that there is any discrimination I will
be glad to know.' If what you say is

that we received the- usual com

atructive schemes outlined, and in
fact we did not derive a great deal
of fcenefit from them. However, as
a result of these bearings and the
communications which we received,
(he Commission came to the conclu
sion that the subject was more one of
administration than of laws. As a re

the land generally in two sub-divisions:

:s There 4s anotherquesflon' which
haV always' been" a debatable ground.
The main question is, are you going
to test the: bona fides? Yon- want td
tie him : up with, all sortsv of restrlc
tlon8? In ' facti a man whom -yon
would jwant as 'fl settler- might not
care r to take up - the- homestead owing
t6 the., restrictions which you enforce.
Thereby you thwart i yourw object by
making the conditions so hard, that
he is not able to comply, with thenv,
I would say that until a man received
his', title any conditions which : the
government .might see --fit to- make;
which would' test the. bona fides,' were
advisable provided they were not toa
stringent; but; after He got ihls title
I v think. the resCrfctions ought to 5 be
relaxed somewhat.' I inlght say- that
Jafter our report: was filed, the law.
Vaa drafted and a great many changes
were placed In Jt. -. This' idea .of .striv
ing to put a restriction on the . home
steader who desires to" self his land
after ' he1 acquires title either to go
lout -of the Territory or to go into an
other line Of business by not allow
ing' Mhf to sell to a corporation or
to a man who with the land sold him
ofjwill own more than.. 80 acres, acts
both ways. Is that an attractive prop
osition to the homesteader? - There-Is
the p roblem. I admit that you want
to 5 keep the lands out of corporate
hands, but it is a big problem. On
the other hand, those homesteaders
might want to form independent cor
porations. It might be advisable that
after they get their patents they
might want to form little associa
tions wherebv thev could disnosa of
their products to better advantage,
and in this way be able to secure ad -
Fisher: There would be no reason
to put the land in to acquire that,
would there?
Lewis: There might be.
Lewis: So far for that theory. I
think there was one other proposition
and that is this: as far as the unde
veloped lands are concerned, that the
price should be made very low The
man who takes up these lands has a
value to create ;v and if the home
steader creates that value then he is
entitled to that land at a low figure.
Second, when you come to sell devel
oped land such as cane land, you. are
making an . error if those lands are
sold at low figures, because then you
get-two elements: first, those lands
for a number of years have been out
at low rentals and the government is
now in a position ta reap the benefits1
ojf having the lands developed; and,
second, if you place a low appraised
value on the lands then there is the
element of speculation which will
rome in no matter what your restric
tions are. Some of the speculative
class are bound to get in there it
Try and be convinced
It's Better than the Best
The - third proposition is: that '.if
you are; - going to sell : out the ; cane
ands there should be made reserva
Olons ; in these caae - lands ' for rights-of-way
for ditches.' If you leave thai
power In b the goternment i It will

j Iri 'the last prOposltlc comes the
question , of advances to homestead

advances to homesteaders. ? Vith re
strictions on aliehatioh, and iwlth too
rigid 1 restrlctiohs nipca thd us of the

Fisher: What do you think about
it. frankly?
Lewisc Well, if taking off the re
strictions In opening lands to home
steaders would put, tie land Into the
hands of a few people-of corporate
ownership, I don't think the restric
tions should be taken off. Dut I
think 'there should be less stringent
restrictiotis after thei homesteader
gets his patent. --
Fisher f . Well, If those restrictions
were taken off, sooner or later that
would -be the result the majority of
(be. lands would pass into the hands
of Corporations or into-the hands of a
few large interests. In the States
they do not" allow corporations to own
real estate at all. There are certain
restrictions here as to the amount of
land that a corporation shall own. Do
you think, without these restrictions
that it would be very long before the
better lands in this Territory would
be in the hands of corporate owner
