DErARTMK"T op the Interior. (jESERAL Land Office. Washington, 1). ('., June 2J, lh87. ) Registers and Receivers, United States Land Office. Gentlemen: The first section of ths act of March 3, 1877, entitled "An act to provide for the sale of desert lands in certain States and Territories," provides for the reclamation of such lands by ''conducting water upon tho same." The second sec tion provides "that all lands ex clusive of timber lands and mineral lauds which will not, without arti ficial irrigation, produce some ag ricultural crop, shall be deemed desert lands within the moaning of this act," and the third section provides that '"the determination of what may be considered desert land shall be subject to the decision and regulation of the Commissioner of the General Land Olfice." It is therefore prescribed as fol lows: 1st. Lands bordering upon streams, lakes or other natural bodies of water, or through or up on which there is any river, stream, arroyo, lake, pond, body of water, or living spring, are not subject to entry under the desert laud law until the clearest proof of their desert character is furnished. 2d. Lauds which producenative grasses sufficient iu quantity, -if unfed by grazing animals, to make an ordinary crop of hay in usual seasons are not desert lands. 3d. Lands which will produce an agricultural crop of anv kind, in amount to make tho cultivation reasonably remunerative, are not i desert. 4;h. Lr.nds containing sufficient moisture to produce a natural growth of trees, are not to bo class ed as desert lauds. 1. Tho amount of land which may bo eutered by any one person under the destrt land act cannot exceed one section, or six hundred and forty acres, which must be in compact form, and no person can mako more than one entry. 2. Desert land entries are not assignable, and the transfer of such entries, whether by deed, con tract, or agreement, vitiates the entry. An entry made in the in terest or for tho benefit of any other person, firm or corporation, or with int' n1: that the title shall bo conveyed to any other person, firm, or corporation, is illegal. 3. The price at which lands may be entered under the desert land act is the same as under the pre emption law, viz: Single mitiimum lands at $1.25 per acre, and double minimum lauds at 2.50 per acre. (Section 2357, U. S. ltev. Stat ) 4. A party desiring to avail him self of the privileges of the desert laud act must file with the Register and Receiver of the proper district land office a declaration, under oath, setting forth that tho appli cant is a citizen of tho United States or that he has declared his intentions to become such. Iu the latter case a duly certified copy of his declaration of iuteu'iou to be come a citizen must bo presented and filed. It must also be set up that tho applicant has not pre viously exercised tho right of entry under the provisions of this act, and that ho intends to reclaim the tract of land applied for by con ducting water thereon within three years from date of his declaration. The declaration must also contain a description of the land applied for, by legal sub-division if sur veyed, or if unsnrveyod as clearly as possible without a survey, by giving with as much clearness and precision as possibio tho locality of tho tract with reference to the already established lines of survey, or to known and conspicuous land marks, so as to admit of its bi-iug readily identified when t''e lines of survey come to be extended. 5. Your attention is called to the terms of this declaration as pro vided by existing regulations I I'lUiu 1 271 1, which are such as cloths and blanks for self measurement to any address. SHIRTS, require a personal knowledge by the entrymen of lands intended to be entered. The required affidavit cannot be made by an agent nor upon information and belief and you will hereafter reject all appli cations in which it does not appear that the entryman made the aver ments contained in the sworn dec laration upon his own knowledge derived from a personal examina tion of the lands. The blank in the declaration, to wit: "that I be came acquainted with said land by ," must be filled in with a full statement of the facts of his acquaintance with the land and how ho knows its character as al leged. Said declaration must be corroborated by the affidavits of two reputable witnesses who are acquainted with the land and with the applicant, and who must clearly state their acquaintance with the premises, and the facts as to con dition and situation of the land upon which they base their judge ment (Form i 074 ) G. Applicants and witnesss must in all cases state their place of actual residence, their business or occupations, and their post-office addresses. It is not sufficient to name the couuty and State or Ter ritory where a party livos, but the town or city must be named, and if a residence is in a city the street and number must be given. 7 The declaration and corrob orating affidavits may be made be fore either a Register or Receiver of the land district in which the lauds are situated, or before the judge cr clerk of a court of record of the county iu which the lands are situated, and if the lands are in an unorganized couuty then the affidavit may be made iu an adja cent couuty. The depositions of applicant and witnesses in making fiual proof must be taken in the same manner; and the authority of any practice or regulation per mitting original or final desert land affidavits to be executed be fore any other officer then those named above, is hereby revoked. Tho affidavits of applicant and witnesses must in every instance either of original application or final proof, be made at the same time and place and before the same officer. 8. When proof of tho character of the land has been made as above required to the satisfaction of the district officer, the applicant will pay the Receiver the sum of twenty five cents per acre where the land is singlo minimum, and fifty cents per acre where tho land is double minimum. The Register will re ceive and file his declaration, and the Register and Receiver will jointly issue, in duplicate, a certi ficate (Form 4199) acknowledg ing the receipt of the twenty-five or fifty cents per acre, as the case may be, and tho filing of the dec laration One of these duplicates will bo delivered to applicant; the other will bo retained by the Reg ister and Receiver with the dec laration and proof. They will bear a number according to tho order in wnich the certificate was issued. The Register will keep a record of the cirtiticates issued, showing tho number, date, amount paid, name of applicant, and description of tho laud applied for in each case, and, in addition, he will note the same upon his plats and records as in cases of ordinary entry. At the end of each month he will, with his regular returns, f orwad to the Gen eral Land OSice an abstract of the" declarations filed and certificates issued under that act during tho mouth, accompanying the same with declarations aud proofs filed and tho retained copy of certificate in each case. Tho Receiver will also account for the money re ceived under this act in the usual form. 9. Surveys of desert laud claims cannot be made in advance of tho regular progress of the public sur veys. After a township has been surveyed the claim must be ad justed to the lines the survey. "A UNDERWEAR. .TC; TEXASi 10. Persons making desert laud entries must acquire a clear right to the use of sufficient water for the purpose of irrigating the whole of the laud, and of keeping it per manently irrigated. A person who makes a desert land entry before ho has secured a water right, does so at his own risk; and as one en- i i , i i iry exuausis ins rignt oi Diry. such right cannot be restored or again exercised because of failure' to obtain water to irrigate the land selected by him. 11. The source and' volume of the water Bupply, how acquired: and how maintained, the carrying" capacity of the ditches, and the' number and length of all ditches' on each legal sub-division of the land, must be specifically shown.- state in fall what has been done in the matter of reclamation and iro. provement, and by whom, and must each answer fully and of their own personal knowledge, the ques tions propounded in the final proof depositions. They must state specifically whether they at any time saw the land effectually irri gated, for without knowledge thus derived, tho fact of reclamation re-" mains a. matter of conjecture. (Case of Charles H. Schick, 5 L. D, 151.) 12. Tho whole tract and each legal sub-Jivision for which proof is offered must be actually irrigat ed. If there are some high points' or uneven surfaces which are prac' tically not susceptible of irrigation, the nature, extent, and arear of such spots must be fully stated. In this connection, the right of the' water used, the quantity of it, the manner of its distribution, and. tho permaneuco of the supply are all to be takeu into consideration. (Case of George Ramsey, 5 L. D., 120.) 13. Before final proof shall here after be submitted by any person claiming to enter lands under the1 desert land act, such person wilt be required to file a notice of in tention to make such proof which shall be published in the same manner as required in homestead and pre-emption case3. 14. Contests may be instituted against desert land entries for il legality or fraud in the inception of the entry, or for failure to com ply with the law after entry, or for a'iy sufficient cause affecting Le legality or validity of the claim. Contestants will be allowed a pre ference right of entry for thirty days after notice of the cancella tion of the contested entry, in the same mauner as in homestead and pre-emption cases, and the Regis ter will give the same notice and be entitled to the same fee for notice as in other cases. 15. When relinquishments of desert laud entries are filed in the local land office, the entries will b& conceled by the Register and Re ceiver in the same manner as ia homestead, pre-emption, aud timber-culture casos, under the first section of the act of May 14, 1880. (21 Stat. 140.) 10. Nothing herein will be con strued to have retroactive effect in cases where the official regulations: of this Department in force at ther dato of entry were complied with AVm. A. J. Sparks', June 28, 1887: L. Q. C.
