CONTESTS come up for
adjudication by the Old Set
tler commission, as reported by T. It.
Knight who was up from Ft. Ulbson
a few days since. Some one will flic
a claim as heir to an old settler; then
along comes another person and sets
up claim under tbe same ancestor;
notice Is then served upon number one
to submit evidence In support of his
claim, and as bo Is frequently very
slow about complying a great deal of
time Is consumed or wasted for the
commission. Tho result Is that It
will be somo tlmo yet before tho com
mission's work is done, and In spite of
their best endeavors many fraudulent
claimants will no doubt get upon the
Old Settler rolls.
