In case a discrepancy appears be tween the proof of military serviceTsub- mitted, and the records of the war de rartment, the proper practice is to al low the claimant a reasonable time to explain the discrepancy, and if he is unable to do so,- he should then be re quired to show sufficient actual resi dence on the land to complete the re quisite period HEARINGS ORDERED BY THE DEPARTMENT circular "of may 15, 1889.

M.. Stephenson, for oongrefrs. They give no figures to prove the- claim and the publio aVe somewhat at a loss to know on vhat it is based. The majorities for each can didate are given below by count'es, from which it appears that Stephenson has been elected by over 1)00 plurality. These', figures will not be. materially changed by the. official count. It i claimed that some bogus tickets wcro voted in Iron-county. Although there Were two or throe hundred snch ballots cast' for Stephenson we do not Bee howi tbe result would be changed by throw ing them out. . It has booa hinted that Stephenson always voted iu congress for ousting democrats whenever their seats were contested by . republicans, snd that to give Sam a dose of his own medicine would be about the right thing to do. So far as Sam is . concerned it probably would ; bnt twp wrongs dont make one right, and if the democrats are ( not going to furnish better- ex amples of justice what is the . use of republicans voting with them' for a purer administration?, By being just the democrats mignt lose a temporary advantage,' but it will pay Jthem better m the end: ' -.'-, COrXTIKS.

' As to Holding Back Lands. A cae of considerable interest to homesteaders and to lawyers ai well wa- on trial before Register Royce and Receiver Mends in the local land office yesterday. It involves questions as to the exact date when the act of congress forfeiting the Ontonagon & Brule River railroad grant went into effect and whether the register and receiver of the local land office erred in not receiving applications for entry previous to May 1, 1890. . The act forfeiting the grant was sign ed by President Cleveland on March 2 J 889. It appears from the evidence that on March 5th Georgo Gamble came into the land office and tendered a filing and fees for a tract in the primary limits oi the Ontonagon & Brule River grant. This filing was rejected, apparently because the then register and, receiver had no official information that the forfeiture act had been passed. On March 13th the commissioner of the general land office sent a letter to the local register and receiver, notifying them "of the passage of the act and directing them to advertise for at least 30 days the opening of the lands settlement. On March 7th Edwin Powell appears to have made some settlement on the tract Afterward Gamble also made settlement ' and the question now comes up in a contest be; tween the two. Messrs. Mapea and Maynard appear for Gamble and Messrs, Cochran and Byrne for PowelL In his argument before the register and receiver yesterday Mr. Mapes con tended that the lorfeiture act went into effect from the moment of its signature I bv President Cleveland; that the regis- Hull JCVTOIY, I OU vv lv i UQ Gamble's filing as no officer bad power to suspend ' the operation of a statute ; that havinir made application to file in due form and such application having been erroneously . rejected, Gamble re tained all his rights in the premises; that the refusal of the register and re ceiver to take filings before May 1st was an illegal suspension of the statute and made a favored class of those who could make 'immediate settlement as against those who cdnld not ' The hearing of the case will continue to-day when the other aide will eet its innings.
