The following is an extract from the speech of Gov Hunt
delivered at the session of the twenty-ninth national irrigation
congress at Salt Like City, Utah. !'The future holds vast
opportunity for the irrigated farm in Arizona. It is estimated
that 228.000 acres are now being cultivated in the state as the
result of irrigation, and there U room for many more small
farms within that tract. It has been ascertained thit a water
supply exists today equal to about 5,000,000 acre feet annually
and as this water is impounded b dams in the future it will
gie Arizona about 1,000,000 acres ol small farms, capable of
supporting a population of 500.000. not counting the people
depen lent upon other industrial pursuits, such as mining and
railroads As the total population of Arizona is now a little
over 200,000. it will be seen that the possible future growth
of agriculture means a creat decree ol comfort and prosperity.
This future growth is not by any means confined to projects
yet to be t-taned. For illustration, there were about 130.000
acres under cultivation in the Salt Riyer Valley, in January,
1910. This can be expanded to 2So.ooo with the waters ol
the Salt and Verde rivers. The great work being undertaken
in the Colorado Valley near Yuma permitted the cul ivation
of only 6.00c acres ia i9:o. Yet, when the project is complete.
350,000 acres wil be available. The waters of the Gila valley
now irrigate 36,400 acres. '1 he possibility of the future in this
valley it 140,000 acres. The Little Colorado Valley has today
10,650 irrigated acres, and the extension of irrigation will in
crease this tract to 1 00,000 acres.
When a man goes to the polls and sees a ballot as long
-as a list of generals in the Mexican revolution, he comes away
determined to lavor the short ballot plan, but he usually for
gets all about it until the next election. Woodrow Wilson
favors the short ballot and it is one of the coming improve
ments in elections.
Governor Marshall, the democratic nominee for vice pres
ident, is making some very excellent campaign speeches in
the Middle West. Leaders of the two factions whieh no wdi
vide the republican party ar beginning to realize that the
real contest in this year's campaign is not with each other, but
with a united democracy.
As it has been settled Miat Woodrow Wilson is to be the
next president we might as well torget it ana go about our
hat Arizona needs is capital and in order to secure it
we must extend the same protection we are demanding for in
dividuals. Calamity howlees are not the kind of men who
build cities and towns.
Central Americans never had better news than" that Uncle
Sam has decided to stop their endless civil wars and promote
the peacelul growth ot the little republics.

In New York City there is being held a unique exhibition
called 'The Tariff Chamber of Horrors," says the Los Angeles
Tribune. The show is no doubt one of the most effective
means yet devised of popularizing the tariff subject and vis
ualizing the abuses of the customs tax. In the exhibit are
many articles which are sold abroad by American trusts for
less than American consumers pay for ihem.
Cook stoves, whose foreign price is$i5..aresold in Amer

Oil heaters :old in this country for ,$3,98 apiece are sold
abroad for $2. 20

The Yankee blacksmith must pay $4.10 for a hundred
weight of horseshoes. The Canada blacksmith can buy the
same kind of horseshoes for $3.20.
Lead pencils, which in the United States cost $5 a gross
are sold outside for $3.25 a gross.
The Tucson Citizen's Boost and Build edition is a jour

Arizonan who views the pic orial presentations of industrial
enterprises and peruses the well written articles of her progre-s
and development can well contemplate same with pardonable
pride. The citizen is to be congratulated upon its enterprist

In a recent speech Gov. Wilson made this pertinent
remark about politics: "I will tell you frankly, the
people of the United States are sick of politics, tired of poli
tics; they know down to the bottom of thir natures that
they are tired of everything except that which makes the
public service look like public duty and the literal transla
tion look lite the translation of the public need into the
public acts. In short, tbe people want programs and per
formances instead of spellbinders and slangwhangeis."
