The secretary says that so far as can be foreseen at present no further lesrislation is, re quired, the present law having been found sufficient to accomplish its pur pose. The report shows that while exam inations and surveys have been made in all sections of the arid region, Ne vada is the only state where actual construction has begun, and Arigona is the only territory. In other states and territories plans and specifications are in various stages of progress and thfe work is being pusheaL 'The irrigation fund, accumulated from the sale of public lands in the thirteen states and three territories to which the irrigation act applies, now amounts to a total of $16,591,836. This fund has been accumulatingii? the treas ury since 1901. The question of drilling artesian wells has been one of considerable comment in view of the fact that many persons have importuned for such work simply, says the report, t6 develop the mineral resources beneath the surface. A rul ing precluding such experiments has been made on the ground that informa tion "possessed by the geological survey on the subject does not warrant the ex penditure of the irrigation fund for that purpose. Large areas of the public lands have been withdrawn from entry under the act pending further development. Con tracts have been let for three sections of the work on the Truckee canal in Nevada and also on the Salt River dam in Arizona. The policy has been, the to divide the vtork into so as to engage a large contractors and encourage report says small units number of competition. In many states radical changes in the water right laws will have to be made before irrigation projects can be undertaken under the act. Nevada has already changed her laws in conform ity with the act. Reached a New York, Dec. 11.—The Clyde line Reamer Cherokee which arrived from San Domingo reports all quiet in that country.
