Congress Asked to Give $250,000 for le
gation Surveys Vitally Important ,
. Workof the Geological
The great importance to the west of
the work which the irrigation branch
pf the Geological Survey is doing is
perhaps not as generally understood as
it should be. For some years the sur
vey has been working along on small
appropriations, making" stream meas
urements and reservoir surveys, but if
the west is to attain its full develop
ment through irrigation, this work
should be pushed and reservoir sites
should be determined, surveyed and
set aside, subject to development by
private capital or government enter
prise. Persons familiar with reservoir
engineering know that nature plays
some queer pranks on individuals and
that what appears an ideal place for
water storage may in fact be incap
able of holding water, while a site
which seems to even the careful ob
server to be anything but suitable for
water storage, may in reality afford a
situation for a reservoir of great pro
portions. The general mistake of the average
person, the Geological Surveyors say,
is in thinking that a canyon with steep
sides and a narrow neck, suitable for a
dam site, will make a practicable res
ervoir. There are many such sites
and the dam construction would not
be difocult, but the slopes are too
precipitate and the amount of water
impounded would not be sufficient to
warrant the construction of the dam.
The best sites must include a neck, of
course, which can be readily dammed,
while the slopes should be very gradual
and the fall of the river slight, per
haps imperceptible to naked ye, thus
insuring a very large surface for stor
age. The descent of some rivers is so
rapid, that while to all appearances
they afford good storage facilities, a
dam of practicable height would not
back up sufficient water to warrant
construction. The catchment area of
reservoirs as well as the annual flow
of streams must likewise be considered.
All these points can only be deter
mined definitely by the surveyor's in
struments, and so, if it is desired to
have definite information upon which
to work, either as regards private in
vestment or ultimate government con
struction, it is extremely important
that this preliminary work should pro
gress as rapidly as possible.
Congress is being asked for a good
sized appropriation this session with
which to carry on this work, in amount
250,000, and the whole West, being
vitally interested, will watch for a

Hostility to irrigation legislation has
developed in the east, from time to
time, broad minded expressions among
men liberal enough to see that what
build3 up one part of the country must
reflesibly help all other parts.
It is pleasing to note that such a far
eastern paper as the Boston Transcript
recognizes the fact that irrigation ap'
propriations for the west would be na
tional investments, in the interests of
and for the benefit of all the people of
the United States.
Quite a part of the annual outlay of
the nation, the Transcript says, is an
investment rather than an expend
iture. Publie buildings are direct in
vestments, obvious to everybody, be
cause they save rental to the govern
ment. In the case of certain other
appropriations, the investment aspect.
while just as genuine, is so indirect as
to escape attention. An appropri
ation for the improvement of lioston
harbor would be an indirect invest
mest. The cost of transportation is one
of the great public charges, the rates
of which bear directly upon the
fortunes of everybody. A deep channel
to Boston makes possible large ships
and therefore low freight rates. The
government in spending monoy for
such improvements makes easier the
future burden of its citizens and as
the interests of the citizen, and the
State are identical, this becomes an
investment pure and simple.
It is the same story, continues the
Transcript, with all worthy river and
harbor imrovements'; they are national
investments. Irrigation expenses, in so
far as they provide for permanent
works, come under the same head.
National expenditures of the invest
ment sort should be encouraged, es
pecially when the country is so prosper
ous that it can bear its burden well as
against the time of greater stringency.
It takes but slight study to see that
an irrigation appropriation applied to
any one section would almost immedi

(From the Phoenix Republican. 5
Here is good news for Phoenix and
important if true. While the delegates
from Florence to the democratic terri
torial convention were waiting at Casa
Grande on Tuesday night, they were
entertained at great length by a woman
named Mrs. William Beard, who is go
ing to tap this town with a railroad.
She has, she says, a concession from
the Mexican government for a line
from a bay south of Topolobampo.
The concession embraces 10,000 acres
of land and a Kubsidy of $10,000 a mile,
besides other valuable inducements
from the states of Sonora and Sinaloa,
and other Mexican states through
which the railroad is going to run. It
will enter the United States at a point
near Lenoria, about twenty miles east
of Ndgales, and will thence be run in a
general northwesterly direction to
Phoenix. What is to be done after
that is yet to be determined. Mrs.
Beard said she had an offer of $50,000
to build to Deming instead of to Phoe
nix, but she had declined for the reason
that her husband, an experienced rain
ing man, who died in Alaska, told her
that central and northern Arizona was
the richest and most promising mineral
region in the world.
Besides $50,000 is a bagatelle hardly
worth considering since she is backed
by capitalists of the Hague to the ex
tent of $44,000,000. Another aggrega
tion of capitalists have since wanted to
put $S0,000,000 into the enterprise on
account of the attractive character of
the Mexican concession, but she de
clined the offer on tha ground that
$44,000,000 was enough.
A branch line of the road will be
built to Topolobampo, that settlement
having been turned over to her by the
Mexican government, the original con
