Nothing is of greater interest to the live Weiser man just now than the detail of our probable water sup ply—the great boon we have been praying for these three years past. It has been commonly supposed by many that Weiser could only pro cure a tank and tower and it was feared that this could not be made extensive enough to supply the city for long. The rule has been for grave countenances to look more grave and beads upon which they were hung to wag woefully from side to side as it was announced that a reservoir and gravity system, the only system that would serve, would cost $75,000 to $100,000—entirely beyond our reach. A Seattle man sheds sunshine on the situation by saying that, while the reservoir is what we need, it is within our reach—that the money available under the provisions of the coming bond issue will be ample to put in the light plant, pumping plant, big concrete reservoir and five miles of mains. Mr. E. W. Cummings, a skilled engineer, who makes a business of planning and supervising the instal lation of municipal plants, has put in a large number of plants, being employed by the cities to protect their interests and supervise the work on behalf of the municipality in or der to guarantee that contractors fulfilled their contracts He is now employed to look after Caldwell's in terests in tbe new plant being ar ranged for there. Hearing of Weiser's intention, Mr. CnmmiDgs came over and, in com pany with Mayor Kelly, looked the ground over last Monday and found that Weiser bas superior facilities for a water system He appeared before the coudciI by request of that body, and made the following state ment: "I find several excellent sites, wbicb would require surveys to de termine exactly which is tbe most advantageous. However, I am in clined to favor a site Mr. Kelly and myself found nK/w«» thy Wei ser Ac ademy, where little excavation would lie required and there is an ex cellent bed for the concrete lining. A reservoir of half a million g allons could be constructed there at small cost. It would give about fe et fall, furnishing a pressure of not less than 86 pounds to the square inch, which would throw water over any huildings that would be erected here for years. The reservoir is un doubtedly the most serviceable and cheaper. This town will at present use 15.000 g allons per day, but will soon grow beyond that. A 100,000 tank would require the pumps to Vie going all tbe time to keep it filled, and such a tank and tower would oost $10,000, and the small plant would soon be outgrown and you would have it to do over—it is better to start on broad lines. Tbe reser voir would hold enough to supply tbe town for six days and would meet tbe daily need of 10,000 peo ple, which I believe you will shortly have from my experience of the re sults of these enterprises, say, the tank and tower for a hun dred cost other extra pipe will not cost over $7,000 or $8,000, and will save over the tank in operating expenses as the engines will not have to be run as continùously as with tbe tank, doing away with one engineer and a cer tain amount of fuel. I believe tbe As 1 thousand gallons will $10,000, and band the reservoir and the on reservoir will save $2.500 a year over the tank besides being cheaper of construction. At Caldwell they were^Qii figuring on a tank and tower. Their best bids were $7,000. They changed to a reservoir, and it, with the extra pipe will cost $4,500 " "I have always understood that a reservoir system would cost twice as much money as we will have," Baid councilman Hitt. "Well", said Mr. Cummings, would like to make tbe plans and see them carried out for the city, and I will guarantee that the reser voir can be built, six miles of mains laid and the plant put in operation for the money yon will have. Cald well thought she could not put in the plant there for $20,000. The bids will be opened tomorrow and I am confident tbe price will not be over $18,000. Your plant here is larger than Caldwell's but your money will build it. You could afford to ex pend even a greater sum if necessary for the reservoir system. I would recommend one engine large enougli to run the pumps and dynamos at the same time. The very small risk of a short break down will scarcely "l justify expending $3,000 or $4,000 for the extra engine. That mofiey should be put into a larger main— the larger your main the better. It should be not less than 12 inches and 14 if you can afford it. With the reservoir full, you would have a six day supply on hand, in which time ordinary repairs could be made. "The lights and water together is an ideal system and can be put in together at a much smaller relative cost than could either alone." Maygr JCelly accompanied Mr. Cummings to Caldwell to be present when the bids were opened and gain all the information possible. The mayor is devoting a great deal of at tention to the matter and he is deter mined to see that Weiser gets full value for the money expended and the city can rest assured that Mr. Kelly is devoting heart and soul to the city's interest. Guns at Jenney's cyclery. 3000 grain sacks at Kimball's Chris Hildanbrand arrived yester day from Danville, Iowa, End is hik ing out for the hills to do his annual assessment work on Tiis Rapid River mines. On the way out he met a Colorado man who went into Thuu der Mountain in March and came out verbally warming the country. When Chris got through telling the gentle man what he, Chris, knew, through 30 years experience of the moun tains, the Coloradoman decided to hit it again and he will be in Weiser in a few days returning to Thunder to do some prospecting. Cigars on Ice at po-uotiice. Clean and satisfactory shaves at the Star Barber shop. Work Suspended. H. V. Gates of Hillsboro, Oregon, and Walter Moore of Baker City, who are largely interested in the Malhuer Company, visited the company's properties in Dry Gulch this week, and as a result of their visit,, opera tions at fhe oil well have been sus pended for ninety days. The drill ers have struck an unusually hard rock iu the well and in order to drill further it is necessary to secuie heavier machinery, purchased in the east. Messrs. Gates and Moore have great faith in the future of the Malheur oil fields, and give assurances that work will which will be be resumed this full, ham, the genial manager of the com pany who has had charge o f the work, departed yesterday morning for San Francisco. —Huntington Herald.

AT One of Idaho's Most Promising Near District IS k MAGNIFICENT GOLD BELT Ledges Now Pound Will Support a Darns Mills. Grangevllla Standard. '•Th«-re are already enough good ledges uncovered on Bear creek ahm* to mu from a dozen to 25 small mills," said J. M. Herman, of Florence, in this week from Mar shall lake district. "The ledges ara narrow, but they are rich, and bear every evidence of continuing to great depth. They can be worked by small capital and small mills. It is a poor man's camp par excellence. The ore isn't all free milling, how ever, though a mill will save quite » bit of (he gold. But it would be easy to 1 -se $500 a ton in the con centrates, while saving $50 a ton oa the pintes from some of the rich ore, A concentrating table would be a necessary part of a mill equipment there "Some fine strikes are being made on Carey creek, up from the old wir» bridge. Fox & Brggs have the latest big find. Along the old trail at the head of the creek were some big boulters, which had been dodged by hundreds or thousands of travel ers, as of no value. These two men examin'd the boulders, found them to be rich in gold, and following up the hiilsule, uncovered a fine 4-foot vein. Fiom all appearances they have a teal bonanza This is only one ot many good finds." R J McConnell, wbo came out Sa'ur i«y from Marshall lake, reports that Matt Gilbert and A. L White had n,«de some placer locations on : I lie head i f Lake creek, which prom ise verv well He says that the whole country is filling up rapidly wi b pioai>ectors, though there is a large and pratically virgin field for woik. The country immediately around Marshall lake is looked upon as one of the best in the whole dis trici. T e average value of the gold bearing quartz so far found in Mar shall lake district is said to be higher than from any other district in Idaho. Quite a number of Grangeville men are now prospecting in the Marshall lake cunry.
