Tolls of the Initiatory Steps
In Oregon Irrigation at
Water Is to Be Common Property, Is
Sold to the Land and There Will Be
No Wrangling As to Small Farms.
F. H. Nowoll, chlof engineer tho
United States rorlamatlon servlco,
was In Portlnnd Monday ond submitt
ed to an Intervlow by tho Oregon
Daily Journal. Ills business in tho
w at is to form tho initial plans for re
claiming tho great iiorthweHtorn arid
section by means of tho Irrigation
plans to bo adopted undor tho rocont
net of congress.
Ho gavo tho following vajuablo In
formation to tho Journal:
Water Common Property.
"My mission at this tlmo," Mr.
Nowoll said last evening, "Is to tako
a irnnonil nurvov of tho ennntrv. con
sult with tho pcoplo and nscortaln
from them, so far oh I can, thblr de
sires. Tho now law Is ono of tho most
carefully written of any of tho rocont
otmctmonta, and to achlovo tho host
results must bo dolicntoly handled.
In a nutshell, It treats unappropriated
wateru of tho country ns tho common
property of tho people, and thoy must
not lfocomo tho nssot of any single
Individual: No man can buy thorn at
any prico. Thoy aro an horltngo from
tho bonofactor to bo used only for tho
healthy anointing of his Boll or tho
propulsion of Industry's wheels.
How a Start Will be Made.
"To iuuugurato a system of irriga
tion In any locality wo must ascer
tain: Can wntor bo obtained; Is there
arid laud In sufficient quantity in tho
vicinity to mako Its reclamation an
object; what will bo tho cost.
"If all these conditions aro satis
factory the government ndvancos tho
money to do all things necessary to
hoiiso tho water and dlstrlbuto It
where It Ib nodded. Tho cost of such
control of tho supply and Its distribu
tion will, of courHo, vary. Ono loca
tion, for example, may coBt but $5
nor aero: iinothor S10. another $12,
and In difficult locutions ovon up to
$20 or $25. Say that tho llrst cost to
tho government Is $12 per acre. That
sum Ib chargod up to tho Irrigated
land, and tho owner of tho soil may
repay tho government In ton annual
paymontH. With tho Burety of a crop
each Hcason, this may bo undertaken
with absolute confidence, and will not
prove a burden to tho bonoflciary of
tho law.
Must Pay.
"Tho wulor for Irrigation Is not
sold to any Individual. It Is sold to
tho land only, and tho clmrgo bocomos
a Hon unon tho nioncrty. In dofault
of payment for two years tho rights
uro rortlflod, and tho bonotlteu janu
will bo Bold for Its liquidation. In
fiHn of homesteads, to which gov
ornmont title has not boon ucqulrod,
tho land reverts back to tno govern
ment In caso of dofault, and subjoct
to ontrv as If not nrovlouBly filed
upon. And anothor thing; no porBon
can acquire a right to a greator quan
tity of water than Is necessary to Ir
HirntA tlm land actually cultivated by
him. For example, if a porson own
ing ICO acres of laud snouiu acquire
water rights for that acreago, and
then cultivate but 80 acroB, all his
rights would bo cancelled. No trick
ory, chicanery or false representations
will bo toloratod by tho govornmont,
Its ono purpose being to husband tho
water resources of tho arid regions,
and employ such water to tho best ad
vantage Jn making valuablo soil that
Is at proBont without value.
No Wrangling,
"in fnMAfl where streams aro already
n rmmtirl utnd there will bo no wrangl-
Jug with the claimants, so far aa the
government Is concerned. We will
simply leavo thorn alono until they
havo settled tholr differences among
themselves, and then, If posslblo, the
United States will tauo up mo woric
and proceed along Its own lines,
wimro tho value of manufacturing
concerns aro impaired by reason of
destruction of water powers, tno gov
ernment is not engaging in aispuia
Mnn lmt intends to nut this benefi
cial law Into actlvo service with as1
little friction as possible.
