ORDER CAUSES DELAY
Added Work for Torrnt Superintendent
In llliirk llllli.
The recent order Issued bv the com
missioner of the general land oillee
requiring the superintendent of the
Rlack hills forest reserve to pass upon
all mineral lands on the reserve en
tered for patent is causing much an
noyance and delay In the Issuance of
pntents. There have not been any
patents received at this office for min
eral lands for over a year, and it de
velops that they arc being held up by
the general land office pending Investi
gation and report by the superintend
ent of the forest reserve. This repoit
must be as to the general character of
the land, whether or not In his opin
ion it Is more valuable for mineral
than for agricultural purposes, loca
tion, water courses, and contour of the
T region. It Is asserted that this ruling
has been made entered as mineral In
years past that did not contain any
mineral, and It is the Intention of the
department to prevent lraud. The
claim is made, however, that there are
very few cases where actual Traud was
Intended. At that time the land was
not subject to homestead entry, and
the only way by which It could be ob
tained was under the mineral law. The
new regulation will add greatly to the
duties of the forest superintendent.

HOW THE SENATE WILL HE.

A Washington. Nov. 4. dispatch says:
The next United States senate will bo
republican by at least sixteen majority,
against the present majority of twenty.
The present senate contains llfty four
republicans, thirty-four democrats.
The terms of thlry senatois expire
with tho present congress. There Is a
vacancy from Mlchl m. caused by the
death of Senator MiMllkin. Of these
thirty-one seats to be liled. not includ
ing two from Delaware, but including
the McMillan wusiney. nineteen sue
now republicans and twelve democrats.

As It now stands the republicans nre
sure of llfty-two, and tho clenionrals,
thirty-four scats in tho next senate.
Tho result of contests, owing to mengre
returns nt this hour. Is still in doubt in
Nevada, Idaho, Utah, Colorado, with
chances favoring the elect Ion of dem
ocratic legislatures In Colorado. Idaho
and Nevada, and a republican legisla
ture in Utah. If these probabilities
should be realized, tho uenato will
stand flfty-tliren republicans to thirty
soven democrats with a loss of four
to tho republicans, compared with the
present political dovlslon. If tho pres

should bo called In extra session and
should be able to get together and elect
