The present heavy fall of enow
t to be carefully studied by
tht Legislature. It eiaiply reprt-
leQ s ao much wealth coming down
fxo a the cloads. The snow now
Jjiar on the hills of Nevada is well
worth ten million dollars bard cash.
The question now arises, is the
wealth worth savinc? Burins the
past twenty-five years capital has
been chiefly interested in going
under ground for its returns. Mil
lions of dollars have been invested
in hoistifig machinery and mining
devtlopmentj which have yielded
an immense return, but when all
the ore ia taken from a mine it
does not come back. Every ton
taken out of a bonacza represents
80 much wealth which cannot be
reproduced. Such wealth comes
quickly but the stream runs dry at

saving the water stored up eaeh
Winter in the snow banks would in
the end prove of more actaal ben
efit t the State than the Comstock
lode because the investment would
be permanent. The question of ir
rigation ia the most important one
now before the Legislature. The
aeteerological reports show that
during the year the rain fall is am
ple to irrigate boundless crops, but
it ia not distributed through the
proper seasons. It therefore re
mains fer the inhabitants of the
State by their enterprise and inge
nuity to change these conditions of
nature. The saow should not be
allowed to run to waste. Dams and
reservoirs will save it and store it
for Summer use. It is just as easy
to do this as in the Fall to save the
wheat aad cern for use in the Win
ter. Wherever a good stone dam
is bailt across a ravine it will last a
life time, and each an investment
is the most permanent that a man
can make.. .The tremendous value
of our soil has been, over and over
aeain demonstrated beyond a cavil,
There seems to be netbiug in the
United States to surpass it. Com
missioner Haveaor exhibited wheat
in New Orleans that took the first
premium, cempetirg with the
world. he showed the gaping
crowd potatoes that averaged feur
pounds and one which turned the
scale at thirteen- . It is not enough
that one energetic man is trav
elling over the world to advertise
our resources. When he shows
these products and is asked the
question, "Can you raise these pro
ducts all oyer Nevada?" he is
obliged with downcast eyes to admit
that owing te the scarcity of water
these products can only be raised
in a few localities.
Next Spring Mr. Havenor will be
in London as Nevada's Commis
sioner to the World's Exposition,
and the Legislature should see that
he is able to proclaim at that time
that the Nevada Legislature has
taken steps to enable more ef our
rich soil to be cultivated than ever
before. It is folly to send a Com
missioner to London witheut we
are able to show that there is suffi
cient progrssiveness here to utilize
the gifts of nature.
A. WASIIlMttTOX MOB.
A News special says: All
agree in saying that the imposi
tion on the Chinese Minister at
his grand ball was a shame.
About 400 invitations were
issued, and over 1,500 people
made their way into the Stewart
Castle. Dancing was impossible
because of the awful crush. It
was net a ball, but a well dressed
mob. The cloak rooms were a
scene of confusion, and the
dressing-room was so jammed
that the stairway was crowded
for hours with ladies trying to
reach or turn from it. There
was so much confusion that the
ladies lost their wraps and
gentleman their overcoats, and
had to send to the Legation in
the morning to see if they could
not be recovered. In the
drawing rooms, which were
jammed with people, many
handsome ornaments were
brqken and others are missing
but the most disgraceful srene
was in the dining-room, which
was taken possession of early in
the evening as soon as the doors
wero opened, by a well-dressed
mob, and occupied until the
tables were cleared.
Hen Perley Poore says there
never was anything like itj that
there was never anything so
disgraceful in the history of
Washington society. Of the
1,500 people who were in the
house only 200 persons reached
the dining-room, and they
remained there. Some who
wanted to get out were unable
to do so. One Senator who
passed In early in the evening
relates that after seating his
wife he went to the table to get
her some refreshments, but was
not able to return to her because
of the jam, and he did not see
her again for two hours. The
description of the affair which
Chang Yen IIoou will send to
his Government would be inter

tion whether 'civilization is a
