A Germantown Citizen Wrjtos Inter
estingly of His Trip to the
Correspondence of the Bulletin.
On TuesdajvMay iilst, a party of Kentuckiaus
Jcft Clnclunnti for I'hocnlx, Arizona. They
travelled by way pf the Dig Four to Chicago and
thenco by the Atchison, Topckn. and Santc Fee
toad to Ash Fork, Arizona, where they changed
to the new Hun til Foe, l'rcscott nud Phoedlx,
roa 1 and reached Phoenix Saturday night, May
tilth, making In nil a distance of 2,175 miles.
It has already been announced In the local
.papers that the purpose of this trip was to in
vestigate the agricultural and fruit lands pro
posed to bo in tented bv the lUo Verde Canai
Co., now in course of construction, and it was to
the writer a visit of pleasure and health as well.
1 am pleased to say that I am having a good
time and that my health has been greatly im
proved. I left home with a stubborn oaso of
the grippe, but the genial olimatc ol the Salt
River valley has entirely relieved mo from the
eilects of that treacherous malady. Tor the
Ijencilt of those of ray friends who are sportively
inclined, I must tell them that we had a rare lot
of fun shooting prairie-dogs nud jack-rabbits
fronj tne train. As we were passing through
the prairlo dog settlements of Colorado the temp
tation to kuock over a few of them was so strong
that ucgot our guns and prepared for action.
Shooting from the trains as a rule is prohibited,
and the conductor seemed to think we could
not hit the little fellows from a train going lift)
miles an honr, bufwtth n little practice we soon
showed him a trick which surprised bim. We
tumbled tfiem over in great shape. The first
ja-jk-rabbit I ever sw was sitting on a prairie
dog mound. At first sight I thought it was a
young mule, but whon my friend Hudson
Hhoutcd "shoot! sh6ot! that's a jack-rabbit," I
fired away nud le,t Jilrn have it between the eyes.
A curious sight which we met in this connection
-was a largo hawk which had built 'its nest in a
telegraph pole. I am not going to tell you any
fish stories, I had just Wiled a hawk ou the
wing a short time previously, but when this
unusual sight jnot my -view I got excited and
missed it, but 1 am going to lay for it on my
In compliance with my promise to give a
short discriptlon of this part of Uncle Sam's
domain, and believing that many of our Eastern
friends, like your humble correspondent, have
had but n 'faint conception of Arizona, its re
sources and possibilities, the following is con
tributed. Arizona is about 3S0 miles from north
to Mjutb and 320 miles from cast to west, em
bracing about 113,000 sqnaro miles, la altitude
it ranges from below sea level on the south
to 13,000 fectaboveon thonorth. Itis the newest,
freshest ami most interesting country I have
ever visitor. There is probably no other State
or Territory which has such a variety of scenery,
fauna and -climate Id the south central portion
grow all ot the semi-tropical plants, while in
the northern partsrthe mountains are perpetually
clad in snow. Within a distance of 250 miles
from north to south cau be found the most de
lightful summer aud winter climates. Phoenix
on the south with an elevation of 1C50 feet is
probably the best all-the-ycar-rouud climate in
the United States, while Flagstaff on tie north
with an, elevation of 7,000 feet is destined to bo a
popular sumraor (resort. """"
The celebrated hot springs of Arizona rival
tlnc of Arkansas. The ruins of the prehistoric
agei are found In many parts of the Territory,
and hero also arc ifouud the ruins of the cave
and clin-dwellers, those diminutive people who
jnide their homes In the ellll's of the mountains
ome of which overhang deep canons thousands
of feet below. Space forbids any suitable de
scription, but we cannot forego mentioning the
Grand Canon of Ue Colorado. Here tower vast
mountains for many miles with their perpen
dicular walls reaching thousands of feet heaven
ward, In some placet, entirely obscuring the sun,
and from the bottom of this immense gorge can
be seen the stars of heaven nearly os dlstiuct as
at wight. Aud here only can be seen the .great
petrified Jorests which have excited thecurloMty
of tho world.
But what of I'hocnlx aud the Salt River Valley
you would like to know. '
I'hocnlx, the metropolis of the territory, the
cunltal of Arizona and the county seat of Mari
ooan.Is situated near the center of the count.
It is n thriving little city of some eight thousand
inhabitants. It sprang up out of the desert a
few years ago, has sixty new buildings now In
eourse of construction and is growing rapidly.
It has competiug lines of railways, with two pro
p iscd new roads. It has water works, a fire, de-
irtment, electric lights, electric street railways,
six banks, sir large hotels, with a newS'0,000
hotel now in courso of construction, main largo
stores aud massive business blocks which present
i genulno city-like appearance. There arc two
ice manufacturing plants, two large flouring
mills and many other manufacturing industries
Most of tho churches are represented here.
There ore three largo school buildings. Tho
fi -hools maintain a high standardTnoue but first
class teachers being admitted, .and tho school
system of tho territory is en ual to any in tho Uni
The population of I'hocnlx is mostly Eastern,
representing Eastern enterprise, stability and re
finement. There aroKentucklans here also, anil
they entertain as Kentuckians only know hoV
to do. There is also n slight sprinkling of
Chinese, Japanese, Mexicans, Spanlards.lDaues,
Swedes, Germans, Frcnoh, Negroes and Indlaus,
nud we must not forget to mention the Irrcprcs-
With this kind of a mixed population oue would
naturally supposo that this Is "tho wild and
wooly west" which' wo read about, bt there is
probably no place in the United States where
life Is held more sacred and where crimes arc less
frequent, As a raattor of fact, there is only ono
policeman in I'hocnlx, (the City Marshal), and I
can not toll you what manner of man he is. 1
heve never been able to see him.
In my next 1 will tell tho readers of tho Bul
letin -something about tho wonderful Salt River
Valley. j. A. Walton,

THAT BANK TAX DI0ISION.
The Result of the Ruling as Some
People Aro Figuring
The Frankfort Capital has this inter
esting statement concerning the decision
of the Court of Appeals in the bank-tax
Some of those who have been figuring on the
result of the reoent Court of Appeals decision
with regard to the bank taxes have suggested
that the decision will result not onlyin pre
venting an increase of the number of banks in
this State, but lessening tho number within the
next ten years. They say that new bauks will
not be organized, because they would not bo
exempt from local taxation, the biggest taxa
tion' of all, and would therefore be too much
handicapped to successfully compete with those
old banks that were chartered far enough bark
to come under the provisions of the exempting
act that has been declared a contract. Then
again, a number of banks have been chartered
since the passage of the Hewitt (contract) act.
The question Is, will they not have to pay the
big local tax rate wherever they are located, and
will not, at least somo of them, be swamped by
the unequal burden they will have to assume In
their competition with the older institutions
that do not have to piy this big local taxation
and, therefore, are not compelled to earn so
great an income ? Again, tho charters of many
banks expire sooner than those of other banks,
and when this expiration comes will not they
have to pay this big and ' ruinous ' taxation be
fore their neighbors with charters that do not
expire so soon?

MOLASSES new crop, gallon , So QfiO
The average temperature of tho past
week varied but slightly from the nor
mal. The amount of "rainfall for the
entire State was probably slightly in
excess of the normal, but it was not
distributed uniformly. Generally speak
ing, the central and eastern counties re
ceived considerably more than other
sections, tho extreme western counties
reporting tho smallest amounts as a rule.
It is estimated that more than three
fourths of the area of the State received
rain during the week of sufficient
amount to materially assist all growing
crops, ilie average tone of reports re
ceived from correspondents this week is
more cheerful, and indicates an improv
ing condition of agricultural interests.
The harvesting of wheat is nearly
completed in all but the central and
eastern counties, and threshing has com
menced in tho western sections this
week and will bo in full progress in the
central part of the State within the
cour6H of the next five days. Reports
regarding the amount and quality of the
crop are so conflicting that it ia "difficult
to form an average estimate of it. Many
correspondents state that the weather
conditions of the season were not favor
able for the production of a full crop,
and a eood proportion of them report
less than an average yield. In several
of the central counties the crop is re
ported to bo less than half the average.
Generally speaking, the yield is better in
the western and southwestern counties
than in other portions of the State.
Oats have been greatly improved by
the rains of the past two weeks and the
outlook for a good crop is much better
now than was anticipated somo time
back. In a few places the grain has
ueen damaged to somo extent by heavy,
local showers. In some few sections
cutting has begun and a good yield is
Reports from all sections of the State
indicate that the condition of corn is the
most promising for several years, and
the present prospect is for a very large
yield. Tho weather conditions of tho
past month have been peculiarly favor
able to its growth and recovery ffom the
drawbacks to which it was subjected from
frost and worms earlier in the season.
The crop is unusually free of weeds and
grasses, the wealjyr conditions having
been such as to permit of its easy culti
vation. It is still slightly behind its
average condition at this season, 'but
with a continuance of favorable weather
for the next ten clays, it will have at
tained its usual stage" of growth.
Early planted tobacco is generally do
intr well, but that nortion of the crorj re
cently transplanted is suffering for rain
in many localities, especially that upon
high ground. The majority of corre
spondents report the outlook from fair to
good, and the general condition of the
crop appears to be better in tho central
districts than m other parts of tho State.
Complaints are most numerous from
correspondents in the extreme northern
Though pastures and meadows were
improved by the recent rains, their pres
ent condition is still much below the
average. Correspondents reporting rela
tive to the prospective yield of hav, are
almost unanimous in the opinion that it
win De very snort, borne has already
been cut and in many instances only
half a crop was harvested. Clover has
been cut and the yield reported to be
fair. Pasture grasses aio very short,
especially in the hilly districts.
Garden crops are still late, but are
slowly recovering their normal condition.
Vegetables of all kinds will be plentiful,
especially potatoes, which arb generally
reported to be in excellent condition.
Early green corn will bo harvested during
tho coming week. Sweet potatoes are
reported to be poor, as a rule. Some
planting of late Irish potatoes was done
during the week.
Small fruits are yielding fairly well,
and apples promise a good rrop in most
localities. Peaches are not very promis
ing in most sections.
Castorla is Dr. Samuel Pitcher's prescription for Infants
and Children. It contains neither Opium, MorpMno nor
other Narcotic substance. It is a harmless substitute
for Paregoric, Drops, Soothing Syrups, and Castor Oil.
It is Pleasant. Its guarantee is tliirty years use by
Millions of Mothers. Castorla destroys Worms and allays
feverishness. Castoria prevents vomiting Sour Curd,
cures Diarrhoea and Wind Colic. Castoria relieves
teething troubles, cures constipation and flatulency.
Castoria assimilates tho food, regulates tho stomach
and bowels, giving healthy and natural sleep. Cas
toria is tho Children's Panacea the Mother's Friend.
"Castorla Is on excellent medicine for chil
dren. Mothers have repeatedly told ine of its
good effect upon their children."
Dr. G. C. Osgood,
" Castorla Is the best remedy for children of
which I am acquainted. I hope the day Is not
far distant when mothers will consider the
real interest of their children, and use Castorla
instead of the various quack nostrums which
are destroying their loved ones, by forcing
opium, morphine, soothing syrup and other
hurtful agents down their throats, thereby
sending them to premature graves."
" Castoria Is so well adapted to children that
I recommend It as superior to any prescription
known to me."
H. A. ARcrmH, M. V.,
m So. Oxford St., Brooklyn, N. Y.
" Our physicians in the children's depart
ment have spoken highly of their experi
ence la their outside practice with Castoria,
and although we only have among our
medical supplies what Is known as regular
products, yet we are free to confess that the
merits of Castoria has won us to look with
favor upon It."
