(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON. Feb. iH. (Special Tele
gram.) The committee on public lands of
the house today gave consideration to the
four land leasing hills now before thst
committee. In behalf of er general land
leasing bill without regard to any psrtlcu
lar measure. William F. Gurley and W. II.
Reynolds addressed the committee. V. II.
Cornell of. Valentine also addressed the
committee In behalf of -his bill Introduced
by Judge Klnkaid on request, but the 'time
occupied by Gurley and ReynoMa In the
general presentation of the needs of a land
leasing bill for Nebraska occupied so much
of the committee's time that a special meet
ing of the committee waa arranged for Fri
day morning, when - Mr. - Cornell will be
heard In behalf of his measure. ,
Messrs. Gurley and Reynolds, In their ad
dresses to the- committee, stated they Wefe
present in the interest of the smaller cat
tle men, who demand relief In the: passage
of some leasing bllf. ' They' suggested that
if the Lacey bill be adopted as the commit
tee bill it should be amended to provide that
In addition to allowing: homesteaders to
lease 640 acres of land, or .whatever amount
Is given him In addition to a- homestead,
that the lessee bf echdol lands should lie al
lowed the siuiie. privilege.,
A further suggestion -Was made that trie
Lacey bill be modified sq as to allow larger
tracts of land to be leased by the home
steader than is provided In the bill of the
chairman of the committee, namely,' 3,2u0
acres. Mr. Ourly' bore down particularly
on this feature of the La Cry bill, believing
larger tracts should lie permitted to be
taken up than contemplated In that meas
ure. May He Hill for Nebraska.
From talks, had with tho delegation which
Is here representing the Stock Growers'
association of Nebraska, it Is learned that
there Is a decided sentiment in the public
lands committee for a land leasing measure,
but that the sentiment of the majority of
the committee is In favor of a bill lu the
Interest of Nebraska .alone and It is quite
possible that some sftch measure may be
reported out of the committee.
In addition- to the Nebraska delegation
