charged with some ecclesiastical irregular

a very uncomplimentary name. None of the

In Omitlm'it future.
Water power , irrigation ntul electric conkIng -
Ing were the topics discussed by the Sun
down club last night.
The banquet tables at the Mercer hotel
were surrounded uy nearly 100 of the wide
awake members of thu club , nnd when the
refreshments in both liquid and solid form
had been disposed of the club listened to seven
oral very Interesting addresses by gentlemen
Ex-.liulgo Joseph H. Clarkson presided ,
and , after stating that the subjects for dlselTt
cusslon would bo supplementary to the ad-
dross of Dr. George L. Miller upon the great
Platte river canal scheme at the preceding
meeting , ho Introduced Mr. Cleorgo K. Hunt
of Cheyenne , who is actively Interested in
the construction of several largo Irrigation
Mr. Hunt spoke at some length and very
entertainingly upon the great undeveloped
resources of tlio country between the
Hookies nnd the Missouri river , which
might bo reclaimed and made remarkably
productive. The arid belt , ho slid , includes
an area of over l" > ( ) , uo ; ) square miles , or
nearly one-third of the entire territory of the
United States. Adjoining this distinctively
nrid region there lay a long area of land that
was partially arid. Over this area , embrac
ing western fucbr.iska , there was almost suf-
Hcent rainfall to insure n full crop 1C the
water could bo held in reservoirs and prop
llcdcmptlon tor Arid I.nniU.
Mr. Hunt estimated that with a proper
system of irrigation : ioO,0)0,000 ( ) acres of arid
land might bo made productive. Tlio nrid
region ; would become oven more productive
than ; the land watered by rain , because the
crops would never bo retarded by cold , wet
weather. The farmer could let the water in
upon his crop at exactly the proper time and
Indo exactly the right amount.
The speaker held that with the thorough
development of the water supply for irriga
tion purposes the United States could riro-
duce enough food to supply the entire world.
A farmer could raise as much upon twenty
acres : by means of irrigation as ho could upon
101 without irrigation. Irrigated farms
rarely embraced moro than eighty acres , and
those who took charge of even less than that
succeeded . better. IIo hail seen land that
was worth but § ( i per acre before Irrigated
producing nn annual crop worth 51,000
per acre. True , this was in
California , and might not bo
considered a fair comparison , but it was a
common tiling to see irrigated land produce
from four to six times as much as that
which needed no irrigation. One great ben-
cllt to be derived from irrigation was the
fact that farmers would bo enabled to live
close together , thus overcoming tlio isola
tion and loneliness that formed ono of the
chief objections of rural life.
In closing , Mr. Hunt spread a beautiful
picture of coming prosperity for all this
great western country before the mental
vision of those present. Ho bolinved that
the once arid plains of thcso central western
states would yet become the very center of
population and political power , the garden
spot of the world. The address was heart
Value of u Wntor I'oivor.
Tlio next speaker was Mr. O. W. Crawford
of Gothenburg , a man who has been the
mainspring In the enterprise that con
structed a canal at Gothenburg nnd built a
factory there which employs nearly " 00 men.
Ho discussed in an eloquent and practical
manner the advantages of the canal scheme.
Ho said that they had only built a little
ditch twelve miles long , but it had given
them an abundance of power. They were
going to enlarge the ditch and get more
The Gothenburr ; canal has a fall at its
mouth of sixty feot. Mr. Crawford believed
that Gothenburg would become n largo
manufacturing town simply through the ad
vantages gained by this canal. If Gothen
burg could afford to build a canal , surely it
would pay Omaha to do the same. He spoke
of the wonderful power that had been do ]
vclopcd at Niagara falls , and said the same
opixn-tunltics lay within the reach of Omaha )
Mr. R. B. Howeli made a very neat and
effective address upon the ancient methods
of securing water power and irrigation.
Dr. S. D. Mercer was called out and offered
some practical and effective remarks , which
were received with much favor.
Then the subtlu fluid from which we secure
light and heat and power came in for its
share of discussion.
Wo do not fully know the source
Nor comprehend the vast domain
Of what wo call electric fon'o ,
Great nature's nerves of lightning chain.
But the members of the Sundown club
learned several now and valuable tilings
about tlio uses to which electricity may bo
applied. The attention of the club was di
rected to the work of an electric cooking
apparatus stationed near the center of the
dining room in full view of all present. The
electro-bakery was manipulated by Mr. .T. M.
Cooklni ; by Ulectrlclty.
Stretching along ono end of the dining
room upon a banner were tlio following
words calculated to be applied to the electric
cooking apparatus : "This is the culinary
implement that will bo used in the homes of
Omaha upon the completion of the great
Platte river canal. "
Mr. S. L. tt iley introduced Mr. Hill In a
few neat and appropriate remarks. The
electric oven exhibited was about eighteen
inches square. It was a wooden box lined
on tlio inside with asbestos and tin. A cur
rent of lifty volts was employed in doing the
cooking. It passed into the oven on a wire
and wound through resisting wires in tlio top
and bottom , producing heat enough in forty-
five minutes to cook a good sized turkey
thoroughly. The plan is to keep the oven
tightly closed for forty-live minutes while
the current is turned on and then permit the
accumulated heat to do the work slowly and
thoroughly. By that time the heat should
bo sufficient to cook the fowl in two hours.
With the same current passing through
small flat stoves cakes were cooked beauti
fully , water was brought to the boiling point ,
Hat irons were heated and curling irons ere
prepared for the fctnlnino toilet.
The cooking machine was thoroughly ex
plained , and the members of the elub went
homo to dream of trying lawsuits , selling
goods , writing up life insurance and pulling
political wires by electricity.

Judge Scott has written to the Douglas
county members explaining why such a law
should be enacted. Ho says that during the
past each successive legislature has enacted
laws and that in many instances tlio new
law fails to repeal tlio old. There tire- cases
where the law Is so vague and indcllnite
that It is impossible to construe tlio true
moaning of what is intended. By a careful
codification of the laws the judge Is of the
opinion that a great many conflicting
features can bo eliminated.
