Commissioner of General La.nd
Office Iaauea Statement.
Commissioner Richards, of the
General Laud Ollice, has given ont the
following statement couooruinij the
policy and practice of the land
eftice in the matter of the withdrawal
of public lauds from settlement:
There seems to bo a misapprehen
sion respecting withdrawals of public
lauds from entry under certaiu of the
laud laws aud suspension of final
action upon certain classes of entries
already made. Generally shaking,
land is withdrawn from entry iu
order to preveut its being appro
priated iu a manner or for a purpose
not contemplated by law.
In consenuenco of a protiosod
forest reserve, a withhdrawal is made
of all tho land that will probably be
included iu its boundaries in order to
guard against speculative entries
uiadu for the purpose of obtaining lieu
Withdrawals under the irrigation
act are for tho purjioso of reserving
the land for homestead entry the
only kind permitted by tho act and to
prevent sioeulativo entries. Land
containing oil or minerals is with
drawn from agricultural entry, as
mineral lauds are sold in smaller
quantities an 1 at higher prices than
"Filial action is often usicndcd
uiHiu individual eutriea or a class of
entries iu certain localities ponding
an investigation as to whether or not
there has been a compliance with the
requirements of the law. Thero is
no withdrawal of land in this cornice
tiou or any suspension of the law nor
interference with entries properly
"In November, l'.H)3, there was such
a susiH'iision of final action upon en
tries made nuder tho timber and stone
act iu Washington, Oregon and Call
foruia. This sus(iensiou as made up
on evidence of collusive entries in
those states whereby individuals aud
corporations were obtaining title to
largo areas of valuable timber land,
whereas the law provides tho entry
shall be nutde for the exclusive use
aud benefit of tho entrymaii.
"That this action did not hinder
or Interfere with entries under this
act is shown by the fact that while
there were 21117 timber aud stone eu
tries made iu t.n states named dur
ing the fiscal year ending June RO,
VMY1, there were 11145 such entries
made in those states during the fiscal
year ended Juno .10, ltHl',1, and of this
latter number, SJM4 entries were made
after January 1, 1IH1!I, while the or
der of huhj elision was iu force, whili
but 'J1U7 such entiies were made In
the entire fiscal year IUII'2.
As fast as tho entries iu these
stales cau examined, all of those
which have been proiierly made are

A QUEER LEGAL TANGLE
Who VV'&a Hung
A remarkable story comes from
the ltelgiiin Congo. A native of the
IiaKoka tribe was to have been bangeil
for cannibalism, and during his im
prisonment was so worked Uxn by
the represent at iniH of the missionary
haplain as to the happiness of the
world into which he was about to
enter that the nergo offered to hang
himself out of hand to get there.
This sirting offer was not accepted,
and the nergo was h inged by oidiiiary
procedure. After hanging about 10
minutes the doctor pronounced the
culprit, to be dead, and the body win)
being carried to the cemetery by four

of heaven to tin; hearers, who lied,
dropping their burden. The man
then walked into the cemetery, sal
on a grave, and when soldiers came to

they also Is-lnugcd to heaven, am!

ro we losing our freedom of speech
and actiou? Tho Independent thinks
we are, and that moral freedom
generally in this country is wantisg.
'Tho law permits Ireedom almost to
tho extent of liceuse; but tno
thousands of organizations which
have sprung up to foster 'causes' in
numerable nave created a law out
side of the law which is becoming
morn tyranuical than courts or legi da

Have we freedom of conduct? Do
men and women in America show as

loinestio arrangements, their social
relationships and their moral example
as our kinsmen iu Kuglaud do, where
wo were wont to imagine, the rever
ences for tradition and the fear of
Mrs. Cirundy are serious barriers to
individual independence? Tho ques
tion is at least a fair one.
Thero is certainly an increasing
tendency towards Intolerance in this
country. The spirit of our constitu

he does not transgress the law. Hut
majorities are becoming more and
more tryaiinicitl. They are not
willing to submit to criticism
formerly they were. Moral pressure
is brought to bear on minorities to
reduce them to silence. Associations
of various kinds exert a coercive
force against those who express
opinions or advocate action hostile to
the views held by tho several anno
ciatious. A man in public lite can
hardly afford to take a decided stand
on many Inuiortaut quest ions lest there
rise up a horde ot enemies against
him. As The Inileiieiiilent says, the
mob spirit, culminating in lynching,
is only the extreme manifestation of
This is a tendency which leads
straight to dcsHitlsi. The tyranny
of the mob is anarchy. Anarchy is
intolerable. Out of anarchy emerges
always the Man on Horseback, who
restores order by force and rules the
nation by tho right of power. We are
yet a long way from the condition in
which a desHt would be welcomed
tint it is well to stop evil tendencies
iu their small beginnings.
