Walla Walla, July 19. The local
land ofllca Is In rocclpt of a most Im
portant ruling of the general land of
fice. Widows and orphans of soldiers
must now complete their title to
homestead entries by the same actual'
residence as the soldier or sailor him
self. Heretofore tho widow or orphan
child of a soldier or sailor might prove
upon a hjmestc-ad claim without ac
tually living on the same at all.'
Now they will have to live the full
five years only deducting from that
time the amount of time the soldier
relation actually served.
The only exception to this Is In the
case of a soldier who uied In service.
Then the whole time of his enlistment
counts for the benefit of wif.e or children-
This law will go Into effect imme
diately, and notice will be sent to all
those who have filed under the old
s.cctlon that If they fall to comply
wlthoin CO days with tho new provis
Ion the entry will be vacated.
Provision Is made that any one who
has filed and is unable to live up to
the new requirements can relinquish
without losing their homestead right,
This doclslon Is far reaching and
will affect many families of old sol
dlers In Washington and Oregon.
