good stand of pinon and juniper and
some western yellow pine. The cord
wood Is estimated at five cords per
acre. Other small additions were made
southwest of Gallinas, north of Church
mountain, and west of Lane mountain.
These additions will in no way affect
the grazing plans for the Lincoln for

fees will be charged for stock grazing
on these areas for the first year.
The lands which are eliminated will
be restored to settlement and entry aft

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

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.
