WASHINGTON, Jan. Kl-(Bpeclal Tolc-granO-Ilepresenlatlvo
today that ho had tho assurance of the
president that the hill throwing open to
settlement a portion of the abandoned
t ort Nlohrata military reservation would
be signed by him when It reached the
White House. Tho Hill has recently
passed the aennto.
Mr. Klnkald appeared today before tho
committee on ngrlculturo In a hearing
n hla bill to amend tho law relating to
adulterated butter, Under the present
law many small creamer-ten, not only In
N'ebraska, but In Iowa, Minnesota and
ther northwestern states, have been sub
icted to severe penalties by the Internal
i avenue office because their butter has
t ecn shown to contain, more than, sixteen
I er cent of moisture. representatives
rt many states have been trying to sc-
are an amendment to the law. which Is
alleged to be unduly harsh, as It subjects
lolatcrs to n. penalty of :00 for each of
fonec, even when committed unknowingly.
Holder Present Claims.
Needs of tho reclamation service and
of settlers on such projects were pre
finted to 8enatorelect Norrls today by
F. Knorr of the Scott's Bluff experimental
station and'C, J. Blanchard of tho recla
mation service. One chango suggested
it which Mr. Norrls agreed In full, was
to reduco the amount that ought to be
laid for trie first 'year or two after a
s.ittler had. filed on a project.
"I consider1' this a serious defect In tho
present law," satd Mr. Norrls. "It re
quires k man to pay too much money,
down after taking the land and really
prohibits a poor man from getting the
bonnflt of tho law" It should be Amended
so as to requlro a payment sufficiently to
prove the good faith of tho settler."
IMild Vnlura Vnr.
In the courso of the conference Mr.
Hlnnuhard pointed out tl.ot whllo tho law
tequlred every project to pay a certain
proportion of - the actual cost to tho gov
ernment of eaelv project, the land watered
was of widely varying values. Tor In
stnnce, In the south, farmers on Irrigation
projects have twelve months of the year
for farming, whllo In romo northern re-
Klon there are but three months. Jle
thought nome recognition of this fact
ought to bo taken Into consideration In
fixing the charges on tho land.
Mr. Knorr has made some very success
ful experiments on his .farm near Scott's
Muff, ono In particular show that two
r.ropB of alfalfa could bo cut from the
first year's sowing.
