In additfop , to the testimony taken at the hearing : in the ease of Thompson vs Peterson, 1 then being heard, might also be con- I : sidered, a copy thereof being attached to the record, the same to have effect so far as practicable relative to the climatic conditions and results of j farming in the vicinity, the land in- volved in the two contests being lo- cated about a mile distant from each other. A copy of the said record of Thompson vs is attached to j the record of this coti test. “On June 15, 1909, the local officers at Rap' ' ’lty rendered the decision, ,i * Idi 1 ih records and recom- , • • i i- r i •• Me.-t- be dismissed. “ , • ;m tlieir c.eci: on the coo < -rant I appi al«fd._ “On September 10, 1909, you trans- mitted the case which had been trans- ferred from Rapid City to your office. “In the decision of this case the testimony of both records has been considered, l'he testimony is con- flicting as to the crops the land in- volved and other lands in the vicinity willproduce. The witnesses for the 1 contestant testify that there is a draw running through the land that will 1 produce half a ton of hay to the acre 1 if not pastured. They admit that much of the land has ‘white epots, 1 that willnot produce anything unless manured, and upon their showing it ' appears a few acres in the vicinity ' here and there have produced crop» 1 of wheat, oats aud corn hut they have 1 failed to show that any remunerative 1 yield has been obtained; that agricul- tural crops, either hay, corn, oats or I wheat can be profitably grow n with- out irrigation. “From tho testimony in both cases the evidence is conclusive these lands are covered with cactus, sage brush and a few plum trees; that much of it is alkali land and known at ‘gumbo’ and all of it is recognized as arid in j character; that the soil is of the same nature as that included in the Belle i Fourche irrigation project, distant about fi or 7 miles therefrom. There is no doubt that the yield of these lands has been increased to some ex- tent by greater rainfall within the past few years, also by cultivation, but it is doubtful that any crops have ever been raised that are fairly re- munerative on this land or any other land in this vicinity, which has been referred to in the testimony. “There is a clear preponderance of of the evidence that the lands, one ! year with another, without artificial irrigation, willnot produce remuner- ative crops. “Your decision is affirmed and the contest is dismissed.” Respectfully, 8.
