Trip to Denver Will Result in Plea
of Intervention in Colorado
Wyoming Suit.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Aug. 10.-(Speclal.)-Attor-ney
Oeneral Reed thinks the data he was
able to secure at Ienver relative to the
rtghta of water users in western Ne
braska, and now threatened In the lltlsa.
tlon between Wyoming and Colorado, will
he of much value should this state decide
to Intervene. The attorney general spent
three days at IVnver and will later go
to Cheyenne to collect additional evi
dence. Wyoming brought stilt sgalnat Colorado
two yeara and a half ago In the federal
supreme court. An Injunction Is asked
against Colorado Irrigators to prevent the
diversion of water from the Larsmle
river, which, flows Into the North Platte,
Into channels which would send It down
the other side of the dlvl.le. emptying Into
the South Platte.
The state of Colorado claims that under
Its constitution at the time It waa ad
mitted to the union In 1876 It had an ab
solute ownership and control of all water
resources originating within Its own bor
ders. Irrespective of priorities In other
statea. This la the vltsl point in the lltl
gaton. Should Colorado Insist on that
contention, Nebraska will Join forces with
Wyoming In urging the doctrine that
prlorltiea govern, but If Colorado will
waive thla part of the pleadings and have
tha case tried on Its merits Nebraska will
not Intervene.
The Wyoming-Colorado suit will be
reached for argument In the aupreme
court at Washington next October and
Mr. Reed plans to be there In time to
present his plea for Intervention. The
last legislature appropriated $12,500 for
the use of the state legal department In
defending the rights of Nebraska water
Before going to Denver the attorney
reneral conducted a hearing at Sootts
hluff on the complaint of water users In
the North Platts valley, relative to scop
age waters from the irrigation district
there. Both the state and federal gov
ernments claim Jurisdiction there and the
federal government was represented at
the heart.

Ancient Medal
Is Unearthed in
Field at McCook
tKrom a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Aug. 10. Special.) A Span
ish medal tOO years old waa unearthed
near Mot Jock recently by Harney Allen,
while plowing if his father's farm. The
piece la of solid silver, weighs an ounce
and three-quarters and Is over two Inches
In diameter, according to former State
Treasurer Oordeal. who la In Lincoln to
day on bualness.
The medal bears no date, hut on one
side Is a relief portrait of Charles III of
Spain, who died In 17SS. The wording on
the medallion calls the ruler "King of
Spain and emperor of the Indies." On the
reverse side Is a laurel wreath enclosing
the words. "Al Merito." Indicating that
the trophy was given to some renowned
Spaniard "for merit."
The antiquity of the medal leada to the
supposition that It may have belonged to
some early Spanish explorer when Ne
braska was a part of the old Louisiana
territory before 1803. The finder of the
trophy, a boy who has lived In Lincoln
several years past during the school
year, may present It to the State His
