If !-ang Cobb is successful In prov
ing to tho Government that he was J
not negligent in having the nbcessa c
ry surveys made or the land back bf i|
the cemetery known as the Scntqr
tract, about thirty squatters will find (
I themselves without right to the land j
on which they hare located. <
On February 3, 1914, Mr. Cobb tiled (
script on the land In question., and; |
was allowed ninety days in which to
begin the work of survey. Arrange- <
ments were made at the time with t
Deputy Surveyor H. P. Crowther to <
undertake the work and upon his lat ,
er refusal to undertake it Deputy
Surveyor V. H. Wllhelm was en i
gaged. About one week before the|i
expiration of the ninety days Mr. i
Wllhelm also severed his connection j
with the work. I
At that time Mr. Cobb made appli-, j
cation for a thirty-day extension of ]
time In which to have the survey
made, and went about the work sur- (
veying the tract on which he had ;
filed. |^gv
The hearing in the case, which ts i
set for September 15. will determine i
whether or not Mr. Cobb has been '
negligent on the matter of survey, ! j
Mr. Cobb holds that it is not the prtv-j j
ilege of a government surveyor to re- i
fuse to survey lands on which filing 1
is made. I
Among the squatters who have lo
cated on the tract in question arc L.
EL VanWinkle. L. EL Spray. J. B.
Marshall, and others, who have filed
a protest. J. B. Marshall will repre
sent VanWinkle and Spray, the Oth
er squatters being represented by
Shackleford and Bayless.
The disputed land has been built ,
up very extensively during the course ?
of the controversy, and several at- j
tractive -bungalows have been con- ,
structed. The land lies directly back ,
of the cemetery and runs up on the ,
hillside. The filing was for a sol- ,
tilers' additional homestead. com- ,
prising 13.92 acres.

Tn connection with the recent ap
jropriatlon made by the City 'Council
or the maintenance of schools, in
vhlch the budget granted was about
[1300 less than the amount request
;d. it has developed .totjay thaL the
?eal reason for the cut urns not the
ack of funds,- but ther fact that the
jresent council feels that its respon
ilbllity In connection with the appro
bation ends with t^ie month of
\prll when the' new council will go
nto ofllce. The law regarding tho
natter implies that tile appropriation
s to be made for the school year,
rhe council has interpreted the law
.0 mean an appropriation for a calen
lar year, and in view of the fact that
heir term of ofllce closes before the
?ntf of the school year, they have cur
ailed the appropriation accordingly,,
f Is the impression .of the^ Council
ind the School Board fhatlhc remain
ler of the amount of the estimated
>udget will be appropriated by Uie
tew council when It assumes the ?flu
i >s of office.
This matter will pro,ba^ly,t..^
