limber and Stone Act.
Tile repeal of the timber and stone act
will be, according to Senator Gibson
of Montana, one of the most important
measures affecting the West, that will
come before the next session of Congress.
The bill for this rejieal has been reported
favorable by the committee on Public
Lands of the Senate, but has not been
acted on. The contest on it promises to
be one of the fights of the session. It is
not a party measure ami it seems that
the representatives of the Western States
are not a unit in favor of it. The min
ing interests so far as heard from, are in
favor of repeal because they know that
in many cases much undeveloped miner
al land has already laen grabbed under
the pretense that it is valuable “chiefly
for its stone and timber," and those who
favor the settlement of the States of the
far West with a bona fide population
such as the homestead law encourages,
ought to be a unit in favor of repeal.
The party who takes up public land for
its timber or stone is rarely an actual
settler, but is often a dummy or adven
turer in the hands of speculators who
