The expenses of the Consolidated

Those who imaginWthat there is no

disabuse their niinfiwany such idea.
The men who have h6ld"ot the busi
ness end of the scheme are after
poils, and that class of men are al
ways to bo feared. They will stoop to
anything to carry their plans though
they wreck the treasury of both
counties. After the work is done
they will be the only ones benefitted,
and when too late the people will see
how they have been duped, swamped
and financially embarrassed.
A strong lobby has gone to Phenix

road to Nogales. Then by giving
Sierra Bonita a piece of Graham and
giving the balance of Graham to Pinal
no harm would bo done. To talk of
any other proposition would bo folly.
