LEGISLATION OF INTEREST
TO ALASKA HOMESTEADERS
CALIFORNIA REDWOOD TREES
OLDEST THINGS IN THE WORLD
Under a new ruling of the Alaska
Land Office a homesteader in Alaska
may now dispose of a part of his hold
ings by relinquishment before receiv
ing his patent without running the
risk of getting into trouble with the
United States authorities. This will
give the original settler a chance to
profit through the sale and thus de
velop his own ground and provide an
opportunity for a later arrival.
The anonuncement was made
through the Land Department of the
United States Railway. Prior to the
new ruling a homesteader was not
permitted to sell or otherwise dispose
of any of his holding before he ob
tained the patent to the land. To do
so made him liable to charges of fraud
with the possibility ,of losing his
claim. Now he need not have tha'
fear.
Under the new ruling the home
steader, locating 320 acres, is permit
ted to sell . his right to any part of
it so that, as the country is settled, he
may. finally find himself sharing his
The great redwood trees of Cali
fornia are said, in an annual report
of the California Redwood Associa
tion, to be the oldest living things in
the world. Therefore it is surmised
that had Noah taken his cruise in the
Ark in the vicinity of California he
could have moored his craft to one
of the trees, awaiting the waters to
subside, both because of its age and
enormous height.
The fact that the redwood trees is
so ancient has been unearthed by re
cent scientific researches, which as
certain that "General Sherman,'' in
the Sequoia National Park, is approx
imately ten thous and years old. It
might thus have been this tree to
serve as the hitching post for the Ark.
It is stated that these trees con
fine their growth to the present lit
teral of California, but that the older
and larger species mark what was
once the coast line of the Sierra Ne
vada Mountain Range. Those trees
began their growthbefore the ercord
of man began, it is estimated by the
scientists.
