Water Users Gain
Measure of Relief
(From a Staff Correspondent)
'LINCOLN. July 21. (Special.)-Deputy
Auditor Minor, who comes from tho irri
gated district of northwest Nebraska,
has been endeavoring for some time to
get somo concessions from the govern
ment In tho payment of water rights by
users of government water and at last
the effort has been successful, accord
ing to advices received from Socrctary
B. J. Segar, secretary of the North
Platto Water Users' association. Mr.
Under date of July 17 a wire was re
ceived from tho department stating that
water will be furnished for the balance
of the IrrlKatlnc season of 1313 whether
1913 maintenance Is paid or nut, but that
a penalty of 1 cent per acre per month
win ins charged until paid, ihih pcnatiy
will amount to less than $4 per eighty If
tho same Is left unpaid until December,
at which time most crops will have been
marketed. This will be of great benefit
to many o Itho runners.
A further concessions was ruodc to tho
settlors by a recent public ontlec which
provided that those who have paid all
operation and maintenance charges duo
before December 1 ,1913, need pay but
one-third of the 12 per acre building
charge that will become delinquent De
cember 1, 1913. or about 70 cents per acre.
Tho effect of this will be that many
who would be unable to pay the 91.10 per
acre maintenance plus tho 12 per acre
building charge, or a total of $3.10 per
acre, will bo able to pay the 11.10 plus
4 cents penalty and 70 cents building
charge, or a total of $1.71 per acre.
Aonlher small measure ot roller granted
by the same notice Is allowing a water
user who has, by reason of conflicting
rulings In tho past, or a reduction of hl
irrigated area, heen compelled to over
pay his building chargo to use toward
paying his maintenance whatever credit
ho may have left nfter paying his 70
cents. Heretofore one might have $200
overpayment on his building charge ac
count ana still nave his lieaagates shut
down for nonpayment of $100 for main
tenance. Thero is ample water supply under tho
government canal and can be no short
age, wnen twenty years aro given to
rt-pay uncic aam, tne residence restric
tion Is removed and water rights arc
granted to Individuals for all tho lands
they may acquire, Nebraska will have
the greatest and most successful Irri
gated section In tho United States.
FREMONT, Neb., July 21.-(Speclal.)-The
old elevator south of tho Union de
pot and tho north row of sheds of tho
Consolidated Fuel company burned Sun
day morning. Fire was discovered on
the roof of the shed next to tho elevator
about 9:30 and Is presumed to have caught
from a passing train. Aided by a. north
wind it spread rapidly down the line of
sheds, .several of which, were filled with
coal. The elevator, "Which was empty and
had not been used for years, belonged to
an Omaha company and Is a total loss.
The loss uf the. fuel compnny is hard to
estimate. It will probably run about
$3;O0O and is' covered by Insurance. Their
