HILL ORDERED TO ELEPHANT BUTTE Supervising Engineer to Come Here From the Phoenix Job. Washington, D. C, May 30. The Roosevelt dam in the Salt River valley, Ariz., is considered by the reclamation service, as being about 95 percent com pleted. Thereupon engineer L. C. Hill, who was in charge of that great pro ject, has been transferred to the Ele phant Butte dam project In Xew Mex ico, which will, when completed, be the largest project in the United States if not in the world. The sum of $1,000,000 was appropri ated by act of congress, to be expend ed for the year ending June 30, 190S. The act was iinnroved on .Tnlv 1. 1907: and a provision In the bill provided that the money was to be available on July 1, 1907; so that the work could be push ed without delay. Owing to a certain disagreement in regard to the value of certain parts of the land necessary for use in the project, which necessitated a suit In court, the operating depart ment of the reclamation service, has been delayed for one whole year, but it now looks as if work would go for ard at once. The grading for the railroad branch will be pnshed first by the operating hiirimi' no T-nntrlli- a mon onil mnno-ir '. lhe tc?8on .To- I iroad will ?

If that anuch can be used. The secretary of the interior makes i apportionments every three months. After the railroad is completed it will take considerable time to construct the foundation for the dam. . Senator Xew ell says that the Roose velt project is now supplying water to 1?1.000 acres of cutlvated land under the present cultivation there, but when that project is in full operation it will supplv sufficient water for the entire 260,000 acres under that enterprise.
