The remarkable unanimity displayed throaghtoui the upper j-cninsula upon the Osborn candidacy serves us the best possible illustration of the fitness of the man for the high offk'e of chief executive of the state, comments the Soo N ws. No man active, ns has been Chase tisborn, could possibly rally to j his standard practically every leading republican of his district, if his quali fications for a position of public trust were not so striking as to practically compel sui port. There may have been 'in Michigan affairs some individual whose home support has approached in solidity that given Chase tisborn. but we feel sure that investigation of such an instance will disclose that the individual, prior to his entry Into the political arena, had been Inactive in the discharge of his political duties. Quite the reverse is true of the present ease. l!ut few men in Michigan have been m re active or more prominent in state affairs than Chase tisborn dur- ir.g the past fifteen years, and yet in spite of this fact, the announcement of his candidacy is hailed among the peo ple among whom he has been most ac tive with pleasure and with assurances of united support. Another peculiar and distinctively gratifying feature of the situation is the disinterestedness of tills support. Although practically every newspaper, every h gislafr and every political leader in the district has declared his loyalty to the Osborn cause, not one has be n prompted to this through h"pc of political reward. Support thu-, tendered constitutes a compliment t" Mr. Osborn rarely met with in prac tical politics. The influence of the united support of the district for Osborn upon the fortunes of the contest in the lower peninsula will be inestimable. M. n everywlore are jowcrfully influent- 1 by the estimate of a candidate form by the men who know him best. : in tins ease, conclusions nrrive.i at in this fashion relative to the bsborn inndidicy cannot escape being favor able. Hut the unanimous support of the l a.b rs of the party in the district wh.le gratifying and most significant should not conspire to any false sen or security concerning the majority which the upj.tr peninsula will give ("has.. isborn. The percentage of en rolled voters in thk district Is lower than n ;-ny other district in the state and the first big victory of the tisborn ramjaign must bo tichlcved In 'April next, when the final enrollment is made for the s-ptcmb-r primary. For the complete enrollment of the party strength in April, the Osborn forces in the uppr peninsula must from now on b nd every energy. if " , ' h i - V v -jLv T-'---!i M I f L &lrV$s?Zz?lJ- I'll ?5.'v'v-i;-', V -.. -rvi' xvvs-.

With the recent coiiiT'htion of the work of filling in th owl crook runway, the government's irreat ?3.:.(iit,ti'ii) Irrii-vi- tion dam near here la-eann- an unbrok- u rampart of earth and ceno nt, ii.COO feet long, 115 feet high at the central points, and cupabl of hemming in an rtlfit ial lake seven inil s sipiare and HO feet in depth. The storage reservoir will Irrigate next season sme lOO.tifio acres of land and eventually It will re claim an una of from I'.o.moo to 2T,0, 000 acres. Hayes Itroth rs & Fetors, the Janes, vlllo, Wis., contracting firm that built the Chit ago drainage canal power plant at Lock port and took over the under taking March 1D0S. found the Owl creek, the most dangerous and difficult of all the problems that confronted them. This stream, n branch of the Chey enne, runs 1,000 feet of water n second under ordinary conditions nnd in times of heavy rainfall the fresh t plough deep and wide through the gumbo s". It was necessary nt the very outset to build a Hume capable of carrying 6.00a' feet of water a second, but even that would not have taken care of tho crtej; The danger of aomp Puch untoward happening was so gnat that' from th- r.th day of August, when the work of filling was commenced 103 feet below the temporary bridge, until the gai was closed on October 27, the government required that a photograph be taken each dav and forwarded to Washington, ns well as a telegram detailing- the exact status of the ojicr utions. The creek had to be excavated to b d rock. It was necessary to put In three cross trenches and the back fill ing for quite a distance uj hail to be tamped by hand under, the strictest government scrunity. After that the filling had to be moistened and spread nnd rolled In si '-Inch layers. As It vvns nesessary to go l,r.00 feet beyond the end of the dam to get the greater part of the material, the n vera go haul for steam shovels was about 4.T.0O feet. Three, hundred mt n worked sitli 300 head of horses and mules, t ight loco motives nnd SO ears, three graders and two atcam shovels, and not a man was Injured during the entire operation. Chief Engineer Davis, representing the government, has characterized this fill ns the boldest piece of work of the kind ever carried out by the United States government. Over six hundred feet wide at Its oise, nnd 2."i feet wide at Its npex, the gnat dam runs north and south, and its western ulojn will eventually be completely armored against wave wash by a solid face of r'j by C'i foot con crete . blocks, weighing 3,000 pounds each and laid on a strata of gravel two feet dcti. The lower ed.'To of this face of blocks rests against a concrete wall which has been, reinforced by piling with M-Inch centers, driven 16 f,eet Into the earth. F.efore being put In place every one of these blocks will have been watt red anil "cured" for 00 days. For times of emergency nn Immense concrete Slllway has ben built through the northerly end of the tnm part Ht a cost of $100,000. It will di vert into the old bed -of Owl creek a mile b.low' the dam. For Irrigation purposes, there are two large conduits one at ,-ach end. with gates which open from the tt.. The nellefourche river will be relied upon to furnish most of the water for the gnat basin. Eight miles above the big wall are located the controlling works and diversion dam, with lis gates, which will be ca llable of turning the stream awav from the basin on a moment's notice. It is one of the largest irrigation pro jects thnt has been undertaken by the government,, nnd there Is still about one years work to be done.
