KNATOIt CIIAM13I0RLAIN has introduced in tlics sen
ate a hill Tor the disposal of Hie lands in the O. & C.
lsiiicl grant t lint i.s hy far tho most equilahle and best
solution of (he problem ,ye( offered the most satisfactory
for (he people of (he region affected.
The hill eliminates speculation, recognizes (he right of
(he stale, the land grant counties and the national treas
ury to share in the proceeds from sales of timber. Jt opens
the mineral and agricultural lands for entry and provides
for the sale of the timher.
Following the decision of the federal courts, (he hill
recognizes the interest of the Southern Pacific in the lands
at $2.50 an acre and no more. An in the granting act of
18(J(), congress was authorized to amend, alter or repeal
the act making the grant, the hill utilizes this authority to
The bill provides that title to the laud shall he vested
again in the United States. The land is divided into three
classes: First, mineral, comprising all tracts "chiefly val
uable for minerals"; second, timber lands, those that are
non-mineral having a growth of timber amounting to a
million feet to a quarter section a quarter section being
defined as any four contiguous forty-acre tracts or any
number of smaller legal subdivisions together containing
160 acres, to enable all heavily timbered land to be classi
fied as "timber land"; (bird, agricultural land, compris
ing all not classified as mineral or timber.
iMineral lands are to be open to exploration and entry
upon passage of (he act. Timber lands are not to be dis
posed of until the timber is removed, at, which time they
will automatically become agricultural land. Agricul
tural lands are made subject to entry at local land offices
.under the homestead laws, no patent issuing until land
litis been resided upon and cultivated for five years and
until (he settler has paid 2.00 an acre, f0 cents at appli
cation and $2 at proof, no entry (o exceed 1(i() acres. Ap
plication for entry cannot be made until ninety days after
'passage of (he bill, but during this ninety-day period
actual settlers on the land December 1, li)lf), shall have
a preferred right to enter the lands upon which they have
been residing, unless it is classifiable as timber land.
The timber upon the land may be sold for cash, under
sealed bids, upon notice given by the commissioner of (he
general land office, as soon after the passage of the act as
possible, sales to be made according to the smallest legal
subdivision. Purchasers .receive patents Hiei'efor, in
which title to tho land is expressly reserved. The timber
can be cut and removed at any (hue within discretion of
(he purchaser, who controls the land meanwhile.
All money received from sale.", of either land or limber
go into (he United States treasury in a special fund desig
nated "The Oregon and California Land (Irant Fund," to
be disposed of as follews: For each acre within the grant,
(he railroad is to be paid ,$2.00 an acre. Forlv per cent of
the balance is to be paid the statu of Oregon for the estab
lishment and support of public schools; -10 per cent shall be
paid to the respective counties in which (he land is situ
ated for the construe! ion of roads, highways, bridges and
such olhcr public purposes as (he county authorities may
dire.ct; and (he remaining 20 per centum goes to the na
The bill provides a method whereby agricultural land
may reach the hands of the actual settler, but it docs not
immediately place the land on the tax roll as a speculative
plan would. It means far more for the development of (he
country, however, and that, rather than locking up our
resources for speculative profit, is what Oregon vitally
needs. Vc have too much sjicculaJJve Jiolding as it is.
