regarding the matter with Clay Tall

for the opening, Mr. Turner said It
would occur In the early spring. Mr.
Tillman said that the plans were ful
ly prepared and that only other mat
ters connected with the land depart
ment were preventing the' conclud
ing of final arrangements. Of the

time, the, larger proportion Is situ
ated In Douglas county and the en
tire amount is agricultural land, it
being the amount out of 607,360
acres, comprising the grant in two
counties, which are so designated.
