Many States Have Profited by This Opportunity and Havc
Secured Valuable Results in Topographic Work and Othei
Commonwealths Are Planning to Take Similar Action.
Systematic examination of the ge
ology, waters and forests of the state
of Montana have been begun by the
United States Geological survey, and
are being extended under federal ap
propriation. The purpose of these in
vestigations is to promote knowledge
of the state, and aid the development
of its resources.
A topographic map is essential as
a basis for the representation of the
nature and resources of the state, and
one is. bcing prepared by surveys con
tinued from year to year. Such a
ma0p is almost essential to the develops
ment of the country. Montana has
thousands of acres of arid, or semi
'rid land, now hearing crops of sage
brush, that only need water to trans
form them into productive farms, but
In order to intelligently reclaim this
land, topographic maps must be made
to show its location, as well as where
the water may be secured to irri
gate it.
For the development of the min
ing interests of the states, it is es
sential to have good topographic
maps of the mountain regions for the
prospector to locate his prospect, to
show the distance of the same from
railroads, where power may be de
veloped for the treatment of the ore,
where water may be secured for the
mill, and as a base for geologic re
port on the district. These maps are
also of great use to the prospector
in securing the financial support nec
essary for the development or sale
of his prospect, as with such a map,
in Boston and New York, he can ex
plain the conditions as well there as
on the ground.
The water supply of Montana, both
for power and irrigation purposes, is
becoming more valuable every year
and in order to develop it to the best
advantage, maps of large areas should
be made, in order to determine the
fall of the streams, show where res
ervoirs may be constructed for stor
age, and to indicate points where
power may be developed and the dis
tance to the point of its utilization.
In this connection, for the develop
ment of power, as well as for irri
gation purposes, it is essential that
the streams be gauged in order that
the amount of water that can be de
pended upon may be known, and to
secure reliable data, it is necessary
that these gaugings be extended over
a series of years. This part of the
work is in charge of the water re
sources branch of the United Stater
Geological survey, and is being pushed
as rapidly as tho limited appropria
tions will permit.
In fact, today the first thing asked
for, before undertaking any enterprise,
is a topographic map-whether it be
railroad construction, irrigation, road
building, water supply, lumbering or
The areas selected for survey are
defined by lines of latitude and longi
tude, and. are called quadrangles,
which are named after the most prom
inent city or natural feature on the
same. (ln these quadrangles, or at
las sheets, all the roads, trails, rail
roads, cities, towns, postoffices
houses, county and state boundaries
and section and township lines, where
they exist, as well as all lettering, are
shown in black. The streams, lakes
rivers, and all water features arm
shown in blue; while the hill ant
mountain features, or elevations, arc
shown by means of contour lines ir
brown. The contour interval varies
with the scale of the map, and the
relief of the country, where they arm
close together the country is steep
where further apart, gently sloping
and where none exist, the surface ia
practically flat.
These maps are obtainable from the
United States Geologica Isurvey ir
Washington, D. C., at the nomina
price of 5 cents a capy, or $3 pea
hundred sheets.
As permanent monuments, coppe
bolts, brass or aluminum tablets
marking the exact geodetic position
of primary triangulation points, wil
be left at conspicious points through
out the state, where surveys are is
progress. These monuments serve a
datum points for all other govern
ment, private and cadastral surveys
There are also established in connec
tion with the mapping, bench marks
or permanent monuments, which fur
nish accurate elevations above th
sea level for further level work, fo
engineering investigations and fo
such public works as canals, railroadE
roads, gnt other public or privat
A topographic map also shows th
feasible railroad routes of the coun
etry. New roads may be laid out fair
ly accurately with but little survey
ing. It is also useful for the inves
tigation of the water supply for town
and for the disposal of sewage. Th
traveling man and automobilist ar
glad to Wive maps of the state throug
which they travel, as they show th
most direct routes from town to town
without inquiry.
There have been mapped by the
United States Geological survey sine
the beginning of the work in 1882 46,001
square miles, or 34 per cent of tie
total area of the state of Montana
which is, 136,080, leaving, approxi
mately, 90,000 square miles of the
state still unmapped, an it is im
portant for the development of the
state still unmapped, and it is im
lain portions of this area should b
had at an early date.
During the present field season, Mr
Arthur Stiles, assisted by Messrs
Forster and Kent, will complete th
mapping of the Missoula quadrangle
embracing an area of, aproximately
1.000 square miles on the scale of tw
miles to the inch, with 100-foot con
The federal government has been
liberal in the appropriations for topo
graphic surveys, and for investigation
of the water resources, but the tim
has now come when it would be ad
vantageous and profitable for tis
state of Montana to appropriate fund
for co-operation with the Unite
States Geologic Survey, both in or
der to expediate the maiping of it
unmapped areas, and the investiga
tion of its water resources.
Massassachusetts, Rhode Island an
Connecticut are entirely mapped, an
have been for some years. This wa
accomplished by the states co-operat
ing with the United States Geologi
Survey; that is, the state appropriat
ed a certain sum of money to be ex
pended by the United States Geologi
Survey in making a topographic map
provided the geologic survey expende
an equal amount within the stat
from the federal appropriation, th
mapping being done by the Unite
States Geologic Survey in accordane
with an agreement entered into wit
the state. Many other States hav
seen the advantave of this arrange
ment, and have been quick to ava
themselves of It.

propriated for co-operation in topo
graphic mapping by the states named

Salt Lake City, Utah, June 6.--An
electric sign an eighth of a mile long
with letters 60 feet In height on the
side of a mountain peak is to be one
of the several unusual features of the
Forty-third national encanmpment of
the Grand Army of the Republic h}ere
from August 9 to 14. The sign no
doubt will be the largest ever built
and will be one of the most unique
features ever introduced at a G. A. it,
encampment. The letters will be
placed on the side of Ensign peak, a
mile north of the city, in a place
where they can be seen for over a
hundred miles both north and south in
tr;eat Salt Lake valley. I They will
make a most ottr mtiv display, and
at night a myriad of electric lights
will foram the letters. They will read.
WWelcome (1. A. R.," and no doubt it
will be a welcome that the aged war
riors will not soon forget. Either at
night or in the daytime the sign will
be the first sight of Salt Lake C'ity
and the nenampment which will meet
thl eye of the visitors as the incom
ing trains round the end of the moun
tains a hundred miles south of the
peak. It will be in plain view from
the time the train enters the valley
until it pulls into the depot.
The task of installing the letters on
the side of the mountain will be be
gun within the next few weeks and
will be hurried. It will be a difficult
task to raise the hugh wooden letters
to their positions and fasten them
down, but by the use of machinery, it
is considered possible by those who
w will undertake it. An electric light
C line will he run up the side of the
e mountain and will furnish the power
for the myriad of bulbs. The sign
t will be erected at an enormous cost.
t Another feature of the encampment
Swhich is attracting considerable at
tention is the "human flag" which is
o being arranged. If present plans are
carried out the flag will be the largest
ever formed in. the United States. It
will contain 4,000 school children, who
will he drilled in the art of producing
the waving effect to the flag and in
going throual' carious pretty drills.
