Anil now a word about Lund Cow
luUsioncr Wolfe urnl his land inanipu
lutious. lie wits the poptillstcuudidutu
for state treasurer In 180. In th t
campaign hoiuiule n vigorous molest,
agaiust tho free paw system. He said
a pas win a bribe, and that no state
ulliuinl coul I rJilo upon free transpor
tation and al the same time do justice
between the people and the corpora
tions. Ilo was a candidate for a .state
oflloo again in 181C2, mid he again can
vassod the stato with tho same old
anti-pass doctrine which Ue had talked
two yearn before. In lyail he was
again a candidate for a state Iliac,
making tho samu anti-pass .speeches,
ami was elected. The lir.it otriaiiil act
of Laud Commissioner Wolfe was to
load himself with all t hu uauual
passes lie could proiMire for himself,
and from the ilay that his olllcial ad
ministration began up to tin present
Lime liu has been a nu'iliiim through
which free passes have been oxtor'cil
from the railroads ami ilUlrlbutcd to
the pnpulikts without limit. Mr
Wolfe is a farmer, ami as a candidate
on tho ticket of the farmers' party ho
made special promises as to what lie
would do if he ever became a member
of the state board of transportation.
He would reduce the rates. That was
right in his line In his spcucltc he
used to read otl long statements of
tabulated figures proving the injustice
of the prevailing rates, acd he would
regulate all these things. Now it
transpires that farmer Wolfe was no
mnro sincere In ids pledges to the far
mer voters of the fanners' party than
were the other politicians. Since ho
has been iu olllce lie has betrayed his
party upon every vital point. Hut the
Jniid commissioner, with that adroit
tiess peculiar to professional reformcts,
while, betraying his party upon the re
forms which he promised, in order to
cover up his betrayals and keep his
name favorably boforo tho people, mo-
cured a law to bo passed by the last
legislature which gave him power to
cancel the contracts botween the state
and its thousands of touacts, which
had leased the school lauds with a view
to improvement and subsequent pur
chase, which was their right under tho
old law. Tho publi: is familiar with
the grandstand play which Commis
sioner Wolfo has male to this state in
tho last few months iu handling these
public lands. Wolfe, though a farmer
by profession, is a shrowd advertiser.
When he had procured this law, and

1 ow that Mr, Wolfe has had his inniag
niiil his advertising through the pte.11
l Is only fair to eniiiiio just what has
been its cfltel upon the public pocket
mid upon the farming oomtuiinity
which is interested In the school lauds.
To understand the situation as it was
when Land Commissioner Wolfe com
menced his reform at the beginning of
tho year, we should lonj- in mind tiiat
from 1800 to tho present year, tin oc
cupants of school lands as tenants un
der the state were no more able, by
reason of d ninths and hard times, to
pay their nnittnl rentals to tho state,
than wore other tenants farmers afclo
to pay their rentals. During these
years of shrt crops and low prices
these tenants were unable to pay, anil
It was the duly of the stato to nurse
them along am) to keup thwn on the
lands until suck tiine as they would c
able to pay. This was, the policy nder
republican adiHliilstratlou, lor r publi
cans understood that it would hu dis
astrous to crowd these tenants when
they had no money and there could hu
nothing rali'ctf by removing lliein
fioiu Ilia lands and iliiving them from
the state. The land could not have
been icluascil. There was no demand
for laud Now, there acaumtilatcd
during tiie years an indebtedness to
the state uyaiiut these leasees of MOO,
(100. How Is collect this indebtedness
vu the problem which .should have
been in the mind of CommWsioucr
Wolfe when lie entered upon Ills olllce.
However, under this new law, he can
cels aad throws away this -SlCO.OOfl
without any attempt to collect it. This
tWO.UUO ib a total loss. With a llourish
of trumpets' ami much newspaper ad
vertising the land commissioner has
succeeded in collecting .",,;J00 as pay
ments on new lcas?s, with i.'iiOO as
bonuses. Ht ha thrown awaySlfiO,
000, a largo pat I of which could have
been collected, and iu lieu theieof has
collccUfl O.OU oh new leases. Ho
cancel the Iasoi on 7(J(5,?8!) uci'mv,
throws away f'-TOO.OOO due the school
fund nf thn state, collects ia lieu of
this f 10,400, and call this business. Had
ne ma a in forty paid up iiis haul; rent
011 Uils ichool land, tko amount would
haye wqualed all ,hc bomis money.
Had U0 ncr cent of the old lcac holdut'tf
retained their fauns and paid regular
rent iu the future the amount woald
over balance that which will bu re
ceived on the leases. This reform laud
eommiiiiiiriu r smciih to have been
about as austly an experiment as tho
reform nvru(-r's approval of Hartley'
worthies Wend. Hut from an exami
nation of ran tecuriU at tho statu house
it scgits that tho majority of tie new
lease were secured by the old lease
holders. Tho sciiool-laud tenaut far
mers laam to have beep about as etui
nine iu a laid deal as the reform land
commisiioner is in his reform politics.

laud to tlit saM paity? Or dogs ke
not rather bold the touanl to the aid
Hhtract and then as fast as aosiblo
collect the old rent tnouoy? Huar iu
taiud, the land commissioner has rep
resented lluaugk his advoitisiHg in the
press that hu has saved money to the
statu. The laud commissioner Is thu
buslaew agent of tJie state. It is his
business to collect tho money duo the
ftate, not ta caauel the debt. It was by
