under examination by the government

That is the carefully expressed opin
ion of C. B. Boothe. chairman of tho
board of directors of the National ir
rigation association, to the Spokesman-Review.
Mr Boothe, who Is al
so executive chairman of tho twelfth
annual Irrigation congress, to be held
In El Pnso, Texas, November 15, lfi,
17 and 18, addressed n special meeting
of the Spokane chamber of commerce
yesterday afternoon. Accompanied
by his wire and daughter, he is on
his way to his Los Angeles home.
After a trip on the "Seeing Spokane"
car. the ladles were entertained by
aire. D. T. Hnm and Mrs. A. S. Crow
der, while Mr. Boothe addressed the
chamber of commerce.
"One year ago today," said the
speaker, "the executive committee of
the National Irrigation Association de
elded that the Irrigation idea ought
to be pressed throughout the East. In
Southern California throe years ago,
when the Southern flallfnml
of the association was organized, wo
started with 250 members, and. with
an executive committee of 17. I was
made chnlrman of the executive com
