THE ARIZONA SEPOBLICAM : SUNDAY MORNING, APRIL 22, 1894.
7 V FRUIT GROWERS. Interesting Meeting at the Court House Yesterday. Figures Shown By the Fruit Tree Census An Institute to Be Organized. The masa meeting of farmers, held at the court house yesterday afternoon, under the auspices of the Maricopa Horticultural society, was well attended. The object of the meeting was primarily to organize an institute of farmers and fruit growers. Chairman Hurst presided and Farmer J. P. King of the Saturday Review was made secretary. The compilation of the census of fruit trees, recently taken by Mr. J. N. Armstrong, chairman of the executive committee of the horticultural society, and county fruit inspector J.B. Bettler, i i i . i , i , "as ueeii cumDieteu aau was preeeiuea i jr u v irir. AruiBtruug. It contained many interesting and surprising facts concerning the fruit industry in the valley. A careful esti mate showed that the crop this year would be five times as large as that of last year, and if satisfactory rates could be obtained of express and railroad companies, an average of a carload of fruit a day could be shipped from the valley for three months after the open ing of the eeason. The reading of the report was inter rupted by frequent discussions of facts presented. The census showed that there are in the county 25,000 apricot trees over three years old ; 93,000 under three years, and 11,000 giving promise of an enormous crop. Of pears there are 15,747 three year old trees, and 43,000 under; plums, 7,000 trees, which will yield several car loads. The quince crop will be heavy, though until lately little attention has been paid to this fruit. There are 14,000 bearing almond trees and 55,000 under bearing age. Of orange trees there are 90,000 of which 2,500 are heavily laden. There are 4,000 lemon trees the fruit of which has been pronounced superior in eize, thinness of rind and acidity to any other grown on the western continent. There are 24,000 fig trees and 6,000 olive trees. The strawberry crop throughout the valley was found to be almost without limit and the berries particularly those of the Arizona ever bearing variety are of unusual size, color and flavor. Mulberry trees were found every where. There are 1,000,000 grape vines in the county. The apple and the cherry trees are doing well and are well set with fruit proving to horticulturalists that those fruits supposed to belong exclusively to a more rigorous climate are equally well adapted to the soil and sun of the valley. Much interest is being taken in the growing of blackberries and similar fruits. The orchards and vineyards of the a' !ey were generally found to be in a thriving condition notwithstanding a want of intelligent care in many in stances. The subject of fertilizing which has heretofore never claimed the attention of farmers and fruitgrowers was dis cussed. The matter of the institute was taken up and it was agreed that the best method was to organize it by branches in the various communities of the county. The following executive com mittee to arrange the dates of a general meeting of the farmers and growers was appointed : W.H.Johnson, Mesa; Rev. W. H. Winter, Tempe; J. H. Arm strong, Phoenix; H. W. Adams, Glen dale, and Chaplain Scott, at large. A meeting af the institute was appointed to be held at the court house next Saturday. B. N. Johnson and J. N. Armstrong were appointed delegates to the Hor ticultural convention to be held at the midwinter fair. They left last night for San Francisco. James Rennie, the Abstinent. Jim Rennie yesterday received his Salvation Army diploma for the exer cise of abstinence during self-denial week. Mr. Rennie is the saloon prop rietor mentioned in the War Cry who agreed to turn over to the army the amount of money he would waste in drinks if he were not practicing self- denial. His diploma signed by Balling' ton Booth shows that he contributed fifty cents which proves that Mr. Ren nie is not an excessive drinker.

Had he been in the habit of drinking fifty cents worth of whisky a week as Mr. Rennie does, he says he too would have received a diploma. Electric Fans. The East End Electric works are now prepared to make contracts for fan ser vice for the coming season commencing May 1, 1894, on the only reliable, safe and satisfactory system 110 volt' direct.

It is the favorite driveway, the highest ground, the most picturesque. Half a mile out is the Simm's addition, where lots lOOx 200 are now offered for sale. The entire addition is planted with shade trees ash and umbrella. The change wnich a couple of years will work in its ap pearance will be as marvelous as the rapid increase in value of the lots. Tha ground floor seasou is now. A FALSE REPORT. An Unnecessary Hardship Upon Settlers at Agua Caliente. A special agent named Connors sent some time ago to investigate the condi tion of claims to lands taken up by set tlers visited the vicinity of Agua Ca liente.' His visit ib being recalled to the settlers in a most unpleasant man ner. His report erroneously showed that the conditions of many entries had not been legally complied with and that the claims were subject to contest. No tices have been sent to the settlers of the terms of the report. Among these is a Mr. Wedzewood whose farm instead of having been abandoned as the report showed is in a high state of cultivation and has been improved by good and substantial buildings. The settlers are for the most part poor men who have already suffered great privation by reaons of having been un able to obtain sufficient water from the Buckeve canal along which their lands lie. They are put under the necessitv of incurring the expense of a trip to Tuc son and taking two witnesses with them to disprove the false report. The Alhamora.

Dining room in charge of skillful caterers, and the best of meals served. Rates very reasonable. Mhs. Kate M. French, Proprietress. SHORTHORN AND MAMMOTH. The Biff Mining Litigation Results in a Mistrial. The Phoenix lawyers who have been engaged at Florence for the past ten days in the trial of the case of the Short horn againBt the Mammoth returned yesterday. The contest seems to have been a drawn battle at least neither side has as yet obtained judgment. The jury failed to find a unanimous ver dict in any of the thirty odd questions presented therein, but stood ten for the defendants and two for the plaintiffs. Plaintiffs' counsel claimed that with out a unanimous verdict of twelve jury men it was a mistrial and no judgment could be rendered. They further claimed that upon the findings as made plaintiff was entited to 104 feet off the south end of the Mammoth and a strip of ground adjoining its west side line, which would have entitled plaintiff to that amount of ground and costs. Judge Rouse intimated that he was in clined to agree with this latter claim and award plaintiffs a judgment for it, but hnally took the matter under ad visement, each side being allowed to file briefs. A decision is looked for at the June term. Elmo Restaurant. MENU, sour. Oyster. ROASTS. Roast beef with brown gravy, Smothered chicken with currant jelly, Old claret.

The three-eigth mile dash for a $100 pune under the auspices of the Tempe Driving association at Tempe yesterday afternoon was an exciting event. There were four entries : Hungry Joe, by A. J. Houston ; Old Bill, by Col. Rountree ; Lucy B, by C. R. McCammely and Lit tle Maud by Geo. W. Connors. The judges were E. J. Myers, Ed. Murpby and P. P. Daggs. Dr. Scroggs was timer and James Gibson and James Malarney were starters. The track is kiteshaped, the only one in the terri tory and was in excellent condition. Hungry Joe and Little Maud were slightly the favorites in the pools though the race was considered any body's until it had been won. But Hungry Joe was anyhow the fa vorite among the ladies, who thought if he would'nt win he ought to. Under the rules anything but legiti mate jockeying was obviated and little trouble was encountered in getting away. The daBh was furious and showed what manner of horses are bred in the valley. They came under the wire in the following order : Little Maud, Hungry Joe, Old Bill and Lucy B. Time, 37 4.5. Patsey McQuilken was pool seller and his voice adjured all to come forward with the coin that he might have suffi cient inducement to leave the country. Gene Angleman had charge of the booth. The attendance was lasge and there was a general sprinkling of ladies. Among those from Phoenix on the ground were Jack Gibson and wife, James Gibson and wife, Mrs. W. Mul lens, Brent Kirkland, James Hickey, Frank Prothero, Sheriff Murphy, Sam Schultz and Wm. Campbell. Constitu ting a group from Mesa were Mrs. M. Perry, Mrs. M.
