What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Important Land Office Decision. 1 _ t- '¿Shaw -.THE CUBAN GOVERNMENT. b “ V ’ — - ------ - - February 1, 1 9 0 2 . Is the D.ate Sot F ifteen-Y e a r -O ld ..Lad the Victim *of Foul Play,. The body of a 15 year old, boy was found on the bank of thq_ Mis­ souri river south of Glasgow. Indi­ cations show plainly that the boy had been murdered. His skull had been crushed with some blunt instrument. The boy: had been dond several days, when - found and tho , identification- was not complete, except that, from a latlor found upo.n his person, ho is supposed to be Harry Drabbs, son of a resident of that name of Hinsdalo.. A few days ago another boy was seen near Glasgow with a horse which had been ridden by young Dabbs, and he is being looked for as tho suspected murderer, but tbere are but few duos to his identity or whither bo has gone. Gives Up tho Attempt, Tho officials of Missoula county For Its Organization. . - Washington, Juno 15;~It. ¡s' now learned that when the- Cuban com­ mission was in.Washington tho dele­ gates informed-Secretary Root that they did not think it- would bo pos­ sible to have the Cuban gove'rnmont organized before Fobruary 1, owing to tho fact that cortahi procedures must be had under their now consti- tutioD. The opinion is expressed at tho war department that thero will bo little or no difficulty in effecting « thq.chango from American military control to Cuban civil control. Civil service, which General Wood has organized, is largely composed of Cubans, and it is believed that the new' government will utilize this machinery. In the caso of Benjamin A against the stuto of Montana involv­ ing title to eighty acres of land in tho “Big Hole valley, Beaverhead county, tho secretary of the interior has do- cidod.tliat a settler who locatos on school laud prior to its survey may hold the land, if he filed upon i t as a homestoud, and will loso it if ho filed upon it as a desort laud. In the caso in quostiou Mr. Shaw mado a desort onlry upon tho land iu 1898 and by a subsequent survey was found to bo located on socliou 36, which was school land. Tho laud office at Missoula denied Shaw a final receipt on account of tho decision iu the Noyos caso. Ho appealed to tho commissioner of tho general land offico who affirms tho decision of tho Missoula laud office. Following is tho conclusion of tho socrotary of tho intorior addrossod to tho commissioner of Ihogoneral land office: “On January 24, 1901, your office decision hold Shaw’s entry for can­ cellation upon tho authority of de­ partmental decision in tho case of Noyos vs. stale of Montana, whoroin it wns hold that tho provisions of tho act'of February 28, 1891, protecting settlement rights acquired upon school lands prior to survey, aro in­ applicable to a dosort land entry. ‘Appeal has boon taken to tho depart­ ment. ' “ It is clear that the amendatory act of 1891 only protects settlements made upon said school land sections prior to survoy, with a viow to pre­ emption or homestead entry. Said soctio'ns, whetlior survoyod or unsur- veyod, rornaiu resorvod from further ontry under the land laws.
