From the Ottawa Republican. The Ringling circus was billed for Chanute yesterday. The aggregation arrived in the town Sunday,, and spread its big tent.'Tlien a polite note was sent to each minister of the city, and to the leading influential mem bers of each church society, stating that the regular staff minister of the circus would hold his usual divine ser vice in the big tent that evening, and inviting the ministers and the aforesaid prominent leaders, with their congregations lo participate in a great union meeting. Well, now maybe that Invitation didn't take! It was so electrically startling that It wentlike a flash over the city and even the sinners heard of the news and spoke favorably of It. And when thejtime came, suchanothl nar goin'tomeetin' was never know n that town. Old sin-cased hulks of wickedness whose moral sensibilities you couldn't get at with a charge of dynamite and who havn't been inside a church since their wedding day (and who were married In a justice court then) flocked to the gospel meeting in the circus tent, and it was tilled up till it ran over the brim. It was a very devout occasion no doubt. And next day extra ticket sel lers were put on at tiie ticket wagons, for not a man, woman or child who could hire or borrow the price but was there togo the "great moral show," where flip flops were turned in a re ligious light and the Hon and the wliangdoodle literally roared and mourned for their firstoorn.

Uncle Sam As A Land Owner. According to the annual report of the commissioner of the general land office at Washington, the United States Government still ownes nearly 600 million acres of land, in addition to the 369 million acres embraced in Alaska. This land Is in twenty-five states and territories. Montana stands at the head of the list, with 711 million acres. There are still a mil lion acres of public land in Kansas, half a million acres In Missouri and 10t million acres in Nebraska. The greater part of the Govern ment's possessions consist of arid lands and mountainous districts, which are unfit for agricultural uses. Though without much value at the present time, many million acres of this great public dommn Is destined at some future tame to support a large popu lation, by means of cultivation with the aid of irrigation, and the present growing sentiment in favor of experi-f ments in Government operation o industries will probably result, before many years, in the construction of vast irrigation systems in the arid re gions, .by the United States Govern ment. mere is an excellent oppor tunity, that, to test some of the popu-i lar socialistic theories without a dis turbance of the existing lndustrla and social conditions, and without. any chance of serious loss to the gov ernment. There are many people In the Unit ed States who are inclined to approve a good many features or tne single tax idea, for example, but who are too conservative to advocate an applica Hon of the theory to lands already controlled by Individuals. -Such per sons would welcome some experiments with the theory In the regions now owned by the Government, which can be made arable by irrigation, and It is not at all unlikely that a well consid ered plan for developing these lands and nutting them Into use, with the Government as a great land' ed proprietor and the people as leS' sees, or renters, may be adopted by Congress before many years. In time these lands will be a source of great wealth to someone, and as they are now owned by the Government and there is a strong sentiment in favor of launching the Nation into an ex periment of that sort, there seems to be no good reason why the Govern' ment should not undertake, by Irriga tion, to put large bodies of arid lands in condition to yield the Treasury a substantial revenue, and at the same time make a test of the effects of such an enterprise on the social con ditions, the Industry and the enter prise of people who are anxious to take piyt in such an experiment. jiansas uuy oiar. Exhaustion of the Eastern Gas Fields. There seems to be no question of the early exhaustion of the great natural gas deposits of Pennsylvania Ohio and Indiana, which for a period of years have supplied cheap power and heat to millions of people and which had been supposed to be practi cally inexhaustible. Owing to the enormous waste in consequence of this confidence in the abundance of the supply, the people of the gas belt are beginning to look about for other moans of heating and lighting and for manufacturing pur poses, realizing that it is but a matter of a few years when the gas will be no longer available. Compared with eiglit years ago the returns for last year show a total output amounting to 13 million dollars, against nearly 23 millions, a falling off not far from a million dollars a month in the an nual product. Pennsylvania, ten years ago the leading gas state, shows a falling off from 19 millions in '88 to 5 millions in '96, which plainly indicates the speedy exhaustion of the fields of that state. In discussing the diminution of supply the Philadelphia Press re marks that "at this rate in another ten years natural gas will have ceas ed to be of any appreciable industrial value in Pennsylvania." In Ohio similar conditions are found, the pro duct having steadily diminished since '89 and now being insignificant. As a less exploited field, Indiana will hold out after these states have retired from the field, but its product Is year ly diminishing and is not expected to iast longer than ten or twelve year in commercial quantities. Comment ing on these facts the Chicago Trib une says that at the present rate nat ural gas production "promises soon to become a played out industry." In the situation the extent and value of the new Kansas gas fields in and about Allen county become mat ters of general interest. Already there is an influx, both of men, money and manufacturing plants at Iola, where the supply of gas is heavy and the town wisely offers it as a bonus to manufacturers. There is no reason why this cheap power should not do for eastern Kansas what similar sup plies have done for Indiana and Ohio and in a measure western Pennsylva nia, while if the Kansas people learn from the experience of the eastern gas fields to avoid unnecessary waste of the supply the new fields should last longer than those of the eastern states. There is apparently as reck less a waste in Kansas field, however, as in the older fields of the eastern states referred to. Topeka Capital.
