Representative Hermann has been
before the Committee on Public
Lands regarding hia resolution of in
quiry as to the action of the Interior
Department in rejecting various contests
in swamp-land claims in Eastern Oregon .
which bad been previously authorized
by the department, and at Mr. Her
mann's request final approval of selec j
tions baa been suspended until the rieht
of settlers to continue their contests
shall be inquired into by Congress or al
lowed by the department. These lands
are chiefly in the Harney Valley land
district. Mr. Hermann is receiving a
large number ot petitions irom people
settled on the lands, who ask for the
right of a bearing in the land office.
Representative Wilson, who is a mem
ber of the Committee on Postoffices and
Post Roads, made a strong speech againat
the arbitrary cutting down of the appro
priations for postoflice facilities, and by
abundant statistics showed how the serv
ice would surely be cr in Died unless the
government increased the amount appro
priated to a reasonable figure. Wilson
has had an opportunity to see how lac It i
of funds in the Postoffice Department
has prevented the development of the
mail facilities in his State, and his talk j
was in the direction of securing better
facilities and larger distribution of mail
routes throughout the West and so bring
the mail services in this rapidly develop
ing country up uj pomeming nae wuai
is afforded in the East. But all the talk
a man might do in this Congress in that
line would be of no avail, as parsimony
is the watchword of the hour.
Representative Hermann has been en
deavoring to hasten the work of opening
the Hiiets Indian reservation to settle
ment. Officers of the department stated
recently the allotments will be completed
soon, not later than this summer, when
negotiations will at once commence for
the release of the surplus lands to set
tlement. This reservation contains 225,-
000 acres, and there are about 560 Indi
ans to whom allotments are being made,
in addition to which the btate becomes
entitled to about twenty-two Bchool sec
tions. There will remain a surplus of
about 162,4 )0 acres for settlers. Mr.
Hermann stated to the Secretary that
this surplus is capable of sustaining a
large body of people, and that many of
his constituents are anxious for the early
adjustment of allotments and the subse
quent proceedings that people seeking
homes in his State may have this further
opportunity to acquire them. -
