Section 23, Article 2, Chapter 93-A
Is Quoted.
Tho legislators aro being forked
on considerably to legislate in tho
matter of the water power of tho
Btate, and to do something to provont
tho StntoBoard of Irrigation from
giving away all tho water power. This
agitation has reached such a stago
that an investigation of the persent
laws and tho board lecords was made,
with tho resut that contrary to tho
lmpiossion being given tho state U1I3
board has not and cannot glvo away
iho water power of tho state. An in
vestigation of tho present laws and
tho records of tho board by a state of
ficial brought out tho following:
Tho law Is clear to tho effect that
tlift Stato Hoard of Irrigation has no
power to grant a. water right. That
power Is lodged exclusively in the
legislature. Tho only power which
tho Stato Board of Irrigation has In
Telatlon to this matter is tho power to
cither approve or reject an applica
tion ror a permit. This permit Is not
an appropriation of tho public waters
of tho stato. It simply entitles the
applicant to undertake its project
' within ski months after tho approval
thereof. Tho right given by the per
mit Is merely a contingent right, and
Is entirely defeated by tho falluro of
tho applicant to comply with the re--quiroments
of the statuto within six
.mohths after tho application is ap
proved. Section 2S. article il, chapter 93a,
Compiled Statutes, makes It tho duty
of tho Stato Board of Irrigation,
through its secretary, to approve an
application where there is unappro
priated, wait.- In tho sourco of ( supply
named In said application. It 13 then
incumbent upon tho applicant to take
such steps as may bo necessary to
perfect an appropriation thereunder.
If ho fails to do this his permit is
subject to cancellation. If ho goes
ahead and constructs his projects he
does not oven ttion have an -appropriation
untill ho shall have applied tho
waters to a beneficial use.

That C. B. Manuel, head of tho
"boys' industrial school -at Kearney,

County Assessors Close Session.
Tho county assessors of the state
havo closed their session and have
returned to their several counties.
They woro unanimous for a repeal of
that section of tho revenue law re
lating to taxation of mortgages,
claiming that every county experienc
ed a decreaso in taxation on nccount
of its operations. They contended
that with the law ropoalod all mort
gages would bo subject to taxation
while as the preaont law has a
clause which exempts the loaner from
paying tho tax on the mortgage when
tho mortgage agrees to do so, and
much Is lost on account of It.
For New Agricultural Building.
Representatives Leo of Douglas and
Jackson of Nuckolls havo Introduced
a bill to appropriate $108,000 for tho
pin chase of land and tho erection of
a modern agricultural and horticul
tural building on tho stato fair
groundo, from a piolimlnary sketch
for tho building. Representative Lte
in speaking of this bill at a recent
gathering of tho managers of tho
state and county fairs said that the
farmers aro too modest in their re
quests for tho advancement of agri
culture; be snld'that tho old buildings
mo ii dlsgraco to tho Btuto and that
tl.e should bo replaced by a modern
tuuctnre r.t once.
Bill For Pure Teachers.
Tho doeiro of legislators of tho pres
ent session to havo puro food, pure
cloth, pur's iron, puro politics and what,
not. Is to extend even to tho field of
pedagogy. A bill by Sonator Uummoll
of Wobstor county bars any person
addicted to tho uso of opiates, liquor,
clgarots and profane language from
obtaining a teacher's certificate in th's
state Tho measuro has the backing
of a nu.nbor of prominent educators

Tho state railroad commission

1 To Investigate Institutions.
Apart from tho action of the house
in providing for a legislative investi
gation of tho affairs of stato institu
tions for tho 'past ten years, tho sen
ate will bo given an opportunity to
express itself along the same lines. A
resolution introduced by Pi!acek of
Saunders provides for such an Investi
gation of four years of tho Manuel ad
ministration of tho boys' industrial
school at Kearney.
Immedlato action was not taken on
tho resolution, tho protest of Cordeal
of Red Willow boing sutllciont to lay
tho matter over one day under tho
senate rules. A promised deficit o'f
close to ?30,000 at tho school furnish
; tho supporters of the resolution
with sufficient reasons for its adop.
tlon by tho senate. It Is likely that
former Land Commissioner Cowles of
Falrbury, whoso rows with Superin
tendent Manuel during tta past two
years havo been many and varied, will
be called in to give testimony If tho
senate decides to approve tho Placek
Bushco's bill relating to tho false
advertising of rea stato offered an

Fee Splitting Doctors In Bad.
Tho bill by Dodgo of Douglna to
prevent tho splitting of foes by city

as agonts of tho former In working up
cases, has alroady attracted consider
able attention. Mr. Dodgo has state
