TO MAKE THE COLORADO DESERT AS RICH AS VALLEY OF THE NILE Washington, M.iy 3.—An empire ii •bfing founded in the most barren, deso late region of the United States, the great Colorado desert.

States, just north of "the point where the boundaries of California, Arizona and Mexico meet. The California Development. Co. has reclaimed 200,000 acres of the desert. Ten f thousand settlers have made thru homes there. Arid wastes have been con verted into arable land that yields rich crops" of wheat, barley and alfalfa. Dates will be grown there. Railroads, bunks, telephones, schools and all the other advantages of civilization are at the disposal of the people. Stories nre told of men who have, in a year, made from $40 to $S0 an acre from land that coot $5 or loss mi acre.■•-. :is i-^ thin tale of transforms tion, v is but the forerunner of enor Btouelj .l«'\ vlojiiuent in Ii tare. , in the lower stretch of. the Colorado river,,. between' the Needles ami Yuma, on the Mexican boundary, there are to be reclaimed, if | the government is to control the work, 1,-00,000 acres. Ac •ordlng to the records of Southern Cali fornia, this land will be able to support, on the farms and in the towns, 1,500,000 people.. Similar results are to tie gained all the way to the headwaters of the Colorado, which, with its tributaries, flows through Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Cali fornia and Arizona. The development is to take place un less the development company, which has established , irrigation works near the Mexican boundary, is awarded ownership of the waters of the river at that point. In'that case there could be no diversion of the water further north. The company, under the laws of Cali fornia, in 1890; claimed 10,000 cubic feet per second'of the water at Yunta. It is now asserted that this was' in effect 1111 appropriation of ull the water in the river. • with its rights the com •r.l 80O,0i 1 l.'iml .nd it I'lnns to il r additional in the United • Nothing occurred to interfere with its ownership until the comparatively re cent . discovery that, according to the Gndsdeu treaty and the laws of the Unit ed States, the Colorado is a navigable stream. ■ * There is little or no navigation, but under the law ii is navigable and there fore iU water* cannot be used for irri gation. ; To remedy this defect the water com pany, asked the present congress to pass • short law declaring the river non navigable. .That precipitated a contest. \\. I". Bmythe, of Baa Diego, Oak, father of the national irrigation cougress and a longtime advocate of irrigation, came here us a representative of the set tlers to oppose the bill. Officials of the interior department, charged with the duty of carrying out The Str. Greyhound 1» now on the run from Ticom* to Olympic. "** kt rated.

The committee did not take ■ favorable view of i he rMßonatnncc and will so report to the council. .ai«, hi two monthK *tti, the came prop erty 'owner* appeared before the comniit tee nd (ought it similar petition, which Mr. Sprbule had nibmitted to the council. The garneness of the different fish de pends upon the water they inhabit. For instance, those found in cold, running water are belter fighters than the larger fish, 11l stiller bodies. Th<»e trout may be taken in many ways. Trolling in the lakes, with spoons or phantom minnows, is the usual method, but they rise to the fly or grass hopper readily. In the smaller streams fly casting or casting with the graasbop per is most successful, Ii would be impossible to name the lakes and streams when the fish may In- taken, but they abound in so many waters that any native can take the ang ler to good fishing in a short time. Ihiring August is the Ix-st time to take the cutthroat on the By. They bite vig orously, often breaking water two or three times in their anxiety to take the lure. In the streams the sport lasts long er than in tin' lakes and during October it is ,it its very best in the running wa ter. ♦ho great irrigation works projected liv the government, iilsn vigorously opposed till measure. They declared IIS passage would give the California Development Co. complete control of the waters of the Colorado river. Tinl company official! could tax settlers to their hearts ' content. They could l>ar flit' jjovprniiicnt from using it« river at any | .■ > 1 iit along "113 ,-inirii- tor irrigation purposes. President lleber, of the development company, declared that the 10,000 cubic feel of water per second was only n small part of the flow at Yunm and that there Would be an abundant surplus for the government'■ irrigation works, Sena tor Teller, at a,committee hearing, seen 'cd disposed to Hide with him. As it result of the contest the water company's bill will not be passed. In stead there will be an investigation of the whole subject by government officials and a report will bo made to congress next winter. The wafer company charges a settler for the privilege of getting water from the irrigation ditch. Several years ago the charge was $■"> an acre. It was afterwards raised to $11 and is now $l'o un acre. The com l>;uiv may incit-ase it to the full value of the irrigated land, $50 or $100, if ii chooses. After making this preliminary payment, which gives him a perpetual license to gel water, the settler is assessed from 60 cents to $H an acre annually tor the water received from the company, A tax of $•_' ail acre on 500,000 acres, the amount which the company proposes to irrigate in this country, would give it a yearly revenue of £1,000,000. If the government takes charge the settlers will pay merely the cost of get ting the water to their farms. They will not be assessed for dividends. The set tiers now out there are appealing for government ownership. It i-> claimed that only the government can utilize the river to tin' full extent for irrigation purposes. A private company, it is declared, must get quick returns for its investment, and, therefore, can make only a partial or wasteful use of tin water. If the government'should take charge there would be a great dam like the As souan dam on the Nile, and the benefit* would be shared by settlers over a vast area of country. In thai case, the Cali luiisi-il for the money invested, and its bursed for the money einvested, and its works taken over by the government, or it would be given a share of the water supply. Kven those who oppose the company '- bill have only praise for the great work it has done, and say that its investors should be fully protected. They have spent 18,000,000.

One of the posse declares Collins fired a bullet into Schumacher's head while he lay on the ground. Collins denied this, and exhibited a wound in his bead which, he declared, prompted him to shoot. After the posse was routed the youths gathered their currency, burned the $110,000 worth of securities and fled to a neighboring farm where they compelled a num. to sell them two horses,- paying him +-'0O for them.

He hud appealed and was waiting the slow process of final decision. Last February Rudolph was discovered in the Lansing, Ki-<., penitentiary where he had been sentenced for safe cracking. He had taken an alias, shaved his head and pried out several: of his teeth to avoid identification. When confronted he admitted his iden tity, was pardoned and brought to Mis souri for trial. On Saturday, March -7, the date set for the execution of Collins, Rudolph was convicted and sentenced to hang May 13. Collins was hanged at Union, Mo., at 1:35 p. in. One hour later sentence was passed on Rudolph. Collins had testified in Rudolph 's behalf only the day before and sought vainly' to exculpate his pal of the murder charge. He couldn't tes tify that be had killed Schumacher as his testimony in his own case was a matter of record. But be did swear one of Schumacher 's owu party accidentally killed him. No gamer ivan than Collins ever went to his death. He said he would "die like a man," and he did.
