Ho criticised tho action of tho State Board of Irrigation for allowing tho Patterson claim without tho puyinent of a dollar when the stato should have received $11,000 for tho privilege. Ho said he was much hurt that tho board had not notified him of tho hearing and said wucn ho was stato engineer ho hail denied alt applications of the kind. It was hero that State Knglneer Price "called" tho gentleman for Insinuating that he and thn board had gone beyond their rights In the matter and asked turn If he was so anxious to block the grant ing of tho extension why ho had tut taken advantage of tho sixty days by law and protested the notion of tho board. Price then flashed on Howell a report made by the Board of Irrigation when Howell whs str.te engineer, which con tained n statement signed by Howell himself that he had denied tho applica tions referred to on orders of tho board. Price asked him why ho was claiming all credit for tho action when tho record showed It wns tho action, of the- board and that he was only following their or ders. When asked by the commlttco to sug gest the best way to proceed, Mr. Howell said that now was a bad tlmo to refer the matter to the people, for "certuln elements" had educated them Into the be lief they were not competent Ho would have a commission appointed by tho gov ernor with power to Investigate the cost, and then in connection with the state university proceed to educate tho .people to what they ought to do.
