Hoke's Head is Clear.
Sv ire nne for ILilvi- Smith. Had it
nut been i r lus desire in sei tire a ju-t
understanding «if the matter, school
section 10, worth a cool million, near
Tacnma, would have been irrevocably
1.-t to tin school fund of tlie State.
The scheme ran < ti "slick as grease"
until it came t i the he id otiieer of the
Interior Department, and there it was
brought up with a turn as firm
as a clamp of the air brake, and
experts who could not he bought
off were sent out to determine whether
the entry was a fraud or not. It did
not take these gentlemen long to ar
rive at a conclusion. The work has
been very thorough, but prosecuted
without stir or bluster. They sank
over Ttl shafts or tunnels from live to
fifteen feet in depth, from which they
took sand and subjected it to careful
examination. They report that only
one kind of gold was to he found, and
it is extremely tine, llottry, llaky, and
will easily lioat on water when dry.
The largest color found weighed about
.0.5 of a milligramme, or .004 of a cent,
and the smallest colors are almost of
microscopic size. The average size
calculated from the assays is .015 of a
milligramme or .001 of a cent. The
largest yield found in any one pan was
at the rate of eight-tenths of a cent
per cubic yard. The largest yield in
any tunnel was from west gulch,
where gold at the rate of .227 of a
cent was found in five pans."
Probable no case that ever " passed"
the local land office created a greater
surprise or caused a deeper chagrin,
but the people were charitably in
clined to attribute the the action more
to an inability to grasp its true merits
than corruption. It should be borne
in mind that the incumbents were
new to the duties imposed upon them,
and not accustomed to weighing and
sifting such conflicting evidence as
was placed before them, and the Mc-
Bride interest was represented by the
shrewdest of attorneys, skilled in all
the subtleties of land-office procedure.
It is supposed that Mcßride has had
the backing of a combination of land
speculators in this scheme, who have
put up the large sum of money that
has been paid to lawyers and others
during the progress of the contest.
It is well known that he did not pos
sess the capital to fight it alone, even
though the costs might involve no
more than legitimate expenditures.
As the value of the section is still
large, every honest citizen should re
joice in the knowledge that the best
laid schemes of rogues " oft gang
aglee."
GETTING HIS " EVE-TEETH" CUT.—B.
McDermott, the irrepressible Irish
man, who ran the Opera Exchange
and the " Big" saloons in this city for
a time lately has ran across bunco
sharps in Seattle. He makes com
plaint to Prosecuting Attorney Hastie
that a man wearing the odd cognomen
of Smith had induced him to purchase
some lots in the " City of Destiny"
that were under water and in a dif
ferent place from where he had been
shown. Mr. Hastie said his only al
ternative was a suit for damages, but
as Smith's worldly possession are rep
resented by the unknown quantity x,
or rather the minus sign —, the irre
pressible Mick will probably have to
charge up the transaction to his expe
rience account.

SHIPMENT, OF PLUMS. —The ship
ment of plums to the East from Ore
gon has already begun. The fruit is
packed in light boxes and four of
them constitute a crate. The latter
are carefully arranged in the car which
is supplied with five tons of ice. 50,-
000 pounds is the capacity of the car.
Each plum is carefully wrapped in
paper and packed in boxes which hold
about half a bushel. The packing
bouses present an animated scene,
with scores of women, boys and girls
packing the fruit as it is brought in
by the wagon load.

How THE MILLIONAIRE TRAVELS.—
The second largest yacht in the world
paid a visit to Tacoma this week, Yan
derbilt's lloating palace exceeding her
in length only a couple of feet. Her
name is the Eleanor, and she is owned
by W. A. Slater, a man of wealth and
leisure. She is on a trip around the
world, and has on board the family of
her owner and a few invited guests.
She will go from Tacoma to Sitka,
and then back to San Francisco, and
thence through the Straits of Magel
lan home. Her hull cost $250,000,
and her furnishings about SIOO,OOO
more. She was named after the
owner's daughter and launched a few
months before she started on her trip,
last October. Her engines are 1,050
house power and of the tripple-expan
sion type. Her coal bunkers hold 350
tons and will drive the craft 5,000
miles at 15 knots an hour. She is
fitted up regardless of expense, and
has all the appliances that conduce to
the comfort of guests. She carries a
crew of 50 men, and is bark-rigged
with an area of 13,225 feet of canvass
She is a veritable life-boat, with five
solid water-tight bulkheads extending
from the bottom to the upper deck.
She is provided with incandescent
lamps and powerful search-lights.
This shows how some men can take
their ease while thousands know not
where they may obtain their next
meal or where their weary heads will
find a resting place when night draws
her sable curtains around.
ANOTHER INUNDATION.—A terrible
cloud-burst at Casper, Wyoming, yes
terday, on the summit of the moun
tain of that name, found outlet
through Garden creek, on which a
pleasure resort was located, the build
ings of which were all swept away, as
well as the tents of campers all along
the stream. A volume of water 40
feet high and 30 rods wide must have
passed through a narrow defile about
two miles from the mountain, judging
from the water-marks. Three lives
were lost. To illustrate the force of
the flood it is noted that stones weigh
ing 50 tons were torn from the moun
tain side and carried down the stream-
AN UNFORTUNATE COUPLE.—A short
time ago an account of a marriage be
tween two patients just discharged
from the asylum for the insane at
Medical Lake, was going the rounds of
the press, the principals being a Mr.
Boggs and a Mrs. Lammerhart. The
malady in either case was not sup
posed to be permanent or dangerous,
or a recurrence at all probable, and it
was hoped that their marriage might
lead to a contented and peaceful life.
It turns out, however, that both have
suffered a relapse and were arrested a
few days ago at Elberton and will
have to be recommitted to the hos
pital for the insaoe.
THE Northern Pacific Railroad com
pany is building at Tacoma, the larg
est coal conveyer in the world. The
principle upon which it works is the
same that has long been used in ele
vators to handle wheat, and consists
of bins attached to an endless iron
matting or chain, which carries the
bius or conveyors from the bunker on
shore, over the water to a stationary
fixture, at which the ships will drop
anchor and the coal be dumped from
the bins into the hold. This improve
ment will cost when completed $140,-

THE U. S. Court in Portland (Judge

Washimitux, July 2(1, 18'J5.
Secretary Carlisle told the Louisiana
senators and liepresentativu Meyer,
w ho called to see him to protest against
the right of the Comptroller to decide
whether the money appropriated bv
Congress to pay sugar bounties should
he withheld, that he had no authority
over the Comptroller, not even the
power of removal, which is vested in
President alone. The Louisianiaus
I argued that the Comptroller had 110
i legal authority to question the con
| stitutionality of an act of Congress;
j that lie was merely charged with the
j construction of the laws as he found
{them, and that if he had the power <
claimed he would he paramount to
Congress. Secretary Carlisle said it
was true that the Comptroller might
by the arbitrary exercise of his au
, thoritv greatly embarrass the govern
ment, hut he could see no present
remedy. Congress had conferred this
great authority upon the Comptroller,
and the Secretary of the Teasttry hail
no right to question his acts. The
President, of course, could remove a
Comptroller, but he could not direct or
review his acts. There seems little
doubt that Comptroller llowlew has
the law on his side, although the right
to construe the conslitutiouulity of
. acts of Congress appropriating money
has not been exercised by a Comptroller
for years. He says he is only doing
his duty, in view of the decision of the
i Court of Appeals of the District of
• Columbia, that the sugar bounty law
was unconstitutional, in asking that
1 arguments he presented showing the
' constitutionality of the act of the last
1 Congress appropriating money for
. sugar bounties before he approves the
payment of any money under that act.
' August 7 has been set for the hearing
of the arguments, and, as more than
1 $5,000,000 is at stake an imposing
' array of legal tulent is expected to take

The secret is out. Mr. Benjamin
Harrison need not pretend that he is
not an out-and-out candidate for that
nomination any longer. There are
people in Washington who have seen
letters from Col. John C. New direct
ing how certain wires should be pulled
in order to increase Mr. Harrison's
chances. Besides, it has leaked out
that a near relative of " Lige" Halfonl,
who used to be Mr. Harrison's private
Secretary, is quietly running a Harri
son literary bureau in Washington.
It is ridiculous to say that these things
are being done without the knowledge
or consent of Mr. Harrison. Col. New
managed his last canvass and is as
near to being in his confidence as he
ever allows anybody to get. Men who
are known to be working for Harrison
are not the sort to be wasting their
time without an explicit understand
ing. Among these men are ex-Senator
Sewell, of N. J., and Senator Elkins, of
W. Va. Mr. Harrison wants that
nomination and be is going to do his
level best to get it.
In response to requests from the U.
S. Consul at Panama and the New
York officers of the Panama railroad,
Secretary Herbert has ordered a ship
to Panama. There are two' sources
which from trouble is feared. There is a
labor strike now on hand, and Ecuador
is said to be about to invade Columbia.
We have a treaty with Columbia which
gives the United Slates the right to
maintain free communication over the
Panama railroad whenever Columbia
fails to do so. Of course Secretary
Herbert's instructions have not been
made public, but it is almost certain
that they include keeping of the
Panama railroad open, as well as pro
tecting American interests in general.
Ex-Senator Wade Hampton, of
South Carolina, now Railroad Commis
sioner, says he was misrepresented by
the Southern paper which quoted him
as slating that he had personal knowl
edge of President Cleveland's intention
to be a candidate for a third term.
Speaking of this matter, Gen. Hampton
said : " I believe I did say that if the
different parties took to splitting up
and a half dozen candidates took the
field a lot of the conservative gold.bug
Democrats would want to run
President Cleveland for a third term
and that a big per cent, among the Re
publicans would heartily join them.
As a matter of fact, I haven't the
slightest reason for believing from any
thing President Cleveland ever said or
did that he is or will be a candidate for
a third term. On the other hand, I
have no idea that he is thinking about
it or would consent to run for another
nomination." This whole third term
flurry, which has lately taken on new
life, is based upon misrepresentations
which in most cases have been in
tentionally made by enemies of Presi
dent Cleveland, and which have been
spread and added to by editors who
find that a more congenial subject than
a discussion of the live issues of the
day. While all things are possible,
there is not the slightest probability
that President Cleveland's name will
go before the next Democratic Na
tional convention, either with or with
out his consent. DEM.
Weekly Weather-Crop Bulletin.
The Seattle Weather Bureau fur
nishes the STANDARD with the follow
ing report for the week ending July
■29 th:
WESTERN SECTION.
The temperature during the past
week appears to have about the nor
mal for this time of year, averaging G4
at Seattle, and was quite uniform.
The highest temperature occurred on
the 28th and the lowest on the 20th.
A very light frost was noticed in some
localities on the night of 25th and
26th; it did not do any damage to
speak of. The week was one of dry
weather, broken only by sprinkles of
rain on the 25th, and a light shower
on the night of the 2Sth.
The need of rain is beginuing to be
seriously felt, the showers that have
occurred being insufficient to even lay
the dust. Though the dry weather
has been excellent for hay-making,
this fact has been offset by the drying
up of the pastures, in which feed is
now reported to be scanty.
The oats in Skagit and other coun
ties is standing it well, but the drought
has rather set back potatoes, except
on the bottom lands. Other vegeta
bles, and also fruit, would be greatly
benefitted by rain.
Haying now being practically over,
harvesting of grain will become gen
eral this week. Considerable barley
land some oats has already teen cut.
Hie barley yield is fair to good, some
winter sown going 10 bushels to the
j acre. Oats will he short on the up
lands, while on the bottoms it will he
. heavy, (train is most promising in
bkagit, King, Pierce and Thurston
| counties.
Hops is now in the burr, and gener
ally doing well. Lice are not so
j troublesome this year as formerly.
Fruit conditions have not changed
much from last week. In King,
Pierce and Clarke counties, pears,
peaches and plums are ripening, also
lied Astrakan apples. The yield of
prunes and plums will he very good.
Samples of peaches grown in King
I county near O'Brien, by Mr. Greenleaf,
are large, averaging 8 inches in cir
cumference, of beautiful color, and de
lightful llavor, reminding one of the
luscious clingstones of Utah or Ten
nessee. No one after sampling them
j would ever maintain that peaches can
i not he grown successfully in Western
j Washington.
EAS'IKKN SECTION.
| The weather, though hot and dry,
, has been favorable for harvesting. The
j temperature reached 101 in the shade
jin Walla Walla county on the 2.'fd.
There was no rain until the end of the
week when scattered showers occurred.
In general the week was not favorable
to growth, though in irrigated districts
all crops progressed favorably. The al
falfa is splendid, and has an uuconimon
amount of bloom, which the bees are
making most of. In 'Kittitas county
the hay crop is a good average and
about all in. Harvest has commenced
and the crop is expected fairly good.
Unirrigated lands have exceeded all
expectations in West Kittitas valley.
In Walla Walla county harvesting is
well under way. There is an average
yield of fall sown grain but the spring
sown is badly damaged, and will not he
cut. In Columbia county heading
and threshing is now under way.
Barley is light weight, running SO to 90
lbs. to the sack; it will not be over
one-lialf crop. Spring wheat will run
front one-third to one-half crop. Fail
wheat, 80 per cent, of a crop. In
Garfield county harvest is in progress.
; Wheat will yield about one-half crop.
Barley only a fair three-fourths. Hay
is fair.
In Whitman county wheat in ex
posed localities is being injured, and
will make the general crop one point
less than last week. Barley will ho
cut this week. The fruit prospect is
good.
o
Spokane Co.—lt lias been a good
week for grain. Farmers are cutting
more grain for liay than they expect
ed. Crop shorter than was expected
on account of smut, which was never
so bad here before. Fruit is all right.
Gardens need rain.
Lincoln Co.—Crops are drying up.
Heading barley begun on 29th. About
half a orop expected. Potatoes are
not doing well. The range is all hare
and stock will have to he fed.
Douglas Co.—Haying in full blast.
Heading will he general by August Ist.
The crop will be good as last year, and
better grade.
In Adams county, barley is mostly
harvested, wheat haymaking In pro
gress. Harvesting began all over the
county on 29th. Weather good for
corn, which is growing finely. Pota
toes are doing well; also fruit.
Stevens Co.—The hay crop is short,
especially timothy. Uardeus are in
need of rain, and potatoes will be a
short crop unless some rain falls soon.
Okanogan Co.—Light showers have
been of great benefit to fruit and corn.
Peaches and apricots are ripe.
PROSECUTED FOR THEIR FAITII.—
Notwithstanding our government is
founded upon the widest toleration of
religious belief, eight consccntious
Seventh-day Adventists were con
demned to serve term of from seventy
five to ninety days in the county jail
at Dayton, Tennessee, last month, for
the offense of doing common labor on
Sunday. These men were compelled
fo work in the chain-gang, as com
mon malefactors, for a no greater of
feuse than the violation of a statute
passed by a State whose constitution
professes to guarantee the free enjoy
ment of religious sentiment and the
right to worship God according to the
dictates of conscience.
THE reported death of Susan B.
Anthony at Lakeside, Ohio, Friday,
was premature. She suffered an at
tack of heart failure, and was unable
to fill an appointment for Rev. Anna
Shaw, but she subsequently raillied,

Miss Anthony is 75 years of age.
THE Portland Sun, a daily and week,
ly newspaper, started in Portland last
October, by an association of printers,
has gone the way of all earthly crea
tions. It was Populist iu its tenden

to the waning power of that combina

Now that the g. o. p. is seeking a
place for holding the National Con

lately sunk in a collision with with the
British taukship Dutfield, oil' Falk
stone, England, and seven of the
crew are missing. The Cleveland was
from the Mediterranean.
SAN FRANCISCO seems to be held in
favor by the National Republican
Committee for the next National
Convention of that party. It will
meet next December to decide the
time and place.
THE fruit crop in California this
year will not be up to the average in
quantity, but of superior quality. It
is expected, therefore, that as a money
maker it will be equal to previous sea
sons.

ported that the type and press will be
removed to North Yakima and used
for printing a daily newspaper.
PROTECTION OF SCHOOL LANDS
Some Suggestions by (be State Land
Commission.
The State Land Commission has ad
dressed to the county school superin
tendents of this State the following
letter, prepared by commissioner Brain
erd:
" Reports having come to the hoard
of state land commissioners front
superintendents of schools, that
1. They have heard reports of tres
pass on school lands and therefore ask
instructions as to their duties iti the
matter, and
2. That they have themselves author
ized persons to cut tire wood for them
selves or for school district use:
Therefore the board of state land
commissioners, with the endorsement
and approval of the honorable superin
tendent of school instruction, desire to
call your attention to the law, and to
the following facts, and to ask your
hearty and cheerful co-operation with
us, and that you will call for the help
of school district officers and teachers.
As you are well aware the income of
the schcolsis derived from the sale
and lease of school lands. With the
exception of lands in the wheat belt of
of eastern Washington the chief value
of school lands in this State is in the
timbered lands of Western Washing
ton.
During territorial days some of the
best school lands in the State has been
logged off. In the absence of forestry
guardianship of any kind in the State,
the practice of logging on school lands
has undoubtedly coutinned and is still
going on, and are certain that petty
trespass on the part of sellers is
practiced by the very men who owe
most to the common schools and who
should he the most vigilant protectors
of all that would he aid to the school
fund out of which their children are
beiug and will continue to he educated.
At the last session of the legislature
an act was passed vesting the manage
ment, lease and disposition of the
slate's lands in the board of state land
commissioners, at Olympia.
It is perhaps well to state here for
your information that no persons what
ever are properly concerned with school
or other lands except the state board of
land commissioners and their duly au
thorized employes and subordinates.
The land act provides (session laws
1895, chapter 178, sections, 51, 99, 101)
that any person, tirni, corporation or
association cutting or removing or
causing to he removed any timber
growing upon any state lands, or manu
facturing the same into logs, holts,
shingles, lumber or other articles for
domestic use or commerce shall be li
able to the State for treble the value of
the timber or articles so cut or re
moved, and shall forfeit all interest in
and to the article into which the tim
ber is manufactured ; further that such
persons, upon conviction shall he pun
ished by fine or imprisonment, or by
both, not exceeding one year in jail
and SI,OOO. Further it is the duty of
the state board of land commissioners
to investigate all cases of trespass and
damage on school lands and to prose
cute the same.
We therefore call on you as good
patriotic citizens, charged with the
most serious and delicate responsibility,
that of care of the education of the
children of the State, that you will act
as the volunteer protectors of that
upon which the education of the
children chiefly depends, to-wit; the
land which the state holds in trust for
them. Let your school directors know,
and through them let the children
know, that no one has a right to rob
them of their heritage, as some
miscreants are now doing. It may
seem trifling to cut cord wood, for ex
ample, from school land, but there are
sections which are nearly denuded of
timber by such procedure to the States'
loss. Let them know that the legal
status of every person going on a school
section, using it, or removing anything
from it, should lie carefully inquired
into, and if it does not clearly appear
that such persons are bona fide losses
or purchasers, they should be reported
at once to the sta|| board with a state
ment of names, mtes and places and
of witnesses willing to testify who will
enable the State board properly to in
vestigate and prosecute.
If we shall receive your hearty co
operation the result should be to save
to the state school fund many
thousands of dollars."

Wheat is now worth at Pullman 35
cents in bulk, and 38 cents sacked f. o.
b. cars. Most of it is handled in bulk
for shipment to Eastern markets, al
though not much is yet in sight. The
crop around Pullman is estimated to
have been damaged about 15 per cent.
A little son of J. W. McAulifle, on
the upper waters of the Wynatchee,
was bitten by a rattlesnake, last week,
but medical aid being soou obtained,
an antidote was applied and tho child's
life saved. It is a matter of much
I
gratification that there arc no vrno
mons reptiles on this side of the Cas
cade range of mountains.
Phillip A. Sauter, a German tailor,
at Port Angeles, committed suicide
i Saturday night by shooting himself in
the mouth with a revolver. He had
lately been sold out for debt, and this
Jit seems so discouraged him that he
j committed the rash act in a fit of dis
| pair.
Ihe Spokane Tim** savs that a
well-known cattle-buyer was rescueil
|by a troop of United States cavalry,
at tort Spokane Saturday afternoon,
just as a crowd of Indians was prepar
ing to string him up to a tree. The
Indians claimed the man had outraged
a 12-year-old girl of the tribe.
A little daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
lelix Gravell, of Cowlitz prairie, was
playing near a fire in the yard of Mrs.
Van Wingerden, on the Ostrauder,
one day last week, her clothing
caught fire, and before the flames
could be put out, she was so badly
burned that death resulted a few
hours later.
On July 4, at Custer, the 4-year-old
daughter of John Atkins, while play
ing with firecrackers, ignited her light
cotton dress, which was completely
burned oil' her before relief came from
her aunt, Mrs. James lSrown, who was
badly burned herself, in saxing the
child. Strange to say, the child was
almost uninjured.
The directors of the penitentiary de
cided at a recent meeting to hold sacks
for farmers, providing 20 per cent of
the purchase money is paid down. By
this farmers can now secure their sacks
by placing their requisitions and pay
ing that amount and save themselves
front any worry concerning a shortage
when tlie sacks are needed.
The two creameries on Gray's Har
bor have driven California dairy pro
ducts entirely out of the markets of
that section. Representatives of a
large San Francisco wholesale butter
establishment visited Gray's Harbor re
cently, and were unable to secure a
single order, where immense amounts
of goods had been formerly sold.
Cheap wheat has driven the Palouse
farmers into hog-raising extensively.
It is estimated that iu Whatcom coun
ty alone there are 100,000 hogs, Bome
are afraid they will regret the step if
pork declines in price, as it threatens
to do. All hogs would be as bad as
all wheat. Diversified farming in
cludes both products in moderation.
Miss Ina S. Robertson, formerly
principal of the Waitsburg academy,
has spent the past nine months in the
East, in the interests of the academy,
and has secured pledges amounting to
$20,900, $15,000 of which is available
at once. All the preliminaries will be
arranged, and building will begin early
in the spring. A large brick academy
building will be erected, also a dormi
tory and boarding-house, and other
needed buildings. All will be of brick,
and will contain every modern appli
ance aud convenience.
John Dixon, who represents the
Dixon claimants for the Indian depre
dations in the Malheur outbreak of
1878, was in Seattle last week for the
purpose of securing certain atlidavits
from Major W. V. Rinehart tending
to establish his claim at Washington
City. Congressman Binger Hermann
has the matter in charge, and has
worked on the case during his whole
Congressional career of nearly 10
years, but thus far has not been suc
cessful. Major Rinehart was Indian
agent at the Malheur reservation from
July 1, 1876, to September 1, 1882,
and during his term he passed upon
many claims, every one of which has
been paid. The Dixon claim he did
not pass upon, and as it amounts
to $50,000, it is quite difficult to se
cure. It has been divided into two
parts, of $20,000 and $50,000 respec
tively.
