Oregon and California Und Grant Title Is Not Clear Washintgon. D. C As the Oregon A California land grant bill stands on the bouse calendar, it will not enable the government of the United States to pass a clear title to any settler or purchaser, In the opinion of Repre sentative Hawley. and be has the sup porting opinion f several of tha good lawyers of the public lands committee In this opinion. , . . "Toe MIL" said Mr. Hawley, "makes provision for the payment of back taxes that is. for Usee that have accrued for the past three years, but I believe It does not provide for tha payment of taxes which aire now becoming collectable. Moreover, the bill fails to make provision for the payment of interest on back taxes and fails also to provide for the payment of penalties on those secrued taxes. These omissions, in my opinion, render It ironossible for the United States to give an absolutely clear title and I will call attention to this shortcoming when the bill ia before the bouse. "The prime reason for providing in ' . . -. . . the bill for the payment of back taxes wss to enable the government to give clear title. Unless that section is enlarged and made complete ' it will fail of its purpose sod those who ac quire these lands from the government will be liable for interest and lor toe unpaid penalties and for the taxes that are not paid by the government under the Ferris bill." Smudging Need Shown in Southern Oregon Fruit District Medford In the opinion of local fruit men the year 1916 will mark the final demonstration of the necessity of crude oil smudging in the growing of fine fruit and spples in Southern Ore- con. At the beginning or the season were wss a distinct movement against smudging, chiefly because of tha an noyance involved and damage to trees from overflowing pots. In fact an In junction against smudging was ob tained by one group of orchards shortly before the May freeze. All this anti-smudge agitation is ended now in the opinion of local grow ers, for from May 8 to May 14 emudg Ingin Rogue River valley orchards wsa worth at least $500,000. Those orchardists who smudged, and fortunately a large proportion of them did, lost practically nothing from the low temperature, while except on the high hillsides those who did not smudge were wiped out While the loss haa been serious. It Is certain ac cording to experts who examined the orchards that the first reports were greatly exaggerated. 100,000 Acres in Willamette Valley Can Be Watered SalamAnnmitlmatelv 100.000 acre of land can be feasibly irriagted in the Wilalmette vlaley at the present time, results oi an investigation juei iw plated by the United States Reclama tion Service in co-operation with the state engineer's office show.
