Sickler, secretary of the Fargo
Hi Moorhead Street Railway Co., ar
ftved at the Waldorf this morning from
^Vilkesbarre, Pa. Coming west he
4gent a few days at Chicago with the
manager of the Electrical Installation
Co., and completed contracts for th«
j&argo and Moorhead lines and ar
longed other matters connected With
fit construction work.
ttporter
The first thing Mr. Sickler Said to a
for The Forum was that if
the beautiful weather which Fargo was
ilbving could be guaranteed for a few
greeks, construction work for the Far
go street railway could be pushed w.th
Vigor.
Mr. Sickler said he was ready to taki
fife people into his confidence and tell
them about the progres sof the street
railway company. He stated: "None
6t the original promoters of the roaii
liave anything whatever to do with the
present company, either financially or
ill a business way and the Fargo &
Moorhead Street Railway Co. should
ntt be held responsible for what the
Original promoters did, or did not do.
The people behind the enterprise now
ire putting in their own money, as the
have faith in the two cities and their
fitture growth, as well as the territory
contiguous."
^Continuing Mr. Sickler said: 'ffhis
jbphipanyis not floating bonds or iftock
on the market, the gentlemen interested
kre putting up their own money to
tojild the road. We shall, put the roatl
in now and do the work as fast as the
Weather will permit. Since 1 was here
itt May we have devoted a great deal 0!
tjfrie completing arrangements and
many great obstacles have been over
come.
*'If anyone thinks that a proposition
df this kind can be floated in the money
Market he had better try it. It is siirt
ply impossible as Wall Street is at the
gresent time to float any kind of bus?
H«ss proposition.
.'"We received this morning the trills
lading for the first installment 6f
rails for the lines, seven cars aggre
gating over 200 tons. They were ship
ped by the Carnegie Co. from Bessemer
last Monday. They were promised a
fjfew days before, but they could not
get the cars and be loaded until the
time stated and they are expected in
Fargo in a day or two. The rails for
both lines have .been contracted for,
•nd are paid for. The rails are much
heavier than the plans first provided
and our contract, too. with the con
struction people provides for a much
heavier tie than the one proposed and
there will be more poles to the nvle.
In short we have provided for a much
flatter toad than the one originally
proposed. We have concluded leases
with the N. P. for twenty years, for the

JONES WAS NOT THE SLASHER
fllia ftvM fllrwi MMV la Pt»thwgad to the
t: Aaaanll CM Brwabt Hjr MCNEH,
Harry Jones, employed as a barber in
Hank AtkipsonV shop on lower Front
Street, was arrested about 5 o'clock last
evening on a warrant sworn out in Jus
tice Ryan's court, charged with making
an assault with a dangerous weapon.
James McNeil, who was sent up yester
day to do five days in tlie county jail
'on a conviction of assault and Wtery, is
the complaining witness.
McNeil states that w^ije engaged in
scuffle with Annie Oterstetter, the
waitress, in front of the Star Restaurant,
that Jones interfered and, struck him
"ver the head with a sharp instrument
^r cut him with a knife. When ar
raigned yesterday morning on the as
sault charge McNeil displayed to the
court a gash in the back of his head.
He was taken to Citv Physician Hen
ning and several stitches were taken in
the wound.
Jones denies striking or cutting Mc
Neil. He states that he Was boarding
at the Star Restaurant atid that when
he discovered the girl struggling with
McNeil on the sidewalk that he stepped
out, and separated thetn and pulled the
girl away. From the testimony given at
the hearing this morjiing it seems that
there was a general mixup on the side
wak in which a number of men partici
pated.
The testimony at the hearing this
ftiorning was very conflicting, ahd the
complaining witness wholly failed to es
tablish the identity of the party who
struck or cut hint. The court cjis^harg

STREAMS IN KENTUCKY.
Co-operative arrangements have been
made between the United States geo
logical survey, through its hydro-eco
nomic section, and Professor Chase
Palmer* of the Central University ol
Kentucky, at Danville, for the. mainte
nance ot sin extended series of chemi
cal examinations of the water of the
principal rivers ih that state. Th'.s work
is carried on under an act of congress
authorizing the geological survey to
determine and report upon the water
supplies of the United States.
Up to the present time comparatively
little has been known either of the
quantity and quality of Kentucky wat
ers, or of their availability for use in
domestic, supply, especially in connec
tion with the larger municipalities of
the .state. The plan which has recently
been put into operation contemplates
the periodical examination of the
waters of Kentucky River at Jackson,
Beattyville, Tyrone, Worthville, Irvine
and, Frankfort of Green I^iver at Mc~
Kinney of Dlx RiVer at Silver Springs
and of Salt River at Salv.isa,
The work is carried 011 according to
the standard methods adonted by the
geological survey and the chemical pro
fession generally throughout the'coun
try. and is under the immediate charge
of Mr. M. Q. Leighton, hydrographer
in charge pf the, hydro-economic sec

IRRIGATION IN SACRAMENTO.
An appropriation of $60,000 made by
the California legislature last winter for
the development of irrigation in the
state, the greater part of which is being
expended by the United States geologi
cal survey, has served to exploit greatly
the latent capacity of the state for devel
oping irrigation,' as well as to emphasize
the urgent need of definite policies for
future work along similar lines.
The topographic and hydrographic
branches of the survey haVe together
undertaken tlie mapping of the irri
gable lands of the Sacrathento Valley,
an are pushing the Work vigorously.
During the coming winter there will
be surveyed at kast four 15-fttmutt
quadrangles on a scale of one mile to
the inch with contour intervals of fiye
feet. It is the ftitention, if feasible, to
complete thf survey of" the Sacra
mento Valtey on this scale from this
appropriation. Other topographic work
is being carrild on simultaneously in
the drainage basin of Kings River
