MONEY MAY BE WASTED.
Arid Land Reclaimed Only for
Short Time, Says Expert.
That the millions of dollars spent by
the United States government for tha
reclamation of arid land In the United
States, may be to a large extent wasted,
was the statement of Dr. B. T. Gallo
way, chief of the Bureau of Plant In
dustry of the Department of Agriculture,
before the Moss Investigating committee
of tbe House. Dr. Galloway's statement
appeared in testimony given out by tha
"I will even go so far as to say," said
Dr. Galloway, "that so far as I know,
there hasrnever been long continued suc
cessful Irrigation agriculture In a semi
arid climate anywhere, in the world."
Dr. Galloway said the result of irrigat
ing arid lands was to take from it alt
its agricultural virtues after a few years
of use and. in addition, the water used
for irrigation purposes, carried alkali
into land where irrigation was not
needed for agricultural purposes and the.
alkali destroyed the agricultural virtue
of these lands. The result was a double
process of destruction. .
Labor Bill Abandaned.
Labor members of the House privately
admitted yesterday that they have about
given up hope of the Senate passing the
Department of Labor bill, to which
measure tbe Democratic party is special
ly pledged in Its last national platform.
The bill passed the House at the last
session, and It was expected that the
Senate would pass the bill, so. that
President-elect Wilson would have an
additional member In his Cabinet.
