The incorporators took in over $6,(00

Other decisions were:
i.:iiui Title la l pin-id
John P. O'Connor, respondent, vs. Jaocb
1. Tile secretary of the interior pos
sesses full power to withdraw public
lands from settlement and market at will,
and when he acts in this respect is is
deemed an act of the president. It seems
to be quite immaterial what may be the
basis of the order of withdrawal or what
public Jand it affects.
2. By the congressional land grant act
of March 3, 3865 (15 Stats. 526), it was made
the duty of the secretary of the interior
—section 7—to withdraw lands in aid of
the grant therein provided for. Subse
quently, by section 5 of the act of con
gress of Sept. 2'J, IS9O (26 Stats. 406), sec
tion 7 was repealed. Held, that this re
peal did not revoke or annul an executive
order, previously made, whereby certain
lands had been withdrawn from the pub
lic domain for the benefit of the court.
.i. By the fifth section of an act of
March 3, 1887 (25 Stats. 556), it was pro
vided that when railroad companies nad
sold lands, as parts of their grants, co
terminus with their constructed lines of
road, to citizens, or to persons whq had
declared their intention to become citizens,
but for some reason those lands were
excepted from the operation of the grants
and could not be conveyed to the com
panies, those citizens, or persons, if "bona
tide purchasers," should have the right to
buy of the government and should there
upon be entitled to patents. Held, that
this section must be construed liberally
with a design to effectuate its object, and
that citizenship, or declaration of Inten
tion to become a citizen, and a bona lide
purchase are the essentials required by I
its terms. Held, further, that the right
of one who purchased land from a rail
road company, prior to the passage of
the act of March 3, 1567, to perfect title
under section 3 of that act, is superior to
the settlement right of another person ac
quired after the passage of said act.
4. Where there has been a long and
uniform course in constructing statute in
a tribunal charged withi the duty of ex
ecuting it, such construction is always
entitled to the most respectful considera
tion by the courts and ought not to be
overruled without cogent reasons.
5. The expression "bona fide purchaser'
is oftentimes used ambiguously and is
construed in various ways. The context
must be examined and the expression con
sidered with reference to its use and the <
connection in which it is found. It may j
mean without fraud or deception; it may
mean without notice of others' rights; it
sometimes signifies honesty of purpose, as
distinguished from bad faith. To be a
bona fide purchaser may, under some cir
cumstances, require the payment of the
consideration, or purchase price, but not
always. In the statute in question the
term "bona fide" was used as the opposite
of "mala fide." Held, in the case at bar,
following the rulings of the appropriate
officers of the land department, that the
plaintiff's grantor, to whom the patent I
was issued, was a bona fide purchaser or
the land in dispute within the meaning of i
said section 5.
6. It is well settled that authority to
hear and determine all questions of fact
arising in the land department of the gen
eral government is exclusively within the ]
control of the appropriate officers of that \
department. The jurisdiction thus con
ferred is judicial in its nature, and the |
decisions of the department officers, when j
acting within their jurisdiction, are final
and conclusive, In the absence of fraud,
or imposition, or mistake.
7. The same rule applies where tho j
question presented to the department of- j
ficials is one of mixed law and fact. Their i
decision is equally as conclusive as to the [
fact involved. Order affirmed.
May Redeem After Disability.
Minnesota Debenture Company, a corpo
lation, appellant, vs. Elmira D. Bean
eta 1.% defendants; Agnes L. Dean et al.,
1. Under section 1603, General Statutes
1^94. providing that minors, insane per
sons and others under disability, having
an estate in or lien on land sold for
taxes may redeem the same -within two
years after such disability shall cease,
held that such right of redemption is
given thereby to a minor who has either
a vested or contingent remainder in lands
sold for taxes, and that his right to re
deem may be asserted in an action
against him to determine adverse claims.
2. The rule above stated in favor of
minors under disability applied to the
facts in this case, wherein an interme
diate life estate was vested in the life
tenant, with remainder to his heirs, and
upon the failure of such heirs thsr. to
the heirs of a third person then living;
held that the remainder to the heirs of
the life tenant was vested while the re
mainder over to the heirs of the third
person w?as contingent, under section 4374.
General Statutes 1894, and that both
classes of heirs have a present estate
in the lands which may be adjudged in
an action against them by the owner of
a tax title to determine adverse claims.
Judgment affirmed. —Lovely, J.

Philip E. Brown et al., appellants, vs.

1. Title 3, chapter 34, General Statutes
IS7B, lb. General Statutes 1894, relates to
"corporations other than those for pe
cuniary profit." and the inclusion of cem

members, cannot, in this state, be adapt
ed to the acquisition of profits and emol
uments by the directors and incorpo
3. A cemetery association so organized,
having sold lots as burial places which
have been appropriated for that purpose,
is a trustee for the benefit of those who
lawfully make proper use of such lots,
and is in duty bound to account to its
beneficiaries—the lot owners—for mon
eys received for the sale of such lots
and the manner in which it has disbursed
4. The directors of such a cemetery as.
sociatlon are not authorized to with
hold money received for lots from the
treasury of the corporation or treat it
as their private property; it is subjected
to a public use in which the lot owners
have a private and personal interest not
common to the general public.
5. The denial by the members of such
organization of any trust relation to the
lot owners who have buried their dead
in the cemetery and a refusal to account
for moneys received and appropriated by
them, authorized judicial interference to
compel the recognition of the trust rela
tions and the restoration of such funds to
the treasury for the proper improvement
and maintenance of the burial grounds.
6. Upon demurrer to a complaint it is
held to show a cause of action arising
from the illegal conversion of trust funds
of a cemetery association by its directors
and to justify an examination into the use
of its funds to establish the trust which
is denied with power in the court to grant
such further equitable relief as the nature
of facts disclosed require. Order reversed.
Xo Title Transferred.
Sophia J. Hoyt, appellant, vs. Arthus S.
Chapin et al., respondent.
1. The provision of section 1616, G. S.
1804. requiring the payment of current
taxes due upon lands forfeited to the
state at a tax sale under that section is
mandatory and the insuance of a tax
deed conveying title by the state through
the county auditor without the payment
of taxes due, though not delinquent, at
the time it is executed transfers no title
to the purchaser; following Security
Trust company vs. Yon Heydersteadt, 64
2. Security Trust Company vs. Yon
Heydersteadt distinguished from London
& Northwestern, etc., company vs. Gib
son. 77 Minn. 394, and held that the for
mer case was not ever ruled or modified
by the latter. Order affirmed.
Description of Delinquent in ml.
Edward J. Doherty, appellant, vs. The
Beal Estate Title Insurance and Trust
Company of Philadelphia, as adminis
trator of the estate of Augustus Boyd,
deceased, et al., respondent.
1. The description of land in the pub
lished notice of sale for delinquent taxes
is sufficient if it is calculated to enable
a person of ordinary intelligence to Iden
tity such land with reasonable certainty,
following decisions of this court referred
to in the opinion.
2. The rule above stated applied in the
construction of characters claimed to be
similar to abbreviations any symbols pro
vided for in section 1G27, G. S. 1894. and
hedd that certain dots or periods were not
essential parts of the description in a
published tax list nor used in compliance
with the statute referred to, for the rea
son that the entire description including
the cross heading immediately preceding
such characters and other uses of the
same therein forbids their significance as
descriptive of the property.
3. Held further, that within the facts
in this case, a statement In the sixty-day
redemption notice provided for In sec
tion 1054, G. S. 1894, to the effect that the
sheriff's fees for the service of the notice
would be returned with proof of service
did not invalidate the notice.
4. The payment of taxes delinquent at
the time of the Issuance of th« certificate
of sale is essential to its validity, follow

Household Effects Are

James R. Hickey, state representative
from this city, has just returned from a
trip to Fort Buford, Mont., and in con
versation with The Globe last even
ing expressed the amazement he had ffelt
at the general Western movement among
homeseekeTs, evidences of which he saw
all along the route he had traveled. He
"I traveled over the Great Northern
road, and at every point from Grand
Forks as far as I went 1 saw evidences of
this great Western movement. I don't
helieve any of us here, unless it may be
the railroad men, have had any idea of
It, and if anyone had tried to tell me I
would not have believed him, but it Is
certainly something enormous. The sec

northern tier of counties in North Da
kota and Montana between the Great
Northern road and the Canadian line,
and the railroads are simply crippled with
the volume of business. Every siding
all along the route is choked up wl*:\

all kinds is delayed because of that
business. The land office of this dis

MEANS BETTER COWS
DAIRY COMMISSIONER APPROVES
THE PROrX>SED NATIONAL.
MINNESOTA WILL SUPPOKT IT
Constant Competition the Only-
Thing Which Will Insure Sys
tematic Development of
Dairy Commissioner McConnell has
given his hearty approval to the pro
posed national dairy cow test at the fct.
Louis exposition, the plans of which were
detailed in yesterday's Globe.
'I approve not only of this project, but
of all propositions of a like nature. The
influence of such contests are always for
good. The great value of these dairy con
tests does not lie in the immediate effect
they have. In the mere prizes won. and
the satisfaction of the exhibitors. Their
greatest importance consists of the friend
ly rivalry they promote, of the publicity
which they give to the dairy interests,
and of the impetus they give to general
education along dairy lines. I do not be
lieve that their importance can be over
estimated. At the world's fair at Chicago,
when the Jerseys captured all the prizes,
the immediate result was that the breed
ers of Guernseys and Hoisteins and other
breeds, becoming jealous of the complete
supremacy of the Jersey, started right
in with the determination to outstrip the
breeders of Jerseys. The result was that
there was great improvement in all
breeds,and at the r.ext contest the Guern
seys came out ahead.
These contests always have this effect
of stimulating the rivalry between breed
ers, which is the only thing that will as
sure continued improvement arm develop
'"That is the main value of our state fair
contests. When one county walks off
with the palm, one year, other counties
make more determined efforts next time
that they may not be discredited by a
too gn-at discrepancy between themselves
and other counties.
"Minnesota's great dairy record and
reputation has stimulated other states to
overtake us. lowa is making most won
derful strides In this direction. Tnat is
a good thing for lowa. It is also a good
thing for Minnesota if we are spurred by
It to improve also to maintain our su
"I hope the proposed scheme for a na
tional dairy cow test will be carried
through. It would give a great boom to
the dairy business throughout the coun
try. It would be a great educational
gain and as a result we should see a
competition between states which would
greatly increase the general average in
every state. It is a business proposition.
Competition is what brings results. It
must be so in the dairy business as in
every other. Hence I say the value of
'this contest wouid be infinitely more than
its cost to the states. By all means I j
shall lend my hearty support to the .dea
and hope Minnesota will have its just
share in th.c making of this contest.
"We could have made a far more cred- |
itable showing at Buffalo if we had sent :
expert inspectors' throughout the Btate
to coach the farmers, to pick out th-
best cows, and to select only the very
best to be sent to the exposition. I >ue
principal advantage of this plan is that
it means that every state will be repre
sented by its best, and every state has ,ac
rig-ht to be judged by its best in this aa
in everything else."
