Register Smith, of the state land office, has prepared a statement which shows that the Confederate veterans derived but little benefit from Act 55 of 1896, which provided that each soldier might receive a land warrant for 160 acres of land. The statement shows that, in accordance with said act, 1116 land warrants were issued for 160 acres each. Of this number 1028 have been located, leaving only 88 warrants yet outstanding. Of the warrants located, land speculators used 991, while the old soldiers go the benefit of only 37. The land sharks paid a mere pittance for the warrants they purchased, the average price being estimated at $30. Thus it will be seen that the bulk of the state’s intended beneficence to the Confederate veterans went into the pockets of speculators.
