The Trrigtr.ioii Age pries the following o i the statehood question: If the nev year shall bring state hood to the territories it will be a happy new year to them. And -itatehool -houLl be given in p-e --ebely the same spirit tli it an entee meroh mt displays his latest and eliticeat ware-, in his best sh ip window. It is high time that Un cle Sun went to his storehouse, un loosed the tii-ritorial wrappings from Arizona, New Mexico and Utah, and put their m uvelous at tractions on exhibition wlieie t.h • in 1 1 ion* of people and the millions of d »bars looking for homes und investments could see them. A mistaken uotim exisis in the east ern brain on the subject of what constitutes fitness for statehood. The popular id a is that a certain number of people is tho single re q lireinent. On that theory Dola ware, Rhode Island, Vermont and some tier insLniticaat eastern states should be reduce I to territo ries, whib New Yerk, Pennsylva nia and Illinois should be pactioued 0.l into several new stttcs. Did anybody ever inquire how many people were in Massachusetts when stateh »od was conferred upon her? The matter of populatieu is con sidered only with r« 1 tion to west ern territories. ?n any true esti mate of fitness fetor sovereignty actual population wond be the last consideration, and capacity for development the first. The terri tories present a wonderful field for enterprise. Ti»<y are capable of supporting vast numbers of peou'e and adding enorm >udy to tho na tioual wealth. Tue terrisonal form of government is the eff etive bar to the att ii i ame of iU.i Jvery con ditiou which the eastern . man pre scribes as tha one essential to state hood. Is it fair to tie a man’s leg and then tell him he must heat the record as a sprinter? Is it fair to impose up m Arizona, Ne v Mexico ai.d Utah the political conditions which prohibit the rapid expansion of popul itioti and tell them they must have a certain number of in habitants before asking for state hood ! It is alik ? a matter of business ai d of justice to admit the territories to the circle of sovereign states wi bout delay. A half starved newspiper is just one point b itter than none at all. Every business in in in Gillup should give the Gleaner a little sup port, no inaft-ir how small; it all helps. vKiep the pipmr on its pins and i s publisher in tun will strain ev.-ry print to give the people of the coil city just as good a weekly paper as any publislie l in the -ter ritory. A half starved horse can not do as ranch work as a well-fed aiimil. 12 liters aid publish ;rs mty be able to pull tlirough on fzee lunches and wind-pud Jin.?, but -V pau.r dealers, real estate owners and printer*require B^nv j ihing more subst nitial.—Gillup Gleanor. t Arizona is forging to the front most rapidly in the cattle feeding industry Alfilfa fed cattle from th it territory are supplying the California markets, and of c #urso n- fctiug their owners go id profits. Th** absimlity of the idea that cat tle would not pay to fatten in the > west and ship to the seaboard has b<*«n most thoroughly shown within the pist few year*, and there is no 1 doubt but that feeding is what will bring both the cattle and sheep business out of the kiuk in the f * sop ill west. —Stockman. I The Irrigation Age says: “The people of the arid states and terri tories will be expected, during tlie next few months, t.o formulate the irrigation policies under which their hopes of the future may bn realized. There can be no enduring and stately structure unless there is first provided a broal, substantial foundation. This foundation must include (1) an honest and workable j national law for handling the arid public lands and interstate and in terstate nnc; international streams, and (2) a code of state laws recog nizing certain common principles relating to water appropriation and to supervision of ditch construction and management, as well as to sys tems of public administration. We are now' approaching the vital stage of our formative period. We are just where the fathers were when they went into a five months’ ses sion to buil I the constitution. They had deelur> d independence und won r,he object of the revolution, but it %till remained to formulate mto en during law the fundamental ideas upon which their new political aud iucustrial systems should rest. Western men have declared their faith in the new industrial philoso phy, they have established irriga tion plants and developed commu nities after a more than seven years’ war with prejudice, skepticism and numerous physical obstacles. And now the time his come to erect a system of permanent laws upon the broad principles of justice and equi ty officially uttered by the interna tional congress at Los Angeles. At the Bo wie end of the pro jected railroad which is to connect that point with Globe, active ope rations have commenced. The Solotnonvillo Bulletin says that an engineer corps is now at Bowie sur veying and staking off sidefcraeks for the yard and laying off work for the graders. Several carloads of lumber arrived at Bowie Tues d>y and men are now at work erecting a warehouse and office to be used during the construction period. Mr. Garland’s railroad outfit has been shipped to Bowie from Ogdea Utah and on its arri val a force of thirty teams will begin grading. It is the present intention to complete the grado to Solomonville by April first ami have the track laid ti at far by May first. It is rumored ori good authority that the Southern Pacific will adopt the check system of paying em ployees which has been in vogue on the Santa Fe for a long time. By this system the men instead of re ceiving cold cash from the pay-car will be given checks on New York which they must find a wsy of cashing at a bank or grocery store. This move will be taken with a view of reducing the possible dan gers of robbery to a minimum. Train robbers would have little use for a lot of checks made out »n the name of railroad employee*. The payment by check will not inter fere with the running of the pay trnius, but instead of cash the trains will carry only checks.

A story of Arizona, well told, is in the January mni'eroi' the Onfsniopolitan. It is by Richard Htfnry Savage, i?i Arizona as an arinv engineer about 1870. Graphi cally he he has portrayed early Arizona: “Arizona w;n then a strange sad land of blood and gold.gi eat parched | deserts, with uray sands sifted I deep over the ruins of the beautiful work of til-* old Aztecs; gloomy gorges, fanged with ledges"of rock* whose shadows hid the red devil*, i rolling arid mesa, where the coyotes roamed at will,and tall cicti pointed from a hell on earth to a heaven above! Treeless, waterless, liarren, and wfth a strange suggest! Venes* o of a lost land, a laud of abandoned !!: hopes mid forgotten histories.•. •>*■; • Heavy spind ridges hid b-yo«d their summits fathomless mysteries of danger and dark adventure. “On the heights At night, baleful glitte'rmg>lndian fires told us of the movements of our troop*; 0.. Thornbush and roesqtlile grove* . hid the mean,stunted, Shock-headed.; wretches, whose name is the syno* ( i nym for craft, tlnrst, of blood and devlish ingenuity. For many weary miles we skirmished over the old battle ground, where for two hund red years tke Apache had fousrht the mail-clad Spaniard, the daring Mexican, and had butchered in sad succession, peaceful Jesuit fathers, the weary emigrant and the lonely scout or mail carrier ” legend of Jtatb Tilley The Indian legend regarding the origin of Death Valley is an inter esting one. From the ou f er edge of this vast furnace —it is 300 miles square and 160 feet below sea level— on* may see far of!*, tremulous thrdugh the shimmer ing waves of heat, a sort of butte that has the form of a ru ined castle. The story go-s that in the old days, before the Amar gosa river ceased to water the val ley, the place was the seat of a powerful city ruled by a princess as beautiful as Cleopatra and as im perious as Elizabeth. An embas sador to the reigning Aztec monarch* described to her on his return the glories of the king’s palace in the City of Mexico. Resolving to equal the magnify cence of her neighbor, she began the erection of a vast buildings Ali i the laborers and artisans of the city were employed and the work t wa»> pushed night and day, for within twelve months the Aztec ruler was to be her guest, and she wished to welcome him to a palace as spied— did as his own. She exhausted the resources of her realm; men went mad with toil and hunger and at last the high priest protested. BLe wa9 ordered to execution, and dy-* ing, cursed the city for the prin-* cess’ sake. That night the earth shook and sank, the river dried up and the morning sun poured down a flood of heat. All perished, and now the ruined walls of the palao# aloue remain. Th* Amargosa, by the way, is a roost erratic stream. It flows south ninety miles from it* fountainhead in the western Sierras vanishes at Resting .Spring, mwnt tain, is in evidence again for fifty miles, disappears for a spaos, then i hobs up and rans along turbulent i ly tor 100 miles.
