The Congressional Committee Reperta
1B Favor of (Jovernmeatal Aetln
in the Matter.
Three Methods of Artificial Storage
and Distribution of Water
Outlined.
Recommendations That Appropria­
tions Be Made to Investigate
Their Feasibility.
WASHINGTON, May 13.—The majority
report of the committee on irrigation
jives the climatic conditions of various
states and territories that are in need of
irrigation, and upon these conditions
make their recommendations. In its
entire trip the committee traveled 14,000
miles and examined 382 witnesses. In
Dakota the committee visited Huron,
Redfield, Aberdeen and Jamestown,
examining the famous artesian wells at
Huron and the points named, while also
taking evidence at Jamestown and Bis­
marck.
The findings of the committee, so far
as the Dakotas are concerned, are
trammed up in the following:
The entire area of the two Dakota
states is 06,596,480 acres. Of this total
at least 50,000,000 acres may be consid­
ered as within the arid region, having
annual rainfall not to exceed 15 inches.
North Dakota wiJl average about 18
inches of precipitation per annum.
West of the Missouri river there is
little reason to e^jpect that any system of
reclamation will be of avail other than
by storage reservoirs, running streams
and a large system of main canals and
distributories, taking water from the
Missouri river as far north as the forty
sixth degree of latitude and conducting
it southward, using the numerous tribu­
taries of the basin as both contributory
and distributing agents, until the system,
thus reinforced from hydrographic basin
to basin, may be carried soutmvard far
enough to serve Western Nebraska and
Kansas.
But it is in its remarkable basin or
basins of artesian water that the Dako­
tas, especially South Dakota, are most to
be considered in relation to agricultural
security and as possibly a permanent re­
lief at least from partial aridity. The
central and northeastern section of
South Dakota and the central portion of
North Dakota present a large area of
shallow lakes and lagoons which an ac­
curate survey will probably show to be
avilable, with proper engineering work,
as a series of small reservoirs or drain­
age storage basins. These and their out­
lets must be diverted for agricultural
use.
The artesian belt of the James river
valley, or rather of its entire hydro
graphic basin, is the largest water body
of its character known to the world.
The area embraced is at least fifty miles
in average width. It contains about
7,000,000 acres, of which 98 per cent
could be made available for tillage.
From Jamestown to Yankton there are
now about fifty artesian town wells in
operation, striking water at a depth that
ranges from 1,577 feet in Jamestown to
610 and 600 at Yankton and Frankfort.
There are in all nearly or quite 100 flow
wells on farms. The remarkable fea­
tures of this belt of artesian water are
its quantity, force and continuance.
The pressure of the principal wells is
from 25 pounds at Highniore to 171) at
Yankton. The flow of water ranges per
minute from 4,000 gallons at Columbia,
3,500 at Aberdeen. 1,300- at Yankton,
down to 14 at Higlmiore.
The extent of the Dakota well basin is
as yet unknown. The facts given tend
to prove that the flow increases, not di­
minishes, as is generally feared of arte­
sian belts.
Opinion was unanimous in the two
Dakotas in support of a liberal appropri­
ation for an irrigation survey, and the
demand was made on all sides that the
general government should appropriate
also a sum of money sufficient to defray
the expenses of rapid geologic and liv
drographic reconnoissances by which the
three forms of developing a water sup­
ply already named might be fairly out­
lined and located in connection with the
physical features of the Dakotas. The
appeal
is, in the committee's judgment,
a
reasonable one, especially view of
Caci tkat there remains at least 21,000,
400 acres more of public land still open
to settlement.
Evidence v. as given showing how in a
few ijibtance# the overflow of wells irri­
gated tracts of grain, and that such
tracts furnished abundant crops while
•ther fields were blighted. It was
stated that the rise in tho value of land
if water security prevailed would be
from «10 to ljr40 per acre. The president
•f the agricultural college at Brookings
estimated the immediate rise in the
James river valley alone at $20 per acre.
Still the people are, as pioneers, too poor
as yet to undertake the work of defining
and indicating ths hydrogrnphic sup­
plies and the most profitable manner of
using and storing them. This once
done by the general government, as they
claim should be the case, there would be
no difficulty, it is declared ol' obtaining
all the capital needed for the work of
development and construction. The
committee agrees with thin view.

ALBANY, V. Y., May 13.—The defal
eatien ef Bookkeeper Whitney, of the
Albany City bank, now thought to
reach $100,WC0. The bank is prepared to
meet a ruu, other banks having offered
it plenty of aid, iu case of need. It is
stated that several members of firms
through which Whitney speculated will
be arrested, and also that a prominent
business man has paid the bank $10,000
to cover worthless paper that his sou
had made in collusion with Whitney.

HANGINQ TOO GOOD FOR THMFI.
Malae Far«nU Tortur* Their Childr«a la
the Most Horrible Miaur laiafiaahl*.
BANGOR,
Me., May
18.—A
case of child-torture is reported from
Old Town, a dozen miles up the river,
Fred Sawyer and wife, with two little
daughters, eight and ten years, live in
little white frame house on the outskirts
of Old Town village. Sawyer himself is
not regarded as a particularly vicious
man, but his wife is a veritable fiend. It
has long been known by the neighbors
that the little girls were not well treat*
ed, but last week it was learned that
they were subjected almost daily to
shocking abuse, the eldest, Myrtie, being
especially maltreated. Several persons
declared that they had seen the step­
mother take Myrtie by the hair, pull it
from the head in handfulls and then
throw her violently to the ground, while
others have seen the unnatural woman
strike the child across the face with
a club with such force ae to make
her unconscions. Saturday night a
mob surrounded the Sawyers' house,
with the expectation of capturing
him and his wife. They were too
late. The couple, having got wind of
what was going on, skipped from Ban­
gor, leaving the children behind. The
oldest child presented a pitiful appear­
ance, her frail little body being covered
with cuts, sores and bruises from head
to foot. Her left wrist was broken and
her arm fractured, while the bridge of
her nose was smashed in as though by a
blow from a club. It was found that
her wrist and arm had been broken six
weeks before by the step-mother throw­
ing the child heavily to the ground and
then kicking her. No attention was paid
to the child's sufferings, the savage step­
mother threatening her with instant
death if she did not stop crying and,
moreover, the helpless victim was told
that she would certainly be killed if she
complained to anyone of her treatment.
Not content with this, the tigress act­
ually sank her teeth repeatedly into the
arms and body of the victim. The girl's
clothing.became glued to her flesh with
clots of blood, and the physician who
called was obliged to use warm water
to remove her garments.
BVERYTHIN& ¥RUINS.
OIL CITY, Pa., May 13.—A destructive
cloud burst and cyclone struck this sec­
tion about lip. in., Saturday. Houses,
barns, bridges, oil-well rigs and gas
pipes are in ruins. At East Sandy,
about eight miles from here, the resi­
dence of William Nunnemaker was
blown down, burying the entire family
in the ruins. Mr. and Mrs. Nunnemaker
are seriously injured and their two
children will die of their injuries. Mr.
and Mrs. Noah Jackson were buried in
the ruins of their residence and were
Taken Out J)e ul
and badly mangled. The residences of
Thomas Starr and William Lambert
son were destroyed. The valley rail­
road also suffered severely. Freight
train No. 08 struck landslide at Hull's
siding, throwing eighteen flat cars iu the
ditch. Three hundred feet of track
were washed out at Astral, and smaller
portions at Brandon. All mails were
delayed twenty hours.
ANOTHER FATAL CYCLONE.
Several People Killed ami Much Property
Destroyed in Wilson County, Missouri.
CHANUTE. Kan., May 13.—A cyclone
struck Cedar Valley. Wilson county, at
4 p. in. Joseph Wiltsey's house was
demolished, his youngest son killed, and
two other children injured. Next the
dwelling of Frank Glidden was de­
stroyed, his wife killed, and two child­
ren injured. The dwellings of Peter
Pierson, Aleck Russell and the Widow
Starr were leveled to the ground, and
Mr. Pierson and wife so badly injured
that they are not expected to survive. A
scantling was driven completely through
the body of Mr. Starr. He is still alive,
but will die. The wife and babe of the
Rev. J. R. Chambers were blown in dif­
ferent directions out of a buggy. A
second blast picked the mother up and
deposited her alongside the child.
Widespread and Disastroas.
ST LOUIS, May 13.—Reports from dif­
ferent parts of North Missouri state that
a large amount of property has been de­
stroyed and several persons killed by the
violent storms of the past two days. In
Harrison county the house of William
Wilson was blown away, Wilson and his
two children killed and several persons
iujured. Twenty buildings were de­
stroyed in Gentry county and Mrs. N.
Green was killed. Near Memphis, Mo.,
six dwellings wers blown down, but no­
body was killed or seriously injured.
AKRON, OHIO, VISITED.
A Bud Toi-uadn Teurtt Up Thing* In

Wrocked.
AKRON, Ohio, May 13.—At 5:30 p. m.,
in the midst of a most terrific cloud­
burst, this city was struck by the worst
tornado, beyond comparison, which has
ever been known hereabouts, excepting
perhaps the Sharon cyclone of just a
month ago. The storm struck the south­
ern part of the city doing dauvige which
cannot be estimated at this writing, but
fully 100 buildings are completely de­
molished. Hundreds more are badly
damaged and a stretch two miles long
is razed of trees and buildings of all
sorts. A number of persons were in­
jured, some of whom may die.
A SUNDAY BLAZE.

BRADFORD, Pa., May 13.—Fifteen two-
story frame business houses ef the vil­
lage of Ellicottville, N. Y., were de­
stroyed by fire Sunday afternoon. The
village has no fire department and as­
sistance was given them from Salamanca
and Bradford. The loss is about
§10,000.

MINNEAPOLIS, May 14.—Farm, Stock
and Home, an agricultural paper of this
city, is in receipt of on unofficial report
from one of the committee recently sent
East to reinvestigate the subject of man­
ufacturing binding twine at the state
prison. It will be remembered that R.
J. Hall, president of the state Farmers'
Alliance, recently asserted that a plant
capable of making 2,500 pounds of twine
daily could be placed in the prison for
less than $20,000, that there was plenty
of room and power there for the accom­
modation and operation, and an abund­
ance of labor sufficiently intelligent and
skillful to perform the necessary manual
labor. This claim differed so radically
from the report of the commissioners
appointed by the governor last summer,
which was that it would require from
$1,000,000 to $2,000,000 to erect the plant,
and it would then be a question whether
the state could furnish the twine at lower
prices than private manufacturers were
doing it. The new committee has now
been East some two weeks, and a letter
from one of its members, written at
Paterson, N. J., is the first news received
from it. The writer states that the
committee has visited the plant at
Paterson and watched the process of
manufacture from beginning to finish,
and has been fully acquainted with cost
of plant, etc. A ball of twine made in
the presence of the committee is sent
also. The letter concludes: The tow of
which this twine is made cost, at Patter­
son, 4 cents, and it can be manufactured
into twine for 1 cents, so it might be
furnished at Stillwater at a cost not to
exceed 0 cents a pound. Freight to any
part of Minnesota or Dakota of 1 cent
makes it not more than 7 cents. The
sample sent runs about 500 feet to the
pound, bilt it is considerably heavier
than is necessary.
DOESN'T WANT OFFICE.
Governor Mellette Says lie Is Not a Can­
didate for Ke-Klection.
CHICAGO, May 14.—Gov. A. C. Mell­
ette of South Dakota has left for his ex­
ecutive mansion. His errand in Chicago
was of a purely private business.
"South Dakota is looking well," he
said, "the recent abundant rain proving
of immense value. Politically the state
is at present quiet, though next fall we
are to elect a full state ticket, congress­
man and a United States Sen­
ator. The complexion of the ticket
I am unable to give, as no
candidate has yet put in an appear­
ance. Myself? I am not a candidate
and I do not imagine I shall be elected.
The only certainty about the campaign
is that it will result in a Republican vic­
tory. I doubt the probability of prohibi­
tion cutting any figure in the campaign.
It is in the conststution and is, I think,
settled, although we cannot judge
whether the supreme court decision will
destroy its effect."
ESCAPED FROM THE PEN.
Douglas, the Minneapolis llank Thief,
Skips From Stillwater Prison.
STILLWATER Minn., May 14.—Fred
Douglas effected his escape from the
prison here during the noon hour. He
was locked up with the other prisoners
at dinner time, At 1 o'clock when the
most of his squad under Guard Rhoads,
of the machine shop (up stairs), was
taken up Douglas lagged, though his
absence was discovered by Mr. Rhoads
ten minutes later and the alarm given,
It was not supposed until about 3:30 that
Douglas was outside the walls, a thor­
ough search of all the possible hiding
places within the yard going on in the
meantime. At length Warden Randall
found a pair of convict's panta­
loons just on the inside of the most
northerly gate on the east side of the
wall, and further investigation showed
the marks of Douglas' descent on the
street side of the gate. He had stolen
the clothes from one of the lockers nsed
by citizen laborers and had scaled the
wall at the gate, which had been boarded
lp nearly to the top, not having been
used for some time. The space through
which he crawled is not over seven
inches. Douglas and a pal named John
Henry held up the cashier of a Minneap­
olis bank and committed a heavy rob­
bery. for which he was given fifteen
years, most of which term remaius un­
served.
SETTLERS ARE SCARED.
Many Protests Against the Abandonment

MANDA.V, N. D., May 14.—A largely
attended meeting of citizens protested
against the proposed abandonment of
Fort Abraham Lincoln. A number of
farmers living south of town said they
settled there because of government pro­
tection, and if this was withdrawn they
would be compelled to abandon their
farms. Strong resolutions were adopted
expressing alarm at the disposition of
the war department to abaadoN the fort,
with thousands of hestile Indians within
a day's journey of it. Reports are to
hand of similar meetings in the country,
and great alarm is manifested.

STATE SUMMARY.
Paragraphs of Interest Gath­
ered from North Dakota
Newspapers.
A story has recently been going the
rounds inMandan that in one of the hotels
a guest got hold of the kerosene instead of
the water faucet, and gave his hands,
face and hair good bath in tho oil be­
fore he discovered his mistako. Ho has
probnbly realized ore this that kerosene
is not water, and although there may be
a slight resemblance between the two.
An Aberdeen minister recently preach*
ed a sermon on "The biggest liar in
town," and it is reported that the lawyer
and newspaper men made themselves
conspicuous by their absence. Accord­
ing to the Mandan Pioneer Father Per
raultof th it place qayB he would dis­
course on the same subject, but there
are no liarB in his parish.
A. C. McGilhvry, of the Dickinson
coal company, says that 1,000 cars of
the celebrated Lehigh lignite will be
shipped into eastern and southern Da­
kota next season. He is already receiv­
ing orders.
Hillsboro Banner: Land throughout
Traill county will be assessed this year
on an average of 87 per acre. Accord­
ing to this basis our total assessed valu­
ation will be about 83,717,000, or an in­
crease of nearly a half million dollars.
Traill county has in round rumbers,
561,000 acres of land, but 30,000 belongs
to the school fund, thus reducing tho
taxable area to 531,000 acres. It is inter­
esting to note that according to this
year's valuation the school lands are
worth .$210,000.
The Salvation army and the "tough
element" of Mitchell, South Dakota, are
disturbing the peace of the city and the
Republican calls for the suppression of
both.
Hope Pioneer: The county commis­
sioners, at their session last Saturday,
authorized the paying by the county of
the following bounty on gophers: Three
cents during tho month of May, two
cents during June, and one and one-half
cent6 dimng July. The scalps of the go­
phers, including the ears, are to be taken
as evidence of the killing.
North Dakota having made no arrange­
ments for paying the tuition of her
pupils in the deaf mute school at Sioux
Falls, by order of the trustees the pupils
of tbat state now in attendance will be
sent home. They are thirteen in num­
ber and their departure will reduce the
enrollment of the school to thirty-four.
A peculiar shaped mound was discov­
ered near Mitchell, South Dakota, the
other day, and in digging into it the
skeleton of an Indian was unearthed,
with the trinkets and weapons usually
found in Indian graves. The mound was
covered by heavy sod and everything in­
dicated that many years had elapsed
since it was made.
The gopher was the subject of discus­
sion in the house of commons the other,
day. One honorable gentleman, an ex
imnister of war, asked if a gopher was a
grasshopper. Having been informed on
this point, auother honorable gentleman
made tho suggestion that the reason why
gophers were so plentiful in the north­
west last summer was because they had
been starved out of Dakota. But the
minister of the interior made the best
point of all when he said that 810,000
would be voted to buy traps for them.—
