decision of that court rendered
last Monday, in the Kansas Colo
rado case, declaring that the
National Constitution gives the
Government no control of arid
regions for their reclamation,
says the Oregonian.
Should foes of Government ir
rigation bring suit to restrain the
Government from irrigation pro
ject, as Monday's decision may
encourage them to do, and should
the supreme Court follow that
decision, rendered by Justice
Brewer, the great reclamation
work for which the government
has spent $30,000,000 might be
stopped or have to be taken up
by other authorities. Projects
now under construction will re
claim 3.500.0(H) acres. Two are
under construction in Oregon,

The Supreme Court indicated
some doubt as to the right of the
(Jovernment to undertake such
work in any conditions and a fur

work can be undertaken when

be constitutional. According to

bought and paid for a number of

be destroyed by the construction
of the government system. If
the'reclamation act should le tie

tirety, work on the project would
be discontinued, the Government
would forfeit the amount of mon

able to recover a proportionate
amount from the landowners,
and a new plan of reclamation by
private enterprise would be nec
osiary. Some of those who sold water
rights to the Government includ

by which the United States re

specified quantity of water per

kind would cause many compli
