GOVERNIEtfTdGIAfiT DAfl Oil WtiE RIVER COMPLETED
L-J v.TI.h , '
An event of far reaching importance
Hid niaiKUig tlie partial consilium. mou
of a plan to iraiistorni to agricultural
uses the largest notiy ot sage-oruMii
land embraced iu one project iu the
United Slates lias just occurred at
In the presence of a .largo number
of settkrs and residents ol tlie val
ley, the big lieadgales of the newly
constructed government dam in the
Boise river were opened and the pent
up waters gushed into the broad cniial.
For months the settlers on the soutli
side of the project have lieeu watcn-
ing with deep interest the progress of
the work on this structure, for upon
Its completion rested their hopes of
an early and abundant suppty oi wa-
ler. The dam Is located eight miles
southeast, of Boise where the river
merges from its canyon. It Is of
jyclopean concrete founded on com
pact gravel. The spillway, or dam
proper, is 2H' feet long, .Ml feet wide
at the base and at feet high. Along
tho down-stream loe of the dam and
securely fastened to it is a timber
apron. This apron Is 30 led wide
and U! feet deep on the lower side. It
Is built up of 12x12 timbers bolted to
gether and the npiices between (he
timbers filled with rock and gravel.
At the west end of the spillway is a
logway four feet lower than tlie spill
way crest, and just west of the log-
way and forming the west abutment
of the dam is the lish ladder. I his Is
if concrete, ns are the tunnels, which
were built for the purpose of divert
ing the river during the construction
or the dam proper. These tunnels are
closed by two OxSfool cast Iron gates,
nnd will be used when need arises for
sluicing the silt from the reservoir.
The main canal with a capacity of I.
300 second feet, heads at the extreme
west end of the dam, and the water
is taken through eight fixflfoot east
Iron controlling gates supported by
concrete piers and abutments.
As the big headgates were opened
and the life giving waters gushed Into
the canal, tlie scene was viewed with
varying emotion by the throngs gath
ered there. The engineers gazed with
satisfaction at the beautifully finished
structure; the farmers saw au abun
dance of water In their canals, or
chards laden with f rti It . and enor
mous yields of grain and alfalfa. But
to the statesmen came visions of a
new Idaho, an Idaho with possibili
ties unsurpassed by any slate id all
the golden west. They saw a home on
every 40 acres of the project, a rural
population of not less than oO.ooo
people, and fiOhuo more people living
In the cities and towns which have
Jioon growing by leaps and hounds
nlnco the initiation of the government
sybteni gave assurance ol an ample
water simply. From conservative esti
mates of it. decade ago on I he value
of Irrigated land and crops it took no
complicated calculation to figure out
that more than flS.Oun. i worth of
taxable property iu land values aloin
will he added to the wealth or the
stale upon the completion of the
project, and that crops worth not less
than $ii,000,0o0 will be crown annually.
Already new railroad lines an- heing
built through the agricultural area,
new mines are being opened, and the
Mock raising Industry Increased.
But let tis follow the progress of
the water taken from the linlse dam.
The canal extends for '.'I miles to a
point on Indian ct'ei k ahoo K una.
This creek then carries the water for
Ight miles, when another canal 12
miles long carries It to tho D'-cr Flat
reservoir. Occasionally along this
route a smaller ditch diverts water
to supplement the supply fiotu other
sources, but the principal function ol
this tanal Is to feed the Deer Flat res
This reservoir was formed by build
ing two long earthen dams In depres
sions between surrounding hills. The
lower embankment, known as tin
Hubbard aud Carlson dam, is .'l.fteO
feet, long and (is feet high. It Is "oil
feet wide on the bottom, and a drive
way 20 feet wide extends along the
top. The upper embankment Is only
n fed high and 2M) r,.ot wide on the
bottom, but it has a length or nearly
a mile and a half, aud the volume of
each embankment Is approximately
1,000,000 cubic yards.
The plans for the project also con
template the diversion of the waters of
Payette river by gravity canals, and
the utilization of the Snake river by
pumping. The canal work Is being
done principally by the fanners.
The lands are generally smooth,
with getille slopes. The soil Is vol
canic, free from rocks, easily worked
and rich In the necessary mineral con
silluents. The climate Is delightful,
Ihe menu winter temperature at Boise
being about the same as that of Fred
ericksburg, Va., although occasionally
the temporal tire falls below zero for a
day or two. ' Tlie summers arc long
ami warm and with irrigation promote
the most rapid vegetable growth. The
lands produce from five to (even tons
of alfalfa per acre each year, four to
six tons of clover, HO bushels of wheat
aud "" bur.liels of oals. The surround
ing mountains furnish largo areas of
grazing lands and alfalfa for winter
feeding Is always iu demand and
brings good prices. But if is for its
lino fruit that the section is becoming
famous throughout the country, the ap
ples, pears and prunes commanding
the highest prices Iu eastern markets
The lands under the project have
practically nil been filed upon, but
many seniors will be compelled to dis
pose of their excess lands, as no water
right will be Issued for mor. than lf0
acres. It. is -no wonder that these
lands aro being rapidly takeu up, for
the marvelus crop yields are Is-com-ing
widely known. In 1904 a farmer
who was brought up In one of the
humid states in the Mississippi valley
cleared i 1,200 from a three-acre apple
ordchnrd, and' In 1!W7 the same or
chard gave liiu a net proh. of $750
per acre. One neighbor wi- t clearing
from $100 to $200 per acre en a prune,
orchard, ami iu 1H07 the same or
high as Sa bushels of when', per acre.
I.asl year a number of his friends
from "back home" moved to Idaho.
The development of power incident
to the irrigation works will be of vast
importance to the industrial develop
incut of ihe state. The dam on the
Payette liver, which will be flO feel
hieh and well backed by i.torage in
the Pnxette lakes, will give practically
unlimited power, while the Boise dam,
opened today, will probably furnish
power for municipal works, electric
railways and industries of various
kinds. The completion of the project
Ii is believed will result in laying the
foundation for such an Industrial tie
vclopmi tit as probably has never been
paralleled In this country. It means
the expenditure In that locality of mil
liens of dollars iu a few years, the in
tensive cultivation of 400.000 acres of
line bind; it means thousands of new
settlers, the doubling of the popula
tion of the cities and towns In that
portion of the state, an Increased price
for all agricultural products; better
roads, hcIiooIs ami churches,
Bill the slr.nlllentice of the opening
of the cimal Is not purely local In char
acter. The completion of a unit of this
great project only marks another mile
stone iu the development of the west
mid heralds to tho world the begin
ning of an era of prosperity that has
com'' to slay and that will le reflected
In the increased prosperity in all Hues
of Industry throughout the whole country.
