a Thursday by Senator Dietrich with

It is doubted if any Mil has had any
such a rapid course through congress
as the so-called Kinkaid bill.
Senator Dietrich, .In calling up the
bill, made a brief 'statement showing
that some 9,w0,oot acres of land In the
territory outlined in the bill was sub
ject to the provisions of the measure;
that under existing law it was wholly
impracticable to enter this land under
the present homestead laws for tho
reason that 100 acres were inadequate
to support a family, but that :f (itu
ncres were permitted to be entered it
might bo possible to support a family
on this number of acres through cat
tle raising and dairying.
senator Dietrich explained the bill
wa3 only applicable to Nebraska and
applied to the great semi-arid region
of his slate. The senator's explana
tion of the bill was clear, short and
directly to the point, lie was nsked
whether it changed existing homo
stead laws and stated that it did not

bill. . .
Judge Kinkaid, w hen seen later, stat
ed the amendments made In the sen

and that he would move to concur In
them when the bill came to tho house.
Senator Dietrich, in view .of the ac

are fully aware that any offer or even

both Japan and Russia, and it is de
