PROGRESS IN IRRIGATION.
The Tribune desires most heartily to
join In the congratulations which the
public may take to Itself upon the as
surances that all seems to be safe at
the Washington end for Utah irrigation
enterprises. The return of Mr. F. S.
Richards adds word to tho assurances
that were wired, of the favorable effect
which his representations, and those of
Mr. "West of the Arid Land Fund Re
clamation Commission, In advocacy of
the irrigation work in tho State, had
upon the officials of the Interior De
partment. To these assurances are
added the encomiums of Mr. W. H.
Sanders, a Government Irrigation ex
pert, who says that ho understands tho
Utah projects aro in good form, and
frill bo carried out "Just as rapidly as
he water users become prepared for
them." All of which ia as good as could
Mr. Sanders has Investigated a num
ber of the Irrigation propositions which
have been called to the attention of the
Department, and his long residence in
California and Interest in and knowl
edge of irrigation give his words great
weight. It Is especially encouraging-,
therefore, to have such welcome words
frntn him n fh vnnln mionHnn nf n-nf.
ting on with the work of improvement
of tho water service here.
But there Is another point upon which
his judgment is equally valuable, and in
the application of which the people do
not need to wait for any Improved ,
facilities, whether at the Introduction of
the Govornraent or in any other man
ner. "Wo refer to economy in the.
use of Irrigation water. His words on
this point aro so significant that thoy
wlll to advantage bear repetition.
He says, speaking on this point of
economy, and from what ho has seen:
"Ono thing your farmers have yet to
learn, I notice, is the economical use of
water, more water being- wasted than
Is actually utilized. In connection with
the Government Irrigation projects a
campaign of education on this polnt-wlll
be Inaugurated. Farmers will be per
mitted to take only tho amount of water
they need, even though they might bo
willing to pay for more. The Govern
ment will protect them against them
selves." That is indeed a water-gospel that
needs preaching here. It has been in
sisted upon by all the irrigation experts
and scientific farmers who havo ever
spoken on the subject here. It is a
point of immense importance, for no
matter how much water is supplied,
waBto will create scarcity. And waste
will do far niore haa done lt already,
In fact, in many places; it will ruin
land which Is situated below that upon
I which the wasteful application Is made.
A good many fields havo been ruined
In this valley and elsewhere by the con
stant flooding of higher land In tho
wasteful application of water.
That it will be part of tho Govern
ment's efforts to stop this wanton and
unnecessary use, is wclcomo news. It
will bo to the advantage of tho farmers,
in every way, to stop it, and after they
find the advantage of the better way,
they would not return to the worse, if
Tho Kansas Supreme Court has de
cided that coal mine operators can be
compelled by a county clerk to answer
questions as to their business, in inves
tigations required by law. This Is in di
rect line with the decisions of courts
elsewhere, notably in the case of tho
coal road's of Pennsylvania, as ruled on
by the United States Supreme Court.
The doctrine, generally stated, that is
relied upon in these decisions is that as
the public gTants the franchises and
concessions under which these com
panies operate, and as without such
public grant and concession they would
at once dissolve, the public has a right
to know what is doing by virtue of Its
concessions. And a good, sound doc
j trine it Is.
The man who stole the vial of
radium from the Chicago professor will
hardly bo the better off for taking it.
Though the contents of the vial are said
to be worth two hundred thousand dol
lars, the thief could not sell to anybody;
radium is so very scarce, that any one
having it in his possession, other than a
man known as a scientist and investi
gator, would at once be under suspi
cion; the stuff would be as dangerous
to keep as though the thief had stolen- a
white elephant. An elephant on his
hands It would be, and a detective to
boot. Probably the radium wasn't
stolen, for who would steal what would
reveal his theft the moment he under
took to deal'wlth It?
Instead of the expected big battle at
Feng Wang Cheng, there was a foot
race there, and the Russians, having
the longer legs, made better time and
got away. The purpose of the Japanese
evidently is to occupy southern Man
churia; that they will make a dash on
Mukden and perhaps even on Harbin
la quite possible; but eventually their
policy must be to concentrato and hold
their positions, for a march far to the
interior must seriously weaken their
effective -force, from, the need of leav
ing guards to protect their line of
communication; while on the other
hand every timo tho Russians draw
back, they gain strength In the shorten
ing of their lino of supply, and the
addition of those guarding it to the ac
tive fighting force. The Japanese now,
with the occupation of Feng Wang
Cheng and the investment of Port
Arthur, appear to have the situation
well in hand, and thus will be able, by
reason of their command of tho sea
and of the coast, to do pretty much as
'.they like In south Manchuria. Tho
forco that crossed tho Ynlu is now
availablo to strike an effective blow at
any Russian nrmy which might move
to the relief of Port Arthur.
THE COMING PEACE CONGRESS.
Boston is to have the session) of the
International Peace Congress which
meets next fall, and is engaged In rais
ing "tho slnewo of war" to meet the
expenses. It Is declared that this com
lnpr Congress will be the most important
peace demonstration which has yet been
held, which Is not saying very much,
as tho congresses' of this association
thus far, whllo insistent on a sort of
fiabby sentiment, i havo been singularly
lacking In Importance.
In boosting tho event (for Boston), tho
Globo sentimentally moralizes: "If wo
would spend a little more In educating
our people In peace principles, wo'
should1 very soon spend much less on
guns and gunboats. -"Peace congresses
are better and cheaper."
A sentiment which lo certainly open
to grave question. It Is not well to neg
lect the "guns and gunboats," nor Is It
safe, and it never will be, on either ac
count; neither for the well-being nor
the safety of the Republic Tho virtues
of peace are well in their place, and tho
virtues of war are exceedingly good In
A cultivation of the arts of peace to
tho exclusion of training In the practice
of the arts of war, might well be the
ruin of the country, especially In the
face of rapacious neighbors or the preda
tory Inclinations of other peoples, Clilna
Is most conspicuously In the gaze of
the world Just now, for the reason that
China has done for generations Just
what the advocates of peace would have
us begin to do now.
And what is the consequence? China
lies prostrate, a quivering mass of Jelly,
the prey of any and every nation. That
each and all do not seize upon her terri
tory nnd rend the mass apart into frag
ments suitable for tho objects of tho
various nations, Is not because of any
ability of China to help herself, but sole
ly because the nations cannot agree
among themselves on tho division of
But it may bo said, this condition and
peril would pass away if all the civi
lized nations agreed to keep the peace,
and disarm. Aside, however, from the
Impracticability of this, because of local
turbulence, the peril of riots, and crimi
nal combinations of bandits and thieves
to prey upon the community; supposing
that all to be dono away with, then
what? Evidently, civilization would He
prostrate at the feet of barbarism; and
tho established nations of the earth
would bo a fat prey to tho hordes of
barbariano and savages the world over,
that would bo keen to take advantage
of such unguarded, helpless fatness. The
world would swiftly return to a bar
ren waste, civilization would bo marked
back a thousand years, and man would
havo the tiresome march toward tho
light to begin all over again.
Peace between neighbors is all right;
and friendliness Is good among those
who can appreciate lt. But for tho sake'
of human advancement and tho reten
tion of what has been gained, that
peace must be an armed peace, ' ready
and able to dc-fend itself at all points,
n T"i rl ninnltr nff.ni t-aI f r m'vlnkln 14a

not only keep up. human advancement,
but Insure its freedom for an- ample
progress and perfect development.
The New York City Board of Educa
tion has abolished Its rule against the
employment of married women as
tenchers in the public schools; but the
board did lt grudgingly, and under the
compulsion of a decision of the New
York Court of Appeals which denied
'the- right of the board to enforce any
such order. Wc believe that a rule of.
this Wild is in force in the public schools
of this city; at least, It was so a few
years ago. It Is clearly against public
policy, and an unjU3t discrimination
against au estate In life which is hon
orable and commendable, to enforce
such a rule; and we have no doubt that
the court3, on the preparation of a case
under tho rule, would declare lt invalid.
Secretary Shaw has signed the war
rant In behalf of the French Panama
Canal company which calls for forty
million dollars. It is a big- sum of
money to be called for by one little slip
of paper. The transaction Involved Is
also a big thing, one of the biggest In
the history of mankind. It is a trans
action which will redound to the honor
and advantage of the United States
through all tho coming ages of the
world. And the changes it will make
In the commercial routcs.of the earth,
through the building of the canal, no
man can now foretell.
The death of Mr. James Sharp, ex
Mayor and prominent citizen and busi
ness man, Is a shock to the community.
It was known that ho was not In good
health; but no one had any Idea that he
was in so critical a stage as the result
proved. Mr. Sharp was Mayor of this
city at the time of the deplorable and
exasperating half-masting of the flag
on July 4th, 18S5, suffering odium on
that account for a thing he did not or
der, and could not be found for many
hours to order lt raised. More recently
his testimony In the M,ortensen case
brought him prominently Into public
notice, lt being remembered that his
cvidenoo was to the effect that God had
revealed to him that Mortensen was the
murderer of his son-in-law, James R.
Hay. Aside from his views on such
matters as these, however, Mr. Sharp
wa3 a good- citizen, of substantial
standing In business circles, and an
honest, conscientious gentleman. His
loss will bo a dreadful blow to his fam
ily, and sincere mourning will follow
tho news of his death in all part3 of this
mountain region, throughout which he
was very generally known and respect
DEMOCRATIC HOPES DASHED.
Tho Democratic press Is violent in Its
recusations ot extravagance against tho
seselon of Congress that has just been
completed. And yet the chief grievance
of the great Democratic leader In the
Senate was that a river and harbor bill
carrying twenty-four million dollars,
and a public building bill carrying
twelve millions more, were not passed.
Various other bills carrying appropria
tions big and little, which the Demo
crats were feverishly urging so that
they could have a leverage to charge
extravagance upon the Republican
Congress, also failed. Hence the Demo
cratic walls; tho grief Is on two ac
counts: they lose the pickings, and they
also lose the chances they hoped for In
tho way of gaining hoped-for campaign
The truth of the whole matter was
splendidly shown Just prior to the ad
journment of the session, by Senator
Allison In tho Senate, and by Repre
sentative James A. Hemenway In the
House. Mr. Allison Is the chairman of
tho Senate Committee on Appropria
tions, and Mr. Hemenway is chairman
of the House Committee on Appropria
tions. So that their statements are ofil-
uuii uiiu uuuiui nam
Mr. Allison, In a comprehensive and
comparative table which Is clearness it
self, showed that the appropriations for
the ensuing year wore $28,516,123.97
above thoso of the present year, but
that of this total, the sum of $19,063,449,
or more than two-thirds of the whole,
was on postoffice account, in tho estab
lishment and extension of mall delivery
routes, and other Improvements of tho
service, for tho benefit of the people.
There was an Increase of over twomll
llons for tho navy, two millions and a
half for the District of Columbia (prin
cipally In buildings for tho better ac
commodation of Congressmen In trans
acting tho public business), and two
million and a half for pensions. ,
Representative Hemenway showed
that tho Increase in appropriations by
no means has kept pace with the In
crease of the country In Its public busi
ness, In Its wealth or In Its population.
And he showed that of all tho nations of
the world, tho United Statos puts the
least burden of taxation upon Its peo
ple. Great Britain Imposes taxation
which amounts to $21.39 per capita;
France, $17.84; Austro-Hungary, $17.30;
German Empire, $9.45; United States,
$7.97, the least of all, while wo as a peo
ple are by far the richest of all.
lt Is a splendid showing of business
like methods, economical administra
tion, and faithfulness to the public
trust. It Is no wonder that the Demo
cratic partisans, hungry for something
about which they could raise a clamor,
havo been unablo to hide their disgust
at finding nothing; their rage at being
outgeneraled In their play for political
timber, Is both natural and excusable;
but the public rejoicing Is qulto as na
tural and even more hearty.
VISIIORS TO THE FAIR.
Tho newspapers, the magazines, and
the special publications aro filled with
long -and often well illustrated articles
on the great Exposition at St. Louis.
All of these are of Interest. Many aro
great In their showings of artistic beau
ty, and most of them havd accounts "of
exhibits that are well worth seeing.
But few of them havo anything- to say
on what is of most interest to thoso who
arc planning to go to the Fair some
timo during the season.
Wo refer to the lodgings and accom
modations which a stranger may want
for his needs and his comfort- It is true
that there arc many fine hotels In St,
Louis, and some famous ones. But it
can be tnken for granted that these will
not be available to the average or ca
sual visitor; they will be packed full all
the time, and will bo sealed to all ex
cept those who have acquaintance or
Influence to get them in, or aro so that
they can wire or write and make defi
nite dates for being taken caro of.
But what shall the average, ordinary
citizen do, who may tako a sudden de
sire or want to avail himself of an un
expected opportunity to go and see tho
Exposition? He has to take desperate
chances on getting accommodations of
the right sort. What the public needs
now Is not elaborate descriptions of the
Fair, or notes or pictures of Its beau
ties; all these the visitor can get after
he arrives there. The question is, where,
how, and when can ho bo lodged and
There are no doubt plenty of places
where this can be done; but the thing
desired is to bring the man and the
place together. A fow of tho articles
published tell of tho arrangements
made by various associations, clubs,
and, above all, the hotels and boarding-houses,
to take care of visitors. But
nowhere is there a connecting link
which will assure the visitor before he
leaves home that he can find any of
these agencies on his arrival at some
unearthly hour, promptly and without
extra cost and trouble.
. An article In the Review of Reviews
notes these difficulties, and says: "There
will be many people who will como to
St. Louis having made no arrange
ments, many arriving- at night, and
they will go at once to some of the
noted hotels of which they have heard.
Of course, they will find these hotels
full, and they will not get themselves
unpacked in a pleasant room without
spending- that night nnd part of the
next day uncomfortably. Effort Is be
ing made to save even the careless peo
ple from discomfort." And he proceeds
to give a list of agencies that will busy
themselves In this matter. But nowhero
la there 'the slightest cluo whereby the
visitors can got In touch with any one
of those agencies.
Right thero Is the troublor and unless
that can be remedied, multitudes of
peoplo who might go to the Fair If they
could get their accommodations abso
lutely secured before they left home, no
matter at what hour In the day or
night they may arrive In St. Louis,
wlir, falling that assurance, stay at
BUSINESS, TRADE, AND FINANCE.
Tho week has kept up the cool, stormy
weather, eo unaprlngllko at this season.
But as it adds to and conserves tho
water supply, tho season's prospects
are In fact helped by It, especially as
there have boon no frosts to speak of,
and no damage to fruit or other
growths. The Indications continue to
be that we aro to have a Hcason of un
paralleled agricultural prosperity.
Tho wool business Is In its full
strength; tho shearing Is well along,
and tho clips have begun their move
mont eastward. The prices Tald tho
flockmastcrs aro fairly satisfactory, the
competition among the wool-buyers be
ing keen enough to give the sellers tho
advantage-of tho best rates. The com
petition among the railroads for the
hauling of this product Is so close that
some advantage In rates is also accru
ing to tho wool-grower.
The mines of the Stato are yielding
splendidly; they add to the wealth of
tho community half a million a week,
and give well-paying employment to
thousands of men With appliances
constantly improving, and with the
further opening of ground of estab
lished productiveness in well-proved
properties, and the constnnt addition
of new sources of dfc supply, the out
look for Utah's mines was never so
brilliant as now. And lt Is the uni
versal testimony of every one who has
ever Invested intelligently in Utah
mines, that that Investment has been
profitable and satisfactory. Consequent
ly, the mines of this Stato have a good
repute In the Investment world, above
that of the mines of any other State.
And the plants and facilities for re
ducing ores aro constantly on the In
crease In this valley. These are now
so good and so numerous that the ore
producers of tho whole central mining
region recognize that hero they can do
better with their product than any
where else; it Is the central smelting
headquarters, enterprising and of great
capacity, able to tako care of whatever
may be offered.
The San Pedro road (tho Salt Lake
route) is pushing along with energy and
rapidity. Tho big cut at Moapa Is be
ing reduced as fust as strenuous work
can do lt, and soon the work beyond
Las Vegas will bo on with full force.
The prospects of tho reduction in time
for tho completion of this line arc so
good as to Justify the most cheerful op
timism. Tho Denver & Northwestern (the
Moffat road) had something important
during tho week. All the contracts are
a month ahead of schedule time. Work
on the switchback over the main range,
to carry the track to Sulphur Springs in
Middle Park is being pushed; when lt Is
finished so that work on the main' tun
nel can bo let to begin at both ends,
that work will begin. Tho contracting
companies aro nil busy, and aro em
ploying large numbers of men. A3
usual, there are stories of lack of
Intention to push this road through,
but we do not consider that these are
entitled to any consideration.
With the Western Pacific Interests,
the week has shown no developments.
It Is about timo that we heard something
important as to tho summer campalgu
of this concern, if there Is to be any.
The outlook in general for the State
Is of the most cheerful character. Mine,
farm, orchard, and range, never had an
outlook so good as now. The wool sales
make money plenty, and tho dlsDurse
ment of three million dollars on this ac
count In the Immediate past and future
clve heart to business and all forma of
In this city, trade is good; collections
have Improved, money Is plenty and In
demand. Tho bank clearances are prac
tically Identical with thoso of the cor
responding week last year, being 1.6 per
cent leas. Tho realty market shows a
good deal of activity, and sales are nu
merous. Tho building operations of tho season
arc fairly on, and In all parts of the city
new structures are going up. Ono of
the new enterprises noted during the
week was the preparation of plans for
a terrace on North Temple street at tho
junction with State, to be put up by Mr.
David Keith, and to be both elegant
and commodious. And tho building
fever was never before at Buch a high
stage In this city as lt Is now.
In the country at large, business ha3
greatly Improved with the coming on
of more seasonable-spring weather. It
Is probable that May trade will be
above tho normal volume for the month.
Thero are more idlo factories than
usual, however, caused largely by the
Inflated, price of cotton. The Iron and
steel outlook is at sea again, on account
of tho dissolution of the ore association.
The business failures are about average.
Crop news is on the whole satisfactory,
a shortage in any one direction being
made up In some other.
Tho bank clearances for the week,
compared with tho3o of the correspond
ing week of last year, show a falling- off
Of 17.5 per cent in New York, which 13
qulto an improvement. In tho banks
outside of New York, the decrease was
2.2 per cent, an average loss for all of
11.4 per cent.
The New York bank statement, Issued
yesterday, showed very large increase
In loans, and almost as large In depos
its; but tho decreaso of ten millions In
surplus and a like amount in extra U.
S. deposits had an unfavorable effect on
the market, and the statement Increased
the tendency to depress values.
The stock market has been Hfeles3
during the week, and the tendency to
repress speculation continues Btrong,
which Is a good thing all around.
That which Was foreseen, expected,
and Inevitable has occurred. The Man
churians, encouraged by. the successes
of the Japanese, have risen In revolt
against the Russians. Severe fighting Is
reported In attacks by "brigands" on
Russian guards stationed along the
railroad. We may expect to hear a
good deal of this sort of thing from riow
on, especially with further Japanese
successes. Tho Manchus are a fighting
race; they are put In the most humili
ating position that fighting men could
possibly be placed, by the obligation of
neutrality Which their sovereign (theirs
Is the reigning dynasty of China) has
placed upon them. It is not possible
that they should be able to restrain

Tho English Premier's Sunday golf-ha.-;
finally aroused ouch bitter controversy
that appeal has been mado to tho arch

accustomed to cat oatmeal porridge and

Here Is a neat passage from "Tho Na

ensign of civilization."
A recent historian suggests a reason
why the fluto Is not popular with lad'os.
"Minerva, In ancient Greece," ho says,
"began to play tho fluto, thinking lt such
a beautiful instrument Bho needs must
learn It. But ono day, looking in a mirror
while she was playing, she saw to her hor
