Where They Have Things soon start. This work Is the first real work in the construction of irrigation system for the Black Can yon. Unit by unit that magnificent tract of land will be reclaimed from the desert. The officers of the Black an t anyon district and the settlers on the tract have waited long and patiently, We hope and pray that the réclama tion service will make a new record for this tract by giving those pa tient, long-suffering people the best irrigation for the least money of] jany project in the country. They de serve it. The boards of directors, very penally Mr, Hawkes and Mr. New Port, Mr. Andrews and Mr. Cox of the l*ter board are entitled to much credit nor having continued in a long, hard llKht for help. We would not dis parage these splendid men by the faintest inference. es They cannot be disparaged. Their work will stand forever to their credit. But the man we wish to pay a passing tribute to is Mr. J. M. Thompson of this city. Y by year Mr. Thompson worked on for ear the Black Canyon. In the face of crit icism, opposition, poverty on the part of the district, Mr. Thompson contin ued on. He would work with the land owners until they were willing to g° ahead on a basis he outlined; then h* j would needs go to Washington to in j terest the reclamation service. work was unremunerative in every His re spect and yet he kept ] aged to the end. that quick to criticise as i undiscour He felt rather than He had his faith and on j saw progress, was about all. The public is as it is to forget. with Appreciation the public night and there is always someone | whisper words that create suspicion j In spite of all this, Judge Thumps 0 " never lasts long Dissension grows over ic i went on with his labor. Success ha- s arrived at last. When the history the Black Canyon comes to be written the years of toil and trouble put by Judge Thompson should not be f or " gotten. They probably will be. efforts will be buried in sweet obliv» 0 * and yet to him, more than to any 0 "* else, is due the great credit. Hi*
