Mi Meade is highest aulhoriky on Ihe li ng. it ion quest Ion and gave some argil incuts that aie well woilhym" c.ircliil consideiat ion. lie was reminded, lie said, ol t he old itidian who could not see how niari could be made mi; i, dnsl . Ne braska, and in not I he ent ire est, have plenty ol dust but that is not sullieieni : we need water and mud. The queslim of nrigat hm involves a groat social problem. In past" wars flic eastern portions of t he country were in use and the neid of irrigation was not, feif beci'iiso t here was plenty of rain. It.it the fill ure must, lie Tar dilTeient liom tin; past. Arid re gions, hit heito unset t led, will have to maintain a populat uni and come under t he plow. There are today, said t he ' speaker, between 7,."itio,0()() and oimi,uoi acres under irrigal ion. This is a wonder fully large amount, when we consider that it has all come about through private enterprise, and with no legis lation whatever. It has been done, however, in a haphazard way, because; there was no need of economy. St reams furnished plenty of water for all. To lap a stream was a simple matter, and nobody objected, but henceforth, irrigation will have to be promoted by lame corporations or by the state. Private "apital will be entirely in sullleicnt The question, said Mr Meade, is not at all now. The future must tie built upon the past and this very fact gives the problem a complexity that is almost never realized. Iiy long years of usage, riveis have come to be claimed Iiy diloreut peoples. Even if the government were to as sume full control of irrigation, what would be dune with existing rights and claims to streams and ditches-:' Then; was at t irst such a disregard nf rights that men have come to own water supplies, as they own farms, the rights to which can he bought and sold. Yet. t hese sources of water ought to be common property: for, in the moral sense, there is nu such a tirng; as"private owership or a stream. Water wajs belong to the county through' which they pass. The distribution of water is or greatest importance and can be dealt with only by legislation. This ract makes the problem too complicated to oe solved by individual states. It makes federal ownership uccehiiary. Put the present need is nu edu cation or the people so as to over come a prevailing prejudice. People (Continued on page '2 ) A DEFEAT AND A I 'TO IIY.
