MAKE THE LAW PRACTICAL
Hon. Joseph N. Teal's letter
asking the settler's view as to
the working of the public land
laws should be given attention
in order to assist the Conserva
tion Commission in arriving at a
correct conclusion and enable it
to make proper recommendations.
That the present homestead law
is far from being practical is not
questioned. How best to remedy
it is a matter that concerns every
present and prospective settler.
and should be carefully consider
ed. The law provides that no lat
ent shall issue until the expira
tion of three years from date of
entry; that the entryman must
establish actual residence upon
the land within six months after
such date; that he must, begin
ning with the second year culti
vate not less than one-sixteenth,
and beginning with the third
year of the entry, cultivate not
less than one-eighth of the area
of the land entered.
Regulations issued by the In
terior Department says "a mere
breaking of the soil will not
meet the terms of the law, but
such breaking or stirring of the
soil must also be accompanied by
planting or the sowing of seed
and tillage for a crop other than
native grasses. " The remaining
vacant lands east ot the Cascade
Mountains and now subject to
entry, as a rule, lacks sufficient
rainfall to produce agricultural
crops without the necessity of
resorting to the system common
ly known as "dry farming" and
the Department of Agriculture,
(an other branch of this same
government) expends large sums
of money in support of experi
mental farms where it is actually
demonstrated to the farmer that
after the first breaking of the
soil it must be persistently culti
vated for at least one year in or
der to conserve sufficient mois
ture to produce a crop and that
seeding the soil to grain alter
the first cultivation is an absolute
waste of seed, money and energy.
To ask the real homcbuilder,
the man with limited means and
nearly always with a family, who
settles on an arid or semi-arid
homestead, to support his family,
build a habitable house, dig a
deep and expensive well, clear,
fence and plow his land, purchase
farming implements, seed grain
and hay for his horses and cow,
haul his wood, etc., etc., and live
on his claim for three years, ( with
the exception of five months each
year during which time he may
by chance find employment at
ordinary farm wages) when it is
only a source of expense and not
capable of contributing to the
support of himself or family, is
next to prohibitory.
Give the toor man a chance;
allow him, Bay three years after
date of entry to establish resi
dence upon the land, require of
him during that period to file
annual proof of improvements
and cultivation in the local land
office. After that length of time
the land should be in such a state
of cultivation that it would ordi
narily support a family and the
entryman should be required to
show two vears residence on the
land together with the actual
production of the soil as a basis

There will also be horse racing,
base ball eames, trap shooting,
dancing. It has been suggested
that there be a big display of
lire works on th evening of the
4th and the celebration will last
for three davs.
Word was received from Sump
ter Thursday announcing that
the baseball team from that place
would coine here to play I he local
team on (he 4th ami it is likely
there will be a series of games.
Provident Doneganof the com
mercial Club has appointed the
following committee to look after
the celebratien: J. M. Dal ton,
Piatt Randall, Frank Davey, Sam
Mothershi -ad and Archie Mc
(iowan. The committee will take charge
of the affairs as follews: Dalton,
races and fire works; Randall,
vocal music and decorations; Dav
ey, printing and parade; Mothers
head, literary program and bnnd;

County Court adjourned last
Tuesday evening after attending
to a vast amount of business
W. E. Huston completed his work
of experting the county records
and his report was accepted. It
was a most complete report and
covers every detail. It will be
published in pamphlet form and
distributed nmong the tax payers.

I'.rainion road on Pine Creek was

Stock Inspector Robinson was

The court made an order set
ting aside $2000 to be used at
such time as necessary to take
advantage of the agricultural ex
tension work but Commissioner
Pain dissented and filed a protest
on the ground of voluntary in
debtedness. The law prevents
the county assuming an indebted
ness beyond a certain amount --
voluntarily-- therefore he objects.
No warrant was issued and since
Mr. Bain states he will enjoin
should it be attempted, likely the
matter will remain as it is.
BACK TO THE SOIL.
The agricultural extension bill
passed by the recent session of
the state legislatnre is certainly
one of merit and each county
must do its part toward making
it available. The provisions are
such as would appear equitable
and just as the extension work
should be of sufficient importance
to each section as would justify
the co-operation of any county.
This law not only provides for
short course work in such counties
that take advantage of it but also
provides for an experienced man
to spend his entire time in the
field going from farm to farm
and teaching the man right on
his place how he can best succeed
under the conditions prevailing
and the equipment he has at his
disposal. The farmer is given

on Water Works
The Eastern Oregon Engineer

city water works at the council
meeting last Wednesday night
which places the completed plant
within reasonable cost and should
with this move that might be
worth considering is a demonstra
tion farm provided for the city
man who doesn't know anything
about farming; the fellow who
knows nothing but sky scrapers
and paved streets. A farm main
tained by the state or even better, i
by private parties, of sufficient
acreage to justify diversified
farming, could be established for
the novice who would be given
the privilege of working entirely
under scientific men for a period
of three years, there to learn
farming in all its branches, his
labor to compensate for his main
tenance and go from there a fin
ished farmer with positive know
ledge of his surroundings. This
would not only be of a practical
nature but would be a paying in
vestment to those undertaking
The same proposition might
apply to the experimental farms
now being conducted throughout
the state so far as the city man
is concerned, i ne young man
without means to attend the ag
ricultural college could be given
a practical farming course on one
of these farms at a saving of ex
pense to the farm and result in
much good. .
Preparing for Big Celebration
At a meeting of the Commer
cial (Hub Tuesday night arrange
ments were furthered toward one
of the biggest 4th of July celebra
tions ever held in Harney county.
The finance committee has met
with good success in securing
funds and it is planned to make
it a "hummer." There will be a
big parade, with literary exer
cises in the forenoon, including
music, patriotic addresses, etc,
two pumps each with a capacity
of 450 gallons a minute, This
duplicate plant is planned to
make it possible to have water
under any circumstance, when
one might be out of commission.
A tank of 50,000 gallons capacity
on a 85 foot tower.
The entire expense is estimated
not to exceed $50,000 complete
and certainly is within reason.
With such figures it should
prompt early action toward u
bond election and the necessary
arrangements to install the
Presbyterian Church Tomorrow.
Morning worship at 11 a. m.
