WATER WOHKS MONUS SALE.
No Further Question as to Flagstaff's
Telegrams received from Mr. A. T.
Cornish, who Is now in St. Louis nego
tiating for the sale of the bonds issued
by tlio town for the purpose of putting
inasjstomof water woiks, Indicate
that the deal is practically closed ou
terms that will bo acceptable to the
Council. So far as can bo learned, no
difficulty whatever has been experi
enced in maklug tho sale. Indeed,
there is no reason whatever why there
should be. The bonds are strictly gilt
edge, and no safer or more conservative
investment is offered on any market.
It is a pronounced tributo to the credit
and standing of the town that they
bavo found so ready a sale, but noth
ing moro than was to bo expected.
Flagstaff has earned tho reputation of
meeting her obligations (irmly, prompt
ly aud honorably, and this has stood
her in good stead in tho present in
stance. Bully! Now let tho Council secure
tho best possible bid for tho constt ac
tion, and wo'll celebiato tho Fourth as
wo novcr did before.

The establishment of a water works
8) stem in Flagstaff, means tho location
of a plant to prescrvo railroad ties.
A flowering mill would bo another
appendage and then our ranchers
would at once engago in raising wheat,
and many dollars sent abroad for flour
would bo left at home. A good wool
scouring establishment most likely
would bo located here, and a smelter
would do a thrivingbiisiness. A great
many other enteipiises might follow
if the town is supplied with an abund
mien of water. No need of tho city
is greater than this one, and no doubt
iu less than three months Flagstaff
can lay claim to as fine a system of
water works as can ho found in Ari
zina. All hail to the day when this
will bo done.
