On Monday evening the matter was brought before the council in order that a right of way be granted to the Short Line to put in a spur to the elevator.

Will be used for Salmon River Dam. A contract for 65,000 barrels of ce ment, which will cost approximately 8260.000 and which will be used in the construction of the big dam to be built in the Salmon river about 30 miles south of Twin Falls, was let today to C. R. Shaw by D. C. MaeWatters of Milner the general manager of Twin Falls Salmon River Land & Whiter company which has charge of the Salmon river project. The contract, which is the largest ce ment contract ever let in connection with irrigation enterprises, is also the largest ever closed between a wholesale dealer and a company within thehis'ory and growth of irrigation. To fill the contract will require 16 trains of 23 cars each, the total mass aggregating 2.700.000 pounds. Shipments of cement according to the contract will commence iu a short time from Devils Slide, Utah to Twin Falls, from which place the barrels of cement will be freighted across the 30 miles intervening between that place and the site of the dam on Salmon river. Witb'Tne closing of this big contract assurance beyond a doubt is given that the eleetric line now building from Milner to Gooding will be extended through the Salmon river country to connect with "the Southern Pacific at Wells Nevada. The cement called for by the contract will be a small part of the cost of the dam, but the cement alone will cost about 8260,000. The dam which will be 210 feet high and will form a reser voir for waters of the Salmon river of about 600,000 acre feet, it is estimated will cost 81,000.000, and will be con strueted of solid masonry, with the con crete contracted for bv the company, in addition to the masonary work on the dam there will be about a quarter of a million spent in the construction of tunnels leading from the dam to the canal from which the water will he ob tained to irrigate the lands under the ptoject. The contract closed this morning gives assurance that the dam will he built as rapidly as possible and that the project will be eonsumated. Mr. Shaw, who was successful in landing the big contract, stated that be has been over the land under the pro yect and that it is about the finest laud in the state, being much [the same as 21 that in the Twin Falls about the same elevation, that on the tract in i about 150,000 acres < tract and on He said which there are if line land, ought I to make homes for at least 25,000 peo Ol'c within five year.-, in the towns that I will be started by the company. He I stated that there is only a small body of ! land intervening between the tract and 1 the Southern Pacifie rahroad in Ne vada and that assurance is giving with the closing of the contract that the electric road will he extended from Gooding through the Salmon tract to the Nevada line and from theuca on through to Wells where it will connect with the railroad. river ''What Boise now wants to do," said Mr. Shaw, is to make a viperous effort to have this line extended to Boise, which will thus be given another trans continental railroad into the city and thus provide us with competition, would mean greatly reduced freight rates and better service." With the first shipments of Union Portland cement from Devils Slide to Twin Falls great activity will be com menced and will he in progress all sum mer in the Salmon river country. The hauling of the cement from Twin Falls to the site of the dam bids fair to be one of the important items in connec tion with the contract for supplying the company with this amount of building material. The cement to haul, which will require about 325 cars, will when it arrives at Twin Falls, require four ti nes as many wagon loads before it will be deposited at its destination, the sight ox the big dam. Labor will he in demand, teams will be in demand and wagons in which to haul the cement will be necessitated. The company will have about 2,000 men at work dur ing the coming summer, some being em ployed in the construction of the rail road, others employed mi the dam and still others employed platting new towns for the Salmon river tract and preparing to take care of the settlers who will make tlieir advent into the country on June 1, when the first big opening of 80,000 acres in this tract will be held by the company at Twin Falls.
