The author has circularized a number of western people who have knowledge of or an interest in the unappropriated public domain lands and he here reports their views concerning the transfer of such lands to the states.

Whatever is done with these lands they should be given management designed to maintain their value permanently. The transfer, if effected, should be conditioned upon such handling by the new managers
