Twin Falls, say delegates who have r< turned from there. Old established theories went into the discard, when Mr. Crandall refut ed the belief that tho U g and Kittle Lost rivers and other sunken streams in the Waste lands south of the Saw tooth mountains were the entire or even the main sources of supply for the Thousand Springs, Crystal Lakes, Blue Kakes and other springs along the north wall of the Snake river. Careful tests by Mr. Crandall indi cat«' th«- presence of a vast under ground river, originating far to the eastward, probably at American Falls or beyond, and flowing ÿt a depth of several hundred feet underneath the whole length of the north side tract. Declaring that the flow of these springs even ns far back as 1902, long before the building of the North .Side canals, with the possible seepage from them, was twice to three times the vol ume that might be. obtained from the lost rivers to the north. Mr. Crandall conceived tho possibility that. this underground stream, paralleling the canyon for many miles, might be nn equal if not a superior to the Snake river itself. Would a dam at American Falls merely divert the waters of tho Snake to this adjacent water course, leaving Milner dam high and dry, and would the tapping of the underground river, and its diversion to the Snake river at or near American Falls, thereby greatly increasing the available water for irrigation, leave the Thousand Springs power plant with but a hand ful of water to turn lia dynamos? were some of the interesting questions ad vanced by .Mr. Crandall.
