LYON COUNTY TIMES.
DAYTON, - - NEVADA. Saturday. . .February i6, 1901. NEWUND’S IRRIGATION BILL Nevada’s Congressman, F. G. Newlands, is trying mighty hard these days to make a record for himself. Six years in Congress with only a $200 relief bill to show for it is not the best record to come before the people asking for their endorsement for United States Senator. However, Mr. Newlands proposes to make the best of the opportunity offered by the next two years and so has introduced a bill or two. These bills and Mr. Newlands’ doings are given a great deal of space in the Pacific Coast news papers—they get from three to five lines in the Congressional Recotd. Evidently the fact that Mr. New lands has introduced a bill does not cause the commotion in Wash ington that it does in Nevada. The bill for the introduction of which Nevadans are to owe Mr. Newlands an everlasting debt of gratitude provides for seven ap propriations for California, $156, 000 for Arizona and the following for Nevada: Toward the construction of a reservoir on Rock Creek, $30,000. Humboldt River, $40,000. Construction of reservoirs on the Truckee, $80,000. Carson, Muddy, Virgin and Wal ker Rivers, $10,000. Investigation of artesian con ditions in Lemon, Warm Springs and other valleys, $5,000. The first appropriation for Rock Creek in Elko county is a good one. There are a good many votes in Elko county, and besides it is pro posed to increase Elko’s represent ation in the Nevada Legislature and the Legislature elects the United States Senator. But where is a storage reservoir to be built on the Truckee river? And what would it irrigate when built? There is no river in the entire State of Nevada that is so well used as the Truckee. The only place in Nevada that such a reservoir could be constructed would be below the Asylum, and this would irrigate no land for when the river reaches the nar rows at Wadsworth the water can not be got out of it. Therefore it would have to be constructed in California. The only practical place in California is of course Donner Lake. And who owns Donner Lake? Why Mr. New lands, of course. The next largest appropriation is for the Humboldt River. The Humboldt River for a hundred miles runs along the Central Pacific railroad tracks. The Central Pa cific owns the most of the land twenty miles on each side of its track. The Central Pacific may not always remain out of politics. The Carson River would irrigate thousands of acres of land in Doug las, Ormsby, Lyon and Churchill counties. Storage of the Muddy river would open up, in Lincoln county, a large tract of the finest bit of land in the United States. The Virgin River would tap another portion of Lincoln county, where cotton, olives and figs are grown as easily as we grow pota toes in this portion of Nevada. With the advantages of storage on the Walker River Carson peo ple are well acquainted, for Mr. Newlands himself in his speech here before the campaign, told us of the money he had expended in surveys, etc. The three counties where the bulk of the appropriation is to go under the reapportionment bill would have twenty votes in the legislature, and at the same time Mr. Newlands would find a market for Donner Lake, and would great ly improve railroad property. • All in all this bill is a wonderful document. It is so constructed as to please the greatest possible number of representatives in the legislature by irrigating the least possible number of acres of land in Nevada. It is something worth consider ing, both by the people and the members of the legislature.—Car son News. THE NEW APPORTIONMENT. The Assembly Substitute Ap portionment Bill, which will prob ably become a law, increases the membership of the Legislature to 54, as follows: SENATE. ASSEMBLY.

But we don’t think “nude figures” would shock us very much. ,We have attended social entertainments where the ladies were in “full dress” and wore but little more than a neck lace above the belt, and we still live. The figure on a five-dollar bill which has the most attraction for us is the figure "5.”—Ex. When Carrie Nation, the joint smasher of Kansas, heard that the Legislature was about to consider a joint resolution she immediately reached into her stocking for her hatchet. Kansas liquor dealers may in clude many kinds of fools, but we doubt if there are any of them with so little sense as to attempt to tar and feather Mrs. Nation. Ranch Sold. Hank Mather has sold his ranch in Smith Valley to Michael Fallon, of Churchill County. It is under stood that the purchase price was $13,500. This piece of ranch prop erty is one of the finest in Lyon County, and Mr. Fallon has secured a bargain. Mr. Mather will soon leave tor San Francisco, and will probably return to Cape Nome in in the Spring. Stop* the Coogh and work* off the Cold. Laxative Bromo-Quinine Tablets cure a cold in one day.
