On June Ist last, the law reducing
the legal rate of interest to 8 per cent
took affect, and it has since been a
mooted question whether outstanding
warrants, state or county, would con
tinue to draw the old rate of ten per
cent, until paid. Home decisions have
been made by lower courts that the new
rate prevails on all warrants after June
7th, but the question lias not
reached the supreme court as yet.

The Olympia Standard, Tacoma
News, Seattle Telegraph and other
democratic papers over the state lay
down the proposition, which the
Journal lias suggested is open to John
Mcßeavy, anent the Capital Com
mission. The Standard says: “The
only resoure left for Mr. Mcßeavy is
to demand of Gov. McGraw a state
ment of just what acts of bis
institute “malfeasance’ or “miscon
duct.'’ He may decline to give them
but fair play is regarded as a jewel by
the people, and a failure to substanti
ate the charge will stamp it at one as
frivolous and malicious.”
An appropriation bill is now before
congress lor the government tests of
the different timbers of the United
States, and this state is interested
because the quality of its timber will
be demonstrated by official tests, as it
has by the experiments of private in
dividuals. i 1 the bill passes, through
tests will be made, including more
than 1000 specimens of each timber,
there is no doubt that Washington’s
fir and other timber has been under
rated, because generally little known
throughout the Eastern States, and
largo contractors everywhere will look
into its value for strength and durabi

The Ledger says: The lumber and
shingle shipments were over four times
as great during February as they were
during last September. By a coinci
dence the shipments during January
and February were exactly the same,
being 811 cars shipped out of the state
over the Northern Pacific each month.
The shipments daring September were
IDS cars. In February 437 cars of
shingles were shipped and 374 cars of
lumber. Of these, Missouri tool; 92
cars of shingles and 33 of lumber,
Illinois S3 cars of shingles and 18 cars
of lumber. The apportionment of
lumber and shipments during January
was 522 cars of shingles and 259 cars
1 he Joi knal does not desire to en
join any other paper from publishing
any matters whatever, but simply to
prevent the ring's outfit from stealing
pay for any advertising done in viola
tion of our contract. This was suc
cessful. If the law can be construed
to prevent the County from protect
ing its contracts and forcing the offi
cers to abide by them—then it is nec
essary for this paper to “fight its own
battles.” The proposition is quite
plain; Both local papers bid to pub
lish road notices without charge to
the County, the Journal got the
contract, but the “bumling” got,the
road notices, aud put in bills for .$3
each for this publication. These are
the bills refused. This shows the
caliber of the outfit.
"OLID RELIABLE STORE” -of- WM. H. ASMTJS, Proprietor.
It has hoen stated recently that the
Northern Pacific Railroad Company
had patents to a large amount of land
in the indemnity heit between Tacoma
From H. M. Sutton, who was in
Olympia last week, and spent some
time at the land office, we learn that
much of the land to which patents
have been issued is in Chehalis county.
In tlie indemnity strip patents have
issued to over 78,000 acres, perhaps
00,000 acres of which is in this county.
Within the strip known as the origi
nal grant the number of acres for
which patents have recently been is
sued, aggregate no less than 107,000
distributed throughout the several
There is something very strange
about this proceeding. The patents
in question bear date of July J, 1892.
Until within perhaps ninety days the
land commissioner, in correspondence
with the Settler’s League in this
county, has not only written them
words of encouragement in their ef
forts to get justice, but has positively
declared that no patents to this dis
puted land had ever been issued to
the railroad company.
Why this double dealing with the
people, and why was the existence of
those patents denied, while settlers
were wearing their lives away improv
ing lands already patented? Within
a few months applications for filing on
some of this very land that it is now
learned was patented, were suspended
“pending action of the secretary of
the interior in the matter of the selec
tion of this land by the N. P. R. 11.
Co. as indemnity land.”
The idea of waiting for action by
the department to decide to whom
the land belonged, when they had
already deeded it to the railroad.
There is something very, very
strange about this whole business!
The settlers must not despair, for we
believe they will yet get this land, and
only the supreme court of the United
States will settle the matter definite
There are four mints in operation
in the United States, and their pro
duct is marked as follows: San Fran
cisco, “S”; Carson City, “C C”; New
Orleans, “0”. Coins struck at Phila
delphia bear no mint mark.
Two farmers in the Lake Tapps re
gion, Pierce County, were shot, one
instantly killed, by two of the Orcutt
family last week. The shooting was
the termination of a feud, which be
gan over the location of a County
road, and other neighborhood prob
lems. It is much safer and better all
around for farmers to pull together
and “give and take” with each other,
than to live in a unneighborhborly
quarrel. The murderers have been
bound over to await trial.
Arrangements are being made to
start a linseed oil factory in Tacoma,
to grind the output of llax fields in
Idaho, as well as that of extensive
fileds to be set out in the Yakima
Valley. Under the McKinley schedule
there is a duty of 30 cents a bushel on
flax seed and of 32 cents a gallon on
the oil. This country, however, now
exports to the United Kingdom annu
ally one to three million bushels of
the seed and the duty has ceasc;d to
cut much of a figure with the grow
In view of the fact that it is now
realized that all property in the State
of Washington is being confiscated for
taxes, we request every one of the
thirty-four counties in the state to
organize a “County Tax-payers’ Lea
gue,” to co-operate with the “State
Tax payers’ League”; and that each
County League elect delegates to pro
ceed to North Yakima, to convention
of the State League, Junesecond 1894,
to take such steps as may seem exped
ient to diminish the taxes imposed in
For the purpose of the more readily
placing all counties in touch with
each other, all communications from
the several County Leagues should be

The Prune Growers Future.
The Ranch seems to have plenty of
confidence in the future of the prune.
It says: ‘‘There seems to be a glut in
the prune market just now, but there
is nothing discouraging in the fact.
It is more the result of hard times
leading to greater economy in con
sumption than anything else. The
reputation of the Washington pro
duct is becoming better each year. A
push with the next crop will place
them well to the front.”
The prune raiser need have no fear
for the market of the future if he is
given one-half a show by the law
builders of tile country. The prune
is the standard sauce of the working
man, but lie can’t buy it in these days
of democratic prosperity. And not
satisfied with ruining the home mar
ket, that by every consideration of
right belongs to the producer of this
country, democracy now proposes to
strike down the last hope the fruit
grower has by admitting the pauper
picked, sun-dried * fruit of Germany
and France to this country free of
duty. If this unrighteous measure
passes there will be much to discour
age the prune grower.—-Olympian.

The Right to File.
The Post-Intelligencer Friday morn
ing contained a review of the land con-
test case of William H. Gorham vs.
Rice, and said that timber land
cannot he liomesteaded. Register
O’Toole states that thearticle is wrong
and is, calculated to mislead settlers
who arc holding timber land bv virtue
of homestead entries. The fact of tiie
matter is that all land except mineral
land, whether valuable for timber or
not, may be homestead provided the
homesteader has the priority of filing.
On the other hand a timber filing
may he made on land, providing the
timber applicant has the priority of
filing and shows that the land is
chiefly valuable for its timber. If,
however, the land should he shown to
he more valuable for its agricultural
purposes at the time of filing, than
lor its timbpr, then a timber entrv
may be successfully contested by a
CretiAt System Doomed.
As a result'«of the business depres
sion of 1893 the credit system seems
doomed. The time was ripe for the
needed change and the general mer
chant was not slow to take advantage
of it. Hereafter wise dealers will con
line their business to a cash basis, for
a bird in the hand is worth a dozen in
the yttsh, and there is not any plausi
ble reason why a dealer once freed
from the iniquitous credit system,
should desire *£o have the divorce set
aside. Trade spring goods has as
yet hardly begun, but if present ap
pearances are a''Criterion, a wonderful
change in the bttsiness situation is oc

their Nemesis and in their place is a
more confident feeling, which is prov
ing very beneficial to all branches of
legitimate tradei From a faint and
almost indistinguishable speck in the
canopy of the business world, confi
dence has now assumed an olfensive

that over-cautious feeling that has so
long dominated the buying communi
