well traiuod, Hud tho play which

Tho ladies are to be congratulated
upon tho splendid success of the alf

tlfty dollars, which will help some to

All of tho changes In tho cabinet
that have been projected have now
been confirmed by tho Senate without
opposition. It is true that there was
one speech made in executive (session
by Senator Scott, cf West Virginia,
rho opposed the confirmation of Mr.
S trans?!, on tho grouuj that wbilo a
merchant in New York be had dodged
the tariir law by undervaluing a great
many of his imported goods, this vio
lation enabling him to undersell his
competitors. The matter, howevre,
was not brought to a vote, and all the
nominations were confirmed without
a division being taken.
There has been one slight hitch iu
the depsrture of Secretary Shaw
whose successor at the Treasury is to
be Postmaster (Jeneral Cortelyou.
The President bad intended to make
this switch on the first of the year,
and Secretary Shaw was agreeable,
liut after some little hesitation and
correspondence, the Senate made all
the nominations effective on the 4th
of next March.
Speaking of the 4th of March, a
good deal of pleasure has been brought
to bear on the President to induce
him to call an extra tesison after that
date to conisder the subject of tariff
revision. He has practically decided,
however, that he will not do so.
Delegations have visited him from
Massachusetts manufacturing districts
and from various poiuts of the West.
He has given them all the same ans
wer, that he is in favor of tarifl re
vision and intends to take the matter
up at the proper time, bijt he has not
yet determined when that will be.
The President will be open to argu
ment on the subject and his decision
is uot yet irrevocable either for or
against tho extra'sessiou but it may
confidently be said that the chances
are against it.
DI4 Not Cet The Money.
lu sneakiun of the statement made
by M. Marks to a Portland Journal
reporter in Ashland last week .regard
ing tho niiniug situation in the Win
dy Hollow district, V. L. Scelling,
who was said to have sold his mining
claim to the Lakevfew Mining and
Milling Co. for $33,000, said tho state
ment was untrue. The Examiner pub
lished tho Interview without comment
because we believed the statement un
true, but did not know who may have
beou repousiblo for the error, whether
the reporter or tho typesetters in tho
Journal office or Mr. Marks.
Such reports do not help tho coun
try, as they are sure to be discredited
some tiiflo or other, aud the bad re
sults from th reaction more than off

of tho sensation.

The State Land Board will ask for
new legislation pertaining to irriga

framed by the board, which
cally repeals the Garey Act:
"First Amend present law,
peal it and enact a new one so it will
provide that when contracting com
panies have received from settlers tbe
amount of their lien, the irrigation
works will become tbe property of
tbe settlers and be turned over to

companies, when making application
for contracts, shall pay to the state 25
cents per acre on the land on which
they desire contract, to constitute a
reclamation fund from which tbe state
shall pay all ezbpense of engineering
examination and inspection andsucb
; other expense as shall be necessary
to see that the law and contracts are
carried out according to specifications
for construction of tbe entire etc.
and further providing a form of con

Inasmuch as three have been bat
three hirrigations projects approved
since the board's last bi-ennial report,
that body believes that the reclama

rigaition will have to wait an indefl
nate time, unless some radical changes
are made in the laws regulating irri
gation and water rights.
