"It ii apparent that something must be
"one to provide water for the Indian. Ia
order to demonstrate our ability to govern
new peoples we must show a better record
for those now in our care." Prof. F. H.
Newell, In a. lecture in Washington, Dee.
Whoever controls a stream practically
controls the hind it renders productive, and
the private ownership of water apart from
land cannot prevail without causing- endur
ing wrong. In arid states the only right to
water which should be recognized is that of
use. President Roocevelt ia bis message to
Undoubtedly the first work In irrigation
which the government should undertake la
t he construction of a dam on the Gila River
at San Carlos, in Arizona, because this lm
proveincnt would not only bring uuder cul
tivation a large area of arid land for the
use of white settlers, but would also relieve
the urgent needs of thousands of friendly
Indians, who are now in a starving condi
tion because the water upon which they
have been dependent for centuries has been
diverted by white settlers above them.
This improvement would be not only astrik
ing object lesson of the advantage of irriga
tion en a targe scale, but also an act of
me'cy and justice. Los Angeles Times
Editorial. Feb. 12. 1901.

Next Wednesday will be Christmas

Postmaster General Smith has re
signed from the cabinet and Henry C.
Payne, of Wisconsin, has be appointed.
Isaac Taft Stoddard has been ap
pointed secretary of the territory, the
charges against him being considered
The cry for statehood has been
swallowed np in the much more im
portant question of a national system
of irrigation for our arid lands.

Only six votes were cast in the
United States Senate against the ratifi
cation of the iiay-Pauncefote treaty.
There is now little doubt that a bill
providing for the construction of the
Nicaragua canal will be passed at the
present session of Congress.
Dewet's decision that Schley is the
real hero of Santiago will be accepted
by the American people. Dewey realizes
that Sampson had no more to do with
that affair at Santiago than be had at
that other one at Manila, in which the
gallant little Admiral himself figured
Engineers are now at work between
Tempe and Mesa setting permanent
grade stakes on the new Phoenix,
Florence and Benson railroad. Work
of construction will commence shortly
after the first of the year. This rail
road will open up the finest body of
mining and agricultural land in the
As a result of the construction of the
San Carlo dam, Florence will become
the mot important city in the terri
tory. Conservative estimates place the
population of this valley at not less
than 40,000 within twelve months after
the completion of the reservoir. The
recent action of the Secretary of the
Interior in withdrawing; from entry all
the vacant agricultural lands in this
valley would indicate that department
officials consider the building of the
dam by the government as assured.
Now is the time to get in on the ground
President Eooskvelt has endeared
himself to the people of the west by
his manly position on the national irri
gation question. Never before has this
country had a more broad-minded or
progressive executive, and the West
will stand by him almost to a man.
This is a good deal for a silver republi
can paperto admit, but when politics
gets dowa to a matter of dollars and
cents, ss in the last two general elec
tions, it is just as well to admit the
fact. The West wants some of that
prosperity that has been so much
talked about, and nothing will bring
it to a greater degree than water stor
age fur our arid lands.
Thk El Paso Times takes the fol
lowing sensible view of statehood for
the territories: "The reason why the
President did cot recommend statehood
for the territories is pretty evident.
The jealousies and enmities that were
aroused by territorial governors who
acted as if they were kings in their
realm, has so divided the Bebnblican
party in the territories that the Re
publican congressman believes Demo
crats would win in the case of each of
the three applicants for statehood, so
politics again clouds the prospect for
new states. VV hen such a partisan as
Senator Eikins declares that he cannot
favor admission of New Mexico while
the territorial party is split, it would
have been useless for the President to
recommend statehood. Doubtless it is
the intention of Roosevelt., if possible,
to brush aside nnfit men in the terri
tories and put in office those who will
not build up personal bulwarks, and
divide the party in doing so. Then
with a new regime and harmony state
hood may come."
The desert country of Arizona offers
wonderful inducements this winter to
the prospector, says the Mohave Miner.
Along the Colorado river there are
mountain ranges that are impossible
to get into in the summertime and all
tnese mountains are ribbed wiiti ore
bearing veins of gold, silver and cop
per. The Bprings that usually go dry
in the summer will for several mouths
to come furnish water for camp use.
and enable the prospector to penetrate
the heart of the mountain in search of
the precious and base metals. Out in
the desert the small battes are often
found to be ore bearing and these can
also be prospected with safety.. The
winter mootbs are mild, no storms in
terfering with the work of the search
er after wealth.
The Troy and Manhatton Mines.
From the Globe Silver Belt.
C. H.- Cutting, general manager of
the Troy Copper company and super
intendent of the Manhatton Copper
company, at Troy, was a visitor to
Globe during the past week Mr. Cut
ting informed us that work is being
continued, with a force of abont 100
men on both properties, with the re
mit of favorable ore indications in
most of the openings, and ore bodies
opened in the Copper Queen mine on
the Manhatton, and the Alice mine on
An order lias been placed by th
Troy company for two 40-horse-power
boilers, a steam hoist to replace the
gasoline hoist (which will be trao
ferredtothe Sisson shaft on the Man
hatton,) a compressor and machine
drills, together with a pumping plant
The Manhatton company has also
placed an order for a 40-horse-power
boiler, a compressor and machine drills.
to be placed at the Sisson shaft.
The erection of a smelter will be
considered early in the coming year,
Surface improvements in the shape
of roads, to be afterwards utilized for
tramroads, connecting the east end of
the Manhatton property and the west
end of the Troy property with the
proposed smelter site, are being car
ried forward as fast as possible.
Mr. Culling nan used excellent judg
ment in developing the Troy and Man
hatton properties, and he has been
ably assisted by Thos. Kavanaugh
foreman. The work has been marked
by system and thoroughness and not
a dollar has been expended in needless
improvements, and machinery has
been added only as the progress of de
velopment justified and made it neces
Troy has been for some time past an
eight hour camp, $3 being the wages
paid, and Mr. Cutting is well satisfied
with the experiment, finding that the
men do as much and as good work in
an eijjht hour shift as they formerly
did in ten hours.
A question that is receiving consid
eration by the two companies operat
ing at Troy U rail tranportatlon, and
they are now awaiting the decision of
the Phoenix and Eastern company,
which is expected to begin the con
struction of a railroad from Phoenix
to Benson, through Florence and up
the San Pedro river. If that line is
built the Troy and Manhatton com
panies will construct a short line from
Troy to connect with it ; if not, they
will build a railroad themselves
through Florence to a connection with
the Southern Pacific at Casa Grande.
