that where u settler has failed to com

In the case of Christian F. Ebtng-
or , of Bloomington , Nab. , against
Daniel Hoarla , Acting Secretary Jos-
lyii to-day decided that Eblngor no
quired no right by presentation of
application for timber culture entry
during the vacancy in the office of receiver
ceiver , and that consequently the
tract in controversy was unappropria
ted on the any of Hoarla' application.
The decision establishes an important
precedent which will govern similar
Acting Secretary of the Interior
Joslyn to-day decided that the stat
utes restrict a contest against prior
timber culture entry to ono who
seeks to enter it under the homestead
on timber culture laws. In the ab
sence of application there is no ri ht
of contest.
In the decision rendered to-day the
acting secretary of the interior holds
that a contest for land title instituted
by a parent cannot ba transferred or
inherited by a child , oven though it
shall appear that the contest was in
stituted for the child's benefit.
Commissioner McFarland , in a re
cent decision , declares that where a
person has failed to make entry to n
tract of land through being miain-
ormod of hia rig'lita by Joca ! officers ,
whan otherwise entitled to matte en
try , will bo protected by the depart
ment and lose nothing unless required
to do so by the actual demands of the
On April 4 , 1881 , the president is
sued a proclamation reserving from
sale sertaiu lands in Wisconsin which ,
it was thought , would bo 'required for
reservoir purposes on the headwaters
of the Mississippi and St. Croiz
rivers. This proclamation was based
upon the engineers' reports. From
subsequent reports it appears that the
land reserved will not bo required.
The president , by another procla
mation , releases the lands em
braced in the former. The acting
secretary of the interior holds that cash
entries of land reserved by the first
proclamation made after the date of
the proclamation but before its recep
tion at the local office are illegal , as
the proclamation wont into effect from
Its date and not from its receipt at the
local pffica. The acting secretary has
rnferrod said entries to a bourd for
equitable adjudication.
Acting Secretary Joslyn has de
cided the case of Williams vo. the
heirs of Hodgman , at Benson , Minn ,
in favor of the heirs. It appears that
Hodgman made an entry on the land
of Williams on the ground that Wil
liams died and loft his entry incom
plete. The acting secretary holds
that the heirs should bo allowed to
complete the entry.
It is believed some of the aged
clerks in the postufiico department
will bo wooded out on the first of the
month. Many of them are Bald to bo
incapacitated for duty. The Star
Bays sorno removals will also bo made
because the clerks refused to pay as
to-day continued the account of his
land trip , giving no new or interest
ing points.
It ia estimated there will bo fifty
contented election cases for the houeu
of representatives in the next congress.
For some time past thpro has been
an unpleasantness existing between
the chief clerk of the revenue marine
and his deputy , Mr. Trovitt , of Now
Yoik state , Some months ago the
deputy made a desperate attempt to
succeed the chief , but failed. To-day
it was decided to aupercodo this depu
ty. It is thought quito probable the
asaiaUnt appointment clerk will be se
lected to fill the vacancy ,

of the treasury department , hes re

CHICAGO , November 14. Careful
revision of returns and of estimates of
probable results of the election in the
nineteen states which will elect sena
tors as soon as their legislatures moot ,
makes it seem probable there will bo
a republican majority of from two to
four after March 4. Fourteen demo
crats , cloven republicanratd ono inde
pendent leave the senate March 4 ,
There remain 23 democrats , 20 ropub
'leans , and Mahono. Of the 2C now
senators , seven have already been
elected , throe democats , three ropub-
"leans , nnd Riddluborger. Tiioro re
main 19 senators to bo elected , and
to control the senate , the republicans
need 10 more , while the democrats
need 13. After the election
n states which are euro
to elect republican and democratic
senator ? , the two parties will bo a tie
at thirty-six. There will remain to
attlo the question , the states of
Colorado and Nebraska. The senate
would bo a tie if Colorado and Ne
braska should both elect democrats.
The only chance of the democratu to
obtain control of the senate in in the
ovcnt that both Colorado and Nebraska
shall elect democrats and that Mahono
and Riddloborger shall abandon their
republican allies and vote with the
democrats. Both these contingencies
are unlikely to occur. It ia very much
more probable that Colorado and Ne
braska will both elect republicans and
that Mahono and Riddle'bergor will
continue to act with republicans , in
which event the republican majority in
the senate will bo four.

PHILADELPHIA , November 14.
The trustees of the university of
Pennsylvania hold a special meeting
to day. The application of Fioronco
Kelley and Frances H. Natcholl for
admission to the university was not
considered , Provost Pepper stating he
deemed the decision arrived at at the
last meeting in the case of Alias Orad-
dock as conclusive and bearing npon
thcso applications quite na much as
upon the particular ono in question.
This was to the effect that it is not ex
pedient at present to afford women
access to the departments nf arts , but
that the board of trustees
of the university will organize
n separate collegiate department for
the ample and complete education of
women whenever the funds necessary
to defray the expenses of such annex
shall be provided. The board believed
$300,000 will bo certainly required for
the purpose. A resolution declaring
that any of the dugreca or honors of
the university may bo conferred upon
women who shall pass the proper
examinations waa offered and favora
bly considered , but it waa thought

sionor Midgoloy , of the Tona'Trunk-
Line nsaociation , issued a circular to
day directing lines in the association
to'bill no more freight to points in
Nevada via the Union Pacific road
unleus prepaid to Council Bluffs , and
oven then to accept it with the stipu
lation that responsibility for its for
warding nhall oeoso nt Council Bluffs.
This action is taken because the Union
Pacific refuses to make a joint fixed ,
rate to Nevada points. The circular
does not nffoot business through to
California. The effect of this will bo
to compel the Union Pacific to con
cede the point , or freight will go by
the Southern Pacific.
