Application has been made to the city council for a permit to construct a street railway connecting the towni of Mesa and Tempe with the corner of First and Jefferson 6treets such road to be operated by steam or electric power at the option of the applicant. The matter ia still pending and unde termined, because the membert of the council and the mayor desire further light on the subject. Objection is made on the ground that the locomotive will be noisy and emit smoke in the street. If the ordinary open steam engine is to be used this might be true, but if the locomotive which is known as the noise leas steam dummy is used the objection is not well taken in point of fact. Those locomotives are so constructed that they exhaust into an inclaeed chamber and the steam is condensed and at the same time the noiaa is so muffled that the noise is not objection able. In fact the noise is not so great as that made by the electric cars with their trolly apparatus, and we presume the council will easily guard the fran chise in this particular. Anyone who has seen the steam dummy operate be tween San Bernardino and Bedlandi passing through the business streets of all those cities will readily understand what we men. Those engines and cart make far less noise than our cars which are propelled by eletrlcity in Phoenix. Without street railroads in these modern times no city will be built. Pluenix is a prosperous town and hopes to grow rapidly into a thriving city, larger than any other city in the south west. Her geographical position war rants it and her abundant resources as sure it. But no such city can or will be built on one street nor within any cramped area. A city is bnilt up through many influences, one of the principal of which ia its trade. If one were to have visited the island of Manhattan before the white man settled there he could have had all the land and adjacent waters for the mere taking and when the Butch did first oc cupy (he land they made small farms, gardens and cow pastures of it. Why was the great city of New York built there? Simply because of the great facility afforded by nature for commun ication with other parts of the world. Ships sailed into the harbor and brought articles of merchandise to the inhabitants from over the high seas and the same ships carried away whatever they found there for sale and market able in other ports. At first the ex ports were limited to furs, but soon afterwards they included fish, whale oil and the products of the fishery and farm ; but finally they included almost everything considered valuable by man. The beautiful Hudson river was navi gated by sailing vessels at first and afterwards by steam boats which were invented and grew into perfection partly through the ne cessity of having such facilities for transportation and then followed the invention of trie locomotive steam engine which hauled cumbersome wagons on wooden rails. In the mean time the then great internal improve ment the Erie canal with its tow path on its bank was constructed to carry freight and passengers from the navigable waters of the Hudson river up through the fertile valleys of west era New York state to the great lakes whereby the merchants of New York sent their goods to their country cus tomers not only in such country places as Albany, Syracuse, Rochester and Buffalo but also to all the trading places on Lake Erie, Lake Michigan and con necting waters. What is the result of all this? The result is simply that New York is one of the great cities not of the great state of New York nor even of the greatefit nation on the face cf the earth, but indued our) of the great cities of the ertire world. Sum med up in one word the cause of the building of this great city was trans portation. Nature did much for that location but it waB mostly all in the facility afforded for inter-communication and exchange with other parts of our own country and the woHd at large. The products of the s'ril and climite of Manhattan island and the adjacent waters and lands were not sufficient to either build or support a city of any considerable size. The city was built and maintained and it is still growing larger ail thii time by means of its trade. Its constituency is distrib uted throughout the entire globe. How did New York build up this great trade? Not ty sitting still and waiting for outsiders to come of their own volition but by offering induce ments which forced people to patronize the merchants of New York. Improve ments were constantly made in their means of transportation, not only from the city to distant points but aleo with in their own borders. "Street railways operated by horses at first and these were superceded by cars propelled by steam in some of the streets, not in all ; but cheap means of rapid transit from one part of the city to another were fur nished on the surface of the streets so that inter-communication was easy and cheap. Ffnally, some twenty years ago, the elevated street railroads were put in, whereby passengers are carried in trains of cars along over the traffic of the street and the ordinary travel is un obstructed thereby. It is by these methods that cities are built, and Phoenix can only thrive by following the example set by others. WHO ARE THE OBJECTORS? From what source do the objections to the Mesa dummy line come? It is Baid that most of the property owners along the line of the proposed road are in favor of it and really want it built. Do our merchants who have goods for sale object? Certainly not. Does objection come from the hotel proprietors? Certainly not. Does ob jection come from our saloon men? Certainly not. Do our theatre proprie tors object? No, indeed. From whom then do the objections come? Are the objections made by the north and south road or the street railway company now operating lines? If eo, what valid reason can they urge based on a broad public policy which has the prosperity of Phoenix for its guiding star. Our morning contemporary charac terizes the proposed franchise as a fraud because it proposes to make a terminus opposite the city hall plaza, and concludes by saying that: "This scheme put in operation as laid down by the Masten franchise would make Phcenix and its city government the laughing stock of every intelligent man in Arizona." We beg to differ with the author of the language. We are of the opinion that the shoe would be on the other foot. If the city government should, through any error of judgment, be eo misled as to refuse the privilege asked for and obstruct the building of this road we do not predict that they would become the laughing stock of any one, but we feel sure they wouid always regret their action as a great mistake into which they had been led by their pretended friends and the pretended friends of the city of Phoenix. No one who has not a private ax to grind will oppose the construction of this road. If it is a fraud as the Ga zette asserts, in what particular? It will cost the city nothing. No subsidy is asked. If the road is built it will become taxable property with all its rolling stock. The fear expressed that this franchise is asked in order to en able the Phoenix & Maricopa railroad to construct round houses or to create any nuisance in the city is without any ground or foundation if the ordinance granting the franchise is properly drawn and the rights of the city properly guarded. The granting of the permit to construct a street railway to be operated by a noiseless steam motor would not authorize the owner to run open locomotive engines over the line nor to build workshops. All such talk is nonsense. If this proposition is fraudulent, wherein does the fraud consist? It will certainly benefit the city. It will bring customers to all business houses. It will increase our taxable property. It will be less a nuieanca than our pres ent electric street car line. In short it will help to build up our town into a real city. Our city council need have no fear of criticism on the ground that this style of street cars are cot now be ing generally put into cities elsewhere The fact is they do exist and have helped to build up many places of more importance than Phoenix, and when those who now criticise this proposed ("ilioe Wtore, Sloes For EwjMy This is a sweeping statement but our stock is equal to it, as surely a? ten dimes make one dollar. One of the besl and easiest, ways to make a dollar is to inflate it by the aid of our prices in footwear, that like McGinty won't be raised. Many folks of many minds want many shoes of many kinds, but nof too many for us, for our stock is made up of many kinds and styles, both in high and low shoes. IIIQT Rlf.UT Describes the shoe, price, quality and in in every case. T If The New Shoe Store, Fleming Block. road, in case it shall be built, on the ground that we should have a better or different road, will come forward and propose to build a better one, we say : "God speed, the privilege ia yours. Build, build, and operate railroads into Phcenix, but do not obstruct others who wish to do likewise." There is room for all. We have plenty of streets but few railroads. Let all who will come in and help us to build a city. All 6treet railroads are more or less a public nuisance. The rails are in the way of the wheels of carriages. The cars are liable to collide with people and carriages. All Btreet cars are noisy. Who is there that has not heard our electric cars at night rumbling along Washington street when several blocks away? And yet we must have street railroads in order to build a city. They are a necessary evil at best but the silent steam motor is no more of a nuisance than the electric car road or any other kind of street railwav. The opponents of the so-called Mas ten franchise had enpected to show to the people that there was a "joker" in the ordinance granting the right. The pubiicatioT of the ordinance has dis pelled that illusion. The simple fact is that if this franchise is granted a motor road from Mesa to Tempe will be immediately built. If it is not granted who will build it and when? There is practical business in this proposition. Who can afford to bridge the Salt river? Who can afford to build 10 or 17 miles of track? Who will invest thousands of dollars in an enterprise that is purely experimental ? Col. Masten proposes to build at once, and who is better able to do so at a minimum cost? If he does not build and begin actual operation within six months his franchise is void. The alternative presented to the people of this city is on pure business princi ples; grant his franchise and have the road or refuse it and wait for some one else to build it ! What better advertise ment for the city can be had than the fact of the existence of the motor line? Let those who have private griev ances stand back and not for personal ends obstruct this improvement. If this franchise is granted and it only takes two blocks not already devoted to railroads and within two months we will have direct, cheap and rapid com munication with the south side; refuse ft and when will that be accomplished? In the matter of the Masten street railway let us be actuated by a broad public spirit. If the franchise is de nied to the applicant what good excuse can be urged for preventing 60 useful a public improvement being made in our midst? Will the road not benefit the city generally? Will it not afford facility for the people residing at Mesa, Lehi and Tempe and all that surround ing country to make frequent visits to our city? Will that be of no benefit? How otherwise do our merchants ex pect to obtain the patronage of those people? How else do our hotels ex pect to have them as their guests? How else do our other business places and places of amusement expect to have them for their patrons? Certainly the oftener they come here the greater will be the opportunity and the proba bility of their leaving some of their money with us. The opportunity is one too important to be ignored. The council which meets tonight will please the business men of the city by passing the franchise ordinance. Of so much consequence do the busi ness men regard this matter that Godwin & Avery, the shos dealers in the Fleming block, would have been willing to pay $50 per month additional rent if the terminus of the road had been on First avenue as at first proposed. The business interests of Phcenix will greatlv suffer if this franchise is refucsd.

Smith's star has commenced to wane. The administration forces have literally invaded his own town and dealt him a political death blow. It will be two or three years before the north and south road or the preBent streec railway will be built to Mesa. Procrastination is to be avoided. Col. Masten wants to build now. Let him build should be the policy of the people and the council. The trade of the south side with dummy railway communication is worth many thousands of dollars to our busi ness men. Do they want it? That is the question which will be determined by the action of the city council to night. "FlKST COME F1E8T served" is an old but good motto. Masten will build a road now to Mesa. Others may in two or three years. We need the south side trade now. Trade is the life blood of Phoenix. The trade of the south side is not to be ignored.
