If patents should Issue under the fourth Section before re conveyance or judicial recovery under the second and proceedings should then be instituted to cancel the Patent issued to the Railroad in Case of a derision Adverse to the government in the proceeding instituted two Patent would be outstanding at the same time for the same land. The express words of the Section with reference to the time when the Patent shall Issue Are a the person or persons so purchasing in Good Faith shall be entitled to the land so purchased after the Grants respectively shall have been a the third question is As follows the fifth Section of said act provides that where a Railroad company hns sold lands not conveyed to or for the use of such company and where such lands Are for any Raaon excepted from the operations of the Grant of said company it shall to lawful for the Edna tide pure Aero thereof from said company to make payment to the unt Tod states for said land and thereupon patents shall Issue therefor to the said Bona fide purchaser or his heirs or assigns. A the question submitted under this Section is whether the proviso last above quoted is confined in its application to lands within the primary granted limits or whether it applies to lands within the indemnity of which the company has made selection but which has not been approved to it. A a the first Section of the act in the use of the word a Grant must have necessarily included both the primary and indemnity limits in the adjustment As it was doubtless intended that the adjustment should be a full and final one. The lands which under the adjustment were found not to be the property of the Railroad were intended to to free from the Cloud of claim by the Railroad and re stored to the Public Domain for disposition according to Law. The intent of the act a Hows that to carry out its purpose the word a Grant a wherever used in Tho second third und fourth sections must include the lands in both primary and indemnity limits As each directly or by accessory implication refers to the adjustment provided for in the first Section. A the Protection afforded and redress granted the settler by each of the sections is fully As important in the indemnity As in the primary limits. In order that the remedy May be adequate to redress the wrong the word a Grant in he fifth Section must be construed to include is it does in the preceding sections of the act both primary and indemnity upon receipt of the opinion Secretary Lamar directed the commissioner of the general land office to proceed at once and with As much dispatch As possible to adjust til land Grants under this act of March 3, 1887.
