Following is a brief synopsis of some of the more important decisions of the interior department rendered during j the last month. The pendency of a contest does not excuse non-compliance with the re quirements of law. Under the law even the preference right secured by settlement duly main tained, is lost unless asserted thru timely entry. The land department having the sole charge of the public lands, sur veyed or unsurveyed, has jurisdiction in determining equitable as well as legal, rights, of parties claiming inter est theiein. The transferee of an unpatcnt >d entry gets no better title than the en tryman had. but lie may protect him self so that he may receive notice of any proceeding against said entry if he files in the local office a notice of such transfer. Until further notice, lands will not be considered as barred from desig nation under tlie enlarged homestead acts simply because they may be em braced in desert land entries if the lands be in all other respects subject to such designation. The fourth section of the act of March 3, 1891, requires the exhibition of a plau of irrigation. The right to the water and its quantity and per manency must also he shown. While the plan adopted may he unusual, yet if it is productive of reclamation it meets the essence of the requirement. The field notes, maps, and plats of the general land office approved by the commissioner are conclusive evi dence of surveys of public lands, and when they show that land is not sur veyed, no other evidence is competent to approve a survey. Land cannot be patented until survey is made and approved. The status of land at, date of appli cation must govern. If not the sub ject of entry for any cause, the appli cation should be rejected. To suspend it would be to give an unfair advant age over other applicants, enabling the applicants to keep ofT intending entrymen and affording opportunity for speculation in government lands. The act of 1880 accorded a success ful contestant the preference right or entry. The acceptance of any appli cation for the land during such period of preferential right rests alone upon departmental regulations. Such appli cations have been permitted in order to prevent, as far as possible, any at tempted disposition of the preference right accorded to the statute. It fol lows, however, that any such suspend ed application only springs into exist ence upon the failure of the success ful contestant to avail himself of the preference right. The maps and plats on file in the general land office are conclusive upon all persons as to the proper descrip tion of public lands. In case of a re survey, the final platting and desig nation of portions of sections must be conformed. Whatever may have been the description given in the original entry before resurvey, the position on the ground of a desert land entry can be conformed to resurvey, at least ap proximatelv. The patent when issued must follow the lines of survey as finally settled. By no other means can certainty of description and title be attained. • I AGED RESCUER DRAGS DROWNING MAN FROM WATER BULLET IN HEART REWARD at TAYLORPORT.
