Commissioner Sparks' Killing.
Yankton. D. T.. .Vc. I. Th general feel
ing throughout the Yankton land districts Is
very Intense ngnhit the rulings of Commis
sioner Sparks. Solders who havo their money
Invested In their homesteads 1110 threatened
wllh ruin by tho suspending of their patents.
Nearly nil of tho bona fldo farmer of this
district have taken tho oath of homestead
nnd pio-cinptlon, nnd tho forfeit of either ono
or their claims would work great hardship.
Money lenders nro particularly bitter against
tho Commissioner, und all tho land ugetits aro
plain spoken In condemnation of his course.
Unless some relief Is offered, .tho result will bo
that in many parts of this district wholo
towns will bo banished und settlers will bo
reduced to beggary.
Money cannot bo borrowed on land whoro
the patent has not Issued, and n great many
farmers require small loans to enable them to
harvest their crops. If Congress does not re
verso the ruling of Commissioner Sparks tho
ci edit of counties nnd townships In this dis
trict will be destroyed. Senator Logan, lu re
ply to a letter written by ox-Secretary Hand
relative to tho decisions of Commissioner
Sparks, says: "I hardly know what action will
bo taken lu regard to tho matter referred to.
The complaints against tho Commissioner of
the d'cneial Laud Olllco uro very numerous,
and will beconsldcied In connection with his
confirmation. Thero will no doubt bo n
thorough Investigation of the charges before

Wo havo a suggestion also In regard to

commonly called "two-for's," because ho
gets two of them for a nickel. His offense
