Tho Irrlcat Ion Cases,
Lincoln, .Nov. 20. The supremo court
has handed down tho most important
decisun in tiny of the irrigation cases
before that body. Tho verdict of the
lower court In the case bf tho board of
of Alfalfa Irrigation district, appellees,
against M. S. Collins et nl, appellants,
was alllrmcd. The decision is by Jus
tice Post A portion of tlio syllabus
'The act approved March 20, 1893,
known as the district irrigation law,
provides that when bondr. aro author
ized by a voto of any Irrigation district
application may bo made to the district
court of tho county in which such dis
trict or part thereof is situated for an
order confirming and approving tlio
bamo. At tho timo set for hearing, and
after notice by publication to all con
cerned, any person interested in said
district may appear and resist such ap
plication, and tho court may examine
into and determine nil questions per
taining to tho organization of tho dis
trict, as well as tho regularity of tho
voting and issuing of such bonds. Held:
Not to contemplate tho taking of prop
erty without duo process of law, by
means of taxation, within the prohibi
tion of the Btato or federal constitu
tion, irrigation districts organized
under our laws arc public rather than
municipal corporations, nnd their oill
ccrs tiro public agents of the state. The
district irrigation law docs not conflict
with tho constitution by authorizing
the taking of property for private use
only. Tho district irrigation law is not
unconstitutional on the ground that
the power thereby conferred upon dis
tricts to levy taxes is without limita
tion." Tills caso has been watched with
great interest bj- all the prominent ex
ploiters of irrigation works In tho state,
secretary Alters of the State Hoard of
Irrigation and Matt Daugherty, In par
ticular, arc greatly elated over tho de
cision. It was feared that recent Cali
fornia decisions, which, in many res
pects, are exactly opposite to this, es
pecially so that of Judge Ross, might
be followed as authority, to the great
detriment of tho irrigation interests of
Nebraska. Fivo states "are now in re
gard to tho fundamental principles
enuncLiten in this opiuion, California,
Washington, Colorado, Nevada and
Matt Daugherty arrived In town to
day in anticipation of the decision. He'
is very much elated, ns he is promi
nently identified with the Alfalfa com
pany. He said: Tills decision is ono
of tho most important ever handed
down by tho supremo court There
arc a gient many people in tho eastern
portion of the state who do not fully
appreciato Its full significance. It
means Immediate work for a largo
number of men nt a timo when there is
nothing else to work at, and when they
need It. Uetween now and the time
when the earth is too solidly frozen for
profitable labor a great deal can be
accomplished. I shall put quite a
number at wot k at once. Others will
do the same in Keith county and other
parts of the northwest.
"There is another thing about arti
ficial irrigation which has not been ob
served by everybody. The moro irri
gation tho more rainfall. If you no
ticed tho fact during tho past'season
thoso portions of Nebraska where Irri
gation is most forwarded received the
greatest percenlago of precipitation.
Tho eastern and southeastern portions
of tho state received less rainfall this
season than tho northwestern portion.
1 havo also noticed a peculiarity in tho
watersheds of Nebraska. Streams and
lakes will go down, some of them go
dry entirely, then without a drop of
rain they vill again till and swell to
their normal condition. It is also
known that water can bo taken from
streams and without any effort to de
flect the water in tho irrigation ditch
back to the streams It will find its own
way, so that no perceptible deficiency
will be noticed in the streams below
tho point from which the water was
taken. Nebraska is tho grandest stato
for irrigation purposes in the uniou."
Etcry regularly organized Irrigation
ditch company shall bo entitled to one
delegate. Editors of agricultural and
irrigation publications in Nebraska,
will, on presentation of credentials,
showing their present position or occu
pation, bo entitled to scats in tho con
