He chose rather to keep the land for the actual settlers in spite of the strong influences to the contrary. The exper ience with the South African scrip showed clearly that the land grant resolved itself into a speculation in which the veterans derived the small- est benefit. They got their scrip but tbe great majority disposed of them for from two to four hundred dollars while the speculating purchasers got from seven to- ten hundred. There ought to be some better way of. re- warding1 the veterans without using thsia as the means of spesculative ex- ploitation oi the public lands. When the Minister oi the Interior kept to his policy he did something of which .the .great body of the people especial- ly in the West approved.
