are Inevitable In his message todav
he urged the legislature to vest in
the governor authority to enforce the
laws when the local officers fail to
do so.
Recall cf Elective Officers.
Among other recommendations were
a workmen s compensation act. a tax

Because In times past "selections of!
public land have been unwisely made
by state officials, who took land
that were not worth $10 an acre, as;
they were supposed to be under the
jfi allowance for the government. Gov-',
ernor Carev advised the legislature j
Wg "to memorialize congress to rem.,:
the state to convey back to tne gen-
gfV erai government the land-; th;it are
worthless and which have therefore
been patented to the state, and m lieu
thereof that the state be allowed to
take other lands that are of value of
at least $10 per acre."
Wants Authority to Buy Bonds
The message recommended that
authority bo ghen the Btate treas
urer to go into ibe open market and
i AO buy up the Btate bonds, amounting to
some 3114,ufi(i, which are not yet
available fr'r redemption aud which
bear 6 per ceDt Interest. "It will
probably com more than a quarter
million ' dollars to pay It off In the
manner provided by the bonds." the
message said of the indebtedness in ,
question, 'if the Interest should be
compounded The treasurer should I
be authorized to buy the bonds in the
open market if they can be procured, j
on aT 1-2 per tent basis The state'
baa the money available to take up!
the bonds; It is only necessary that;
anthority be given to make the pur
chase." Referring to the aericultural devel
opment of the state the message said!
that the year 1912 was the mot pros- I
perous in the history of Wyoming
and that the agricultural production
was probably four times that of any I
previous year
The Chicago & Northwestern rail-I
road, the message recitea, has offer
ed to deed to the state land at Doug
las aIued at 115,000 used for the,
state fair grounds, provided the state
will erect thereon in the course of
three or fo r years, buildings and im
provements to the value of $50,000
The governor recommended that this
offer be accepted.
The governor did not discuss the
escapes from the state penitentiary at
Rawlins and the lynching of a pris
oner within the walls, except to call
the attention of the legislators to the j
fact that ome unfortunate things
have happened, but nothing more than

Kern County Oil Lands
Case Will Have Far
Reaching- Result
Eos Angeles, Cal.. Jan. 21. A bill
in equity was filed in the I'nited
States district court today in which
the government seeks to recover from
locators lbu acres of oil land In Kern
county. California, thus making ef
fective the executive withdrawal or
der Issued by President Taft Septem
ber 27, 1909
The bill is directed against the Mid
way Consolidated Oil company and
39 individual defendant-, and while
it specifically involves only tiie acre
age stated, the result of the action Is
said to bear directly upon thousands
of similar locations throughout the
I'nited States.
I'nited States Distiict Attorne M -Comtek
said today that the suit was
to test the executive order as cov
ering the period between Us issuance
and Tunc 21, 1910. when by act of
congress the President was specifical
ly granted the power to make such
withdrawals. The claims in question
were located within that period, and
the government contends the order
was sufficient to exempt the land
from appropriation.
The defendants bold that the pow-
er of withdrawal did nol become ef-
: fecthc until the act of .Tune 2". 1910.
and the government seeks judicial
j ruling on the point

ping That action he declared, had
iK'fii "a source of regret to multitudes
of our fellow cmseuB, auu nas

Fowler Offers Sugges
tions For Currency Re
form to Committee
Washington. Jan 21 Former Rep
resentatlve Charles N. Fowler of New
rersey outlined to the house currency
, reform committee his suggestions for
revision of the monetary system to
day. lie proposed that all national banks
lie authorized to do commercial, sav
ings and trust company bustness ano
make note issues, as Canadian banks
do; that all 'holding companies" of
banks be prohibited and tbat all naiiKs
be compelled to carry the same
amount of reserve, always in old.
All banks should be under federal con
trol, he contended, as banking was
interstate business, and that clearing
houses should be established at all fi
nancial centers to be designated as
commercial zones, under the manage
ment of boards of control elected by
.the banks. A bankers' council to act
as a court of appeals for each one,
composed of business men and bank
ers, he also proposed A deputy I'nit
ed States comptroller would preside
over each board.
Central Reserve Banks
By having all banks in the I'nited
Slates contribute ironi 7 to 10 per
cent of their deposits to a central
reserve, Air. Fowler estimated a cold
reserve of upward of $150,000,000
I would be created, to be held in tr st
for all commercial .ones and its dis
tribution in times of need would be
controlled by a board chosen Irom an
the zones Such a plan. Mr. Fowler
told the committee, would enable such
! an organisation as he outlined to
control the movement of gold to and
i fiom the I'nited States and enforce a
discount rate for cold transactions
