Frequent enquiry concerning the situation
of the School Lands in thi* State at the pres
ent time, has suggested to us the propriety
of devoting whatever space may be neces
sary to a clear statement of it, to that sub
Prior to the Isst session of the legislature
nothing had been done further than to es
tablish a price, viz, seven dollars per acre,
below which none of those lands should be
sold. No provission had been made for the
sale or disposition in any way of them, and
it Was a question of great uncertainty wheth
er any person or persons had a right eveu to
At the last session however, ample pro
vision was made. A general State Land
Officejwss established at the Capitol of the
State, and the State Auditor is ex-officia]
land.commissioner. He has control accord
ing to law, of all the lands owned by, or in
which the State has any interest, including
railroad grant lands,university lands, swamp
lands, land forfeited to the state for taxes
and school lands.
The minimum price of the school lands
's reduced from $7 to $5.
The law provides that whenever, in thelawyers,
opinion of the commissioner the public in
terest shall require it, he shall appoint one
appraiser in the county in which the land to
be appraised Is situated, and shall notify the
county commissioners of such appointment.
The commissioners shall thereupon appoint
two other appraisers, whose duty shall be to
appraise the school lands within the county
The lands thus appraised are to be sold, but
in no case shall they be sold for less than
their appraised value, and that appraisement
must in no case be less than the minimum
price established by law.
An amount of land not less than 50,000
acres nor mere than 200,000 acres miut be
thus nppiaiaed and sold on or before the first
day of next November. The terms of sule
will be as follows if the land is pine um
ber land the whole amount iuust be paia
down: for other timber lands, or lands
mostly valuable on account of }the timber,
seventy five per cent, must be paid down
and for other lands fifteen per cent, must
be paid down, and the remainder at any time
within twenty years, at the option of the
purchaser, with interest annually in advance
at the rate of seven per cent, per annum,
payable on the first day of June, or within
six days thereafter, each year. Severe pen
alties are provided to be infi cled on any one
who shall commit any trespass on lands be
longing to the State.
There is one feature of the bill that ap
pears to us to be peculiarly equitable: and
that is, in the appraisement of the land itself
and the improvements ere to be apprai.«cd
seperately and if at the sale any person
other than the settler thereon becomes the
purchaser, he shall pay to the person who
made the improvements the appraised value
Another generous feature, to which we
call attention is, that in leasing any improve
ed land belonging to the State ihe commis
sioner shall in all cases give the preference
to the settler, and in no case shall charge as
rent more than five per cent, of the ap
praised value of the number of acres improv
The law is very lengthy, containing fifty
five sections, and we may not be able to pub

crowding out more important matter

It is the duly of papers through the coun

their readeis who regard the local news as
a secondary matter. Nine readers out
every ten, when they take up a paper look
first at the local column. If that is full the
paper is interesting though the other col

If that is wanting in interest, no oihor col

they always send the paper. The local pa

If the /oc.i/ news in those papers is iterest

tho paper is located, to the favorable con

items as the yield of crops, natural fruit

The potfcy of the ultra Republicans and
