Bulletin 177 of the Office of Experi
meut Stations, United States De
partmcntof Agriculture, just issued
gives t he results of experiments cov
emit several years, performed in
cooperation with the State of Call
fomia, for the purpose of estimating
the losses of water by evaporation
from irrigated fields and determining
the effect of different methods of
applying water and of cultivating
fields in checking these loses. This
work was done in California under
the supervision of Samuel Foriier,
under the direction of Elwood Mead,
Chief cf Irragatiou and Draiuage In
Iu southern California water has a
very high value and- the supply is
limited, making it importa t to eco
nomize in every way possible. Thou
sands of dollars have been spent lu
lining ditches with cement and iu
putting in underground pipes for
carrying water to the points where
it is put upon the land, so that losses
in transporting water, which in open
earth chaunels often equal one half
the supply at the head of a ditch
system, have been largely eliminated.
It has been realized that there are
still large losses occurring when the
water is applied to the soil, but there
has been little or no knowledge 6f the
extent of these losses or the exact
effect of different methods adopted
for checking them. This work of
Professor Fortier's is an attempt to
measure both by means of experi
ments with soils in water-iackoted
tank, each tank containing from 300
to 1,300 pounds of soil. .Water was
applied to the soils, and the soils were
cultivated in such manner as to re'
scmble the different methods of treat
ing soils in irrigated fields.
In two experiments with cultivation
as soon a? possible after the applica
tion of water, the losses from culti
vated soils were but one-half and one-
third, respectively, as great as those
from similar soils receiving the same
quantities of water, but not cultiva
ted after irrigation. The savings
were 5 and 2 per cent of the quant
ities applied in the two experiments.
A second series of experiments
included the application of water on
tt-e surfaces, not followed by culti
vation, and the protection of the
wet surfaces by placing upon them
mulches of dry soil 4, 8, and 10 inches
thick. In this case the iosses in
fourteen days following Irrigation
were: From unprotected soil, 23 per
cent of the water applied; from soil
protected oy a 4 inch mulch, b per
cent; from soil protected by an 8 inch
mulch, 2J per cent; and from soil
protected by a 10 inch mulch, 1 per
cent of the water applied. After
these fourteen days the losses from
all were substantially uniform.
Another experiment included ap
plying water to the soil at the sur
face and in furrows 3, 6, 9, and 12
inches deep, all soils being cuiivated
on the third day after irrigation be
gan. The experiment covered ten
days, and at the end of that time the
losses were: From the surface irri
gated soil, 24 per rent of the watet
applied; from soil irrigated in furrows
3 inches deep, 21 per cent; in 6 inch
furrows, 17 per cent; in 9 inch fur
rows, 15 per cent; and in 12 inch
furrows, 12 per cent, the loss in the
last case being half that in tha first.
These experiments relates espeial
ly to the irrigation of orchards,
where it is possible to apply the
water at considerable depths and to
cultivate the soil to depth ot 10 or 12
inches without injury to the trees.
Naturally these methods can not be
used in the irrigation of grain and
hay, where the water must be appli
at or near tne sunace, nor on crops
whose root systems are near the
surface, so that deep cultivation can
uot be practiced. They show, tow
ever, that wbero water can be
applied in deep furrows, and where
irrigation can be followed by deep
and thoroug cultivation, half the
water ordinarily lost by evaporation
can be saved, and that this equals 10
to 20 per cent of the water applied,
making possible an extension of, say,
15 per cent in the area irrigated with
a given supply of water. In other
words, if land has been receiving a
depth of 2 feet of water under the
old system, it need receive only 20
inches under the new system, or a
stream which has irrigated 100 acres
can be made to serve 115 acres.

of additional information on evapora
tion from soils and water

The Legislature of 1907 is no a
matter of history, and it can bo re
corded as the best since annexation.
There have been over one hundred
bills signed by the Governor, which
has relieved the pressure of the last
few days, when it has been customary
to rush in about one hundred bills
with the expectation that they will
be carefully examined.

GENERAL BLACKSMITHING MORSB SHOEING.
1 Alain St. near Market,
It has been a hard session through
out, hard upon the members and
ard upon the clerical force. It is
believed that better legislation has
been enacted because the work has
been done steadily und with regular
ity, each day seeing clear desks. In
the matter of expenses, U13 $30,000
appropriated by Congress for the
Legislature, has saved fully $60,000
to the Territory; because the mem
bers consequently, kept their expf nse
bills as low as possible.
Unlike the last session, there has
been little friction between the Gov
ernor ami Hie members, liie execu
tive evidently has acquired wisdom
within the last two years, adopting s
more conciliatory policy, and giving
heed to the rights of the representa
tives of the people. The past week
has seen a little trouble between the
Senate and House; but not of a ser

Committee on appropriations was

Adjournment was taken when the
salaiv for commissioner of immira
tion was reached. The present law
provides that a salary must be pro
vided and two years ago, it was fixed
at $25 a month. This time the amount
asked for was $200 a month, so that
a man can be appointed who will give
his whole time to the work, and iuau
gurating an active policy under gov
ernment control there was danger of
the salary being again tired at $25,
and'a sudden adjournment was made
in order to prevent tlii.-. The oppon
ents of the increase were Senators
Kalama and Knudsen, Representa
lives Rice, Hughes, Pali and Kalei
opu. mere was much surprise over
the actiou of Hughes, who has claim
ed always to favor active iminigra
ton work. Senator Woods support
ed the large appropriation, and act
ed with Senator Dovvsett for sudden
adjournment so that the friends of
immigration would have a chance to
work upon the malcontents.
Were it not for the very large ap
propriations that are at the disposal
of the Health Department and the
Department of Education, both
boards would have been wiped out of
existence before the session closed.
As it was members were a little
afraid to leave the 000,000 voted for
health purposes, or the 800,000
voted for educational purposes iu the
hands of any one man. A bill was
introduced in the House to extinguish
the Board of Education. The action
taken by the Board of Health, in ex
eluding Lor Waliaeh from tliu settle
... . . 1
ment of Aiolokai, aroused the mem
bers more than any thing else that
has occurred during the whole, ses
sion. It is a little doubtful perhaps,
whether under section 80 of the Or
game act, the present members of
the board could be removed even
the Governor were willing that they
should be, because they are appoint
ed for four years. The few days show
ed a heated debate on the subject of
the Board of Health, Lor Wallach,
leprosy and every other plague to
which flesh is heir.
