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

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.

tion will be started. 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. The

NEW YORK, Aug. 13. 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

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.

not been determined, but an investiga-
