"Exclusive of Alaska and (unty ing possessions," said Mr. F. H. Newell, Hydroghrapher of the Geo logical Surve', in speaking of what is possible in the United States in the way of irrigation reclamation, "one-third of the whole United States is vacant and at the disposal of Congress. For the most part it is open to homestead entry and settlement, and much of it consists of land possessing great fertility except for the lack of water. In different sections are to be found mountain masses from which Come perennial streams whose waters are now used to some extent to moisten the parched lands. At intervals there occur local storms or floods inundating large tracts. There is available water for the rec lamation of a considerable portion of this arid land if it could all be saved and put to use. Individual Effort. Work has been undertaken by individuals and by corporations to construct ditches, canals and reser voirs to supply the lack of mois ture. As a rule the smaller works taking water from the perennial streams have been not only success ful but sources of great profit to the owner; the larger works, how ever, almost equally without excep tion, have proven financial failures and their owners have become bankrupt. The great works, built in the hope of securing a certain and permanent revenue drawn from the farmer have impoverished the owners, and the latter unwillingly have become benefactors of the public. The General Public the Gainer.

The Department will be repre sented by several of its scientists, and to what they will have to say I invite your special attention.. Thru its search for economic plant that will thrive with little water, thru its studies in the use of water for plants that need more, thru its soil investigation, its forests work, and in many other ways, the De partment of Agriculture is working at the problems which you are met to consider. These problems are national in their scope, and it is most fitting that they shonld be studied by the agencies of the National Government. Mi.

The waste of water in floods and the waist of forests by fiio are parallel losses, each contrary to the be3t interests of the nation at large, and each preventable by well-known means. "Save the Forests and Store the Floods," is an appiopri- I ate motto for your Congress. The vast development which you are planning can become per manent only by the junction of wise conversation with energy ; and the natural resources, which have cost you nothing, must be protect ed and husbanded with the same trained care which you are making ready to bestow upon vast systems of artificial works for irrigation. - Educate the Nation. The chief dangers which threat en your plans one the failure to secure the building of these great works, the other the failure to pro tect the forests from which your waters came are best met, like most of the dangers which threaten our country, by the broad diffusion of wise principles and ways, of thought among the people. The two sister organizations which are striving for the objects you have in view, The National Irrigation Association and the American Forestry Association, are perhaps the most useful agents at your command for this purpose. TJsa and support them to the full, and see to it that in every city, town, and village, East and West, the. peo ple understand the vital interest nfi the whole nation in the protection and wise use of the forest and the stream. the Inetf ohtaint'd 1.. it. :. .1 u. . .
