PtENTY OF WATER FOR THE PURPOSE River a De-ea4able Sar-e ( Sapply far fifflrlest te Reelaiaa Tkret llaadred Tka.aad Aerea ( Rieh Use, rfELLE FOURCHE, S. D.. April lS.-To tlie Editor of The Bee: The publication of an abbreviated telegram from this point L given rise to some dissatisfaction he cause the telegram in question appeared to leave doubt hst there is a suScient water supply la the Belle Fourche river to make tlie governmental Irrigation project complete succeaa The fact la that every from the town of Belle Fourche the main I had a pleasant time and were much Im- reserrolr will be located. The reservoir will be formed by the construction of an enormous dam In Dry creek, a tributary ot the Bell Fourche river. The dam will be t,SM feet long, built of earth and stone rlprapped. and will be eighty feet In height. The surface area of the lake thus formed will be 4.0 acres and It will con tain an.OOe acre feet of water. In addition to this there will be several smaller res ervoirs to the east aad south. It Is esti mated that at least 130 miles of distributing canals will be necessary to carry the water over the land when It la all settled, flare for Hetaeserkm. The influence of these taken upon the climate ought to be noticeable, and the fact that the region to be Irrigated is protected from the south winds by the high hills and forests cf the Black Hills will tend to diminish evaporation and make the require ments for water from the ditches much less proportionately than on the high plains of Colorado, Montana and New Mexico. j The soil of the Belle Fourche region will pressed with Dead wood after dark.

In the United States court to day the Rock 1 aland Railroad company con fessed Judgment and paid a penalty of riflO and coits for violation of the safety appliance law. The ease was brought by United States Attorney Elliott at the In stigation of the Interstate Commerce com mission. The violakm for which the rail road company was being prosecuted oc curred November 2 last, m nature of complaint being that the railroad company bad In use on Its line a car with defective safety appliances in that the devis which ina mere is practically no doubt In the ; aaxd in the soil, it being a heavy loam mina oi anyone thoroughly conversant ; capable of holding moisture for a long with conditions that the work will prove I period of time. There will soon be a force a complete success. The preliminary sur- j of thirty men to the field engaged in the rey for this undertaking was made last surveying of all the land under the ditch. summer under direction of Raymond F. Chief Newell of the division will be on hand Walter, who has charge of the work of the United States geological survey. The measurement of the waters of the Belle Fourche and Red rivers were not made until June, long after the flood season, and till the gauges showed l,ij acre feet of water. It Is fair to presume that had the measurements been made In the early spring, when the enow waters of the Black Hills and of the surrounding plains were adding their volume to the Belle Fourche river that from one-third to one-half mote water would have bt-eo shown by the gaugea If the engineer's estimate that it will take two acre feet of water te irrigate each acre of ground Is true, then It is safe to predict that at least Sofi.ouO acres of land will be placed ur.der Irrigation. It is quite probable that less water wiS be re-qeirt-d than Is anticipated, because the weather bureau at Fort Meade, estab lished in lfTS. shows an average annual ramf.nl of nineteen and one-half lnchea. Tfcis of itself would be sufficient, under ordinary conditions, to produce a fine crop. to open the season's work. There are still Scleral hundred homesteads which can be taken within the area covered by this Irri gation project, and It is a mystery to me why people will go crazy over the Roaehud lard, which it is improbable will be opened for a kmg time. If ever, wnen they can se cure equally as good or better land witlUn twenty miles of Sturgis or Belle Fourche w hich has the added virtue of government irrigation.

Steps were taken at the meet ing to combat the Beef trust by the estab lishment ot independent packing concerns, snd the suggestions made received the ap probation of all the delegates. Transports tlon was another subject which was dis cussed and which received a great deal of consideration from the members of the convention, and the association will en deavor to secure better terms and greater privileges from the railroads In the future. . From the secretary's report It was evi dent that while conditions were not so favorable to the cattle lalsing interests as they were a year ago, still they are not so bad as to give reason for alarm. At Chi cago and Omaha, according to the report, there were marketed 75k tS bead of range tattle during 13, as against mono for the year before.

D April li tSpeclal Tele gram. A prairie fire was started from some unknown cause about twenty miles southeast of Fort Pierre about noon yes terday and destroyed the buildiuga a,id contents and a large amount of hay for a homesteader named Kruger. Kruger came out here a year ago and arranged for the coming of his family this spring. They ar rived about a month ago with a car of household goods, all of which were lost. The family was st dinner and as the fire was on them before they knew it was burning they had a narrow escape from death, getting out with a team and wagon. No other losses are reported except to the range, but the fire burned to the south all night and the chances are for some losses la Lyman county.
