Although there are three pairs of gates in the tunnel, made and in stalled with the idea of never hav ing them break or get out of or der, the reclamation service feels it wise to improve the gates in such a way as to safeguard this im portant point still further. Bronze facings, impervious to rust or corro sion to the mineral water of the reservoir, will be substituted for the present iron and steel ones In the event .the first set of gatei, go bad. I lie second and third can be used to check the drain of wate- from the bottom of the reservoir. But should all the gates be broken ci damaged, the lake would drain to its last drop, unless some extraor dinary repair measures could be ef fected. The engineers in conference with Mr. Hanna were Consulting Ex perts n. c. llenny and L. ('. Hail, and Electrical Engineer O. H. En sign. "There is three inches of snow over the Strawberry project in Utah," said Mr. Hanna. 'The difference in climate, due to elevation anil the f:ict Strawberry is five hundred miles north of I'hoenix, is unite notice able. Of course irrigation and cul tivation are interrupted there.

A well known (Ilendale business man informed the Republican last night that the move is the result of un satisfied political ambitions on the part of the complainants. The names of the men who have backed the suit ale: V. E. Messinger, W. c. Welsh, J. L. Gant. K. J. Hock, J. H. Hill, 11. liogateroff, O. G. Engle hart. It. K. Fuller and ( O. Nicstreth. The complaint avers that the defen dant officials are about to sell water bonds to the amount of $40,000 to east ern capitalists, and that the price ipioled is too low to m:ike the deal a profitable one for (Ilendale. It is said that the movement is not the result of the sentiment of the citizens at large. SPECIALISTS STUDYING NEW DISEASE OF TEETH Salt River Valley Found to be One of Localities Where "Brown Stain" is Prevalent (Special to Republican) TE.Mi'E, Jn. 12 Dr. Frederick S. McKay, of Colorado Springs, C(lo., left. Monday for his home, af ter spending some ten days visit ing Dr. V (i. DeVere. on North Mill avenue. Dr. McKay is one of a committee of scientists that have been doing special research work in connection with a certain brown stain that is found on the teeth. The fact that the stain occurs on so many teeth of so many people in the Salt River Valley induced the doctor to come to Tempo and secure the co-operation of Dr. De Vore in prosecuting his investiga tions. Existing only in certain localities the brown stain, as it is scientifical ly known, s very prevalent, in cer tain sections of this valley and, 1n gathering statistics, Drs. McKay and t'eVore found a surprising number of cases in Mesa, Florene and the Indian school at Saca.on At the latter place, of some two hundrod children whose teeth were examined, all but one Wore, found to be poss essed of "brown stain." From the numerous cases observed dati was obtained to be used in further study. The committee that ha the. in vestigation in charge is having ex haustive tests made 'if the water and food in the districts where the cases are numerous, and hopes to be able to ascertain what is 'he cnuse if the stain, a fact fiat is not at present known. Investigations nlso include the method of prevent ing if possible, the the occurrence of the stain. Dr. McKay has made investigations that have taken him xll over the United States and de- WATER VUIIIS RECORD READ Government Presents Long Depositions in Suit to Oust Grand Canyon Cat tle Company from Water-hole-niining-claims Wading through huge masses of pure reading matter, contained in the most voluminous set of deposi tions ever filed in an Arizona case, the government made progress in the suit to cancel the "mining claim" patents held by the Grand Canyon Cattle company, yesterday. James M. Sheridan, special assistant to the attorney general of the United States was on his feet most of the day, reading to Judge Sawtelle's court, the testimony collected from various experts, to try to prove that the patents were secured under an al leged fraud, in order that the owners might control the water supply of the Houserock valley a rich graz ing section of northern Coconine county. But one effort was made to im prove the claims, as the law says mining claims must be improved says the government. Out of four lode claims and one mill site, not enough real mining work was done to secure title to one good healthy mine, is the contention of the com plainants. On the admissability of certain portions of the testimony particu larly voluntary statements by gov ernment investigators the attorneys wrangled calmly and dispassionately. A good many objections were made by the defense as to the materiality of certain parts of the depositions. Documents In the case have re quired years to compile and many trips through the Houserock region. At the time of trial, reams and reams of "copy" are in evidence containing material gathered in a score of places even as far away as Cheyenne, Wyoming. The hearing will occupy all of the week, it is thought, and until it is known for certain and sure just when the trial will be concluded, ro other cases will be called. The ses sion will occupy itself with civil enses only, and no jury will be called. NOTICE Irish cobler and Bliss Triumph sweet potatoes, plant early for quick profit.

Here set forth, besides election and census returns, sporting records, industrial and financial reports, a New York City gazetteer, and the countless for mal informatory departments to which the years have accustomed readers of The World Almanac, are a review of the war in Europe; notes on the wars of the world; the political state platforms of 1914: details of the spe cial or emergency tax: analysis of the prison population; factory statis tics; workmen's compensation laws, occupations in the United States; the Federal Reserve Act; the Federal Trade Commission: statistics of fore ign born population in the United States: a description of the Mexican situation; facts about the Chinese Re public: the progress and plans of the Palisades driveway; a paper on the aeroplane and aviation generally in war, and too many other things to receive even a reviewer's bare mention.
