"Il li apparent thoj s,oniothinr roust be done to provide water for the Indians. In prder to demonstrate our ability to govern new people we must show a better record tor those now in our care." Prof. F. H. Newell, in a lecture in Washington, Deo. IW.ISOT. I'ltDorBTKDLY he first work in irrigation which the government should undertake is .the construction of a dam on the Uila River at Sao Carles, in Arizona, because this im provement would not only bring under cul tivation a large area of arid land for the jue of white settlers, but would also relievo the urgent needs of thousands of friendly Radians, who are now in a starving condi tion because the water upon which they t have beou dependent for centuries has been diverted by white settlers above thorn. This improvement would be not only a strlk- jng object lesson of the advantage of irriga tion en a large scale, but also an act of mercy and Justice. Los Angoles Times The road, afi described id the declara EdltoriaLFeb. 12, 1901. I Thb telegram from Phoenix regard ing' the proposed Arizona Centrai rail road from Benson to Phoenix by the way of Florence confirms a proposition which the Tridcse has known to have been under way for some time. The railroad is a certainty ; it will he built ppeedily, and will develop the preat mining and agricultural resources of our county as no other road can. This is the best new that our people have had for some time. tYhy not agree on a policy and work for government funds for the construction of the San Carlos dam? United effort would secure this boon and the example uud bene fits would he of incalculable value. iPhoe nix Republican. Indeed, why not? The Phoenix news- paper have heretofore insisted th.it there was an entire agreement on the subject, but the opposition of John 13. wui iiBasuu auvtuci uiuiiiiiu cuug rtos j man hai been traced direc'.ly back to 1 Salt river, where a small souled in dividual who hasn't an idea above a tooth-filling is accredited with having pnlled the tUicgi. Any Arizona man . who would "knock" such an enter prise as the San Carlos dam ought to be smoked out. Ik an item in these columns referring to fhe first Mayor of Tombstone, a misappre hension was had as to t be correctness of the Sroe. The honor of being the iirwt Mayor of Tombstone belongs to Wm. A. Harwood, who is still a resident of Tombstone. Pros pector. You are mistaken, William. The first Mayor of Tombstone was Alder Randall, and a more unconscionable scamp never lived in any community. Instead of giving title to lots to the in habitants of the town, as required by the Federal law, Raudall, as trustee, deeded them to Towosite Clark, and endless litigation ensued. It required the Supreme Court of the United States to upset the rascality of Clark and bis - tool Randall. This is history as she ia writ by one who was thar. The United States treasury is collect ing two million and a half dollars every twenty-fourhours. If Uncle Sam, who is "rich enough to buy us all a farm," would devote about half a day's revenues to the building of the ban Carlo dam be would display a business foresight with which the old gentle man has not been credited of late, al though tbii is a basinets administra tion. The Indiana on the Sacaton res ervation are again on the verge of starvation on account of failure of their crops. It cost the government $33,000 last year to feed them, and the appropriation is exhausted, 80 Agent El wood Lad ley informs us. He fur thermore informed ns that he woild make application for $100,009 for the same purpose this year. Three per cent interest on $1,033,923 (which is the estimated cost of the dam made by the engineers of the U. S. Geological Survey) would be but $31,167. When it Is understood that the Indians are anxious to secure the water in order tbat tbey may become again self-supporting, and look with horror on the idea of being classed as pauperized ration Indians after many generations pf independence, it will readily be seen tbat your Uncle Samuel is not the business man he pretends to be. Over forty thousand ''home-seekers," the New York Post estimates, have (taring the past spring gone into Washington from oher States. Twelve "home-seekers' excursions,' ' eond u :led by the two northern transcontinental railways, bav.e probably accounted for most of these. Such immigration would be the order over the entire west if the Government should favor ably consider the building of storage reservoirs and the providing of water where farmers and settlers could take H out upon the land they desire to GLORIOUS NEWS) Florence Soon to Have a RailroacJ.

During the prog ress of the trial o the case of Wm. E. Anderson versus Robert Anderson, Monday forenoon, the defendant Rob ert Anderson, who had beeome great ly wrought up over the testimony in troduced uud the allegations made by the plaintiff's attorneys, was stricken with apoplexy. Court was suspended and Mr. Anderson was removed to the lodging house of Mrs. DeCloss, where physicians attended him, hut their ef forts to counteract the disease were unavailing and death intervened in about six hours after the first stroke. The circumstances attending the fa tal event were deplorable, as the plaio- Ult in the suit is the son of the de ceased defendant, nnd uaturallv con siderable feeling and comment was oc casioned, Robert Anderson, the deceased, was a well known citizen of lilpbe, having resided here since 1S32. lie was born in the north of Ireland .63 years ago, and when but 15 years of aje emigra ted to Canada, going thence to Nevada some years later.

ST . Impsrtant Business Change. From the Tucson Star.! Reports have been current some days to the effect that the Norton Drake Co. have ReCiired a contract with the southern Paeificj railway company for furnishing men and supplies from Los Angeles to El Paso. The truth of the report has reached the city and the coutract will be in effect August first Foranumberof years prior to July j hrst, 1900, the Norton UraKe Co. car ! ried on the business with offices at Los Angeles, Tucson and El Paso, Mr. Norton making headquarters in Los Angeles, Mr. Drake beiug at borne in Tucson. July first, 1003, the L. H. Manning Co. began operations under a contract entered into with the Southern Pacific for a year, no doubt with e.pectation of extension. The information receiv ed would indicate that the extension has not been made. Along the Southern Pacific, and es pecially so at Tucson, this interest is regarded as a very important one. The ! effort to secure the contract is an evi- ! deuce of the fact, and the widespread j circulation of the report of a change and the interest taken therein confirmation of this fact. Messrs. Norton and Drake are in Los An-eles but are expected to be here shortly as also in El Pas j to ar range, details respecting renewal of j operations. Trans-Mississipoi Congress. From the National Irrigation tlaazine.1 The Trans Mississippi Commercial Congress will m-et at Cripple Creek, Colorado, July 16 to 20, inclusive. This meeting will be the twelfih session of the Congress and it will be one of the most important gatherings in the West. As its name implies, the territory with in the jurisdiction of the Congress em braces that region across the great Mississippi river, including the whole of the arid and semi-arid States aud Territories.' The entire Trans-Mississippi territory has a population of up wards' of 23,003,000 people. Some of the important themes for discussion will be, modern agriculture, irrigation development, forest preservation, good roads, live stock raising, mining, trade with the Orient, and other topics of live interest to Western America. ' A large and representative gathering is anticipated. It was definitely decided Wednesday eveoiog that the Bisbee base ball club would go to Globj to cross bats with that team on the Fourth of July, An other telegram was received during the afternoon stating that the Globe team would pay the expenses of the team there in case they lost and give them the purse of $350 if they win, which the club expects to do. The purse has been raised $10.0. since the first offer and the local boys, are now anxious to try for it. The liue-np of the team has not as yet been definitely decided upon, but when . tl.e Globe nine comes up agaipst them, they will find it one of the best that southern Arizona has ever put up.

From the San Francisco Examiner. 1 Here is a quotation from the Gazette of Emporia, Kan : The good times will go as quickly as they came. If you have a job, make youtself in dispensable, for iu a day that is coming you will find there will bo a general reduction of men. Conduct yourself now iu such a manner that when a smaller force is de manded the old man will conclude h? can't get along without you. That seems perfectly reasonable to the ordinary American eitUen, doesn't it? It seems perfectly reasonable to try by every means in your power not to help yourself and all your fellows, but- to look outconstautly and exclusively for the feathering of your own nest. Hard times are earning, therefore "make yourself indispensable" to your employer. In other words, if you ara voting-, work as hard as yon can, do more than your share, so that when the hard times come the older and feebler man, less able than you to battle with the world, will be turned adrift, while you keep your pay and full stomach. '"Conduct yonrse'f in such a manner tnat the old man will coneludehecan' get along without you." In other words, show toadyism through cajolery, servility, overwork, or in some other fashion. Think only of yourself, and don't care what hap' pens when hard times come, as long as the "old mau" concludes that he caj't get along without you. Such is the advice given to all young men all over the country. We should like to change the advice, and have it read this way : I Good times will end. Wnile they j last, aud whether they iubt or not, it is j the duty of you workiugmen to onran j ize aud stick together. Conduct your selves in such fashlou as will get good wages for you now, and, by increasiug the power of consumption, pnt off the i day of over-production aud of general discharge. Conduct yourselves aod vote ia such a fashion a to m ike 3'ou rselves rulers of circumstances a td of your own des tiny. Study and think, and unite closely. Learn to depeud on yourselves, and not on individual toadyism to "the old man." For a million years , without a sec ond's intermission, this country can supply rqore than enough for all of its iuliabilaa'.s. Use your braius to organ ize supply and distribution. Fight together for the general good ; don't struggle separately like 'timid slieep to save your owu fleeee, uud ,then get shorn one at a time. Be men. Unite, get control of in dustry, and yon will learn what the real possibilities of life are in a country where it is not "the old man" who rules, or the toady only who holds his job.

The El Paso Herald says: Phelps- Dodge and company will soon stop work on the Nacosari branch of the road. The Nacosari branch has now reached the canyon where the rainy season will interfere materially with the wqrk and will abandon that vrorlt for awhile. It is said that all possible effort ia now being made to cross the swamps with the road before the rain comes, and when this is done the men and teams will be brought to New Mexico. Before reaching Xacos.iri the road has to run through a long canyon which is half full of water during tli2 rainy season and the work will have to s'-od when the rain begins. Whether the forces will be brought to El Paso or not, is not yet known. The Peopie Chasr Jj 335 rju.tipnrey?. From the Honolulu Bulletin.) Something not on the program oc eured last night at tle Orpheum, which showed conclusively what the general public thinks of the Advertiser's policy relative to the late troubles between the Circuit bench and the Bar. The second aet had just been finished and the class who always have to "see a man" between acts had made their departure, when Judge Humphreys en- tered the theater and walked across the room to where a friend was sitting. A roar of applause and vociferous hand (-.lartninn' from tlm (rallerv to the or chestra greeted the judge's appearance, and this continued for some time af ler he had u;en his seat. The spootane- "us character 01 this reception left no i question in the minds of those present as to the public sentiment favorable to Judge Humphreys. M. W. W'ambattgh, chief engineer of the South Western of Arizona, was in i Bisbee this week, having come from ! El Paso, where he had been in the in- 1 terests of his road. He confirmed the report that, the El i aso city council had at last granted his company the right-of-way that they desired, aod that work would be commenced at once out of that city.
