IN THE GOVERNOR'S FAVOR
I Three distinct points in 'Gov. Frear'fi A vor
. were brought out during this inorningV hearing
before Secretary Fisher, r ft" ;
1. It w'jw testified Uv Land Agenf W. Q. Af-
: kca that homesteads opened on Mauijaad chich;
afterward proved unsuccessful, wrc'.openetl
f; jfipainst the judgment of Mr.:Aiken, atd that,4his
opening was prior to Governor Frears adminis-
2. It was testif ieV by Richard Iters that to
tlie best of his knowledgeo homesteaus opened
during Gov.- Frear's adniinistration; have been
&ol& or leased by.;'thbljomtra4ers; iri;Votliei;
words, tfiat in this respect the homesfeading "has
b ri bona fide and "the homesteaders able to
' work their lands. v,-..-' r j'-;' '
r 3. ' When tlie question was raised as to the
- lstory of the present discretionary : powers giv
en tlie governor on homesteading Application
and operation,. it was sliown that Gov; Frear sul)
nitted t he problem to the House coramiitee on
rrritbrics' at Va&hington, and tluit tlip land
;t,s in this respect were decided upon Jby the
House committee, with the approval of tlje dele
pite a that time. v
The bearing of these three points is this : They
arc in direct contradiction to the delratfe's com
plaint that the governor is to be blamed for the
, workings and non-workings of tr resent Jand
laws and for the effectA-and lacjr of effect-rQf
the present land laws.
