It is estimated that the public don..

An exceedingly important recomm. inlat ion
of the secretary relates to tht? manner In which
contests and IKi 'ated cas-s -i ..win • out of el-
forts to obtain government land are d- -
termlned. I concur in the opinion that tin-
commissioner of the general land oillc- -honM
bo relieved of this duty of d- idin ' liti ited
land cases; that a non-partisan co in should be
created to pans on such cases and that decis-
ions or this court should be ilnal. at lea -t •> far
as the decisions or tho department are ilnal.
The registers and receivers who originally
tear and decide those disputes should be In-
vented with authority to e.impel witn-s-uo
attend and tcstiry before them. Thou,'. th"
