Excerpt from Report of the Surveyor-General of the State of California: From August 1, 1880, to August 1, 1882
Section 3533 should be amended so as to include the unsold portion of the grants to the State for seminary and public building purposes, as well as of the one hundred and fifty thousand acres, because the present laws do not give the Regents of the University control over the unsold portions of these grants, except in such cases as come within the purview of the last clause of Section 3536, Political Code; and the surveyor-general has no authority given him by Section 3398 to make selections in satisfaction of these grants.
In my opinion, Section 3571 should be amended so as to include repayment when entries have been set aside by the Courts for defects or informality in the a plications, and for school land warrants which cannot be locate or satisfied after the grant under which they were issued has been exhausted - the fault being with the State officers, by exceeding their authority in locating more land than the State was entitled to after the State sold these warrants.
