A growing nuisance is that inflicted upon communities by peddlera who go through ths country sailing all kinds of articles usually handled by the mer chants. These itinerants have been in the valley selling many varieties of goods, the lists embracing pianos and ranges as well as sugar and coffee. These peddlers are irresponsible. They come, induce people to take their goods and are gone. There is no one left to make good any guarantee. The goods that they sell are palmed off up on the people at figures much higher than the same articles could be dupli cated for in the ordinary way. People are caught by various devices. In the first place the stranger has no reputa tion to build up and does not care whit he tells the purchaser. Consequently he compares an inferior article with a good one and makes bis victim believe that be. Is saving his money, whereas, as a matter of fact, the identical pro duction sold could be secured through a regular dealer at a much lower figure than is paid. There have been sales made here recently at scandalous prices, that is when measured by the I .TTTf Tf UNDERWEAR IN A.Jlu Sizes, Styles and Prices. New line of soft and fancy shirts will be on sale Saturday. STRAW HATS in all Sizes. i t Greene Fleming Block. The Batter. character of the goods; the same goods could have been purchased, in many cases, for 50 per cent less; but the deluded buyers have supposed that they were getting bargains just be cause the shysters told them so. Another feature of this peddling bus iness is that of offering long time to purchasers. Many cunning reasons are given for this, but the simple fact is that it is done because the operators fleece their victims to such an extent that they can afford to give any kind of terms. Whether in pianos, ranges or groceries, the purchasers have not done as well as they could have done with our home dealers. We have merchants here who are al ways with ns. If they sell an imple ment they can always furnish repairs, and they make good any defect. These men represent home interests. If we had to depend upon irresponsible ped dlers for our goods we would go without articles wanted most of the time. It is not juBt to them for our people to jump at alluring baits held out by these travelers. The home merchants should at least be consulted and given an op portunity to put the matter in its true light. .' Over in our sister state of California the people of a number of cities have organized home industry associations, the members of which give home peo ple their bueiness wherever possible. If we had more of that spirit here, these peddlers who come around selling inferior goods and telling falsehoods about our merchants, would find this a poor field in which to conduct their operations. Let us have a manifesta tion of that spirit in Phoenix that will cause all traveling fakirs to shun the place. v THE YEAR OF PLENTY. It begins to look as if this big coun try were to fill its barns and cribs to overflowing in this good year of 1895, agriculture keeping pace with manufac tures and trade in adding to another phenomenal season of prosperity. The attention of the entire Nation has been directed to the enormous yield of corn promised. Figures pub lished by the New York World recently have gone the rounds and are almost beyond conception. It seems that in 1891, a large corn year, the crop cover ed 76,204,000 acres and yielded an aver age of 20 bushels to the acre. This year the corn fields amount to 82,304, 000 acres, or 6,000,000 more than in 1891, and all reports indicate a larger yield per acre than in that year. But at the same average yield the crop will amount to 2,222,208,000 two billion two hundred and twenty-two million two hundred and eight thousand bushels. Corn is worth about 50 cents a bushell not only in the markets, but in the feeding of bogs. This crop will, therefore, add $1,111,104,000 to the country's wea th. Wheat it is estimat ed will yield 508,000,000 or more bushels, adding at 60 cents per bushel even, about $250,000,000 more of the returns of the farmers. Then when the South comes along with eigne or nine million bales of cotton, adding from $250,000,000 to $300,000,000 further, the figures from three staples alone will bring to agriculture one and a half billions of dollars. Think of such a country! Why should the people ever fear the future with nature eo prodigal in their behalf and a half starving world elsewhere for a market ? This computation does not include the hundreds of millions from cattle and fruits and poultry among the food products. But when the food products have been enumerated the great mineral field is etill to be con sidered. Truly we constitute now, and will in all the future constitute, the chief storehouse and granary of the world. It is a tremendous country and 1895 promises to be one of its great years of plenty and good cheer. A WHITEWASH. The Gazette attempts to whitewash the asylum porches by the testimony of Dr. J. M. Ford, whose experience with building makes him a valuable witness. The opinion of Dr. Ford on a matter of this kind would have great weight with The Republican as well as with others. But in its interview with the doctor the Gazette uses only that part favorable to its purpose. Then, too, the Gazette omits to state that the plans of the porches have been changed since they were torn down by the Btorm. We have the statement of persons familiar with the porches and asylum that such is the case. ... In replacing the porches the walls have been strengthened, braces and anchors have been used that were not before, and the strength of the struc ture increased fully 100 per cent. It is tbi reconstructed porches that Dr. Ford saw, and concerning the strength of these he is not particularly enthusi astic. . Except for the exposure by The Re publican of the reckless manner in which the porches were built, it is fair to presume that they would have been rebuilt according to the old plans. So by its attitude in the matter The Re publican has increased the safety of the porches for the use of the inmates of the asylum, thereby performing a labor that it can point to witb pride. The "sociAr, evil" question was be fore the council again last night. A resolution that would have encouraged disreputable women to locate in various parts of the city was laid on the table. The problem has been solved about as well in Phcenix as it is possible to do and no radical changes should be coun tenanced by the council. A man with a statistical turn of mind finds that $50,000,000 is spent each year in maintaining churches in the Untited States. Churches seem a rather ex pensive institution until light is thrown on the cost of jails, which the same genius figures at $400,000,000. Mesa Free Prest: The Free Prese, nor its editors ar.e muzzled nor taken in by an Octopus or devilfish. When we are muzzled, taken in, or swallowed, we'll be able to show up more boodle than we can by depending upon delin quent subscribers. It seems to be coming the farmers' way this year the Southwestern farm ers' way big crops and big prices, too. It doesn't often happen that these two go together, but they seem likely to in the Southwest. The Sunday laws 'in New York oper ate thus: New Yorkers must go to Broolyn for a drink, while Brooklynites must go to New York for a shave. This is a strange triumph for modern leg islation. The Gazette boasts that it employs only Democrats. We assume also that it wants only Democrats for its patrons. C.A. R. Cheao Kallroad Excursion. The wisdom of the national commit tee in selecting a city eo centrally lo cated, easy of access, as Louisville, Ky., for the twenty-ninth annual encamp ment of the Grand Army of the Repub lic, September 11th to 14th, if fully justified, judging from the numerous inquiries received from all parts of the country relative to transportation facili ties, passenger rates, limits of tickets, etc. In anticipation of a very large atten dance, the Baltimore & Ohio South western railway (formerly the O. & M. R'y), the leading route to Louisville from the west, north and east, has made preparations to afford visitors every facility, both in the way of low rates and fast trains, handsomely and comfortably equipped, from all its ter minal points. Three daily trains St. Louis to Louisville; two trainB daily (except Sunday) Beards town and Springfield to Louisville ; three daily trains Cincinnati to Louisville; two daily trains Parkereburg to Louisville. Rate via B. & O. S-W R'y will not ex ceed one cent per mile. Tickets will be on sale September 8th to 11th, in clusive, good returning until October 5th, 1895. One of the principal events following the close of the encampment will be the dedication of the Chickamauga Nation al Military Park, Chattanooga, Tenn., to which excursion rate from Louis ville, Ky., will not be higher than one cent per mile. In addition there will be cheap excursions run from Louis ville to the various battlefields in the vicinity. The citizens of Louisville are a unit in their expression of according to their guests a royal eutertuinment during the encampment. Any further particulars desired will be cheerfully furnished on application to A. C. Goodrich, passenger ageiit of the B. & O. S-W. Ry., Kansas City, Mo., or to J. M. Chesbrough, general passenger agent, St. Louis Mo. Grand Army Excursion. Santa Fe, Prescott and Phoenix rail way tickets on sale for G. A. R. excur sion to Louisville and return, $62.45, round trip.
