Believed Decision Will Make Agreement Possible. Priori ty of Appropriation Will Govern. By Robert B.

Winslow, Arizona the Federal government and result !in the speedy development of, the ; great river for flood control, in iga ! tion and power development. Old Question Settled In its decision in the famous Wy oming-Colorado suit to test the rights cf Wyoming to power rights in the Colorado River, through its feeders, the court decided elemental questions ! of law which have been in eontrov | ersy for years and which until clear- I ed by the judgement of the highest I court in the land prevented early ! and easy agreement between the | States interested and the Federal i government in reaching a distribu ! tion basis for the water and power rights of the great Colorado. Rights of Priority The Supreme Court found: First—That as between two States recognizing the law r of water-power appropriation, prior appropriation in point of time governs. In other ■ i words, whichever State first approp- 1 riated power rights of the water flowing through two or more States j the law of power ap- j propriation had the senior and prior right to such power. , Second —That all power rights on such river as the Colorado not yet appropriated by the respective Slates . remain within the Federal power and jurisdiction. Third—The contention of Colorado ■ that it as a State was entit’ed to • all the power and water that fell within the State and found its way into the river was untenable and - therefore disallowed by the court. 5 Fourth —The contention of Colora > do that the productivity of the acre . in Colorado with the use of acre i feet of water was greater than an - acre of land under the same condi tions, in Wyoming was found by the court to be without merit and was • disallowed on the ground that the > citizens of Wyoming were allowed [ in law the same right to production - per acre as in Colorado and the con • tention of better use on the part of Colorado would not be fair in the distribution of water. Relieve Way Cleared s As all seven of the States in the! ' Colorado River Commission adhere 1 to the law of appropriation of pow er rights, it is believed by those best informed on the problem of. the Col • orado River that this decision will : pave the way for an agreement as between the States and the Federal government to the share of each in the water of the Colorado River, and will result in an early movement for a unified and aggressive develop ment of the great natural resources of the stream on the threefold basis. First, conservation of flood water and the prevention of flood damage by proper controls and storage; sec ond, the allocation of water for ir rigation of vast acreage in the dif ferent States on a mutually agreed basis; third, a concrete and unified system of power development with each of the seven States, and the Federal government, all secured by allocated minimum and maximum a mounts of power on a sliding scale las the development of power pro j gresses. No decision of the Supreme Court !on the water-power development of ithe West is more far-reaching than the decision today, and if it is cor rectly interpreted by the power and water experts in Washington, it means that the development of the Colorado River is vastly advanced in time and simplified beyond cal culation. o Call on Us For Anything; in PRINTING Winslow Mail 112 WEST SECOND STREET painter, w elding a brush dripping with protective McMurtry Mixed Paint.
