RETARDING THE .GROWTH OF
In a recent issue of this paper we
printed some statistical facts relating to
the progress of aggregating land holding
in Tebama County, which were suffi
ciently startling to justify the earnest and
thoughtful consideration of every well
wisher of this country.
Since then we havo received additional
official data on the subject, of far reach
ing significance, which we desire to pre
sent herein. In 1880 the assessment roll
of Tehama County shows but six persons
possessing holdings of 10,000 acres and
upwards. The aggregate holding by
these people was 95,774 acres, valued at
$706,409. For greater perspicuity we
present below a tabulated statement of
the owners, the acreage and the value of
the six largest holders.

Let it be understood that this showing
exhibits six persons holding 10,000 acres
and upwards in Tehama County. The
largest holder owned 31,167 acres and the
smallest of the six 10,002 acres.
In ISBS there were sixteen persons
holding 10,000 acres and upwards, and the
aggregate of their holdings was 305,322
acres, valued at $1,717,203. The smallest
of these holding! was 10,473 acres and the
largest 72,993 acres, an increase in the
largest holding of 41,820 acres. Tho
increase in the aggregate holdings
of those owning in excess of 10,000
acres was 209,548 acres. Thus the
vast area of 269,54S acres had passed
into large holdings, being aggre
gated from holdings of less than 10,000
acres. Again, that there may be no mis

In IMHJ there were sixteen persons with
holdings in excess of 10,000 acres, the
smallest being 10,398, and the largest
79,278 acres. The aggregate of tho hold
ings in 1890 was 188,863 acres, valued at
$2,721,798, being an increase of 128,031
acres; or in other words, the sixteen
largest holders had covered into their
ownerships 128,000 additional acres of
land in five years. Tho difference be
tween tho aggregate for 1880 and 1890,
covering a period often years, was 397.579
acres—nearly 400,000 acres—which had
been taken into holdings of 10,000 acres
and upwards. In ton years Tehama
County land owners had thrown under a
monopolized state 400,000 acres of land,
which would have given to four hundred
families 1,000 acres each, to 800 families
000 acres each, to l.uxi families 250 acres
each, and to B£oß families 125 acres each.
That there shall be no misapprehension,
we present the table for 1890 from the
official records as follows:

The significance of all this is not far to
seek. Large laud holding is depopulat
ing California. Tbc population of To
lnima County not only made no gain
from 1880 to 1890, but made an actual
loss. The young men of that county are
taping driven out to find employment and
homes. The young life generated by the
population of that county is banished for
want of profitable employment, driven
out by the alienee of opportunity to live
at home. Large land holdings are abso
lutely expatriating the population of the
■tato ,-,k well ns exrntrWtotf ttw popslM
tions of the county.Blt is not only driv
ing out the entire incoming population,
but it is driving out the existing popula
tion and particularly its increase. The !
Sacramento Valley, as a whole, is being j
depopulated by large land holdings, as |
will be shown in the progress which the
Record-Union is :making in the way of
collecting official statistics on the sub
ject. The ranting demagogues who are
asking for additional overland trans
portation in order to increase the popula
lation of California will find in the statis
tics herein presented food for reflection.
Some twelve years ago the Record-
Union took this subject in hand, intend
ing to make a complete exposition of the
existing condition relating to the hold
ings of land in this State. It was diverted
from its purpose at that time by other
matters of more pressing importance.
The abuse has grown apace until
to-day there is nothing of greater
significance than the condition of
the land holdings in this State and it
will be necessary to begin an agitation
on this subject which will result in leg
islation that will absolutely prevent the
further aggregation of the real property
of the country. To that agitation the
Record-Union will persistently devote
its best energies. It will require but
ten years more to have all of Tehama
County in the ownership of sixteen men,
perhaps less time, and unless a remedy
can bo found, the rest of the population
may as well take notice that they are ex
pected to move.
It remains to be noted that for pur
poses of taxation, the 95,774 acres held by
the six largest holders in 1880 was valued
at $706,409, or about ?7 50 an acre; while
the 493,353 acres held by the sixteen
largest holders in 1890 was valued at
£721,798, or a little less than $5 50 an acre.
By the same ratio of valuation obtaining
in 1880, the largo holders in IS9O should
have paid taxes on the lands held by
them upon §3,097,000. Thus it will be
seen that the assessable value of property
decreases as the acreage of the holding
special it otic co.
