Washington, May 24— Surgeon J.

Olympia, h is arrived here on leave.
He came ahead of the Oiympia to
avoid the loug delays of the sail via
the Snez canal. Snrgeoa Page has
been on the tt igship ever since Dewey
took command, seeing him daily and
having general charge of the medical

anv appreciable change in his appear

course every one in the Heet has suffer*

It takes a!! the life out of a strong man
and undo.** his energy and ambition.
In that Dewey suffered with all the rest

did he show signs of anxiety That was
when the head gunner retiorted our

was about the time we pulled off for
breakfast, and it had a depressing ef-

the officer on deck reported that the
Reina Christiana and Castillia were
afire. That was the turning point, and
the Admiral had no anxiety after that.”

Washington, May 24—The United
States Geological survey has just is-
sued an important volume prepared by
v . H. J. ewell, felating to the use of
water for power, irrigation and other
industries, being the product of ten
years of experience and systematic meas-
urement. It gives facts concerning the
rivers in the various localities from
Maine to California and shows the great-
est, least and average flow by months.
The greater part of the volume is
given to facts concerning the rivers of
the west, particularly those used in ir-
rigation. The Missouri river and tri-
butaries in Montana and Wyoming are
described and figures of available water
inserted. A iarge number of measure-
ments of the head waters of the Platte
river in Colorado are also given, and
the importance of its stream to the dev-
elopment of Nebraska shown. In a
similar way the Arkansas river is des-
cribed and data hearing upon the great
problem of inter state water placed on
record, Kansas farmers claiming the ir-
rigators in Colorado are taking water
which belongs to them. Similar con-
ditions are shown to exist on the Rio
Grande, the waters of which are not
only claimed by Colorado and New
Mexico, bnt also by the Repnblic of
Mexico, giving rise to an important in
teruational contention. Facts regard-
ing the rivers in Texas are also noted

"No movement,” o»iu a merchant
yesterday, "to build a union depot by
popular subscriptions can be success-
ful for the reason that no twenty-five
subscribers to the fund cau»gree on a
location. Every subscriber will want
the depot located near his property. It
we ever nave a uuion depot it will he
built by the railroads for their own ac
oomuiodation and to save the expense
of transfers, la in v opinion the best
location in the city for a union depot is
on El Faso street iu front of the Ketel-
sou & Degatau building; aud the next
best location is the present site of the
T. & P. depot "
"I have not signed any of these ex
pansiou and anti-exp-msiou petitions,"
said an old Veteran of the civil war yes-
terday, "because I cannot see how
these meetings are to accomplish any
good. Two-thirds of the men who
signed the call for that meeting to-
night are anti-expansionists; they are
opposed to the administration’s Philip-
pine policy. But they are afraid that
if they give expression to their honest
eonnvietiouB they will be misunder-
stood by onr boys in the Philippines
That is my position; 1 say wait until
Aguiualdo has been thrashed aud then
we can get together and declare we are
opposed to expansion. ”

"Now that we have succeeded in
breaking up most of the smuggling busi-
ness,” said Collector Billon the other
day, "I intend to get after some of the
violators of the contract labor laws. In
the cigar factories of El Paso there is
no doubt whatever bnt there are a large
number of aliens employed who reside
in Juarez aud simply come here to
work. This is a gross violpfion of the
Alien labor laws and the parties em
ploying them have been warned time
after time. Next we are goiag to act
and there will be no warnings.”
Reports received by Engineer Follet
of the international Boundary com-
mission from the gauging station at
Rio Grande, north of Albuquerque, say
that the water in the river is again
falling aud everything indicates a dry
river for the season "Unless there is
a change quickly for the better,” said
Mr. Follet "the ontlook for Ihe farmers
is (lark, indeed."
