The ,eiisiou of the franchise and the exteu- ion of so-called undesirable immi- nts. The electoral act of 1S59 open- d the franchise to manhood suftra. ud voting by- ballot. There were four dditiontil acts: One act of importance 11 ring the pre-lahor epoch of 1SGO plac- d alight restriction's on aliens: oue f 1S61 placed a poll tax of ?50 ou ach Chinaman and allowed the entry only one Chinese to every ten tons urthen; an act of 1SSO further re- ricted Chinese! and an act of 1SSS uposed a poll trfK'ut" on all Chin- j ie permitted: fo laud and restricted, lips to the carriage of only one Chin- ;e passenger to every 300 ions, and irtlier refused to all Chinese ualur- ization Vights and the right to mine rthout the permissiou of the rainis- r for mines. There was a furiher so-called demo- cratic this pub- lic instruction act of ISSO, which abol- ished state aid to denominational schools and established a system of compulsory and. partly free secular ed- ucation. Thus during -the first thirty- five years of constitutional govern- ment in" New South Wales the masses from their point of view at least, were hardly considered. But even then Aus- tralia had become so enamored of the "white Australia" idea that employers of labor had but little general support their demand for cheap Chinese labor.

A remarkable project, intended to increase the water supply of Salt Lake a mountain in order to reach streams much promise of success. A How of gallons :i- day lias already beet! obtained in this unique fashion, and it is believed that the amount will be increased many fold before long. The problem of supplying'water for tho rapidly growing population of this a most difficult one. Streams that Now down from the mountains are j, not sufficient for city and irrigation uses, and for impounding the spring floods will not suffice for many years, j .For this reason the attention of those who had to find water for this city i. for several years has been turned underground. Mining operations In all -directions have shown that the mountains aro honeycombed with living streams, which apparently do not. reach tho surface, at least in this region. It was suggested several years ago by scien- tiiic men whoso counsel was sought that it entirely feasible for the city to top some of these currents. .V f tunnel 'was driven in Emigration Can- yon and a large supply was thus gain- ed. Now ;L larger bore is beinK sent toward a formation that is likely to I he pierced by large sirenins. In two cases ill ready streams have .been struck that were so powerful that dy- iiiimite could not be forced into the crevh-rs to oiwn them still farther. Demonstration, that, the mountains can thus be tapped will be of im- inenae importance in the development of the west, for irrigation promoters would thus be able to water much j land that is now waste.
