Notice of Location Indicate That Offi
cials of Northern Pacific arc Busy.
The people living in the neighbor
hood of Thousand Springs are excited
over visions of the Northern Pacific
extending its line to that point and
through the North Side tract.
Notices were posted recently at
Thousand Springs to the effect that the
power site there had been acquired
and filed upon, the notice being signed
by the Northern Pacific or by officials
of that corporation.
The Thousand Springs comprise one
of the most remarkable efforts of na
ture in the scenic line and if it was
possible to preserve the springs as
they are, when railroad facilities are
such that tourists might visit this sec
tion, they would attract Visitors from
all over the world.
But the production of electricity for
lighting cities and turning the wheels
of faetprie» and railroad trains is need
ed more in the development of this ag
ricultural empire called the "North
Side" thon is the beauty spot of the
west, and the power plant will there
fore be built.
The volume of water called Thou
sand Springs will increase as the land
on the North Side is put under ditch
and the waste water finds its way
through the lava crevices to the un
derground current.
The Thousands Spr inga-Jhave been
visited by nume|gE^Puneering par

Alig of the Northern Pacific notices has
added somewhat to the general ex
pectation of a great future for Hager
man and the North Side Tract.

Some preliminary construction work is

work stated that it was the company's
Intention to construct the dam and
power plant during the coming year,
There is a fall of thirty feet at Low
er Salmon Falls and the great volume
of water in the river at this point every
month of the year makes it one of the
most Important power sites in the val
ley of the Snake.
The Importance of the Snake river
from the standpoint of elecriclty, may
be understood when It is considered
that this stream will eventually supply
power snd light anywhere within 860
miles of the various power plants that
will be constructed.—North 81de News.

Withdrawn From Entry Until Prices
Are Adjusted.
An important order has been receiv
ed from Secretary Garfield by Register
Balderston of the Boise land office to
the effect that all entries made under
the timber and stone laws after De
cember 1 will be considered by the de
patrment as null and void. The order
is sweeping and has been issued to all
land districts. It also orders that no
more timber and stone entries can be
made until the government makes the
adjustments which are deemed right
and proper.
The ruling of Secretary Garfield has
not been received. The order to the
local land office was brief and to the
point with the information that the
ruling in full would follow later. This
ruling is being looked for daily and
will be made public as soon as receiv
ed. Its contents are of vital interest
to the northwest country and especial
ly those states including Idaho, Ore
gon and Washington which have gain
ed many bonafide settlers through the
timber and stone law.
Garfield Makes Discovery.
The terms of the timber and stone
act fix the price of timber lands en
tered under it at $2 50 per acre. This
is the minimum price. Secretary Gar
field made the discovery only recently
that the minimum pi ice was not to be
less than $2.50 and that the depart
ment, should it so see fit, could in
crease the price to be charged for the
land, in other words appraise its value.
It is believed, however, that those who
framed the timber and stone law spec
ificly stated $2.50 an acre, believing
that this price was within reach of the
average entryman and that it was not
their intention to place the price at a
prohibitive figure, thus cutting off bon
afide settlers from taking up entries.
The timber lands were thrown open
for entry especially for the benefit
of the settlers and it was for Ajus-pea-'
son that so low a nciee per acre was
set, a small, Vj&ïA-'of which was to be
paid-do'wn and the balance at the time
of proving up.
Conditions Have Changed.
It is evident that Secretary Garfield
as well as the department considers
that conditions have changed since the
placing of the timber and stone act on
the federal statute books and that in
order to prevent corporate interests
and laud grabbers trom cornering the
land it will be necessary to throw
guards around the law, Secretary Gar
field having discovered that the mini
mum price per acre is $2.50 and that
if the department so decides this price
can be raised.
Senator Nelson of Minnesota, is bit
terly opposed to the timber and stone
act and wants to see it stricken from
the statute books. There are numer
ous other Influential legislators ar
rayed against the act but it also has
many supporters.
Sweeping Change.
Secretary Garfield's order of Decem
ber 1, will completely change the man
ner of making entries, and the entry
men, instead of getting his timber land
at a bargain price will probably. In
the future, have to pay something near
'ts market value.
The government Intends to apprisse
a J timber lands and the entryman
will have to pay the appraised value.
Hereafter only the cheaper grades of
public timber land will be sold at $2 50
per acre, the price that formerly ap
plied to lands entered under the tim
ber and stone act. It is understood
that a, rather complicated system of
administration has been adopted by the
interior department for the enforce
ment of the new regulations, and con
siderable red tape will be the rule for
making future entries. It is also be
lieved that the ruling of Secretary
Garfield will drive lumber buyers into
the national reserves where they will
purchase the cheaper grades from the
government instead of buying the tim
ber lands from bonafide entrymen.
