Millions Involved. The Colorado Springs Gazette of June 28 contains the fall text of the petition of W. P. Dunham to the Secretary of the Interior asking that suit be instituted by the Government to set aside the patent to the Hull City placer at Cripple Creek, "Colorado. A careful reading of the fourteen col umns of closely printed matter can lead to no other conclusion than that the patent was obtained by perjury and fraud, as three of the principal witnesses have confessed their crime. On the showing made Secretary Hitchcock promptly issued an order to the Attorney General directing him to bring suit at once. Some of the most valuable mining property in Cripple Creek is involved in this con troversy and a number of the best lawyers .in the country are engaged in the case. Mr. Dunham has just returned to Colorado from Washington with his attorney, Gen. John W. Noble, of St Louis, and is- jubilant over his victory, ad there is now little doubt that he will recover the prop erty for which he has been so gamely fighting-.

Those who have already passed through this way with their big teams are Messrs. Mulcahy, Sears and Lou. English, and their reports are so favorable that it is more than likely that all the freighting will come through Florence again.

Wm. Wel come's name is on the DOtice as wit ness. Beavis' claim covers the loca tion of the Hudson reservoir company. Silver Belt. Globe is threatened with a shortage of water. Thewell of the Globe wa ter works which supplies the town has been sunk deeper several times, and "to-day bedrock was reached, which renders futile any further ef fort to increase the flow of water. The supply is now about 10,000 gallons, which will suffice for ordinary uses. The irrigatisn of trees and lawns will be prohibited, and patrons of the wa ter company are cautioned to practice the utmost economy in the use of wa ter, as in case nf fire the consequence might be disastrous.

Looking over the field at the close of the century it is seen that the United Stales stands practically alone among irrigation countries iu having left all the work of reclamation to the unaided efforts of private capital, and in the prodigality of the surrender of public control of -streams. In one respect the policy pursued has been successful. It has resulted in an en ormous investment (not less than $100, 000,000, and some estimates make it twice that sun) and the creation of taxable and productive wealth of many times the amouut invested. We have now about reached the limit of this sort of growth. There will be few large private investments in canals hereafter until we have better and more liberal , irrigation laws. En trance on the coming ceutury is con fronted by larger problems ; the stor age of flood waters, the interstate divi sion of streams, and the inauguration of an adequate system of public con trol, which will insure to tbo humblest handler of a shovel his share of the snows falling on mountains above his farm, no matter bow fur removed he may be. "The people in every state know where President McKinley stands." Chicago Inter-Ocean. Probably, until Mark Hanna or some other controlling spirit says "wlbble, wobble" I then he will wob ble. A few years ago he out-Bryaned Bryan as the champion of the free and unlimited coinage of silva', and loudly declaimed against the Cleveland poliuy of "attempting to demonetize one of the coins of commerce." He said Cleveland by so doing was trying to "make money the master and every thing else the servant," and conse quently had "left the side of the poor." But the siren voice of monopoly whis pered, and. be wobbled. He is now standing in Cleveland's shoes, and in turn is trying to "make money the master . and everything: else the servant." He also said it was "our plain duty to. give the Porto Ricans free trade; hut the sugar and tobacco trusts said "thumbs up," and he wobbled. He also said in his message to congress, April 11, I8U8, "I speak, not of forcible annexation ; that cans not be thought of, and by our code of morals would be criminal aggression." Then the spirit of militarism cast its glamour over him and filled his, bead with heroics, and he again wobbled and began to, criminally, aggress in the Philippines.. Perhaps the Inter-Ocean has private- advices audi knows just where he- now stands,, but to the general pu-blio ho is, much like the Irishman's flea when you think you've got him-you-don't know where he's at. National Rural. (From the Salt Lake Tribune. Where men own silver mines and are not forced to worn them, they might let the work drag for a few years, because as gold is increasing in this world, and as things are presenting themselves in China in ten years there will be such an immense volume of gold and such an immense demand for silver for the Orient that under natural laws silver will gravitate back to. parity with gold. Possibly the war in South Africa will, in a desultory manner, continue for some months yet, but probabilities are that the mines will be is full working blast within sixty days. In that event the product of the world's gold this year will probably reach. $300,000,000 and by another year, or by two years more at farthest, it will amount to $400 ,000, 000 and we shall hear the old moss- backs in the East begin to demand that a limitation shall be put on the coinage of gold lest money become too plenty and too cheap. In the meantime, with the Boxers boxed out, the demand for silver in China will be something tre mendous. Two years ago China wanted to borrow $100,000,000 in silver and her statesmen said it could without trouble absorb $100,000,000 a year for twenty years to come. That would give the people only $5j apiece. v Mr. II. S. Foreman waaatKogales this week, eu route to Altar with a mining company which, is developing some property about forty-five miles west of that place. Oasis.
