TwRcooHtroeiinn of onr east and west orerland rnilromls now attrnct cupital awl oommuuds tlie Bncrgies of some of our most experienoeil railroad men, but the time is not far distant when their energMM and oapiul will lieturaed m an¬ ther direction. The Atlantic & Pacific will lie completed to a connection with the Southern Pacific during the present asason. The Nortborn 1'acifio is beine pushed h. fast as men oan do it There wat, but 270 miles on the flrstof Jnnnarv nt remaitiing to close the gap betvree the end of the railroad track in ilou- tana and Noitm, Idaho, of the western diviion extending ot from Puget Sodud. whiett will, without doubt, In¬ closed during the present snmtner. We shall thou have four gnat aver land lines from eat io west, either one of wbieh will be 2lX) miles or more in length. By looking over the Inte&t rail road maiis, it will be seen that while w have (or will have boon) four lines from east to rest, there are no continuous lines from north to south. While the need of such roads is not ho great as the east and west roadc, there in no l"Ubt bat Hiich roads will he built in a short time. Denver now lias railroad onnnee tkm south, whi'h is being rapidly ex tendel into "hi Mexico. There in also road completed from that city north in the direction of the Black Hill?, VM railed. Coming west to Ot-den we find north ami south roads leading out again from the Union Pseific. The Utuh Xortbni, a narrow gauge road, extends north IIS ratlm to Butte, Montana, and lining extended north to Helena. From Oden south, the Utuh Central, wl-ieh is a broad gauge ronil, is com pleted to Frisco, 2S0 miles, nnd is being further extendeil iu this direction. Thu it will 1h- seen that there is a beginning here of about TOO miles of north nnd south mad, and it is only a question of time when it will lie completed to a con nectiou with the Gulf nf California which mav be done by building to Tno on, for we shall have our railroad to Port Ijobo and the CalabassH branch completed before the former oonld reach here. There are good grounds for believing that this connection will, in time, be made. Aside from the local bumneas that would aeorue to such a road, there are some of the most :ex tensive and valuable iron mines in Mintuern Utah, known iu this country, which eon id lie opened up by the ex ter.xton of the Utah Southern, so as to tap the coal rjehU and the timbered lands of Aricona. We are not aware that any eo-d has Ihh-u found in Southern Utah, and but little or no timber exist cuuseqnentiy Imtb omtl and timber must be secured tn order to utilize the iron ore. There are those who think that, when th- Northern Pacific and the Atlantic and Pacific roads are completed, that railroad imilding in tlie West is done. In oar opinion tlie building of railroads in the Western States and Territories has just began. Look at Colorado, a country that does nnt possees half the advantages that Arizona does, yet by courage, energy and money it has been fairly gri. linnet! with railroads, and has trebled its wealth and population in Ins than five years, ami has built up a city that is equal or surpasses many Eastern cities which have existed for mire than a century. When vol hear men talking of s finished country in the Weet, it is safe to conclude that uch men are n it posted, sqd that they have lived through t'e past decade without having observed what ha lieen going on. Fifteen vears ago Kansas had lees Hum po ,fltt; to 1 1 j- ..I, liu. tt p pulation of thirteen hundred thous- auds. Ten year, ago Colorado did nut pji wo half tlie population that Arisona doe t-day; she now lias a population of 3ltl,Wl0, ami is growing rapidly. By observing what has been done in the way uf settling up and improving other countries, we can come very near cal¬ culating what may be done in the future of Arts na. What we need is mor.' life, ntore push, more energy, with full determination to make the most of what we have at oardipoal. tri eucalyptus Has tor several years beei: recognized as the heist purifWr of m-darini districts. There are many plaraw in Arizona where the planting of encaUutu trees would prove highly beneficial. Indeed there is scarcely any agricultural districts in Arisona, but p n ii or sen more or lens ma Inn .. It is supposed by many that the onealyptus will not grow in Arizona; but it is a mistake. The canee of failure, in most instances has been owin .' to the trees having been pU ited in the Spriug, when they should always be plaated iu the fall nf the year. Even in California where they do the lieet. it is usual to iaut the young scions iu the fall of the year. We should be pleased to hear of some of our laud owners adjoining Tuc¬ son on the west, making preparations to plant encalyptas trees the coming fall. The punting of sueh trees would be good for the health of the city, and the crop would prove one of the most re- mnae'ative that uonld be cultivated. About a thousand treon should lie put nan acre to start with, which may be gradually thined out to abont three hundred. The small trees out out would make eicullent wood, while the remaining three hnadred would readily bring one dollar nnd a half apiece at eight years old, or ji.ftu an acre, ou the stump at present prices; but it is more than likely the price of wood will Ik- at least 50 per neat higher eight years heuce. The cut tings from small trees would yield from $310 to $800 per were, during the first five years. Bnt if parties should want to realise on the entire jrup at au earlier date, the trees oould lie cut at any time after five years old with go i profit Laud plants ui eueslyptu trees near Tucson orotber large towns io Arizona, could be easilv made to yield a profit of from 475 to $100 per acre e.ch year. Why not try it, at least in n small way ? Tmb Ditede Moray, whoso mi-tress, a beantifnl young Kassiau ootrers, killed herself in his Parisian apartments a few months ago because be had abandoned her, was au honored guest at Winder hilt's rreat hall. Uism his arrival in New York, the duke was welcomed at the Union dob, aud was fnrni'hed with a visitor's ticket Will the time never come when men. whose lives are marked bv fraud and immorslities, will be dt- ited admittance into social circles which are reputed to ! pure? A ooMPiuinoN of the good words said of the late Peter Cooper by the press of this country, would make a book of 2.000 pages. It pays to be good, after all. Peter Cooper oould have left no better heritage to his children than his good Ten vears ago Denver bad 5,090 less people than Tucson now has; but the tune is coming when Tucson will be the equal of Denver in population and wealth. TMmaantMtureof steel gun?, auth¬ orised by last Congress, will soon be¬ gin. It will not be long before the citizens of Tucson will be able to enjoy life without having to go to California and the East to avoid the hut days of our long bummer months. When the nar¬ row gauge road enter the pine regions of the north, beautiful 1 -cations for summer resorts may lie selected, where there is an abnndance of pure, o Id, spriug water, and where the fragrant perfumeof pine timber fl Jits through the atmosphere, giving a ph aant and invig¬ orating tone to the pure mountain air, which will impart new life and health to those who may be in need of it, while later in the season, a trip to the beach ontheGnlf cf California over the Port Lobos road would lie in order. A run of three or four hours will then give ns all the comforts of the tropical or temper¬ ate zme, while the coat would amouut to little or nothing. There is no part "f the Union that ulTers greater induce¬ ments for permanent settlement, with fairer prospects for future success than Arizona, nnd the sooner people make up their minds to this fact, the sooner they will realize that what we Btate is true. Irsuch men as James M. Barney Silas White, Mr. Parsons. X. It. Vuio and a number of othurs e could name, would come to Tucson and invest their money, instead of potting it out at low interest in California and the East, they would do much better. We are going to build a city here and we should like to have such men as wo have named help u. to do it The Tabors, the Houtts und the Hills, who have made their money in Colorado have invested it there, nnd have doDe well. We seo no reason why nr rich men should not do equally well by investing in Arizona. We need several blocks of first clas butluincs in Tucson, and the men who will come forward und invest their money in such buildings here will realize handsome profits on their invest menti. We also need a first claps bote! which should cost not less than SIOO.O1 The Barney hotel, the White hotol, the Vale hotel or the Parsons hotel any¬ one of these names would be good for hotel, and would at ouce become popa lar. The invontive spirit of the Ynnkee will never cease; the latest thing out is the building of a steamboat for church purposes. Many little towns along the lakes nre too poor to build churches or eraplov ministers. This long nee-led want has at last been supplied in a novel way. Rev. Captain Bundy, of Cleve¬ land, Ohio, has built a steamer, which he him-elf commands, and which he paid for by contributions from the rich men of north Ohio. During the summer season Captain Bnndy visits many small towns along the coasts of Lake Erie and Lake Michigan, preaching the gospel to the sturdy lumliermen, many of whom have not heard the word of God for years. On arriving nt a town, ins com ing is duly advertised, and on the first Sunday following, the boat bell is rung, announcing that it is time to come to church, and the cabin of Captain Bnn dy's boat is usually filled with anxious seekers for the truth. The captain will no doubt accomplish much good, liesides having a splendid time fishing during the week days. Tacoju, Washington territory, is again coming into prominence as tno western terminus of the Northern Pacific railroad. The townsite wss selected in 1879, after a most careful survey of 101) miles on I'uget Sound, be¬ cause of its suerior harbor winch is said to lie one of the finest in the world. A natural barrier protects it, and the Great Eastern oould lie nlongside the piers of the Xothern Pacific Rmlroad Company, and there would be several fathoms of water under the keel. It is at the outlet of the Puyallup valley, a rich agricultural region. Pine beds of bituminous coal are near at hand. Tl area of territory' of which Taroma will be the chief town, is as large as two or three western States. It is believed that it will, within the next ten years, become ono of the most important cities on the Northern Pacific const It present imputation is about 4,1X10, it has water works, gas, several churches nnd already enjoys a thrifty and prosromns business. Key. Joseph Cook who has lieeu aruur-d the world, seen all places and all people, has agaiu taken to lecturing us the I lest means of relieving his cnimeious mind which he has crammed full of all kinds of things, while he was abroad He now delivers what he calk a prelude, which is somewhat after the style of George Francis Train, iu which he dodges nhout touching almost every question in politics or religion before he begins his lecture, lie consumes about au nour witti ins preimie, ana men begins on his lecture which requires about fifteen minutes iu its delivery. Mr. Cook understands some questions thoroughly and his discussion of such questious is edifying aud entertaining; but unfortunately he has a way of taking up other questions of which he knows little or nothing about, aud discusses them with the same ardor and earnest¬ ness that he does those with which he hau made himself familiar. Smallish of a malignant type u raging iu Galena and Empire City, Kan- i. It broke out in tin-so towns, which are only divided by an imaginary' hue, abont four mouths ago, aud there seems to be no immediate prospector eradicat iug it, and for want or proer quarantine system until too late it is spreading to neichlioriiig towns. Thirty deaths arc reported at Empire City aud Galena and one hundred and fifty new cases in the past three weeks. Boston Mill, n small place of nnt more than seventy- live inhaoitatits reports thirty people down either with smallpox or varioloid. Lowell City has ten cases, nnd it is known to exist in several other towns in that vicinity. These towns are within the lend mining district and the disease is supposed to have been introduced by Cornish and Welsh miners from England. We have a few Colorado men in Tuc¬ son. e wish there were more, they are a live, enterprising set of fellows, who believe iu doing something to de¬ velop the country, bring it out and make it valuable. They know how their own State hae grown up from nothing to prominence and wealth, and they have full faith in Arizona, aud believe that she will do equally as well.
