Governor Hunt and State Engineer ; Ross have been working very earnestly to secure favorable consideration for the adoption of the proposed park aa j the four townships involved are abso- j lutely necessary for the success of the I ; j irrigation scheme.-Evening Capital j News. AN IRRIGATION KILL. An irrigation bill is under consider ation by the iduho legislature which prO|>osea to cure many of the evils of the existing laws. It is In the main the same as Wyoming's irrigation Act which has given such general satisfac tion in that state for years and years. The first proposition is to divide the state into three water divisions with a superintendent for each division. Each superintendent is empowered toeppolnt water commissioner* under him as necessity demands. The bill provides when the occasion demands water shall be distributed in sections or "rotation." It says: "The public waters when as will i I used for irrigation purpose* shall he distributed in such a manner reduce all loss from every cause to a minimum and in order that the highest i possible duty in Irrigation of the vol nmn flowing in streams when at their low stage muv he attained, it shall be the duty of tin: water commissioner to give to each and every user of water the use of a serviceable irrigating * head of such size and at such intervals as Is adapted to his soil and j crops." The stale engineer heartily endorses the bill. Governor Hunt has invited Gove nor Wells of Utah to visit him at Boise. If he accept it will be a good time to amend word . ! hat tho governor of North Carolina said to the governor of South Carolina by substituting the short' for 'long.' mm Traitors Itoth.
