 388 Petition oe Settlers in Nicola Valley. 1884
PETITION.
To the Honourable the Legislature of British Columbia, in Parliament assembled.
We, the undersigned Farmers, Stockraisers, &c, of Nicola Valley of Kamloops District,
respectfully call your attention to the fact that certain parties have applied to the Commissioner of Lands and Works for permission to purchase large tracts of land, which purchase, if
permitted, would lock up such lands and would be, in our. opinion, detrimental to the best
interests of the country ; and would very respectfully request that a rule or regulation be made
that the public lands shall be sold in quantities of not more than—say—six hundred and forty
(640) acres at one time, which would be ample quantity enough for any bona fide settler, and
thus keep out speculators.
And, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
(Signed)        P. J. Fraser,
J. Cote,
Robert Scott,
and 43 others.
