Big City Dam at Valentine
Washes Out Wednesday
Morning Just After
Filling With Water.
The city's big dam' across the
Minnechaduza washed out Wednes
day morning just after filling with'
water , taking over 100 feet of the
spillway down to the bottom.
The huge volume of water rush-
el like the Johnstown flood down
the canyon , washing away hogs ,
chickens and cattle of J. G. Gas-
kill at Deer Park near the moath
of the Minnechaduza , and did con
siderable other damage to prop
erty , buildings and fence.
A thrill of excitement and con
sternation seized the citizens of
Valentine when the first words
passed around stating the big dam
had gone out.
3 ' -
Many citizens had predicted it ;
and in almost breathless' , but un
warranted hope , they thought of
it and hoped it was only a rumor
bat soon learned-f rom eye wit
nesses that it was a sad but pain
fully true story.
The village board claims that
they were asked to receive the
work but had not yet done so , and
that the loss will fall to the con
tractors who are bonded- fulfill
Whether the work was faulty
or the construction bad we do not
know , but the dam washed out as
so > n as filled and something was
Several weeks ago when they
thought they had it completed and
started to fill it the water washed
under the big concrete apron over
t'ie spillway and it was discovered
ia tinn to let the water out and
save the dam , and repairs were
bagun and an extra fill of dirt put
upon the upper side which they
thought was necessary to save it ,
but something was wrong and it
went out as soon as filled up.
.This will mean several months
of delay at best before the dam
can be replaced and thousands of
dollars extra expense which will
have to be borne by the contrac
This big dam was begun last
spring and though it was to have
been completed last fall , in Octob
er or November , the work was
delayed by having only a small
force of apparently incompetent
men , or bad management , as they
they seemed to miss every estimate
or guess as to time of completion.
