The so-called jag cure law of
Minnesota, has been declared
unconstitutional by the supreme
court of that state. The court
thinks, probably, that when a
man gets a jag and pays for it,
it's his and he has a right to keep
it if he wants to, and it cannot
be legally taken away from him.
The Twenty-first legislature
of Arizona will convene in Phoe
nix on January 21st, 1900. It
will consist of eight democratic
and four republicans in the
council and eighteen democrats
and six republicans in the house.
It will hold its sessions in the
magnificent new capital build
ing, one of the finest in the
country, of which all Arizonians
should be proud.
The Arizona Sentinel is thirty
years old. The Enterprise con
gratulates that paper and its
venerable editor, J. "VV. Dorring
ton, who since the death of A.
H. Hackney of the Siver Belt,
stands as the veteran in this ter
ritory. Thirty years of news
paper life and bachelordom in
Arizona leaves Mr. Dorrington
still a young and eligible man,
quite wealthy, and with but one
bad habit he votes the repub
lican ticket. Phoenix Enter
prise , In the Arizona Kepublican of
November 16th Charles C. Ran
dolph announces that he has sold
the paper to a company repre
sented by Col. S. M. McCowan
and Dr. Geo. W. Vickers, who
have already assumed control.
The only unusual thing about
this announcement is the price
said to have been paid $50,000.
"Whatever may be said of Mr.
Randolph as a ' 'newspaper man, "
he possesses decided ability as
an editorial writer. The Repub
lican under the new management
may make more money, but its
standard of literary excellence
or as an every-day newspaper
will hardly be raised. However,
the Sentinel wishes the new
proprietors success in every way
"Water is what Arizona stands
in need of. Give us this and
the smi and the enterprising
farmer will do the rest. The
Denver Stockman well says:
"Twenty-five years ago the
country around Denver was dry
as bone and the society composed
principally of Indians, despera
does and poor Mexicans. The
pioneers dug a few ditches and
dumped the waters of the Platte
out on the desert and presto
magnificent farms, towns, villa
ges and cities appear as if by
mugic. It was the water that
made it all possible. Nature
herself has taught the lesson, if
man will but read it. There is
still plenty of desert left. Put
the water on it and it soon teems
with life, animal and vegetable.
By the expenditure of fifteen
million dollars a year for ten
years, the government can trans
form millions of acres of desert
and waste land into homes for
millions of jeople. It is the
great and grandest proposition
ever dreamed of. It is simply
impossible for the people of the
west to conceive of what the re
sult of such a move will be. It
will mean a modern develop
ment, such as the world never

"Where a person or company
has or may run a tunnel for the
purpose of developing a lode or
lodes owned by said person or
company, the money so expend
ed in said tunnel shall be taken
and considered as expended on
lode or lodes, and such person
or company shall not be required
to perform work on the surface
of said lode or lodes in order to
hold the same, says the Mining
and Scientific Press. The an
nual labor of 100 on each claim
may be performed under the
above section by work done on
a tunnel, cutting, or which is
driven to cut such claims. The
patent expenditures of $500 may
also be made in such tunnel. A
party may patent one lode on
the iine of his tunnel for each
500 of labor spent in driving
the tunnel. There is no provision
of law for patenting a tunnel site.
But it may maintain an adverse
claim for the protection of its
line and tunnel rights. Every
tunnel, whether a crosscut or
run upon a vein is presumed to
be for the development of lode
claims, and in each case its
rights are very closely defined
by law. If the proper notice has
been posted on the site, estab
lishing the boundary lines there
of, stakes set, etc., and the re
cord only made, the work must
be prosecuted with reasonable
diligence; the land office rules
that a "reasonable diligence in
prosecuting the work is one of
the essential conditions of the
implied contract. Negligence
or want of due diligence will be
construed as working a forfei
ture of their right of all undis
covered veins on the line of the
tunnel." A tunnel may, like
any other kind of claim, be
abandoned; but neglect to work
does not effect an abondonment;
such neglect only operates to de
prive it of tunnel rights along
its lines. Citizen.
"Arizona will not let the news
go to the world," exclaimed the
Prospector on election day,
" that she has gone back on
silver." But. about all the states
which will have a say in grant

hood have done so; and they
will be likely to "go back on"
