We have passed that, we are at the $18,000 item. Reverting to that I would say that this is in connection with the inspection by our officers of the canals, especially in relation to the granting ot water-powers. The hydraulic engineer from time to time goes out and visits the several canals when applications come in asking for powers. He makes a report to the department and it is upon those reports that I am able to determine whether these applications shall or shall not be granted. The amount expended from July 1st last to Jan. 31st was a shade over $1,000.
