(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, April 11 - Spec ll. Gover
nor Aldrich today officially welcomed
to the atate Juuson Harmon, governor of
Ohio, who la In Omaha. He waa unable
to (o to Omaha, but aent toe following
telegram: "Ai one Buckeye to another
I tender you fretting and a hearty wel
come to the great atate of Nebraska.
Hay the Lord attend you In all worthy
efforts with a dlacrlmlnatlng hand.
Would like to entertain you at my home."
The atate Is preparing to alnk new
wells at the Soldier's home at Grand
Island. The water supply has been ob
tained from fourteen two-Inch drive wells
and these have either been filled up with
sand or the piping baa corroded until
there Is difficulty In obtaining sufficient
water, it la now proposed to put down
nve live-Inch drive wells, which are
guaranteed to give an ample supply and
will not be so liable to get clogged as
the smaller ones. Commissioner Cowlee
says there Is seventy-five acres of wheat
on the home grounds, sown on alfalfa
breaking, which Is the best be baa seen
this year. , ,
The water supply question at the tuber
culosis hospital at Kearney haa been
solved, apparently. Air pressure haa been
used to force the water to the top story
of the building, but the old pump did
not prove satisfactory. An electrical con
trivance waa installed, however, which
starts the pumps whenever the pressure
gets below thirty pounds, and stops them
when It reaches forty pounda The en
tire apparatus la automatic.
The Board of Publio Lands and Build
ings haa bought-a new boiler' for the
Kearney Industrial srhool, and thla aft'
eraoon want out to the penitentiary to

A Id rich Asks for Water.
Governor Aldrich called on Secretary
of the Interior Fisher today and urged
the claims ef settlers In the Irrigated
section of weatern Nebraska to the sur
plus water from the Pathfinder dam.
The government has already consented
to let the Interstate Ditch company bave
water enough to supply lands already
under Irrigation cultivation, and after
considerable pressure had agreed to fur
nish water for all kinds along that ditch
which are already occupied by settlers.
As there is still a surplus of water the
ditch company wants water to Irrigate
lands which are not occupied, . that they
may be sold and give opportunity to
None of the Irrigation companies on
the north aide of the river haa enough
water during dry seasons, especially dur
ing the months of July, August snd Sep
' tember when beets.' potatoes and the
most profitable crops need It the worst.
There Is plenty of water la the reservoir,
but government engineers art Inclined
to hold It for the benefit at -lands not yet
Improved and which belong 'to the gov
ernment ! Wyoomlng.
Secretary Fisher assured the governor
be would see to ft that actual settlers
who had land under the ditch, but with
Insufficient water, and those who wanted
water to turn onto the land to make It
fruitful, could have it as long as there
was any to give from the Pathfinder
reservoir. He said that it such settlers
would make out the proper statements
under oath and forward them to the In
terior department they would get results.
He further said that he would not con
sent to have the water turned over to
some corporation or firm to speculate
with, but that it must be shown that
the water was going to the man who
m anted to use It He Intimated that cor
porations which had been balked In get'
ting control of the water were concealing
from settlers the real conditions, because
they hoped by some means to gst It to
