THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: WEDNESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 31, 1894.
THEY MOST OPEN. Private Proprietorship of Alleys Set Aside. The City Proposes to Take Complete Possession of Its Seml- Thorouzhfares. The city council has prepared pleasant surprise for a large number of Phcenix property owners who, not con tent with possession of the property acquired by purchase, deed or gift have appropriated the alleys of the city to their own use. In many cases this use consist! only of the employ mentofthe alleys as receptacles for manure, garbage, etc. In. other cases the alleys have been fenced in from time immemorial and exist only in name ana on the plat. successive councils nave taken up the subject and dropped it without action. Now the allevs are to be opened in earnest. This conclusion was reached by accident last night in the course of a general discussion con cerning the streets. It came about in this way : The city marshal was ex plaining the difficulties which con fronted mm in his efforts to keep the alleys free from gar bage. There seemed to be a well- established and growing opinion among property owners that the alleys were only semi-public property, the city's interest in them lying only in its right to keep them clean. A common reply to his remonstrances against obstruct ing them with garbage was "What in the devil do I pay taxes for I'd like to know if it isn't to hire scavenger wagon's to keep things clean?" The marshal said that when he had made arrests in aggravated cases he had been charged with prejudice and persecution. Citv Attorney Israel offered a solution of the difficulty. He said that if the marshal and members of the council would give him a list of the names of those holding partial or com r let e pos session of alleys he would notify them to remove all obstruction. A failure to do so would be followed by prosecution xnis was agreed to so that within a month all the alleys of the citv. manv of which have never been in public use will De tnrown open. The matter of street grading, street crossings and, cleaning ditches was re ferred to the street commmittee. The city attorney reported the result of a conference with the legal repre sentative of the water company on the subject of the erection of additional hydrants. The company had decided to decline to do so on the ground that under the terms on which the city pro posed it would impair the franchise. The matter of making improvements in the city hall building and preparing the council and assembly rooms for the next legislature was discussed. IN THE EAST. Return of Territorial Treasurer . Cole. The All-Absorbing- Topic Is the Bus iness Revival Matters on the North'and South Road. Territorial Treasurer Cole returned yesterday from a five weeks tour of the e3t embracing the eities of Kansas City, Chicago and Cincinnati, and his former home at Springfield, 0. In the first place he says that the business re vival has come to stay and is grow ing. The usual premonitory sign of a better fseli"g has given way to the re vival itself and the country is now in the midit of it. Politics, Mr. Cole says, are not at tracting so much attention in the east as might be supposed. People are pay ing more attention to business and re fuse to be turned aside by political ex citement.. A heavy vote will be cast everywhere and it is generallyconceded that Kepublican gains will be heavy, but perhaps not heavy enough to over turn the Democratic majority in the next house. This would undoubtedly have been accomplished but for the late looking up in trade, and he thinks t iat if thi election had been deferred forur weeks, or if the revival had begun four weeks earlier, the Democrats might hav held their own in this fall's contest. People throughout the mid die a es, Mr. Cole says, are thorough ly wearied of all sorts of legislation, tariff aid silver, and ask now only to be let alone. O i his return he came by the way of Prescott and the north and south road. Toe -station nearest this way will be moved today to a point ten miles south, or nearly to Congress, and the This Week Only A LINE OF 75c Neckwear For 35Q 3 For $1'00- Wilson Bros. Regular 75c Goods. SICE DISPLAY IN OCK wmuow, GREENE THE BATTER Fleming Block. Btage line will be shortened that much. Mr. Cole brought down word from the other end of the route directing a change of time in sending out the stages from this end. The traffic on the north and south road north of Prescott is very heavy, consisting not only of regular merchandise and material for the ex tension of the road, but also of material for the Jerome road. Altogether . it iB one of the liveliest appearing stretches of road in the United States, reminding one of business on the New York Cen tral. AN OVERSIGHT. No Law Against Women Masquer ading In Men's Clothing. It was supposed until yesterday that all sins, offenses, crimes and misde meanors, real or imaginary, actual of constructive had been provided against by the various legislatures of the terri tory. It is discovered though that there is no law against women mas querading men's clothes or vice versa. Persons have been punished in Arizona for arraying themselves in the finery of the opposite sex but all such convic tions are discovered to be without war rant. Complaint had been made against two colored women for nightly parading the present tenderloin neighborhood to the great scandal of the staid inhabitants of that locality but "there was no statute covering the case" and no ar rests were made. The Eighteenth legis lature will no doubt be asked to correct the oversight of its predecessors and so establish society against a reckless in terchange of garments. ROAD CONSTRUCTION. Most Important Feature Is the Securing of Good Drainage. There is no subject connected with rural improvements, excepting- that of forestry, that is attracting more at tention at the present time than that of good road making. The plea among all progressive men who take any in terest whatever in rural affairs, and wheelmen especially, is for better country roads, such as economy, dura bility and traction. It is not our pur pose to advocate any particular style or system. Each has advantages, some being better suited, to a particular lo cality than others, like the fine and costly roads of our cities, which sys tems cannot be used for country roads, on account of the great expense in volved in their construction, into which cement and asphalt enter large ly. Hence experience has taught that the cheapest and best roads for the country are those made from broken 6r crushed rocks, using for the foun dation pieces of much larger size than those used in the overlying strata. In the formation of country roads great care must be exercised in the grading of the road bed, in order to secure proper drainage. If this is neglected the road will settle unequally; there fore, the water which will find its way from the sides to the road bed should percolate freely through the interstices of the foundation stones, and be car ried off by the drains. There is a di versity of opinions that are held both in regard to the width of country roads and the curve or crowning of the surface, many contending that a road should be made much higher in the center than on the sides, in order to shed the surface water more freely, but good road makers say that any good, compact road, having a nearly level surface, is much better than one that has considerable rise, for the rea son that such a road must be traveled through the center in order to keep the vehicle properly balanced, so that great ruts are formed which hold wa ter, instead of allowing it to runoff. If the road is level, the water must re main in the ruts until evaporated; but if the track has a slight inclination in the direction of its length, the water will follow the rut until it finds a way o f escape. When a road is made near ly flat people will drive over all parts, and it will wear all alike. The only purpose which a convex surface can serve is to carry off the water. In all other respects it has its disadvantages, because the more upright a vehicle can be kept in its passage over a road, the less will be the wear to both. The width of the country road must be de termined in a great measure by the amount of travel it will have to sus tain, which will vary from twenty to forty feet for the soli d track. A road, to be efficient, must be continuous from one center to another, and not broken by one stretch of bad road and another of good. If there is plenty of room for teams to pass each other on a solid road, and that road is continu ous, then the requirements of a good country road will be fulfilled. Land scape Architect. DAIRY SUGGESTIONS. Always treat the calf kindly. Many kicking-, ugly cows have been made by abusing the calf. Canada, by great care and study. has forg-ed ahead of the states in the quality of cheese. Experiments have shown that pota toes make poor butter. They make a white butter deficient in grain. Chubn promptly when the cream is ready for churning. Every moment it stands after that is a detriment Therr is no better hay for the milch cow than oats cut and cured when the seed is in the milk state. The man who has calves to carry through the winter should have bran and ground or crushed oats on which to feed them. Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powdei World's Fair Highest Medal and Diploma.
