Halloween passed of in Toledo
with the usual pranks of the small
boys, which, we are pleased to note,
resulted in no material damngo to
property. Parties were given by
Fay Plank and Ruth and Clarence
Settlers Win Case.
A decision has been handed down
by the Acting Assistant Commis
sioner of the Department of the
Interior which will be of interest to
nfany Siletz settler, some of whose
case is similar. Following is the
decision and article printed in the
Portland Oregonian of last Friday :
Evidence that the entryman on
public land in this state, who has
acted in good faith, has nothing to
fear at the hands of the Depart
ment of the Interior, is found in
the recent decision of II. H.
Schwartz, Acting Assistant Com
missioner, in the contest proceed
ings of J. L. Campbell against
Arthur C. Boeschen. This contest
involved the title to a valuable claim
in the Siletz district and has been
pending before the Department for
several years. A copy of the opin
ion was received yesterday by A.
W. Lafferty, who appeared as at
torney for the contestee.
The cancellation of Boeschen 's
homestead entry was recommended
to the Department by the Register
and Receiver of the Portland Land
Ofiice, following the report of a
special agent who, on investigation,
held that the entryman had not
honestly complied with the provis
ions of the homestead laws. The
Acting Commissioner holds that the
contestant did not support his
charges of nonresidence and non
cultivation on which he based his
claim for a revocation of Boechen's
entry and orders the contest dis
Referring to the testimony of the
entryman at the hearing of the con
test before the Land Ofiice officials
in Portland, the Acting Commis
sioner holds that Boeschen settled
on the land in 1901 and built a
good house. Two years later he j
constructed another house, and be-'
tween the date of entry and final
proof he cleared about an acre and
a half of land and raised vegetables.
He also set out some fruit trees.
After establishing his residence,
Boeschen admitted that he was
away about half of the time, but
never was absent from the claim
longer than six months at a time.
He testified further that he was on
the claim in the Spring, Summer
and Fall, but J ie could not remain
there throughout the year for the
reason that if lie did he would starve
to death. During these intervals
Boeshen said lie worked at Toledo, !
Salem and Eugene, but declared
that he had no fixed residence other
than on his claim.
On the question of residence, Act
ing Commissioner Schwartz, in his
opinion, dismissing the contest,
It is true he (Boeschen) could
not give specific dates, but owing to
the lapse of time that was but
natural. But he gave the approxi
mate time he lived on the claim and
shows that his absences were caused
by his necessities, and if he estab
lished residence, and you do not
find that he did not, his subsequent
absences may bo deemed excusable.
As against the theory of occasion
al visits stands the fact that two
years after entry contestee built an
addition to his house, or, as he
terms it, "built another house."
Now, if he was endeavoring to ac
quire title to this land by occasional
visits, why go to this unnecessary
expense? If contestee is telling the
truth, he did this about a year prior
to the time that ho was entitled to
submit final proof. I cannot con
strue this action otherwise than in
the entryman's favor and against
the theory of occasional visits.
Under the circumstances I am
constrained to hold that the testi
mony given more than three years
after the entryman submitted final
proof in support of his compliance
with the law, does not sustain the
charges made, or warrant the can
cellation of the entry.
