A Bark Day Fifiy yiurs ago yesterday was a dark rta in this country. In most parts of it, east of the Missis sippi, leaden skies dripped upon a sodden earth. The weather had lieen lowering or rainy for days. April showers are usually freshening and enlivening like the snows of early winter when all animal life Is stimulated. The effect of that April rain was de pressing. It was in such a setting of weather that the telegraph flashed the news that Lincoln hail been shot the night before at Ford's theater and was now dead. The nation had been bereft of its head. The man who had guided it through a four years' war, ending in victory at Appomattox, was now gone and the victory was so recent that many feared that it had not been fully secuied. There were yet rumors of the assassination of Seward and of an attempt upon the life of Grant. A second attempt might be successful. The country did not yet know how narrow and futile the con spiracy1 was. It might embrace the leaders of dis union in the north and the south, for there were powerful antagonists of the administration in the north. In many northern communities sympathy with the south had dominated from the beginning of the war. It is no wonder that many feared that the last days were at hand and believed that a negative njiswer was pending to the inquiry that Lincoln him self had propounded not long before at Gettysburg whether "that nation or any nation so conceived and mi dedicated, could long endure." With Lincoln, in the language of Stanton, now "belonging to the ages;" with Seward stricken, with Grant threatened, and with the rising distrust of Johnson, the vice president, it might well appear that the four years of strife had been in vain, and, paraphrasing Lin coln's words, "government of the people, by the peo ple and for the people was about to perish from the earth." Dark days followed and then light broke through upon the north. The stability of the government was assured, but the south long suffered misrule and wrong in consequence of the death of Lincoln. He had a breadth of humanity, and he would have been strong enough to bold back those who would wreak vengeance upon the prostrate south and give it over to plundering politicians. If Lincoln had Jived, the south would have been spared the hor rors, and the north the shame of Reconstruction. Two Dams There was a strange contrast between the joy at Roosevelt on Wednesday, night over the filling of. the dam and the gloom which broods along the Little Colorado in consequence of the disaster which at that moment of rejoicing at Roosevelt was gath ering in the Lyman reservoir. The elation of our farmers and all who are profiting by th3 construc tion of the Roosevelt Dam must be modified when we contemplate the ridn which so suddenly over whelmed the farmers of the north who, after year of. struggle with adverse conditions, were about tor reap the fruits of their labors and their years of eelf -denial.,, But the people who have been so suddenly over whelmed come of a sturdy stock, inured to contests with the desert, the mountain yand the frontier. They and their fathers and their grandfathers have ali been engaged -in empire building, and no doubt they will bring their inherited courage to the repair of their- latest misfortunes. ' The farmers of this valley are immune against . such a disaster as has befallen their northern brethren. The Roosevelt Dam has been built for all time, as enduring as the mountains or rock at either end and of which it has been made an integral part. Water for tha Battleship When The Republican a few days' ago took the lead in the suggestion that the battleship Arizona be christened with the first water that should flow over the spillway of the Roosevelt Dam, It did not mean that enough of that water should be caught to float the battleship. The waters of the' Atlantic, Wing nearer and In every way more convenient, may be appropriately used for that purpose. Some of our friends appear to have misunder stood us, and, according to reports, the first flow over the dnm oured into many receptacles for water for battleship purposes.. Only a bottle, and not a barrel, will be needed for ' the christening. . However, we appreciate the eagerness and alacrity with which our suggestion has been acted upon, and We feel sure that the Ari zona will be more appropriately baptized than any . other warship that has ever been enlisted into our navy. the bay has been mined by the Japanese, this coun try has something to investigate. The story is told by a correspondent who claims to have been ar rested or, we supopse, to have been turned back by the Japanese when he approached their warships. The whole story may be a fabrication, but a statement by Rear Admiral Pond at San Diego, in a comment on the rumor, lends color to the report of the occupation of the bay, though the rear ad miral doubts whether it has been mined, lie adds, rather flippantly, Irrelevantly and unnecessarily, that there "is not much of a neutrality basis for the Japanese to violate." A violation of Mexican neutrality Is r.ot the point for this country. first to consider, if the report should turn out to be true. It would be the action of Japan in establishing a naval base of greater or less importance on the Mexican coast. The Mines lion of the violation of Mexican neutrality is a minor , matter. , Five years ago it was reported that the Jap anese government was negotiating with President Diaz for a lease of Magdalena Bay, which we had occupied for some years as a. naval station, but v. hicli we had recently vacated. The report was taken up by Washington, and the information was elicited from both Japan and Mexico that Magda lena Bay was not wanted by Japan for a naval sta tion, but that a syndicate of Japanese was negotiat ing' for a concession for a fishing station there. It was a purely private enterprise, they said, without the slightest national significance. As firmly, though as politely, as this govern ment could make representations on such a subject, we let it be known to both Mexico and Japan that we. would consider a consummation of the negotia tions as an unfriendly act. The negotiations had probably been already consummated, for a large number of Japanese .laborers had been at Magda lena Bay for weeks engaged in some sort of pre paratory work. But the project was abandoned. Xo question of a violation of neutrality was then inv'olved, for Mexico was not engaged in war, but an infraction of the Monroe Doctrine was threat t ened, and up to that time we had observed the Doctrine ourselves anu had rigorously insisted upon its observance by olher nations. If the Japanese want a Mexican naval station now, they probably believe that, under the present complaisant administration, they will have a bettor chance of "getting away with it." At any rate, if we should now interpose the Jlonroe Doctrine, they tan point to the fact that it is already pretty well riddled, and that. we ourselves have been the chief offender; in fact, to date, the only offender. Our neglect of Mexican affairs has been a provocation to other nations to take some notice of tbem. BATTLES AND RAINFALL So far as the records are available, the rain ac companying or immediately following great battles Is not unlike that which might have been expected in the course of natural events. Bearing in mind the fact, already stated, that throughout U rge areas rain occurs on an 'average once in threes or four days, and also the subjective fact that rain asso ciated with July 4th celebratiors or with battles would doubtless not have been remembered had it not been for associations, the hypothesis appears to have no- foundation. In 1892 the United States government disproved the idea by experiments in which violent explosions of dynamite were produced within clouds by means of kites and balloons, with no rain following as a direct or even as an indirect result. The practice, still followed in various Eur opean countries, of attempting to prevent hail by bombarding approaching clouds or of projecting vor tex rings of smoke upward, also is without scienti fic basis. The relatively feeble couvecti nal cur rents resulting from -these, artificial attempts to in fluence weather are too meager to have an apprec iable effect upon the massive convection accom panying storms and are wholly inadequate tb in fluence precipitation.

JOHN BACON "Miami extends gretings to the Salt River Valley," began Senator' Bacon, in his crisp way, "We are now a new Arizona, for the old is passing. The new Arizona is coming to out shine the east. There is a better rec lamation project and more copper in Arizona than anywhere in the world. Economic conditions have been more unsettled than ever before, but we can ail help.

"Our valley is the most productive in the world. We, in this state, are marching forward in a great phalanx toward a destination beyond proph ecy." In closing, the senator paid a tribute to Abraham Lincoln, the fiftieth anniversary of whose death this day is. "We are leading the country in agriculture. We shall be the premier state some day." Some Figures on Flow At noon, Louis C. Hill pointed to the spillway and said: "Six inches of water over the four hundred feet of spillway make a sil very cascade of 24,000 miners' inches. The finest co-operative spirit was displayed byv'the people of Globe and Miami, who regarded this picnic as an outlet for their own bouyant joy. They were celebrating the low water in the Old Dominion mine, that is now op erating after several months of inac tion. All the arrangements were in perfect shape, and handled with great credit to the committee.

"Fielding treated The Republican simply fine and went to great pains to get films for me. A lot of credit is due him." A big feature of the celebration was the exhibition of high diving from the center tower of the dam into the big reservoir by Bill Corpstein, Albert Plnney ami Jack Lawton, Romainc Fielding's leading juvenile man. The drop at this point is over sixty feet and the depth of the water 225 feet. Although the water was very eold, dozens of. swimming parties were or ganized, and a large number splashed and plunged, diving from boats into the reservoir. The Great Crowd, The funniest thing about the cele bration was the way the crowd milled around getting away yesterday after noon. There were two hundred and fifty machines from Salt River val ley and fully as many from Globe and Miami. As the hour of departure drew near, everybody went up in the air. The amateur drivers got confused, and they had to send al! the machines back to Newtown to get a fresh start. The first under the starting wire was the Ford driven by C. I). Evans and carrying The Republican's dory. How he Story Came That the celebration had its humor ous side lfi the word brougnt h ick last evening by Frtd M'en of the Republi can. Released from the embargo that re strained the ruck of visitors at the dam until three o'clock, Meyers rill ing with C. D Evans in a Ford speeds ter made a mad dash for Phoenix, bearing Robert Holliday's story for The Republican. Evans left Roosevelt at 2:30, the bars having been raised after considerable argument with the more or less officious guards. After two blowouts, and stops for phone calls at Fish Creek and Mesa, he niaile it to The Republican office at exactly seven o'clock. All was not serious and solemn about the dam yesterday, although it was indeed a proper setting for the mi I t deeply solemn ceremony. The hill sides about the dam were literally covered with wiHl flowers. These numerous bright desert varieties blaz ed along the road as though a huge outdoor conservatory had been planted just for the occasion. Accommodations were at a premium at all the camps. The hotel was po sitively packed, the people sleeping everywhere on the porches and floors men and women alike. Twenty in a room was not considered crowding on an occasion like this. On the platform of the general store there was a huge crowd of visitors. Some miscreant with the unmitigated gall of a heathen, pillaged the sleepern of shoes and even clothes, and ab sconded with the loot to some cache in the nearby hills,-where they were later found in a heap. Fireworks, boating, a enwpuneher and an Indian dance were outward signs of the inner joyousness. A spirit of unrestrained hilarity seemed to take hold of the crowd, and everybody sure ly had a good time.
