SALT RIB MLLEV FARMERS III
801 MTU RECLAME ME1
Officials Raise Rate and Say Two Acre Feet of Water Is
Sufficient to Irrigate Crops Farmers Deny It
and Claim the Extra Charge Is Made to
Take Care of Extravagance.
By George H. Clements.
Phoenix. Ariz., Oct 3. There is a life
sized row on between the United States
reclamation service, as represented in
the Roosevelt project, and the water
users of the Salt River valley under
that project which it may be profitable
for the water users under the Elephant
Butte project to look into in order that
they may forestall a similar row when
Elephant Butte water becomes avail
able for use In the llesilla and El Paso
When the Roosevelt dam was pro
jected It was figured out that all the
water that a farmer cared to use, up
to five acre feet per year, could be
furnished for a flat rate of SI 60 per
acre, and water was furnished at that
rate during 1911 and for the year end
ing October 1, 1912.
Claim Rate la Prohibitive.
During the, summer, however, the
reclamation service gave notice to
water users that no more contracts at
the old rate would be made and pro
mulgated a new rate which made the
use of five acre feet cost J 4.85 per
acre a tost that the water users
deemed prohibitive. They called a
meeting of protest, but the local offi
cers of the service were obdurate, say
ing that their instructions came from
the reclamation office in Washington
They said that it had been determined
that the farmers were using too much
water with the result that thousands
of acres of land were being ruined
irretrievably and that it was to pre
vent this overuse and therefore worse
than waste of water that the new rate
was being imposed. They held that
two acre feet of water per year if
judiciously used, was ample for a soil
such as prevails throughout this val
The water users resented the impu
tation that they were wasting water
or spoiling land, and held that if they
never prove a menace to the stability
of the big dam.
Find Fault With Road.
The magnificent road built by the
government from ilesa to the dam is
coming in for much criticism from
those who feel that the builders of the
dam must be found fault with. The
road, which is cut in solid rock for
many miles did cost an enormous sum
something like $250,000, but experts
say it was worth every dollar It cost
and then some. Recently, however, the
road was temporarily put out of com
mission by a slide of rock, something
raat could not have been .foreseen nor
prevented, but it served as a tip for
the faultfinders to renew their fault
finding with the reclamation service.
The slide was cleared away within a
few days after it occurred and the road
is again opened to automobiles and
OF A DALLAS MAN
J. F. Carter, Traveler and
Salesman, Tells of the
Use of Plant Juice.
Here is a man -who was forced to give
up his position on account of bad
health, and who has for four years as
he expresses it been down and out. He
is Mr. J. F. Carter, of 723 North Pearl.
Dallas, and his statement is a splendid
tribute for Plant Juice.
"I am 54; have been a traveling
salesman for the Connolly Slanufactur
Ing Company, of New York, and have
traveled all oyer the United States
many times. It seems that I have had
almost everything the matter with me,
a chronic stomach and kidney trouble
that affected my bowels, nerves, liver
and blood. For four years I have been
unfit for business until Plant Juice
brought me relief It is wonderful
what it has done for me. It has cured
me and made me well and hearty, and
done it in a very few weeks. To show
you that I am a well man free from
stomach and kidney troubles. I have
eaten things hard on the kidneys, but
they don't affect me any more. I am
convinced that I am permanently cured
and am ready to enter business again."
For the relief and cure of all stom
ach, liver, kidney and blood ailments.
Plant Juice is the greatest corrective
and tonic of the age. It is made from
the juices of pure fresh herbs of many
countries. It restores vitality, puts new
life and energy into you. Sold at

Sign Modified Contract,
There the matter rested until chief
engineer L. C Hill came to Phoenix last
week and presented a modified con
tract calling for $1.10 per acre per year
for two acre feet, which he deemed ;
ample for any crops grown in this val
ley. v For those who felt that they must
have more, the rate would be 40 cents
per acre foot for the second and third
acre foot. 50 cents for the fourth acre
tnnt anrt fift rents for the fifth acre
foot, or a total of $3 per acre per year
for what they hitherto have paid $1.60 j
This did not prove .satisfactory to
the water users and hundreds of them
said they would refuse to sign the
modified contract They openly
charged that the Increase in cost for
service was being made to provide
funds to meet enormous wastes in the
cost of construction caused by the em
ployment of incompetents as engineers
and grafting contractors.
These charges, covertly though some
times openly made, did not deter the
reclamation officers from calling the
bluff of the belligerents and notices
were immediately issued that all water
would be cut off on October 1 from
all users who did not on or before that
date walk up to the captain s office
