We present in another column Circous
tar No. °21, containing important Instruc
tions to the officers of Local L~and offices,
in regard to the entry of lands. It is
the first definite instruction issued,
covering entries, where a doubt exists
as to whether they are properly agricul-.
tural or mineral lands. The ruling of
the Commissioner is arbitr~ary, govern
ing local officers. It differs materially
from the view taken of the law, by many
officers and pre-emptors,and reveries the
presumptive rightof entry from mineral
to agricultural lands. While the ruling
is undoubtedly right, and well intended,
it is to be regretted that it opens the
door to annoyance from evil disposed
persons, who may thereby delay, for a
time, the granting of titles to valuable
property. The law is, however, equita
ble and miners do not tolerate the med-.
dling of that class of men. The princi.
pal points in the Commissioners instruc
tioD.5 are
1st. All lands are presumed to be ag
ricultural if improved by settlers. unless
previously reserved as mineral, or affi
davits filed to that effect.
2d. In case these lands are claimed for
mineral purposes, the burden of proof
lies with those making the claim.
3d. The mere existence of gold, silver,
cinnabar or copper thereon, is not suffi
cient; they must be proven maure ralua..
bk as mineral than agricultural lands.
4th. The return of the Deputy Sur
veyor is not sufficient ;it must be
5th. Lands reserved as mineral, may
contain portions more valuable as agri
cultural which must be open for entry
under that class, and may be so entered
if in good faith, after six months, unless
affidavits are filed against it.
6th. '(lood faith"' is in all cases de-.
manded; for whichever purpose entered,
it must b.- established they are more
valuable for that than the other.
7th. Timber lands may not be entered,
as mineral to monopolize their use.
8th. Affidavits must allege the exist.
ance of gold, silver cinnabar or copper on
mineral lands claimed, or the land be
liable to pre-emption as agricultural.
9th. Lands more valuable as mineral
cannot be entered by pre-emption or un
der the homestead law as agricultural
mineral rights taking precedence.
10th. Mineral lands when exhausted
may be entered as agricultural.
11. Contested claims go to the Glener
al land office for final adjudication.
The Circular is an important one and
should receive the consideration of all
who contemplate the entry of either
mineral or agricultural lands, as, under
it Registers and Receivers must act.
The House has voted the appropriation
of $7,200,000 for Alaska, and it is now
past doubt a Territory of the United
States. The exchange of treaties took
place June 20O, 1867, and the money was
to have been paid April 20, 1868, our
military forces having, in the meantime,
taken possession. It was feared that
the failure of the House might lead to
unpleasant complications with Russia,
but that power which has manifested
toward the United States, these many
years,'a friendly spirit, duly reciprocated,
has not urged us. Mr. Butler endeavor
ed to put a rider on the resolution with
holding some half million dollars claim
ed to be due, we believe, a Massachusects
firm for munitions of war manufactured
for Russia during the Crimean war, but
the House rejected it. WVith the many,
we believe the purchase of Alaska was
inopportune, and yet accord that in many
respects it is valuable to the United
states. It loosens the hold of one great
alien power from this continent ; it place.
British Columbia in a position that ren'%
ders its annexation to the United States
desirable, perhaps essential to its wel
fare. We are absorbing the continent ;
that is America's destiny. It gives us
170,000 square miles of territory-larger
than England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales,
D~enmiark, Sweeden and Norway com
bined. It gives us four thousand miles
of sea coast; wi.th fine harbors and a coast
line of 11,000: with fisheries ten times
larger than those of the Atlantic. They
last year sent twenty cargoes of fish, 22,
:3663,000 pounds, into San Francisco. Mr.
Johnson, of Californiw, stated in the
Hlouse, they wouUld thufs year send ten
times that amount, and in three years,
with American enterprise, supply the
markets of the world. It gives us great
forests of ship timber, and the trade
winds of the Pacific six months in the
year brings the commerce of Asia along
its shores, another additional argument
for the Northern Pacific Railroad, by
which it would'save the distance tmom
Puget Souad to San Francisco. Alaska
may appear valueless now. It is only.
a few years since the half continent west
of the Missouri was so esteemed. It is
conuidered valuable now. Alaska may
net prove to have been a bad purchase,
evvt though it was untimely. The gov.
erumest had punrchased it. It bad arised
Some time since a bill wa introduced
in the House to amend the organic act
of Idaho, extending the jarisdiction of
Justices of the Peace. It ma referred
to the Judiciary Committee, sand on June
30 the Committee reported a substitute
including the Territory of Montana in
its provisions. The substitute was re -
ported and agreed to. Its provisions we
quote from the GJiobe of July let.
It provides that the organic act of the
Territories of Idaho and Montana, and
the acts amending the same, so tar as
they relate to the jurisdiction of probate
courts and of Justices of the peace, be
amended as follows : The probate court
in said Territories in their respective
counties, in addition to their probate jur.
iudiction, are hereby authorized to hear
and determine civil causes wherein the
debt or damage does not exceed $2,000,
and also such criminal case.' arisi0ngun
der the laws of said Territory' sd not
require the intervention of a grand jury;
provided that said probate courts shall
not have jurisdiction in any matter in
controversy wherein the title of right to
the peaceable possession of land may be
in dispute, nor of chancery or divorce
cases. And provided further, that in all
cases :.n appeal may be taken for any
order, judgment, or decree of said pro
bate courts to the Supreme court of the
Territory. The judge of each probate
court in Montana, when the population
shall exceed six thousand, may, if the
Legislative Assembly of the Territory so
authorize, appoint a clerk of said court,
who shall hold said office during the
session of the Court, and shall receive
such fees as may be fixed by law. The
probate courts in Montana where the
Lgsative Assembly shall have author'
ized the appointment of a clerk as herein
provided shall be courts of record.
Section two provides that justices of
the peace in said Territories in actions
and proceedings of which they now have
jurisdiction by the laws of said Territo
ries, and the acts hereby amended, are
authorized to hear and determine mat
ters in controversy wherein the debt or
sum claimed shall not exceed the sum of
This bill will probably become a law.
It materially extends the jurisdiction of
Probate Courts ; they having heretofore
been restricted to cases lees than $500O.
It also changes the appeal from the Dis%
trict to the Supreme Court. This j uris
diction it the same as exercised by Pro.
bate Courts and Justices in Colorado for
the last five years, where it has worked
It will be remembered that a short
time since the Senate paused an act ex
tending the time of completion of the
Northern Pacific Railroad. It went to
the House and was buried under other
busfness rendering it impracticable to be
reached under the rules. To avoid pos
sibility of failure, the House passed a
joint resolution precisely simillar in pur
port which was taken up in the Senate
by unanimous seon nt. June 29th, and
passed a third reading. It continues all
the grants of land, providing that the
company shall begin work within two
years from July 2d, 1868, and construct,
equip, furnish and complete not less
than 100 miles each year thereafter, and
complete the entire road from Lake Su
perior to Puget Sound Inside of nine
years. The Democrat will make a note.
We have received a communication
from a gentleman thoroughly conver
sant with the overland Railroad projects,
in reply to our''suggestloon, stating that
"the U. P. R. R" has no Inclination orir,
tention to construct a Branch road to
Montana, unless. the same subsidy is
granted as on the mountain divisions of
the U. P. Hi. H." and that "the expec
tancy of the Branch, securing prece
dence of the Northern Pacific in Con
gress is absurd. The temper of Con
gress is altogether in favor of the Nokth".
ern road." The fact of the resolution
coming up as a question of privilege
and passing unanimously is confirma
tory of the statement. Still, we believe
the organization of a committee of rep.
resentative men, to communicate with
the officers of that road is desirable and
should receive attention.
"It will be remembered in the elec
tions of the last few years how sedua
lously the reporters of the Associated
Press, mast of whom are Radicals, took
every occasion to misrepresent., and al
ways made up their dispatches from the
perverted accounts of liadical "specials."'
We see by to-days's telegrams that this
game has begun again."-Gaaette 16th.
If the Gazette editor did see it, its
readers did not. That diaj~atch dated
New York, July 14th, was suppressed In
that paper. In it " Governor Vance
declared what the Confederacy fought
for, would be won by the election of
Seymour and Blair." Governor Wise
" denounced as a falsehood that portion
of the Democratic platform, which
Ialleged the rebellion was dead, and sup
ported Blair because he had promised
revolution." The Gazette dare not. pub
lish that to loyal Democrats of Montana,
though it was aliment to the Democrats
of Richmond, and a strong argument
for the Democratic ticket. " Democrc
knows no North no South," It is use
less to fabricate and plead .1perversion." I

point whatever, nor did we. The annul.

the Gazette stumbles on is, tiat all acts
paused at the sessions of 1S6 were "de.
clared null and void," but byspecial re
enactment In each case, the Legislature
was empowered to make tiern valid
from date of enactment. TlW,, diti nwt

when vested rights had beer acquired,
they stood good, Is also incorrect. The
proviso was that "parties claluing vest

the act from testing them in tie Courts."
Instead of this, the Legislatur. assumed
to decide, and renew them Inviolatlon
of the U. S. statute. Aithiugh the

points, on these it is clear anc explicit,
and a reading will so convince he editor
of the Gazette. We have beer ever op
