For JFreo Homes Will Koiuo up
This V ook Says Flynn.
Washington February 14. Dologatc
Flynn of Oklahoma bays tbo commit
mlttco on public lands hai dooldod to
call up tbo freo homos bill In the house
this week. Mr. FJynn and other mem
bcrs of tho committee say the bill's
chances are good as members of the
house who have heretofore oppobud
the free homos project have been won
The chief objection to the bill it the
old cry that if it 1b passed the govern-
ment will give away what It mljjht
sell for from 10 to 25 million dollars.
This is on the theory that all tho pub-
lic domain including arid lands will
ultimately bo sold.
There is however other opposition
to tho bill on grounds that the ootn-
mltteo docs not consider. There has
been strenuous opposition by farmers
of the eastern aud middle states to
developing tho arid lands of the far
west at government expense to pro-
duce new fields of competition with an
already greatly depressed agriculture
in the cast.
There has recently appeared another
source of objection to tho bill. This
comes from the friends of agricultural
and mechanical colleges that receive
support from the sales of public lands
under tho Morril law. It is certain
that the governmsnt cannot give
away these lands and at the same
time derive from tho proceeds of their
