to a confercneo with representatives
of the railway executives tho labor
boani made tho fiat announcement
that It will not consider any ques-
tion of wago reductions until the
controvcrales over questions of work
in? rules havo been settled."
The board also mado It plain that
"n Immonso amount of tlmo" will
bo required for tho adjustment of
inns controversies and tno pro-
mulgation of tho completo codo of
working rules. This was taken as
an Indication that wago reductions
could no possibly bo acted upon by
the board for months to come. Tho

road conferied with representatives
of tho railroad group dulng tho day
but nrotested that It Was "Just a
Vrtendly call." Although chiefs of
tie brotherhoods havo not arrived
" '"t there were several Informal
gatherings of union leaders.
Tho association of American Hall-
way Hxeeutlvos was In session this
afternoon It was strongly Indi-
cated by tho executives thnt they
would not recede from their attitude
that further wago cuts aro necessary
If the railroads aro to avoid finan-
cial disaster. Thn Impression was
prevalent that this attitude on tho
part of tho roads was to bo dis-
cussed at tho conference with tho
members of tho labor board.
Members of tho labor board who
refuse d to bo quoted unofficially
declared that tho statement of yes-
terday when It was slated that

'"We will do our own work but

It will cost $0800000 to put Spav-
inaw wntor In Tulsa's water mnlv.
No pump stations will bo required
between Spavinaw and tho city gato
nt Mohnwk as It will be entirely a
grnvlly flow. The cost of Spavinaw
water will bn approximately seven
cents a thousand gallons moie than
tho present supply. A gravity sys-
tem Is tho most economical to oper-
atn of uny system. Th'o proposed
conduit from Spavinaw 4o Tulsa will
furnish a maximum supply ot
000000 gallons dally which Is th
estimated consumption of Tulsa 2-'
years hence. Thn cntlro project
ohould bo oomplcted within two
years after tho ronlrnc.t Is let.
Theso facts together with many
others equally interesting wero
given to Tulsans for tho first time
at tho meeting nt tho high' school
auditorium Tuesday night when tho
report of engineers J. n Trammeli
und W. H. Holway wns read to
about 1000 Interested citizens men
nnd women. Tho report read and
explained by Trammeli was ono ot
tho clenrent most complete and most
concise documents that has over
been presented In Tulsa.
Nn Delnll Oicrlookecl
No rtetnll wns overlooked. With
tho ntd of a largo map Trammeli
explained to tho uudlenco thnt tltan
Is a drop of 102 feet from Spavinaw
to Mohawk sufficient to insure a
bountiful supply water by gravity at
all times With n bead ot Id 000-
000000 gallons of water at tho Spav-
inaw Tulsa need novor fear u wator
shortage he slated.
Only ono tunnel Is neceaaary for
the conduit It Is to .bo built through
it high rldgo of foothills near tho
little town of Tlawah. Tho cost to
pump tho water over this hill would
lie too extravagant Trammoll ex-
plained and would rnusa un Inter-
ruption In tho gravity flow that
would Incur a heavy Increaso In op-
erating expenses during tho years
to come. A gravity lino well con-
structed needs virtually no attention y
ha said. Tho holo through this tun-
nel is to he (10 Inches In diameter
which In sufficient to allow a flow
for a clly ot 1000000 population.
The conduit is to bo smaller from
the tunnel cast and from tho tun-
nel west but according to the en-
gineers even though' Tulsa might
ncod larger lines ut soma tlmo In
tho distant future. It doubtless will
never be nocessary to build another
tunnel or enlarge this ono
r.llinliialo Pump Station!
In a report by unothor engineer
on tho Spavlnnw project two years
ago It wait recommended that threo
pump stations bo operated by
a hydro-electrlo plant nt tho dam.
To follow such a recommendation
would substantially Increase the op-
erating cost of tho project mid inaku
necessary the functioning of pump-
ing muchlnory at all times day and
night the speaker pointed out.
Tho report read Tuesday night
contemplates tho building of a pump
station at Mohawk by which thn
uuter which roaches that point by
gravity may lu elevated Into a mam-
moth rrservuir of xufficlent slzo tu
Umy the city with water for 30

Howover such occasions would bu
rare and under ordinary conditions
water would flow Into and out ut
this reservoir continuously. If thu
Hpavlnaw should becomu turbulent
because of ixtru heavy rains the
valve could bo turned and water
used from the rtnervolr until tho
turbulence disappeared Trammeli
According to gauges taken from
January 1 1921 to October 16 1921
the average dally fluw of water 111
the Hpavlnaw was 282000000 gal-

The ilittii on Spavinaw should bo
completed within 12 months after
the contract Is lot according to tho
report and tho conduit should bo
luld In 1)1 months. At uny rata
Trammoll declared It should requtr
not more man two years to complete
tho entlro project. Ah many us 10
separate contractu could bo let fir
