The luccllng' was1 almost unanimous
In fawir of tlio exchange, tho only man

strength being .Senator I.. I McCnnd

thi matter from principal and not h
iW.e he was familiar with the Island
of Lannl. CfONornor Caller opened the
meeting with a few remarks. He said'
"While I believe the policy of the ail
ministration should bo the divldlne of
land Into small holdings and not the
concentration of holdings, Lannl Is in
a different situation. The lease of this
hnd on Lannl, part of which might be
used for sisal, Is limited to five years.
No one has been found who Is willing
lo Inu'st money In Hits project, In
which the plants toko nearly tho five
yenre to produce, tho Art crop.
Something should bo done on thlv
Island where the conditions are pe
culiar both as regards water and char
acter of the lunds which are owned hy
"Land Commissioner Pratt will glvo
you nil Idea of the conditions on I.anui
:ih ho has found them,"
Mr. I'ralt Bald:
"There Is only one sourco of water
on the Island. In Muunalel gulch, mid
this docs not nt present extend below
the government lauds. Another pecul
lar condition Is Hint the government
land Is cut up In various ways by thii
land under prlvato ownership.
"The best of the land owned by thi
government is In u largo cralcr where
shafts wore sunk some years ago at a
large expense In trying to obtain water.
"Tho weather Uureau rcnorts show
that In nine years tlio avcrago rainfall
per year was 32.01. It seems to b
heaviest In December and January. It
ktenis to be smullest In September. Tho
roil is n mindy loam all tho way
iiirougu wnero tliu borings wero made,
mm rcfus.es lo hold the mater, which
simply drains through.
"The Industry has been slock rais
ing, sheep mid cuttle. Sugar cano liuu
been tried tiuauccertsfully mid I believe
a few limes have also been planted.
"This U not 11 new mutter und I huvo
loaked It through carefully and huvo
been thuught by mine to Imu pluced
loo high n value on It. for this reason
I asked J. V. Drown, Capt. Klilwell uuu

tint, f,i.l .... ...... ..,..,.. . .

The lotal figures were as follows: Jar

Kldwcll, 1107.U5U. I therefore ndvlsril
that the lands hu exchauged at the

lands In question.
Mr, Pratt stated that the Oourn
ment was now receiving 1100 per seat
In rental. He stated that the better
lands were crown v.imW and the leases
would not expire for ten years.
Mr. Barker stated that If the peoplr
011 Lanal were paying their taxes lie
did not think the land should be ex
changed. He also crlllcl7cd tho Oover
nor for rcadjng the communication
and attempted lo Interrupt almou every
I'rof. Hosmer snld:
"1 ran corroborate what Mr.lratt
has said and also can statu In regard
to forestry thai without the ex
termination of the goats on thu Island
great damage will lesult and ban been
done by them for some time past.
"I llrmly bclluve that unless these
goals are exterminated the forest on
the top of the Island will ho completely
destroyed. 1 am In favor of the ex
change because under one ownership
I believe something can ho done to save
Mr. Cay, who livos on the Island nil ill
is regarded as the probable owner It
tho exchange Is made, said:
"There ore about 100 natives all told,
on the Island. They have homes on the
bench mid llvo from fishing and I em
ploy them when I need labor. They
buy nil their pol. etc., from Lohalna
Last year I was forced to supply thwn
with wntor as tliu little ttminiH front
which they were accustomed to get
water, bad dried up.
"I believe that grazing Is the omy
practlcnl 111,0 to which the Island may
he put. I have tried to grow vegetables
at my ranch but nave failed 011 account
of the lack of water, having only
enough to supply my slock. Last year
I lost over 10.000 sheep for lack of
.water. This 'year I hato not had ns
many and so have not tost as many.
"Sometime ago I offered $100,000 for
Hie Island. At that time there were
several people who were willing to g
into the matter with me I cannot get
this support now.
"I believe it Is Impossible to do any
thing under a lente as one does not
have any stability mid cannot lay plans
Senator McCandless said:
"I nm opposed to the exchange on
principle. I do not believe that any
one man should own 4U.000 acres of
land. I think that If one man could
mnl.o u success of the Island, In
dividuals, who had the laud In lots 01'
HOD or K0 acres, could maku still more
or ik success.
"1 believe that the Legislature should
appropriate money, to make this laud
popillous and that tV Island should
not bo depopulated at 1 think It would
be If owned by one' man."
W. O. Smith said:
"I have frequently had occasion to go
to Lanal nnd while I am very much In
favor of humesteadlnjr. It seems1 lo me

"The Island has become more and
more barren. I thlnk'it would be bet'
ter to use Hid land for crating and ,
do not believe that this could be done
oil a smnll scale. Even 011 a largo
tcale 1 do not believe. Hint thu Isianii
can he inudo productive.
"It has ;iroved Impossible to develop
a water supply and I do not believe
there would bo nny use In tho legisla
ture appropriating money for this pur
pose. I believe thut If Mr. McCmidlesi
would look orer the land ho would sea
that tlieru uns no chance of using it
"I should say that $7S,000 would be
a high price for the land and am sur
prised at thu estimate made, by Mr
I'beu Ijow said:
"1 belle 0 that In case of an exclmngt
there should bo some provision made
that Improvement should be carrleu
out. 1 believe that we should hold on
It) tho laud till the leases havo all ex
pired us something might turn up
which might bo advantageous.
"I think that tho lands as llicy come
duo should he released till that lime
at auction with a low upset prlco and
the conditions that some Improvements
should be made."
Judge H. U. Cooper:
"I went to J-innl week before lust
nnd examined the property. Mr. Cny,
whom 1 represent, has spent some $70,-
C00 on the Island mid does not feel
that ho 'can go ahead unless ho haa

"1 bc!lee that the land on 1-anui
should be saved und that the best way
that this can be done Is by Its being In
the hunds of ono man. On account 01

"That was 23 years ago and the con
