Commission's Renort Within Month
Will t Recommend Expenditure
of Million to Build 2000 Homes
for Settlers on Public Lands.
That more prosperous homestead
Ing will bo the result, if tho govern
ment builds housed on Its public land
open for homestead Is the opinion of
the committee which has been Inves
tigating the whole question and which
will make its full report to Oovernor
Krenr within tho noxt month.
Tho 'commission consists of W A.
Kinney, chairman; Jamos W. Pratt,
former land commissioner, and. Hon
W. W. Harris. This commission was
appointed 'by tho Oovernor under a
Joint resolution of tho last legislature,
tho resolution being:
"That as soon as may be after tho
npprovnl of this resolution, the Oov
ernor nppolnt a commission of three
members, who Bliall bo experienced
and comfietcnt porsons, which commis
sion shall thoroughly Investlgato and
examine Into the matter of fruit grow
ing nnd truck farming throughout the
Torrltory, together with tho feasibility
of giving aid theroto by providing as
sistance In tho matter of refrigeration,
packing and transportation, piark'et
Ing or any llko Bubject. Tho conclu
sions reached by such commission
shall bo embodied by them in n re
port to bo mado by them to the Gov
ernor not later than July 1, "lOlp, to
gether with their 'reco'mmendatlons
as to legislation If such Is needed,
which rcKrt shall bo laid beforo the
noxt legislature by tho Oovernor.
It Is tho opinion of Mr, Kinney that
tho government should build houses
on cncli homestead at a cont of $500,
nnd a million dollars spent in this
manner would be tbo 'beat kind of an
Investment,. and furnish two thou
sand homes for settlers.
Money bo Invested by tho Territory
would bo a Bafo Investment as has
been shown at Mcllryde, nnd the Ter
ritory could Bell tho land, homo and
all on teim payments, as It now sells
the land alone.
Tho Federal Government has found
that homesteaders on Irrigation tracts
default In their payments but sel
government bonds ns an Investment.
