H. E. Cover Here in the Interests of
His Steamboat Company
H. E. Cover, the gentleman who
was here some weeks ago looking
up the steamboat line, is here again
today and says it will only be a
short time till the boats will be
running. He is here for the pur
pose of arranging for a landing.
He has been all over the river front
on this side and found one or two
places that suited him, if they can
be secured. His line of boats will
run north as far a< White Bluffs
and east up the Snake river as far
as the business will justify and
south as far as The Dalles. It is
the intention of the company to
erect a warehouse and coal bunkers
as soon as the lauding places are
decided upon.
Concert and Ball at Pasco.
The band concert and ball given
by the Kennewick brass band in
Pasco will be remembered by all
who took part in it as one of the
most successful and enjoyable af
fairs of the kind in the history of
the twin cities. The hall which is
one of the best ball rooms in the
country was comfortably filled with
citizens of both places, and the eve
ning was enjoyed from start to fin
The band gave aii open air con
cert on the streets for an hour before
going to the hall where they gave
a concert consisting of selections
by the band and solos, duets and
quartetts by the various members.
After the concert the floor manager
took charge of the hall and started
the ball. As is usual Pasco turned
out en masse and gave the people
from this side of the creek a hearty

Health in Irrigation Districts.
The question is frequently
by eastern people who are unfamil
iar with conditions in the irrigated
sections of the west if tne health of
the communities is rot affected by
the numerous water ditches. Others
are anxious to know if rheumatism
is not prevalent, or whether a
rheumatic tendency is not aggra
vated by a residence in an irrigated
country. It can be stated as a fact,
susceptible of proof, that irrigation
causes neither malarhl disease nor
rheumatism. Nor are those who
are subject to rheumatism more
likely to suffer from the affliction
in the iwigated than in the non-ir
rigated districts. It is true how
ever, that in one locality \\ here ir
rigation is extensively carried on
there was an epidemic of typhoid
fever. The cause was found and
removed and the health of the com
munity permanently restored. There
are only two causes for such a con
dition, and neither of them is prop
erly chargeable to irrigation, as!
such. One is poor drainage in the!
cities; the other, an unnecessary
and almost criminal w.iste of watei
because it is cheap. Tlis drainage
leans 3 has in many instances been
removed, and may in all, by intel
igent sanitary regulation and tlie
application of engineering skill
which it is not difficult to secure.
The over-in igation cause will be
removed when those who have un
limited quantities of water at their
disposal learn that its excessive
use is worse than wasting it; that
by using too much water they not
only retard growth and induce
short crops but create stagnant
pools which are sure to breed dis
ease in any country. Experienced
irrigation is is have learned that the
use of too much water is almost as
fatal to successful production as
too little. In sections where water
is comparatively scarce and expen
sive the best results have been ob
tained, with no malaria. This is
not because the land is any richer
in one place than the other, but be
cause necessity has demonstrated
the value in dollars and cents of
economy in the use of water. In
these districts the 'people are just as
healthy as those who reside on the
table lands.— Homeseeker.
Thanks to Pasco.
The band boys request us to
publich- thank the people ot Pasco
for the handsome treatment received
at their hands at the entertainment
in their city last week. It is
the intention of the management of
the band to make numerous visits
to Pasco during the summer, and
will in every way endeavor to sfiow
their appreciation of the courtesies
shown them last week.
