Heard Two Heavy Land Con
tests One of Tljem
' V From "Wednesday's Daily.)
Through) the application o a- home
steader, to tiie State Land Board, tor
the state's relinquishment upon a
piece of land, which he ha-d proved up
on and upon -which the state still had
a claim through the land at one time
being classed as mineral base, it was
d I score red that the land board had
been Issuing deeds to swamp lands -or
'several years under a section of Hill's
Annotated Code of Oregon which, had
been repealed by an act of 1S99. "Al
though this section had been repaaled
by the act stated,' It is still carried
among the. statutes In the Bellinger1
and Cotton Code.
The board had been Issuing- deeds to
swamp land under this section ' 'till
along, but the members of the board
stated that it really did not make "any
difference as the board was empower
ed to Issue the deeds anyway, byvir
tue of a standing: rule of the board1,
made several years ago, and was vir
tually a relinquishment of the state's
right to the property, since it could
not be held longer as base. The dis
covery created a little -uneasiness for
a time, but when the rule. was found
the deed was issued as prayed for and
the business of the board Went along
.a though it had n"ver bn disturbed;
A great contest for the possession of
182.94 jacres of tide lands, in sections
i'S and 27, township 9 north, range 2
west, -was settled yesterday by one of
the parties contestant relinquishing
his claim and allowing the deed- there
for to be Issued to the other. The
contestants were Aleck ilrant nd
Martin Foard, both, holding good
claims to tha lantk but . Mr. Grant
upon mature consideration decided to
withdraw, and the deed was yesterday
issued to Mr. Foard. The land is con
sidered valuable, and was purchased
for $3.50 per acre.
Big Land Controversy.
One of the largest land contests that
have come before the State Land
Board for several years was held Tues
day when two group- f applicants
contested! for the right to purchase
7,000 acres of swamp land bordering on
Upper Klamath Lake. The land is
unsurveyed and lies In township 35
south, range 7Va east. It is just south
of the tract of 11.000 acres which was
purchased three or four months ago
by Jesse Carr-Seal and associates.
The conflicting interests in this case
are State Senator A. C. Marst rs and
twenty-five associates, of Roseburg,
on one side, and J.'D. Carr and a num
ber of associates on the other. For
all practical purposes the latter group
represent the Jesse Carr-Sea le Inter
ests. At the hearing today- the Mars,
ters people were represented by M. K.
Pogue. J. C. Moreland ond W, M.
Kaiser. The Scale people were repre
sented by E. P. McCornaek. The land
covers approximately thirteen sections
and as each purchaser can secure but
a half section, there are about twenty
six purchasers in ea4 group of appli
cants. .
The minimum price of swamp land
is 1 an ncre. As the land is not our-.-,
veyexfc the" state has not yet a nerfect
title, and the law requires that appli
cants for such lands shall file with
their application a waiver cf any
right to recover their money if the title
should fall, and also file a map and
county surveyor's notes, by which the
land applied for can be' described.
The Marsters crowd filed the first
set of applications, but failed to file
with them the. waivers and survey
plats. The Seala people filed later ar.d
included what purported to be a proof
of survey made by Deputy County
Surveyor J. W. Ha maker. Later tre
Marsters association completed Its pa
pers by filing waivers, plats, field
notes and1 complete proof of survey.
The Seale interests contend that the
Marsters applications are not entitled
to priority, for the reason that their
papers as originally filed were not com
plete as required by law. The Marsters
people responded by showing that the
affidavit to the proof of survey filed
by the Seale aggregation was defective
since the affidavit purported to be
made by County Surveyor W. T.
-Butcher, while the affidavit was sign
ed by Deputy County Surveyor J. W.
Hamaker. It Is contended that a man
cannot take an oath by deputy. The
Marsters people also filed the affidavit
of County Surveyor W. T. Butcher,
In which that officer says that no sur
vey was ever made of that land by
himself or any of his deputies, except
C. B. Roberts, who was the surveyor
employed by the Marsters people. It
was admitted that Hamaker may have
made some sort of survey, but denied
that he made any legal or accurate
survey or that he set any marks. :
The greatest importance of the con
troversy lies In the fact that this
tract of T.000 acres adjoins the 11.000
ncres already purchased by the Seale
4 people, and controls to a large extent
the channels through which the 11,000
acres must be drained. If the oppos
ing applicants secure the 7,000 acres
the success of the efforts of the Seale
people to drain the 11.000 acres will
, depend largely upon the arrangement
they can make with the purchasers of
the 7,000 acres. v
It Is the Intention of Senator Mars
ters and his associates to drain and
. redraln this tract of 7,000 acres, shoaia
they secure it. -..,-.--

Officers Lewis and Murphy spied a
man dodging across Court street Into
the alley next to the California Bakery
at 2; 30 o'clock yesterday morning, and
it once went in pursuit. The officers
being fleet of foot . soon overtook the
fleeing form, which proved to be Fran!t
Tucker, the notorious ex-convlct. When
caught. Tucker had. a plane In his pos
session and uion being questioned by
the officers admitted having more car
penter tools hid away. He led the way
to the hiding1 place, where his captors
found another plane, a hammer, chisel,
knife and whetstonei - The tools were
undoubtedly stolen by Tucker, although
he claimed them as his own.
It was later found that he had made
an attempt ;to pawn one of the planes
for a drink In a saloon on State street,
but in this he failed. The ex-eonvlct
was locked "up in the city Jail and
booked upon a charge of keeping late
hours. '- In the meantime the police are
making an effort to locate the owner
of the toots, and if they succeed. Tuck
er win no doubt be required to answer
to a more serious charge than the one
for which he is now being held.
This notorious character has given
the police a great deal Of trouble in
the past. A few weeks ago he was
arrested for being-under the influence
of liquor, and was ordered to . leave
the city by Recorder" Judah." Since
that time he had not been seen by the
Salem officers until he made his ap
pearance yesterday morning. . V
Rev. E. Bi Saunders, pastor of the
Seventh Day Baptist church of Shiloh.
New Jersey, was taken suddenly ill
one Saturday, and members of the con
gregation were at a loss for some one
to act as a substitute. The church
was well filled when Miss Mary Dixon.
a popular teacher in the public school
there, walked up to the pulpit and de
livered an 'excellent sernibn. : "So ac
ceptably did" Miss Dixon preach that
her many friends are advising her to
abandon her profession as ' school
teacher and enter the ministry.
WiU Mention KothinkBut Tax
Question In His
r ' , ..-I-".
- - From Wednesday's Dally.)
: That Governor Chamberlain ' - will
confine himself In his message to the
Legislature, whtn it meets in special
session here on December 21. next, to
the treatment of the tax question a'one
can noWjbe stated upon -authority,; te
caus he so I emphatically' declared
yesterday, afternoon when, a series of
leading ouestions were out to him
bearing u inm that subject. ' :
"Under no circumstances, said he,
when asked for his opinion as to
whether the Portage Railway, law
should : be repealed, "will I mention
anything in my message to the" Leg
islature outside of the tax question.
As to other legislation, whether rcc
essary or npt. I will leave, entirely to
the members of that body.. But, so
far as I am concerned, I called them
togetlier to enact remedial legislation
to remedy . the 'defect. In the Phelps
law and I will have nothing whatever
to do with the session or its business
aside from it." . . '
As the Governor of the state of Ore
gon, he. would 'not express .himself one
way or the other upon the portage
railway law, but, as a private cillzen,
he. said that .he did, not hardly Func
tion its repeal nor think it the niost
wise movement to make. It seem,"
he said, "that the people. of that sec
tion over, there demand some relief,
and I am of the opinion that the gov
ernment will never do anything with
the canal project until the state makes
a move to build the portage railway.
This has beea the case in everything
else of a similar nature that5ias come
up and X do not believe that anything
will be done in this, except the state
takes the initiative. Personally, I do
not think the law has served its pur
pose, and I da not see any reison why
it should be repealed."
. Senator A.iO. Marsters. ?t Douglas
county, was ia the city yesterday.
having business before the. State Land
Board. Mr. Marsters is strongly in
favor of the repeal of the portage
railway law and says that the Legis
lature should loso no time in doing it
when it convenes in special session
neit momh.
"If the portage railway Is constructed"-
said he, "it will be. right in the
way of the canal i which the govern
ment proposes to build on ihe .'luni
bia, and I think that 'it would be al
together unnecessary under the circumstances.-
I think that the law has
accomplished Its purpose, in that It
will hurry the government "along with
its work upon the canal, which will
give the people who have been advo
cating the portage railway more ser
vice and satisfaction than the railway.
Besides the money which He repeal of
this law would save the state would
pay for the special session of the Leg
islature a dozen times over. My peo
ple are unanimously In favor of its re
peal, on the ground that it is a need
less and extravagant expenditure of
the state funds and 1 siiall come to
the special session with that as one of
my objects In view.
"There is another law -.vhich will
require the : attention of the special
session, and that s the repeal cr the
amendment of the act whleh regulates
the collection of fees for the reeoding
of deeds of record and other docu
ments of a jpgal nature. There is a
serious? defect in this law and I am in
favor of its repeal r amendment to
cure the defect. I am not sure just
wherein lies the trouble, but I could
tell by looking it up a little. At any
rate, there is a case now pending, in
the circuit court as the result of this
law, and it , will eventually eorn! for
settlement , before the .supreme court.
Snould the supreme court h-Id agafnst
it, there would be more trouble. , and
it would not be adjusted wiitjH the
regular, session of the Legislature,"
: Representative Hansbrouh. ty.no of
Douglas county, who had som busi
ness of a private nature to r.ttpnd to
in this city yesterday, stated tnut he
was also in favor of the repeal of the
portaga .railway . act, on the principal
ground that it would interfere with
the contemplated work of the rovern
ment and . would bi an enormous ex
pense upon the p-ople of the slftev
Whom, he, felt certain, would -feel re
lieved of a great burden upon Its re
peal.;. ' ;" i . :

ASTORIA, Or. Nov. 24. Since Gov
ernor Chamberlain has issued the call
for a specjlaL session of the Legisla
ture and a1 special election In this
county to select a successor to Senator
Fulton in the -State Senate, the politi
cians have : been very busy. The Re
publicans have issued . a call for . a
county convention ..to be held on De
cember 4 and the Democrats will prob
ably nominate by petition, as Its organ.
izalion has.beeji allowed to lapse dur
ing the past few' years, as the opposi
tion to the Republicans has been called
the Citizens' . party.
Talk among1 the Democrats is al
most unanimous for the nominattyn of
Hon. John H. Smith, who is the leader
of that party in Clatsop county. For
the Republican nomination a number
of names are mentioned, the most
prominent !bein.g Dr. Jay Tuttie, W. i
McGregor, Samuel- Elmore, Harrison
Allen, John Hahn, George H. George
and .W. IL Baker. Dr. Jay Tuttie ap
pears to have the' largest following and
will probably be nominated. Senator
Fulton -was elected by 208 majority In
a total vote of 3174. No other Republi
can candidate would have been as
strong under the same ; conditions of
the time; so the Democrats feel that
they will have at least an even chance.

y There is one . industry, now Jn its
infancy that should haw the attention
and the encouragement of the citizens
of Salem and the faimers if the Wil
lamette vailey in general, and that is
the flax industry. Although still in
the. Experimental stage, or the first
stage of development this industry
promises to be eiual if not surpass,
in extent and value-, all other indus
tries in the state of Oregon not ex
cluding the greu hop Industry, which
brings over a million dollars into the
state every year. The flax industry,
if it receives the encouragement and
support that it should, and arrives at
the stage of development which
would require the establishment of a
linen mill iri this . city, or efen any
place in the Willamette valley, it will
do even greater things for the state
than any other two industries com-i
Mr. Bosise has been working faith
fully and earnestly, evi at the fcweri
fice of his own comforts and position,
to secure the' establishment of a linen
mill here, and,; although he has. en
countered some very discouraging set
backs in 4iis endeavors to inake the
movement" a success, iie has at last
found the support he lvas been driv
ing for in the form of the nwessary
financial backing, and the cstallish
ment of scutching mills throughout
the valley and eventually the estab
lishment of a linen mill in this city
seems now virtually assured. But, in
order that a lin-rii mi'l be established,
he mutst flrst ajscertain that it will re
ceive the support that is necessary to
sustain it. He must be certain that
there will be enough flax- raised in
th? valley, f in the neigh borhood of the
location of the mill, to keep it ' con
tinually in operation from one year's
end to another. This part of the guar
antee is up to the fanners of the val
ley, and especially those who live near
Salem, where it is intended that the
linen mill shall be built.
' There is no 'question but that there
is more mony in flax for inahuf.-iciur-ing-
purposes than there is in wheat,
oats, or any other' product of the soil,
with the possible exception of hops,
and it will not take long for the intel
ligent Oregon iarmer to realize' this
fact and take advantage erf" the situa
tion. There are plenty of the farmers
who have experimented "in the raising
of flax and who will testify fas to the
profit In it as compared to that of
other agricultural products. ;
Mr. Bosse has secured theiease of
the Savage farm, two mil- east of
this city for the purpose of putting in
a crop of flax next year, and to erect
a scutching mill thereon. This mill is
now in the last stages of construction
and will be "completed within the next
w?ek or ten days. When it is finished
and the new machinery is installed,
which is being built in this city, Mr.
Bosse intends to' give the plant, a
thorough test, and when iie is: satisfied
that everything is in good working
order he will invite the public Out to
inspect it. This mill will have . fhe
capacity of working up over 1,000
acres of flax per year into fibre and
is so constructed that it may be cn
lurgd at any time when it is found
necwsftry. - " ' . "
This will be the principal mill, but
sMr. JJosse is now negtl.ating, in fact,
Has completed urrangeinents whereby
several of these .mills will le es-tab-lishctl
In the valley. One. of them will
be localetl at Albany, another at Scio,
where -one is already in operation, and
has been for two or three years; one
in Turner, and one either in Gervais
or Woodburn, the location of the lat
ter having not been definitely t'ecided
uion at last rejorts.
Mr. Bosse intends that there' shall
Ik enough ilax raised in those locali
ties to keep each of the mills in con
tinuous operation, and when 'that : is
accomplished he will be really to build
a linen mill In this city. It Is intended
that this mill will be capable' of turn
ing evrt-y kind of product .'that 'Is pos
sible from flax fibre, from linen crash
and coarse binding twine to the t'nwst
of linens and laces. The fact bos bi-en
est a bUshed beyond any doubt, by M r.
Bosse, who Is a tlax expert cf l".ig
exjerlence, thiit -the Oregon grown
fibre, is eual to any produf.M in any
foreign country , not excepting ; Bel
gium or Ireland, and is a more general
purpose product than that produced in
any of tlem. , This fact' alone should
be sufficient to instill into the hearts
of all Oregon people t"ae desire to i see
the industry fully developed so j that
Oregon, could enter into direct jebm
petition with the world In the nianu
factura of flax products. N I f
In xrder to insure the' success of a
linen mill, should It be established in
this valley, Mr. Bosse must have the
assurance that there will be ni jess
than 3,000 acres of flax niised annually,
the amount necessary to keep th4 mill
in perpetuiil operation, and he wijll not
undertake to establish it until hie has
that assurance, for the mill wouid. not
be a paying proposition otherwise.' Mr.
Bosse at first said that he wanted the
farmers f the vicinity of Salem to
put in at least 600 v of t the recefsary
acreage of flax next spring.. but since
there has been so much demandi from
the outside -for seed and such a lack
of demand from ; the Salem farmers,
who should take the most interest 1n
the project and contribute the most
toward its "success, that he has reduced
the. Salem farmers allowance tp 400
bushels, unless a greater Memaiid de

How it Looked to a Statesman
Reporter Yesterday
Did you "foo the sunrise of yesterday
' morning? . Was you up in timet
to wit
ncps the break of da-y over tl

chides ?
If you was not you missed a treat.
It was a -picture, no human' hand with
artificial materials can" ever ilnpr to
paint, or to even imitate with satisfac
tion. . '

.. "Look, love, shat envious streaks

jocund day
Stands tiptoe on the; misty mnuu':iiu
The envious streaks of the approach
ing daylight did at a little past oVKxk
yesterday morning laco thA severing
1 'clouds that hung "above" Jefferson an J
i tlons "even of a lover of old Verona,
j with the skies of Italy bending above
j him, and his heart in tune with th
whisperings of nature.
1,500 j And then when jocund day no longer
j stool tiptoe on the misty mountain
j tops, but the morning light burst forth
S00 t in splendor over the battlenients.of the
! Cascades, there was a color show that
even a Shakespeare could -not adequate
. 750"! ly describe. The deep blue hung down
I over the timbered foothills forming the
j foreground, a blue that was more than
blue, and the receding background of
the uper sky was lighted with a Haul
ing red that was llung in wild aln-
don, painting a red that was more than
j red, and alt the varying colors of the
j rainbow between the indigo of th1 fore
ground and the burning redness of the
lower background. There were colors
and shades of colors and blending cf
tints beyond conception or description.
j It was a siglit that none but the people
I of the Willamette valley are permitted
i to see. Eortunate people!
j And then the tain as it came up out
j of its morning bath in the mists of the
. mountain tops gradually softened the
coloring, until finally the color show
1 of "nature was over, and there wjis nth-
j ing left but a silvery sky, with fleecy
30 I clouds overhanging. The Thanksgiv
ing morning sun, that had created the
scene, wiped It out and replaced it with
clearness and beauty of a perfect
thanksgiving day.
And it was a beautiful Thanksgiving
day.- The air was balmy like spring.
In theTifternoon groups of boys in their
shirt sleeves were playing marbles and
other games in Willson avenue, anl
all the people of the city were on th
streets without wraps, going to nl
coming from the churches i.n-1 nther
places'. -'Not a dro: of ruin to moisten
the daintiest plumes of :l 1 uly's hat.
Not a suspicion of frostlness in the
balmy air to make any but summer
clothing desirable. '
