OUR ANTIQUITIES GOING
NOT A MUSEUM HERE?
(Continued from Page One)
connection with the early craftsmen
ar.d craftswomen who lived here cen
turies ago? With each generation
the interest in and love for these
relics increase. With each passing
month our scattered stores of them
decrease. These relics are immense
ly valuable to institutions and pri
vate collectors in eastern states and
foreign lands. Aren't they worth
-an thing to Flagstaff ".'
The visitor here can find some of
these interesting relics on display at
our curio stores. They are placed
there fir sale. They are being carried
away to other cities and other states
daily, and even these commercial dis
plays will soon be a thing of the past.
Some action should bo taken about
this, at oi.ce. Each year that passes
will make it more expensivo to act
and the result to be gained will be
smaller. There should be some des
ignated organization, one of those
now existing ci another organized for
that specific purpose, charge.l with
the duty of gathering, cataloging and
housing just as many and as great a
variety of these relics as it is possible
to get hold of.
It will cost some money, but it
will be an investment well worth mak
ing. The city could and should assist
by appropriation if necessary. Our
citizens will many of them assht fi
nancially, once the work is organized
along definite and proper channels,
and many more will assist in a fctill
more important way, by contributing
ad or part of the collections they
now have. If the matter were proper
ly handled, we could within three
months have a museum of our own,
worth traveling many miles to see, a
museum that would preserve for us
the memory, traditions and habits of
the interesting people who lived here
before we came, a museum that would
enhance in interest and value each
year and ultimately would become fa
mous all over this country, if not, in
deed, throughout the entire world.
It would be a wonderful work for
the Woman's club. If taken hold of
in a vigorous way by that organiza
tion, it would hasten the financing of
their proposed new club house, for
it would give it a greater importance
in the minds of people outside of the
membership. Because that clubhouse
could house and that organization
handle the. collection and care for it.
If the Woman's club would adopt a
Tell your grocer
ciate the economy
which comes from
vigorous and definite plan along this
line, it undoubtedly would result in
financial help that would make their
club house something soon to be real
ized. It would also give the organiza
tion greater permanency, something
additional worth while to work for.
What a fine thing it would be to
have that big club-house, with a mu
seum of our own antiquities, perhaps
also containing the city library. Flag
staff would have something to be
proud of, something she will ultimate
ly keenly regret not having unless our
public-spirited people get busy.
The Sun does not claim credit for
this idea. It was brought to our no
tice in a letter recently received by
J. C. Clarke of Flagstaff from Harold
J. Colton of Ardmore, Pa., who knows
this country better than most of us
do and who is a collector of note of
ficially connected with the University
of Pennsylvania at Philadelphia. Mr.
Clarke is himself a collector who gives
all his spare time to the work. Mr.
Colton in his letter said:
"There is a growing interest in the
antiquities about Flagstaff. Would it
not De possible for those interested
to form a local antiquary society so
that the collections that have been
made by the local residents can be
brought together in a local museum,
which, if properly handled, would be
a benefit to 'science and an added re
source to the city of Flagstaff. If
such a society should be formed I
would be very glad to aid it in any
way that I can.
''It is a shame that-valuable mater
ial which is dug up every year is un
recorded and sold to outside agents."
CITY HIRES ENGINEER
TO RUSH DEVELOPMENT
BIGGIR WATER SUPPLY
(Continued from Page One)
about 35 per cent more. The type
recommended, to be fed by a 14-inch
pipe line, is concrete lined, excava
tion being made sufficient to secure
ifirm foundation. A 90-million gal
lon reservoir of that type, built during
,the war, when materials were higher
than now, cost $260,000. Mr. Quay
believes that a hundred-million gal
lon reservoir with the new pipe Tine
and the enlargement of the distribut
ing lines here in town will cost not
to exceed $300,000.
The engineer makes their prelimin
ary examination and report for $1,
000. It will cost much more than
that, but it is a gambling proposition
with them up to that point and if the
project is gone ahead with they will
complete the plans and supervise the
construction, the fee being 5 per cent
of the contract price, which will cover
the preliminary fee.
Questions coming up were the
clause in the present water contract
with the Santa Fe R. R., according to
which the railroad's right to build an
additional reservoir here does not ex
pire for three years yet It was be
lieved however, that the railroad
company will be glad to have the city
go ahead with the work rather than
do it themselves.
The other question was whether the
Spencer water right? would in any
way interfere with the city's develop
ment of water. C. B. Wilson, who at
tends to the legal work for Mr. Spen
cer, said all of the Spencer work is
at a much lower level than our wa
ter system and the two could in no
way conflict, and that it had been ex
pressly stipulated between Mr. Spen
cer and the national forest reserve
when he was given his water develop,
ment rights that they should in no
way interfere' with the city's develop-
It's toasted. This
one extra process
lives a delightful
quality that can
net he duplicated
ment of its own rights in its own ter
ritory. There was some discussion of wa
ter rates with the railroad, the prob
able amount of water it would use,
and other minor details relating to
the bond issue to cover the cost of the
The big thing is that work is un
der way. We will have to trust to
providence to keep us supplied with
water as liberally next year as this.
After that, we will be able to take
care of ourselves through having
make adequate provisions to draw
from the immense reservoir stored up
there under the peaks, water from
the melting snows filtered down to
the natural underground reservoir;
and ready, pure and sparkling, to be
piped down here in sufficient quanti
ty to care for all the possible needs
of a city twice as large as this.
We got our warning last year when
the water in the smaller city res
ervoir gave out entirely, the water in
the larger one nearly giving out in
spite of the railroad having been cut
out of most of its supply and our citi
zens being prohibited from using wa
ter for lawns or gardens. Had this
year been dry also, our mills would
not be running, the railroad would
not be getting water, our lawns and
trees would be dead andfperhaps we
would be going without baths.
Flagstaff's need of water is con
stantly increasing, and will increase
much faster, even though our natural
increase in population is halted, once
the sanitary ordinance is enforced
and every householder is compelled to
put in toilet facilities and sewer at
tachment. T. A. Riordan expressed the opin
ion of those present when he said that
while others had been talking about
boosting Flagstaff, building a new
hotel, and the like, in a laudable de
sire to see the city grow in propor
tion to its natural advantages, he had
not been enthusiastic because he had
felt all along that the one important
thing to be first taken care of was a
big, permanent water supply. With
that assured, he said, he would join
the boosters for the other things nec
essary to make us grow, all of which
must depend on an adequate water

The contract with Burns & McDon
nell engineering company, provides
for preliminary surveys and the inves
tigation of water supply, pipe lines,
reservoir and the distribution system
in the town of Flagstaff. The prelim
inary surveys will require about two
months to complete, and the cost will
be $1,000. After the preliminary sur
veys the bond election will be called,
and after the election, if the bonds
carry, the final plans and specifica
tions will be completed.- Then Bums
& McDonnell agree to suervise the
contraction of the system, turning the
plant over to the city after comple
tion. The entire engineering expense
will be five per cent of the cost of
Burns & McDonnell have been in
work as engineers for 26 years, spec
ializing in hydraulic work, having de
signed water works installations in
about 300 cities, extending from Penn
sylvania to the Pacific coast Some
of the most recent ones are Riverside,
Calif.; Boulder, Colo.; Cedar Rapids,
Iowa, and Springfield, 111.
As soon as preliminary reports are
complete, they will be presented to
the town council, to the Rotary club,
and to mass meetings. A force of
engineers will begin investigations in
Flagstaff within a week or ten days
and one of the members of the firm
will be in charge of such work.
Before employing Burns & McDon

places where this firm had charge of
engineering work, and all replies
BOY WHO DISAPPEARED
IS NOW ON WAY HOME
The search for 13-year-old Earsil
Farrand, son of C. N. Farrand of Los
Angeles, was brought to an end when
the boy's father received from the lad
a telegram saying "on my way home
to Los Angeles to go to school."
Young Farrand disappeared from a
Nogales hotel after his father had
turned over to him $1800. The police
had been acting on the theory that
the boy might nave been the victim
of foul play.
