Not illustrated. 1898 edition. Excerpt: ...the other, and when the deputy makes his returns to this office, and they are examined and platted and sent to your office, this office could at once be notified of any discrepancy in his field work, and the deputy notified of the corrections required. These corrections could then be made the next summer, and also a reexamination if considered necessary, and the whole work could then be completed within a year after being returned to this office. It must be well understood that in this district only four months each year are available for field work with a solar instrument. This is why, in justice to the deputy surveyor, the examination should be made the same season of the survey, otherwise two years, or perhaps more, most elapse before his accounts can be ready for payment, which in most cases must absorb his profits in the payment of interest. In support of the foregoing statement, I will cite a few cases from the records of this office: Contract No. 400. April 19, 1895. Alvin Bystrom, deputy surveyor. T. 26 N., Rs. 2 and 3 W. Reported for examination November 8,1895, June 25, 1896, and April 5, 1898. Special agent furnished data for examination October 30, 1897. No report whether or not examinod. Contract No. 490. November 9, 1895. Alfred S. Ruth. Fractional T. 11 N., R. 7.W. Survey reported for examination September 1,1896, and October 9,1897. Returns to General Land Office July 27,1897. Survey again reported for examination April 5, 1898. Contract No. 493. March 24, 1896. McPherson and Wyche. Resurvey of part of Yakima Indian Reservation Boundary.
