j (From a Staff Correspondent)
I WASHINGTON. Jan. 1 (Special Tele
i gram ) The Irrigation project now under
j pror-ess cf construction In western Ne
I braska and eastern Wyoming Is causing
both projector and beneficiaries consid
erable inconvenience, one because they
cannot complete it at once and the other
because they cannot have water turned
on their lands at once. The farmer liv
ing in the proposed Irrigated area are
urging upon Director Newell the necessity
for early completion
Senator Burkett ha taken the matter
up ml;h Mr. Newell, and at a recnt eon-
ferenr between the two the situation was
pretty thoroughly canvassed.
According to Mr. Newell. !t Is Impossi
ble to set an exact day upon which the
completion of the work may be expected,
depending as it does upon the rapidity
with which funds may be provided. The
fact that homesteaders along the uncom
pleted portion of the work are growing
discouraged Is one of the features that
wss anticipated when the work was be-g-an.
It was then even tifged hat the
land should be withdrawn from entry,
since it could not be foretold upon what
portions water could be diverted. This
waa done, it Is said. In one or two cases
elsewhere, with gratifying resuita. In the
North Platte country the land was never
withdrawn from entry, and the result
ha been. o the director sta'es. that
those settling on lands not cow irrigateJ
are suffering from arid or semi-arid con-

the settlers could construct, under f roper
directions, their own laterals and reole
credit for this work in proing vp on
their lands. The director stated that this
plan not ten universally adopted
by settlers in the district now suffering
as he had hoped and that it was a source
of greet regret to him.
It was made clear also that in a work
of a fxeat magnitude as this enterprise
plans must necessarily be made which
could not at once be executed, for funds
must be provided. Private capital tried
all the easy schemes for Irrigation, and
when the government took hold cf the
matter it is said it was with a knowledge
that little could be accomplished with
out large expenditure. In western Ne
braska there were storage work and
canals, la.-ge and expensive, to be com
pleted before the laterals could convey
water; yet the plan must be made pub
lic, and settlement followed upon lands
that could not be irrigated for a long
