GAMCIAN CHURCH UNBER FIRE WATER .H008 Editor, Herald: Unless the settlers in the south are permitted free and unrestricted access to water, whether held by natural or i artificial means, the most rapid development of the South cannot be expected. The refusal of water by some occupants of land, holding it with the'selfish desire to sell it, is equivalent to an order to get out of the country, as no man can successfully farm and haul water five or six miles. The police, the writer thinks, do not understand their duty. He haa in mind an ihstaaoei where, to their knowledge, water was sold every day, and homesteaders who had helped to build the dam were refused water, and where there is'Water in abundance. This hint should awaken the councillors of the municipalities to their authority and duty. Hoping you will think this comment of sufficient Importance to find space In your valuable paper.
