Entering Town Sites.
The following correspondence will show
that the act of the last Legislature ot the
Territory, designating the County Commis
sioners as '.h- proper persons to enter Town
Sites, is not recognized by the Commissioner
of the Land Office.
It is a question of doubt whether the Judges
of Probate, or the United State Judges, can.
be regarded as "Judges of the County Court."
As soon as that doubt is removed, notice wi.l
be given. In the mean time no entering of
towns not incorporated can be made.
A copy of the act of the last Legislatm
will be placed in the hands of the Commis
sioner, and, under the circumstances, the eu
tries already made may be confirmed.

Territory there are no such officers as "Judges
