(The manner in which Cornell University has procured a large en-

dowment--and how it owes its establishiment to the wise handling
of the 990,000 acres of lands granted by the act of 1863--is told in a
former part of this inquiry. The lands sold by the State yielded
about 50 cents an acre; those sold by Mr. Cornell and Mr. Sage
yielded about $6.73 an acre. Comparatively few acres had been
sold when Mr. Cornell got hold of the fund by a contract with the

State whereby he gave 60 cents an acre for the remainder.)

OHIO.
Ohio University:

Lands (Federal) given on admission.
(These lands were leased for 30 years on a capitalization of 6 per

cent of their value in 1802. They were to be revalued overy 30
years, but in 1805 a law was passed allowing a lease of 99 years.
When the supreme court sustained the trustees in their effort to
value the land in 1835 the legislaturo passed an act explaining the
meaning of the act of 1805. This practically gives the 14,000 acres
to the holders forever, subject to a rent of 6 per cent on their
value of 1805; i.e., $70,000, yielding an income of $1,200. For 82 years
those lands paid no taxes to State, but in 1875 the university took
advantage of the clause of the act of 1805 allowing it (the uni-
versity) to add the value of the tax the State relinquished for the
benefit of the university to the 6 per cent lease. This was un-
availingly resisted by the lessees, and the university now receives

about $7,500 annually from the 14,000 acres.)
Miami University:
Lands (Federal). (The township set-off in the John Symmes purchase).
(The same difficulties are here met with in regard to the act of

leasing the lands forever on a valuation of an acre, as explained
under the Ohio University. The value of lands in 1801 was 393,000,
which, at 6 per cent, yields $5,550 annual. The university closed
its doors in 1873, but in 1885 the legislature gave $20,000 to repair
buildings, and has since given other sums. The land is situated

in Butler County a few miles abore Cincinnati.)
