Ifc was a complicated question of priority of claim, or, rather, a question whether the United States .and patents,, even when based upon erroneous survey records,had precedence over othei grants made under corrected surveys and subsequent legislation. The, highest authority in the land bas decided that the federal gayernment has full power to prescribe rules and regulations governing the sale and. disposal of public lands, and that the state has no power to interpose new rules or obstructions to such dlsposi« tion, ' • The case has been in the courts ten years. It was claimed that the state, grant of the lands superseded the; government grant, because the Ijittfe was irregular iu surveys, but this "decision makes the original—tbe government grant, all right. Some of the land in this vicinity was sold to settlers by the F. & P. M. railroad and the state of Michigan commenced suit against the company, and the Michigan supreme court said that the state had "neither justice, equity, nor good confidence to support it." Early in tbe si aire of the matter the Michigan Land and Lumber Co. was formed, the object being to take the title from the state to all such land as Sleepei's investigation had shown to be swamp and overflowed land by tbe old survey and not suoh by the new. These lands they could buy from the state at -51.25 per acre, or even less for script; and, acting on this theory, thev took up valuable pine lands, farms ancl even villages, cleared and improved, and tbe state of Michigan, "- '^officers acHT,<? for it, was kind eiiuugh to issue two uccessary patents. The village of Eoscomon was one- of numerous ones thus covered, the village of Clare and some valuable farms in tbis vicinity was another. For 10 shillings an acre, this company was buying up villages, covered with buildings, valuable pine lands, such as those in Kalkaska connty, which had been patented to Senator Palmer by the United Statesgovernment20years previously, and many minor villages and farms in the belt of counties to the west and northwest of Saginaw bay, -The state of Michigan was selling .at a nominal cost, this improved property to the Michigan Land & Lumber Co., reckless of consequences. In short, if this claim „ould have been sustained, r,be company would have been tbe owners of the most valuable land in Michigan with a ridiculously small investment, and those who had expended money for titles to land which they thought they owned, would have lost their money. A few people, settlers upon the land, were frightened by this claim and made a settlement with the new company, paying considerable sums of money for a release from the clouded titles. But probably there were not many of these, although this claim has rested as an incubus upon everybody's title, and upon every business dependent upon these surveys. "Fortunately for the people of Michigan, this decision places at rest all controversy about the lands concerning which question has been raised. Unfor6unately, however, for the tax-payers of the state the money expended by Mr. Sleeper and his followers in furtherance ot this absurd claim of the Michigan Land & Lumber Co.has gone past recall.
