Big Revenue From State Lands. □elena Independent. Register of the State land office F. H. Ray will turn into the state treas ury this morning the largeBt sum of money that has ever been given that official from the state land office in a lump sum since it has been in exis tence. The total sum is $345,533.10 and represents the money received for the sale of lands belonging to the Btate during the past fortnight. The principal reason for the accumula tion of such a large sum in the state land office is because the sta'e board of examiners has just completed its examination and approval of the land sales previously made. Not quite all of the money to be turned over to the treasurer this morning was received from land sales, but nearly all of it. A small sum represented rents for lands owned by the state. The total amount of money received from land sales by the state for the fiscal year to date is $1,266,533.01. During the past year the state sold $3,700,000 worth of land. These large figures might _ lead one to believe that the state was rapidly depleting its holdings of lauds, but the amount, still owned by it is large that a comparison between the land sold and that still remaining in possession of the state shows that there is an enormous amount still available. In fact, the state is the owner of lands estimated at the value of $50,000,00. A Roundup of Whiskey Runners.
