to T. Roosevelt For seven
years the strenuous colonel
was in the White House and
his party was in control or both
houses of congress.
In that period the colonel
had a splendid opportunity to
give us such a navy as we
needed and such an army as
we needed. Whv didn't he do
Does not the colonel make
himself ridiculous when he at
tacks the Wilson administra
tion on the preparedness is
sue? Presidnt Wilson has been
in office but three years. He
has had but half the opportu
nity that Roosevelt had to
build up our fighting forces.
But he is doing more than
Roosevelt did. Under the sanc
tion of the president congress
is passing legislation that will
vastly increase the strength of;
oh, the regular army and the na
tional guard. The naval pro-

j single year. It will restore us
to second rank among the
world powers, a position we
lost during the Roosevelt ad
If Roosevelt's own views on
. preparedness are to be accept-
od as correct the colonel is in
the position of a man who fail
ed to meet his duty when he
was in office, yet is criticising
a man who is really making
'good upon this subject.

recently arrested in Co

the case came before the Kor
rektionsgericht (court of cor

that the children were out with
permission from their homes.
The judge however refused
to accept that excuse ; he said
that the children should have
been in their homes and each
parent was fined ten marks.

better care of their children.
In his lecture the judge said
"Children are inclined nowadays no

prerogatives of grown folks as soon as
can tell nis ewers wnat even
they have never learned. This pre
cocity Is harmful, as the children ate
not able to discriminate, and simply
have their curiosity whetted before
they are physically competent, which
fact will lead them Into unnatura

the "straw" ballot has in

things to come there should be
some little interest in the test
now being made by a Detroit
newspaper. A total of 12,637
votes has been cast up to the
present, and President Wilson
is in the lead. The factory vote
gave him a very considerable
lead. The colonel is second.
Hughes is way behind.

different character than the Ft. Bel
knap reservation lands does not fur.
nlsh sufficient reason for a different
principle of construction, he holds.
Judge Phelps cites practical testi
mony to the fact that water diverted
from a stream for irrigation purposes
to a considerable extent finds Its way
hack to the stream to be used ugaln
by those lower down. "It Is not like
ly." he says, therefore, "that any
beneficial use of the waters of the
Umatilla by the Indians will seriously
affect In the long run the use of the
stream for the purposes of the mill
"But, however that may be. I am
of the opinion that by the holding ol
the supreme court of the United States
In the Winters case supra, the Indian
has a primary right to the use of the
water to the extent or his needs, limit
ed only to a beneficial use under the
general rule pertaining to the duty of
Mill's I lis in- rp to tXHigrcas.
As for determining the rights of the
milling company at this time, Judge
PhSlpl holds that any aol of his court
at this time would be premature. On
March 3, 1885 congress passed an act
continuing the license grunted to
deorge La Dow, Lot Llvermore et al
for the use of water of tlie river in fa
vor of W. S. Byers. Thut act speci
fied that such continuance was not to
affect or impair any existing rights Of
to grant or confirm any right to use
water beyond or different from the
original license.
It has been the contention of the
government that this permissive use
or license was subject to revocalon at
Any time while the Byers mill intei-
, ests asserted that a permanent right
to the use of 10,000 cubic feet of water
per minute was granted. In advance
! of any attempt by congress to repeal,
I modify or withdraw the privilegSA
! mentioned. Judge Phelps holds that
I any action he might take would be
j premature and not olndlng. Such
rights as are given to the milling
I company must continue until some at-
tempt Is made to take them away.
Should this attempt be mude, a feder
al question would arise to be settled
in federal courts, he holds.
However, such rights as the milling
interests have, whether temporary or
permanent, do not affect the primary
rights of the Indians, he holds.
The Duty or Water.
As to the amount of water which
should be allowed to waterusers for
Irrigation purposes, Judge Phelps
states that it Is difficult tu make an
estimate. The law giveB them an
appropriation sufficient for proper Ir
rigation. Judge Phelps states that It
Is not the policy of the government
to deprive the land owners of a ne
cessary amount but to limit the use to
actual requirements.
"Generally speaking the water user
has been negligent," he says, "and
either unable or unwilling to arrange
to build up his system of irrigation so
as to waste as little water as possible."
In the main Judge Phelps finds the
conclusions reached
by the state wa-
ter board to be correct but thinks that
it is evident from tne testimony that
in .the reclamation or arid lands a
I larger amount of water is required
i than allowed by the board. His opln-
Ion Is that In the reclamation of arid
I lands five and a half acre feet shoul i
I be allowed instead or rour and a hall
during the process of reclamation.

Doctrine of Kelution.
The law gives a water user, when
he secures a water right, a reasonable
time in which to use this right and
under this law Judge Phelps was call
ed upon to consider the claims of the
Western Land & Irrigation Co.. the
Furnish Ditch Company, the United
States and others relative to the dates
of priority. In this connection Judge
Phelps states that the water board
recognizes there mast be a revision of

the lists and schedules of lands, and
the result of such revision he will In
