Meeting of City Council
No Change Will Be Made In Early Closing (Bar) By-law - Mr.
Kerr Appears For Petitioners.
A meeting of the "citv ^council
was held Monday evening, the
mayor, Aid. Leckie, Jones, and Cox
being present;
The minutes of the previous
meeting were read and adopted.
Mr. R, B, Kerr, who was present,
said he had been asked to appear
•' on behalf of a number of people
who had submitted to the council
a petition asking them to rescind a
by-law  which  had   been  passed,
, compelling the hotels to close bars
at seven o'clock on Saturday evenings.     He  would  like to remind
them that' the  petition  had  been
signed by a tremendous  majority
of  the; business men of the town.
• It was safe J6 say that fully eighty
per cent, of the business men  had
expressed themselves as being in
favor of keeping the hotels open.
And   not only  the business men,
but largo numbers of working men
, signed the petition, and there was
no doubt that if an effort had been
onade  a much  greater number of
signatures  could   have ; been   obtained.  .,.■"".'■■'.'. ' ' 'ii
Ah attempt had been made, continued Mr. Kerr, to ascertain what
had been the effect ofthe operation
7 of the by-law. Several of the business men had reported a considerable falling off in their trade on
Saturday evenings. Large parties
of people who would otherwise
come into town were going put to
South Okanagan, where the restriction as to hours did 'nipt, apply.
People were thus being driven out
of town to the detriment "ofthe
r^,  .   storekeepers.
Mr, Kerr had also tried-to find
out what had been the result of the
early closing in respect to the sale
of liquor itself. The. most notice-;
able effect had been the large, increase' in the sale of bottles. It wps
easy to guess who the people were
who bought tne bottles.. They
were .of the class who •• wanted
liquor very badly and would not
go without it. So that the by-law
had done nothing towards restraining the heavy drinkers. The man
who had a real craving for drink
would get it anyhow, eyenif he
had to lay in a stock in bottles. In
' fact, he was liable to drink more,
as when he had bottles in the
house he would most likely drink
until they were finished. The bylaw then had done nothing to stop
the sale of liquor.
The man who had been most
affected was the one who made use
of the hotels fpr social objects, and
who had been shut off by the bylaw from the privilege of meeting
his acquaintances in friendly intercourse. The farmer, for Instance,
who had been hard at work all
.week, often came into town Saturday night There were only two
things he could do ; either walk the
streets or go into a bar. It was
rather poor fun walking up and
down the sidewalks, and many
went, into the bar because of the
light and warmth, and pleasant
company. Here he would meet
with friends and incidentally take
a drink. As a rule, he would .not
take more than two or three. This
was the kind of man the by-law
was aimed at. When the bars
were closed at seven o'clock he
was'left with no place in which he,
could meet with friends and enjoy
a pleasant|half-hour, and the only
thing he could do was to stay at
home. There were pebple who
said that it was so important that
the bars should be closed that that
does not matter. But such a policy
had a bad effect on a town.
There was a noticeable tendency
in all small country towns at the
present time for the ', people to
make for the large cities; Why
was it ? It was because there was
no fun in a little town. In Van1
couver, for instance, there were, always lots of amusements, always
something going on. Here it. was
different. In a small place it was
all working and eating. It was this
fact which,was causing the rush to
the big cities.    The aim should be
, anc
• any
was ac-
to make small places livelier
more pleasant to the people
them. Legislation like the by-law
in question made - towns duller.
Kelowna was a muchMulIer town
now than before the by-law was
put'into operation.
There was another thing, the
more Unpleasant we made the
country districts the less likely
people were to come here. It was
a bad policy •■ to make/ a place
worse and worse. It might be in
some degree excusable if' it was
doing some good. But the people
who wanted liquor were getting it
just the same. The bv-law was
simply making the town duller
without doing any good, said Mr.
Kerr, and_he would therefore ask
the council to take steps to alter
the situation.
Government by the people ;vas
one of the principles in the constitution of all cities. In this case
the people had made perfectly
plain what they wanted, and they
should have .their way.
.... Mayor Sutherland assured
TCerr . that the matter would
taken up again at a later stage.
Mayor Sutherland said that some
time ago an application had been
received.from the police magistrate,
Dr. Boyce, for an increase oj salary.
The matter had been laid on the
table at the time pending the return
of Ald.;Jones. He thought it would
now be proper to deal with it,
The following motion
cordingly passed: " That a salary
of $500 be offered to the present
police magistrate, to take effect
from time of appointment."    :
Both Aid,. Leckie and Aid. Jones
spoke in high terms of the work of
Dr. Boyce as magistrate of the city.
Aid. Jones reported that he had
spoken, tp the chief of: the fire
brigade with respect to the need
for more hose. He had said that
in. case a large fire should happen
at the present time there was not
enough hose to handle it. Quite a
lot of what they had was in a very
bad' state, and could not be depended upon. When we have a
fire brigade, said Aid. Jones, who
are so prompt and efficient in their
work, we sjiould give them every
assistance. It was also necessary
to consider the property owners.
He thought they should provide
new hose at once. As much of the
old hose was useless they should
secure at least 500.feet. '
Mayor Sutherland said he would
like to mention that this request
was. not sent in before the est in.at es
were made out, and consequently
no provision had been made for it.
If they bought the hose now, they
would simply have to go into debt
for the amount.
Aid. Leckie said he had also
spoken to the fire brigade on the.
subject. . They had pointed' out
that if more hose was bought they
would have to have more reels to
hold it. He-had explained that
there was already as much hose
as the capacity ofthe pump would
carry. If the. hose was. really
necessary, of course' he was in
favor of getting it.
Aid. Jones said he had understood that another reel was necessary. ' The brigade had assured
him that the hose was necessary,
and he had not cared to take the
responsibility of refusing it. . It
would be a disastrous thing if a big
fire had to break out and get beyond control for want qf a few
feet of hose. :
Mayor Sutherland said if they
went into debt to the amount they
would be sure to receive a certain
amount of blame, but ij: would be
infinitely worse if they were to have
a big fire and not be able to control it.
Mention was made of the greatly
increased price of" hose, which had
gone up 20 per cent.'in the last
four years. Rubber waa up 300
per cent. 7. '•■
Aid. Cox asked what provision
wonld be made for'.the'additional
expenditure.  , •
No provision at all, answered the
mayor. ' They would simply have
to carry it as a debt and let the
new council deal wi^h it.
The following motion was then
passed : " That a fire hose reel and
500 feet of Bioncho Brand hose at
90c, Canadian Rubber Co.'s make
be purchased at once."
The next matter, said the mayor,
was the early-closing by-law. He
might mention that the by-law was
passed two years ago. At that
time, strange to say, the two hotels
were working with the temperance
people to restrict the sale of liquor
in the town. It was to carry out
the wish of both parties that the bylaw was introduced. Now, it does
not seem to be working'very good.
It would be well to get some expression of opinion from the
council before any new by-law was
brought in.
Aid, Cox said he had looked
carefully over the petition which
had been submitted and he could
hot' say that it represented the
opinion of,the people generally.
Only about one-third of those who
signed were ratepayers. Some of
the supporters lived in Vernon and
many others in the country.
Aid. Jones said the situation was
comparatively new to him. He
had been away when the petition
was brought before; the council.
He. had thought that matters were
moving quietly enough until he
had been spoken to by a gentleman
interested in the petition;. The
council, he said, had already dealt
with the matter, and he did not
see that anything more was to. be
done. Nothing had been said to
him about the loss of trade which
was supposed io be going on. He
had certainly not noticed,the town
torn. by. dissension. Nor was he
aware • that South Okanagan was
blossoming into a city on account
of the trade which was being
driven away from here. He thought
the streets of Kelowna still looked
as though business was being done.
He did not think the council should
take any action until the business
men came up in a body and requested them to do so. When they
were assured that it- was the, wish
of the business men and people of
Kelowna, it would, then be time to
take action.
Continuing, Aid. Jones said he
did not think the.council had over-.,
stepped their duties in enforcing
the by-law. It was only in line
with what many other cities and
towns were doing, and he could
hot see that is was imposing any
Mayor Sutherland said they had
rib business to be simply following
what other places were doing, but
he might mention that Armstrong
had reduced their hours tp 9 o'clock
each evening during the week, and
7 o'clock Saturday. That is, they
had. cut off.fourteen! hour's-to our
four. They had s also doubled the
licenses. They had introduced a
by-law closing every evening at 7
o'clock, but after discussion, they
had compromised by closing at 9
o'clock during the week and 7 o'k.
Saturday and. doubling the licenses.
Other towns were passing even
more drastic measures. However,
as he had' said before, they had no
business, to be doing simply as
others were doing. He would like
to know what was the wish of the
Aid. Cox-said he did not think
they were called upon to do anything.

Govern't Ownership
Resident Land Owners Stand
For Broader Sytem of Control.
That the demand for government ownership of irrigation work
is general throughout the valley
was evidenced by the enthusiastic
meeting held last Monday evening
at Okanagan Centre.
ln response to an invitation from
some of the farmers there Mr. M.
Hereron arid Mr. A. R. Muirhead
went up from town and explained
ithe work which was being carried
on by the Okanagan District Irrigation Association, and the purpose of the petitions /which are
being circulated, asking the government to take steps towards the
provision of adequate means of
conserving and distributing the
water which was so necessary a
factor in the success of the valley.
Some thirty people had assembled, and one and all heartily endorsed the project. A copy of
petition was signed by piactically
all present, and a committee of two
appointed to obtain the signatures
of all land holders in the district.

The new Arcade Theatre of Motion Pictures recently opened here
has been getting record audiences.
The pictures appear to have been
of a high standard, and highly
amusing and interesting.
In the small hours of Tuesday
morning the wierd sound of. the
fire syren again aroused the city
from its slumbers. A fire had broken out amongst the lumber piles
in the sawmill yard. The sawmill
night staff were the first to get the
hose going, and the brigade arriving soon after.the blaze was quickly
extinguished, -and comparatively
little/damage done. There is a
•strong suspicion that two men who
had been loitering in the milliard
a short time before the alarm was
given, and had been refused permission to sleep in the mill, were
concerned in the affair, but no evidence is available.
A portion of .the exhibit for the
Westminster show has been on
view during the week in Lawson's
window and has attracted much
attention by its fine quality and
color. Mr. A. E. Boyer, accompanied by Mr. A. R. Muirhead and
Mr. J. Sewell, the packer; leave
tomorrow for the coast, to get the
exhibit ready for the opening of
the fair, which takes' place next
The' orchestral .practice for the
Dramatic- Society is to be held in

Mr. P. Gorman, who has for
some tithe been acting as assistant
to the city clerk, leaves shortly for
Honolulu, where he has received
an appointment as court interpreter,
Mr. Gorman's long residence in
Yokohama having given him a

language. We wish him every
success in his new position.

Pertinent Suggestions For
B.C.  Poultrymen.
Never before in the history of
the production of our eggs, flesh
and feathers has there been so
much intrest as within the past few
monihs. Local poultry associations
and poultrymen generally seem to
be waking to the fact that there is
a future before u*. Undreamed of
possibilities of the past are being
realized in the present and even
the most sanguine of iis must be
convinced that still better results
may be obtained under improved
Our most successful poultrymen
in all parts of the Province had
proved that, under proper conditions and with carefu} and efficient
management, poultry raising" is a
paying proposition, a more profitable industry than many others,
some of which have boomed for
yfears. But we must accept conditions as we find them and make
the best of" them. Poultey^ssocia-
tions aud individu^^^^Jrymen
have not been given tlieerriiaurage-
mpnt they deserve. Those engaged
in the business of poultry-keeping
have gone through dear experiences and have overcome many obstacles; they have had to" work out
their own salvation while the Government stood aloof and the public
were suspicious of possible profits.
But now. we enter upon a new
era with a broad and promising
fiejd before us. The British Colum-
biatPoult^jr Association, was organize^for .the: benefit of every poultryman Hn theprovince.'it*'was organized to strengthen the working
power of the local associations; it
was organized for the purpose of
bringing the Government into
closer touch with the poultry
men in-order that the Government
might be better, able to understand
and appreciate their needs.      ' /./
The work which will be taken
up by the Provincial Association
will be a very broad character, and
will cover every phase pertaining
to the -poultry industrj&v Its primary
object is naturally thos^p'r education, to educate the public to adopt
improved methods in poultry breed
ing in order that the returns for
the money and labor expended in
poultry keeping may be greater
than under .present conditions.
The returns df the poultry keeper
should be greater, and one object
of the Provincial Poultry Association will be to aid all poultrymen
in every possible way.
It will seek to disseminate throughout the province a thorough knowledge of .proper methods of rearing

be to secure a widespread interest
in thoroughbred poultry. It is also
expected that within a year or two
it will hold a provincial poultry
show, which should prove to be
one of the largest and best in Canada.
The following questions will give
some idea of the nature of the
work undertaken by the new association:—
1. About 90 per cent, of all poultry products come from the farm.
How can this association interest
the farmers who are now keeping
scrub stock in standard bred poultry)
2. How can we educate the farmers to produce and care for more
and better poultry?
3. Do we neeg a Standard for
market poultry arid eggs as well as
a Standard for Exhibition Stock?
4. What about the adoption of a
Utility Standard—as applied to the
production, judging and selling of
poultry meat and eggs?
5. What can this Association do
tb encourage co-operation in the
marketing of poultry products?
What are some of the best methods
to adopt?

The report of the University
Commission named by authority of
legislation of last session to select
the location ofthe British Columbia
University has just been made
The report itself, which is absolutely final and decisive as to the
matter of site, reads as follows:-
"Victoria, June 28, 1910:-To
His Honor, The Lieut.-Governor-in
"Sir:—The University Site Commissioner begs to submit the following report:—In accordance with
the provisions of the University
Site Commission Act, 1910, your
commissioners have visited and
made a careful examination of several cities and rural districts suggested as suitable university sites and
have selected as the location for
the university the vicinity of the
city of Vancouver.

Accompanying this 'report-in
chief embodying the finding of the
commissioners, is an auxiliary or
elaborative report addressed to the
minister . of education, Hon. Dr.
Young,, which contains a number
of recommendations as to establishment and future conduct of the

The University site  Commission
are strongly.qf the, opinion that the
university should not be placed on

respectfully suggest  that not  less s
than 250 acres ''be.set apart for the
university campus and 700 acres for .
experimental purposes in agricul- '
ture and forestry.;This is, exclusive
of a forest reserve for forestry  operations on a large scale.
The commissioners are of the
opinion that the.most suitable site
is at Point Grey unless' the soil there

A Wonderful Landscape Painted Entirely From Imagination.
Marvelous were the products of Jefferson's inspiration. He had created
a nchool of his own. He was prone to
portray forest scenes, with troe trunks
of wonderful size, in accurate military
formation. Old mills were a favorite
subject with him, especiafly old mills
with water wheels, and ln some of his
paintings he actually accomplished the
Impossible, for to all Intents and purposes lie succeeded in making the water run uphill. • This having been called
to his attention by an overcritieal
friend, Mr. Jefferson responded that he
was well pleased with the result, for
"few men could have accomplished
When president of the Players club,
u position he held for bo many years
before, his death, Mr. Jefferson presented to the club a large canvas of
his own. If the writer remembers correctly, there was a pond in the foreground, with rushes, a -tumbledown
house and a large and rather theatrical looking forest, all painted, the
artist boasted, in the dead of winter
in his own sitting room and entirely
from his imagination. When It was
first displayed on the walls—for of
course none of the old gentleman's
gifts was ever refused—it attracted
much attention, and one day Mr. Jefferson, being in the 'club, seized a
brother member, who happened to be
a man whose pictures 'had on more
than one occasion won prizes In the
salon, and stood him before bis own
masterpiece. "Now, I want you to tell
me," he said frankly, with his childlike and delightful smile, "what you
think of it."
"Well," replied the painter, responding to the pressure on his arm, "I'd
like to have one hung as well as tbat."
And the old gentleman was delighted.
During his lifetime that picture remained ln its prominent position, and
whenever Mr. Jefferson entered the
club he would manage to maneuver
himself In front of It, regarding it
from all sides and angles, and hardly
ever did a picture receive so much
praise and so little criticism as that
marvelous landscape. —James Barnes
in Bookman.
Thcee  Things  a   White   Person   Must
Have to Live There.
Without a mosquito bar a white pet-
son would be unable to live on tbt-
equator, writes Ida Vera Simonton Jn
the Delineator.
No matter how hot and stifling the
night—and no other place can be so
stifling as the equatorial African
night during the long rainy season in
the midst of the Jangle—one must
sleep under a closely tucked ln mos
quito bar, not the ventilated kind civilization knows, but one- of closely
woven stuff through which no air cir
When tbe mosquito bar was let
4own it took in almost tbe entire room,
but it proved especially useful in sickness and convalescence. It permitted
existence free from insect bites. As
malaria is the white man's most insidious foe and comes from the bite
of the mosquito, every precaution must
be taken against it. Three things are
absolutely necessary in Africa—a mosquito bar, a water niter and quinine.
The bed was made by a native carpenter. The frame was of wood, the-
slats of bamboo ribs fitted closely together witb_the pith side uppermost.
They didn't give a bit and were an
excellent"'dancing floor for the dried
plantain leaves which made the mattress. The leaves were confined beneath, ticking tacked to the four sides
•k the bed, but they matted easily, and
every night It was continuous leaf
turning for me. The bamboo was slippery; and Insomnia kept me and the
leaves on the move, so tbat most of.
tbe time l slept on a hard surface. My
pillow was of dried sweet smelling
grass. Whoever says that hard beds
are beautltiers should sleep upon an
African bed.
Gold Heated Water.
Over 4,000 years ago ah elaborate
system of filtration was established by
tbe Egyptians to purify tbe waters of
tbe Nile. In both Home and Athens bot
water was drunk in preference to
cold by the small minority who used
water for drinking purposes. Cham-
pier, writing In 1560, notes tbat the
habit of drinking hot wafer wa-
spreadlng among all classes In Franc*
"Some warm It by holding it over the
fire. Others dip burning bread into it
Rich people plunge a bar of hot gold
Into their water before drinking it,
and tbe l<*ss wealthy a bar of hot Iron,
while the very poor are content to
warm, their drink with a live coal."

Uncle Zepb had had some trouble
getting about on the cars and com-,
plained of the employees. "When a
conductor is uncivil to you take his
number," said his nephew.
Two days later uncle came in somewhat battered, but looking triumphant.

satisfied air. "but I had to grab the

Metcalfe-s Fruit Report
Mr. J. C. Metcalf in his report to
hand says that although some quotations at the present time for fall
varieties from American points
Would .apparently indicate low
.prices, the general consensus of
opinion on the part of jobbers
generally are that prices for fall
and winter varieties of apples will
not go low. Quotations from the
east for Ontario apples for No. 1 in
barrels (which are very scarce) are
quoted $3.50 to $3.75 with a probable rise to $4 in a very short time,
and when jobbers ask for quotations
from American points prices are
muph higher than when wired unsolicited. Pears and crabs are
firm and in great demand. American prunes have been coming in
freely to these points, in peach
boxes, and although retail prices
were cut very close here jobbers
have been paying f.o.b. American
shipping points for prunes in peach
boxes, 50c. and 55c. per case, I
would advise shippers holding to
fair prices for fall and. winter stock,
particularly .winter, and more
especially if stocks are not heavy,
pack and grade thoroughly. There
is a disposition on the part bf some
shippers to mark grade too high,
especially in marking fancy, forgetting that "Fancy" is • practically
perfection on all points: quality,
size, color and pack, and this applies to crabs as well as apples.
The~ dominion fruit inspector has
no power or authority to re-mark
grade on boxes from what they are
marked by shippers, but he has
power to erase the grade? if not in
conformity wiih ihe Act, and brand
" falsely marked." It will be well
for our growers and shippers to
bear this in mind and. raise the
standard of pack, rather than lower,
as we are certainly establishing an
enviable reputaiiori on B.C. fruit
at the present tinie all over these,
provinces, afnd this reputa.ion, if
sustained arid advanced oh our
fruit products, will ceftai'nly create
an increased demand for them and
command the highest market prices.
At the same time;0ur shippers must
riot forget the7cornpetitiori they
have to meet v from the American
Pacific Coast States "and the; efforts
being put forth by them to reduce
the cost'of production in every way
and their earnest endeavours to
grow and raise the standard of
their fruit products by ■ the latest
and most up-to-date methods.

7 Government Control of
Editor Orchard City Rejcord,
Dear Sir: AA
, I am glad to Vsee:. that'.Government; Control of Irrigation is being
advocated atKelpyn'a.A'It is' the
only way by which stnall landowners
wijl ever secure their rights.. One
of the most important points is
this: there must beanalteration in
the law bywhich any person taking
water out of his turn and depriving
the rightful owner df /the water at
| that time shall be at once be brought
up before a magistrate and fined
very heavily. Justice is not done
if the thief gets his crop irrigated
while die other man is . ..getting, an
injunction. The thief may, perhapj,
after a few months be fined five,
dollars, but the other man has lost
his crop. Punishment must be immediate and. severe.
If the level land round Kelowna
between Mill and Mission creeks
were under Government Control,
there would be a man appointed
with full power to regulate the distribution of the water. He would
draw up a time table showing the
days and hours during which each
landowner would be supplied with
water, and it wpuld hot be given to
him at any other time. This system
is universally applied in all counties
where water is • ever. scarce: of
course it takes . a. year. or two to
adjust satisfactorily. A,
All the little private dams on the
creeks would be done away with,
and a permanent -dam built some
little way up Mission creek, from
which a new ditch or pipe would
be taken out to supply all existing
ditches. The latter would be remodelled and perhaps lined with
concrete .in order to avoid the
present wasteof water.
.No private individual could
undertake this niost useful work ;
only the Government can do it.
The result would be that every
land owner would get his water
without fail at a fixed time,—and
who would not be glad to pay
for it ? Of course, it necessary,
reservoirs must be made up in the
mountains. '

concerning the liquor traffic was a remarkable one. Me said that notwithstanding
the heavy increase in duties that has been

A big cinnamon bear made things
pretty lively a few days ago for a
small party of axemen who were
working for the South Kelowna
Land Co., on the irrigation works
at present under construction. The
axemen in question have a small
camp at Sterling Creek, about five
miles   in   advance    of   the 'main
Mr. McMinn, v/ho was acting as
cook for the party, was busy preparing supper. Putting his head
out of the cook tent, he was not a
little surprised to find himself con:
fronted by a large brown bear with
a white muzzle. He had no gun,
his deadiest weapon being a frying
pan, so he made towards an open
fire, which, fortunately, was burning
brightly. Bruin followed and the
two played " Follow the Man from
Cook's " around the fire for a short
while. McMinn found this amusement growing stale, so he picked
up two pans and gave a musical
selection, which the bear did not
mind in the least. It was necessary
to scare tha.t bear away somehow,
so tho cook tried the effect of a
burning chunk of wood. This
certainly did not meet with his approve1, so he turned his back on
the fire, and with evident disdain
walked to a refuse hole about
twenty yards away. Here he
found something to his liking and
began feeding on the scraps thrown
out by the cook.
McMinn took the opportunity to
sprint off down a narrow trail to

The people of Chicago spend $1,000,000
Der week in the saloons or $52,000,000. a
year. Add to this the other forms of liquor
drinking and you have probably 100,000,-
000 dollars a year. Some fools still live
in Chicago,
refuse pit, but when he saw the
reinforcements arriving he made
off into the thick bush.
But he came back! About an
thour and a half after the party
were talking together in the eOok
tent. One of them looked out and
saw the bear not fifty paces off.
He fired, but missed, and the beast
made off again into the bush, followed by two men with guns.
Alex. Berrard and McMinn remained in the cook te;;t. Before
an hour passed the bear was
back again from another direction.
He had evidently set his heart on
that cook tent, probably sniffing the
savoury odors of the supper. The
two left in the tent were without
weapons, so they shouted to their
companions with the guns. They
heard the shout and came running
back, but it was how so dark they
could not see the sights on the
guns and their  shots missed again.
The party was left in peace for
some time after that and began to
think the bear had decided to quit.
But that bear was no quitter ! He
had started out to get into the cook
tent, and he meant to do it.
When Alex. Berrard went to his
tent about eleven o'clock, he found
a big hole torn in the side. They
all went to bed, however, but about
midnight they were aroused by a
fearsome noise of breaking pots
and pans in the cook tent. The
guns were got out again and an attempt made to scare off their unwelcome guest, who had evidently
achieved hjs purpose. The night
was too dark to see anything, however, and the men returned to their
Daylight found the bear still by
the cook tent. Alex. Berrard was
the fust to see it. He called to the
men with the guns, and this time
they managed to wound the brute
in the shoulder. He made off
again, and was traced for about
half a mile through the bush by the
blood drops, and then • the trail
was lost.
Ihe interior of the cook lent was
a mass of wreckage, broken pots
j and pans, and blood and bones all
over the place.

Government Irrigation
- Work in Arizona
Great Roosevelt Dam in
Salt River Valley
The current issue of the Pacific
Monthly contains an article wh ch,
in view of the'agitatioh for.govern-
ment ownership of irrigation works
in the valley, has a strong interest
as showing what the UA government are already achieving on" the
same lines.
Roosevelt's administration, says
the writer, E. P. Clarke, left many
monuments that in years to come
will remain to testify its practical
efficiency and high patriotism; and
one of these is the Roosevelt Dam
in the. Salt River Valley, Arizona,
an achievement in every way well
fitted to perpetuate the honored
name it bears.
When the Roosevelt Dam system
was first planned it was officially
known as the Tonto Basin project.
The work oh this great enterprise,
which has been in progress for the
last seven years, is now completed,
and the people of Arizona hope
that the formal dedication of the
Roosevelt Dam will be made by
Colonel Roosevelt himself on his
next birthday in October.
About the first conclusion reached after seeing the dam, continues
the writer, is that the government
engineers picked an ideal site for
it. The canon is so narrow at this
point that the top of the. dam is
only 1,080 feet across. At- the
base it is less than half this width.
The dam is 280 feet high and 1 70
feet, thick at the base. Qn the, top
it is twenty feet thick. It is curved,
with the convex side tward the lake.
The structure is built of calcareous
sandstone blocks set in concrete,
and the rock is quarried, and the
cement for the concrete made
light on jthe ground.
On either side of the dam there
are. great spillways, 200 feet wide
ahd 220 feet above the bed of the
stream. Through these will pass the
surplus water and a certain amount
of the summer supply. If the lake
falls below this' level, or there is
any other occasion to utilize another escape for the water, there is
a tunnel through the solid rock on
the north side of the dam about a
third of the way from the top.
Then there is still another tunnel
at the. bottom of the dam for
'  One of the first pieces of work
done in connection with this pro.
ject was  the  construction of the
road from the  valley. . The  next
step  was  to provide  power, and
the engineers went up the valley of
the Salt River about twenty  miles
and put in a diversion dam for a
power canal.     From that point a
ditch was built which brought the
water  down  co  the  dam   and  a
power-house  was located just below the dam site and an up-to-date
power plant installed.
- The  electricity  from  this plant
was harnessed  to  do ,the  heavy
work on the dam.   The stone was
moved  by   -derricks   and    cable
carriers operated   by   electricity;
the cement mill  was run. by  the
same power, and also the concrete
mixer.   . Then   there   was a little
trolley line that ran up the valley a
few miles to bring down the clay
for the cement mill.    There were
pneumatic drills for rock work and
everywhere the efficiency of modern machinery was utilized.
Back of theTdam is a~ broad
valley with 'two branches, running
back into the mountains. Down
one of these flows the Salt River
and down the other Tonto Creek
The point where the two streams
came together is now covered by
the waters of the lake created by
.the dam, and the rains of another
season will undoubtedly extend the
lake for some distance up the valleys of the two creeks. There is
ample room to store the tun-off
from the great drainage basin of
nearly 1,800 square miles which
supplies the water for these two
mountain streams. Whert full, the
lake will cover 17,000 acres and
will run hack into the hills some
twenty-five miles.
At the present time the amount
of water back of the dam is about
200,000 acre feet, or enough' to
cover 200,000 acres a foot deep.
But that is only the beginning of
the work of storage; when the lake
is full it will have 1.200,000 acre
feet of water.
The trouble in the past has been
that there was no storage of water
for dry season* and no permanent
diversion dams. If the river went
on a rampage, as it sometimes does
from sudden and heavy • rains in
the mountains, the diversion dams
would be washed out and the
canals would go ' dry because, of
floods. That is a paradoxical
statement, but too much water may
cause a drouth in' a country depending on irrigation from'a stream
'hat is subject to great fluctuations.
f'S. "
It is easy to understand how a
shortage of water in the river will
work great hardships to the irrigator, but it is not so easy to appreciate
conditions where a flood may come
down in a night, wash out the head-
gates of the canal system, afid cut
off the supply for weeks, even
though there ;is plenty of water
running in the stream. In fact the
more water there is the harder it is
to repair the diversion dam. In
years past the ' settlers in the Salt
River Valley have seen their alfalfa
fields dry up and. their orange
groves wither because they could
not get water when it was most
needed. But those conditions of
uncertainty and danger have been
removed under the administration
of the Reclamation Service. Not
only are the storage reservoir, and
the diversion dam built to withstand the vicissitudes of the ages,
but the canals have been enlarged
and improved and other improvements made in the main distributing system so as to insure a steady
and unfailing supply of water.
The Reclamation Service has not
yet given Out any exact figures on
the cost of this project as completed,^ but it is estimated that including the road, dam power-canal,
power-plant, cement mill, diversion
dam and canals, the total cost'
would be $8,640,000. It has
probably exceeded the estimate
and the total may be as high as
Ultimately the water-users will
repay the cost, watever it is, and
the money will go back into the
reclamation fund to repeat this
beneficient work somewhere else
in Arizona. The payments will be
divided into ten installments and
may "run to three or four dollars
per acre per year. ♦When the
Reclamation Service is repaid, then
the plant will belong to the people
who take water from it. Recently
it has been suggested that the
water-users vote bonds to repay
the entire cost of the project to the
Government, but this plan does
not meet with much favor among
the settlers. They feel that they
would rather owe the Reclamation
Service than' a bunch of Wall-street
fihancit rs who might work some
scheme tb get hold of this great
irrigation system that has been developed by the Gouernment for
the people. It is suspected that
" the interests " are back of this
scheme for a bond issure.
In the distribution of the water
the^ Reclamation Service does hot
deal >with the individual irrigator.
The Government handles the irrigation proposition as far as the
delivery of water in the main canals
is concerned. This being done, it
is up to the setders to organize to
distribute the water to their farms.
The policy of the Government is
to deal with groups of men organized in water comanies or associations. In the Salt River Valley the
great > Water-Users' ' Association
represents the people in all relations
with the Reclamation Service and
the details of the mutual administration are being worked out in a
satisfactory manner. '
The cost of the care of the canals.
and distribution of water is about
one dollar and fifty dents per acre
annually. '

Tragic Mark on the  Steal Skeleton ot

"See (hat big blob <•! smiliM i.iim?"
Bald the engineer as lie iniimcd .in u

new skyscraper. "Tiim i-"d spin nn .ms
that one of the mon wurUing on iin-
building waa killoil i>y iln> girder
sweeping him off tlie siniomre while
being put in position" ^
The visitor craned his mvis and saw
a rough patch of vermilion paint on
one of the floor girders up on ihe six-
teenthstory. "It must ben ^.-tngerous
life," he said to his engineering friend
"Yes. Those men up there nre work

the topmost girder. :n*. feel above I lie

five inches wide-nnd will lean outward against ihe wind. You or I
couldn't do it for a second.
"Now and again there's an accident.
A chap slips. A worker gets hit by a
swinging girder anil thing off. Another man takes an incautious slep and
falls off Into eternity. The men working near by do their best to get at him
if he manages lo grab the girder he's
falling from, and (here are some swift
and reckless races with death to get
to their comrade at any cost in the five
or ten seconds allowed thorn while
strong fingers are sliding away from a
slippery beam tiange. if the worst
happens and tlie man falls in spite of
their efforts, then they apply the da I)
of red paint, and the ironworkers call
it a day. They don't speak much of
the man that is gone, as a rule. He's
soon forgotten. The men consider it
"You'd think, by the way," went on
the engineer, "that the higher up these
men worked the more careful they'd
become. They aren't particularly careful, but they do guard against the
hypnotism of height. One of the men
working on a high girder gets paralyzed now and again by( a sudden fear
that holds him motionless aud still on
his lrou beam.
"The men look out for this sort of
thing, and the femedy Is to distract
his attention by a rough blow on the
back or ln some cases by exciting him
to anger through any means in their
power. When the man gets fighting
mad he is freed from the paralysis of
terror or whatever you may choose to
call It. He gets up from his girder to
make a rush for the other fellow to
do him up, and the moment he is safe
he is restrained by the other men.
"Whenever you see a skyscraper
framework," concluded the engineer,
"each dab of scarlet paint on the iron
means that some man has come to his
death. Every skyscraper and every
bridge is the monument to some little
group of unknown workers, laboring
at dizzy heights and dallying with sadden death as part of their day's work."
