The third irrigation congress again draws nntional attention to a subject of commanding interest. The vast region to which the name arid America is properly applied comprises the whole of the United States lying west of the ninety-eighth meridian, with the exception of northern California and the portions of Oregon nnd Washington west of the Cascade range. Seventeen states and territories lie wholly or in part within its confines, which embrace two-fifths of tho national domain. The distinguishing characteristic of this region is its aridity, but it also differs widely from tho eastern states and the middle west iu soil, in climate and in the range of productions, writes a Now York Sun correspondent who has investigated some of the largest irrigating enterprises of the arid region. He gays: Here nature has been most prodigal. tt is a laud of towering mountain ranges and of smooth plains whose extent seems limitless. Its climate is unique. The world's sanitarium is here. In thisiand of sunshine and dry, pure air the health seeker may find the coveted boon. Here are the nation's treasure vaults, for the granite mountains are seamed with veins of gold and silver. The soil of its plains and valleys is of marvelous depth Mid richness, needing bnt the touch of water to clothe itself with verdure and blossom into fruitfulness. And here, many believe, are millions of famiKes to find homes and a degree of prosperity and industrial independence heretofore unknown among the agricultural classes. Irrigation is to be the great factor in the founding of this new empire. {Storage reservoirs must be built to husband every drop of the precious water, and canals must be dug to convey it to the thirsting earth. What individuals and corporations have been doing in favored localities in various parts of the arid region must be done on a vast scale. Many are advocating the cession by the government to the ieveral states of the ' public lauds within their respective borders that each may undertake for itself the work of reclamation. Others see grave objections to such a plan. To the majority of people irrigation is a new idea, but it ie as old as civilization. Long before the conquest of America the Indian and the Mexican had built canals and < reservoirs . upon the arid plains of what are now New Mexico and Arizona. For the beginning of irrigation in the United States by the white man we have to go back but 25 years. During this period a vast deal , has bean accomplished, though bearing but nu insignificant ratio to tho whole gigantic task. According to the census of 1890, a total of 8,080,000 acres was under irrigation in the states composing the arid region. This was loss than one-half of 1 per cont of the total area of tho arid region, but the value of these irrigated lauds, with their water rights, was found to bo $390,850,000, or almost three-fourths of the value of all the gold aiid silver mines in the United States, with the railroads and other improvements. Tho aggregate length of tho greater canals — thoBoovor 15 feet wide— was fouud to bo 9,000 miles and their o»st was over $37,000,000. In California alon9 about $18,000,000 has been spout ou irrigation worfcs and in Colorado $10,000,000. Numerous irrigation projects have cost from $1,000,000 to $2,000,000 eaoh, and within tho noxt two or three years tho money invested in the construction of irrigation works will probably roach tho enormous sum of $00, 000, 000. From these figures some idea may bo gained of what will bp involved iu the reclamation of any considerable portion of arid, America. But if tho cost of irrigation works IB groat their value immediately they come into productive uso is immonsialy greater, while tho increase in the value of lands they water is altogether prodigious. According to tho eleventh census, the first cost of tho irrigation systems iu use iu 1889 was $29,011,000, and thoir value i» 1890 was $94,412,000, an increase of aiS pur cunt— -iu othur words, tho value of tho productive irrigation works had uioru thuu trebled. The first cost of tho irrigated areas, with their water rights, was found to bo $77,400,000, while thoir value was $200,860,000, au increase in a fuw years of 288 per cent.

Of frequent occurrence are the queries: What is the cost of tile drainage and necessary frequency of tiles to secure perfect drainage? What depth? Professor T. P. Roberta answered these questions not long ago Jn A letter to Rural New Vorker as follows: In heavy clay land tile drains should be laid three feet deep and 40 feet apart. One thousand tiles will suffice for an acre. Two inch tilos will carry tho wa- \ I FIG. I—HAP OF DRAINED FIBLD. ter of ii, 000 or 5,000 linear feet of drain. When 5,000 feet are reached,, a 3 inch tile should be used and will carry water np to 15,000 feet. Pipe tiles and no other should be used. At the New York station at Geneva last year they cost per 1,000 as follows: Two inch, $10; 2^ inch, $15; 8 inch, $30; 4 inch $35; 6 inch, $00.. The cost of draining and filling the ditches varies from 30 to 60 cents per rod. A few rules should be carefully observed in underdraining land. The work should be well done. Tarred building paper in strips 3 inches wide should encircle the joints for three-fourths of their upper circumferences. Avoid by every device, mains and submaius—that is, do not join the drains, but make each one run parallel, or nearly BO, to the others, even if the drains have to make wide circles or deep digging has to be resorted to in order to get through high knolls. Fig. 1 shows the parallel system, while Fig. 2 shows a main drain, which in no sense is a drain, but a conduit for carrying off water. It will be seen that BRYAN TICKET STANDS.

Then, too, this main drain will cost twice as much per rod as tho laterals while being entirely useless if it can bo avoided. llblu of nlu ia dl> lul'ifiu.

Prairie Farmer Bays: Tho allotment of arid lands to states is roally one of tho most important measures passed by this congress, so far as Kansas, Nebraska and Golorai'u uro coiicoruocl.

It in estimated thnt it will cost about ijiJO a.u anrp to ii}t;ro- dnco a succossful Kystem of irrigation! and it is buliuvod that there is enough confidence in tho undertaking to induce investors to take hold of tho work. A Simple Hcmody For Gojihers. The simplest remedy for gophers is strychnine. American Agriculturist says that tho best and safest way to apply it is to take some nrieius, of which gophers arc very fond, split them and put u few crystals of tho poison in tho middle, thon oloso up tho raisin, and it is ready for use. Curry a fow of tht*a in your pookut, and when you como to a gopher's holu dig into his runway, plain* one or two raisins there, and you will not be troubled uuy more by that individual poet.

LINCOLN^ Oct. 9,— Secretary ot State Allen Monday heard the protests of ex- Btato Chairman Martin of the Democratic party against his decision declaring the convention which nominated Holcornb for governor the legal body. Many prominent Democrats were present. Hon. John L. Ames opened with the reading of a supplemental protest, in which he urged the objections to the action of the secretary of state, as follows:' That if the certificate as filed by State Chairman Smythe was to be accepted the real Democrats would be disfranchised and the former would have their names on the ticket twice. Then followed an interpretation of the alleged doctrine of the old line Democrats and the points in which the Populists .disagree therewith. lie claimed that the election law did not contemplate the duplication of names on the ticket and read from the decision the courts of various other states alleged parallel cases, and asked of the secretary a reversal of his former decision. The coses cited were from HO Michigan, page 104, and 18 Colorado, page 6. A. J. Sawyer followed with the reading of several other decisions on the same line. Judge Strode, for the Bryan ticket, replied, claiming that the cases cited were not parallel one*, and W. H. Thompson supported him in a brief argument. B)The secretary ot state sustained his former decision. The administration men will now resort to the courts. WM L WILSON WELCOMED HOME. Wot Virginia Cmigrcii»m«n .

He was met at Harper's Perry by a special train crowded with enthusiastic Second district Democrats, who escorted him to his native town. A great moss meeting was convened at the courthouse immediately after the arrival of the special bearing Mr. Wilson, Mr. McOraw calling the meeting to order and introducing Mr. Wilson. He began his address with a touching reference to the popular demonstration which had greeted him upon bin return and thanked his fellow citizens and his friends and neighbors for the unanimity with which they had taken part in his welcome. Referring to political matters, Mr. Wilson said he should not be able to take up in any ordinary and satisfactory manner the discfussiou of the public Issues of the day, because they had been rushed from shipboard to train and from the train to tbo platform with scarcely any chance for thought. ••We have reached," said he, "that Btage iu the development of our country when we are compelled to have larger markets for our surplus products, and •uch markets, through foreign trade, are the only safety valves for the health and the prosperity of tho American laborer in the field and in the factory."

For that reason they ire expected to make heroic efforts to lecide the contest at once. They are without the heavy clothing, camp equipment, etc., for a campaign in the bitter cold.
