Power to Be Used for Irrigation Pumps. RIVER MOT SUPPLY NEEDS Kansas - Colorado Arkansas Eiver Valley Wants Water. tther Items of Interest la Ibo Traffie World. Word has been received at the gen eral offices of the Santa Fe in Topeka that the Commercial club and public spirited organizations generally in the Kansas-Colorado Arkansas river val ley west of Dodge City will meet in the near future to lay plans to induce the Santa Fe railroad to aid in the largest irrigation project yet devised in the United States. The plan was conceived by C. C. Isley, big lumberman and president of the Cimarron, Kansas, Commercial club. The Santa Fe will be asked to electrify its system from Dodge City west, the main object being to pro vide cheap power for the establish ment of pumping irrigation plants on every farm in the Kansas-Colorado Arkansas valley. After nearly a quarter of a century of effort irrigation boosters in the two states are agreed that the surface flow of the river will not furnish enough water to meet the valley s demands. Pumping irrigation has developed in the past few years as an ideal sub stitute. So far as is known not a single pumping plant that has been installed in the valley has proven a fcii.K-o Tr is known oositively that there is a vast underground lake throughout the semi-arid sections of both states extending from ten to fif teen miles on either side of the river bed. In the bottom lands the water i 1 . . 4-i.j,. , . n .1 nf f 1 nn- is ron-pheri at 1 1 t 1 , i L mia u ii'.' i - from 7 to 15 feet below the surface. As the surface of the land rises to the up-lands on either side the depth in creases but in no case has it so far been reached at a depth so great as to make pumping irrigation unprofitable. Most of the pumps now in operation are run by gasoline engines but the cost of installation and operation is greater than many farmers can afford and a cheaper power is needed. Should the Santa Fe electrify its sys tem and furnish power at a reason able rate thousands of acres in both states would be put under water at once. The commercial bodies of the valley feel that as gasoline power has proven a success a cheaper power would make a x-eritable garden of thousands of acres now subjected to dry farming methods. All public spirited organiza tions in the valley west of Dodge City have been invited by the Cimarron club to meet in conference to lay plans for inducing the Santa Fe to join in the move. The clubs are rapidly ac cepting the Invitation and so far no refusal has been reported. Monied and influential men in all parts of the valley are enthused with the Idea and a vigorous campaign will doubtless re sult. PLAN'S SANTA FE SHORT LINE. Terminals at Slaton. Tex, Before Gulf Line Connection. Slaton. Tex., March 24. In addi tion to the extensive division terminal facilities that have already been estab lished here by the Santa Fe at a cost of more than $300,000, that road is preparing to make enlargements and improvements in order to be prepared to properly care for the heavy traffic which is expected to result from the opening of the new cutoff line that will connect its present transcon tinental division with the Gulf system.

HOPPER CARS FOR GRAIN. Grand Trunk Solves One Problem of Prompt Grain Movement. St. Louis, March 24. Vice President R. S. Logan of the Grand Trunk rail road, who left here last evening over the Wabash en his return to Montreal, says thit grain movements, both in the United States and Canada, will be expedited by the instantaneous un loading made possible by hopper cars, which are coming into general use on the Grand Trunk system. This is a result of service tests extending over a year which provide that the pre vious trouble of hopper cars has been solved. The enormous advantage of hopper cars long has been seen, but the trick was to get a car which ! would not leak grain along a thousand miles of right of way. That problem ; seems to have been overcome. The Grand Trunk has found that I hopper cars which can carry coal in : one direction and grain in the other and dump either load in a few sec onds, have proved satisfactory. This announcement indicates that within a few years a great amount of time now lost in unloading with scoops will be lopped off the idle time of the cars. The car has a perfectly level and light bottom, and is in every way the same as an ordinary box car except that it dumps grain or coal within a few sec onds of time. In carrying capacity the car has 1,833, as compared to 1,100 bushels of the standard car; its load in tons is 55, as compared with 3 3 of the standard: carrying capacity in tons to one ton of tare weight, 2.29, as compared with 1.78 of the standard. USE "HOME TALENT" ENGINEERS. Northern Pacific Will Build Level Route, Tacomo to Portland. Chicago, March 24. The largest piece of construction work undertaken by the Northern Pacific railroad since completing its line to the coast is un der way on Point Defiance, near To coma, Wash., according to informa tion received at the office of President Elliott this morning. It consists of a double track around the edge of Point Defiance forty miles long, making a level route from Tacoma to Portland, Oregon. The necessity of constructing sea walls along various stretches will bring the cost up to $4,000,000. Be sides guarding against damage from waves, the road is boring a tunnel ap proximately one mile long. The new line probably will be com pleted by the end of 1914. Every mile will be constructed by the en gineers of the road. Railroad Man Takes Bride. Santa Fe, Kan., March 24. J. E.

State Orgaization Will Hold Sessions In Ctianute. - Chanute, Kan., March 24. Prepa rations are being made for the state meeting of the Daughters of the American Revolution in this city next Wednesday. One of the subjects to be discussed is the distribution of literature among the schools of Kan sas in regard to the desecration of the flag. This work is in charge of Mrs. Effie Van Tuil. Congress recently passed a bill on this subject. It prohibits placing of any word, figure, picture design or advertisement of any nature upon the flag of the United States; it provides a fine of 1500 or imprisonment for such desecration. The Saw also pro vides a penalty for mutilation of the American flag. HARD ROAD AHEAD OF HIM. G. F. Williams, of Bloom, Accused of Many Depredations. Bloom, Kan.. March 24. Requisition papers have been sent to Governor Hodges for G. F. Williams, check ar tist who swindled a number of mer chants here last fall. Williams worked near here as a harvest hand and wheat hauler. The checks were all for less than $20, the amount required to put them in the felony class, but the vic tims are many and have decided to pro secute. Williams had been traced from place to place for several months and was arrested recently at Burlington, Colo. When Sheriff C. E. Argabright arrived there he refused to return. Deputy Sheriff Woolwine was here and ob tained the signatures of the check ar tist's victims to statements to be sent to the governor. Though Williams can not be convicted of felony the officers plan a continuous string of misde meanor prosecutions against him that will keep him in jail for years. ONE YEAR WATER LEASE. Special Dispensation to Promote Sugar Boet Industry. Dodge City, Kan., March 24. The effort being made here by the United States Sugar and Land company, own er of the seven big beet sugar factories in the Kansas-Colorado Arkansas val ley, to induce farmers to raise sugar beets this year has brought forth a novel water right offer from J. W. Gilbert, manager of the old Soule irri gation ditch. Mr. Gilbert is as deter mined to get sugar beets introduced here as is the sugar company, and has prepared one-year water right leases so farmers may try the beet crop without purchasing permanent water rights. It is an entirely new depar ture in irrigation history in this sec tion. O. V. BONDS KIND READY SALE. Investors Recognize Value of Putting Money in Annuity Bonds. Ottawa, Kan., March 2 4.

TOPEKA WINS GAME. Baseball Contest Played in High Wind at Denison. Denison, Tex., March 24. The Topeka team of the Western league defeated Den ison of the Texas-Oklahoma league here yesterday by the score of 8 to 4. The weather was cold and a high wind was blowing across the field. The only features of the game was a home run by Hornsby and a two-base bit by Forsythe with the basses filled. Both teams used three pitchers, but none of them pitched hard. The ground had been sprinkled to wet the dust and this caused the infield to be slow. All of the men worked under difficulties. The Topeka team devoted today to reg ular practice and will not play any kind of a game, but they will meet Denison in another game Wednesday. The score: R.

Dale Gear is the most optimistic person noticed recently. He is in charge of the Kaws at Denison and is wearing a smile as large as a south ern ho-cake. In a letter to the home folks. Gear says there are 20 players in camp and not a sore arm in the bunch nor one with a sour disposi tion. The fans are familiar with a num ber of the leaders of the team and Gear contends that the others he has secured whom he thought he could de pend upon for their best service, are coming up to the scratch. Fullerton is looking ' exceptionally good. It is really too early to tell any thing about the hilltop flingers, and Gear admits it, but he believes that the fans can expect some' real good pitch ing every day of the season. "Pep" Hornsby was a dismal failure last year, but has reported and Is in good condition, and Gear believes that he win mrmnt Mm nrform ances of 1910 and 1911. Gear says he looks like real pitcher. , Dulin is another ena of the surprises of the season. He weighs 25 pounds less than last year and Is fast on his feet. It is believed that he will make good at the third station and be fast enough to set a pace for the circuit. Cochreham, Cochran and Reynolds should be able to pitch a good game this season and win their games regu larly. Gear says that if the team comes up to his expectation, that the fans can look at the standing during the entire season, with considerable pleasure. Forsythe. McLarry, Rapps and OHom are hitting the ball hard and it i believed that they will cause many pitchers to choke up and quit before the season is well started. In addition to the death list of the Denver team, caused by the sale or drafting of four of the best men on the team, or even on the circuit, the management has four holdouts. Among them are Dick Kinsella, Cliff Healy, Frover, Gilmore and Alex Remnaes. All are pitchers. With the loss of these players the pitching staff will be "all shot to pieces." Kinsella was the best curve ball pitcher on the circuit. Cliff Healy turned practically every team on the circuit on its head and Gilmore has an equally good record. Remnaes is a young man who was bought from De troit. All are stubborn and McGill baa just about given up the idea of in ducing any of them to sign. Bill Dwyer, who has played with Lincoln and Des Moines, is recovering after having been in the hospital prac tically all winter. No one knows his intentions for the coming season but it is believed that he will Join some Western League club, and there are some who could use him. Charles Webb Muhpry has- been of fered $35,000 and two first-class play ers in exchange for Roger Bresnahan by a National League club. Notwith standing that this is the largest price ever offered for a baseball player, Mur phy refused to consider it. Jesse Tannehill, formerly one of the .star pitchers of the National League, will manage a team in the Federal League at Covington, Ky this season. Big Jim Scott, of the AThite Sox. has solved the "come back" .proposition He went to the lower part of Califor nia several weeks ago to unload his burden of rheumatism and appears to have succeeded. Big Jim was not in condition last year and realized that he must deliver the goods this season or accept a berth with the minors. The White Sox are working out with the Los Angeles. Pacific coast, team and the big Kansan has won Ave games and lost none. Borton is making a good showing with the White Sox and is believed to have a cinch on staying with the team all season. ACT QUICKLY Aclmj Has Been Dangerous in Topeka. Do the right thing at the right time. Act quickly in time of danger. In time of kidney danger Doao'i Kidney Pills are most effective. Plenty of evidence of their worth. Mrs. Julius Kops. Topeka, Kansas, says: "Up to three years ago I had been troubled with kidney complaint for all of ten years. The constant pains and aching in the small of my back were almost unbearable. I found It difficult to straighten up in the morning and many days I could not be on my feet at atl. When I caught cold or overexerted myself, my condi tion would grow worse and my suffer ing more intense. I couldn't rest at night and in the day large spots would appear before my eyes until I could not see and dizzy spells would over come roe. Some three years ago I began using Doan's Kidney Pills and this remedy improved my condition from the very first. Continued use cured me, completely and permanent ly. I took in all the contents of four boxes and that was sufficient to rid m- of every symptom of kidney trouble. Doan's Kidney Pills certainly have my endorsement." For sale by all dealers.
