SAI.KM, April 21. -Another
scheme to 'rob the gullible of their
money. It Is another land fraud
schem." , .
This is the way I. II. Van Winkle,
assistant attorney general, character
ised the scheme of the promoters
who ate 'locating" settlors on the
bed of .Silver lake, in Lake ccrunty.nt
$2 ."in per.
A man by the name of Winters
came up from Portland hst week to
Rto the attorn'ov general about th,i
scheme. Ha .ald the promoters rep
resented, that Silver lake has be.en
dried up, by water which has been
flowing Into the lake, being diverted
for Irrigation purposes, and that pur
sons could sijuat on a HO acre trad
to which ho could later secure title
which would bo worth at least $10,-
I (Assistant Attorney Oonenl Van
Winkle pointed out that the whole
scheme Is pure bunk, as It Is not
known whether the land Is owned by
the government, or by the statu or
! by the riparian owners, atld the best
a squatter could hope for would be n
Juvsiilt'. if the land Is owned by tlie
government n tiintter could "siiat"
