mittee appointed by the bousa to in
vestigate the condition of the land
department submitted a report today.
It found much confusjon prevailing
in the records, wbile many oountiee
are behind in their accounts with ti e
department. The report says:
"We are convinced by what we
thus far .have seen of records that an
effort baa been made during the past
two years to correct the methods of
business in the land department, but
such an inextricable tangle existed-for
fears tbst it is absolutely necessary
at any reasonable cost, to restify the
existing evils snd place the land de
partment on a substantial basis."
The committee etks authority to
oontinuethe investigation witb ex
pert help after adjournment, report
