Conserving Water Power
B EASING on the conservation problems of the United States, a very valuable
publication has recently been issued by the Geological Survey as Water
Supply Paper 238. The authors are M. Rene Tavernier, chief engineer of
the department of public works, Republic of France, and M. 0. Leighton, ch;ef
hydrographer, United States Geological Survey. The report is timely, for water
power development and its governmental regulations are now the subject of much
The principal object of the paper is to show how the French and Swiss repub
lics and the Kingdom of Italy are treating this problem in their political economy
and to afford a means of comparing foreign practice with the procedure followed
in this country. It is the opinion of the American author that in the adjustment of
our water-power problems it will be wise to observe the nature and drift o meas
ures adopted by older countries, which were long ago obliged to consider the same
questions that the people of the United States are facing at present. M. Tavernier's
contributions consist of a discussion of French, Italian and "Swiss legislation rela
tive to the development of water powers, which reviews the legislative practices and
their effect on water-power development. Ample quotations are made from laws
either enacted or proposed in the three countries.
The gist of the whole matter, so far as European interpretation is concerned,
is summed up in a statement in a proclamation of the director of public works of
the Canton of Berne, Switzerland, which is quoted by M. Tavernier, as follows:
'It is the communes on which the law imposes the obligation of establishing
and maintaining dikes and dams the people who for years and centuries have
had to bear the expense of maintaining the banks and protection works, without
taking into consideration the great damage to which they are often subject on
account of inundations who should profit by the wealth that lies in the utiliza
tion of water powers It is thus our purpose to have the country itself
profit by the water powers located."
Mr. Leighton points out the fact that otir present unpreparedness to meet the"
uew qnestions involved in power development creates some disadvantages that are
not altogether internal. In Europe water-power development has become, a
national policy which can not fail to attract great industries to the countries in
which it is properly managed. United States laws that relate either closely or
remotely to water powers are discussed and quoted extensively, and legal and
judicial" opinions are either cited or quoted in full. The statutes and. regulations
governing power development in the national forests are also given. The water-
power laws of Pennsylvania and New York are summarized, and the situation in
several western States which have enacted water laws is discussed. 1

For a National Health Board
THE American Health League is an association that is working for a national
health board and closer association between the health authorities of the
different states a very commendable enterprise and one in which all Amer
icans should readily take an interest.
Showing the immediate need of a federal health bureau to warn the people of
this ceuntry of the dangers that menace their vitality in the most common walks
of every dayi life, the league is calling attention to drugs as well as diseases with
which every American may come in harmful contact through lack of knowledge
of the principles of personal hygiene. Numerous forms of drug habits are becom
ing more prevalent everywhere in the United States than most people realize, its
The dangers of cocaine, morphine and opium have been prominently brought
before the public by the American Health League and vigorous efforts are being
made to control and minimize their sale.
Tuberculosis and many other dread diseases might be checked and avoided in
America through the educational activities of the proposed national bureau of
health, it is pointed out. Fully vl 00,000 of the deaths due each year to the great
White Plague in this country could be prevented, the American Health League
declares, while systematic activities By the government might result in lengthen
ing the average life in this country, as much as 15 years.
When congress is brought to realize the benefit to human life that must fol
low the creation of a national health bureau, this project of the people should be
at once assured.
If every American who prizes human life and health will join in urging the
creation of this highly necessary bureau to increase the nation's vitality, the suc

DOG, Man's Most

FORTS are being made to prevent
canal workers from buying the
tickets of the Panama lottery. Un
der Tne laws in force, in the canal zone
no tickets can be sold within that ter
ritory, but as soon as the canal em
ploye crosses the line between Ancon
and Panama City, or between Cristobal
and Colon, he meets the ticket sellers
everywhere. It is known that many
of the canal employes are wasting their
money on the lottery, but as yet there
has been no way to protect them. It
is likely that action may yet be ta
ken which will prohibit the buyers of
tickets from carrying them into the
canal zone, but even this would scarce
ly overcome the evil. The lottery has
eight more years to run under the
charter given it by the government of
liottery in Bishop's Palace.
The Panama lottery has its home in
the Bishop's palace, and is within a
stone's throw of the cathedral itself.
In fact, one can stand In front of the
counter at the Panama lottery and look
into the sacred precincts of the ca
thedral when its doors are opened.
Some of the best patrons -of -the lot
tery are priests.
While many of the padres of Pan
ama are as clean physically and have
as high ideals as the best church
men In more northern countries, there
are some who see no harm in buying
a lottery ticket or making a wager

ing more than a difference in the moral
view. The Spanish-speaking countries
are simply one hundred years behind
Washington and lotteries.
Georgef Washington, that paragon of
patriotic devotion to the public welfare,
in his day thought nothing of buying
a lottery ticket or of presiding at a
drawing. One may read In his pri
vate diary where he paid 50 pounds
sterling for his share of 100 tickets
in one lottery, and where at another
time he presided at colonel Moore's
drawing. "When Westover, colonel Wil
liam Byrd's famous estate on the James
river, was about to be sold for debts,
a lottery was conceived, and the fi
nances of the Byrd heirs were put Into
a healthy condition as a result of the
experiment. Washington took a num
ber of chances on Westover.
lotteries in Early America.
In a single session of the Virginia
legislature, 1832-3, there were 12 new
lotteries authorized. In Connecticut
one was authorized for the building
of an Insane asylum. In Massachusetts,
famous Plymouth Beach was repaired
by funds raised from a lottery, and
even the descendants of the Puritans
did not look askance at it. In Mis
souri one of the first acts of the legis
lature was tfte authorization of, a lot
tery to raise funds for a hospital.
Churches were built everywhere with
money raised in this way.
Even the city of Washington itself
owes some of its beauties to a lottery.
In 17S3 one was authorized to recruit
the depleted funds for the erection of
public buildings. The grand prize was
advertised as a "superb hotel, with
baths, outhouses, etc., valued at $50,000."
It would take that amount today to
equip the kitchen of one of Washing
ton's most modern hotels, but at that
stime a $50,000 hotel was considered pa
latial. There were to be two drawings,
but for some reason the second one
never was held.
From this it is evident that the mor
ality of the lottery is merely a question
of progress. The Panamanians are sim
uly behind the times whene they permit
one to be operated. Their lottery Is a
legacy of the French regime on the Isth
mus, it having been chartered at the
time when De Lesseps was there. Specu
lation and gambling were everywhere In
evidence then, and it had a prosperity
that rivaled the old Louisiana lottery
in its palmiest days. Even now, when
the United States is doing everything in
Itis power to keep the taint of the es
tablishment from coming even indirectly
into the canal zone, It has a splendid
prosperity, for, after paying all prizes,
all expenses of operation ana all trib
utes to the state and church, there Is
nearly $100,000 in annual profits to
be divided among the stockholders.
Each ordinary drawing brings into the
coffers of the lottery $10,000, one dollar
each for the 10,000 tickets sold. These
tickets, In turn, are cut up into five
coupons, and each coupon sells for 20
cents. If the ticket wins and one man
holds all Its parts he gets the whole
prize for which it calls, or if he holds
only part of the coupons he gets one
fifth of the prize for each coupon he
holds. Out of the $10,000 received from
the sale of tickets, $6,420 is returned in
prizes. In addition to this the ticket
sellers get five percent and the govern
ment five percent on all sales of tickets
so that in a completely subscribed
drawing the gross profit to the lottery
company Is $2,580.
In spite of the fact that the ticket
buyer stands 100 chances of losing to
64 of winning, the tickets find a ready
sale. There are all sorts of systems

Editor El Paso Herald:
Having read in your valuable col
umns the article written by H. I. Red
In criticism of dogs, I am moved to
The best friend a man nas In this
world may turn against him and be
come his enemy. The son or daughter
he has reared with loving care may
prove ungrateful. Those who are
nearest and dearest to us, those that
we trust with our happiness and good
name may prove traitors to their faith.
The money that a man has, he may
lose; it flies away from him perhaps
when he needs it most. A man's repu
tation may be sacrificed in a moment
of 111 considered action. The people
who are prone to fall upon their knees
to do us honor when success is with
us, may be the first to cast the stone
of malice when failure has cast its
cloud upon our heads.
The one absolutely unselfish friend
that a man can have in this selfish
world, the one that never deserts him,
the one that never proves ungrateful
or treacherous Is his dog.
A man's dog will stick to him in
prosperity and in poverty. In sickness
and in health. He will sleep on the
cold ground, where the wintry winds
blow, and the snow drives fiercely, if
only he con be near his master's side.
He will kiss the hand that has no
food to offer. He will lick the wounds
and sores that come in encounter with
the roughness of the world. He guards
the sheep of his pauper master as
though he were a nrince when
other friends desert, he remains.
When reputations fall to pieces and
when riches take wing:, he- is as con
stant in his love as the sun in its
journey through the heavens. If for

faithful dog, asks no hicrher privilege

Stories of Luck.
All sorts of stories of good and bad
luck are rife on the isthmus. Some
times an American gets the 'grand prize.
Usually he become such a feverish
gamester that his usefulness to the canal
is ended and sooner or later he is down
and out. Sometimes he varies this pro
gram by throwing up his job and re
turning to the states. In one instance
a winner of the grand prize threw up his
job and prepared to return home. He
became so drunk on board the ship that
he locked himself in his stateroom and
died. His remains were buried at sea.
A member of the United States senate,
who had helped to pass the anti-lottery
law in the United "States, bought a ticket
and won the grand prize. In another
case a prominent' official was sitting
in a poker game and lost all he had ex
cept a lottery ticket. At last he threw
that into 'the jackpot and lost again.
When the drawing came around that
ticket won the grand prize.
The manner of conducting the draw
ings is entirely fair. They are held
on Sunday at the lottery headquarters.
Forty little ivory balls are placed in
a box. These balls consist of four' sets
numbered from zero to nine. A child
Is called to do the drawing, and the
mayor and two witnesses chosen from
the crowd assist. The child draws out
one of the 40 balls, and the mayor posts
It on the board. Then another ball is
drawn out, and the result is posted.
This Is repeated until the drawing is
completed. Thus, if the first number
drawn was , the second 7, the third
9, and the fourth 6, the ticket calling
for the grand prize would be numbered
2,796. It will be seen that by this sys
tem there is no chance for crooked
The lottery idea seems to have come
into existtence during the 16th century.
By 1709 it had reached such a popularity
that it was included in the government
budget as a means of revenue raising.
Every parliamentary budget from that
time to 1S24 contained the lottery. This
was justified on the ground that there
is always a certain amount of vicious
Inclination and gambling spirit in the
community, and since this has to have
an outlet somewhere it should be turned
to good account, and ought to be made
to bear its share of the public burden.
This reasoning was well and good, but
it failed to consider the fact that lot
teries multiply the gambling spirit a
hundredfold. It was this consideration
that led to their abolition In England
Lotteries have been abolished from
nearly every English-speaking country
'on the srlobe. but thev still have a
firm hold in Spansih-speaklng countries.
Nearly every one of the republics of
Latin-America has its bull fights and
lotteries. They seem to go hand and
hand, and where one is abolished tht.
other goes with it. Many of the coun
tries of southern Europe still maintain
their lotteries, and they are so intricate
ly woven into the warp and woof of the
f 'nances of those countries that to abol
ish them would be like abolishing a cus
toms tariff in this country.
In England zat one time there were
lotteries whidh offered grand prizes
amounting to $100,000. At a parliamen
tary investigation after one great draw
ing it was disclosed that there were 50
suicides in a single night in London
which were traceable directly to the
lottery. Societies for the suppression of
lotteries sprang up in America early in
the second quarter of the 19th centruy.
They had plenty of work to do, for in
the year 1832 there were several hundred
lotteries operating in nine of the United
States, with total drawings amounting
to S66.000.000 a year. The Louisiana
lottery was the last one on United States
soil, and was finally banished. It mov
ed to Honduras where it has had a
rather turbulent existence.
Few people realize how narrowly this
country escaped a perpetuation of lot
teries. After being denied the use of
the mails the agents used the express
service. Then congress enacted a law
under the interstate commerce clause
of the constitution forbidding tht trans
portation of tickets in Inters tae com
merce. The constitutionality of the law
was attacked, and the supreme court
decided by a vote of five to four that

merce and its transportation could be

flippancy of this remark. She had
learned that a dignified silence was
