Patent Incited In February, 1908, la Not Attacked; Suit la Against Those Charged With Payment. Judge Wolverton yesterday over ruled the demurrer of the Baldwin Sheep & Land Company and others to the complaint of the Government in its suit to recover $1600 for a stone and timber .claim of 160 acres in the Hay Creek district of Oregon, patent to wnicn, it is alleged, was obtained by fraud. The demurrer contended that the facts cited in the complaint were insufficient to warrant the charge. Patent- was Issued for the land to Mrs. H. Sager February 13. 1908. She conveyed the land to J. G. Edwards in April, 1909. and he in turn transferred it to the Baldwin Sheep & Land Com pany. The land is now owned by tho Baldwin Sheep Company, a separate corporation having no connection with the other company of similar name. It Is alleged that the Baldwin Sheep & Land Company, J. G. Edwards, J. G. Rice and J. W. Robinson were con cerned in a deal with Mrs. Sager, whereby they gave her the money for filing fees, paid all expenses of per fecting the patent, and then paid her $125 to sell the land to Edwards, she at no time being a bona flde claimant, but a dummy through which the de fendants worked to gain possession of the land. The case presents a new aspect in that the Government is not asking for the cancellation of the patent, but for damages for having been defrauded. It is contended that the land is worth at least $10 an acre, the amount asked as damages. Mrs. Sager paid $2.50 an acre. for; the land when she received her patent, which,, having stood for more than six years, is not subject to cancellation.- The land having passed into the hands of "innocent purchasers.'-' there is nothing for the Gov ernment to do but ask for damages. John J. Beckman, assistant United States District Attorney, has charge of the case for the Government. EASTER AT GEARHART. Professor Ludwig in charge of Nata- lunum taster week.
