There is beginning: to be serious
doubts, about the supply of
warpaths being: equal to the
demand.
Ex-Supervisor Truax was over
from Adamana last week on
business at the County seat. He
came in home lately from Denver
and Broomfield, Colorado, where
he purchased a fine quarter
section ol sugar beet land.
m
Mr. C. P. Murray came in from
Santa Ne, N. M., where he had
been in attendance upon court as
witness in an important case,
Monday, and continued to his
home in Springerville.
COMMUNICATION
- Recorder Jesus. Peralta came
in4ro,m Blaekroek, N. M. last
Friday, bringing: along: his
family and will remain here some
time.
And nowjsome of the Apaches
,so want to go on the warpath.
The hearing: given a teacher
in Dist. No. 11, Friday resulted
favorably to the teacher in every
point. Mr. Robert Uverson had
accused Miss Alice Berry of ex
cessively whipping his boy, and
complained to Mrs. Greer who
talked to the accused teacher and
advised her to cease such pun
ishment. Miss 'Berry denied the
accusation and demanded a hcar-
jing, also refusing- to cease her
mode of discipline, in such cases
as she deemed sufficient offense
to use the switch.
MissBerry demanded ahearing j with 321,000 cubic yards of ex-
and was granted one; and all the
evidence given was absolute
proof of the falsity of the ac
cusation. And chairman Wil
liam Gibbons and Mr. Heap
declared Miss Berry totally ex
onerated and given authority to
punish as she deemed advisable,
in as much as she was well aware
of the limit to which she could
go. And she was advised to
continue her discipline without
restrictions.
Mr. Oversou stated that his
boy was physically unable to
attend school, but he desired him
to go and did not want him pun
ished. Since the teacher was
wholly unaware of the boy's
physical condition and not at all
responsible for such condition,
she could not favor the boy.
Kvery child alike are subject to
the rules of school and if any are
unable to comply therewith in
deportment must suffer the pen
alty, or if physically unable
should be kept out of school.

A Washington, dispatch of re
cent date says:
The reservoir to be. created in
New Mexico north of Las Cruces
by the great Fugle Dam will
have a capacity of 2,000,000 acres
feet, or twice that created by the
Assuan Dam in Egypt, and in
the world.
Owing to the great demand
.nade on the reclamation fund in
other .localities, the money for
this entire project is not yet
available. Recognizing the mi
portance of early action, how
ever, the seeretary of the in
terior, on Det ember 2, 1905,
allotted the sum of $200,000 for
the immediate construction of
that portion of the project known
as the Leasburg Diversion. It
is this dain with canal to connect
it with the old Las Cruces system
for which contract has just been
let. Work will be pushed rapidy
during the winter, and it is
hoped that water can be supplied
to 15,000 acres in Mesilla Valley
during the irrigating season of
1907.
The secretary of the interior
has executed a contract on behalf
of the United States, and ap
proved the bond of Contractor P.
Nelson of San Antonio, Texas,
for the construction and comple
tion of this diversion dam and
canal.
The contract calls for the con
struction of six miles of canal
cavation, the furnishing and driv
ing of 35,000 linear feet of round
piles and 170,000 feet board
measure of sheet piles, and 2,600
cubic yards of concrete for the
sum of $100,180.50
The letting of this contract
launches the government on the
great work of constructing the
Rio Grande project, one of the
largest and most expensive of
the irrigation works of the re
clamation service,
This project contemplates the
construction of a huge dam west
of Engle, New Mexico, to store
water for the irrigation of 180,
000 acres, 110,000 of which lie
in New Mexico. The cost of the
entire system is estimated at
$7,200,000. The main item of
cost is the dam, which will re
quire 300,000 barrels of cement,
a large amount of machinery,
gates, etc., entailing a heavy
outlay for freight. It is estimat
ed that the dam will cost approxi
mately $5,300,000, It will be
225 feet higt, 190 feet thick on
the bottom, and 20 feet on top.
It will be 1150 feet Jang.,' on. top
of the crest. Chieftain.
