Dear Sjr: l
An article appeared in the Her-
mid on' the 20th instant, signed ' by
"Citizen!" saying that otir';develop
ment and prosperity were about to be
retarded unless certain things were
done. He mentioned timber, irriga

things upjon. "which the future and

Mr. Newell, conclusively "'"d'emon-
