The Journal-Miner goes after Phoe

OUIt MININO OUTLOOK.
Flagstaff has mining resources.
Do not overlook tho fact. But the
community can hardly be well versed
In mining alone. Hence tho develop
ment of miuing interests naturally will
be slow, and intermittent unless a sub
stantial strike is made. However,
the progress in this lino may be
though, thoso best qualified to form a
correct opinion are justified in expect
ing that tho influence of this industry
in the future will bo important. And
in this connection tho Sun-Democrat
is going to rink a small prophecy.
Somo time in tho future, whether
Immedhte. or distant, Flagstrff will be
an impoitaut mining center. And
when tho oily can Im.ist of its many
wood-woikiug factniics; when it
speaks pioudly of its 11. Hiring mills, lis
paper mills, picking houses and tan
net ies, it will l) as fully entitled to
possess sampling worU and smelters,

and lis oppoiiiiiiilies until rivals have
absorbed the ht-i pioducts of its le
souiees; until its sole consolation be
comes a hazy leveiie of what might
have been. We do not believo Flag
staff pusescs that kind of people, but

This is not to impl) that tho town
council has dissolved into a liquorish
condition, but Monday afternoon the
city fathers held an informal meeting
at Comity Tieasurer Francis' office to
listen to W. F. Goodhue upon the
question ot water supply for Flagstaff.
Mr. Goodhue gave a tuost interesting
talk, concerning each general phase of
tho subject, relating to souico ot
water supply, the desirability of
various sizes and material for pipes,
static aud gravity pressure, protection
of maiues and security from pollution,
and in fact, gave the benefit of his
experience aud judgment upon all
points that might be biought up iu an
informal way. That the members of
tho town board aro alivo to the water
question was shown in the interest
manifested by every one iu tho details'
aud suggestions laid befoie them.
Mr. Goodhue's opinion seems to be
that tho great basin of Old Fort valley
will supply Flagstaff with all the
water she could possibly use for years
to come with a reasonable Increase of
population, but pioposed a thorough
testing of that possible source befoio
it should be discussed, and the whole
question is to be foimally considered
by the boaid. Tho council aro united
in tho matter, 'expicsiing itho chiefest
concern to be to obtain an adequate
water system that would be consis'.cut
with the economy of timo and ex
pense. Lowell's Observutory.
Professor Lowell's observatory is
about completed, and tho glass will
atiivo in a few days when It will bo
put iu position at once. Tho now
dome is tho second largest wooden
dome in tho world, and tho telescope
is next in size to that of tho Lick.
Tho observatory will be permanont,
and is a gicat niquisitfon to our
mountain city. Prof. Lowoll and his
able corps of assistants mado many
friends during their stay here last
summer, and the utious of Flagstaff
aro glad to know they aro bete for a
peimanent stuy. They mado somo
wonderful discoveries wlnlo heic, and
no doubt tbo Skylight City, nestled at
tho base of tho lofty, Fi isco Peaks,
will be tho home of an institution
noted for its astronomical observations.
The Scientific American iu speaking of
some observations made says:
Tho recent obsetv.itions of Pcrrotin
at Nice (Franco), aud of Lowell at
Flagstaff, Arizona, says Promothous,
havo confirmed tho theory that Venus
and Mercury revolve on their axos
like tbo moon; that is, tho periods of
rotation and lovojution are identical.
Horr Brenner's alleged discovery of a
short time of rotation for Venus
(about twenty-four hours) thoreforo
proves a fallacy. According to Low
ell Venus is not veiled by clouds, but
by a dense atmosphere.
