SECURE CASH FOR BIG PROJECT.
ladkin of Loot River Interjeta Jub Umt Over the Good Proepecte— W. H. Phllbrlck Say« French Cap» Ital Will be Forthcoming. The promoters of the Lost River project are beginning to see daylight and the future locke a good deal brighter for both the company and the settlers as well as for the back ers, according to W. H. Philbrick of American Palls, big sheepman, heavy holder of Irrigation interests and member of the last legislature. Mr. Philbrick traveled over the Lost River project last week and the week before and is thoroughly conver saint with existing conditions there. He stated that Mr. Niver of the Trowbridge & Niver Bonding com pany of Chicago has succeeded in in teresting heavy French capital in the project and that everything looks lovely as far as negotation® have proceeded across the water. It is believed that if this French capital decided to go into the invest ment the Lost river projects success is assured. The greatest difficulty that has been encountered is the apathy in the irrigation bend market and various troubles have been ex perienced by the promoters since Trowbridge-Niver suffered .reverses on their Colorado project last year. Mr. Philbrick Is confident that If sufficient mcmey is secured to put the project through everybody con nected with it will be in the clear. Asked what seemed to be the main trouble with the Mackaiy dam, Mr. Philbrick said he thought that a mis take was made in the start regarding the location. Instead of going down the river aboil^ a mile - and a half farther, where deep rock foundations could be made, the dam was built in a great gravel bed, he said. In dumping the carloads of gravel over in making the dam the power of gravity tended to draw the larger bowlders and rocks to the bottom, while the finer stuff stayed on top, he said. Because of this the water seeps through as cleaT as though it were from a spring. The filtering dees not necessarily mean that the dam will ever weaken, of course, and there is no special danger of the structure going out, but Mr. Philbrick thinks that it may be necessary to build another dam, or else the present stru cture will have to be improved by so lidifying the surface rock with alluvia soil. Mr. Philbrick said he drew a valu able suggestion in this connection from an experience he had i.u Colo rado on the great Arkansas river dam where the same problem came up Solution was arrived at finally by go ing up the river several miles to a heavy clay bank, where flat boats were loaded with clay and then run down stream and dumped at the' dam The clay was pressed up tightly by the water pressure to the dam wall and in a short time it became as solid and hard as concrete and made a perfect retainer, so that not a drop could get through. "That is ai wonderful project," said Mr. Philbrick, "and when, it is put through and is on ai working basis, Idaho will be proud cf it. I think that the agitation caused by the fears of the Mackay residents that the dam might go out has done considerable harm, but I believe matters will rap idly straighten themselves out. "There is just as good land there as in any other place in the state. The season is fairly long and as far up as Arco 1 have seen fine crops of apples. Thy suffer little danger from frost. The soil is wonderfully rich and is mixed with that famous lava ash which produces Idaho's greatest crop in all lines.'" Obstructing Progress. In some parts of the country there seems to be an inordinate desire with a certain class of public officials to prevent the extension of the Telepost system of automatic telegraphy, which in pursuance of its policy of national expansion plans to connect as soon as feasible its lines from Chi cago and Omaha, westward to cities and towns to. Idaho. It. is difficult to conceive on what grounds a public servant who has an honest regard for the welfare of his constituents can lend himself to a plan designed to exclude this well ap proved system from any state, city or townsite it aspires to enter. If those who are shaping Its destvry recognize a public demand for its service and are willing to supply it, why interpose an objection to its extension. All the company asks of the public is a right of way, which means the right to do business, for the public benefit, a right to which every legitimate American enterprise is entitled. The Telepost wants no subsidy and is not a petitioner for financial assistance from any state or municipal body. Its plans con template no abridgement or encroa chment upon any right enjoyed by any community from Maine to Cali fornla. There is no more reason "Why we should restrict the telegraph busi ness of this state to two telegraph companies—who are nominally one—^ than we should put an embargo on more than two railroads, or on two public service Institutions of any kind, whose function will add to the comfort, convenience and economic advantage of the people. The Telepcst offers to transmit telegraph messages from the Atlan tic to the Pacific at a maximum rate of one cent and a minimum rate of one quarter of oine cent a word, re gardless of time or distance. Surely this is no reason why it should be debarred from competing for busi ness with the monoply. The Tele post sends over its wires messages at a speed of 2000 words a minute, as againstt he 20 to 25 ■words a min ute cf its high priced rivals. This may be a legitimate objection to the monopoly which is lumbering along in the same old way it did in the day of Morse butin the capacity for use ful service which it reveals there Is an appeal tot popular support which j no legislator, however Indifferent, he may be to the interests of his con stituency can afford to ignore. Lower telegraph rates and a more efficient service have long been de manded in this country. If the Tele post can meet this nation wide de mand it certainly should be encou raged to do so Sullivan Gives Annual Feed New York, Dec. 25.—On the bow ery today State Senator (Big Tim) Sullivan fed 5090 derelicts and unfor tunates to the rooms of the Timothy D.
