oltlsens, upwards of 1.500 persons being
Mr. Root spoke on th great prospect
for the future development of the .country
by th Investment of American capital.
He pointed out that since the time
twenty year ago, when the late Secretary
Flalne founded the bureau of South
American republics the conditions had
greatly changed. The TTnlted States, from
debtor nation which had been compelled
to borrow money to build Its railways, had
In a Comparatively short time become a
creditor nation, with lar,o surplus capi
tal, ready and available for disposal to
help other countries attain th same posi
tion. ' Argentina was a country with great
potentialities, offering security, protection
and a remunerative return for foreign cap
ital, by whose aid It would be enabled to
pay Its debts and, like Its sister republic.
the Vnlted States, develop Its rich re
sources, snd also become a creditor nation
and help on the smaller Latin states.
Mr. Root was proud to see his country
men succeeding so Well In the Argentine
Republic, and he believed they embodied
before the Argentina people the beot tradi
tions of the character of the American na
tion. - .
POINTS ON IRRIGATION LAWS
D. Clem Dearer Thinks Most Im
portant Statutes Are Most Gen
"Thafe ar a great many people In this
part of the country who, not understanding
the Irrigation laws, look upon an Irriga
tion project as a mystery." said D. Clem
Deavef of the Burlington Immigration de
partment. "But the fact Is there sre no
laws upon the statute books that are more
plainly defined and more easily under
stood than are the Irrigation laws. ' I
think It Is also safe to say there Is no
Other class of laws so much In the Interest
of the people as are the Irrigation laws.
"There Are three practical ways of get
ting water for Irrigation. First, the com
pany plan, whereby a company enters Into
a contract with the state to supply water
for designated tracts of land at a desig
nated price per acre. Under this plan after
90 per cent of the water contracted for has
been purchased by the farmers the com
pany loses control of the plant, which con
trol passes Into the hand of the people
using the water, the management of the
project being directed by a board of di
rector elected by the water user. After
all of the water provided for In the con
tract with the state has passed .Into the
hands of Individuals tha original com
pany passes out of existence, the com
pany getting its profits from the difference
in the cost of water to them and the price
they aell it X ... :.' ... , . ;
. "The second plan, is for th government
to build the Irrigation ditches and lateral. '
Under thl plan the government, In fact,
Imply loans the settler thi money for
ten year without Interest, and those Who
take up or own lands under the govern
ment ditch repay the government for the
cost of putting water on their lands In
ten equal annual payments, the first pay
ment to be made after raising the second
crop, wnen ail or tnese payments have
been made by the Individuals the govern
ment gees out of the irrigation business
in that .particular locality and th projoct
Is -managed by a board of directors eleoted
by the water users.
"The third plan, and one which Is now
becoming very popular, is where the set
tlers organise a district to build Irriga
tion works, the same as people In our
state organise a district to build a school
house. A number of settler can form a
water user' association and vote bond
for building their ditches and lateral. If
their bonds ar saleable they have no dif
ficulty In raising money to bulLd-the Irri
gation works. Generally speaking, such
bonds are sought for, but If for any rea
son . there . any doubt about being able
to market ii.e bonds they can be Issued
In .two classes, preferred and common
bonds, and each . Individual of the water
users' association can enter Into an agree
ment with tha association to do a certain
number of days' work on the project and
take their pay In the common bonds. For
example, if there are 200 water users In
the association, and each of them will
agree to do 100 days' work and take their
pay In common bond, thi will add valu
to the preferred bonds and give them
a market value.
"Generally speaking, there ahould be no
mystery whatever about' the building of
Irrigation projects, as all of the law gov
erning Irrigation ar very plain and easily
