Governor Takes Right Stand
on Land Grant Problem
Is View Expressed.
INTERVIEWS ARE OBTAINED
Legislators Agree Subject Should
Receive Attention ' and Study
Before Definite Action Can
Be Decided On.
Members of the Multnomah deleara-
tlon in the Legislature who were inter
viewed last night are almost unani
mous in believing that a special ses
sion of the Legislature to take up the
Oregon & California land-grant ques
tion would not be wise. A general be
lief was expressed that Governor
"VVithycombe has correctly summed UP
the situation In his statement published
yesterday morning. The interviews
I. X. Day The crux of the whole sit
uation is to be had from consideration
of the following conditions: Congress
granted the lands to the railroad upon
condition that they should be sold to
actual settlers at a price not to exceed
J2.50 per acre. In 1307 the Legislature
of Oregon adopted a resolution asking
mat tne railroad be compelled to sell
the lands under the terms of the grant,
under penalty of forfeiture. The 1915
Legislature passed the famous "mid
night resolution" which calls for the
enforcement of the conditions of the
grant in other words, that the lands
be open to settlers upon payment of
$2.50 an acre. The Supreme Court of
the United States has said that the con
ditions of the grant are enforceable,
convenants, and all that remains now
to be done is for Congress to declare
the manner in which the lands shall
be sold. I cannot see how at the pres
ent time a session of the Legislature
would be of any service in solving the
problem. It is to be borne in mind
always that the railroad interest ex
tends beyond the 12.50 per acre. The
enforceable covenants insure to it a set
tlement of the land. The Interest of the
railroad from now on must be in the
settlement and development of the
lands to the greatest extent. Its inter
est is the interest of the people, which
is not the creation of extensive re
serves. A railroad running through a
forest reserve has small chance of be
coming a paying property and a factor
in upbuilding the state. It appears to
me that at the present time the Legis
lature should hesitate in reversing its
action. inasmuch as the Supreme
.'ourt of the United States has
handed down a decision which
practically confirmed the request of the
State of Oregon made by two Legisla
tures that the lands be opened for set
tlement. I favor action to insure to
Oregon the largest participation in the
benefits from the sale of these lands,
and would gladly see as much as we
. can secure go for the benefit of our
school, irrigation and road develop
ments. I believe that Oregon has an
equitable rigrht to a large share in the
surplus value of these lands, and be
lieve it is the peculiar and particular
work of the Oregon delegation in Con
gress to secure the same.
K. V. Littlefield I have been think
ing the problem over very carefully
and I cannot see the neccssitv for calf
ing a special session. I believe that
.-wc.ttti c anuuia wait until the
people have made known their wishes
in some substantial form through the
Chambers of Commerce or some body
of that eort indicating what they
think best, to be done. I can see no
way in which a special session of the
Legislature would be of use at the
S. B. Huston 'I have been rather
under the weather lately and haven't
been able to study the case as it deserves.-
In the present status of the
case I am not in favor of a special
esslon, but I may change my mind
after I have looked into it further. On
general principles, I am against a spe
cial session, however.
I'lowden Stott I would not favor a
special seesion until the land-grant
question had been most thoroughly
onsidered by those best versed in it
and it had been determined whether
fcuch a session were necessary. I think
It could be handled at present by some
representative state committee at large
which could meet and agree upon the
procedure advisable with regard to the
land-grant cases. It will then be time
enough for the Governor to consider
whether to call a special session.
Arthur Langguth I don't see that
there is any immediate need of a spe
cial session to consider the Oregon &
California land-grant case. There is
nothing a special session could do ex
cept get together and talk things over.
The whole affair is in the formative
and debating period. I think the Gov
ernor and state officials are amply able
r'o cope with the situation now Per-
ih".hlly' Ithink mucn as Governor
ithycombe does, that the land ought
to be settled. It should be sold to the
highest bidder, and if the highest bid
lor portions of the land should be $40
an acre, let it be sold for $40 an acre,
in the meantime, however, the whole
matter should be fully discussed, and
rrom as many viewpoints as possible
so that after sentiment is crystallized
and a definite plan is mapped out the
Legislature would know what to do if
It should then seem advisable to call
a special session.
nLi!iSK.Ueh"Hef0re we spend money
h ?Jetra esi I think the matter
KU 2 vb caPefuIIy considered, and it
should be determined whether it will be
of any real advantage to the state If
not, it is no use to spend the money on
an extra session. But if we can do
anything of actual value tT the stat2
I should not be opposed to such a ses-
Ben Selling, Speaker of the House I
haven t received the Governor's letter
and don t want to comment on the sit
uation until I get it.
Oscar W. Home I have Just re
turned from business In Montana and
have had no opportunity to give the
Oregon & California land-grant ques
tion proper consideration. 1 have read
ex-Governor Wests letter and Gov
ernor V ithycombe' a statement. If t
would be to the advantage of the state
to call a special session, then on Eh..,ij
t5 ".I bUt Until 1 have hal tl to
study the question better I am inclined
to agree with Governor Withycombe
that a special session is not necessary.
S. B. Cobb I do not favor calling a
special session. I do not think it is
necessary, and I believe it is too soon
for us to begin to formulate too definite
a plan You cannot take up a question
of such great Importance and settle It
offhand in a day, or in a month even
Conrad P. Olson I don't see what
possible advantage could result to the
state from a special session. The
United States Supreme Court said It
was up to Congress to make rules for
the disposition of the Oregon & Cali
fornia lands, and that if Congress
didn't do it. the United States District
Court would. A special session would
only occasion a waste of money and
would lead to nothing. Its proceedings
would be all conjecture and specula
tion. The Legislature has done al
ready all it could do towards protecting-
the state's interest.
D. C. Lewis My own impressions are
that such things should be left entirely
to the Governor. The burden ought to
be on the Governor, and he should be
left with free bands to woric out the
Pan Kellaher I do not favor a spe
cial session. The Supreme Court, in
its decision, has said that Congress is
to deal with the land grant. I think
it's up to Congress and I don't eee
where we have any right to butt in.
A special session would cost a lot of
money, and in the present condition
of business I am sure the people don't
want that extra tax to pay. Aa a mem
ber of the State Senate. I am opposed
to a special session and am perfectly
willing to rely on Congress to handle
L. J. Wentworth I am strongly op
posed to a special session of the Leg
islature at this time. I do not know
that the Legislature could accomplish
anything, and in common with many
others. I have no clear conception
yet as to what policy should be fol
lowed by the state. I think we would
better wait until we all understand
the situation better and can have some
thing specific on which to base a spe
cial session. If it should appear that
a special session could do any good.
Robert S. Farrell I favor a special
session under certain conditions. if
the Legislature could work in con
junction with our Senators and Hep
resentatlves in Congress, and formulate
a plan whereby we could make def
inite arrangements, so the funda from
the Oregon & California lands could
be divided between the railroad and
the state school fund and perhaps the
irrigation fund. I think a special ses
sion would be all right. 1 feel sure
that Congreta would take note of It
if sucn a plan were worked out. with
the influence of our three Representa
tives and two Senators and our own
people. Something must be done.
What I am especially concerned in is
to save the taxes, aggregating over
$1,000,000 to the state, which should
be done without robbing the railroad
company. I wouldn't advise an extra
session under any other conditions
and it should confine its business to
consideration of the land grant ques
