Idaho Irrigation Company ha3 Reached
its Limit in Reclamation of New
Land in Opinion of State Official.
Further sale of water rights by the
Idaho Irrigation company are prohib
ited by Reclamation Commissioner W.
(i Swendsen, in an order issued Satur
<tay. The company was instructed to
appear before the reclamation com
tnissioner May 20th to show caus e if
possible, why the order shall not be
made permanent.
Action to this effect was taken by
Commissioner Swendsen upon his de
eision, after an examination of availa
ble data and records pertaining to the
water supply for the lands embraced
within the Idaho Irrigation company's
project, that the water supply of the
company is sufficient only to properly
irrigate and reclaim lands now sold to
bona fide settlers and upon which con
tracts are now outstanding.
No Water Available
According to Commissioner Swend
sen's findings there is not available,
after provisions of existing contracts
have been fulfilled, any water for lands
now unsold, or for land? to which
shares of stock or water contracts now
in the hands of the Idaho Irrigation
company, M. R Kays, trustee, or any
other person or persons may be applied
Continuing, the order says: "This
order shall be effective forthwith and
continue in force until my further or
der. And it is further ordered that
the 20th of May at the hour of 10 a.
m., at Boise, be and the same is here
by fixed as the time and place when
and /where the Idaho Irrigation com
pany, limited, may, if it so desire, ap
pear before me and show cause, if any
they have, why said order shall not
be made permanent."
All persons using citv water for
sprinkling lawns or gardens are hereby
notified that the hours for sprinkling
are from 5 to 10 o'clock p m

favorable for crop growth and for all

Desiccating winds robbed the soil of
moisture and in many sections of the

was done
