frrlcattom Eaperlmeat Statloae.
Chancellor Andrews and other university
authorities are preparlag to give their
united support to the suggestion of Senator
Dietrich; that Irrigation experiment stations
be established In the semi-arid regions of
Nebraska. The real estate dealers of the
state. In their annual convention In Fre
mont lat week, adopted resolutions en
dorsing the idea and directed a communica
tion to the Nebraska delegation In congress
asking tbelr co-operation In the project.
Chancellor Andrews will probably ask the
next state legislature to provide the means
necessary for the organisation of stations.
Senator Dietrich briefly outlines bU plan
"At the present time, not only Nebraska
but all states In the seml-arld districts of
the west, are bending every effort towards
securing favorable legislation for a suitable
system of Irrigation. They are encouraged
In this because It has, at last, become ap
parent to the people of the east, that the
whole country is made to auder so long
as the vast area of waste-land of the cen
tral and Pacific portions of our natural
commonwealth are permitted to remain
untitled and uninhabited. With this real
ization comes the hope that such steps
will be taken, such measures adopted, as
will make irrigation In the west an ex
tended practice as well aa a universal
Another vital subject In this connec
tion, and one In which the real estate
men of Nebraska should be interested, Is
that of guarding and strengthening the
Agricultural department of the State uni
versity. Aa that department atands to
day. It possesses an unusually able corps
of Instructors and investigators, but la re
stricted in Jts usefulness by Impoverished
facilities. Its greatest need is a building
commensurate with Ita work. Unfortu
nately United Statea government baa
ruled against aiding the various statea In
this one respect. But It will, however, co
operate In every way after the statea them
selves have provided the necessary build
ings. Nebraska ahould not hesitate at this
responsibility, but should forthwith procure
the quarters required and asalst the uni
versity In placing her department on a
par, or even above the now ablest agricul
tural colleges in the Union.
When this ia done. It will be an easy
and a natural consequence to bava experi
mental stations established la the western
part of the atate, belonging to and man
aged In, conjunction with tha department
at Lincoln. The services of these experi
mental stations will be of untold value.
Through them may be tried the different
theoriea of aoil, culture and enrichment.
and likewise forestatlon by meana of plants
and treea. Whatever knowledge la gained
in this direction contributes an hundred
fold to the betterment of the atate."
FrcmoBt Canal and Power Scheme.
J. F. Hanson, secretary of tha Fremont
Canal and Power company, was here this
afternoon examining state records which
have a bearing on the proposed Fremont
power plant scheme. Mr. Hanson said the
granting of the recent application of the
Central Irrigation company of Columbus
could have no adverse effect on the power
projects contemplated in the vicinity of
Fremont. The application is for an In
crease in the allowance of from 1,200 to
2,400 cubic feet of water per second. The
board granted the original claim, but the
second application Is atlll under considera
tion. It the second application is granted It
will mean that the flow or water In the
Platte river In the vicinity of Fremont will
be more even than now," aald Mr. Hanson.
In other words, the Columbus company
proposes to store water In a reservoir when
the water In the Loup river la high, for
usa when tha water In tha river la low.
The effect will be, aa I have aald, tor tha
storing of water for tha dry aeaaon will
make tha flow below their plant ateady and
oontlnuoua throughout tha year. The Loup
emptlea into tba Platte above Uie point
where we propose to start our canal and
any decreaae or Increase In tha Bow of that
stream means a corresponding change in
the flow of the Platte."

HOW TO CONTROL OPEN RANGE
Settlera Flllna-a that Are Really
Intarcat of Stock Growera
MULLEN. Neb.. Feb. 14. To the Editor
of The Bee: I have read with much In
terest Mr. Fort's letter of-the. 12th Inst.,
and If you would care to publish them I
have a. few proofs and staisments to sub
mit to you to show where hef ts right. ..- .
This la about the fashion the settler doea
here to get land:
He will pick a place to Ale where there
are not any neighbors and In a valley
where the grass grows suitable for bay;
then he will go to his neighbors within
two or three miles from him and say,
'Here, Mr. B., I live over there two miles.
We will save to cut the range In halt."
This Is done and a fence put through an
equal distance from each of their land,
unless Mr. B. wouldn't want to give It up.
It he didn't, he would go to town and pick
up aome person who had a claim right and
have him file near enough to the other fel
low so he could not claim any range. Mr.
would pay for the filing, put a house
on it and all the filer would do would be to
stay on it once in six months. At the end
of fourteen months Mr. B. would have him
prre up and pay all expenses and give
him a bonus of $200 for tha land. There
are lots of people who would aell their
rights for that amount.
Not long ago an instance came up. I
will not name the parties, however. A
big cattle man named Smith came into
the country and bought out three or four
ranches. He had the right to claim about
three miles of range owned by a "Mr. John
eon," ao Johnaon saw he was going to lose
some range and bay land- He' came to
town before Smith knew what ha waa up to
and got a widow to file on a piece of land,
This spoiled Smith's proposition and he
didn't get the range. Not long ago the
womaa proved up by paying out, Johnson
putting up the dough, and when aha got
her deed aha deeded the land to Johnson
and got $300 for It
I know of one big outfit that came Into
the country a few years ago and after buy
ing several pieces of land and leaaiog some
school land they paid every man who
worked for them $100 each to file on land
and prove up on It Just as I have men
tloned. -I agree with Mr. Fort when he
says this ought to be stopped. It ought
to be fixed In such a way that a aettler, if
be paid out, could not aell for at leaat two
years. This country Is mostly bills, and
after a short time settlers are coming la
so fsst and people filing on the choiceat
landa In tha way mentioned, there will be
no hope for the man who wants to coma
here to make a living and bava room to
graze a few head of cattle.
If each aettler would be allowed 640 acres
and requirements be auch that ha would
have to eettle down and live on and make
it his home It would make a regular bo
nansa for western Nebraska. But the
way It la now tha small man has no show.
only for that little. Insignificant 160 acrea
Hoping that our United 8 tales government
will-take some hold on this In the near
future, I am, youra respectfully,

O'NEILL, Neb., Feb. 14. To the Editor
of The Bee: I crave your indulgence to
answer the letter ot Mr. R. M. Allen of
Ames, Neb., which appeared In The Bee
under date of the 10th Inst. Mr. Allen
admits he would be against the land leas
ing bill If the leasing privilege did not
extend to "homesteads on which filing has
been made and which are In procesa ot
That portion of section 1, of House Roll
7,212, by Bowersock, which refers to the
leasing question, resds: "Preference for
such leases shall be given to Owners ot
cultivated agricultural land for leasable
lands abutting upon their freeholds in pro
portion of ten acres for leasehold to ona
of freehold. A . like preference of ten
acres of leasehold to one ot freehold shall
be given to stock growers who are free
holders." As I understsnd he law, a
homesteader is not a freeholder In this
connection until after be has made final
proof and received a final receipt or pat
ent from the government, consequently. If
my contention ts correct, under this bill
the thousands of homesteaders whose homes
now dot the sandhills and who have not
yet made final proof could not leaae a
foot of land under thla bill, unless there
was some not leased under the provisions
Mr. Allen, who signs himself "General
Manager," wants to know what I mean by
"clandestine." In answer will say that It
means "secret, private, hidden, withdrawn
from public view," and I meant it to have
just that meaalng In my letter of the 6th
Inst, to The Bee. There is no doubt In
my mind of any man familiar with the
origin and history of this bill but that It
la being surreptitiously and clandestinely
fostered by a powerful lobby In Washington.
Certainly such little "glmblets" and "sa
tellites" as Mr. Allen and myself are out
openly for and against the bill, but the
power behind the curtain ts not exposing its
hand. It realizes if it did It would mean
the death of the bill. Where, I ask, are
the small stockmen and agriculturists who
reside west of the 100th meridian, clamor
ing for the passage of tbla bill. It is true
there , are a lot of understrappers who
howl for its passage when their masters
pull the string. I venture to say there
are not a dozen men In Nebraska demand
ing the passage ot this bill. There may
be aome who have Interests in thla section
asking for Its passage, but they do not re
side here; they do not rear their families
here, they do not school them here, they
do not have to put up with all the trials,
hardships and inconveniences of frontier
life, and, in my judgment, Mr. Editor, they
are not entitled to as much consideration
as those who do. JOHN O. MAHER.
