Yuma. ATri.sz-3rxQ. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 1907. Irrigation Congress Visitors. Preparation for the housing and entertainment of the great crowd of visitors attracted to Sacramento in September for the Irrigation Congress and In terstate Exposition is going for ward rapidly and everything will be iu readiness on the date fixed. Already ten thousand rooms have been registered with the com mittee in charge, and members feel confident of their ability to insure the comfort and conven ience of all visitors who apply to them for accommodations. In England the house of lords has voted 111 to 3 in favor of a bill which provides that a woman shall not be disqualified by sex or marriage for election as councillor or alderman of the couucil of any county or borough, metropolitan boroughs included. Women shall be eligible as chair men of county councils or mayors of boroughs, but they shall not be justices of the peace by virtue of holding or having held such offices. It seems remarkable that so conservative a body as the house of lords should vote for so advanced a bill by a ma jority of more than three to one. Several years ago the house of commons passed a similar meas ure by a still heavier vote, 172 to 22. So the present bill is not likely to fail of passage in the lower house. Mr. Bondesson had another literary spasm last week. We can assure the well-fed president of the Water Users' Association that, the Sentinel has not pub lished any anonymous or faked communications, and will not. In this connection we will add that the Sentinel does not, be cause giving space to these cor respondents, necessarily endorse their expressed views, entirely. For instance, we are not fight ing the reclamation service and do not care to criticise its policy Irom any standpoint. Views ex pressed by correspondents are -wholly their own. The Enterprise kindly informs its 37 readers that, in the award ihg. of the town printing by the council, the Sentinel "only got a smell." What more could we expect, with the Enterprise ed itor's proboscis clear in up to his neck? It's a wonder the Sentinel got even a smell. Still we would have had the sewer effluvium. We would not eng croach upon the editor of the Enterprise in the domain of smells, however he is welcome to our share of sewage emana tions. The Water Users' Association Jast'Saturday awarded contracts ior most of its printing and pub lishing for the ensuing year to W. H. Shorey of the Examiner, whose bid was extremely low. He will never get rich over it, but as the poor devils of farmers Iiave to foot the bills contracted by the "sinecure bntch," we are pleased at the outcome. Rich Forests in Texas. Texas is- a large timber State. Its forests are one of its greatest resources. Much lumber has been wasted by clearing simply ior cultivation. The Texas peo ple are now beginning to realize the Importance of conserving this wealth. Some parts of the state are treeless, and tree plant ing has to be done. In the Pan handle region, in the spring of 1906, over 500,000 trees were set oit. Carrie Nation assured a police court judge last week that she would never go to hell. Well, that wilL be some consolation, at least, to 'undesirable citizens of the Harry Orchard class who are headed that way. Friends of Miss Wilma Gibson te ti gered hr a pleasant surprise party on Tuesday crenin- at the home of Mrs. Fred Collins, Montezuma Terra-e. The occasion ivus iu honor of Miss Gibson's eighteenth birthday. Yuraa friends of M. G. Saminiego, an old Arizona pioneer, are sorry to have learned of his death, which occurred at bis home in Tucson last Tursday. He had many warm friends amonj old rim' i-fsiilpnts of Yiwna. WHY NOT USE ECONOMY? Mr. Theilraann Tells Facts and Asks a few Pertinent Questions. Editor Sentinel. It is very much to be regretted that the Hon. James R. Garfield, secretary of the interior, during his rush (or rather, rushed) visit to Yuma was so completely con trolled bv Mr. Newell and Mr. Bondesson as not to allow acorn mitteeof farmers and water users to discuss matters with him or obtain anv information at his hands. He-was first announced to be here on the 10th, then on the 5th, then the reality was that he was rushed through on Sun day, the 4th. The secretary got no chance to see the gravity per tion of the valley where the ef fects of the present policy are most visible, nor to interview a committee of those who could show him. This was probably a wise pol icy for their own protection. At the public reception Mr. Newell announced that the pump system had been paid for and the trade for the Farmers' Gravity was about completed; that this would be put in repair and water furnished through for next year's crop all of which bad been pre viously announced through the press. He said the dam was about 70 per cent completed, but did not say wnat n would cost wnen complete a very important point to the people who have it to pay for. The time of completion, he said, would be in the winter of 1908, or in o bout eighteen months, if they did not suffer disappoint ment. But he did not advise us why J. G. White & Co. were re leased from their contract to have the dam completed within two years from date of contract for a little less than $900,000, and for which they were under forfeiture bond of $500 per day for every day over contract time. This would have been valuable information for the people, and an explanation they were enti tled to receive. If the contract had been enforced the dam would have been completed at the pres ent time; or at any rate the cost of construction would not, as it is now, be piling up on us to an unknown amount. ; No mention was made of the siphon under the Gila when it would be commenced or com pleted or the cost thereof. The tunnel through the mesa; the main canals; the distributing system of canals, he treated in like manner. Is it asking too mucli for those having an amount to pay to want to know what that amount is, when it is to be paid and the benefits to result therefrom are to begin? One point he impressed upon us they would commit the pos terity of the valley to the theory of practically managing the farmers' old gravity canal, which the engineers of the service and the officers of the company had declared to be impracticable. This is proposed to be done by a pump. The canal should be cleaned to a gravity grade at low water mark. A gravity ca nal takes its water from the surface flow of the river, and therefore coutains a less per cent of silt than water from a pump, whose suction must be consider-' ably below the surface. Why pump this muddy water into a canal that can be supplied with clearer gravity water? The ca nal has to be cleaned, whether supplied by pump or gravity; pumping, therefore, adds to the necessity and cost of cleaning, and were the pump transformed into a dredge, a great point in economy is at once scored. Why not repair and put in operation the present dredge in the head of the gravity canal and keep the grade of the canal l,ov enough to take low water flow? It is at once seen that this will be more economical than installing a pump of sufficient capacity to supply the needs of the valley. Or still better, why not secure a lease of the system of the L, L. and I. Company, which has proved itself thoroughly practi cal and could be kept in repair at small expense, aud the entire valley would be enabled to de velop during the prolonged con struction of this project.- It has been thoroughly demonstrated that pump water cannot be con ducted more than six or seven miles at a profit to the consumer. This limited area the present pump could supply. Beyond this area gravity water is the only economic proposition, and to supply which is the all-impor tant purpose of the reclamation service being camped among us. The construction and maintain ing of elaborate headquarters; the purchasing and operating of large stores, and the construe tion of railroads for the South ern Faciuc to the dam are not the primary objects for which we mortgage our all. We are not "tiste dogs' snap ping at the heels of slow pedes trians, but we are just what the secretary would have found us had he done himself the honor of an interview. Mr. Newell's announcement of creating the new office of dog catcher indicates that he has at least taken notice, and Mr. Bon- desson's pleased smile, full of expectation of receiving the new appointment confirms Mr. De- Berry's statement that Bondes son had his eye up the line of promotion in the reclamation service rather than to the end of serving the farmer.
