THIS paper furnishes more valuable law Informa-
tion for less money, and is read by more land attor-
neys and real estate dealers, by more homestead,
pre-emption, and other land claimants, and by more
mine owners, engineers, and superintendents, than
any other publication in the United States.
ALL Registers and Receivers of the U.
S. land offices are authorized to receive
subscriptions for this paper.
BRAINARD'S LEGAL PRECE-
DENTS.
We welcome to the field of land and
mining law journalism,  Brainard's Legal
Precedents, the first number of which
monthly publication ai3peared in March.
It is an 8vo., with 48 pages-40 pages be-
ing reading matter-equal to nearly 17
pages of the LAND OWNER. The annual
subscription price is $2.00. M. D. Brain-
ard, Editor, Washington, D. C. Send for
a sample copy.
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT.
Beginning with the tenth volume (this
month), this publication will be issued
semi-monthly. As nearly as possible, the
dates of issue will be the 1st and 15th of
every month.
This change is made in response to a
demand for earlier information, and from
a great increase in the matter that ought
to be laid before our readers.
The subscription price must be increased
accordingly, and THREE DOLLARS will be
the annual subscription price until further
notice.*
SWAMP LAND CONTESTS.
Y. R., of Camden, Ark., states that after
a man has contested the State's right to
to select acertain tract as swamp, paid his
money for the many expenses, and taken
his time and attention therefor, it fre-
quently happens that some fellow who has
been trespassing thereon, farming the
alleged State land, and cutting off timber,
thereby enjoying the rights of a 'citizen
without paying any taxes, steps in and, on
the plea of having valuable improvements
and being a settler thereon, homesteads
the land without any further trouble, and
at a trifling expense, thus getting the ben-
fit of another party's labor and money.
To prevent these contests from being
stopped, and to induce parties to protect
government interests, Y. R. suggests that
these so-called settlers be cited to appear at
the hearings, and be allowed to set up such
proof as they choose touching their set-
tlement7 ixpirovements, etc.

THE January LAND OWNER published 30
decisions and 9 instructions; the February
LAND OWNER gave 14 decisions and 11 in-
structions; while the March LAND OWNER
contained 24 decisions and 4 instructions.
Besides this material, these three issues
contained 8 pages of patents and other val-
uable matter. The LAND OWNER's col-
umns are solid with good things.
AMERICAN NEWSPAPERS IN 1883.
From the new editon of Messrs. Geo. P.
Rowell & Co's I American Newspaper Di-
rectory, which is now in press, it appears
that the newspapers and periodicals of all
kinds issued in the United States and Ter-
ritories now reach the imposing total of
11,196. This is an increase of 585 in twelve
months. Nebraska's total grew from 175
to 201, and Illinois' from 890 to 904. The
most remarkable change has occurred in
the Territories, in which the daily papers
have grown from 43 to 63, and the week-
lies from 169 to 243-Dakota being the
chief area of activity. The number of
monthlies throughout the country grew
from 976 to 1,034, while the dailies leaped
from 996 to 1,062.
LAND PERSONALS.
GEN. ELLERY C. FORD, the mining lawyer
of this city, is a powerful antagonist in a
contest before the Land Office and Interior
Department. He is retained in nearly every
mineral land case of importance.
THE firm of Julian & Meloy', attorneys-
at-law, of Washington, consists of George
W. Julian, Chairman of Public Land Com-
mittees in the 38th, 39th, 40th, and 41st
Congresses, and William A. Meloy, of the
U. S. Supreme Court Bar.
F. T. BicKoRD, formerly of the New
York Tribune office in this city, has been
appointed Special Agent of the General
Land Office.
EVANS, PADOETT & EMMONS, of Wash-
ington, D. C., constitute a strong firm of
energetic young lawyers, who look closely
after their clients' interests.
GENERAL WALTER H. SMITH, Assistant
Attorney General for the Interior Depart-
ment under Secretary Delano, and a prom.
inent lawyer in Ohio for many.years prior
thereto, gives his attention to land and
mining contests before the Land Depart-
ment and the Supreme Court.
FARM property is the only real estate,
because it is the foundation of all wealth,
and gives value to all other property.
