homesteaders in tho Intqrlor that n

written that no route will bo estab

As the establishment of tho route

take tho matter up further In tho
hope of making clear to tho depart
ment just what Is desired.

"Hccoipt Is acknowledged of your
letter of tho 25th ultimo, transmit

"In reply you uro advised that this
question was carefully considered by
a representative of tho Department
who recontly Inspected tho star route
sorvlco in Hnmoy and Crook coun

a route would bo oxhorbltant, Infor
