A dispatch from Washington says that Representative Mondell of Wyo ming has had a conference with Presi dent Roosevelt and Forester Pinchot in reference to the wholesale with drawal from entry and settlement of lands In the western states supposed to be valuable for coal mining pur poses. The total area ef lands so with drawn amounts to 64,000,000 acres. When the question was taken up by Monde]] with the president, the latter was surprised to learn that the order of withdrawal included all forms of land entry—homestead, timber and stone and desert entry—and not coal entry alone, as he had supposed. The president suggested that Mon dell confer with Forester Pinchot, who Is a member of the public land com mission charged with reporting upon public land conditions and recom mending legislation for the correction of undesirable land laws. Pinchot Is In accord with Mr. Mondell in the opinion that the order of withdrawal Is too sweeping and will recommend to the president some modification. This will probably result in the restor ation of lands to the entry under all forms of selection, excepting under coal land entry.
