THttANACONDA STANDARD: TUESDAY MORNING, DBCBMBBR J, iBBf.
Wamudotor,Doc. 2.^SwreUry Noble's^MM^I report for tbs department of the^interior ia unusually large, covering 187^of printed matter. Ita introduovnr^relato to affairs in Oklahoma which^a population of ^0,000, with W arhoola,^m churches and 22 newspapers. Much^apace ia given in the report to the census,^which ia to be taken in 1880. In the way^of preparation for that work the secretary^: MAa an illustration of the magiit-^of this undertaking, it ia only neeea-
to mention the fact that it is estimated
thatthere will lie employed in taking the^11th census, 42,OU^ enumerators, 2.0OO^clerks, from 800 to 900 special agents, 17ft^supervisors, aud 25 experts. The hiiiiiIht^of published v-lnnies will iimhnlily exceed^those of the lOth census. The calculation^has been matte that if the inuiiiry in re^^gard to veterans should yield l,li(JO,U0O^names, it will take eight quarto volumes^of 1,000 pages each to contain them.
Touchingaffairs of the general land^office the re|M^rt reviews the remarkable^order of Commissioner S|^u.rks in lri^o,^and refers to the large amount of unfin^^ished business, atltling that the final en^^tries matle during the year covered '.l.OHX,-^s92.1S acres; ttw orifrimtl entries, H.SH!!,-^1UH.44 acres, anil the railroad untl other^selections, 4,514.570.10 acres. The total^amount of cash sales aiiiniiiitt-il to rX,.'^7!t,-^410.40. The iiuiiils-r of final entries dis^^posed of during the year reached MO.tMJU.^There remained pending ill the^office on the :t0th of June, W.^,^180,filH final entries of all classes;^of original entries of all classes then^pending :i.W^H4. Kailroad selections un^^disposed of, 2H,444,251.i^4 acres (an increase^over the amount pending at the iM-giniiing^of the year of 4,014,:iH5.5.l acres). This^does not include 3st4.HStS.ti7 acres of Oregon^wagon-road selections. Swamp selet t ions^of the various Stutes covering over 2,(110,-^000 acres were |Miinlilig, and educational^and intttriiul-iiuprtivemeut selections cov^^ering l,*78,472.s^^ acres. The cash receipts^for the year, from all sources, were$b,til^l^,-^9111.34, a tlc^ reuse as con it mi ret I with the^previous year of Sa.Mlil ,i'.'ii;.i is. This de^^crease the coiiiinissioiicr explains, was^due mainly to the falling otr in cush^entries.
Regardingthe Miibjti-t ^^f irrigation in^western states, the re|m^rt is devoid t^f^valuable recttiumenilatiitns ami is of^small account in view of the full rc|M^rt^which the senatorial committee will^doubtless make on that subject iluring^the session of congress. As tti the railroad^land grant*, the report irivus valuable sta^^tistics, anil otitis that ^if congress intends^to forfeit the lands, all of the facts are^before it. The failure to act may well Ixt^taken as an indication on the part of the^government that the forfeiture will not I hi^insisted upon. Such would Is- a just con^^clusion on the part of the ofllcers of this^dcpurtiiiclit, ami tla-se patents may yet^be issued u|m^ii the presumption that con^^gress tlis-s not intend that the forfeiture^shall 1st exacted, and that there is^Ilo need of further delay. There should^certainly Is- found somewhere the moral^courage to give the evidence of title to the^railroads as it is given to the individual, if^it is intended that any possible forfeiture^will Hot Is- insisted upon. The obligation,^however, fairly rests upon congress, ami^it is hoped that the latter will assume it^and act without further delay. Not only^the railroad companies are interested in^the decision of these matters, but also the^government, in order that its business^may Is* tlis|x^scd of; the citizens, who^have purchased from the company re^^lying upon the kraut, anil the settlers,^who, in anticipation of the restoration of^these lands to the public domain, have^settled upon them under the homestead^or other laws.
Thebusiness of the patent office is sum^^marised in figures which show that tin*^total mimls'i- of applications received, in^^cluding designs, re-issues, etc., was 42,1)17;^tht* number of patents grunted was 22,1*41 ;^the total receipts were $1,180,557.22: the^total exis-mlitiires were e*.s,KI,ISH7.24, leav^^ing a surplus of *l**l,tSSH.HM to be turned^into the treasury of the Tinted States to^the credit of the patent fund, and making^a total huluilcc in the treasury on account^of the patent fund of *^l,52t,f^:^'i.ti3.
Tliecommissioner reports that the ex^^amination of applications for patents car^^ried on in twenty-four of the thirty re^^maining divisions has been brought up^to within two mouths of that date, and of^the remaining six divisions out^half are^less than three months in arrears, but he^believes that the arrears in work in all^the divisions call be practically done^away with at uu early date through the^cordial co-o|H*rotion of the force with the^efforts of the commissioner.
