A majority in number of the holders of title, or evidence of title, to lands susceptible of one mode of irrigation from a common source or combined sources, and by the same system or combined systems of works, may propose the organization of an irrigation district under this act- provided, said holders of title or evidence of title shall hold such title or evidence of title to at least one-half part of the total area of the land in the proposed district- provided, further, that every signer of a petition for the organization of an irrigation district shall be the holder of title or evidence of title to at least five acres of land within the proposed district. The equalized county assessment roll next preceding the presentation of a petition for the organization of an irrigation district shall be sufficient evidence of title for the purpose of this act, but other evidence may be received, including receipts or other evidence of rights of entrymen on land under any law of the United States, and such entrymen shall be competent signers of such petition, and the land on which they have made entries shall, for the purpose of said petition, be considered as owned by them. Such entrymen shall share all the privileges and obligations of freeholders and owners of private land within the district, under the several provisions of this act, including the right to vote and hold office, subject to the terms of the act of Congress entitled An act to promote reclamation of arid lands, approved August 11, 1916. The petitioners may determine in said petition whether the proposed district shall be divided into three, five, or seven divisions, and whether it shall have three, five, or seven directors, but if no number is named in the petition the board of county commissioners may determine whether the number shall be three, five, or seven.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
