What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

But more than that, the bur- dens of future taxation in Mon- tana will be lightened fot• t he taxpayers outside of these dis- triets. This will be true because of the great and continuously' growing taxable values of the lands reclaimed by irrigation un- der the operation of the proposed law, and also by reason of the tens of millions in neW farm wealth annually produeed by the new irrigated areas. Increased land values and in- creased farm wealth will benefit any taxpayer in the state, no mat- ter in what business, calling or oc- cupation he may be engaged. For these reasons eonfideent ap- peal is made for signatures to the Initiated petitions, which will be in circulation soon. That appeal is made for the further reason that there is the fullest protection of the interests of the state and of the farmers and landowners in the irrigation districts that will he created in such large numbers from this time on. When an irrigation district, ap- plies for the purchase Of its bonds by the state, the state board of examiners are required to: 1—Cause the state engineer's office to make a thorough examin- ation of the plans of the district and to report if t be a feasible, workable project. 2—The attorney general's office will be required to report on the legality of all the proceedings under which the district has been organized, to assume that the law has been fully complied with as to these matters. 3—The state examiner's office will examine records to ascertain if the land vttlues in the district are a sufficient basis, when under irrigation, to make the bonds a safe investment. 4—When the state has agreed to purchase the bonds of a district the commissioners of the distriet will be required to let a contract or contracts for the completion of the irrigation plant at a cost not exceeding the amount of the bonds, the contractor or contract- ors to give bonds for the comple- tion of the construction work ac- eording to plane and specifica- tions and the amount of the bid therefor. This will insure that the state's investment will rest upon a going irrigation plant, able to serve water to the lands to be reclaimed. It will also pro- tect the individual land owner in the district, in the assurance that he will get the water with which to irrigate the land entitled to the water. While irrigation districts may be organized under either of the laws now in existence for that purpose, the bond law proposed Ivy the Montana Irrigation con- gress, in section sixteen thereof, makes R provision that should greatly stimulate the organiza- tion of new districts. That section provides that the first issue of bonds may be made large enough to repay all prelim- inary expenses, and also to pro- vide an \interest payment fund\ out of which the interest on bonds due the state may be paid for a period of five years. This will permit the completion of the plant and the service of watee before the land owners are required to \go down into their pockets\ for interest payments. Payments thereafter will be made possible by the insurance of good crops grown by irrigation. • Suppose that during the first year under the new plan the state shall have purchased $10,000,000 worth of district bonds. The state will have issued the same amount of its own bonds. The district bonds will bear a rate of 6 per cent, and the sum in interest this would bring to the state would be $600,000. The interest rate on the State bonds will probably not exceed 514 per cent. This would mean an interest payment by the state of but $525,000, or $75,000 fess ; than it would have received • on the district bonds. The state would be the gainer, not the loser, •. on the bonds it had purchased. . The pin Would be $7,500 on each $1000,000 of bond transactions.

COWS, BOWS, SILOS GOOD COMBINATION Sucoessful‘Agriculture Must Be Based Upon More Than One Crop 'Under the heading \Montana Must Farm, — the current issue of the bulletin of the Montana De- velopment Association HaYs: Difficult us it may seem to those business men who feel that the/1 have expended every dollar which they legitimately can to help fi- nance Montana farmers, the fact remains that the business inen of Montana are going to be required to do still more for the farmers than they have done up to now. If Montana is going to pull out of the slump she is- in today in the dry farming regions, we have got to have diversified agriculture. We have got to plant corn, rotote the crops properly, and inter - sperm it with summer fallow. Every authority agrees on this point. Livestock has got to be worked ,into the scheme, and to do these things, the business men ore going to bc compelled to ren- der further assistance. Seed corn must come in in quantities, some machinery must be provided, and assistance generally will have to be rendered to get the new pro- ject on foot. Cows, sows, and silos mean money invested. Here is what one of the most success- ful farmers of the Kalispell dis- trict says about the way to suc- ceed with our .dry land farms: •\fhere never was a successful ttgricultute on earth that did not embrace livestock and a culti- vated crop in rotation: these two things are fundamental, and dry farming ill Montana will succeed . just so far as we are able to in- clude these two elements in it. \It true that it is not pleas- rnt or inspiring' to know that the majority of our farmers are disciples of 'lie 'easy way—the wheat way' of farming. It js . true that there are comparatively' few farmers who will apply them-: selves, their intelligence, and their muscle, to the 'sure way— the only way' to make dry land farming a success. • \ 'Cows. sows and silos' should be the slogan adopted by all who ; are interested in the permanent prosperity of Montana farming.' The fundamental necessity of thel dry land farmer is forage. If he will avail himself of the informa- tion at his command, he can al- ways have material to fill his silos and his hay -mow, and thus have dairy products and meat 'animals for the market. \There is no better method of summer fallowing than growing potatoes, corn, and sunflowers, and these crops, be they light or heavy, will yield the cash and maintain the fertility of the soil,\ TREND OF THE TIMES We have it from the nation's best economic authorities that: .Nlany merchants are laboring under the delusion that prices cannot disip so abruptly as to find them wth a lot of hgh-priced mer- chandise on their shelves which will cause them embarrassment. It is a delusion, however, to be- lieve that any decline in the fu- ture must come gradually. . If conditions causing it are ser- ious enough, it will come with a rush and with a very abrupt tum- bling of values: merchants who have not puraued a conservative policy may feel more than a pinch. There is no slight reason why prices should decline more delib- erately toward the end of the present period of' inflation than they have in the' past when the Iprocess of' deflation) relentlessly sets in. High labor costs will not ste.y such a reaction, nor impede it. The wise merchant will not only prepare his business for the in he will do more than that by getting his stock and his business in shape to withstand a very abrupt tumbling of values. The time for further specula- tive profits by prodigal buying ill anticipation of further ad- vances is past. The Hine for con- servative buying is here and the business men of the country would do well to recognize that fact. The possibilities that the prices will drop before ma- ny months have elapsed are strong and the evidences in sup- port of them, unmistakable. —Mont. Development Also, Appeal Goes East E. G. Toomey, of Helena, attor- ney for the Montana railway com- mission and who was attorney for the Montana trade c 4 om. mission when it was in existence, has forwarded to the United States supreme emirt at Washing- ton the transcript on appeal in the ease decided in the -federal court by Judge Bourquin which decision declared the law creat- ing the trade commission uncon- stitutional. The next tnove iim the appeal will be to ask the su- preme court adVance the case on the calendar, it is said.
