WORK ASKS TO REVISE CANYON DAM PROPOSAL WASHINGTON —Amendments to revise the Boulder Canyon hill for development of the Colorado river are contained in a report on the legislation submitted to the house irrigation committee last Wednes day by Secretary Work. In the report is an amendement which would make optional the con struction of the all-American canal in event that Mexico is unwilling to modify the terms of the present concession providing for trans portation of water to the Imperial valley. Another section provides that rights to electrical energy de veloped at the dam shall not be given to certain corporations, but that power to allocate the develop ed energy shall be vested in the secretary of the interior. Secretary Work stated that in his opinion, the bill, as amended “will consti tute a feasible and workable meas ure, under which the purposes sought to be attained through this development may be accomplished.” Referring to a proviso in the re vised bill suggesting two alterna tives to the original method pro posed for generation and disposi tion of electrical energy, Mr. Work stated that inasmuch as the alter natives are left wholly for later determination, thus permitting fur ther study, it was deemed unnec essary to discuss their relative merits at this time. dances every evening, preparatory to going to San Bernardino where they will give the “native prune pickers” a treat on February 26th to 28th, the last three days of the big Orange Show, which began on February 18th.

NEW PROPOSALS ON BOULDER DAM TO BE OFFERED WASHINGTON—WhiIe the house irrigation committee has not met for several days to discuss the Johnson-Swing bill to provide for construction of a dam at Boulder Canyon on the Colorado river, the measure has been receiving careful thought by a number of members. The recommendations by Secre tary Work as to the all-American canal and power disposal features of the bill have been transmitted by Chairman Smoot of the commit tee to members of his group, and it it expected that several propos als in reference to these will be presented at the next meeting. Just how far proponments of the measure will go in endorsing the secretary’s recommendation that construction of the proposed canal be abandoned if Mexico will give an adequate guarantee to Ameri can citizens now using waters from the canal passing through that country, remains problematical.

CAMPBELL CORA DRIVER Old Elks Building Old Elks Building Perry Given Right To Pack Shooting I ron PRESCOTT—WesIey Perry, re leased last week from custody and with the charge of murder in con nection with the killing on Thurs day of the week before, of Walter B. Miller dismissed against him, sought and secured permission from the sheriff’s office to carry a gun. He was afraid, he said, that he would run into difficulties in FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 1926 local rum circles as the result of the gun fight in which Miller met his death. Walter Perry, his twin brother, was held for trial in the superior court under $7,500 bond on a charge of murder in connection with Mil ler’s death and Montague Gordon Ellis, who left the Miller home on the night of the tragedy so that he might not be mixed up in any pending trouble, was held under SSOO bond as a material witness. Neither man furnished his bond.
