We secured the items relative to the renewed effort to start the Leaming ton canal project too late, last week, to be available for the last edition of The Blade. We received tbe items from Messrs. G. W. Cropper and J. C. Haw-le- y and Oasis, to the effect of that meetings were recently held iu the interest of the enterprise in every town in Millard County. From the date or The Oladk's first call for the De-er- et Initial meeting our interast has never flagged, because it is the most important enterprise ever undertaken in Millard County. Those that have lived for years on Ihe Sevier river, below Leamington, know that not rive par cant of the water is utilized. Those' that have seen Ihe Sevier lake know whac the utilizawater means tion of that large body-o- f for Millard countv, if it can only be done. That it can be done by the residents of the County is unquestioned, provided they will to do it. Every stream in Millard, except the Sevier, and a small creek in the northwestern part of the county, is utilized to almost their entire capacity. There are thousands of young men and youths tn Millard county merging into manhood that need homes, and unless they an be secured in the Pahvant valley, they wll be compelled to swarm, and so far as obtaiaiu new farm3 in Utah $S cuacerned, every one knows that the opportunities are baing narrowed down with each passing year. In addition flo the unpleasantness of having your sons and daughters migrate, it is bad policy to have the flower of Millard ountygoto build up other states posWe speak advisedly sibly when we say the "flower," because the hustlers will hunti new fields, while 6he drones will stay at home, and it tvould . only be, one or two generations lieforeMi Hard County,as a whole, would fte cursed with about the e aoie (per haps mbre)Joafers that now infest Des-- , eret. To avoid such a cilamity, the people ough t to build that canal. Another reason is found in the fact Dhat Millard will h ive to maintain a (Sountv; organization, and the more and the more property population there is in the Cou.uy, the less will the taxation be per capita. Under the route of the proposed canal are ithousands ot acres of as choice laud as can be found in the, West. The land will also be convenient to fJitnber fencing and fuel. The irrigated areja of the County will be more than doubled and i.he population will' be trebled. The surpuls water could be turned on the bottom- lands during the win-teseason, or when not in use, and: thousands of acres of fine y pasture land Wuld ba thus obtai tied. Another fact that ought to be considered,- is "that tlie couutry under the canal is one a f co mpa ra t i v eiy 1 i g h t s no vv- - fa 1, t a n d would,' therefore, be a more pleasant lo cality than, those nearer the moun-thins.' c Toe principal 'part of the out-la- y will tie labor ofwjiich, during the fall and winter month 3," there is a in Millard- County, aud if the rjsoplejpermit the greatest and most Xiromising enterprise ever projected, in that region to lapse into the hands' of strangers and under the control of outside capital, tueir posterity: wilt not rise up and call their parents "bless ed:" .

And now Russia is furnishing the more civilized governments with an object ksson in the matter of dealing with the liquor traffic.
