A great deal of thla land will not at-

most worthless, and the government
will have to live It away to get rid
- Ter there expected to be great
scramble for moat of these lands; there
la always at scramble for Indian land.
Already there la a tremendous clamor
for Uintah landa In Utah, largely due to
the fact that mineral haa been found on
thla reservation. The same is true of
the 8hosaone reservation in Wyoming.
It la reported that, there are rich depose
Its of gold within that reservation, and
already hundreds. of prospective settlers
are aoeking information ha lo how thle
land may ba obtained. . . . .
' In the Yakima reservation la a con
siderable area of timber land, but It la
not flrat-claea timber. There la also
soma agricultural land, and mora than
can be made productive by Irrigation,
but It I not aa attractive as other landa
In tha state of Washington. And ao It
la with every reservation to be thrown

The reclamation servtoe. in carrying
out. the provisions of tha national irri
gation law, la attiring to obtain tha best
results tor tha least money consistent
with good work. But la Ita very first
attempt to minimise tha coat of Irriga
tion work tha servloe nnaa ltseir aa-
euaed of violating or encouraging vlo-
latlon of tha anti-rebate provision- of
tha Interstate commerce law. A atudy
of both aides of tha question leads to
tha conclusion that tha reclamation
service la unjustly accused. Technical
ly the service may be subject to erlti
olsm. but for all practical purposes It ta
above censure. - -
j After reptatlrf conferencesLWlth prom
inent railroad ollicuua, ins reonunaiion
service received assurances from all tha
great railroads of the west that they
would carry government supplies for
una on Irrigation projecta at one half
their regular! rate, and would make a
lika concession oa machinery, toola and
everything else going to- make up the
plants of contractors who are or may
Hereafter ' ouiia government irna"""
worka. It la estimated that such con
cessions from the railroads mean a aav-
Insr to the government of approximately
10 par cent of tha coat of each and every
project, and In the and wilmeaa a aav-
ins of many mUllong of dollars. . - .
Bloa Were aVeduoea,
In tha application of thla agreement
tha - reclamation service . called rortn
criticism from the controller of. tha
treasury, though the controller waa
frank enough to admit that hla criticism
amounted to little, aa no - waa not tna
proper official to consider the mstter.
Acting under , Its., agreement' with the
Tall roads, tha reclamation service, la In
viting blda for reclamation wonts, causa
attention of bidders to the reduoed rata
which waa offered lor transporting sup
pliea of government contractors, with
tha result that bidder made proportion

lent to tha reduction In freights. Tha
saving waa to tha government! tha con
tractor did not profit, nor did tha rail
roads. However, thla practice waa con
demned and haa beeu abandoned. ,
