Washington, Bee. 28. On tho great
desert of Colorado, In southeastern
California, a marvelous work of rec
lamation is In progress. Ultimately
half a million acres of fertile but ut
terly arid sou will bo converted into
tho most productive agricultural land
in the world. !
The present tendency In this dis-'
trlct Is toward n largo farm unit 320 '
or G40 acres, since this portion of tho '
public domain Is passing Into private 1
ownership chiefly by means dr the
desert land law. Under this law, a
singlo individual may take 320 acres
or a man and his wife twice as much,
which is a full square mile. i
Is so much land reasonably neces
sary for a prosperous homo on rich

lumgs grow every month n the year
and where that wonderful forage
crop, alfalfa, may be harvested eight
times In 12 monthB?
Thero are some good business men
in tho United States who answer this
question in tho negative, and who
oven go so far as to say it is unfor
tunate for a settler of small means
to try to subdue that amount of des
ert soil.
One of these men is a Chicago
manufacturer who is deeply Interest
ed in tho colonization problem.
Ho declares that 20 acres are quite
sufficient for a good home in that
locality. He Insists that alfalfa and
cows are the surest money makers
for tho settler of small means. Each
aero of alfalfa will support one cow.
One good man will take care of 20
cows. Hence, the 20-acre farm Is the

both in Its economic and Its socio- j
logical aspects. '
It will be interesting to compare i
the prosperity of these small farm
ers with that of their neighbors who
aro trying to till from in to 30 times
as much land, and it will be Interest
ing again to see how these settlers
aro able to succeed with borrowed
capital to be repaid by devoting a
part of their time to the cultivation
of olher land. Perhaps the experi
ment will furnish a good deal of
light for the problem of making
homes for poor men In tho desert.
Tho Chicago capitalist makes no
pretense to philanthropy. It Is pure
ly a business proposition with him.
He thinks the enterprise offers good
security and promises to return a
leasonnhlo pi out.
But. In the meantime, the nation is
squandering Its land by permitting it
to bo taken up in big blocks by those
who will later sel out to actual
home makers or to syndicates which
aro making great stock ranchos.
And so It will be until the present
land laws aro repealed in favor of a
true homestead provision. It Hi

Spanish Republicans Demand Radical
Change In Government.
In Spain the property of tho rclisl.
ous orders is not taxed, and, as many
of these communities carry on busi
ness In competition with others, this
immunity from taxation gives them a
great advantage.
This is one of the leasons why tho
Republicans of Spain demand that tho
religious communities shall bo pro
hibited from competing Tn the Indus
tries, agricultural and mocnamcal,
with ordinary citizens; that all church
property not used for purposes of
worship or charity be taxed; that all
titles to property other than that
used for religious and charitable pur
poses now lying In the hands of
agents or trustees of religious com
munities be transferred tn the gov
ernment; that clergymen be prohibit
ed from holding public office, educa
tional, charitable or otherwise; that
religious processions which excito tile
fanaticism of the masses be prohibit
ed rrom ,passlng through the streets,
that tho compulsory education law,
already on the statute books as a
dead letter, be enforced with a freo
school system, with secular teach
ers, and that the money now appro
priated for the benefit of the church
be npplled for educational purposes.
It Is a very broad and radical pro
gram for a country like Spain, which
hnB always been more or less con
trolled by the priests, but it is based
upon economical as well as political
Glass Workers Get More Pay.
The joint conference of plate glass
manufacturers and skilled workers,
held at Philadelphia, resulted in the
adoption of a uniform wage scale
whereby nearly 10,000 workers will
receive an advance in wages of from
1 to 'IVi per cent. To meet this .n
oi ease the price of glass will prob
ably be advanced lfc to 20 per cent.
There are nearly 4,0u0 pots In the
United States, employing 2,000 expert
blowers. The others who will benefit
by tho Increase ate the gatherers,
liattenert) nnd cutters. Under the new
hcalo the wages for blowers will av
erage $180a month for single strength
glass and $100 a month for double
thick plate.
To Drive Out Chinamen.
Chicago has in the neighborhood of
425 Chinese laundries, bomo of them
employing a score or more of work
ers. They are really making an Im
pression on the laundry business of
the city, and for this reason the laun
dry wagon dilvers, laundry owners
and laundry workers propose to begin
an agitation to drive all the China
men out of the business. Tho work
ers In the Chinese laundries have no
regular hours, but practically work
continuously. They work three or
four hours, take a bite and a nap, and
then begin again. Against this sys
