The "Qraphio'8" Description of Our
Surroundings.
An Irumenso 'Wealth of Timber' nnd
Acrlculturnl Lands (! rowliig
and Prosperous Section.
Arizona is tho best abused because
tho least known of all our territories.
A hurried, unintelligent railroad jour
ney these vast areas, coiifirms'rathcr
than alters previous prejudices ami
steieotypcd misconception. None so
blind as those who havo ejes, but
neither sight nor understanding. A
New York or Illinois yard-stick is
brought along by the temporary
sojourner in a palace car; everything
ho sees or Imagines he sees from tho
windows of tho samo is subject to that
particular yard-stick. If tho country
refuses to submit to that especially im
ported measurement, and Insist on its
own terms, thcu there is nothing there.
That Is tho origin of "Tenderfoot." A
man must bo willing to both walk and
ride hero a hundred odd miles or so on
either sido of tho track, or listen care
fully to those who ha-c douo so. After
a while tho reasons for abandoning
"kodak" impressions of the present
and stupidly blundering notions of the
past will become quite apparent.
IJy way of a base for your recoil-
s rtictcu Arizona as it will rise over
your Arizona of misty ignorance, please
put it down as It were that this politi
cal subdivision of our mutual uncle's
estate comprises a Pennsylvania and a
New Yoik, and about three or more of
the good old New England states
thrown into tho bargain. It takes timo
to get nrouud and become acquainted,
so we will confine ourselves to Flagstaff
and vicinity for the time being.
" Flagstaff," so the local tradition
has it, becamo the camping-ground
qtiito a number of years ago of a
United States cavalry corps. The
Fourth of July was at hand, and tho
commanding officers naturally desired
to do proper homage to tho day by
hoisting the national colors. Nothing
was as suitable as one of these straight
limbed, towering pines, in which
tho locality abounds. The steadiest
"climber" tvith an ax and saw was
brought into requisition. The statlict
pine monarch was stripped, anil up
weut the Star Spangled lianner, prob
ably tho loftiest ensign afloat that day
in tlio whole dominion of Uncle Sam,
for it swung jto"tho breeze at some
sevcu thousand flv hundred feet eleva
tion. Ever since the place has been
"Flagstaff." The peculiar ilagftall
has, unfortunately, succumbed to the
stress of old ago or weather, but hav
ing made such a good beginning in
patriotism, while this special corner
was about "out of the world," it is not
unlikely that the active citizens of this
beautiful plateau will scud a courier
clear to the summit of their mighty
range seven thousand feet aboe them,
and fourteen thousand feet nbovo sea
level, and plant tho Stars and Stripes
there on the first Fourth of July that
succeeds tho prospective statehood, to
which every cjtizen here looks eagerly
forward.
Among tho earliest disillusions is tlio
elaborate geographical fiction about a
"timbcrless aud 3vatcrlcss Waste"
known as the " Arid Zono " reputed to
bo tho origin of Aiizoua. Wo 3ake up
in the morning at the merry whistle of
a locomotive, hauling twenty odd cars
of splendid saw logs. " Where did you
get hold of these fine logs out hero ?"
inquires the.Eastcru scribe of tho con
ductor in charge. "An hour and a
halt's ride to the south of us." " Any
more of it?" "Yes, I guess so I" is
tho laconic answer. "How much?"
" Oh, a couple of million acres or so !"
Nothing small about this coiiiitiy. We
find on Inquiry thai our train manager
is practically corrcqtj thai tho road over
which ho is hauling theso choice logs is
tho Central Arizona. J Tho aim of this
company is to connect the southern half
of tho Territory with the northern. It3
first sovonty miles duo south will be oc
cupied fully in the lumbering business,
to say nothing of auy through traffic
which 3vill eventually develop. Follow
ing the log train a short distance out
of tho Flagstaff station 3vc find our
selves In the midst of a sccno that
would do credjt to a Wisconsin or
Michigan "lumber camp" a large,
finely equipped steam sawmill with
logs aud lumber piles evorytvherc.'
Tho commercially strategic position of
this magnificent body of timber may bo
better understood wheu it h, stated
that it occupies a station midway be
tween San Francisco in tho north aud
El Paso in the south. It supplies
Juinber yards in Los Angeles, and
furnished millions of ties to the Mexi
can Central system when that road was
under const ruction to lhq City of
Me.lco. The consumption of'lumber
within tlio Territorial limits referred
to is estimated at eighty million feet.
Of this amount tho Arizona Lum
ber company anticipates being able
to supply about . otio half, or
forty million feet. Tho concern em
ploys as many hs COO men, and rarely
less than 300. Tho enterprise naturally
ranks with tho most conspicuous and
substantial business projects of the
cntiro region south of the Stato of
Colorado.
h Not satisfied 3ith suimhinir tho
Flagstaff country with the largest,
most accessible and commercially inot
advantageously located timber region
in the whole Southwest, Mother Nature
also endowed tho plateau with n build
ing stone, so choice in texture and
harmonious in color as to practically
leave her without a rival between
Kansas City and San Francisco. What
it means can more readily be under
stood by the simple statement that
Denver is finishing off her new palatial
hotel with this stone, while Los Angeles
has recently completed a costly court
house of the same material. The stone
known as Flagstaff red saudstouc is so
soft while in the quarry as to admit of
being sawed, while on exposuro to tho
air it immediately hardens, and be
comes one of the most extraordinarily
haudsomo and valuable building
materials In existence. Colorado, New
Mexico and California aro certainly
abundantly supplied with building
stone, but when they want something
handsome as well as substantial they
dip their colors and send to Flagstaff.
Flagstaff will bo a city of fine pro
portions, the most important com
mercial center between Albuquerque
and Los Angeles. Tho causes that
lead to this arc many and perfectly
transparent. To begin with, her cli
mate and soil invite tho cattlo grower
and tho sheep herder as few other
localities between El Paso, Texas, and
the Shasta region in Northern Cali
fornia. Without irrigation she can
produce, and does now produce, tho
choicest potatoes, the finest oats and
barley, and In all probability ns well
will raise as lino wheat as tho Long
mont Valley and Greely In Colorado.
All these crops can bo disposed of in
valuable local markets; consequently
the grower obtains rates far in advance
of any market where the producer
competes with the world at large. The
town is tho rallying puiut for the
stockmen, prospectors, miners, etc,
for a hundred miles !u all directions.
Flagstaff is tho natural central point
of a vast legion not only rich in timber
and the choicest of grazing lands, but
also as inviting to the real hard work
ing hoinc-seeker as any now in Uuelo
Sam's possession. A hundred thousand
settlers could be accommodated within
less than fifty miles of Flagstaff aud
not be a bit crowded, but oven that
assertion docs not tell all there is to bo
said about this cotiutiy. It would re
quiro volumes to do it justice.
The industrial and agricultural value
of this country is. of course, what the
intending' settler or investor first de
sires to know about, aud It is those
classes the Graphic primarily desires to
serve. JUicso interests aim ample to
create here a permanent aud growing
community on tho most substantial
basis. But tho wiltcr who shall lea,e
Flagstaff with theso impressions as his
solo opinion would do this region grave
injustice, and be indictable for some
thing more than mero shortsightedness.
Tho luturc will know Flagstaff chielly
as tho world-famous gateway to the
greatest natural marvels that may be
found In an' portion of tho globe.
Uefercnco is made to tho Grand Cany
ons of the Colorado river. Some of our
most conspicuous writers, such as
Charles Nordhoff nnd Charles Dudley
Warner, aud a few great scientists,
headed by Major J. W. Powell, have
looked down into that wonderful abyss,
huiidieds of miles long aud a mile
deep. It has been written about, but
no one has yet attempted to describe it.
It is to grand scenery in general all
and more than Niagara is 'to water
falls and the Alps mid the Himalayas to
mountains. The power of human
language, the insight of the scientist,
and the inspiration of tho artist, all fail
in any attempt to deal( with this olio
uiilquo consummate master-work of
the Almighty. But ouo condition has
been lacking to draw here mutually
tens of thousands of visitors, and that
is a short lino of railway, some soventy
miles long. All the requisite conditions
for such a project now appear to coin
bino to favor the early completion of
nn enterprise to long deferred. If tho
capitalists who build roads could bo
gotten together and takea trip up hero
by themselves, say 'half a dozen of
them, they would certainly marvel why
such an opportunity has been permitted
to go a-begging for all theso years.
The money needed would bo subscribed
as soon as the rcquisito documents were
presented, and the road immediately
constructed. Now, of all times, ap
pears to be tho proper one, in viow of
tho approaching World's Fair in
Chicago. There is a continuous profi
table business and a, few immediate
foi tunes to bo had by those who first
cover the field the only one on the
visible globe. This one gieat factor
will do as much for Flagstaff as the
Rigi ever did for Lucerne. The road
will follow a charming pine forest
plateau, or an easily penetrable moun
tain park, as the region would be called
In Colorado, located on the eastern base
of the San Francisco range, due north.
Theso mountain 3-alleys, at the base
of tho mighty range, are duplicated at
various elevations in the heart of the
mountains themselves. The slopes
present a somewhat forbidding ap
pearanco from Flagstaff by their
seemingly bare, percipitous, lava
covered sides. But no surface
could pro-c to be moro deceptive.
They abound in choice springs with
abundant pasturage, anil in addition
furnish the residents with "one of the
most imposing and ceaselessly chang
ing mountain panoramas on the con
tinent. The ranges iu question furnish all
the attractions required for a truly
great summer resort, and they w ill be
come the center of ono of the most
famous in the entire West, just as soon
as their attractions arc known. They
will be to tlio great Southwest all and
more than what the Adironacks arc to
tho East. The dwellers of the western
half of Texas, the lower Rio Graudo
valley, tho whole of semi-tropical
southern Arizona and southern Cali
fornia as well will come hero for three
or four mouths every year to seek a
tonic in fragrant spruce and pine forest,
aud to gather in the glory of snou
crowned mountains, nowhere else to
be had iu such profusion in all the
Southwestern empire. It is true that
these paits of the United States arc
not as yet densely settled, but they are
very certain to become so. In the
meanwhile the populations arc steadily
growing, nnd the fame of tho great
range will constantly spread. The
same throngs that now seek the Pike's
Peak regions will be here, just as soon
as they know about it, and arc assured
that they can be taken care of.
Among the many and singularly in
teresting objects worthy of visiting in
tho locality arc tho famous, cliff dwell
ings. They are only eight miles dis
tant, over a road which will please one
with the most delightful glimpses (new
at every turn) of the eastern slopes ol
tho San Francisco mountains. The
road lies through a most picturesque
park, and leads directly up to the
brink of a minor but very impressive
installment of the Grand Canyons,
seventy miles to the northward, There
is no water just now iu the narrow
bottom that twists in and out like a
huge suakc one thousand feet below us
and fifteen miles iu length. But as one
stands on tho brink of the mighty
chasm, one obtains a never forgotten
object lesson of the power of water.
While volcanic forces undoubtedly first
created the strange opening a thousand
feet wide at the top in the very heart
of tho substrata, it is the water acting
on corrosive rock that lias left behind
it th6 carved surfaces, tho rouuded
promontories, the terraces aud slielf
liko extensions, which enabled the cliff
dwellers to excavate their homes here,
tho floor of one forming the roof of the
dweller just below.
Who aud what these remarkable
dwellers were wo must leave for the
scientists to decide. That they were
hero in great numbers is perfectly evi
dent. Pottery and other rcmnauts
clearly indicate tho fact to say' noth
ing of tho distinct Imger-imprcss left
iu several places iu the rude plastering
with whicli the 3valls arc yet covered.
These walls form the outer enclosure
of what would otherwise have simply
been a cave. They clearly disclose
some rudimentary but well learned les
sons of architectural proportions.
Whether or not, like the pyramids,
" forty centuries " looks down on tho
beholder of these very ancient tlw cll-
ings, no ouo can tell; but this is certain,
every traveler will bo greatly repaid
for tho littlo effort icquircd to descend
Into tho canyon and out on the shelves
of rock on which these ancient habita
tions are located.

X.AXI) CASK UIXISIOX
tVhlclfMay EUcct n Number of Locc
catlons Iu Northern Arizona.
Iu June, 1S90, five coutc5t ea-.es
were decided in the Prcscott land ofllco
in which the government was plaintiff
aud Henry Huning of Apache county.
ns transferee of fit o pre-emption cash
entries, was defendaut. Claimants to
the laud embraced in tlio several entries
submitted their final proof at the Prcs
cott land office and it was accepted by
tho local officers and final eeitificates
issued to claimants. Tho proofs were
submitted and certificates issued in 1883.
A few years afterwards tho govern
ment, through its special agent, insti
tuted proceedings to set aside the
entries on the grounds of fraud, tho
cases being heard aud decided iu tlio
local land ollice, as stated, in June,
1800. The position taken b Mr. Hun
ing was. that after final certificate was
issued no action could be taken suc
cessfully looking to the cancellation of
tho cut i ie. The decision in Ihe laud
oflicc at Prcscott was adverse to Mr.
Httdiug, when he appealed the cases to
the commissioner of the general land
office. They were exhaustively rev low
ed by that officer and a decision
rendered affirming that of the officers
of the Present tt laud oflicc. Defeudaut's
uttorneys, however, were still not satis
fied w itli the adverse of the law propo
sition laid down by them, and took an
appeal to the Honorable Secretary of
the Interior. The cases have just been
reached by that officer, and a press
telegram from Washington, dated Feb.
27th, gives the result of the review by
him of the cases, in which he affirms
the former decisions in the cases: Tho
telagram says : Assistant Secretary
Chandler to-day made an important
ruling to the effect that after the final
certificate has been issued it is not too
late to set aside a land entry for fraud.
It is elearl the duty of the Secretary
of the Interior to do so. He says: The
