' WASHINGTON , D. C. , Oct 9. )
Senator Stewart , of Nevada , who has been
investigating the subject of the Irrigation of
the arid plains of the west , northwest and
southwest the past summer with the senate
committee , and who is expected to lead in
the debates on this subject when It oomes be
fore congress , gives some points In tnU con
nection which uro of direct Interest to BKC
readers. He says :
"Tho problem on the plains Is ono of sup
plementing the rainfall. A permanent ad
justment will not bo effected by wells , however -
over numerous. They must , however , bo the
uourco of most of the small storage with
which the Dakota and other farmers on the
plains will meet the present deficiency of
yearly rainfall. Well water is not always
applicable to irrigation purposes , and Major
Powell advises that It .always should bo
allowed to stand In small ponds ,
gathering the correcting and enriching
ing "qualities ( for land use ) which
the microbe nnd other microscopic life always
breeds. Evcryvhcre , too , on the plains , In
the DnhUtas as elsewhere , the farmer can
construct small ponds and basins. Ono aero
of water ten foot deep will supply the de
ficiency in rainfall fpr most years on 100
ncrcs. . Percolation or seepage may lurgol.y
bo prevented when necessary by littering
gypsum spar of some clays broken into
powder through the water unt'l ' they settle
and coat the bottom. Again , an ordinary
ditch , according to the nature of the soils ,
will subirrigato by seepage from HOO to 1,000
feet on either nldu of Itself. Whut will uu
acre reservoir do then 1
"I advise our Dakota friends to combine.
If tlio farmers where Ho wing waters are ob
tainable , or oven where waters nro In
sufllcient quantity to rise nearly to the sur
face , would unite together , say these of ono
section , and would made suitable choice of a
locution for u well and basin , they could
bv thus combining their means sink n well
largo.oough In capacity and by its overflow
to till a reservoir in size amply sufficient for
their own needs. It seems to bo well under-
Blood that congress should consider the
propriety of appropriating a reasonable sum
for the examination of water supplies in the
plains region above nnd below ground , and
perhaps also it should bore a limited number
of oxpsrimental wells on public land for the
purpose of dcllnltuly determining the cost of
eaia wells , and the extent , If possible , of the
artesian ebo and How. "
Sem\jcr \ Stewart's plan of indication is J.h'o
only permanent system to supply tlio great
Dlains from 9" degrees iTO minutes tolOt do-
Brecs , or thu base of the Ho < ; klcs. It will bo
u great scheme of hydrogruph engineering ,
xvnlch will seek on the ono side so to store
the waters of the upper Missouri und the
sources of the Mississippi ns to'Agulate and
thereby prevent the disastrous Hoods
of tlio lower basin region , and
will at the sumo time afford abundant supply
fnr the feeding of ono or moro great canals
with their appropriate reservoir system , by
which not only irrigation will bo effected for
the great plains area , 800 inlleeostand ; | west
by TOO miles north nnd Eouth , but manufac
turing power nnd navigable capacity will
also bo secured.
" 1 see -no reason why there should not
eventually bo u navigable canal from the
upper Mississippi to the gulf of Mexico , ono ,
too , that will irrigate 50,000,000 ucroa of fer
tile land now largely iulo or given over tote
to the use of the broad-horned steer , nt the
rate of twenty acres per steer , " continued
the sanator. "Such land is not worth to-day
over $ L per acre. By the expenditure of the
same amount per acre of ? SO,000,000 it may
readily be made worth $10 per acre , or $500 ,
000.000 in all. 1 have no Idea of proposing
such measures in congress. Our good friends
of the cast and centre would roar too much
for that , but I may bo allowed to think that
under duo restrictions , and covering a roa-
sonublo period of time , it would prove a wise
expenditure of money. "
Although nearly all of the state headquar
ters of the Knights Templar will disband at
10 or 11 o'clock Thursday night and most of

WASHINGTON , Oct. 0. The'commi'ssion ap
pointed by the postmaster general throe
months ago to examine Into the needs of the
postal service at Chicago have reported at
great length. The commission ii convinced
the postal service of Chicago Is , nnd bus been
for years , inadequate to meet the needs of
the public , especially in the business sec
tions , and adds that the "public forbear
ance , considering the circumstances , is a
matter of surprise , "
Tlio report shows that the receipts at the
Chicago olllco during the fiscal year ending
JunoIiO , 1839 , amounted to2 , 781,80' . ' , an in
crease of 1S.7 per cent , , over the previous
year. The increase smco July 1 , 1S34 , bus
bedn regular and steady. Comparison is
made with the Now York , Philadelphia and
iJoston olllcos during the same period , by
which it is seen that in no cnse has the in
creases been so large as In Chicago. The
condition of the main postoflico and thu
branch ofllcos is considered at great length
and recommendations made for much needed
The report says the Chicago ofllco is the
next largest postoftico in the country. The
largo number of Important railroad lines
centering there makes it the largest distrib
uting point between the east and northwest
and west. Good , officiant service for Chicago
cage means bettor service for the vast sec
tion known ns the northwest. The commis
sion recommends the construction df an

flicy Manipulated Hntea.
CniOAOo , Oct. 9. rspocial Telegram to
Tun Bnn.1 The exposure of the wholesale
manipulation of rates by nil the Chicago
Missouri river roads has developed into a
gigantic farce. Every road readily ac
knowledges its own guilt while pointing the
thumb over Its shoulder at Its neighbor.c
There Is absolutely no attempt at denial of
guilt. The fact Is that unless heroic meas
ures are adopted by the Intor-stato Co m-
mcrco Hallway nssoclatloa none of the of
fending members will suffer In the least for
their wrong doing. Even In that association
the offending roads represent nearly or qulto
n majority of the votes. At nny rnto they
could easily control a majority , and It Is not
ut all likely they will flue themselves. The
records show that most of thorn are fined
enough by the associations now without
themselves becoming willing parties to the
mountain of fines which the Into
manipulations would pllo on them.
Over 25OUO , cars of manipulated
grain have now been located and the amount
may bo doubled before the Investigation is
ended. In case the punishments spccillod by
the mtor-stnto commerce net were strictly
applied the rends between them would have
to pay $123.000,030 , and some one would have
to serve n ? 50l)00 ) year term in the peniten-
tiar.y. the very enormity of the offenses malt
ing the offenders certain of immunity.
First and Seeon-l Cla s Ticket" .
CHICAGO , Oct. 0. [ Special Telegram to
THC Bun. ] All the divisions of the Western
Freight association met to-day , as did the
managers of the Intcr-Stnto Commerce Rail
way association. Not a whisper of the mat
ter of which all were full was breathed ,
however. The managers especially fought
shy of the question. The main topic before
them was the growing abuse among western
lines of ulloxving passeneors holding second
class tickets nil the privileges , Including a
llrst class sleeping car , of those holding llrst
class tickets. It was shown that about 35
per cent of the whole passenger business was
being donq on second class tickets , and it
was deemed time to call a halt. I3y a unan
imous vote , subject to the approval of the
absent lines , it was decided to attempt n re
form and separate distinctly the privileges of
those riding on lirst nmV second class tickets.
The Milwaukee Indlctctl.
ST. PAUL , Oct. 9. The Milwaukee road
has boon indicted by the United States grand
Jury for violations of the inter-state com
merce law , and the trial of the cause will beef
of great importance , testing , as it will , the
right of railroads to charge higher rates to
interior towns than to St. Paul and Minne
apolis. There is also involved in the ques
tion hundreds of thousands of revenue to
the railroads. It is said that Fairbault , ut
the Instance of which town this indictment
was secured , pays the railroads 8100,000 a
year in freight rates. The "Soo road" was
not indicted because there was no case
against it. The trial of the Milwaukee case
will demonstrate the right or railroad com
panies to ignore the long unit short haul clause
of the inter-state law in instances where it
effects the roads' revenue.

hig from hero slnco September 27. Mrs.
Bortcll , wife of C. 12. Bortoll , head salesman
of the stockyards exchange , has also been
missing since September ! )0 ) , and there is no
doubt In the in I nils of Mrs. Green nnd Mr.
Bortell tlut the erring husband nnd wife
have gene together.
A short time before ho loft homo Green
spoke to hitt wife about his falling health ,
saying that ho thought ho had bettor take a
run over to his ranch for a little vacation.
Mrs. Green , not suspecting that her husband
was about to leave her for peed , urged
him to go. A week ago
last Friday ho kissed his wife
and children good-bye nnd started for
Cheyonno. Two days later a letter was re
ceived from him in Omaha tolling of his
great improvement in health slnco leaving
Chicago. That was the last that bis wife
has hoard of him.
Two days after Green had departed for
Che.\cmio and his health , Bortoll came home
in the evening to find his wife gene and a
note lying on the table stating that s'io had
gdno to Indianapolis to visit n cousin. She
did not go there , and Bortoll , suspoiMlng
that , things wnre not exactly as they should
bo , instituted r > search , and found in ono ot
his wife's dresses u note addressed to his
wife in Green's handwriting , headed "Mv
Dearest Love , " and signed "Yours ever ,
Emmet. "
Mrs. Green , who wns soon at hcrliomolnst
night , said those things in conjunction with
other circumstances whleii had occurred
from time to time , loft no doubt that the
guilty couple hud gone together. . "I don't
blame Emmet so mudi , " said Mrs. Green ,
'ns ' 1 do Mrs. Bortoll. Hho has always tried
to come between my husband and nib , and
she 1ms done it at last. "
Green , according to his wife , wns a model
husband mid father , and scemert devoted
to his family , and the blow , so unex
pected , came upon her BO heavily
that she is almost prostrated. In
his letter from Orauhu Green sent to his wifn
the key to his box in the bunk deposit vaults.
In there BIO ! found a letter saying :
"I am discouraged. I made a promise yes
terday nnd shall not return. Bettor sell the
placo. I liave paid all debts and have no
money. "
By "the place" Green meant the house on
Prairie avenue , owned by him , which ho
transferred to Ins wife by a deed found la
the vault , nnd which is worth , his wife says ,
$10,000. Whcro the runaways are now
neither Mrs. Green nor Bortcll have any
