Los Angeles Times Iturlal. Feb. 12, 1901. Jons Davhsport has mounted the .itorial tripod of our esteemed coo mporary this week, and we shall ok for nothing but genial expres ne where heretofore the reverse has eu found, so far as the Tribukr is ncerned. Tub Indiana Legislature has enacted law providing that the office of leriff shall be vacated when a prisnn ; in his charge is lynched, and the eriff must show to the satisfaction of e governor that he was not remiss in s doty before he is restored to duty, lis is a good law. A pirrmon to the Board of Super iors, asking that Florence be disin rporated, is being circulated and fry generally signed. The taxpayers ' come to the conclusion that a ayor and Common Council Is an 'namental appendage that they can !t along very well without. Too bad ! too bad ! The legislators ive been compelled to pay fare on the loenis street ears, and now one of em has in trod need a bill providing r a license tax of $100 a year on ch car. In the language of the im ortal Byron : line at last makes all things even, -td if we do but watch the hour ere never yet was mortal power at could evade, if unforgiven, e patient search and vigils long him who treasures up a wrong.

Though adt Benjamin Harrison will live, ved and honored in the hearts of his nntrymen, after the McKinleys and tevelands are long forgotten. Thk threats of western senators that further appropriations for rivers and rbors shall be made until reservoirs it the arid lands of the west are pro- tied for have been met by counter treats of cloture rules similar to those i the Housa. Regarding the passage ! such rules, the New York World iys: In 1KS0 Stephen A.

The route ropoted Is the ideal one for passing aroiigh ArUaaa from east to west nd avoiding the mountain ranges, esidea it would pass through rich nd fertile valleys and give the travel r an entirely different impression f our fair territory from that pre iiil' pained in the overland trip. The steer-tying contests at Phoenix are getting to be so numerous that the old cows running loose around that burg lay down on their backs and hold up their legs to be tied as soon as they see a cowboy approaching. To-MORigw will be St. Patrick's day. Out of respect to the patron saint of Ireland and our illustrious ancestors of several generations removed, no paper will be issued from this office on that day. Two Visions. ingkksoi.l's eulogy of whisky. . I send you some of the most wonder ful whisky that ever drove the skele ton from the feast or painted land scapes in the brain of man. It is the mingled souls of wheat and corn. In it you will find the sunshine and shadow that chased each other over the billowy fields; the breath of June, the carol of the lark, the dew of niiht, the wealth of summer and autumn's rich content, all golden with , im prisoned lltrht. Drink it and you will bear the voices of men and maidens singing the "Harvest Home," mingled with the laughter of children. Drink It, and you will feel within yonr blood the startled dawns, the dreamy, tawny dusks of many perfect days. For forty years this liquid Joy has been within the happy staves of oak, longing to touch, the lips of men. TUB DIRKFUL WORK OF WHISKY. By J, M. Buckley, D.D.I I send yon some of the most wonder ful whisky that ever brought a skele ton into the closet or painted scenes of lust and bloodshed in the brain of man. It is the ghost of wheat and corn crazed by the loss of their natural bodies. In it you will find a transient sunshine chased by a shadow as dark as an arctic midnight in which the breath of June grows icy, and the carol of the lark gives plaee to the foreboding cry of the raven. Drink it, and yon shall have "woe," "sorrow," "babbling" and "wounds without cause." "Tour eyes shall be hold strange women" and your heart shall utter perverse things. Drink it deep, and yon shall hear the voices of demons shrieking, women wailing, and worse than orphaned children mourning the loss of a father who yet lives. Drink it deep and long, and ser pents will hiss in yonr ears, coil them selves about your neck and seize yon with their fangs; for "at the last it biteth like a serpent and sliogeth like an adder." For forty years this liqnid death has been within staves of oak, harmless there as purest water. I send it to you that you may "put an enemy in yonr mouth to steal away your brains." And yet I call myself your friend. Hay-Pauncefote Treaty Rejected. Washisotoit, March U. Answer of the British government to the amend ments to the Hay-Pauncefote treaty made by the senate was received to day. The answer of the British Is a dignified but complete rejection of the amendments and places npon the United States government the res poo sibility for further action. A minister was one day walking along a road, and to his astonishment he saw a crowd of boys sitting in front of a ring with a small dog in the center. When he came up to them he pnt the following question: "What are you doing to the dog?" Oue little boy said, "Whoever tells the biggest lie wins it." "Oh," said the minister, "I am surprised at yon little boys, for when I was like you I never told lies." There was silence for awhile, nntil one of the boys shouted," Hand him up the dog."

San Francisco, Dr. Claypool introduced an irriga' tion bill allowing each county board of supervisors to provide for a board of water commissioners, three in number, to be elected by the people, whose duty it will be to sit as a board of arbitra' tion. The bill was read twice and re ferred to the committee on ways and means. MR. MAXWELL IN PHOENIX. He Visits Arizona at Request of Prominent Citizens. (From toe Arizona Republican. Mr. George H. Maxwell, executive chairman of the National Irrigation association, arrived here Monday after noon and will be in the city for the next week or ten days. He is here in response to the invitation extended to him last fall by the Maricopa county water storage committee, and which he has been unable to accept at an earlier day, owing to legislative mat ters that have been pending in Wash ington. With the exception of his abort visit here a year ago last December, when he delivered an address on the subject of irrigation at the opera house, this is his only visit to Phoenix since the meeting of the irrigation congress four years ago. He says that since that time, indeed, since bis last visit a year ago, great progress has been made in the moulding of a sentiment favorable to the government irrigation of arid lands. In speaking to a reporter for the Republican last night, he said that the business men and manufacturers of the east were rapidly falling in with the idea, as they are beginning to real ize what the development of the arid west means to them in the opening up of a wider market. The labor organi zations are also becoming interested, as they realize that in times of depres sion or an overplus of workmen the great west, if open for settlement, will act as a safety valve on industrial mat ters, and no doubt prevent many troubles that would otherwise spring up. But the most notable thing of all, he says, is the growth of the irrigation sentiment in congress. He considers that the senate may safely be considered friendly to the west and willing to treat irrigation questions liberally, while there is a rapid changing of opinion In the house in favor of aiding irrigation. In illustration of how sentiment has changed in congress, Mr. Maxwell gave a short resume of the treatment accorded irrigation measures in the last two years. He said that the appro priation in the river and harbor bill two years ago passed the senate after a hard fight. This year the appropria tion, in a larger amodnt, passed the senate without a dissenting vote. Last year the senate raised the appropria tion of the hydrographic division from f 100,000 to 1250,000 after a spirited de bate, several eastern senators strenu ously objecting. This year it wai raised from $100,000 to $200,000 with' ont a dissenting vote. ' The San Carlos matter last year failed to get out of the committee, though only 25,000 was asked for. This year the committee re ported favorably and raised the appro priation to $100,000, amending it to not only complete surveys bnt to begin work on the fonndation for the dam. It passed the senate by a large ma jority. Up to this session the subject baa never been discussed in the house, This year both the irrigation and pub lic lands committees took it np and held frequent hearings during the last month of the session and both com- mitees reported favorably on irrigation bills creating a construction fnnd, by setting apart the proceeds of the sale of public lands of the west for that purpose. The bills were reported too late for consideration this session. The senate amendments to theap. propriation bills were defeated in con ference, 'party owing to the vigorous objection of the house conferees to hav ing legislation on this important sub ject come in the shape of riders on the appropriation bills. All that Is needed, says Mr. Max well, is an organized effort on the part of those residing in the sections Inter ested, and he feels sure that some great things can be accomplished at the next session. The only thing to contend with is the lack of information on the subject by members of the low er house, whose entire attention has been taken up by other matters and who when favorably impressed by a measure are influenced by some other congressman, who has a purpose in defeating the legislation at issue. He says if the proper influences are brought to bear to ioform the members of the lower house on the subject, as has been done in the case of the up per house, there will be no tronble. Mr. Maxwell will in all probability address the people of the valley on the subject some time during his visit here. Now really, does it not seem as if this steer-tying character of entertain ment is getting a little monotonous? Why not try a game of mnmbledepeg on the next consignment of eastern visitors?
