PUBLIC LAND PROOFS.
People who do not like to dis-
close too much of their motives and
methods in taking public lands are
'fond of quoting court decisions to
"the effect that examination by
;pecial agents is extra-legal mid
need not be submitted to by claim
unts, and that certain oaths requir-
brethreu until the Hock was reduced
to one enormous woK. He wns
a monster of his species, hut that
was small consolation to those who
had been bnteu along the way. The
Ihw of supply and demand will con
trol the market for timber lifud.
Sales today nuiht be made at to
rlrtv's notations. Prices will be
better in the future probably, but
thnt won't help the fellow who
can't wait. He who can wait docs
nut need to enter a pool; he who
can't wait doesn't gain by entering
the pool. All this is entirely aside
from the bearing the ool may have
on the question of title.
People on the south of Crooked
river ought to have better means of
crossing that stream. TJtcre is not
a practicable bridge on the whole
..,'.,. ii...i n-.. ..' river. At Trail there is n bridge

deponents to the pains and penalties
'of perjury. All this maybe tech
nically true, but it gives small com
fort to the laud sharks, nnd the
honest claimants seldom object to
Uhc forms prescribed for getting
The laws for disposal of the pub-
jed teams cannot, go that way.
Thetc ought to lc a good bridge at
forests, where a large volume of
travel passes, folding the river
when the water is not too high. At
Princville the river was choked by
abuttments in order that the bridge
might beshort.nud the inevitable oc
curred the water would not stand

discretion in the power of the of- ...... . ..
ficials charged with the duty of en
.forcing them. Those officials must
,' be satisfied that the laws of con-
. gress nave ocen compuea wmi in
good faith or they will not pass
"proofs for title. The extra ex
"animations arc methods devised foi
i ascertaining the good faith and
' legality of the acts of land claini
ants. No claimant need submit to
-them, it is true. Neither need any
'claimant make any final proof if it
"does not please him to do so. He
need npt take the land at all. But
if he does want the land he must
comply with the law (or commit
fraud), and he must in some man
gier make it known to the laud of
ficials that he has complied with
the law. To enable him to do so
the land department has prepared
,a certain form of examination. If
in certain exigencies that form of
examination is not sufficient to
satisfy the officers who arc to pass
on those matters, additional ex
aminations are required.
Norte of these forms arc in the
statutes, nor are they specifically
authorized by statute. They are
devised by the responsible officials
as the best practicable means, the
easiest and cheapest, for making
known that the claimants have
'complied with the law. If claim
auts choose to ignore these cxamin
titidns and go to the courts to estab
lish their claims they may do so,
but they will find it both expensive
and uncertain business.
No man or woman is obliged to
lake government land, but if he or
bhe wants slich property the best
method to get it is to observe the
rules' and regulations laid down
Uy the land department for satisfy
ing the officials that the laws have
been complied with. They are not
devised to put hardship upon honest
citizens, but to make it as hard as
possible for a dishonest claim to be
driven through. It is not wise to
disregard them, but men can do
foolish thing!; if they want to in
this'ldnd of freedom.
strength of the bridge rests. The
county court owes it to all the coun
try south of Crooked river, as n
I matter of justice ns well us good
policy, to provide sufe and practic
able means for crossing that stream
at all seasons.
Ilia l-os.ill Country.
Adnui .KoUuiun, who has ' n
homestead out on the Princville
road three miles ftoui lleud, writes
fiom Possil, where he 1ms gone, to
settle) up the estate of his mother,
and where he hits taken his family
for the winter, that that country is

cents a bushel, flour f.j 11 barrel.
Hay is nominally 10 a ton but
theie is none in the market. The
Koum'aus expect to return to lloud
in the spring.
J. A. McCall.of MuHtidc, Mich.,
and IS. IS. Getchell, of Glencoe,
Minn., have been staying in llend
a few days the past week. They

The Silver Lake Bulletin has
been nbsorbed by the Central Ore
gonial), of thnt place, William Hol
der, of the Bulletin, taking an in
terest in the consolidated property
with Messrs Bailey and Kclsay.
The need for two newspapers there
had not been proved by eight
mouths of struggle. There is a
good field for one newspaper; and
we expect to see it fully occupied
by the Central Oregonian.
It may be, after all, that the
stockmen, who have been fretting
over the scarcity of hay and the
prospect of losses because of in
sufficient feed, will be favored with
a mild winter. A severe winter
would undoubtedly bring heavy
losses; n mild one would reduce
feed to a living price and put Ore

that the young moon has been lying

Timber 'claimants who rely on
the sale of their land to recover
their investment nre not likely to
gain anything from entering a pool.
There are the pool expenses to be
