As was anticipated by tbe delegates in
ttendance at the irrigation congress,
kiterday's proceedings were the live
pit and most enjoyable so far.
[The platform, or address to the peo
le, was read by Delegate Lionel Shel
kn and was continually interrupted by
le loud and prolonged cheering which
rested the many sections which pleased
be irrigators.
Colonel Richard Hinton was wound
p for tbe day, and the manner in
hich he jumped on and off the plat
irm, yelled, fumed and twisted his
ennyaonian locks made many a younger
elegate perspire with envy. There

L There was also loud applause.
I Anderson of California made an address

I taking irrigation works to reclaim the
r arid region and to build large works
I which could not be made by individual >
effort. These extensive worka should be !
put in ao tbat men of limited means can 1
buy land and be at no expense in getting
water to it except connecting with tbe
main ditch.
| At 10:30 a.m. Governor Sheldon, chair-
I man of tbe committee on resolutions,
read tbe report of that committee as fol
! To the People ol tbo United states:
Ths fnternatlonal Irrigation congress,
assembled at Los Angeles, Cal., for the
■ five daya beginning October 10, 1893,
composed of delegates from tbia and
i foreign countriee, announces the follow- \
| ing statement of its views as tbe delib
| crate conclusions of tbe representatives
' of tbe western states and territories:
Writing to an American friend many I
. years ago, Macauley said: "Your na- j
[ tionol safeguard lies in your boundless ;
public domain. You now have room
i for tha spread of population and the sst-
I isfaction of every man's desire for land ;
I bnt ttie time will come when this heri-
Itage will iiave been consumed, this snfe-
IguarJ will have vanished. You will
\ nave your crowded Birmingbaius aud
i Manchester, and then will come the
test of your institutions."
We invite the eainest attention of our
countrymen to a situation of which thia
prophecy furnishes a startling sugges
tion. The scenes recently enacted in the
, Cherokee strip remind ua that the pres-
I sure of surplus population still seeks an
I outlet in tho nest, and thßt we have
, practically reached tbe limit of settle
■ nient in that portion of the public do
main where the rainfall ia sufficient to
Mipuort agriculture. Existing social aud j
industrial conditions in the great cities I
of the east and middle west also remind
us of the alarming increase of tbe clsbs
of bomelsßs people within the borders of
tbe United Stateß. To provide a further
field lor colonization under conditions
which promise a good average prosperity
to individual citizens, by the utilization
of the great public estate still remaining
in the bands of. the government, ie in
our judgment a work which must now
appeal with irresistible force to Ameri
can statesmanship.

The public lauds which still beloug to
| the people ol the United States are for
I the most part arid or semi-arid, requir
ing the artificial application of water to
urecder them productive. They lie be
tween the 88«ti meridian and tho Pacific
j ocean und are divided between 17 states
land territories. This domain is estima
ted by the general land office to contain
{H2,000,0uu acrss. Knough of this land
is arable to provide homes and farms lor
lniliionsof people. The portion which
can never be cultivated is available for
range purposes or for forest reservation?.
.Notwithstanding the present condition
of these arid lands, we confidently pre
dict that they will become the seat of
Ithe highest civilization and the greatest
{average prosperity yet developed
lon this continent. Tbe intensive
'scientific cultivation rendered possible
by irrigation reeults in the largest con
:eivable development of independence
md prosperity on the fewest possible
lumber of acres. The conditions of so
iial life which naturally grow up in a
egion of small farms are among the
trongeat attractions of the irrigated dis
tricts of the west. It is the experi*nce
Ll the world that the acre value of laud
fccreases as the farm unit diminishes.
Kl.o reclamation of the arid public do-'
Rain, means the improvement of the
Bople'a eßtate and tne consequent addi
■ of a vast turn to tbe national wealth.
progress thus far made in the re
Buiution of tho arid regions has been
I along ths line of local effort and indi
vidual enterprise. Nevertheless, the
problem of conquering these deserts ii
national in essence. These lands arc
the heritage of the American people,
To have a home upon them is the birth
right of every American child. The
conditions under which they shall be
reclaimed and acquired by the settler
must ho founded on the recognition ol
i these facts. There are also question!
between states which require national
legislation and oversight, and bowevei
I western men might desire to settle the
j problems which nature has placed about
j them, the result cannot be attained ex
cept thror,a;h national legislation.
The laws now governing waters ant!
lands in a number of states and terri
tories are inadequate and dangerous,
Streams are appropriated under lax and
| conflicting state laws, and the abaorp
1 tion of iuteistato waters promises to be
come the f/uitfiil source of future litiga
! tion and social disturbance. The deseri
I land law, under whose operatious the
public land is passing away from ths
j people, is largely perverted from iti
original pnrnose. It offers the settlei
land upon terms with which be can not
ordinarily comply except by resorting tc
perjury. The law has become in ite
execution the instrument of corpora
tions, who acquire land for $1.25 pel
acre, reclaim it at an average cost ol
$8.15 per acre and sell it back again tc
tbe people upon profitable terms named
only by themselves.
We declare that water in natural chan
nels and beds is not private property
and that it can neither he bought no
sold. Companies for supplying and die
tnlmting water are common carriers
subject to the supervision and control o
the power from which they derive tbei
We declare that all streams rising in
one state and flowing by natural course
through one or more other states mus
be conserved aud equitably divide*
nnder federal authority.
To device laws which will assist th
work of reclamation, and furuUL prop
er safeguards alike to public aud privat
interests, while recognizing the right
of the-nation, on one hand, and of th
states, dtl the other, is a tank that ma
not be lightly undertaken. We sha
suggest fe means by which it may be ac
cotuplished a reasonable period
but in the mnus, ime there are import
ant things which may be done by legia
lation. Nothing must be allowed to
jeopardize interstate streams, and it is
highly important that tbe drainage
areas of these streams should be
promptly known and defined at once in
a way sufficient for tbe purpose here it
view and not await the alow results of a
thorough and technical inquiry
The pastoral lands, especially.with
in these drainage areas, shouh
also in our judgment be reservet
for the present from sale or permanen
disposal. Tbe net results for leasing the
same for ranee purposes should be usee
ior developing a possible water supply
to the end that stock farms and homes
may be created thereon, instead of cat
tie ranges aa at present. The whole
subject of national legislation shouk
be investigated by federal authority
and as a means to this end we sugges
the appointment of non-partisan na
tional commission to be named at once
and instructed to report as soon as pos
Tbe importance of tbe developmen
of wise local laws and the control o
waters lying wholly within tbe individ
ual states constitute reasons (or the
early admission of tbe territories into
the nnion.
We favor the limitation of the amount
of land that may be taken up by settlers
under systems of irrigation to 40 acres,
aad predict tbat in the future it will be
found desirable to reduce tbe amount;
still further and we favor tbe restriction
of the taking up of public lands to
the people, of the United , States.
Thia haa become necessary with
increaee of population and is
also desirable as rendering more difficult
tbe acquirement of lands ior speculative
We call attention to the growing im
portance of the Btorago problem, and
demand rigid national and stats super
vision of dams and other works, in or
der to protect life and property.
We especially urge the importance of
an enlightened policy for the care and
preservation of the forests against wan
ton destruction by fire and otherwise.
We indorse tho policy of forest and
storage reservations covering the moun
tain water sheds of the west.
The importance of due care and pro
tection of these water sheds to maintain
tho perennial flow of springs and
streams, and to prevent Hoods and tor
rents, demands the establishment of a
wise forestry system. Fending tbe es
tablishment uf such an organization,
we favor the use of detachments of the
United States army to protect all the
western mountain waler sheds from in
uriee detrimental to the highest use of
he valley lande.
Sums amounting to millions in the
iggrogste have been paid to the govern
ment for lands in the semi-arid region
which were understood to be lit for ag
riculture without irrigation. The expe
'ience of years, during which settlers
tnd their families have suffered the
severest hardships, demonstrates that
they can oniy bo made productive by
the artificial application of water. It ia
In act of simple justice to ask the gov
ernment to devote a portion of tbe
money received from tbe sale of theße
ands to the scientific investigation of
means for their reclamation, from stir
ace streams, storm waters or under-
rrounu supplies. We earnestly urge
ipeedy action by congießS in thiß direc
Tbe time has come when the work of
developing an arid land policy, on broad
national and state lines, can do longer
be delayed. The number ot plans sug
jested for the solution of the problem
are legion. Some of them bave receive!
endorsement from commercial and poli
ical conventions. Believing tbat bar
monyof action is vital, tbat wide dis
cussion and pntient investigation ai
indispensable in arriving at wise con
elusions, we earnestly favor tbe adoptio
of the lollowing plan:
There shall bo appointed by tbe na
tional executive committee of the irr
gation congress v commission for eac
state and territory in the arid or eem
arid region", consisting of five member
each, who shall be competent and expe
rienced men. These commissions shall
at once enter upon a careful investiga
tion of the conditions existing in each
of their states and territories and then
formulate plans looking to the adoption
of a national policy to be supplemented
by appropriate local laws.
The results of the investigations of
tbese several commissions shall be sub
mitted to the next irrigation congress,
»tid upon these reports the final »ud iiei
inite declarations of the people oi tbe
western states and territories may be
based. By this means we hope within a
reasonable tune to suggest a satisfactory
irrigation policy to tbe nation and to the
states and territories, and we hereby de
clare our purpose to erect it upon broad
1 foundations of justice and equity, with
due regard for the rights both of labor
and of capital.
We endorse .the principle of the dis
: trict irrigation law of California, com
monly known aa the Wright law, as a
wiee step in the direction of the pnblic
ownership of irrigation works. While
we do not assert that it is suited to tbe
needs of unsettled localities, or that it
cannot be Improved in some of its minor
details, we do declare that experience
has demonstrated its usefulness, its fair
ness and its economy. The need of atate
; supervision ol local districts is, howev
j er, apparent, and states that may here -
, after adopt it should provide for this
important feature. Tbe right of con-
I detonation of private works and their
'■ acquirement by tbe people upon pay
; ment of just compensation, when ascer
tained by fair appraisement, we heartily
I endorse and recommend that it be
! adopted by all states where private irri
gation works, covering land not a part
I of the public domain, may exist.
We advise all states in the arid region
to make provision for departments of
irrigation, supervision and engineering,
and to vigorously prosecute the work of
practical investigation.
To deal with the arid public domain
is one of tbe mighty tasks of tbe future,
tt means not only the conquest of a new
agricultural empire and a tremendous
contribution to tbe national wealth of
the future, but it involves the develop
ment of new forms of civilization and
will give new life to popular institutions.
It is a high and sacred trust, and in so
far as it may become tbe peculiar con
cern of western men they will be true to
its great obligations. But they approach
the matter in no spirit of petty section
alism. They invite the co-operation of
all their countrymen, east as well as
west, north as well as south. While
mining and ita kindred employments
are vastly important to tbe western
states, directly and indirectly, tbe irri
gation industry is and must ever be tbei
supreme interest. Under just laws am
proper national encouragement it wil
add new lustre to the American name.
Governor Sheldon, on the conclusion
of the reading, moved the adoption o
tho report.
lie made a strong speech in favor o
tbe motion. He said: Gentlemen,
came to this congress satin lied tbat i
knew all that was possible for anyone to
know about the irrigation question ;anc
I bad framed in my own mind a plan
for carrying irrigation into operation
that seemed to me simple, and I did not
suppose there could be any objections
made to it. Now, since I came here,
and bave heard the speaking, and have
met the gentlemen from the 17 states
and territories, and hear what they
have to say, I have about come to the
conclusion tbat 1 have not sufficient in
formation to declare a plan in detail for
the carrying into execution of tbe policy
of irrigation.
Therefore this committee came to tbe
conciusion that it would consider gen
eral principles merely.
It has declared tbat so far that the
public domain is a national question. 1
ahould have the consideration of tbe
national government, aud the waters o
the streams which arise npon the public
domain should be under the control ol
that government.
It declares what every practical Amer
ican most believe that the public lands
of the nation shall be disposed of in
small quantities, in order tbat we may
reduce this fearful percentage of home
less people.
There are four elements without which
man cannot exist —sunlight, atmos
phere, water and tbe earth. There
should not be, thera cannot be, in tbe
name of humanity, any monopoly ol
these elements so essential to human
So far as we conld, we have attempted
to recommend a policy that will prevent
any monopoly of water in the arid re
P. A. Demons, speaking for the Rus
sian delegation, said that owing to tbe
form of government there it would not
do to present the address in the same
way as hern, but he would translate it
for use in Russia.
W. E. Miiythe, editor of the Irriga
tion Age, and one of ths most energetic
members of the committee, spoke for
those who bave favored the cession of
arid lands to tbe states, and if they had
accomplished aotning else by tbe propo
sition than that which bad been ad
vanced in the convention he hoped at
least that they had demonstrated that
tbey had acted in good faith.
"We are aware," said Mr. Smythe,
that California thought we were bent
sn stealing tbe lands. Tbe fact was,
we. despaired of wise national action and
lesired tbat if the nation would no;
ict the state might be permitted to
lo bo.
Our action, continued Mr. Smythe, in

afternoon before he could get the dele
gated seated. There waa a eerni-tropic
utanana feeling in tbe warm air and the
eastern delegatea appeared to be eotne
what under ita influence. The Address
to the People was distributed, and .-in
earnest buzz of conversation tilled the
hall, and the chairman gavo up the task
of calling to order until a half honi
more had passed. He then tbanketl the
interior department for oending Major
Powell here, and then the major toot
the stand, as he announced, to discuss
the address to tbe people. lie alluded
to tbe great work of progress in the west,
but said that the creation oi small
homes was the moot promising feature
of tbe county, and from that point of
view be would base bia remarks, lie
gave a study of rainfall, showing tbat in
the Potomac valley one half of the rain
fall is run off and evaporated. This
proposition increases aa one goes west,
the evaporation increasing: over the run
off. It ia only the run-off portion that
can be used for irrigation. The point
he made particularly was tbat there iB
not enough water, including all the
brooks^rivers and Btorm water to irri
gate all'the land. Only a email portion
of tbe arable arid land can be irrigated.
There is only a little portion of tbe great
public domain that can ever he re
claimed because of the insufficiency of
water. If all of the waters that can he
used were only for those lande now under
private ownership, there would not be
enough left for the government lande.
There is not water enough, in fact, and
there can never be enough conserved to
irrigate lands already owned by individ
uals. Not one more acre of iand should
be granted to individuals for irrigation,
for either the land now owned by the
government or tbe landa now owned by
individuals must be sacrificed one to the
other. Thia is a strong atatemeut, but
I have mado a study of the matter, and
have bad many assistants to help me,
and I am veiy sure tbat I am right.
Dr. Towers of Arizona interrupted
here and showed that enough water
went to waste down the Colorado every
year at flood time to irrigate all of Cali
Millay of Arizona here said that
Major Powell had furnished tbe figures
on which Dr. Towers's atatemeut waß
Mulbolland of Inyo said that in
Owens valley 600,000 inches of water
went to waste every winter.
Numerous other citations were made
from Major Powell's reports which it
waß thought tended to controvert his
astonishing statement,
A stormy scene followed, and the
major replied, saying that 50,000,000
acres of good land were annually given
away. In Arizona it took two acre feet
of water to irrigate the lam.!. Jfyou
put a roof over all tbe land ta gather
tbe rainfall, could you get enougli'to do
that? The rainfall was three, four or
bye inches. What would that do to ir
rigate tbat land? An acre foot is 12
inches. You could not irrigate your
land. It is a plain proposition tbat
there is not en. ugh water, as I said, to
irrigate tbe land now owned by indi
vidurls. This is a self-evident tact.
Tbe storm here broke out again, and
Chairman Emery tried in vain to shut
off some of tue Arizona delegates. At
last he got order and requested that the
major be permitted to explain.
But it would not go. Hinton of New
Mexico saeerted this statement of Major
Powell was a black eye for irrigation.
The pipers would publish his allega
tion, and it would iujure tbe interest of
the whole country.
At last the major got the floor again,
and reiterated the statement that if the
entire water supply was used in tht
lands now owned by individuols then
would not be enough. Locally there
were places where there waß a surplus
of water, bnt the proposition in the
main was correct, and was a simple
mathematical proposition that there ii
not enough water available for the arid
region to irrigate the private lands
This cannot be controverted. This if
unpleasant inlormation for you, per
haps, but it is true.
It does not matter to me whether 1
am popular or not, but I want to say tc
you tbat yon are piling up a heritage o
conflict and litigation. I am old, but
you young men will see it. I reiterate,
there is not enough water for all the
arable land, and it is a mathematical
Under thia fact it is well for you tc
consider whether it ia wise for you tc
urge the further utilization of govern
ment land for irrigation purposes.
Another storm of criticiam arose, and
a point of order was raised shutting oil
the msjor.
The major said he did not want the
floor and got a bit angry.
A flow of motions and amendments
followed, and some very rude remarks
were made about the major, but at last,
by unanimous request, he came for
ward again. *
He simply made the point that tbe
irrigable lands now in individual hands
i J should have their waters protected.
- I The catchment areas belong to the gov
' eminent, and if these should fail into
; tho hands ot individuals the present
i land owners would be deprived of tha
values of their land, but he stuck to bia
first assertion.
'fhe aridtees was then taken up by
Colonel Hinton, who proceeded to ecore
j Major l'owell until he waa called down
by the five minute limit.
Kx-Governor Sheldon cf New Mexico
then proceeded to take his whack at
i'owcil, and claimed that there was
more than enough water and that there
should bo no monopoly of it for irriga
A lot of filibustering ensued on tbe
: question of taking the address np by
paragraphs. After a half hour's waste
of time tbe reading was taken up seri
It was proposed by a delegate
I from California that the words

member from Arizona on tbe committee.

Evening Session.
The evening session was opened by
the introduction of a resolution of J. K.
; Walker of Texas to the effect that it is
; the sense of the congress that an inter
| mational darn be constructed near El
i Paso by the governments of the United
j States and Mexico to bring about an ad
; equate water supply.
Kx-Governnr Sheldon did not favor
the proposition, while on the other hand
Chairman Emery, Major Hinton and
others spoke favorably of it. Major
Hinton said the government must con
struct an interstate reservoir system.
After some minor discussion the ad
dress to tho people wob adopted, with
the exception of the paragraph relating
to tbe water in natural channels and tbe
pnragraph on state legislaCon, both of
which were referred back to the commit
tee on resolutions to report tomorrow.
Kx-Governor Gosper, who was called
to the chair on the opening oi the meet
ing, arose to introduce Major l'owell,
director of tbe geological survey. In
his reiaaiks ho said that the geological
survey was the foremost aid of irriga
Major Hinton interposed an objection
to the language of the chairman ia such
a forcible manner thatCbairman Gosper
called him down by saying:
"The remarks of tbe gentleman are
too impertinent and I will not allow it."
At tbe close of Major Powell's brief
remarks, Mr. Hinton arose and said he
did not quite understand the remarks of
the chairman, and asked if the inquiry
was impertinent.
Hinton became vehement in bis re
marks when Chairman Gosper said that
he would withdraw his remarks.
"I shall not have it withdrawn," said
Hinton. "The chair has no right to
stigmatize Anyone on the floor. I will
attend to thia later."
The chairman then said he would
'T accept no apology," said Hinton,
and hia further expressions were
drowned by the toars of tne congress.
At the close of the congress Chair
man Gosper st id that, if he had given
any olienee to his gray-headed friend
"My head is not gray. It is blacker
than yours," said Hinton, and some
body veiled for recognition to speak,
thus'sliutting off an uncalled for larce.
When the congress adjourned Gov
ernor Gosper shook hands with the
Major; they laughed over the incident
and walked out together to "call it
