of this nature is presumably the ob

fact on all entries 011 public land except where
land has been otTemi for sale, in winch latter

ous charges of fraud and refuse to allow final
proving up in cases where fraudulent intent is
evident. It can work no hardship to

Seeing half breeds falling dead at tho first
fire, ins followers returned the shots with
much execution. Tho light was short

Central American Complications.
Gen. f. B. Bunting of New York, who somo
years ago held a prominent position in tho
army of Guatemala, has just received a letter
I from an American gentleman living in Guate
mala, which throws much light on tho Ceutral
American complications. Tie letter which is
dated Guatemala, March Pi, after speaking of
Barrios' announcement of his design to consol
idate the five republics, says:
As Salvador now sends ambassadors to dis
cuss, and perhaps to arrange matters to make
common cause, Barrios has deferred offensive
operations. Still, not to be taken unawares,
he has dsspatched (as they say) 1o,(HK troops
to the frontier. I think'the number maybe
exagerated, but troops are leaving every day,
and a large amount of ammunition,equipments,
etc., in being sent forward. Volunteers
come pouring in from all quarters, without the
necessity of "returning (he fees," for this man
has, us he alone can do, imparted liirt magnet
ism to the people. Maiy,- foreigners aro offer
ing their set-vises, and things arc being pushed
with a vigor and energy that leaves doubt of a
speedy and glorious termination of the coulliet.
Barrios sees all, understands all, orders all.
With a memory that staggers at nothing, a per
ception as quick as lightning, a mental scope
taking in everything at a glance, personal
bravery amounting to temerity, a coil head
that never loses its judgment, and an energy
that knows 110 faltering, he compels sucess,
and will, before many mouths roll around,
make of this weak, disintegrated country a
eolid, strong, prosperous republic.
Tree Claims and Roads.
A correspondent at Rodwood Falls asks if
a man who has lived 011 a tree claim with his
family six or seven years, and has planted all
the trees required oi him, can properly sign a
petition for tho laying out of a new town road
without waiting until he has made final proof
of his claim. The statute fchap. Pi, soc.
i requires that a petitioner for the laying out or
altering of a town road shall be a legal voter
and must own real estate "ur occupy real os
i tate under the homestead or pre emption laws
of the I'liitcd States, or u:uler contract with
I the State of Minnesota'1 within one mile of tho
proposed roadway, Legal advice, obtained up
oil the subject is to the effect that as tree claims
I are not mentioned bv the law, an occupant of
such a claim, unless In* has come into full
possession thereof by proving up, is not prop
urly a signer to a roadway petition—that is lua
signature should have no weight.
