It is worthy of notice that the city's population has grown greatest in the years current with the public improve ments. For instance, the city has doubled its population, we can safely say, since 1891, and it is since 1891 that the side walks and sewerage and drainage have grown to their present proportions. In 1891 we had no sidewalks; now we have walks on the principal streets, In 1891 there was no sewer in Phoenix now there are several miles. In '91- 92 about 100 houses were built, in 1894- 95 about 500 were built. There is a patent reason for assuming that street paving means growth. The 500 houses were built in 1894-95 as against 100 in 1891 because there were sidewalks by which the greater number could be reached, with comfort and ease in all kinds of weather. It has ceased to be a hardship to get to them. The great bulk of this building was along the extension of sidewalks. People must have paved streets, or street cars, to reach the suburbs and thousands of them can not afford the constant use of the cars while hun dreds of others have their private ve hicles which are useless half the year without good roadways. Whether this improvement of the streets was the direct cause of our greatly increased values is another in teresting question. Certain it is that since the inauguration of such im provements values have grown to three times what they were in 1891. It is safe to assume that a corresponding improvement will keep pace again with a corresponding improvement. There is no reason on earth for sup posing it will not do so. It is safe to assume also that if we expend a half million more dollars on streets within the next two or three years it will render the city so much more prosperous and attractive and increase values so strikingly that sub sequent issues of bonds can be sold at far greater advantage to the city than now. Investors are 'anxious to get the securities of a prosperous and growing and public-spirited commun ity. They will pay more for such in vestments than for those in a slow growing, slovenly looking town. In vestors want to see evidence of a spirit of progress that are absolute guaran tees of a splendid city with a splendid future. They will pay liberal premi ums for the bonds of such a city. AN OBJECT LESSON. Everyone who has followed the argu ments of the anti-silver men has no ticed that they insist that metallic money is almost unnecessary. They tell us that business is done largely and increasingly by means of checks and drafts, and that for this reason it is immaterial what amount of metal lic money we have. Recalling that line of argument, it is worth while to turn to the telegraph reports from New York and there read that the withdrawal of a comparative ly small sum of the metallic money in the metropolis for export aroused fears that they were on the verge of another Black Friday. If the amount of metallic money is so unimportant, how is it that the withdrawal of one-third of 1 per cent of the gold of the country is sufficient to threaten a panic? The difficulty in this, as in most other countries, is that there is not sufficient Money of ultimate redem ption. The shipment of a few millions from New York to London causes a disturbance, and large shipments are likely to precipitate a panic by which hundreds of millions would be lost to the people. If the contention of the anti-silver men were correct, it would not be pos sible for the shipment of any amount of gold to cause a panic. If there were such ample supply of money of ultimate redemption as a cautious bus iness man would provide, the shipment of one-third of.l per cent of the total amount would not have any effect upon the markets; nor could the ex port of 5 or of 25 per cent of the total cause trouble. The truth is that the scare in New York disproved all the claims of the opponents of silver. It showed that we have not nearly enough money of final payment and that the interests of the country demand an immediate en largement of our stock by availing ourselves of the metal which nature has provided for us and which we pos sess in ample amount. sionaries from other states and terri tories, and hope that their visit, though necessarily brief, may be a pleasant one productive of a common good to all concerned. Today, tomorrow and so long as they remain, the city will be in posses sion of the visitors; and if they don't see what they want, they have only to ask for it. PRACTICAL MEN. The visitors who arrived last night from the irrigation congress which has just adjourned at Albuquerque, are practical men, and on that account they are doubly welcome to the heart of the greatest irrigation district in the world greatest not altogether on account of its extent, but because of the climate and the fertility of the soil. The soil and the climate of the Salt River valley combine to make its pro ducts not only the earliest, but also of the finest quality to be had in the country. It will require no argument to prove these facts to practical men who understand irrigation and the great value of a fertile soil and equable cli mate in the production of fruits. The great Salt River valley needs only to be investigated by such men as are our visitors today to be appre ciated to the full extent of its wonder ful possibilities. These men coming from all sections of the country will be living witnesses that we are all we claim. The people of Phoenix, there fore more than welcome these mis- Every business man can become successful by proper advertising. It never yet failed an experienced master. Given a merchant who keeps fair goods at fair prices; who misrep resents nothing and treats his custom ers fairly; who has daily space in a bright newspaper of approved circula tion, and who has the knowledge and experience to use that space there is nothing that ' can prevent him increasing his business up to the possi ble limit imposed by territorial con ditions. ' ' The exports of silver from the United States are much more damag ing than the exports of gold. The sil ver is bought at a ratio of 32 to 1 of gold and is sold in India at a ratio of 15 to 1 of gold for Indian wheat and cotton. Thus a dollar's worth of these products costs the British but 50 cents, and that's the reason that prices are so low here that gold is being exported instead of wheat and cotton. Yet J. Pierpont Morgan feigns surprise that the crops do not move faster. The China section of the city on First street has become obnoxious to the better class of people residing in that part of the town. A move should be made by the council to abate the nuisance. A reporter for The Re publican visited the dens yesterday and in another column appears an ac count, of what he saw. From his de scription, which is entirely trust worthy, (' it is high time that they should be suppressed. The American Bell Telephone com pany have commenced suit against the National Telephone company. This is the first suit commenced since the recent decision in their favor, and suits will now be commenced all along the line not only against companies in fringing, but against patrons of the in fringing companies. And Cleveland said unto the sons of Abraham, of Isaac and of Jacob: "Come, let us rob this people." And they came from the land of Europe and there was a great robbery and much swag. It is- noticeable that all our great men who go over to Europe and take a look around, come back with the dec laration that America is good enough for them until next summer. The Democrats will probably come to Morrison as their presidential can didate. He is about the only man in the party that would know that he was running this time. Mrs. Lease announces her intention to quit the political stump and take to the lecture platform. This is a change, but very little, relief for the public. An "Uncle Tom" company has fal len into the hands of the sheriff at Topeka, and there are many other ev idences of better times in Kansas.
