DOING A LAND OFFICE BUSINESS.
Two Federal Officials Who Are Earning
▲ Multitude of Contests Between Min
eral, Agricultural and Home
Register Fraser and Receiver Gardner
of the Federal Land Office in this city
manage to keep themselves occupied
without having to bear either of the af
flictions of Texas' busiest citizen. A
man who recently visited the Lone Star
State said he found oue very busy man
down there. He had the salt rheum and
a Waterbury watch, aud when he wasn't
scratching himself he was winding his
In the local Government Land Office,
however, the oihcials have all they can
do hearing and determining contested
land cases. The more recent ones are:
li. Zadig and others, mineral protest
ants, against the Central Pacific Railroad
Oompany and Anthony Clark, transferee
(respondents;, involving themineralor
non-mineral character of the northeast
quarter of northeast quarter of tno south
half of tho northeast quarter, and the
southeast quarter of section b, township
13 north, range 10 east, M. D. M., em
bracing 280 acres.
The laud lies on the Forest Hill Divide
in Placer County. The mineral protest
ants alleged the existence of a valuable
deep auriferous gravel deposit on the
land embraced within their mineral lo
cation of the "Annex l'lacer Mine."
This they failed to substantiate at tho
hearing, as no testimony was given tend
ing to snow that gola had ever been dis
covered in any part, of the lands iv hear
ing. The protestants' claim, that min
erals do exist therein, has no support on
demonstration, but rests wholly iv the
theories and belief of their witnesses, that
the Forest Hill channel does trend
through them, deep beneath the suriace.
The testimony on behalf of the re
spondents shows the uso of the land ior
agricultural and grazing purposes lor
many years, and valuable agricultural
improvements thereon, consisting of
fencing, two houses, barus and other
buildings, estimated to bo worthss,ooo.
Tho value of the land lor agricultural
purposes is estimated by Clark, one of
the respondents, at from $40 to $45 per
Ihe decision is that "all tho lands the
subject of the hearing are valuable agri
cultural lands, and that none thereof
have any value lor minerals discovered,
or known to exist therein; that all of
said lands inure to the Central Pacific
ltailroad Company under its land grant
of July 2, 1862."
AN AMAUoIi CASK.
In the case of L. A. Roberts, mineral
lode claimant and contestant, against
Bernardo Pendola, placer applicant aud
resj)ondent, Involving the question as to
whether or not within the oxterior lim
its of the laud embraced within the placer
mining application of the respondent at
and prior to November 2, 1892, the date of
respondent's mineral application, thero
was a gold-bearing "located known lode"
The Register and Receiver decide tbe
issue thus prosented in the affirmative,
ami that the mineral application of the
respondent should be canceled.
Tho land involved in the case is situ
ated iv Amador County, near Jackson,
and adjoining the celebrated Kennedy
quartz mine. It is uiore particularly de
scribed as the north half of lot 5, section
17, township 6 north, range 11 east, Mount
FROM V.L DORADO.
The case of Henry M. Koerner and
others, protestants aud mineral contest- j
ants, against David VV. Gipe, homestead

and submitted. The land involved is the
southeast quarter of the northeast quarter
of section ;> 3, township lv uorth, raugo 11
east, Mount Diablo meridian, embracing
forty acres, lying about livo miles south
east of Placerville, El Dorado Couuty.
,uestions at issue are whether or
not tho homestead claimant has com
plied with the requirements of the home
stead law as to residence, cultivation and
improvement of tho laud in dispute, and
whether or not tho said land is more
valuable for mineral than for agricultural
The case was stubbornly contested on
both sides, and is one of considerable
local interest in El Dorado County.
Tho caso ot Frank T. Garrett, contest
ant, against Prank A. McManus, home
stead claimant and respondent, involving
the south hall of the southeast quarter of
section 34, township 14 north, range il
east, Mount iuablo meridian, embracing
eighty acres of land in Placer County,
about one mile irom Weimar Station, has
also been tried and submitted.
The question at issue is, "Has the re
spondent, McManus, abandoned tho tract
of laud in question V"
lv view of the coullicting testimony,
the Register and Receiver will ou the -Ist
inst. personally inspect the laud in
volved in this contest, and will uso the
knowledge so acquired to better under
stand and apply the testimony.
ANOTHER UZNEBAL CONTEST.
The contested case of Martin McXally,
mineral atliant aud contestant, against
Frank C. Hood, homestead claimant and
responueut, is now ou trial. The ques
tion at issue in this case is, whether or
not within the exterior limits of the min
eral location of the St. Joseph mining
claim, as embraced within the homestead
ciaim of respondent Hood, thero is
known to exist a valuable gold-bearing
'Ihe land covered by tho homestead
claim of respondent is the northwest
quarter of section s, township 15 north,
range 10 east, M. 1). M. a in Placer County,
near Cold Kun.
It is iv evidence that tho agricultural

SENT TO THE GOVERNOR
A Picture Presented to Him by W. H.
A picture was hung yesterday at the
north end of the lower hall in the State
Capitol, which has an interesting his
tory, besides being worth looking at for
its own sake.
It is about seven feet by nine, and rep
resents a duck-shooting scene in the San
Joaquin Valley among tho tules. It was
painted a number of years ago by au in
sane mau, who was an inmate of the
Stockton Insane Asylum, and proves
that whatever might have been the con
dition of his mind his hand had not lost
In an cpen space in the tules kneel a
man and boy watching the approach of a
llock of ducks. On the boy's face is an
expression oi" eager anticipation, which
is well delineated. On the man's coun
tenance, however, the artist has shown
considerable skill. The eager eye is
fixed on the advancing llock, the gun is
held ready lor iustani aim, whiie tho
tense expression of the features indicates
that he is mentally calculating the mo
ment whou the ducks will have reached
the positiou in which his shot will be
most oll'ective. Dy their side is couched
a white setter, whose eyes are also iixed
intently on tho advancing game, while
his hind legs are drawn up, ready to
spring and retrieve tho fowl alter his
master lui3 brought them down.
Altnough the picture cannot be called a
work of art, the ligures aro good. The
painting was formerly owned by a Stock
ton liro compauy and bought by \\ . 11.
Grissim of Santa Rosa when the com
pany broko up and its property was sold.
Governor Budd took a fancy to it when
on his campaign Last fall, and Mr. Gris

Ah Jim, an i-street Celestial, started

ATTACHMENT VS. MORTGAGE.
Two Legal Plasters Clapped Upon
Milton Halsey's Property.
Milton S, Halsey apparently aspires to
the title already conferred on a number
of othor men of "the Young Napoleon of
Finance." A few weeks ago he came into
possession of the $10,000 estate loit by his
mother, the income from which in the
way of rentals was suilicient to keep him
in comfortable circumstances, even if he
was to indulge in the luxury of a bicycle
with pnncturable tubes.
Mr. iiaisoy concluded a day or two ago
that ho wanted somo ready cash. The
rontals from his property came in too
slow to suit his pleasure, so ho went to
Mrs. Josefa Cieufuegos (formerly Mrs.
James Barron) and borrowed $7,200, giv
ing his note therefor and v mortgage on
his real estato.
When the lady's agent. 17. A. Crouch,
went to have the mortgage recorded he
discovered that a few hours before he got
there William S. Howo, as assignee of
another person who held Halsey's noto
for >l-l, had been there and tiled for rec
ord an attachment against, Halsey's prop
erty lor that sum.
This fact did not, however, disturb Mr.
Crouch, who says the property is worth
more than enough to cover both obliga
tions of the young man.
