The extraordinary cxpounes In

I appeared before the governor and
the attorney general today. I find
that 6,000 acres of school land will
be affected by 'the Link Itiver dam.
Tho attorney general will make a
thorough Investigation of the ques
tions Involved. He considers It of
great importance on account -of Its
relation to tho public school fund.
This would be a very important
mutter for tho school fund, and under
the present regime It is certain that
nothing will be permitted to happen
that will In any manner Jeopardise
tho abheta of the state's public insti
