From indications the water level of the Maravilla mine contains untold wealth in copper.

In "The Fighting Chance." by Oer trudo Lyiuh, the author has succeeded In writing a strong political novel, without going too deeply into the intri cate mares of a subject that to rnott readeis is apt to piove oiily wearisome: and at the same time .-he has given a rharniinkr picture of a summer house ... 4. .l I..- II. 1.., pany. weavn g ioSeinrr and her light comedy with infinite skill The part played by a delightful In genue In the holiday of a dignified rtatesman; the serious love-affair of the statesman's private secretary with its unforsee-n bearing on the lives of re vera 1 per?.ons, and the consequent contretemps of hearts; the epigram matic nk of the characters, and the wholly beautiful environment in which the actors are placed all Is written with that quiet force and genul hu- have dealt with incidents in the careers f,r American statesmen. The honora- ble Claridge Robertson Is drawn with a master hand, and many of the chap ters in which he figures are written with great power. As a piece of liter ary mechanism the novel is well-nigh flawless. It would be difficult to find a better book for a summer afternoon. "The Fighting Chance: The romance of an ingenue.

"And Director Smith is closing up all; the speak-easies." Philadelphia Rec-. , ord. J. W. BENHAM'S NEW PLACE In Charge of the Affairs of the Hyde Exploration Co. Mention has been made of the changa of management of the Hyde Explora tion company of New York and New Mexico, by which J. W. Benham has secured control. Mr. lienham has been connected with the company about two years. At the time of the late visit to Phoenix of Mr. George W. Hoadley the deal was pending and he said that If It should be consummated Mr. Benham would shortfy be eligible to member ship in the Millionaire's club. An east ern exchange, speaking of the change of management, saysi "A deal has just been consummated whereby the stores of the Hyde Ex piring expedition of Albuquerque and In New York city have been sold to a syndicate of which J. W. Benham of New York is the head. "For some time the Hydes have been desirous of being relieved of the care and responsibility of ihelr mercantile Interests. This is given as the reason for this last deal, and likewise for the recent sale or the big Farmlngton store to a corporation known as the San Juan Store Co., of which J. B. Bouck, former Hyde manager at Farmlngton. Is the head. "This last deal closes out all the In terests of the Hyde people In New Mex ico, as well as In the mammoth Indian store on Twenty-third street in New York city, which continues under the efficient management of Mr. Benham, head of the new company. "Mr. A. B. McGaffey, who Is heavily Interested in the new concern, will con tinue to manage the local store as here tofore. Mr. McGaffey will leave in a few days for New York to confer with Mr. Benham concerning minor matters connected with the transfer of the prop erties. The transaction was practically concluded last Wednesday. "This action on the part of the Hyde Exploring expedition, of which Mr. B. T. B. Hyde of New York is the head, does not mean that the famous expedi tion will no longer be -identified with the territory of New Mexico. The Hydes will in the future devote an In creased amount of money and more time to archaeological and ethnological research In the southwest, unhampered by the necessity of attending to a large mercantile trade. Scientific work is hereafter to be the object of the expe dition, which will at all times have the interests of New Mexico at heart. "J. W. Benham. the head of the new concern. Is well known In New Mexico. From 1885 to. 1905 he was in the cattle business extensively out at Holbrook. Arise., together with Mr. W. C. Barnes. Liter he went down to Phoenix with the same gentleman and founded a large Indian store In that city known as 'The Curio ' "After conducting a most successful Indian exhibit at the Pan-American ex position, his ability was promptly re cognized by the Hydes. Soon after he was induced to accept the management of the New York store. This .is the largest establishment of its kind In the world and Mr. Benham has made a great success as manager of it. "The Albuquerque store Is under con tract to take all the blankets regularly from the San Juan Stores company at Farmington, and will also receive large numbers of blankets from the trading post out "at Thoreau, formerly owned by the Hydes and now operated by the enterprising new firm of Horabln & Mc Gaffey. Under the new management the store in this city will continue to be the biggest thing of the kind in New Mexico and is going to experience some enlargements and improvements that ' U'lII I ....... t .. 4k... ...... ... . p natives, wiinin tne " , .......,, , i,. wet and ore nouliarly fitted t" tk charge of the big and growing Indian business in this city.

There was a very interesting and also a very Important meeting In the offices of the Water Users' association yester day relative to the irrigation pumping enterprises of the valley. It was In teresting to know that there are enough land owners now pumping water to hold a meeting by themselves, and It was important because It brought out a phase of the irrigation question that has been given but little thought ex cept by the few owning pumping plants. There were present George U. Collins, Q. W. Smith, W. H. Perry and Nelson & McElwaine from west and southwest of town; A. R. Jenkins from across the river in the neighborhood of the Bart-lett-Heard ranch, and Dr. A. J. Chand ler of Mssa. H. L. Chandler. A. J. Hansen. Mr. Olesen and A. C. McQueen were expected, but were 'unavoidably detained. These gentlemen ond sever al others preparing to put In pumping plants represent a considerable acreage now being and to be watered by pumps. The purpose of .the meeting was to determine Just where the "pumpmen" are at under the provisions of the pro posed storage enterprise. Several of them have plants, but they are large enuogh to afTord only a supplemental supply. They will probably sign, those who have not already done so, for stock in the Water Users' association. - There are some, though, that can tuny t their lands with pumps, and one of them at least said he would sign on condition that he could buy power In stead of water from the reservoir. If he could get some of the electric power that Is to be supplied from the big wa ter power plant at the reservoir It would be cheaper than furnishing his own power to run hla pumps. While that is a question perhaps for later regulation and It is possible that no ruling can be had yet, it looks alto gether plausible that the government, through the Water Users' association, w ould rather furnish power than water, i The philosophy of it is that when the reservoir is constructed there will be a much smaller number of persons want ing power than there will be persons wanting water. The power supply will I be almost Inexhaustible, and there will surely be times when there is no water to waste even with a reservoir. The rower is to 4be supplied through a canal that circles the reservoir basin from its head to the dam, there going down through an immense race turning the electric machinery. It then goes on to do its full duly for irrigating purposes. It is presumed there will be more power for sale than can be found use for after the valley has been much more thickly settled. Every good customer will Iv me more. Again, the man that buys power and uses a pump will leave just mat much more water for those who have no "pumps. And lastly, the pump man will be jurt this much better off to pay him for the Investment of put ting la a pbnt. That Is. that In the event of water getting low in the reser voir thre ,lll still be water for run ning the power plant so long as there is enough natural flow at the head rf the basin to fill the canal. The repervoir In fact would have to go clear dry before the power plant could give out. Should the water by any misfortune get scarce so a shortage followed, the pumpman could work away oblivious to the short age of his neighbors, only knowing that he had helped them by making one less among whom the water had to be divided. It Is a question not fully de cided or worked out but it illustrates one mighty good reason why even the pump irrigator should come into the as sociation. H he signs up he will help the cause along and long before the dam Is built he will know whether he wants to perfect his right or not. o PROTECTING THE WEAK RACES. The lot of the Inferior and unpro gresr,lv races Is hard, but there is no wav of nrotectins- them against the march of civilization except when strong powers differ as to the disjM.s ition of the land occupied by them. For instance, we can keep European political systems out of South America, but we cannot or at any rate we have not tried to. keep Europeans from settling in South American countries. And if large numbers of Germans and Englishmen were to make their homes in Venezuela, for example, the country would become Gei-man and English even though there were not a German or English soldier within the country. It will be so In Manchuria. The land will be conquered without the help of toIdler8, and no power or combination of powers can prevent It. Indianapolis News. "The Kischlneff crime," says Count Tolstoi, "was a consequence of preach ing lies and violence." Preaching' lies and violence has be come a favorite occupation of a section of the American press that section which hopes to -thrive by arraying the poor against the rich, the laborer against the capitalist. Lies and violence are responsible for a great deal of misery in thus world. Generally speaking, they are closely associated, and at all times of public disorder they go hand in hand. Truth and reason are not so sensa tional. They do not yield so many scare - heads and they do not promote riot and murder. Chicago Chronicle. WATFR STORAGE NEWS. Yesterday Was a Quiet But an Event. ful Day. There was a lot dcing yeoterday in the way of water storage news. Both the council and the board of governors held meetings, though the important things that transpired were In the of fice of the association, where the cleri cal force was busy swearing in water storage recruits, while the officers of the association were In the other rooms holding Important conferences on one phase or another of the situation, and heart to heart talks with those who were almost persuaded. The council met in the board of trade room. They appointed a committee to prepare appropriate resolutions in re spect of the memory of the late B. A. Fickas, who was cne of their number, attended to a few minor matters and adjuorned till the date of the regular meeting next month. The board of governors met In the rooms of the association. They audited and approved a few bills and spent the rest of a short session. In discussing the latest phases of the situation. Tnere is a report current to the ef fect that a mass meeting will be held In the courthouse at 2 o'clock next Sat urday, though no announcement has been made of it. It Is thought the board of trade may Interest Itself In the matter tonight. Announcement was also made late yesterday that there would be another general conference Saturday morning at 10 o'clock, of the various committees of seven appointed by the Grand, Mari copa and Arizona canals to consider the acquirement of those ditches. But the big water newa yesterday was that 6,511 acres of land were signed to the articles of incorporation of the Water Users' association. Among those signing were John R. Norton, who has hitherto strenuously held out for a bet ter understanding of the case. It is believed that many of his neighbors who have held similar views will now be ready to sign. Several others who have been slow to accept salvation also signed yester day, thus greatly encouraging every body. Another notable acquisition was the holdings of M. H. Sherman, repre senting about 1,600 acres. Mr. Sher man's land has been "in process" for some time. That is, the papers were passing to and fro, and even yet some of them may have to be sent again for more signatures, but the land is as good as "In," for' it is being gotten in as fast as possible. It is not out of the way to put a little extra emphasis on the fact of Mr. Sherman having come into the fold. Judging from certain municipal water wcrks and other fights that have happened In this country of late years, M. 11. Sherman has been credited with having a pretty level head in financial matters. But the ar ticles of Incorporation of the Water Users' association are safe enough for him to put his name to. Maricopa county also signed for 160 acres on which the pcor farm is located The total acreage signed was most encour aging and the personnel of the signers was even more so. THE CITY COUNCIL. It Declines tsCall Another Bond Elec tion Now. J. B. Woodward, representing a com mittee that in turn represented the Municipal Water Works league of Phoenix, last night presented to the city council, at its regular meeting, a petition asking for the calling of an election to be held between October 15 and November 15, for the purpose of voting $300,000 bonds for the building of a municipal water works plant. The purpose of asking that action be taken ro long before the date. of the election was that citizens who go away In the summer might have knowledge of th. movement before they leave so they would return home In time to register and vote. Councilman MesFinger mov ed that the petition be laid on the ta ble. Councilman Sanders seconded It. and these two. with Councilman Dun lap, voted for the motion. The mayor and Councilman Dennis voted no. The monthly routine work was trans acted, reports of subordinate officers read and most of the bills allowed. The only important bill not allowed was that of the Gazette for printing the no tice of the late bond election thirty days, the bill amounting to $47fi.!W), less ?84. which had been paid on it. It was laid on the table by a motion. J. A. Porterie was appointed official city interpreter. Applications for the office of building inspector, made by W. P.. Norton. J.' M. Fike and T. A. French at a previous meeting, were considered. Resolution was made by Mr. Messinger to appoint Mr. Norton and that the remuneration be the fees of the office allowed by the ordinance. Mr. Sanders amended to appoint Mr. Fike. The amendment was lost. Mr. Sanders then made a plea for the pay ment of a larger salary, but no action was taken and the vole c u the original resolution was four ayes, Mr. Dennis voting no. A petition signed by many citizens was submitted asking that South Sec ond avenue be opened from Jackson to Buchanan streets. The matter was re ferred to the city attorney to report the best and cheapest plan for doing it. This opened up the way for initiating movements for straightening various crooked streets. Mr. Sanders suggest ed that Third street, north from Van Buren to Polk or to the ditch be open ed and the city attorney was Instructed to report upon the advisability and a plan of action. Mr. Dunlap made a similar request in respect of South Fifth avenue from Jackson to Gray streets and the matter was referred to the city attorney with similar instruc tions. -Attorney Thomas Bennett, rep resenting F. C. Hatch, called the atten tion of the council to the fact that a long time ago the city, desiring to open up Van Buren street between Second and Third avenues, upon noting that the little ground they already had, not devoted to canal purposes, was a thirty-three foot strip Mr. Hatch had kind ly donated from his property for street T r TT .

It chanced that that particular lot had been sold and when the city appropriated two-thirds of it the buy er fell back upon Mr. Hatch to make good, which he did by giving the lot owner thirty-three feet of the next lot and selling the remaining seventeen feet at a low price. Mr. Hatch thought the time had now come for the city to pay him something for it. but had no desire to make trouble. His attorney therefore suggested that the city ap point an appraiser and he wqulj ap point another, the two to appoint a third if they did not agree. This dis cussion brought up the Van Buren street situation from Second avenue to Center and the whole subject was dis posed of by a motion requesting the city attorney and city engineer to re port the best plans for proceeding to open up the street all the way from Third avenue to Center. A letter was read from the guaranty company furnishing the bonds for city officers, that in view of the treasurer having succeeded himself. It destrcsl a statement from the council that his accounts were correct before renew in I his bond. This led to a motion author izing the finance committee to have the books of the recorder, assessor and treasurer checked up for the last year's work. The bond of the recorder was accepted and the bond of the tax col lector was received, but contained a clerical error, which was ordered cor rected. THE BIG TEN.
