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.
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

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

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.
