Commissioner Tnllmnn says tho

olnts out thnt there Is serious quos-i
Ion of whether tho lands in the sog-

"Over half of the lands In list 11. (
b orlclnalh- filed" writes Commts-1
loner Tallman. "were eliminated be
fore segregation on account of Its,
non.desert. timber character. After
segregation It has been urged that I
the segregated lands are non-desert i
In character and would, without Ir
r'gatlon produce profitable crons.
This contention appears to be sup
norted by a special agent of this of
flco thnt tho moisture Is wfth'n two
or three Inches of the surfecs. Is suf
ficient to support a dense growth of
black pine nnd a scattering growth of
underbrush where the timber Is not
too thick, and a fairly good growth of
grass on the open meadow ianns.
' Land thnt produces a natural growth
of timber Is not subject to desert
Morson llml llearlnir.
Commissioner Tallman points out
that when the probable non-desert
character of the land was reported to
the department Mr. Morson was glv-,
f en an oral hearing on the matter. The
department took the position that as '
a practical matter It would not . dls-j
turb Its action of October 21, 190... !
"Hut the department," says the'
commissioner, "further advised: 'If,!
within the statutory time, the terms
of tho Cnrcy act shnll not have been
carried out, tho government will have
occnsion to net.' Accordingly this
question must bo considered.
