THEDAILY INDEPENDENT: HELENA. FRIDAY .MORNING. MAY 10 188!^.
HeThinks There is Sufficient Water^,f Handled Rightly to Water^All Ranches.
brutOut by the I iitt^-^I -late- Mr. T.r^Hill Krporl uu Iti^- Out-stlon of^^u.raa;r Rs-as-rsol r^.
S.Tarr. a hydraulic engineer, and^member of tne MM MM geological^turkey of the interior depart inent, has be^-n^in this city since the latu-r part of April.^He was sent out by a senate commission to^prepare a preliminary re|^ort on the condi^^tion of IrriKation in Montana. Mr. Tarr^has been connected with the geological^survey for the past two years, and has been^cone 'ted with the irrigation depart^^ment. ^ lew feature adopted by the hfty-^first congress last fall, lie made several^reports on the condition of the country in^s. w Mexico. Co: gress has appropriated^JSJO.i^^1 for the purpose of solving the irri^^gation and storage problem of the I'nited^gMK The last appropriation made was^^250.000, but this Is not available until July^1-l Mr. Tarr waj met by an Imikpkmj-^est r^-port^T at the Cosmopolitan hotel^vt-stt-rday, and the gentleman consented to^give a few points on the nature arid pro^^gress Ox bis work, iu which all Montana is
^Whatis the nature of your work ^^ waa^asked.
Therewereseversl branch es ot the work^but the work 1 am detailed to do here Is to^hod out hrst the approximate amount of^land under irrigation in Montana; the way^in ^ l.i.-li water is conducted to the noil; the^approximate amount of water in the nat^^ural channels: the per cent appropriated to^that available, and the meilnxls, rules, reg^^ulations and laws governing the adruini*^tratwn of water. The method of trie work^so far has been carried on by correspond^^ence. I have obtained the names of many^farmers in different sections to whom 1^have au'lressed a list of ij nest ions, which^have in some instan, ^^^ met wan prompt^replies, but not all. The questions asked^cover the ground of my instructions from^the leparuiient.-'
^Whathas been the general result
'1he great point 1 have|found so far is that^tie-re ii an abundance ot water, practically^the si:| | iy is unlimited. There is also^abunoant tor future use on an extended^scale if properly handled. The amount of^land whh'h can be irrigat'd is very gieat,^hut it will have to be carried in by large^canals and by storage.^ .
V\I,st have )ou learned about the Milk^river country^
^1have heard nothing so far from that^section. 1 shall know about the country-^later I'ti. as 1 intend verifying the r^ ports^by personal observation of each section.^1'ractically no irrigation has In-en at^^tempted iu Montana outside of the imme^^diate valley lands. With the exception ot^a few canals in course of construction in^the sun river country and the ^^al latin val^ley canal no effott has been made to run^high line ditches. Wherever the country is^le ,^. or not t si much broken the high lands^are the best tor agricultural purposes. At^least this has been the result in all arid^Ian Is thai I have studied,
Montanais behind other territories in^the matter of irngration, but this can be^accounted for owing to the tact that irri^^gation in this territory is in its infancy.^There is no place to go to gather statistics^on the subject; the entire work is left to^the geological department Most terri^^tories and all states have either a state en^^gineer or other officer or an immigration^bi reau, wtiosi duty it is to collect statistics^oi. the water supply and the amount of^land under cultivation, with a detailed^description of their domain. by this^means the work which is now^being uml.rtak.n is greatly^facilitated, and it would tea lieneficial un^dertaking if at an early day Montana^should establish a bureau covering this^matter. In Colorado, at the state engin^^eer's office, is kept account ot all the water^that flows in every important stream every^day ot every month ot each year. Ari^^zona, Dakota, Wyoming, I'lali and Idaho^each pay attention to irrigation and agri^^culture. Your laws a.so are very incom^plete on irrigation matters and are not for^^mulated with any foresight to the future,^wl. ch will l^e a matter of much contention^ItUielaws governing the system arv. i^^^^^remedied.
Whatdo you think of artesian wells as^a system of obtaining water tor irriga^^tion ^'
Artesianwells are not nect ssary in^Montana. There is an abundance ot water,^as I previously stated, for all agricultural^purposes that may ever be undertaken in^the territory. You can never Mi *vhei^-^water is unless \on bore for it and this is^an expensive undertaking, and Mini there^is no possibility ot securing water hM auy^other source should not be attempted!
Whenwill you complete your work^here T'
Thispreliminary report will In- hriideo^in on the hrst of July. It is for the bet .^of the senatorial commissien and what they^will do with it will be determined by hM^legislation. This work is not confined to^Montana. A reiurt irom every terntorj^is being prepared. I ne senate committee^will then base upon these reports legisls-^tion covering the needs ot the territories '
Tha-Vuderbilt Party VUlt Butte. Ketorn^and ^.o to Great Falla.^The millionaire excursions, whose ar^^rival in Helena was announced exclusively^in the lnuK.pw.yom yesterday morning,^attracted many people to the Northern Pa^^cific depot. The train reached here short^^ly before ^ o clock. Dr. Webb, a Vander-^bilt by marriage, was standing on the plat^^form viewing the sight,. He waa attired^in a tweed suit, and chatted pleasantly^about his trip. He said the party was in^the best of health, and were having a most^pleasant time and were most hospitably en^^tertained by the good people of the west-^The train contained four ears, the outward^appearance of which, while attractive, waa^no indication of the luxunouaness of the in^^terior. The car that first catches the eye^is the Elamere, though it is last on the^train. This car cost ^30.000, and is said to^l^e the most perfec ly fitted and elegantly^finished rail way vehicle in the world. It^contains several large sleeping rooms,^baths, etc., and the rear compartment is^what is called an ^'observation^ room. The^door is at one side of the end instead of in^tbe middle, and the remainder of the end is^a huge plate-glaas window, giving an un^obstructed view. Similar windows on the^sides give to the occupants as clear a view^of th^ landscape as could be bad on an^open car. The Elamere is furnished with^every known contrivance for mitigating^the discomforts of railroad traveling, and^is handsomely upholstered and finished.^The first car is a remodeled rm:^t car.^The forward end has been arranged for a^bavrgage room, and contains berths for some^ot the servants. A bathroom, supplied with^hot and cold water, has been substituted for^the buffet. Tbe main compartment is used^as a music room, library and general^amusement hall for tbe party, and contains^a tine piano, bookcase, writing desk, etc.^At one end of tbe room is a gun rack, filled^with Winchester rifles and shotguns. When^traveling at night the conductor and guide^remain in this room, with guns within easy^rearb, prepared to make things interesting
forany road agents who might stop the
train.At the hrst sign ot trouble the occu^^pants of this car c n alarm everybody else^on the train by touching electric buttons,^aid there are some crack marksmen in the^party. Dr. Webb is said to be an expert^r:tlc shot, as is also his brother, Frank^Webb. The conductor is Colonel Oscar^Eistmnnd, a veteran of the civil war who^has an interesting hist ry. A guide accom^^panies the party. His name is Krazier. He^lias been a frontiersman and knows the^country from Panama to Alaska. Tbe^train can at a moment's notice turn out an^armed force of sixteen men.
Thesecond car la a Wagner coach^specially remodelled for the trip. The^kitchen occupies two-thirds of the car. It^requires two cooks and six colored waiters^to attend. The rest of the car is taken up^with a long dining table. All the station^^ery seats have been removed.
Thethird car, the Mariquita, is one of^Dr. Webb's private cars. It is divided^into several compartments, the largest of^w hich is a family sitting room, fitted with^easy chairs, sofa and tables. Another
ri is reserved as a playhouse for the
children.Dr. Webb's iarge sleeping room,^bath and toilet rooms take up the remainder^of this car.
Aphysician also accompanies the travel^^ers.
Tbetrain did not remain here over half^an hour. It was switched onto the Mon^^tana Central, where a run was made to the^^greatest mining camp on earth.^ General^Manager P. P. Shelby accompanied them^to Unite. They visited some of smelters^and mills and other attractions of the great^silver-copper camp. They spent about^t.nir hours in Butte and reached here at^7:03 p. m. and left for tireat Falls at 7:17.^1 he next stop will be at St. Paul. 1mm^where they will run over the Canadian Pa^^cific to Vancouver, from where they will^take a ten day's voyage to Sitka. Upon^their return, via tbe Canada road.the) will^go to Mielburne, Vermont, where Dr.^Webb and his family will rest during the^summer, after the greatest railway excur^^sion on record.
Ths Vrond Performance ot the Opera a
MMImprovement ^Mer the f irst.^A second large audience witnessed the^Encore club's version of ^Erminie^ last^evening. The performance showed a^marked improvement over that of the pre^^vious evening, soloists and choruses ap^^pearing to enter more into the spirit of the^occasion. Tbe orchestra also was handled^better, and taken a,t..get:.er the evening's^entertainment was creditable to the club.^With the two public representations of the^opera and the self-possession the singers^have acquired thereby. Butte is sure to be^favored with a really enjoyable perform^^ance next Saturday night.
Inthe notice of Wednesday night s opera^mention should have been made of the ex^^cellent acting and make-up of Miss .Sadler,^as trie Princess, who constituted a notable^figure in the second and third acts.
Thecostuming of the opera was elegant^throughout, and reflected great credit upon^til- taste ot the ladies and gentlemen of tbe^club, who have been at mu^h personal in^^convenience and not a little expense to put^the opera on the stage. The proceeds of^the week's work will take the club out of^debt and leave a surplus which can be ap^^plied toward furnishing its new hall, in^the El-ctric Light building, where, it is^probable, all future performances by the^club will be given, and, where, also, tbe^arrangements will be more convenient for^rehearsals and soirees.

Opinionof an Army Officer that It Must^t ome from the Missouri River.
tlen.K. W. Johnson, I'. S. A., St- Paul.^Minn., who was recently in Helena, no^^ticed the lack ot a water supply for the^city. The following l^uu wilt explain his^views upon the subject:
St.Pai l. Minn., May 7, isst*. ^[ Editor^Independent.]^A recenkwisit to your beau^tiful city enabled me to see your needs and^1 hope you will excuse an outsider for ex^^pressing Ins views in regard to a matter of^Vital importance to your people and to the^thousands who in years to come will make^Helena their home. 1 refer to your water^supply. 1 suppose it is a fact that you^h ivc an abundance of water for your pres^^ent population, but is it not fair to suppose^t i it within twenty years instead of Ik OOt)^^ou will have ten times that number^ If^Mich is the case, any one can^see that your supply will fall far^short of the wants of your people. Is it^i.ot evident that ultimtaely you will have^tin look to the Missouri river tor water F It^may be said that the cost will be too great.^Let me say that if you wait until yon have^a population of 180,000, tbe cost ot the^right-of-way and reservoir facilities will^c rtainly nut be less than ten times what^tlie same can* be secured for to-tiny, bo, if^tin- work is done now, tbe increase of your^population will assist in paying for these^i uprovements. Is it not better to begin^to-day while land is comparatively cheap^and secure an abundant supply of pure,^good water t It is hardly necessary for me^to say that 1 am in no way interested, but^having passed through a similar experi^^ence here I think 1 can safely advise your^people to move in this important ma'ter at^nee. Let the city take the matter in^hand and not leave it to a private corpora^tion.

Anothervillain who has victimized a^woman has been traced to Helena. His^name is John McCarty, an^ he is a book^agent for Appleton A Co. He is wanted by^his wife whom he married under the name^of Alston In Elgin, Illinois, two years ago.^Mrs. Alston, as she calls herself, but who^is in reality Mrs. McCarty, is now in San^Francisco: yesterday a letter came from^her addressed to tbe chief of police of Hel^^ena, and was turned over to Detective^Walters. The letter is quite lengthy. It^gives the woman's history, bow she became^acquainted with McCarty, when she mar^^ried him, and how she was led to intrust to^him a large sum of money, which alter^gaining possession of, he deserted her.
Mrs.McCarty says that about three years^ago she was keeping a millinery store in^Elgin, III , and Alston, as he then called^himself, was there canvassing for school^books. He remained there for some time^trying to have the schools adopt hl^ book*^and succeded in so doing. During bis stay^in Elgin Mrs. McCarty, who was then Miss^Allen, became acquainte-d with him, aud^he began to pay her attention. He suc^^ceeded in gaining her affections and wben^he left she was his promised bride. Alston^went from Illinois to Minnesota, where he^remained for very nearly a year, when be^returned to Elgin and made Miss Allen bis^wife. Tbey lived happily together tor a^year, Mr. Alston making frequent trips on^the road while she remained at home and^attended to her millinery business, which^brought her her in a great deal of money.
Ayear ago Alston induced his wife to^seli out and go with him to San Francisco.^She deposited her money^the sum is not^stated^in a San Francisco bank. Alston^was rarely at home, but in every way was^a dutiful husband, sending her money^while on the road. She says she wanted^for nothing.
LastApril Alston returned home from a^tour through Oregon and Washington ter^^ritory. He informed his wife that he had^a chance to invest in town lots in .Seattle,^and that a fortune could be made by s i do^in/. Mrs. Alston.having implicit confidence^in ner husband, drew her money from the^bank and gave it to him. He left home^next day, and his wife says she beard no^more from him until she learned that he^was in Helena living with another woman.
shetells how she came to know that her^husband's name is McCarty. It seems that^shortly after be left San Francisco, Mrs.^Alstein was visited by a young wi man^named McCarty, who produced indubitable^proofs that she was Alston's sister. She^says Miss McCarty, whose home is in Hart^^ford, Ct, has been searching for her^brother for four years. He robbed tier of^-4 imo and left, and she has been searching^for him ev* r since. She learned that he^had changed his name and tbe tracing be^^came easier. Mrs. Alston was astounded^when she learned of her husband s perfidy,^and called upon the chief of police of San^Francisco and told her story. The chief in^^vestigated and found Alston had left the
TheI'nion Men out In Helena For a Slight^Advance in Wage*.
Thejourneymen tailors of Helena are on a^strike for the adoption of a schedule of^prices which is a slight increase on cer^^tain kinds of coat making. Numerous in^^terviews were held yesterday between the^bosses and men and it is understood that^all firms with the exception of one are will^^ing to accede to the demand of the men.^The tailor's union is a strong organization^in Helena and the prices received for work^allow tbe men to make good wages. The^president of the union was questioned yes^^terday as to the cause of the strike, but he^was reticent and averse to giving informa^^tion. Enough was learned, however, to^warrant the statement that an increase ot^fifty cents is wanted on certain coat^work. No demand is made for higher^prices for pantaloons and vests.
Thecause of tbe strike as learned from^one of the strikers was that there is one^scab shop in the city and that they turn out^work cheaper than union shops can do, and^that in hopes of getting the men to join the^union they established a schedule ot prices^slightly In advance of tbe present schedule.^They presented tbe list to the bosses and^all acceded to the demand except one and^it is thought that be will come to time to^^day.
