Wasiiin..io\.I)is^. :'ai.^iSpecial. ]^Sec^^retary Noble's intention wsa to-day^called to a point in the sctiuti of the^land offiivs throughout the we'd. The^|s^int which win be considered is the^bonds of receivers in land offices.^The mailer was brought to light by a case^in the new state of Washington, which may^be made a test case. A homesteader named^Neil proved up and made his final cash |^i\-^ment. The icccim r accepted his draft, but^made no entry of the receipt of the money^on the land o'iice books. N. ff did not get^the patent on bis laud. There is no law to^touc h the receiver, and if the test case is^made, it will be sivn if the government may^levy on his Ismd. The precedents are thai^U cannot. The bond is for the faithful^pHfMMMMtaf the receiver iu handling^^public mimics.^ mid the government has^hi rc'iifor^held that money was not public^money until it had bun made a matter of re-^coniyt the! mil office. Sothat leaves nothing^for I he settler n i he receiver is dishonest. The^correspondent of Tin Imiliu muni looked^up Ibis subject at the department of the^interior. He was shown many cases, still^under investigation, where settlers have^In . li haters from just this lenson. There^are claimants who had mi ut money to the^receiver at Tiles aj, Arizona, and had noth^^ing to showf or it. The aggregate amount^there was |ffMfg\ which came out of su^^tlers. In Topi-ka, Kan., the receiver made^nn assignment of iU.lHKI of funds whieli^rightfully belong to settlers. The^n e, iver at laM Cruces, New Mi xico,^failed to receipt for several hundreds,^and the homesteaders have to suffer,^i i'-n s.man Wilson, of Washington, who^was looking nfl. r the case to day, was told^that this would tie a good one to make a^test. If the di cisioii ia that the bondsmen^are not liable under the present form of^bond, it is likely that the secretary of the^interior will modify the bond, ns il was said^thai he had this (siwer, and it is the jailiey^of the adiiiinisli.ition to give all the secur^^ity |Hwisiblc to sett li rs.
