This, of (r-u: b.-i.ig.- the Nicarpntinn project in to t'nii.t, but just what Pres. i,' -n! v. !t is going to do is the Hue -I it •). Senator Morgan. who is undoubtedly tlv 1 es* fie'.'eft man ou the canal in Washington, is firm in the belief that the pr« iii nt will a'-cept the con ii tiei-.s of Ii' amendment to the I'-.n r.m,'. bill, which authorizes the chief executive of th" V'niteil States to ac cept the Nicaragua route "within a reasonable time." Senator Spoer.or. who favored Pan ama. says that a reaxmaide time may mean a month, year, or ten years, all ovirg to cotitlitions and circum stances. Ti friends of the Panama route project have by no moans given up the fiuiit. It is understood that th"y will ask Iho president lo care fully investigate the proceedings that have been taken at Bogota. In tho smaller projects private enter, prise has been highly successful, but in the larger and more difficult under takings it has not been uniformly sue eossful, owing to tho enormous sums of money required, and therefore pub lic lands have not been utilized for tho greatest good of tho people as a whole. Mr. Xowell also makes an interest ing explanation as to tho cause of lack of rainfall west of the Missouri river. The general atmospheric movement in this country, as a whole, ho says, is from west to east. Moisture-laden winds from tho Pacific ocean, encount ering the mountains near tho coast, are forced upwards and cooled. In the winter much of this moisture is de posited on the mountains, ami the winds pass over them to tho east per fectly dry. In tho summer time, when the mountains are relatively warm, winds from tho Pacific pass over them without depositing their moisture, bringing on the summer drought of the Pacific coast. Passing oastwardly, these winds, retaining their humidity, bring rains to the interior. Those sum mer rains help make up for tho defi ciency of rain in tho winter. The Hooky mountains intercept these winds. ami extract all tho mosture that re mains, so that by tho time tho winds roach the country oast of the moun tains, they are dry. Very Little Real Desert. While tho semi-arid regions are! largo, tho actual desert places are very small. To tho west of Salt Lake thot'e! is a true desert of sand and alkali,' destitute of vegetation, ami in southern California is the Salton desert, about feet below ocean level. It is esti mated by government experts that tho total desert ara of tho country em braces about TO.OOO.uOi) acres. Tho remainder of the arid region has a mote or loss scanty vegetation of some value to man. Tho government will experience much difficulty, and probably encount er much well meant but undeserved criticism in its attempt to preserve what is left of tho groat irrigaton cottn try for the benefit of the people.

SOME NOTES ON IRRIGATION Why the Government is Taking a Hand in the Irrigation of the Arid Plains of West Some Notes on Irrigation. In a recent article on irrigation in the west, .lermane of the Minneapolis Journal writes as follows: Why has tho government taken up the work of reclamation, wle-n private nterpriso has already done so tnuo.'i, and when tile problem is rendered ex ceedingly difficult because of that fact? The question is answered by F. It. Newell, chief engineer of tile geologi eal survey, lie notes that while priv ate enterprise has done much in the way of scientific and successful irri gation, tho results have not been wind ly satisfactory, from the broad view point of the country as a whole. Choice spots have been developed ami the easily available waters have been utilized, but the larger public interests have not been guarded, and the mak ing of homes has not been carried on as vigorously as public policy requires. oughly holiest ami intelligent adminis tration of the new irrigation law can bring t*veil a measure of success. From this time on it will be highly important that the secretary of the interior, who is charged with the administration of the law. be honest, energetic ami v/eli informed. Tho law is so general in its tortus that it will bear good or had fruit in proportion as it is adtninis tereil properly or otherwise. Tin president recognizes this fact, which no doubt explains in part why he sticks to Secretary Hitchcock the nit.-t ttnp.ip tilar cabinet officer for a generation, in any party. Hitchcock is admittedly honest ami conscientious, lie know.-, the western country. He has mad" a can ftil study of irrigation. Tho pro-d dent can trust him implicit I v. These things being thus, many of Hitchcock's unpleasant characteristics can be over looked and the many pecnliaritit temperament ami character which bringdown upon his head the wrath ofj I public men, The Difficulties to Be Encountered. A brief look at one of the numerous difficulties the government, will on counter in its administration of the new irrigation law will bo interesting. Tho public land laws were drawn with special reference to the broad prairie country of tho middle west, between tho Alleghenies antl tho Mis souri river, whore tho rainfall is suffi cient. In that country every tract of lt acres is practically as good as every other tract, antl each farmer is entirely independent. as methods of agriculture. In the great] aritl antl semi arid region, however.' tho value of land depends entirely on tho water rights. Tho interests of the farmers are closely related and can not bo separated. While the tracts! may be equally good as to soil, values' may differ widely because one tract has more water than another The I man who owns the water virtually owns everything of value. This fact has not been sufficiently recognized in tho framing of law regulating the. tlisposal of public lands, and the result is seen in oppressive water monopolies, in many parts of the irrigation eotMi try. In many instances title to a few acres has carried control »vi any thousands, and in this way the build ing of homes has boon prevented, the government having attempted to settle the semi arid west under the same code of land laws which it used in the settlement of the Mississippi valley.
