Land Office Notes.
In the contest of John R. Rod-
m n vs. Margaret A. Siders ,
whose homestead lies southwest of
Johnstown in Cherry county , the
decision of the local office is in fa
vor of the entry woman. '
In the contest of Ernest Bussin-
ger vs. Eleanor E. Overholt , in
volving a homestead in Rock coun
ty'the decision of the local office
. 3 . ,
is against the'entrywoman.
In the contest of Amos Gudgel
v.s. Ann M. Day , widow of Lewis
If. Day , the general land office
sustains the decision of the local
olice in favor of the widow.
In the case of the United States
vs. Lizzie F3. Sherbins , involving
Mrs. Sherbin's original entry near
Brov/nlee , the general land office
sustains the decision of the local
office in favor of the entry woman ,
but requires further evidence in
her final proof.
By a recent ruling of the sec
retary of the interior , the con
structive residence which has here
tofore been allowed to entry man
who established and maintained a
residence on their claims within
six months from date of entry ,
has been abolished. Heretofore
it has always been the rule that
when the entryman established
Vesidence on his claim within six
months from date of entry , he was
allowed credit , when making
proof I , for the entire six months.
In all final proofs taken on and
after Dec. 1 , 1911 , this credit will
not be given , but five years of ac
tual and continuous residence will
berequired in every case. This
constructive residence was abolish
ed in the case of cash proofs some
time ago , and now the. same rule
will apply to five-year proofs. In
this connection it should be re
membered that all who are absent
under the present leave of absence
act until April 15 , 1912 , must
make up the time they are absent
before offering final proof. Thus
all who are absent under the War
ren act are delaying their final
proof just that much longer.
