A WHOLESOME DECISION.
The general land office decided,
in a case carried up to it from a
Western state, that in order to
obtain title to a homestead claim,
residence upon it must have been
good faith and in actual, not
technical compliance with the
terms of the law. It is a thousand
pities that this doctrine was notCity
announced and enforced long
ago. Had it been the United
States would not be nearly at the
end of its great supply of free
land and homes for the people,
but would be able to accommo
date all comers for generations.
There is probably no series of
laws that have been subject to
such shameless abuse as those
under which title to public lands
may be obtained. The home
stead law, the pre-emption law
and the desert land and timber
culture acts were all drawn in
the interest of the honest settler.
But it may actually be doubted
whether he was as often a bene
ficiary as was the capitalist and
land speculator. Claims were
taken up in the most barefaced
mockery of the law, title passed
where there was scarcely a pre
tense that it had been earned,
and land companies gathered in
great areas of public domain
through agents who were paid to
locate claims and transfer them
for a modest consideration.
The case referred to was one
typical of the common practice
throughout the west. The claim
ant had gone to the land and
erected a small shack. In that
he had placed a few articles of
rude furnishing and some prim
itive cooking utensils. There he
spent some days and nights dur
ing a portion of the year when it
would not be unpleasant. The
remainder of the period was put
in in the neighboring cities, some
farmers near by being hired to
do the minimum amount of culti
vation to keep up appearances.
This is the claim,that has re
cently been thrown out and we
venture to say that it is, as good
a claim as that under which title
has passed to millions of acres of
public land. The swindle is still
going on, and news of this ruling
has created much consterna
tion. We hope that the general
land office will b enabled to hunt
down and punish every similar
case of fraud that at least our
remaining public lands may be
held for those who honestly
desire to go and live upon thorn.
