Tylll Jo first Installed nre now being hauled
trom Clasoll to Canyon Ferry. 'Half ' of the

delivered nt the power house. The heaviest
( pieces have all been hauled , afid no dimculty
or delay Is anticipated In setting up the

Tielng constructed and will KOCCI bo completed.
'At ' present only one-half of what the power
Jioiifv Is designed to bo will bo completed ,

03 almost completed. There Is every reason
to expect the plant will bo as well equipped

as could 1)3 cxpecled.
"You understand , of couree , Ihal It Is nol
expected la now utilize the full power avail

Einaller llmai lha'o intended to uupply llio
inotlvo power for the generators. When flc-
Hlrcd , other turbines may bo put In and othci
generators added to the equipment- that

nUILDIN'O TIIR DAM. .
In llio conatruclloni of Iho dam lhat has
just been complete } 2,000,000 feet of lumber
rwero used nnd 7,000 cubic yards of granite
nuisoucry built , whllo the rock fills below
'nnd above the dam aggregate 11,000 cubic
yards and the earth fills 23,000 cubic ynrda.
The construction of the dam Is a Umber crib
filled with rock with three aprons to break
the fall of water. The aprons are built of
two courses of 10x12 timbers laid on the
itwolvo-Inch side , thus giving a total thick
ness of twenty Inches of solid timber. The
rises nro covered with two thlckneaacs of
three-Inch plank lap-jointed and the back
iwllh two-Inch plank similarly laid , against
which a dirt fill Is placed and rlprapped be
low any possible wave actlcia or Iloattag
Uelow Iho dam for a dlslanco of twenty-
flvo feet the river was filled with largo rock
to the surface of the water , llio rock be.'ng
liold In plnco by i close row of round piles.
, The distance from plank facing on back of
ilam to the row of round piles Is approxi
mately Bcventy-llvo feet. The crest Is twcnly-
nlno feet above mean low water and the
Jceiglh \ 4S5 feet.
The cribbing reals on. the beil of the river
( which la a. compact material composed of
Bravel arad grnnlto sand and practically Im-
( pervlous to water. Coffer dams , with the
' ( ilieut piling forming same , being driven to
depths of only four and five feet had their
enclosed spaces exceptionally free from water
when working tinder n head of ten feet with
the material excavated ns close lo Hit- piling
as Its natural slope- would allow without un
dermining the sheet pilw.
Doth above and below the cribbing was
'driven a row of triple-lap sheet piling , built
of : ix2 Inch plno plank sillily
liolled together driven to n depth of twelve
feet below the bed of Iho river or , when the
ajiaUrKi ! was too hard , until the pllo was
in danger of splitting , or wcuhl go no farther
under the blows of a 2,250 jwund hammer
falling onlo nn 1.100 pound cast follower
placed on tlio head of the pile. All masonry ,
where possible , had a similar row of alieet
piling driven around Its foundation < is an
uxtra precaution ugalnst a current forming
under the structure.
Government Investigators at the slto placed
itho flow of the river , at mean low water ,
at 3,300 cublo feet per necccid , ( tils amount
with n twenty-ulna foot wall gives 5,951,250
foot pounds per second or 10S7fi horse power.
On the east bank of the elver a fill , with
a elope of c no und one-half by one feet on the
down stream and two to one on tlio up stream
Ride , was built with a irasonry core to Iho
height of the abutment and extended back
tn the corresponding contour on the hill eldo.
This fill Is practically an extension of the
dam proper , hut not designed as a wolr.
Adding the length oC the till , 2S5 feet to tdo
crest length , 485 feet , gives a tolal longlh
from west abutment to east end of 770 feet.

An old prospector tells n story of the
first dnys of mining In Idaho which sounds
Ilko n romance , but which he vouches for

"The llrst nnd of plnccr gold In Idaho , '

Iii62 by Jim Warren , a prospector who pir
In the time when not engaged In the lleh
In patronizing the gaming table. A lltllo
camp had been eslabllshed at Florence , bit
the diggings were poor nnd there wns so
lltlle lo be made that the men drifted uway
In litlle squads to find betlcr pay. Warren
and four others started out together , bu
soon afterward n disagreement nrost nm
Warren left the party to go It alone. After
two or three days he cnmped one evening on
the stream now known ns Warren creek
nnd , there being fair Indications , the ncx
day was spent In prospectlr.jr.
"Panning seven pans of dirt ho saved the
proceeds and taking samples ot the quartz
went back to Florence , -where the gold wns
weighed and found to bo worth 70 cents , or
10 cents to the pan. This was not a big
thing for those days , but It led to the ex
pectation of be-tler slrlkes , and nn expedi
tion of sixteen men was organized to In
vestigate the new llnd.
"On Ihelr way lo Warren creek thej
came ncross Warren's four companions
from whom ho liad parted several days
previously. They were 'tin-horns' ' and poor
prospectors , nnd had been unsuccessful
Heelng"Warren with the crowd , they con
cluded that ho had made a strike and fol-
iMved him. Warren nnd his friends , no
caring to share the discovery with the four
men , resorted lo n ruse lo throw them off
the scent , nnd spent several dnys on Secesl
creek , so-called form the war of secession
which had then been recently heard of
The four gamblers , being nearly out of
provisions , were frozen out and compelled to
return to Florence. The expedition thei
hastened to Warren creek and staked on
the Warren meadows for themselves and
their friends. Eight men were sent back
to Florence for provisions , the rest remain
ing to work the claims. Whllo the eight
men were gone some of those who re
mained discovered better diggings at Sum
mit flat , obtaining from $2 to $1 to the pan
"Tho claims at Wnrron meadows were
abandoned , and new claims staked out on
the new Held. When the men returned from
Florence with the provisions they were fol
lowed by about COO miners , who suspectci
that rleh dirt had been found , and swarmci'
along Wnrren creek and Its tributaries ,
making rich llnds everywhere. The orlglna
locators were extremely fortunate In
the Summit lint diggings. Two men nnmei
Hesse and O. good worked together am
docked out 100 ounces the llrst day and fortj
ounces during tno next forenoon. The assaj
ollico had just been established at IJolse
and this 110 ounces ot dust were the llrsl
receipts of tlu > olllce. The gold was foum
lo bo worth ? 14 an ounce , the net returns
of the two men for n day and a halt being
$1,8CO. In three weeks Hint party of six
teen men had taken out from their claims
on Summit Hat 30,000 ounces of gold. Be
fore the close ot the season 100,000 ounces
were taken out. and the original members
of the expedition had enough money to
keep them comfortably for life. About as
much more was taken out during the next
season before the bar was exhausted.
"Tho honesty of the miners In those
pioneer days was Illustrated by an Incident
which occurred during the stampede Trom
Florence. InUio crowd of OX ) that fol
lowed the eight men sent to Florence after
provisions was a man nicknamed 'Boston/
of a thrifty turn , who bought two barrels
of whisky and a wagon hauled by a pair
of mules , his knowledge of the average
prospector lending him to the conclusion
that the crowd , limited to water aa a
boverag-e , would soon begin to suffer from
the pangs of thirst. On the way to the dig
gings one , Vandeventer , offered him a hand ,
some advance on Iho llrst cost ot the
whisky , and the offer being accepted the
whisky was turned over to Vandovonter ,
who sat the barrels on end under a tree ,
took out the bends , 'hung a tin dipper on
the side of each barrel , llxod a contribu
tion box up against a tree , with a slot In
the closed lid , and went on with the crowd
leaving the Improvised saloon to take care
of Itself. The miners passing to and fro
would take a drink , drop a contribution
Into the box and pass on. Sometimes several
drinks would be taken without a re
sort to the buckskin , but In the end the
drinks were well paid for , nuggets worth
$1 or more being frequently dropped Infer
for a single drink. Strange as It may seem ,
there was no excessive indulgence nt the
barrels , anel no one meddled with the con
tribution box , and before the close of the
reason Van's barrels formed one of the
lni'iiniarks ' ot the country. Vandoventer
pulled out a handsome sum from his mining
claim , and when cold weather set In re
turned to Ills barrels , built a cabin nnd
opened u saloon In duo form , making a
good clenn-up from his contribution box.
AH long as the diggings lasted he kept his
regtiiav bar , but always had a keg of
whisky , a cup and a contribution box on
the outside of the cabin , to accommodate
those who preferred this method of In
dulging in the miners' delight. "

Under the Inllnenco of the Elaine disaster
the stock market was uiiBCtllcMl nt ithe end
ot last week , Liquidation continued on
Monday , the holiday on the succeeding day
creallng a desire to curtail Fpecnlatlve en
gagements. Ort Wednesday , In tlio. faro of
heavy buying by London , the market showed
Increased weakness nnd liquidation louden-
cl ( 3 nnd continued this course on Thursday ,
breaking with some violence. . . The hardening
ot Interest under the withdrawals of money
for use In business at the Inlerlor and the
consequent reduction ot the cheap call and
tlmo loans , added lo the unsettled feeling
and itho calling In of loans was among the
chief disturbing factors. London wns again
n Jargo buyer at the break. Its total pur
chases In two days being estimated at over
lOO.OM sharns , though this was considered
to bo mainly speculative and likely lo result
In selling on the * rally whleh foreign opera-
torn believed would onsue. Some foreign In
terests were purchasers of the specialties ,
such activity being present In the Vnnder-
bllts , Gas and Hock Island and In the 1'u-
clllos and Kansas .1 Texas. The bear party
wns. However , very active in tnc progress
of the decline and was rewarded with the
forcing1 out of a large amount of long slocks
through the exhaustion of margins and the
catching of stop orders. Throughout the
week the traction stocks and sugar were
especially steady and ready to yield , Indi
cating that Iho prices , too , for them had
lit en put to an unduly high level and that
their rlso had attracted considerable weak
Humors of all kinds regarding alleged dis
coveries about the loss of the Maine and
Iho probable effect on our relation * with
Spain had free circulation and the. market
wan too demoralized on Thursday to take
notice of 'favorable ' circumstances such as
tlio drop In exchange , rates , and the accom
panying possibility that any future rise In
interest here would have the effect of at
tracting gold from the other side of the At
SOUFH OMAHA NEWS.
It has been definitely decided by the con
gregation of St. Martin's F.pleoral church
to remove the present homo of worship ,
which Is located at Twenty-third and II
streets , to the northeast corner of Twenty-
fourth and J strcels. At n meeting of the
congregation held on February S , Itcv. Irving
Johnson , the pastor , appointed a committee
consisting of W. S. King , L. C. Gibson , James
G. Martin , Hiram Hall and J. U. Watklns
to secure pledgee loward paying a portion of
the expense Involved by such a step. Tues
day evening tin ) committee repotted to a
meeting of the CDngregallon and llio support
pledged was in every way Batlsfactory , ex
ceeding by a considerable sum the amount
really needed. On Thursday evening the
committee visited Dlshop Wortlilnglon and
made a report nf the work performed and
It was then fully decided to make the change.
When removed and rebuilt the church will
bo known as the John S. Minor Memorial
church , as UlshopVorthlnslon has agreed
lo advance lo ll.o church the sum of ? 5,000
left in trust by John S. Minor for the found
ing or establishment of a memorial church.
With the money given by the bishop the two
lotg at the corner mentioned will bo pur
chased , whllo the other expenses Incidental
to the removal and refilling of Ihe church
will ibo berne by Ihcso who su'b-icribed ' to the
fund to bo raised for the purpose. W. S.
K\i\S \ and L. C. Gllison havo'been ' appointed
a committee to look over the abstract of the
land und to close the deal. When a showing
Is made to Hishop Worlhlnglon lhat the
title Is clear and everything Is ready ho will
turn over to the church the $5,000 agreed
upon. The two lois will cost $1,000 and It
Is estimated that the moving of the church ,
excavating , plastering , electric lights , water
and sewer will cost $1,000 more. Jt Is the
Intention now to move the rectory to a place
on this now property , but a. final decision
In this mailer has not yet been reached.
The grounds about the church will ha sodded
and placed In a presentable shape.
In addition to his gift of $5,000 to St. Mar
tin's church Hlnl'op Worthlngton has con
sented to give $ ! :00 : from the Clarlsa Cook
fund tn aid In building a mission church In
the Third ward lo bo known as St. Clem
ent's mission. A short time ago Hev. John
son appointed a committee to solicit funds
for this purpose and the committee- reports
liavlng met with much encouragement. Hev.
Johnson has fcr nome years 'been ' conducting
? . mlst'Ion In the Third ward , Ihe church
being Ihe only mio In Iho ward where Iho
serviced are comluclod In llio English lan
guage. This million is In a rented building
and the church desires to ccei. a house of
worship of Its own.
In reference to St. Marlln'a church 11 Is
understood that the removal will bo made

WOMEN DO NOT TELL THE WHOLE TJtUTJI.
Moflost Women Bvndo Cortrvin Questions Wlion Aekod by n Mnlo
Physlclnu , but Wrlto Freely to Mrs. Piukhaiii.
An eminent physician says Hint "Women are not truthful , they will Ho
to their physicians. " This statement should bo qualified ; women do tell the
truMi , but not the whole truth , to a nmlo physician , but this Is only in regard
to these painful and troublcsomo disorders [ > ucu <
liar to their sex.
There can be no inoro terrible ordeal to n delicate ,
seiisUlve , refined woman than to bo obliged to an
swer certain questions when those questions nro
naked , even by her family physician , This is espo
dally the case with unmarried women.
This is the reason why thousands and thousands of
women are now corresponding with Mrs. IMnkham.
To tills good woman they can and do give every
symptom , so that she really knows moro about
the true condition other patients through her
correspondence than the physician who per
sonally questions them. Perfect confidence and
candor are at once established between Mrs.
Pinkham and her patients.
Years ago women had no such recourse.
Nowadays u modest woman asks help of n
woman who understands women. If you suiter
from any form of trouble peculiar to women ,
write at oueo to Mrs. Pinkham , Lynn , Mass. ,
and blio will advise you free of charge.
And the fact that this great boon which Is
extended freely to women by Mrs. Pinkham , Is
appreciated , the thousands of letters which are
received by her prove. Many such grateful let
ters as the following nre constantly pouring in ;
" 1 was a sufferer from female weakness for
about u year and a half. 1 have tried doctors
ni.il patent medicines , but nothing helped me.
1 underwenttho horrors of local treatment , but
received no hcnellt. My ailment was pronounced
nlecration of the womb. J suffered from in
tense pains in the womb and ovaries , and the
backache was dreadful. 1 had leucorrhcca iu
its worst form. Finally I grew so weak 1 had
to keep my bed. The pains were so hard as to
almost cause spasms. When 1 could endure the
pain no longer 1 was given morphine. My
memory grew short' , and I gave up all hope of over getting well. Thus E
dragged along. At last I wrote to Mrs. Pinkham for advice. Her answer came
promptly. I read carefully her letter , and concluded to try Lyclin 10. Pinkham'a
Vegetable Compound. After taking two bottles 1 felt much bettor ; but after
using six bottles I was cured. My friends think my cure almost miraculous.
Her noble work is surely a , blessiug.to broken-down women. " UKACK B. Si-Ana-
