Virginia and Trite Sun Big Loss by Fire In Gold Hill Tunnel In order to afford relief for the water users of Western Nevada, who are now dependent upon Lake Tahoe storage, and to make possible the irrigation of at least 50.000 additional acres of land in this section of the state, Governor Boyle and State Engineer Scrugham have proposed to the irrigation service and peacock blue abound in the debu the construction of a large storage res- storage of flood waters of the Truckee- river that are now going to waste each spring and winter. It is estimated that such a reservoir and its main canal system can be built for approximately $2,000,000, one- half of which cost, it is proposed, shall be advanced by the state of Nevada and the remainder by the federal govern ment, all of which would ultimately be repaid by the present users and new settlers upon future reclaimed land. The irrigation service has already in dicated a favorable attitude toward the project but has not yet given definite assurances as to the amount of money- Fire this morning in the Jacket tun- j nel just this side of Gold Hill and a mile and a half out of Virginia City stopped traffic at that end of the road and caused a big financial loss to the Virginia and Truckee railway. The fire, which started near one of the portals, was discovered about 4 o'clock this morning after it had been burning some time. An alarm was im mediately given and firemen and ap paratus from both Gold Hill and Vir ginia City, together with railroad em ployees, responded at once and fought like demons to quench the flames, which aided by the draft that had been creat ed made a fiery furnace of the tunnel. At 6 o'clock it was reported that the flames were practically under control, but later reports said the fire had gain ed new headway and at noon it was stated it was again burning fiercely. The tunnel, 500 feet long, will be a wreck so far as the timbers are con cerned and a number of caves from the roof developed as that the government would advance in co-operation with the state. Two sites for such a storage reser voir are being considered and have been given preliminary examination, Lemmon valley, directly north of Reno, and Spanish Springs valley, lying north of Sparks, both of which are capable of large storage. Lemmon valley, according to Engin eer Scrugham, is capable of several times the storage capacity of Spanish Springs valley, but as the latter, if dammed, would contain at least 500,000 acre feet of water and could be con verted into a reservoir at a much less cost than the former, it is believed to be the bettec- selection. Engineer Scrug ham left this afternoon for Spanish Springs valley to continue a recon noissance of the site there. Later a complete survey of both sites will be made which will be participated in by L. II. Taylor of Reno and B. G. Mc Bride of Elko, who will assist the state in the matter. Reno Gazette.

It was last used for traffic by the train which arrived here at 5:30 last evening and at that time there were no evidences of smoke or anything else that would indicate fire. It will probably take 200,000 feet of lumber to rebuild the tunnel, railroad officials said this morning, and an or der for the timber has already been sent out. The work of cleaning the tunnel of burnt timbers and debris will begin as soon as the fire exhausts itself, but with the best of luck it cannot be re moved, it is believed, within a week. As a result of the fire no trains will be able to enter Virginia City for a number of days, but means for trans ferring passengers and freight will be arranged so that the public will not be put to any great inconvenience.

Evening wocice, snouiacr straps, ana over tne gowns of the fall and winter season seem to promise more scope for indi viduality than the street and afternoon dresses which so dogmatically declare that slinkiness is absolutely the only silhoutte. It is true that the swathed effect takes title role even in evening gowns, but there are a few exceptions. The very top-notch evening gown the sort that would be worn at a Blue Bird ball, if such a social event should happen all over again, is merely a very few yards of shiny material bound round and round the figure. Such a model of jet over a fitted un- derslip of black satin is the piece dc way, nearly hlhng the tunnel in var ious places with large amounts of de bris. What the loss will amount to General Manager Ardery was unable to estimate this morning. This is the second fire that has oc curred in the same tunnel, a former one happening in June. 1903. A heavy loss occurred at that time and it was a couple of weeks before it could be put back in shape for use.
