An interesting decision was lately ren dered by Commissioner Sparks of tue gen eral land office in the matter of the pre emptionclaim of a man named Onillete to certain land in the Bitter Root valley. Onillette was an old ,naKhot able to make a home for iImself eelsewher. Heorigin :aly made decl~ary statement o.. 804 -for lad i. the ,Bitter :-Roo valley and, witlHout everlivnig upoit, mae deolar atory tatement No. 88 for land in the sae towneship. Upontis he ettle and ona lanR l Z r pr eeting ooes tocultivaton on c u pation and improvement. However it ap peared on record that Ouillette had made a former pre-emption claim, namely No. 304, and by the law he was prohibited from making any other or subsequent claim un der the pre-emption act. The local office, therefore, held No. 388 for cancellation and, No. 304 being gone from him, the - claimant was entirely knocked out of any claim. The facts in the case, including those relating personally to the claimant, were certified up to the general land office and, upon consideration, Commissioner Sparks directed that D. S. No. 383 be can celled and that D. S. No, 304 be amended to embrace the land originally claimed under No. 388 and that the claimant be permitted to make final proof on said land. 1 Thus Ouillette gets the land upon 'which ie mfide his hromw and th law-if not rig idly complied with, is at least not outrag ed. It was a nice thing to do and those who have set Commissioner Sparks down as the inveterate persecutor of settlers may be inclined by this instance, to change their minds.--Independent.
