Public Is Deceived.
Roseburg— It has just come to the
notlca of the local land office In this
city that a great deal of misrepre
sentation Is being Indulged in by
parties in this city who would bene
fit thereby in reference to the re
storation to entry of a part of the
Umpqua forest reserve.
The facts In the matter are: On
March, 1907, the government with- |
drew from the public domain with f
other lands 92,000 acres of land and
established them in the Umpqua for- [
est reserve. On these 92.000 acres
were many settlers and much land
had been taken under the timber
land laws, practically all of the val
uable lands. About two months ago
the government decided to restore
to entry the unsettled and unappro
priated tracts remaining of the 92,-
000 acres and a notice »o this efTec’t
The land thrown
open is therefore not the entire 92,-
000 acres, but that land which was
not appropriated prior to March 2,
1907, when the lands were taken
into the legal reserve, which, accord
ing to the local land office is about
5 per cent o f the original 92,000
acres, and this Is the culls, or un
Advertisements have appeared in
local papers and in papers through
out this state and in Washington,
signed by the two local abstract com
panies in this city, stating that 92,-
000 acres of valuable fruit, farming
and dairy lands were to be thrown
open to entry on January 20, and
as a result many have journeyed to
this city to secure a portion of such
lands. When they found out the
facts In the case they were not back

Madras A fter Oil.
Madras— With the erection of a
huge derrick on the west slope of
Grizzly Butte, a few miles south of
this place, and the Installation of a
carload o f machinery shipped direct
from the oil fields of Pennsylvania,
drilling has been resumed with re
newed energy during the past few
days. It is confidently believed that
a vast deposit of petroleum will be
tapped within a short time.
M ttle doubt Is entertained that
petroleum will be encountered in
paying quantities. Springs and wells
In the vicinity for years past have
been so impregnated with oil that
they are useless for domestic pur
poses and not a few are so oily that
cattle refuse to drink the contents.
Coyote War to Begin.
Pendleton— January is to spell
death to the coyotes In the state of
Oregon, according to plans which
have been announced by Secretary
Dan P. Smythe, of the State Sheep
Commission and the State Wool-
coming month the flockmasters of
the state are to wage a concerted
and systematic warfare upon the
greatest enemy the woolgrower has
to contend with. Dogs, guns, traps
and poison are all to be brought into
requisition, and It iB expteted that
the number o f coyotes can be great
