the remaining public lands lie within

Tbe deliberations of this congress will
in no email degree influence tneir early
development by means of irrigation,
and may also possibly convert the east
ern Btates to the scientific and practical
means of cultivating the soil.
The congress will be in session for
five days. During that time there will
be nine addresses presenting the various
phases of irrigation. On Friday a most
important discussion will be held, when

Among; the prominent arris'als yester
day was Col. Him ton of New York.
Col. Hinton was for yearß chief of irri
gation inquiry of the department of
agriculture, but has been out of the
service for 20 months! past. He is an
old Californian, and while be is located
in tbe east he never forgets that he has
lived in the Golden state. Col. Hinton
conducts a monthly publication in New
York and is tbe irrigation authority of
that section. He was seen last evening
and asked about his publication and the
profpect of placing irrigation securities
in eastern markets.
"My little publication," he eaid,
"has been in existence for four months,
and lam proud to say that its office iB
at the head of Wall street. It fights for
silver, talks for western interests and
"Being convinced that a market waß
coming I determined some time since to
publish the little monthly. I am en
forcing the money value of irrigation
"la tbere any indication of a market
for irrigation securities?"
"Yea. I can tell you now that one
is coming. Thoro is already a quiet,
though strong, interest felt.
"I know positively of adozen proper
ties that have been successfully placed
among small investors in epite of the
bard times and severe panic.
"As a matter of fact tbe large deals
common a few years ago by which weßt
ern investments such aa railroads, etc.,
were taken in block, are now seldom to
be heard of. If a banking or a brokerage
firm take charge of any such enterprise
it is generally upon a long margin of
time aa well aa money. They do ao
hecauße they have a long list of local
brokers and agents who depend upon
their judgment for tbe value of bonda cr
atocka and upon whom the New York
houses depend for the piecing in small
parcels of large quantities of said bonda
"It ia becauee of thia process that
where irrigation eecuritieß are ever
brought upon the eastern market they
will have a commanding position.
"I believe tbat all of your irrigation
bonds will be successfully placed ere
long among eastern investors.
"The clouds of panic are lifting, the
hoarded currency is being brought into
circulation, and neither politic-inns or
bankers can much longer Keep eastern
enterprise in the soup. Therefore lam
banking on my little newspaper enter
prise and my personal efforts on the aa-
BUrance of a coming market.
"I expect to be there and will do my
best to help all honest enterprises that
may present themselves.
"I am very glad to be in California
again and to see Loa Angeles looking ao
prosperous. I find many improvements
here since 20 months ago, and aa an old
Californian am proud oi the progress of
Mr. Wm. E. Smythe, the editor of the
Irrigation Age and secretary of the na
tional executive committee of the irriga
tion congress, was seen at the Hollen
beck lust evening and asked for his
opinion upon the outlook for the con
"All indications eeem to point to a
successful convention. The interest in
the proceedings will be general through
out the country, as is evidenced in ad
vance by the general discussion in news
papers and magazines provoked by tbe
call. The people are beginning to re
alize that irrigation is soon to aeeume
tremendous importance as a social, in
dustrial, political question.
"The programme arranged covers a
wide variety of topics, and will be in
teresting from beginning to end. Tbe
presence of the foreign delegates is sig
nificant of the world-wide interest felt
in irrigation. Outside of the varioue
papers and addresses, the two great
points of interest will be the discussion
of the district irrigation law of Califor
nia and the arid land policy.
"Both ore certain to provoke ani
mated debate. My own forecast of the
result will be the endorsement of the
district principle, accompanied by the
suggestion of needed amendments, pos
sibly in the direction of etate supervis
ion "and control. It is great a California
experiment, and public interest in its
results extends everywhere.
"As to the arid land policy it is my
earnest hope that tbe friends aud op
ponents of the. plan of cession will agree
to Bend the whole matter to an impar
tial commission composed of an equul
number of representatives from all of
the states interested.
"Thiß would secure the earnest tudys

tail and pave the way for the formula

tional legislation by the time another

The delegation will hold another ses
sion this morning.
A Frognoitlcatlon a* to the Corbett-
There ia a man, now in Arizona,
who haa predicted the outcome of
every champion or other big boxing con
teat for the last 10 yeara and haa never
failed, with the exception of the Sulli
va'n-Corbett match, on which he loat
money. Thia man ia a well-known
athlete himself, hie name being familiar
in California aa Captain Dick, an old
time plainsman and scout. Lately in a
letter received by hiß attorney in Loa
Angelea he apeakß of the Corbett-
Mitchell fight in December aa follows:
"Jim Corbett, the American cham
pion, will have not exactly a soft snap,
but it's a dead cinch for 'Gentleman
Jim' anyway. Corbett will have no
need to exert himself to defeat Mitchell,
the English champion, in about 25
rounds. But if he deßireß to rush mat
ters, which I know Corbett will not do,
Mitchell would be counted out in 15
rounds. Beaaona: Corbett is a much
younger and more active man than
Mitchell, who haß in the last eight or
nine years learned very little in addi
tion to what he knew when fought Sul
livan, the wonder of the prize ring. But
then he only weighed about 165 pounds,
and his muscles and sinews were as
springy and eupple aa those of a young
tiger. But today look at him ; he will
Btrip at leaßt at 185 pounds, a losa of 20
pounda in hia activity and speed, a gain
in dead weight detrimental to a champion
fighter, who, in his prime only weighed
108 pounda. Mitchell may be a harder
bitter than Corbett, but he ia afraid to
touch the young Oalifornian's head, for
his hands aie never in good
condition, and the fear of break
ing a bone in his fiat will
keep Mitchell watching for a chance to
knock Corbett out with a stomach or
heart blow, which Corbett will never
give bim. The pngiliefa fist ia hia
principal weapon outeide of wind and
Corbett haa a splendid, well-devel
oped hand.tin fact perfect. Mitchell's
fist is not made for a prize-fighter. It'e
the hand of a big butcher, fat and
fleshy, tbe joints in constant danger of
becoming dislocated. If hie hinds
were as good as hiß hitting power and
as hiß powerlul arm, then I would ad
viße mv Los Angelea and 'Frisco friends
to put all they can scrape together on
the Englishman. But under existing
circumstances I warn my friends to be
careful in their choice, for Corbett is go
ing to be the winner and will keep hia
champion belt, as little Dixon did. I
know Mitchell and caw him fight when
in hia prime. Of course. I felt very
Borry for the California boy ; but, as a
matter of business, advised my friends
quietly to stake their money on Dixon,
aa a sure winner in ten lounds. I am
very sorry for little Smith, but Dixon iB
a wonder like Jackson.
