The ii'i-iifotorg' Convention.
A full attendance was present yes
terday at the opening. The assembly
was caliod to order by Geo. H. Peek,
who stated the object of the meeting,
tn memorialize the legislature to pass
laws to save and distribute the water.
General Stoneinun was made Chair
man, and spoke a few brief sentences.
He said he came to bear practical sug
gestions from practical men from all
parts of the county. The question
before the Convention was the most
Inportunt, in which all are Interested.
The sooner it is settled the better for
all concerned, for the settlement must
obviate differences and difficulties in
future. Th# longer it is postponed the
greater the acrimony and the greater
the number of neighborhood quarrels.

resolutions, which were considered.
WiiF.itr.vs, In our rivers and moun
tain lakes, (nan is a large amount of
water »>t utilized which, if properly
develop,,!, Would irrigate a large area,
and thus enhance the taxable value of
our agricultural lands; and, whereas,
Our mountains are pierced with nu
merous and convenient canons, which
it is believed may be dammed and
used for reservoirs, and the river
streams which sink, may lie saved by
submerged dams or stone-lined ditch
es made into river-beds and Mowing
thence into reservoirs, and from
thence distributed over a large terito
ry; and, whereas, The existing agri
cultural, riparian aud common land
water-rights have been, are, and
must continue to be violently antago
nistic, and provocative of constant
litigations, personal and neighbor
hood quarrels, all of which must be
exaggerated and aggravated with an
increased population; and, whereas,
The public are prevented from using a
large portion of their own water by
pretended claims of individuals, which
is against public interest, the spirit of
our institutions, and not to be tolera
ted; and, Whereas, The individual
policy has never been, nor can ever
be able to properly manage this great
question which is of State.
Section 1. —That it is the positive
duty of the State of California to pos
sess and control all the water in the
State, which may be used for irriga
tion, except springs rising on private
lands, without delay: and where ow
nership of water is exercised to the
public detriment, except in the case
of springs rising on private lands, to
provide for denouncing and paying an
equitable value for the same if not of

18711, to consider means for developing
and distributing tlie water of Los An

witli the view of furnishing a basis for
legislation during the coming winter,
BBC. I.—That it is the duty of the
State to supply able engineers to make
a thorough examination of our rivers,
canons, etc., and report as to the fea
sibility of introducing the water sup
ply and of storing the same in reser
voirs for future use.
Sec. i—lt is the duty id' the State to
create a new department of govern*
ment to take cognizance of all matters
pertaining to water development, and
irrigation. Said department to con
1. A State superintendent who shall
be assisted by an Advisary Board of
Engineers of civilians.
2. One superintendent for each coun
ty where irrigation is practiced.
3. Three commissioners for eaeli
water district. The detaiis of which
are left to the legislature.
Sec. 2. Lands irrigable by one
stream and its tributaries, to consti
tute not more than two districts, and
when practicable not more than one.
Sec. a. Water to be sold 111 all
cases, but irrigators to be priveleged
to buy in proportion to the acres to be
cultivated in that water year.
Skc. 4. Irrigation head to be de
fined In inches.
Sec. 5. Present water laws to be
Resolved, That properly existing
water rights, in the contemplated
change, should lie respected.
Resolved, That tbe attention of his
Excellency the Governor, is especially
called to urge upon the legislature the
appointment of a special commission
with power to visit all parts of the
State to examine into the above quest
ions and to report at the present ses
sion of the legislature at the earliest
Resolved, That the advancement of
the State ol* California in civilization
and national prosperity, will greatly
depend upon a proper system of water
Resolved, That a copy of the above
lie furnished his Excellency the Gov
ernor, and the Honorable Members of
the Assembly, and the Honruble Sen
ators, with the request that they will
urge legislation as above desired.
On the first resolution considerable
discussion took place. Mr. Workman
thought it would conflict with the
rights of Los Angeles; and with
rights in water which had become
vested. He was in favor of extend
ing irrigation as far as possible.
But Governor Downey in reply said
the State already controlled the city
iv its distribution, und that was all
the law desired would control.
Mr. Grandon was in favor of legis
tlon, but the convention ought to
move slowly. There are few men capa
ble of framing a law that would act
advantageously iv all cases. In many
cases there is not water for all, and
wherever there is not water for all.
it is folly to divide it, and make it
valueless. To give it to the State,
he thought was the next thing to di
Secretary Peck said the section did
not speak of distribution; but indivi
duals can not handle water properly,
and this resolution puts the business
into the hands of the State.
Mr. Venuble thought there was a
latent meaning, which went further
than this. The State already prescribes
how individuals shall possess water.
This latent meaning is to take away
rights already granted. Secretary
Peck denied the latent meaning. In
Spain everybody wanted water, and
many individuals had possession of
it. The State found that to have the
water property administered, it must
have control, Rut it was too late, it
could not get it. Now California can
get hold of -it, and she ought to get
hold of it.
Governor Downey Bald that under
the existing State laws, water becomes
property by possession, and the filing
the claim. ' Ihe owner can sell water
at an Immense figure. This is what
this law will obviate. He thought
the Legislators could not take away
from a inaii a right to water, which he
lias now in possession; hut the State
may pass laws to economize and uti
lize. No man should act the dog.
Until the State possesses a general
law, there will l»e no equality in the
distribution of water.
Mr. Venable agreed with Gov. Dow
ney that more stringent laws were
needed. Where once ten men thought
they had no water to spare, now one
hundred men have water and to spare.
They have found that those who had
the least water had the largest crops.
We had over-valued the use of much
water. With this understanding, he
was in favor of the resolution.
Mr. Higbie said there was an idea
with some that taking the water inter
feres with the rights of others. The
government now owns the water and
should distribute it as it seems best.
If properly and evenly appropriated,
it could furnish ail In some places
they wait until the middle of May
and then all go for the water, instead
of taking water earlier. Thus there is
a lack, which under better regulation
would be supplied.
Mr. Olden thought if any law was
made, it should be made to operate on
each water district separately. Flor
ence, for instance, could get all the
water it needs from wells, and should
not be taxed to supply others. He had
no faith in government encourage
ment. The way should he for every
district to form joint stock companies.
The public canals in Pennsylvania, for
instance, cost three times what they
should, and after they were built they
did not pay expenses. They were sold
to private parties, after which they
were a great source of profit. This is
the difference between public ami pri
General Stoneman believed in the
greatest good to the greatest number,
and that the ends justifies the means,
if the means are equal. He believed
the State had the right to control the
mainstay of all its citizens. The reso
lutions contemplate no details. These
arc left to the legislature. It may in
corporate a company or in any other
way economize water, but it must
Mr. Grandon said the way the water
business had been managed was a
grab game, but he did not wish to
nave it kept up. He only wished to
prevent division, when this would be
injurious. The system of State irri
gation is expensive. One who irri
gates a hundred acres would hardly
get enough off it to pay for the Mater
under this system. The State can
pass a law regulating water, hut it
can't pass one regulating the time
when a man shall use his water.
The question was called on the reso
lution, and carried. The next three
were passed without debate, and the
balance referred to a committee con
sisting of Gov. Downey, Messrs. Gor
don, Howard, Workman, and Olden,
when the convention adjourned until
2 P. M.
The Committee on Resolutions re
ported, and their reported was adopted.
Mr. Venable thought that the appli
cation of power to machinery had been
overtoiled In this discussion and reso
tions, and that fuller and quicker pow
ers to condemn lands for canals, etc.,
should be acquired.
Dr. Howard moved that a system of
irrigation and taxation be devised by
which land brought under irrigation
should pay the major part of the ex
pense of the same. He proposed the
extra taxes, arising from the increased
valuation, be devoted to this purpose,
aud that the county or State guaran
tee the bonds of a company proposing
to irrigate, said bonds to be paid by
the increased taxation. This was em
bodied in the form of a resolution, and
Mr. Higbie said the question of
waste water would come up before
the convention and he desired instruc
Gen. Running thought that an ar
bitrary law ought to be passed enabl
ing any one to take and use water go
ing to waste wherever it could be

Resolved, That a committee of five,
Gen. Howard, (fen. McConnell, and
Col. Smith, with the members of the
legislature, and Mr. Peck as Secretary,

actment to control water in Los An
Gov. Downey, the temporary Presi
dent, closed the assembly with a few
remarks about the great importance
of the meeting. The adjournment is
subject to the call of the Chairman of
A full house was at the Merced last
night at the benefit of Miss Salina
Abbott. The play was the affecting
drama of Enoch Arden. Of course
every one knows the story. Mr.
Piercy took Enoch Arden, and Mad
ame Duret was Annie Lee. Rare
ly has the play been better per
formed In these two prominent parts
than last night. Enoch in his sorrows
and trouble was to the life, and his
performance was applauded to the
echo. The only criticism that could
could be passed upon him is this. His
part was not committed, and his acting
was a little overdone. As is wont to
lie the case, Madame Duret, in word
and act was well fitted for the part she
assumed. The general idea of Annie
Lee is that of a small, delicate young
woman, while the Madame is large,
and older. The support was reason
ably good. Miss Lipsis made a very
good Dame Lane.
On Wednesday, October 20th, will
be played Othello, for the benefit of
Fred. Feuton. People are getting to
understand fully the merit of this
company, and are giving them a gen
erous support. No doubt on this occa
sion they will respond in erowtls.
