AGAINST THE WARNER SETTLERS.
Commissioner Blnger Hermann Reverses the Decision of the Register and Re
ceiver of the Lakevlew Land Office in the Warner Land Cases.
Tho ofllclals of the local land ofllee received yesterday a copy of the decision of Commissioner Hermann of the Gen
eral Land Oftlce In the case of The State of Oregon ana Warner Valley Stock Company vs. J. L. Morrow, et al., in
volving lauds in Warner valley. The decision Is on appeal from tho Lakoviow Laud Otllce, and, after going into tho
testimony of tho case at length, tho Commissioner renders his decision against the settler in the following- language;
"After a curoful consideration of all tho testimony submitted in this case, I must hold and decide that the lauds In
volved were not, in 1800, covered by tho waters of a portuanout lake, and your decision is, therefore, revorsed and the
appeal submitted." BlNOEK HERMANN. ,
In this connection Col. C. A. Cogswell, la a private letter to F, M. Millor of Lakevlew, says that the Commissioner
of tho (ioneral Land Olllce at Washington has reversed the opinion of tho local land oflloo and decided against the
settlors. In tho course of his letter Col. Cogswell says: "I almost wish Commissioner Hermann had decided the oth
er way, I would rather buy out tho settlers than to take the land from them. Hut, of course, they know when they
settled there that they were liable to lose U, liut, for all that, I am sorry for them."
