From the Los Angeles Times. The Pittsburgh Dispatch, in a recent article, discoursing of what it is pleased to term "irrigation at public expense," advances some plausible arguments againt the irrigation of the arid lands of the United Stales under government auspices. These argu ments, though plausible, are one sided and untenable. They are made from the standpoint, or the imaginary standpoint, of the eastern farmer, and it is assumed that he will necessarily be injured by the development of the rid regions of the Great West. It is i further assumed that t!io government i will, ot ueee-i-i ;tv, be put to fnonnni expense iu the bringing of these arid lands uudcr irrigation. The art-U-lo proceeds as follows: "Naturally, the people of tlw serai arid regions of the West, nud those who are prepared to settle in those, or the arid regions, are favorable to. gov ernment appropriations for irrigation, as is indicated by the writer of a spe cial article. Just as naturally farmers in other sectious, East, South, and West, are bitterly opposed to the idea. They oppose it because they are con vinced they could not compete in any market with "the farmer who has his lands irrigated free-.. Agriculture in the- arid and semi arid regions, with irrigation, is the 1 ideal of farming. Crops are as nearly under control ee-it is possible to have them. Much better results can be ex pected than where- rainfall has- to be depended upon, for moisture, and there is never any washing- away of the rich soil from the surface. Of course, if the water must bo- paid for, it will ab sorb the surplus profit, but if the gov ernment gires-those regions free irri gation they will be able to prodnce much more- cheaply, than the rural re gions of Pennsylvania ox Ohio. "This country is an exporter of agri cultural products,, and it is claimed that while thia is so it would be un just for the government to irrigate lands to-create a. surplus production, thereby lowering prices or driving less fortunate farmers out, of business. It id Uv h.1 th,it hrigiili in will justiea,. that private euterprise will j p!ovise the necssstry work? as rapidly a a. market is- evl..wi! for the nd'i- ! tiiu.al product. This view is not aytee able to those .vho, nro inter cited in having- their lands irrigated at public expense ; but it is likely to pre vail eu uccosnt of the Tested interests in lunds-not irrigated and the private eapital already invested in irrigation reservoirs, caroals and artesian wells." In this last sentencathe Pittsburgh paper seenis.to be laboring under the total, delueioa that present owners of arid lands lands not public or unap propriated are asking and expecting government irrigation for their hold ings. Nothing could be further from the truths Is is the arid public lands for which irrigation ia. advocated, in order that they, may be made fit for production sold; at proper prices to intending settlers, and made by their laboE to ''blossom as the rose,' the government thus., recouping itself for all its original expenditures, and at the same time doing a vast general good. The assumption that the govern ment would lose a large amount of money through the irrigation of the arid lands at public expense is gratui tous. The initial cost of. the under taking,. H is quite true,, would be heavy. Bat the government would be able to secure quick.- reimbursement for all its expenditures in this direction by the sale of the lands to settlers at prices greatly in excess of those which the lands would bring without irrigation-. In point of fact, the greater propro tioa ot these landa are practical ly worthless without water for irrigation, and water for irrigation can be ob tained only by the establishment ot extensive and comprehensive irriga tion systems, the magnitude of which is quits beyond the grasp of private enterprise, and which are possible only under some general system di reeted a,nd controlled by the national government, exercising the right of emineut domain, and controlling the Bourses of supply and the avenues of distribution. Government irrigation is preferable to irrigation under private auspices, principally for the reason that government irrigation could be in avigurated on a scale of magnitude and comprehensiveness impossible to pri vate- enterprise, even under the most favorable conditions conceivable.'. Although the adoption of a com preUensivo system of government ir rigation would involve a comparatively large- initial outlay, the ultimate cost to tbe government would be nothing ; for,, as . stated above, the lands could readily be sold to settlers at prices fruilioient to reimburse the government Be S we Afcot for Was there ever so high and decisive a test of the baking powders as that by the Government Chemists at the World's Columbian Fair? The tests then made by the official experts showed that Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder was the purest, strong est, most healthful of baking powders, and a diploma and. medal were awarded' accordingly Surely such .testimony, must establish the' use of Dr. Price's Cream .Baking Pow- I IV : 1XX1N3 POVVDU3 CHICAGO. for al moneys, together with interest ' thereon,. expended-in the installation of irrigation systems. More than this, the government could provide for the cost of maintenance in perpetuity, by charging a. fixed,, rate for the water furnished, which would do awav with any complaint aa.to "free irrigation." The alleged hostility of the eastern farmer to the irrigation of the arid lauds, of the West probably has little or no real existenoe-in fact. It cer tainly has none in reason-. This is a great and grewiiig. country. Its wants and its need are ranidlv exDsndioc: its population is increasing, and its exports to foreign.-lands are steadily growing larger. If all the arid lands of the West were placed under irriga tion and were occupied by indus trious farmers, the resulting competi tion would inflict little appreciable in jury upon the eastern agriculturist, so trifling would it be in . comparison to the vastegrieul Unpad resources of the satire country. Moreover, when these irrigated public lands have once been placed upon the market, . the eastern buyer has the same chance to acquire theai as has the western farmer the farmer in the arid regions.. All will be placed upon a level in -that regard. The western farmer can have no spe cial privileges granted to hiin by the government; he cannot monopoliza tht cnoice irrisatea lanas so thrown upon the market.. Government irrigation of its own arid lands thus becomes a national, not merely a sectional bene fit a benefit vast in itsoutreaehing effects and of inestimable value to the whole country. The Bryan Group of Mies Special Correspondence. Globe, August 10th, 1899. Editob Tribbke : 1 have been visit ing the W. J. Bryan group of mines last week, owned by Mrs. Alfred Kinney of Globe. I sea since I last visited the property that there has been quite a ' "i ueveiopment worn done; one shaft, which is 100 -feat deep and is. called Bryan No. 1, is timbered in first class, style equal to anything in the territory There is a vein of pre: which is-5 feet wide and averages from 1-i to Jo per cent copper showing up. The mines -at the present tune are in good working condition, ready f jr stoping out ore. On the adjoining claim kuovvn as Bryan No. 2, there is When aa article oi-preparaiioi food, prudent consurncio themselves, as tQ its from purity an horn: 1 ir,' 11 a! i..ik:n ;wdcrs were es-cl'.id.-d !'-; cu".-i-.!cri::-rs at this great (Vi.;.i;'.; ! .-" t..jy are occtiiol neither reliable nor wholesome. - CO., shaft 100 feet deep which is also timbered ' in first class style and shows a magnificent body of sulphide ore; the vein is full width of shaft and averages over. 10 per eeat copper. There has been no cross- cutting done on this vein, and don't know the width ef'ora body; there has also been quite a lot of work on Bryan No. 3. This year there has been -100 foot drift run, showing up a magnificent ore bidy on the claim. There are 9 claims belonging to this group; there is ore enough on the ground to run a 40 ton jacket 12 months without prospecting, and what there is in sight from No. 2 shaft done. I -make a rough calculation of what will be produced from the 100 foot shaft with a drift of 200 feet long and 5 feet wide and the value of pro duct, averaging ore at 8 per cent and copper bullion at 10 cents par pounl, 100 feet deep 200 feet long and 5 feet wide, will give an ore body of 100,000 cubic feet, allowing 13 cubic feet to a ton, would be 7832 tons of ore, which at 8 per cent will produce 617 tons copper bullion, which at 10 cents per pound will amount in value to $123,000, not considering gold, silver, sulp huric acid and other valuables which may be in the ores. Mrs. Kinney values her property at ($100,000) one" hundred thousand dollars, end I consider it none too high an estimate. Mrs.' Kinney deserves great credit for the pluck and enterprUa shown ia tak ing hjld of thii p op r.f fri a b i ginning -and carrying it through 'until now she- has a well developed mine, ready for some enterprising company to take hold of and carry, out the work of producing and making EiveraWe camp, as it ought to be, one of the best camps of the Territory. Prospector. A young bachelor sheriff wassailed upon to serve aB attachment against a beautiful young, widow. He accord ingly, called' upon her and said. "Madam, - I have an-attachment f ar you," The widow blushed aod said hrs attachment was ' reciprocated. "You mistake me," ' said he, "you mast proceed to court." "I know it is leap year, bnl I prefer yort to do the courting," replied she.

He says he planaed the Folsom train. ' robbery, but was not there, ,and re ceived his share of the booty from a member of the gang. He was about to leave for South America when cap-' tured. Ketchum has beea identified by the ' officer of Yavapai eounty as the Camp Verde murderer, and a requisition was ' made to-day for his return to Arizona. Black Jack Is now in the hands of the -United States-officers "at Santa Fe", N.- -M. The officers are certain that they ' have the sure enough Ketchum this time. The llarqua Uala mine was not sold at auction. The highest bid for the ' mines was $5,010", which' was promptly.' rejected by C. II. Lindley, attorney and auctioneer. A number of bidders were present but all seemed rather iimiu anu iue sale was a uiaappoiui, ment. A. G. Hubbard, who sold the -mines to the present owners a few-' years ago for $1,250,000, was the high-"" est bidder.
