To our Friends and Patrens:
The year now drawing to a olose has
been one of the most satisfactory and
suooessful of our oareer. During the
year of 1913 a larger volume of busi
ness was transacted through our insti
tution than during any previous year in
our history. Within the past sixty days
more new aooounts have been opened with
us than in any like period heretofore,
while our books now oontain a larger
number of depositors than ever before--a
silent tribute to the faot that our
business methods have met with the pub
lics' a generous approval and that our
banking policies have proven right un
der the exacting test of time.
During the past year we have in
creased our office force, have further
perfected our carefully devised system
of handling the large volume of busi
ness committed to our charge, and have
added the newest and latest office
equipment, so that we are now enabled
to render better and more efficient
service to our patrons than at any time
in the past
With the approach of the holiday
period we extend to our many friends
the season's greeting We desire to
thank you for your past patronage, for
the kindly words of commendation that
have brought us new friends and pat
rons. That the New Year may bring you
one and all prosperity and plenty is
our sinoerest wish.

"Beneficial Use" is Basis of
Right to Um Water
Under the laws of water rights
as established by legislation and
court decrees in the arid states
of the west, the final test of a
right to water for irrigation is
that the water claimed shall be
put to a beneficial use. A ex
pressed by the laws of several
states, "beneficial use in the basis,
the measure, and the limit" of
rights to water. These laws,
however, do not attempt to de
fine "beneficial use."
At a conference of the project
managers of the United States
reclamation service and repre
sentatives of the department of
agriculture, held at Salt Luke.
November 112-15. a resolution at
tempting such a definition was
adopted. This definition is some
what long and detailed, but in
substance is as follews:
A water user is entitled to that
"amount of water that will rend
er him a reasonable maximum
amount of good with a reason
able economic handling of the
water." He is entitled to the'
protection of the state in this
right, but, in return the state
nllU fl triirllf tii iLlomwl thai .. '
use reasonable care and judge
ment in conveying and using
water and cultivating his crops.
The conference adopted also a
definition of "economical use,"
which was in substance as follow.-
Since the water supply avail
able for irrigation in the western
states is adequate for only a re
latively small percentage of the
entire irrigable acreage, the
fundamental standard of economi
cal use must be the financial re
sults acomplished per acre-foot
of water applied, rather than the
yield per acre irrigated. In fut
ure development the doctrine of
beneficial use must in many oases
merge into or be supplanted by
that of economic use. The doc
trine of beneficial use looks to
individual interest; that of
economic use to the general wel
fare of society as a whole. So
far as possible, water charges,
systems of distribution, and re
gulations should be so adjusted
as to make the interest of the
individual water user coincide
with this public interest. Port
