interesting Convention is
Held at Pecos The Next
Session in April at Fort
Pecos, Texas, Jan. 29. Forty dele
gates from over the state responded to
the call for a meeting of the irrigation
interests of the state, at Pecos, and or
ganized the Texas Irrigation congress.
Because of the lack of laws applying
to certain conditions affecting irriga
tion interests that have presented them
selves, and in the desire to protect not
only the interests of the irrigation com
panies, but the consumer as well, tin
the event of division of opinion as
to their rights, considerable time was
devoted to this subject.
"Want L.niT.s Revised.
The Question of legislative action or
constitutional amendment defining ri
parian rights .and ownership of water,
together with a plan for the division
thereof in case of conflicting claims
was presented and thoroughly discuss

revision of such irrigation laws as are
now effective, and the enactment of
just and equitable legislation, that will

insure to the irrigation enterprises of
the state the greatest stablity and cer
tainty of water supply, thereby furnish
ing the greatest security for the invest
ment of capital in their development.
The meeting also declared in favor
of the enactment of a code of irrigation
laws, that will fully safeguard and
protect the users of water and define
the right and obligation of the enter
prises to deliver the water to them
and to encourage cooperation between
the canal companies and the consumer.
It was also the sense of the con
ference that there be created by the
legislature of the state an irrigation
commission, acting under the direction
of, and in conjunction with, the depart
ment of agriculture.
The committee- on permanent organi
zation and constitution and bylaws ask
ed for time until the next meeting for
the preparation of the constitution and
bylaws, believing there should be a
great deal of thought given and care
exercised in preparing this foundation
upon which shall be built a factor of
S power in the development of the state.
Upon the consideration or tne terri
tory to be embraced by this congress,
It was the unanimous judgment of the
delegates from over the state that, in
the absence of a state organization, and
because of the interests affected being
state wide, this should be organized as
the Texas Irrigation congress, with
a request that all local organizations
having the promotion of -irrigation in
terests as their object, Identify them
selves with it.
The committee on permanent organ
ization reported the following officers
for the ensuing year:
President M. ii Swinehart, of Pecos
Vice president Maj. Jno. TVilsdn, of
Vice president William F. Hume, of
Vice president S. D. Pugh, of Arno.
Secretary treasurer J. G. Love, of Pe
cos City. -
Chairman executive committee A. Z.
Monell, of Grand Falls.
Chairman publicity committee U. S.
Pawkett, of Pecos City.
These were elected and the chairmen
of the committees instructed that they
were to select the members of their
respective committees, after conferring
with the president, from various parts
of the state.
Upon the decision of the congress
to meet at Fort Worth, April 5 and 6,
1910, it was decided o limit the com
mittees of five members each, with the
understanding that at that meeting, and
upon the adoption ot the constitution
and bylaws, the permanent committees
should be elected, perhaps two from
each congressional district.
The membersHrp fee, to charter mem
bers, open until the adoption of the
constitution and bylaws at Fort Worth,
was fixed at $5, payable annually.
The date of the annual meeting was
fixed on the first Tuesday of Septem
ber, and San Antonio was selected as
the place for holding that meeting.
At the suggestion of John S. Kerr,
secretary of "the Conservation Associa
tion of Texas, and realizing the value
and assistance" each organization could
be to the other, It was decided that the
next meeting of the congress should be
at Fort Worth, April 5 and 6, the same
date for the meeting of the Conserva
Some Irrigation Needs.
A. Z. Monell, general manager of the
Grand Falls Irrigation company, pre
sented the subject, "The Harmonizing
of the Interests of Irrigation Com
panies." The speaker made it plain
that, because of the rapid development
j being made In irrigation work, and the
appropriation of the water avanaDie ior
such use, that the cooperation and har
mony of action of all irrigation inter
ests -was Imperative.
In discussion of the topic, "The Need
of Uniform Laws Touching Irrigation,"
S. D. Pugh, president of the Arno Co
operative Irrigation company, stated
the lack of laws fixing the riparian
rights and ownership of water in Texas
for irrigation purposes, and urged that
the matter be presented to the proper
authorities, looking to the enactment
of such laws as will protect the water
companies and the consumer alike.
E. D. Balcom, general manager of
(the Toyah Valley Irrigation company
an irrlgationist of 15 years experience,
gave an Instructive talk on the "Use
and Abuse of Water in Irrigating."
S. V. Biggs, president of the Biggs
Irrigation company, spoke on the
"Conservation of Flood Waters." It was
shown that in the past practically no
attention had been given to this work,
but as the available of streams, creeks
and springs are appropriated the next
move to prevent the great waste of
"water will be the conservation of storm
The aims and purposes of the Conser
vation Association of Texas were pre
sented and explained by John S. Kerr,
secretary, and Will Ij. Sargeant, mem
ber of the executive committee of that
The resolutions were as follows:
Whereas the Texas Irrigation con
gress has assumed its purpose to be to
unite every section of Texas in the pro
motion and perpetuation of successful
Irrigation systems and legislation that
will enrich every part of Texas alike, re
solved: 1. That the purpose and scope of this
congress is the encouragement of the
conservation, storage and equitable di
vision and distribution of its natural
and flood waters, of streams, artesian
wells, springs, rainfall and other sources
of water supply, the promotion and pro
cureuce of just and equitable legislation
as will serve such purpose and insure
to irrigation enterprise In this state the
greatest security for the Investment of
capital in their development, and the
enactment of a code of irrigation law
such as will at the same time fully safe
guard and protect the -users of water and
define the right and obligation of the
enterprises delivering the water to them
and to encourage cooperation between
2. That the congress Invites the co
operation of all other associations which
have as their purpose me wuscnttuuii
of natural resources for the develop
ment or reclamation of arid and other
lands of the state of Texas in the sup
port of -the work of this congress.
3. That we insist upon such a revision
of our irrigation laws as will secure not
alone the aid of the state in its reclama
tion enterprises but such as will encour
age the building of reservoirs and the
construction of canals by both home and
foreign capital. '
4. That we encourage the investment
of capital in our midst in the construc
tion of irrigation systems and their suc
cessful operation by securing unto such
capital every protection guaranteed un
der a constitution which declares that
taxation shall be uniform and equal and
that we use our utmost endeavors to
