LINCOLN. March 30. (Special.) All
f doubt seems to have been removed aa to
I the legality of the action of the governor
1 should be appoint Representative Henry T.
Clarke a member of the railway commis
sion. Attorney General Thompson today
aid he had looked Into the matter care
fully and It waa his opinion that Mr.
Clarke Is eligible to the office. 80 far Mr.
Thompson said he had not had time to
find any decisions bearing directly on this
matter from fllerl in nthar slat, but
6 from what investigations he had made he
was certain there could be no doubt of
what the decision would be should . Mr.
Clarke receive the appointment and the
office contented. The constitution Is Inter
preted to refer to those appointed by the
governor Solely to fill appointive but not
$ Robert Cowell telephoned last night that
he had mailed his resignation as a member
of the commission, but whether Governor
Bheldon will announce the appointment of
Mr. Clarke before the legislature adjourns
probably only the governor knows. Inas
much, however, as the commission Is
anxious to organise and the other two
members do not want to select their help
until Mr. Clark Is sworn In, It may be
that the commission will be turned over to
Mr Clarke even before the sexslon ends,
j-j - ,- It Is understood that Mr. Cowell In his
liH cv letter of resignation stated that It had
cents. ) been the opinion of himself and friends
a , when he accepted the nomination for the
office that it would not require all of his
time from his regular business. The bill
defining the duties of the commissioners,
however. Is so broad In scope and their
duties so numerous, that nothing less than
, 4 alt of the Incumbent's time would enable
- bun to do justice to himself or the people.
Mr. Cowell feels that he could not afford
to devote all his time to the office and Is
unwilling to accept It and simply perform
the duties In a perfunctory way, hence the
Conncll Held ou Reservation and Re
V port to Go to Wnahlagton.
WITH NELL, Neb., March 80.-(Speclal.)-One
of .the largest meetings In the history
of the Omaha Indians was hejd at Mathew
Tyndall lodge, Tuesday. The meeting
was for the discussion of several recent or
ders of the Department of the Interior, and
a few other grievances of longer standing

William Thomas, 8. Hallowell, William

One subject under serious discussion waa
the order of the department empowering
the superintendent to sign the leases for
the Indiana. The very excellent point was
made that many of the Indians were com
petent to make their own lease and. In
many cares, could secure a better contract
and tenant than could the superintendent

KINKAID LAW APPLIES TO ENTRY

NORTH PLATTE, Neb.. March 80. (Spe
cial ) A computation of the acreage to be
thrown open to one section homestead en
try on May L 1907. at the United Statea
land office at North Platte, Neb., shows
the total to be 76,53) acres. This land is di
vided among the different counties aa fol
lows: Lincoln, 800 acres; Keith, 81.730 acres;
Deuel, 87,640 acres; Cheyenne, 6,960 acre.
None of thl land may be homesteaded or
entered In any manner at the present time..
Such Is the order of the secretary of the
Interior. Heretofore when there have been
land openings parties have filed upon a
quarter section under the old homestead
law, and filed upon the same in such a
manner aa to leave the rest of the section
In an undesirable condition for anyone else.
But this Is prevented In this instance by
the secretary's order prohibiting anyone
from homesteadlng or filing upon this land
prior to May 1. 1907.
Laad Hot Irrigable.
Thl tract waa originally withdrawn Just
a few day before June 28, 1904, when the
Klnkald law first took effect. The purpose
of the withdrawal waa to use the land for
Irrigation purposes under the national Irri
gation law, but after an Investigation the
department found that it waa not prac
ticable to Irrigate these lands, and so this
atria, following the North Platte river from
North Platte almost to Irvlnr In Deuel
county, waa restored to entry.
. There Is considerable vacant land In
Deuel county, but the strip of land extenni
but eight miles east and west In this
county. The land Is situated within one to
eight mile of the North Platte river and
the same distance from the new branch
oi the Union Pacific railroad, which is be
ing constructed from North Platte along
the North Platte river to Northport. Thla
branch haa already been completed aa far
as Lewelien In Deuel county and North
port will likely be reached during the sum
mer. Already a large number of people
are making Inquiries personally at the land
office here and by letter, and quite a num
ber are Investigating the tracts to be
thrown open and making their selections,
and there will no doubt.be several hundred
people at least at the opening on May 1.
All heada of families and single people
over 21 years of age who have never
homesteaded lands before and who do not
own more than HO acres of deeded land,
are entitled to an entire section of this
land. Those who have had a former
homestead are entitled to fill out a section
in this tract. Foreign-born cltlsens must
bring their naturalisation papers with
Good Graslngr Land. ,
The land Is best suited for the raising
of stock of all kinds and dairy cattle. A
portion of the most of these sections may
be broken out and different crops raised.
such aa alfalfa, corn and small grain,
sufficient to supply considerable stock.
The land being located qnlte near the new
railroad which la being constructed,
gives a good opportunity for marketing
dairy products. As far aa the new rail
road has been built, depots, section houses
and water tanks have been completed,
and. there 1 no question but that this
railroad will be finished as soon aa possi
ble. Just a few days before the Klnkald
law first took effect (June 28, 1904.) a
number of cattle companies and organisa
tions secured a large number of people
to make fraudulent filings of 160 acrei
eacfe under the homestead laws, so as to
make It unlikely that anyone would
homestead the remainder of the section.
As a general rule these quarter section
filings covered the best portion of the
sections In which they were made, but
In almost every one of these cases no
residence has been established upon the
land and these homesteads are subject
to contest and cancellation.' The hbme
seeker will, therefore, frequently find that
he will be able to secure better land by
filing upon the remainder of the section
which is vacant and then contesting the
old entry, and after he has secured it
cancellation h will be allowed to amend
his original homestead so that the Bam
