K-jplyliiK to a question regarding tbe
probuble effect of the recent decision of
tho supreme couit In tho matter of the
case of Ilia Crawford Company against
Jlathnway at at on tho Irritation IntorcstH
of the Btuto, C. I). Channel, statu eusiuccr
and secretary of the Suto Hoard of lrrl
cation, in at) 0 the following statement:
"Thoro uro only, two questions In this
enso that aro of gJncral Intercut, tho con
stitutionality of tho IrrlRatlon act ol 1SD5
and tho common law rights of riparian
"Tho appellant In this case, tho Craw
ford company, contended that tbat por
tion cf the act which erects a Hoard of
Irrigation, Hiving It exclusive Judicial pow
ers, Is In derogation of section 1, arllclo
vl of iho constitution, In that tho leclsla
turo, by said net, eousht to erect n now
Judicial tribunal In placo of ono of the
regularly constituted courto of tho state.
"The court did not pass upon tho con
stitutionality of iho law, but In dlscusslnrc
tbat portion of tho act tho court said the
Eonrd of Irrigation was ono of tho In
ducements for Its nitesago and Is so Inter
wocn with tho whole act as to mako It
Impossible to declare this portion Invalid
without cffoclliiK tho destruction of tho
rcmntnder of tin: act.
"Tho cppollants contended also that tho
act of 1877 (sectlcns 47, 48 and 93a, Compiled
Btatules of 1807) modified tho common law
rulo relating to riparian rights and cstab-
Unhid i lie scparnto ownership of land and
water In this slate. The court holds that
this act did not affect the rights of riparian
owners and tho common law rule which ob
tained then now exists.
Dortrlur nf Common l.nrr.
"Under the common law doctrlno, In Its
mo3t gencr.il form, all property In water
courses Is held sacred to the common use
allko of all tho riparian owners upon their
borders, as un Incident to tho ownership
of tho noil; that tho nature of their owner
ship of tho water Itself Is simply usufructu
ary and that each proprietor may reason
ably u:)o the water for any purpose as It
passcB through or by his land, but always
provided that ho must, after having used
It, return It without substantial diminu
tion In quantity or nny material change In
quality to ltB natural bed or channel bo
foro It leaves his own land, bo that It will
reach his neighbor In Its full, original and
natural condition.
"It can bo readily understood that If this
definition of a riparian right applies In
this cobo tho Irrigation Interests of the
stnto will bo very seriously affected by tho
ueclslon of tho court.
"Tho stato legislature at Its approaching
session should add an amendment to tho
Irrigation law, clearly defining tho rights
of riparian owners and limiting their rights
to so much of tho natural flow of the
stream as Is necessary for domestic uses,
Ir cludlng stock water, nnd recognizing the
vested rights In power plants.
"Jo glvo you an Idea of tho magni
tude of tho Interests Involved I would
stato In this connection that water has
been appropriated for nbout 1,600,000 acres
of-Iand and that the Irrigation works, con
structed to date represent an Investment
of probably more than J5.000.000. Add to
this tho Increaso In tho value of Irrigated
lands, duo to the construction of thrso
works, which Is not less than $15,000,000.
and the Incrcnso In the valuo of grazing
lands contiguous to Irrigated districts,
which cannot bo closely estimated, but .Is
certainly several millions, and you can
form some .Idea of tho valuo of Nebraska's
Irrigation Interests."

WASHINGTON, Nov. 29. Tho annual re
port ot Secretary Wilson of tho Agricul
tural department, made public today, be
gins with a complimentary reference to
the work' of his predecessors, which has
brought tho department to Its present stato
of cfllclcney. The secretary behoves appro
priations for tho department should bo ro
garded as an Investment, for the rciuon
tbat they made direct returns therefor by
adding to tho wealth ot the country.
Important extensions of the weather bu
reau havo been made during tho year.
Much stress Is laid upon tho continued
Improvement of the forecast service and
tho value of Its warnings. Tho sccrotary
p Hits nut that, notwithstanding the great
number ot craft plying tho Cult ot Mexico
nt tho tlmo of the Oalvoston storm, tho
warnings wcro so timely that there was
n'i disaster upon tho open waters. Sue
ccoaful experiments have been made with
wifeless telegraphy.
During tho quarantlno season ot 1S99
over 1,000,000 cattlo wore moved under
the supervision of tho bureau from tho
district Infected with the southern cattle
tick. In Texas alone over 317,000 cattlo
wcro Inspected for shipment to other sec
tions. Tho sheep Industry has suffered
greatly from sheep scab and much tlmo
nnd attention have been given to securing
Us control and eradication. Results so far
are encouraging nnd tho secretary believes
that a few more years of earnest work
will effectually cradlcnto tho disease. Over
1,800,000 sheep were Inspected and nearly
627,000 dipped under tho supervision of tho
Still FlRhtlnv Host Cholera.
Tho work of preparing set urn for treat
ing hog cholera and swine plague and ex
periments in treatment therewith are con
tinued, with results' which, while they do
not justify definite conclusions as yet, are
sufficiently encouraging to Justify continued
experiments, Including some on entliely
now lines. Over 1,000,000 doses of blackleg
vaccine havo been distributed during the
year. Summarized reports of 2,000 cattle
owners testify to Its efficiency. Whereas
u loss of 10 to 26 per cent of young stock
Is reported In the district whero blackleg
provnlla, tho loss whero vaccination has
been tried has been less than ono-half of
1 per cent. Considerable space Is given to
tho consideration of tuborculosls, "the most
prevalent and most destructive disease
affecting mankind and tho domesticated an
imals." A great Increase In the dlscaso
Is noted In the principal countries of Eu
rope especially, unforunatoly. In 'those
whence American breeders desire to ob
tain animals for Improving their Btock.
Experimental shipments of dairy products
are still continued and shipments ot butter
have been extended to Cuba and Porto
Rico. The secretary earnestly recommends
an Inspection of dairy products designed
for export.
Food Adnlterntlon.
National legislation on tho subject of
food adulterations Is urged as essential to
supplement tho work dono by tho several
states. Elaborate work In tho Investiga
tion of food adulteration has been con
tinued. Very little horso meat seems to
be' sold In the United States, whether under
Its own name or any other name'.
Most satisfactory reports are receive!
from California as the result of tho
entomological work In tho Introduction ot
tho Insect which fertilizes the Smyrna Qg.
In ono locality more than six tons ot
Smyrna tigs have been produced. Tfc re
sult will bo to mako America a grand com
petitor In tho fig trade of tho world's mar
ket. Secretary Wilson cites tho Introduction
of wheats from Russia, Hungary and Aus
tria, greatly exceeding In yield our present
varieties and points out that If, as tho ro-
sult of these Introductions tho wheat of
the United States would bo Increased by
but one bushel per aero, thts would mean
nt tho farm price for wheat in 1899, an ad
dition of $20,000,000 to tho Income ot our
As a result of experiments conducted in
Texas under the supervision of the division
of agrostology the grazing of pastures has
been so much Improved that, where three
yearn ugo tuoy were estimated as capable
of supporting one steer to sixteen ucres,
they will now. maintain In good condition
ono steer to eight acres, a gain of 100 per
Dcliclan Hnre l uanerou.
Warning Is given ot the possible danger
of tho Introduction and dissemination of
the Belgian hare nnd tho destruction of
nratrlo dogs has become n practical ques
tion of crcat Interest to the farmers.
Tho secretary notes a keener ana wiaer
nubile Interest In forestry.
The total requests lor wonting pians ior
forest preserves at the closo of tho year
exceeded D0.000.000 acres, of which 2,500,000
was Drlvato land.
There is much Inquiry regarding better
roads and better methods of building them
nnd much work has been done In tho las
year In building roads.
Considerable spaco ts given in me report
to the work of the experiment stations.
Progress Is noted In Alaska. It Is odmltted
that Alaska can nover become an agricul
tural country, but tho problem tbo depig
ment has undertaken to work out Is to do-
tevmlne whether sufficient agriculture may
bo developed In Alaska to form an Importnnt
subsidiary industry to aid In tho develop
nicnt of raining, flshorles and lumbering
Tho secretary believes experiment stations
should bo established In Hawaii and Porto
lllco. Much consideration Is given In tho
report to the Irrigation Investigations,
which cover especially two general lines of
investlcatlon. namely, tho study of tho laws
ond Institutions relating to Irrigation In
different regions, and secondly, the doterml
nation of tho actual uso made of Irrigation
InventlKntlon of IrrlKntlon Plan
Eight typical streams In different parts
of California havo been thoroughly studied
with reference to the conditions un'dor
which tho water for Irrigation Is owned,
distributed and used. Similar mvesttga
tlons on a smaller scale have been made
In Utah, Colorado and elsewhere. Interest
In the use of Irrigation to supplement
rainfall In the humid regions Is growing
and valuable Investigations have been un
dertaken In Missouri and Wisconsin.
The secretary calls attention to the fact
that on tho supply of water for Irrigation
nnd Its equitable distribution depends tho
permanent expense of civilized life in one
third of tho nrca of tho union. Through
this vast region questions relating to lrrl
gat ion are vital to the ultimate solution of
Its problems nnd must bo found not only
In state leglclatlon, but In tbe action of
tho national goverumont.
Under the head ot the section of foreign
markets the report says that tho study of
markets nbroad with special reference to
extending tho demands therein for tho
agricultural producers of- the United States
has been prosecuted with zeal and lntclll
gence. Tho rapid growth of our export
trade to the Orient In recent years Is most
striking. Five years ago our total ship
mrnts of domestic merchandise to Asia and
Oceanlca were valued at $43,000,000, of
which only $9,700,000 were agricultural, In
1900 our export trade with the Orient
mounted to $107,000,000, of which $30,000,000
worth was farm produce,
During the last fiscal year Cuba, Porto
Rico, the Hawaiian Islands and tho Phil
ippines furnished a market for $45,000,000
worth of our products. Five years ago the
sea islands took but $13,000,000 worth.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 29. Commander
Homphlll, head of tho naval board which
conducted the trial of the torpodo boat
Stockton yesterday, has telegraphed tho
Navy department from Annapolis the fol
lowing report of the results of the trial:
"The Stockton mado approximately 25
knots for two consecutive hours. Vessel's
displacement at time of trial about 200 tons.
Performance ot machinery generally satis

down forty minutes after trial began.
Speed was computed from tho readings ot
the port counters as checked by the speed
over tho measured mile course. Stockton
snlled for Richmond. Contractor reserves
nil rights pending conference with tho de

tract was to show n minimum speed ot 26
knots. In case of deficiency It may be re
jected, or a deduction may bo mado by the
government from the contract price. It Is
bolloved that the board will recommend that
the Navy department accept tho boat on

tho contractors will caro to go to the ex-

BOSTON, Nov. 29. Th Interesting action
In tho Intcrnatlon Seamen's union conven
tion 'today won tbo adoption ot a report
bearing upon tho Inducement; or rather
tho lack of the same, offered' to American
boys to go to sea. Tho rcpart Is in part:
"No one disputes the fact that American
boya do not seek the Ben for1 n living, nor
ts It disputed that In tho early history of
th' country It was otherwise
"tomo improvements have been granted
and for these tho seaman are thankful, but
they tiro not sufficient to causo tho Ameri
can, with his Ideas of Individual liberty and
comparatively high standard of living, to
bocomo a seaman. Nor will any ono ac
quainted with tho facts ot tho seamen's
Ufa blamo him.
"Whllo the sailor, who simply refuses
to fulfill a contract of labor, may, In a
foreign port, In tho foreign trade, be pur
sued, recaptured and put on board the
vessel which he left, like a runaway slave
or an escaped criminal, the liberty-loving
American boy will not chooso the sea
faring profession as a means ot earning
a living.
"Whllo part of tho wages 'signed for'
must bo paid to some 'crimp' under tbe
name of 'advance wages' In order to ob
tain employment, or for tho same reason
he must consent to sign away his right to
rccolve some part of wages In 'ports of
call,' no ono hns any right to expect that
nny largo number of high-spirited lads will
go to sen and remain there.
'Wo note with Joy that this view ts
gaining strength In this ns well aa In Eu

this Important subject, will pass bill II. R.
