Excerpt from Speech of Hon. Richard Yates, of Illinois: On the Land Policy of the United States, and in Defense of the West Delivered in the House of Representatives, April, 23, 1852 Mr. Chairman, 1 shall not go into the discus Sion at length of the bill under consideration. I have for many years entertained opinions favorable to grants of the public lands in limited quantities to actual settlers. But I humbly conceive that those advocates of this bill, who oppose grants for railroads are much in error; for it is only by open ing roads through the public lands, and making them accessible to market, that they are to be made desirable homes for the actual settler.
