The most likely plan that would engage the attention of congress in be half of the arid west is to secure the construction of reservoirs to supply the Indians with water. The Pimas, Maricopa and Papagoes are good farmers. On the Salt River reserva tion just above Tempe there are 75,000 acre of irrigable land ; on the Gila Eiver reservation there are at least 125,000 acres. Both these tracts are irrigated, from the Gila and Salt Biver. There is not a surplus to supply the Indian. There are 400 Indians, Pimas and Maricopas on the Salt Biver reser vation and 800 Maricopas, most of them on the Gila River reservation. Then there are 2.5C0 Papagoes south of the Southern PaciBo railway line. These Indians are excellent farmers, the best worker of any tribe in the territory. They are nomad and have had no lands : allotted to them. Should the government make pa appropriation and put in the Buttes reservoir or a number of smaller dams, these In dians would be supplied. They have ever , been friendB to the whites and have helped them in battle against the Afacbes. The Maricopa and Pima have always been self-supporting and it is no more than right that the gov ernment should come to their aid and solve the water question. The action would incidentally be beneficial to the white man, as well. If half the money spent in going to the Klondike bad been spent in New Mexico and Arizona mines, opening new properties, the gold output would be double that reported from the frozen north. Tombstone Prospector. Last Monday evening Wm. H. Beard gave a house-warming at his home four mile west of town.

Awarded Highest Honors World's Fair, It is not every man who has the pleasure of reading bis own obituary notice. Judge W. H. Benson is now enjoying that sensation. Last week the Los Angeles Record announced his demise and said : "At the time of his death, Mr. Benson was receiver of the Casa Grande Valley Canal company, end hsd done much to bring that needed irrigation svstem ud to a h'.o-h state of eHiciency. Mr. I'.enson bssl f Jar years occupied positions nftruitj aud in each of them left a clear reaurd. j His integrity was never questioned.;" j George P. Blair, superintendent of the Mammoth mine (gold,) at Mammoth, Pinal county, Bfty-one mile northeast of Tucson, stated to the writer that the St. Louis Gold Saving Company, man aged by the Anderson Bros., wonld have three years' work on the tailings of the Mammoth. The St. Louis company were making, it is reported, about $300 daily and the Mammoth Gold Mining and Milling Company $100, latter as a royalty. The Mammoth mine has been clearing for it owner $100 daily since renewal last spring, and is capable, so competent authorities state, of making $300 daily. The Mohawk, three mile from the Mammoth mill, will soqjb resume operations, having closed down ten days ago. G. W. Pittock in Mining Review. J.. J. Pompa, a Sonora cattleman, arl rived in town several days ago with a band of cattle for Zeckendorf Co. In crossing the line he received a permit to keep the horse used in driving the cattle, ten days in United States ter ritory. These permit are issued by the United States government to en? able Mexican cattleman to drive their stock across the line without beintf compelled to pay duty on the horses, U returned to Mexico within the itipu lated ten osys.
