I PROPOSED IRRIGATION DISTRICT.
Having called on those vriio are directing the affairs of the pro
Dosed local irrigation district to explain certain phases of the plans
1 J )f organization, The Standard-Examiner has received from the coun
, ;y agricultural agent the following reply :
trAs per your request, we are submitting herewith some infor
mation on the proposed irrigation district for "Weber county. The
two statements attached, on water allotment gives you an idea of
qow simple it is to have adjustments made on allotments. Our of
k Eicc has supplied this information to the land owner as an accom
1 adation the law does not require that he should be notified other
man by the legal notice which appears in the local press. The land
Dwner does not obligate himself in any v?ay by signing allotment
"If adjustments on water allotment are not made to suit the
i individual land owner, it will be because he does not take advantage
?f the opportunit' of meeting our engineer at his home town to se
cure information and make adjustments, or else he desires to be
eliminated or have the amount of water reduced much below that
! aeeded to properly irrigate his land, thinking that he will receive

il "On the matter of power development, there is,, in my opinion,
p rery little to be said other than that the district proposes to build
! reservoirs, first to supply additional water; second, by building power
J plants or entering into a contract with other concerns, to develop
'J pewer to be used in the pumping of water to irrigate certain lands
1 )f the district. The irrigation district law provides that the district
m may develop power for such purposes, or contract wth other agen-
Ij ;ies for same. The section of the law covering this point is attached
Df hereto :

I quired or developed in connection with an irrigation sys-

1 Satisfactory adjustments on water allotments are being made
I throughout the country. W. W. McLaughlin has spent a day each
I Huntsville, . Eden, Farr West, Marriott and Wilson in assisting
land owners m determining the exact-amount of water they need
1 for their lands. At each town a local committee was on hand to as-
sist jIr. IcLaughlin and to receive allotment cards after changes
had been made. The committees will make recommendations and
I! present requests of each land owner to county commissioners on a
iate set for hearings. Ninety per cent of allotment cards from towns
dsited are in hands of local committeemen and 99 per cent have had
0 adjustments made to the satisfaction' of .the owner and local com-
tnittee. " ... 1
I The local committee and engineer will meet farmers in towns as
I Tuesday, April 27, 9 a. -m., North Ogden, at meeting house

i The local committee from each town will present reauests from

I- . . VUIUWE uu U1S locai iown; also should meet the county
i commissioners on the date set for his locality to appear. Plenty of
I iime will be provided to make all necessary adjustments.
i Strong sentiment in favor of the district was expressed at meet-
mgs held during last week at Huntsville, Eden, Harrisville Farr
Jest, Pleasant View, Marriott, Wilson, Slaterville, Riverdale
h Hooper, Taylor and North Ogden. At the latter town a motion was
passed 100 per cent strong as backing the district movement. This
expression was manifest after a full discussion on purposes of the
listnct and on what would happen if no bedrock could be secured
'or reservoirs or if reservoirs should break,

HOUSES ARE HOUSES.
The town Is shortot dwellings of
small or larger size, and so wo hear the
yellings ot heartsick homeless guys;
they hustle, helter-skelter, to ny to
rent a shelter of some harJ-hcarted
poller, unmoved by all their cries. Jt's
hard to ralso the ante, for any com
mon gent; for he could build a shanty
with what he pays in rem: but there's
no Uillder willing to lake his hard
earned shilling and help him make a
killing, and hence his loud lament. I
zee ?ho homeless hiking around mo ev
erywhere; their bosoms they are strik
ing, and taarlnc of their hair; men
flaunt their rolls of kronors, and ciy,
"Rent up a shack, or we are simply
goners, alas, and eke alac'c. Our kinds
and wives are weeping, for they must
do iheir sleeping In barns whera rain
is seeping through every beastly crack.
Our uncles and our grannies in corn
cribs sit and 3fch, whllo through the
open crannies the winds go whizzing
by; then rent to us, my master, a
house with lath and plaster, or there
will bo disaster, and fireworks popping
h'Ph." In vain there arc no houses
that they can rent or hire, which grcw
soino fact reminds my sturu patrician
in.-; that ncn who have tin plunder
can't rest, a rooftreo under, fills me
vI'h wrath and wonder, the while. I
kick my lyre.
