have longed, these many years, Would
some day materialize.
Prof. Caldwell, early In the campaign
for removal, was opposed to removal. In
answering a card sent out by the Omaha
Alumni association of the University of
Nebraska the noted Nebraska Instructor
declures that unity of the .educational In
terests of tho state will be accomplished
by removal, and he, therefore, favors the.
change that will bring the two schools to

farm. When the first suggestions for re
moval were made Prof. Caldwell waa em
phatically opposed to the change; iw,
Blnce he has gone over the facts, and
weighed the details of removal and t.i
tenslon, he has taken a stand for removal.
By the Omaha alumni the Instructor
was asked: "Do you approve the action

Regents, In unanimously recommending to
the legislature the enlargement and re

In answering this quostton, Prof. Cald

learned that other members of the fac

now come over to the side of the re

for the legislature to follow Is that of
appropriating enough funds to establish
a real great school on the farm.

LINCOLN, Feb. S.-(Speclul.)-Tho legis
lators are being worked on conMerobly
to leglslato In the matter of tho water
power of the state, and to do something
to prevent the Statn Board of Irrigation
from giving away all the fatcr power.
This agitation has reached such u stage
that an Investigation of the present laws
and tho board records was made, with
the result that contrary to the Impres
sion being given the state this board Uns
not and cannot give away the water
power of the state. An Investigation of
I me inencni laws ana me recoras oi tne
I board by a state official brought out tho
Apply I iik Wntrrn In Use.
Tho law Is clear to tho effect that tho
State Board of Irrigation has no power to
grunt a water right. Thut power Is
lodged exclusively In the legislature. Tho
only power which tho State Board of Ir
rigation has In rolatlon to this matter
Is the power to either approve or reject
an implication for a nermlt. This Permit
is not an appropriation of the public j
waters of the stute. It simply entitles
the applicant to undertake Its project ,
within six months after the approval '
thereof. Tho right given by tho permit Ib
merely a contingent right, and Is entirely
defeated by tho failuro of tho applicant j
to comply with the requirements of the
statuto within six months after the appli
cation Is approved.
Section 28, article 11, chapter 93a, Com
piled Statutes, makes it the duty of the
State Board of Irrigation, though Its sec
retary, to approve un application wheru
the ro Is unappropplated water in "tho
sourco of supply named In eald .applica

plicant to take such steps as may be nec
essary to perfect an appropriation there

Is BUbJect to cancellation. If he goes
ahead and constructs his project he (Jes
not even then have an appropriation until
he shall have applied the waters to a

The hearing was upon two bills bofnic

farmer to buy feeders from them?"
"Absolutely not," Swift replied. "Tho
