of Dill Regulating National
Wnahlngton, Mnrch 20. In Ha gen
eral operation, tho National reclama
tion Inw has proven quite as effective as
Its If amors expected; Indeed, tho gen
eral work of nntlonnl Irrigation la pro
gressing satisfactorily. In tho admin
istration of tho Iteclamatlon service,
however, thoro has boon soma slight
friction which ban resulted In delays
that havo boon bothersome, If nothing
No ono can real I re this more than
tho chief of tho Iteclamatlon service,
Mr. Nowoll, and the director of the
Geological survey, Mr. Walcott. To
obvlato these delays, tho reclamation
authorities havo explained tho situa
tion to tho preslden and ho baa ap
proved tholr recommendations and at
the Joint request of these ofllclnla a hill
baa Ihjoii Introduced In congress which
will, If enacted, prove of very material
benefit to tho Iteclamatlon service.
Moat of tho friction and delay com
plained of is tho reault of red tape that
exists between tho Reclamation uillce
and tho Interior department proper.
Their dealings nro not direct, and In
tho roundabout courso they follow
many delays are likely to occur. Tho
hill that has boon laid before tho house
by Representative Cooper docs away
with Ibis red tape by providing a more
direct means of communication, at the
same tlmo giving tho Iteclamatlon aer
vlco more leeway. Tho director of tho
geological survey ia made the director
of tho Reclamation service and he goes
nb tail with his plans, mcroly submit
ting them to the secretary (or approval
and not (or revolw.
Anothor Important change ia made
by the bill In the matter of apportion
ing and expending money (or reclama
tion works. At present thla money ia
entirely under the control of the secre
tary. At this tlmo there Is a very
strong sentiment In congress against
allowing cabinet officers to handle such
funds In a free manner, and tho ten
dency Is to restrict lump appropriations
and stipulate tho various purposes for
which tlio money la to be used. The
Cooper bill permlta tho Iteclamatlon
aervlco to send to congreaa each year a
statement of the expenditures which it
proposes to make during the following
12 months, ao that congress shall spe
cifically authorize the various expendi
tures. Thus, while the Iteclamatlon
service will retain tho right to say how
the funds shall bo apportioned, their
findings are always subject to the ap
proval of congress.
Notwithstanding this bill Is approved
In ita ontirlty by Prealdnet Roosevelt
and by tho houto leaders, Reprerenla
tlve Mondell, of Wyoming, chairman
of tho Irrigation committee, says It is
(aulty and has asked permission to
mako certain amendments.
