In presenting his Juno rjnport to

Speaking of the month of Juno the
report says:
The usunl routine work has been
carried on with n full force under
vury favoralilo weather conditions.
The construction work has beou car
ried on from Camps 5. , 7, S and 9.
and has bean confined prlncfpally to
the lateral system and struct mi un
der the feod canal; lateral system un
der tho Winter canal: lateral system
undor main canal from reservoir:
Rull Creek dam and spillway and
Tumnlo dam and outlet works.
The Scinl-Anmiiil Ileiort.
Tho report for tho half year takw
up tho several departments and fea
tures of tho work beginning with th
clerical, accounting and purchasing
Of this It says:
During Juno in the clerical and ac
counting department several changes
took place In the organization a
several of tho timekeepers and sten
ographers resigned to take up more
permanent positions. Tho remaining
force, however, being now fully or
ganized and well acquainted with
their work will bo able to take care
of the enormous amount of work
necessary to carry on operations.
During tho month S50 letters were
written; 10 advertisements sent out.
, and miscellaneous purchases were
made for merchandise covering 106
purchnse orders and, the prenaratlon
of 110 purchase vouchers. Tho pay
ment of tho men on payroll and tlmo
check rolls aggregated a total of 508
men, 335 of whom were on tho reg
ular payroll at tho end of tho month,
and 173 to whom were Issued time
checks during the month. The gross
amount earned by payroll during tho
month was $33,79-1.78, deductions
were, however, made to the amount
of $7,345.61, making the total
amount paid during tho month for
labor alone $16,449.17. At tho
close of Juno thero were on tho pay
roll 335 men and 177 head of horses.
During tho month 18379 meals
were served at an average cost uf
21.31 cents each. Whllo this cost
may appear rather low, we are pleas
ed to advise that tho messes are fav
oring the men with a high claw meal,
and no complaints have been register
ed. Thls-ts probably due to the fact
that i all purchases are made from
wholesalers In Portland at a mini
mum coat, and also to the fact that,
all the cooks at tho present tlmo aro
very economical and take special
pride In serving a high class meal
at a minimum cost. During tho year
1914 up to June 30th, we have sorv
ed 73162 meals In our messes at an
average cost of 21.89 cents.
. Tumnlo Dam.
At Tumalo Dam tho work during
June has consisted principally of
building an earth embankment and
placing rip rap on the two sides of
the dam, excavating the tunnol an!
bringing tho core wall up to tho
necessary height to facilitate sluicing
operations In the dam. The hauling
of earth and gravel material from
the barrow pit by moans of dump
wagons and teams has proven nul'o
tatlsfactory. 14.000 cubic yards of
earth was ulaced In the embankment
during June at a cost of 28.3 cents)
per cubic yard. This cost Incliuta
all work In the barrow pit. Including
the steam shovel, hauling, placing,
and sluicing and distributing tho ma-1
terlal In the dam embankment. The
embankment proper Is now about 4 J
per cent completed. A very limited
amount of rip rap was placed during
June, as It has been deemqd advlab'n t
to aeiny ineso operations unui wio
dam Is further advanced, whon the
rln rap can be placed In looser o'sn
tltles at a reduced unit price. Only
138 cubic yards wsb placed at an av
erage cost of $1.25 per eublc yard,
Work from January 1st, 1914, to
July 1st, 1914.
Clerical, accounting and mirchn
ing department. In this department
for this period an pnormou amount
of work was turned out with a com
paratively small force. The organi
zation In charge of this work consists
of one chief clerk, a bookkeeper, ono
storekeeper, who also has charge of
all equipment and supplies, and two
stenographers, one of whom attends
to the correspondence and filing,
while tho other is engaged In writing
vouchers and a small amount of cor
respondence. These men are now all well trained
and as a result the maximum amount
of work Is produced through a mini
mum of effort. During tho first per.
lod of 1914 all the work In connec
tion with the purchasing and account
ing necossary to establish camps for
approximately 350 men has been dis
posed off: the equipment record has
beep brought to date, and the system
of charging tho deprecation on
equipment has been changed to a sys
tem of oharglng all equipment direct
to the features upon which thov are
used: about 4800 letters were written
during this period: 1985 pay rhecks
were written aggregating approxi
mately $65,000: 129 offlc'al photo
graphs were taken: 39 advertise
ments for inercandise and equipment
was sent out, and 426 purchase or
ders were issued and placed over this
period. Some of the most Import
ant purchases for tho papt six montht
may be enumerated us follows. About
30,000 pounds of beef, three carloads
of groceries. 200 barrels of flour were
purposed for tho messes at the var
ious cumps, and 68 live pigs were
also obtained and distributed among
tho vnrlous camps to bo fattened by
tho refuse from tho camps, and sub
sequently killed for meat

Many Mupt Made.
Tho hydrogrnphs of Tumnlo Creok
hove been kept up to date, likewise
tho topographic and land classifica
tion sheets. Maps have been made f
tho Project showing ull prlnolpn'
roads, canals, dams, nnd towns, in
cluding 1-nldlaw, Bend. Deschuti
and Cllne Falls. Other maps luuo
also been prepared showing tho var

been divided. Progress profiles of
tho construction of tho feed canal,
main canal from reservoir havo nlso
been prepared monthly. In addition
to the other tracings mentioned III
has been necessary to design lnur
wooden bridges.

Tho construction of the new Stntoj
road around the east sldo of the res
ervoir wns commenced during tho j
latter part of March, and at the pres

calls for a roadway passing over tho
Tumnlo dam at the north end of the
reservoir and the Butl Creek dam and
by-pass at the southern end of tho,
reservoir. Tho Dull Creek dam at
tho present time Is practically com

spillway is now In condition to bo
opened for traffic. Tho roadway from

Does Prohibi
tion Fulfill Its
Thinking people of every
religious creed nnd political
belief should givo earnest
heed to tho expressions of
opinion from eminent di
vines, educators, editors,
governors, judges, legisla
tors, and others prominent
in every walk of life, who
havo publicly voiced their
sentiments concerning pro
hibition in worda similar to
"Prohibition drives under
ground tho mischief which
it seeks to cure, making it
more diflicult to deal with
the evil and impossible to
regulate tho trade." Bishop
Hall, Vermont
"Prohibition has been dis
astrous to the causo of tem
perance." Bishop Clark,
Rhode Island.
These men are sinccro and
conscientious. They dcploro
drunkenness and cry against
it as a great evil. Who, in
deed, doea not7 Yet they
know from observation and
experience, that prohibition
does not put a check upon
intemperance but that, on
tho contrary, it gives rise
to evil even greater than
intemperance itself.

Hoforrlng to the cost shoots at

or $05,(101.40 on tho distribution svi
torn; $108,804.20 on tho rood unnal.
and $13:i,IOP.n on tlto storage
works. The food eansl Is now all
completed so Hint no further nxpou
ill tu res ore estimated for that feu
turo. In connecllon with the tor
ngo works, however, It will probably
bo necossary to expend the following
iiuiotints on the vnrlous font tiros:
Tunnel, slintt, gates, ete.,
contplolo $18,180.00
Core wall 4.000.00

Total $50,715.00
On this renturn it total or $133,200.00
has boon expended lo
The total ostlmatcd ex
penditure on storage
works $189,015.00
Tho total estimated
amount ot this nxpen
dlttire was mndo orig
inally at $158,520.00
Plus land damages 59,170.00
Tolal $218,000.00
I.esvlng thus a saving or $28,000
on storage works which may bo ap
plied on the distribution system.
From our cot sheets we find thoro
has been expended to date n total or
$331,447.00. Kstlmntetng that this
$57,000 will bo expended on the stor
age works and front $5000 to $0000
on tho Crater Crook work wo will
have approximately $57,000 more
that can bo expended during the next
six months on the distribution systnni
making n total of approximately
$122 000 that will be expended on
this ronturo.
The results or the construction
work on the distribution feature to
date nro very gratifying," Inasmuch
ns the work Is being accomplished
less than tho estimated so we are
very hopeful that the entire distri
bution system will be completed with
tho aufount or appropriation available.
