The future of Colorado’s agricu t ural development and the growth of all its cities aud towns depends, more than on anything olse, on its ability to secure an adequate water supply. In the East, where natural condi tions are different, this is not well understood, and the opposition of the irrigation bill arose largely from that fact. But in the West, and particularly in Colorado, the dire re suits which would follow a shortage of water are tully appreciated, and cons* quently the subjects of forest preservation and irrigation are be ginning to receive the attention they deserve. In a petition to the Secretary of the Interior, drawn up by Mr. Henry Michel sen, inspector of forestry, the situation is set fourth clearly aud succinctly. The object of the peti tion is to secure the withdrawal from entry of additional lands at the head waters of steams. The results which follow the destruction of the forests are summarized as follows: “The first result is the filling of reservoirs and irrigating cnnals through the additional amounts of silt brought down by the streams. I The second result is the drying up of streams aud consequent falling off’ of water supply during tin* latter part of the season. A third result is a decrease in precipitation iu the arid regions generally, and a fourth result is a more rapid and greater , evaporation from the soil in the de I forested area-*.’’ \ It is to be hoped that Secretary LAMAR.
