring the remain
der of the winter.
Truth and Fiction.
There is money in the chicken
busk ess, provided, no reverses
attend the venture!., . Lee Hen
kle takes great interest in chick
ens and has a very fine flock of
Brown Leghorns at his home in
this city. Within access of the
flock is the feed box, which was
kept well -covered. The rats re
cently' concluded that they would
tap the food supply and gnawed
a hole in the side of the box.
Mr. Henkle was just as cute as
the rats and lost no lime in set
ting a steel-trap inside the box,
just where a rat would fall into
it when entering through the
hole in the side of the box.
Bright and early the following
morning he went out to see it he
had - caught a rat. He was
slightly "jarred" to find one of
his thoroughbred Brown- Leg
horn hens hanging with her
head through the hole in the
feed box, caught in the trap. He
wisely concluded - that such a
thing wnuld not occur again
and the following night set the
trap. He told his son Arthur,
to get up early the next morning
and look at the .trap. The
following morn Art found
another, prime Brown, Leghorn
hen in the trap. When the news
was broken to Mr. Henkle the
second "jar" came near being
fatal to him. It is presumed
that a small piece of board has
been nailed over the rat hole.
Laud Contest.
Many years ago James Bruce
bought some land of a party and
received a quitclaim deed to the
same. Until a year ago last.
August Mr. Bruce had undisput
ed possession of this land. At
this time J. J. Leabo looked up
the records and found that he
had a right to locate on a parcel
of land in the.W W of E of S
E of Sec .43 'r 3. R 5 W.
For a period everything went
along all right. Not long ago
Mr. Bruce decided to contest Mr.
Leabo's right to on the
grounds that the latter had been
absent from his - claim for a
period exceeding six months?
the time allowed bv law.
Chas, B. Moores, register, of
of the land office at Oregon City,
appointed V.E. .Waiters,' clerk
of this county,' referee " to take
testimony in the contest over the
land which was Mr.
Bruce. Clerk Watters took the
testimony Tuesday afternoon
and all the facts found in evi
dence were ; forwarded to the
land office authorities' at Oregon
City, who will decide the matter.
