A measurement of flood water,
taken March .", Ill HI. at the outlet
of Huek lake reservoir, was found to

words, over 'J0.000 miner's inches.
Why tloiw .Mr. Howard propoc to

The government engineers were out

went direct to Heaver creek from
Huek lake ami made no report of wa

running water theie at that time.
Mr. .Howard i right the proposed
