Major C. S. Riche of the Rock Island
office of the United States engineers,
this afternoon. In speaking of these
claims said: "It is graft, pure and
simple." He bitterly "criticised the

contingent fee, and press the govern

such attempt," he said. "At present
the canal Is being fed 90 cubic feet of
water a second, and this means that
if all of this water leaks out on the
land, it is only one cubic foot, or
possibly two buckets full to each. mile.
That such an amount of water can
damage land is an unreasonable con
tention. There are some cases of gen
uine damage, and I will of course, dJ
all in my power to adjust these. Bui
on the whole the claims are mere at
