IRRIGATION IN THE WEST.
Eastern People Are Being Edu
cated on This Question.
The following is from the Kao Francisco
Representative Newlands of Nevada
baa contributed to the New York Times
aa instructive article on "Irrigation in
tbs West,” which will doubtless have a
good affect in educating Eastern public
opinion on tbesubjsct. Mr. Newlands,
from his long service in Washington, is
familiar with the objections made by
Eastern Representatives to the policy of
irrigation, and he is therefore able to di
rect bis argument especially to the points
on which the East needs enlightment. In
that respect this article is a valuable con
tribution to the discussion of the subject,
and may prove even more effective than
a speech in the House itself.
Tbs first issue with which the writer
deals is that raised by the question,
"What right has the West to demand
Government aid in this matter?" He an
swers simply that the Government is the
owner of almost all the arid lands, having
in its possession of arid and semi-arid
lands upward of 1100,000,000 acres; that it
is the doty of the Government to fit this
land for settlement and cultivation by
conserving the snow and flood waters and
constructing such ditches and canals as
an necessary to bring water within reach
of settlers. In making such improve
ments the Government will not be wast
ing money, nor giving it away, for the
lands when improved will be more valu
able than in their present condition.
Moreover, the work cannot be effectively
or economically done by private parties
It is therefore strictly a governmental
task, one which is in the truest sense na
tional, since it will benefit lbs East as well
as the West.
Noting the Eastern objection to voting
money out of the national treasury for the
enterprise, Mr. NewlanJs says the bill
now pending before Congress provides
(or establishing an arid land reclamation
fund out of the receipts from sales of
lands in the arid region, and adds: "In
this way a revolving fund is created out of
the sale of tbe lands reclaimed, which is
applied to new work, and thus, in the
end, the West will reclaim itself. The
Hecretary of the Interior can make no con
tract for irrigation works unless the
mooeys therefor are in the fund. Thus
the arid region will be reclaimed without
taxation of the general public."
One of tbe points upon which the East
ern people moat need enlightenment is
that relating to the effect the opening up
of tbe new era for home-seekers will have
upon Eastern farmers. Over aud over
again it baa been said that the irrigation
of arid land will serve no other purpose
than that of encouraging competition to
the East and injuring Eastern landed in
terests. Upon that issue Mr. Newhmds
says: "It might aa well he contended
that the people of the original thirteen
States suffered from Western develop
ment as that the eighty millions of |>eo
pie now occupying this country will suf
fer from the development of the arid re
gion. The arid region will simply furnish
a market for Eastern products. It will
not compete with the Eastern or Middle
Western farms, because in the northern
part of the arid region cultivation will be
confined almost entirely to alfalfa, which
is very useful in the fattening of cattle,
and in the southern region cultivation
Will be confined largely to the citrus
frnits and other products of a semi-tropi
cal character. It has only to be borne in
mind that the entire area capable of re
clamation does not exceed (>0,000,000
acres, and that thia area will only equal
ths area of the two States of Iowa and
Illinois. If a nation of a few millions of
people did not suffer from the develop
ment of Iowa and Illinois, how can it be
contended for a moment that a country
with 80,000,000 of people can suffer from
the development of the arid region ?”
To Californians it may seem strange
that iaauea of this kind have to be argued
over time alter time. It is, however,
not easy to educate public opinion on a
subject to which it is comparatively in
different. Campaigns of popular educa
tion are always long and sometimes tire
some. This one, however, is going for
ward at last with gratifying speed. In
deed it is not improbable that the irriga
tion bdl may be passed by the present
