to the county court continued:

sentative Sinuott. chairman or the
public lands committee, which
will have Jurisdiction over any
amendments which may be nwes

intact the amounts to be paid
them under the recent act.
"I am confident that the intent
of congress was not to modify the
law approved June 9. 1919. which
provides how the moneys received
from the sates of Umber, and lands
of true former Oregon aftd. Califor
