CITY AND COUNTT OFFICIAL PAPER, ft, TEL I. ER hoe the largett circulation of any paper in Xorth Idaho. THURSDAY...... .....JAN. 2«, 1882 OUR WASHINGTON LETTER. Congress— Star Route aud Land Of fice Fraud» — Railroad Cranta— Homestead Decisions. Washington, 1). C., | Jan. 3, 1882. | The holiday season is now over and in a few days Congress will reassemble to enter upon one of tho most protract ed and important sossioos that has been held for some years. The members of aeveral committees, whoso homes are too far away to carve the Christmas turkey in, have remainod hore during the rocess, and applied themselves to shaping the enormous amount of work to be performed before Iho final ad journmont. The private bills already introduced are of themselves sufficient to lengthen the session far into the summer, and with the railroad and other schemes which the myriad of lob byists have cocked and primed, will make this session a distinctively busi ness one. The large number of contested elec tion cases, considering the closeness and complexion of the two IIousos, attract peculiar attention, and especially is this true of the Utah contest, about the re sult of which thero is great diversity of opinion. This case, which will be taken ■p early in January, presents some perplexing foaturos, and several of the best lawyers in the House are in doubt as to the course they ought to take in regard to it. Mr. Campbell holds a certificate of election from Governor Murray, while Mr. Cannon has noth ing but a certified statement of the re turns, showing that he hud a majority of the votes cast. The friends of the Mormon candidate claim that the Gov ernor's certificate is irregular, in that it contains the clause, "being a citizen of the United States," that the law gives the Governor no power to judge of the eligibility of a candidats for Con gress but commands him to give a cer tificate to tho person having the great set number of votes, and that Congress alone has the right to judge of the cit isenship of the candidate. Wbilo Camp bell's friends argue that tho law do dares that the candidate shall be a citizen of the Unitod States, and that the offending clause in tho Governor's certificate is merely explanatory, being true, but still unnecessary, and there fore does not vitiate tho certificate. It is not improbable that both contestants will be rejected—Campbell because of a defective certificate and Cannon be cause he has none. There is a strong determination among Congressmen to take vigoious means to suppress polygamy, but sever al of those who are moat earnest in this design, say that by recognizing the Governor's right to judge of the eligi bility of a candidate for Congress, a precedent would be established which might give rise to endless trouble iu the future. From the bills introduced and the manifest disgust of certain members, who/ cannot be purchased, it is easily seen that tha railroad monopolies who have had large laud grants and then fbiled to perform their part of the con tract, will be brought to face the fact, whether they can break their contracts with impunity and still continue to hog in the land. Borne of these highly injured corporations, after obtaining vast gifts of lands under definito and express provisions of law, not only have tha cheek to inform Congress that lands once granted cannot revert except by special act, but they have the money to oheck proceedings of ouster implied aud authorized by the natural process of law. In order to accommodate the Ë oua samples of these corporations, raator Plumb has introduced a sweep ing bill to restore to the public domain all lands, in cases where the contract with the Government has not been kept. The fight will, doubtless, be lively as the railroads have numerous lobbi sots and plenty of money, which in such fights "is all powerfully powerful." But whether the land shall again be come public, or continue to be gobbled tap by the companies, it will probably cause an increased activity in the con struction of thu roads, aud thereby afford an outlet for the wonderful ro of our Territories and frontier This seems to be an "off year" for those innocent public servants who nhile serving the Government, can sec no wrong in opening their pockets to receive small tokens of esteem for their friends, who have dealings before the departments. Why, how indignant they become if it is intimated that they might have ac'.ed just a little bit wrong, "la* law gives us discretion to do cer tain things and does not make it a criminal offense, if we exercise our dis cretion« then how ran it be wrong if no do receive little pre.«ents from our gratefnl friends whom we have assisted fin «btto the Government!" First «ornes the sorely persecuted inaoddnte Implicated in the "Star ltoute Fronds." How bitterly they denounced Go----- " istration, aud clamored for an early trial, and when the administration changed, they secretly hoped that the whole matter would fizzle out, and even talked of sueing the Government offi cials for defamation of character. I tut they wore mistaken in their man, and when Brewster was appointed Attor ney-General they gave up tho ghost, lie has just directed his assistants to not only vigorously push the criminal prosecutions, but to commence civil proceedings against every one of the innocents and make them disgorge every cent of their ill gotten gains, lie also says that he will lead the criminal cases in person and that means that somebody will get hurt. There has been n shaking up of dry bones or fat "ringmen" recently, in the Land Office, that has resulted in shak ing some-out of office, and more yet to be shook, whom they say, quinine wont save. During the last eight years thero has been a combination of rascals, both inside ami out of the Department, by whom tho Government has been de frauded out of a largo amount of lands. Judge McFarland the present Commis sinner, who is blest with a large amount of common sense and old timo honesty, and who believes that the Government should bo protected from the ravages of rings and dishonest officials, upon these rumors coining to his notice or dered an investigation, aud in conse quence of which, heads have commenc ed to fall into the waste basket already. Since 1879 the Stats of Florida has obtained over 3,000,000 acres of the public domain under tho swamp land act. When this grant was made tho rumor got afloat that, iostead of being swamp land, much of this enormous aceragc was agricultural and tillable aud had been filched from the Government by the fraud of a land ring. Schurz sunt down a Commission from the Land Office to make inspection, who reported everything regular. Since then such indisputable evidence that ono third of tho grant was agricultural laud, has been presented to tho Commissioner that he dissolved the old Commission; and it is said Congress will by resolu tion appoint a Commission to investi gate this fraud, and also tho land grabs of large bodies of land in New Moxico The Secretary, within a few days past, made a very important decision affecting the rights of widows of de ceased homestead settlers undor the act of March 3, 1879. Tha act provides that where a settler has heretofore made an entry of less than 160 acres of land within the limits of a railroad grant, ho may now make an entry of a sufficient number of acres to make 160 ncros. In the cose under consid eration the deceased homesteader made an entry of 80 acres and after his death tha widow applied to enter an addition al 80 acres under said act. The Com missioner refused the application and held that the right was a personal one, which only the person who made the original entry was entitled to exercise. The Secretary, on appeal, reversed tho Commissioner's decision and held, that "the provisions of the act are remedial and while the beneficiaries take by de scriptive words, thus confining the grant to a personal right, the spirit of tho act must be observed in recogniz ing whomsoever mayghave been proper objects of relief, if poiuted out with reasonable clearness by the descriptive language used." "The words 'who had under existing laws taken a homestead' comprehend and include all persons who in any manner by original entry or by opera tion of law have succeeded to the right to make final proof and payment of fees and tako the patent for tho land. As this right is cast upon the widow by operation of law, she must be held to have taken the homestead under exist ing laws, and should not by narrow and uitable construction bo deprived of the benefit of the amendatory stat ute." She was also permitted to make tho entry without the pnyment of any additional foes or commissions. Lbwiston. A REIGN OF TERROR!
