In er to demonstrate our ability to govern v peoples we must show a better record those now in our care." Prof. F. H. veil, in a lecture in Washington, Dec .890. KDOnsTKDLY-the first work in irrigation Ich the government should undertake is construction of a dam on the Gila River Jan Carlos, in Arisoiia, because this im Vf ment n otiid not only bring uudercul ttion a large area of arid land for the r of white settlers, but would also relieve urgent needs of thousands of friendly lians, who are now in a starving condi a because the water upon which they e been dependent for centurleti has been erted by white settlers above them, is Improvement would be not only a strik- ' object lesson of the advantage of irriga- B en a large scale, but also an act of rcy and justice. Los Angeles Times ltorlaL Feb. 12, 1D01. . Thi appointment of Fred Funston to Brigadier General in the regular By was a prompt recognition of tbe ring capture of Agninaldo by the incible little Kansan, K man who boists of his liberality d public spirit generally refuses to y his honest debts. Sui:h an individ 1 is indebted to the Tribune five liars for subscription just tbe ount of his quarterly city license. Tuk elections in the east this week in e large cities have generally gone tuocratic, three particularly in which e greatest interest was taken. Rolls ells was elected mayor of St. Louis, rter Harrison mayor of Chicago, and m Johnson mayor of Cleveland. It is said that Albert Steinfeld has kin secured control of the Bay Mines, d will sooa begin active operations the property. At the recent election directors in London the interests the wealthy bankers Seligman of tw York and Mr. Steinfeld represent a majority of the stock, and the rri;?ijuien stepped clown and oat lis fine property has been teiribly smanaged, but will soon come to the nt under businesslike American eon- 1. Competent men, regardless of tionality , will be employed, and none ier. Tbe Tribune has this straight. d it can be depended on. The oew law which goes into effect the 1st of next September increases :aries of all officers in fourth, fifth d sixth-class counties. The sheriff made ex-officio assessor, and the dis ci attorney, treasurer and recorder 11 receive $1250 a year. Tbe latter 11 also get one-half the fees for re rding mining locations (50 cents'), d tbe supervisors may allow him tra pay for a clerk. Tbe probate ge's compensation is also increased, d certain fees of the sheriff over lich there has been some dispute are ide legal charges. The allowance of ch supervisor has been increased to X) a year. And tbe tax-payers pay e freight. Tub thousands of old Tocubstoners ittered over the world will be glad learn that E. B. Gage has consoli- ted the Grand Central, Contention d roughnut interests, and will at ce reopen those wonderfully rich Des oo a grander scale than ever. It a mistake to suppose that the prod' t of Tombstone was exclusively ver, ss good value in gold is in all e ore, while the ore bodies at and low water level are immense. Tbe ubuhk man believes from a long and timate acquaintance with tbe prop- ties, which have paid their tens of .Hious in dividends, that Tombstone 11 again resume its proud position , tbe leading ininicg camp of Arizona. Ts statement has been made that t b Paul was the first sheriff of chise county, which is incorrect ongh he was sheriff of Pima county ben it comprised what is now chise. In the election in 1880 Paul is defeated on the face of the re rns, but in a contest it was stown .at half a dozen of Curly Bill's tiers at Han Simon cast something er a hundred votes against him ley drank and voted all day, and ong towards night, just before the ills were to close, Curly Bill re' arked, "Boys, this election has gone o one-sided to suit me, and just to i ow them fellers down at Tucson at there is do coercion in this camp "am going to give Bob Paul one." od so the returns showed that one te was all he got, but the precinct ?m thrown out and Paul was elected. The .lefferson Democrat, published at llillsboro, Mo., one of the leading country newspapers of the State, was established in 18liG by Chus. D. Iteppy and Chas. A. Clurk, and is now owned and ably edited by R. W. McMnllen, brother-in-law of tbe former. Tbe fol lowing article taken from a receat is sue is convincing proof that the Dem ocrat is sound on the main issues now before the American people: Senator Carter of Montana has been harshly critioised for talking to death the River and Harbor appropriation bill. His action was ptobably without a parallel in the C.S.eongress. It is not uncommon for the minority in t he senate to take advantage of the rules of that body and prevent the passage of objectionable bills by contiuous speech making; but Senator Carter belonged to the majority and blocked a measure in which his party was interested and which had been passed by his friends in the house, Before condemning him it will be well to consider the circumstances and the reasons which impelled him to take the course he did. There is a vast section of this country to the west and northwest that is not pecun iarily interested In the improvement of the waterways for navigable purposes, but in tensely interested in the storage and control of water for irrigation purposes, With a supply of water that territory is capable of providing good homes for millions of people. Without water much of it will have to re main an uninhabitable desert. The Monta na senator is presumed to have been looking after the interests of people whom he repre sented. He wanted appropriations for res ervoirs for irrigation, and as the majority in congress had decided that there was not funds enough for that purpose and to also continue the work of Improving the rivers and harbors after providing for other gov ernment expenses, they refused his appro priations; and he adopted the only method left for keeping even. The proper question for the entire public to consider Is, Why is there not money enough for both the im provement of the rivers and the storage res ervoirs? The answer Ic easy. Too much is being spent in maintaining a, fnay of crim inal aggression. If instead of sacrificing thousands of American citizens and mil lions of American dollars in a war of con quest the money was spent la developing the territory already belonging to us, there is no telling how much good could be accomplished. The expenditure of money would not need to be increased a cent; the sacrifice of American lives would be stopped ; the administration would be com mended for keeping within the limits of the constitution and laws of the eountry, and the nation would resume its lost position as a friend of freedom and justice. Fkkd Nave was married this week to a handsome Negates widow, Mrs. Eliza Jones. Tbe jacking up he re- ontly g-oi at the nanus Of the terri torial press onght to prepare Fred for peaceful honeymoon. A more or less esteemed contempo rary advises its readers to "burry per sonal anisnosities." If it has refer ence to burying personal animosities, the Tribune quite agrees with it. Billy Spkars, . with bis snake stories, which he attributes to Judge Barnes, is usurping tbe prerogatives of our veracious friend Joe MulhattoD, and should be looked after. J. Porterie reports a bonanza silver strike by Jack Phifer and B. Monterey a mile and a quarter from tbe famous old Silver King of Pinal county. The two men have sank a shaft 35 feet deep striking a ven from two to two and a half feet wide and composed of stromierite or silver copper glance and ruby silver. An assay of the for mer ran 1000 ounces of silver to the ton and the latter 305 ounces. It is believed the strike is on tbe old vein of tbe Silver King which was lost some years ago. Enterprise. Word has been received here that another accident occurred in tbe Unit ed Verde mine at Jerome last Friday night, in which two men were killed, and four others seriously wounded. A number of holes bad been loaded ready for shooting, and the work of lighting the fuse was in progress. The fuse used was too short, and be fore all of them were lighted, the first one commenced to explode, causing accident. Journal-Miner. The latest slander on Missouri, the greatest State in the Union, is the fol lowing: A St. Louis "lunger," stop ping in Tucson, took a trip to Oraele, Pinal county. On his return a friend asked him the altitude of Oracle. The Missonrian's reply was, "It's pretty high teu dollars a week." While working in an exavation for the Tucson waterworks Tuesday, Christie Garcia and three companions were buried under a mass of caving ground. Garcia was instantly killed and the others were badly hurt. The dead man was a former resident of Tempe. Religious Notice. .

From the Globe Silver Belt. Chas, M. Clark and his son Gib re turned last Friday, accompanied by Mr. VY. Meridith, of the firm of Ben jamin, Hunt, Corey & Meriditb, elec trical engineers, of San Francisco. Mr. Meriditn's visit is for the purpose of making a critical examination of Mr. Clark's electrical transmission enterprise, and the organization of the company to carry on the project will aepena largely on Mr. Meriditn's re port. The party left Globe Sunday morn' ing for upper Salt river, where tbe generating plant is to be located, and they will spend three or four weeks in making the survey. Tl.ey will lay the grade for the canal ' to conduct the water from the intake at tae mouth of Cherry creek to tbe head of Medier gulch, from which point it is proposed to conduct the water in a pressure pipe to the wheels to be iostalied at the level of tbe river. Mr. Clark expects to. get a 300 foot head, and develop 4000 h. p., which with a liberal allow' ance lor loss or power will give an efficiency of 3000 h. p. It is proposed to transmit the power to Globe and to any point in tbe dis trict where it may be required to oper ate mines and reduction works and for lighting purposes. Tbe line will also be continued to Ray and Kelvin, and in the event of having a surplus of power above the requirements of the sections named, it would be prsctic able to extend the line to Phoenix at an additional cost of $50,000. Mr. Meridith's company is the most eminent firm of electrical engineers on the coast. They installed the Spreckles light and power system in San Fran cisco, and have a similar contract in Honolulu. Mr. Meridith personally superintended the construction of the great electrical power plant on the Coins tock, which was recently com pleted Railroad to La Cananeas. Prom tbe Tucson Star. Scott White, ex-sheriff of Cochise county, was at tbe San Xaviur on Sun day, accompanied by bis wife. E. A. McFarland, engineer in chief of the Green Consolidated Copper company's railroad interests, came with Mr. White. The latter had a long talk with Colonel Randolph, who was re cently driven to the Cananeas from Kaco by the ex-sheriff. Tbe latter held the ribbons over tbe finest pair of horses in Cochise county on that particular occasion, a fact, Mr. White was pleased to remark. Messrs. White aud McFarland were en route to San Francisco, where they are to meet Presideut Greene of the Greene Consolidated Copper Co., he having wired Mr. White that he had bought the necessary steel rails for 37 miles Of railroad from Naco to the Cananeas camp. Tbe grade is com paratively easy, said Mr. White. The Tombstone Prospector seems to have caught on to the idea that the S. P. intended to run a line from Co chibe station to Pearce, Turquois, Tombstone and Naco, there to connect with the Greene Consolidated Copper company's line. It does look that way, though Mr. White was noncommittal on tbat pojnt. The G. C. C. Co. will be a great feeder to such a line and it is a known fact that the other points have been for years, especially so Pearce and Tombstone. Tbe latter will be a big feeder following tbe reopen ing of tbe mines in tbe Tombstone dis trict. . Nsw Directors of the Southern Pacific. New Yokk, April 3.

Gage, the mining prince of Arizona, together with a number of mining magnates of the cast, spent Thursday in Pboenix and returned to the north last night. Mr. Gage was in Tombstone in early days when it was the boom camp of the world. Be has formed a strong combination of capital and will once more rehabilitate tbe oamp. Speaking of what will be done, Mr. Gage says, '"We hive purchased a vast amount of machinery, and will proceed to sink a new shaft with the hope that all the water stored in tbe other big mines may not flow in. If it does we can pump it out without cessa tion of work." When asked whether he thought the mines of Tombstone were worked out, Mr. Gage says: "Not by any means; few have been sunk far below the water level, and good ore was in tbe bottom when the camp closed down. Fnlly for ty per cent of the mineral id gold, much of it running five ounces to the ton; tbe rest U silver." " Work will begin soon and it will be prosecuted continuously and with vigor. "We are not doing this work in tbe in terest of philanthropy," said Mr. Gage, "but as a cold-blooded business trans action." Tbe mineral deposits at Tomb stone are among tbe richest in the world, and the supply seems to be in exhaustible. The Bryan Mines. From the Globe Silver Belt. , We learn from Mrs. Clara Kinney, principal owner of tbe Bryan copper mines, situated on tbe Gila river near Kelvin, that tbe U. S. patent to the chief mines of tbe group has been re ceived from Washington. Important development work on the property now nnder way is a tunnel to crosscut tb e several ledges. The tunnel, which starts from the river level, has been driven about 60 feet and is now in iron carrying gold, indicating that it will ion cut the first ledge. It is the in tention to continue this tunnel into the mountain 400 feet, which will give a depth oo tbe main ledge of some COO feet. The shipment of ore has been resumed. Because Judge A. S. Humphreys, of the Cnited States circuit court of Hono lulu (formerly of Floren je) , Indulged in a scathing rebuke to juror Schmidt, who refused to convict a prisoner in a criminal case, and excused him from further jury duty, Schmidt has brought suit against Judge Humphreys for large damages declaring that bis reputation as an honest man has been seriously injured by the actiou of tbe Judge.
