"The interstate Irrigating canal, ex- tending through Wyoming and into Nebraska and now in course of con- struction, will be the longest in the United States. The canal will be 140 miles stated F. H. Newell, chief engineer of the United states reclama- tion bureau during a short visit to a representative of the Omaha Bee, In that city last week. Mr. Newell is making a general tour of the states and territories in which irrigation is a vital consideration. From Omaha he proceeded to Denver Continuing on the subject of the North Plane river canal, Mr. Newel] aatd' "It has been estlmatled that acres of land will be reclaimed by this great project, and the secretary of the interior has set aside from the reclamation fund for tbe com- pletion of this groat work, Aslae from the work of reclamation the ca- nal will serve to prevent the annual floods that occur in tbe territory tap- ped. About one and a half million acre feet is the estimate annual dis- charge of the North Platte, and It Is expected tho reservoir will be able to conserve tbe flood and surplus waters for the entire year. The reservoir will be plaoed three below the mouth of the Sweetwater and In solid rock. The land owners in that part of tbe country to be irrigated have formed tbe North Platte Valley Water Users' Association, no owner being allowed to Irrigate more than 160 acies, the purpose being to do the most good to the greatest number and to fill up tbe land with bona fide set- tlers. An assessment of 12 an acre is made and ten years is allowed to make the payment for the water right." Mr. Newell views the present work of Irrigating the arid lands of the west as a grand work and belelves the tune is not far distant when tbe "deserts" of Nebraska and Wyoming will blos- som as tbe rose.
