No 'Change in Land Law3. .
The House committee on public
lands has voted to postpone 'indefin
itely action ou the bill to repeal the
timber and stone act. This action
means tlRce will be no land law re
form this seuBou.
The House committee turned, the
hill down by a vote of 10 to 4. lu
turning down this bill thecomiittee
stated that the repeal of the timber
and n'tone act would fchut "off the i
oiu'rouftlu; n'ater portion tl.i
m'lanimion ntii'i, aiul won in wronw-
ly luiiidifiip Irrigation work begnu
by the Gove'riimeut. Furthermore, i
it was said that tho repeal of this
law would be of lmineasiireable ben
efit to railroad companies and other
large holders of forest reserve lauds,
as it would cause a considerable rise
la the value of script, which would
be the only remaining way of getting
large tracts of Government timber
land. There was, moreover, a gen
eral belief that the tlmlier and stone
act, if projierly administered, Is not
a bad law.
