FARMERS HEAR EXPERTS ON WATER (Continued fju>m Fkont Paoei Tho papor delivered by President Mnrnoch appears 'in another part of this issue. Mr. D. 13. Howling of the Dominion Geological Survey, spoko next. Ho is tho man who went to f work when tho LothbrldRO Board of Trade set out to help solvo tho diffl-cuity of tho farmers in connection with farm wator supplies. Through his efforts the government Is gathering all tho information available on well water supplies In Southern Alberta, nml also have two drilling rigs busy east of the city endeavoring to carry out further tests, and with some success. The southeastern part of tho province has been found to be underlaid with underground water supplied over a great area which when tapped, result in artesian wells. Tills area is being tested, and special attention Is now being paid to reducing tho cost of drilling to bring it within the average farmer'B~rcach to drill a depth of 700 or 800 feet at which depth the water may bo found. Mr. Dowling it was, who put forth the suggestion that every well driller should be forced to submit a log of each well ho drills in order that all Information mny be gathered together and made available for tho farmers. Mr. Dowling's address in full will appear tomorrow. Other papers given this morning were by F. II. Peters, commissioner of Irrigation for the Dominion, who spoke on the "prospect for water supply by percolation from irrigation development." and by A. S. Dawson, chief engineer of the C. P.

Prof. Murray's Report The following is a letter received by the Board of Trade from Prof. Murray, Saskatchewan university, who was invited to attend the conference on water Bupply; The question of water supply is a matter of vital importance to Western Canada. I regret that it will be impossible for me to be present at your meeting on the 22nd. I am sending you a copy of the report presented to the Advisory Council for Scientific and Industrial Research. At the first meeting of this council this matter was brought up and at the second meeting in January of this year a committee was^appointed consisting of Dr. Adams', professor of geology and dean of the faculty, of applied science, McGill university; Mr. Ross, an engineer of Montreal, and myself The report of the committee is enclosed. Wo made very careful enquiries as to tho possibility of securing an adequate supply of artesian water for tho northwest. We got very valuable information from a number of persons, possibly the most important came from Mr. Dowling, who, I believe, has promised to be present at your conferences* and to give a paper. The conclusions of our investigations wero that, except for a considerable district in Southern Alberta, it'Js impossible to secure from arto-sion wells, water for a large territory in tho northwest. It Is also possible that the district along the railways from Saskatoon to Edmonton might-yield! artesian wator. Briefly, tho difficulty seems to bo this; The strata underlying Western Canada are badly flexed, broken and folded at the foothills of the Rocky mountains, so that all water" from tho mountains follows the cracks of these strata to tho sources of tho rivers of the territories. Further, it appears that deep borings roach salt wator. This is said to bo duo to tho fact that tho underlying stratum Is higher at tho eastern boundary near Hudson's bay than it Is in tho west. Llko a saucer It holds within it the Bait water from an earlier period and until that stratum is pierced it will be im possible to secure othor water. It Is, however, impossible ., to bring the underlying wator up through tho salt water. The conclusion that we came to was that this large, territory must depend upon surface accumulations for its water supply,i These accumulations in lakes !ind.,'ponUa, some of them artificial, may bo carried underground for a' short distance and by tapping those underground chnnnols certain communities may receive water.

The attendance of grain men wob very large. The meeting was called for the purpose of securing from the trade expression of opinion as to how this bundling of crop could host be conducted under war conditions, and, secondly, mainly for tho benefit of tho members of the commission from tho oast, who are not familiar with tho operators of the grain trado. Torminal elovator men and representatives of hospital and lino houses wero hoard and promised to co-oporato in every wuy possible with the objects of the board, but demanded security of trade. Few suggestions as to pricu regulations wero forthcoming. W. L. Best, C. B. Pipor, J. Rathwoll < of Mooso Jaw; W. L. Parish, M.P.P., Robert Evans and F. O. Fowler wero among thoso who addressed tho board. Mr. Host represented tho Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Firemen. Tlioy wanted to know how much It cost tho public for all this "oiling" of tho grain trade, and if tho business could not bo carried on botwoen tho producer and manufacturer'With loss expensive and loss elaborate machlflw ory.- Members of tho grain exchango tooa the stand that it was impossible lo couduot tho trado properly in any othor way than it is being conducted nt present. 15107801 ;
