AWAIT BRYAN'S DECISION Johnson and Culberson Will Not Run if He Does. SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 19. A special to the Bulletin from "Washington says that within Blx weeks "William J. Bryan will make formal announcement as to his de termination regarding the Presidential nomination. His confidential friends have felt authorized to make this statement and assign the reasons for It. "Whether Mr. Bryan will make his attitude known through a letter to a supporter or through a public speech cannot be stated. Should Mr. Bryan decide to run, the Mitfc nesota delegation will not present the name of Its Governor. Senator Culberson, of Texas, Is another who 'will not permit the use of his name before the convention, should Mr. Bryan Indicate a willingness to accept the nomination. In view of these facts It Is explained that Bryan Is convinced he must speak out before the temocrats can seriously consider choos ing a candidate. Everything In Democratlo political cir cles has been blocked for months. No progress can be made In urging any candi date for the nomination, and It would be Intolerable for the Democrats to be com--pelled to start Into an Important session of Congress without knowing whither they were drifting. It Is believed, of course, that Mr. Bryan will announce his willingness to accept a nomination. Even this would place the party in a far better position than to leave the leaders all at sea. MUST LIKE FULL PERIOD SPECULATORS IN HOMESTEAD . LANDS SHUT OUT. Commissioner Balllnger Holds Com muters Strictly to Law in Making Entry. OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. "Wash ington, Oct. 19. The following impor tant announcement was made today by Land Commissioner Ballinger: "By circular instructions Just Issued the Commissioner of the General Land Office, with the approval of the Sec retary of the Interior, has advised all local land offices of a change In the ruling with regard to homestead en tries commuted to cash under the commutation clause of the homestead laws. It was believed that under the old construction of the commutation provision, which recognized .constfuc tive residence, persons desiring to se cure public land for speculative pur poses were furnished with Inducements and facilities not found under other land laws, and that a large percentage of the homestead entries commuted to cash were. In their first Inception, made for the purpose only of securing title to the land and not with the view of obtaining a homestead for the sole use and benefit of the entry men, which wa,s the primary object of the homestead law. "By ruling Just announced, no com mutation proof offered under a home stead entry made on or before Novem ber 1, 1907, will be accepted unless such proof shows that the entryman has. In good faith, actually resided upon and cultivated the land embraced within his entry for the full period of fourteen months, thus doing away with the constructive residence period heretofore recognized. "The ruling Just announced, how ever, will not1 affect homestead en tries made previous to November 1, and commuted to cash if, when proof Is made. It Is satisfactorily shown that the entryman established actual resi dence on the land embraced within his entry within six months from date of entry. In which cose he may be cred ited with constructive residence from date of entry, but in this connection the entryman must show that his resi dence, once established, was main tained In good faith for such period an, when added to period of construc tive residence, will equal the full pe riod of 14 months' residence required under the commutation clause of the homestead act. Commutation proofs will not be accepted when they fall to how that the required residence and cultivation was continued to the date on which application to make final proof was filed In the local Land Office. "It Is the belief of the Commission er of the Land Office that strict con struction of this rule will reduce spec ulation in thia class of entries and re serve for the bona tide home-builder land suitable for agricultural pur WIMi MODIFY GREELY ORDER "War Department Not Hard on Of ficers Who Can't Ride.
