havo boon so used t' free use of water
that thorn Is great opposition to any
control by law. Yet, this must come
sooner or later and it ought not to
bo allowed to run until the law must
bo called in to settle disputes. There
must bo an administrative policy
giving perfect" security to farmers.
This is not a simplo matter and has
been much discusser!. For instance,
the IMatte is private property in
Colorado and in Wyoming water
rights arc at tached to the land. What
would Nebraska do ifthis river wore
drained In those states?
Mr Meanc commondeu tho policy
recently adopted by Australia. In
that commonwealth, an interstate
commission determines the percen
tage "f water that belongs to dilTei
ent states and the local laws control
its use. Such a policy, lie thinks,
ought to be adopted in this counry.
Hut, lirst of all, the codltlon of
alTairs ought to be ascertained and
laws looking toward an investiuat ion
ought tOpbe speedilv passed.

'J'be usual method of luising the wa

bucket and on tho 01 hor a weight of
mud and cornstulkh By mouns of ono

into a canal and f r m thore i.s raised
anothor six feet by means of u second

The irrigation laws aro almost all
French, and ono peculiar foaluro iB that
in limo of drouth iho governmont takes
charge of all the irrigating and then
only crops requiring a minimum amount
of water aro irrigated. As rice takes a
groat deal of water it is not irrigated
during thoso seasons. There aro boiiio
places where machinery has boon 111
stalled for irrigating purpores and has
proved very succesofui.
Mr. Moado then showed tho groat oj -portunitios
for using niaehinory for this
purpose In the western stales quoting
examples of its utilization in Hawaii,
and along tho Gulf coast.
Ho concluded Ins lecturo by empha

irrigating and tho important part it
