few years ago than the Mauretania
is like Fulton's steamboat. Each
passing year has marked a far ad
vance in electric car construction.
The Detioit Electric of 1916 ii a modern,
powerful automobile in every sense of tha
word. It is a car with all the speed you .
really need. It is a car with battery capacity
which Ruarantees you greater mileage with
out recharging than you ordinarily use in a
day'i motoring. It is a car with plenty of
power to climb hills and pull through heavy
roads. Yet even while the Detroit Elec
tric has steadily advanced in value the
price has steadily declined through the
economies of greater prod uction.

pnrpose of said acts to such actual set
. Should the leuislation be granted it
would enforce the original terms of the
luiid grant. This policy was favored
by Delegates Hewitt of Linn county,
Pimmick of Clackamas, ( ardwell of
Douglas, and McNary of Marion", four
of the five members composing a sub
committee of the committee on resolu
tions, while R. G. Culvert of Multno
mah, dissented,, standinir in favor of
asking a committee of congress to visit!
tne lands and confer with a committee
of the conference and representatives
of tile railroad co'npanv.
Stand Favored By Bean.
This stand wns taken by Delegates I.
;N. Day of Multnomah, L. E. Bean nf
Lane, and others, and urged by E. P.
Dunne, attorney, who represented the
Southern Pacific. These delegates de
clared the resolution invited litigation
and did not preclude speculation.
It. wns a itrugtile between these two
elements into which the convention re
solved itself before adjournment.
The subcommittee reported to t'c
committee on resolutions which, after
a sensatioVal debate, reported the reso
lution to the conference, where it .was
Governor Heads Committee! .
The committee to confer with repre
sentatives of the railroad, as. provided
iin the niotioi will be Governor Withy
combe, Secretary of State Oleott. State
.Treasurer Kay, W. T. Vawter, chairman
or tne land grant conference, and throe
members of the conference chosen by
the chairman. They will be Delegate's
Bean of Lane county. Garland of Linn
county nnd Spcnce Tif Clackamas coun
ty. The conference adjourned to meet
again at the call of the chairman for
the purpose of considering and aetin'g
upon the report of the committee con
ference with tho railroad representa
tives. Should satisfactory plnns be
evolved in this meeting the resolutions
ailonted tonight will be reconsidered. "
The. set of resolutions adopted by
the conference follow in full:

pany et al'vs. tiie Un'lted States, popu
larly known as the land grant ease, anrt
"Whereas, in said case tho supreme
court has construed the nets or con
gress of the United States, approved
July 25, lSOfl, as amended bv the act

tinuing covenants, ad .
"Whereas, said acts contain condi
tions for sale of lands granted thero

"Whereaes, the said eon'ditions plain
ly Imply an obligation upon the
grantees in said grant to sell said

bring themselves within the conditions
of wiid grant as actual settlers, and
vwiemas, the skid conditions plnin-
by militating greatly nyainst the
growth and development of the state of
"Bo it resolved, that it is the sense
of this conference that the congress ot
the United States slurild enact laws
defining and settling who shall be con
sidered an actual settler under the
terms of said acts, and waat shall be
considered an actual settlement, and re
quiring the grantees under suid act to
perform the terms and conditions of
said act, and sell 'nud dispose of said
lands according to the true intent aud
purpose of said acts to such actual set
tlers, and ('.
"Be it further.1 resolved, that we
are unalterably Opposed to any further
increase or lorest reserves in tho state
of Oregon; and, laslly,
"Bo it resolved, that we urge upon
congress the enactment of legislation
which shall provide;, for the immediate
sale ot said grant (amis iu quantities of
not greater than WO acres to any one
person and to 'actual settlers at a price
not iu excess of 2.!5i) per acre, and to
provide agaiust all fraud in the settle
ment and disposition ul said lands."
The resolutions are to be. transmitted
by Governor WitiiycOmbu in engrossed
form to congress and to tho president
of the" United States and to the sena
tors and representatives of each of the
western states. ' :
Primed from hearing a speech by At
torney V. P. Dunne of the Sunt hern Pa
cific, company, and after an interview
with that attorney, Senator Day of
Multnomah county, came into tho com
mittee room where the committee on
resolutions was wrestling with tho
terms of the resolution as presented by
the subcommittee and proposed to ar
bitrate with the railroad company.
Senator Day said in defense of his plan
that the railroad company was willing
to come half way in the mutter and
that tho state should meet the company,
that tho railroad had rights in the land
mid that a committee should be appoint
ed by the governor to confer with the
railroad in drafting a plan to be pre
sented to congress. Mr. Day said thnt
tho kind otter or tho railroad company
should be accepted.
"That's a h of an offer," ro-
totted Mr. Dimmick. "it comes from
a railroad attorney and is iu keeping
with the Southern Pacific's actions iu
the past and with their 'liberality.' "
Day had' moved that an amendment
cmbndvHig his ideas be appended to the
resolution. Jt was lost oy u vivo oi
.13 to 7. ; ,, . . ,
Mr. ripence. representing the farm
ers' organizutioiis.lho.n nio"ed to strike
out the last paragraph of the resolution
and to insert in' its plaeo the entire
resolution ns introduced bv K. A. ilnr
ris, recommending a trusteeship and
smo by the state to actual settlers and
the proceeds to accrue to Hie irreduc
ible school fund.
This motion' was'likewise lost and the
eonimittne accepted the resolution of
tho subcommittee printed above.
