Congress Asked to Give $250,000 for le gation Surveys Vitally Important , . Workof the Geological Survey. The great importance to the west of the work which the irrigation branch pf the Geological Survey is doing is perhaps not as generally understood as it should be. For some years the sur vey has been working along on small appropriations, making" stream meas urements and reservoir surveys, but if the west is to attain its full develop ment through irrigation, this work should be pushed and reservoir sites should be determined, surveyed and set aside, subject to development by private capital or government enter prise. Persons familiar with reservoir engineering know that nature plays some queer pranks on individuals and that what appears an ideal place for water storage may in fact be incap able of holding water, while a site which seems to even the careful ob server to be anything but suitable for water storage, may in reality afford a situation for a reservoir of great pro portions. The general mistake of the average person, the Geological Surveyors say, is in thinking that a canyon with steep sides and a narrow neck, suitable for a dam site, will make a practicable res ervoir. There are many such sites and the dam construction would not be difocult, but the slopes are too precipitate and the amount of water impounded would not be sufficient to warrant the construction of the dam. The best sites must include a neck, of course, which can be readily dammed, while the slopes should be very gradual and the fall of the river slight, per haps imperceptible to naked ye, thus insuring a very large surface for stor age. The descent of some rivers is so rapid, that while to all appearances they afford good storage facilities, a dam of practicable height would not back up sufficient water to warrant construction. The catchment area of reservoirs as well as the annual flow of streams must likewise be considered. All these points can only be deter mined definitely by the surveyor's in struments, and so, if it is desired to have definite information upon which to work, either as regards private in vestment or ultimate government con struction, it is extremely important that this preliminary work should pro gress as rapidly as possible. Congress is being asked for a good sized appropriation this session with which to carry on this work, in amount 250,000, and the whole West, being vitally interested, will watch for a favorable action.

Hunk of Arizona, Prcscott, Arioiia,. Hostility to irrigation legislation has developed in the east, from time to time, broad minded expressions among men liberal enough to see that what build3 up one part of the country must reflesibly help all other parts. It is pleasing to note that such a far eastern paper as the Boston Transcript recognizes the fact that irrigation ap' propriations for the west would be na tional investments, in the interests of and for the benefit of all the people of the United States. Quite a part of the annual outlay of the nation, the Transcript says, is an investment rather than an expend iture. Publie buildings are direct in vestments, obvious to everybody, be cause they save rental to the govern ment. In the case of certain other appropriations, the investment aspect. while just as genuine, is so indirect as to escape attention. An appropri ation for the improvement of lioston harbor would be an indirect invest mest. The cost of transportation is one of the great public charges, the rates of which bear directly upon the fortunes of everybody. A deep channel to Boston makes possible large ships and therefore low freight rates. The government in spending monoy for such improvements makes easier the future burden of its citizens and as the interests of the citizen, and the State are identical, this becomes an investment pure and simple. It is the same story, continues the Transcript, with all worthy river and harbor imrovements'; they are national investments. Irrigation expenses, in so far as they provide for permanent works, come under the same head. National expenditures of the invest ment sort should be encouraged, es pecially when the country is so prosper ous that it can bear its burden well as against the time of greater stringency. It takes but slight study to see that an irrigation appropriation applied to any one section would almost immedi ate! v help other sections. If the west An fee tad man. - Necessity makes compassionate. It takes smart person to take the hint every time. The men most cursed are- generally the ones most missed. The world's wrongs are of individuals, mistakes. No man , ever wounded but left a scar on himself. A man's love for a woman is no deeper then she makes it. It takes a keen hearing to detect the soft knock of opportunity. When women cease to pray the devil will pre-empt the world. The peaks of onr ambition make the low valleys of our despair. We turn down a chance in a minute and spend a life time in regret. There's plenty of women for every man, but few men for every woman. The man you have to kill to conquer is the one who wins out in the end. Day dreams are generally followed by a girl till they change into night mares. -Every man's life has been lived right, who can truly say he isn't afraid to die. A man with a hobby is most times a smart man,, and a "crank" is a progressionist. Doing another man wrong only draws interest in your favor for 70 years at the most. If angels are women it's to be hoped that they can't quarrel like their earthly sisters. The man or "woman who always ' guess or suppose so," never won a battle in any walk of life. . The best trait a man or woman can posssess is to say "yes" or "no" in a manly and womanly way. The world's engaged in the sama mission it was 1900 years ago only with improved appliances. The strongest nature is the one that can keep on fighting, regardless wheth er the lamps are lighted or not. It is an easy matter for a woman to fall in love with a shiftless man ; but few men fall in love with a shiftless woman. No old road leads to success. Every fellow has to build a new one and his success depends entirely on his ability to remove the cobble stones. (From the Phoenix Republican. 5 Here is good news for Phoenix and important if true. While the delegates from Florence to the democratic terri torial convention were waiting at Casa Grande on Tuesday night, they were entertained at great length by a woman named Mrs. William Beard, who is go ing to tap this town with a railroad. She has, she says, a concession from the Mexican government for a line from a bay south of Topolobampo. The concession embraces 10,000 acres of land and a Kubsidy of $10,000 a mile, besides other valuable inducements from the states of Sonora and Sinaloa, and other Mexican states through which the railroad is going to run. It will enter the United States at a point near Lenoria, about twenty miles east of Ndgales, and will thence be run in a general northwesterly direction to Phoenix. What is to be done after that is yet to be determined. Mrs. Beard said she had an offer of $50,000 to build to Deming instead of to Phoe nix, but she had declined for the reason that her husband, an experienced rain ing man, who died in Alaska, told her that central and northern Arizona was the richest and most promising mineral region in the world. Besides $50,000 is a bagatelle hardly worth considering since she is backed by capitalists of the Hague to the ex tent of $44,000,000. Another aggrega tion of capitalists have since wanted to put $S0,000,000 into the enterprise on account of the attractive character of the Mexican concession, but she de clined the offer on tha ground that $44,000,000 was enough. A branch line of the road will be built to Topolobampo, that settlement having been turned over to her by the Mexican government, the original con proportion as they are advocated or ; posed by the people who live in sn towns and on farms, because the ev ings of sueh people are devoted reading and reflection, or to fashioned visiting, which means an change of views and frequent disc sion.

Printers' Ink gives an interesting excerpt from an address delivered by Congressman Landis of N. Y., on The Evolution of the Country Editor. Pass ing over the contrast drawn to show the great difference between the coun try editor of twenty-five years ago, when his lot was a hard one, and the editor of the present day, when his work is easy everywhere except in Arizona, perhaps let us see what the gentleman from New York hs to say in another connection : "The country newspaper men of to day really mould the sentiment of the republic, and have done so for the lust fifty years.
