COMMUTATION PROOFS REJECTED
Merely Residing on Claim Is Not Complying With Homestead

Improvements Made on Same
Homestead hiot'K . lias tumbled
again. Plerco Evans, tho attorney
for tin! plaintiffs, has received decis
ions from thu Register and Receiver
of thu Lakevlew Land Offlco In tho
casc3 of Ilcncdlct vs. Lundy and New
ton vs. Yndcn. Tho ovldonco In both
of these cases was taken before the
county clerk of this county In Juno
nnd tho decisions of Lakevlew offi
cials, which havo Jutt been rendered,
drc both ndvorso to tho homesteaders
who commuted on tho lands Involved
about two years before the contests
Thu affidavits of conteat alleged
that tho parties had not actually es
tablished residence on the lands and
that they had not cultivated and Im
proved thn same In accordance with
the homestead laws. In the case of
Clarence O. Benedict vs. Carrie Lun
dy the officials held that the laws
wero not complied with and that tho
claim was taken mainly for the tim
ber and tho commutation proof was
thereforo rejected and the entry held
for cancellation. In tho case of Oblo
I. Nowton V8. Nelllo Boyd-Yaden tho
proof was rejected on account or the
land being heavily timbered. Its not
being suitable for agricultural pur
poses and because a residence had not
been established and maintained In
Both of these claims -wero filed on
ionic flvo j ears ago and the parties
making entry resided on them and
.nadd commutation proof, but patents
.rive not been Issued.
The Register and Receiver have
rendered opinion: In the contest caser
of Lon Evans vs. Edward Brady and
Ray Evans vs. A. Stallaworth; the
declalon were received this morning
by C. P. Stone, attorney for the con
testants, nnd Ineach case tho local of

entry bo cancelled. Theso liomo-

in tho contests was tnken before Oeo.

lled on the lack of cultivation to sup
port tho chargo of abandonment;
thero was but little dlsputo on tho
question of residence. Each home
steader had mado his entry his homo
for a considerable portion of thu tlmo
since taking the land but he failed
to cultivate tho land to any appre
ciable extent. It was contended on
the part of tho contestecs that If It
could not be shown that the home
steads had been abandoned for moro
than six months at any one period
that the claim of abandonment could
not be sustained, but the Register
and Receiver are of the opinion that
cultivation of tho land Is as much a
requisite as rcsldenco and that fall
uro to cultlvato the land makes It
subject to contest.
