Portland Telegram, May 20: A
reporter called at Governor Peu
uoyer's residence yesterday after
noon, and found him taking a well
earned rest after his Southern Ore
gon tour. The object of the report
er's call was to secure, If possible, the
governor's answer to the charges re
cently made with reference to the
Bale of indemnity lands of tho state.
"What will you say, governor,
about the chargeB made by Mr. Mc
Donald, of tho land office, in regard
to the side of tho iudemnity lands?"
"The first time," replied the
governor, "that my attention was
called to this matter of the state's
being entitled to lands In lieu of
sections 10 and 30 within Indian
reservations, was about tho first of
September, 188S. A Mr. Williams
came into the state land ofllce, ask
ing me to select certain lands us
lands in lieu of school sections in
the Siletz reservation, and for which
he made the necessary legal ap
plication. I refused to receive his
application on the ground that the
state had no right to lands in lieu of
such sections in reervations. Upon
Investigation, however, I found
that the interior department
had ruled that the state was en
titled to such lieu lauds.
"I then before receiving one single
application,and for tho very purpose
of allowing all
citizens an equal
such lands under
i show to secure
this ruling, caused astatemenl tube

They were as much entitled to the
lands as anyone e se, and when
they made tho proper nppicatiou,
the board under tho law had to sell
them the lauds at $1.25 per acre, the
price fixed by law. So it is readily
seen that the notice I gave to the

"Mr. Thompson In his speech nt
Ashland claimed that a syndicate'
was hiiying up Indemnity school I
lauds in Eastern Oregon at $1.25 and
celling them at $.1.50 to ?5; and that
the state could ju-t as well havo been
paid $5 an acre for the lands. Tho fact
is, that the board is compelled by law
to sell the lauds at 1.25. The charge
as to a syndicate in which the state
board is supposed to bo connected
shows that Mr. Thompson knows
what might bo done, and, measur
