The Interested parties al way have the right of recourse to the tribunals of Justice of the repub lic If they deem It convenient." The paper alleges that almost five year after the claims In question hud been arbitrated, the American kov? eminent came ta Uemaad, through Its minister In Caracas, that two of those claims shall be newly (submitted to ar bitration. Suggesting. that the useful r.ea of the Monroe doctrine will be destroyed by the present attitude of the state department, the paper con- ilnues; "We do not believe for a moment that the United Mutes congress, the high representation of the nation, can possibly authorize any proceeding which will create a situation contrary to the rule of Justice among nations. It is the duty of every govi rnnient to watch over tho legitimate and honest interests of it citizen and save them from all designing attacks but no seri ous government nor any government which pretend to be Just can or ought to protect under the flag of the fatherland the peculations of adven turers."

There is a bill now before Congress, the purpose of which Is to extend Ihi subvention mi as to make it eff.ctivi in reaehing the markets on this con tinent and along the Pacific ocean, namely, to give the same postal sub- vi ntion that is provided for under tin I,, a ..f lv.il and adapt it to ship that piy In those yaters, or. in other words, to give $1 a ton per mile to y a ssels of the second eia.ss on route I. loin miles or mor. hi length, out ward yoyav.". to South Ain.-ii'ii, to the i'iiil ppiin .s, to Japan, to Cluii mid to A u-l ra lasia.

Red Loam. 150 Feet In Depth, and Dry Farming Has Been Accomplished There for Years. Suwanec. X. M., April 4 (SH clnl) The big artesian well, which yvas struck Tuesday at a depth of only 320 feet, and which is spouting yyater tyvo inches over a tea Inch l-lpe, h is already resulted In the first ru.sh of land seekers to this section. In addition to over thirty people yvlio wero on the ground yesterday, another delegation arrived here to day, some coming on freight trains and others driving to the scene. All are locating land taking up from forty acres to lilio acres each. Nearly nil the land In the dost- vicinity to this section has already been filed lip nil and several .surveyors are noyv In the lield locating the claims. J. I". Kldi'ldge, the veteran engi neer and expert, yvho has already brought In twu artesian wells. Is pre paring to move his yvell drilling out fit to a point three miles further down the valley where he says he yviil bring In another yvell better than either of the predecessors. Mr. Kldrl.lgo says the entire coun try hereabouts in his estimation Is underlaid by a huge artesian lake and It is only n. matter of how deep bo will have ts drill at any point In tho valley to strike a line flow of wa ter. isnl (Qualify Water. That the people who hive seen the well, have caught the engineer's en tliu.slasin is shoyvn by the large num ber of claims taken up in the lust fcyv days. It Is understood that sev eral large parties will reach here Sunday from Albuquerque and from points to the south of thin place. The water which Is flowing from the well where Mr. F.ldrldge is at present located, Is slightly brackish in tastoj and undoubtedly has mineral properties. It bubbles from the yvell as though it weru filled with gas and has all the appearance of the charged water coming from a soda fountain. Mr. lOldridge says the water will irrigate anything and be Is preparing to pliico 1 lion acres under cultivation at once. Moreover, the engineer says, that alter it has been running for a few weeks, he believes the water yviil be much more palatable for domestic use and yyill be entirely good enougli tor livestock. In fact, a thirsty ani mal yviMjld not refuse the water us it is today. .Some of those yho drove to the well, watered tin Ir horses from the gusher and the horses drank the yyater without hesitation.

The soil Is rich red loam and In some places it is over 150 feet deep. It yviil grow anything. Native fam ilies in Die valley have been raising patches of corn for yenrs by crude method of dry farming and good native grass grows profusely.
