N. P. SETTLERS MAY
TAKE LIEU LAND
Settlor who bavo taken up land 'u
Klickitat county upon tlie old North
ern Paoillo grants, soon red under con
ditions of building the branch line
from Alnsworth to Tacoma and the
main line from Wallula to Foreland,
will not be compelled to surrender
their present holdings under the latest
instructions from the acting commis
sioner transmitted to Keginter Uillis,
says a Walla Walla dispatch. The set
tlers are given the option of electing
to retain the lands entered upon, or
to surrender them and take lieu land
The overlap of the railroad grants
and the subsequent rulings, reversals
and supreme court decisions served
to completely mix the titles and
claims and the tanglu has resulted In
the'.now instructions, given as follows:
"The luud heroin described are
within the primary limits of the grant
to the Northern l'aoillo Railroad com
pany for the constructed branch line
for its road between Alnsworth and
Taoonia and was listed by the com
tianv on aoooiiut of the grants July 27,
1887. These lands are alsojwltbin the
withdrawal on general grants for the
unoonstruoted main line btttoen wai'
lula. Wash., and Portland under the
forfeiture act of September '.), 18!K),
for the reason the listing therefor was
canceled by letter "F" of June lit,
"On April 25, 1905, the secretary of
the Interior issuod Instructions in tnis
oluss of oases which are to the effect
that in the adjustment of the grant to
the said company within the overlap
iu question, the company must be
credited for the full . amount of the
odd numbered sections within the
primary limits and such said sections
as were disposed of under the former
ruling that the company was entiueu
to a moloty of said lands as are to be
listed for relinquishment ty tne com
pany under the provisions or tne com
nanv act of Julv 1. 181)8.
"Now, therefore, the homestead
claims described, appearing to coma
within the provisions of said act, you
are hereby instructed to notify eaob
entryman. or his transferee, it any,
that he will be allowed 00 days after
notice within which to elect to retain
the land covered by bis entry, or to
rellnoulsb the same and take otber
lauds in lien thereof In manner and
form prescribed by oliloe circular of
February 14. mrj. Issued under said
act, and that should he fail to file bis
formal election alter due notice, suon
failure will be oovered by bis entry,
iu which event the lands will be listed
for relinquishment by the company
without f urthor notioe from the claim

Attorney General Crawford has ren
dered an opinion touching on the
qualiHcdtion of witnesses in swearing
in a voter under the new regulations,
The attorney-general says:
"Replylim to the question request

a person who has lllod ou a home

be a witness to sweat in a vote on

that is, is be a freeholder so as to be
one of the six witnesses required for
that purpose," permit hid to say that

Don't be too generous about loan

for it, or you may find yottrailt minus

did a Dalies family last evening. But
unlay evening about OiliOa young man
called at the door and said he'd like
to borrow the hose to water a lawn
down ou the corner. Doing "easy,"
or nut dreaming of fiaud, the fuiu.ly
allowed hi in to carry it away. LaHt
evening when the hour came for irrl

May W eather.
D. N. llyerlee, local weather obser
ver, reports the observation at flood
Klver for May as follows:
The weather. has been for a great
part of the mouth a little above the
uornial in tcmpcratui. The normal
mean temperature for May Is 5(1 de
grees, while this year the meau tem
perature was 58.33 degrees. The nor
mal mean maximum for May is 07 de
grees, while the mean maximum this
year was 07.07 degrees. The normal
mean minimum, too, is lower, beiug
45 degrees, while the meau minimum
foi this year was 1) degrees.
The preoipitation shows a plus, the
normal precipitation for May being
1.26 iuches, and we receivod 1.52
inches of rainfall.
There was a light frost ou the Itith
which did uo damage that was notice
able. Altogether the mouth has been
very favorable for all crops, including
te berries, for had the weather been
stioh as we are having now tho output
would have been cut very much of
what it now is by reason of the bei

farmers on Orchard prairie, Wash.,
declaies that tbe protpeot foi the ap

has 28 acres in apple, and he expect to
get from 0000 to HOOO boxes.
"Last year tbe worms were so bad
that 1 ouly got 1000 boxes." said he,
"The year before we bad a good crop,
and I bad about 4400 boxes, which
netted 38 cents a box after the cost of

Error In Apple Statistics.
An article which has lately been g3
Ing tbe rounds of tbe papers In lljl
nois purporting to boost tbat state
into tbe nrst place among tbe apple
producing states of tbe Union has
caused no little comment among tbe
fruit people on account of Its exagger
Tbe report Is said to bave been glv
en out by Oeo. Foster, secretary of
tbe Ulluola'tlortloultural society, and
It credits Illinois with having 13,000,-
000 apple trees tbat produce 9,000,000
Dusheis annually, while Kansas has
11,000,000 trees which produoe 8.000,
000 bushels. According to the same
report Missouri has 20,000,000 trees
which yield (3,000,000 bushels and
Michigan has 10,000.000 trees which

viction appeals to be entertained by
most dealeis tbat Mr. Foster has got
his arithmetic warped by subjecting it
to the burning rays of local puUiot-
Acoonllng to the most reliable fig
ores available tbe number o: barrels
of apples produced in Illinois list
year was 525,000. Aliowii g throe
bushels to the barrel it Is easy to see
that the number of bushels Is short of
9,000,000. Accordlug to reliable sla
tittles the estimates applied to other
stul.es are as badly out of line as the
figures having reference to lllinoi

Illmsy that It excites little setlous at

estimated here that, four counties in
