First. There should be a limited

of the project.
Second. Such a grant or concession
should, be accompanied in the act
making the arrant bv a' provision ex
pressly making it the duty of a des
ignated official to annual the grant if
the work is not begun or plans are
not carried out in accordance with
the authority granted.
Third. It should also be the duty
of some designated official to see to
it that in approving the plans the
miximum development of the navi
gation tad power is assured, or at
least that in making the plans these
may not e s developed as ultimate
ly to interfere with the beter utili
sation of the water or' complete de
velopment of the power.
Fourth. There should be a license
fee or charge, whieh, though small
or rational at the outset, can in the
future be adjusted so as to secure a
.control in the interest of the public.
Fifth. Provision should' be made
for the termination of the. grant or
