Wasiiixoo-ov May IB. The worlt of
rxnmininj' anil inapphif' the water
sources of the United States with
special reference to the artesian wells
of this western states is heitiff enrried
on steadily under charge of I
II. Newell of the jfeotoical sur-
vey. Mr. NeweM is now preparing
si suniinary of the more recent work
which will soon be ready for publica-
tion. The most interesting district
lies in eastern Colorado and western
Kansas. Here the ground slopes from
the west down to Hie east and there
are continual faults in the strata pre-
venting water from traveling for
any very great distance. Where
the strata are not faulted they are un-
dulating and wells sunk near the cen-
ter part of the long undulations usu-
ally tap water that has lloweil there
from each side of the undulation. Few
of these wells How but they can be
worked by windmills a niotire power
that is seldom exhausted in that
part of the country. These wells are
small and will irrigate only a few
acres at best. Mr. Newell thinks that
if the farmers there would try to culti-
vate only as much land around their
houses as they could irrigate by means
of their wells and devote the remain-
der of their farms to grazing or per-
haps to wheat occasionally they
would be far better on" than now.

customs so far this year amount to
u little over sn.10030.).) which is
nbout 31 000000 excess of the custom
receipts during the whole of the last
fiscal year. The internal revenue re-
ceipts this month to date aggregate
about $l'J.'r0!i000 as against SM71U-
J.T.' during the fiscal year 181U. The
best information obtainable as to tho
net result of the year's financial ope r-
utious is that even if the income tax-
law is permitted to remain as it is the
deficiency on .July 1 next will exceed
gr'i 000001) and if the law is declared
unconstitutional it may reach SUO-

Awful StorliM or Armenian Atrocities
I'rown by IntfMtlRiitloii
Coxhtaxiinoh.k May 15. The coin-
mission which has been investigating
the atrocities in Armenia visited the
devastated villages and arrived at
Jellygoo.an where 1-0 houses have
been burned. The people were shel-
tered in miserable houses.
Ample proof was found of the truth
of the stories told regarding the massa-
cre of the Armenians and the fact that
their bodies wen; thrown in largo num-
bers into a pit where the Turks en-
deavored to conceal their crime by pour-
ing barrels of petroleum upon the bod-
ies and setting fire to the oil. The
flames however failed to consume the
mas and a stream was dammed and di-
verted front its course in order to wash
away the half buriod bodies. Hut even
this' failed to obliterate t'..u terrible
evidence ntraiiiMt the Turku and tho
looal authorities wore compelled to re-
move the remains piecemeal. Tne vil-
lagers had removed the bulk of the
bodies anil interred them in conse-
crated ground before the arrival of the
Asa result of the investigation and
the reports the powers have submit
ted notes to the Turkish government
impressing upon the porte tho neces-
sity of promptly iiiau 'tiruting a scheme
for Armenian reforms which should in-

The mill was run by steam generated
in tin old eighty-horse power boiler
which it is reported had been con
demned by an inspector a few days be-
fore because the steam gauge failed to
record accurately the amount of steam
pressure. Thirteen men wore employed
in the mill Yesterday morning they
were busy at work when a belt broke
shutting down the operations. While
it was being repaired nobody paid
any attention to the boiler which
was making steam at a prodigious
rate for a hoi tire had been kindled
under it. .suddenly there came a
boom as of a cannon followed by a
cloud of steam dust and smoke which
rose high in the air. Pour of the vic-
tims were torn limb from limb their
remains scattered about the mill and
the immediate vicinity. The mill was
nlmost entirely demolished. Parts of
Hie boiler were thrown hundreds of
feet. The victims were horribly
mangled having their bonds crushed
to a Jelly ami being recognizable only
by their clothing. The dead workmen
were all married and hud families.
