How About ThU is the question always asked by the prudent land buyer. When land' was cheap such a question was seldom asked, and lit tle attention was given to the subject Any justice of the peace or notary was good enough to draw up a deed or mortgage, and abstracts were seldom called for. Consequently the records teem with errors.' Erroneous descriptions, unsealed deeds, mis spelled names, unpaid taxes, uncancelled Judgments, irregular ac knowledgments, failure to state whether grantor was married or single, mortgages and liens .paid but not satisfied on the rec ord, are a few of the errors constantly . occurring in the in vestigation of titles. Loan companies and careful buyers will not take defective titles or buy a law suit. The time to have these defects remedied is now while it can be done. This subject is so closely connected with the selling of real estate that we have installed an abstract department, and are in a position to make reliable abstracts of title. PLAT OF WALLOWA COUNTY IN OFFICE. IMPORTANT LAND OFFICE DECISION SQUATTERS WHO MAKE BONA FIDE RESIDENCE WILL NOT BE OUSTED. Attorney D. W. Sheihan has re ceived the decision of Register Frank tC. Bramwell of the U. S. land office at La Grande, by which his client, Fln'ey M. Newlon, a squatter In township 4 n, 41, Is given preference over Guy M. Byrkit, who made a tim ber and stone entry last September ' when the land was thrown open" to settlement. The decision is of the utmost Im portance, and will be hailed with Joy by the 30 or 40 squatters who settled In the township prior to Sep tember 15 last, and have made homes and other Improvements. The gist of the decision is that lan settled on by bona fide settlers, whether It is chiefly valuable for timber or not, U not subject to en try under the timber and stone act. The language of Register Bramwell is as follows: That the land embraced in the en try was occupied, inhabited and con tained improvements belonging to the protes'.ant in this case, Flnley M. Newlon, when entry was made there'or by prote3tee, Guy M. Byrkit. 2. That the land was not subject to entry under the Timber and Stone Act on September 15, 1908, it being shown that the land was oc cupied, inhabited and contained im provements which did not belong to the applicant. The Newlon-Byrklt case was heard last December and was one of the hardest fought In the history of the La Grande office. D. W. Shea han of this city was attorney for Homesteader Newlon, while C. H Finn of La Grande represented Byr kit. The taking of testimony requir ed two weeks time, 29 witnesses be ing examined, and the testimony tak ing over 400 pages of manuscript. The decision of Register Bramwell takes 10 type written pages. While each separate case will have to be heard singly, the decision gives a marked precedence: It recognizes the rights of squatters who are legiti mate in their development work. If all squatters who have filed protests produce evidence as convincing as did Newlon, that actual development and improvement took place on the land on which they squatted, there seems to be little hope for the timber men who made the filings. However, the Improvements must have been made with intent to make that particular tract a bona fide home. There Is an appeal from the de cision of the register, but unless made in 30 days or set aside by the general land of.loe commissioner, Bramwe'-l's decision stands as final. Another Important Desision. Another important decision by Reg ister Bramwell, in which however, the timber entry-man was victori ous, was handed down Saturday. It was the case of Frederick F. Metz lor, pro'testant, vs, A. B. O'Brien, protestee, involving O'Brien's timber entry on the e ne and e se of the same township, 4 n., 41. His filing was contested by Metzler, Your Title? not on prior squatter's rights, but on the grounds that the land was more valuable for its agricultural purposes than for its timber. Tire register, tn handing down hi 3 decision cites the fact that the preponderance of evi dence in the case showed the land in question 13 mora valuable for its timber than for agricultural purposes.
