the present Congress will pass a bill au
thorizing an Arid Land Commission, and f
it Is probable the results of the Investiga
tions of this commission will have some
effect on the lands In question. Tho ac
tion withdrawing the lands from sale was
done with the approval of Governor Mc
Bride, whose views were asked because
he Is chairman of the Capitol Commission
now having In charge the erection of the
Capitol annex. The Capitol grant In
Western Washington is more than ample
to secure the payment of tho Capitol
Commissioner Callvcrt says the leasing
of state lands, particularly in Eastern
Washington, has reached such proportions
that he will be impelled to ask the next
Legislature to authorize the appointment
of a special leasing agent to be stationed
In that section. The Income from, leased
lands, which Is now very large, he be
lieves, can be greatly Increased with the
aid of such an agent.
