the N.W. 1/4 of section 30, T. 63 N., of range 11 W., of the fourth
principal meridian, according to the government survey in said St.
Pending the action, the land was conveyed to the Midway Company,

Plaintiff in error claims title under a patent issued by the
United States to Emil Hartman, dated October 21, 1895, by whom the
land was conveyed to the Germania Company, and by the latter to the
plaintiff in error.
The defendants claim title under a certain location of Sioux
half-breed scrip issued under the Act of July 17, 1854. 10 Stat.

The trial court rendered judgment for defendants, which was

was then allowed by the chief justice of that court.
