LANDS TO BE RESTORED
Only Part ol Forest Reserve
According to recent reports. Chief
Gilford Pinchot, of the Bureau of
Forestry, as well as other officials,
t ite that only a minor part of the
lands now withdrawn will ever be
converted into forest reserves. In
some cases practically the entire
withdrawal will ultimately be re
stored to entry.
There appears to hare been two
prime reasons for withdrawing tlKse
lands and in many cases the more im
portant of the two was to place the
valuable vacant timber land beyond
the reach of the "scrippers," specu
lators and land grabbers. The only
way this could be done, wliilo exist
ing las continue in force, was by
withdrawing the lands from entry,
and, of course, bona fide eotrymen
hare to suffer along with the others.
As long as these lauds can be kept in
witndrawal, nnder pretense of exami
nation to determine their desirability
for forest reserves, so long will the
publio timber be protected. ,
Iu the meantime the Interior De
partment, with the full sanction and
approval of the administration, is
preparing to put in a hard winter's
work before Congress, in an effort to
secure publio land legislation, such as
the repeal of the timber and stone act,
the desert liud law, and commutation
clause of the homestead act, but more
than all else, the repeal of the forest
reserve lied law, which is responsible
for many of the frands that have been
Secretary Hitchcock says be is in
favor of the outright repeal of the
lien land law, and believes that ex
change should be allowed only to bona
tide settlers within forest reserves.
These persons should be permitted to
relinquish their lands in a reserve
and take an equal tract of approxi
mately the same character and value
from the vacant surveyed publio do
main. Once Congress so ameuds the land
laws, so that graft is cut off, there
will b". but little delay in restoring
to entry the greater portion of the
land now covered by temporary with
drawals. For in that case the lands
can be taken only by bona fide entry
men, and to this there is no objec
tion. Arid Lo.nd Commission.
The State Land Board at its session

Head Office of Golden Drift Mln
Ing Co. Now Located Here.
The head office of the Golden Drift
Mining Co., heretofore located in
Chicago lias been removed to Grants
Pass, where the principal holdings of
the company and the work of the con
struction, ol a power dam acroei Rogne
river ia being poshed. Miss B.
Moore, head book keeper arrived from
Chicago lat week, and will remain
for some time until tho Grants Past
management familiarise themselves
with the details ot the work.
The construction of tiie Golden
Drift dam ia more or loss familiar to
the Grants Pass people bat few of
tliem full realize the importance or
scope of the work nor the benefit it
will be to the agricultural and other
industries in this section. The com
pany owns 1200 "acres of placer min
ing ground which is rich, and every
season has podruced gold iu abundance.
There has alway been one draw
back, viz : the lacs: of water for min
ing purposes a mining season of
few weeks only while there is pay
ground enough to keep a dozen giants
at work 13 months iu the year for
years and years to come. This draw
back the Goldeu Drift company pro
poses to overcome in the construction
of the dam and equipping it with
powerful centrifugal pumps, callable
of lifting water from Rogue river in
sufficient qnautitios to work the mine
continuously oil a larger scale. The
scccess of the company has been an
assured fact for many mouths, not
withstanding the cries of croakers
who have never been outside of our
little valley, and have not investi
gated the wonders of modern engineer-
ing. This undertaking la a big one
but ii perfectly possible as there are
at least three other similar plants
working successfully iu other parts
of the union. There will be four 18
inch, five step compound centrifugal
pumps each weighing 42,000 pounds
and each one of which will deliver
9000 gallons of water per minute.
This will give ample water for sup
plying six pipes equipped with 25.
inch nozzles, giving a forco of 400
feet pressure ou the highest ground
which is about 400 feet above the
dam. It is the intention of the com
pany to ultimately run a system of
irrigation ditches which will cover
nearly 20,000 acres of agrlcnlutral
laud. The power for the mine will
bo generated by IS US-inch turbines
working undir a 20-foot head, and
developing approximately 6000 horse
power. There will also be 16 4H-lncli
wheels dovelopiug the same amount of
power which will be for salo. large
generators will be installed and the
power will be transmitted over wires
to the points of consumption. The
high voltage system will be nsed,
which will make it feasible to carry
the current to a distance of 100 miles.
This power can be profitably convey
ed to the mines for ojierating drills,
hoists, etc, or for use wherever
power or electric lighting is necessary.
It is impossible to even estimate the
importance of this power plant to the
varied industries now in operation or
that may be installed in this valley
in years to come.
Work at the dam was begun in
the spring of 1U02 and has been push-
ed steadily ever since. There are now
about 50 men employed aud at present
they are engaged In filling up the big
13 foot cribs with rocks aud dirt,
which is hauled on cars and damped
directly into the pits by a system of
cables operated by a gasoline engine.
The cars are fil'.ed by a steam shovel
and a' largo amount of earth is
bundled dally. The dam has a width
of 120 feet on the river lied
and 16 feet on top, while the whole
length of the dam is about 700 feet.
Over 3,000,000 feet of timber haa been
used in the construction of the dam.
Bailable fish ladders have been con
structed which allow the salmon and
other fish to continue their way up
the river. It is au interesting sight to

Bert Bice, a young horsethief, was
captured Friday evening at Merlin,
atter eluding Sheriff Parrott, of Doug
las county, and his posse for three
days. Bert, who is about 18 years
old, and had recently been released
from the Oregon penitentiary, and
his brother, Dan, ho is about 20
years old, stole four horses near
Myrtle Point, and were working
their way south to Galice Creek,
where their mother lives.
They were oveihauled near Riddle,
Wednesday, and Dan was captured,
but the younger boy csced the pur
suers, and continued southward,
closely followed by Shreiff Parrott
and deputies. They ovotook him at
Glendale Thursday, aud three shots
were fired, but Bice again escaped iu
the woods, and the next afternoon
succeeded in reaching Merlin, 23
miles further south.
At Merlin Bice ran op against J. P.
McConnell, the store keeper, who
single hsnded and alone captured the
rascal and this put a stop to the run
of the Dcuglas county sheiiff and
Friday night after dark Bice went
into the store and purchased ammu
nition canned beef, condensed milk
and a (stir of shoes. The small ar
tides he stowed away in the pockets
of his slicker. He then asked for cuff
buttons. These articles were in the
rear of the store, aud as McConnell
was wrapping them up, Bice grabbed
gingnrsnai and the shoes aud disap
peared into the darkness and mln.
McCounelll gave chase, thinking
he coo Id make the rascal drop the
shoes at least. Bice was handicapped
with his load, aud McConnell ginned
on him steadily. Bice made several
attempts to get his revolver, but could
not manage it on the run.
At a hundred yards McConnell
caught the- thief by the collar aud
lauded on top of him in the mud.
Cries f jr help brought his wife and
neighbors with rope, and the prisoner
was bound and taken to the store and
was turned over to the Dougli
