NEED IS FOR MORE WATER
Superior Is a Qaaadary Over Methods
of fecarlag Eaonah of the
l.loald for All.
SUPERIOR. Neb.. March 30. (Special.)
Superior has lately been in quandry over
Ita water supply. The system of water
works In this city has been in about twelve
year. All the water la obtained from a
twenty-live -foot walled well and forced Into
the mains by the direct pressure system.
Last spring the water In the well began to
fall. The supply haa continually been
growing shorter until a month ago tb
council decided that seme action waa needed
at once. An expert wsa called here from
Lincoln and a leal waa almost cloaed with
blm to bdre numerous small wells, connect
them with the pumping and guarantee the
city an additional water aupply of 200,000
gallon a day at a cost of I1.7G0.
Complaint waa made by local partlea that
no chance wae given for bids. Thereupon
the deal waa euapended and blda were ad
vert laed for. These were opened at the
council meeting Friday night A local firm
offered t- dig a twenty-flvs-foot well forty
feet deep, with a one-foot brick wall, tor
$2,600. Thla was rejected as Impracticable.
The Lincoln expert withdrew his offer. Bod
ing that land on which to bore bla wells
could not be obtained. The council then
considered an ordinance which calls for
meters, to be placed on all hydrants. In
stores, hotels, baths, etc., and upon all taps
used for lawn sprinkling purposes, it ia the
belief of some of the council that enough
water la wasted under the blanket rate now
In force to aupply the city. The ordinance
was passed to Ha second reading. Practi
cally everyone In town uses city water and,
there being no wells to apeak of, the water
question la of vital Importance.

Oa Nortliera ParlSe Lake Is Farmed
Thirty Mile Long- aad Two
Miles Wide, Defylasr
ST. PAUL, March 30. Transcontinental
trsfflc by the northern routes continues to
be blocksded. The Northern Pacific's efforts
to transfer passengers across the lake
formed by the overflowing of the alouglia
near McKenile, N. D., have proven futile
and but little hope is held out for a re
sumption of business in the near future.
Reports from the Great Northern are to
the effect that their transcontinental trains,
which have heretofore been able to get
through with only a slight delay, are now
held up. by floods in the western portion
of North Dakota.
Just where the trouble te haa not been
definitely learned, but telegraphic reports
say that the Mouse river Is out of Its banks
at Mtnot, on that line, and numerous
bridges hsve been swept away. The Red
river ia also at floodtlde at Grand Forks,
N. D., but ao far as reported little dsmage
baa been done there.
Sltnatloa Kstremely Serious,
The eltuation of the Northern Pacific Is
extremely serious. Reports from McKenile
are to the effect that a lake thirty rolhs
long and two mllea wide haa formed and
the tracks are sixteen feet under wster,
or perhaps entirely washed out. Efforts
to transfer passengers across this lske have
not been auccessful.
The wind has been so high and thr -rater
ao rough that much danger has attended
ths attempt to transfer passenger in small
skiffs. A gasoline launch was put Into
aervice yesterday, but even this Isrger
craft waa found Inadequate. It la thouglit
that an entirely new track will have to be
built around thla gap In the road befcye
traffic can once more be carried on.
Passengers eastbound have been held at
Bismarck and no weatbound coast trains
have been started from St. Paul. A train
reached here thla morning bearing a num
ber of passengers who had been- success
fully ferried across the lake at McKenile
and they report the situation there ex
Fear a. Food Famine.
Aa no freight can be moved westward.
there la some fear that a famine in food
stuffs may result In Bismarck and Its
vicinity, ome of the Northern Psciflc
business has been transferred to the Bur
lington at Billings, Moat., and in that way
it ia hoped to open an avenue of communi
cation with the north coast cities. The
most optimistic of the railroad officials ars
Inclined to believe that it will be at least
ten days before through traffic can be re
established by the regular route.
A dispatch from Bismarck, N. D., re
ceived lata tonight says that railroad offl
dale there hope to have a train through
some time tonight. Paasengerj. mall and
baggage were today conveyed by wagon to
a neck of the temporary lake and there
ferried across with a gasoline launch. It
waa alow work In the teeth of a cold wind
that blew anow and aleet la the face of
the passengers, but many were willing to
brave the discomforts of the elements in
order to end the tedium of waiting.. Ties,
rails, etc., are being rushed to the lake and
a temporary track will be constructed with
as mucn speea as possible..
An Immense amount of : freight Is ac
cumulating at both enda of the washout
and unlets this Is quickly moved a great
lose will be entailed on ths railroad com
pany in addition to that occasioned by ths
