inview of the fact that the reclamation^of our arid laud* for settlers is a topic up^per nost at this time in the minds of the^people of Montana, the following corre*^pondence, which was received yesterday^by Governor White from the Interior de^^partment, will be of general iuteresL Fears^that monopolists may grab the public lands^when surveyed, as they are seeking to do^in Idaho, are entertained in Montana also,^and it is in an effort to avert this wrong^that Governor Thorp, of Idaho, at the re^^port of the constitutional convention sent^the following resolutions to Secretary^Noble, adopted by the convention:
BoiseCity. Idaho, Aug. 3, 1H89 ^Secre^^tary of the Interior, Washington, I). C.:^^The constitution convention adopted the^following to-day:
Whereas,The government of the^United States has taken steps towards^redeeming the arid laLds of the west; and^whereas, for the purpose of establishing a^thorough system of storage reservoir-, ca^^nals and irrigating ditches, engineering^parties are making surveys for this pur^^pose ; and
Whereas,It is learned that the plans of^the government are threatened to be^thwarted by speculators having men to^follow up these surveys to make filings on^laDds, reservoirs and canal locations; and
Whereas,It is learned that one corpora^^tion is seeking to seize and control Bear^Lake, together with large bodies of land^adjoining its shore lines, with the intention^ot making that lake a great storage basin :^and
Whereas,The same corporation is seek^^ing to control the waters of Bear Lake, to^^gether with all the waters of Bear river,^wtth the tributaries thereof and gulches^for a distauce ot about 150 miles in Idaho^with a view ot monopolizing all these wa^^ters to their own uses, one purpose of^which is that they may dispose ot a very^large portion thereof within the leiritory^of I 'tali, greatly to the injury of Idaho and^against the interest of her people,
Therefore,Be it Resolved, That it was^not contemplated, by the government or^the territory of Idaho, that any such mon^^opolizing of the lands and waters of ldauo^should be permitted.
Resolved,That steps should be taken at^once to prevent such seizure of reservoir^and canal locations and the same be pre^^served tor the pe^ pie.
QKesolvedtbatBear lake should be retained^for a public storage reservoir and the lands
iiumeuiatelyadjoining the lakr should be^withdrawn from market to and in carrying
Keaolveii, by the Idaho constitutional con^^vention now assembled at the capital of^said territory having the good of the gen^^eral public and the welfare of the people of^Idaho with prosperity of the territory at^heart do hereby memorialize the depart^^ment ot the interior to take such action at^once as will remedy the evils which^threaten this fair territory in the manner^outlined in this memorial.
Kesolvedthat the memorial be spread^upon the journal of this oonvention and a^certified enrolled copy thereof be forwarded^by the governor to the secretary of the in^^terior.G. L. Shoup, governor.
Towhich Secretary Noble replied: I^have just received the resolution adopted^by the constitutional convention transmit^^ted by you to me through telegram. A full^reply to this question, 1 think, is found in^the following provisions of the Appropria^^tion act os October 2. 1HHH, which reads as^follows:
Forthe purpose of investigating the ex^^tent to which the arid region of the United^States can be redeemed by irrigation, and^the segregation of the irrigable lands in^such arid region, and for the selection of^sites for reservoirs and other hydraulic^works necessary tor the storage and utili^^zation of water lor irrigation and the pre^vention of floods and overflows, and to^make the necessary maps, including the^pay of employes in field and in office, the^cost of all instruments, apparatus and ma^^terials, and all other necessary expenses^connected therewith, the work to^be performed by the geological I _-_.:_^^survey, under the direction of the 1^secretary cf the interior, the sum of one |^hundred thousand dollars or so much there- i^of as may be necessary. And the director^of the Geological survey under Ihe super- !^vision of the secretary of the interior, i^shall make a report to congress on the first^Monday in Decern ^-r of each year, show^^ing in detail bow the said money has been '^expended, the amount used for actual sur-^vey and engineer work in the held in lo- I^eating sites for reservoirs and an itemized^account of the expenditures under this ap-^propriation. And all trie lands which may ]^hereafter be designated or selected by such i^United States surveys for sites for reser. I^voirs. ditches or canals for irrigation pur- ,^poses, and all the lansls made susceptible I^of irrigation by sucq reservoirs, ditches or^canals are from this time henceforth here^^by reserved from sale as the property of^tbe United Stater, and shall not be subject^after the passage of this act. to entry, set^^tlement or occupation until further provid^^ed by law.
Provided.^That the president may at^any time in bis discretion by proclamation^open any portion or all of the lands re^^served by this provision to settlament un^^der tbe homestead laws.
Thisis the law of to-d'y. unreversed,^unrepealed and in full force. You perceive^its vast extent and tbe Immense conse^queuces that will follow therefrom in the I^a rection that sour resolution point* !^un'eas there be further action in regard j^thereto by congress. it follows necessarily^tha the speculators, corporations or other^persons referred to in the resolution are^under the effect of this law and unable to^obtain the advantages that you say they^are seeking- Unless the law Is repealed or^the president opens tbe lands to settlement^under the homestead laws the government^must have and will take eventually abso^^lute control of every acre of arid land that^may be redeemed by the system of reser^^voirs, canals and ditches a* provided in the^appropriation net mentioned. The sub^^sequent appropriation act has not affected^the above provision.
This1 think is a full solution of tbe^whole trouble between the territory of
statuteyou observe res ^ires these lands^from the date thereof, and tbe assistant^attorney general of this department^agrees with me that is con^^stitutional and effective to the^extent expressed. 1 fully appreciate the^conflict of rights that must arise between^territories and between territories and^states, but t'jese all can and will be better^regulated by national control than local^conflicts and contradictory legislation. 1^fear that the statute to which I have re^^ferred is not known to the western terri^^tories to the extent, at least, that it ought^to be, and I will have your dispatch and^this published to day in full
Johnw. Nobu, Secretary.
