OMAHA, April IS. 17(r.
Grain values opened steady and held strong
timing the cany part of the session,
atrcngthened by the liberal decrease in
storks, small northwest receipt and an
txpecled decrease in the world's visible sup
ply. Report of general good rains throughout
Netireaka and Kansas eased prices off
later, and selling became general.
Values were a trifle lower at the start,
but rallied on good support, only to ease
off later on selling whlcti was Induced by
the reports of a general rainfall through
out the drouth section.

CHICAGO. April IS. Small world hlp
ments and the prospect of decreased offer
ings from Argentina caused a firm close
in the wheat market today. The final quo
tation for the May option was 47e
higher. Corn was tUSc lower. Oats were
unchanged, and provisions were Mj'lOc
The wheat market opened easy because of
rains over the parts of Kansaa and Ne
braska which have been badly In heed of
moisture. Shorts covered esgerly on the
decline snd the market soon became firm.
Bullish sentiment continued to Increase on
the close of the session. The buying of
May developed that the new crop deliveries
had been oversold and ths early loasea
were more than recovered. Heavy covering
by shorts of July and September helped
tho bulge. It was estimated today that
the world's shipments for next week will
be about i.N'O.O'JO bu., against ll,64,iX bu.
for ths same week last year, and this
CRU?rd a firm selling feeling at the close
of the msrl'.et. May wheat opened Sfc'Sc
lower, at 81-V5)91T-t,c; sold between tlHc and
93mc and cloned at 9ZV4V3c. Clearances
of wheat and flour were equal to 244.C0O bu.
Primary receipts were Soi.nio bu. for the
last two days, sga'.nst 1, 460,0000 for the ssme
two days of last year. Minneapolis. Duluth
end Chicago reported receipts of 2SS cars,
againn Y.i cars last week, and 1.1J& cars
one year ago.
The corn market was comparatively
heavy. The opening was firm becauae of
the cont.nued small receipts, but prices soon
weakened under the offerings of tired
holders. Local traders also sold the July
option freely. The market stiffened a little
lute in ths day In sympathy with wheat,
but the close was weak. Msy corn opened
unchsnred to c lower st fcc; sold be
tween 66Ho and and closed at 6iVt
S".,c. local receipts were SSi cars, with 38
of contract grade. .
The oati market opened lower, because of
selling by commission houses snd pit trad
ers, but the market rallied quickly along
with wheat and the los wss recovered.
May oats opened unchanged to tS'ic; sold
between 53'c and and closed at 631c
Loral receipts were care.
The provisions msrket opened firm, be
cause of an advance of 10c In the price of
live hogs, and then eased off alightly frrttn
the top becaure of a poor demand for the
ceah product and on selling by local pack
era. At the close May pork was 10c higher,
at 81S10. Lard was lc hlsher. at 88.07'4.
Ribs were 74c higher, at W.V,.

" CATTLE Tha market was again bara of
uppllea. but that la to be expected on
Saturday. The receipts for the week have
been very lt;ht, -showing a considerable
falling off as compared with last week,
nd a decrease of over one-half aa com
pared with a year ago. Generally speak
ing, light receipts mean a stronger market,
but such was not the case this week. Un
favorable condltiona at eastern consuming
points, where people are refusing to buy
high priced meats,. gave the markets of the
Country a down hill movement that even
light receipts could not withstand. Not
only here, but at .every other market,
prices have broken badly on all kinds of
killing cattle.
A considerable, proportion of the cattle
received at this' point consisted of beef
teers, and as tbe season Is well sdvanced
the quality during the week waa very good
on an average. Prices were lower every
day during the first half of the week. On
Thursday and Friday the very light re
ceipts caused a halt in the decline, and at
tne same lime, put a little more lite into
the trade. Btllt. at the close of the week
heavy beef steers are fully 15c lower than
one week ago and bCg-mo lower than the
high time. Handy light cattle are lOfilSc
lower for the week, or 25(U35c lower than
the high time. The feeling la that the Im
mediate future of the market la dependent
entirely upon the question of receipts. If
light runs are the rule next week at the
leading markets of flie country, prices
could hardly fail to reset, but it Is very
evident that the consuming demand does
not require sny great number of cattle,
and with anything like liberal receipts
weak markets would be very likely to en
ue. Cows and heifers at the close of the
week are generally 10ifl6c lower, with the
medium kinds right around 25c lower than
a week ago. Common canners have shown
comparatively little change, as they were
already selling at rock bottom prices.
' Ktockers and feeders were In light supply
throughout the week, but there waa a
great plenty to supply the moderate de
mand. The bresk In fat cattle would nat
urally produce a weak feeling In the feeder
trade, but aa so few jtoraj cuttle were re
ceived, steady prices were generally main
tained. Quotations on esttle: Good to choice

were very light, even for the last day of
ths week. The market opened early in- the
morning and fairly active, with prices
fc'iilOc higher than yesterday. In fact a
guod share of the hogs sold 10c higher, the
bulk going at 85 60(05.65, aa against 85 40a
1 46 yesterday. The top today waa (6 46,
while the best price paid yesterday waa
86.524. Everything In sight was sold and
weighed up at an early hour In the morning.
The receipts of nogs this week, notwith
standing today's light run, have been fairly
liberal as compared with the previous Week,
but have been quite a little short of last
year's record. The market haa experienced
a good many changes. During the first
four days prices were steadily lower, the
bottom being touched on Thursday, when
the market was 3Sc lower than the close
of the previous week. The advance on
Friday and the still stronger prices psld
todsy leaves the market only about 80c
lower for the week.

SHEEP Receipts of sheep this morning
were very large, thirty care being reported

The receipts this week have been very
moderate, showing A very heavy falling
off aa compared with a year ago. While
the market has been alternately weak and
strong, there has been practically no
change ao far aa good wooled lambs are
concerned. Ia fact, at the close of the
week lambs are selling Just as high aa
they were one week ago. On tha other
hand, shorn sheep snd ewes have shown
more or less weakness, being luc, and In
some cases aa mu h as 2oc. lower thaa a
week ago. While the market haa not been
especially active, there haa, nevertheless,
b-en a fair demand, so that the moderate
recelpta have sold in reasonable season on
most days.
The country will understand that such
weakness as has been developed In the
market this week haa been due to the de
moralised condition of the eastern mutton
market consequent u;xn the light demand.
It would appear that business conditions
In the east have not been such ss to en
eenrage free buying of high-priced meats.
Still at the close of the week, with the
v'sthle supply of Colorado lambs greatly
reduced and with proaencUve moderate
reretpta, there la unquestionably a better
fueling to the trade and rredlctlona are
freely made that with the decrease In the

Arlsona Project Overlaps All Otbera
Plaas for Water Storage la
Colorado, Kaaeaa, Nebraska
ad Moataaa.
First among the many Irrigation schemes
planned by the government reclamation
ervlco Is the 8alt river project at Roose
velt, Arlt., where the largest or;lfl:lal ressr.
voir In the world Is being finished. Thla
atorsge dam Is 178 feet high and will Im
pound 1.2S4.000 acre-feet pf water, creating
a reservoir having an area of 18,800 acres
or 86.5 square miles. This ttructure will be
completed In 1909 and will regulate the sup
ply of water in the Salt river. Forty miles
be.ow the dam the water la to be diverted
by means of a low dam IrAo the mains of
k system of canals, one on each side of
ho river, and watering about 180.000 acres
of .and in tho vicinity of Phoenix and Mesa.
When the Roosevelt dam Is completed
everal thousand electrical horse-power will
be developed and utilised to pump additional
water from underground sources. A power
canal 18.6 miles long, having a capacity of
220 cubic feet a second, has already been
constructed and is now being used to de
velop a 4.400 electric horse-power which Is
utlllxed In the work of construction. The
lands under thla project situated In the
Salt river valley aurround Phoenix, the
capital of the territory. The valley has a
length east and west of about forty miles
and a width varylnc from fifteen to thirty
miles. The soil la an alluvial depoalt of
great fertility and adapted to the cultiva
tion of a wide variety of crops, including
those of the temperate and subtropical
Taaaellaa; tke Canyoa.
, A tunnel about 600 feet lone- has been
driven through the side walls of tha canyon
at the dam. In thla tunnel will be placed
alz gates to be used for sluicing purposes
and for regulating the flow of water In the
canals In the Salt river valley, about fifty
miles below. These gates, with their opera
ting mechanism, will weigh nearly 800,000
pounds and will be the largest ever con
structed to operate under the great pressure
of 100 pounds per square Inch. The pres
sure on each gate ia about 800.000 pounds.
With the reservoir full tho gates are capable
or discharging 10,000 cubic feet per second.
To carry tho water from the power canal
to the electrical power house an Inclined
penstock tunnel 630 feet long has been
driven. The available head of 220 feet, when
discharged through turbine water wheels
direct connected to electric generators, will
give several thousand electrical horse-power
which will be transmitted slaty miles away
to drive tho centrifugal pumps. It Is esti
mated that each horse-power ao developed
will pump water enough to Irrigate ten
acres of land. The entire electrical ap
paratus for this work waa furnished by
the General Electrio company. -
Magaltade of tke t'adertaklag.
For those who cannot visit the scenes of
operation It is difficult. Indeed, to grasp
the magnitude if this undertaking being
carried on by the government for the bene
fit of the people. There will be more than
600 miles of -main canal for distributing
the .water and at tbe lowest waterfall on
record the flood contained In the reservoir
wilt be sufficient to water tho erops over
an area of lit square miles for two and
one-half years. The work' was started three
years ago and will coat about 88,000.000. all
of which Is advanced by the government
without interest. Thla amount will
eventually be repaid by the farmers whose
lsnda are benefited. The Income which will
accrue from the sale of electric power will applied to tha oost and when the
outlay has been repaid to the government
the farmers will own the plant and share
the expenses pro rata.' The storage water
will make the desert, formerly supporting
only cacti and other hardy plants, blossom
as tha rose.
Haraeselns; Colorado River.
Another large Irrigation project Is the
diversion of the waters of the Colorado
river by means of a dam ten miles north
east of Tuna, Aria., Into two canals, one
on each aide of the river. In Arisona these
canala will irrigate all the bottom lands of
tho Colorado and Gila rivers, 84,000 acres
In round numbers, and in California the
bottom lands In the Tuma Indian reserva
tion of 17,000 acres, all tributary to the
Southern Pacific railroad. A complete sys
tem of levies to protect the bottom lands
from overflow la being constructed and a
pumping system to remove the surplug
water from the low-lying areas will be
utillxed later.
The Uncompahgre valley project in
Colorado, which Is something over half
completed, means the diversion of the
waters of the Gunnison river by means
of a tunnel 10.580 feet In length and
ten feet In diameter. This tunnel passes
under a high divide snd carries the water
to the valley,; where It will
be utilised for the reclamation of 150,000
acres of land.
The Minidoka project In Idaho provides
for the reclamation of 110,000 acres lying
oa both sides of the Snake river in south
ern Idaho. The works, which consist of
a large dam In the BnaAe river and. 130
mllea of main and branch canals-, ars com
pleted and available for this year. The
Payette-Bols scheme will reclaim 150,
000 acres In southwestern Idaho.
Kaaaas Plaaa.
The Garden City project in Kanaaa Is
an extensive pumping system which will
provided a supply of ' water to Irrigate
about 1.50 arrea situated near Deerfield In
southwestern Kansas. All the land under
this project Is rich prairie loam suitable
for all kinds of raln and vegetables.
Tbe proposed pumping plant is designed
for the recovery of underground waters
and Involves tha construction of twenty
three Separate pumping stations, each
driven by electricity f rem a central sta
tion located at Deerfteid. The electric
power will be supplied oy steam turbines
and alternators.
In Montana the Huntley project contem
plates the reclamation or 80,000 acres of
land located along tho Tellowstone in
the southeastern part of the state. Thla
ache ma Is about two-thirds completed.
There are three tunnels aggregating 2.450
feet in length. A special feature la the
pumping plant, near Ballantlne, which
utilises the power developed by a drop
of thirty-three feet In the main canal to
lift flfty-slx cubic feet per second of
water about fifty feet lo the high line
canaL The main canal Is about thirty-two
mllea long and the high canal about seven
miles long. The ultimate development of
the' Sun river project in this same state
will mean the discovery of 56,000 acres
of land tributary to the Sun river. The
Mitk river project will add about 150,000
acres mora to the lands reclaimed in lion
Una. Tbe Xartk Platte P reject.
Among the other large Irrigation schemes
In the west are the North Platte project la
Nebraska and Wyoming which a ill mean
the watering of nearly 40.O acres la these
two states. Tbe Truchee-Caraon project

in New Mexico and Texae Involves the con
struction of a storage dam 2SJ feet high
near Engle, N. M., across the Rio Grande
which will form a reservoir 175 feet deep
and forty miles long, with a storage ca
pacity of 1.000,000 acre-feet for the purpose
of raising water from the Missouri river to
Irrigate bench land which cannot be
reached by gravity systems. The Klamath
project In California and Oregon will re
claim 190.000 acres. The Belle-Fourch pro
ject In South Dakota will reclaim about
100.000 acres lying In the Black Hills re
gion. The Strawberry valley scheme In
Utah provides for the Irrigation of about
61.000 acres of land In "central Utah. The
Bhoahone project in Wyoming contemplates
tha diversion of a portion of the waters of
the Bhoahone snd the construction of a
dam at the head of the canyon through
which the river flows. The reservoir will
have a capacity of 4SS.O0O acre-feet and will
reclaim about 1 GO, 000 acres.
It la needless to say that the success of
these many mammoth irrigation schemes
depend upon electricity. Electric power
Is employed in the construction and but for
tho electricity, developed from tho water
power, to run the giant pump the greater
portion of these Irrigation projects would
be Impractical.
Skip Rivalry Service Loyalty
frosa Commaader to
In a private letter written by Lieutenant
Kenneth Castleman of Krnnicxy, flag lieu
tenant cf Admiral Thomae, a splendid
tribute Is paid to the "spirit of the fleet"
now at home ports In Paclflo water.
These extracts from the letter are repro
duced from the Louisville Courier-Journal.
"It was three month ago today that we
left Old Point. It haa been a wonderful
voyage and a fine test ef the endurance
and efficiency of the machinery In-
etallatlon of the fleet. For the most part
the machinery la in better shape today
than when we left Hampton Roads. I be
lieve this is due In a Targe measure to the
new blood In the engineering department.
I do not recall the exact figures, but am
sure that the average age of the sixteen
chief engineers of this reet does not ex
ceed thirty. Under the old regime this
average would would have been close to
fifty, and the ships would not be. I think,
in as good condition aa they' are today.
And I am an engineer, too! Instead of
old men brought up under absolute condi
tions, wearing perhaps uncansclousiy a
chip on the off shoulder, loyal to their
corps, to their chief, to their department
we have a lot of youngsters Instead with
tha spirit of the modern navy. The crav
ing for tha 'fitness.' the intense anxiety
to make good, no matter what the odds;
loyal to their captain, their ahip, their
division, their squadron, their fleet. They
have no staff chief, under the captain, to
divide their loyalty. They wear the chip
of no staff corps on their shoulders. They
are most loyal subjects of their depart
ments they are master of It; they have
to be In order to forge Into the chip's
chain of efficiency a aound and flawless
professionally, no matter what their per
sonal relations might be.
"Every day at noon the ship, among
other routine signals, hoist their coal ex
penditure. These are all taken down by
us, and when I go below to luncheon I
take a copy of this coal report with me.
Everybody In the mess wants to see It at
ence. It Is gone over, discussed, picked to
pieces, speculated about with unceasing
and unflagging interest. If the Minnesota
during tbe preceding twenty-four hours
has burned more coal than the Louisiana
or the Vermont or the Kansas, Its 18,000
ton sisters, or more coal than the wiseacres
of the mess think It should have burned,
the senior engineer has to defenl himself
and explain and apologise. The youngsters
in the mess "want to know," for. In addi
tion to the keenness of tbs rivalry with
other ships Is the Incentive of personal In
terest. Next week or next month or next
year any one of them might leuve his tur
ret or his seven-inch battery snd become
senior engineer. There Is co-operation
"Of course, there is great rivalry be
tween different portions of the battery,
between different divisions, between dif
ferent guns' crews of the same division.
The forward turret wants to beat the after
turret, perhaps the crews have a thousand
dollars a side on the result, but this rivalry
goes down before the loyalty to the ship,
before the desire to see the ship do well.
If the forward turret officer gets on to a
gadgett or a scheme that will cut a second
off if his loading Interval, the first thing
he does is to give it to his brother and
rival In ths after turret. And the most
wonderful part of it Is that the personal
relations of the two have nothing whatever
to do with It. If they were personal en
emies the professional co-operation and
spirit of mutual helpfulness would be Just
the same. Loyalty to the ship, the deslr
to see it win the trophy and fly the gun
nery pennant might account for all tb!.
The rivalry between ship Is very In
tense and the money prizes are large, but
the game does not stop there. Loyalty to
the fleet and service carries It farther. If
one ship gets something good, something
which will give It a pronounced advantage
over its competitors at record practice, H
officers not ony do not hid It from their
rivals, but they give It to them gladly,
cheerfully. Take it all in all, it is a very
remarkable spirit, this spirit of the fleet,
and It Is one that will make this fleet a
pretty hard nut for any opponent to crack.

Arguing for the removal of the obnoxious
billboard and the preservation of the sky
line for the cause of the masses, Clinton
Rogers Woodruff, vice president and sec
retary of the American Civic association,
writes In Th Craftsman:
"How can w make our cities In them
selves works of art If we permit the pro
fanation of the skyline and the elimination
of dignity through the unrestrained snd
unregulated use of the blllbosrd? Cities
sp.-nd tens and hundreds of thousands of
dollars for beautiful public buildings, for
parks and parkways, and playgrounds, and
then allow the bill poster to us them as
a background for his flaming advertise
ments. "Is It right. Is It fair to those who get
all their conceptions of beauty and art
through public means, to have the poster
placed "upon a parity with such undertak
ings? And yet what other conclusion can
the untutored mind reach than that both
are equally artistic, both are equally de
sirable, or. why should they be permitted
to continue In this luxtaposltlnn? Hav
we any right to talk of taking expensive
measure to tnak our cities beautiful so
long as w allow th unrestrained poster
In our streets and suburbs?
"This evil blight attacks the country as
well as the rlty. It leaves no part un
touched. Nothing Is eacred. If the sky
line of the city is disfigured, so la that of
the countryside. ' The billboards flaunt
their loud color, their ugly vulgsrity. their
frequently suggestive or Indecent pictures
and stupid caricatures In the face of every
passerby In city street and country lane,
and beside the railroad which skirts ths
Substantial farm or lovely country seat."
Mr. Woodruff also dlsfusse soma of th
mean being tried to eliminate the billboard
and speaking for himself, he declares:
"I must confess to a liklne for the boy- '
cott remedy. It has a practical advantage-
there are no provlking or perplexing de
lays, no court proceedings, no Injunctions,
no appeals. It Is neat, clean, unmistak
able to the one who knows best, and ef
fective. Not that I underestimate the valu
of th prohibitive ordinance and act of as
sembly, or tha great Influence of th tax
ing power becauae I believe In using every
leglttmats wespon In attacking an enemy
but the boycott la always on hand, and can
be applied without delay and without any
thought as to Its legality. All that Is neoes
aary la to make up your mind that thla
on thing I wIlP not do I will not deal
with any oae or use any article that re
sort to objectionable advertising."
