being spent east of the Mississippi . river
for no other reason than that the eastern

As a matter of fact th western states

rr.nrd is not sufficient to obtain reliable
data as the discharee of streams vary as
widely as the rainfall and depend largely
upon it. It is therefore necessary to keep
up systematic measurements from year
to year. The water in the streams is a
franchise belonging exclusively to the
state to be as rigorously guarded as any
nther state Drooerty. It can be surveyed

be given away without the public reaping
In order to develop ana seme me vast
unoccupied areas, it is necessary that the
state should have at the earliest date
possible, a map to show the settler what
the country is like and indicate, the possi
bility of reclaiming the arid regions by
That the reclamation has been able to
accomplish so much in the short time
since its organization is due largely to the
factthat toooeraphic mapsof a very large
area of the country to be irrigated, were
already in existence, aud a great many
streams had already been surveyed and
measured. The Federal Government has
been liberal in its appropriation for topo
graphic surveys and for investigation of
the water supply, but the time has now
come when it would be advantageous and
nrnfitatle of the state of Oregon to ap
