The purpose of tlio convention will bo to
ilovuo moans to reclaim tlm vnst uxtout of
now nrlil lands through the construction of
systems of Irrigation. Tult work Is so v. U

natural suggestion that It Btiotlld ho In seine

Tim proposition that has found most favor ,
Nays the Donvur Hun , Is that thu Kimeral
government grout to the several stnton and
territories the doiort nnd arid lands , to bn
utilized for the construction of thu Irrigation
system. This in the plan that will bo clilolly
discussed In the Suit Luke convention , and
llut-ly bo nix'cd upon congress for adoption.
There in little tiinu for delay in the mloo-
tton if some plan. Already tbo public lands
that nucd no Irrigation uro pretty well appro-
liriated. Settlement Is beglnnlm ; to crowd
upon the deserts and wastes that need only
u liter to uo transformed Into sardons. The
extent of them Is Honiolhlng enormous.
it Is estimated tnat In Utah alone there are
ovur llfteen thousand square miles of irri-
j-ablo land , of which less than one thousand
mo under ditch. If this territory lias bo-
roino what it is with so little of ciiltlvntablo
land , what can It bo made with more than
llfleen times us much I Utah Is traversed by
many streams streams that carry water
enough to Irrlpito nil her lands. Indeed ,
through the great Columbia and Colorado
rivers which drain the western slope cnouch
water llnws unused to thu son to convert all
the vast wastes of Unit section Into smiling
llultis , luxuriant orchards unu blooming gar
The level stretches of now arid lands are
( 'roator on the eastern than on the western
slope. All that vnst plain which stretches
cas'tward from llio Rocky mountains through
Now Mexico , Colorado , Wyoming and Mon
tana , and into Dakota , Ivnnsas and Nobrnska
conla bo inndu richly productive by irriga
tion. It is in torritorlal extent nn empire ) in
itself.Vhilo with the Missouri nnd the Kio
( irnndo and their tributaries the .supply of
water in the aggregate may bo as grent as on
the other side of the great rnuco , it is not so
udvantngoousry distributed. It cannot uo so largely available.
A largo portion of this great area must per
haps remain forever pastoral lands. But
through thu construction of systems of reser
voirs and canals n great portion of It can bo
reclaimed enough to support R population of
many millions.
' 1 ho call for the Utah convention should
receive prompt and cordial rosponsc from

be addressed. As it , originates with the
Salt Lake City chamber of comniorco. the

W. W. Howard , In Humor's Unzar : "Look

Huro of making my fortune here , all In

inino is worth a good million just as it
Htands "
"Why don't yon soil , and so put nn end to
this pork and beans and hot biscuit existence
of yours } " I suggested.
"IJorauso no ono would pay that prlco. in
the first place , and because , in the second
place , I shall takii moro than a million out of
it when I got it properly davclopud. This
developing is what coats. A friend of mine
hiis paid $10,000 for development work , and
ho hasn't reached the mineral yot. Ho
wouldn't soil fornnv innnoy. Ho would bo n
fool if ho did , for no is richt on top of the
Ktnff. Now here is whcro eastern people got
fooled. They suppose , when they buy stock
in n mine , thct they uro going to got their
money back in dividends without dolny.
They don't understand this unproductive
work , and so when the stock Is used up they
call the whole thing n .swindle and give it up.
All mining operations are not swindles , by n
long way , although they do not turn out well.
There are swindle.- every sort of business ,
nnd perhnm mining has liad its share. My
idea about Investing in mines is this : Don't
invest In anything , not even real estate ,
unless you can keep nn eye on it to see thnt
you got honest treatment. "
The mining regions of the west nro popu
lous with such men as this. Thu pluck nnd
pal ion t I'luluraiico which these men show are
utmost beyond belief. Many of thorn mnku

strange and grim fatality which takes the

the afternoon leaves only thu nshos of unat-

tbo inhospitnblo mountain jwaks have their
wolul stories of disappointment and despair
to tbosu who can read their inuto language1.
In them the hard worked miner has held his
dream of wealth and power and reunited

Irrigation In Cnlirornln.
The San Francisco Chronicle lias pub
lished an exhaustive summary of the prog
ress made in Irrigation enterprise lit Califor
nia , with particular rnforonco to the workings
of the Wright law. ( Tudor this law , adopted
four years UKO , owner * of land requiring Irri
gation from n common source nro authori/
to form irrigation districts , to which nre
given the powers of municipal corporations.
Those districts may condemn water-right
right of way , construct canals nnd reservoirs
nnd issue bonds to pay for tno same , the
bonds to have twenty years to run , to pay ( >
per cent interest .somi-nniinally , and they nro
to bo a first lion upon the lands In the dis
trict. The supreme court has ntllrmcd the
constitutionality of this law In four different
cases and there Is no longer doubt upon nny
point. Under the act thirty districts have
boon organized with nn rtroa of over two mil
lion ticros , $11,000,000 in bonds have boon
voted nnd about $1,000,01)0 ) of bonds have boon
sold or exchanged for water rights , and pur
chasers have boon found bore , in the east and
In Kurope. The average cost of nutting
wntor on luntls In districts alroadv organized
is a little over $3 nu acre. Without water
most of the land is worth no moro than 310or
$15 nn acre. With water Its value is in
creased at once from 101) ) to fiOO per cent.
Actual instances might bo quoted where
lands that were dry could not bo sold for
moro than SI or 1 an aero , vet us soon us
water was obtained they found eager pur
chasers at $100 and oven $1)00 ) an acre. From
those facts It Is argued that tno.bonds of irri
gation districts mtiko unsurpassed security ,
and letter.- * are published from such mon us
C. IJ. Iluntington and others , and interviews
are had with u largo number of men Und
bankers of San Francisco and the interior m
which the bonds nro highly endorsed. This
district system of California certainly solves
the problem of the reclamation of the arid
lands of the west without governmental
assistance other than in the passagoof neces
sary laws.
Ui'oliost Spot on Knrth
It Is a common remark among minors nnd
prospectors thnt "tho Dlnck Hills have not
boon scratched yet , " and the rojnark Is abso
lutely true , so far as it relates to development
mont of the wealth that lies hidden in the
bowels of the earth , says the Spearllsn Bui-
tin. When President Marvin Hughitt of the
Chicago & Northwestern railway , said at the
meeting of railroad presidents in Now York
n short time ago , "Tho 100 miles square com
prising the Black Hills is the richest spot of
equal area now known on the earth , " % ho
simply uttered a truth just now beginning to
bo known nnd understood. Every dny de
velopments are being made throughout the
length nnd breadth of that 100 miles square
which are a surprise to those who make the
discoveries , and daily add woignt and sig-
nllicanco to that remarkable statement , nnd
proves conclusively thatthough Mr. Hughitt
spoke really what tie believed , yet ho
"bulldod bettor than ho Know. " Ho did not
realize the vast possibilities of that wonder
ful region of wealth , When the development
of rich mineral ores , vast deposits of line
marble and the bust qualities of building
stone began to attract the attention of rail
road companies , it nt once becnmo n strife
among them as to which should lirst pene
trate the Hills , establish their lines and se
cure a linn foothoold. Two main lines of
road now traverse the Hills , and as develop
ments proceed others will surely come , until
this region , hitherto deemed inaccessible to
the tramp of the iron stood , will bogridjroncd
with bands of steel , and the , steady outpour
ing of wealth will exceed the fabled "King
Solomnn's mines , " so graphically described
by Uider Hnggard.

Many people wonder why sheop-rnlsinp ,
which on paper shows such excellent returns
does not in practice mnko these who pursue
thnt industry rich. Aftoi-Jn long experience I
can say thnt thu main cnusoof the unsatisfac
tory returns is that no animal thnt wnlks on
four logs is ns big a fool as the shonp. Wo
have to watch them every mlnnto , and if vig-
ilnnco Is relaxed for an instant the Hock is
likely to practically commit suicide. In
handling some animals KOIIIO degree of self-
help or intelligence can bo relied on to aid the
owner In saving their lives , but ahoop seem to
sot deliberately to work to kill themselves. If
caught In n storm on thu plains they will
drift before the wind unit diu of hunger and
cold rather than move 100 yards to windward
to obtain shelter in their corral. To drive
sheep against the wind is nosolutuly Impossi
ble. I once lost 1.000 slieup because I could
not drive them to n corral not ' 00 feet away.
In the corral they nre still moro foolish. If n
storm comes up they nil move "down wind"
until stopped by the fence. Then commences
the proceeding so much drendod by sheepmen
and known ns "pllng. " The sheep will climb
over each other's backs until they nro heaped
up ton foot high. Of course alt these at thu
bottom nro smothered. Not ono has sense
enough to seek shulter under the leu of the
fence as n horse or dog would do. Again , if
shcop gets into a quicKsnnd its fnto teaches
nothing to these that come immediately after ,
but the whole Hock will follow its leader to
destruction. No moro oxasper.Ulngly stupid
Jmito than a shcop walks.

The cold-bloodod murder of a railroad
brnkoman near the boundary of Wyoming
nnd Colorado has aroused n dangerous senti
ment among the pooplo. Numerous outnt a )
hiivo been perpetrated nt various points in
Wyoming along the railroads , but having
murder to their numerous petty crimes , these
freebooters are likely to bo rigorously dealt
with in the future. While it U doubtless
true that some unfortunates are forced by
dire necessity and the Impossibility of securing -
curing work to temporarily assume the role
of "tramp , " It Is nevertheless equally trim
that the vast majority of them are the most
utterly worthless and depraved class of hu

It seems to us. says thu Cheyenne Lender ,
that the railroads have n duty to perform In
this matter. ' Tramping is encouraged by the
facility of traveling. They experience little
trouble In "boatlijg their way" from plnco to

rules should bo adopted to prevent these
people from stealing rldtu nnd tbo rules

not nn easy ono but the railroads should at

_ Though wild game has boon decimated in

Still it is rare to sea even an nntolopj close
to the city , though now and then a smull
band of blaclt tail deer will conic down from
the hills to drink at the city springs , or a
stray elk may ba seen between hor2 and
Sheep mountain. On this account the sight ,
witnessed by Charles Boclc , who c.imu in
from North park , was an exceedingly intoi'-
esthig one.
When Just this side of Pinkhamptou , near
the Mountain Homo ranch , about thirly-llvo
miles from Larimlo , ho saw lour bull elk , ton

Montana Slicep.
If the careful estimate thnt 1R.O'J3,030
povtuls of wool wore shipped from Montana
last season , bo approximately correct , says
the Helena Journal , there are at least 2.00J-
000 head of sheep within its borders. Now
companies have imported no less than
000,000 this sprlifg , if our information l.s ac
curate , making a grand total that appeals to
the pride of every Montanian who loves bis
stato. Mr. Peclt , secretary of the Montana
Wool Urowers' association , says it is cur
rently reported that the llrst band of sheep
brought to the state was driven into the
Prickly Pear valley in ItitiT , nnd comprised
about live hundred head , all of which pnr-
isheJ vho following spring. The reports of
the state auuitors , while not compiled from
