WOOD RIVER TIMES
HATLEY. IDAHO.
SATURDAY ......................AUGUST SI), 1887
HEYA1)A'S TILLABLE LANDS,
Suveyor Geueral Irish, of Nevada,
has just made his annual report, in
which he estimates that 31,000 square
miles of land may be brought into
cultivation by the use of waste waters
and artesian wells for irrigation.
That area is nearly half as large as
Iowa; it is five times as large as Con
necticut, ten times as large as Dela
ware, more than twice as large as
Massachusetts, New Hampshire or
New Jersey, and nearly twenty times
as large as Rhode Island. As the
latter State has a population of 350,
000 souls, there is no good reason
why Nevada should not, in time, have
a population of several millions, whioh
oould be properly supported by tho
produots of her farms and mines.
Nevada is therefore not the sterile,
uninhabitable region which we of
Idaho have all along thought it was;
she can, therefore, get along very well
without taking from the Gem of the
Mountains any portion of her com
paratively limited area.
Most of the government land lo
cated in other States and Territories
having been taken up, only the great
New Northwost and Nevada remain
open to the poor homesteader. A
few years henoe this faot alone will
induce suoh a flow of immigrants to
Idaho and Nevada that the settlers
there will not desire to enlarge or
contract their territorial limits.
THE SCHOOL LAW.
Following is a copy of the school
law, as passed at the last session of
the Idaho Legislature. It is known
as Section 672 of the Revised Stat
utes. It is published for general in
