The prevailing beii,-f is that he will

his O. K. on the bill also. His opin

relayed to Director General Hints for
his position. It is due back at the

rial presented by the railroad unions
But the real fight against it w 11
be in the realm of politics. The Re
publican Publicity Association recog
nized this. Through its president, Jo
nathan Bourn. Jr., it issued a state
ment that the question of gvernment
ownership will be fought out in the
elections next Novemoer.
"That this issue will be place be
fore the country in such a way that
the people will have an opportunity
to express their views is indicated by
the aggressive action taken by the
American Federation of Labor and by
theg roup particularly advocating the
Plumb plan, in preparing for the pcli
tical campaign of 1920," said the stpte
aet. "It is announced these two
groups will oppose the re-election of
every senator and congressman who
voted for the bill. The 1920 election
therefore presents the opportunity for
I a referendum on the question of gov
ernment ownership.
"While it is the right of the rail
road brotherhoods to advocate the
Plumb plan, it is equally the right
and duty of all of the rest of the pee
ple of the country to advocate no less
vigorously what, in their opinion will
be for the best Interests of the coun

PASSIEO AT LAIST
NATIONAL RESOURCES ON GOV
C'NMENT LAND WILL NOW BE
DEVELOPED RAPIDLY.
COAL IS ITS CHIEF FEATURE
Conditions Under Which This Fuel
and Oil May Be Prospected For
and Taken From the Public Do
main.
By JAMES P. HORNADAY.
Washington.-After some years of
parleying congress has hioally agreed
on the conditions under whicl the gov
ernment will permit the mining of
coal, oil, gas, phosphate and sodI;;;
on the public domain. The bill agreed
to is commonly known as the oil leas
ing bill. It is tie expectation of con
gress that under the legislation the
natural resources to which it relates
will be developed rapidly. The at
tempt to fix conditions under which
the government would permit the tak
ing of coal, oil, gas, etc., from lands
owned by it was started away back
in the Roosevelt administration. In
every congress since that time the sub
ject has been up. A pending piece of
legislation relates to the development
of waterpower on the public domain.
It seems likely that this legislation
will also be perfected at this session.
Perhaps most Interest in the legisla
tion that has Just been completed cen
ters in the conditions under which
coal Is to be taken from the public
domain. All the arrangements for
taking coal as well as the other de
posits covered by the legislation will
have to be made with the secretary
of the Interior. The first step toward
the development of the government
owned coal land witl be to subdivide
this land into leasing tracts of 40
acres each or multiples thereof. In no
case will anyone leasing tract contain
more than 2.560 acres. Leases are to
be awarded by competitive bidding.
There are some provisos or exceptions
written into the legislation. For in
stance, where prospecting or explor
atory work Is necessary to determine
the existence or workability of coal
deposits, the secretary of the Interior
may issue a prospecting permit for a
term of two years for not exceeding
2,500 acres; and if within that period
the permlttee shows to the secretary
that the land contains coal in commer
cial quantitles, he is to be entitled to
a lease.
Restrictions on Railroads.
No lease of coal land Is to be ap
proved or issaed until after a notice
of thirty days has been given In a
newspaper of general circulation In
the county in which the lands or de
posits are situated. There Is also a
provision that no railroad shall be per
mitted to hold a lease to mine coal on
the public domain except for its own
use; and no railroad company can re
ceive more than one permit or lease
for each 200 mll's of Its railroad line
within the state in which the coal land
is situated.
The most of the delay In getting
through this legislation was due to
the Inability to agree on the compen
sation which the government should
exact. As finally agreed on the bill
provides that when the government
decides to lease a tract of coal land.
It shall announce Into advance of the
offering of the leases the royalty that
will be charged. This royalty is not
to be less than 5 cents a ton. pamyahle
at the end of each third month sume
ceeding that of the extnraction of the
coal trom the mine and an annual
rental payable at the date of the lease
and annually thereafter on the lands
or coal deposifts covered by the lease at
each rate as may be fixed by the see
retary of the interior prlor to offer
lg the lease. Thisl rental is not to
be less than 25 cents an acre for the
rst year, not less than 50 cents an
aere for the secnd, third, fourth and
Iftb years, and not less than $1 a
acre for each year thereafter during
the contineance of the lease.
Cal Leaes indetermstsint
Leaes are to be for indeterminate
perlods a condition of diligent devel
opment and contained operatlon of the
mtae, except when operatloo rshall be
nlaterrupted by strikes. At the end o
each -year paered the seretary of
the lnterior may requIre a readjust
meant of terms and conditions.
As to the oil ad ugas, the legalatio
provide that tme secretary of the in
terior may great to any quawliied a
plicat the exelsive right fo a p
rind not exceeding two years to pro
pect for oll and gas upon not to exceed
2.060 aere of government Iad. On
eatabllshbing to the satlsction of the
nlaterr departamnwat that be has locat
ed valuable depslts of oil or gasp the
permittee is to be entitled to a lease
for ome forth o the slad embraced
In his proepeetlng permlt. The lease
Is to be far a term of 20 years upon

of the prodctlo and tme anMual pay

they agree for that year.

the caucus a letter asking it not to

War Department Will Suffer.
The upshot of Itof it all Is that the load
ers have decided not to try to get
through universal training legislation
at this session. They believe the mtain
features of the Wadsworth bill will
eventually be accepted by the coun
try and by congress, but they realize.
so they say, that nothing, perhaps.
could be gained by putting that bill
through the senate at this session and
sending t to the house the house to be slaugh
tered.
The uprising In congress against
military legislation leaves the war de
partment in a most unsatisfactory
condition. It had counted on legis
lation by the end of the fiscal year
providitng for the peace military es
tablishment. Now it will have to go
along in a makeshift way until con
gress acts. Meantime nearly all the
new branches of the service that were
built up during the war, like aviation.
motor corps, gas and flame. etc.. are
rapidly deteriorating for lack of
funds. Between now and the end of
the fiscal year, June 30 the regular
army appropriation bill will be
passed and It the thought of the
men In congress who are dealing with
the situation to make provision in
that bill for tiding the department
