THE FE UTILE DESERT.
The revival of the project .for
the irrigation of a large section of
the Colorado De?ert, to which re
ference is made in another depart
ment of The Times today, reminds
one that has coming quarter of the
century may witness as marvelous
a transportation in that great sec
tion of the arid Southwest as we
have seen accomplished during the
past twenty-five years in San 13er
nardino and Riverside counties. It
would not be a n y new thing to in
troduce water for irrigation in that
desert, which is only ad.csert-be-cause'
it is dry, tlie land" being
en&rmous fertile. Along the fcot
hills may be seen traces of pre
historic canals, built by people
whose very name is now forgotten.
Here, as in New Mexico and Ari
zona, these ancient settlers set an
example to modern enterprise, j
Notwithstanding their crude facili
ties, so accurate was their work
that in some cases engineers in
Arizona have followed the route of
these old canals with scarcely the
variation of an inch. It is difficult
to over-estimate the change that
may be wrought in the appearance
of that section should the proposed
irrigation project be carried out.
Before long w may see a dozen
Ontarios and Riversides and Po
monas where now is nothing but
shifting sand. The soil of a large
portion of the Colorado Desert,
composed of humus that has been
brought down by the Colorado
River during ages, is wonderfully
deep and rich. This has been
shown whenever there has been an
overflow ol the river, when within
an incredibly short time the previ
ously arid land wouid be covered
with a mass of herbage waist high,
on which thousands of cattle have
been pastured. Along the river in
the neighborhood of Yuma the In
dians drill shallow holes in the
soil after the river goes down, just
& s Th ey cl oa I olig-1 h e Ija n R s b F tli e
Nile, and plant corn, melons and
other seeds, which grow up with
the rapidity of Jack's bean stalks.
While the reclamation and settle
ment of the Lower Colorado Valley
is being discussed, there are signs
of revival along Che Upper Colorado.
This river the nearest approach
to a real river with real water in
Southern California was the scene
of lively development work from
twenty-five to thirty years ago,
when there were half a dozen im
portant mining camps between
Yuma and the Needles, such as
Ehrenberg and La Paz, both of
which are at present little more
than ruins. A number of steamers
used to ply regularly along the
river, carrying large quantities of
supplies and bringing down ore.
A revival of this section is promis
ed through the discovery of the fact
that the gravel banks along the
Colorado contain gold, It is true
that the precious metal is found in
small quai tities, but it is distribut
ed over an immense area, and ex
perts believe that with modern
processes of extraction it will be
possible to secure an amount of
gold that will even put the Klon
dike and the Transvaal into the
shade. One enthusiast dec. ares
that there are 5,000,000 acres of
clay soil between the Gulf of Colo
rado and the Grand Canyon, vary
ing from one to 100 feet thick. He
estimates that these clays contain
' more gold than nas ever been coin
ed by all countries in the world.
It is said that you can dip up a
bucket, of water in the Colorado
anv where between the Grand Canon
and the Gulf, and after letting it
settle and pouring off the water the
mud in the bottom will assay from
25 to 75 cents per ton in gold
What with gold dredging on the
Upper Colorado and farming in the
lower valleys, we mar yet seehun
diedsof thousands of men profitably
employed in that arid .and at pres
ent uninhabited corner of the Unittd
States. Naturally, this wou.d be a
big thing for Los Angeles which
with due. apologies to San Diego is
the only important commercial
center between Kansas City and
San Francisco. If you put your
ear to the ground you . may hear
the rumbling of great things com
ing to this section within the next
twenty years. L. A. Times.
THE REAL P0E3T0 RiCAN ISSUE.
"Keep the real U-suein sight, and
let the President and tho party be
judged by that," is the wise con
clusion of a very able article in the
Seattle "Post-Intelligencer" on the
Puerto Rican question. Obviously
this excellent editorial treatment of
a much-discussed subject is the
product of some knowledge and
sme thinking. Unfortunately the
same cannot be said of a vast vol
ume of matter that has found 11$
way Into print relative to tbs Puerto
Rican topic. No writer hag stated
the issue more clearly or more in
telligently than it is stated by the
"It is not a question whether we
ought to impose a dut3rof25 per
cent, or one of 15 per cent, or none
at all upon commerce between that
island and the United Stales. It is
whether this Government has con
stitutional power to levy such a tax
under any circumstances; whether
Puerto Rico is territory to be gov
erned a3 all other territory added
has been, by the disposition of Con
gress, or whether its people ac
quired, by the treaty of Paris, con
stitutional rights within the United
States that compel recognition by
us and leave us no choice but to
acknowledge the new possessions
as an integral part of the nation
under the Constitution, and finally
to admit them as States."
Rightly the l'Post Intelligencer"
insists that the contest is not waged
on the question whether Puerto
Rican trade should be free or un
taxed. The opposition to the pend
ing bill is based upon no such con
sideration. It cares nothing about
the question either of Tariff or of
revenue. Engineered by clever
Free-Trade and anti-imperialist
strategists, the movement, intended
solely to "put the administration in
.a hole,?' hasecured the adhesion
of a considerable number of Repub
licans who seem to be unable to
discover the use that is "being made
of them. They are apparently
blind to -the fact, so clearly pointed
out by the "Post-Intelligencer,"
"The constitutional question is
the real bone of contention. The
position tipon that without revers
ing all our precedents and destroy
ing the practical possibility ot
huilding up a migrity commerce in
the Far East by exchanging for the
open door in the Philippines the
open door in the vast portion of
Asia under European control.
"We believe that those who have
differed honestly from the party's
policy in this particular will a,''ree
with it when they come to see what
is involved; and how cunningly the
advocates of retirement from the
Philippine have sought to make
that necessary by a pretended fight
over the Puerto Rican Tariff."
If only the army of dissenters
from the policy of the Republican
party could once grasp the idea
that a much bigger and more por
tentons question than that of 25
per cent., 15 per cent., or no Tariff
at all is involved in the Puerto
Ricari proposition, it would might
iiy help to clear up the situation.
S VH. HOUSTON'S SECRET.
"A mystery in which the Amer
ican people were once deeply con
cerned was that which shadowed
thelife of one of the most remark
able characters of the country,"
writes William Perrine of "The
Mysteries of the Century," in the
April Ladies' Home Journal. "In
1829 Samuel Houston, or, as he
called and signed himself, 'Sam'
Houston, was Guvernor of Tennes

paign for reelection to the Guber

startled by a report that he had
