Bill to Repeal the
Timber Land Act.
A lull In repetd l lie timber aiul Mom1,
dewrt luiul, cninmntatitui land act wit
introduced in Cmigres on lec. 3d.
Author allege whilenale (rand under
cover of those laws itnd lux mitn tgetnent
of the land otlice. The bill is approv
ed by the Senate committee, but oppos
ed by the House coin m it tee, which nays
its palace would out off the irrigation
fund. The bill provide that any entries
initiated under I hew law prior to the
pas-ane of the act shall p ics to patent if
found to comply w ith existing Ian .
The House public land committee
is unalterably opposed to this bill. A
canvas'!' of its member how that muM
of them are hostile to the proHsed legis
lation. On the other hand, the Senate
commiltee will prohahlv make a favor
able report in a fhert time. The hoetil
ity of the House committee will probab
ly defeat action at this section.
A treat many people and new ."paper."
have been making a great howl about
the taking up of laige area of land in
Orecm and other ue-tcrn states by
t-peeula'.ors ai.d corpnratioi:ii. Admit
ting it to le a (act that huge area are
being taken up why isn't it a benefit in
stead of a detriment to the country?
Now , isn't it a fact that the ones who
talk the mot are the ones ho sit idly
by and watch the land go and never
take advantage of their own right to ac
quire what is justly theirs from the fact
that they have been living near the laud
lo, these many year.
Why is it a detriment to I-uke county
to have all this land taken up? It is
nut a detriment, but a blessing instead.
ViirfieTufft Vfii'.Mwtfhty" fuHV W
saw mills will be built that will give
employment ti hundreds of people,
w hich in turn makes business, for mer
chants, blacksmiths, farmers, stockmen,
fruit raiser-i, and every industry will be
augmented probably a hundred fold. I
Another argument in favor of having
this land taken up is the advanced val
uation of the taxable probi ty in the !
county, Every foot of this land should ;
be taxed fi.oU per acre. Today there is !
asses-able projierty in I.ake county that
should go on the tax list that should ;
augment the courity'o finances at least i
fflW.lXiO. This can he done bv order of
the County Court, am1 it will cost 10
cents on the dollar to procure it from ,
the Land office.
We fail to see w here this alleged fraud
is a detriment to the country and should
cause such a great howl. Surely the
poor jieople who can't raise f 4 )0 to
prove up on can not take up the land.
Someone that has sufficient money to
take it up must do so, or let it lay idle
for the forest fire to destroy and thus
will be. of no use to anyone.
Irrigation In Lake County,
loo. II. ntul .In men M. Siimll of
Silver l.nk made- application for

In Thompson valley South of Silver
Inko. The-application wen' tllcil In

nmV were approved by the Secretary
of the Interior Nov. 1Mb. The work
of cotiNt tic t Ion has already begun ami
they will probably hi' completed by
next fall. T he sites cover an area of
ltia and 140 acre rcsnctlvcly. and
will irrigate 1 .") acres of land.
Nearly thirty other applications! for
reservoir sites and rights of way for
ditches were tiled In the land olllce
previous) to these In this district,
but have lint as yet Im-cii approved.
