MOKE ABOUT OUB LANDS.
, The position taken by W. E. Smythe,
who probably some time before he be
came a great man bad his name spelled
Schmidt by his ancestors, will not snit
the westerner on the question of public
lands. He says that he. denies that the
resources of the western lands should
be considered any more, a portion for
the westerner and his children than of
the easterner. He says he believes that
the-money with which the lands of the
west were reclaimed came from the pro
ceeds of the public domain and the pub
lie domain is the property of the entire
American people. That may be all right,
but be goes on to say that he would
like to give the young man and woman
of Maine and Georgia as good an oppor
tunity "to come into possession of their,
heritage" as they would have if they
lived upon the ground like the young
men of Idaho, Utah and Colorado. It
is called to the attention of the Cali-
fornian who spells his name in such an j
up-to-date manner that the children of
Massachusetts and Pennsylvania came
into their heritage several generations
ago. In point of fact the public lan. Is
are and should be the heritage of brawn
and brain, of the nerve force which will
come and develop them, exploit iLcin,
and make them of value .to the com
munity and the country in which they
are located. ,
We of the west want to see the west
developedj wait to see the., western
country property tended and its indus
tries brought to that condition of Com

laws in the past seem to have been
adopted with a view to retar'itvj the'
growth and development of this ooun

men who will do something with tlie.
lands can get jxmsession of them. Tixes

i TARIFF AND WAGES.
No discussion - of the tariff is com
plete without taking into consideration
the question of labor and its wage.
Can anyone doubt or ' question for
moment that the principal expense of
manufacture, construction, or even of
production is the laborf The revision

That the German laborer is paid far
less per day than his counterpart in
America cannot, ba questioned. The
American consul at Freiburg sends in
formation of a new wage tariff to te
paid masons in that country. He says
that the pay for first class, able ma"
sons for ten hours' work, till August
first, . shall be 10.7 cents per hour
from August first to December 31
10.9 cents, and in 1906, 11.4 cents, and
in 1907, 11.9 cents. For over work and
holiday work an extra 3.57 cents per
hour shall be paid.
A first class mason in this country
would hardly feel infatuated with this
wage scale. Yet it is this rate of wage
payments that we are asked to place in
competition wjth our own well paid
laborers throughout the United States!
Can anyone question that where me
chanies of this character are paid from
a dollar to $1.10 a day that other skilled
labor will reeeive wages accordingly!
In order that we may hav the si

only necessary to tear down our pro

The main reasons why we sell so
much less to Spanish American coun
tries than we buy of them is that we
demand their coffee and rubber and
fruits, because we need them. Then
we refuse to make the goods they want,
to pack them as they want them, and
principal cause of all, to give them
credits of to exceed thirty days. Eng
land, Germany, France and Sweden
make their goods to fit the trade, pack
them according , to Spanish American
demands and give tbem credit for
year. Our tariff has nothing whatever
to do with it. We can also get more
money for our goods AT HOME than
from them. Here is probably the reason
we don't make the goods they want,
pack as they want them, and extend
long credits W insure the sales. And we
are better oil than either Germany,

Repeated Efforts Hare Been Made in
Past Poor Years to Throttle .
m ' J'.-. o
Mr. Bosso Was Originally Sent Here
by Trust, Though He Did Not Know
It, and They ; Threw Him Downl
When He WouldNot Obey Orders.
The fire which destroyed the flax and
flax mill of Eugene' Bosse east of the
asylnm Monday night waa started by
J a hired agent of toe linen trust. Thi i
is the opinion of Mr. Bosse, who re
turned from Chebalis last night, and is
also the opinion 'of Mrs. W. P. Lxird,
who had some experience with 'tho
trust while taking a leading part ;in
the work of the Oregon WomenT'a Flax
Fibre Association a number of years
ago. The circumstances which Mrs.
Lord relates make a very convincing
story, and the conclusion she draws is
apparently the only reasonable one.
Mr. Bosse was so broken1 "up, over hii
loss that he could not discuss his
probable future, but he did not hesi
tate to declare his opinion that trie
fire was set by , a man employed by
eastern manufacturers who do not want
the linen industry establisned in the
Willamette valley. Mr. Bosse was at
Chehalis when his mill and flax burned
but came home yesterday,- when in
formed of bis loss.
"The lact that the linen trust is
anxious to kill the industry in Oregon
should be sufficient to make all the
people of this state determinelhat flax
fibre shall be produced here and manu
factured with linen, twine, -etc.," de
clared Mr. Bosse. 'A shotgun may be
the only means of preventing a repiti
tion of this crime when another crop
has been raised, but. that or some, oth
er effective method should be employed.
The state, should offer a substantial re
ward for the arrest of the person who
set the fires, for Oregon is deeply in
terested in the flax fibre indjistry."
Mrs. Lord tells an Interesting story
of the efforts of the linen trust to
kill the flax industry in Oregon. She
gays - that when the Women's Flax
Fibre Association was formed in the
90 'a agreements were made with a
large number of farmers of this vicin
ity by which they were to raise flax
from seed to be furnished by tile asso
ciation. About the time"-' the agree
ments were completed and the associa
tion was ready to distribute seed, sev
eral men went among the farmers and
induced most of them to break their
agreements. It was 1 represented to
the farmers that the growing 0t flax
would never pay and that they would,
get foul seed" In their 'grain.' 'From the
information that Mrs'. "Lord secured at
the .time, she war convinced that the
linen trust had sent 'agents out to dis
courage the; new industry. ;
But the association succeeded in in
ducing a number of farmers to raise
flax and the crop was harvested. When
an attempt was made to work the flax
at the'brictc mul some one repeatedly
broke the nam so as to destroy thv
power, and the association finally had
to pnt in a steam engine,-although hav
ing been .granted tue free use of the
water power. Other mischief was com
mitted around the mill with the re
sult that the association employed ar
armed guard -'to watch the propertv.

stratea, ana. an sgrui
to set fire to the brick mill, in which
the flax was storetl. The wooden mill
did not burn at the time the brick
mill was fired, and the wooden struc
ture was burned a month later. That
appeared to be the end of the flax in
dustry in Oregon, but Mr. Bosse was
not entirely discouraged. He produced
another crop and had juatharvested it
when an incendiary set fire to it Mon
day night. - '
The fact that flax fibre of a Fuperior
quality can be produced in Oregon
cheaper than elsewhere furnishes a
motive for the destruction of the crop.
This fact, together with the circum
stances above related, are the founda
tion for toe opinion which Mrs. Ixird
entertains, that the fires were all set
at the instance of the linen trust.
WHAT IT DOES
IRRIGATION IN LAIDLAW DIS
TRICT MAKING GREAT PRO
PRESS iN DEVELOPMENT.
Lands Increased Ten Times in value
In Two or Three Years as Effect of
- Opening of Water Ditch Under Carey
Act in Eastern Oregon Arid District.
An.one those visiting in the city yes
terday andtaking in the circus and en
lovinff the ideasant weather of the Wil-
lovinsf tne i
lamette valley was C. F. Smith, super
intendent of ditch construction for the
Columbia Irrigation Company, which is
forwarding the irrigation- project at
Laidlaw, in eastern Oregon. This com
pany has constructed within the past
year nnd a half twenty-five miles of
main ditch, thirty feet wide on the bot
tom and carrying a flow of tour feet
depth of water, and about seventy-five
miles of lateral ditches, making alto
gether about 100 miles of waterway.
They have water now on about 1S.0O0
aeres of what was dry, barren, arid jn-i-iper
lands, and their scheme calculates
the irrigation of 27,0H acrdes. They
take the water from the Tomalow, a
tributary of the Deschutes river.
Work' was begun on this project in
April, 1903, .and the advancement in
that country consonant thereon has !een
wonderful. The district is filling up
with people fully as rapidly as they
an Iks earod for by the irrigation com
pany. The ditch has a very heavy fall,
never lieing less than one half inch to
the rod, and the laterals have a mini
mum flow of one fourth inch to the rod.
Mr. Smith is an enthusiast on the
subject of irrigation, and he believes
in its value to the country. He even
jfoes so far as to say that the Willam
ette valley eoold.be greatly improved if
irrigation were practiced here. In point
f fact, he says it is only necessary to
notice a lawn that is carefully sprink
led or irrigated and one that is not to
see the diflerenc in what can bee done
with water and what is done Without it.
He says in the Laiulaw district two
crops of alfalfa are grown without any
difficulty, and he thinks the same tning
ould be done in the W.llamette valley
if irrigation were practiced. Wheat,
oats and barley are also grown under
irrigation in this district. He savs that
change in that country is one of
the most wonderful things to be seen
in Oregon's development. f
Mr." Smith does not feel particularly
'nfatuated with the government's va
rious irrigation schemes, . feeling that
more is being accomplished and mere
can be accomplished under the Carey
act "by private capital and private par
ties than the government wil be able
to accomplish under its own irrigation !
schemes. The trouble with 'the gov
ernment," said Mr. Smith, "is tnst it
is spending all its money on high triced
engineers, who are making surveys and ,
connter survey, .nd who are not d.nng,
any work at all that Is practical. The ,

It is believed that the jury is inves
tigating today the Siletz reservation
frauds, with a view-to renewing the
indictmeat against .tones. Potter ; iSnd
otheis, which was tlismisHcd becanse of
the faulty wording of the documents A
number of Siletz witnesses are in Port
land who are somewhat familiar wjith
the methods employed by Jones and oth
ers in securing entrymen to file upon
Siletz laads,, and will tell what' they
know to the grand jury. Publisher
Soule of tac Lincoln County Leader, at
Toledo, and Fred Stanton, county com
missioner of Lincoln county, the latter
having done considerable cruising - on
the lands said to have n-en fraudulent

testify iu this case. J. F. Clark, an
Oregon City abstracter, and ii. A.
Heinz, of the same place, are on band

probable tell what lhey learned of the
Jones entries by contests which they
filed against the fraudulent claims. Mr.
Clark is also believed to have acted as
attorney for the contestees of the
claims. Colonel Robert A. Miller, a
Portland land office attorney, will ap
pear to tell what he knows about the
Sietz filings, he having acted as attor

More Albany Men Involved.
In ventilation, is to le made, it ap

certain Albany timber simulators in
acquiring lands near Prineville. .Al
bany men, it is alleged, have succeeded
ire getting title to. timber lands there
by equally doubtful methods as were
used in the Siletz , reserve, the modus
operandi, being almost, identical, the
entrymen agreeing to transfer title to
the lands to the promoters of tho
scheme upon finnl receipt issuing. Kola

THE DEAF EAR
(Portland Freie Pre).
The lack or loss of one of the five
human senses isolates the patieut. thus
afflicted as entirely from the world as
if he were banished to a lone ilani.
What gratification can bring us the (
eiety of our best friends and acquaint
ances if 'their voices do not reach our
ear or if, instead of it, we are only con
scious of an indistinct mnrmurf With
the loss of hearing all joy and pleasure
dies within us, most so in the domestic
relations of life. The songs of our
children sound from their lips, but do
not reach our hearts, their htanks and
prayers are an empty sound. No l.ir,l
sing iaLkn branches for us; no sound nf
the whole nature reaches our ear
feeling of sorrow and . denpair filU our
heart. It makes no difference If ,ur
suffering is due to" an obstinate -,,l.
or to other causes. .
To give our readers' a case, the most
convincing because taken from the cir
cle of our nearest acquaintances, we re
fer t'o Mr. J. J. Kern, who suffered five
years from a deafness so obstinate that
his mind began 'to suffer; Mr. Ki rn
was at that time editor of the 'Nah
richten and Freie Pressc" and the I..hs
of, hearing and the constant noie in
Bis- ears proved a great obstacle to his
business. Dr. Darrin cured - him ten
years ago by clever treatment, and the
evil has never returned.
To Whom It May Concern.
For years my daughter has been deaf,
with almost constant discharge of tie
ears, causing a disagreeable odor. Her
skin had become a brown color from
head to foot I rom constipation and
liver trouble,-also dialxdes. Under Dr.
Darrin's electric and medical treatment
one year ago all her above troubles
have disappeared, and I am ko ph-asc.1
I wish all to know where to be' curcil.
.Will answer all questions by letter or
in person at Jefferson, Oregon.

Paralysis and Epileptic Pits Cured
. Mrs. James Pugh, of She.ld. Oregon,
writes as follows: Dr. Darrin: "You
cured my boy thirteen years uo in
Portland of facial paralysis and epi
leptic fits, lie is now a strong man.
He had only one fit two weeks after
you commenced treating him."
Mr. C,. W. Dunliip, of Halsev, (r
gon, says: " For over twenty years
my wife has hail inflamed eyes and
granulated lids. Dr. Darrin has cured
her.'-' ' . .
Mr.' C. It. DiirTce. of Shaw, Oregon,
reports "his cure of deafness of twenty
three years standing by Dr. Darrin is
complete. Hi daughter, Miss Durfee,
has 'had no recurrence of her dafnes
and granulated eye trouble.
Mrs. Al Hudson, formerly of La
Grande, Oregon, now residing at .W.i
Salmon strfeet, Portland; paralysis or
'one side and diseases peculiar to her
sex, cured nine years ago by Dr. Dar
Mrs. Abbie Wareham, Montavilla,
Oregon, epilepsy twenty-nix years, cur
ed by electricity and medicine ten
years ago and never had a return- of
the symptoms. ' Hundred s of others
might be mentioned who do not wish
their names published. In most cases
only cine visit is required. Owing to
the crowds rushing to see the doctor he
will receive patients from 10 a. m. to 8
p. m. Dr. Darrin remains at the Hotel
Smeede., Eugene; until Oct. 1.
Dr. Damn's terms for treatment are
$.7" a week, or Tn that proportion of
time as the case may require. I he poor
