A Step Towards Restoring Unearned
Odd Sections 'o !he People.
At last there in some stir begin
ning to be made in regard to who
owns pr. '.is, to own the immense
urea of lands in-E8tern Oregon
which have been fur years errone
ously termed "railroad lands.''
Congress has met, and among it
first proceedings were the intro
duction, of bills restoring to their
rightful owners, the settlers, , vast
tracts of unearned railroad grants.
Among the many bills introduced,
that of Senator Slater is of the
motet importance .to this country.
It confirms to the Northern Pa
cific Railroad Company all lands
earned by construction of any por
tion of the road, but restores to
settlement or sale several millions
of acres in "Washington Territory
and Oregon, being applicable to
that portion wesof Wallula junc
tion. The right of settlers on odd
sections is preserved,- by allowing
them to' enter "upon liomestead or
pre-emption laws, or purchase, not
more than ICO acres at $1.25 per
8 ere.
Twenty years ago the odd sec
,tio;is for 20 miles a this side of
the Columbia river : were condi
tionally granted to the Northern
Pacific Co., and 20 more miles of
odd 1 sections back towards , the
Blue mountains were reserved to
indemnify the company for what
odd sections had been already
taken by settlers in the first 20
miles. The first 20 miles has nev
er been earned, and although it-is
n notorious fact that almost none
of "the first odd sections had been
taken by-settlers at the time the
grant was ' made, the , farce was
htill continued of reserving the
isecond 20 miles to replac'e what
had never been lost in the first 20
miles. Through the Heppner
Hills to-day, the best land is in
variably found on these odd sec
tions, to which no title can lie ob
tained from either the poverinnent
or railroad company. The former
has conditionally given away the
title, and the latter has condition
ally never earned it.
' This uncertain condition of
things ban . greatly retarded the
wttlement of the ; country, and
caused confusion and annoyance to
the people. If a man settles upon
an odd section the courts look up
on hiin a3 a trespasser, entitled to
no protection in his estate. If
Mr. Slater's bill passes, as it ought,
it will have the effect of opening to
settlement the millions of acres
of land in Umatilla r.nd Wasco
counties, to which at present no :
title can be obtained by settlers.
Lust spring the land oflica at
The Dalles received filings on odd
sections in those indemnity limits,
and one settler will prove up on
each a claim on Dec. 31st, in Hepp
ner. There is no good reason why
he should not obtain his patent in
the usual manner, and other set
tler who made homestead and
pre-emption tilings on indemnity
odd sections six mohths ago should
now take steps to prove , up, and
thus thoroughly test the matter as
to whether the railroad company
can longer wrongfully hold these
An unusually important case h is
been recently decided by Judge
McCreary in the Uuited States Cir
cuit Court of Colorado. The
United States brought suit to can
cel 01 patents to lauds held by the
Colorado Coal and Iron Co. and
others, in lias Animas county.
The patents were obtained through
the pre-emption laws between 1S70
and 1871, and issued from the Pu
eblo lr.nd office. A f terwards it was
found that the patents were irreg
ularly obtained, the patentees be
ing fictitious persons. Testimony
was introduced that the register
and receiver of the land office were
jMirties to the fraud. The defence
churned the deeds were now good,
granting they wer3 ftaidulently
obtained, because they are in the
hands of innoceat parties. The
court held adversely, and rendered
, a decision in favor of the eom
plajnaut, which cancels the title t)

wool growing industry, he said, is
closely allied to agriculture, and the
farming class are interested in the res

circumstance will give the bill strength

His state had suffered most severely
from the reduction male in the present
tariff law. There were in 4,0)O wool
growers, and their loss on sales of wools
of the la t annual dipping amounted to
more than a million dollars. The first

both political parties there have pledged
themselves to work for the restoration
