Judge J. W. Gregory of Garden City ia the chairman of the irrigation com mission, now in'the city. He is probably the best known and moat earnest of those who are working for national assistance, lie said today on the subject of irrigation: "The most feasible means of securing immediate results is that which is being so extensively employed at the present time in the vicinity of Garden City that is using pumps and windmills. The reason why this means is of so much value, ia that there is a great deal of land under which the water lies but a few feet below the surface and a pumping plant costs so little, that it is within the means of the individual, lie need not wait to organize a company, nor to effect any sort of combination. lie can have his own irrigation works ready in short order and be enjoying its benefits with out delay. It U. true that a man that is the average man can not undertake to irrigate a large tract in this way. The average area which one man should undertake to irrigate by pumping ought not exceed ten acres. But that area, properly handled, will provide a good living for the average family and a substantial margin for the savings ac count. We have families in the vicinity of Garden City making a good living off less than five acres irrigated by pump ing. "On a larger scale, and for future de velopment, ditches using water from the streams, supplemented by storage reser voirs and water obtained from the under flow, both by gravity "fountains" and by extensive pumping works, will irrigate a great deal of our land and make ft very' productive. In northwestern Kansas damming the numerous draws and thus saving the storm waters, will be quite a factor." "What do you think congress will do toward defraying the expenses of irriga tion experiments?" "Very little. So little and in a way so desultory and fragmentary that the bene fit will be minimized. Eastern farmers are bitterly opposed to having the gov ernment do anything at all in this line, and their opposition, coupled with the fact that much money appropriated in the interest, of irrigation has been wasted, will tend to prevent any fruitful action by congress until we of the arid and semi-arid rugions have at least onemem bfer of congress who will stand by irriga tion as Bland does by silver, for exam ple. '1 hen, and not until then, may we look for valuable aid from the govern ment." Wlit Great Bend Alan Says. L. Baldwin of Great Bend, ex-county superintendent of Barton county, is one of the state irrigation commissioners. He is very muci in earnest. He said to a Journal, reporter: "I think irrigation, can be mado a success in western Kan sas because there is an abundance of water beneath the surface that can be raided in various ways. Many methods are suggested. The pumping plan is much talked of by which the water would be pumped into reservoirs and high line canals, canals on the highest divides from which the supply could be drained on to the surrounding land. I consider the gravity method not suffici ently tried. It contemplates making a large excavation down to the underflow where there are streams like the Platte and Arkansas with a fall of so many feet to the mile, and then running ditches from this natural reservoir over the land between dikes and with a fall less than the natural slope of the land. "I don't know what congress will do. It should pass some of the bills pending before it to test, the supply of under ground waters and their distribution. Two bills are before congress. One in troduced by delegate Joseph of Isew Mexico, appropriating $500,000, and one by Senator White of California, for $2, 500,000. They both provide for experi ments and tests." NORTH TOPEKA.

City Clerk McFadden has been adver tiseing for ten days for bids for the con struction of a sewer in district No. 16, which is bounded by Jefferson, Quincy, Tenth and Thirteenth streets. These bids were to have been in by 5 o'clock last evening, and when that hour arriv ed only one bid had been submitted, and while it isn't supposed to be known un til opened whose bid it is, there is no doubt that it belongs to C. J. Rosen. . If Mayor Harrison had been, in the city there would have been a council meeting last night to give Mr. Rosen the contract, and thus get rid of the matter that has been a source of annoyance since last fall. The mayor is in Wichita on business and may be away until Friday. Under the circumstances a meeting will not be held until next Monday. The history of sewer It is one of blun ders, delay and litigation. It was omitted from the big sewer 14 for reasons that nobody can explain, except a few who do so in whispers. By an oversight the city engineer neglected to swear to the estimate of the cost of sewer 16, last fall, and after it was about half com pleted one of the property owners suc ceeded in securing an injunction to pre vent the city froui levying a tax to pay for the sewer on this technicality. Ihis put an effectual stop to the operations, and it became necessary to begin at the first again, and advertise for bids. The clerk did this but nobody bid on the work and the clerk has been again advertising, with the result that Mr. Rosen made a bid, probably at his old figure. New es timates were made, and this time duly sworn to. In the meantime Contractor Rosen who had done all the work on the sewer and had material on hand to complete it, had not been paid for hi3 work, and the city had no way of paying for it. Mr. Rosen was liable to get big damage from the city. By giving Mr. Rosen the contract at the old figure the matter is amicably settled, and this seems to be the best way out of the muddle. THE CITY DUMP. It is to Be Jt.de a Self Supporting 1 11- stitulion. City Attorney Tillotson is preparing an ordinance to regulate and control the use of the city dump, which has just been purchased from T. W. Durham for $850. The ordinance is largely an ex perimental measure as the city never owned an institution of this sort before, and the ordinance will have to be changed later as the needs of the case demand. It is proposed to make the dump barely self-supporting. The city is not intended to use the dump for money making purposes, but on the contrary make its charges as small as the expense of operating will allow. Col. Durham charged tn cents per barrel for the use of the dump. The city will charge five cents at first, and later make the charge greater or smaller as need be. Mr. Tillotson is preparing the ordi nance under the direction of the Ways and Means committee, to which it was referred by the city council. v ISSl'BANCE MEN PAT. Th.y Are Doing Their Share Towards Relieving the City's Poverty. Several of the councilmen are talking of amending Topeka's license ordinance. The ordinance applies at present chiefly to life and fire insurance agents and ped dlers. Mr. Fulton and others propose to include in it accident insurance and bil liard halls. The license on insurance agents is $25 a year for each, company represented. Some of the aeents have ten or more companies, and Frank Thomas recently paid License Collector Vanderpool $112.50 for his six-months license. This inuivalent to nine companies. Deven- dorf & Van Valkenburg have an equal number, also Nellis & McCune, Rodgers & Bailey and several others. This license Little AKTD 9 KANSAS AVENUE. ay si US.
