This assess- ment becomes a lien upon the lands cleared and is payable as an annual tax covering a period of 10 years, but the county commissioners may direct that It is not to exceed three years, "After the work is finished, no installments need be paid, but only interest, thus making a toial of 11 years within which to pay for tho improvement. The contractor dur- ing the course of bis work, will be paid by warrants upon the special Improvement fund. When tiie work Is finished these warrants will be iaken np and he will receive bonds therefor. These bonds are essential- ly mortgage bonds. The cost of cle'aring A'a land Is assessed fo A without regard to the land of any other petitioner. "The second bill declares a state policy with regard to withdrawing from such state lands as arc ou- ly suitable for reforestration, wheth- er such ands are being cut over or timbered. "The third bill declares a state policy by providing that the state shall enter upon the plan of acrinir- ing, eilher by purchase or by con- demnation, privately owned logged- ofi lands suitable only for reforoslra- tion."
