In pursuanoe of an order made by the
local orders, the representatives from
the various Bub-lodges reaohed Heppner
at an early hour Saturday, April 30th.
Many of tbem came in the night before
in order that they might have more time
to do "log-rollin(" and "wire-pulling."
On the arrival of a special train char
tered to bring the members from lone,
Ella, Tub Springs aad Lexington, the
Eight Mile division marahed to the
grand central depot, headed by the
Heppner brass band. The spectaole was
grand, solemn and impressive. The way
was lined with auditors and the streets
with ash barrels and tomato cans.
The band played "Little Annie Kooney"
with good effect. The music is new and
was very appropriate.
At the depot the club received the In
vinoibles, of lone j the Get-There-Eli's,
of Tub Springs; Bright Hopes, ot Ella,
and the Melanoholy CJlub, of Lexington.
The new accessions fell in line, and
while the band played "There Comes a
Train Around the Bend," the overland
express steamed into the depot bearing
the True Blues, of Hardman, and a rous
ing delegation from Lone Book.
The line of march was taken up and
the royal brigade marched to the opera
house, where the house was orowded to
its utmost capacity with ladies and gen
tlemen interested in the cause.
The meeting was called to order by
Vice-President Repass, who placed in
nomination the Hon, Fat Quaid, of Tub
Springs, for temporary ohairman. Mr.
Quaid took the chair amid storms of ap
plause. In a few appropriate remarks
he thanked the convention for the honor
conferred and congratulated those pres
ent on being out of jail again.
Herman Meissner was named for tem
porary secretary, and after the various
committees were appointed the conven
tion adjourned until 2 p. m.
The convention reassembled at 2 p. ni.
and beard the report on credentials,
which was adopted with a few minor cor
rections. The committee on permanent
organization and order of business then
made a report.
The temporary officers were made
The order of business was arranged,
First, platform; seoond, nominations;
third, choose your partners for a waltz.
The ohairman rapped for better order,
which would permit Secretary Meissner
to read the platform.
It was well received by the majority,
bat this convention, like all others, bad
a minority, and Jim Inskeep asked the
privilege of addressing the chair, which
was granted. He made a motion to have a
clause inserted requiring all standard
baking powder companies to furnish a
recipe by which one could bake bread on
the bottom without burning it on top.
Thereupon T. W. Owens, of Ella, rose,
claiming the demand was both incon
sistent and out of order. The chairman
rose in uuger and threatened Brother
Owens with immediate expulsion if be
dared to chirp ugain. When his temper
had slowed down to about 28 miles an
hour, he assured the assembly that con
sistency had nothing more to do with
politics than it had with religion, that
the motion was in order and that he
would permit no further discussion, but
would insist npon a full affirmative vote.
He also said that those coyote chasers
from the Ella country would eat any
thing and be glad to get it, but tbat the
best of bread was none too good for him.
The oommittee on order of business
recommended that nominations be made
in the following order: Representative,
county judge, olerk, sheriff, commis
sioner, full term, commissioner for va-
oancy, school superintendent, treasurer,
county surveyor, assessor, coroner and
delegates to the state convention.
The oommittee on resolutions pre
sented the following: "
Resolved, That we use all honorable
means to defeat political organizations
not in unison with our own. That any
action on the part of the Heppner ring

Porter, 447; J. W. Allstott, 438; Jim Ins
keep, 429; Al Biuns, 934 and Bud Shobe,

and made a straight drive for Jim Ins
keep; this oame near breeding a riot, The
Chair's attention was called to the large
vote Mr, Binns had polled, but he would
iiot reoognize it. It was simply an old
trick of the Heppner ring. It was tak
ing adyantnge of public enthusiasm and
the Australian ballot system to "queer"
The contest was a hot one for this office.
f he present income from the office is
about four thousand dollars, and for the
same amount of work a man gets about
nine hundred dollars in a private oapaoi'
tv. i The informal ballot resulted in the
following manner: Albert Lovgreen
469; Thos. W. Morgan, 468J4; Ohas. Fil
kins, 432; Tom Boothby, 580; Eli Keeny,
600; Chris. Borohers, 465; Chas. Lewis,
27; Perry Ham, of Lone Rook, 832.
Another row was imminent. Herman
Weissner begged permission to speak, and
asked the chair to oonsider the question in
all its forms . He said some might object
to Mr. Ham on aacouut of his not being a
resident of Morrow Co., but that he had
interviewed Mr. Hum and learned that
he would cheerfully move into the county
if elected to the office of clerk.
Mr. Lewis a Mr. Ohas. Lewis, of
Heppner, said he had interviewed Mr.
Keeney, and found that he would give up

owing to the "strong pull" he has with
On motion the chair appointed, or
rather endorsed John Handy and B. F
King, long and short term commissioners.
Some dissenting voioes were heard,
wbioh were quieted by showing that
some more formidable argument must
be adduced than that they were married
There were no nominations for the
offioe of school superintendent, and the
chairman rose and Baid : "Gentlemen, I
am opposed to running against women,
who are in many ways fur more compe
tent than are we; still, I will accept the
nomination and should I be elected, will
strive to guard and fulfill the most im
portant ollice in the gift of the people."
The chair named T. W. Owens for
county surveyor, and Human Caldwell
for assessor. He also mentioned

Register and Reoeiver, La Grande, Or.,
Gentlemen: I am in receipt of your let
ter of Maroh 11, 1892, transmitting ths ap
peal of Nathan W. Applington, from your
decision rejecting his application to file
for the e4 ne4' , ne'4 se sec. 4 and sw.y
nw.y sec. 3 tp. 2 n. r. 40 e. The ground
on which you based your said aotion, you
state as follows:
"Applicant olaims settlement February
10, 1S!)0, and did not therefore, file on the
tract within ninety days allowed for that
Also because the pre-emption law was
repealed by the Bet of Maroh 3d 1891,
and the applicant did not offer his filing
within ninety days from the passage of
the aot of March 2d 1891.
Thirty days are allowed within which
to appeal from the action of this offioe to
the Honorable Commissioner of the Gen
eral Land Office."
Yon also in your letter transmitting
the said appeal:
"If the appellant la right and is enti
tled to enter this land as a pre-emptor,
we desire to know so, so that we may
know how to pass upon all applications
of the same kind in the future.
There is no question but what Mr. Ap
plington has made valuable improve
ments on the tract above described and
we trust that be is qualified to enter the
tract under the pre-emption aot."
The appellant asserts that he "made
settlement upon the above desoribed traot
on the lliih of February 1890 and
that it was my bona fide intention to
claim the same under the pre-emption
law as it existed at the time of settle
ment." He also oites section 4, act of March 3,
1891, (which see in inolosed circular!
whioh after reciting the faot repealing
the pre-emption law, adds this proviso :
"But all bona fide claims lawfully ini
tiated, before the passage of this act, and
under any of said provisions of law so
repealed, may be perfected upon due
compliance with law, in the same manner,
and upon the same terms and conditions
and subject to the same limitation, for
feitures and contests as if this act had
not been passed."
By virtue of the said provision, Mr.
Applington clearly bas the tight to file
for the land upon whioh be made settle
ment in February 1890, this office, hold
ing that an act of settlement, whether
upon surveyed or unsurveyed lands,
oomes within the intention and meaning
of the aot relative to a "bona fide claim
initiated before the passage of this aot'
Apropos to this same matter, I would
add incidentally that the looal officers at
Olympia, Washington, have just raised
the question as to the legality ot similar
filing on unsurveyed land, and on April
11, the following telegram was sent thom:
"Legally qualified pre-emptor who set
tled upon unsurveyed land prior to re
peal of pre-emption law is entitled to file
therefor after expiration of ninety days
from filing of township plat iu absence
of adverse olaim.''
In view'tif-the foregoing, I have to di-
reot that Mr. Applingtcn's filing be duly
received and placed on record, and that
in all similar cases you will apply the
I return herewith for the purpose
stated Mr. Applingtou's declaratory state
ment by you transmitted with the appeal.

California Authorities Arrived bast Night

J. H. Single, of Marysville, Cal., dep
uty sheriff of Yuba oounty, aocompanied
by J. M. Connor, a Southern Pacific con
ductor, arrived last night to identify the
prisoner here and take him to California,
should he prove to be the person wanted.
Early this morning they visited the
jail and found Cureton all ready for the
trip down. Mr. Connor, who was the '
conduotor on the train at the time
Brakeman H. B. Carly was shot, gave it
as his opinion that Cnretou was the
right man. Cureton showed no ag
itation and was as oool as a cucumber
other than a little serious. When the
officers entered he was reading a letter,
