THE WILLIAH5 NEWS GRAND CANYON RAILROAD WORK Completion of this Road to the Rim of the Canyon in the Immediate Future. ARIZONA'S WORLD-FAMOUS RESOBT Can be Reached by Rail by Sep tember 25th. nny Fine Im provements Contem plated Soon. The outlook for the future of the rand Canyon as a report for pleas ure and right-seers is becoming more and more bright as the days go by. On last Saturday a party -omiofed of A. u. ells, acting general manager; J. J. Byrne, gen eral passenger agent, and R. B Burns, chief engineer, of the Santa Fe Pacific, accompanied by Archi tect Chas. F. Whittlesey, of Chi i-aeo, went out to the canyon to look over the work in hand and form plans for the further promo tion of same. Work on the rail road is progressing rapidly, and we ran state on good authority that the first train will be run over the i-ompleted road not later tlian Sej- tember 25th. The grading force of B. Lantry's Sons, of Strong City, Kansas, is expected to finish its work to the rim of the canyon Sej- tember loth, so that within ten days from that time the first train shall have been able to cover the entire distance from Williams to this, the greatest of all natural wonders. Elaborate plans for a large hotel are now Wing drafted by Mr. Chas. Whittlesey, which will be a structure that would grace any of our large eastern cities. - The hotel, when completed, will cost not less than S0,000, and will be fitted up in elegant style; having 100 guest rooms, together with a finely equip ed office, billiard rooms, bowling alleys, etc. The location for this mammoth hotel has. already been decided up on and the plans will be ready and contract let by September 15. The erection will be pushed forward as rapidly as possible in order to ac commodate the now heavy and ever-increasing trafic to this great resort. The hotel will be under the management of Mr. Fred Har vey, which, in itself, is a guarantee to the traveling public. Travel to the canyon just now is lighter than it has been for some time past, owing to other attrac tions in different sections of the country, but with the winter travel to and from the coast, the present hotel at the canyon would not le large enough to accommodate all the tourists. Further than this, when the road has leen completed, many people, who would not un dertake the journey because of the drive from the end of the track to the canyon, will gladly make the journey when they are able to ride in a car directly to the rim. Verily I The future greatness of the Grand Canyon has just begun. THE ARIZONA CODE Received Last Week and Turned Over to the Territory. The Arizona code, published by E. W. Stephens, state printer of Missouri, was received last week and turned over to Secretary Stod- Jard, by whom it will be distrib uted. The work has been very well done and is quite presentable. A few typographical rrors have lieen discovered, but none of them are vital. There are 2,500 copies, of a little more than 1,500 pages each. The weight of the shipment is more than lu.UUU jounds. The code will be sold to those not des ignated by law to be entitled to copies free, at f 5 a copy. There is a misunderstanding as to those entitled to free copies. Tli is misunderstanding grows out of a contradiction between the law authorizing the publication of the code and the old law still in force defining the duties of the secre tary of the territory in the matter of the distribution of the laws. that provided that he should fur nish to all public officials, sheriffs, district attorneys, etc., boards of supervisors and justices of the peace each a free copy of tlie stat utes. The new law, in the passage of hich the old one was overlooked, is much less liberal. It designates as those to whom copies shall be given free, the members of the leg islature, the judges of the district court and territorial officials. Re publican. Improving; with Age. Like wine, the Los Angeles Her ald's Magazine is improving with age. It seems almost incredible that so much excellent reading matter could be gotten together each week, and lavishly illustrated, and given free with a Sunday paper. There are very few papers in the whole country that attempt to give anything like it, and the wonder is that the Herald can make it profitable. It is one of the best supplements to a Sunday newspaper that we have ever seen.
