THE FUTURE. OF PHCEN1X.
There can no lunger bo any doubt as
to tho future development of tho city of
I'hmnix. That question is as firmly
settled as it will bo five years hence
when blocks seven and eight stories
high pierco tho azure blue of tho balmy
Within the last sixty dnys a quarter
of a million dollars worth of city real
estate has changed hands at advanced
figures. The town Is full of conserva
tive business men eager to invest in
real estate and embark in busines.4 pur
suits. Within the last Fix months at
least n million dollars of capital has
found its way into Phoenix, and tho
representatives of not less than a mill
ion moro aro now on the ground ready
to bring their money here at once.
A number of the most prominent
business corners, not onlyon Washing
ton but on Adams street, have been
sold within a few weeks and not less
than $300,00j worth of buildings are
now in course of erection or ready to
begin immediately. And yet there is
no boom. This is n steady, quiet
growth, the result of a healthy demand
for every building now being erected.
Plucnix is the natural supply point
for the entire southwest, and the rail
roads are not slow in discovering this
tact. Tho Santa Fe will be in Phoenix
during the present year, the Southern
Pacific will come and the Hock Island
and Denver & Rio Grande are both
headed this way.
Two electric lines of street railway
are being constructed, etone sidewalks
are being laid on the principal streets,
and all of the advantages of a, metro
politan city will soon be enjoyed.
It is predicted by people acquainted
with the history and growth of Denver
and Los Angeles tha in five years Phoe
nix will bo larger than either. Aud
why not? We havo more advantages
than both of those cities combined.
Without question now is the timo to
invest in Phwuix. The city is attract
ing tho attention of the whole country,
and during tho year thousands of peo
ple and millions of dollars will come
into Phoanix, tho peerless princess of
the great Salt Hiver valley.
THE GAZETTE'S INCONSISTENCY.
While the Gazette is usually incon
sistent and incoherent in its state
ments, yet yesterday morning's issue ap
peared to be more so than when the
editor sticks to ids shears instead of his
The Gazette in its efforts to manage
both tho Republican and Democratic
parties runs great danger of finding it
self in the lamentable condition of the
renowned Peter Kitchen, and we ad
vise it to get on one side or the other of
the political fenco and stay tliero. It
requires a good deal bigger man than
any person connected with tho Gazette
to successfully run even one party at
least unless he gives it his undivided
attention and we hope our brethren of
tho Gazette will take this suggestion in
the same spirit in which it is written,
that of the kindliest friendship.
When tho editor of tho Gazette first
graped his Fabcr night before last, he
seemed to feel that the whole future of
the Republican party devolved upon
his shoulders, ond proceeded to write
tho following paragraph :
There aro more narrow-minded, Jea'ous Re
publicans in Fhctnlx.that In any other section
In tho American union. This Is one reaion
why the Republican party never succejds, tho
factof tho nutter ii th y urn not entitled to
Now tho above is innocent enough
and if it had stopped there possibly n
few deluded people might have been
impressed with tho greatness and
wisdom of the sage who presides over
tho pasto pDt of our morning con
temporary. lint ho failed to comprehend this fact
and that is the weak point which we
desiro to call to hla attention. After
giving the Republicans tho above ad
vice it occurred to him that as an al
leged Democratic paper, the Gazette
ought to give that party a little warning
also, and this is the way ho docs it:
Judga Ilarnes says "Dunbar doesn't run tho
Deinocratio party of Arizona and ho will find
this out some time." We want to tell tho
Judge that we lay no claim to this honor, but
we want to Impress upon tho gemloman from
Plm that wo will ree that ho doesn't run It.
Tho Oazetio has always advocated Democratic
success aud always wlil. Will tho gentleman
from lima take the stand ami make a like as
sertion? Wo want Mr. Names to understand
now and forever that ho cannot bom tl o De
mocracy of Arizona. Sensible men usually
known here and when to call a halt, and we take
this opportunity to say that no political mar
plot can dictate the policy of the Arizona De
mocracy. liiit how differently tho two para
graphs are worded. In the first political
jealousy is denounced; in the second
the wholo kettle is kicked over and
jealousy runs out led hot all over the
Tho fact is, tliero is no Republican
jealousy that any Republican has heard
of and consequently there was no oc
casion for the first paragraph j but os to
the last there does appear to be con
siderable jealousy on tho part of the
Gazette towards u very large and respect
able Democratic following in the ter
ritory, and if the editor of that paper
fails to pull the mote out of his own eye
ho is liable to get stepped under foot.
Tiik Rei'uiu.ican is sorry that Judge
Barnes has angered tho only newspa'per
in the world that runs all political par
ties, but so long as he maintains the
respect of the Democrats we do not ao
prehend that he will 6iitTer.
The Gazelle should toko some of its
own advice, else, we repeat, its ex
perience may bo similar to that of .Mr.
Kitchen, the distinguished sojourner in
Sonora, eon-ell known to the people of
THE KEELEY CURE.
Not much has been said by the news
papers lately about the Keeley cure.
Tlie novelty having worn off, the fam
ous asylum for inebriates and its nu
merous branches have ceased to inter
est the reporters because the subject
has grown to be nn old ono to news
paper readers. Nevertheless, observa
tion of the net results of what has been
called "the gold cure" must continue to
be of the utmost importance. Henry
Wood has just written an interesting
paper on tho subject. He announces
unequivocally his faith in the ellicacy
of the Keeley cure, but in an extended
discussion of the subject presents some
views, not altogether new, but which
are nevertheless interesting. Mr. Wood
Scores and hundreds of educated men of
character and veracity who In the past have
fallen Into slavery to the appetlto for stlmul
ents, give their unequivocal testimony as to
thilr complete emancipation. The palieuts
include representatives from all classes.
Many who for years had bravely battled In
vain with their Insatiable and Intangible foe,
come forth, after a few wee's' treatment, fren
and reliant, with all craving for stimulants
eradicated. Men and women, naturally noble,
gifted and generous, who have been reduced to
moral and physical wreeks by the burning
passion, havo their fetters broken and aro re
stored to themselves, their friends and society.
In the presenco of thousands of liv
ing testimonials to the ellicacy of the
Keeley cure, Mr. Wood thinks that the
question of its success is no longer
It is estimated that not less than
100,000 persons, heretofore 'more or less
addicted to the excessive use of intoxi
cants and opium in its various forms,
have been successfully treated at the
various inebriate sanitariums where
the Keeley euro is administered. This
may be an exaggeration, but if half
this number hao beon enabled by re
tort to tho treatment to cast off the
shackles iinpoeed by the appetite for
strong drink and narcotic's tbo author of
their regeneration must rank as a ruib
lic benefactor. Tiik Kwuiilican un
hesitatingly lends its endorsement to
what it believes to be a blessing to
mankind. II the Keeley cure has ex
ercised even a helpful influence in cor
recting the numerous evils imposed
upon society by drunkenness, nil good
men should be thankful tor even a
Ii ttlo aid in a work that has heretofore
been attended by small success.
NOT A TRUE FRIEND.
The Gazette in its recent issues clearly
proves that its friendship for the terri
tory is not of the kind that means
statehood and prosperity.
It attacks every measure for the good
of the peoplo when that measuro docs
not emanate trom its coterie ot pros
pective and would-be pap suckers.
Neither are Mark Smith's chances for
senator improved by the attitudo of the
Gazette in its opposition to the will of
the neople unon a qiifxtinn of on much
importance as statehood, for he will be
charged witli influencing its columns.
Tho Gazette worked hard for Mark
Smith during tho campaign and the
friendship of its editor and that quon
dam statesman is a matter of public
record, theiefore it must bo that Mark
sanctions the course of the Gazette in
its opposition to tho development of
tho territory and immediate statehood.
Rut as Republicans, from a party
standpoint, we like to seo it. It shows
tho peoplo tho real attitude of certain
would-be Democratic bosses, who, how
ever, luve not sufficient influence,
luckily, to retard the growth of the
territory, and they show their hand at
a most opportupo time.
We believe, however, that it is neces
sary to secure all the support possiblo
for etateiiood, aid we call upon tho peo
ple, irrespective of party, to join in the
work. Rut the Democratic party is
certainly handicapped when its organ
sets itself up as an obstructionist, and
the party must ba responsible for its ut
terances, for one of tho members of the
Territorial Democratic Central Com
mittee is a large owner in ihe Gazette and
active member of the committee; and
the paper is presumably acting
under the instructions of the Central
It therefore becomes the duty of
Chairman Parker to state whether or
not the Gazette in it role as nn obstruc
tionist and kicker is voicing the senti
ment of the party. Further silence
from the chairman aiid.secretury of the
Democratic committee on this subject
will bo taken as evidence that the com
mittee has changed il" mind and that
the Gazette is voicing its sentiment in
its recent editorials repudiating tho ac
tion of the Democratic committee lately
taken towards statehood.
The Democratic party is now making
a recoid that it must soon go before the
The Ciiicago Tribune observes that
tho vote of Nevada fell off from 10,031
in 187G to 10,605 in 1602, and ndds:
It Is singular that tho people should submit
as patiently at tl cy do to such an absurd an
omaly as that Illinois, with clghty-cven times
tho population of Nevada, snould have only
eight times as many presidential votes. The
matter is one which congrets can ami should
intend to by annexing the Territory of Utah,
with JOS.OOO people, to Keradt, with l,s 1.5.000,
thus making a stato with a rcsicctablo popu
lation. The matter of annexation we presume
would have to bo submitted to the state
itself ; liut Nevada should not object to
it. It is not fair that Illinois with 87
times the population of Nevada should
have but 8 times as many votes in the
The absurd anomaly of which the
Tribune complains is even more striking
when we come to consider that little
Nevada with her 10,005 votes has an
equal representation in the United
States Senate with New York with its
i 1,500,000 votes.
Tliero are some other inequalities of
this kind in our electoral system which
ought to be corrected, but are not likely
to be under a Democratic and Solid
South administration. A large percent
age of tho people of Mississippi nnd
other southern states are disfranchised,
but this is not permitted to make any
dillerence in the congressional repre
sentation of these states. If we are to
remedy matters with reference to the
borough state of Nevada we Bhould c.iBt
about nnd Bee what can bo done in the
samo direction down south where tho
emergency is even more urgent.
A NEW CHARTER.
The defeat of the charter lately sub
mitted to ttje people by an overwhelm
ing vote must not be taken as an in
dication that the people are opposed to
to a measure of this kind.
Wo need a new charter and we want
to take in the additions, and it was
simply the bungling manner in which
tho charter was framed together with
the autocratic powers which it con
veyed that caused its ignominious de
feat. Tho legislature will soon assemble
and a charter should bo framed and
adopted at a public meeting of the citi
zens to be passed by the legislature as
soon as that body is ready for business.
Tub Republican suggests that steps
be taken immediately with that end in
view. Phoenix is no longer a village
and a charter adapted to her needs
should be at once adopted.
The thorough measures being adopted
by the War Department to expel tho
Mexican revolutionists from federal soil
and to guard the Texan frontier against
further invasion by these belligerents
show that the administration does not
propose to allow United States territory
to be made a base of operations for a
band of conspirators against a country
with which' our own enjoys peaceful
relations. The campaign against these
sanguinary adventurers should be brief,
vigorous nnd pOWiIvp. AI1p from the
obligations imposed upon the United
States to observe tho international
right of Mexico, it is of paramount im
portance for this coutitry to continue to
cultivate only tho friendliest relations
with our southern neighbor.
Fkw.fiklps of enterprise have proven
as attractive of late as the building of
electric street railroads and the con
version of horse lines into railways op
erated by electricity. At the beginning
of 1802 there were only 335 electric
street railroads in tho United States,
whereas there aro now 510. Tne in
crease of 132 is a gain of about 3-1 per
tent, a. most extraordinary rate of
growth.; The time seems not fur dis
tant when nearly all of the street rail
roads In the country, except a com
paratively small number of big cable
lines will be operated by electric power,
and the day of the street car horse is
fast drawing to a clocu.
