HOW TO BUILD IT.
Numers ways and plans for building
tbe canal bus beeu suggested. Some
desire to have the entire sum of money
invested iv the enterprise, owned by
eastern capitalist, others wish tho peo
pie of the valley to hold a one-third in
terest in project and boar their portion
of the expense. The Dawn has a
plan to suggest and it is this:
Allowing that it will cost (600,000 to
construct a ditch that will practically
cover all the arid land iv tho valley, we
would induce local cupital to the extent
of $200,000 which will perhaps furnish
all the necessary money to buy that
will be absolutely necessary to pay out.
This would leave $400,000 to i K > sub
scribed in v>ork and material, for all of
which stock could be issued, and in this
way hundreds of farmers could work
out r. perpetual water right when it
would be impossible for them to raise
the necessary cash to put in the ditch.
Many of our farmers say they will
give one-half of their land for water for
ihe other half, This land could be put
on the market, sold to poor deserving
men and the price paid in labor on the
ditch. This plan seems to us to be a
very leasable one.
What wo wish is that the ditch be
built, owned and operated by the peo
ple of Kittitas county. This can be
done aud why uot do it?
The high line ditch is a leasable
proposition and the building of it means
millions to Ellensburg' and tbe county.
There Us plenty of capital in Kittitas
county to build a high line ditch if only
the proper course is adopted Let la
bor and capital bo combined and the
scheme will move off like clock work.
We fear the completion of th* mid
dle ditch with all it complication,
would very materially cripple tlie val
ley, covering as it would, only 2.'!,000
acres, 14,000 of which has more or less
water now, while a high line ditch
would cover 05.000 acres, including
every acre that the middle ditch would

HER 'DATS WORK.
The maiden woke at early dawn
And split her features with a yawn.
Then slowly closed her facirl gap
Aud took her usual "Beauty nap."
At nine she yawi.ed again and rose
And lazily assumed her clothes.
At ten tho breakfasted, then made
A change of gown to finer grade.
At two she ate her luncheon, then
Went up and changed her gown again.
At five her hair she bad to fix
And dressed for dinner called at six.
Picked up a novel just at seven
And read till quarter past eleven.
Then marked the place to which she'd
And took a bath and went to bed.
A lazy girl? Nay. nay! Just pause

Her papa was a money king,
'Twas all sbe had to do, poor thing.

UNDER CAREY ACT
Eight Applications Made for
Arid Lands in Oregon.
Eight different companies have per
fected applications for arid land under
the Carey arid land act. These appli
cations cover nearly 200,000 acres, all in
Eastern Oregon. Many more applica
tions aro in course of preparation and
have been forwarded to the State Lan
Office, but owing to some defect have
not been placed on file.
By the provisions of the ( 'arey act the
Federal Government offers to donate to
the state 1,000,000 acres of land when
the same shall have been reclaimer 1 .
The state, in turn, gives the land to
settlers upon the same terms. In fact,
tho state acts chiefly as a medium
through which the man who reclaims
lands gets his title from the Govern
, ment. Applications for arid laud are
made to the State Land Hoard. After
surveys have been made and a map tiled,
the state enters into a contract with
the applicant whereby the state agrees
to convey tbe title upon his reclaiming
tbe laud as required by tho Federal
Government. Tho applicant must pay
all expenses of drawing papers, making
surveys, reclaiming the land and mak
ing final proofs to the General Land
Office. When the contract is made with j
the applicant the state applies to the
United States for tbe laud described in
the application filed by the man who in
tends reclaiming the land. The Gov
ernment transfers the land to the state
when proof is made that the land has
been reclaimed, and the state tben
makes the conveyance to the settler.
By the provisions of the state law i.o
settler can acquire more than 100 acres.
Those persons, associations or corpora
tions who reeluim more than ltiu acres
do not secure title in fee simple to the
land. They are given possession of the
land until it is conveyed to settlers,
have a lien on the land fur the cost of
reclamation, aud have the privilege of
charging water rates to settlers, the
rates to be lixed by the State Land
Board. The settler who wishes to pur
chase land which has been reclaimed
must pay to the reclaimers the cost of
reclamation. Tho state gets nothing
from the land, and bears none of tbe
Summons by Publiction.
