They Visit the Orange Orchard and the Falls. Well Satisfied With the Hospitality of Our Citizens and Draw Up Resolutions of Thanks. The visiting delegates from the irri gation congress have come and gone and what they have seen in the valley has been sufficientfor each and every one of them to ledve with their eyes opened in regards to the wonderful re sources of the valley and with a most kindly feeling towards our citizens for the hospitality extended to them. Bright and early Sunday morning the visitors were up and at the M. & P. depot, where a special train was in waiting to take them to Tempe. When they arrived at the beautiful Butte city they were met at the depot by a band of music and a large crowd or people, who bid them welcome to the south side. As each delegate stepped from the train they were Handed a beautiful boutteniere by charming young ladies. Carriages were in waiting and the visitors were driven to the city nest ling at the base of the towering butte. The visitors were not backward in their compliments about the lovely gardens and the many other interest ing sights that betoken a prosperous burg. The broad green fields, or chards and vineyards they passed en route to Mesa, filled them with admira tion and their delight was unbounded. "Just think," remarked the wife of a delegate, "all this country was once a barren waste and now it is a pertect fairyland, and all brought about by the magic touch of water." Like re marks were uttered by every one in the party. J ' ' They arrived at Mesa about noon and after cleaning up were escorted to the large hall over the Co-operative store, where tables were laden with all the good things that are produced in abundance from the broad and fertile" acres of the Mesa country. Native wines, grapes and other valley fruits abundantly loaded the tables and pre sented an inviting aspect. Editor Morton, on behalf of the peo ple of Mesa, and Dr. Hart, on behalf of the Tempeites, bid the guests welcome in neat speeches. Some of the visitors replied to the welcoming speeches, then dinner was announced. The wines and viands disappeared before the onslaught of a hungry horde, for the drive through the country sharp ened the appetites of the visitors and. the tempting food could not but make them do full justice to the repast. After dinner they were driven through the fields and orchards to wards Tempe, where they again took the train for the Crosscut canal, where carriages were in waiting. - They were taken to the orange orchard and the Arizona falls, where Receiver Mc Millan, of the Gila Bend canal, gave them a detailed description of irriga tion in the valley and facts and figures regarding water and land. They re turned to Phoenix about 6 o'clock feeling tired, but having passed an in teresting and pleasant day. They re tired early to the cars and at 2:30 o'clock yesterday morning pulled out for the north and their various homes, To show their appreciation of the hospitality shown them the following resolutions were drafted: Phcenix. Ariz., Sept. 22. 1805. To the Reception Committee, Phoenix : Gentlemen In the name of and for the delegation from Oklahoma, I sin cerelv thank you for your" constant at tention to us during our stay in your beautiful and wide-awake city and sur rounding country. I have enjoyed the hospitality of dermany and of Den mark and yet greater hospitality in the homes of our Southland, vet your kind ness and attention surpasses all of these. Oklahoma has always been with you for statehood, with you for 16 to 1, and now our hearts and best wishes are with you. Sincerely, A. C. Magruder, For the Oklahoma Delegation On Train at Phgsnix, A. T., Sept. 21, 1895. We, the visiting delegates of. the Fourth National Irrigation Congress held at Albuauerque, !New Mexico, un animously resolve that we most hearti ly appreciate the unrjounaed nospitru ties and courtesies extended to us by the ever generous people of Phoenix and vicinity, Phoenix & Maricopa and the Santa Fe, Prescott & Phosnix rail road company's and their efficient offi cers. for the reception and entertain ment bv the social dub of Phosnix and especially the ladies who so highly honored "us with their prenence and constant efforts in providing for our comforts during oar stay among them and be it further I Reeolved, That we tender our pro found sympathies to Col. George Wood fora in his afflictions and regret that we were deprived of his social presence during our sojourn in the Salt River valley all of which we will bold in grate ful remembrance and endorsement in our eeveral journeys through life. D. M. Fkost, Chairman Committee of Delegates. NEBRASKA PLEASED. Will Come to Phcenlx In Force Next Year. Nebraska was the main opponent of Arizona in the fight over the location of the national irrigation congress for 1896. Its delegates were in heavy force and were without exception men of the highest ability, of most decided industry and of the most intense lo cal pride. Lincoln, their choice for the location, had a support such as has rarely been secured in any such convention and for a short time it ap peared as though the efforts of the champions of Phoenix would be of no avail. Still, despite the heat of the fight, not an unfair blow was struck and when the vote was announced giving Phoenix the prize, Chairman Wolf enbarger, of Nebraska, was quick upon his feet to gracefully acknowl edge defeat and to move that the se lection of the convention be made unanimous. ... Under these circumstances it; there fore, was gratifying to the Arizona delegates to receive almost the entire representation from Nebraska as their guests on the excursion arranged to Phoenix. The result is best told m the language of Mr. Wolfenbarger: "The Nebraskans came, saw and were conquered, and now are fully willing to admit that, next to Lincoln, Phoenix is the. best town in America in which to hold the next session of the na tional irrigation congress. Frank Bacon, of the same delega tion, secretary of the state board of irrigation, shared in the enthusiasm of his colleagues, and to a Phoenician said: "We thought your delegates were drawing the long bow with a skillful hand, but find that every state ment made us in Albuquerque has been doubly sustained. Nowhere else on earth do I believe there is such a valley capable' of such a range of pro ducts, and the only fear is that we will not be believed when we tell our people of what we have seen. Of this you may be assured, however, that every man of us is good for at least three new settlers for the Salt River valley between this time and the .time of the sitting of the next congress." Thus have foes been changed to friends and as an earnest of their words the unanimous statement was made that to the congress of 1896 would come every delegate of Ne braska to the congress just concluded. We will come in our own special car and in greater force than ever," said one Nebraskan; "and next time will not fail in our fight. We apply now for Lincoln for the session of 1897. In this we hope to have the support of our past opponents of Phoe nix, and joined with them we know we must succeed." '"; CATHOLIC YOUNG MEN. The Annual Convention of the National Union.

HILL HOLDS THE KEINS. The New York Senator Will Run His Party. SYRACUSE, N. . Y., Sept. 23. (By the Associated Press.) Representa tive Democrats from all parts of the state are very much in evidence here today, preliminary to the state conven- tion of the party, which will be held tomorrow. At Saratoga last week the Republican delegates began to put in an appearance on the Saturday pro ceeding their round-up, but their op ponents have shown less inclination to start in so early in the fray, and it was not until late last night that there were premonitions inside and outside the hotels that the unterrified were about to gather in force. Senator Hill will be here this afternoon, and will be the guiding spirit of the conven tion. In the matter of nominations it will be a free for all race. There is a good deal of talk as to the language in which the convention should frame its opinion of the excise law and the man ner in which it has been enforced in New York city. Some of the delegates here believe that it would be politic to treat the matter diplomatically, while others are in favor of handling it with out gloves and of denouncing the effort to inflict the most odious of' Puritani cal blue laws on the people of the Na tion's metropolis. The platform will be silent on the third term question, while exalting the present National administration. FOREST FIRES. Dolne Great Damage Near Santa Cruz Poor People Suffer.
