At Troy last Monday Robert Hat field was shot and fatally wounded by Deputy Sheriff John C. Deviiie while resisting arrest. A warrant hd been sworn out by Mrs. Hatfield, who charged her husband with be.iting her. H was while attempting to serve this warrant that death came to the accused. Hatfield was represented to be a member of the famous Hatfield family of Kentucky, a feudist and a bad man generally. He had boasted that no officer could arrest him, and Deputy Devina was duly warned. He accordingly armed himself with a Winchester and took with him a com panion when he went to serve the war rant. Hatfield was ordered to throw up his hands, but instead of doing so he reached for his hip pocket, when Deviue fired, shooting him iu the" breast, from the effects of which ha died the following day. The body was taken to Globe for burial, and a coroner's jury fully exonerated the officer. At the time of his death Hat field was working for the Troy and Man hatton company as a miner.

At least a step toward the goal of national irrigation is expected from the present congress. Never have the advocates of government reclamation of arid western lands been so favorably situated as they are to-day. Presi dent Roosevelt's declaration in favor of reservoirs and canals to be con structed from the public treasury has given the movement an impetus which should carry it a considerable part of the journey. Unfortunately there are in congress many men whose geo graphical research is limited to that portion of the country east of the Missouri river. What i even more unfortunate, some of the western cou gressmen, notably those from the Pacific coast states, are taking o little interest in the subject that their influ ence is almost against it. This was true in the last congress, when the ehairmen of both house and senate committees on arid lands were Oregon men, whose every effort to secure na tional legislation on the question was most perfunctory. TUey were encouraged in their atti tude by lack of presidential support and by united opposition on the part of easterners, men who were willing to vote millions to dredge yard-wide creeks in their own slate, but not a cent to tbe borne builders of the west. Many of these men will continue their opposition, and the fight which tbe irrigationists have on their hands is by do means an easy one. This year all westerners are alert, and they will lose o opportunity of pressing their demands. Wasiiingtoh, Djc. 21. The western members of the Senate and House have agreed upon an irrigation bill that is to receive the solid support of the West during the present session of Congress. A plan of action was adopted yester day in the committee room of Senator Warren of Wyoming, when the mem bers from seventeen States and Terri tories west of the Mississippi voted to take up what isknown as the ale-of-pubtic-lands scheme to help out irri gation. A bill will now be introduced in each branch of Congress creating a fund, tbe proceeds of the disposal of public lands in tbe seventeen States and Terri tories affected. This will amount an nually to between $2,000,COO and $3,000,000. It is proposed to parmit the Secre tary of the Interior to expend the money as he sees fit in carrying out such projects as may be agreed upon later forirrigating aridsections. When the reclamation of a piece of territory has been accomplished, it is to be thrown open to homestead entry in small tracts, and before title is,ae tua'ly given a man must have lived on the ground and cultivated it. He will then be required to pay in installments what it cost to procure water for the land. These payments are to be con verted back into the fund and used again in developing other sections, so tbalitwill continually grow. The plan will not require an initial appropriation from Congress to start the work, and it is thought that it will therefore appeal to many who other wise might be inclined to object to it. According to the present scheme, the Secretary of the Interior is to deter mine tbe manner in which the money In view of the active work that has been carried on for many years past by the Geological Survey, which is under the immediate control of the Secretary of the Interior, there need be no doubt about the plan that the Secretary may adopt. A number of irrigation pro jects have been planned by the survey already, being based on careful surveys and estimates of cost. Seven distinct projects are now complete and await ing money to be carried into effect They call for the expenditure of be tween f 4,000,000 and $5,000,000, and pro pose to reclaim something like 500,000 acres of land that is at present prac tically valueless. The scheme of survey is to build large reservoirs on certain western rivers that are so located that the vs a tet caji.bfi.iedJQ.a wi d e st re teb. of About a year ago my hair was coming out very fast, so I bought a bottle of Ayer's Hair Vigor.

This remedy ia sold by Brockway's Pharmacy. A. V. Baehr, a gardener on Mineral Creek, committed suicide last week under distressing circa m stances. He was placing a roll of blankets in a wagon when a pistol fell out of the bundle, striking the ground and dis charging, the ball breaking the bones in the leg. Uis partner, George Phen ning, went for assistance and when he returned he found that the wounded . man had shot himself through the head. Baehr left a note, making, dis position of his property, and stating that he preferred death to being crippled. He left a married daughter in Globe and a single daughter who was with him. Oil drillers at Engle, New Mexico, at a depth of 200 feet struck a strong flow of artesian water. Eagle is sit uated on one of the worst deserts in that territory and the water will prove more valuable than oil. Thay are telling a stcry, which may er may not be true, cbout a rising young politician who has unusually large feet. His mother is a lovable old woman and quite deaf. She lives in a flat in the neighborhood of Grant's tomb, in .New York, and is always de lighted by a visit from her son. When the United States cruiser Brooklyn, which was anchored in the Hudson, oflt the tomb, on Memorial day, fired a salute of 21 guns the old lady was ob served to start, fix her cap and smooth down her apron. Then she said, with a sweet smile: "George is coming; I hear his footsteps on the stairs." Chi cago Chronicle. territory that is now barren, because of lack of water. The first of these pro jects, and probably the most important one, provides for a big reservoir at San Carlos on the Gila River, in Southern Arizona. This will cost a trifle over $1,000,000 and will provide water for 100,000 acres of land. Another pro ject calls for the establishment of res ervoirs on the (Carson and Truckee rivers, lying In California, to irrigate lands in Nevada. This will cost about $000,000, and will furnish water for about 100,000 acres. Four other projects, are as follows : Reservoirs for Kings Rivr in Califor nia, to cost $1,000,000, toswrc water for about 50,000 acres; reservoirs for Hum bolt River, in Nevada, to cost $120,000, and to provide water for 20,000 acres; reservoirs on Salt river, in Arizona; reservoirs on tbe Hetch-Uetchy, in California, to cost $600,000, and to irri gate 107,000 acres. The western representatives are very earnest in the matter. To many of them it is a question of vital importance. Tbe conditions in Nevada are true to a certain extent in all of the other seven teen States and Territories. There has been a decline of 20,000 in the population of Nevada during thelat l twenty years. When the bottom dropped out in mining in that State the population deserted, agriculture hav ing been neglected because of the lack of suitable soil.
