I We are glad to see that the Daly West
is recovering from the bear raid on Us
stock; the price is getting back toward
the figure tho stock was held at prior
to the drop. There was In fact, as Btat-c-d
at the time the break came, no cause
whatever for it; tho mine and the ore
deposits aro and all the time have been
in first-class form, and the output has
not In any degree decreased. It was a
baseless raid altogether.
I President David Keith's report on tho
great Silver King mine, to the effect
that it is looking 'better than ever;
though it has been five months since he
has seen them, tho oro bodies do not
seem to have diminished at all he

while the unexplored ground is yet Im
mense The quality of the ore is well
maintained, as in the sample taken by
Mr. Keith, which .shows D8 per cent
lead, 200 ounces silver, 7 per cent cop
per, and $1 gold. It is a great mine,
sure enough; and one that has an Im
mense future before it.
I Some time ago, The Trlbuno referred
to the movement for tho unification of
the school system of New York, with
the suggestion that the idea ought also
to be considered in this State. The
bill for such unification has been
rlassed in New York. It provides for
a new system of superintendence for
the public schools, and Dr. Andrew S.
Draper, formerly president of the Uni
versity of Illinois, has accepted the
position of Commissioner of Educa
tion. Under tho new law, the old Board
of Regents and the office of State Su
perintendent of Public Instruction are
abolished, and a new Board of eleven
Regents holding office for a limited
term instead of for life, are created.
The Commissioner has charue of ele
mentary and secondary schools, and the
Regents of colleges, universities, tech
nical and professional schools, libraries,

IH great problem arises, to wit, how can

lem, Senator Elklns of West Virginia
IH has introduced a bill In Congress, ap
HH propriatlng J1S.G00 to cover the cost of
IH getting out 2200 railway maps uudcr the

ides, is to have tho exact lines of the
railroads laid down, with all their
curves, nnd their precluo location. The
maps as proposed will In nize be about
17 Inches by 10 feet, and the scale 16
miles to the inch. Tho new map, if au

SHOULD FARMERS LIVE ON FARMS!
This is a question which in Eastern
States answers itself; the farmers live
on their farms, as a matter of course,
and the whole country Is covered with
farmers' dwellings and farm buildings,
with the farms attaching to thorn. Tho
farmer expects nothing else than to llvo
In his Isolated buildings, and a sugges
tion that farm settlements or villages
should be formed would generally be
utterly rejected as impracticable;
though It is a fact that efforts of late
years have been made by farmers in
some localities to form communal set
tlements for mutual improvement and
sociability, as well as to promote schools
and school attendance, church worship,
and other desirable social relations
which can only be carried out well
through contiguity of settlement and
the co-operation of tho community.
In this region, however, conditions
have been different, and the isolated
individual farm is not the natural or
general order. On the contrary, as a
whole settlement depends upon tho flow
of a stream, It Is tho natural thing for
tho settlement to be formed at a point
on that stream convenient for the ta
king out of its water for irrigation pur
poses. The fields are usually below the
settlement, because the people want the
purest supply for culinary and drinking
purposes. Tho water la distributed for
irrigation according to needs, and the
control of it is in tho hands, practically,
of the community.
Tho distances to the fields aro gene
rally not great, and the whole machine
ry of administration is at the central
settlement. The system works well up
to a certain point, but Its weakness Is
that It does not allow of expansion or
growth. Under it there Is a decided
tendency to crystallize operations, In
cluding the control of the water, on a
given scale, and keep the administra
tion precisely there continuously.
Tho effort at improvement Is not apt
to be welcomed after tho management
of affairs and the rights of water-users
have become settled, and tho common
result is that such settlements remain
unchanged year after year, tho increase
of population seeking means of liveli
The result Is that a demand for a
change of system is beginning to be
heard. The improved systoms of cul
ture, including the decreased use of
water and more energetic tillage, lead
many to see an opportunity for a mod
ification of the old system, a greater
utility of the water that is and that can
be provided, and a branching out Into I
individual farms. i
A letter recently received from one of
the central counties of the State raises
tho question, in favor of the farmers
living in villages, not In towns or cities.
That letter mentions the desirability of
the farmer having a garden, which 13
half the living of the family. In Isolated
farms, It urges, the farmer could not
get water often enough for his garden,
and in a village he can have the home
lot surrounded by trees, and he can
cultivate his farm, situated two to four
miles away, very easily
' Besides, it would be pleasanter for
him In a social way; easier for liis chil
dren to attend school: he can get the
news by telephone or telegraph; he can,
In .a word, have the advantages of vil
lage life, while still being a farmer.
This is precisely the conditions which
have commonly prevailed in Utah and
other States. The disadvantages are
hinted at above. It is a large question,
however, and the farmcra Will have to
settle it for themselves.
l?ut one thin? is certain; any perma
nent fcystem must allow for Increase
and growth This must come in one of
two ways, and It should be double, and
com in both: the increase of the wa
ter supply in tha irrigation season, and
the better tillage which will allow of
making a cubic foot of water go twice
as far as it doee now.
Thfti-e are two ways, again, of having
this increased water effect: one by cul
tivation, mulching, and the arts that
make water go far in moistening the
ground; the other, in ceasing to conouct
tho water in open ditches, as at pres
ent, whereby a largo proportion of ltyis
lost half of It, say, In such a long ca
nal as that from Utah Lake to this
city, by seepage and evaporation.
The whole question is both vital and
pressing. It is up to the people of Utah
to consider it in all Its bearings, and to
provide the needed remedies. While it
is true that our population Is increas
ing, It is also true that much of this
Increase is in the cities, and In many
counties but little In the farming com
munities. And many of the people are
moving away to Canada, to Mexico, to
the Big Horn, and elsewhere.
A remedy for this scattering of the
populatlou Is needed. We believe that
the remedy can be found by a candid,
intelligent consideration of tho whole
question by those most Interested. And
wo believe that the time for that con
sideration has come.
An exhibit of radium will be pre
pared for the St. Louis exposition,
under Government auspices, by Dr.
George F. Kunz, as special agent of
tho United States Geological Survey.
Dr. Kunz has been authorized, says
Science, "to prepare and procure ma
terial comprising radloactlvo sub
stances of all kinds, and also exhibits
to Illustrate the action of radium com
pounds, ultra-violet light, and Roentgen
rays upon mineral and chemical sub
stances. This exhibit to be made by
tho United 6tate3 Geological Survey In
the "United States building at St. ou.
Thcro will be a second exhibit of ra
dium and radioactive substances in the
Mines building." That exhibit will bo
worth the trip to seo, especially for
Utahns, ns the ores most rich in radium
come from this State.
TO BE BRISK AT PANAMA.
The dispatches this morning mention
tho disbanding of the Second battalion
of Panaman troops, leaving but one
battalion in the service. This is no
doubt by reason of the cessation of all
threats of Invasion from Colombia, and
also because of the expectation that tho
United States will furnish the necessary
force to guard the property and protect
tho peace In tho canal strip and In the
cities at tho terminals of the canal
It Is undoubtedly the Intent of the Pa
naman Government to engage In a sys
tem of development and improvement of
tho country. It will start with a treas
ury so full that there has never been
anything like it for any new nation in
tho world. The area of tho new repub
lic Is 31,571 miles, or three-eighths that,
of Utah; its population Is a little under
200,000, or very nearly tho same as tint
Tho United States Is about to pay Into
tho Panamun treasury the sum of ten
million dollars, for the canal concession,
end the possession of tho canal zone.
TJiis will eventually, no doubt, result In
a protectorate if not tho sovereignty of
this country over tho whole area of
Panama, for it would be quite lmpossl
blo to allow the tremendous property
rights involved In the canal to be at the
mercy of a feeble folk like the Pana
mans, who are alike unable to guaran
tee or protect.
Already thero arc plans for a number
of things that arc to be done by tho
public; some of which are reported by
"United States Consul-General Gudger
First in order is the Ice-planL The
present supply is a monopoly, which
has held the prico very high and has

two to five cents a pound. The Govern

lighting is In contemplation, including"
street-car systems and city Improve
ments. A Presidential palace Is to be
built at Panama, and a large and spa
cious building for a public library; also,
other needed public buildings.
The Government contemplates con
necting the capital of Panama w ith the
other parts of the Republic by telegraph
lines. The question of roads and public
bridges will be considered.
In Panama and Colon, u3 well as In
the "zone" along the railroad, there will
be modern sewerages with sufficient
quantities of water.
Other public wcrks will also be need
ed, and the Government will no doubt
enter Into the providing of all the
things necessary to thoroughly equip

tion. With them, the isthmus can be

times its present population.
- RUSSIA IS CROWDING CHINA.
The news from the Far East contin
ues to be most unsatisfactory, so far as
the movoments of troops are concerned,
and the naval operations. When an
item of news comes It Is promptly de
nied, and then both recital and denial
rumble along the days until one tires of
reading the same thing over and over,
with different settings every time.
Some news we get only in negative
form, by denials of alleged reports, as
the denials this mornlg of a Russian
loss of six hundred men In northern Ko
rea. Simultaneously the denials of
damages Inflicted at Port Arthur have
sometimes been the only news received
of the fighting- there.
But one thing Is so persistently car
ried in the dispatches that there can be
little doubt of Its truth. We refer to the
evident purpose or nussia to xorce umna
Into this war. Constant complaints are
made by Russia against China, like that
in today's dispatches, claiming that the
Japanese arc about to land troops In
neutral Chinese territory; the idea ap
parently boing that Russia is free to
make the Chinese province of Manchu
ria the theater of Avar, hut that If Ja
pan does the same, neutrality is vio
lated. The act of the Russian military attache
at Peking, also, in demanding the priv
ilege of going to General Ma's army to
see that he docs nothing adverse to
Russia'3 interest, Is in the same line of
querulous complaint, and a direct In
sult besides; but the Russian privilege
is evidently considered wide enough to
put the Chinese completely in the Czar's
Now, why does Russia crowd China In
this manner? Evidently, to give herself
a free hand, po that she can annex Man
churia definitely and finally, as an act
of war. Even should Japan triumph in
this war, Russia could claim Manchu
ria if she is not altogether driven out
of it, If she could Involve China In the
struggle. That would be tho prima mo
tive; and even If China should keep
neutral In fact, these complaints would
afford Russia an excuse for claiming
Manchuria, on the basis laid down that
China had not in fact remained entirely
Then, there is always the possibility
of drawing France into the conflict.
That, of course, would mean a general
war. But as Russia is already at war,
the terrors of this are not vivid; being
already In, the Bhock is over, and the j
joy of seeing other nations make the
plunge would be viewed with the com
fprtable hilarity those who have al
ready dipped into tho cool waves view
those who novo not yet made the
plunge, but stand shivering on the
A WOMAN'S FALL'
From the Now York Mall and Express.
Mrs. Porter D. Smith wad killed in an
nccident on the Lehigh Valley Railroad.
Her husband sued for damages in his
own and his children's behalf. In this
suit n photograph of Mrs. Smith, who
was a beautiful woman, was shown to
the Jury. Damages were awarded; but
the Court or Appeals hos reversed the
Judgment on the ground that "the In
troduction in evidence of the photo
graph of a handsome woman could not
be expected to accomplish any other re
sult than- to introduce the personal ele
ment." We must accept It, then, as the Inex
orable word of tho law that the person
ality of a woman, her soul, her spirit,
the "continual comfort In her face." the
music that breathes from It, the bene
diction and the garden of Joys that
poets as well as huBbands and chil
dren have found there that all this
cuts no figure when her life Is taken.
The only consideration which can be In
troduced Is that of th2 monetary value
of her services.
With respectful humility be It said
that this Is an unworthy, a contractual,
a sordidly businesslike view to take of
PNEUMONIA WORSE THAN WAR.
From the New York Press.
Can it bo possible that 6000 persons In
New York have died of pneumonia since
December 1st? There was a four-yeats'
war between sections of this country,
and In all that time doctors did not
treat a single case of pneumonia. No
soldiers ever suffered more from ex
posure, with tho possible exception of
the French in the retreat from Moscow.
But even among those hopeless follow
ers of the mighty Napoleon pneumonia
was unknown. Physicians let us dio in
swarms right here In our warm houses
of a disease that did not kill a soldier
in the longest, bloodiest wars of history.
