as to destroy the grasses entirely. It bad
been thoroughly demonstrsled that unless
Irrigated, crops could not be raised In the
northwestern part of the state and hat
where an attempt was made to cultivate
the lands the result Was only to kill out
the natural grasses and It would require
years for them to grow in again. .The
bulk of the western Nebraska lands, he
considered, could be better used for graz
ing than anything else.
I. A. Fort of North Platte thought some
thing must be done to save the surface
water which found Its way Into the Platte
rivers. Tbe South Platte, he said, bad
been a dry bed of sand for years and for
the last few seaaons much of the time the
North Platte had been dry. at hla city. If
Wyoming and the western part of the
state used all tbe water and did not re
turn any of it to the river bed, it was diffi
cult to see where tbe water supply for Irri
gation was coming from.
At the session this evening resolutions
were adopted favoring the passage of mora
stringent laws for the protection of land
lords, ' encouraging building and loan as
sociations, but condemning the tontine
plan; favoring a national irrigation law,
but opposing the so-called compromise bill
now before congress or any other bill that
takes away tbe actual control ot water by
