Washington, .Tan. 14. (Special) Senator Hansbroush's latest Intro duced Irrigation bill providing for the appointment o; a "constructlm; engineer" to build sovemment Irrl eatlon works, at a salary of 110,000 a year, Is receiving a good deal of unfavorable comment in congression al and official circles. The measure practically takes tho work out of tho hands of the present "Reclamation Service" which has spent the last ten years in a close stuciv of western hydrographlc conditions and irriga tion projects. It Is the most radical legislation which has been proposed In connection with Irrigation and has attracted some attention, following as it does, the president's suggestion that no amending of the irrigation law is desired null the rovernmcnt plans are further worked ouL Personal Direction Needed. A conscientious "constructing en gineer." it is held by tho engineering fraternity, must personally direct tho construction work under him, and he cannot be In two 0r more places at the same time. In other words, each of the big government Irrigation works needs Its own construction en glnecr to watch and pass upon every Inch of progress. The present head or the reclamat ion service- N Frederick H. Newell. He has the general supervision of the entire work Including nil the iliies,tioiis arising under the irrigation uf those engaged In it, and resulting In benollts so great and enduring lo our country. Is, In the Judgment of your committee, well worthy of com memoration by this government." 'j above report by the senate commit tee on industrial expositions', was adopted unanimously. Tho appropri ation nsked for Is $2,125,000. Tho committee report says further: "Th purpose of tho Lewis and Clark expo sition may bo said to bo two-fold. Its primary purpose Is to celobrato the centennial anniversary of the Louis and Clark expedition, ono of the most lutorestlng and important "ems in mo history of this country. It was tho most powerful factor in the chain of events that ultimately resulted In our acquisition of tho uregon country, comprising now tho states nr Washington, Oregon, Idaho mid parts of Montana and Wyoming, a region unsurpassed In natural re sourcesIn the wealth of Its forest3, is minerals, its fisheries, the fortlll'y oi us soil and the salubrity of lis cumate.
