Discusses the National Irrigation
The chapel time yesterday wan oc
cupied) by Professor Stout upon the
Biibject of the national Irrigation conu
gress, which was held at Ogden a few
wcoke ago. Professor Stout sold; in
p "The first congress was held in Salt
Lake City eleven years ago. At that
time there was little or no interest
outside of the west What little in
terest there was in the oast was de
cidely hostile to the reclamation anl
irrigation of the arid west. The diffi
culty from the very outset wa& to get
capital interested, because the uncer
tainty of return from capital invested
was well known.
"At first it was proposed' to cede
all the add land to the state in which
it existed and to have the state devote
capital for the irrigation of such ter
ritory but this plan was not found
at all feasible. Another plan was that
the United States government should
take up the question) and by direct
appropriation) by congress should irri
gate and reclaim the arid land. This
plan, also haxl too many opponents,
and was1 not carried into effect.
It was not until June 17, 1902, that
anything was done by congress to
carry out any plan1 for the irrigation of
the western' land. At that time the
Irrigation Bill was passed, providing
that the money derived from the Fale
of the state land should be employed
Ini the Improvement of the arid land.
The result of thiis act has been that
the fund, in the year that has elapsed
since Its passage has grown to $1G,000,
000. This is a sort of revolving fund,
that Is that although it Is in.ve8ted In
the irrigation and reclamation of arid
land, yet nt is expected that the land
so reclaimed must pay it back, so it
is a constantly Increasing permanent
The principal question before the ir
rigation congress this year was wheth
er or nor the public land act should be
C repealed. TIiobc who woio in favor
of repeal held that the public land
acts, such as the desert land acts and
the timber and stone nets, aided in
the perpetration of many frauds and
instead of aiding the land seeker aid1
ed1 the capitalist in obtaining a greater
portion! of the land.
The opponents to the repeal base'd
their argument on the fact that the
measures1 were only a year old and
had not been given a fair chance. They
said that If tha laws were repealed
there would be the sum of $1 6,000,000
already collected on land. They held
that the supporters of the repeal of
feree) no adequate substitute. They
urged that amendments be adopted so
that the laws might be carried Into
effect in a better maimer but objected
to complete repeal.
The debate on the question was in-
teresting. The leaders ini favor of re
peal were George H. Maxwell, W. P.
Smytho and Senator Gibson; those op
(posed1 were Congressman MortTell, Con
gressman Brooks and J. P. Irish. Ah
a result the ones in favor of the repeal
were defeated. Nebraska's voto stood
two to one against repeal. The mem
bers from Omaha, Lincoln, and one
from the western part of the- btate,
were, for repeal, the rest being against.
The congress urged better admlnJs
