PECK. THE FRUIT INDUSTRY. One of the greatest resources of the Salt River valley is its fruit product. In this respect, as is well understood, it far excella California ; but the raising of fruit has not been profitable because of the lack of shipping facilities and a market. The building of the ilorth and South road ani consequent opening of a new territory with competitive freight rates ought now to make the raisin? of fruit a source of great profit. In their season green fruits ought to be shipped to Denver and other north ern and eastern markets, and for the preservation of fruits and to furnish a constant home market, a canning and drying establishment ought to pay handsomely. If an individual or a company does not occupy this field, wby should not the fruit growers themselveB take the matter in hand ? It ia a timely and important question that should not be longer delayed. SILVER AND THE ADMINIS TRATION. The strength of the movement of the Illinois Democrats as leading in Na tional Democratic action for tke restor ation of Hilver at 16 to 1,. has excited the mind ef the Hon. Grover Cleveland, and announcement is now made from Washington that the entire army of federal officeholders, at least 175,000 strong, including contractors for sup plies for the public service, is to be pnt immediately into the field for sound money, although the Hon. Grover Cle veland haa not yet informed the public what he means by this phrase. But, all the same, fealty to sound money is ' to be the test of fealty to the adminis tration; and they who lack in fealty must expect to be retired. Doubtless a good many will be retired. The Hon. Grover Cleveland is certain ly dead in earnest in his purpose to crush the Democratic uprising for sil ver, but he will find it a great deal more difficult to deal with the Demo cratic party at large on this subject than with the 263 Democratic members of congress, concentrated in the District of Columbia, in the Fifty-third Con gress, when demanding their voteB for the repeal of the silver law. We will venture to suppose that someof these yielded to moral suasion, bat a good many more yielded to suasion of quite another kind. There are about six mil lions of Democrats who are not in of fice, and' we should say that at this moment about four millions of them are in a Btate of revolt against the ad ministration. It looks, indeed, ae if practically the whole Democratic party will go into rebellion, and that the office-holders and the local organizations in one section will constitute the ad ministration following, as happened in 1860, when nearly the whole northern Democracy followed Mr. Douglas, and the administration had a following on ly in the south. The officers were then used by Mr. -Buchanan as tne Hon. Grover Cleveland proposes to use them now. Members of the cabinet will eo into the field, as will also many other high officials. The lesser officer-holders will manage at any rate, they will attempt to manage the local conventions. Meantime, the uprising spreads. It ia now breaking out violently in other states than Illinois; in all the western and southern states, and it admits of scarcely a doubt that every Democratic convention west and south of Pennsyl vania, Delaware and Maryland, will de clare for free silver. Occasionally the rank and file, of a party are stronger than the administration and the office holders. SOME LIVING ISSUES. England intends to enforce her de mand on Nicaragua by the use of war ships; the Spanish monarchy is burling its strength against the struggling patriots of Cuba, an ex-American con sul is to be confined in a French dun geon, and our government has entered no protest. These are some of the ques tions which are confronting the administration, and the latter seems to be making no headway to ward their solution. In former times it was the custom of the United States to offer sympathy to the oppressed and struggling of other nations. A nation that believes in freedom should believe in this principle enough to extend sympathy at least. The ey- cophant administration is too busy planning to continue itself in power to heed any international complications that may arise. And in the midst of it all our own Thomas Francis Bayard is whispering sweet nothings to the queen of England. Scott, the founder of the Chicago Herald, more recently the Times-Herald, through the consolidation of ths two papers, devoted from eighteen to twenty hours out of the twenty-four tohia busi ness interests. He was. one of the most industrious of the many thousand busy men of Chicago, and to this fact is at tributed his ruined health and sudden death in the prime of life. It is reported that John Bradbury has sold the Los Angeles Herald.

LARGEST STOCK. LOWEST PRICES. THE HENRY T DEALERS IN newspaper business, however. He de monstrated that money and energy will make a paper and if the new purchasers possess both of these requisites there is no doubt but that the iTra!d will in time prove a very profitable investment. A fortune of $4,000,000 is looking for Ansel White, who is known to have drifted to the Pacific coast thirty years ago. With $2,00p in his pocket he went to a San Francisco Sailors' lodging house, and is supposed to have become one of those "unknown" bodies found floating in the bay. People whose income is more than $3,500 but lesB than $4,000 are required to make returns under a penalty for failure of "60 "per cent added to the amount of tax due." As there ia no tax on incomes less than $4,000, 50 per cent added to nothing will not prove a very formidable punisljaient. It is understood that work will be commenced at once on the extension of the Maricopa & ' Phoenix road from Tempe to Mesa. The building of the road will aid greatly in the develop ment of the south side and The Repub lican hopes to see the work undertaken at once. The candidacy of S. N. Phillips for councilman in the Third ward is not encouraged by the Republicans of that ward as reported. The Republicans are satisfied with their nominee, Frank Peck. A Republican vote for Phillips U half a vote for McNair. It is likely that a brewery will Boon be established in Phoenix. When the people of the valley iearn to keep their own money at home and bring in as much foreign money as possible they will begin to prosper. Strawbeebies nave been on the market for several days in large quanti ties. Strawberry short cake, green peas and young chicken is a food fit for the Gcda, but that is the diet of the Arizonian nine months in the year. The Democrats are talking Senator White of California for vice-president. What is the matter with Senator Per kins of California for vice-president on the Republican ticket? The feUPPORTERS of Evans for mayor continue to increase. All classes of people realize that the needs of the town require a man like Evans for mayor. It will bk a silver platform or no thing this time in the National conven tions. The gold bugs of the east have had their way long enough. Everyone is Billy Widmer's friend and they will all vote on election day. A better man for marshal than Billy Widmer could not be found. Democrats concede the election of I. M. Christy to the office of city trea surer. He is now filling the position with satisfaction to all. ' Jobs has the call on the office of re corder, and he will fill the difficult po sition with credit and ability. Ketter men than Peck and Dennis cannot be elected to the council. They are safe, sound and reliable. Notwithstanding the dull times the growth of Phoenix is remarkable. It can be noted on all sides. Way You 3 and Our sLoes are ' comfortable and restful. We are careful in fitting and guarantee you perfect satisfaction. : THE-: SUN SHINES. lowers. I owers.; E KEMP CO., HARDWARE Evans has had exrjerienca in rit.v building. He is the man the people need for mayor. . ' The election of Wood means that a safe and conservative man will be con tinued in office. The people are for Evans. That fact will be demonstrated next Tuesday. Vote for Evans and prosperity. DEATH OF A FAMOUS GANDER. He Was a Decoy 1-owl rioted for the Sac cess of His methods. The sad news of the death of old "Mingo" has come to the gunners along the line of the Old Colony road, and if he was only a gander he had a host of friends, says the Boston Globe. lie has been at Widgeon point at the lake now : for more than thirty years and was one j of the wisest and most deceptive birds I that ever decoyed the northern wan derer from his journey to the guns of the sportsmen. Old Mingo gained his name many years ago from the remark of one of the gunners who was shooting over him. It was about the time of the bloody revolution in San Domingo. The old chap was struck by a stray shot, and the gunner picked him up and took him into the pen with all the solicitude of a true sportsman. There was blood on the gunner's hands and tears in his eyes, and from that day the old chap was called Mingo, named after the island on which so much biood was be ing spilt. When the other decoys were unable to entice the northern strangers from their course, old Mingo was tried, and he seldom if ever failed of attracting their attention and gaining their good wilj, for the time being at least. Whether he had a peculiar tone to his voice or whether he was a professional "masher" will never be known, but his record was second to none along the shores of that sportsmen's paradise, and the gunners had all. the game they wanted if Mingo could catch the atten tion of the geese. After his long and faithful service old Mingo seemed to know just how to work and when to put in his very best efforts. His ideas of enticing the geese seemed based on principles which were on a good foundation. He seldom failed, and the old fellow has made money for his owners and lots of sport lor tne best gunners m the county. If there was a tenderfoot in the shooting camp he was cautioned to look out and not hit Mingo, but he at last fell a vic tim to the gun of an amateur who was somewhat excited. Mingo was owned by Thomas Arnold, of North Abington, and Mr. Arnold says that if a man should nave offered him two hundred dollars for the bird it would have been no temptation to him. Mingo was just what he wanted, and the most knowing bird in the county. The gunners gave Mingo a 'Christian burial, and he now rests in a grave dug for him near his happy hunting ground. Wilhelm's Title. The actual title of Wilhelm II. is "German Emperor," and not "Emperor of Germany." The German empire is a confederacy consisting of four king doms, five grand duchies, five duchies, seven principalities and four free cities. Within its own limits each state is a sovereign, except as to its army and its power of coining money and imposing duties, in which matters the imperial government controls, as well as in all international matters.
