When rightfully severed, it is no Ion
ger part of the land, and there is no
restriction upon its sale. Its sever
ance under such circumstances is ii
effect only a legitimate use of the
land.
If the timber should be severed
for the purpose of sale alone; in
other words, if the cutting of the
timber was the principal thing, an d
not the incident, then the cutting
would be wrongful, and the timber,
when out, become the absolute pr:p-
erty of the United States.
The presumption is against the
authority of the Indians to cut and
sell the timber. The purchaser, to
maintain his title under a purchase
from the Indians, must show that the
timber was rightfully severed from
the land. If he does not show that,
the United States may seize or re-
plevy it, or bring an action for its
value.
A NEW CIRCULAR SAW MILL.
Practical mil men cannot fail to be
interested in the descriptionpresent-
ed elsewhere of a new iron frame,
double circular saw mill.
Tho first mill of this kind has just
been completed by the Reliance
'Works, Milwaukee, under the incess-
ant supervision of Mr. G. M. Hinkley
its inventor. Mr. Hinkley is an in-
ventor of genius and reputation, and
the quality of work invariably turned
out by the Reliance Works of Messrs
E. P. Allis & Co. has gained that es-
tablishmentthe confidence of mill men
in all quarters. Our sketch of this la-
test contribution of science to the re-
quirements of manufacturers of lum-
ber will be found on page 369 of this
issue of the WiSCOsIxN LurBnzuAx.
