were set forth:
Resolved, That it is the sense of thi
meeting that we heartily endorse all

Arizona Pioneers and whiob they may
take In the future in regard to this the
most Important of all questions to every
residentof Arizona "SbTall our property
and our lives remain, in the future as in

experience of the men composing that
society, we recommend that It send one of
its members to Washington to represent
the true condition of affairs in this Terri
tory, as brought about by past and pres
ent Indian troubles.
After copies of the preamble and reso
lutions had been ordered sent to Presi
dent Cleveland and the Pociety of Pioneers,
the meeting adjourned without a day.

Artesiax Water. The "Pbcenix Her
aid," in referring to the discovery of
artesian water at Antelope, in the Mojave
desert on the line of the Southern Pacific
railroad said: All over Arizona are
hundreds of valleys that give almost cer
tain assurances of containing artesian
water. The soil is rich and capable of
producing every variety of grain, grass,
fruit and vegetables in the temperate or
seml-tropio zone. What has been done on
the bleak Mpjave plain can be done in
many places In this Territory, and the
day will yet come wheu these so-called
deserts will be made to. bloom and bios-
som, and command a good round prioe

the most important for the growth and
prosperity of Arizona, but there is every
reason to believe that Its solution will be

An lee Machine.
Two years ago, at this time, we eng
deavored to show through the columns of
this paper, tbe benefit,- luxury and con
venience that might have accrued to tbe
people of Yuma, if an ice manufacturing
machine was placed at the Penitentiary,
and the ioe sold here so that every family
could afford to have a supply at home
during the summer .months. The heal
during the summer is not particularly op
pressive, and, although tbe thermometer
may be above one hundred degrees in the
shade, it is dry, and we are not inconven
ienced by it whatever, and with tbe pre
valent cool nights, sleep is very refreshing
and pleasant. Ice can be, manufactured
cheaper in Yuma than in Los Angeles,
and can be sold bere at a big profit for
two cents per pound. We are still of the
opinion that an absolute need and
necessity in this community is cool water.
To obtain that it is necessary to have ice.
Let the Territorial Prison Commissioners
purchase a small ice machine. They have
the clear water in the Prison reservoir to
make ice with, the steam power in use on
the hill is ample to run an ice machine,
and as for labor, why, "there is thousands
of it" right at hand. Tbe co-t of manu-
factring ice is nominal, and the sale of it
would prove a source of revenue to the
Territory. Again, the unfortunates con.
fined in the prison could have cold water
to drink at all times. The sale of the ice
could be entrusted to some citizen at a
small commission. The Commissioners
should order the pu-chaee of an ice ma.
chine at once.
Spontaneous Combustion. Tbe fire

Thursday morning, which came very near
proving disastrous to Mr. Post's large
wood pile, is attributed to spontaneous

The Reason, Perhaps. Under the new
school law there will be no Territorial ap
portionments hereafter for school pur
poses. The school money required by each
countywillbaveto be raised by direct taxa
tion on the people, and per consequenoe
the school apportionment this year for
each school district in Yuma county will
be small. Wonder if this is not the reason
why there are no candidates for School
Trustees in District No 1!

The Blythe Estate.
Judge Rearden, of the Superior Court,
San Francisco, heard the petition of the
Public Administrator, P. A. Roach, on
Monday last, who asked a decree to sell
the property Delonging to tbe estate of
the late Thomas H. Blythe, situated in
Mexico. This property comprises 1,500,'
000 acres of land on the Colorado river,
just below the Arizona and California
line, and waa part of Blythe's great
scheme to colonize the Colorado valley
General Andrade, who is a Mexican citi
zen, was associated with Blythe in the eng
terprise, and as Blythe as an alien could
not own property in Mexico, the title was
vested in Andrade, who still holds it or
rather the concession from the Mexican
Government upon which it will ultimately
Issue, but who is anxious to have the
property disposed of. The grant was
made to Andrade and blythe for coloniza
tion purposes and upon condition that
they should settle a cettain number of
families on the land by January 1,1835,
the terms of settlement being that tbe
Government would present each family
with a bonus of $100 and the land com-
pany would give each family 100 acres of
the land. As no objection was mode
Judge Rearden signed the decree. This
property is known here as the Lerdo
Colony, and is about 65 miles from Yuma,
down the Colorado river.
A Big Strike.
From a private letter we learn that the
biggest strike ever made in Southern
California, occurred at the Cargo
Muchacho Mining District this week. It
was made by John Peterson and Charles
Jackson about four miles from Ogilby
Station, on the line of the Southern Pa
cine Railroad. To use the language of
the letter "Thvy have unearthed 400 feet
of a quartz ledge, from 18 to SO inches
wide, that assays from $100 to $1000 in
gold per ton." In addition to the above
our correspondent intorms us that they
hare also dug a well at the foot of the
mine and that they have struck good
living water sufficient to run a 10-starap
mill, which they intend to put up as soon
as they can clean up gold enough to build
it. For the present they will work the
rock with a Mexican arrastra. A few days
ago they pounded up about 400 pounds of
the ore and obtained $95 in gold with
which they laid in supplies to run them a
few weeks, or until they can make a
clean-up with tbe arrastra.
