The money provided for in the gen
eral appropriation bill voted on at the
recent election and carried by a good
majority, will become available on
July 1st to the various institutions
and purposes for which it is intended. I
This appropriation bill was passed by '
the last legislature bnt the expendi
ture was prohibited by a petition that
was filed with the secretary of state
demanding a vote on it by the people
of the state as provided for under the
now referendum law. This vote could
not be taken until the next general
election, which was the one held this
month. As required by law the state
board, made op of the governor, secre-tary-of-state
and trnasurer went ahead
and fixed the tax levy to raise the
money to meet these appropriations.
The result Is that the greater part of
this'million dollar-) has been collected
in and tnrned over to state treasurer
with other state funds, all to be loan
ed out by him and he to get the in
terest, while the state has been pay
ing interest on warrants issued to
meet the running expenses of itspub
Ho Institutions. This bungle in the
appropriations benefitting only the
state treasurer who, drawing a salary
of but fttOO a year is one of the best
paid state officials.
The alleged cause for holding np the
approbation bill was that many tax
payers were opposed to supporting
fonr state normal schools, the little
one at Drain being especially singled
out for suppression. In order to pre
vent potting the state heavly in debt
with a heavy interest charge the ap
propriation was passed by the people,
but there is a general understanding
the next legislature will make no ap
propriation for the Drain normal and
that the appropriations will be made
in separate bills so a referendum vote
would not hold the entire amount
and cripple the state institutions.
The following are the items em
braced in the appropriation bill and

The question of clean orchards and
perfect frolt in this state is involved
in the outcome of this suit. That the
owners of orchards will not, in many
oases, without compulsion, spray their
fruit trees and destroy those that are
mossy, dirty and useless, is m fact
well attested by the infested fruit
that has appeared in this market in
years pst and by the moss-grown,
pest ridden trees that abound through
out the Willamette Valley. The or-
! chardist who sprays his trees finds his
crop at the mercy of his neighbor who
neglects to do so. It is manifestly
impossible to re-establish and maintain
the reputation of Oregon fruit accord
ing to the required market standard,
nnless these old orchards are destroyed
and the new ones are sprayed at
proper times. The 'thrifty citizen

A nut Hik' Horn Basin Land
Inspector Cuts Down O-icnexrd in
Cla.ckame.s County When
One of the most important pieces of
pnblio land legislation enacted at the
present session of Congress is the law
permitting the homesteading of agri
cultural land in forest reserves. This
legislation is important not alone in
that it places these valuable farm areas
within the reach of the homeseeker,
bnt also because it knocks out the
most prononnced objection to the
government forest reserve system. Of
all the protests made against forest
reserves and their extension, none
was so widespread as the argument
that reserves withdrew from settle
ment and entry countless, fertile val
leys lying along streams that had been
brought within forest reservations.
That objection can no longer be
raised, for this land can be entered in
the manner prescribed in the new law
President Roosevelt and the Public
Lands Commission 'have recognized
that the government forest policy is
not perfect, and it has been their en
deavor to bring about such changes as
will meet legitimate objection. They
soon saw the justice of the demand
of men who sought to make homes in
the at'raotivo valleys which penetrate
every forest reserve of the West, and
at the very beginuing of the prtsent
session the president urged the enact
ment of a law such a that which has
just gone on the statute-books. He
called the attention of congress to the
recommendations on this subject
made by the Public Lands Com mis
Hion, and in due course of time the
bill went through.
The bill in substance provides that
the secretary of agriculture, in his
discretion, may examine and deter
mine the location and extent of land
within forest reserves, permaneut or
temporary, which are ohiofly valuable
for agriculture aud which may be
. occupied for argicultural purposes
without iujury to the forest reserves,
and shall file with the Secre
j tary of the Interior a list and
description of all such land, with a
request that the same be opened to
j entry under the homestead laws. The
, Secretary of the Iuterior, upon receipt
of this request, will declare the land
open to homestead settlement in tracts
not exceeding ltlO acres and not ex
ceeding lnj ilos in length. Prior to
. the actual opculug, however, the fact
1 is to be regularly advertised for a
; period of 00 days. The law provides
; that settlers who occupied land of
1 this character prior to January 1,
! ltfOrt, shall have preference right to
make homestead entiy of the same, if
1 they can show that they are acting in
i Inasmuch as the agricultural land
! within reserves usually occurs in long,
, narrow strips, the entries must nator
j ally be described by metes aud bounds.
