PRO

Progressive

Mr. LEWIS:

Is it not a fact that only the very best portions of these lands are being resold? A great number of farms in my own district owe the Soldier Settlement Board between $5,000 and $7,000 a quarter, and they could not be sold to-day at $2,500. For that reason these lands are not being sold; they are being held, rented rather than put upon a forced market at reduced prices.
