MICKEY AND EATON CLASH. i
Governor Wants Records of School
Land Deeds More Complete.
Lincoln, Feb. 5.-Botween Governor
Mickey and Land Commissioner Eaton
thero is something doing. At an exec-i
utlvo session of the board of educa-'
tional lands and funds tho two becamo
so excited over a proposition that Mr.
Eaton left tho meeting In a huff, after
hotly exclaiming to tho governor:
"Well, you had bettor come over
and run my olllco yoursolf." .
Tho proposition was whether a rec
ord should bo made when tho board
had decided that a person was en
titled to a deed to school landB. Here
toforo it has bcen customary for tho
laud commissioner to make out tho
deed and tako it to tho governor to;
sign. Tho latter has always signed (
without looking up the record, of'
course leaving that entirely in tho'
hands of tho land commissioner. Tho
governor suggested that It would be
a good Idea for tho board to meet and
decide who were entitled to deeds
and make a record of tho board's ac
tion. Then the deeds would be mado
out and proporly signed.
This, of coins o, would add much to
tho work In tho land commissioner's
office, which Is juat now bolng per
formed by a forco not nt all too large,
and Eaton objected to tho now duties.
Tho board probably will decide to
have tho record mado of the pur
chaser's right to the deed, so in case
a mistake should bo made in tho deed
tho board could fall back on Its record.
