-Irrigation Scteine of Senator Akers.
Senator W. R. Akers, of Scott's
Bluff county, one of the secretaries
of the state board of irrigation, has
evolved a plan, says an exchange,
for watering" a large scope of coun
try. .He is confident that water
may be drawn from the Platte river,
west of Kearney, carried across the
country aboujt.. fifteen miles to a
tributary of the Ivittle Blue at a
point about six miles west ot Min
den. This water will "pass through
Adams. Kearney, Webster,Fillniore
and Jefferson counties, and across
a" part of Clay count-.-
Secretary Akers believes this
water can be held in reserve all
along the line by means of reser
voirs, which can be constructed out
ot draws and pockets that are loca
ted along the river. These reser
voirs can be connected by canals,
- and thfe water conducted upou farm
ing land at comparatively little ex
pense. . His plan is to turn water
into this svstem of reservoirs from
tlie Platte river, taking such water
as would be wasted in time of floods.
The counties along- this proposed
irrigating canal are the best in the
statewbut they have suffered c:n
siderably during the past year or
two froack of rain. Secretary
Akers recently visited Hebron and
found the people heartily in favor
of the plan.
As there is considerable interest
manifested in Uorth Platte in re-
gard to the Denver healer, we pub
lish the following dispatch from
that city, dated Sunday: Yesterday
Schlatter, the healer, closed his
fourth week of public work by treat
ing" as many people as usual. The
crowd around the "Fox home" yes
terday was the largest yet noted.
They began to arrive as early as
1 a. m., and before Schlatter emerg
ed the line extended four abreast
for more than two blocks. After
he returned, to the house in the ev
ening many disappointed could not
repress their grief and they went
sobbing away. Schlatter has an
nounced that he has been told to
fast again and he will enter upon
his duty before he leaves Denver.
His strength shows no symptoms
of failing and he seems
in disposition in spite of constant
annoyances. Stories of cures dif
ficult to believe are heard on every
side. However, not every one who
takes the treatment is benefited,
jtfany sad cases occur where people
come a Jong distance only to fail in
finding: relief. Schlatter does not
' profess to cure all, and he safely
leaves the cases with the "Father."
The magnetic and other kinds of
specialist doctors have had very
little business to dp since Schlatter
came to town.

A DesiaL
Editor Tribune: Will you kind
ly allow space in your columns for
a political opponent to say to his
Jriends that the statement that . he
has withdrawn his name as a. can
didate, for the office of county com
missioner is simply a fabrication
without basis in fact.
I have been a resident of Lincoln
county for twentj'-two years and
have never before been a candidate
for office. I did not seek a nomina
tion at this time, but having re
ceived it unsolicited have accepted
it in good faith, and if elected will
use my best efforts to conduct the
affairs of the county on business
principles, regardless of party.
Yours respectfully,
P. F. Dolan.
