InspiH'tor Heady was neat out to sv

aflldavlt with I'tilteil States District

who hud Informed again t him had
also Inclosed 400 acres of the public

In addition he gave the district at
torney the naniea of 17 other persons
who have inclosed an atfKrvKiite of
:!0,(MH acres of j;overiunent lauds In
Crook, Lake and Grant Count leu.
I'nited States District Attorney
Hall Immediately wrote each of the
offenders, notifying them to remove
their fences. This was tin Deeeiuber
2:1. So far he received answers from
two of these. These have agreed to
obey the law as soon as the weather
permits. In the meantime this man
has t ut his fences every 200 fit't. Mr.
Hall says that about 110,000 to 40,ooo
acres of public domain will thus be
thrown open. The second writer

William A. Hlchards, now the Assist
ant Commissioner of the General

weeks ago by the See re I a ry of the
Interior, and was immediately pre- resolve to ! a Itetther man every

tions lii-twii'll Secretary HiteheiM'k
and (iiiiHiiUsiiii.-- lliiiiiaim have
In-eti strained for a Ion;; time.
Charges have Ix-en preferred against
Harry King and Fred Met.ker. As
sistant chief of the Draughst men's
Division of the Government Land

neglect of duty and the latter with
mismanagement and unsatisfactory
administration of his duties. Metz

was once chief clerk of the Geueral
A Washington dispatch adds that
Mr. Hermann has had the misfortune
to disagree with Attorney Yander
venter of the Interior Department on
several tsrasions. In one of . these
cases a clash over forestry reserve
lanos (Kvupiwl by private owners
Commissioner Hermann was over
ruled by the department, and Con
gress afterward passed a law which
virtually upheld Mr. Hermann and
overruled the department.
The unofficial allegations against
Commissioner Hermann are that he
is not a good executive officer and
that he has lieen lax In his methods.
Fault is found with some of his deci
sions, also, though there has Imhmi
at no time any charge that iiniteach
ed his honesty. Secretary Hitchcock
is said to have stated to friends that
Mr. Hermann has not lieen active
enough In running down timber
thieves and that none of the prosecu
tions under the theft law has been
due to Investigations made by him.
The forest reserve controversy in
volved a decision as to what should
lie given settlers on reserve land In
exchange for this land when they
gave it up to the Government. Com
missioner Hermann held that It was
printer for the settlers and owners of
this land to receive laud In exchange,
but that they should receive it under
the homestead net. Attorney Yan
derventer held, on the other hand,
that these private owners should be
allowed to select any government
land In lieu of their property In the
reservations. Mr. Vanderventer's
views were adopted by the depart
ment. Stock Items.

Pat O'Doyle and Ole Olsen Talk
About New Year Pledge and
Why They Should be Kept
I'at O'Doyle talks to his friend Ota
of our morals for I'M).',.
"A Merry Christina to ye Ole, ami
may yex have (nanny a Happy Xew
Year. It's mesilf that have made
some good resolutions for 1:hi.'I, and.
pleas the Lord, I'll l afther kaplng
t Ii i tit . I always make it a pint to
a id bone-fire nights I kas- me resol
ves. A v course at a wake we must
honor the corpse and say a goixl
word for the man thnts dead and
ilhrinks to his health."
"Yah do, I tank the Swenska iteo
ple ban always tnak resolves on
Christinas sangerf(st, uu ah banmak
me resolves ta bun a braw gossin.
Ah tank dis ban a pnrty glide eoun
thry for morals, but ah tank lady
folk and yantleman's have Itetter
morals than Sweuska and Irish
man's. I tank no ladles and yantle
man's could do bad tings and I tank
if every man's could l like the ladle
and yantleman's of siK-lety av ban
have gude morals."
"Ole, me friend, ye are all wroung
In the slhudy av linmnu nature agin.
We poor dlvilri are not much differ
ent In our morals from thlm society
fellows when wc come to compart!
oursilves in the mathur av morals.
The difference !etween pfwnat ye
call the refined and the poor divils
av society is wan that consists less
In the amount av iniituity distin
guishing the two respectively than
in the method and sthyle uv it. The
civilization av today Is not so much
an improvement in morality as it is
the adoption av more cultivated and
iligant forms av immorality, as
Father Charlie used to say. As peo
ple Itecome civilized they do not nee
cessarily sin less, but they lam tosin
more artistically; they do it in ways
that a tv lees dhisgusting to a culti
vated taste. Min don't have three
wives now, but they git a divorce
from a woman whin they are tired
av her and begob thin git another
wan. In that way they save gitttn
their skulls cracked wid a shillalah.
for whin two or three ould wlmmin
lolke my Bridget put their heads
together dhil a wan could live with

av society gets dhrunk but thin they
do so in their own parlors. Its all a
matter av taste. A downtown
saloon Is very different from an up
town clubrooni different In everj--thlng
excipt In that kind dlvllmunt
which goes on In both, and tan-hups
they are equally bad, only that a
gilded dlvil Is. If onything, worse
than a divil upon which no decora
tion lias liecu put. I wanst heard a
man say that he saw the dlvil and I
believe he did, for lookln glass were
tnvinted Itcfore that."
"Now Ole, the lady who gambles
In Fifth avenue, New York, Is doing
the same thing as the 'tough' who
gambles in a lowdown dive. The
'tough' would not enjoy himself

the nice lady would not lujoygainbl-.
