Atlciiid to Set Final Proof Aside.
After standing idle for fully one
month, the receiver's office of the local
land office is now open, and commen
cing .Monday, moneys will be received
as regularly done. Colon R. Eberhard
the new occupant took tint oath of of
lice early this morning and immedi
ately assumed control.
His First Duties.
The first task falling to his lot was
to hear arguments in a case brought
by the government against a rich
mining concern of Baker county
known as the Ancora Gold Mining and
Milling company. Backed by testi
mony from government experts of
all description, the interior depart
ment is attempting to set aside final
proof as made alleging that the land
is of the timber and stone kind. The
suit is similar to the ones now pend
ing in Southern Oregon. The govern
ment has a large host of experts here
today and the defense is likewise pro
tected by a long string of witnesses.
