In the discussion of the effect of the sugar tariff upon Louisiana's principal industry the main object of the foster ing feature of the McKinley schedule is often lost sight of says the Kansas City Journal. It was not with the hope of material ly increasing the output of the cane sugar works and increasing the number of people employed in the industry there that the bounty system waB pro posed and adopted. It had been dem onstrated that the sugar beet could be profitably raised on the prairies west of the Missouri river and on the Paci fic slope, provided capital could be en couraged to make the necessary experi ments for turning the product into sugar. The territory adapted to rais ing the beet was bo large that there was practically no limit to the produc tion, but until experience should per fect methods that would insure the maximum of economy it could not be expected that succesa would be reached unless aid could be given it. Following the passage of the McKin ley law more than a million dollars of eastern money was brought to Ne braska, to the point considered to be most favorable for the enterprise, and the work of sugar making was begun on a scale so large that it attracted the attention of the sugar interests of the whole world. It was demonstrated that farmers could not be induced to raise the beets at $3 per ton. but that at $5 the industry could be made to pros per and advance rapidly. Improve ments followed npon each other until it was demonstrated that by the help of the bounty of the government the man ufacture could be made productive of a sufficient profit to warrant the building of other works. The bounty wa9 sus pended by the passage of the Gorman bill, however, and it now remains to be REPUBLICAN TICKET. Been if the sugar industry of Nebraska is to survive at all. The manufacturers, who have spent large sums in the encouragement of the farmers, have given notice that they will pay but $4 a ton for the beets next year. In order to do this without loss it will be necessary for them to still further improve their w-orks and methods. But it is altogether uncer tain whether or not they will be able to get enough beetj to continue their works at any rate. The implied con tract in the bounty provision was such that the building of the works was a thoroughly legitimate undertaking, and with its faithful continuance there is no question whatever that the out come would have been an almost bound less success. It would have meant a spread of the industry until it would have been second to no other in the whole country, beside which that of Louisiana would sink into insignificance. NEED- OF A HOTEL. Once more there is talk of a new hotel for Phoenix. The subject is re vived periodically, but each revival seems to bring the project no nearer to reality than the previous discussion. Every one concedes the great, the im perative need of a hotel for Phoenix, but talk and discussion cannot take the place of brick and mortar and dollars, and Phoenix's new hotel still exists only as a figment of hope, a dream of the future. ' Probably there is no city in the en tire universe so badly equipped in the matter of hotels as Phoenix. Perhaps it would be truer to say that Phoenix's equipment is entirely negative, for this city presents the marvelous spectacle of a capital city without a single hotel worthy of a capital city. In this respect the most insignificant hamlet in the west or the east far surpasses the me tropolis of the territory. v This is the condition confronting Phcenix. It is one that causes humili ation and regret, and it is astonishing that with the multitudinous improve ments going on in every direction and on all sides, there is not a capitalist, or a group of capitalists, who will see the financial returns that are destined to flow from a well constructed hotel. Until capital decides to make such an investment, Phoenix must continue to be, as it has been since its beginning, without a first-class hotel. But it should not remain so long. The town cannot afford to permit peo ple to leave because of lack of accom modations, an instance of which hap pened only a few days ago. A family from Ohio arrived one day and returned to Ohio the next because of bad hotel fa cilities. There is big money for a first-class, modern hotel. Already the effect of the withdrawal of the troops from Fort Bowie is ap parent, as will be seen by reference to our telegraphic columns. The govern ment should lose no time in returning troops to all of the lately abandoned posts. Reports are encouraging for Repub lican success. Everywhere men are leaving the Democratic party and join ing the Republicans. The fiesta inaugurated by Charley Meadows is a worthy enterprise and should have the encouragement of the people of Phoenix. The era for beginning public im provements is here. The council should hasten the good work as much as pos sible. Dos't scratch. This is the year that every Republican should stay by his colors. Our Streets. To the Editor of The Republican: Meeting often npon the street to con verse npon the different topics of the day, sometimes one thing, sometimes another, and at this particular time dis cussing politics is the reigning Bubject, with the merits and demerits of the dif ferent candidates for the different offi ces to be filled, by whoever will be suc cessful on t of the many tickets in the field. But next to the all absorbing sub ject is the one, how best to improve our principal streets and dress our pretty little city up preparatory to inviting its inspection by the many visitors which the new north and south road will bring. What strikes one most forcibly in driving over the streets of Phoenix is the absolute want of any system of either street making or street repairing. Of course we are somewhat retarded from doing the work as it properly should be done, by the location of the open irrigating ditches, and until they are abandoned we cannot make the de sired improvements universal ; but this difficulty can in some instances be over come at present, and where such is the case, we should proceed in the proper way and save money by making the improvement permanent, and not do less than a block of work at a time and not allow any one. or two, owners upon a block to lay a gutter or do any street work according to his fancy or notion, as very few people have any scientific knowledge of the material of which streets should be constructed, or any practical knowledge of street building, or any executive ability to expend the money appropriated for Buch purposes to the best advantage, or the moral stamina to stand off the eilurian kicker. The main idea of the most of the in experienced street builders is that the Btreets should last, and one of the best plans to satisfy this class is to construct it so that no one can drive over it, such a street is apt to last a long time, and needs no guarantee from the contractor doing the work. If it were a simple matter of durabi lity, it would be better not to pave the streets at all. There is not the slight est danger of teams wearing through the crust of the earth and getting into the heated interior sooner than they expected. To build a street with a single eye to durability is simplv barbarous. As we advance in civilization we advance in our methods. The barbarians go naked, they have no necessity- of expensive clothing With a little knowledge they commence improving In their habits of dress. At first they choose skins of wild animals or material that will last. They have a single eye to durability. Finally we become so'extravagant that we want fine flexible expensive Scotch tweed, ftr trousers. We would like to recommend wooden shoes and good strong canvas trousers to the gentlemen who think that the only material of which to pave a street is vitrified brick, cobblestones or stone blocks. If we couldhave some of our opposi tion firmly grasp the idea that streets are not laid out solely for letting air and light between the houses, but princi pally for transacting the business of the citv, and that the wear and tear ot the street is not the only item of ex pense in transacting the business of a city ; thousands of dollars are expended annually in horses, trucks, wagons, carnages and harness, and the wear and tear of this rolling stock depends largely upon the material of which the streets are made. Nor is this the heaviest item of ex pense. Thousands of dollars are spent annually in small cities and millions of money in large cities in the nerve force of its inhabitants, the rush and tur moil and all the noises of a great city tell heavily upon the longevity of itB people. Other things being equal, the man who has his business on a ma cadamized or bituminous paved street, and is equally fortunate with his reai dence is sure to nave several years longer active business life than the man whose place of business and resi J-lioo store.

The noise and jar and rattle of heavy teams passing his office all day may tell slowly but surely on his nervous system while the dis turbance to his rest and sleep at night by carriages and hacks and butchers' wagons and baker wagons and milkman in the early morn whose combined ef forts on brick or stone block streets make inroads on his nervous force just as surely if not as fast as any form of dissipation he could indulge in. The'question is, with what material should one street be pived? Certainly something should be done with Wash ington street, pave it along the busi ness frontage, say between Second av enue and Second street and Seventh street and Second and Seventh ave nue, and upon the macadam portion at the street intersections put down be tween cross walks which have been found to make the cleanest and the most durable cross walk of any ma terial used in street construction, as in many of the towns in California, principally Oakland, which perhaps contains more miles of macadam streets than any city of its population in the United States.
