FARE FARM EXPLANATIONS.
The fake-farmer whines that the
various explanations with which Its
miserable proposition to populatu
public lands with dummy settlers was
accompanied, have not been given.
The complaint 'only makes the
original assertion n more monstrous
violation of honest Americanism.
There can bo no honest dummy
ottler under the American Hag or
under American law. Satisfaction of
land-hunger In this manner may pos
sibly cscapj n Technicality ot law,
but It vhlatcs every moral prlnclplo
of fair dealing.
A thou"and years of explanation
could not make less un-American a
bild proposition to "man the land"
with dummies for nny purpose.
What's moio, tho sugar corpora
tions of this Territory have not tho
slightest temptation to use dummy
settlors under an equitable admlnls
trntlon of tho land law and a. proper
regard for established industry, as
has been suggested by the words, and

acts of tho present Territorial Ad

Judge John Mnrcalllno Is holding
tourt today, and tno raso before him
It, the suit Iji eciulty of L. M. Whlte
houso versus John Wilson.
This Is a cane which has been
hanging Pro Tor nbout two years on
account of tho seeming Inability of
the court to get any MiiBtor to inako
a report on It. Whltehouso nnd Wll
fou wero partners In tho contracting
business about ten years ngo, ami
when the firm dissolved, each claim
ed that the other owed him money.
Wilson brought suit ngnlnst White-
Jiotiso on n promissory note, which
Whltehouso claims docs not repre-
t.ent actual cash owing, but was giv
en merely ns o credit of Wilson tin
tho nccounts of tho firm. '
Whltehouso brought u suit In eq
uity ngnlnst Wilson for nn account
ing, nnd also obtained a tcmpoiary
Injunction restraining Wilson from
proceeding with his action on tho
promissory note until an accounting
should bo had,
Tho mutter was referred to Wil
liam Sims its Master, hut ho appar
ently did nothing, nnd on motion of
Wuilb Warren Tliajcr, counsel for
Wilson, Sims wns removed nnd L. C.
Abies hiibstltutcd. Abies appeals to

did. Abies complains, according to a
Mntcmcnt mado this morning to

attorney for Whltehouse, that ho did
not lmvo sufllclont authority to tako
cvldenio. 'At nny rate, Thompson
said, ho hns examined no wljnesscs
and no documc nls,' nnd has not made
any request for the latter. All,
Thompson said, seem to pass tho
buck to the Judge. Tho lack of a
report by tho Musters wns more a
matter of Bhliklng than ot Inability.
Thompson moved that u new Master
be appointed, and suggested John
Mnrcalllno, clerk of Judge Lindsay's
Thayer objected to this, saying ho
thought It n matter for tho Couit
nnd ono which should bo settled by
tho Judge himself. "V,o can resolve

Thompson, sotto voce.

"Tho only nurantago of this prop
