teenth annual meeting of tho Natlonul

Dr. F. II. NoWell, director ot tho
United States rectematlon service, It.
P. Tenle, in chnrjru of Irrigation sta
tistics of tho bureau ot census, and
Senator William K. Ilornh ot Idaho
were tho chief speakers for this alter,
noon An encouraging mcssago from

President llenjamln A- Fowlor,
speaking nt tho wcnlng of tho N'lno-
tocnth Annual Irritation congress, ad
vocated nmondHMCita to tho nntional

Hon ot swamp atnris as two ot tho
most ImiHjrtnnt, matters (or dlscusslou
by tho conxreec.
"More than nlno yt-ara have passed
slnco tho mttlotwl, irriKatlon net be
came n law nnd tho reetamatlon serv
Ico was orajanlxod," said President
Fowler In taking up tho subject of tho
proposed amendment. "As anticipat
ed by Ita friends, tho act has In ptac
ttco demonstrated soiuo weaknesses,
which could not ' bo 'foreseen, but
ought now to lie corrected.
'!. Tlio tlmo H hi It nt tun yoara in

"2. Theoretically, Irrigated lands
under any government project ought
to furnish tho host of security for con
aervatlvo mortgage loans at low In
terest. Hut outnldo capital hesitates
to offer Itself for auch loans bccnuiu
in case of foreclosure, tho act oper
ates against the mortgagee and pre
vents him as a non-roslduut from se
curing title.
This ought to bo remedied In tho
Interest of both sides.
"3. Kxpuricncc has xhown Hint
when any project Is moro than half
completed, ncrciso property has so
appreciated In valuo that thu oppor
tunity for tho speculator us such or

nnd tho tlmo tins come when tho own-
or should uo longer bu required to
Ilvo on thnse lands."
RcgnrdltiK tho reclamation ot swainn
lauds, PrOsiuunt Fowlor said In part:
"in addition to tho land area avail
able for reclamation through irriga
tion, thoro nro about clhty million
acres of swamp ami overflow landt

cated that drainage projects would

"It Is clear that orto of tho great

This far no attempt has boon
made to formulate a policy looking to
