The revised form provides, in brief, for payment of ?1.1) on October 1st for two acre feet of I water: 40 cents for the next foot and r.O cents for the next foot, or $2. no for 4 acre feet. Sixty tits an acre foot is to be charged for each foot over four feet. Please be present promptly. .Embodted in the above call are found all the features except one that ame in the letter to Captain George! D. Christy from the department of the interior- The one additional bit of news concerns the change in sec tion five of the proposed water rental ontrait. Although it does not indi cate any of the changes,- the letter' assures Captain Christy they will be made. The printed forms for the signing- of the new water agree ments are being made in Washing ton and will arrive at the office f the water users association not later than Monday, according to the ex pectations of Secretary Van der Veer. The minimum flow per acre has been reduced from three to two feet. The price has not been dropped in proportion. At half a dollar a foot and a rule for a minimum of three acre feet a year, the farmer was re cjuired to pay $l.r0 on the year's ser vice on the first of each October. The third acre foot costs 40c, making the amount named as the minimum in the former contract and the same amount by the modified form identi cally the same in price, $l.r0. But the charge for four acre feet under the changed contract is only $2.00 against $2.40 under the other form. When asked his views on the mo dified contract, Mr. Orine declined to commit himself. ,-I won't say any thing until I see the whole thing next Monday," he said. He believes the new form is a great improvement over the first proposed, but has no ideas as to its relation to the agree ment in force heretofore. "While the former charge for a year's ser vice was $1.60, the farmer could either the summer service at or the winter's at a dollar,- which posed no strict minimum and much cheaper than the two buy 60c new forms. president orme and Joseph Cope had planned to leave tonight for Salt Lake city to attend the Federation of Water Users' associations.
