"Grants Pahs, Ohkuon, 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 which calls for 1 1,004, 439. 90: Oregon state insane asylum, mai tenance $400,000.

Irrlg.it iou comm Union, expenses of $.YJ4.40. of $3040, the alleged value of the trees thus destroyed. 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 fiuds spraying his own orchards una vailing while the trees o' his neigh bor across the way are white with wooly aphis, mottled with San Jose scale, or a breeding place for the cod lln moth. This statement carries its own evl dence and argument. It follows that Oregon mnst either abandon its pre' tentious as a state able to raiBe frnit as fine as any in the world or take measures to compel indolent, thriftless orchardists to come np to the staudard set by the Board of Horticulture for the production of clean fruit.

Inspector Cuts Down O-icnexrd in Cla.ckame.s County When Owner Refused. 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 good faith. 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. t svurnn a nm TTt A rnr e I LiV) !
