A HM'iiir t lie vast uumbiTof bills that have come over l'rom the last sessiou of roiign ss un; several veiy impor tant ones to amend the inuring laws of the covin ry. We doubt if of all that number, one will come up for se rious toiiMilcration during the com paratively few workiug days of the present congress, aud if one is reached on the caleuriar, there is every reason to believe tlintit will be passed over, without any action being taken. All therefore, will go down to the next congress, a' legacy that the members of both branches will be perplexed with. Hut to the people of New Mexico, Colorado aud Arizona the re vision of the mining laws is a matter of the greatest importance. It is too true that as those laws now stand there are too many difficulties of ad Justinrnt between labor aud capital, between the rich miners and poor ones. Action on these matters is of vital importance io millions of people in these western states aud territories, us they hinder the development of a most important industry. The tariff question is, no doubt, of great Impor tance, but the mining laws should corunaud equal attention. It is well perhaps tl at such legislation is not to be hurried, for, were they forced to an issue, we might sutler quite as much as we have in the past, through the ignorance of the members of our national legislature. When the lirst milling croze inflamed the people, rules were necessarily adopt ed, but there was no excuse for the stupidity of congress in legislating them inlo laws. From time to time these blunders have been added to by other action and the mining industry has been crippled rather than aided by congressional interference. The prospect, however, for a reme dy U not fluttering, for tiic number of those who are posted on mining mat ters who are to be members ol the next congress form an insiguificant minority, aud of these, many members of the delegation from this western country, could not be couuted ou for any action but what wtmld subserve their own stilish ends. Our only hope, therefore, is that congress may devise some means to cnlighteu our senators and representatives so that they can act more intelligently. Of all the plans that have been proposed is that of the Appointment by act of congress of a mining commission, which should include the best mining experience, the best legal brains, the best statesmanship, and the most res olute integrity the country affords, with unlimited tinio and ample means to investigate aud report what is needed in t lie premises. And all this would of course have to be supple mented by a legal and constitutional respect for existing rights. Tiik attaches ot the military post at White Wiver. Colorado, are of the opinion (hat there will be agencial Ute war in the spring. This impres sion is said to be. shared by all the whiles beyond the range, and so strongly are they persuaded that this opinion is correct that traders are not takinr'iii their usual supply of goods on (hi- account. Colorado has suf fered too much alieady from the nam by-pamby policy of the Indian bureau, and if her people ever had cause for jllilieation it will be on the 4th of March, when Carl Sehuiz is relieved from the portfolio of the Interior department. His i the blame and discredit for much of the unhappy Ule difficulties, aud if Presidcut Gar field U uoxious to be '-solid" with the people of Colorado, Xew Mexico and neighboring territories, some inau, like ex-Senator Hitchcock ofXebras ba who has lived long enough in the west aud has grown into sympathy wit h the people to know how to deal with such problems should be called into the cabinet. lint to appoint "Prints" Charlie.
