It is doubtful if Manderson gets any delegates from his Home . From senator Dubois and congressman Wilson against the segregation of West Side lands under the a Carey act. A House of representatives Washington d. C., feb. 8, �?T96. F Hon. S. W. Lamoreaux commissioner of general land office Washington d. we have reliable information that a certain corporation known As the a american Falls canal and Power company of Utah has made application for the segregation of some 66,000 acres of land from the Public Domain under and by virtue of the provisions of the act of june 30th, 1894, commonly known As the a Carey this application embraces land lying along Snake River in the state of Idaho from a Point above Blackfoot to a Point at or near american Falls. We desire to enter our protest against the allowance of the segregation of lands from the Public Domain under this application for the reason that it will work a great injury and injustice to irrigation works already constructed and to those engaged in the construction thereof As Well As to actual and Bona fide settlers on Large areas of land in question. The Peoples canal and irrigation company a corporation organized under the Laws of Idaho on the co operative plan has already constructed a canal known As the a a people a canal a which is from thirty to sixty feet wide on the Bottom and of an average depth of five feet carrying four feet of water and this canal is constructed Twenty five Miles from its head Gate some nine Miles above the town of Blackfoot Idaho. Eighty men and teams Are now at work extending this canal in pursuance of its plans and purposes and when it is completed it will be forty five Miles in length. Said Peoples canal and irrigation company has been organized by actual settlers on the Public Domain and is being constructed by them for the purpose of reclaiming arid lands lying under said canal and thereby furnishing Homes for Home seekers. Some 200 families have settled upon said lands and As a result of this anal 50 desert and 125 Homestead entries have been made under the United states land Laws on lands lying under this canal. The interests of a people in an arid Region demand that the owner of the soil shall likewise own the right to the use of the water which irrigates it. The purposes of the a Carey act were not to interfere with works already in operation or construction and with the rights of settlers on that Public Domain but it was intended to be a Means whereby vacant arid lands totally unimproved and a reclaimed might be redeemed and brought into a state of cultivation. In that direction its practical application can be of great Benefit to the people in the arid West but we submit that in the Case of this application in question it will work a Manifest injustice and hardship to the people whose rights have already intervened. If this segregation is permitted All of the vacant lands under the a a people a canal above referred to will be separated from the Public Domain and will become dependent upon and tributary to the said a american Falls canal and Power it would be manifestly unfair and unjust to the people whose labor and Industry have constructed the a a people a canal for a distance of Twenty five Miles under great hardships and privations to be denied the legitimate fruits of their toil by this segregation. Such segregation would practically ruin the a Upeor pie s canal a because it would subject a Large area of the lands lying immediately thereunder to irrigation from another system which was not contemplated or even suggested when the a a people a canal was commenced. Moreover the american Falls canal company is a foreign corporation is not organized on the co operative plan and has less than three Miles of works constructed with no possibility of irrigating any land during the coming season. We believe that the land under the a a people a canal is in contemplation of the a Carey act practically reclaimed now because it Only needs the distribution of the water on the different subdivisions and the Extension of the canal on which eighty Home seekers Are now Labouring. The a Carey act was intended to assist rather than retard settlement and reclamation of the Public Domain. If this segregation is permitted it will be used to defeat the very purposes and objects of its originators. The foregoing representations Are made to us by a Large number of representative citizens directly interested in this matter and we believe that the statements Are absolutely True. We therefore ask that no segregation be made or any action taken by the department on the application of the american Falls company until the people directly interested shall have an Opportunity to enter a protest.
