EINCOL.K, Neb.. May 2i.-(Spectal.)-,
Deputy State Auditor Minor, who comes
irom the Irrigated district of Nebraska,
is very much Interested in the position
the government will take on the Irriga
tion matter, which has been the problem
confronting water usors In the Scott's
Bluff country, nccently J. T Whitehead
and C. CLW Scovllle, representing the
farmers of the North Platto proect and
the Nebraska-Wyoming propositions, met
with others interested alone water lines
Before Secretary Vane at Washington.
The gentlemen stated to the secretary,
according to Mr, Minor, that farmers of
the North Piattn proect have no cause
Xor complaint against the supervising en
gineer, n. F. Walter, or other service
officials, but the most pressing difficulty
'was that -of making payments In the
time specified. Mr. Whitehead stated
that the original estimates have Increased
from 130 to $55 per acre and that there Is
nothing certain that the price may reach
higher. He assured the secretary that
the settlers did not want to evade any
ust debt, but felt that the cost of such
work, which was largely of an experi
mental nature, should not be Included In
the sum of their debt,
He said that settlers on the North
(Platte project were confident that with
the co-opcratlon of the sccretury and the
department they would be able to make
a great success of the project In the fu
ture, but potnted out that to bring that
success the settlers should be given more
time and It should be extended over a
period of twenty-five years.
Before the hearing Secretary Lane told
the visitors that they must not ask for
too much. "Don't OBk for full control
of your projects," said he, "because you
can't havo It. Outline what you want.
Xon't be radical. I am from the west.
Try and deal fairly with me and I will
be the same with you."
Secretary Lane threw out mime crumbs
of comfort when he gave them to under
stand that while the government must
remain In control of the projects, the
thought the water users should havo
some voice in the regulations.
Marshall Says Fruit
Is Setting Heavily
(From a Staff Correspondent. )
LINCOLN, May 14. (Speclal.)-Secre-tary
Marshall of the State Horticultural
Boclety, returned this morning from an
extended trip In the eastern section of
the state and Is enthusiastic over the
conditions which point to one of the
greatest fruit crops the state has ever
Sold he. "Fruit is setting heavily In
all orchards. All varieties look well with
the possible exception of Wlnesaps. This
tvarloty yielded heavily last season and
could not be expected to come back so
strong this year. Then too, the cool
weather has not been conductive, to the
best .results for the Wlnesap. variety.
Jonathan, Ben Davis, Jeannette, Grimes,
twd bther varieties are setting heavily
and I never saw such prospects for a
big crop in the state."

Pool is in Mood
to Ask for Reports
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Mny 14.-(Speclal.)-Deputy
Commissioner of Labor C. W. Pool, has
discovered a way In which the revenues
of the state may be considerably aug
mented and feels that, much as he shall
personally dislike to enforce the pro
visions of the 'law regarding "iome of the
manufacturing enterprises, duty may
force him to tako drastic measures to
cause a compliance with the plain pro
visions of Section 331" of the statutes,
which provldo for the imposlt'on of a
penalty of $10 per day fine ugnlnst each
manufacturer who falls to make his re
port to tho bureau of labor.
Ho has notified each manufacturer
twice of the report to be made to the
department, yet there nre approximately
BOO Institutions In the state which have
failed to respond.
To !mpoe a penalty of J10 on each In
stitution for each day It refuses or falls
to submit the required report would re
dound to tho financial benefit of thi
state, though It mlRht be considered a
"hardship upon the manufacturer.
