Mr, Lncey, (Iowa) chairman of the
sub-committee, said ho recommended
Judge McCluro in strong terms, believ
ing him to be ono of the best and most
competent men in Arkansas.
Mr. Brcckenridgo proceeded to quoto
from a statement made by Mr. Black
bum (a Republican) to show tho bad
character ot Mr. McClure. Ho critizized
in severe language tho action of tho sub
committee asserting he hod been de

Mr. Dalzell, of Pennsylvania, read in

theft of the ballot box at Plummervillo,
and said its theft was absolutely neces
sary to Breekenridgo's return. Yet ho

stolen by Republicans. This was
a Republican ballot box. Tho
House stood dumbfounded in tho
face of such sublime embodiment
of Impudence. Ho commented upon
tho backwardness of tho Stnto of
Arkansas in endeavoring to hunt down
the murderers. From tier desecrated
soil tho blood of John M. Clayton cried
to hcavon, not for vengennce, but for
justice and tho members of both sides
wero hero ns sacred ministers to execute

I'artlcutarn of tho Wreck on the New
York Central Three .Men Killed on a
Now .lerooy ltoad.
Albany, N. Y., September 5. Iut
night, at midnight, a successful attempt
at train wrecking was made on tho New
York Central, near Greenbush. The
train, which was on its way to Montreal,
consisted of eight sleepers, which were
well filled. It was completely derailed,
butbarring tho shaking up of tho passen
gers and bruising a half dozen or so,
nothing more serious than wrecking
tho cars resulted.
A rail had been jammed into the cat
tle guards, wedged with timbers and
securely held bv fish plates. The whole
arrangement was placed in a position
to lift a train elcar off the (rack.
An investigation revealed a similar ob
struction on the south bound track, a
little way below. Evidently it was tho
intention to wreck the freight trains
soon due on both tracks, as the regular
Montreal passenger bad passed and tlio
one wrecked was an extra.
A reward of 5.000 is offered tor the
apprehension of tho miscreants.

Rodney's arrest is tho owner of the
Oregon Picture Frame Company.
Young Rodney, who lived with Morse
while in his employ, was gieatly sur
prised at his arrest and denied that he
was gujlty. "Perhaps it was because of
a land deal I had with Morse that I
havo been arrested," said Rodney today,
"But as my dealings wero perfectly
square, nnd in view of tho fact that
Morse lias the land in his own name, I do
not see how on earth this charge could
Iw trumped up against me. The day I
left Portland I got a letter of recom
mendation from Morse, and it was on
the strength of that letter I it a posi
tion with a Chicago firm, and was about
to depart for my old territory ns their
agent when I was" arrested."

It states there is much political pros

State Leagues aro admonished to keep
up active work in the off years.
Referring to the tarifl the address
says: "We still adhero with firmness to
tho doctrine that a good tariff law is a
real protector of our country's prosper
ity. Tho theory of free trade is a her
esy that calls upon us to lend a helping
hand to completo its overthrow. In this
direction alone the Stale Leagues can
accomplish unmeasured good."
Leagues aro urged to uphold the Sen

elections bill, adding: "It is not for us
to say whether the present pending fed
eral election bill shall pass in the man
ner in which it is drafted, but we do
earnestly insist that it shall pass in its
present form unless somo better one
shall bo speedily devised."

Homes in (ho Salt River
Wonderful Showing in Two
Years' Growth.
A Primitive Arcadia That Will Grow
More and More Beautiful as
Time Rolls on.
"If you will be ready to-morrow
morning at 8 o'clock I will give you a
fine ride and at tho same timo afford
you an opportunity to see some of tho
finest fig orchards in Arizona," said Mr.
II. II. Logan to a Repuiilican reporter
Thursday. Accordingly the "pencil
shover" was ready at the appointed time
and together with Mr. J. 0. Dunbar of
tho Gmctle and Mr. T. A. Jobs of tho
Herald started out with Mr. Logan yes
terday for a drive over somo of the
famous Salt River Valley lying north
west of the city. The main objective
points wero tho fruit ranches of Win.
II. and Samuel F. Bartlett, and Logan
& Adams.
The first one visited was that of Logan
& Adams located on Sec. 33, T. 3 N.
R. 2 E., nine miles from the city and
contuinine a young vineyard of eighty
acres. The vines in the vineyard are
but two years old but their growth and
crop this yeai would indicate them to be
three to four years of age. Tho ranch
is under the immediate supervision of
Mr. Taylor, and his careful work is
shown in the excellent condition in
which the ranch is kept. When the
subject of taking care of tho ,crop for
this season became one to be met Mr.
II. W. Adams, who has general control
of the linn property concluded it best
to begin the work of making raisins.
Accordingly Captain Wright, an old and
experienced raisin grower of Fresno,
California, was secured to take charge
of the work. A packing house and cur
ing house were built, trays prepared
and tho work of cutting begun. Even
this early in the Eeason tho crop Is near
ly all dried and cured and the work of
packing is now going on.
On account of the vines being to young
as they are tho raisins nre not so large
as the choicest of those from California,
but in qualityand sweetness they exceed
either tresno or Riverside. The skin is
very thin and tender, the raisins are
clear and sweet and the work shows that
raisin growing can be made even more
profitable hero than it is in California.
So much faith have the owners of this
ranch in the success and profitableness
of raisin culture that they rooted 80,000
cuttings this summer, and the coming
winter will add another eighty acres to
their vineyard, making 100 in all. Cap
tain Wright says no considers grapes
grown here of superior quality to those
of California for raisins and thnt by tho
timo the vines nre six to eight years old
they will produce the finest layer raisins
in the world
Adjoining this ranch to the west, and
embracing all of Section 32, lies the
ranch of Mr. Reuben Baxter. Mr. Bax
ter has 200 acres now under cultivation,
forty of it in alfalfa, 110 in hay and
grain, ten in promiscuous fruits and
forty in raisin grapes. His vineyard is
but five months old, but makes a most
wonderful showing. It is clear of any
weeds nnd grasses, the vines are remark
ably thrifty, and a careful inspection
shows that fully 98 per cent of the cut
tings planted lived.
Proceeding a milo further to the west
the party arrived at the ranch of Win.
II. Bartlett, which contains all of Sec
tion 30, in the same township. The
ranch is under the care and manage
ment of Mr. Hnrry W. Adams. This
ranch is one of the most beautiful and
well kept tho reporter has ever seen.
In Mr. Adams, Mr. Bartlett has an ex
cellent superintendent and tho neat and
thrifty appearance of everything shows
the skilled horticulturist." Sixty-seven
acres of this ranch aro now planted to the
White Adriatic fig, most of which are
two years old. Tiie trees show a phe
nomenal growth, the trunks being from
five to eight inches in diameter. Tiiis
year there has been picked two erops
which have been dried nnd packed and
tho trees aro now laden with a third
crop which will be ready for picking by
tho first of November.
Besides this large acreage of figs there
is a raisin vineyard containing forty
acres, and forty acres aro devoted to
promiscuous fruits. To give an idea of
what can be grown here a list of some
of tho fruits on this tract is given. They
consist of peaches, pears, plums,
prunes, apricots, nectarines, almonds,
olives, oranges, lemons, limes, guavas.
annles, pomecranates, and several
others. Besides the land already
devoted to fruits over fifty acres addi
tional are under cultivation, producing
alfalfa and grain.
On Section 4, T 2 N, K 2 E, lying
two miles south of William II. Bartlett's
ranch, lies the ranch of his brother, Mr.
Samuel F. Bartlett. This is under tho
supcrintendency of Mr. A. J. Straw,
and is nlmost a duplicate of the other
ranch. It has sixty acres in figs, sixty
in grapes, fifty in promiscuous fruits
and forty in alfalfa.
Tho Bartlett brothers aro wealthy
brokers of Chicago, and being impressed
with the Salt River Valley, purchased
land on which to build winter homes.
They believe that this is preeminently
the homo of tho fig in America, and tho
success attending their work would
seem to bear them out in that belief.
Tho White Adriatic has been pro
nounced superior to all other varieties,
and tho quality produced hero excels
those of California or Arabia. In the
last named country the figs, when
dried, nro put in lye, to eat a portion of
tho skin so as to make it tender enough
for the market. In some localities the
figs aro placed in strong brine to make
the skin tender. Figs grown here do
not require this treatment. Of such
superior quality and tenderness are
they that they aro only dipped in cold
water for cleansing after being dried,
nnd they are ready for market. The
skin is very tender, tho seeds small,
and the figs are sweeter than the im
ported ones. These orchards would be
a revelation to many residents of tho

Territory, and aro well worth visiting.
Between the Maricopa and Arizona
canals tho party drove by a number
of ranches well worth nn ex
tended description. On Section 9, T.
2 N., R. 2 E., is the fine stock ranch of
W. J. Murphy, containing 320 acres,
240 of which aro covered with alfalfa.
On the southeast quaiter of the same
section is the ranch of Mr. Bennett on
which is a vineyard of 10 acres and some
of the largest peach trees for their age
only two years ever seen. It was on
this ranch that Mr. Bennett raised on
one acre of land last year the enormous
crop of 2970 pounds of barleyj Alexander
Silva on Section 15 has a Iwautiful home
of 100 acres, most of it under cultivation
and pioducing alfalfa, corn, sweet
potatoes and sorghum. AH the town
ship shows up well, notably so Sections
14, 15, 10, 21 5, 0, 7 and 8.
The wnter for irrigating all the vast
Territory northwest of the city was not
turned into the canals until in 1'ebruary
1888. ' Not n tree or shrub had been
planted previous to that time, and on
most of tho land the sage brush had not
been cleared off. As one drives along
the roads today and sees the enormous
growth of trees nnd vines it seems in
credablc of belief that all this has been
accomplished in two years, It shows
the wonderful future that Jies before the
Salt River valley. The soil isof the rich
est, the water supply is inexhaustible,
the climate is incomparable. AH the de
ciduous nnd semi-tropical fruits can be
raised side by side. Under these con
ditions who can doubt but what the
population will, ere many years, reach
the 300,000 estimated by Lieutenant
dishing to have inhabited this same
valley in the pre-historic ages.

Ho describes the brutal scenes which
ho witnessed on Snghalien Island, the
famous Russian exile prison. A large
party of exiles of all ages, heavily man
acled, were being taken to the island.
A few old men, whose strength gave out,
fell from exaustation and a brutal driver,
acting under orders from his superior,
shot the unfortunate men. No mercy
or discrimination was shown. Wives
saw their husbands killed before their
eves, and-mothers saw their daughters
outraged and insulted. Exiles were
driven like cattle, a heavy whip being
used to urge them on. The prison cells
were filty nnd the treatment barbarous.

Describes the Bar as Possessing
Ability and Has a Good Word
for the Statutes.
Chief Justice Gooding, of the Supreme
Court of Arizona, has during his short
stay in Phoenix drawn to himself the
good will of the bar of the county and
all others who have been so fortunate ns
to attain his acquaintance. He is a
lawyer of undoubted acumen and, unlike
the usually accepted idea of a learned
jourist, a gentleman of most affable
The Judge was found yesterday after
noon, resting from his labor, in an arm
chair, under the Lemon Hotel porch,
and, in the course of a friendly conver
sation with a representative of The Re
funucAN, gave expression to many cn
couraging sentiments relative to tho
Territory in which he had determined
to cast his lot.
"I have been in Arizona only a few
months," said Judge Gooding, "but
during that time have traveled over a
large extent of its surface, and can say
that it is much superior to the usual es
timate put upon it by the outside world.
The jieoplo are peaceable, yet pos
sessed ot ample push and vital
ity. The climate is all that could
be wished for a combination,
where a perfect summer may be
enjoyed on mountain plateaus only a
hundred miles from a valley possessed,
as this is, of as fine a winter climate as
can be found on the globe."
"How do you regard tho prospect
for Arizona's advancement, Judge?"
"I have been from Quebec to San
Diego and from Duluth to New Orleans,
and have carefully noted my impres
sions of each locality visited, and I do
not recall any section that promises
mnro substantial nnd nndurins nroirresa
than this part of Arizona. Development
must Ik) rapid, though it may appear
slow. Colorado was not as quick m de
velopment as has been Arizona, nnd
Denver was a mere village out a lew
years ago.
"The Territory has not been pioperly
advertised. It has, to be sure, oeen
located as the scene of most of tho fic
ticious border tales of blood and thun
der, but the real meritorious features
have lieen lost sight ot and arc out little
known. If the resources of the Terri
tory and the wealth of this valley were
but known in the East, there would Tie
no lack of the best of settlers. And
yet, just as I might say of Denver, the
progress ot a place largely depenus upon
its inhabitants. No town without
energy can go ahead, while cities havo
been made to grow in even tiie most un
inviting spots."
"Do you believe that Statehood would
be advantageous to development?"
"I do. indeed." wnrmlv responded the
Judge. "Statehood is desirable for many
reasons. Men of capital ery naturally
prefer to emigrate to a State rather than
to a Territory. Tho stronger and more
effective system of State government
claims greater respect for its laws than
does the Territorial plan. With local
self-control things are managed much
more satisfactorily at least the people
think so."
"It is to be hoped, Judge, that your
experience has been pleasant w ith the
Territorial bar and the peculiar laws
under w hich they labor."
"I am happy to find the bar composed
of an average" of very able men, who
have shown enterprise in moving from
the slower life of tiie older communities
to the bustling towns of the far West.
Men of ability are practicing before our
courts who have come from almost
every State in tho Union.
"To the diversified legal talent is per
haps due the somewhat confused state
of tho Territorial statutes. They arc
modeld, in different parts, nfter the
codes of several States, and have been
subject to frequent changes, not always
for the best. This has made the practice
of law uncertain, but things are crystal
lizing into much better shape. I think
the present code has more virtues than
it has usually been credited with, yet
there are a number of crudities that
might profitably be corrected.
"I am going to Florence tomorrow,
after which I will go to Prescottbut will
take great pleasure in returning to your
beautiful city during tho next term of
the Supreme Court in November."
