The fiillon'lrig correspondence will shoy
that thi act of th last Legislatme of the
Territory, designating the County Commis
sioners as the proper persons to enter Town
Sites, is not recognized by the Commissioner
of the Land Oiiice.
It is a question of doubt whether the Judpes
of Probate, or the United States Judges, can
be regarded as "Judges of the County Couit."
As soon as that doubt is removed, notice wi.l
be given. In the mean time no entering of
torns not Incorporated ran be made.
A copy of the act of the last Legislatme
will be placed in the hands of the Commis
sioner, and, under the circumstances, the en
tries already made mav be confirmed.
