Tho two nets Just tnontlonod re served tho land In tho Pnnhnndlo counties from location undor certifi cates, but set them apart for sale, one halt ot tho receipts to be nppplled to tbo public debt and one-halt to tho school fund. In both ot these acts the county waa spelled Hutching Instead ot Hutchinson. Tho nttornoy general bolds that from the dealgnatlon ot this county In tho acta referred to nnd as found on tbe map, there could be no doubt about the legislature intending to Include Hutchinson county, nnd tbat their Intention should not be thwarted by a clerical orror In misspelling tho tinmo of the count)'. And furthor, that no ouo could have been misled there by. The concluding paragraph of the opinion reads: "Land In this county then, not being subject to location ot certificates at tbe time yon say tbe certificates, as to which you Inquire, woro loeutod, such locations were void, end patents should not Issue." This reveal e nnothor gross ralelnko In one of the land laws nnd serves to cloud titles. The fact of ths clouding ot titles by this mistake la made man ifest In the statement Hint most of the locations In question were iiatented prior to 1SP0. and the question now is, Wlint Is the status of those titles?
