Washington, D. C, Dec. 26. The Indian appropriation bill to-day received from the Senate Commit tee on Indian Affairs the first atten tion that has been given to it by that body. The sub-committee con sisting of Senators Thurston, Piatt of Connecticut, Stewart, Jones of Arkansas and Petti grew, took up the bill and after examining many of the provisions, decided to con skier the petition of the Pima In dians of Arizona for improved facilities for securing water for irrigation. Hydrographer F. H. Newell of the Geological Survey, and others, were heard as to the utility of the proposed dam for stor age reservoirs on the Gila river at San Carlos. It was stated that these Indians had been deprived of their water supply by the construc tion of an irrigation system by white men, and that, whereas they had been self-supporting up to that time, they were now on the verge of starvation. It was estimated that the proposed dam will cost about $ 1,000,000. The committee is apparently disposed to make some provision for the un fortunate Indians. Prof. A. G.
