Gifford Pinchot highlighted two articles in the September 19,
1903, edition of the Salt Lake Herald. The first, "Modify
the Land Laws Is Congress' Decision," describes the debates and
resolutions of the National Irrigation Congress held in Ogden,
Utah. The fiercest debate was over a proposed resolution that
favored the repeal of the timber and stone act, the desert land
act, and the commutation clause of the homestead law. Instead, the
Congress resolved to press for "modifications in raid laws as will
save the remaining public lands for actual settlers who will found
homes and live upon said lands." The second article, "Resolutions
That Were Acted On By Congress," summarizes the various issues that
were discussed in the National Irrigation Congress.
