Is it Data you Want?
Mr. Ureen and party who are here
looking for reservoir sites for the
liovernment, informs the Alturas
1'laindealer that the greatest draw
back to be encountered Is a lack of
data of rain and snow fall in Modoc
ct unity. This Is very e'ntiil in
making out his report to the de
partment headquarter. To build
reservoirs the (Jovernment must
know that there will Is water to
fill them, for without water, re
straining dams would be useless and
a waste of money. Of course ieople
living here know that the precipita
tion of moisture is amply sufficient
to till any reservoirs that may be
constructed, but we have uo means
tif proving the fact to the Govern
ment. Another thing that milltatta
against us at this tlne is the light v
fall of snow on the Warner range of
tnouutains. We have lived In Modoc,
twenty year, says the Flalndealer
and during that time have never
witnessed so little snow in the moun
tains at this time of the year. Most
of the precipitation has been in the
form of rain and this has' all been
absorbed by the dry ground, very
little having passed off in t lie streams.
Mr. (ireen will only remain a short
time, but we understand a couple of
his assistants will remain until
spring. By that time we feel sure
that it will lie demonstrated that
the precipitation will lie ample tor
There is no lack of records of the
rain and snowfall In Lake County.
For the past tweuty years the U. S.
Department of Agriculture has had
a weather bureau station lu Lake
view, which has been conducted by
The Examiner. The records were
burned In l'.HK), but are 011 tile iu
Portland and Washington. Sluce
that time the records are ou file in
this otllce. Come up to Lake county
gentlemen and you can flud half a
dozen reservoir sites within 15 miles
