Minneapolis, May 4. Wheat The
market opened a fraction over Sat
urday's close, but owing to a rather
poor response on the part of foreign
markets to reflect our advance of
Saturday and slightly heavier re
ceipts. Thero seems quite a diversity
of opinion on the damage done by the
recent cold wave. This damage done
will only be known after tho weather
sufficiently warms up, when whatever
damago has been done will make
Itself manifest. We believe that there
has been considerable damage done
to the growing crop and this combin
ed with tho good cash demand will
materially enhance values.

ASK FOR IRRIGATION DISTRICT
LOCATED NEAR MILTON ON
LITTLE WALLA WALLA.
Umatilla County Takes the Lead In
Oregon Will Be the First District
to Be Organized Under the Law of
A petition will bo presented to the
county court at Hb meeting on Wed
nesday next, for tho organization of
"Tho Walla Walla Irrigation District"
as provided by the laws ot tho state
of Oregon. The district Is in tho vi
cinity of Milton on tho Little Walln
Walla river ,aud will bo n most valu
able tract of land provided tho peti
tion is granted and tho scheme Is car
ried put to Us completion.
Tho law under which tho petition
Is prayed for Is a virtual copy of what
Is known as tho "Wright" law of Cal
ifornia. This law has been through
tho stato and federal courts and has
been sustained by tho United States
supreme court. Tho Oregon law was
enacted In 1895 and the petition will
for the HrBt time call It Into effect,
lly Its provisions a board Is to bo ap
pointed which shall havo control of
tho water supply. In case thero Is
not sufficient water to furnish all of
the district every day with Irrigation,
tho board will apportion tho water
supply to tho various patrons In a
manner to them ucemeu just and
euuitahle. Thuy can give tho water
on alternate days or in any way to
conservo thn supply. In this way all
waste Is done away with ami tho
water supply conserved to tno uest
interests of all.
If this experiment Is successful, It
will probably result In the establish,
ment of .Irrigation districts through
out tho seml arld district of Eastern
Oregon, and prove the entering wedge
for tho complete Irrigation of this part
of the stato. For this reason tno ac
tlon of tho county court and tho ultl
mate result of tho schemo will ho
watched with great Interest through
out tho country,
