Power to Be Used for Irrigation
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

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
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
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.

Plans have been adopted for a new
passenger station and general office
building. The operating department
of the Santa Fe'a West Texas line will
be located here. It is at Slaton that
this cutoff road connects with he
branch line that runs south to La-

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.
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,
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.
Stewart and Miss Margaret Lahey
Him were married at the home of the
bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs.. John
Lahey Hirn. Mr. Stewart is assistant
chief engineer of the D. C. & C. V., the
Santa Fe's new Colmor cutoff, and

of the new road.
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.
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.
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
Investors Recognize Value of Putting
Money in Annuity Bonds.
Ottawa, Kan., March 2 4. The new
plan for raising the endowment fund
of Ottawa University by issuing annu
ity bonds is beginning to bring results
at the Baptist school. During the past
week about $3,000 worth of bonds
have been purchased and others are
considering the investment. The at
tractive feature of the bonds is that
the university asumes all responsibil
ity connected with the management
of the investment, thus relieving the
owner of all financial care and worry.
Slieep Killed in Storm.
Santa Fe. Kan.. March 24. Reports
just received here indicate the sheep
ranchers of northwest Haskell county
suffered considerable loss during the
recent storms, the sheep huddling to
gether and crushing and smothering
each other.
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:

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
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.
