NeCord, ex-Governor of Ari zona, Stands on the Side of the People of the Entire West In Advocating a National Irrigation System and In Opposition to Cession or the Arid Lands to the Territory to be Later Parceled Out Among the Land-Crabbing Corporations. l'lior.six, Ariz. I July 14, IS'.!-.), lo 1 he Editor of the Eni-rpri.c: At the risk of being- called a man with a hobby, I desire to reply to 'an editorial in the Republican of last Thursday morning under the caption of "I'iutii'jj tiie Mun of Straw," iu. which the Republican replies to an article in the Los Angeles Times. In that article the Times among -other things says: "No section of the United States would be benefited more than Arizona through a complete and well considered plan of federal irri gation." That assertion is so self" evident that even those who favor the plan of giving the lands to the terri tories do not deny it. Again the Times in the same article says: "It is some what surprising to find any support in that territory for a plan which would place the lands in the possession of individuals, or companies, whose only object "would be to reap the greatest financial benefits." If the Times is in possession of information to tbe effect that there is any support in this terri tory among the people or among the newspapers, except the Republican, for such a policy, it has information that is not public here. Cp to the present time no newspaper in the terri tory except Mr. Randolph's has ad vocated the ceding of the arid lands to the territory. A few years ago the Arizona Daily Star, white its editor was governor, did advocate such a policy, bat that was when the Cary act was first passed. Since the complete failure of that act the Star has not, to my knowledge, advocated the giving of arid land to tbo WrHnrie. from the article in the Repubiieau it appear that tbi! main objection to a system of nailooal irrigation is that it will take too long to brie? it about. Juit how long- it will taka to induce the United States government 10 inaugurate aud j " out a Liitior.a s nysts-rt o I "an- gation, of course it fs impossible forj any man to say, but ii a weil organized opposition to such a system is inaugur ated it does not require much foresigt to see that such a system will never be inaugurated, while on the contrary, if the people in the arid belt are united and their representatives and senators work iutelligeutly to that end, the time when such a system will be com menced is near at hand. No man knows better than Mr. Randolph that the most effective way to oppose a na tional Bystein of irrigation is by ad vocating the giving of the arid lands to the territories. No man knows better than Mr. Randolph that the minute the national government parts with its title to the arid lands just that minute the government loses all interest in tbe matter of their irrigation. The Republican says the people of Arizona want the lands irrigated now and that they do not want to wait for the dim Utopian future. That ia, true, but does not the Republican know that the irrigation canals and dams that have been constructed by private in dividuals and corporations, though they have done much to reclaim a small part of tbe -desert, cannot and do not furnish water enough, to irri gate one-quarter of the lands their canals cover and are supposed to fur nish Water to irrigate. Uas anybody assurance that if the arid lands were ceded to the territories and the territories turned them over to other corooratious, that they would be any better supplied, with water than thoso already reclaimed? Does., the Republican think that, ths average Arizona legislature would be a safe body of men to guard the interests of the territory when a body of land worth from five to ten millions, of dollars was placed in its. charge and was at its disposal ? I am not of those individuals who think the average Arizona legislature is thoroughly ;bad on the contrary , I think the average Arizona legislature, is as good, as, tbe average. Arizona citizen, but I do think that if congress, should absolutely cede all the lands the gov ernment owns in Arizona to-day in a way the Republican advocates, that not one acre of it would be reclaimed and the title of not oue acre would remain in the territory after the lapse of two years.. But is the time when the government may take hold of this project ia "the duii ntopian future?" I don't believe it is. Ever since the. expiration. of the j second term of President Andrew Jackson a system of internal improve ments more or less expeusive has been carried out. An annual river and harbor bill carrying fifty or more millions is now passed with as much regularity and with more unaniminity than any other of the great appropria tion bills. In the last river and harbor bill there was inserted by the senate an item of "three hundred thousand dollars to begin a system of national irrigation for the arid lands." This the house refused to concur in, and congress in Its last moments was held for more than five hours in deadlock o"e- this 'tern. Senators and represen tatives from tli e west, yielded and al- 1 i.kwed this item, to go out only after the j lading men of. both senate aud housa J ltud faithfully promised that the next I bill should provide for this appropria j tion. In ail human probability the next river and harbor bill will contain an appropriation of at least three hundred thousand dollars "to begin a system of national irrigation.,." and when such a system is once begua nothing can slop it except the govern ment in an evil moment is induced to part with its title tathese 1 ands. Every great scheme of internal improvement that the government has been induced to foster and carry through has been by getting a small sum inserted in some appropriation bill to make sur veys, estimates of costs, etc., etc. This is' the way the Sault Ste. Marie canal, the Sturgeon bay, and Lake Michigan canjl and Fox and Wisconsin river canal was started. The government has taken the same course with the Nicaraguan canal which it will pro hably appropriate for at. the next session and it has substantially start ed on a system of natioual irrigation by appropriating $23,000 to ascertain, the cost of one reservoir in each state and territory. Every irrigation congress that has ever convened has resolved in favor of a national irrigation system and against any scheme for ceding the arid lands to the states and territories. There is no division of sentiment upon this question in any other section of the arid west, except in Arizona. Even in Wyoming, where the anthce of the Cary law, the lion. Jas. M, Cary, Uvea, the people ar ncaniiivtna againat ce..t.u the lands. This Bli-uiceat was ma.Je by Senator Warren rf Wyoming on t'.o ttoor ol tlie fceuate lBt Marou. Iv' j.v let the people of Arizona get in line '." .tu the people in other states and territories in the arid belt and all unite in favor of a nationr.1 system of irri gation and stop the foolish talk about ceding the iauds to the states and ter ritories aad tLe governrueut will in the very near future take hold of the mat ter, and . when that glad time comes, this now worthless arid bAl will . be the richest and best part of the United States, Statehood, and . a national system of irrigation is all Arizona needs to make it one of the grandest political divisions of this grand country. Both are in the power of eongress to give. Let us all work unitedly and harmoniously to that end. Mtbon II. McCokd. Tbe Arid Lands. . From the Solomonville Bulletin. To all interested in the future wel fare of Arizona tbe question of the ad equate water snpply is of paramount importance, for it must be conceded that the increasing demand unon the present supply threatens agricultural extinction. . The proposition to cede the arid lands ta the states and territories is wrong in theory, because individuals have not got the means to build res .ervoirs nor experiment with artesian welhsi hence, with tbe exception of a small part of. this class of land, it would for generations remain idle. Sueli lands might be good enough to advertise in eastern papers, to be sold as some mines are, but for practical farming purposes they would remain idle. There is a way to utilize this vast doi-uiii, by lbs aid cf, and at r.o ulti mate cost to the federal government ; and if those who make our laws would but consider the greatest good to the greatest number, and let the improve ment of "Mud creekV rest awhile, and turn their attention to the vast possi bilities of this rich land now lying idle for want of water, it is possible to formulate a plan to redeem, it and put it under.cultivation.. Here, for instance, is a tract of oneJ million aares of land suitable for irri gation and cultivation, adjacent a range.of mountains with an immense water shed, the waters from which during rains which, come quite regu lariy, run to waste Ia ancient river beds. Let the government build reser voirs, place the cost upon the land which is now worth absolutely noth ing, and sell it in small tracts to actual settlers, giving them ten, twenty or even. fifty years ia which to pay for it, 1 xss UiM Pawmwa diSSCIJUIEIY Makes the food more delicious and wholesome OVAL SAffNO POWOCB CO.. HPW YORK. with interest at say three or four per cent. When the. land is all sold the purchasers to own land and reservoirs; the government has principal and iuterest and millions of acres are thus reclaimed from desolation. This plan is possible aud feasible. More, it is practical. It would do vastly more for maniiiud Ihftii tW many schemes worked through by in terested congressmen for the improve ment of local duck pocds. and creeks not large enough for a birch bark canoe, and it is safe to say that unless Uncle Sam comes to car aid it will be many, many moons beforaany portion of this vast body of viafite, land, is utilized. Liquid Air at Two Cents a Gallon. From the San Francisco Examiner. An experimental test of a liquid air plant built after the designs of Oscar P. Ostertrren and Morriz Kurgerw was made recently in New York before many scientists and others interested in tbe new power. One of the principal objects of the experiment was to demonnlrate that it is possible to make liquid air at a cost which will render it useful for com mercial pccpo&es, and markc it a com mon in every household,., es; heat and light.. The. capacity, of the plant is fifteen hundred gallons a day, and during the actual running time of the machinery this average-was kept up - The fluid, looking like pure water, had a tem perature of about 400 degrees below zero and cost a trifle over 5 cents a gallon which i3 said to bj 15 cents less than any ever made before. The first gallon of liquid air ever made cost about $2,500. M. stprrrren de monstrated t j the satisfaction of the experts that it cc.n now be ma le for 2 cents u gallon. , The machinery comprising his plant i s o'.p-.pie, Rt l.-ie ou.y care necessary is to have reeet)t:-ci:i strong enough to sustain a very hi'h preuure. The air to bq. liuueiied is taken through a standpipe from above the roof of tbe factory, and ifter being washed and filtered is compressed until the gauge shows a pressure of 1,200 de grees. This pressure makes heat, so the compressed air, after beiug cooled by passing it through coils of pipe im mersed in water, is permitted to escape into a chamber where it expands in stantly and turns to liquid, which can be drawn from a receiver under the chamber. The air which does not liquefy pas ses again through tbe system and cools the in-coming air so that by t bis circula tion the temperature is kept below 312 degrees, at which temperature com pressed air becomes, liquid air. The process can be kept up for an indefinite period. . The value of liquid air as a refriger ant was shown in several appliances designed for use in an entirely new line. The fluid being chemically pure, an apparatus has been made to dis tribute it through hospitals,' hotels, private houses and other places so that any desired temperature may be main tained. It can be made cold enough inside a -house to make 'flannels a necessity, while the outside walls may be blistering from the heat. The only obstacle in the way of the extensive use of liquid air is the danger of explosion from heat. Mr. Ostergren has invented a narrier by wi.ieh,- ths fluid preserved in the new way is safe, and can be transported anywhere with out danger. A St. Louis paper of recent date contains an account of the.in.teteiicre of Mr, Brownlee aud five other Americana by native ' Indians in Brazil. Mr. Brownlee in company with J. II. Mills and two other ' parties left Prescott about three years ago in search of rich gold mines which the former claimed to know the location of. They were unsuccessful, andJdr. Mills returned, the others remaining in that country. Mrs.i Brownlee, wife of the murdered man, still resides here. Journal-Miner. : Indian, maize contains a kernel in which there is a yellow germ.

All should learn to know that whatever will eon- dace to the welfare of a town conot injure her citizens, says an exchange.

' as is air to sustain life. 1Ure are, ; however, iu every Ito.-.n a - fo.v jiin,: heads, who by stirring up strife, injure ' their best friends, and ignorantly persist in so doing. "Be careful of ' what you say, and when, and where, ' and how." Ode of the-'pretexts urged as an ex- cusa for subjugating the inhabitants of . the Philippine islands is, that they are , ignorant and incapable of self-government. I!rig.-Gen. Charles King, who recently returned from those islands, , holds a different opinion. In a letter to the '-Milwaukee-' Journal, he says , "the capability ' of the Filipinos ior-, self-government eannot be doubted, and if given a' fair start they could look out for themselves infinitely bet ter, than our people imagine." Gen. ' King has been there has fought them, and they -have "taught him to respect them. " According to a telegram from San Stise, John Sorg, formerly of Prescottv ' is defendant in a suit,' whereby Mrs. Bertha Liebbrandt of Santa Cruz,'1 California, seeks to recover $30,000 as a salve to soothe her broken heart. She t. alleges that Mr. Sorg agreed to marry her but married another woman. Mining Application. Xo. 69' Survey No. 1829. , UNITED STATES LAND OFFICE, ( ': Tucsos, Arizona, May 18, 1899.
