M., for the purpose of examining bids and award ing contract for the construction of the Como bridge, and to take any other measures necessary for the com pletion of the said work. Done by order of the board. By Howard D. Smart, . 35-2t. Clerk. Reservoir Site Question Live One In Hon tana. ConunlMloncr Rules That No One Win Be Allowed to Fence Then. The commissioner of the general land office has recently stated that those having irrigation reservoir sites will not be permitted to fence the same; that this would be in violation of the law. The question has been raised whether in the event of the party holding the reservoir site, if valuable works, such as high dykes, levees or exposed places, where the trampling j of stock would result in .injury to such. j works, a party holding such reservoir j site would be permitted to fence the same for thetr protection. As far as learned yet, this point has not been decided. j This is an important matter to many Montanians. A large number of res ervoirs have been filed upon under the act of March 3, 1891, and many ho.d \ that in securing such reseryoir sites. | they are entitled to fence the same to . the exclusion of others. Some hold that those possessing such reservoir sites do so to the exclusion of any en try man, that any crop which may grow upon such land covered by such reser voir site belongs to the party holding the reservoir site. Evidently this is a mistaken idea, and the statement of the commissioner confirms the belief in that any entryman who locates lands subject to such reservoir or can al right of way is entitled to any and all crops which land so entered will produce, regardless of whether it is the site of a reservoir or a canal; that entrymen in making such entry does so subject to such right of way, and should the land-be damaged by reason of the water being held in such reser voir or canal, he has no redress.
