LYON COUNTY TIMES.
YBRING TON. - NEVADA Saturday.Feb. ii, 1905. STILL ENDEAVORING TO SETTLE. The people of Mason Valley held another meeting on Wednes day of this week to consider the proposition of settling the vexed water suit with Miller & Lux. Attorney Farrington, who is em ployed by a number of defendants in the big suit was at the meeting, and urgently advised the people to settle the matter out of court, at to continue in the court would consume years of time and be a heavy expense on all, and in the end there would be no more water in the river. The people of Smith Valley have agreed on a basis of settlement with Miller & Lux, and it was the object of the meeting to have the Mason Valley people adopt the same plan. Many here were opposed to some parts of this plan, but one was formulated which will be presented to Miller & Lux. Whether it will be agreeable to them or not, re mains to be seen. The goverenment stands ready to appropriate $200,000 to start a reclamation scheme here just as soon as the suit is out of the way, and we do not see why any small point should stand in the way of an agreement by all to settle the suit out of court. In two years the amount of money appropriated would give everybody.on the West Walker River all the water neces sary for their use on land now irrigated, while if they bicker along for several seasons more the money now guaranteed may not be available. The water users of this valley can afford to go a long way towards getting the suit settled out of court to obtain that $200,000 to be gin work on the storage scheme. When once started such a system would, without doubt, be carried on until a complete system was constructed for the irrigation of every foot of land in this valley and Smith Valley. What do your prior rights amount to if you have to lose your home to get them enforced, or if there is no water in the river for anyone’s use? PRESIDENT SPEAKS WISELY. President Roosevelt speaks w'isely when, in discussing this new’ era of the west, he insists that the benefis of irrigation shall accrue most largely to the men who propose to be permantly identified with the reclaimed arid lands. The government has undertaken a work of great magnitude and it is important that the interest of the homeseekersbe securely guarded. There is much temptation for wealthy syndicates to control the water supply and thus compel the individuals to pay tribute. There is also some likeli hood that selfish speculators will, to quote the President’s expressive language, skint the cream and then depart. Against these con tingencies the president arrays himself in emphatic fashion. He desires the benefits to be enjoyed by the greatest possible number. If his plans prevail, there will be no end to the blessings which irri gation will confer. If on the other hand, the great natural re sources of the west are to be con trolled by a favored few, it would be almost better for the desert to remain. We can rest assured, however, that with the President personally interested in the great work of reclamation, the interests of the legitimate homeseekers will not be allowed to suffer. In thus demanding protection for the otherwise unprotected individual, the President engages himself in a righteous cause.—Washington Post. Grave Trouble forseea.

GRAND JURY REPORT. Dayton, Nev., January 5, 1905. To the Hon. M. A. Murphy, District Judge of the First Judicial District of the State of Nevada, Lyon County: The Grand Jury summoned to appear and in vestigate county matters on January 5th, begs leave to submit the following report. In the case of Adam Bay, charged with murder, the charge was ignored or dismissed. Further information with regard to county af fairs will be found In reports of committees an nexed hereto. J. G. YOUNG, Foreman. Dayton, Nev., February 6, 1905. To J. G. Young, Esq., Foreman of the Grand Jury: Your committee on public buildings respectful ly report: That we have examined the county court house and jail, and also the branch county jail at the town of Yerington, and find the coun ty court house in good condition. We find how ever, that the county jail is unsafe, as is also the branch county jail, at Yerington, because of the fact that the bars in the windows are so far apart that aid may be easily rendered to persons con fined in said jails by those on the outside. We would, therefore, recommend that the Board of County Commissioners be requested to procure screens the same as are used at the Washoe coun ty jail, and have the said screens placed over the windows of said jails at or.ce. We find that the jail at Yerington is provided with but one bed for two cells therein. We, therefore, recommend that another bed be procured at once for said jail. Respectfully submitted, F. N. Freeman, 1 B. H. Keymers, > Committee. J. M. Millsap, ) Dayton, Nev., February 6, 1905. To the Foreman and members of the Grand Jury of Uyou County, Nevada: Gentlemen:—We, the committee appointed to investigate public roads, bridges and sign-boards, beg leave to submit the following: There are several bridges and culverts in Com missioner District No. 3 which should be repaired and re-built immediately, as they are not safe to travel over. In Commissioner District No. 2 the Geiger bridge needs repairs, as it is not sate for heavy teams to pass over; also some small bridges and culverts need repairs. In Commissioner District No. 1 the old Buck land bridge needs immediate repairs. That guidboards be placed at all junctions of county roads in L,yon county in accordance with the law on guidboards, and that good cedar posts or iron pipe be used. The Couuty Commission er’s attention is respectfully called to the above report. We further recommend that the County Com missioners of the ditfereut districts look after the garbage dumped within the limits of couuty roads, and put a stop to the nuisance. Respectfully submitted, Fat Gallagher, 1 A. N. Bennetts, J. M. Millsap, W. F. DeWitt, £ Committee. H. Keema, W. M. Fen rose, J. W. Carter, Dayton, Nev., February 6, 1905. To the Foreman and members of the Grand Jury of Lyon County, Nevada: Gentlemen:—We, the committee appointed to investigate the books of School Trustees, school buildings and books of township officials, beg leave to submit the following: We find the books and buildings, in general, to be in fair condition, but would recommend that in some districts the books should be kept in a more systematic manner. Regarding the build- j ings, fences, etc. we find they are in need of re- I pair, and suggest that the Trustees in the several districts make the necessary repairs. We would especially recommend that the primary room in School District No. 2 be enlarged, as suggested by the Trustees. We also find that the teachers are allowed longer vacations, under salary, than allowed by law, and draw their salary lor same. We recom mend that this practice be discontinued. We find the books of the township officials to be in good shape so far as we investigated. We find a tendency on the part of trustees of most of the districts to extravagance in buying maps, globes, etc., of which very little use is made, and would recommend that they use more economy in this respect. We recommend that all business transacted by the trustees of the several districts be transacted respectively at the offices of the Clerks of the districts in a formal and business-like manner. Respectfully submitted, L- M. Blanchard, H. Randall, W. M. Phnrose, Committee. Geo. W. Wilson, J. W. Carter, Dayton, Nev., February 6, 1905. To the Foreman and members of the Grand Jury of Lyon County, N evada: Gentlemen:—Your committee on books of coun ty officers begs leave t.i submit the following: We have examined the books of the county of ficers cf Lyon county and think it advisable that the County Commissioners employ one or more experts to expert the books of the county officials of Lyon county, Nevada, two years back—from January 1, 1903, to January 1, 1905—and report the result of their labor to the Foreman of the Grand Jury as soon as completed.
