at runs through to the east line
of Peckham precinct, a distairce of
over thirty miles, is now in a fair
way to be completed. It will be
remembered that this big enterprise
which wias started last spring was
temporarily abandoned for lack of
fufedl&Mffiarrv on the work. During

irsPgBpietriqt was formed under
thfefisions of the Akers' act,
but as there has been some doubt
as to the constitutionality of that
measure, an election for the pur
pose of voting bonds was not held.
The decision of the. state supreme
court last Tuesday declaring the
Akers' law to be constitutional, has
removed all difficulties and an elec
tion for the purpose of voting
$65,000 in bonds for the construc
tion of the ditch will be held some
time next month.

who have the contract tor construct

finish the construction of the ditclr
and accept bonds in payment there
for. This virtually insures the
completion of the ditch in the near
The stockholders of the Gaslin
ditch are to be congratulated upon
the apparent surety of the comple
tion of their great enterprise, which
at one time seemed to be jn a hope
