Controversy Over Uccil.
A deed recently Issued to F, A. War
ner under a. sale contract Vy the. com
missioner of public lands of tho state
will be the bono of contention In couit
In a few days.
When the tlmo came for which a deed
could be. given air. Warner made ap
plication for the deed and made tho
usual showing as to payments, etc., and
the deed was issued. Since tho deed was
sent, out Williamson & Fisher, a Lincoln
real estate firm, made application for a
deed and for tho same property nnd
made a showing that they had been pay
ing the rental on thq land under the
contract for several years.
Tho land lies across tho road from
the farm on which Mr. Warner resides,
lr. Deuel county. Wllllamspn & Fisher
have notified tho land commissioner that
they, will begin court proceedings to have
the deed Issued to Warner set aside and
a new deed mado out to them. ',
The; payment of lease, and . sale con
tract money each year is made about
the same way as taxes are paid. Tho
amounts duo come Into ttlo offico and
it Is no affair of the state who pays the
amount, Just so long as tho proper re
ceipts are received from the county
treasurer In which tho land Is 'situated.
Just how Warner happened to make the
showing to get the deed will probably
come out In the trial.
