Last winter the Legislature passed a law reducing tlie minimum price lor state school lands from $3 00 to $1.25 an acre. Keren tly Auditor of State George E. Cole lias bi'en receiving numerous complaints tiiat cattlemen and others holding school lauds under lease are giving up their leases and are purchasing th : laud at the mini mum price of $1.25 an acre, when in reality it is worth double or oven treble that amount. Other persons are prevented it is said, from purchas ing the land at its actual value bv the lessees claiming a prior riht to the land by reason of settlement dur ing the period of their leases. It is easy, it is claimed, for the interested parties to have the land appraised at the minimum amount. Ait that is necessary it is asserted, is to secure the right kind of an appraising board and it will do the rest. Auditor Cole referred the matter to Attorney General Godard to see if tnere was not some wav of stopping the practice. Aassistant Attorney General Clayton handed down an opinion to the effect that a lessee of st .te school lands could not voluntari ly mive up his lease, and that the county commissioners were not au thorized to permit him to do so oefore the expiration of the live years as pro vided by law. It is their dutv, lie claims, to see that the rent is paid each year and to enforce its collection if necessary should the lessee attempt to violate the terms of the contract under which he secured control of the land. In addition, Mr. Clayton holds that neither the lessee or any other person can acquire any prior rights of pur chase to the lands during the time they are under lease, nor will the time a person lives on the land, while he controls it under lease, be applied on the six months actual residence re quired of a settler. - This decision, it is thought, will have the effect of stopping, for a ti me at least, the sale of any more leased school land, and at the next session of tlie Legislature the law can be so amended that definite provisions will be made against such transactions. Land is increasing in value so rapidly in Western Kansas that in most local ities $1.25 an acre is regarded as an absuidly low priced-Capital. - Behold bow great a fire a match kiudletu!
