TWO COMPANIES EI DISPUTE
Enterprise Concern and Trl-Stat
Land Company Bath Claim
Right to Water frem
GERINQ. Neb., Aug. 24. (Special. ) A
nit was filed in district court her this
week which promises to Introduce th big
gest Irrigation litigation that the state of
Nebraska has ever seen. Involving the right
of some fifteen Irrigation ditches to water
from the North Platte river.
The Enterprise Irrigation district Is the
plaintiff and the Tri-Stata Land company
Is defendant along with all the other
ditches that take water from the river In
this valley. The action Is aimed, however,
to determine whether the Trl-Stata com
pany's big Irrigation ditch has a water right
prior to all the other ditches, as It claims.
or a right subsequent to all the others, as
they claim. All the ditches, aside from the
Tri-Stata, have formed an association for
the purpose of carrying through the oourts
this suit ln order to determine finally the
question of priority as between the Trl
State and themselves; but the petition re
cites that the Enterprise ditch brings the
action and makes the others codefendants
with the Trl-State compaany ,"ln order that
tha relative rights or appropriation of water
from said river of all of said parties may
be Judicially determined In one action, and
thus prevent a multiplicity of suits."
The petition further sets forth that tha
Trl-State Land company claims a water
appropriation, prior to all others, of 1,142
cubic feet per second. The petition con
"That the average flow of water through
said river at or near the headgate of the
canal of the plaintiff and that of the de
fendant Trl-State Land company during
the months of August, September, October
and November has been for several years
last past, and will be In the future, much
less than the amount of water which said
defendant, the Trl-State Land company,
claims a prior right to divert from said
river; and if said company be permitted
to divert 1,141 cubic feet of water per sec
ond of time prior to the plaintiff herein,
the said plaintiff and the users of water
from Its canal will be wholly deprived of
water for irrigation purposes during the
latter part of the month of July and dur
ing all of tha months of August, September,
October and November of each and every
year, to the Irreparable damage and Injury
of the plaintiff herein and tne users of
water from Its said canal."
The dispute which this action Is brought
to settle arose from the purchase by the
Trl-State Land company of the canal and
rights of the Farmers' . Canal company,
which was the first Irrigation enterprise
started In the North Platta valley, in the
late '80s. The farmers canal was built for
only about flfttean miles and work then
ceased until the Trl-State company bought
the canal and rights ln 1904. In the mean
time th other ditches represented ln this
suit came into existence and have used
the water of the river under their several
appropriations acquired at the time of
their organisation. Their contention
that the Trl-State company has an, appro
priation only equal to that of tha old
Farmers' Canal company, or sufficient to
water some 2,000 acres of land; while the
Trl-State company asserts Its right to about
forty times that amount of water, or suf
flcient to water about 80,000 acres. On this
point the plaintiffs petition alleges as fol
"That, neither said Trl-State Land com
pany nor its grantors, nor either of them,
ever acquired a right to appropriate from
said river any amount of water whatsoever
except a sufficient amount to Irrigate
about 2,000 acres of land or twenty-eight
cubic feet of water per second of time;
that if said Tri-State Land company ever
did, by virtue of any proceedings taken by
said company or its grantors, or either of
them, or otherwise, Initiate a right sf ap
propriation which upon application to a
beneficial use would ripen Into a right to
appropriate waters from said river, said
rights so initiated, if any, have become
lost to said Trl-State Land company and
Its grantors by.nonuse and abandonment
thereof for a period of more than ten
years from the date of Initiating or ac
quiring said alleged right"
It Is expectei that the suit will be bit
terly fought on both sides sr.l will un
doubtedly go through the highest court
of the state. The attorneys filing the peti
tion for plaintiff are Morrow ft Morrow- of
Denver and Scott's Bluff.
tlon Is result of the Junket, along with the
report and recommendation of the recent
grand Jury, which thoroughly Investigated
the preeent building and its ohoommnda
tlons, finding It unsafe and not adapted to
the present needs of the county. Phelps
