Interior Department Overrules Land
Office in Case of South Dakota
riERRE. 8. D., July 21.-(Spec!al.)-In th
cafe of Kffie M. Walker and A. O. Stanger
aa transferee for a tract of land In Hyde
county the secretary of the Interior over
rules the decision of the general land office
in cancelling the proof of Miss Walker to
tract of land in Hyde county. The claim
ant filed on the tract In 1906 and made reel.
dence on the. claim and commuted the entry
In the spring ot 1906. Later she sold the
tract and In August of 190$ A special agent
of the government recommended cancella
tion of the proof on account of Insufficient
residence and cultivation.
On a hearing it was shown 'that the
claimant had provided a comfortable small
house on the tract; had broken five acre,
which was cultivated and used the claim as
a horn while she taught school at a point
about four miles from the tract. She
boarded near her school during that time.
but went to the claim every Friday evening,
remaining until Monday morning, except
during the holiday vacation, which she
spent with her parents at Huron. The
house was comfortably furnished and was
supplied with sufficient fuel to withstand
the severity of winter and tho residence
was held on th land up to the time ot
When proof was made the claimant left
her furniture in th building until a part
of the structure and contents were stolen,
when she sold what was left of the building
and took away her belongings. This was
given as one ot the evidences of bad faith
on her part. After a review of the case
the holdings of the general land office are
reversed and the proof sustained. This
case will be of more than passing interest
to many young women who are holding
homesteads while teaching school and will
likely be used as a precedent to many ilk
cases which are numerous in th northwest.

IDENTITY OF PREACHER ,
WHO KILLED HIMSELF
Rev. Athelatan Corn forth Waa For
merly Saeeessfni Stock Broker
' In London. -
LONDON, July tl. Rev. Athelstan Corn-
forth, who committed suicide in New York
yesterday, is said to be Identical with a
London stock broker of that name whose
creditors, Ignorant of his fate, met today
In the bankruptcy court .
Cornforth had been a clergyman, serving
pastorates in this pity and at Nottingham.
Ha was married and leaves a family. Some
years ago he left th ministry to engage 'In
business. Beginning as a broker, he built
up a big patronage and during tho South
African boom th turnover of his brokerage
hous was larger than that of any similar
firm in London.
But domestic worries preyed severely on
his mind. Last year his physicians ordered
him to take a rest. He did. In the mean
time his burlness waa allowed to drift until
today his affairs reached th bankruptcy
court His creditors met today, unaware
that th bankrupt had taken his life.
