That Tantalus ,
The matter of an exchange of land between the government
and V. R. Castle made recently (the latter obtaining nearly
three acres of the most valuable property on the Tantalus
ridge) was brought up at the meeting of the Board of Agricul
ture this forenoon and very thoroughly discussed. Besides
Commissioner Haughs there wore present T. J. King, Wray
Taylor and Allan Herbert, the last named" acting asjchalrm.ui
in the absence of Minister King.
The subject was discussed in all its aspects with the result
that the following resolution was framed anJ adopted:
'Whereas, it has been reported to the Board of Agriculture
by its commissioners that a certain valuable piece of land con
sisting of three acres, more or less, on ths Tantalus ridge,
which had been set apart by the Board tor a public recreation
grounds and planted with valuable fruit trees, and
"Whereas, It has also been reported by said commissioner that
the ground around the fruit trees has been torn iip, exposing
the tender roots to the weather, and
" Whereas, tires have been burned on said land to the danger
of the surrounding forests and it is n.'c;siry for soma nJj of
protection to be instituted at once, .
"Resolved that a committee be appointed to confer with the
Minister of the Interior and the Attorney General as to its
rights in the premises."
This resolution will be presented to the Minister of the Inte
rior and the committee will call on the officials named. After
this, they will act.
The feeling of the members in the matter was very plainly,
brought out at the meeting and the sum total of it is that they
will leave no stone unturned
granted to w. k. uastie into trie lantaius section over which
the Board, by law, is authorised to exercise control.
The members feel that they have not been treated fairly in
the matter and, for that reason, will first inquire of the autho
rities as to their rights in the premises.
The land in question was set apart by the Board as a public
recreation ground and forest trees were purposely excluJcJ in
order that fruit trees and shrubs might take their place and
assure the people of, a fine view of the surrounding country.
"What is to prevent the government from granting people
land of the same kind in the future" asked'one member and a
small voice answered: "McKinley's recent proclamation."
One point brought out very strongly was the recent building
of fires on the land in question. The flames might have spread
to the forests and then there would have been a wholesale de
vastation. One member of the Board said that body would take posses
sion of the land in question. He understood that the matter of
the transfer had beep hanging fire for two or three months and
that Minister King "had tried his best to defer the matter still
further, realizing the value of the land and the purposes for
which it should be used, but one morning a note came down
from President Dole. The land matter had been settled and
Captain King was ordered to sign the necessary papers.
It goes without) saying that the members of the Board are on
the war path for more than one reason.
