The Seven teenth national irrigation congress opened its sessions here today ready to consider a proposition for the govern ment to issue $3,000,000 worth of bonds redeemable ' in one' hundred years for the development of the west.. The resolution putting forward this proposition contains the" unique offer that the government shall not appro priate a cent but derive its return from the revenues of the improve ments.

Bryan, president of the Washington state college: F. H. Newell, director of the United States reclamation service; Dr George C. Pardee, ex. Gov. of Califor nia: James J.

"Conditions, ths outgrowth of an other development of this country have forced upon us the necessity of reclaiming our waste areas and adopt ing more economical methods in utili zation." said Gov. Hay in his address of welcome today. History Repeating. "History is repeating in America the experence of the older seats in civilization. We are now turning to the countries of Europe for examples In seeking scientific and effective methods of conserving and perpetuat ing the gifts of nature upon which we depend not only for economic pro gress, but for sustenance itself. "Reclamation was used by the Chi nese forty .centuries ago. The waters of the Nile were diverted while tho pyramids were building. Irrigation is prehistoric. Doing Great Work. "It is estimated that 13.000,000 acres were irrigated last year west of the Mississippi. Forty-two millions of dollars have been expended since the formation of the United States reclam ation service. The possibilities are great. We can reclaim 75.000,000 acres of swamp land by drainage; we could secure use of 35.000,000 more by wat er courses. Since 3000 the yearly damage by floods is $255,000,000. This could largely be prevented by pro tecting the sources of the streams and by forest growth. , "Last year this association had 100 men in the field and expended $25, 000,000. At the present time, too, we are wasting 05 per cent of the lumber. We are consuming 40 cubic feet per year; the growth is 12 cubic feet. This Is not a cheerless picture only fact.''
