"As a matter of fact," remarked Mr. Naismith, "we have been enlarging our canals and making mojny im-provcnwnts. The mat^tor will have to conw up liefore the International Waterways Commission^^ and as. a matter of fact it has now been going on for three years. Even if they would divert thg^ water for their re-claimation scheme, they could not pos�ihly use- nil the water. There is plenty for us both. We have known for some time that they have siu* veys out and even have assisted them in some of the work, regarditkg location. It is purely and simply a mattcfr for the two governments to deal with, and we are not worrjing at all." / , When asked as to the condition of the crops in the southern irrigated lands, Mr. Naiismith stated that they were everything that could bc desi.vd though of course there had been some slight damage, but no't enough to make a material dillerence.

NATIONAL TELEGRAPH AND TEL EPHONES The telegraph and telephone systems wore but more convenient and faster modes of communication than the po.stal service which was a government monopoly: The former should be a similar monopoly under a commi.ssion fret! from politics.
