TO CUT OUT LAND LOCATORS UNCLE SAM ISSUES ORDERS FOR NEW FORM IN LANO LOCATIONS. AID STATE SETTLEMENT UNDER NEW RULE REGISTRARS AND RECEIVERS MUST PREPARE PAPERS. Denver. —A new order Issued b) Commissioner Rnlliuger of tbv General Land Office bus gone Into effect. It requires registrars and receivers of all United Slates land offices to prepare all applications to make entries and filings on public land when they are re quested to do so by the applicants This order will Insure greater uccu racy lu papers of this kind nnd bo u saving to the applicants, who have heretofore been required to have theli applications prepared at their owu ex pensc. The effect of the order will bo tc greatly Increase the work of tho clerks in the General l-nnd Office In Denvot und elsewhere. There will be uo in creased salaries nor additions to the force. Tho order, according to reports. Is designed to shut out so-called "stays ter” lawyers, who receive from 81 tc 85 for making out these applications, and who frequently make mistaken caualng endless trouble at Washing ton. Charles M. Krueger, who was foi twenty years chief clerk In the govern ment land office here, says that there are few Instances where settlers have been overcharged. "If the act tiers sre buncoed It Is not by peoplo connected with the govern ment service." says Mr. Krueger, "but by those peoplo who advertise and atylo themselves ’land locators/ Show Wrong Lands. "Their so-csilcd business or profes slan Is to point out nnd show to pros poctlve entrymen the vacant lands sub Ject to entry, for which service a charge, ranging from 825 to 8250 oi more. Is made. In many Instances such locators show settlers lands that are patented, but adjacent to lands In a high state of cultivation. Informing them that such lands can be entered The Bottler being satisfied with the land shown him. closes the deal with the locator, who thereupon gives him tho 'numbers' or a description of land entirely different, but unknown to the purchaser. The settler Is unaware ol tho fact that ho has been buncoed uq til ho attempts to settle upon tho Inn 4 when hu ascertains that the lan* shown him and tho laud entered by him are many mile* apart. "The opportunity for such buncc gamen Is afforded by reason of tho un familiarity of the settler with the nur vcys of public lands. Very few |*cr sons know a 'government corner' when they see it. and further there an- but few of such corner* In place, especial ly on the plains, and tho arid region# which have born used many years as a public range. Corner Marks Destroyed. "These corners have l»een destroyed by stock or by the men using thr range. The reason for the destruction of tho corners Identifying the section#! of land are obvious nnd many. If the I government officials desire. In good faith, to aid and protect prospective ■ settlors on the public domain. It would' necessitate the replacing of lost or de stroyed corners, and better still, pro vide some t>erson. preferably the county surveyor, with authority to of flelnlly locate settlers, within their re spectlve counties, allowing them to col lect a reasonable fee. to he fixed by statute, from the settler properly lo rated."
