New Rules Regarding the Method of
Making Proofs on Land
officials of the toptA, landofHce
have1received a circular froitrthe com
missioner of the general landoffice in
which is noted a number of important
changes in the rules for the making
of final proofs. The rules set forth in
a circular, Issued July 17, 1889, are re
voked and hereafter the following
rules will be effective:
1. Final proofs in all cases where
the same are required by the general
land laws or regulations of the depart
ment, mUst be taken in accordance
with the published notice provided,
however, that such testimony may be
taken within ten days following the
time advertised in cases where acci
dent or unavoidable delays have pre
vented the applicant or his witnesses
from making such proof on the day
2. Where final proof or any part
thereof has not been taken on the. day
advertised, or within ten days there
after under the exceptions and as re
quired in Rule 1, you will direct new
advertisement to be made and if no
protest or objection is then filed the
proof theretofore submitted, if in com
pliance with the law in other respects,
may be accepted.
3. If the testimony of either claim
ant or witness is taken at a different
place than that advertised the com
missioner may, if in his opinion same
is required, cause new advertisement
for the proof to be taken at such place
as he may deem advisable, or If in his
opinion new advertisement is unneces
sary, and no protest or objection has
been filed, the proof theretofore sub
mitted, if regular in all other respects,
may be accepted without further tes
4. When a witness not named in
the advertisement is substituted for
kn advertised witness, unless two of
the advertised witnesses testify, re
quire new advertisement of the names
of the witnesses who do testify at such
time and place as you may dtrect and
if no protest or objection is then filed,
the proof theretofore submitted, If sat
isfactory in all other respects, may be
5. When final proof Is taken before
an officer not named In the advertise
ment, It may be accepted if otherwise
sufficient, provided the proof is taken
at the time and place designated in
the printed notice, or within ten days
thereafter under the exceptions pro
vided in rule 1 and provided further,
that both the officer advertised to take
such proof and the officer taking same
shall officially certify that no protest
was at any time filed before him
against the cl&imarri's entry.
6. Evidence Of declaration of inten
tion to become a citizen of the United
States or other evidence necessary to
establish citizenship of foreign-born
applicants should be received only
when under the hand and seal of the
proper Officer of the court in which
such papers appear of record. How
ever, where it is shown that the Judi
cial record has been lost or destroyed,
proof of citizenship in such cases may
be established under the rules govern
ing the Introduction of secondary evi
7. When proof Is made before the
register or receiver and the final cer
tificate does not bear the date of proof,
the register must indorse on the back
of the final certificate of entry, at the
time of its issuance, a brief statement
of the reason for the delay in issuance
of final papers, the indorsement to be
in each instance signed by the regis
ter. If the delay was caused by fail
ure of applicant to tender the money
or other consideration at the time of
making proof, additional evidence
must be furnished showing that the
claimant had not, at date of certificate,
transferred the land, which evidence
may consist of his affidavit taken be
fore some officer authorized, to admin
ister oaths. In cases where it ap
pears that the delay in issuance of
lnal papers was not the fault' of the
claimant, the proofs being otherwise
regular, the commissioner of the gen
eral landoffice may In his discretion
pass same to patent.
8- When proof Is mjside. before any
officer other than the register or re
ceiver a reasonable time will be al
lowed for the transmission of papers
to the local office, and if a longer In
terval Is shown between date of proof
and date of certificate, If the proof Is
otherwise sufficient and the record
contains no reason for the delay, the
fegister will indorse upon the back
of the final certificate the statement
Hjjuired by rule 7 and If such delay
was the fault of the claimant, require

Coilene Will Put in a New
Course of Study*
Fargo college will have a new
course of study next year. This will
be a commercial course similar to the
one which is to be established In the
high school. For some time commerc
ial subjects have been taught in the
preparatory department but according
to the plans which have just been
completed by the faculty a full four
years' commercial course combining
ail the features of a business educa
tion with preparation for college will
next year be offered to the students.
Bookkeeping, typewriting, stenogra
phy and comriiercial arithmetic will be
taught in this course and particular
stress will be laid on English which
will be made one of the principal fea
It is felt that this new course will
meet the needs of those who desire to
secure a practical education which
will prepare them for business and at
the same time fit them to enter col
lege. The course is to be no Sinecure.
It will be made equally as hard as reg
ular academic courses so that the
students taking it will be as well
equipped mentally when they cdme to
take up college work as those who
have completed any other course.
The college catalogue for the year
1906-7 is now in the Hands of the
printer and will be out in a few days.
It will contain a list of students and
graduates and will, show among other
things an Increase in the number of
students enrolled and a decided in
crease in the number who are taking
regular college work with the inten
tion of graduating, while the number
of special students who aje only tak
ing a few subjects hag materially de
creased. This is hailed by the col
lege authorities as a good sign as they
do not encourage students taking only
one or two subjects except in cases
tohere they are otherwise employed
and are endeavoring to earn their way
