Representative SInnott. Commissioner
Tallman, of the General Land Office,
today instructed the local land office
to surpend Instead of reject entirely
applications for entry undfr the Sin
nott enlarged homestead act amend
ment, pending the receipt of printed
instructions, which are now being pre
pared and will be received soon. Prior
to the Issuance of this order thelocal
land offices had been rejecting appli
cations because they had no printed
regulations to guide them.
Mr. Sinnott pointed out to the Land
Department that this was working a
hardship on many homesteaders who
desired to file on additional quarter
sections at once, in that it compelled
them to go to the expense and bother
of taking an appeal to the General
Lanf Office to preserve a preference

ALBANY, Or., April 26. (Special.)
A case involving a $60,000 contract and
the sale of 1000 acres of land to the
colony of Russian Doukhobors which
located In Linn County about two years
asro went to trial before Judge Gallo
way in the State Circuit Court here
In this case the Russians are suing
E. ,T. Hecker. of this city, from' whom
they purchased the land, for a re
scission of the contract, the repayment
of S8906.36. which they have paid on
the purchase price, and $7318.65. which
they allege is the value of the improve
ments which they have made on the
The Doukhobors came here two years
ago from 'Western Canada and pur
chased 1000 acres of land near Peoria,
about 13 miles south of this city, the
tract purchased lying along the Wil
lamette River and just south of the
village of Peoria, which it almost ad
joins. They formed a corporation
- called the Society of Independent
Poukhobors, which made the purchase
of the land, contracting to pay $60 an
acre for it. the total purchase price of
SSO.OOQ to be paid in installments. This
contract was made May 8, 1913. and
later in that year 23 families of touk
hobors settled oh the land and began
Misrepresentation I Alleged.
In this case, which was Instituted
last December, the Russians are at'
tempting to set aside the contract on
the ground of alleged misrepresents,
' tions at the time they purchased the
land. They assert that they were told
that the land would prodtfee oats to
the value of $15 an acre and upward,
They say that they were told that ad
joining land had been sold at from
,$75 to $100 an acre and they allege
that they found that 43 acres of the
tract was in the bed of the Willam
ette River and that 45 acres more was
on an Island which overflows.
The plaintiffs also allege that they
could not understand Knglish and re
lied on the Judgment of one M. F.
Reibin. who represented them in the
transaction. They allege that Reibin
was influenced to misrepresent things
In his answer the defendant asserts
that the plaintiffs made a full and
thorough examination of the land be
fore they purchased It. He denies that
misrepresentations were made and says
that the Russians were correctly in
formed of the location of the land and
had obtained a knowledge of its char
acter by examination before the dea
was completed. The answer sets forth
that- the --defendant agreed with plain
tiffs that . the price for the 4d acres
of land said to be in the Willamette
River should be deducted from the
purchase price at lho time of the final
payment. That the plaintiffs have
placed far too high a valuation on the
improvements placed on- the land is
also maintained by the defendant.

colonists over their working agree

a "community plan and while a later
arrangement was made whereby the
corporation was to turn over certain
tracts to the Individuals all must bend
their energies toward the payment of
the purchase price and the discharg

the land first,
it is reported tha.t some of the colon

others and this has caused dissension,
Some of them are said to be willing
to make substantial payments on the
