Barron is. Sparks and sum is. The City l 0? Walla Walla. L before the Register and receiver of the land office at Vancouver w. T. A this is a controversy betwee i the above named 1 parties As to their right to enter the land described in their several declaratory statements now on be in this of be. I " As this Case has More. Or less connection with the contest Between the City of Walla Walla and the several parties claiming portions of the town site we deem it not improper to preface our decision in this Case by a Brief Sedtal of the history of the whole matter. In november 1858, e. A Bukron settled upon a portion of Unsin eyed l pm Walls Walla county and. Assw Ifim new car surveys were extended Over the same to wit in novem ber 1860, led his declaratory statement claim ing the South East Quarter of the South East Quad Tes of Section 19, the South West Quarter of the South West Quarter of Section 20, the North West Quarter of the North West Quarter of Section 29, l and the North East Quarter of the North East Quad l ter of Section 30, in township 7 North Orange 36 1 East of the Willamette Meridian. I subsequent to the settlement of Barron but prior to the Survey of the land by the govern ment John g. Sparks settled in the Vicinity and a or the Survey led his declaratory statement claiming the North West Quarter of Section 29, township and Range As above. On the is Day of november 1861, e. H. Bar Ron applied to enter the land claimed by him to this John g. Sparks objected alleging is. That he. Sparks was the rightful claimant of a portion of said land the North West Quarter of the North West Quarter of Section 29. 2d. That another portion of said land the South West Quarter of the South West Quarter of Section 29was a part of and included in the town site of Valla Walla. Thereupon the whole matter was continued till the is Day of april 1862, to give time for the production of testimony in relation thereto. In the meantime the county authorities were Noti de of the facts in the Case and on the 18th of de Cember 1861, they responded by Ling in the of be a declaratory statement claiming the South half of the South West Quarter of Section 20, town ship 7 North Range 36 East under the act of May 26th, 1824. On the 24th Day of May 1862, to which Date the hearing of the Case had been postponed by the Mutual consent of the parties the City of Falla Walla having been incorporated filed a Declara tory statement claiming the North East Southeast and South West quarters of Section 20, and the North East Quarter of the North West Quarter of Section 29, township 7 North Range 36 East and applied for time to produce testimony to establish her right to the same. Thereupon the Heiring of the several cases was continued until the 12th of August 1862, at which time the City by her attorney asked for further time to take testimony. The hearing of the Case As Between the City and e. H. Barron was by Mutual consent of the parties deferred until the St Day of november 1862. But John g. Sparks objected to a. Further continuance of the Case As Between him and Barron and also As be tween him and the City. The application for a further continuance was refused and the trial of the cases proceeded with the county having withdrawn from the contest. E. H. Barron was the St to apply to enter yet As his Case cannot be fully disposed of until the rights of the City Are determined we will con Sider John g. Sparks As applying to enter and e. H. Barron and the City As resisting the application. " John g. Sparks applies to enter the Northwest Quarter of Section 29, township 7 North Range 36 East under the act of 4th sept. 1841. E. H. Barron objects to the entry claiming that he is the rightful claimant to a portion of the same to wit the Northwest Quarter he being the prior settler the City of Walla Walla claims the North East Quarter of the said Northwest Quarter under the act of May 23, 1844. John g. Sparks denies the right of Barron to the forty acres claimed by him. Is. Because his Barron s settlement was prior to the extinguish ment of the Indian title. 2d. Because priority of settlement on unsure eyed lands confers no prior right. 3d. Because he had no right to Cross Quarter Section line to take a forty acre sub division upon which he had no improvements from another who also settled before the Survey who had. 4th. Because the lines of his claim do not Cor respond with the lines of his claim As taken prior to the Survey. St. Because he is not a Bona de settler hav ing taken said claim for Specula be purposes and not for his own exclusive use and Benet. We will consider the objections in the order in which they stand As above. List. With reference to the settlement prior to the extinguish ment of the Indian title but Little need be said on this Point for without discussing the question As to what rights Are acquired by virtue of settlement made prior to that time it is certain that such a settlement would not preclude a settler from pre Empting the land after the sex tin Guisment of the Indian title. See a Esters land Laws Page 423, no. 482, also Page 420, no. 477 and As the Indian title was extinguished in March 1859, at which time i Barron was claiming the land and As Sparks was not a settler until nov. 1860, Barron was still the prior settler. 2d. With reference to the rights acquired by priority of settlement on in Surat Yed lands the authorities which have been cited to us As bearing upon this Point and which we have carefully examined Are not to our minds suf a gently uniform and consistent to enable us to form a Correct Ludg ment and we must therefore turn to the itself. The act of 4th sept. 1841, certainly gave 1 the preference to the prior settler see Section 11l of said act and the act of july 17, 1854, extend 2 de the privileges granted by the act of 4th sept.1841, to settlers on surveyed lands to settlers on lands in Oregon and Washington territories a whether surveyed or a surveyed. The does not expressly say that settlers shall Sequire any rights by virtue of priority of settlement on a surveyed lands neither does it say they shall not and when doubts arise and Walla Walla drug store just received at the Walla Walla drug store a extensive assortment of drugs and medicines chemicals &c., together with a full assortment ofal usually found in a drug store. E Wurdem from a distance promptly ? on main Street opposite the Union hotel. May 31, 1862. 1137. Or. J. S. Craig. The is silent we must decide in accordance with what we deem to be the spirit and intent of the and in this Case we hold that it was the intention of Congress to give the preference to the prior settler. 3d. May a settler Cross a Quarter Section line to take a minor subdivision upon which he has no improvements from another who has p we hold that All Laws and instructions in relation to settlers on surveyed lands were by the act of july 17th, 1854, made applicable to a surveyed lands in this territory still we think we ought to give such latitude to and instructions As Peculiar circumstances May require in order to arrive at an equitable conclusion. The act of sept. 4th 1861 does not con be a settler to a technical Quarter Section and the act or april St 1346 p permits the entry selection or location of Quarte Quarter sections. If this privilege was denied to settlers on a surveyed lands much mischief might ensue for a settler on a surveyed lands might prior to the Survey have so Learned his dwelling and improvements As to Render it impossible for him to claim in any other Way without loss. In the Case before us Barron has no in prevents on the forty acres in dispute. Be however do not deem it necessary 1 for a settler to have improvements on each forty l acre tract. If the land is in compact form and includes his dwelling and improvements and he has Ful led All the requirements of the it is i enough and Baron has done All this. But so has Sparks and further he has improvements on it and he too settled before the Survey that sin Point of fact but the surveys were extended so soon after his settlement three Days that he can derive no moral advantage therefrom and at the i time he made the improvements he either did or might have known that Barron claimed the land. The improvements Are slight and Are not of such a nature that the loss of them would seriously affect him his dwelling Orchard and other Princi. Ple improvements being upon another Quarter Section. Had the improvements spoken of been i made prior to the Survey with no Means of nov l ing of any Adverse claim the Case would have presented a different aspect As it is we do not think they Are of such a character As to affect the rights of Barron. I 4th. The lines of Barrom claim do not Corres Pond with the lines of his claim As taken before the Survey. The act of july 17th 1854 provides that settlers shall give notice at the particular tract claimed thin six months after the Survey of the land is made and returned but does not specify the exact manner in which they shall be made to conform to the government surveys. Be hold it to be the duty of these who Settle before the Survey to conform to the Legal subdivisions after the Survey in such a manner As to include As far As practicable the land claimed by them before the Survey. By examining the plat submitted by j. G. Sparks and to the admission of which As evidence the attorney for Baron objected we and that the Eastern line of Barrons claim As to Ken prior to the Survey run diagonally at an an Gle of about 350 across the forty acres in dispute and so As to include about three Fth of said forty acres in his claim this Diagonal line resulted from the use of a pocket Compass without knowing its variation so that it was absolutely necessary to change his lines and we Are of the opinion that As regards the forty acres in dispute Barron has As far As is practicable complied with the . L St. As to whether Barron was or is a Bona l a de settler. L 1 the requirements of the in thin respect Are so Well known that we need not repeat the evidence of James Buckley one of Barrons witnesses shows that Barron of ered to give him 1 Buckley a in if he would build on it and that he told said Buckley that he intended to Start a. there is no proof however that he Ever l carried that intention into effect or that he Hasi. Taken any Steps which would prevent him from1 subscribing to the oath required of Preemption claimants. We do not recognize the expression of an intention unaccompanied by acts of suf client Force to work a forfeiture. See letters land Page 423. There is no proof that Barron is not acting in Good Faith and he has 301 Emily sworn that he is. If he is not he has per lured him Elf for the punishment of which crime provision is made in the . But we May not judge him. One Point More remains to be fully considered Sparks claims to have acquired some right by l virtue of a. Purchase of the Preemption right of . Roberts. We mention this Only to Sayi that no such right can be acquired for the reason 1 that All or any assignments of Preemption rights Are exp Ewy inhibited by . A settler must 1acquire the right of pre pm Pawn by virtue of disown acte and not by the ads of another. I in this Case we Are of the opinion that e. H. Barron is the rightful claimant to the North Westi 1-4th of Section 29. We will now proceed to examine the claim of the City of Walla Walla to the North East l-4th of the North West l-4th of Section 29. The evidence in this Case shows that in 1859 a or. Case was employed to Survey a portion of what is now the City of Walla Walls and that it was Laid 03 into streets alleys blocks a. When the Public surveys were extended Over the land in question it was found that the principle por Tion of the town As surveyed by or. Case was up on the South half of the South West Quarter of Section no. 20, and the plat of said Survey shows that three fractional blocks fell upon the forty acres claimed by John g. Sparks. In 1861 w. W. Johnson was employed by the commissioners of the county to Complete the Survey so As to in clude the whole of the South half of the South West Quarter of Section 20, and the said commis Sion ers filed a declaratory statement claiming the said South half of the South West Quarter and the said South half was incorporated. All these acts clearly indicate an intention to claim the said South half and no More. Subsequent to May lest there we nothing on be in this of be to indicate an intention on the part of the City to claim said land. There wee not and is not yet according to the evidence my building on the land in question occupied As pm can of business or Trade. The whole of the tee Timony seem. To Point to the Cone Lueion the the falling of the fractional blocks on the land in question was the result of Accident. Rather than design. We do not think the falling of a fractional portion of a Survey made before the Survey of the township upon a Legal subdivision of suf client importance either to authorize its entry As a town site or to exclude it from private Preemption especially As the Survey has not been followed by building upon said blocks or by any other acts indicative of an intention to claim said land. See a Esters land Laws Page 432, no. 493, also 437, 4th and St paragraphs and 441, no. is however urged that there is a Church and grave Yard on the land in question which Are used by the citizens of Walla Walla. The evidence of a. B. Roberts it a. The chum was erected on the ground after obtaining his consent he being the claimant of the land at that time and that neither the Church nor the grate Yard were established at the instance of the county or City authorities. We do not regard either the Church or the grave Yard As establish ing the right of the City to the land in dispute and we Are of the opinion that the City has failed to establish such right. There were other Points noticed by the attorneys on either Side but the above Are All that we1 deem pertinent to the matters at Issue and there fore think it unnecessary to notice therefore and in accordance with the fore going decide that John g. Sparks is entitled to enter the North East South East and South West Quarter of the North West one fourth of Section no 29, township no. 7 North Range no 36 East. And that e. H. Barron is entitled to enter thei North West Quarter of the same. Signed Joseph m. Fletcher Register. Samuel w. Barron receiver.

Parson Brownlow says of the rebellion and its originators know the origin of the rebellion and i know the originators and nothing Short of an old fashioned orthodox hell. That Burns with and Brimstone will Reward them adequately for their service. We shall not venture to Dis Pute this judgment. We Are no person As Brown Low is. The complaint about the running of the blockade will not last much longer. Soon a Large number of powerful vessels willbe added to the blockading sets rendering ingress and egress impossible to the rebels and their friends. Then the rebellion will be Cut of from almost its Only present support. If the rebels among us seek to have the War brought to our doors they May and another and More righteous kind of War brought to their own doors and into their houses before they expert it. A Good Many rebel watchers for. Morgan Are probably As much watched As watching. At Memphis and Nashville the sending Oreb Al sympathizers South is kept up. If citizens give evidence of disloyalty general Sherman and governor Johnson say go to Dixie an improvement upon the old and somewhat Kindred expression. A draft May be As necessary As taxes. A peo l ple cannot be relied on to furnish voluntarily the l men necessary for a War any More than they can contribute voluntarily the Money needed to support the government. The Richmond examiner says that Breckin i Ridge achieved great Honor at Baton but he did t achieve Baton Rouge. If some of our armies continue stagnant much longer we should think they would and them l selves covered with a Green slime. L men who talk to encourage treason Deserret that the Hangman s noose should strangle theirl words in their Windpipe. If our rebels growl and bark now we guess they will howl by and by howl like dogs or Der 1 wishes. I they say that Breckinridge in his late Battle lost an Arm. We Trust that in his next he will lose an army. Those who do not respect their obligations when placed under Bonds should be placed in Bonds. At present the dismal swamp is far from be ing the most dismal part of poor Virginia. Burying and marrying. An English paper says that recently an old Man named Cherrett residing at canford Mullen eng land had the misfortune to lose his wife and in proof of his affection for her whom he had sworn at the altar to love and cherish through life he performed the last sad of be in his Power for her remains by himself making the cof a. The Fune ral took place a few Days afterwards and when the inconsolable widower went to the clerk of canford Parish to pay the expenses he stated amid the tears that rolled Down his Cheeks with 1 great profusion that to save time he might per haps As Well do two things at the same time As one now he was there. The clerk looked some what amazed wondering what the two things were when the old Man informed him that he would pay for the banns being published of marriage to a second wife. The fact is he had fallen in love with the woman who refused his St love. The reason he gave for his haste in contracting a second marriage was that the Cherry season was coming on and he had no one else to keep the Birds from his Cherry Trees. Our Friend Jones has been icing homage to a pair of right eyes and talking tender things by Moonlight. A Short time since Jones resolved to make his destiny secure. Accordingly he fell on his Knees before the fair Dulcinea and made his passion known. She refused him fist out. Jumping to his feet he informed her in Choice terms that there were us Good so in the see u Ever were caught. Judge of the expression of our worthy Swain when she coolly replied yes. But they Don to bite St toss 2" Jones had Learned s lesson no. 43. England rebuked by englishmen. A Calm and Lucid exposition of american principles appears in the London review. That Jour Nal which has lately stemmed the current of English prejudices chides its contemporaries who have argued that our practice does not so Cord with our avowed principles and shows that secession is rightly regarded by our government As rebellion. The review put the Cue to in chs men thus. Should we be inconsistent if we forcibly pre vented the Irish from setting up for themselves however much they wis red it according to these writers it would be necessary for us in such 3 Case to defend ourselves by the wretched quibble that we never passed an act of parliament to assert principles which we All believe and should set upon ourselves without he?m,�9l, As our technic Langue see was Craig before those principles prevailed we have a perfect right to disregard in practice what we All accept in the Ory and so to neglect our principles without pre Iudice to our consistency. No position can be More und Igni de than playing fast and Loose in this manner professing Liberal opinions on All occasions in which our own interests Are not immediately concerned and throwing them up and sorting to antiquated Legal phraseology when they Are. It is utterly impossible to distinguish the Case of Ireland from the Case of the Southern states by an argument which stops Short of the principle that nothing can justify armed resistance to an established government. Whoever there fore charges the United states with inconsistency ought either to maintain that we should be bound to allow the Irish to proclaim their Independence of us As soon As they please or to maintain that no amount of mis government and oppression on our part would justify them in doing so. No one would accept either Branch of this dilemma yet it is altogether inevitable if the americans Are charged with inconsistency. The London Spectator of August 2d, in an article entitled the test hour of America says a Good word for the North and adds we have not lost Hope yet. It is almost Hial Phemy to suppose that All this loss and woe this expenditure of life and Energy this terrible break in the March of a generation can end simply in nothing in a separation that will leave the National crime More rampant than before. The opinion of the silent millions has still to be sought and it May astonish the prophets again As it slide after Sumter fell. The quiet yeomanry who in great crises always govern the states Are not represented by the wire pullers or by the press they control or by the City population of new York. They May be maturing their minds for t last and grander a Ort preparing slowly As is their went for the revolution which shall reinvigorate the National life. At the very last moment they May step Forward follow some chosen Leader declare the War a War of principles and precipitate the Ower of Twenty millions of men once More upon the South. Even then they May not win for the South maddened by certain de feat and dreading the loss of property less that subjugation May Rise to the level of their Situa Tion make the offer which the negroes in York town say they expect and Promise their slaves Complete and immediate Freedom. But Short of that resolve there would in the event of a new rising of the people be still no Chance for the South and the rising is no More impossible than americans declared the last to be. This May be the resolve of the silent mass but meanwhile the Only men in America acting with revolution Ary vigor Are the slaveholders of the have All the strength of an oligarchy added to All the resources of despair. The conscript 1 Tion it is evident has been obeyed the produce of the country is at its leaders disposal and they have found if not generals at least men who understand How Volunteer campaigns must be won. The news As we said to disheartening for All who believe the cause of the North is still amid Many errors and much half hearted Ness thei cause of Freedom.
