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-. Big-hearted and generous,
we know of no man whom millious
will be less , likely to spoil than
William P. Dunham, of Mineral Creek,
Pinal county, Arizona.

reports Globe to be quite lively, though
the weather was very warm there and
he was glad to get back where the
gentle and cooling zephyrs sweep
across the prairies. Globe is too shut
in by the mountains.
A number of freighters between Bed
Bock and Kelvin are now coming
through Florence, claiming that the
road is bvtter altbough somewhat
longer, enabling them to make better
time. 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.
Acting upon the petition of a major
ity of the tax-payers of Florence, pray
ing for incorporation, the Board' of
Supervisors granted the same and ap
pointed Ramon Arballo, J. G. Keating,

feasible. 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.

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. Silver Belt. ' ' '

The Future of Silver.
Federal Irrigation Coming.
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
