The career of Colonel Mitchell in
land affairs ba« been long and re
markable. After four or fiye years
service as the official shorthand re
porter of the famous Court of Com
missioners of the Alabama Claims,
the court which distributed the
fifteen million dollars wrenched
from England on account of the de
predations of the Confederate cru-
sier “Alabama,” Mr Mitchell be
came private secretary to the sec
retary of the interior, Carl Schurz.
While in that capacity he was ap
pointed special agent of the depart
ment and with Gen. Williamson,
then commissioner of the general
land office made a tour of investi
gation of the Pacifio coast, raising
havoc amongst many wrong doers
in land matters Being impressed
with the country he decided to set
tle in the Pacific Northwest, and
was appointed chief clerk of the U.
S. Land Office at Walla Walla
While in that position, he was made
Land Agent of the Oregon Improve
ment company, that company hav
ing purchased from the Northern
Pacific a large tract of lands, com
prising the major portion of what
is now Eastern Washington. When
he had completed the work of or
ganization. Mr Villard offered him
the position of chief clerk of the
Northern Pacific Land department,
and subsequently added the assis
tant land commissionership of the
Oregon and California land depart
ment. These positions he filled
when he accepted the position re
His services with the government
land affairs covered six years, with
the Oregon Improvement company
and the Northern Pacific ten years
and with the Valley and Cascades
Mt. Wagon road company, IS years,
in all a continuous and important
connection with lands of nearly
forty years. Is it any wonder he
would want to rest? Each position
required capacity above the ordina
ry, and was permeated with temp
tation and full of opportunity; still
M. Mitchell is a poor man to day.
He early made it a rule not to take
advantage of his position and has
stuck to it much to his credit but
detrimental to his pocket book.
The company parts with Mr.
Mitchell most regretfully. The
letter of acceptance of the resigna
tion pays him a deserved tribute
for his scrupulous care of the in
terests of the company’s affairs.
