CALIFORNIA GOVERNMENT LANDS
CALIFORNIA GOVERNMENT LANDS—In California as I understand it, one can get government land only by having his name drawn, in a sort of free lottery held at intervals by the government. Does this rule apply in all states, and in the National Forests, where all agricultural land was formerly open to entry?
I think that you are wrongly informed in this, for if I understand it, only Indian Reservations, when opened to settlement, are allotted in that way. I think that you can get any ordinary government homestead land, suitable for agriculture, etc., by the regular method of filing and occupancy, with the necessary improvements, and it is not only possible to enter the land at once, after filing on it, but such occupancy is really required. This applies to California and all other states where U. S, Government land is still to be had. Our little book Vacant Government Lands would be a good investment for you, for it tells of all the unoccupied homestead land in the U. S., gives addresses of the land offices, and tells just how to get the land. The price of the book is 21 cents.
