The vast de posits of ore that aro within the borders of this state are simply phenomenal. 'Wherever I went I found the greatest evidence of prosperity and niore activity than I liavo ever seen before in the mining matters of the state. "There is a crying need for bettor railroad facilities, better smelting advantages and mora generous sup port from local people. I cannot un derstand why capital will not invest in such wonderful propositions. Were the showings in Utah, Colorado or Montana they would not be idle any length of time. In Portland there aro millions of dollars stored aud not earning, whou if properly invested in mining, this money would bring from 13 to 3.) per cent a year and perlia more.

"Tho resources of Oregon are won derful. Tho oro will be extracted, railroads built and the country must from its gei.eral outlook pass Colo rado from a mining standpoint. "If local capital will not take np the chances afforded, then ontside capital will, and Oregon must take her place among her mineral product ing sister states.

Commissioner Richards, of the General Laud Ollice, has given ont the following statement couooruinij the policy and practice of the land eftice in the matter of the withdrawal of public lauds from settlement: There seems to bo a misapprehen sion respecting withdrawals of public lauds from entry under certaiu of the laud laws aud suspension of final action upon certain classes of entries already made. Generally shaking, land is withdrawn from entry iu order to preveut its being appro priated iu a manner or for a purpose not contemplated by law. In consenuenco of a protiosod forest reserve, a withhdrawal is made of all tho land that will probably be included iu its boundaries in order to guard against speculative entries uiadu for the purpose of obtaining lieu land. Withdrawals under the irrigation act are for tho purjioso of reserving the land for homestead entry the only kind permitted by tho act and to prevent sioeulativo entries. Land containing oil or minerals is with drawn from agricultural entry, as mineral lauds are sold in smaller quantities an 1 at higher prices than farming lands. "Filial action is often usicndcd uiHiu individual eutriea or a class of entries iu certain localities ponding an investigation as to whether or not there has been a compliance with the requirements of the law. Thero is no withdrawal of land in this cornice tiou or any suspension of the law nor interference with entries properly made. "In November, l'.H)3, there was such a susiH'iision of final action upon en tries made nuder tho timber and stone act iu Washington, Oregon and Call foruia. This sus(iensiou as made up on evidence of collusive entries in those states whereby individuals aud corporations were obtaining title to largo areas of valuable timber land, whereas the law provides tho entry shall be nutde for the exclusive use aud benefit of tho entrymaii. "That this action did not hinder or Interfere with entries under this act is shown by the fact that while there were 21117 timber aud stone eu tries made iu t.n states named dur ing the fiscal year ending June RO, VMY1, there were 11145 such entries made in those states during the fiscal year ended Juno .10, ltHl',1, and of this latter number, SJM4 entries were made after January 1, 1IH1!I, while the or der of huhj elision was iu force, whili but 'J1U7 such entiies were made In the entire fiscal year IUII'2. As fast as tho entries iu these stales cau examined, all of those which have been proiierly made are passed to patent while the Hiiien sioii continues as to thu others, pend ing a hearing in the local land ollice, No cancellation in made uihiu report of a special agent until opsirtiiuity for hearing has been afforded the eu trvnniB. " A QUEER LEGAL TANGLE Negro Who VV'&a Hung Another Chance. Ho A remarkable story comes from the ltelgiiin Congo. A native of the IiaKoka tribe was to have been bangeil for cannibalism, and during his im prisonment was so worked Uxn by the represent at iniH of the missionary haplain as to the happiness of the world into which he was about to enter that the nergo offered to hang himself out of hand to get there. This sirting offer was not accepted, and the nergo was h inged by oidiiiary procedure. After hanging about 10 minutes the doctor pronounced the culprit, to be dead, and the body win) being carried to the cemetery by four ua( ivoH when, almost at the gate, It sat Ixilt upright and begun discoursing of heaven to tin; hearers, who lied, dropping their burden.

New York Pevper Thinks ."Man on Horteb&ck" la Coming. ro we losing our freedom of speech and actiou? Tho Independent thinks we are, and that moral freedom generally in this country is wantisg. 'Tho law permits Ireedom almost to tho extent of liceuse; but tno thousands of organizations which have sprung up to foster 'causes' in numerable nave created a law out side of the law which is becoming morn tyranuical than courts or legi da tun's would Iu these days dart to be. What politician dares to sav what he thinks ot the machine and the boss? What teacher in the public school dares to express his opinion o tho text-books ill history that are forced upon him by teimiornnco Inebriates? Have we freedom of conduct? Do men and women in America show as much vigorous iucdcpciidouoo iu their loinestio arrangements, their social relationships and their moral example as our kinsmen iu Kuglaud do, where wo were wont to imagine, the rever ences for tradition and the fear of Mrs. Cirundy are serious barriers to individual independence? Tho ques tion is at least a fair one. Thero is certainly an increasing tendency towards Intolerance in this country. The spirit of our constitu tion allows every man to bavo his say and do as ho pleases so long as he does not transgress the law. Hut majorities are becoming more and more tryaiinicitl. They are not willing to submit to criticism formerly they were. Moral pressure is brought to bear on minorities to reduce them to silence. Associations of various kinds exert a coercive force against those who express opinions or advocate action hostile to the views held by tho several anno ciatious. A man in public lite can hardly afford to take a decided stand on many Inuiortaut quest ions lest there rise up a horde ot enemies against him. As The Inileiieiiilent says, the mob spirit, culminating in lynching, is only the extreme manifestation of mass tyranny. This is a tendency which leads straight to dcsHitlsi. The tyranny of the mob is anarchy. Anarchy is intolerable. Out of anarchy emerges always the Man on Horseback, who restores order by force and rules the nation by tho right of power. We are yet a long way from the condition in which a desHt would be welcomed tint it is well to stop evil tendencies iu their small beginnings. DEATH OF G. S.
