Law IVIiita ntTcctlnj; llomctcml nntl
Dcicrt Kntrlc ni Decided by the
fcccretary of the Interlorrnnd Con-
dcnscd for Itiillrtln Header.
Tho following la n digest of recent
Important law iolnt8 na dccldoil by
tho 'Secretary of the Interior, affect-
Ins land cases:
Credit for military service under
section 2305 Rovtaed Statutes applies
only to rcstdonco and not to any culti
vation that may bo specifically re
quired. Section 4 ot the act of Feb. 19th,
1909, requires, among other things
In making final proof on entries un
der the revised statutes, proof also of
cultivation of specific portions of tho
entry from year to jenr.
Obviously tho specific require
ments of said act as to cultivation
cannot be affected by the previously
enacted section 2305 It. 8., allowing
credit aa to residence on homestead
entries for military service.
Isolated Tract.
Under tho provisions of tho act of
April 30th, 1912, isolated tracts can
bo sold and entered with a reserva
tion to tho Government of tho coal
rights. In such case tho entryman I
should signify his willingness to ac-
copt a limited patent.
,ln a contest between two entry
men. who in good faith settle upon
two adjoining homesteads simultan
eously, tholr rights n 111 bo equitably
adjusted by the department. In tho
above case, tho department follows
tho reasoning In Williams s. U. S.
(128 U. S. 014), and overrules tho
case of Summers vs. Roberts (23 L.
D. 201.)
It has often been held by tho de
partment that, where an entry has
been erroneously allowed in violation
of the rule of approximation, said en
try may remain Intact BUbJcct to con
sideration by the Hoard of Kqultablo
Adjudication, when It is shown that
such ontry could not bo reduced with
out forfclturo of tho Improvements
of claimant.
Information aa to proposed restor
ation of land will not bo given nut In
advnnco of tho publication of execu
tive orders affecting such lands, not
even to those assorting claims, ns
such information might embarrass
tho deportment (nits adjudication of
such claims.
A preference right obtained through
tho successful outcome of n contest
ot a public land entry Is not assign
Tho law does not provide clthor
oxpressty or by Implication that this
preference right could bo exercised
either directly or Indirectly by an
other ccn though tho third porson
had obligated himself after obtain
ing patent to tho land to convey tho
title thereto, In whole or In part, to
tho successful contestant. Tho
statuto contemplated a personal pro
ceeding and a personal reward.
Desert IaniN,
There Is nothing In tho act ot Juno
2Cth, 1910 Inconsistent with tho al
lowance of a preference right to a
successful contestant.
Tho preference right la a toward
offered to ono who hna expended hla
monoy nnd ttmo In obtaining cancel
lation of an unlawful holding ot pub
lic lands. However, only ono farm
unit can bo entered under audi pref
erence right, '
Tho construction ot an nrtealan
well for reclamation purposes la con
struction ot Irrigation works within
contomplatlon ot Sec. 3 of tho act of
March 28th, 1908 nnd failure, after
diligent effort, to obtain water by
means of such attempted artesian
welt, without fiiult on the part ot tho
cutrymnn, Is aulllclcut ground for an
extension ot time,
