City Fathers Vote to Install Electrical Pump Unit. After having investigated the pumping plant and present wat er supply of Nogales, Louis C. Kelsey. civil and hydraulic en gineer, authorized by the com mon counc il of Nogales to pre sent data relative to the installa tion of a new pumping unit at the city plant, recommended to the City Council last Monday night that au electric driven, deep well turbine pump be in stalled. The pump is to be installed near the present pumping plant with a guaranteed capacity of 1,000 gallons per minute, using the present discharge mains. It was moved by Councilman Duffy, seconded by Councilman Fielder, that the recommenda tions of Engineer Kelsey, be adopted . The vote stood. Ayes, Coun cilmen, Duffy, Fiedler and Wy lie; Nayes, Councilmen, Herold, Karns and Middleton. Mayor Harrison cast the deciding vote in favor of the recommendations of the engineer. v The report of Engineer Kel sey, regarding bis recommenda tion, is as follows: I Recommend That: An electric driven, deep well turbine pump be installed near the present pumping plant with a guaranteed capacity of 1,000 gallons per minute using the present discharge mains; A new well be dag just below the present well said well to be about 80 ft. deep with tunnel under the Santa Cruz river to its deepest point, well to be 6x12 feet and provision made for in stalling duplicate unit of pro posed installation at some future time; Meters be installed in each of the discharge lines at the Sum mit between the Purapiug Sta tion and the city.. By suQh in stallation the city can keep check on the amount of water pumped, the efficiency of the pumps, and the loss of water in distribution. That the present pumps and engines be thoroughly overhaul ed and put in first class condi tion for a stand by plant. From the best information ob tainable, it appears that there is no material difference in the cost of operation and it is a matter of which plant is most desirable. My opinion is that the elec trical plant would be the most desirable for the following rea sons: Ease in starting and operating, Lesser initial investment, More reliable, Less care and supervision, Since completing my report. I have received from the De La Vergne engine agents a written confirmation of their verbal pro posal but they raised their-price about $3,000.00 and only guar auteed their plant to deliver 1,0C0 gallons per minute against a head of 500 ft. instead of 530 ft. I did not change my estimates, which are based upon the lower figure of their verbal quotation, since I have recommended that an electrically driven pump be installed. PROPOSr:r OIL. ENGINE UNIT The proposed oil engine unit would consist of a 200 kp. De La Vergne Oil Engine, direct con nected to a Deane Deep Well Triplex Pump with a capacity of 1,000 gallons per minute. The cost of the unit instalied, complete, would be $64,960.00. The cost of operating this plant with depreciation figured at 8 per cent on duty of 20.000, 000 gallons per month; 9 per cent on duty of 27,000,000 gal Ions per month; and 10 per cent on duty of 35,000,000 gallons per month, interest at 6 1 3 per cent labor, fuel oil, lubricants, and supplies at the same rate that the present plant lias cost for the last 30 months and repairs at the average cost for the past 5 years; would be a follows: 20,000,000 gallons per month per thousand gallons $ .1116 27,000,000 gallons per month per thousand gallons .0957 35,000,000 gallons per month per thousand gallons 0851 PliOPOSED ELECTRICAL UNIT The proposed electrical unit would consist of a 200 hp. motor, direct connected to a Deep Well Turbine Pump with a capacity of 1,000 gallons per minute against a total head of 530 feet.

Independent and organized labor should both be employed regardless of membership or non membership in lodge, church class or labor union. Instead of an employer deal ing with outside representatives who have no interest in indus try, employers should deal di rectly with laborers. - Thus only can an efficient, loyal, well-paid, contented force of employes with real esprit de corps for the industry be built up. There should be no discrimin ation against organized labor and there should be no inter ference with legitimate indus tries or business. PROTECTING FORAGE SOUGHT Tucson, Dec. At the grazing conference held at Albuquerque from December 9 to 12, and at tended by 15 representatives of the forest service, a simple plan worked out by the Santa Rita rauge reserve and presented by Director R. R. Hill, for greatest production of forage as well as to support the largest number of stock, was received with great interest. M. J. Cully, grazing examiner in the Forest Service of the Tucson district, attended the sessions with Mr. Hill. Representatives from Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico and Washington, D. C, attended the conference, which was held for the purpose of discussing the best methods of handling ranges that have been employed by progressive stockmen, with the idea of ex tending these practices to in clude all forest ranges.

NICE CHRISTMAS PRESENT. San Francisco, Dec. 15. The United States Treasury Depart ment announced today an in crease in the interest rate on Treasury Savings Certificates to H per cent. The higher rate goes into effect on the 1922 issue of the certificates which, how ever, went on sale today to ac commodate the increasing num ber of persons who buy the se curities for Christmas presents. Increase of the interest rate on this class of government se curities means that Uncle Sam will really sell $25 certificates for $20; $100 certificates for $80, and $1000 certificates for $800, provided the purchaser or re cipient holds the security to its five year maturity date. An other feature of the new certifi-: cates is the fact that individuals and corporations will be permit ted to purchase and own as high as $5000 worth of the securities by virtue of recently enacted legislation; The previous limit was $1000 and the former in terest rate 4 per cent. The Treasury will concentrate on the new securities, eliminat ing the twenty-five cent thrift stamp and the $5 war savings stamp after December 31, 1921. Sale of the $1 treasury savings stamp will be continued to pro vide an easy method of regular saving for conversion into Treas ury Savings Certificates. New regulations provide also that postal savings may likewise be converted into Treasury Sav ings Certificates under a com bined plan of sales between the Treasury and the Post Office Departments. The new certifi cates will be on sale at all post offices and banks and through other authorized agencies. The certificates offer ideal invest ment opportunities up to $5000, as they jire exempt from all taxes except inheritance and ex cess profits taxes and are back ed by the United States Govern ment. "No better Christmas or Holi day gift is offered on the bar gain counters of the country than these certificates and we expect a heavy demand for them through the post offices and banks of the Twelfth Federal Reserve District," said Theodore Hardee, director of the Govern ment Savings Organization. NOTICE. The annual meeting of the stockholders of The Nogales Na tion Hank will be held in its offices at Nogales, Arizona, on Tuesday, January 10th, 1922, at four p. DO., for the purpose of electing a board of directors for the ensuing year and for the transaction of other legitimate business that may come before the meeting. Ft STKR WRIGHT, 12 17 It Casiukk.
