Fxteaslve rrnln of Entire Wide Valley for Maay Mlloa. (From a Staff Correspondent.) WAHHINOTON, Nov. I (Special.) In- tensive farming In ith valley, of th South 11 Platte, between North Platte, Nb., an1 If Sterling. Colo., will receive a big Impetus from tha report of the reclamation service which has recently concluded an Interesting- Investigation in that section. Valuable practical . suggestions are offered and methoda suggested by which the water re sources of the valley can be developed with out the construction of costly plants, and It Is recommended that the engines which are used during tho manufacturing season of the year to grind the sugar beets should be employed during the growing season to pump water to the land on which the beets are grown. Since the passage of tha national irriga tion act and the formation of the reclama tion service, special attention has been paid tc the Investigation of the underground waters of the great plains, and means of bringing them Into service. These under ground waters belong to two general classes and are divided with reference to the geo logic character of the formations In which thejr are found. The first of these Is found In Dakota, sandstone and occurs under suffi cient pressure to cause It to rise an appre ciable distance abov the level at which the drill moots It, thus, forming artesian wells. The other Is known as underflow or sheet water; and is found In sands and gravels. Its occurrence Is very general all over the great plains at various depths, and the problem of utilising it for Irrigation, If successfully solved, means the reclamation of extensive areas of wonderfully produc tive soil which io-c today worthless for any purpose save the graalng of cattle and sheep. Iaveatlaratlaar tho J'aderflow. The results of the Investigation conducted by the reclamation service In the valley of A the South Platte will appear In the forth coming annual report of tha service. This investigation was begun In the middle of l 1 . July, 1906, and extended from Sterling, uoio. to North Platte, nto. xne worn waa in charge of Prof. Charles S. Sllchter and a corps of assistants. Its purpose was to de- termlne what resources. If any, existed In the underflow waters of that valley, and whotherlt was practicable to make use of such waters If they were found to exist in suitable quantities for irrigation, The vat . Icy varies In width from two to eight miles : m and the river occupies a very sandy stretch ft Vome 1,500 to 2.500 feet In width. Briefly summarized, the reconnalsanee of the South Platte valley Indicates that there Is an ample supply of ground water for the Irrigation of suitable lands In the bottoms along the valley, but that It Is Impracticable In this section to divert any of tha ground water from the valley of tha stream upon the high lands which, border K. -There, re mains, however, a considerable quantity of bottom lands In the ' valley of the river proper, of such a quality and so situated as to be especially Inviting for Irrigation pur poses. The entire valley ' la traversed by tha" main line of tha Vnlon Pacific and there seems no reason to doubt that. It Is capable of supporting a very considerable popula ! I tlon If engaged In Intensive farming on I I small Irrigated tracts. Plait to Keep uagiaes unay. The report finds that tha quality of the gravels Is especially favorable for tha con struction of wells of large capacity, lndl cations being that pumping plants can be very economically constructed and proved profitable where the soli and markets are favorable. At locations where the valley reaches a considerable depth, It would seem practicable. In the opinion of the ex perts, to construct a central power station and transmit power to .numerous, small pumping plants located on. small holdings of Irrigable land. At Sterling It Is sug gested that such power could be secured from the large sugar . factory which has been built at that place. At other points In the valley these factories could be estab lished and the powerful and expensive en- V' gines utilised during the Irrigation seaaon fV 4 generate electricity, which could be -T" transmitted over a large section of the val- ' ley adjacent to the factory to pump under- ground waters upon lands planted In sugar beets. Under present conditions, during a large portion of the year the engines in tha I factories remain idle. In fact, they are never In operation until after tha Irriga tion season Is closed. , At other points In the valley small pumping plants owned by individual farmers could be constructed for JJ tlon of high-grade crops. Maar "mall Plaat (he Keed. One of the favorable conclusions from tha work In this valley la that private capital methods and they have learned that the can properly develop the water resources larger the load hauled at one time the existing without the necessity of construct- 1 cheaper the cost of transportation. I ex ing large plants requiring large capital or j pect that in a very few years the majority government aid. The situation seems to 1 of the railroads In the country will abandon call for numerous small pumping plants j wood and confine their, rolling stock to rather than (or a single large plant and , steel." there csn be no doubt that it will be dies per to build numerous plants, not td exceed in capacity 2.500 gallons per minute each, than to attempt to install more plants of greater slxe. The discovery that water in the valley of Rlrdwood creek has a considerable arteslsn head may prove of great value to lands near North Platte, as tha lands near Bird wood creek, with the exception of a very narrow strip of valley, consist of sand hills of little value for agricultural pur poses. By the construction of numerous w.lu.-llw-H w.lla AHrttlt 1Af In . - - ... urillll, along the west fork of Blrdwood creek, the low stage flow of the stream could be nearly doubled and the waters taken from the creek near it. mouth and placed upon lands In the valley of th. Platte river. Good lands In the valley of the South Piatt, are in l.r.e nart still lying idle and th. immi. gration of people able to make . the best um of the present water resources Is very much to be desired. . Postals that Aro Damped. Th. post card lad. which has swept th. country rbm on. end to the other. Is costing th. people of th. United Btates thousands pf dollars every day, for which ' they get 110 returns whatever, not even friends recelv. th. cards which they dump of affairs ls'du. to the fact that there is an entire misapprehension as to th. lastal laws and regulations applying to tha posul rate on these mailing cards. Th. law recognises two classes of these cards, on. which ara In strict conformity with. pisuT Tard- ar. prated I T conspicuous V mMJU l" l.uer. on on. .id. with notlc. thTt on" I 'h. wT. Z ?

At lie present time th.r is Washington manufacturing concern I,. , rards from macerated money, that Is to say, bank bills or greenbacks which bay. been re- to th, treasury and destroyed. Th. pulp thereby created la sold and pressed out Into post cards. Put these cards do not comply with the regulations In that their texture Is of a different character from the regular postal card. The change in texture subjects them to the same rates as letters, but the public does not know this, and the manufacturers have printed on these cards a statement to the effect that 1 cent will carry thenv anywhere. In the Washington postofflce one day this week not less than 200 of these cards were thrown out of the malls because of In sufficient postage thereon. Forelca Postal Ltwi Poa't Go. There la another claaa of cards very popular today made of leather and alum inum. Literally nundxed of thousands of these missives have been sent to the dead letter office because the senders attempted to have their souvenirs reach their destina tion with the attachment of a 1-cent stamp only. The English postal laws permit the writing of a portion of a message on the address side of a post card, and the stores of nearly every city In the United Btates have thousands of these cards exposed for sale, which are purchased with the Idea that the English lsw printed coneplcu-' ously thereon, applies to the United States postal service. Since this Is not the fact. all such cards find their way to the dead letter office, where tona of them are de stroyed every year. In addition to these cases cited, a number of popular cards ara manufactured today which have a sort of door In the back of them, which upon being opened reveals a long strip containing pictures of public buildings and points of Interest. These are thick contrivances, and the manu facturers have printed on the face, In the pace reserved for the postage stamp, words to the effect that 1 cent will carry them anywhere. The fact Is, these cads, as they are called, are mailable only as merchandise, and when sent to foreign countries the charge Is 10 cents Instead of cent. As a consequence thousands of these cards find their way to the dead letter office. It would astound people who have no idea of the mass of material of this kind, which Is Improperly mailed, to ate Just how much of It Is thrown out every day In every large city In the coun try. The contributions from San Fran cisco and New York to the pile of dead matter, which comes to Washington, foot up to literally car loads each month, and within the past' few years, or since this postal fad started, the "dead cards" ad dressed to Japan alone, which have been sent on here from San Francisco, would be sufficient to paper every room In the White House with these souvenirs. People who desire to remember their friends with souvenir cards, and about five people out of every ten do so now-a-days, . should consult the postal authorities In the city in which they mail their missives, if they desire to avoid the loss of the postage and the original cost of the card. Rift-Ms of Bank Stockholders. The United States supreme court has just handed down 'a decree which Is of perhaps greater Interest to the national banking system than any other opinion rendered by that tribunal alnce It was decided some fifteen years ago In the case of the First National bank of Buffalo that directors need pot direct. It seems that a stockholder In one of the national banks of Utah de manded the right to examine the books for the purpose of ascertaining wheth'er the officers of the bank were making proper loans. His ' request was denied, and he carried the case to the court, where the action of the officers of the bank was originally upheld. But upon appealing to tha supreme court that tribunal held that the stockholder In the bank has a right to sea. how his money Is Invested. This means. If It means anything, that a man holding one share of stock In any national bank can go to that bank and find out just exactlr who are the borrowers. : It means, too, that a holder it a single srpre in one bank, who may be a director la another, can readily ascertain just what business the bank in which he holds one share Is doing, and It Is feared that the result may be detrimental, as It practically gives a shareholder a chance to know the business of every customer of the bank In which he baa a small Interest.. Steel for Railway Cars. Itenry Clay Evans, who for a year or more was consul general to London, In which position he was. recently succeeded by former Postmaster General Wynne, has returned to Chattanooga, Tenn., where he has engaged In the manufacture of steel cars. Speaking of the recent announcement that tha Pennsylvania and some of the other large railroads propose to adopt steel as the material for the manufacture of passenger coaches, Mr. Evans said today: "It la not generally, known, but It Is a fact nevertheless that about twenty years ago we began the construction of small steel ' cars for the sugar cane trade of Louisiana. At first these cars were of one ton capacity, and were built to run upon railroads of only two feet gauge. Gradu ally the orders' for Increased sises in these cars have grown until today we are build ing all these cars of twenty tons capacity and of a gauge only slightly under the standard. This only Indicates that the southern-planters are adopting modern . Townslto Bales Postponed. The secretary ef the Interior, acting upon the suggestions of the governor and many prominent cltisens of Idaho, has announced the postponement of sales of lots In the new townsltea of Heyburn and Rupert, on the Minidoka project. The dates of sale, November 14 and 21, respectively, have been extensively advertised, and indications were that a large attendance would be present Owing to the lateness of the season, the possibility of bad weather and the lack of accommodations for the visit l ., Mmm.A -,. . . ..

Ieember was down Mifff'io to HCHc at 88H Ct8874c The initial decline followed cable grams telling of a weak feeling manifested in the wheat market at Liverpool. There was little in the way of news here- to create Interest As a result tha volume of tradlna for the day was small. Commission houses were tne principal sellers early in the ses sion.

The result waa that moat of the stuff was carried over. As will be noted from the table above the receipts of cattle this week have been somewhat larger than for the previous three wu'iks, but a tritle smaller than forthetirst week of last month. As con.pared with a year ago there haa been a gain of abut 9.000 head. The week's trade 011 beef steers opened at prices that were just about steudy with tne close 01 last ween, ine run wan oniy moderate, and during th. week the more desirable kinds of cattle have been rather scarce, which, with good demand, Iras aided In keeping the prices steady during tne weea. All during in. weea mere naa oeen decided shortage of corn feds and the mora choice claas of cattle, while the de mand for choice stuff of this kind has been active, as a result choice beef steers closed the week steady with last week. Cows and belters nave been in good sup ply all week, there being an unusually large run of cow stuff. Monday and Tuesday the demand for this kind of stuff was fairly active, both on the par of packers and outside people, with the result that cows were steudy with last week on those riava. Wednesday cam. the big run of the week on cows, about 126 cars being re ceived. As a result, although the demand was fair, prices were rorced down aDout lev Thursday the? held steady, but Frl- ! day witnessed another decline of about 10c. BO tnai 11 is an 10 nay iiiai mo market for the week closed 10jyi5c lower than last week. A very good portion of the stuff coming forward this week has consisted of stock ers and feeders. But there has been a falrlv good demand (or tnis kind of stuff the (ast of the week. Monday the market on this kind of cattle was inclined to drag a little, but for the remaining days of the week there was a good demand and the market picked up a nine, wun tne result that th. market closed steady tj a trtfl. higher on the mor. choice class of stuff. and on the common and medium grade of feeders th. market .closed practically steady. .... tmrsn There was a moderately larg. run of hogs today and the majority of tho stuff got intO tne pens l iinuuimuir el ir hour, so thst the traders succeeded In ef fecting a clearance In fairly good season. Th. market opened in fairly good shape this morning on th. good, desirable kind of hogs, which were in demand at prices that were steady with yesterday's. Th. light-weight stuff was th. more deslrabl. and It waa the more desirable stuff thst brought th. best prices. That kind of hogs were In fair demand, while the com mon and medium class of stuff was not as strong and sold at prices that were a lit tle easier, "taxing me maraei a wnoia and to sum It up In a few words, th. sit uation Is as follows: Trud. was active, with the market steady and bulk of the stuff selling at prices ranging from $4.85 to $4 90. The top price paid for hogs today was $5.00 for a choice lot of stuff. The market for the week has suffered a decline pf about 6c from the prices of last week. Monday the market was slightly higher than the clos. ef last week, but Tuesday and Wednesday saw a decline, while the market firmed up the last of th. week and closed with prices about 6c lower than last week.
