' Articles of incorporation have been filed at Phoenix for Hhe Arizona Land and Irrigation Company, with a capital stock of $5,000,000 ; paid up, $1,500,000. The company proposes to construct an immense dam at a place known as Pas tens Butte on the Gila river and, con struct 240 miles of canal. The great Alta irrigation district sys tem of canals under the Wright law has been completed, and is running full of water, practically irrigating 130,000 acres of land in the Traver district. This re sult has been brought about by residents of the district purchasing bonds them selves . ' Every report says that such an acreage of wheat and barley as is now in the ground has never before been planted in Southern California. Thousands of acres in San Bernardino county that have never produced anything but sagebrush have been planted to barley because of the big market there has been for that grain this season. Marcus Pollasky's surveyors have started by the Mad River route to ex amine the country between Eureka and Red Bluff, Cal., for the proposed rail road construction. There is a division of opinion at Eureka as to the earnest ness of Pollasky and his backers in this move, and the general disposition is to id the undertaking and give it a trial.

PERSONAL MENTION. King Humbert of Italy to Visit Eng- land Paderewski the Recipient of a Silver Wreath. Ignatius Donnelly has ciphered out a new theory about the grip. He thinks it is caused by star dust through which the earth passes. President Harrison gets up his State papers in a legal and red-tape style, just as if he was preparing briefs. They are neat, compact and concise. General Gourka, Governor-General of Russian Poland, is a hale and vigorous soldier of 64 years, and he is not going to resign his place as has been reported. The Czar knows his value too well. Rev. J. O. Schwerin, a Congregational ist minister, who died last week at Eau Claire. Wis., was a noted hunter, and was for many years generally considered the best rifle shot in the Northwest. The birthday anniversary of the Em peror of Russia, who is 47 years of age, is also the wedding anniversary of the Prince of Wales, who has now been the husband of the charming Princess Alex andria for twenty-nine years.' : King Humbert's approaching visit to England is said to be due to the grati tude he feels when he recalls that Queen Victoria was the first of the European sovereigns to recognize the young king dom of Italy thirty or more years ago. The only survivor of the brave band of Texan patriots who signed the Decla ration of Texas Independence at Wash ington on the Brazos river March 2, 1836, is W. C. Crawford, who now at the age of 86 is living in destitution at Alvaredo. Simon Newcomb,-senior professor of mathematics in the United States Naval Academy and professor of mathematics and astronomy at Johns Hopkins Uni versity, has just received his diploma of election as an honorary member of the Loyal Institute of London. , : Paderewski has been presented by his Boston admirers with a beautiful wreath of laurel in silver. They were consider ate enough not to insist that he should wear it as the Roman conquerors wore theirs. They did not want to disarrange his hair;. Some of the wisest scholars delight in the collection of pamphlets. Indeed there are pamphlets which attracted lit-, tie notice at the time of their publica tion a century ago that are now worth a hundred times the price then asked for them. Dr. Edward Everett Hale is one of the pamphlet collectors. . He keeps his in a series of baskets suspended by rope and pulley from the beams in the ceiling of hii study. EASTERN ITEMS.

Secretary Tracy expresses fear that the House will be parsimonious in the mat ter of naval appropriations. The Massachusetts House has decided to make the salary of the Governor $8, 000, the present figure being $5,000. The bottom and 8,000,000 gallons of water one day last week dropped out of the new reservoir, at Leavenworth, Kan.

Two rain companies in Kansas are making contracts with the counties of that State at $600 a county to produce from one to two inches of rain. According to the new count of thepop. ulation of Buffalo by the State enumer ators the total will be 284,000. Tne cen sus figures in 1890 were 255,664. A bill has been introduced in the Ohio Legislature to enlarge and extend the Ohio canal so that boats can 'be towed from Lake Erie to the Ohio river. The State Department officials say that there is no truth in the report that the United States has established an alliance with the Argentine confederation. The Legislature at Albany has defeated the bill to annex Brooklyn to New York city. Tammany rule in the latter place is the chief impediment to the consoli dation. At present 2,691 students are attending the University of Michigan at Ann Ar bor, which is the largest numher ever attending an American institution of learning. David Wenger, who struck a rich vein of silver-bearing ore while digging a well at Lincoln, Mo., several days ago, has purchased machinery, and will de velop the lead. ...

Governor Flower declined to Bign a bill fixing the salaries of the Brooklyn Alder men at $2,000 on the ground that the Legislature should only grant permission to local authorities to fix salaries. General Miles believes the great need of this country is coast-defensive works. He thinks too much dependence is placed on the navy.

The blouse Committee on Agriculture has authorized a favorable report on the Paddock pure-food bill,' with some amendments. ' The Puyallup postoffice has been set tled by the resignation of Mrs. Clare Dearcey and the recommendation by all factions of Mr. Johnson, t Representative Geary of California has introduced in the House a bill to prevent the use of substitutes for hops or pure extract of hops in the manu facture of ale or beer. An appropriation of $81,833 is carried in a bill introduced by Senator Vilas, providing for the purchase of the Stur geon Bay ship canal. The canal is to be delivered to the government for use as a ree-water bay upon payment' of the amount appropriated to the company owning it. 1 . The Senate Committee on the Judi ciary has made a favorable report on the Senate bill to extend the jurisdiction of courts in Oklahoma Territory in cases of murder, assault, arson, larceny and like crimes. The bill provides that it shall not be any defense that the offense was committed by an Indian on another In dian. Captain Henry Ebern, commandant of the New York navy yard, has been promoted to the grade of Commodore, to take effect April 22, and Captain Richard W. Meade to the same grade May 5, fol lowing the retirement respectively of Admiral Kimberly and Commodore Mc Cann. Commodore James A. Greer will be promoted to the grade of Rear Ad miral April 22. - The House Committee on Territories has deided to report favorably the Caine bill to give local government to Utah, with an amendment striking out the sec tion relating to the sale of public lands for school purposes, the committee deem ing it best to have a separate measure governing this point. The vote was a party one, the Democrats favoring and the Republicans opposing the bill. The instructions to naval officers as signed to vessels intended for the pro tection of seals are not yet wholly com plete, but it is evident the operations of vessels will this year be extended not only to Behring Sea, but also the waterB within the three-mile limit along the entire Alaskan Coast of latitude 55 de grees to Enimak Pass, south of Behring Sea. This is the way of the seal herd to its rookeries on. the Prebyloff Islands, and they will be perfected along the en tire course usually followed by poachers. Nearly 22,000 seals were caught in these waters last year. The revenue vessels Corwin and Albatross have already gone to Alaskan waters, and soon will be fol lowed by the Rush and Bear and several naval vessels. ; ' . The census office has issued a bulletin on tne fisheries . The industry gave employment to 13,850 poiDuuu m vnuuua unpad ties, tue invest ed capital was $6,493,239 and the value of the products $6,367,303. The tables show that the fisheries of California are more important than those of either Or egon or Washington. Of the capital in vested $2,648,210 represented California interests, tne value of products of that State being $4,403,369. Oregon ranks next in importance, having a capital in vested of $2,296,632 and a product of $1, 033,574. The amount of capital invested in Washington is given as $517,397 and productB $891, 860, and compared with 1890, the fisheries of this region have as a whole greatly advanced, although a lew special orancnes snow a decline. The sundry civil bill reported to the Mouse recently makes cuts here and there, and slashes appropriations gener ally. It is apparent that the aDm-ODria- tions are pared down to the lowest limit which the government can be cpnducted in a very crippled condition. All the deficiencies will have to be made up early in the next Congress. The surveys for public lands are cut from $400,000 to $100,000. The money appropriated for special agents to protect public lands and the timber upon them is cut in two, and is only $20,000. This, of course, is a stab at the Western country, as when the appropriation for surveys is divided up there will be practically nothing left for any one State to go ahead and survey public lands which have been settled upon. In this bill, however, the high rates established by the last Congress for surveys in Oregon and Washington are maintained, which guarantees the surveys of the mountain and timber lands in these States. An appropriation of $19,500 is made for the Alaska Indians on the Islands of St. Paul and St. George. The Senate passed without any debate except an argument from Senator Frye upon the Columbia river Senator Dolph's bill making a lump appropriation for the completion of the Cascades improve ment. Under the contract system in the river and harbor bill this will rendei Senator Dolph's bill inoperative, but there is a possibility that Senator Mitch ell may secure the adoption of his bill as an amendment to the river and harbor bill in the Senate. If this is done, a great work will be accomplished for the Columbia river. The votes for these im provements were practically unanimous. only four being against one and eight against the other. The Oregon Senators are feeling very good over the victory. Senator Squire, although he voted for the bill, seemed to think that Oregon was getting the best of it. He said he thought it was about time Washington should receive some consideration, as the shore line along Puget Sound and other places were immensely of more importance commercially than the Co lumbia river. Although the Columbia river ' divided Washington and Oregon, and even if it should he opened up so that the wheat of Eastern Washington could go down the Columbia river, it would be of some benefit to the eastern part of the State, yet it was of commer cial interest only to Portland. . .

Balfour's leadership in the House of Commons is said to be a disappointment to ine government, ma want ot tact is irritating to his friends, and intensifies ine opposition. A bill has been introduced in the Brit ish Parliament for the creation of a Scot tish legislative body. There is a simi larity between this bill and the Irish government bill. The Aberdare tin-plate works in South Wales have closed. The Aber-Tawy works have given a month's notice ot closing, when 3,000 hands will be thrown out of employment. . ., . In consequence of communications from Paris that Nihilists were preparing to assassinate the Czar special precau tions have been taken at St. Petersburg to protect the imperial family. It is stated from London that it is practically settled that Stanley is to go out to the Congo in the interest of the Independent State before the close of the year, and will remain there for a long period. No members of the British roval fam ily are to attend the Ascot races this year. The 4aeen has given orders that the royal stand is to be kept closed, with all the blinds drawn down during the meeting. ' , ' Socialism makes steady progress in Great Britain. The land bill now before the House presented by Mr. Chaplin proposes to let County Councils borrow $50,000,000 to loan at -ZU per cent, to poor men to aid them in buj ing small farms. . ,. .. It appears that Ducouran, the Presi dent of the bank at Paris, which failed last week, who committed suicide, was an honest man, but had been victimized by colleagues in the directorate, several members of which had a bad reputation. An examination of the luggage of Deeming at Perth, Australia, has un earthed evidence that he is the man wanted at Liverpool for the murder of his wife and three children. Facts are accumulating showing the past life of the man has been one of murder, fraud and robbery. . 60METHING NEW FOR. FISHERMEN. A Contrivance to Beguile the Reluctant,. Minnow Into Acting as Bait. Many a time what promised to be a fine day's fishing has been spoiled by a, long and tedious hunt for the proper ' kind of bait with which to angle. A pair of bootheels sticking up through the grass by the side of a brook and one long rumbling growl of profanity issuing seemingly from under the earth are familiar indications to a large num ber of people who have "been there". themselves that some ardent and trri- -table fisherman is lying there on his lace- trying to keep out of sight of the timid minnows he wants to scoop up . out of the stream at one dash and then . be off. 1 But the little minnows are in no hurry. . . : , They dart away at the sight of his unfamiliar scoop net, and lie under the farther bank, wriggling their little tails tantalizingly. Now the fisherman wishes he had teken time by the forelock and secured his bait on the day before he was to start on his expedition. He re-, viles his procrastination as the minutes slip by and the hot sun beats on his back, and he resolves never to do it again. But this does not mollify the minnows in- the least, and the scene generally ends by the angler going off furious with only a few miserable little fellows In his can. i An ingenious inventor has come to the relief of fishermen lately by pro ducing a minnow trap that is hard to beat. " First of all it is wholly composed of transparent, colorless glass, and is in shape much like a big cartridge with a pointed bullet in it. It is about two and one-half feet long, and as big around as a man's leg above the-knee. It is hollow, of course, and what would be the flat end of the cartridge is punched in, like the bottom of a glass bottle, and there is a small round hole in the apex of the cone thus made. The other and the pointed end of the trap is fitted with a little sliding door. . , . This big glass cartridge is intended to be set on its side in the bottom of a brook . where minnow's abound. The cautious ones soon become accustomed to it, and the reckless fellows don't see it till they bump their noses against it. Some nice bait is put Inside the trap, and the minnows soon find their way into , it through the whole in the punched in end. The little door at the other end is shut, of course. , ' : The minnows are unable to find their way out, because they follow the sides of the trap, and this leads them into the cul de sac at the flat end, all around the bottom of the cone. They are easi- wnmiiwl..utJiowver,.'i",, the. water in the trap, by holding the thing up pointed end down and PPSSi1? lie little slide door. Wire is twisted around the outside of the trap, and forms a handle by which it is conveni ently carried, and the wire also pro tects the glasroMninr".- ."" . Baking: Powder in the New York LegU lature. The following, taken from The Oil, Paint and Drug Reporter, refers to a new bill just introduced in the Legislature of New York State; " The latest development in the bak ing powder war is the introduction of a bill in the Legislature of this State, re quiring all packages of baking powder which contain ammonia to be branded with a statement of that fact in large type on the label. " Now while"the ammonia contention is on, why cannot the law give the public the benefit of the doubt? Wholly un prejudiced people are certainly not will ing to be dosed with the substance ac knowledged as a poison, simply because scientists, some of whom are not even , physiologists, disagree as to its potency." A similar bill was introduced last April, but it is shrewdly surmised that the in fluence of interested parties prevented its passage. The provisions of the pres ent bill are so just that it probably will soon become a law. , This will be welcome news to the man ufacturers of pure Cream of Tartar bak ing powders, the most prominent of whom is the Price Baking Powder Co. of Chicago and St. Louis, makers of Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder, who have always made a strictly pure Cream of Tartar powder, notwithstanding the temptations of adulteration suggested by the enormous profits realized by a large New York concern which uses am monia, and advertises its powder as strictly pure by means of garbled official reports and certificates signed by its own employes, dubbed professor, doctor or government chemist, as fancy may dic tate. . - . A bill compelling alum powders to be conspicuously labeled as such already exists in Minnesota, and it is to be hoped in the interest of the consumer that sim ilar laws will soon be enacted in other States for ammonia as well as alum. The following powders known to con- ' tain either ammonia or alum, or both, will be affected by the proposed legislation:'.-- Royal, Pearl, Calumet, Chicago Yeast, Forest City, One Spoon (Taylor's), Bon Bon, Kenton, Echo, Snow Puff, Unrivaled, Yarnall's One Svoon, Shevhard's Econom ical, Crown, Clymax, Hercules, Monarch, JSew J-.ra, enow Hall. v ,.
