mittee on Irrieraion nnrl rprlnmntion Of
arid lands after a second readings It
was reported bj- senator Carter with
amendments on February 14, and was
passed during- the morning' session of the
History of the Ulovement.
The history of the movement which
culminated in the passage of the Carter
bill, began last summer shortly before
I the Spokane Irrigation congress. It
was derided to send a special delegation
from El Paso to the Spokane congress
and also to meet secretary Ballinger, who
was to bi? there during the .congress. Tne
sentiment of the irrigation congress was
unanimously in favor of the completion
of the projects under the reclamation
service control and a resolution favor
ing the Issuance of $100,000,000 worth of
bonds was passed by the congress. The
visit of the El Paso delegation, headed
by Felix Martinez. J. a. Smith. Richard
Burges and other men prominently con
nected with the history of the Elephant
Butte project, was even more success
ful. The committee which called on the
secretary was cordially received and Mr.
Ballinger promptly assured the repre
sentatives of the Rio Grande project of
his unqualified support and promised
io do all he could to protect all of the
reclamation service projects.
Acting on his word, secretary Bal
linger took the matter up with the
president upon his return to "Washing
ton and the urging of the senate irriga
tion committee to investigate the recla
mation situation at first hand was taken
up by president Tart with senator
JThomas H. Carter, of Nevada, the chair
man. Aftter visiting the projects in the
northwest and California, the committee
from the senate came to Arizona, vis
ited the great Roosevelt dam, saw the
Laguna project at Yuma and then came
to El Paso. The three senators who in
spected the Elephant Butte project were
senators Carter, of Montana; Francis -
Warren, of Wyoming; and Wesley L.
Jones, of "Washington. They arrived
here on special train on November 1,
spent the day In visiting the valley, the
Mexican side of the river and in asking
questions about the Elephant Butte
project at a mass meeting at the cham
ber of commerce. Leaving on their spe
cial earlj' the following morning the
senatorial party visited Las Craces arid
the upper valley, including ithe site of
the Elephant Butte project and from
there went to Roswell and the Pecos val
ley projects. While here, senator Car
ter as chairman of the committee, prom
ised that he and his colleagues would
introduce a bill calling for either a spe
cial appropriation for the immediate
completion of the Elephant Butte pro
ject or a general one to cover all the
projects approved or under way.

The figures headed "Approved portion" are the amounts which should be
added to the expenditures made in 1909, plus the allotments for 1910.
The figures head.id "Extensions" are approximate amounts.
South side only, and not including Jackson Lake storage.
Including Kittitas and Benton unite.
The -average annual receipts into the
reclamation fund from 1901 to 190S, in
clusive, were $7,237,364; the estimated
receipts for 1909 are $7.771.S09; the es
timated receipts for 1910 are $7,293,000.
Assuming that that the receipts from
the sale of public lands, and from re- j the Elephant Butte project, wnich, by
payment of building charges will aver- j special recommendation of the coimnit
age $7,000,000 .per year in future, an tee was placed at the head of the list
additional annual appropriation of $7,- j of projects to "be covered by the Carter
000,000 under a bond issue or other- j Dni;
wise, making $14,000,000 per annum j
available, would permit of the comple
tion of the approved portion of the
projects named, in the foregoing table
in a little over two years.
The director and chief engineer of
the reclamation service advise me that
this amount could be economically and
wiselj expended. They also advise me
that, upon continuance of the same an
rnal addition to the fund, the exten
sions described would be completed in
four years more.
The table headed "Approved portion,"
covering an "estimated expenditure of
$30,138,000. represents the projects, or
portions of projects, approved by my
predecessors and myself. The table
headed "Extensions," covering an esti
mated expenditure of $55,786,000, has
not been approved by me; and it is
possible that, in working out the mat
ter when the, work is actually reached,
the amount could be decreased by the
elimination of some of the proposed ex
tentions. As recommended in my annual report
to the president, I am heartily in favor
of an early completion of existing pro- l
jects, and of prudent extensions, where 1
zsuuii cvteiisiuus appear necessary to re-
claim arid public lands, and to utilize !
water supplies created in connection j
with approved projects. The early com-
such extensions appear necessary to re
pietion or these projects will I
result not only in meeting the wishes
of settlers and prospective settlers upon
the lands, but secure an early return
to the treasury of the moneys expended
In the construction of the reclamation
works. It is evident that the sooner
the projpects are completed and the
water available, the larger wtll be the
returns to the fund and the greater the
contribution to the nation's food sup
ply from the products of those hereto
fore barren lands.
The present receipts in the fund are
not sufficient to enable this department
to conduct the construction of these
works to the best advantage, as it is
hampered by the insufficiency of mon
eys to carry forward the construction
on many of the projects already ap
proved. I am of thf ooinion thnt fha
j suggestion that congress authorize the
issuance of certificates of indebted
ness or bonds against the reclamation
fund, 'to an aggregate of not exceed
ing $30,000,000, or so much thereof as
may be needed," would, if enacted into
law, enable me to complete within a
little over two years the approved por
tions of existing projects, and make the
more necessary extensions. The other
extensions could be left for future con
sideration. R. A. Ballinger, Secretary.
Hon. Thomas H. Carter, chairman
committee on Irrigation and Melcama-
consulted with the president and it was
decided to have the bill take the form
of a general one for the appropriation
of $30,000,000 for the completion of such
projects as had been approved by the
secretary of the interior. This was
drafted into the Carter bill and as such
passed the senate Tuesday morning.
This bill was one of the first on the
senatorial calendar to pass, which shows
the activity of senators Carter. Warren
and Jones, and congressman W. R.
To this group of men, another should
be added. He is Felix Martinez, secre
tary of the Water Lsers' association and
i chairman of the executive committee.
Through his office practically all the
correspondence regarding the project
has passed. Mr. Afartinez kept in the
closest possible touch with congressman
Smith, "the man on the job," who has
been amply protecting the interests of
his people." Telegrams and letters have
been sent and received by the secretary
of the Water Users' association. It was
his inspiration that the first step in the
i securing the appropriation was taken.
It was at his suggestion and upon his
aoDeal that a delegation was sent to
Spokane. He has worked as faithfully as
has El Paso's congressman ror tne cause
of the Elephant Butte project and Is
still working for the same cause, the
cause of El Paso and the Rio Grande
Money for All Projects.
Richard F. Burges, another tireless
worker in the cause of the Elephant
Butte project, said today: "When the
bill is approved by the president, my
opinion Is that as shown by the letter
of the secretary of the interior of De
cember 31, 1909, there will be money
available to complete and pay for every
project heretofore approved by the sec
retary of the Interior, including the al
lotment of $S,790,000 for the Rio Grande
project. There would then be no rea
son why the project should not be car
ried to completion as rapidly as the
magnitude of the labor involved will
The letter of secretary of the interior
Ballinger to the president, referred to

The Rio Grande valley is widely
known for the diversity of its products,
its fertile soil, and favorable climate.
Lands now irrigated by present canals,
which as a rule have an insufficient
supply, sell for $75 to $300 per acre. An
abundant water supply is guaranteaa
by the enormous reservoir behind the

the largest artificial budies of water 1

A conservative estimate would place j
the value of the lands in this projec:
in the United States when irrigated at
not less than $15,500,000, which is the
security for an investment of $8,000,000
from the reclamation fund. f
