Call for FIT Bllllan? - -
Delegates to the National Irrigation con
gress set about to relieve the arid land
situation today when resolutions begin
ning with a request for "ample funds"
and ending with one for a fund of $5,000
000,000 were introduced.
The resolution asking for a, national 3
per cent bond issue of $6,OOO,O0O,OuO was in
troduced by the secretary of the bord of
control, Arthur Hooler of Spokane, it is
proposed to use this In five portions, Is
One billion dollars for drainage; 11.000,000,
000 for Irrigation; 11.000,000,000 for deep
waterways; $1,000,000,000 for good roads and
$1,000,000,000 for foreet preservation.
It Is asked that a committee present the
request to congress.
A resolution also was introduced planning
that here settlers of arid lands have been
deprived of the right to reclaim their lands
by the action of the reclamation service
in cutting off water rights such settlers
may gain tha right to their lands by. the
reclamation of one acre in their tracts by
means of a well.
Smith on Classlf Icatlen. i
George Otis Smith, dlreotor of the United
States geological survey, and Samuel II.
Lea, state engineer of South Dakota, made
the principal conservation arguments be
fore the National Irrigation congress to
day. Mr. Smith's subject was the classifica
tion of public lands, lie said:
The classification and valuation of coal
land is a special phase of public land work
to which the geological survey is giving
Increased attention. The geologic investi
gations of the last three field seasons have
not only furnished a knowledge of the
quantity and quality of the coal on the
public domain, but have rendered possi
ble the present policy of obtaining coal
prices for coal lands. The general land
offloe now depends on the geological sur
vey to furnish detailed valuations for
every forty acre tract of coal land that is
placed on the market. In the two and a
half months following the adoption bf the
revised scheme of valuation the reports to
the general land office pleased' to agri
cultural entry approximately 3,(00,000 ictes
In Colorado, Wyoming; and Montana and
placed sorting prices on nearly 400,000 acres
of coal land with an aggregate' valuation
of over $15,000,000.
"The price of government' oal land Is
now determined on the basis pf estimated
tonnage, the unit rate varying with the
tauallty of the coal from cent; to S cents
ton zor coai aepoait within fifteen miles
of a railroad. - The prlcjs . average less
than one-tenth the usual Royalty paid in
the, west. Yet this, conservative valuation
will more than double to average price
of public ooal .land. ,In exceptional oases
the prloe based on tonnago represents a
fifteen-fold Increase oven the. old minimum
price. It I oonceded . that this policy of
ummmm ine price on in quantity and qual
ity ot tb article acid -will ool encourage
purchase by speculators, but V maintain
that Uhe government valuation' will not
imped the disposition of the coal deposit
lor purpose of utilisation.. The real de
velopment of th West will 'be promoted,
not retarded. . The Increased -valuation of
the millions of aires of public coal land
must- result In' increased contribution to
the reclamation fund, and greater dobs!
bliltles for local utlllitlonv of the agricul
tural land through Irrigation.

Roelker's heart.
Todd denied portions of an Interview at
tilbuted to him, but said he did see a man
running and heard' commands to halt,
threats to fire and shots.
Before the shooting he (Todd) had seen
Lieutenant Roelker pass the guard room.
After the shooting, he said, Lieutenant
Roelker came into th guard room and
said: "My God, Archie. I've been shot."
The finding of tha bullet followed. The
witness had heard four shots fired. He
acknowledged having said he had often
wondered why he was not summoned. He
believed It was not his place to speak
until summoned, but said he had never
made any effort to make known to any
officer his possession of knowledge of the
events of Lieutenant Sutton's death.
Adams Asks for Gun.
Mr. Blrney took the witness In detail
over th event of the night. The running
figure, he Bald, was going from the
vicinity of the" camp toward the bridge
over College creek. After the shooting
he raw Lieutenants Adams and Osterman
in the room ot the' officer of the day. In
response to (juentions of Mr. Davit,, Todd
said that It wan Lieutenant Adams, who
asked tha ' witness ""If he had any snare
guns," saying there was trouble in th
camp and he wanted them for protection.
Osterman said nothing whatever. Two
shots preceded the first cry to halt, which
was not replied to, after the second cry,
"Halt, you are under arrest, or I'll shoot,"
there were two mord fchols fired after a
brief interval. Sergeant Mahoney was
sergeant ot the guard, and he aroused him
as soon aa he heapd the first two shots.
The other two shots had beer, fired before
Mahoney started lit the direction from
which th noise of the shots came. He had
gone only a short distance when witness
heard some one challenge Mahoney and tell
him the trouble was all over and that he
might a well return to hi room.
When th witness put on the desk the
bullet that struok Roelker, Lieutenants
Adams, Willing, Btvan and other were
In the room pf the officer of th . day.
Hoelker said nothing whatever as to how
or where he had been fhot and, the witness
averred, made no attempt to find out. Todd
said he did not hear until next morning
that Lieutenant Button had been shot. He
was not asked by any one if he knew any
thing of th trouble. The first time, wit
ness said, that any one had told him that
any information he had wa wanted was
wheu a newkpfcper man did so at Wake

Strang-e Coincidence Revealed When
Sun, Earth, Venns and Jupiter Mix.
Father tllcn-e Invites the PoMIr to
Look at th Stransr Slant
Throaa-h Crelshton t'nlvers
Ity Telescope.
Jupiter and Venus co-operated last night
to present a spectacle that might occur any
time, but Which is seldom seen In the
heavens by th inhabitants of th earth.
The people on Mars, If there are any, and
they are not too busy digging canals or
building airships,, also might observe a
similar occurrence if two planets happened
to get places in their orbit that would
throw Uiem on a line or in conjunction
a was th case . with on outer and one
Inner planet last evening, when Jupiter and
Venus attracted the attention of the world
tor a few minutes.
Now, th event that occurred last night
and the reasons for it were these: Jupitsr,
an outer planet, and Venus, an inner planet,
both turning in their respective orbits
around th sun on in a smaller orbit
than the earth's and the other in a larger
orbit came around on the same aide of the
earth, and owing to a certain inclination
of Uielr planes, they were observed ' from
this planet as being close together. They
j-eally were not very near each other nor
the earth, but they were seen at the same
time in the range ot a telescope, and that
Is all the significance there wa to their
It It not always that two planets can be
observed at the same time by gailng
through a telescope. Last night, however,
was on of those rare occasion. Tb two
satellites of th sun did not get Into a
direct line, a the unastromlcal thought.
They simply came to point In their two
orbits, where, although they were several
million miles apart, they were yet so close
together that they both fell within Hit
view of a telescope.
To fully understand th conditions that
brought about this extraordinary happening
it Is necessary to have a Clear conception
ot the true relation of the planets In the
celestial world. When the planets were
made, by the nebular hypothesis, the ring
theory, or any other theory that has been
advanced for their origination, they were
thrown Into space with a certain Initial ve
locity. Some went sailing out many mil
lions of miles from their place ot origin;
others did not go so far, and still others
fell closer to the mother body.
All Go Around the Snn.
Well, one of these planets, Venus, took
an orbit only something over a hundred
million miles from the sun. Then a few
millions beyond Venus the earth took up Its
course, and several million miles huyuiid
the earth Jupiter got in with a big orbit.
So that placed the planets with which
astronomers were concerned last night In
tha following order: sun, Venus, earth and
It Is easy, so astronomers say, for the
laymen to see how Jupiter and Venus
might never conie close enough together
to be seen In the same plane of a telescope.
The two planets could easily be seen on
the same side of the earth, but wide apart,
and this would pot permit the desired
sight I
But last night It happened that both ap
peared on the same side of the earth and
got rather intimate- with each other. As
tronomers throughout the country took
advantage of the occasion to show the
sight to many people . ho had never before
observed such a speotacle.
Prof. William J. Rlgge, of Crelghton uni
versity, had his observatory open tor mo
publlo and, beginning about 7:0 in th,
evening, he showed the planets to several
of the curious. They were plainly distin
guished shortly after the sun set. They
were In the west, and Venus, in the teles
cope,' appeared on the left. It was far
brighter than the outer planet. Shortly
before 1 o'clock this morning they were
nearer together than at any other tlmo
during the night.
While the two planet were going
through this unusual occurrence they
were not close enough to the earth to
cause a preceptlble displacement of this
planet in its orbit. Venus was 160.000,
000 miles away, and Jupiter was distant
600,000,000 miles.
