That was a silly canard circula ted bT the Conritr to the effect that JT all the delegates of southern Arizo Jt ot had banded together an J aent a commissioner to Phoenix to consult with our legislators concerning the removal of the capital to Phoenix, The thing we regret about it is tbatitisall bosh. The friends here of Mr. C. O. Fos ter of Prescctt, whose name is men tioned for the office of Survryor General of the Territory, speak very highly of him as to ability and as gentleniau. If we nius-t I.kvc a D a- pri in tlie i.lace nerhap it would be as well filled by Mr. Foster aa by any man lively to i be chosea.

He, in fact, frankly pledges himself as president-elect, -to main tain the system. He has ever been its consistent friend -nt-upporter. Cleveland will no- doubt reward his friends so fnf as he enfaoL-ao aad benefit his administration but he has shown himself the'aa'agonist of the ancient Democratic doclnne that "to the victors belong the'"ipaili. " ' Society events indicate, accord ing to our metropolitan ''exchan ges, that the custom of New Tsar's receptions has seen its last season among regular society people. Even this season society psople were largely out of town or did not receive when present. Tke custom is a very prstty one, so long AS confined, strictly to friends and -acquaintances, but boyond that it has been so much abused in the ;past tbat as a gensral custom it is Tapidly coming to an end. 3Lr. M. H. Calderwood yester day -gave us a graphic account of "bis trip tu Tombstone with a cargo of hogs which illustrates to a dot tbe unjut-t dii-criminatiun of the .railroad company . as , well; 'A9 the oppressive operations so which its agents-resort in some insiancea.-Mr. Calderwood xs laid over a day at Tucson, after traveling 00 miles, then again a day at Benson, within tweaty-six miles of his destination and was also coolly informed that if bi3 cargo had been from Los An geles he woirid have been charged $14 per car freight for his hogs but as it was from Maricopa he would be charged $24 per car. Such in justice to' the business men of our valley should excite the legislature to a very curious endeavor to do something jto give our business men a chance. We obt crvtd yesterday a petition circulating about town asking that, should the legislature institute a commission for the codification and revisal of our laws this winter Judge C. A. Tweed be appointed a member of said commission.-, Tbo petition wus signed ; by the eulire i - bar of Phoenix And a number of other citizens and it would be an ' emniineutly proper thing to place Judge Tweed in the position as pray ed tor . His many years as u 'judge upon the bench and advocate at the baron the Pacific roast, and al.-o in the earn, have given him a most thorough knowledge of law and a power of discrimination of its more complicated and subtile essentials Loot possessed by the bar at large The j wlge is systematic and thorough going and as one of the comniis. loners would be the right mau in the right place. An O'lio judge has made a right eous and common sense dtcinon lu relation to the rights of railroad companies and their customers, for whom they tiausport merchandise: The case was that of a shipper of il en the the Lake Shore railroad, against the company. He nns charged a higher rate of transporta tion on the same quantity of oil car ried the tame distance than was de manded from the great Standard Oil Company. The court held that a railroad company is nut at liberty to charge ae shipper, less than another becaus ; he happens to ship larger quantity of freight than his competitors, that such a discrimina tion is Lot justifiable in law. This is a wholesome decision, and will tend to chock the power of monopo lies to crush out their weaker rivals' il business Ex. Aa Arisoaa Porkopolls. Work has been started on the pork packing establishment and rcfriger ator which a company organized by M. Wilkins is building at' 1'heo- bix. One or tlie most experiencea pork piukfis of Cincinnati has been engaged to take charge of tht works, which will have a capacity of 1,200 o 1,500 hogs yearly, betides several ons of ice per day. At the present rice or liogs and baron tins ousi nits wilt prove more profitable than a gold mine. It will also grtall benefit the Territory, by keeping a large amount of money at home, which now eoi.s to California. The citizens ot Phoenix know a good thing when they see it and deserve success for; their pluck and enter prise. Ex. Now the above is exceedingly flattering,but we are sorry to say that work has -.not beeu "started" uor do we find, after the most dilligeat in quiry, "a , member of the company aid to have been organized here There will doubtless be an opening here for suth au institution, when some one comes hsre who has the enterprise and money to put up such an establishment and carry forward the businesswhicb it will entail in an economical and business like manner. Yesterday we published a letter from the Hon. C. T. 11 ay den to Gov ernor Tritle, respecting the Building of a line of railroad, which com mands the serious attention of Yav apai, Maricopa, Pinal, Pima and Gila counties, as the system of roads briefly sketched in Mr. Hayden's latter concerns them all in a most important manner. The system al luded to in "Sir. Haydeu's letter pro vides for a railroad outlet to Prescott and Jerome by a ruad connecting with the Mineral Belt line to Globe and a line tbat would connect Pies- cott and Phoenix directly and which also includes Florence and Tucson or Beason.'I;nhort the system of road suggested"! by" 'Mr. Hayden closely units! the material interest of aln.ost tho entire Territory, whereby we would cotse to be, in a great measure, dependent upon the outside world for our various' supplies while we would have greater facilities of reaching outside markets to any ex tent desired. The line ;uggcsted by the honorable gentleman unites the great mining, lumber and agricul tural regions of tbe Territory and gives tbem reciprocal markets and supplies, thus doing away in a great measare with the immense expense of freight ; to , which cur business men are forced each 'year as matters now stand. The system would also unite the Atlantic i. Pacific rond with the SouThern Pacific and al most th entire Territory be comes largely self-suppvi ling and commercially Independent. Let Prescott build, her railroad to the southeastward and tho distance she goes in tbat direction that it would take to build to Ash Fork, would put her -within reach of a Globe aud a Phoenix road, while Jerome would have no longer a braucb road to build than she vould have to to reach the Ash Fork and Prescott Hue proposed. More ot the Territory would be reached by such a line thaa by any line yet suggested and more of her material interests would.be closely-united. ..... - j TELEGRAPHIC. GETTING EVEN.

Wealth of the Territory. Various causes have united effect ing a great shrinkage in values in both real and personal property, Arizona as well aa elsewhere, and as a matter of course in the assessment of property this fact was taken into eonsiderutittn and the raies of value of property was placed much lower than iu former years. Yet under these unfavorable conditions, the assessed value of the properly of Arizona, as officially reported from all counties save one, shows a tolal value of real and persona property of $21,026,861.37, of which $9,202,234 is personul property. The real value of real and personal property thus enumerated would be its selling price which Is double its assessed value, and which would make the total value ot proerty over $42,000, 000, which is certainly not a bad ex hibit for a territory which is just beginning to claim some attention.

A commission to examine the proposed route and tbtain all data requisite in the premises us to cost of building, its earning, etc., would have now been in Prescott, bud they not been prevailed upon by tbe Governor lo delay their visit til the subsidence of the sever storms which have recently visited every section of tbe West.
