New York, October 14. Tho Inde
pendent will publish tomorrow articles
received by telegraph from President
Woodruff, of tho Mormon church, and
Governor Thomas, of Utah, concerning
the action of tho Mormon conference on
October 0, forbidding jwlygamy.
President Woodruff says: "The action
of Congress is conclusive. Tho Church
has no disposition to violate the laws or
to defy the Government. Tho revelation
of God requires us to obey tho constitu
tional laws ot the land. Judge .ano has
recognized the action of tho Church as
sincere and final and has rescinded his
rule excluding Mormon aliens from
Governor Thomas says: "The mani
festo of tho President oftho church has
now been confirmed by tho conference.
It comes with the force of a new revela
tion, and whatever doubts may havo ex
isted as to the purpose and effect of the
manifesto as lirst sent out, they now
seem removed. Gentiles rejoico that
the contest begun so many years ago
against polygamy has finally triumphed,
for they believe that never again will
polygamy flourish on American soil.
Thfs is tho most important event that
has occurred in the Mormon church in
years, and it is believed will result in
greatly advancing tho material interests
and prosperity of tho Territory."

Light Attendance For tho
Opening Address By Acting

Nothingof interest transpired until 1 :30,
when the first race on tho program was
announced, after which J, D. Monihon,
President of the Association, introduced
Acting Governor Murphy, who made
tho following address :
"Fellow Citizens : I greet you with
pleasure today, tho progressive people
of a prosperous Territory.
"We havo assembled at tho seventh
annual meeting of this Association in
response to an elevating sentiment of
emulation and competition in industrial
and intellectual progress.
"Expositions of natural and artificial
productions have been held throughout
the world since tho birth of civilization,
and competitive exhibitions, illustrating
physical and intellectual development in
all the relations of nature and man, have
met with earnest approval in every en
"All tho nations of tho earth arc com
peting for placo in tho march of pro
gress, and today at Chicago tho prelimi
nary details aro being arranged for tho
greatest exposition of modem times.
"Arizona proposes to maintain an
appropriate placo in tho procession.
We are young but wo aro strong; strong
in a vigorous and progressive spirit;
strong in the procession of a country
of uneqalled resources; and strong in
our determination to compel recogni
tion of our claims, industrially and
"While we aro youthful and vigorous,
wo are also in somo respects very old ;
older than any other known locality in
this great nation. Wo are surrounded
within the range of our vision today,
with tho buried cities and silent dead of
a people lost to history; and it is not
impossible that in ages long since past,
and of which no record exists, upon this
very ground a comparatively enlight
ened people held industrial expositions
as we are doing now.
"The student of ethnology finds hero
his most interesting field ; yet he has
searched in vain for a satisfactory clue
to tho origin and end of the unknown,
and it is believed unknowable race that
once populated tho beautiful valleys of
"We aro both old and young; but our
duty is to meet and solve the growing
problems of tho present. It is needless
to recount the almost phenomenal pro
gress of tho Territory during the life of
"Our population has increase! 50 per
cent in a decade, and our material
wealth has developed in a larger propor
tionate degree. Every industry 'has
flourished; irrigation and agriculture
aro especially conspicuous for tho ad
"It is estimated by competent author
ity that there are now in operation over
a thousand miles of irrigating canals
and ditches in the Territory and half a
million acres of land are" being culti
vated, while the arable land which may
be cultivated under feasible extensions
of tho present ditch system together
with new canals and storage reservoirs
is placed at 0,000,000 of acres. When
this immense area is considered in con
nection with the marvelous richness of
the soil and tho wonderful variety of
products, tho agricultural and horticul
tural wealth of Arizona can scarcely be
"Tho agricultural products of Mari
copa county alone for the current year
arc conservatively stated at 40,000,000
pounds of grain and 200,000,000 pounds
of nllalfa, and there are upwards of
3,000 acres of bountifully productive
,"I cannot give statistics as to the
amount of fruit actually produced, yet
I am informed that it has been some
thing astonishing considerinc the acreage
cultivated. Tho fruit is not only of a
high grade, but it goes to market from
twenty to forty days earlier than the
fruits of other sections of tho country.
"The raisin and fig industries aro fast
becoming prominent and profitable, and
tho quality and quantity of the product
cannot bo excelled on tho continent.
Tho season for drying and packing these
fruits is much earlier hero than else
where in the country, and the Salt River
Valley is entitled to tho credit of having
dried and packed tho first raisins and
figs that havo been packed anywhere in
the United States in the year 1890.
"Our peoplo are shipping large quan
tities of honey to the States east of tho
Misissippi. Our exports of minerals aro
daily increasing and thesupplyis becom
ing practically inexhaustible with de
velopment. The grazing industry is
growing in importnnco and profit, and
tho improved character of tho stock is
evident on every side; in fact, the ani
mals that will bo on exhibition at this
Fair, in tho inclosures and on the race
track, will compare lavorably with tho
stock of any of tho States.
"It is not my purposo to give in detail
statistical information. I will leave that
duty to your Chamber of Commerce and
Industrial Associations. I can truthfully
assert, however, in tho language of one
of our ablest chroniclers:
' 'That every agricultural product con
ducive to the support and comfort of
man can bo grown in Arizona; every
motel and mineral that supplies the fur
naces of modern civilization can be found
here; the balmy airs of the tropics and
tho breezes of tho north, meet and
mingle in this Territory, and form a
climate perfect in its healthful, invigor
ating and trcngthening qualities; hero
the foundations of a great State aro
already laid, resting securely upoi in
telligence, industry, free "education,
liberal laws and good order: but, not
withstanding our great advantages and
wealth of natural resources, there are
ceitnin important duties incumbent
upon us at this time in order to bring
about tho full degree of prosperity to
which wo aro justly entitled.'
"We must have north and south rail
roads, and wo must secure our proper
place in tho Sisterhood of States. State
hood will bring tho desired railroads,
and railroads will bring Statehood.
"When wo become a State wo can
spend our own money without begging
for Congressional permission to induce
tho construction of railroads, or for any
other purpose. Wo will soon own
school lands ; our natural resources will
bo made more conspicuous nnd our
wealth proportionately increased, with
tho right to tax ourselves for necessary
and desirable improvements, which is
now denied us by Congressional restric
tions. "We nro now legislated for without
representation ; we havo a delegate in
Congress, but wo have no vote, and our
peoplo havo no say in tho selection of
their Territorial officers.
"Statehood will bo nn effective in
ducement to desirable immigration;
the increase in the expense of govern
ment will bo compensated more than a
hundred fold by tho increase in popula
tion and material wealth. Our citizens
are thoroughly patriotic and loyal to
American principles of government,
and wo simply ask the heritago pur
chased by our forefathers with tneir
lives anil blood, tho right of representa
tion when taxed.
"I have said that a north and south
railroad will bring Statehood, and, my
friends, thoro is not a shadow of doubt
in tho premises. No public improve
ment can bo originated so necessary to
tho progress and welfare of our people
as tho construction of a railroad con
necting northern and southern Arizona;
and no public enterprise can possibly
be promoted that will havo greater
effect in advancing property values, in
creasing the population and qualifying
tho Territory beyond question for the
honor and responsibilities of Statehood.
"It is not necessary for me at this time
to enter into an extended review of the
advantages which north and south
railroad construction will bring. The
subject has been thoroughly investi
gated by our people and is understood
by them, and I believe the wish is prac
tically unanimous among our taxpayers
that every legitimate effort lie made to
induce the construction of a road by
proper subsidy, exemption from tax
ation, or any other effective and reason
"I havo heard it stated by interested
parties who are opposed to the measure,
that a subsidy, if granted, will increase
the already heavy taxation to such an
extent as to le grieviously burdensome
to the people.
"I take this opportunity of contradict
ing tho statement, and "l do not hesi
tate to assert that taxes will be reduced
by the construction of tho road, even
with subsidy aid. Before the construc
tion of tho Phnmix and Maricopa rail
road in this county tho rate of taxation
was higher than after the road was
built, notwithstanding the $200,000 of
subsidy given, and the same is true of
Yavapai county and the construction of
the Prescott aiid Arizona Central rail
way. "In the three years just previous to
tho construction of tho Maricopa and
Pha-nix line, tho increase of property
values in Maricopa county amounted to
$407,809, while the increase during the
three years immediately subsequent to
building of the road amounted to the
$2,587,397, or more than six times the
increase for a liko period before con
struction, pnd the rate of taxation was
reduced from 3 to 2)j cents.
"These figures aro taken from the
county records, nnd they speak louder
than can volumes of rhetoric. The ad
vantoges of the road cannot be fully
measured nt this timo; they affectcvery
material interest of the Territory.
"Tlie Fifty-first Congress so far has not
authorized the subsidy which tho peo
ple desire to grant to secure a north and
south road, and it is possible that favor
able action cannot be secured during
the second session.
"In view of which other inducements
should bo devised ; possibly exemption
from taxation by Territorial enactment,
provided a road cannot be secured with
out aid from the people.
"It is reported a road may bo built
without a subsidy. I sincerely hope the
reports are well founded. This associa
tion is presumably a Territorial insti
tution, which was authorized and ap
propriate! for by act of the Legislature,
and it is expected and desired that all
localities and industries of Arizona be
represented at tho annual exhibitions;
yot owing to the lack of transportation
facilities across the Territory, tliis expo
sition has virtually become a local
affair, and confined principally to the
interests of this immediate section ; this
is altogether wrong, and makes it almost
impossible for tho Association to be
successful in promoting the object for
which it was formed.
"At tho late Territorial Fair held in
Albuquerque, New Mexico, wo aro ad
vised that Northern Arizona was largely
represented, and our neighboring city oi
Prescott took quite a conspicuous part,
although it was necessary to travel 500
miles to reach Albuquerque.
"Prescott is only 100 miles from Phut
nix, yet the means of transportation arc
such as to virtually preclude proper rep-,
rcscntation at our Territorial Fails.
"I will add in this connection, that
while this lack of interest and represen
tation is principally attributable to poor
transportation facilities, yet it is to a
largo extent inexcusable.
"Every locality in Arizona should bo
represented at these Expositions, and
every industry should advertise through
this channel its most prominent advan
tages. "It is our duty as citizens of this great
Territory interested in the prosperity
and progress of this commonwealth, to
unito our efforts in making the Terri
torial Fair Association a success, as well
as an advantage and credit to Arizona.
It is not proper to shift the responsi
bility for the success of this Fair to the
shoulders of a few. But it should be the
duty of every citizen of the Territory to
take an active interest.
"An opportunity is now offered to ad
vertise our resources such as we may not
have again for many years.
"I refer to tho World's Fairat Chicago.
And it would seem to me a most excel
lent idea to accumulate exhibits at the
Territorial Fair and from hero re-ship to
Chicago. All next season can bo devoted
to the collection of exhibits, and after
exposition by this Association in Octo
ber, they can bo shipped to Chicago in
ample time for placement there. In my
iiidcment the advantages of these meat
Expositions in promoting progress (of
new countries especially), cannot bo
overestimated, and I favor a liberal ap
propriation in aid of a creditable repre
sentation by Arizona.
"Returning to the subject of statehood
and in connection therewith a north
and south railroad, our duty is plain.
If we desire to inako available our'great
natural wealth, and build up an empire
within ourselves, exciting the envy and
admiration of all America: if we desire
to utilize tho untold millions in our
rock-ribbed mountains, and place in the
markets of tho world our unequalled
agricultural and horticultural products
and tho excellent stock of our almost
limitless pastures ; if we desire to es
tablish our wives and families with
comfort and plenty, and make every
man a king, in the independence of
worldly possessions ; if we wish our
pioneers to drown in a wavo of unex
ampled prosperity, recollections of early
hardships and Indian warfare; if we
desire tho proud distinction of being a
sovereign State, we must work togetiier
earnestly to secure the industrial and
political recognition we have earned.
"And when wo have won the victory,
and firmly planted another brilliant
light upon" the luurc field of the grand
old flag, we can look back down tho
rugged pathway we havo climbed, and
with exultation to tho world, as did
the people of magnificent Kansas, an
nounce: 'Ad astra per aspera.'
Through difficulties we havo attained
