PUBLIC LAND LEGISLATION.
The conviction that tlio legislation
of tbo United Statea.and the adminis
trative policy of tho government in
relation to the public lands have
erred on the sido of looseness in the
past, and that the time has come for
the adoption of a stricter line of pol
icy, has grovra in strength in the re
cent past It has been strengthened
in a very definite way by the recogni
tion of a substantial basis for it on the
part of high administrative officers.
In the last annual report of (he secre
tary of the interior that officer re
ferred to the recognition by his im
mediate predecessor of the evils and
abuses connected with the public land
system, and of the impossibility of
dealing adequately with them witntne
means and authority at his com
mand. His own conclusions were not
only confirmatory of this position in
general, but went, still further. He
declared that with the existing laws
in force, and the appliances used for
their perversion in vigorous operation,
every attempt by mere administrative
agencies to prevent the evils comJ
plained of would be fruitless and una
vailing. As the result of a careful
consideration of tho subject, he rec
ommended the immediate and total
repeal of the preemption laws, the
timber culture acta the relinquish
ment acts, tho cash entry laws, and
the desert land law. His idea was
that the public lands subject to dis
posal should be entered exclusively
under the homestead laws, and that
the other laws should be repealed by
a short act from tho operation of
which tho mineral lands, the timber
reserves and some others should be
These suggestions of secretary La
mor have been adopted in part in a
bill dealing with the publio lands
which has just been passed by the
house of representatives. It classifies
all of the publio lands as agricultural,
timber, mineral, desert and rcsorved.
It repeals the preemption and timber
culture laws, but authorizes mineral
and stone lands to be disposed of un
der existing laws. Citizens, or per
sons declaring their intention to be
come such, are allowed to enter 1G0
acres of iron or coal lands at the price
of $10 per acre. Tho sections relat
ing to timber lands forbid the sale of
such lands, but allow the timber to be
disposed of under proposals, and per
mit settlers to take timber not com
mercially valuable for domestic use.
Where minerals are discovered on
tracts where the timber has been sold,
it is provided that such lands may be
entered as mineral lands. The resi
dents of tho western territories are
permitted to cut timber under exist
ing laws for six months after the pass
ago of the act, and tho timber cut
must be removed within five years.
Tho president is authorized to set
apart tracts of forest lands as public
reservations. Isolated tracts "of
less than 160 acres may be
sold at not less then $1.25
per acre. Tho sections relating to
desert lands authorize any person to
enter a 320 acre tract of such land
upon affidavit that it is for his own
benefit, and not for a corporation,
that he intends to cultivate by irriga
tion, and upon a payment of from $5
to $20, varying with tho size -of tho
entry. Patents are to issue for such
lands, however, only when one-eighth
of tho land has been irrigated and cul
tivated within three years and upon
payment of 25 cents per acre. The
provisions relating to agricultural
lands allow heads of families, making
affidavit that the land is for their own
use, to enter quarter section tracts
where they do not own that amount
of land in any state or territory, upon
a payment of $5 or 10, 'according to
the size of the entry. Entrymen are
required to establish residence upon
their claim within six months after
entry in habitable houses, to reside
thereon continuously for five years, to
cultivate at least ten acres, when they
may take out patents. Such nre the
leading features of the measure which
has just passed the house. Its pas
sage is a recognition of the sentiment
demanding a more careful regulation
of the means for disposing of and aa
quiring public lands, jt sentiment
which has grown with the decrease of
the public domain and which must
before long be satisfied by effective
The Alta man has his little pencil

"the wholesale use of illicit means."

THE DYNAMITE PLOT.
Arrest of Another Han on Suspicion.
Landreth lianged at Dallas Yesterday.
(SPECIAl TO THE ABTOEIAJf.)
Chicago, July 6. J.: A. Baureisn,
an officer of the Aurora, His., Loco
motive division of the brotherhood of
engineers, was brought to Chicago
this morning under arrest by the
deputy TJ. S. marshal. He i3 charged
with complicity in the alleged dyna
mite plot against the Chicago, Bur
lington &Qnincy railroad company.
Baureisn is not the mysterious fourth
man who eluded the officer yesterday
when the three arrests were made.
In regard to the latest arrest, general
manager Stone of the Burlington
road said this merning: "Baureisn
is the chief engineer of division 32 of
the Brotherhood of locomotive engi
neers at Aurora, which is one of the
principal lodges on our road. For
two years he has been a member of
the grievance committee and he is
also chairman of the Aurora local
grievance committee. He was ar
rested under the United States
statutes which prohibited the car
riage of 'dynamite on passenger
trains." Beyond this ho was not dis
posed to talk. It is evident, how
ever, that his company regarded the
arrest ss an important one.
Baureisn states that he knew noth
whatevor of tho charges preferred
against him, and that the arrest was
a total surprise. Of the other men
arrested he said he knew Bowles from
the fact that he had been iu his di
vision of the Brotherhood; with the
others he had no acquaintance.
When asked if he suspected that he
was being watched, he said not more
tnan anybody else. He had known
that there were detectives on the
ground in Aurora, doggiag the broth
erhood men, but had no reason to
suspect why he was particularly
Baureisn is an open face, broad
shouldered man, about 35 years of
age, with bronzed, honest looking
features. He talked very frankly and
bore himself in a very manly way.

Seattle and Walla Walla Tournaments.
Seattle, July 5. In the firemen's
tournament to-day Spokane was in
the front rank again, as yesterday.
The Spokane hook and ladder team
made a fine start, but lost their ladder
near the scratch, and in some way
were allowed another trial, when they
won. Time, 33 seconds; prize, S225.
Seattle was second. Tune, 33 3-5
seconds, prize, $100.

Fast Portland boys made a magnifi

The same may be said about the Al
bany team. The latter worked under
the disadvantage of having no prac
tice with hydrants at home. The
prizes in this race were as follews:
First, championsip and $200; second,
$150; third, S100. The Vancouver,

the Seattle team, which the directors
of the association will consider later.

Walla -Walla, July 5. Tho at
tendance at the firemen's tournament
to-dny was very large. The Pendle

this race were: Teams lo rnn 150
yards to engine, attach and lay 200
feet of hose, put on pipe, and get wa

passes through tho pipe; carts to

Championship raee: Teams to run
300 feot to engine, attach, lay 400 feet
of hose, put on pipe, get water, take
off one section of hose from cart and
replace second section from engine;
carts to carry 400 feet of hose. Our
Boys ran first, and by mistake carried
one section of hose too muoh, neces
sitating a run of fifty feet further, so
the other teams were compelled to do
the same. The course was slightly
down hill. Our Boys won in one
minute and fifteen seconds; time of

A Good Performarr.
The best minstrel performance
given ou tho Sound for many years
was that given at Frye's opera house
last night. It proved to be as adver
tised, a "Big Black Boom." Messrs.
Hicks & Sawyer have not misrepre
sented their company, and have thirty
artists in the line of minstrelsy. Tho
singing was good, the songs new and
sparkling, and the usual grist of
black face chesnuts wero entirely
omitted. The . performers are all
colored men, and don't require much
burnt cork. The house was well
filled and will be crowded to-night.
