Taft Wants Congress to Hurry.
. President Taft has asked the lead

The Administration bill authorizing
the President to withdraw public
lands temporarily will receive the
votes of a number of Western Sena

the bill be defeated. Moreover, the
bill Is to be forced to carry througH

Taft Increased the public domain
available to homestead entry to 1,
182,812 acres -and Increased the na
