Pacific laud grant. The case was that
of Peter and Henry Nelson, who located
upon unsurveycd land within the
Northern Pacific grant in the then Ter
ritory of Washington in 18S1. This was
after the railroad company had filed its
general map showing that its projosed
line, but before it had filed its map of
definite location. In the opinion hand
ed down today it was held that the title
of the settlers was better than that of
the railroad company, and that until
the definite map was filed Congress had
contro of the lands w ithin the grant regardless-of
the general map.
In a dissenting opinion Justice Brewer
said the opinion, reserves the judgement
of the court of 20 years ago, by w hich
the Interior Department had ever since
been controlled in dealing with disputes
between the railroad company and set

IRR1QA flON WORKS IN THE NORTH
Extent of the Arid Lands, to be
Washington, D. C, Jan. 29, 1903.
Special to tbe Plaindkauib.
The acceptance by Congress of the
principal of federal aid in the construe
tion of irrigation works in the " western
states has given a great.impetus to every
industry in that section of the country.
The people of the eastern states are just
beginning to realize the opportunties of
fered in the territory to be opened up.
As the proposition develop, a tide of
immigration will inevitably set in and
this region will become one of the most
populous and prosperous in the country.
With large areas of reclaimable land
and plenty of available water, Oregon
especially will be benefited by the
The actual work of surreying, locating
and constructing reeerroira and other
iirigation works will be done by the
Geological Surrey. In order to obtain
a better understanding of the present
extent of irrigation, the location of tbe
areas irrigated, and to gain other in
formation usetul in this work, the Fifty-
seventh Congress authorized the Direct
or of the Census to bring down to date
the irrigation statistic obtained in 1900
by that office. Letters of inquiry and
schedules are now being sent out t
secure the necessary Information. All
interested in irrigation shooJd.answer as
fully and as promptly as possible any
inquires they may .receive so that the
merits of the various sections of the
country mar become known. Irrigators
who do not receive blanks within a
reasonable time should notify tbe Cen
sus Office st Washington and they will
It is interesting to note in this con
nection bow much it will mean to the
country at large to have tbe arid lands
of the West reclaimed. '
According to tbe census of 1900 the
total improved farm area of tbe United
States was 114,860,000 acres. It is con
servatively estimated that the reclaim
able area is not lees than 50,000,000
acres. 1 ts reclamation, therefore, will
aad nearly one-eight to tbe actual crop
producing area of the country and will
exceed by a liberal margin tbe tillable
land of all tbe states, excepting New
York, on the Atlantic Coast from Maine
to Ilordia. Allowing 40 acres, the
average size of irrigated farm, this area
will make 1,250,000 farms or a little lest
than one-fourth tbe number in the
United States in 1900. Tbe occupants
of these farms will add directly to tbe
population 6,250,000,' and indrectly, in
the accompanying mercantile profes
sional, manufacturing and industrial
classes at least S,125,000 more, a total
increase in the population of the United
States of 9,375,000, or nearly twelve and
one-half per cent.
Tbe total value of all tbe farms in 1900
including all improvements except
buildings, was 113,115,000,000. At 42.
50 per acre, the average value of ir
rigated land, tbe 50,000,000 acres to be
reclaimed will add to tbe value of farm
land $1,250,000,000. If buildings are
included, tbe value will be increased
775,000,000, while tbe augmented
wealth through railroads, cities, mills
and factories, is beyond estimation.
The annual value of all the farm pro
ducts in 1900 was 14,379,000,000. Tbe
average value per acre f products of ir
rigated lands was $14.82. At this rate
the area to be reclaimed will add pro
ducts worth (740,500,000 an addition'of
nearly one-sixth of the life sustaining
powers of the country.
The number of irrigating ditches and
canals in operation in tbe United States
exceeds 20,000, and their combined
length is not less that 50,000 miles. If
joined end to end they would reach
twice around the world. Formed into
one they would constitute a navigable
canal, such as tbe Erie, thirty feet wide
and five feet deep, extending from San
Francisco to New York, a distance of
over 3,000 miles.
The figures of the last census show
that the works required to irrigate 7.2G3,
203 acres cost $64,289,601, an average of
iS.85 per acre. At this rate the expendi
ture reqnired to required to reclaim the
area proposed would be at least (450,
000,000. After tbe Government has per
formed its part there will be no delay by
the farmers in carrying on tbe work.
While the initial expense ia enormous,
it is not comparable . with the value of
the crops which will be grown on the
lands reclaimed. The total cost of all
the irrigation works in use in the coun
try is only three-fourths the value of
the crops produced each year on irriga
Stock That Pays.'
Thirty years ago a Canadian farmer
invested in a good bnt not fashionably
bred Shorthorn cow. He bred her and
her descendants to good bulls. This
year he sold his herd, all bred by him-
elf except the herd bull and all de
scended from the original cow. They
numbered 60 head and brooght, excla
sive of the. bull, (10,145. No doubt this
herd had more than paid its way ever
since it was founded, otherwise the
breeder would not have kept it up. It
would be interesting to know what the
old cow brought this breeder, but cer
tainly she proved a good investment.
Another example of success from an
humble beginning. . A man does not
need to be wealthy to make a start in
breeding live stock. If he has the abil
ity and is willing to give the business
the attention it requires he can build np
a good herd that will some day make
him independent. National Stockman

Trial for Treason.
The Lord Chief Justice of England
after a trial by jury who found Colonel
Lynch guilty of high treason has sen
tenced him to suffer t.'ie death penalty.
The sentence will, undoubtedly, be com
muted to a jail sentence by King Kd
ward. Tbe offence charged against Col-
Lynch is treason in fighting agaiiift the
British forces while tie was a Pritich
subject. Lynch was born in ' Australia.
While in that enlightened colony he had
been continually in tumults and bis
hatred of England led him, after war
had been proclaimed in South Africa, to
go there and join the Boer forces. This
is considered treason by any country.
But he did not stop' at this but forced
others, among whom was an American
citizen, to fight againnt the P.riti:di army.
When the war was nearly at a close
Colonel Lynch was elected to a seat in
the British house of commons by admir
ing friends in Ireland and he went to
England to take his seat in Parliament
