Homestead. Bill Doomed.
Hope of an agreement on the three-year home
stead bill, with the precisions therein for which
Colorado is battling, was practically dissipated
last Tuesday in a stormy committee session, the
same conferees went hack nv the arrangements
effected Monday night, and declared they would
stand firmly in favor of Secretary Fisher of the
department of the interior.
The session was marked by many sharp ex
changes, particularly by Representative Taylor of
Colorado and Senator Newlands of Nevada
“If Mr. Fisher is going to bo permitted to de
cide this whole business of what is good for the
homesteader in Colorado and the other western
states, as becomes apparent from the progress of
this conference committee, then we representa
tives of the people of those states might as well
go home,” said Mr. Taylor.
This precipitated an angry debate, in the course
of which Taylor told Newlands bluntly that he
would hear from the people of Nevada if be per
sisted in his attitude.
The split in the conference committee resulted
directly from the situation in eastern Colorado,
where many of the settlers on the so-called en
larged homesteads have suiVertd haidships under
the stringent regulations of the interior depart
ment For the p*»st several months the represen
tatives in congress of w« stern states have been
flooded with letters and telegrams begging them
to bring pressure to bear on the department to re
lieve their condition. Appeals have come fiem
farmers, associations, chui.iber of comim roe and
many other organizations.
Secretary Fisher demands the three-year pro
vision should not apply to the enlarged home
stead ». and that the amount required to be culti
vated should be one-eighth the second year and
one-quarter the third.
After several weeks of dickering a tentative
agreement was reached in which the senate con
ferees yie’ded to Mr. Taylor. It reached the point
where Senator Jones of Washington was to draw
up a statement to be signed at Tuesday's meeting.
In the interval, however, the senate conferees, two
o.' whom represent the nme idment. held a further
conference with Secretaiy Fisher and decided to

disregard the tentative agreement.
"It appeared to be a contest between Secretary
Fiaher and myself,” said Mr. Taylor " and I would
not yield. 1 believe it is absolutely imperative
that the homesteaders of eastern Colorado should
come in under the benefits of this proposed law.
I have been advised from all sources that many of
them prefer to give up what little they have and
leave lire state rather than stay on and suffer
hardships such as they have experienced under
Mr. Fisher's regulation.**
Letter From a Tax-Payer.
Eastern Colorado Times
Cheyenne Wells, Colo.
Gentlemen:—
I want to compliment you on
your newsy little paper. It is too
bad you did not get it started ir.
time to get in on the county
printing graft, for I am satisfied
our generous county commission
ers would have put you on the
list for $850, the same as the
other two papers.
I wish you would please try
and have the commissioners ex
plain through you’- paper why it
is that Cheyenne county should
pay over five times as much for
the county printing as our sister
Kiowa county. Yours truly
A Tax-Payer.
