Mr. J. D. Fvnton of McMinville has
completed the survey of the Grand
llonde Indian reservation. In which
be has been employed for the past four
months. The reservation is eight by
twelve miles in size, and contains
ninotv-six sections. There are several
donation claims included in its boun
daries, comprising four or five sections.
The survey has tieen made with the
idea of alloting lands in severalty to
the Indians, and forty-five sections
have been surveyed into .forty-acre
tracts. Some fifteen years ago a por
tion of the .reservation was surveyed
into twenty-acre tracts by Hon. D. P.
Yhonipson, and many of" the Indians
have since been settled on these tracts.
There is some anxiety among them as
to how the new allotment will be
made. It is probable that each w ill be
allowed to keen the tract he has im
proved and will be given enough else
where to make up his quota. Orcgo-

called on them, they stated that they
had quit work on the Oregon PaeUle
railroad, discharged the men ettiploy
ed there and annullwl and rescinded
their eontrnet with the company. Mr.
Ik nnett had a contract for forty tulles
east from Albany, and Mr. Hunt had
a rontraet for the next fifty miles.
"What caused you to annul your
contraeis?" asktnt the reixrter.
Mr. Bennett said: "J teen use of the
company's lion-fuHHhnent of their
part of the contract, In that they failed
to furnish estimate of the amount of
work done under the contract. They
had a engineer A. K. Hehenk, who
was Incompetent and wnwrupulous
and s wllUustool of the tnanagers of
the company, who pv hi only a part
of the estimates, and the company did

Mr. Hunt Mid he had annulled his

Ikrth Mr. Hunt and Mr. lien net t are
