NATIONAL REPUBLIC 4N TICKET. For President WILLIAM M'KINLEY OHIO. For Vice-President THEODORE ROOSEVELT NEW YORK. The general discussion of the Tonto Basin reservoir project has brought out the suggestion occa THH sio-nally that perhaps "SILTING" the reservoir would fl:i QUESTION, up, or at least have it3 capacity greatly les sened in the course of time, from the accumulation cf silt. This suggestion has arisen from the fact that the riv r3 of Arizona, when in flood in the valleys, carry a great quantity of silt. If there be any fear in that direction it is groundless so far as the Tonto Basin reservoir Is concerned. In the first place wrong conclusions ere drawn from the floods as seen in the Salt river as it passes through the valley. The fact is that by far the greater quantity of the matter carried In solution is gathered up after the river leaves the mountains. In the next place, and most important, th? Tonto Basin reservoir is so situated that it will be entirely practicable to effectually protect It from all danger --of filling up to any extent. The great amount of data wnich has been gath ered concerning this question is gen erally known to engineers and to the residents of the valley who have care fully studied the storage problem, but it is well to settle the misgivings of those who have not acquainted them selves with the primary facts on which the project Is based. The site granted by the government covers approxi mately twentyi square miles, and is substantially level. It covers a valky which is one mile to two miles wide and ten miles long, traversed by the Salt river, and a somewhat smaller valley traversed byi Tonto creek. Th? two streams form a Junction a short distance above the dam site. The eon tour line of the reservoir, in high water, is nearly seventy miles long, showing at once that it sweeps around numer ous ravines. On all sides the site Is suiTounded by barren, rocky hills. The flood waters running in from the sur rounding country after a rainfall are thus quickly transferred into these ra vines and gulches, and thence con veyed Into the reservoir site. On account of the rocky surface of the surrounding country the run-off la largely free from sediment, but un questionably some silt Is carried into the basin through the ravine gateways. But that it will be easily possible to prevent the entrance of 'this sedimentary- deposit into the reservoir is thor oughly established by the bisiory t the operations of the Debris Commis sion of California. In that state the problem of protecting the streams from sediment was solved Eimply and cheaply when it was discovered that It was only necessary to place cheap brush dams across the mouths of ra vines entering the streams. An ob struction once formed, nature did the rest. The silt was deposited at the barriers and back of them the deposits grew tn area and depth, it being nec t'Lsary only at lung intervals to in crease the height of the initial obstruct Hons. That this method would protect the Tonto Basin reservoir from the- seCi ment of the surrounding country, thsre cat) be no question, and future genera- tions can resort to it at slight expense if occasion arises. Against the sediment of the Salt river itself, nature has provided a means oC absolute protection which can be re sorted to by the people of this valley in future ages if it be found necessary. Before the river enters the reser voir site it passes through a deep, nar. row gorge, known as the "Canyon if the Upper Salt." Above this gorge there is another valley. A dam thrown across this canyon would form a per manent settling basin for all the waters of the watershed beyond. But it is not. probable that this gen eration would: have to resort to these simple and effective means. A reser voir holding water enough at one tim-5 to cover three-quarters of a million acres to a depth of one foot- will not b.- affected in our time by the light sedi ment of that region. Professor James D. Schuyler, recognized by the govern ment as the leading authority of the country on reservoirs, stated last sum' mer, after examining the'Tonto Basin reservoir, that the encroachments of sedimentary deposit upon the capacity of the reservoir would be practically nil. Mr. Arthur P. Davis, the hydrographer of the Geological Survey, who has de voted several years of study to the storage question, and who is now tlie government's chief hydrographer in the Nicaraguan canal investigations, alsc made an examination of this reservoir Bite last year and he agreed who Schuyler. In reality, the whole theory that great reservoirs- "will fill up-' is mainly untenable. Experience has proved that the belief is groundless. When the Sweetwater reservoir near San Diego was constructed it was freely predicted that it would "fill up" with sediment in a few years, and yet calculations based on the deposit already formed in that little reservoir show tl;at it will do service for one thousand years. It would be a cause of great regret if rre&ident McKInley lost votes in con sequence of 'the action THE taken by him In the CANTEEN canteen matter, action ISSUE. which constitutes- one of th( most praise worthy instances of good Judgment and Independence 'that can be credited to him. The canteen system in our army permits the regiment or battalion which 1? at a military pos't to establish a place at which supplies are sold, con sisting of most of those necessary small wares and luxuries which soldiers need, together with tobacco and the lighter alcoholic drinks. The sale of these latter Is permitted under close official supervision, making intoxica tion difficult, if not practically impos sible. If alcohol did not Intoxicate, its use by human beings could hardly be made a -subject of moral protest. It might still be physically deleterious; but so is the eating of saleratus bis cuit and pies of h.avy pastry an of fense against health which has not yet been made the subject of a great moral crusade. The canteen sys-tem takes the sling, as It were, out of alcohol, although Us use Is tolerated. If the canteen did not exist the soldiers would still have their alcohol, but would ob tain It under conditions that would certainly lead to intoxication. The canteen system is defended as highly advantageous by practically every on? who has made a disinterested study of it. Its opponents are those who have mistaken the shadow for the substance, and who are more Intent on prevent ing the use of alcoholic liquors than on lessening the terrible curse of drunk enness. The piesldeut, in re.Istins this blina fanaticism, is to be heartily coin me nded. A fashion note in a contemporary says that belts, gloves and neckties of rattlesnake skin are being worn by women. Think of a woiran arrayed in a silk worm dress, sealskin saeque. os trich feather hat, goat skin thoes. whalebone stays, kid skin gloves horse hide belt, tortoise shell comb, fish scale trimming, stuffed canary birds, chvm shell buttons, Spitz dog muff, mink tail collarette, alligator hide purse, and now a rattlesnake necktie. Solomon in all his glory was not such a menagerie as one of th-.se and yet we love them no matter what they wear. Local pride Is an appreciable quan tity in political campaigns, but visit ors in Lincoln, Neb., are said to bo surprised at the number of portraits of McKInley in the shop windows. The fact is that Lineol.. is a republican city, having given the republican can didate for president a large majority !r. 1896. Everyb diyi at Mr. Bryan's- home appears to have a friendly regard for the democratic nominee, but that is dif fer; nt from supporting him for presi dent at a critical juncture in utir na tional history. Tit'. Hnulh Afri- a ti v.ar has tio'.v l?n dragging along for t"ti ine-ntlis, ii'i l it limks as if the little republics v. otiM !-! able to resist full surrender to the big empire for a full year. That will be an achievement for which there are few parallels In history, Republicans are charged with ruin ing Porto Rico. Reports show that the imports and exports cf Porto Rico for th"emonth of May, 190C, were each about 100 per cent greater than for the corresponding month of last year. i TOPICS OF THE KOt'R W. L. Aldcn, writing in Pearson's magazine a financial article on the uses of solidified air, comments in U13 fol lowing strain on a certain possible in convenience of introducing it into dwel ling houses. There is, however, one danger in connection with solidified air to which the attention of the public has not yet been called. It is well known that all sorts of microbes that are found in water are preserved un harmed in ice, and that when the :ce melts they are set free to do their deadly work. Now sound is contained in air. and may it not very well hap pen that when the air is solidified whatever sounds may be contained in it may be preserved to be set free at some extremely .inconvenient time? Thus solidified Swiss air may be full of yodelling, and a brick of it placed in a bedroom at right may suddenly give forth the unholy sounds in the middle of the night. Or air from Italy may contain compressed hand-organ music, cr the unprintable remarks of tourists who have received their hotel bills with extra charges for "View of Vesuvius'' or "Association with the merr.ory of Milor Byron." The Old Midway church, in Liberty county, Ga., still standing, had for its pastor between 17S5 and 1791 Br. Abiel Holmes, the father of Oliver Wendell Holmes, and when President Washing ton paid h:s celebrated visit to Georgia in 1720, Dr. Holmes was made the chair man of the committee appointed by the congregation of Old Midway church to greet him. Dr. Joseph Le Conte. pro fessor of chemistry in the University of California, is one of the products of the Old Midway church. So also is United States Senator A. O. Bacon, and many people will be surprised to know that Governor Theodore Roosevelt, of New York, the nominee of the republican party for vice-president of the ITnit;-! States, is also of this same stock, deriv ing his connection with Old Midway church through his mother, who was born in Liberty county and whose pro genitors were proaiinent and Influential members of this church. Bound for San Franel?eo on a peril ous journey around the Horn, the New York harbor tug L. Lueken'oach has Just started on her long voyage today. The tug, one of the fastest and staunchest in this port, is scheduled to make the passage in' f jrfy-flve days, record time for a tugboat. Captain McKay, who is to be her commander in San Francisdo, will pilot the Luck?n bach on her ocean trip. Ke is an ex pert navigator. Much difficulty was experienced in finding the fifteen men who make up the crew, os the dangers that the little vessel will encounter will be enormous, even for an ocean-going tug. Only three or four tug boats have made; the trip around the Horn, the best record, of sixty-three da-3, having been made by the G. W. Fride, which successfully navigated the southern seas eight years ago. "The really comic tiling, though." re lates a Cambridge correspondent of the New York Sun in telling of the visit of the Cuban teachers to the Federation nf Women's clubs, "was the earnest little speech made by one of the Cuban wo men, a speech so bristling with sincer ity as to" be almost pathetic i:i its un conscious irony. This wo;r.-n thanked the federation for its beautiful and in spiring exposition of the 'club i.I.'.i' and remarked that she had frequently n i ticed that this same club life was tit? means in this country of eliminating from the social intercourse of women all those petty jealousies supposed to be an inherent part of the sex' make up. And at this those club women looked approvingly at each other and applauded." In the first published directory New York, which was issued over a century ago, the Vanderliilts. whose names appeared, were not of the old commodore's ancestors. They wc re Dutch and spoiled their names "Van dor Bilt." the most prominent among them being a well-to-do truckman. At that U:to the ancestors of the pres -nt multimillionaires were farmers on Sta ten island.
