W Longer Residence Required. An order by Commissioner Bal linger just issued from the general land office at Washington is one of the most important rulings of recent years in connection with the acquisi tion of lands under the homestead laws. It abolishes the privilege here tofore given entry men of the six months' "constructive residence'' when they desire to commute their entries and requires fourteen ^months' actual residence before commutation proof will be accepted. Commission er Ballinger's order is as follows "It was believed that under the old construction of the commutative pro vision of the homestead law, which recognized a constructive residence, persons desiring to secure public lands for specualtive purposes were furnished with inducements and facil ities not found under other land Jaws and that a large percentage of homestead entries commuted to cash were, in their first inception, made for the purpose only of securing the title to the land and not with a view to obtaining a home for the sole use and benefit of entrymen, which was the primary object of the home stead law which donates homes to the citizens of the United States in order to advance the general welfaj^, in cluding residence and cultivation of such lands as are adapted to agricul tural purposes. was I a Dairying Section.
