Williumette Valley papers and also
those of Uni)x|iia are calling attention to
the damage that a new weed pest is do
ing to the pastures and ranges of those
sections. This new pest is known as St.
Johnswort or Tipton weed and made its
first appearance at Eola in Polk, from
seed scattered from packing taken from
a crate of crockciv imjiorti-d from Ger
many. This weed jiest grows to a height
of about two feit and has a yellow bios
soul. it completely covers the ground
smothering out all other vegetation and
is so coarse that not even goats will cat
it. The |>est is rapidly spreading and
has made its ap|Mearanee oil the Cascade
mountains ranges, which it bids fair to
overun and ruin. It has not vet made
its appearance in Rogue River Valley,
but it will not be long until it will be
here. Farmers and stockmen should tie
on the lookout for it, for if this pest gets
a foothold in the pastures and ranges of
this Valley it will cause a loss of thousands
of dollars to stockmen in damages to

As soon as the preliminary survey is
completed, the Construction
pany will proceed to build the road, and
intend to let contracts for five or more
sections, in order io expedite the work
as rapidly as possible. Those wishing
to bid for bridge w<<k can also do so
without being compelled to put in bids
for masonry, etc. In accordance with
this plan of construction, there will
probabily be a camp near the Forest
House, one for the mountain work,
another at Fort Jones, and so on where
deemed most beneficial or advisable.
The recognizance made as to altitude,
shown by Mr. Walther, was practically
correct in reference to grade of 116 feet
to the mile.
Unless the Construction Co. should
decide to build its own mill, the con
tracts for ties will lie let to local parties.

A Change of Priests.
Father J. D. Murqhv has been given a
two months vacation by Bishop Christie
and has gone to Portland where he will
spend his vacation until his assignment
which will probably be Eugene. Father
Murphy has been highly successful in his
pastoral work in Jacksonville and there
is a strong bond of fellowship between
himself and his parishoners and be has
been equally successful in making friends
among the citizens, hence his depart
ure it sincerely regretted though his
friends are glad that he is honored with
a promotion to a larger parish.
Farther Murphy is succeeded by Rev.
Father Arthur Lane, who arrived Tues
day and he has been putting in the week
in Jacksonville, Medford and Ashland,
the three towns constituting his parish,
familiarizing himself with Lis work.
Father Lane, is a grandson of General
Joseph Lane, the famous Indian fighter
of pioneer days and for whom Fort Lane
was named, that was built opposite Table
Rock, on Rogue river during the Indian
War of 1855-56, and a son of Lafayette
Lane prominent in Oregon history and a
resident of Roseburg, where Father Lane
was born and raised. Father Lane was
educated at Grand Seminary Montreal,
and he is a polished, refined gentleman
and has the record of being an indefatig
able worker in church affairs. This Sun
day Father Lane will hold services in
Jacksonville at 8.30 a.m. and at Medford
10.30 a. in. He will not hold the usual
evening services in Jacksonville for the
next four weeks owing to so many of the
members of St. Joseph church and of the
choir being out of town on their summer
Interesting Court Decision.
The general land office at Washington
has affirmed the decision of the local
register at Helena, Mont., in holding
that a mineral claimant to government
lands need show only that the indications
are such as to justify a miner in further
expenditure of time and money with
reasonable prospect of developing a pay
mine. The old regulations required that
land should produce mineral in paying
quantities as a present fact.
The decision is most important in the
mineral development of the country as
it gives miners great leeway heretofore
