I'pon reaching the opposite i-ide of tho valley, near (he Hopkins place, a terrible cloud of smoke was noticed rising from (he tow n, and some of the part ies wheeled around and drove buck lo towu us fat-t us their teams coul 1 bring them. Tin' cloud of smoke seemed to rio near the center of town. Tho exact location could not be determined up on till Ihe ncene was reached. A large I ile of t rash burning had caused all that excitement. It looked from the other siile of the valley as if tho heart ot the town was on lire. Tho excite ment caused by Unit pile of rubbish burning might be laughed ut were it not for tho fact that it is against the laws of Lukeview to burn trutdi within the tire limits. This is not tho only inconvenience caused by tho burning or trash iu iown, and thero should be a stop put to it. There id a law on tho statute books of Lukeview that is just us im portant to some people as any law we have, audit is being ruthlessly viola tod nearly every day iu the week. It is dangerous Loth to property ami to health, to bum rubbish in towu ami those who uro empowered to en force the la vs should look lo their duty.

The hunters took orders for several iiuurters of bear meat before starting. Mr. HunUius returned to town Tuesday. He did not state his errand, but it is supposed that he came after a warrant for the arrest of the bear, und another bottle of orango cider. They will bring the bear iu alive. Mr .

THE EXAMINER GETS THE FACTS New Law Thought to Only Effect Purchases Since the Act Was Passed. Some weeks ago there was an article published in a number of papers over the state relative to the state refund ing money paid for swamD lands by applicants. The article stated in part: "Through the discovery of a sleeper iu the act of the last legislature gov- " . erning the sale of swamp, tide and otber state lands, settlers upon lands which were patented to the state as swamp under the act of congress of ISO), are barred from securing lepay ment of purchase price from the state at 11 per acre, with interest at 6 per cent, from date of purchase, notwith standing the state's title Jto the land has been canceled by the depart ment of the Interior because of the failure of the state to establish the swampy character of the land. This condition will effect " -s upon several thousand acres 1, who, by reason of the state, 'a ' ne to the land having been canceled by the gen eral government, can neither secure title to their holdings from the state nor get their money hack." J2l . ... ... . . y' me article goes ou wicn a uriei ou tory of the state's swamp lands, for a period of ten years back, and sights the Warner valley case as one affected by the new law. Beiug desirous of getting the straight of the thing and being able to publish the facts, The Examiner wrote Attorney-General Crawford for the facts, and here is his reply: Salem, Oregon, Augusts, 1907. C. O. Metzker .ur. Lakeview Ore. Dear Sir: Yours of the 27th ult., relative to recovering money paid on swamp lands to which the State is unable to give deed, received, aud iu reply thereto permit me to call your atten tion to Section 35 of Chapter 117, Laws of 1907, pab'e 210, which section provides, in substance, that where lands other than tide or overflowed lauds, or unsurveyed or unpatented swamp lauds, have been sold anil the State cannot convey title to the pur chaser, the State Land Board shall repay to the purchaser, his heirs or assigus, such sums as may have been paid to the State thereon. Uuder Sections 310 aud 3311 of Bellinger aud Cotton's Annotated Codes and Statutes of Oregon, which were re pealed by the 1907 law just referred to, repayments could be made where the State failed to give title to swamp lauds whether unpatented or patented to the State, aud just why the excep tion was made when the Board had the law revised iu 1907 I cannot say. However, I am of the opinion that the 1907 law is applicable only to lauds sold after the passage of the Act, aud not to lands sold prior to that time. I am investigating that question now and after we come to a conclusion as to whether it is retro active the Board w ill pass upon claims uow before it. If it is found that the law applies to sales made prior to the passage of the Act then there is no law to refuud inouey puid for tide or overflow, or uusurveyed or unpatented swamp lauds sold to purchasers, eveu though the State cannot give a deed to the lands. The law will only effect sales made prior to the passage of tho Act. Very respectfully yours, A. M. Crawford, Attorney General. StocK Notes. J. J.
