Considerable criticism has been made by citizens on the action of the county boatd at the last meeting for giving a tax deed on lot 16, block 25, for the sum of $25 on which over $80 taxes were due, and which lot, with buildings is worth at least $400. We think the board must have made an error in some way. At least four-fifth of the remitted taxes are due the corporation and this school district, and it is a very grave question as to the power of the county board to thus remit collectable taxes due funds over which they have no legal control. It is also doubtful, under the law passed by the last legislature, if the county board have power to grant deeds at all on prop erty on which taxes are delinquent, ex cept through and by the provisions of that law. Though in the case referred to, title was probabily not the object of the purchaser, as the tax deed is equiva lent to a receipt in full for the delinquent taxez. A. 3P. Webster's Claim Langdon, April 12.—W. A. Laidlaw has been engaged during the greater part of this week taking the evidence in a contest which will prove before it is ended to be a remarkable case. About six years ago A. P. Webster filed on a claim north of Easby, in Harvey town ship, and siftce the time of filing appear ed to keep himself inside the homestead laws he is an unmarried man and spent a great deal of his time in other parts of the state, where his relatives reside, but did not neglect to keep in pace with the rest of the settlement so far as improving the land is concerned, as he has brought about 120 acres of the land under a state of cultivation and has that amount now ready for crop, but the house is a very ordinary claim "shanty." About four years ago Websters' chattels were seized under execution, and he then instituted an action against the bondsmen of the then sheriff, Allan Pinkerton, to recover damages, for illegal distress, the suit being finally determined at the last term of District Court in favor of the bonds men. In order to make his case stick it was necessary for Webster to show that he was the head of a family, or acted in that capacity, which he did, been the head of a family somewhere else he was not so in this county, as his dependencies did not reside under his roof on his claim. Attorney Cleary saw the opening that was made by Webster in his evidence betore the district court, in stating that his residence was with his ... friends, and so filed thecontest It is estimated that the tract sfe wbrth 92,500 in hard cash, and there is' no." doubt but that Mr. Webster will be .represented before the land office at' Washington when the matter comes upi for final hearing.—Herald.

Mr. McGreg or is very fond of hunting, and it is quite probable that our state hunter's license law has had considerable influence in his purchase of North Dakota real estate, though Mr. McGregor says not.
