eongress, und was elected by a plural
ity of 6,713. White in the House he
received the distinguished honor for
so young u member, of being placed
on the ways and means committee, lie
was re-elected to congress the follow
ing term, which was a signal victory
inasmuch as the state had been reap
portioned into ongressional districts,
the new iHstriet being strongly repuL
lican. In 1894 Mr. Bryan ran for the
United States senate, his opponent
being Senr.tor Thurston. As tiie state
was heavily Republican, Bryan was
defeated. It was during thiscampaign
that Bryan and Thurston conducted a
series of joint debates, which attracted

characterized by a spirit of f riendliness
and fairness on the part of both con
testants. On September 1, 1814, Mr.
Bryan became chief of the editorial

the leader. While In this city last
spring, he spoke to almost 15,000 people
in the Velodrome, and, although he
had spoken twice before that day his
superb convictions were conveyed to
his hearers by a stronsr voice and im

The western half of the United
States today supports a population
ranging somewhere around five mil
lion. Much of this population has been
attracted by the cry of goid, and th
capital invested to-day m western
mines is enormous. Yet it is not
tithe of the amount which the valu
of the mineral laden ore of the west
warrants; only these minerals are
locked largely in the grasp of the ari
belt. Water is what is needed. Hill
and mountains of extreme richness li
undeveloped and desolate, surrounded
by barren deserts or sagebrush plains,
Capital is slow to venture into such
places, even with gtuat mineral wealth
in sight. Gold is not the only metal,
tons of which are locked in the rocky
bosoms of the western sierras, but all
the family of baser metals are richly
represented and the question of trans
portation enters largely into their
mining. Railroads will not follow
mining camps alone. But reclaim the
arid lands of the west; give to them
a settled agricultural population, and
here too will be a source whence to
feed tha men and the mules that work
the mines; feed them at reasonable
rates. Many a torrent of great volume
rushes down the slopes during the
period of melting snows and spreads
away in a glistening stream across the
brewn plain, but before a crop can be
rajsed its volume has wasted aud its
bed become dry sand. Yet stow this
water in a mountain reservoir and it
would afford a perennial supply capa
ble of irrigating laud whose fertility
has never felt the washing, weakening
power of rain. Then, along with the

Saturday witnessed the oigbty-see-ond
birthday of the venerable pa
triarch, B. P. Johnson of Mesa. His
children number forty-two, and his
descendants to the third generation
number several hundred.
That th3 eastern manufacturer is
awakening to the possibilities of an
irrigated west as a market for his pro
ducts is shown t3 some- extent iu the
rem&rks of Mr. Tom L. Cannon, the
representative of an Eastern manu
facturing association, at the recent
trar-smississippi Congress. Mr. Cannon
said iu part, "if the water that goes to
waste in the Mountains of the arid
regions; were stored and controlled it
would save to the Federal government,
by preventing floods in the overflowed
lauds along the Mississippi river, more
than the cost of construction and oper
ation of reservoirs. If arid Aineriea
were made humid, the crops produced
would give to the Federal government
revenue in the way of increased taxa
tion ; millions of people would be em
ployed ; millions of homes would be
established, and the richest country
ever known to the world of commerce
would be developed.
"If steps were taken for the con
struction of storage reservoirs by the
Federal government for tho reclama
tion of arid America, the next fifty
years would show a ratio of increase
in population far greater in this sec
tion than during the past fifty years.
"I believe it to be the duty of every
man who is interested in populating
the western half of this hemisphere as
densely as the eastern half is populated,
to aid in the reclamation of arid
America through irrigation by means
of Federal storage .reservoirs, which
will serve the double purpose of irri
gation supplies and flood projectors."
Some miners at the San Simon min

Pass, last week prospected an old
shaft which long had been abandoned.

feet wide. They took a sample of it

to contain thirty per cent of copper
and six and eight-tenths ounces of

the abandoned shafts of this camp
carry such ore what must there be in
the properties that the owners thought
worth saving? Lordsburg Liberal.

Beard, was a man of means and abil

idea of a road which would give a mer

close connection with a seaport and a
resultant decrease in freight rates.
He obtained concessions from the
Mexican government for that part of

of the line. He secured the interest
