If those people who boliovo that
Arizona is a desert could sec tho

The people of Sullbrd need only

other's interests to make this tho

Tin: Bulhtin suggests that there
ought to be no jealousies in the

in this part of tho Vnlloy.

There aro no better farms, no
larger crops, no hotter fruit, no
inoio healthful climato, no moio
desirable placo to livo than in Gra-
ham county, in the Gila valley.
Wo have hero tho garden spot of
'Arizona without any question.
Work is still progressing on tho
Enterprise canal, but tho forco is
not as largo as it should bo. Every
farmer who owns land located
under it should assist in its construction,
and no time should bo
lost, either. Build it, and build it
right, and you have solved tho
Ix Ihc examination of Lemon at
Tuc3on this woek, for the killing

of com t, but was afterwards
lelcased on a w.'it of habeas corpus.
The young pcoplo of Safford
should organize a civil government
class and a debatiug society
this winter. Such work as this is
elevating and instructive, and
wany an evening can bo spont

there aro those in our midst, well
orscdin civil government, who
would be only too glad to instruct
tho young pcoplo.
The "5t. Joseph Stake Academy
opened last Monday morning with
an attendance of 50, Thomas K.
Williams, principal, and Miss
tiara h Allred, assistant. This
academy has tho reputation of being
one of the best schools for the
primary and intormediato departments
in tho Territory and deserves
o liberal pntronago. The
school is well appointed and well
fitted with apparatus. Tho
will bn kept on file there.
We have, on different occasions
spoken of the flooded condition ot
mne oi Suftord's streets. Several
of t'ne stieets wero flooded rg.tin
this week so as to render t avel
ior pedestrians almost impossible.
Wc do not want to see anyone get
into trouble, but wish to remind
them that it is tho duty of tho officers
to arrest law brcakors, and it
is just s much of a misdemeanor
to flood the road as it is to shoot
-tip the town. Wo advise those in
tho habit of allowing water to
(aceumulato in the streets to take
Eveuv thinking man knows that
tho nation's farms aro becoming
exhausted. Tho area on which
crops may bo grown without artificial
irrigation is already pretty
well occupied. Dry farming is a
lottery. Irrigation means maximum
crops year after year, and no
iailures. Tho great empires of
earlier ages havo been founded on
irrigation agricultnro, but Americ
ans have hesitatod and doubted
until a ciowdcd population now
forces them to it, and these pcoplo
who aro now reaping marvelous
profits from small tracts aic bogin
ning to realize hqw much better off
they would havo been a decade ago
if they had known what necessity
has finally taught them.
In the noxt thirty years, 70,000,-000
people must bo located some-
whoie, as tho population doubles
every thirty ycais. Possibly the
farms of the older settled states
may be subdivided and iirigatcd
so making each smaller farm more
valuable than the original one, but
as a rule new people seek now
pastures. Morcovor,agriculture al
ways is a far greater success in an
arid region for within tho limits of
tho water conditions aro favorably
for maximum plant growth. Arid
America embraces 1,000,000,000
acies. Of this vast area it is esti
mated that 100,000,000 acies may
bo irrigated with the available
water supply, and this reclaimablo
area is estimated to bo capable of
sustaining, directly and indirectly,
three times tho present population
of tho Union, or 210,000,000 people
Kansas City Star.
The Guardian did not get the
Bulletin's Eailroad Exemption article
mixed. Hero is what wc snidi
"The Bulletin says tho Majority of
the people aro In favor of exempting
the road," and tho following is
the language of tho Bulletin'. "What
moro ovidenco is needed of tho
fact that tho peoplo of Arizona are
in favor of it?" But perhaps tho
Bulletin don't know that Graham
county is in Arizona. Tho Bulletin
is so very inconsistent in its utter
ances that it is difficult to
min what it is m favor of. In its
issue of August 28d it says it represents
tho masses of Graham Co.,
then in its issue of September Oth
it virtually admits that tho major
ity of tho peoplo of tho county are
in favor of railroad taxation, whilo
it is publishing article after article
against it. Not many weeks ago
it said it was in favor of employing
counsol and paying them out of the
county treasury, in order to test a
law which, if held to bo good,
would save thousands of dollars to
tho tax payers, but now when it
comes to testing this law which, if
held to bo invalid, would assist
in county expenses just as much as
tho other, it says it will protest
against tho tax payers paying out
ono cent to test tho law. Bo con
sistent, Mr. Bulletin, and people
will have moro faith in j'ou.
The Pat says George Christ, of
Xogalcs, Arizona, has formed a
0,000,000 syndicate to irrigate
and reclaim several hundred thousand

lies in tho valley of the Santa Cruz

An interesting scries of base ball,
thanks to tho nerve and hardihood
of tho Fort Thomas club will be
played in Tucson on Oct. 15, 1G
and 17. Last week Fort Thomas
defeated Globo by a score of 20 to
1, something never heard of before
in base ball history. Such a de
cisive victory swelled the heads of
the bort Thomas boys and without
goin to tho top by degrees, they
challenged Tucson, whoso club has
never lost a scries. The boys understand
though that thoy have
some work cut out for them now.
Fort Thomas is a strong team, perhaps
better than Tucson has ever
faced. It has a good battery and
two players who havo had professional
