TIIE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: TIIUKSDA MORNING, JUNE tt, lb93.
TEMPE, ARIZONA. JUNK 8, 18!3.
THE FOURTH AT TEMPE,
Preparations Being Made for a
Which Will Eclipse AH Previous
Extensive arrangements are being
perfected for a Fourth of July celebra
tionat Tempe that will eclipee any
thing of the kind over held in Arizona.
Invitations will bo sent out to nil parts
of the territory and the various clubs
nnd organizations of Phoenix and Mesa
will be invited to take part in the fes
tivities. Competitive races will be
utarted, both for horsemen and wheel
men, while sprinters from the barefoot
boy to the octogenarian will be given a
A number of races have already been
Arranged, including the celebrated
horses from Goldman and Danes' sta
bles and a challenge will be issued to
thoeo owning trotters at Phoenix to
compete with those on the South Side.
The running horses front Mesa City
will also be on the ground and good
peed will be developed. Tempo has
the only kite-shaped track in Arizona
and the horsemen on this side feel con
fident they can at least hold their own
with horses from any part of the terri
tory. The declaration of indeperdenco will
be read in the morning and orations
will be delivered by the best available
talent of Phicnix and Tempe.
Outdoor dancing will be the order of
the evening on a platform to be pro
Tided for the occasion on the military
grounds. Special trains will run be
tween Phoenix and Tempo.
The buttes will be illuminated in the
evening and several hundred dollars'
'worth of fireworks will awaken the
echoes and enliven the scene.
No pains will be spared to make the
celebration a success nnd eveiythinp
will be on a scale elnbornto enough t"
provide for the convenience, of all. A
mass meeting of citizens will be called
in a few days to raise funds and com
plete tho arrangements.
The Baptist Social.
A pleapant ice cream social wnB given
on Tuesday evening, at Goodwin Uros'
residence. "in East Tempe, under the
auspices of the ladies of the ladies of
tho JJiiptist church. Free s.rett car
nd ice cream, two for a quarter,
broueht out a large number of the fun
loving people ot the town. Fair ladies
and gallnnt joimi: men indulged by
turns in despoiling delicious ianils and
plaing children's games, while the
more n-dale prcmenaded the spacious
grounds or watched the urchin turn
comersaults. The festivities lasted un
til aftyr 11 o'clock and during the en
tire time, sociality seemed universal,
every one apparently endeavoring to
make life nt least bearable for three
around them. The walls of the man
sion re-echoed with strains of choice
music, which continued to woo the
pleating tenses of the party through
out the entire evening. Tempe tocials
are a decided success, at least from a
fun-making stand point.
Neighboring With the Train.
The usual question asked in Tempo
after dusk is are you going to the train?
The custom of going each evening has
become universal and at 8:15 when the
train pulls in from Pluenix a merry
throng of gentlemen ami ladles is there
to greet any they might know who arc
outward bound and to sny good bje lo
those of our own dear town who will in
a few minutes begone rut not forgotten.
Lai-t evening the train ca-ried Col. T.
L. Schultz and lady, of Tempe, and
almost the entire town was out to wish
them n pleat-ant journey to the world'n
fair. Col. Schultz went well provided
however with advertising literature nnd
will do mist-ionaty work during the
summer. While almost every eiiht
bound train is met by the many the
morning train which arrives at 3:16 is
sometime? met by those of a ctiriotiH
turn of mind. (J no young gentleman
was up two mornings in succession re
cently but each time he returned with
a look of disappointment. The (hud
morning he did not get up early enough
and with usual luck she was' on the
train and passed by to Phoenix.
The Normai school term closes on

G. K. Smith came in from Phcenix
yesterday to sol'cit business in his line,
but finding a reiddent tailor here he
gjneroiily refrained from soliciting
any trade. Resident tradesmon who
do not advertise their business simply
invite competition, as Tempo in at
tracting outsidn attention nnd every
branch of industry is closely wntched
tor an opening.
Chas. Anderson, formerly of Phrcnix,
but who now reid"s on n ranch near
Mesa, was in Tempo yesterday. A
neighbor received a telegram ths even
ing before that his sun had died sud
denly at Deming, N. M. The telegram
was received twenty-five minutes before

Boom Towns of tho Worst That
Aro Now Desolate
The Hlse Hnil Fall or Mining Camps
Which Oncn Hail Thousand! of Poo-
pl. Hut Are Now thn Anodes of
Owls and Smikci.
If Oliver Goldsmith were nlivo to
make a tour of tho far western states
and of somo sections of tho south, ho
could find many a deserted village there
that was once tho liveliest if not, like
his beloved Auburn, the loveliest of the
plain. In Knnsas alone, according to
the New York World, whero it would
appear thit townc as well as individuals
have felt tho disastrous results of
phlebotomy, there arc fully twenty such
abandoned villages, and in Nevada,
California, Ccorffia and Alabama they
.ire numerous. Once thriving mining
eainps like Itodio and White Pine that
irrew great inn night; boom towns such
as Fargo Springs, that sprang up as
(Illicitly as if a magician had called
them Into being, and prosperous and
substantial cities like Sumner, in early
days tho most important town nnd
prospective metropolis of Kansas
scores of these decayed municipalities
now Ho abandoned and desolate, thc.'r
houses empty of hutxnn tenants and
rotting away, their streets thick with a
rank growth of weeds, and only a few
old timers, or in somo cases only a soli
tary postmaster, left to tpll men of the
present generation of tlu,;r former
bustle and prosperity. In various in
stances, as at Petersburg, in Georgia,
nothing but mounds of earth and a
populous cemetery remain to testify to
tho town's departed glory.
Especially mournful has been the
fate of those abandoned towns whose
only inhabitants to-day aro the animals
and reptiles that have left prairie and
sand hills to take refuge in tho deserted
dwellings. Time has played one of his
most fantastic tricks with human for
tune in permitting oh Is to flit about
nnder ll'.o rafters that echoed all the
night through to the boisterous revelry
of owl clubs, nnd snakes to Ffjuirm un
der tho ve-y tables at whieh barkeepers
dealt out biting red eyo in exc hango for
gold dust; while v.olves pmv.l through
the forsaken lair of the tiger. It is like
plunging into an atmosphcro of gloom
to visit these blighted cities, for on
every side stand mute reminders of tho
feverish activity of tho past to intensify
tho sad stillness of the present.
Perhaps the most strikingof accounts
of ruined boom towns are those which
relate the untoward fato of Pierce City
and Kit Carson. Less than a genera
tion ago Pierce City, with its lawless
population of twenty thousand miucn
and gamblers, was one of the most
notablo settlements between Dcnvei
and the coast. Its inhabitants to-day
arc a handful of Chinamen, while Kit
Carson has only ono hundred left of tho
seven thousand restless souls, who
twenty years ago sought gold by day
and revelry by night.
THE COAL SUPPLY.
Thcro Is No Immeilluto Danger of Its
Tho enormous consumption of coal
and its ultimate result, the exhaustion
of the supply, have frequently been re
ferred to by way of warning and admo
nition. Thcro is, of course, a limit to
tho amount of coal that man can obtain
from tho crust of tho earth. The con
ditions under which the carboniferous
deposits were made, and tlmltv-ilitii.e
, where they can bo found nnd worked,
are Known, anu it is not unlikely that
within a few centuries mankind will
have to look ekewhero for the mechan
ical energy whieh is now derived from
tho burning of coal.
Hut tho situation i3 not quite so des-
pcrate, says Youth's Companion, as ft
has sometimes been represented. Petro
leum, for instance, is beginning to be
used in the placo of coal. Many per
sons connect petroleum with coal in
their minds, supposing that the two aro
always found in the same localities, and
are necessarily related to ono another
in their origin. Hut this is not so. Pe
troleum is far more widely distributed
Coal is found principally in ono Ifind
of strata, namely, the so-called carbon
iferous formation, but petroleum or
rock oil exists in many different strata,
and the famous Itussian chemist, Dr.
Mcndelieff, believes that it is constant
ly being formed in the interior of tho
earth by tho nction of the water which
slowly leaks downward upon metals
contained in the heated core of tho
In this respect, then, petroleum dif
fers greatly from coal, because the lat
ter is not now bglng formed at least
not innnyconsiderablequantlty while
petroleum, if the theory just btatqd Is
correct, is a constant product of the in
ner activity of the planet.
Hut it is not likely that wc shall be
compelled to resort solely to petroleum
when our coal supplies have been ex
hausted, for science Is continunlly open
ing up for us new sources of energy in
nature. Electricity holds forth some as
yet indefinite promises, which scientific
men think may revolutionize the me
It is not likely, then, that future gen
erations will either freeze to death or
abandon the machinery of civilized life
when the last ton of coal has been lifted
out of the rocks.
Who doubts that knowledge somo
kinds of knowledge, at least is largely
a matter of intuition?

It has been reported around town
by unreliable persons that should Mr.
Hough have no opposition in the ice
business, he will raise the price of ice
to 13 cents a pound. This is a calumny
and to prove its falsity Mr. Hough will
sign a contract to guarantee ice all the
year round nt 1 cent a pound, and
should any cut be made, the customers
will get the benefit of it. It pays to
patronize home industry.
