lrash Pile Causes Alarm.
(,uite a of the residents of
Liikeview hied themselves to the tall
timber last Sunday. 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

Dr. Dewey, Dr. IJoyd and Geo.

country above Paisley last Sunday, to
hunt that big grizzlcy bear that hits
been seen up (here by several people
lately. 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

the outlook for securing its trade in
the future is not encouraging. The
railrouds that are building will not
bring that country any nearer Port

Attorney-General Craw
ford's Opinion.
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
"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
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.
