provision of his measure which passed the
house this week, was subjected to consid
erable questioning on the part of member
of the committee, particularly In relation
to the lands which the secretary of the in
terior may exclude from entry because of
their Impracticability to Irrigation, and also
regarding the right of entrymen mho own
and occupy lands heretofore entered by
them to enter upon other lands contiguous
to their homestead entries.
To all of these Judge Klnkald made defi
nite and seemingly convincing answers. A
sub-committee wa appointed, consisting
of Senator Fulton, Dietrich and Newlands,
to report on the measure. It was ordered
that In the event this sub-committee could
agree upon amendments to the bill that
they could poll the committee on the floor
and report the hill to the senate without
further committee action. Senator Diet
rich, who la greatly interested In the
measure, believes that the sub-committee
can so amend the bill as to meet the objec
tions brought out today and at the same
time not materially change the purport of
the bill. Senator Dietrich has strong hopes
of passing the bill at this s ssion.
