Roosevelt, June IS. (Special to the Republican.) Work on the Tonto dam is progressing at the rate of four hun dred yards per diem. The gates in the tunnel have been placed and the river is now running through the tunnel and the cut on the north side of the dam is under progress of being filled up. There are four derricks in the cut working full time and doing their stunt of one hundred yards a day each. They are somewhat handicapped for sand as the present capacity of the sand crusher is not enough to keep up with the demand, but this will soon be remedied as a greater working capacity is being put in the sand crusher to meet the demand. Work on the electric railroad is be ing pushed as fast as material arrives on the ground. The rails are all laid with the exception of about five hun dred feet which will be added as soon as they get here. Some ties are alos lacking. Poles were begun to be put in place today. About 100 applications have been re ceived for the position of motorman which seems to appeal to a great many notwithstanding the fact that in case of accident the engine would keep going either down "a very steep hill on one side or into the canal on the other side. This line has more curves than a budding debutante, and from its observatory car can be seen as fine a view of the Tonto and Salt river basin as could be desired, sad observation cars being entirely of steel construction and ten in num-lx-r. It is understood that the man agement is to run two trips daily, east and two west, and is to be hauled by a twelve-ton engine. Officers at pres ent of the road are as follows: L. C. Hill, president; C. W. Smith, vice president; R. R. Coghlan, manager; George Fisher, constructing electrical engineer; L. L. Krasier, first assist ant. This road will be in operation about the first of September and will save the government a small matter of $10,000 in transportation. The ground for the new town site of Roosevelt has at last been agreed upon after several places had alter nately been chosen. The merchants have been allotted their ground for their different lines of business, with the provision that they must have commenced to re build by the 1st of August or lose their holdings in the new towji. Some of the mercnants not caring to have the job of moving have sac rificied their businesses rather than tackle it. Joe T. Akers, who started here with a capital of about $500 and quit with a stock of $5,000, be sides money in the bank and a good time of two years and half, sells his holdings here at invoice price and throws ill the buildings, worth about $soo, to Webb & Sons, rival mer chants.

John Belsar and Webb & Sons start tomorrow to build a dam across the Cottonwood and lay a pipe line from there to a storage reservoir, thence to the ne wtown for a water supply. At present several buildings are con templated with walls of fire-proof ma terial to be composed of either con crete or adobe, according to which is decided on as the cheapest. The firms interested in this are M. C. Webb & Sons, general merchandise; John Belsar, wholesale and retail butcher; K. A. Duarte. general mer chandise; Frazier & Strait, ice-croam and cold drinks. The cent mill is shut down for the present as they are stocked up to full capacity, with cement, all bins and storehouses being full. In the mean time it is being overhauled and made ready for a continuous flow of cement as soon as the occasion demands It. Mrs. S. S. Thompson Hallle and Sherman Thompson, wife and children of S. S.

Stages of the Mesa-Roosevelt Stage company come and go to and from here in all directions, loaded with pas sengers and express. The government has a float or barge being built. 32 feet long, to be used for crossing the Suit river at this place for the accommodation of travelers and freight passing through this coun try from Globe to Mesa, to Payson and roints north. It will be larse enough to transfer all vehicles en route to and from above places, and between the O'Rourke camp government sides.

The second crop of alfalfa is about harvested in this part of the valley, and owing to the shortage of the hay crop in Southern California the deal ers there are buying all the outside hay they can get, and the Salt River vailey is furnishing Its part. The re sult is that prices are good with pros pect for better, along in the season. The first and second cuttings In our neighbofhood are in most cases, sold. However, with the prospect we have ahead for water, there should be at least two more cuttings made, though some of the fanners are talking of growing seed. Past experience having proven this to be a very profitable crop. The farmers under the Arizona and Appropriator canals are rejoicing to see the. water hunning on their land once more. We hud become so used to having water when ever wanted dur ing the past year, that when it be comes necessary for the officials to shut it out while putting on the fin ishing touches to the Granite Reef project we thought our crops would wither up and blow away. We had forgotten the time when we had been without the life-giving fluid for weeks when we needed it most, while the dams were oi't and the cara! com panies sitting Idly by making no at tempt to assist us. However these days are happily past and we feel that with the completion of the Granite Reef dam, a new era has begun for the agricultural as well as other interests of our valley. The melon crop which Is the only one that really suffered for lack of water Is damaged but little and that only in the instance of a few water melons. The cantaloupes coming through the ordeal splendidly. Harvesting will commence soon, and, as it is a well known fact that our heavy soil produces a better flavored as well as better appearing melons, that does the higher sandy ground we expect to ship the best melons sent from the north side this season.
