THE I'ltOCEDUJIK NECRSSiRY
to secure homesteads under this laxv must bo
ascertained from the rules and regulations of
the general land oQIce , prescribed to give
force and effect to the general homestead
law of ISO'- ! , and from the essential requisites
and directions laid down by the homestead
laws referred toby section 18 , above quoted.
* The original homestead law confers the
| lomostcad right on "every person who Is at
the head of a family , or who has arrived at
the ago of twenty-one years and is a citizen
Of the United States , or who has Hied his
declaration of Intention to become such , as
required by the naturalization laws. "
Section IB. under consideration , provides
thut the right of honorably discharged Union
soldiers nnd sailors In tha late civil war , us
defined nnd described In sections 2301 nnd
JJJiOj of the revised statutes , shall not bo
abridged. These sections nro here given ,
thut these rights and privileges may bo clear
ly appreciated and the law understood :
wmiii : THE SOI/IHKUS COME IN.
Section 2304. Every private soldier and
ofllcer who has served In the army of the
United States during the recent rebellion for
pluety days , nnd who was honorably dis

the third section of an act approved fobru-
nry ID , 1S03 , nnd every seaman , marine , and
pftlcor who has served In the navy of the
United States , or in the marine corps during
the rebellion for ninety days , and who was
Honorably discharged and has remained loyal
to the government , shall , on compliance with
the provisions of this chapter , as hereinafter
modified , bo entitled to enter upon and
receive patents for a quantity of
public lands not exceeding ICO acres , or ono-
quarter section , to bo taken in compact
form , according to legal subdivision , Includ
ing the alternate reserved sections of public
land along the line of any railroad or other
public work not otherwise reserved or ap
propriated , and other lands subject to entry
under the homestead laws of the United

Tin : poi.pir.its' AUDITIOXAI. .
The advantages these sections present over
the general homestead Jaw mo : 1 , The
privilege of tiling n declaration with thn
register and receiver which will hold a tr.ict
selected in person or by an n guilt , for six
months , without entry , resldenco , or cultiva
tion. It has been held by thu secretary
Of the Interior that the soldier must
make bis entry and establish his residence
within the six months from the date of his
flcchirutlon papers. 3. The right of making
final proof before the end of the usual llvo
years' ' residence , at least onu year's actual
unna lldoiosldcnco and cultivation of the
iinmeMctul U required of soldiers nnd sailors.
U'ho soldiers' additional homestead lav ; gives
the right to enter HO much land as will make
100 acres , where an entry for a less quantity
\vas inudo prior to Juno ! M , 1871 ; but con-
prom has recently exloi.dud the benefit of
this act to every homesteader without regard
to date of original entry. '
No land scrip of auy kind can bo issued in
Oklahoma.
Thu widow of a soldier , if unmarried , erIn
In case of hur death or marriage , hi * minor
orphan children become * entitled to his
rights and benefits under tlio homestead
law. To Buetira the uliilm they must strictly
comply with the requirements of the law.
TUB ACT , OITNINII OKI.U1UMA
to nottlenient further provides : That any
person who having attempted to , but for
ony cuusa failed to secure u tltlo lu fee to n
bomostoiid under existing laws , or who made
entry under what is known as the commuted
provision of the homestead law , shall bo
qualified to make u homestead entry upon
nald lands. This Is ono of the most Import
ant uliiiioca of the entire net , for It brings the
Ijniiost sooliiu- after a homo In Oklahoma In
direct conflict and competition .with the
professional land shark , and confer * unde
served credit upon this latter olim. U says
to Ar 11. that if you have made an entry un
der the homestead law , mid suld your relin-
quUhmont for uny sum of money , you maj
fake another claim in Oklahoma , or if you
abandoned your entry and it was cancelled
under an honoot contest , you may likewise
Iiivo the privilege of selling or leaving another -
other claim there ; and ovou Ifjou have re
oclvcd. under tha homestead law , 160 ncros
of land , you may have the opportunity of do-
Driving sotno man of a homo In Oklahoma ,
who has never yet received the slightest bon-
oflt from the homestead laxv. The schooled
observer finds himself unable to appreciate
such generosity as that , at the hands of con
gress , and till * action explains why there
nro 60,000 claimants for the 10,000 quarter
sections of land in the reservation.
Under the homestead law n light to n
claim is Inlatcd cither by settlement upon it
or by entry for It made at the local land of
fice.
Tnr. r.sTiir OP TUB CLAIM
In constructive notice to all the world that it
lias been taken for a homestead and is no
longer subject to entry , while an actual set
tlement upon the land serves the same pur *
| ) oso. Hut the settlement must bo
jf such a character as to Identify
the claimant with the land nnd impart nddl-
tlonal value to It , The ontryman has six
months , from data of his entry , to establish
tils resilience on the land , while again , the
actual settler must make his claim of record ,
[ > y entering the land , within ninety days
from the date of his settlement. For Illus
tration : Say that A U , and U I ) , on the ! J2r < l
dav of April , enter the land office at Guthrto
it the same tlino nnd present to the register
their application for the northeast quarter of
section six , township 100 , range sixty. What
is to bo donol The applications nro simulta
neous and the right of entry should bo sold
to the highest bidder. If , however , there is
any difference between the terms of the
applications then the "llrst in time Is the
first In right , " nnd first applicant will hold
Lha land. But in the evening of that day.
\vhllo A M Is making his entry at the land
oftlcc , O 1) was making his sottlomant upon
the land : now , when O D offers his entry
papers ho is told by the register that the land
lias already been entered by A 1) ) , and that
ns two entries cannofbo made for the siimo
claim , ho will have to reject his application.
3 D then alleges that ho segregated the land
jy his settlement bcforo A U did so by his
entry. Again In this case "tho llrst in time
will bo
THE FinST IN UIOIIT , "
and the register nnd the re
ceiver will have to order n hcnrinc
that this issue of fact may bo legally and
equitably decided. An aggrieved party has
thirty days within which to appeal from the
orders of registers and receivers and sixty
days within which to appeal from the com
missioner of the general hind ofllco to the
secretary of the Interior. H Is perfectly
evident that under the above circumstances ,
t would bo bettor for A. 13. nnd C. 1) . to
; ompromiso their honest differences by each
taking half of the claim than to engage lu
expensive litigation. This can bo done by
, ho ontryman rellngulshhiij SO acres for the
benefit of the actual settler , who , thereupon ,
makes his entry for the samo.
Does the law require the continuous pros-
: nco of the homesteader upon his land ) This
s an important question for Imperative
icccssity will require many settlers to leave
.heir homes this summer to obtain the means
with which to Improve their land nnd keep
, ho wolf from their doors. Having once gene
ipon the claim with the intent to muko It his
lomo nnd having shown the intout by
actually
KSTAIir.ISIUNO A ItESinRS'Cli ON THE LAND
.ho honest settler can leave it for the pur
pose of making n living or to meet the
axtgcnclcs of business life. Under
iheso circumstances ho leaves with
Lho Intent to return to the land
nnd this intent makes it his homo.
An nbscnco of six months , however , from
Ills claim raises a presumption of abandon
ment nnd the claim is subject to a contest for
this cause. Hesldcnco cannot bo established
and maintained by proxy. Meagre Improve
ment and occasional visits to a , claim do not
establish nor maintain a residence. One
must take the land in good faith for a homo
and for a farm and must occupy and must
use It as such. This requirement of the law
Is easy for nn honest farmer to comply with
whllo the land-grabber llnds it exceedingly
annoying and difllcult. There Is no provision
in the act of congress under which town sites
can bo legally located in Oklahoma and the
sale of town lots to Innocent parties is a
flagrant fraud. There Is no machinery In
Oklahoma , nor will thcro bo until provided
by congress , through which the town site
section of the law can bo made to operate.
The homesteader should know accurately
the description of the claim on which ho
settles ; that his pr.pors presented to the local
land office are absolutely correct and then
should be prepared , If necessary , to defend
his rights before the general land ofllco and
the secretary of the Interior. This is all that
ho can do for himself and all that cau bo
done for him.

The attendance at Mnnntror Ingram'a
bench show yesterday was very largo ,
considering the weather , and of all the people
ple who wcro there , it is safe to say not a
slnglo person wont away dissatisfied , The
display In rare nnd beautiful dogs surpasses
anything of the kind over seen in this part
of the country , nnd a half-hour spent there
Is a half-hour profitably disposed of , Indeed.
The arbiters wore appointed yesterday af

the last day , when the prlres will also h/t
awarded. The attcndanca of Indies and
children was very large , nnd it would
bn difficult for thorn to find n
more pleasant or interesting resort.
Tncro are splendid specimens of dogs here
of nil classes and strains , and the opportunity
afforded to study their respective points and
characteristics is u line ono.
In the absence of n kennel club In Omaha ,
or oven a sporting contingent who cared to

most admirably too ho has succeeded. To
suppose that ho Is to do all this for the glory
there is In It , Is idiotic. Ho Is the only man
in the city who has sought to give an Impe
tus to the breeding of fine dogs In Omaha ,
and in fact is about the only man thoroughly
qualified to engineer such an undertaking ,
and the lovers of the genus cnnluo nro lib

I was wounded in thq legal the battle
of Stone Rtvor. Dec. , aiat , 1802. My
blood was poisoned 'from the olToots of
the wound , and the leg swelled to double
its natural size , and remained so for
many years. The poison extended to
my whole system , ana I suffered a thou
sand deaths. Nothing did mo any good
until I took Swift's Specilic , which took
the poison out ot my blood , and enabled
me to tool myself a man again. S. S. S.

Catarrh in.Childron.
Our little boy stokes , now cloven
years old , had catarrh from the time ho

heavy , and a constant discharge from
the nose. Ho had moro or le&s treat

bcnolit. Wo gave him Swift's Specilic ,
and it hoon cured him sound and well.
This was four years ago , and there has

How the Motor Company 1'nys for
Tonrlnc tip I'nvoincnts.
The Omaha Motor company yesterday
paid the city treasuier $2,470.82 , which
amount , the city engineer estimates , was
the original cost of the two blocks of pavinc
on Sixteenth street on which the company
asked a permit to extend its lines.
The officers of the company express tfielr
belief that a majority of the members of
the council who voted for the ordinance did
not fully understand its provisions when
they did so , but thought that It applied alone
to pavements that hud been laid less than n
year.
"It Is a great hardship on us , " said Chief
Engineer Adams to u icporter. "and if wo
were not so determined to complete our sys
tem , it would cause us to suspend work on
paved streets cntlicly , but as it is , wo will
go ahead and comply with the ordinance , but
under protest. It will necessitate the ex
penditure of thousands of dollars In absolute
cash , spot down , b.vus , whereas the property
owners have ten years to muko tlio pay
ments. If the consolidated compinlcs had
succeeded in their attempts to secure u
monopoly of the street railway business in
Onialui , you would not have seen a foot of
track laid on paved streets this year if that
ordinance remained in effect. "
Thu motor company will attempt to secure
a repeal of the ordinance.
Tho'Omaha Street railway company yes *
terday morning applied for n permit to
build on Vinton , thico blocks west from
Sixteenth , evidently with u dcsiro to
stop the motor company from pursuing its
proposed route to South Omaha , but as the
same company bus enjoined the board from
Issuing the motor company a permit to build
on these blocks , the board hold that it could
grant n permit to no company whatever tote
to build on the street in question , until the
temporary injunction was either sustained or
dissolved , us in thu latter ovctit the motor
company , having iiled.Hs application first ,
would bo entitled to 1)19 ) permit.
1)1JI ) FOIl HIS LOVE.
The Melancholy Termination of A
YotiiiR Sinn's MCc.
Daniel E. Ilohnn , n young man apparently
about twenty-one years old , committed sui
cide in Ewall's lodging house at 1107 Farnatu
street ,
Ho came to Omaha last Monday from
Cnrrol , la. , where his parents reside , nnd ,
according to n postal card found among some
letters on his person , the deceased had ar
ranged to go into business with Uoscoo M ,
Wlor , of 2. 0 North Sixteenth street.
Tha supposition Is that Hohnii had boon
disappointed In love , and so brooded over
the matter that death was decided upon to
afford him relief.
Tuesday D. O'Neill ' , a friend of Itohan's ,
arrived here , nnd slept with him Tuesday
night. Both nroso bntwecu 0 and 7
o'clock In the morning , dressed nnd loft
the room together. O'Neill ' then
went outdoors , nnd while lie was
gene Kolian wont back to the
room nnd shot himself In the head , Just be
hind the right car , with n 33-c.illbro revolver.
As soon ns tha report was hoard , everybody
In the house rushed to the locality whunos
the report came and , in Kalian's roomon the
edge of the bed , they found the victim lying
dead.
Death must have resulted almost Instantly.
Anparcntly , the sulcldo hnd seated hlmsolf
on the bed , placed the weapon to his head ,
fired and fell over backward. Ho still
grasped the revolver In his hand. A bundle
of letters was found on the bed beside him.
Ono of the missives was addressed to bis
father and another to the police authorities ,
notifying thorn whcro to telegraph to apprise
his folks ot the rash act. In this p.iukago
was a postal card to WIer , saying ; " 1 can't
become your partner as aereed. "
Four or llvo sheets of letter paper wore
discovered on which ho hnd commenced to
wrlto to a girl whom ho addressed as "Dear
Fneud Emma , " but could not nerve himself
to do It. On another sheet wei a three or four
lines to Thomas B. Hohan , saying : "I have
given up my school nnd will rough it In the
west. Settle my business as best you can. "
The letter to the father was not opened ,
Coroner Drexel was notified of the affair
Immediately , ordered thu removal of the
body to his establishment , mid at 9 o'clock
held an Inquest. The Jury returned a verdict
to the effect tint the deceased had come to
his death by a gunshot wound Inflicted by
himself nnd with suicidal Intent.
The suicide's father and brother have been
telegraphed to and tire expected hero this
cventm ; .
John M , nnd T. B. Rohan , brothers of the
miieldc , arrived In Omaha last night from
Carroll , la. , In response to a telegram. Both
are slopping nt the Mlllard. They stilted
that their young brother hud been n school
teacher and came to this city to teach in
Rome educational Institution in or near
Omaha. They said tlmt ho loft Carroll lust
Saturday night nnd arrived here Sunday
morning. He scoined to have been in good
spirits when ho loft homo Neither of the
brothers over know of him being in love.
They claim that it was a fit of despondency.
They thought ho was mentally deranged.
His father icccivcd n letter from him
Monday , saying that bo was going to end his
lift ) . The brothers , when the communica
tion was handed them , looked at each other
aud simultaneously remarked , "D.ivo Is
crazy. " The letter was very much discon
nected , nud his sudden determination to Jump
into the depths of the great unknown was at-
tiibuted to the young man's loss of ro.isou.
Young Hohun's body will not bo taken to
Carroll , la. The remains will bo laid to rest
this afternoon ut3 o'clock in Holy Sepulchre
cemetery. The funeral will be private , nnd
will take place from Drexel & Maul's under
taking establishment.

Beware of Imitations.
AFTElt THE COUNCIL PAUOE.
Mayor Broatcli Impresses Himself on
Severn ! Subjects.
Mayor Broatch was in an exceedingly good
humor yesterday. Ho was relating tlio
result of Tuesday night's council meeting-
ono of his clerks when n reporter dropped In.
"Yes , " said he , " 1 feel good. Victors have
a richt to feel so.
"I doa't fight and run away , " continued
the mavor , as ho motioned the reporter to a
seat , "that I may llvo to light some other
day. I have stood my ground In this affair ,
and I Intend to continue doing so , I under
stand that the saloon men and their friends
In the council will try to got another similar
ordinance through. Now , I think they arc
foolish to continue these tactics. If they are
not careful , 1 will enforce rcrtain strin
gent laws that will bo rather severe
on them. I can do it , and unless
they behave themselves I will. I have
tried to do what is fair and right in this
matter , nnd I think I have a majority of the
business men with me.
"The councilmen who walked out of the
meeting last night acted hlco a lot of school
boys 1 It was dissracoful I
"Hasnall 1 Hnscall 1 did you nslc me what
I thought of HnscalH" and the mayor's mild
blue eyes snapped viciously. "I think he's
a low , contemptible cur ; unfit to wash the
feet of a decent mnn. I know Hascall.
"How silly was his conduct h\st night , "
continued his honor after a pause , during
which ho had cooled down considerably.
"Sitting on the rail of the council
chamber , defying the council. Leo was
weak. If 1 hnd been wielding tlmt gavel I
would have brought Hascall inyide that rail
if I had to summon the entire polled force
nnd break every bono in his body in doing
so. The Bcrgeant-ut-arms , Butler , Is not lit
for the place. Ho was in sympathy with
Hascall through nil , and failed to do his
duty , " and the mayor signified that the In
terview was nt an end by taking up a paper
cuttsr and attacking a pile of letters that
lay before nitu. _
