Of counia the stream was located as soon as the first Important discovery was made. All Hold creek shows pans of $10 to $100 , whllo the miners on Hunker eccclt , Henderson , Dominion , the big Salmon and the Stewart alt declare themselves satisfied with the oros- t > cct. Ono of the first men to strike ground on the Eldorado acid the very last man out of the Klondike country Is Atidrcw Olscn , better known as "The Hlg Swede.

( ? iieclal. ) It lias been ascertained that there ore a few Individuals living on the Slsseton reser vation who make a practice during the win ter season of going upon hogging expedi tions. much to the Injury of the entire state. They make regular trliis with teams and wagons into the southern part of the state and also Into adjacent portions of North Da- Icota and Minnesota. They tell n pitiful story of want and destitution on the reserva tion and ask Tor contributions of clothing , bedding , provisions or anything of value toil they can get. Some of these professional beggars are wcll-to-ilo , having comfortable buildings , small herds of cattle and Verses and are well able to take care of themselves. It Is related that ono enterprising vagabond hired a man to go along and drive the team for him , iind whenever a stop was made the driver would bo left sitting In the wagon whllo the other would go in and tell his story , saying the man In the wagon was In destitute circumstances , had a largo family to support , with nothing in the house for them to oat or wear , etc. On a recent oc casion a farmer , at whoso place they stopped , wont out and Interviewed the drlvcf , who was , of course , amazed to learn that ho was the ono In whoso behalf the appeal had been made. The Impostors are old-timers on the reservation , and there Is no doubt that they have been doing a thriving begging business for many years. I'liylii * ; Ui | on School T.ntiils. PIERRE , S.

( Special. ) The bill which has been Introduced Into cou- gicss by Delegate Ferguson to have the Unitel Sta'tcs grant to New Mexico now , without wiiltlng for statehood , the full quota of land duo for educational purposes , meets with approvul everywhere In the territory. It Is apparent from Interviews with these representative Now Mexicans that the popu lar enthusiasm 'In support of this measure Is far greater than oven the prospect of early iD-ImlwIon to full statehood could pceslbly arouec , under too circumstances us they ex ist at this time ; for whllo there Is much more opposition toJay i hrougbaut the territory to statehood than there was two years ago , there la practically unanimous sentiment in favor of this lanl concession act. It Is deemed wee ! , timely , expedient and Just. TOo Idea of asking congress to grant Hils extraor dinary relief was suggested by the fact , so forcibly brought to public attention by re cent Washington dlarotchcfl , that 'itoero ' Is no hope for New Mexico's admission at once. Accordingly , Delegate Fergusn has had re course to the next best endeavor under tuo circumstanced and asks now that all ot Hie public land which wouli , as la the cuolom and the law , bo donated ' : o the Hate of .Now Mexico when admitted , for the support of the various public educational Institut'ora ' , bo given to the territory immediately , tie (7jme to bo 'In lieu of any donation of land hereafter when Ibo territory becomes a state. In making this demand Delegate Fergu son mceU the eastern contingent lu congrcea opposing New Mexico's admission upon Ita own plan ot contention. Notwithstanding Illiteracy in Now Mexico has been reduced from 44.45 per cent < in 1890 to 21 per cent In 1S97 and 'ihat ' this territory , always ma ligned , despised anJi misrepresented by the c-astern press , now ranks above. Kentucky , Tennesroe , Alabama , Florida und several other states hi popular education , t.ieso east ern opponents of western progress persist ently declare that the people of Now 'Mexico ' are too Ignorant to become full fledged American citizens. Hut by Mils new demand upon congrcs'i ( Mr. Ferguson responds in ef fect : Grant it. Then lielp us out of our dilemma ; all i'a in our work of educating the youth of New Mexico ; give us this rea sonable aissurauco that some day wo may bo regarded as fit for the responsibilities of state government. And to quote the dole- gato'a own words : "Wo ftavo been kept out of the union for nearly fifty years because they siy wo are Ignorant. Then wihy not give us the means of educating ourselves , especially as wo ask only our own public land for that purpose ? " A etrong consideration in > favor of the measure In the fact that through the opera tions of Mao United States court of private land claims thousands of acres of choice ag ricultural lands have been thrown .pen to public entry , and tlio passage of th/s bill now would enable the territory to select good land , whereas , If this despicable policy ot the last fifty years Is continued by eon- grors , then the public land cf iho territory will bo otlll further culled over by sottlonj , the government will get the money there for and New 'Mexico's ' schools will get noth ing , and when the territory Is finuJly ad mitted as a etato her quo'a of public land for schools and public Institutions will con sist only of tno arid and worthless tracts.

( Special. ) Pueblo Is considerably agitated Juat at pres ent ovrr the reported cures that have lx on accomplished within the lost weak by o man named M. J. Landers. Ills method of pro cedure Is very largely the same PS that em ployed by Schlatter when In Denver. Lui- dcrs Is a farmer and came to Pueblo with his family about a month ago. The most ( imminent people that he has given attention are Alderman A. C. Scliafcr and John Holmes. Mr. Schafer was Injured at a fire on July 12 List by having his bnckbone dis located. Since that time up until last Wednesday ho has been unable to leave bin bed. Landers came to his ftcuse , treated him twlco and Mr. Schafer Is now attending to his business the same as before the ac cident. Mr. Holmes was for eighteen yearir an engineer cm the Santo Fo railroad. Four years ago ho was In a wreck at Florence , and since that tlmo has been an invalid. Illi condition had become so serious that his family had piactlcally given up all hopes of recovery , and he was recently told by a physician that ho would not live to exceed thirty days. Landers lias glv i him five treatments by merely laying his hands urion the affected portions of his body , and Holmes Is now In as good a condition , as a man of ' his ycxira could bo expected to be. I Landers Is decidedly reticent , charces nothing for his services , and very seriously objects to having hia name appear In print In ominnnHnnvlHl nnv flf Mm nllTPH lift Is credited with.

The afore-mentioned Instinct of thla human- acting beast seems to confidently assure him when the women talks or children of a household are nlono. iMr. Kenlon says he has frequently seen the lion when ho was repairing his fence , and says other ranch men have been within twenty-five yards ot the beast. It Is supposed that n lioness com panion i eposes In some cavern In the can yon , as the animals are known to go | u paira.

Ho spent many months In Wyo- Ing and Colorado and the result of his labors appeared In the report submitted to the sec retary of war a few weeks ago. He ex amined five Bjstems , three In Wyoming and two In Colorado. Ho gives thcso details : "Laramlo slto , near the town of Laramle , Wyo. , for storing the waters of the Larumle and Little Laramlo rivers and possibly of the North Platte and other streams. Avail able supply from the two Liramlcs , 40,000 aero feet ; estimated cost for storing -waters from the two Laramtes , $416,254,14 ; cost per aero foot , $70.05 ; water now needed ; cost of bringing North Platte Into basin , ios- slbly as much as $1,000.000 ; supply would add 323,000 aero feet to storage of reser voirs a d reduce the coat per acre foot to $343. "Sweetwater Slto Capacity , 32C.9G5 aero feet ; cost , $270,484.80 ; cost per acre foot. So coiita ; storage not yet urgently needed ; prob- oblo annual storage , when the stream Is fully utilized , will bo 1.000,000 aero feet ; cost per aero foot on this l > isls , $2.76.

"In case the national government should undertake the work of reservoir construction lu the wi\3t , " he says , "the Piny system would bo recommended for first considera tion In Wyoming. The water Is now urgently needed o id construction should proceed In the following order : Piny site drst , Cloud Peak second and Mko Ucsmet last. Thp work should cover three years , and the first appropriation should be $100.000. " Of the two sites examined In Colorado , the report says : "Tho South Platte In Colorado , capacity 11,320 acre feet , cost ? 340,000 ; cost per acr3 foot , $13.07. This site should reoolvo first consideration of the two examined In Cole rado. The water Is urgently needed. Con struction should take three years , and the first appropriation should be $200,000. "Tho Lowland slto , for storlUR witors from the Ills Thompson and Cache La Pou- dro rivers , capacity 4H.7I1 aero feet ; cost $202,106.34 ; cost per aero foot , 35.73 ; storage now needed. Complications with existing water rights render the project for govern ment construction ono of doubtful advisa bility. " This covers the sites recommended by Captain Chlttendcn , and inasmuch as an ap peal will bo made to congress by the rep resentatives from the two states to proceed on the lines laid down In the report , a fur ther reference to the findings of the captain will ba useful. RESERVOIRS AND FLOODS. "While It Is , perhaps , physically prac ticable to build reservoirs of sufficient ag gregate : capacity on the watershed of any stream , even so largo a stream as the Mis sissippi , as to exercise some Inlluenco In diminishing the height of floods , " he says , "tho great cost of such works as compared with the results to bo expected from them will always piohlblt their construction , un less It is called for by othpr and more direct causes. A general system of reservoirs In the arid regions sufficient to contain the I flow of the streams over what Is possible to draw from them dlicctly In Irrigation would , It Is believed , cause some reduction In the flood height of the Missouri river dur ing the Juno rise. The amount of this re duction would , of course , depend upon the distance of the section of river considered from the point of storage , and would dimin ish rapidly with nn increase of this dis tance. "Reservoir construction In the arid re gions of the west Is an Indispensable condi tion to the highest development of the auc tion. It can bo carried out only through public agencies. Private enterprise can never accomplish the work successfully. As between state and nation. It falls more prop erly under the domain of the latter. Reser voir construction by the general government need not In any way Involve government control of Irrigation works. Thece nhoulcl bo left In the hands of the states and of private Individuals under state laws. The govern ment should acquire full title and jurisdic tion to any site which it might Improve , and full right to the < ater necessary to fill the reservoir. It should bluld , own , maintain , and operate the works Itself , It should hold the fitored waters absolutely free to public use under the local regulations , subject only to the right to close the reservoir whenever flood protection or other emergency ehould require. "Tho total extent of a reservoir system In the arid regions which shall render availa ble the entire flow of the streams will not exceed 1,161.0 billion cubic feet. If the con struction of Much a system were to consume a century In time It would represent an an nual storage of about 11.6 billion cubic feet , or 260,800 acre feet. At $5.37 per aero foot this would cost $1,432,710 per annum. This amount , distributed among the seventeen elates and territories of the arid section , give an average annual expenditure In each of $81,277. The annual value of the stored water would return the original coat and maintenance In an average period of three years. " BACKING FOR THE PROJECT. Thu demand for government Irrigation works will be backed by the senator cad congressmen from almost every stateami territory west of the Mif&ourl river as the only possible solution of the Irrigation problem. In the meantime private enterprise Is not lagging and the work of reservoir con- 6-tructlcn - Is going on all over the arid region. About the greatest work of the kind Is that undertaken by the Lake Bonnevllle Water and Power company ? In t'thh , for which a contract has Just been alRB-cJ between the company and the stiSlet ' Uy this contract n quarter of a million jicrt of land arc segre gated for Irrigation by the company , which , In turn , undertakes ) thy construction of a plant which will cost "upwvird of $3,000,000. It will Include throorcat reservoirs and 720 miles of laterals nai canals. Kor ocvontcen miles through the Sovfer canyon the main canal will have to be'blftted out. For .labor alone $2,600,000 will bo" expended within the next two years. Work will bo beguo In Foo- ruary on the project. The lonils to be Irri gated are fertile table lands In Sovler acid Mllard ! counties , but too high for Irriga tion by any Inexpensive method. The ilkv tanco from the last reservoir to the first l.ind to be Irrigated U fourteen mllcu It I * expected that 2,500 moo will be employed on the worka and they will be completed by the end of 1S99. U will be the Inrgwt Irrlgatlra ajstoui In tlio world. The reservoir eltcs which have been- approved by the secretary of the Interior occttpy nearly thlrty-flve miles of the river and valley and have an area of more than thirty aquare miles. They 1mo i storage capacity of 700,000 ncrc feet or about 26,000,000,000 cubic feet , The two cunala leading from the reservoirs will bu thirty feet wide at the bottom , fifty feet wide at the top end ton feet deep and each cno will carry moro water than any river In Utah. ENTERPRISES UNDER WAY. In Colorado the greatest Irrigation enter prise now under wiy Is that of the Great Plains Storage company In Otero , Ilent and Prowers counties. This compnny , which Is backed by Mr. Searles. the sugar Wan , has a large force of men at work doubling the capacity of the Fort Lyon canal , which takes Its water from the Arkansas river near La Junta. The ditch Is being widened to sixty feet on the bottom. This will make nn enormous waterway nnd one capable ot taking the whole How ot the river at ordi nary times. When completed this will bo ouo of the greatest Irrigation schemes ever pro jected , having reservoirs with a surface of 13,000 acres. Jclm V. Farwcll of Chicago Is at .the . hold of a big Irrigation company that has Just proposed a large undertaking to the secre tary of the Interior. This is the Montezmr.a Canal company. The company proposes to build the necessary dltclic. ? , dams and res ervolrs to irrlgato the southern. Ute reser vatlou at Iqnaclo In this state. The com pany will charge $150,000 for the work of piopartng to Irrigate 10.000 acres and $10 - 000 a year afterward for maintenance. It will require a reservoir covering fifteen acres to Irrigate tea times as much of the ro.uvatlon. In San Juan county , New Mexico , the Anlmas Klvcr L/iml and Irrigation company will build two canals , one to be eighteen and the other twenty-two miles long. Moro than 94,000 acres of land wll bo Irrigated. In Delta , county , Colorado , a ditch ia being built to Irrigate 'tho ' lands of the North Fork country. It will bo twonty-ono miles ! ony. In Mesa county the Plateau Grand canal Is to bo constructed. It will be a high- line canal , forty miles loug , to water the lower Grand valley.1 In Wyoming 'tho Wyoming Development company la adding' ' to Its system near \Ylieatlaml. Its present system comprises three canals puinclent for 60,000 acres. No 1 Is thirty miles Ion ? twenty-five feet wide on the bottom and four fet > t deep lit the hcadirate.
