Excerpt from United States Circuit Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit: Edward B. Perrin, Plaintiff in Error, Vs; The United States of America, Defendant in Error

In the Act of June 6, 1900 (31 Stats, re-enacted March 3, 1901 (31 Stats, it is provided that the selections of the lieu land should be confined to vacant, surveyed and non-mineral public lands which are sub jcet to homestead entry, 'not exceeding in area the tract covered by such claim or patent.

Under this legislation, Dr. Perrin had exchanged with the Government about acres of his individual holdings, lying within the exterior limits of the San Francisco Mountains Forest Reserve in Arizona. He was therefore entitled to select an equal acreage in the vacant lands Open to settlement outside of the reserva: tion; and the Government of the United States was under a duty, moral as well as legal, to make good to him this outside land. It was in the effort to select this outsideland, and secure the redemption of the Government's obligation, that Dr. Perrin met with this indictment.

Of the acres, Dr. Perrin agreed with the Sec retary of the Interior that acres should be placed on open land south of the 7th parallel, on desert land apparently; the other could be used on surveyed timber lands (p. The papers, through which Dr. Per rin's right to select and locate this outside land was manifested and exercised, are familiarly referred to as Forest Reserve Scrip. After disposing variously of this scrip acres of it in the way just indicated Dr. Perrin came to California with about acres of forest reserve scrip, looking for eligible selections and locations. His mission was a simple one and an innocent one, transparently so, to receive from the United States Government what that Government, in honor and in law, owed him - to obtain payment, so to speak, of the promis sory note of that Government, solvable in public land. And yet, that mission got him into trouble, serious trou ble; he was indicted - indicted, 111 very truth, on a charge of conspiring to defraud the United States out of what the United States honestly owed him.
