Iswoiklng with Assistant Socielary ot the
Intctloi Jenks lo secure the piomulgatloti of
an order which will alfoid Immediate icllcf
to those whoso land titles and leal sccmlties
havobcen jeopatdbedby lucent decisions of
the land commissioner. Hu asks that an
oulcr be issued icqiiliing a contestant ot a
case , after it has been passed upon bv the
local land olllcers , lo give notlto of the con
test and have a dial botoiotheiocaii be a sus
pension of patent. The piocediuo ho
proposes is similar to the contesting
ol a will , lie asks , also , that In
futiuc no title wheiu a laud olllcei's
iccelpt has been given on agricultural
land , shall bo suspendcdor cancelled
until a healing is had be Co to thu
local laud olllcc , with a light to appeal to tlio
land commissioner and sccictary of thu In
tel ior , and that at such heatings due notice
must bo given the patties intciested by pub
lication or otherwise ; that upon the govern
ment In these tiials must ie.st the bin dun of
piovlng that thcoiiglnal decision of the local
land ofllce was obtained thioimh fiaud ; that
all entiles on agilcultmal lands that have
been suspended shall be icmoved ami placed
on the same footing as cases aiising after
Issuance of Iho older. Senator IMgeiton
says that while leiucdy 111 the com Is may be
ample , they aie too expensive and opeiate
too slowly lo meet the necessities of the pee
ple. He also wants ptovhlon made tor ilio
piotcctlon of innocent piuchascis
of , 01 paitios making loans
uimn lauds , thu title to which was ob
tained by fiamN. He thinks an innocent
puichasci of a moitgago should be allowed to
enter the land on payment ol double the
minimum price , piovldcd It has been
.shown that tee oilgimd settler has
committed a liaud In "proving up" without
a snlllclcnt settlement on the land. He asks
also that wltmcssus be compelled to attend
tlietilals of contested cases , and has great
hopes ol having the inlcs modified to meet
all of these suggestions , Mr. Jenks Indicat
ing his appioval of them.

It Is believed that it will boaigucd by the

apply their company's brand to the boiler

Commencing operations they pulled their

"open her up , " so they might have an op-
poitunlty to "haul her up , " and anui o them

Mr. Kd. It. Callaway of this city is in
receipt of 11 copy of the ( Salvo-ton New ? ,
whU'ii after reprinting the llr.r.'s account
of tlio suicide of Frank V. Adams in
Oninlia recently , sny < : "When Adams
was in jail liove awaiting trial on charge
of defrauding laishal I'liilllps and others
out of fJl/JUO , many of Ins lady friends
for lie was a deeidod bean sent linn
lloral ort'urlngs and delicacies , and pur-
fitnii'd notes of condolence and sym
pathy were nnnierou.s. Some of his gentleman -
tleman society fi lends even asked , and
were permitted , the privilege to sleep in
jail with him to relieve the ennni of his
cruel incarceration. When Adams pot
n to this trouble Mr. Callaway tele
graphed ono of his brothers n Wall
street broker Mating the fuels and
asking if he would do anything to
help Fiank , and ho answered :
"let the law take its course. " A few duj s
after this Mr. Callaway recehed a letter
from the brother explaining the telegram ,
: md stating that I'rank hailbeen in sev
eral serapes f the kind in New York ,
and the famjly had already spent a small
fortune onjiini in getting him out. They
had sent him toeu on a long cruise , and
had finally sent him out 16 Texas on a
stock ranch , hoping to get him away
from old association- , and break him ot
his old habits , and they had finally been
forced to the conclusion that there was
no hone for him , and now thought that
probably a term in the penitentiary
, inight prove beneficial to him. So he
went up for four years , but was par
doned soon before the expiration of his
time , and returned to Galveston , On re
turning , it will bo remembered that ho
made a statement through the columns of
the News , in .substance that lie came back
to live down his disgrace , was exceed
ingly penitent and made many promises
of exemplary conduct lor the future. His
penitence and seemingly sincere promises
of reformation enlisted the sympathy of
a friend who was willing to condone the
past , and , with the hope of making Ad
ams a better man , he was taken by the
hand , as it were , and given a position by
Mr. Fowler with his firm of Fowler i\ :
Walker. He repaid this gen-
curiosity by robbing the linn of several
hundred dollars , and was permitted to go
unpiiniuhcd lor this oll'ense , conditioned
upon his leaving the country. It was
then he went west , and finally landed in
Nebraska. This was < -omo time during
last spring. While in Ga1vo ton , Adams

A SINNKH'S SKNTKXri : .
The trial of ( J. W. Jones before Judge
Parker , for keeping a disorderly house
and nest of prostitution at IfK South
Tenth street , resulted in the conviction of
the accused. The com ! was about im
posing a sentence ot sixty days in jail and
a line of $100 and costs , when a. question
was raised as to the legality of a double
sentence. In order to uu on the safe side
the monny penalty only was imposed ,
Jones being assessed IS. ! jn all. He
gave notice of appeal , and filed a bond
with Mayor Burr as surety. The action
of the mayor in thus virtually endorsing
a man convicted of a heinous otiuiiso
against the morals and peace of the city
over which ho presides is causing great
indignation and unfavorable comment.
Another bad feature of the ease is that on
appeal it goes to the district court where
Judge Pound presides , an able lawyer
and impartial jurist. Hut Mr. Pound is
the owner ot the building which Jones
occupies , and has been more than oneo
nolihed of the disreputable manner in
which his tenant was conducting it , but
has never seen lit to interfere.
