. Wallis,
Commis
ome
made ;
encrai
su nier of Bear Lake county, regard- '
ing a homestead entry and later a 1
desert entry. Wallis has been
here several days. He is a mem-;
be- of the Budge faction, who are
at enmitj with the Rich-Bagle;
faction. Wallis alleges that Editoi
Harrisof the Montpelier Examiner, :
a Democratic paper, had tried to i
discredit him, but that the late story ,
originated with the Rich-Bagley , tor
crowd. Wallis today succeeded in j
satisfying the land office and was \
vindicated of the charges.
The above appeared in the Boise
Statesman last week as a special
from Washington.
We know nothing of the desert
entry business, but the homestead
proposition we are perfectly familiar
with, and since Wallis has brought |
us into the cotroversy, we give
below the facts that caused him, in
part, to be summoned to Washing- j G
on.
O.
of
I
In 1 .900 George Moore filed a
homestead entry on what is known
as Giveout ranch. After living
there for a couple of years or more
he, in August, 1902, made applica
tion to commute his entry and prove
up. The proof was made before
Jas. H. Wallis, United States Com
missioner, and Chas E. Harris,
the writer of this, and John S.
Heggie, appeared as Mr. Moore's
After being asked a few
questions, the entryman and his
witnesses signed some papers, and
Wallis went away on the train.
Both Harris and Heggie stated
absolutely that Moore had only
witnesses.
hved on the ranch about two years,
and all present understood that it
! was a commuted proof that Mr.
Moore was making. Before leay
j mg the office (Bagiev s) \\ al is told
! the writer that Moore could send
: h '- s t0 bim at Rexburg, and
then he would send the paper,-, to
j the land office. Mr. Moore was
1,ns >' looking alter the , tar va e>
: Mage line, so he left the $- ( )0 with
the writer, and tue latter sent it to
Goe. A. Robethan, receiver of the
land office.
A short time after the writer
received a letter from Mr. Robethan
saying that the Geo. Moore proof
had been filed and that Wallis had
iusmicted the laild uffici;ils t0 take
$ 7.25 (the fee on a regular five year
j ' ^ q{ the $20()|and hold the
1 ^ alance jp 19 2. 7 5, to his, (Wallis)
| credit, to be checked against with
f ut u Te land proofs . This didn't
k)ok right lo Mr Robethan, so he
l 4-<"\ T-Iorric wVlQt \\7n11i<* IlflH
j itnesses
j wrote to Harris what Wallis had
said, and he further asked if Moore
knew that under the proof submitted
his land office fee was only $7.25.
Then it became known to Moore
and his two witnesses, for tbe first
time, that Wallis had submitted a
five year proof instead of a com
muted proof, as the entryman and
!
!
had intended
swear to.
swear
Tbe rfriter immediately answered
the receiver of the land office, that
the Moore proof was a commuted
one and that the $200 belonged 10
the government; that Moore didn't
owe Wallis anything, as lie had
paid the commissioner his fees at ;
the time the proof was taken.
Things were beginning to get
pretty well tangled up, for shortly
after Wallis arranged to take a new
proof for Mr. Moore, coming all the
way from Rexburg to Montpelier,
and charging the entryman nothing
for bis work. This proof was sub
mitted by Walk > as a ' 'commuted
In the meantime thé
five -ear proof" had gone into the
ir,<l vhen, four months
followed by a "com
proof
depaitment
later, it wa
muted proof," by the same man on
the same piece of land, the land
departmentdeuia: .let. some explan
ation, and h evidently looked to
Moore and his witnesses to do the
explaining. Thereupon, on behalf
of these three parties,
Attorney Chalmers, at Elackfoot
to take the matter up. This he
wrote to
did and Mr. Moore and his wit
nesses made affidavit to the facts 111
tbe case, and when this reached the
department in Washington, it was
up to Wallis to do the explaining.
What he told Commissioner Rich
ds to secure his • -vindication
we do not know or do we care. •
know the matter has been hanging
ear and a half,
fire for nearly a .
and Mr. Moore was only this week,
notified that he could now obtain
his patent.
The above are the facts as the
writer knows them, and if, in at
tempting to get th.*e . angle straight
ened out we have '"discredited"
Wallis lie will have to U at it!
that way. We are frank to say
that the nn-.v r, '-.figment,

Hon. Frank Pyke came over from
