Briefly, the object of the meeting w.as to get the farmers to agrci to the following conditions: 1st. Water owners holding prior ity rights of 1868 or earlier should surrender their water for this season to potato men holding a late water right. 2nd. In consideration of this sacri fice such potato men must pay a tax of $ltl per acre, the money to be used as a fund for a water storage system •krd. Any man holding a '68 or ear lier right sufficient to irrigate his po tatoes shall not be subject to the tax. If his right be insufficient to irrigate all his potatoes he shall pay the tax on all the crop not irrigated by it. 4th. Any land having more than enough water for the potatoes on it shall turn over the surplus. 5th. No water shall be Used to irri gate alfalfa. The committee found that the grain is nearly all irrigated, which leaves potatoes as the only direct food crop to be considered. It will be remembered that a few days before the last meeting a com mittee of live men was appointed to make a survey of Mason Valley to determine the land most needing wat er. \t the opening of the meeting Mr. Frank Stickney reported for the f committee, first. there are about 1100 acres of potatoes in Mason Valley; Second, there is not more than e nottgh water in the river t irrigate them, Third, if /lie full water appropriations of ISON and earlier were demanded some 400 acres would dry up and many more would he insufficiently watered. *.Vsi»tant State Engineer W'. \\ . Coleman reported that by his own stirs ey about 60 cubic second feet of water are flowing into Mason Valley, some 35 feet on East and 25 feet in West Walker. Joe W ilson, Jr. then reported that the Thurtcll find ings show eleven ranches holding Vat er rights of 1N68 or earlier which can by law. take the entire flow. Prof. Charles Xorcross, representing the Food Administration urged the prior ities to surender their water for the potatoes, not as a personal favor but as a patriotic act. Speaking for this plan, he said. " I lie day has passed, when a man gun consider his food crop as wholly his own. It belongs primarily to the nation. Potatoes are a valuable food and the country's crop is short. There must not he any wasted nor should any he allowed to dry up it' water is available. In return, it is only fair that the potato men, accomodated in this way should show their apprec iation by paying $16 per acre of their crop, such money to he used for water storage or other purposes of general advantage.

NITER TROUBLES OR CH UB Recently Governor Boyle. VV. \V. Coleman, Assistant State Engineer and Hal Lemmon, of the ftod Com mission and Erl. Sweet land visited Dayton and other river points to the east of Carson Valley. There fs a general sqtwbble over what little water is passing down the river channel, ^t is nbt enough to water any one farm'let alone the .score or more below Dayton that de pend on wat^r from, the river. Most erf the rivet- (farmer)- own water ttghts, which have been estab lished by law and suits. In spite of this fact there is no water to row about this season. The Governor’? party will endeavor to arrange some kind of distribution that the potato crop may be saved. Some of the farmers insist on water ing their hay fields,’and as there is not enough water to supply both pro ducts one or the other will have tp go shy. One look at the river below Dayton will convince anyone that the task of distribution will be one that will not only take a diplomat, but one versed in strategy. Should the Governor get away with this deal and distribute water where the creek 3 dry he should be promoted to the position of second in command to General Foch. That the situation is critical to those who have crops in there is no denying, tyit there was a lack of snow fall and no rains have assisted. The shortage is not from one far mer's robbing another but nature's failure to come through with the goods last winter. Along Carson River there will be a temporary relief to the Dayton far triers, as the Lloyd Dam is to he lowered, thus furnishing a limited supply to the spud farmers down the river, but as all farms are -by then is little chance of much relief. EAST WALKER FARMERS WON’T LOOSEN UP ON PRIORITIES Ed. Sweetlaud. who lias been -ta tioived on the East W alker river dis trilmting water according to the ne cessity of the situation, has return ed to Carson City for instructions i While patriotism worked for a time, and the man with the prior right. ; dating back to the early sixties, al lowed hi- water to run past his door to the new neighbor, he has finally . announced that lie is going to water his fields.'and is preparing to do so. With about a dozen such propositions under his belt. Mr. Sweetlaud. decid ed it was time to move to headquart ers. After looking the situation over it was decided to apportion waters ac cording to the priority. Instead of dealing water out for war foods.-puds and grain, the prior locator will be served. It is anticipated that the rights ranging from 186<1 to about INtiS w ill he first served, while the new lo cator will go without. The sentiment of foot! stuffs will not longer be con sidered.—Carson News. THOMPSON BRANCH A. R. C.
