Impobtant Lani> Cask.—The United
States land officers for this district have
jni-t rei-i'iveil from the first aiw.Ntaiit hp.
rotary of the interior department a deci
sion in a cane of more than ordinary
mi'Tf-t to the poople of this section of
the district. The land in question is
located in the Sunnyside region, in tlie
lower end of the county and emhraccs
some of the finest territory in that famous
On the 20th of April, 1838, Lncy I).
Thomaa filed an application to make
desert land entry for all of section 14,
township 11, north of range 20 east, Yak
ima land district, which was refused for
the reason that she tendered an initial
payment of only 2.> cents per acre, while
the local officers demanded M) cents per
acre, claiming that the land was double
minimum in price.
More than one hundred other persons
made similar applications and tender of
payment for different tracts in this land
district at the same time, which were dis
posed of in the same way.
To avoid a multiplicity of aupcals it
was mutually agreed between tlie local
officers and the several applicants that
the question involved should bo settled
by one appeal, and Richard Strobach was
selected as such appellant. It was agreed
that the applications of the other persons
should be held in abeyance to await fur
thurnciion upon the case of Strobach,
and that they should be notified by the
action taken in the case by the local
office and the department. Upon his
appeal, the action of the local officers was
approved and the local decision was
affirmed by the department on August 1,
1830. After such decision was rendered
Mrs. Thomas renewed her application for
the whole of said section and rendered
an initial payment of fifteen cents an
acre. Her application was rejected so far
as it related to the w'»ol the sw' 4 and
these'iof the swl^ of said section, for
which Peter D. Brooke had made home
stead entry on the Bth of said month.
From such rejection by the local office
she appealed to the commissioner, who
affirmed the local decision on the 14th of
February, 1890. A further appeal was
taken to the interior department and, on
the -Jd of June, 1891, a hearing was or
dered to determine the rights of the re
spective claimants and to ascertain all
the facts in relation to the ageement re
ferred to, and the appeal of Strobach.
Brookn made default at the hearing on
December 2, 1891. The local officers
failed to agree as to the proper decision
to be rendered in the cas?, which resulted
in a decision by each, the receiver hold
ing that, on account of the default of
Brooke at the hearing, his entry should
be cancelled and Mrs. Thomas should be
allowed to make desert land entry for the
whole of said section. The register held
that Mrs. Thomas, not having appealed
from the decision rejecting her first appli
cation, the land was subject to entry at
the time Brooke applied for the tract, and
his entry having been properly allowed,
he lost no rights by making default at the
hearing and [hat it should be allowed to
remain intact on the record. Theregister
also held that, since the passage of the
act of March 3. 1891, Mrs. Thomas could
be allowed only to make a desert land
entry for 320 acres and that she must be
required to amend her application accord
ingly. The case was taken to the com
missioner's officer by appeal and, on the
21st of June, 1892, a decision was ren
dered which concluded as follows:
"If then, as I believe, the application
was in ttils case rejected in 1888 fur fail
are to tender the amount of 50 cents per
acre, Mrs. Thomas allowed her right to
lapse by failing to appeal within the
time prescribed by the rules of practice,
the entry of Brooke was properly allowed,
and the rejection of Mrs. Thomas's re
newed application, made subsequent to
such entry, followed as a matter of
course, so far as the land embraced in
Brooke's entry is concerned. She may,
therefore, be allowed to make entry of ho
much of the tract applied for as was not
otherwise disposed of at date of her sec
ond application to enter."
An appeal from such decision carried
the case to the interior department.
Brooke's entry was made when the rec
ord showed the land subject thereto, and
it should remain intact until Mrs. Thom
as showed that she had a superior right
to the same. Until she established such
claim, he was not called upon to defend
his entry. Instead of establishing such
claim, she simply showed that h)ih had
made a prior application to enter such
land, which application was rejected, and
from which judgment she took no ap
The case of John A. S.one presented
questions precisely similar to those in the
case at bar, except as above stated. He
was one of the persons who applied to
make desert land entry at the same time
that Mrs*. Thomas applied, and was a
party to the Strobach agreement. It was
held in that case that by Stone's failure
to appeal from the rejection of his appli
cation, such judgment became final and
a homestead entry thereafter made for a
portion of the land was valid, and his
second application was properly rejected,
so far kh it conflicted with such home
stead entry. The decision of the com
missioner in the case at bar was in
accordance with the ruling of the depart
ment id that case, and the decision ap
pealed from was accordingly affirmed.
Fbuit Übowuu' Convention.—At the
October meeting of the gUt« bwd of
horticulture and in conference with
M«mti I'mil Sihiilzc and (>. G. Chan
dler, of the Northern Pacific Railroad
company, it was decided to call n conven
tion nf the fruit growers of the Pacific
northwest, including Oregon, Idaho, Brit- '
ish Columbia and Washington, together
with traffic managers nf railroad compan
ies and commission merchants to meet
at Spokane the second Wednesday in
Tlie Union Pacific, Northern Pacific ami
Great Northern Railroad companies are
all taking an interest in this convention
and one fare rate will be given to all in
attendance, including each member of a
family, for the round trip on each of their
lines of travel.
The subjects of shipping, fruit pack
ages, fruit packing, varieties and market <
will all be carefully considered with a
view to increase the fruit growing interest
of all the states above mentioned in the
Pacific northwest. A large attendance is
expected, us the meeting is op«m to all

fruit grower or person interested in horti
A Woman's Wrath.—A minister of the
gospel once said, a woman, too, "I think
a domestic cyclone is necessary some
times. Just give everything a good turn
ing over and scattering, it does them
good. The day has gone by when women
are supposed to smile do matter what
happens. But, like a cyclone in Kansas,
let it In' short and to the point, and then
drop the subject. Don't have one all the
time." That is u'«»l advice. If things
cannot possibly be borne, and you are
sure that you have good cause, say what
you think and feel and have dine with it.
Don't nag. If it is understood that you
only talk when you havesomethingtosay,
those with whom you have dealings will
soon learn to listen, as they will discover
it is their loss if they do nut. Of course,
some women can live and always be
smiling, but they are tl.e exceptional
ones. And they are usually the selfish
ones of the world who have things their
own way always as a matter of course. —
A Grkat Watkr Cahal. —Tho following
concerning the great ditch of the Yakima
Irrigating company is given hy one of the
engineers in charge of its construction:
The canal of this company takes water
from the Yakima river about nine miles
below North Yakima at Union gap, and
is to furnish water for irrigating the Sun
nyside region, comprising 78|O00 acres on
the north side of tho river, opjiosite the
reservation. The ditch is to be 75 miles
long, 47 milca of which is now completed,
and is 3!) feet wide at the Ixrttom and 70
feet wide at the top. There have been
250 teams and about tbe same number of
men employed on the job, but work has
been closed down for the season. The
ditch will be finished within the next two
seasons. Settlers are flocking into the
district and are paying lrom $50 to $75
per acre for the lands, with a perpetual
water right included.
Km n's Fhikjjdb.—Thirty-three indict
ments against Ex-Treasurer Adolph Krug
of Seattle end his associates were returned
by the grand Jury as true bills. Krug is
charged in the thirteen indictments with
using public money in a manner not
authorized by law, and in nine with lar
ceny by embezzlement. In five indict
ments Henry Fuhrman, a rich broker, is
made an accessory, which under the law
of the state is the same as the principal.
Fred W. Sander and L M. Griffith are
jointly indicted with him on one count
each and D. T. Denny, a well-known
pioneer, on two counts with L. D. Ross, a
real estate agent, on three counts. Kuhr
man repaid the money he borrowed from
Krug and his bondsmen put up $25,000
to make up the deficit acd Griffith and
Sander also raised considerable sums to
reimburse the city, hoping thereby tj
escape punishment. Krug's shortage was
$125,000 but was all made goud to the
city by his bondsmen and friends.
Takk What Wj Want.—ln regard to
the disposal of the state building and ex
hibits Governor McGraw says the state
university at Seattle, the agricultural col
lege at Pullman, the normal school at
Ellensburgh and the state fair association
at North Yakima are to select from the
exhibit what they desire. The building
and the remainder of the exhibit have
tendered to the Chicago Memorial Art
association, but the acceptance of the gift
depends on whether authority is given
the South Park commissioners by the
people to accept buildings and keep them
in Jackson Park as a fixture. If not ac
cepted the building will be turned over to
the Lumbermen's association and the re
mainder of the exhibits sold for what they
will brine. But the concession made to
the state fair commission is worth all the
others in the aggregate. Its value is be
tween $5000 and $8000.
Orr fob Wahhinoton.—A. I). Charlton,
iscistant general passenger agent of the
Northern Pacific,having returned from the
east, says of the rush for transportation
at the depot in St. Paul: The average
number of people departing each day
since October ~'O is 310. Of these it is
estimated more than 45 per cent are per
sons wbo intend to settle in the northwest
and the remaining 55 per cent are resi
dents of the coast returning from the fair.
All or at least most of the prospective
settlers have purchased tickets for Wash
ington and Oregon and will, without
doubt, locate in one of the two states.
During the last week, the Washington
building was crowded from merning until
night with persons desiring to see the
exhibits and get literature issued by the

9, 1893, to the wife of Jerry Wheeler, a

Kuitor Yakima Hrmin — Since it is
by companion that we appreciate and
understand most things, it strikes me
that our people in Yakiin* county may
think more of their homes if a little com
parison is made with some eastern fruit
During August I had the pleasure of
visiting one of the choicest and moat re
nowned fruit districts in New York
state. I refer to Niagara county—around
Lewistou, down the Niagara river to Lake
Ontario and that vicinity. The gentle
man who showed me around was a well
educated business man and a farmer born
and raise.! in that district. In fact his
grandfather settled on the place in 1804,
and hiii father lived and died on the
place and left it to his children. This
in mi (A. K. Millar) buys and ships about
20,000 barrels of apples yearly and he
knows everybody who raises an apple for
sale within fifty miles and one ran readily
believe that there isn't a better judge of
the fruit business, its profits, and cer
tainties or uncertainties, etc., in that
w hole country.
Hence I give you here some of his
statements substantially in his own
words, as I took them down on the spot.
Referring to a part of his orchard he said :
"My orchard over there of 5<K) Baldwin
trees, about 10 acres, is 20 years old ; it
was planted ..nd cultivated mid -r my
own supervision and is as good an orchard
as there is in the state. The tirst crop
was, three years bro, (WO barrels; two
years ago, TOO barrels. Last year 900
barrels. I should have probably had
1000 barrels last year if it hadn't been for
the excessive rainfall. But it is that if
one year after another."
As we walked around his place and
examined other farms in the vicinity I
noticed a good yield of grapes, although
the fungus rendered many bunches im
perfect ; an immense crop of quinces, and
a fair crop of peas, especially the Keifer
variety ; Bartletts are scarce.
Of an adjoining neighbor's place Mr.
Millar said : "This man set these trees
out 25 years ago. You see they have
been well cared for and it is a fine orch
ard — Baldwins, Spys and Greenings.
There are 20 acres of as good land as
there is in New York state. The first 20
yeurs he didn't get 500 barrels from it
and it hasn't yielded 15,000 barrels since
it was set out. I have bought all the
apples that ever grew on the place."
In this gentleman's opinion there are
10,000 farmers in western New York Btate
who would get out of that country if they
could. But they can't make enough
money on their farms to advertise them
You may depend on it that I have
fired this information at a good many peo
ple in Chicago during the past two
months. I don't refer to the people who
come seeking information about the state,
but to the Smart Aleck class, and there
are lota of them here who come around
to tell us what a God-forsaken, worthless
place all the west is. It is lots of pleas
ure to do theme people up quick enough
and rough enough to make them wish
they hadn't opened their mouths.
Another ueighlior whose place joins
Mr. Millar's had a young orchard of
about l':i;hi trees that was somewhat
weedy. Mr. M. said of it: "That man
couldn't get into his orchard to cultivate
it until the first of June this year, we had
such a wet spring. Then it got so dry
and hard he couldn't cultivate it. That
is abont the way orchards run here in
One other example will probably be
sufficient. Among the large orchards we
visited one contained 225 acres and was
owned by Millard Hopkins. One hund
red acres of it was 20 years-old-apple
trees. Mr. Millar said: "There won't
be five barrels in that whole 100 acres
this year. It didn't have an apple last
year and year before last had only 700
We talked with many apple growers
and tlit y all admitted that the best thing
a man could do who bad an apple orchard
in that country was to give it to some
one if he would cut it down. I wish you
would publish a few well autnenticated
apple yields in Yakima county for say
two and three years past, for the sake of
comparison ami send me a few extra
copies of the paper. E. F. Benson.

In Brooklyn, as in the state, the result
has not been a Democratic defeat and a
Republican victory. New York is still
Democratic, Brooklyn is Democratic. la

If the results of the great political land

more than another, it is that when really
great principles or great economic inter

in lowa, the tariff question undoubtedly
exerted a powerful influence in maintain

York, however, furnishes the most im

It is iiot wholly true that the farmers of

I think It in April 15, 185(1, our com
pany was camped on the Walla Walla
river, »hen umi seventeen of our boys
went to the neighborhood of Wild Hone
creek and found thirteen head of cattle,
two of which were very unruly bull*. We
killed the two bull* that evening and the
same night a meatenger came into camp
and startled us by the announcement that
the commands under Colonel Cornelius
and Colonel James J. Kelly, then camped
in the forks of Snake and Columbia
rivers, were in a starving condition—that
if we could send beef cattle to them to do
so at once. Captain Carson ordered us to
cast lots, and seven men were selected to
drive the eleven head of cattle to the
The only way to reach them was to
swim the Snake river and drive the cattle
through an Indian country. On the
morning of April 16, a number of us went
down to the river, which was about half
a mile across and almost mush ice, where
the Northern Pacific Railroad company's
iron bridge now crosses at A ins worth.
We started the cattle and seven men after
them, and our brave captain and I fol
io ved them. The captain and I got
across safely with the cattle, but the
other men landed on the same side on
which they had started. We got on our
horses and started for the suffering com
mands. Just imagine how cold the snow
water of Snake river is In April, and after
swimming through half a mile of it to
drive a bunch of cattle six miles, with
no clothing but an under shirt and a pair
of drawers, running our horses to keep up
with the cattle, the wind blowing chilly
enough to freeze the shirts on our backs
till they rattled like paste-board—in the
morning to ride back and take the same
dose in a spitting snow storm. But we
did it, as Colonel James Kelly and T. K.
Cornelius, who still live, can testify. That
was the first time I saw Captain Hem
brey. I warned him to be careful, as we
had crossed a trail made spparently by
at least 600 Indians, who had just gone
along toward the Columbia river, about
six miles below the point where the cap
tain's command was croesing, and from
their manoeuvers I thought the Indians
intended to cut the men off aud capture
their horses. As I had feared, the In
diana caught him, and the gallant captain
was immolated upon the altar erected for
the sacrifice of thousands of other intrepid
heroes who interposed their lives to pro
tect their families and save this fair
western land as a heritage to their chil
dren and children's children forever.
Returning to my command, I was de
tailed with twelve or fourteen of my com
panions to convey Samuel Price (bow a
brother-in-law of Senator Mitchell, of
Oregon,) to The Dalles for medical treat
ment, as he was suffering from the moun
Reaching the John Day river, we found
tbat stream very much swollen, and hav
ing no means of crossing, we camped for
the night. The rain descended in tor
rents, and we bent willows and spread
our blankets over them for protection
from the storm.
The ensuing morning we began to con
struct a raft on which to convey the sick
man to the opposite side of the river,
which was deep, wide and swift as a mill
race. On coming out of our impromptu
tent a man named (leer caught his gun
lock on one of the willow poles and the
weapon was discharged, the ball striking
him in the left groin, and coming oat at
We thus bad two invalids on our
hands, and one raft would not bold
tbem. Seeing that immediate action was
necessary, Jeff Miller and myself agreed
to risk our chances with the river and go
to The Dalles for assistance. Plunging
into the stream with our horses, after
some difficulty, we were fortunate enough
to make the other side, and made for
The Dalles, some sixty miles distant. We
bad gone but a short distance when, look
ing at a hill near us, I observed some
thing resembling a cougar or other wild
animal, apparently sitting upon its
haunches, watching us. With a boyish
spirit I told Miller I was going to scars
the animal and see it run. We bad no
guns being unable to swim the river with
tbem, so I rode towards the animal un
armed. Getting within about forty yards
of the supposed cougar, I noticed it dodge
down behind the rocks and, "smelling a
mice." as it were, I turned my borse's
bead in an opposite direction and put
cruel spurs into his flanks, just in time to
bear wild yells issuing from half a score
of dusky throat*. (Jeff Miller is now a
resident of KlickiUt county.)
Sure enough it was "Injuns" and the
"animal" on top of the rock had been
fixed up as a decoy, which came very
near doing what it waft intended to do.
When I overtook my companion our
steeds Mere in a dead run, and then be
gan a race for life. Having no weapons,
we depended entirely upon the speed of
our excellent horses, and the Indians,
recognizing the superiority of oar animals,
sought to cut us off, but by dint of dodg
ing in the canyons and over precipitous
hills, we finally got out of their reach.
(Paddy Miln, late clerk of the Umatilla
Indian reservation, knows also of this
ride) Arriving at The Dalles without
incident, we endeavored to persuade sev
eral different doctors to go to the relief of
our disabled comrades, but the gentlemen
refused to endanger their live* by mak
ing the trip. Fortunately for the sick
men, a wagon train, guarded by troops,
passed in the vicinity of the camp and
they were brought to The Dalles, where,
( am happy to state, they both anally re
In a few days our command was mus
tered out of service, thus ending my ex
perience as an active campaigner against
the wily red men. These incidents can
be recalled by many of my old comrades,
among whom are Peter Leonard, who
was shot in the lef in one of the skirm
ishes of the Indian wars above referred
to, and Charles Stewart, who both now
reside in the city of North Yakima, and
are members of Multnomali camp No. 2,
Indian War Veterans.
Little did I think in those days of the
great future in store for the fertile Yaki
ma valley, or that I would one day settle
down right upon the ground over which
I had trailed the aborigines, in a prosper
ous and growing city. But in 1879, fate
or fortune directed my steps to Golden
dale, in KlickiUt county. Wash., where I
lesided about four years, filling the office
of sheriff in that county, and liniilly drift-
Ing, after a residence of eight years in
Pendleton, Oregon, to the great YakloMj

expect to end my days.

Use the Piblic Lands.—State roads
are a necessity in order to develop Wash
ington. The praaent provisions for the
construction of roads as we have them
are altogether inadequate to the needs of
the rural districts. They simply mean
that if a settler wishes to have a road ho
may build it. What is needed is such
assistance from the state as will enable
settlers to construct a proper system of
roads. The state has no funds specially
provided for this purpose and some must
be obtained. —Buckley Banner.
