The inventory -cf the estate, filed, with the will, reveals the fact that he j rincip::! holdings of the estate covsi-t of real estate located in Tres co:t and in Bouse, Yuma county. Lots 10. 12 and 14, block' 4, citv of Prescott. are valued at $5,000 and are to he turned over to Mrs. Burke. The- 21 town lots at Bouse, the tract including the hotel owned by the dcrca ed, are given to the son with the understanding that the mother retains a half interest in this real es tite during her rife-time.

W. Heap succinctly uointcd out when discussin the problem. "Prescott is the on'y ition is taken looking to an addition kmiwn city in the west surrounded supply., the city may well face the by snow-capped mountains, that per-1 possibility of being without fire pro mits the water therefrom to flow un-; tection next summer. For the past impeded through the town, to a point three vears as chairman of the water twenty miles below the city, where it is pumped out of the ground and 1 back again to the city," which is ex- , actly the situation anent the Del R;o pumping plant, the city's principal ' water source. And the Del Rio plant is 1.100 feet lower than Prescott! In addition, its equipment, inadequate "at best and damaged by the fire there some -.. -ik. ago, would soon have to bo repkiced. The pipe, line, old and of ! wrought iron, is on the verge of go- 1 ing to pieces and necessitates con-' stant repairs. To properly equip the j Del Rio plant and relay the pipe line would cost, it is estimated, in the neighborhood ihf $600100, Avhereas to construct a storage dam and res- ervoir to impound the waters 1 Potts Creek and Aspen Creek, it is ' said, would not cost half as lurch. Tiie Del Rio plant is twenty miles distant and l.HKI feet lower than the city. The Potts Creek site is less than four miles away and 500 feet higher than, the highest point in Prescott. In addition, the latter site w ill impound several times as much . v. at,' r. a, .-an be pumpe,d f.rp;n all the ! plaui' Clerk Citv 1 rank Whitman's re I cords show that it cost the city 15,!j cents per thousand gallons to pump water from Del Rio in 1918. This in cludes nothing but the cost of pump ing, the total cost, including upkeep, interest on bonds, etc., being 60 cents per thousand gallons. Engi neers have already estimated that the cost of bringing water from a storage dam on Potts Creek, could not exceed two cents per thousand gallons. While Engineer Phillips will in vestigate the four sites named above, it is generally conceded that the Totts Creek water shed offers the logical solution for the city's water j problem.

Why not build a 100-foot dam, say. and impound sufficient water for a city several times the present size of Prescott?" Neither would Engineer IPhlips venture a guess as to the probable cost, preferring to wait until he had made his examinations and submitted report, but, back in 1897, Engi- Incer Fisher gave the council the fol- lowing estimate for a 65-foot dam: Canal and diverting dam from Aspen Creek $ 5.000 Cost of dam (approxi mately) Pipe line to city reser voir .

There are four other members of p to local requirements, but with j the board of regents to be named ,;ie building of Fort Whipple, he .ad-.and Governor Campbell ftatcd that ijts there can be no enlargement of 'present facilities that will care for j this added consumption and leave j sufficient to meet the needs of the cjty's population. He favors the building of the fjotts Creek 0am, as does Mayor Heap and practically all the city officials, although they. of j course, will be guided to their final ; decision by the recommendation of j Knginecr Phillips, but there is small ! doubt in the minds of those comers- j ant with the various watersheds but i that Engineer rhillips w ill decide j the Potts Creek site offers the most i logical and economical source for the j city's water needs. ' Because of its close proximity to! the city, its ample watershed, the fact tluit it is some 500 feet higher than the city, thus offering in grav ity flow- to the local reservoir, doing away with expensive pumpimj and requiring but little in the way of maintenance or care thjs site is far' hcar it is believed of any of the ihci's under consideration. In addition to the cost of this pro- ject. there would also have to be laid a new system of piping within the city, as the present equipment, old and" of cfleap construction, is, in blunt language, a pile of junki In many places, employees of the water department state, when breaks have occurred, it has been found the pipe's are practically mere scgements of rust held together by the earth's pressure. To construct this dam, giving Prescott an adequate water supply for years to come, and to build a new reservoir at some point in West Prescott. that would be well above the city's highest point, thus assuring ample pressure, and relay the present worthless distributing system would cost, it is believed, not to exceed $300,000. That the city is well able, financi ally, to vote such a bond issue, is made apparent by the fact that in 1918 the assessed valuation of the city was $5,700,000. The state law provides that the city may not issue bonds in excess of 15 per cent of its assessed valuation, which gives Pres cott a limit of $855,000, and as the city owes at present but $420,000, she is still able to vote bonds in the sum of $435,000 if necessary. In a nutshell, Prescott must have in additional water supply. Potts Crcek offers the logical site. The city can vote the bonds. Let's safeguard the city and assure its future growth by building the storage dam. AVENGES DEATH OF HTS FRIFND OVPR THFRF.
