The case of A. D. Wales, attorney-
at-law, of Biogbamton, N. Y., against
former president Jobn Mitchell, of tbo
Urited Mine Workers of America, for a
claim of t200,ooo for furnishing the plan
wbich formed tbo basis ot settlement for
the anthracite strike of 1892, is to go to
trial in tbo fall. Somo time sinco it was
reported that tbe suit had been aban.
doned, but a dispatch from Binghamton
states that such is not the case. Should
this famous liwsuit come to a focus its
progress will bo watched with keen in
terest, not only by tbe groat body of
mine workers, but by the public gener
ally. Mr. Wales is a talented and ag
gressivo lawyer, 000 likely to bavo a
sensible idea of bis rights and abundant
courage to maintain them. On tho other
band, Mr. Mitchell, who has a world
wido reputation for honesty nnd truth
fulness, denies tbo claim, alleging that
Mr. Wales's plan was only one among
hundreds of suggestions made to him as
to tho btjet method for the settlement of
the Anthracite strike. President Itoose-
velt, Senator Chaunccy M. Dpew, and
other distinguished witnesses are ex
peeled to figure in tbo trial.

"Tbo Pasco Power and Water Com'
pany is tbe title ot a corporation organ
ized in tho State of Washington tor the
purpose ot reclaiming by irrigation 13,-
000 acres of rich volcanic ash laod, lying
at the janction ot the Saakoand Colam
bia rivers, which is at prooent worthless
for agricultural purposes through lack
of water. The work is nearly finished,
tbe company being now engaged in
building tbe greatest power pumping
plaut in tbo Pacific North West. It will
be operated by tbe immense force ob
tainable at Snake river Five Mile IUpids,
above the town of Pasco. The lateral
system is completed, tho main canals
being dug through the richest soil io the
State of Washington. Tbo prospective
profits of tbe corporation are lo come
from tbe sale of tracts ot tbe land witb
guarantee of perpetual water power at
the present price ot $150 per acre, witb
tbe moral certainty, based upon practi
cal experience in other districts of tbe
tate, that within three years from the
first cultivation after irrigation Ibey
will be worth three times that figure. In
countless instances, it is affirmed, five
years after Washington lands have been
reclaimed from tbe sago bush, tbe vine
yards and orchards planted on them
have yielded revenues ot from (3O0 to
1700 per acre per year. The circular of
the Company names tbo following in
ducements to possible buyers: "Finan
cial independence; cheerful surround
ings : mildest winter climate; unequalled
transportation and markets; no killing

ty of great profits in two years." We

Tbe condition of the water supplied

unfavorable comment, with respect to
both quantity and quality particularly
tho latter. During the present week 11
has improved Bumewbat, though still
leaving much to be desired. Tbe most
mportaot point of contention is wheth
er this la a necessary evil, under exist-
ng circumstances, or one that may be
remedied by a suitable and practicable
change of conditions that are under tbe
control of tho management. Tbo fact Ui
to have suffered substantially the same
vila, in greater or lees degree, under
very administration of tbe water works
1 1 has been, in tbe main, a regularly re-
urnng midsummer difficulty, due in
10 small measure to low water, and the
un.mer has been apparently aggravated
