The ex governor did not elaborate on his idea for the solution of the public lands question, but Mr. Taft himself promised several audiences to do all Uhis power at the next sessioaof congress to have legislation enactld that will dispose of some of the difficulties now confronting settlers on public lands. Such legislation, the president said, would not interfere with the policy of conservation. Tle principal grievances of settlers, the president found, are : the short time in which first payments for land are required; the length of tenure demanded of a settler before he becomes owner of the land, and the fact that even after a tenure of five years, title to the land does not pass. He did not take up each issue iu detail, but declared that there was no reason to doubt that congress would settle them at the next session.
