Aggregates to Be Used In Concrete
The sand, stono and gravel usually
'ound upon the farnj. lands of the
United States are generally suitable
'or concrete construction provided
the following precautions are taken:
1.?These aggregates must bo free
'rom vegetable matter, dirt, or other
2.?When using bank-run gravel,
the sand must be separated from the
tones or pebbles by screening thro
i Vi-inch screen.
3.?In small concrete structures,
such as drain tile, fence posts, etc.,
the coarse aggrcgato (crushed rock
or gravel) should range In size from
% to Vi Inch. For larger work, such
is silos, barn doors, ordinary founda
tions, etc, coarse aggregate should
range form 1 % Inches to 4 Inch.
4 ?The sand used should be hard,
coarse, and clean, and graded from *4
Inches to fine, with the large size pre
dominating. Use great care in hand
mixing. It is economical to buy a
?small machine if the farmer Intends
to use concrete In large quantities.
1.?Size of measuring box for sand
should be 2 feet square by 1 foot high
thus containing 4 cubic feet.
2.?Load sand on wheelbarrows and
wheel onto mixing board.
3.?Fill sand-mcasuring box, lift box
and spread sand four Inches thick
4.?Take two bags of cement, place
contents as evenly as possible over
5.?Turn the sand and cement over
until thoroughly mixed, so that no
streaks of sand or ccmont appear. _
6.?Spread the mixture of sand and
cement out carefully, place measuring
box beside it. and fill twice with stone
or gravel, then empty onto sand or
cement mixture and mix thoroughly.
7.?Add three-quarters of required
amount of water slowly and evenly,
at same time mixing the mass.
8.?Continue mixing, adding bal
ance of water when dry spots appear,
until whole mass has been turned over
three or four time. This should be
sufficient. After final turning shovel

DELEGATE WICKERSHAM IS
AGAIN ON THE WAR PATH:
HAS FEARS OF MONOPOLY
TACOMA , Washington, January 4.
?Delegate Wlckershara is of the
opinion that a movement Is on foot
to grab the salmon fisheries of Alas
ka and that 'he effect of a bill now
pending before Congress would be to
facilitate efforts of Chicago meat
packers and allied Interests to get
possession of one of the richest re
sources of the territory.
The fisheries of Alaska are worth
conservatively speaking, $400,000,000,
and Wlclersham believes that If the
meat packing Interests and affiliated
capitalists get through congress the
bill that Is started In the grind they
will get the Alaska fisheries.
Representative Charlos C. Carlln, of
Virginia, Introduced the bill on the
opening day of congress. It was re
ferred to the ways and means commit
tee. Wlckersliam's first move will be
to try to have the bill referred to the
commltteo on territories.
The bill provides that "In lieu of
all other federal or territorial license
fees and taxes" every person or com
pany engaged in fishing shall pay a
: certain stipulated nominal license
fee, including $100 per annum for each
! fish trap site, from three to six cents
a case of canned salmon, according
| to the grade, and other small charges.
Wlckersham holds that this lang
| ungo not only would make It Impos
sible for the territory to tax the fish
ing Industry on large holdings, In
cluding about $12,000,000 worth of
shore property, canneries, etc., but
that it probably would relieve the Ash
ing interests of payment of the fedor
al corporation incomo taxes. Tho bill
thus describes a Ash-trap site:
Each Ash-trap site shnll consist of
a reserved area In tho water, rectang
ular In form. Tho size (to be deter
mined by the locator) shall not bo

moro than 1000 feet ono way or more
than 3000 feet the other way. A trap
may bo built anywhere within the lim- |
Its of such aroa. The general course |
of the trap shall be lengthwlso of the
trap site. Nor. more than one trap
or other Ashing appliance may bo con
structed or operated at the snmo time
within the limits of an)- such reser
ved area. There shall bo clear side
spaces or passago ways of not less
tbnn 2,600 feet laterally between the
trap sites and clear end spaces or pas
sage-ways of not less than 800 feet
endwlso between all fish-trap sites,
and between all constructed traps.
Wlckeruham has calculated thnt un
der this language every fish-trap site
can bo made to covor 279 acres. In
other words, for a license fee of a
paltry $100 tho exclusive fishing right
to 279 acres Is conveyed.
Another section of the bill reads:
Prom and after the location of any
trap site and after tho approval there
of by the secretary of commerce the
claimant therof and his heirs, execu
tors, admlnlstvators, successors and
assigns shall havo the exclusive right
thereof to occupy, maintain and fish
the same; to renew tho llconso there
of year by year until abandoned, for
feited or terminated through opera
tion of law; to mortgage, sell and
transfer such rights during the time
as he or they shall comply with the
laws of the United States pertaining
It Is asserted that this would en
ablo the meat trust to send locators
to tako possession of tho trap sites
or, If it did not care to do that, it
could buy of other locators and se
cure a monopoly.
There are Indications that the bill
will create as big a furore as other
measures in preceding congresses,
which, it was alleged, were designated
to procure monopolistic control of Al
askan coal deposits.?(Tacoma News)

PUEBLO NEWS NOTES
About 60 cords of wood have been
hauled this week for heating purpos

The heavy fall of snow has made
the travelling between tho Pueblo

tedious process. One tip-over has al

Several days were spent In cleaning
off the winter's Bnow from tho Pueblo
residences. During the mild spell the
melting of this snow caused some
slight damage and considerable an
Friday tho boiler of the heating
plant sprung a leak. Mr. Vey came
