LINCOLN, May lL- Special. -The su

pany and Its assoclatea won in the lower
court the judge making an apportionment
of th water m the river on the theory
of priority of filing and amount of land
under ditch. The Trl-8tate bases Its con
tention on the adjudication of the state
board of Irrigation, which awarded It 1.141
miner's Inches. This allowance waa on
th bast of water for 10,000 acres and It
taken would require all tha water, prac

right Inheres to the lend, the company's
contention being that the stste board of
Irrigation was right when It slotted water
for 30,000 acres snd that It Is entitled to
thst much irrespective of whether It has
been used all the time, but the right
existed to turn it onto the land whenever
the ditches were completed.
The other ditch companies base their
contention on another theory. They ad
mit the Tri-State right to water for lands
under ditch when their own filings were
made and their ditches were constructed,
but assert their ditches wer constructed
and improvements made to utilise, water
which the origins! appropriation eras not
using at th time of th construction of
th later ditches. In other words, that

which waa under ditch or In process of

which were not Irrigated at th Um the

North Platte valley, as follows: When
that company waa Irrigating only a tew

subsequent approprlatora, but when the
Trl-8tate concluded to extend Its ditches
snd demanded the maximum amount of
water there was nothing; left tor those
getting just the proper amount of
lubrication under all conditions.
In addition to eliminating the
offensive smoking exhaust and pro
viding perfect lubrication, this novel
oiling system is also extremely
economical 300 to 400 miles to a
