You are authorized to call upon the Sec retary of the Treasury u» issue the certifi cate;" of indebtedness needed to furnish t!ie funds in accordance with the allotment recommend^ by the board and approved by me, as the same shall be needed from time to time in pursuance of the terms of the 'act. ■ - :: The remainder of the report of the engi neers, which was not responsive to the cirection of the law. but »m« drawn at my lequest and for my information. I hereby approve; and when Congress reconvenes in January I shall submit a message to the two houses transmitting the report, an nouneins: my approval of the same and urging the adoption of the enabling legis lative measures recommended by the board. In its comprehensive report on the r*~ lan.atiou mork in general the er.sir.eers' Itoard BBJRB in part: The e,,£ineerint: structures of the various ] projects a;»-. as a whole, well designed and well built. Some of them, as the Pathfinder darn. the Shoshone dam. the Roosevelt dam and the filllMifcoii tunnel, are monuments reflecting great credit on both designer and builder. ■■■?--; ---••■ Modern irrigation being a relatively new art in this country, much freedom was allowed local engineers in the design of minor structures. While this -was a wise policy in the early stages of this work, it has resulted in some complicated and un ri«v*ssari!y expensive structures. With the present knowledge of the comparative merits of the different types, it is believed that standard designs of the simplest satis factory type should be adopted for all minor, structures. The most uncertain feature of nearly all th*- projects is the water supply. This is under state control, and in the prosecu tion of its work the reclamation service bears the same relation to the state as a private individual or corporation. Where the -water rights have been adjudi- : cated the rights of the United States are ; well defined, but elsewhere they are un certain and may prove to be materially different from that assumed. It is recommended that wherever pos sible steps be taken to secure an early adjudication of water rights on all projects where such adjudication has not yet been : mad' -. and that, pending such action, ex- i penditure be kept within the probable rights of th*- United States. The actual coPt of completed work has almost invariably exceeded the original estimates, and in the case of some struct ures has been two or three times as large. This increase in cost has been the cause of much of the discontent among the set tlers. It was partly due to a general in crease in the tost of labor and materials, partly to underestimates and an insuffi cient" allowance for contingencies and part ly to the necessity of doing: more work than was originally contemplated. Under existing regulations, the report sets forth, the construction charges must be returned to the reclamation fund in ten equal annual payments. This, it is said, is regarded as a hardship by the- settlers on some projects. who express a. desire for a eerie? of graduated construction payments increasing from 1 per cent or 2 per cent the first year to 14 or 15 per cent the tenth year. Should this .suggestion be generally adopted, it is pointed out, it would mean a. ■Slay of several years in the return of the Bran half of the investment, and a corre sponding delay in the completion of other v.-ofk. "On some of the projects 1n the semi-arid regions." say the' -?ngine*>rs, "such a modi fication in the' terms of payment may be necessary to prevent an absolute failure of the project, but the general adoption. of a system of graduated payments is not be lieved to be necessary or advisable."

CHICAGO'S RECORD YEAR Spent About $96,000,000 on New Buildings in 1910. ("hicago. T>ec. 2G.— Thi? city has shattered all previous building records in its history with a grand total of nearly |KJM,OO*. and in so doing has erected buildings for liv ing purposes costing in excess of $38,500,000, of which amount over $3M*MM was for finis. It has constructed buildings to meet the requirements of its rapidly growing manufacturing interests which approxi mated in cost JII.OVi.OOO and completed and entered upon the construction of buildings in its central district which in magnitude and cost set a new and higher standard for the- city. This is notably so in the case of the new Insurance Exchange, in Jackson Boulevard. The permit taken out for this building Rives its cost at W.0t0.000, which Is the largest ever taken out for any building erected by private interests in the history of the city. A striking illustration of the vast extent of tliis constructive work of the year ii furnished by the fact that the buildings for which permits were taken out will cover an ordinary single street frontage for over sixty-two miles. When the huge total of approximately $<vwt(tt.flPO was reached last year, exceed ing by the margin of $22,«W0.000 the construc tive work of any previous year, and by a still wider maxgin the Kgbest totals of any of the boom years just preceding the world's fair, it generally was believed that it would stand for some years as the high wat«r building mark of the city. The present year is a fitting climax to a wonderful period of constructive growth. What this amounts to may be better under stood when it is stated that during the last six years the total of the building per mits issued will approximate f4o", oft 0,000. The movement of real estate during t'le year was in the same large volume as the building operations, the total of the deeds filed for record at the Recorder "s office ag gregating StnjMtMßi exceeding the figures of the previous year by about J00.000.000 and approaching close to the huge figures ct the worlds fair boom years.
