State Board Bclitvts Old Act Still In Operation. Application han been made to the Htate land board for the purchase of a tract of school land located within the boundaries of on of the proposed rorr-Bt reserves in Eastern Oregon mis land has been withdrawn from sale by Ihe state land board for thf reaHon that If the reserve should be created the land would probably be more valuable for "baHe" than foi nal as school land. The applicant it thla cane contends, however, that the board has no rltsht to refuse to sell any school land when the legal price --" per acre, has been tendered. The state land board, In considering tne question, has dUcovered that there is a defect In the title of th act of the last legislature which makes It doubtful whether the leglsla tur raised the price of school lant" to 2 -m per acre and required the board to Hell at that price. The title of the act refer only to Indemnity land, while the act Itself applies tr lioth. Indemnity end school land The board is Inclined to the opln ion mat go much of the act at applies to school land Is inop erative. and that the old law i still in force on that subject. The old law authorized the board to sel school land at any price not less thar J1.2o per acre. Undr that law the board could withdraw the land froir Kale, or could fix the price at I2.S0 which was Intended by the legisla ture. If the land should be placed. In forest reserve, and could be used as t base. It would be worth fc an acre For that reason purchasers are anx ious to get It. and the state land boarr" ii desirous of holding it. The que tion of law involved will be submit ted to the attorney-general for hif opinion.

The building is lo cated on the southern part of the 620 acre farm owned by the state, anc" not far from the main line of the O It. & N. where it rounds Hutchinsnr Point. The building will have cement floors and will be of a very pleasinr architectural design, and will be usee1 for experimenting in the development of thoroughbred livestock. Crops In Lane County. While there has been much com plaint about unfavorable weather and many farmers have expressed the be lief that crops of all kinds would be light, there la now a change to the al truistic view of the situation In Lane county. Conditions are turning out much better than anybody believed few weeks ago. probably the most elated of all the producers are those who have orchards. Conditions for years past have been more or les discouraging to the horticulturist and only the strong hearted have been able to bear up against the repeated failures of prune crops especially. Smoky Pall Reappears. The pall of smoke which annually visits the Southern Oregon moun tains, screening the Bine-covered ranges from "View and shodowlng the entire SouthprrK Oregoa country, is making its appearancer A few minoi fires have already Vy'n observed in the surrounding lomjtains, though none of them have occurred in the heavily timbered districtsX. A strict er vigilance will be kept this year than usual, and it is not likely that the dreadful fires of last summer will be repeated. Clatakamle-Mist Road Surveyed.

APPROPRIATION SHORT. Money to Pay Indian War .Veterans Has Been Exhausted. The appropriation of $100,000 made by the laat legislature for the payme-nt of the Indian War veterans will all be elha,i8teS, by tne Pment of claims already fl ed, and over 300 claimants must wail until the next legislature aLPr,Pi'ateg money before they VaS et their pay. The unpaid claims will aggregate some $50,000. so that the total amount paid out on this account will be $150,000. As It had become apparent In the last few days that t appropriation would soon be exhaus fd. Secretary af State Dunbar asked he attorney-general for advice aa to the course he should pursue with re ard to the claims that come In the $100,000 has been expended Attorney-General Crawford has re-7- hlfd.han pinion ln whlcn he held hat be secretary of state has no a , 'hority to audit the claims or Isr" e arrants after the appropriation in exhausted. This means that until the eglslature makes another approprTa '.Ion those whose claims are not at Zl0n, fl'.e ,n the office of the sec retary of state will have no lesal Jlalm against the state. A 2398. l the Code Provide hat the secretary of state shall not "sue a warrant except when an . iropriatlon is available for the ly. nent of the same. It also provides that where a claim has been IncurrM n pursuance of authority of law but io appropriation has been made or s made, has been exhausted, the'sed i certificate as evidence that the lalm has been allowed. The atir ley-general holds that the Indian war lalms do not come under any of hese classes and that, therefore the ecretary hag no power to ifssue 'war arits or even certificates. He can do lothing but receive the claims nd :eep them on file until the next leels ature meets, when he will report hem to that body for their consider ttton. The Indian War veterans- claims vere not Incurred ln pursuance of my law of the state of Oregon, but ere Incurred under the ' territorial rovernment. The United States gov rnment assumed all the Iaibilitles of .lt!rritor7 wnen the sta'e was ad ultted, and for that reason the vet rans had no legal claim against the tate. The appropriation Is held herefore. to be the measure of the imount for which the secretary mar mdlt claims. ' New Mine for Gallce Creek.
