Colonel C. F. S. Wood makes
the following comment on
Robert van (Jilse's letter which
occupied two and a half columns
in the Nyssa Sun:
It seems to nie Mr. van Qiloi
presents his view of the case in
I very temperate ami courteous
way. I agree with him that
J'.i'l grants have all been grafts
and that it would be a good
thing to coniftl in some wav

will favor any Company who
will bring water to arid lands.

rushed into a field and made a
factional light against govern
ment or any other occupation of
that field though the govern

gave only one or two criticisms
of the contract. It seems to me
it is open to many possibly I

feel very strongly toward the

keep water from the land.
From what is known of it how
ever the Boise Futcrprisc is the
one which lirst hegan to try

I think every effort siiould be
