Under the provisions of the act,
squatters on the land who have gone
on with the intention of settling and
making homes will have the first
chance to purchase the lands upon
which they are settled, at the valua
tion fixed upon them by the govern

and no improvements made by set
tlers being figured in. Ninety days
are allowed squatters for election.
Many New Settlers.
Since It became known that the
bill would pass and that the prior
right of purchase would be allowed
settlers, many have rushed in to se
lect the best pieces remaining un
claimed, until at present all the best
land has been squatted upon, in nu

pay them a fair price therefor.
