It In said this year has taught the

tIon for tho distribution of tho waters!
of this vallsy cannot do what should!
be done. It Is the opinion of many I
that it is only by the creation of an I
Irrigation district, having a legal head
to it with power to hnndle the distri
bution of the waters or me vailoy, that
the greatest number of water users
served, the largest amount of crops
raised and the greatest prosperity at
tained. Those at the head of the or
ganisation believe there Is -to real rea
son why one rancher's crop Is burned
up and a total failure und lus neigh
bor across the fence raises a bumper
crop, for the water Is here. If rightly
distributed and that It Is only liy ear
nest co-operation of the witer users,
through the organisation of «in Irriga

valley can be properly developed.
