Beginning et Ne pesta, the storm of rain, hail and lightning came east with a rash and covered the entire valley aa far east at least as La Junta. Hail cov ered the entire yalley, thongh there was added severity in epofca and streaks. For instance, in the coun try southeast of this city the ruin was almost complete, all vegetation being pounded into the ground, while in the city limits the damage was muoh lighter. Hon. J. H. Crowley estimates the damage to his fruit crop at about 90 per cent, or $ 10,000. There ia time yet for the replanting of beets and cantaloupes aod garden truck and we are glad that our farmers are determined to make the best of a bad situation.

America’s Naval Advancement. According to a well known naval authority in Europe, the United States is soon to lead all the coun tries exoept England in naval strength. England is first and stands a chance to be for several de cades. Germany leads the United Slates in first class battle ships now, and will continue to lead it for two years. At the end of 1908 we will be ahead of Germany to the extent of one big battle ship. This is on the basis of vessels already under construction or wbicn baye been ordered. • But America’s aggregate tonnage by the end of 1908 will be tnneb su perior to Germany’s. Onrs will be 333,847 tons and hers 250,557. This will give ns a superiority in naval strength much greater than the one additional vessel would in dicate. We will be a long way ahead of*Germany by that time, too in first class cruisers. We will also lead France by that time in that type of vessel, for though France will be a little ahead of ns in num ber of cruisers ours will be larger and newer than hers. By 1908 tho United States will bold the second place as a naval power, leading France and Germany. Russia is out of the recokoning now, at least for the time. The destrnc tion of many of her big vessels re duces ber to a low rank among the nations in naval power, and Bhe will remain low until her new uavy is built after the war. is al lowing both Germany and the Unit ed States to gain on her, and we will be ahead of ber three years hence. By that time Germany will be up with France in naval strength, which is something that nobody H few years ago supposed would come so easy. With France, however, in virtual al liance with England she need care little for Germany’s advances in naval strength. There has beau a great shifting in the alignments of the nations in the past few years, and this will have au influence on naval construction by some of the powers. The United States, owing to the length of its coast line, to the extent of its colonial possessions, and to the expansion in its trade with Asia and the rest of the world, will be obliged to take an 1 hold a naval rank but little below England’s. Eventually we will lead England in naval strength.—Globe-Democrat. That Water Suit Graft. It is stated that another appropri ation of $15,000 will be aHked of the legislature to pay lawyers for con tinuing the Arkansas river graft suit. This suit is one of the most joyous affairs for the lawyers Kan sas has ever concocted and there is no telling when it will end. It is pretty certain where it will end. The states of Colorado and Kansas will jaw over the inalter a few years, a few thousand pages of testimony will be taken and it will drop out of sight. The Arkansas river rises in Colo rado and Colorado people use it gen erously in watering the broad valley from La Junta eastward. It is mighty unlikely that the courts will say to Colorado: You must not use this water but must let it run over into Kansas so it can be used there. It is not even sustained that the Warhurg | THE FAIR Queensware Glassware ehinaware Graniteware eopperware river’s How in Kansas is less today than it was twenty years ago, the theory being that in the porous, sandy soil of the valley the water □sad for irrigation seeps through to feed the river again below the ditches, thus serving a double pur pose. Of course the lawyers want the suit continued. If they can keep it up twenty years they will get SIOO, 000 or more out of it. If the state of Kansas would use the money it is spending on this matter and put it into intelligent experiment for de termining just what the Western Kansas Arkausas valley can raise profitably under present conditions it would show much more intelli gence. —Abilene Reflector. A Dream That May Come True. High license in New Mexico is be coming fierce, and it is not so worse in Colorado. In the town of Ros well the annual license is $2,000, and must bo gaid in advance for tho whole year. The gambling license has also been doubled and mast be paid annually in advance. Over in Lamar two hundred and sixty citi izens have petitioned the city dads not to grant saloon licenses during the coming year. The wild and wooly west is evidently on the verge of becoming Rocky Fordized. Susan B. Anthony recenlty made the state ment that “out in Colorado where equal suffrage prevails nearly every town in the state has gone dry. Even Denver, one of the most cor rupt cities in America, has almost been cleansed.” Susan 8., evidently has not visited Colorado of late years, but it begins to look as though her pip® dream may come true. — La Junta Tribune.
