An inch nn n quarter of moisture
Wednesday is n pretty good record
for nil nrid country. Ami that rec
ord was nearly duplicated yester
day. The Hritish bombarded a town
ami captured the sultan in that
odd corner of Africa known as
Somaliland, but nil the news re
porters were away on the Russo
Japanese detail and the African
performance got scant mention and
that was evidently sent around to
the newspaper office the ladies'
Hearst has failed in his campaign
for the prcsideutal nomination be
cause he did not adopt the Hon.
John ltarrctt ns his running mate.
That team would have constituted
not only the Greatest Show on
Karth, or elsewhere, but it would
have beeu mighty diverting to sec
their effort to get ahead of each
other in jackasstical conspicuosity.
According to the text of the cir
cular issued by the general land
office at Washington, carrying not
ice of the amended law authorizing
the taking of land applications and
proofs outside the land office, it is
made clear that such papers may
.be executed outside of the land
district in which the land lies, pro
vided it be in the sanic county.
From this it appears that such
business may be transacted at
Bend for laud as far south as the
southern limit of Crook county,
including all of township 22 south.
Beyond that limit the business
musttbedonc at Lakcvicw, Silver
Lakt or Klamath Falls. Tliercls
a U. S. commissioner at Silver
Lake, the county clerk at Klamath
Falls and the land office itself at
The senate committee on public
lands last Monday ended for this
se4on the attempt to change the
land laws. The bill to repeal the
desert land act and the commution
provision of the homestead laws
was killed by a tie vote, Senator
Fulton voting against the measure.
He took the very saue position
that proper enforcement of the laws
will prevent fraud under them;
that they are not of themselves
more conducive to fraud than
other laws and that their benefits
are too great to admit of setting
them aside lightly. Senator Ful
ton is undoubtedly right. And it is
not impossible to get a careful ad
ministration of the land laws.
This will be difficult if land officers
are to be clieap politicians ignor
ant of their duties and careless of
the results of their acts, but with
men of honesty and intelligence iu
office the land affairs of the govern
ment stioulu be as tree ot frauds as
any other department of the public
service. Considerable improve
ment along this ' line has beeu
made in Oregon in the past two
years and more may be done. The
"wide open" practices of two years
ago have been entirely checked.
It is to be observed, too, that the
greatest abuses were under the
lieu laws; indeed, all the looseness
touching private applications and
proofs was but a drop in the bucket
compared with the crying evils of
the scrip business. Individual
claimants had small show for any
thing the scrippers wanted. That,
it is true, is largely fortified by
statute, but the howl about the
homestead, and desert, and timber
and stone laws comes with bad
grace from those so prominently
identified with the enormous lieu
laud profits. In this matter legal
light comes wofully near to being
moral wrong. The action of the
house of representatives in pass
ing n bill to prevent locating for
est reset ve scrip on timber laud
is a step in the right direction, but
the senate will not take the matter
up until next winter ami then
may defeat it.

A. M. Drake, a prominent pio
neer iu the irrigation of the Crook
county desert, was iu town on
Tuesday, enroute to Portland.
Although Mr. Drake's irrigation
interests have been merged iu the
new company the Do-chutes Irri
gation & Power Co. he still retains
large interests iu Dcnd. The Uend
townsite, of which Mr. Drake is
the owner, is one of the most pic
turesque spots on the Deschutes,
and the surrounding country pos
sesses nil the elements which arc
required to insure n prosperous
future for the town.-Antelope Herald.
