Abstract

In the official letter in this case, mailed February 24, 1887, it was stated that the case would not be considered on its merits until the questions involved in applicant's prior case filed December 11th, 1879, which was then before the Commissioner on appeal, should be decicded. The petition in the said prior case having now been decided, action on this case as last presented is asked.##In a letter of February 24, 1887, the point is raised for the first time that this case is not properly a division of the said prior application, in view of changes in the practice of the office since the division was made.##I do not know what changes in practice are referred to, and am not aware of any rule of practice which makes this case an improper division.##If this objection is insisted upon, therefore, it is requested that the reasons for it shall be more fully expalined and refernce made to the rules or decisions of the Commissioner on which it is based.##The division was considered a proper one at the time it was made, and in all previous official actions it was treated as a legitimate division.
