THE GREAT IRRIGATION ENTER-
PRISES UNDER WAY.
A Retrospect of Similar Works in the
Past-Some of the Great Works Ac
complished and Under Way in South
The selection of reservoir sites and the
constructi'in of dams for the purpose of
retaining the excess of water during the
period of flood for the time of drouth,
for the benefits resulting from irriga
tion, domestic water supply and the
furnishing of a cheap motive power, is
not a new idea or theory by any means,
according to Wegmann.
Ancient works still ex it-ting in India
and Ceylon bear evidence that the con
struction of reservoirs for storing water
dates from a very remote period of his
tory. The ordinary manner of forming
these basins, some of which were of vast
extent, consisted in closing a valley by
dams of earth; and it was not until
comparatively recent times that walls
of masonry were employed for such pur
poses. This method seems to have
been first adopted in the south
ern part of Spain, where about the
sixteenth century large reservoirs for
irrigation were constructed. The oldest
•existing masonry dam is that of Al
manza, situated in the Spanish province
of Albaceta, near the town after which
it is named. The exact date of its con
struction is unknown, but it appears
from old documents that it was in use
prior to 1586. The Alicante dam was
built during the years 1579 to 1694 to
supply the arid region of Alicante for
irrigation. Both of the above named
dams are still in use. Numerous dams
have been built in Spain since the above
dates, the latest of record being the two
Higar dams, which were built in 1880 on
the Martin river, a distance of 19 miles
from the city of Higar, in order to form
two large reservoirs for irrigation pur
The great results obtained by irriga
tion in Spain induced the French gov
ernment to encourage similar improve
ments in Algiers. Among the import
ant reservoirs constructed by the French
in Algiers for this purpose, the largest
was that of Habra river, the capacity of
which was to be nearly 8,000,000,000
gallons. The dam was commenced in
the year 1865, but was not completed
The two greatest undertakings in the
United States are the Quaker Bridge
dam on the Croton river, the reservoir
of which is to retain 32,000,000,000 gal
lons of water for the supply.of New York
city, and the San Mateo dam of
the Spring Valley Water com
pany, whose reservoir is also
to retain 32,000,000,000 gallons,
for the water supply of San Francisco.
There is at present a great deal of enter
prise being manifested in the construc
tion of dams for the retention of water
for irrigationjpurposes in Southern Cali
fornia. The Bear valley dam, which
was commenced in 1883 by an embank
ment of earth six feet high, is two and
one-half miles above the present dam of
masonry. The dam thus constructed of
earth retained all the water for the fol
lowing twelve months, causing the over
flow of four hundred and fifty acres of
land. The masonry dam was built dur
ing the latter half of 1884. This year
tbe Bear valley company are construct
ing another dam in the canon below
their present masonry dam, which is to
be 120 feet high. These reservoirs will
retain water sufficient to irrigate Red
lands, Moreno and Alesßandro, in San
Bernardino county, and Perris lands in
San Diego county. The Sweetwater
dam, in the Sweetwater valley, is 90
feet high, and will retain water
sufficient to irrigate lands of Chula
Vista, South San Diego and other
large tracts of land and furnish National
-Oity with water for domestic U6e. An
other great storage reservoir is the San
Diego Flume company's, fifty-five miles
back from San Diego in the Cuyamaca
mountains, having a flume line nearly
fifty miles in length, traversing vast
areas of fertile laud. The lie met valley
dam, on the head waters of San Jacinto
river, whose reservoir is being increased
to a sufficient capacity to supply water
for irrigating purposes for South San
Jacinto, Hemet valley and other lands,
in all, 100,000 acres or more.
There is to be a reservoir on Rock
creek, near Lancaster, of sufficient ca
pacity to retain water for the irrigation
of Rock creek valley and adjacent lands.
Now come capitalists from Cincinnati
and buy a reservoir site on the head
waters of tbe Mohave river, in San Ber
nardino county, who will construct
reservoirs of sufficient capacity to
irrigate 120,000 acres of land of Chino
and the surrounding vicinity. There
are still others in the embryo stage, one
of which I happen to know of at pres
ent, the waters of which will furnish
motive power for the sawing of lumber
from the adjacent forest of pine, etc.,
and flaming the same to a railroad, to fur
nish water to work vast beds of placer
grounds and to irrigate thousands of
acres of good land.
Still another is the gigantic plan of
transforming Lake Elsinore into a stor
age reservoir to supply with irrigation
water a principality of the richest land
in Southern California. Thus is the
foundation being laid for thousands of
homes that will be more than beautiful
because they will be bountiful. Where
there is plenty there ia comfort.
AN EDITOR'S TROUBLES.
A Newspaper War in the Antelope
The Antelope Valley Times is in con
siderable trouble, and at the present
writing it is hard to tell what the out
come will be, says the Lancaster Ga
zette. It will be remembered that after
the libel suit against the Gazette by G.
B. Ladd, one of the . partners of the
Times, S. A. Drummond, the other part
ner, took Ladd's name out of the paper,
whereupon Ladd entered suit to dis
solve the partnership and other relief.
He got out an injunction and work was
suspended, taking charge of the office
himself Thureday, June 4th. Since
that date no work was done on the pa
per until Wednesday evening of this
week. Ladd brought a printer up from
Los Angeles to get out the paper this
week, but after getting here the printer
refused to work for him. Ladd then
claimed the printer owed him a small
amount for his fare from Los Angeles
and seized his valise for the sum. The
printer swore out a warrant and
had Ladd arrested for petit larceny,
on which charge he was convicted arid
fined by Judge Morris 1(25, or twenty-five
days in the county jail. This fine he re
fused to pay, and on Wednesday he was
taken to Los Angeles by Constable
Mayes. There he took an appeal, and is
now out under bond. Tbe office is now
in charge of 8. A. Drummond, but he is
minus the forms with which to print the
paper, and this issue of the Times will
be rather diminutive, being a four-col
umn paper. Ladd took with him the
regular issue of the Times, and it is sup
posed he also carried away the forms, as
they are gone and cannot be found. He
telegraphed for the subscription book
on Wednesday night, but Mr. Allen,
whom Ladd left in charge of the office,
having released everything to Drum
mond, did not comply with the order for
said books. Ladd says the end is not
reached yet, and even threatens to teach
our justice a little law ere he is through
with it. Drummond is running the pa
per this week under a permit from the
superior court, and the dissolution of
partnership is set for hearing next Mon
ALLEN VS. ALLEN.
Former Los Angeles People Suing for
Divorce in San Bernardino.
Peter Allen, formerly a merchant of
San Gabriel and later a resident of this
city, is suing his wife, Mary Allen, for
divorce in the San Bernardino courts.
The plaintiff alleges habitual intem
perance, adultery and desertion; while
the defendant responds with a cross
complaint, alleging cruelty. She de
clares that her husband has for a long
time been wont to take physical exer
cise in the way of breaking chairs over
his wife's head, slapping her and strik
ing her with his clenched fists, and that
he has even removed her from the sun
shine of earth by locking her up in a
lonesome cellar for days at a time.
On Friday the court awarded the de
fendant $150 for attorney's fees and $50
per month alimony, pending the trial of
the cause, which will occur in the near
In connection with this affair a queer
story of Mr. Allen's shrewdness was
yesterday told a Hebald reporter. It
is said that when he first located in
Beaumont his wife was not living with
him, but, <-ii the contrary, was leading
a life which was not calculated to cause
her husband much peace of mind. All
of his endeavors to induce her to return
to him were fruitless, and he apparently
gave up hoping to get her home.
One day a telegraph boy called on the
fickle Mary with a message. It was the
announcement of her husband's death,
and queries as to the disposition of his
estate. Mary consulted a lawyer, who
advised her to go at once to Beaumont
and take possession of the property. So
she went, and on alighting at the sta
tion, was met by Mr. Allen in person.
She first thought he was a spook, but
was soon undeceived, and found that
the message was but a means of getting
A Fatal Mistake.
Physicians make no more fatal mistake than
when they inform patients that nervous heart
troubles come from the stomach and are of
little consequence. Dr. Franklin Milei, tho
noted Indiana specialist, has proven the contrary
in his new book on "Heart Disease," which
may be had free at all druggists, who
guarantee and recommend Dr. Miles un
equaled New Heart Cure, which has the largest
sale of any heart remedy In the world. It cures
nervous and organic heart disease, short breath,
fluttering, pain or tenderness in the side, arm
or shoulder, irregular pulse, fainting, smother
ing, dropsy, etc. His Restorative Nervine cures
headache, fits, etc.
