YER1NG TON, - NEVADA Saturday. Jan. 14, 1905. ANOTHER COMPROMISE PROPOSITION. What Miller & Lux Now Agree to Do In the Division of Water. At a recent conference of a number of the water users of Ma son Valley and the Miller & Lux people in San Francisco, the fol lowing proposition was submitted by the latter as a basis for a par tial settlement of the vexatious suit now pending. The land and water owners of Smith Valley and this valley will meet in Yerington to discuss this proposition today: • San Francisco, Dec. 30, 1904. Messrs. J. I. Wilson and J. W. Simpson. Gentlemen:—In view of our conversation with reference to finding some method of settlement of the disputes in the case of Mil ler & Lux against Rickey, so far as relates to the users of water from the West Walker River be low Antelope Valley, we will now state definitely the proposition which we made to you orally, and which we think will afford a basis for a settlement as between those parties. 1. An agreement is to be made between Miller & Lux, all the users of water on the West Walk er River in Smith Valley and Ma son Valley, and also the Spragg Woodcock Ditch Company, and the ow-ners of the Nichol ditch, by which the respective priorities are to be settled and the amount of the respective appropriations to be fixed according to the capacity of the respective ditches as they were at the commencement of this suit. For this purpose we are willing to accept the measurements heretofore made by Mr. Houston so far as they go, and such further measurements as may be necessa ry 2. An agreement to be made covering the season of short water substantially as follows: Whenever the quantity ot water passing the Hoye bridge shall be found to be less than a certain quantity (say somewhere from 30 to 40 feet, as may be found right) the ditch owners in Smith Valley are to agree to turn down a por tion ot that water at the foot of Smith Valley to be measured at a point to be selected at or near the foot of that valley; the owners above mentioned in Mason Valley to agree to turn down a certain other portion of that water to Miller & Lux and its co-owners, to be measured at a point on the riv er between the Nichol ditch and the Campbell ditch; that arrange ment to continue so long as the water passing the Hoye bridge is less than the quantity named. 3. The division of the short water between the various owners in Smith Valley is to be arranged as shall suit them, and the divis ion between the owners named in Mason Valley above the Campbell ditch to be made as agreed upon between them; and all the owners in Smith Valley to be jointly re sponsible for sending down the quantity of water agreed upon, and said owners in Mason Valley to be likewise jointly responsible for sending down the agreed quan tity to Miller & Lux and its co owners. 4. When the details are all fixed and agreed upon, the entire agreement to be reduced to writ ing, signed by all the owners above mentioned, filed in Court in this suit and a decree in the suit as between the parties to that agreement to be entered in ac cordance therewith. 5. It should, however, be un derstood that if such an agree ment be entered into, the persons signing it will also agree to co operate with Miller & Lux in op posing the claim of T. B. Rickey and will contribute to the expense of that contest in proportion to their respective irrigated acreage. The foregoing proposition seems to us to substantially meet the views that you have expressed, but we do not, of course, insist that this is the only method. If you find any difficulties in making the arrangement precisely as we have suggested, we shall be glad to consider these objections. In fact, however, it seems to us that the concessions which we thus offer to make are very large on our part, and they are offered only with a view of bringing to an end this protracted litigation. While this proposition does not include any owner on the East Walker River, we shall be glad to negoti ate with those people on a similar basis. We have in this proposition said nothing about the question of water storage. We share your feeling that it is a very important matter, and we have already indi cated our desire to see some such system adopted, either through government help or in some other way. It is, however, utterly im possible to take up the question of storage until the respective water rights are adjusted and de termined as between all parties, and for that reason there is no use in attempting to deal with that matter in a partial settlement like the present. If you find this proposition in substance meets with the appro bation of your people we would suggest that you have a committee appointed with authority to act and to meet us here to draw the agreement, and we urgently re quest that when such a meeting is had your committee will be ac companied by one or more of your attorneys.
