The suspeusiun served a good
nurtKMie, and was the means of
preventing many fraudulent onirics.
While a rigid scrutiny of all entries
under this act will Iw continued, It
will have the effect of allowing all
valid entries to 1 patented.
At the conference at the white
house Monday morning the public
laud situation in Oregon was
thoroughly reviewed. The j!iin
tort stoutly protested, against the
contfiiunuceorthc suipeusfou policy
of the interior department, on the
ground that it worked inexcusable
hardship 011 bona fide settlers, and
was seriously retarding the devel
opment of the state.
Secretary Hitchcock, in a state
ment submitted to the president,
explained that the extent to which
frauds had been perpetmited in Ore
gon made it necessary that the ut-
most precaution sliouid be taken to
head off other fraudulent operations,
under thu timber and stone act.
President Roosevelt, after con
sidering both sides, directed tlw
secretary to revoke his former
order, ami hereafter timber and
atone entries will pass to patent, as
soot as they hnvc been approved
by the commissioner of the general
Itnnklni; and Investment Hnterprlse.

scth, of While Karth, N. Dakota,
who were, in Ilcud on laud business

business situation here and were so

they would probably be out here in
the spring and engage in business.
Mr. Mutts now runs n retail lum
ber yard in White Karth and Mr.

dise business there. Closely affiliat
ed with them is J. P. Smerud,
cashier of the First State Dank of
White Hnrtb, vlu is also said to be
desirous of engaging in business
here. Arrangements have been
talked over with reference to the
erection of a substantial building
on the ve.st bank of the Deschutes
opposite Sisemore's for the accom
modation of a banking and invest
ment house by ' the White Karth
people, and other lines of business
are to be gathered about that.
These are conservative, substantial
young btiHiiicM men and will ben
