The Shoshone dam In WyomliiR. Jut east or

top 1.0SO tVet loin;. It cost $0,500,000. It malies

The (.rand valley reclamation project In Col
orado litis a roller-crest dam across the tSrand
rher which Is the largest In the wot Id.
Now, of course, the proposed Colorado river dam
will not he litter In every way than these mighty
dams. Nevertheless, It will he the hlntfest of
all In the tense Hint it will h'e the most spectacu
lar of all dams, from nn eiiKlneerliiK view point.
Perhaps an engineer nilf,iit call It the most bpec
tacular eiiKhieorlnj: feat In nil history.
I'or the propo-ed dam will have to he from
f(K) to COO feet highnearly twice as high as any
such Miuet uro In oxlMcnto. To nttaln this Ini
inense height It will have to he ninny timea as
great In hulk. It will hne to he hullt lietween
Hoods In a desperate race against time. It will
create a tremendous reservoir, nohody know.s Just
how hlg; It will hack up the waters of the Col
orado for a hundred miles and llnd Its level In the
liintinierahle cations leading off on hotli sides.
lis promoters claim that It will make fertile hy
Irrigation a great desert'; that It will furnish vast'
hydro-oloctiio power; that It will help solo tho
problem of the Coloiado at the Mexican hnmidary
line, which continually endangers the Imperial
alloy of California.
The site of this proposed monster dnin Is Moul
der canon. The Colorado, after leaving the Grand
canon, runs straight west for u hundred miles.
Then It tin ns utmost at right angles to the south,
forming the hoiuidary line hetween Nevada and
California on the west and Arizona ou the east.
Near this right-angled turn Is Iloulder canon
2,000 feet deep and :t-0 feet wide at the hnse
and 730 feet wide where the top of the dam will
come. One end of the diitn will he In Arizona and
the other In Nevada.
This, you see, Is a dam Mte worthy of tho
great Colorado, which has Us headwaters In
Wyoming and drains parts of seven hlg states.
In Wyoming nml Utah this river Is called Hie
Green. The Colorado hninch Is called the Grand.
The Grand and the Green unite In southeast Utah
to form tho Coloiado. Curiously enough the leg
islatures of Wyoming, Utah and Colorado are now
In a raco to change the "Green" nnd "Grand" to
"Colorado" anil a hill to this effect Is also pending
Many rivers unite to form tho majestic Col
orado. The principal hranches of tho Green nro
tho Uinta, Trice, Yanipa and White; of the Grand,
tho Kagle, Hoarlng Fork, Gunnison nnd Dolores;
of tho Colorado, tho Fremont, Escnlante, Parla,
Kanah and Virgin on tho right and the San Juan,

Colorado to the Grand Wnsli. Tho Grand Canou
Natlonnl park contains 001 square miles nnd en
closes 217 miles of the rlvrr, which In places
Is 0,000 feet below the rim of the canon.
The lower Colorado runs through n low desert
country. At Yuma on tho Mexlcnn lino Is an Im
mense Irrigation project which consists of a di
version dam nearly a mile long, 400 tulles of
rannlH nnd 70 miles of dikes nnd cost ahout $5,

P.olow Yuma the river, when In Hood, Inundates
huge aioa.s lying below sea level, in 1005 the
Hoods enlarged the GO-foot Intake of the imperial
valley Irrigation cnnal In Mexican territory to
2,000 feet. It poured all Its waters through this
break and Its regular channel to tho Gulf of
allfornlu went dry. This break was not suc
cessfully closed until 1000-07. Floods ngaln
threatened to drown out the Imperial valley and
In 1P01M0 a congressional appropriation of SL
000,000 was applied to the construction of levees
and dikes. Most of the Imperial valley Is below
sea level and was formerly a part of the Gulf
of California. The Colorado built Itself an auue
duci from Its silt and cut off the part to the
north. Evaporation did the rest.
It Is thus evident that much depends upon the
vagaries of the mighty, restless river. A year
or so ago congress provided funds for n study "of
a project to control It. Arthur P. Davis, director
of the reclamation service, department of tho In
terior, has just returned from a trip along the
lower river. Here are some of the things he
hns to bay regarding the Hotildcr dam project:
"For years we have measured Ihe water that
flows down the Colorado. We know approximately
bow much of It there Is to stop. Our Hist task,
therefore, Is to llnd a dam site back of which
there are storage valleys huge enough to hold all
the flood waters that may come. The Grand canou
and Needles on the Santa Fe are about 230 miles
apart. Along Hie rher between them Is a chaos
of mountains and canons, almost uninhabited.
Two-thirds of the way down from the canon Is
the selected dam site in Iloulder canon.
Canon Narrow Here.
"The gash that Is iicie cut through the rock
clUTs Is but .'120 feet wide at the base and 7.00 feet
wide where the top of the dam would come. Thus
the canon Is no wider than that which was closed
by the Iloo'-evolt dam In Arizona, but the strut'
"lure must be noaily twice as high. This addi
tional height makes It an Incomparably moro
dlillcult task. It Is mote dllllcult, also, because
It must be put In the bed of u much greater
htream. That stream must be diverted nnd Its bed
made dry for the woik. Dm lug Ihe spring months
the river Is at Hood and Is too powerful to be
dealt with. Then comes eight months of com
paratively low water.
"It will be necessary to blast out tunnels around
the dnin site that will carry the normal How of
the river. Then, some spring, tho waters will be
diverted Into these tunnels. Hetween the time
of that diversion and the coming of high waters
the following spring the river bed will have to
he scraped to bedrock, probably a bundled feet
below the present waterllne, and that bedrock
will have to be built up with concrete, thus mak
ing the proper foundation for the greatstriicture.
It will be a race against time.
"Tho water will back up the Colorado nearly
n hundred miles. It will llnd Its level In ninny
canons leading off to ono side and tho other.
The Virgin liver Hows Into tho Colorado from tne
Nevada side above this dam site. This river opens
out In u wide valley. It will furnish the principal
Morago basin of the project. Two desert villages
In Nevada will be Inundnte'd. Hetween them they
represent but n dozen homes.
"Tho relief to bo afforded, Is 300 miles away
on tho lower reaches of tho stream. Near tho
border of Arizona, California and Mexico thero
are extensive areas of desert land which, with
water for Irrigation, may ho transformed to what
are probably the most productive farms in tho
United States. In the Colorado desert, In Cal
ifornia, 400.000 acres of this land, below sea level,
has nlrendy -been prlvntely reclaimed and Is oc
cupied. There nro other lesser valleys along the
lower river on either side.
"All tbeso projects nro Interfered with, hy the
fact Unit the Colorado Is given to bugo Hoods In
tho upiing, but nms quite low at other Keasons.
It furnishes either not enough water or too much.
While the desert Is parched all about great floods
run Into the bea unused.
"The primary purpose Is to ns'e nil this watei
and make It create wealth for the nation. Thero
Is, however, another purpose. The lower Col
orado has become a menace. Like other such
Mreams It has hullt for Itself out of sediment a
trough that Is hundreds of feet above some of
tho hiirroiindlnir country. Whenever there Is
Hood there Is danger of breaking out of thul
trough. It did so once ten years ago nnd It re
quired n most frenzied light to stop It. There
Is an area In southern California as big as Dela
ware that might bo submerged. The imperial
valley might he wiped out. We must either con
trol the How of the Colorado or build a system of
levees that must he watched and built hlghet
through all time. If this latter project were ad
visable from an engineering standpoint It would
be next to Impossible of actual accomplishment
because much of the area requiring leees Is In
Mexico and lnternaUonal co-operation would be
"The canal which now waters Imperial valley
runs partly through Mexico. The reclamation
service plan Is to substitute an nll-Amerlcan canal
to take the water out higher up, to run a ditch
at a higher level that will double the area of Ir
rigable lands In Imperial valley. The dam for
this diversion Is already built. It Is Uio Liiguna
dam, above Yunia. Already It Is diverting water

In this section, m 1.000,000 acres would make
homes for 50,000 families. The manner of Its
cultivation Is Intensive. It Is the most nearly
tropical corner of the nation.
Great Electrical Power.
"The electrical power developed would be ver.v
large. When this reservoir Is filled there will he
a column of water r.00 feet high with the pressure,
of this gieat artificial lake back of It. A liver j
of water will be constantly Howlng from beneath i
the dam. It will have the force of that fiUO feet
of pievsiire. It can he set to turning as many
tuibltics as It may be piolitahle to turn. It can j
be generated economically that It can be fur
ulshed at prices that will be surprisingly low.1
The only material problem will be transmission ,
lines. It Is long dlstunces to any editors or pop
ulation. Mines will, of course, he considerable '
consume! s. With cheap power now uses will de
velop. "Very satisfactory results In power generation
have been seemed at the Itoosovolt dam. The
advantages of these projects In the Southwest
are many. Down there they Irrigate summer and
winter and so thero Is n constant How of water
through the dam. At the projects further north
the water runs but jmrt of the year. There tiro
no problems of Ice, none of frozen ground, frozen
pipes In the Southwest. The electricity almost
makes Itself every day In the year.
"At present we are bung up on tho snag of
flpdlng the proper bedrock as a foundation for
our dam. We aro boring holes In the bottom of
the river with diamond drills In search of bed
rock. We bnve not yet found It at the site which
was our Hist choice.
"As to the cost, It will be large. Estimates ns
yet are little more than guesses. There nro
guesses that range from ? 10,000,000 to ?7.",()00.000
for dlffcietit designs with different assumptions.
"Of course the theory Is that In tho long run
these reclamntlon projects cost the taxpayer noth
ing at all, The government ndvances the money
for building them, but It Is charged up against
tho lands benefited and every cenr Is pnld back
by those who use the water. The construction
money Is merely loaned to tho settler to bo re
turned In Installments covering a period of twenty
years. Three-fourths of the land benefited by tills
project Is olrendy privately owned. Tho govern
ment will ho asked to ndvance or.ly tho money
that would bo the shuro of the lands that are
still owned by Uio Indians. Thus It will havo to
Hnnnco but about one-fourth of the project. Thus
the reservoir will pny for Itself. Tho land that
It Irrigates will over night bo worth 5100 an acre.
Tho IncrcnFcd wealth and production of tho South
west will be, an element of profit In Uio future
which will benefit tho entire nation."
