the past year nearly 200 new phones

more are expected to be placed in the

Then comes the testimony from the
postofflee. Postmaster Smith reports
a very marked increase in the busi-
ness of the office during the past year
aud every mouth adds to the volume.
Official reports show a greater per
ceutage of gain in the Prescott post
office than any other postotflce of
any size in the territory.
An inquiry into the amount of bus
iness beiug transacted by the railroad
company brought forth the informa
tion that business was never better,
and tbat the company is constantly
adding to their force of men and
rolling stock in order to handle the
business. One of the employes of the
road, when asked regarding the vol

which work will soon be commenced.
Also the maguificieut new 340,000

to no school building of its size in

be mentioned that only a few days i
