A Land Decision Modified.
"Washington, May 14. Secre
tary Vilas has modified the decis
ion of the commissioners of the
general land officers in rejecting
the section of the Northern Pacific
railroad company for lots 15, -t and
five and one half of a section ot
land in section 7 township 9 north,
range 4 west, Vancouver, V. 1.,
and allowing Andy P. Anderson
to purchase this land under the
act of January 31, 1885. This
land is within the limit of the grant
to the Oregon Central railroad com
pany, by act of May 4, 1870, and
within the limits of the grant made
to the Northern Pactfic railroad
company by the joint resolution of
May 31," 1870.
The Northern Pacific company
appeals from the decision of the
commissioner, argmg that the grant
to the Oregon Central had not
embraced lands outside the state
o! Oregon, and that this tract be
ing in Washington territory was
not included in that grant. The
question had been previously con
sidered, and it was held that the
grant to the Oregon Central did
extend into Washington territory.
The secretary holds that the North
ern Pacific had no legal claim to
this land, as at the date of the
grant to the Northern Pacific Co.,
and of its definite location, the land
was embraced in the grant to the
Oregon Central road, and therefore
excepted from the grant to that
company. By act of January 31,
1S85, granted lands along the un
completed portions of the Oregon
Central road were declared for
feited to the United States and re
stored to the public domain. Andy
R. Anderson applied at the local
land office, but as the record does
not satisfactorily disclose the na
ture of claimant's alleged settle
ment, the secretary has directed
that he be given sixty days in
which to furnish evidence as will
show his compliance with the law,
and that the purchase be held in
abeyance until such evidence is

The Work of Science.
Il is probable that in a few j'ears
mankind will have no past. Myth
after myth, legend after legend,
dogma after dogma, belief after
belief, idol after idol, has been
ruthlessly destroyed by science.
Like the fabled monster which it
declares never existed it lives up
on itself, proving its own unverity,
for it has thriven upon the destruc
tion of even universally accepted
scientific doctrines. It is not
enough to assert that there was no
Adam, no serpent, no Paradise, no
fall, no Noah, no Babel, no Moses.
It has been thought necessary to
demonstrate that there could have
been no demons, no fairies, no
angels on earth except those in
women's form, of course albiet
all the angels in Scripture and
Milton are men. The credulous
earth has been listening too will
ingly to all this effacement of the
past of itself down even to the
proposal that there whs no Shakes
peare. Before this proposition
has been established, up comes a
cool British scientist, and, without
fear ol gods or men, affirms that
there are no thunderbolts and
nevei were. The scientist will have
his way in time. The world will
linger in tho dictionaries for a few
j'ears, and perhaps be marked,

A Portland Opinion.
The Astorian is urging upon
the people of Clatsop county the
building of a railroad to Clatsop
beach. No better suggestion than
this could be made. Such a road
would be a paying investment from
the start. C'atsop beach, as a
summer resort, possesses attrac
tions better than any other locality
on either the Oregon or Washing
ton territory coast, but the long
ride of thirteen miles over dry.
liot sand, which rises in clouds and
fills the eyes, ears, nose and mouth
has kept the uumber who have
chosen this resort a very limited
one. With a railroad to Clatsop
beach, three or four new hotels
would be neeeded, while the farm
ers of Clatsop plains would have
to increase the number of their
cows and chickens, in order to be
able to supply the increased de
mand for fresh milk, butter and
eggs. Of course the road would
pay during the summer; why not,
also, in winter? The farmers of
the plains would get rich during
the summer, and in the winter
would make frequent trips to
Astoria and buy the little com
forts of life which they now look
upon too much as luxuries. As
toria is growing rapidly, and will
furnish a continually increasing
market for tho Clatsop plains
farmers' products. The railroad
would make the farmer a subur
ban citizen, afford the merchant a
chance to escape from business
cares without losing too - much
time, and be a means of mutual
benefit to both classes in every
way. Oregonian, 15.
