Pumping Projects Held Up By the
Reclamation Bureau.
Washington, I). C., March 20 —
Director Walcott of the geological
survey today laid before Secretary
Hitchcock a plan for the early
completion of the Minedoka irri
gation project in Idaho. The pro
posed plan sets aside $1,500,000 as
a reclamation fund for work on the
Boise-Payette project, also in
Idaho. It is believed that the
plan will receive the approval of
the secretary, because the govern
ment has for the present abandoned
immediate construction work on!
projects requiring pumping facili-!
ties, and A'ill take up and continue
work only on these lauds that can
be reclaimed by a gravity irriga
tion system. ' Government reclarn-i
ation experts claim that projects
necessitating pumping ueed con
siderable more study; that at best
the results are problematical, and
in view of this situation they
should be held up for the present.
Dr. Newell, chief engineer of the
reclamation service, is directly re
sponsible for this new policy with
respect to irrigation projects now
under way and in contemplation.
Work on the Briilae.
The engineers have been en
gaged for the past week making
the surveys for the grades on each
side of the bridge. It is expected
the work on the building of the em
bankments will start in the near
future so they will be ready for the
rails when the bridge is moved. It
is the plan of the company to build
a temporary underpining to the
west of the present site and move
I the superstructure of the present
bridge to it, to be used till the new
j bridge is completed. The work of
i moving will start as soon as the
! water in the river begins to recede.
