Middletonasked if it was the desire of^the convention that all articles coming^from the committee on corrrection and re^vision should be again printed. After^some discussion the matter was postponed
Joy'smotion to take a recess until 2^o'clock prevailed.
Theconvention resumed at '^ p. m. Ken^^nedy was granted leave of absence until^Saturday, and Kamadell was excused for^the day.
Carpenter,chairman of the special com^^mittee on memorial No. 3, submitted the^following report:
lhe select committeee to whom was re^^ferred memorial No. 2, hereto annexed, re^specllully reports that it has considered^the same and recommends that said mem^orlal be amended so as to read as follows^This convention respectfully calls the at^tention of the secretary of the treasury to^the fact that a ruling ef the treasury de^partment under which imported ore, more^valuable on account of the silver than lhe^lead which it contains is admitted free of^duly, operates very injuriously to the min^ing interests of Montana through the small^importation duty free of lead in the ore ef^the value of several millions of dollars to^compete with the American product.
Thisconvention respectfully suggests^that it was not intended by congress to^permit the importation of an immense^quantity ot lead free of duty, and that said^ru:iiiK. even it complying with the letter^rt^ es not express the true spirit of the an^ot congress imposing a duty upon lead ore^and this convention respectfully ask thai^said ruling, if the principles ot legal con^struction will permit, be so modified as to^follow the true spirit of the law, and re^quire a duty ot ll-t cents per pound to be^patd upon all imported ore containing such^a percentage of lead as would, it admitted^tree ot duty, tend materially to interfere^with the mining interests of our country.^' And that so amended it be adopted by^this convention.
Warrenmoved to accept the report and^;n mo rial. Carried. Carpenter moved that^the president of the convention be in^structed to transmit a certified copy of the^memorial to the secretary of the treasury,^and it was so ordered.
Kotwitt,chairman of the suffrage com^^mittee, reported favorably upon Carpen^ter's proposition giving women who are^taxpayers and otherwise qualtiied the^right to vote. The ayes and noes were^ailed, resulting: Ayes 34, noes 26, ab
Katonarose to a point of order that the^report of a standing committee should be^printed, but the point was declared not^well taken, as it came too late.
ItIs Settled.^On motion of Callaway the vote by which^the proposition on suffrage was adopted was^reconsidered and the vote laid upon the^table.
Middleton,chairman ot the committee on^engrossing, reported propositions Nos. 1H,^;^ and *i correctly engrossed.
Thecommittee on revision and correc^^tion reported that it would take at It ast ten^days to pnnt the constitution.
Callawayasked unanimous consent to^call attention to proposition No. IS, bounda^^ries.^ claiming that the words ^and juris^^diction^ were In conflict with the enaoiing^act and should be stricken out. The^amendment carried and the proposition^was then adopted as amended. The com^^mittee on revision was authorized to strike^out the words in the enrolled copy.
Owingto the absence of any provision^having been placed in the schedule rela^^tive to district judges and clerks of district^courts J. K. Toole offered an amendment^and on motion of Courtney the convention^went into committee of the whole for the^,-onsideration of the amendment^with proposition aio. 88, article^on schedule. Chessman in the^chair. As the committee on schedule^,'ould not agree upon needed amendments,^on motion of Knowles the committee rose,^reported progress and asked leave to sit^again. The convention resumed, and on^motion of Hickman a recess was taken^until 4 o'clock.
Onreassembling J. K. Toole said he had^been in consultation with members of the^schedule committee, and they were of the^opinion that several things in the schedule^should be in the ordinances, and he asked^unanimous consent that the vote by which^the proposition on ordinances was adopted^be reconsidered for the express pur^pose ot addicg thereto, but not for^iM purpose of changing anything^of importance therein. He moved that a^-pecial committee be appointed to har^^monize the two ordinances. Judge^Knowles read the report of the schedule^committee, which was in brief that the^labors of the committee had been finished,^and recommended that the additional sec^^tions contemplated by bis committee be in^^corporated in the ordinances.

Engineer Miller Reports on Four^Available Sources for Securing^a Water Supply.
The Approximate Cost of Bringing^In And Maintaining Each^of Them.
He btronffly Furor* Lump (aulcb. Bui^Thinks the Water Kindt. Will^Prove a s^aag.
Atthe meeting of the city council held^Tuesday evening, the report of Q. N.^Miller, city engineer, was submitted.^This report was made in pursuance of a^resolution adopted by the council approved^April 34, 18KV, with a view to ascertaining^the feasibility and probable cost of estab^^lishing a water system for the city of Hel^^ena for general use, to be constructed and^owned by the city, for which work the en^^gineer was to receive 5300 ascompensation.^The report is a very complete and long^one. It begins thus: ^^The ci,y of Hel^^ena is located on the bench land between^the Ten Mile and Prickly I'ear valleys^and is divided by Last Chance gulch,^into two sections, known as the east and^west sides.
Thedifference in elevation of the north^and south portions of the city is about 400^feel, Owing to* the great elevation of 7u0^feet above the Missouri river and the close^proximity to the main range of the Kocky^mountains, the problem ot obtaining a^suitable water supply, becomes a very dif-^ficuly and expensive one.
Tensources of supply were examined.^These were: The Missouri river: Little^Blacktoot river, south of Elliston: Ten^Mile creek: Lump Gulch reservoir system:^Dug creek, near Mullan tunnel: Trout^creek, on east side Missouri river: .Silver^lake and Marsh creek: McClellan (iulch:^Crow creek, near Bald mountain: Colorado^(iulch and other small streams. Of the^several sources but tour were considered^as adequate to furnish a st tticiency of^water. These were the Missouri river, the^Little Black foot river south of KUiston,^Ten Mile creek and the Lump ^,ulch reser^^voir system.
tubMl-sot Kl kivkk.
TheMissouri river scheme, which has^been uppermost in the public mind, was^first examined. Mr. Miller does not con^^sider this a feasible source, basing the cal^^culation from a pumping standpoint. Ue^says the supply of water to be derived^from the Missouri river is abundant, and at^the present time of an excellent quality.^There is. however, a probability ot future^contamination by the construction of large^smelting work and manufactories with the^accompanying cities and towns along the^Missouri and Jefferson rivers, above the^soutce of supply. In connection with the^canal project which has been suggested, he^thinks the water would be unfit for use^without filtration, and the cost of construc^^tion is uncertain, while the feasibility can^only be ascertained by surveys. He be^^lieves such a scheme, by reason of the^amount of arid land that could be re^^claimed, would be a better investment for^private capital.
Ofthe pumping plan be says :
Apumping plant drawing a supply^from the river near Mubh's Kerry could be^constructed for a less outlay than the canal^and pumping works combined, and as in^either case a pumping lift of several hun^^dred feet would be required, 1 have only^made an estimate tor the pumping system^directly from the river.
^Theelevation ot the Missouri river at^fjtubb's Ferry is about 3 *5o feet above sea^level, or 675 feet below tfie Woolston reser^^voir.^,
Theelevation would necessitate two^pumping stations, each having a lift of 430^teet-
tbemissouri kstihatk.
^The following estimate for a supply of^5,000,000 gallons per diem would be suffi^^cient tor a city of 50.000 people and is all^that would be required tor several years :^IS miles of 3n inch cast lrc n pipe at $27,000

Theannual cost of maintaining the sys^^tem with two pumping stations he esti^^mates at S130.3U5. Continuing he says: ^It^will be seen from the above figures that^the annual expenditure by the city to build^and operate the above system of works^would be as follows:
MMcharted on Invested capital$ ^2,tK^:i
Cosiof punit,lDK and maintenance of

Theprobable revenue to be derived by^the city at fair rates to consumers would be^about $100,000, leaving S^1.2HK to be paid^for by the city for fire and other purposes.
Owingto the cost of pumping, an in^^crease in consumption woula email a cor^^responding increase in the cost of supply^and the maintaining of such a system ot^works would be a burden upon the city.
Inview of theso facts be does not con-^steer the Missouri river a feasible source.
thelittle iii.a' KFOOT.
Ofthis source the engineer sajs: The^Little Blackfoot rises on the west slope of^the main range of the Kocky mountains,^about thirty miles southwest of the city of^Helena, and flows northerly to Elliston^and thence weaterly. The country around^the headwaters is heavily timbered, acd^the stream seems to be affected less by^drought than other mountain streams in^th s section.
Krominformation learned he says a sup^^ply of 10,000,000 gallons could be depended^upon.
Thispoint would be about twenty-three^miles from the city of Helena, and it would^be necessary to tunnel through the main^range of the Kocky mountains just south^of the McDonald or French Woman's pass^to bring the water by gravity to the east^side of the divide.
Theexpense of a tunnel would be the^same for a small as for a large supply.
Thefollowing estimate for 5.000,000 gal^^lons per diem will show the approximate^cost as follows:^Dam and lnt^ke at the Little Blackfoot. f 90,i 00^Nine miles of i4-lnch cast 1-on pipe from^the Little Blackfoot to tunnel, at f ;.\

Thisamount would easily be paid by a^dom^ stic consumption of 5,000,000 gallons^per diem. To construct these works with^a capacity of 10.000.000 per day would in^^volve an additional coat of about $350.quo.^and it would require two years' time to^construct this gravity system, and in con^^clusion doubts the advisability of ent ring^into this gigantic work at the present time.
Insumming up the feasibility of this^gravity source the engineer states that an^important objection to it is the fact that^Kimlnl, the bead of the source, is a mining^camp with every reason to believe that in^the near future its mining operations will^be largely increased, and at ail events filter^beds would be required. A reservoir^would have to be established, and the most^available site Is in Walker creek, which^flows Into Tea Mile. Other points of this^source which he submits are: ^In order to^supply the city by gravity it would be^necessary to construct a dam at some point^near the mouth of the upper canon and^pipe the water to the distributing reser-^vo rs in the city.
Whilethe quantity of water to be de^^rived from this method is sufficient for a^city of 100,000 inhabitants, the quality Is^not first claas
Theapproximate estimate of a gravity^supply from Ten Mile of 4.000,000 be eati^mates as follows:

demonstratedby surveys before the city^undertakes the construction of works on^Ten Mile creek.
THKLIMP Gl'Ll'B source.
ofthis source Engineer Miller comments^very favorably, and considers it the most^available and feasible one yet mentioned,^promising as it does an adequate supply for^lOO.ooo inhabitants. He dwells at some^length on the project and has evidently^given it careful examination. The proba^^ble cost of acquiring the numerous water^rights tributary to this source he has not^attempted to ascertain, but be adds that^should unreasonable compensation be ex^^acted the city could obtain them by con^^demnation.
Lumpgulch rises near Bed mountain^and flows easterly into Prickly Pear creek.^The elevation is 4,600 feet above sea level.^The proposition is to construct a dam^across Lump gulch at the junction of these^two forks and to convey the water into the^city by gravity through a pipe line.
Thereservoir created by the construction^of this dam would be small and the holding^capacity would not exceed 50 000,000 gal^^lons, but it would be sufficient to insure a^steady flow ot water. The drainage area^of Lump gulch above this dam-site is about^twenty-five square miles. Most of this^area receives a large snowfall during^the winter season, and the snow usu^^ally remains on the ground, around^Bed mountain, until the last of^June. The creek discharges during three^months of the year from 20.000.000 to 90,-^00i).000 gallons per diem.
Atthe lowest stage in the fall the dis^^cbarge is reduced to about 2,000.000 gal^^lons. Lump gulch was discharging July^7,2,500.000gallons in tweuty four hours and^with proper reservoirs, its supply could be^maintained at 4.000,000 gallons during any^dry season. But the-e is a large additional^drainage area that can be made tributary^to this system and a better storage reser^^voir than any of those mentioned. On the^the headwaters of Beaver creek, lying^northeast of Bed mountain, is the reservoir^site of the old Beaver creek dam which^broke seven years ago. This has an ap^proximate area of 120 acres. By the con^struction of a dam on the west side fifty^feet high and a dy ke of about one-half the^height on the north side, a reservoir could^be created with a storaue capacity of about^1,000 OOO.OUO gallons, which could easily be^made tributary to Buffalo creek. In order^to fill this reservoir it would be necessary^to construct a flume around the north^side of Bed mountain to upper Ten^Mile creek above Bimim. By^this means an additional supply of^4,000,000 gallons per diem for nine months^could be obtained, without drawing any-^considerable amount from Ten Mile creek^during the low water season, and a further^supply of 2,000,000 could be drawn from^upper Ten Mile creek during the entire^season, if needed. This would add nearly^fifteen square miles of water shed to that^of Lump gulch.
Thechief obstacle to be encountered is^the private ownership of water rights and^ot the lands required for reservoir sites. It^would not be policy to enter Into this or^any other project without first acquiring^such rights. It would aiso be necessary to^make surveys and to determine the actual^storage capacity to be obtained, as the fig^^ures given are approximate only.
Theapproximate estimate for this reser^voir system the figures are as follows:^Masonry dam 40 f'et htiib, at the forks of
