the general land office, Fied Dennett, act

words "actual operation" an used In the
circulars of instructions regarding the
sale of Isolated tracts do not mean 'resi

the acquisition of the land by a homo-

Congressman Klnkald secured the enact

' Congressman Klnkald . letter to the
commissioner Is as follows:
O'Nelli, Neb., June 12. Sir 1 beg to say
a good many constituents have become
anxious to learn when the isolated tract
act, public No. 18tt. of which I secured the
passage at ilia last aesslon. Is to be put
Into operation, as they have been Informed
at the various land oiflcea that no instruc
tions or rules and regulations, relative to
the administration of the act have yet
been received. In order to- be able to
answer such Inquiries, I shall esteem It a
personal tavor If you will advise ma when
such Instructions will be sent out to tha
vera I land offices In this congressional
district, aa all the lands, I believe, effected
by the act, are within this district.
While writing you concerning public No.
11, 1 beg to refer further to the character
of the regulations which you will adopt,
and am prompted so to do by reason of
the instructions you hsve promulgated rela
tive to the isolated tract act of June 27,
ISO. (84. Stats., Il7. In these Instructions
you require that one who appliea to have
a tract sold shall, in addition lo the show
ing already required, swear that he de
sires to purchase the land for his own
Individual use, and actual occupation.
Permit me to point out that If bv the lah-
guage, "actual occupation." It Is to

strip of territory. Besldee tha military
control of the strip and the executive man

time last winter It was discovered by the
authorities that a law or a regulation gov

volving tha legitimacy of tha issue of any
such marriages as well a tha tltla to
About tha middle "of last May the daugh
ter of Judge Stephens of Panama was mar
ried .to , a young American there by a
Protestant minister residing In the ono.
The affair was chronicled In the society re
ports and everything was lovely until
shortly after the bridal party had left for
the United States. Suddenly one morning
Judge Stephens had a thought. It was not
a pleasant one. He was struck with the
recollection that the old laws of the Re
public of Panama prevail In the xone where
not otherwise specifically provided for.
Then tha judge remembered that under the
old law of the Republic of Panama, which
had been brought down from the days
when tha government of Colombia was
paramount, the Roman Catholic church Is
the only "recognised" church In that coun
try. Although the weather was hot tlio
Judge had a chill. The daughter and aon-In-law
had sailed away and It was Impos
sible to have the ceremony repeated by a
minister of the '"recognised" church. The
judge got busy. He sent a long message
by wire to the president and ha followed
It up with a letter explaining the situa
tion and suggesting a change in the execu
tive order. The president saw the point at
once and he did not hesitate to comply
with the Judge's suggestion. With com
mendable haste he caused to be prepared a
new marriage regulation, which was
promptly transmitted to the governor of
the xone, which empowers any minister of
any church or any Judicial officer to cele
brate marrlay-s on the Isthmus. The execu
tive order aJso validates all marriages
which hav been performed by Protestant
ministers since the control ' of the canal
rone panned to the United Stages.
It Is understood a large number of mar
riages which have taken place within the
xone within the last two years are affected
by the executive order.
ew Naturalisation Law at Work.
The new naturalization law went Into
effect on September 2 last. .Under that
law naturalisations of foreign born would
be citizens of the United States were prac
tically suspended until December 29. From
that time on records have been kept here In
Washington of all the Immigrants who de
sired to become citizens of this country and
no one can be naturalized until his pe
tition is passed upon by tha federal author
ities. The process of creating an American citi
zen today Is a somewhat complicated one.
The applicant must declare his intention,
apply for citizenship In a court of com
petent Jurisdiction and all the papers must
be submitted to the bureau of Immigration
and naturalization In the department of
commerce and labor upon regularly pre
scribed form and three monfhg later, pro
vided he uas lived five years In the United
States, toe applicant must appear In court
and satisfy the court officers that he has
compiled with all the requirements of the
new uw. Should objection be filed against
his application he must defend his rights
a-t establish the fact that he Is entitled
'jo the benefits of the protection of the
American flag.
The new law has been In effect practically
six months. Its provisions are not fully
understood yet by the Immigrants gener
ally, although they are rapidly "catching
on." Since January 1 the average number
ot declarations of Intentions to become
American citizens has been approximately
10,000 per month. Twenty-five hundred pe
titions for citizenship papers have also
been recorded each month since the first
ot January and In that period final naturalr
lsation papers to the number of 1.000 per
month have been issued. This does not be
gin to approach the number of Immigrants
which have arrived In the various parts of
the United States monthly In recent years,
but the figures tndicate a very strong desire
on ths part of Immigrants to acquire the
rlghta of Amerclan citizenship and it Is
believed that as soon aa tha law is thor
oughly understood and that aft the officials
become perfected In the details of tha stat
ute the number of naturalizations will
very materially Increase.
Up to tha present time It Is asserted the
new act has been operated with very little
friction. Court officers everywhere have
shown a disposition to do everything In
their power towards perfecting the ma
chinery of naturalization and It Is the gen
eral belief that the problem has been solved
end that hereafter Uncle Sam will hsve
a complete and perfect record of every
foreign born resident who aspires to be
come 4 citizen of this great republic.

Wall Rnat Device Needed.
During the last thirty years paragraphs
have appeared In country weeklies, patent
Insldes, and even In mora pretentious pub
lications to the effect that the govern
ment has a standing reward offered of a
vast sum of money snywhere from 1100,000
to $100.000,000 which Is to be given to the
msn who will discover perpetual motion.
The patent office la filled with models of
mschlncs designed to run without power.
Of course there Is no reward outatsndlng
for perpetual motion, and equally, of
course, no one hss ever discovered a
method of creating power without energy.
Not Is It likely that any such discovery
will ever be made. But If Inventors who
have been chasing the Ignis fntuus of per
petual motion will devote their energies
and brains to the construction of soma
practical device for grabbing off mall bags
by fast moving trains there Is a fortune
In sight for them.
The present method Is to place a mall

O save Ornnire for Profit.
The Atchison, Topeka A Santa Fe Is giv
ing preference to tha use of osage orange
fence posts along Its right-of-way. It I
difficult to secure sufficient supply and thu
company la drawing heavily on the hedges
and wind-breaks belonging to the farmers
In Iowa, Nebraska and Kansas. The Com
pany has shipped such posts u far west
as New Mexico and Is using them In prefer
ence to the native juniper of the west, al
though a large supply of the junipers !a
available at cheaper prices. Among farm
ers also throughout the middle west osage
orange forests are coming more and more
Into favor.
This large use and Increasing demand
will stimulate the growing of the osage
orange where conditions are aultabla. and
will also resist in better knowledge aa to
Its lasting power under difficult conditions.
It Is already known to be one of the most
durable of timbers. Its natural range ex
tends from tha Arkansas rlvr to southern
Texas. Cultivation ha spread It much
more widely, so that It Is grown as far
west a Colorado and New Mexico, and
eastward to Massachusetts; but It Is doubt
fill If It will be commercially profitable In
the northern part of Nebraska, Iowa , and
Illinois on account of the severe winters.
The osage orange adapts Itself to a va
riety of loll and cltmetto conditions. It will
endure a great amount of neglect, and It
rarely succumbs to drouth. It ability to
withstand aridity make It one of the most
desirable tree for planting In the middle
West. Although It Is a tree of only small
to medium size, with a tendency to form
crooked trunk, 1 1 furnishes a relatively
large amount of ftnc post material, since
It Is extremely strong and can be used to a
smaller dimension than many other specie.
There Is always a good demand for even
tha moat crooked osage orange posts and
the wood Is largely used by farmers for
stake material in short lengths. This allows
almost complete utilization of the tree, an

Mora Time Gives Impetus.
Tha decision to extend tha time for the
close of the Toung Men's Christian asso
ciation campaign has given new heart to
the workers. The young men had said
repeatedly the small percentage of active
workers on their team made It Impossible
for them to secure the amount they set
out for by July 3, and they now feel that
victory Is not only possible, but assured.
The boys have Indicated their Increased
Interest by securing more Individual sub
scriptions since Saturday noon than on any
day since the canvass started. EX F. Den
nlson, boys' secretary,, said yesterday, the
boys would have a total of about 11,800

effort being made to 'wipe out the debt
of $90,000.
The speaker at the meeting for men
held In the association building was "Kid"
Wedge, a former prize fighter, who was
cenverted. He had a large audience and
delivered an address that was full of
thoughts that went home to tha hearts
of the young men who heard 'him. He
spoke ot his early life and ot what he
is able to do now for the man who Is
"down and out."
A special musical service was given by
the choir of Dletz Memorial church, under
the direction of E. H. Packard. .
