Excerpt from The Freebooters of the Wilderness
Or to take the case Of the timber thefts, I refer to two hundred thousand acres in California. I might have referred to a million and a half in Washington and Oregon.
Or referring to the mineral lands, I mention two thousand acres Of coal. I might have told another story of fifty thousand acres, or yet an other of three hundred thousand acres of gold and Silver lands. When I narrate the Shooting Of a man at the head Of a coal Shaft, the stealing Of Government timber by the half million dollars a year through the hatchet trick, or the theft Of two thousand acres by dummies, I am stating facts known to every Westerner out on the Spot.
