THE ARIZOXA KEPTJBLICAX, FRIDAY MORNING, JANUARY 15, 1904.
SOUTH SIDE NEWS i VA A CATTLE TRAIN. TEMPE MESA 'J TEMPE BASKET BALL DANCE. Normal Team Will Entertain Their Opponents With a Social Hop. The committee on arrangements for ihe entertainment of the basket bll itiiin form the high school Tiave de cided to give a dance in their honor in the evening after the game. Invitations lor the event were issued this morning. Two tally-ho loads are exacted to come! fi oin Phoenix; of students alone, and they will of course bring with them a large number of admirers. The same music that gave such satisfac tion at the reading room ball some time ago has been engaged and this combined with the large attendance of Phoenix young ladies will assure one of the best dances of the season. It was announced that it would take place at the dormitory but after con sidering the matter more fully it was decided that the Moor there is too small to accommodate the number that wish to dance at the same time and on this account the hop will take place at Curry hall. The team from Phoenix will make their headquarters before and after the game at the girl's hall and in the evening will take dinner there as the guests of the normal team. This being the first game played by the normal team a great deal of in terest is manifested in the outcome. The hig-h school has considerable the advantage in that they have played several games this season with ether teams. her of colts chere in all stages of sub jugation.

Hane C'oolige has just finish rt fchio pictures taken several days ago at the doubles Iiuttes. They were taken for Thcs. II. Means and most of them are of the land that the reclamation department is now at work on. Being taken from the top of the Butte they give an excellent view of the surround ing country. Mr. Means had some taken from the same point several years ago and for the department will draw a comparison between the two. More will be taken again after the work that Mr. Means Is now engaged In has been given time to become ap parent.

All the reviews note as the most striking feature of the commercial and financial year just closed the Wall street depression following a period of over speculation and flotation. The figures purporting to represent the shrinkage in the market value of list ed securities vary "so much as to make them useless, but it is worth noting that the New York Herald's tables of listings on the New York stock ex change for 19O0 show that, com pp ted with 1901, the Volume of securities fell off more than $:55C.OOO.tl"0. In 1902 the listings amounted to $1, 337,551. S05: in 1903 the listings were only $980,927,000. The causes of the slump in the rtook market have been so recently discuss ed that it is not neces sary to go into them at length at this time. Lack of faith -on the part of he public in Wall street schemes to float enormously over-capitalized compan ies Was the principal cause of the slump. Commercial failures for 1903 show the largest total since 1896; the totol being $156,633,859 against $117,476, 769 in 1902. Controller Ridgely's opinion is that " the worst of falling (stoc.v. values is past." There is a substantial agreement that good crops and prosperity in all industries, except perhaps iron and steel, did much to counteract the de pression of the linam-ial world and to make the year prosperous on the whole. Mr Oscar K. Lyle of the New York pro duce exchange, after noting a loss of 40 per cent in wheat exports from New York as compared to 1902, points out that the export value of corn in eleven months of 1903 of $46,524,000, mu.-;t be compared with an export value of only $6,567,000 in 1902. "What we have lost on wheat," Mr. Lyle says, "we have more than gained on corn. Taken to gether the gain is $10,000,000." Our foreign trade for the year has shown a large increase on the import side, estimated by Mr. O. P. Austin, of the bureau of statistics, to amount to $40,000,000 more than last year. Mr. Austin is confident that imports for the year will total more than a billion dol lars, while exports will probably show a greater total than in any year ex cept 1900. The greatest increase has been in the export of farm products, and the great decrease in the manufac ture of iron and steel. The forecasts of the year 1904 are the most impressive because they are in perfect agreement as the following statement shows. The Herald intro duces its review with the remark that: Conservative optimism appears to be the attitude of the business and finan cial world. It is but natural that such should be the case, not only because Wall street has done some damage, but also because of the natural hesitancy which comes to business men during a presidential year. It seems highly like- j ly that a smaller volume of business will be transacted during 1904 than in recently preceding years, but thecoun i try. eo far as the industries are con j cerned stands in an enviable position, , better at the close of 1903 than at the beginning, and if the crops turn out I well the promise for the continuance ! of industrial prosperity is bright. The Evening Post's summary, of the review it prints states that, "In gen eral, the testimony borne is to financial perplexity in the United States, tem pered in the east by hope that the worst of this year's reaction is over, and in the south, the agricultural west, and the Pacific coast, by an optimism which denies the existence, in those sections of any reaction at all." Ac cording to . Dun's, "Readjustment is the word that sums up the year 1903." and it is this journal's opinion th-it 190! will show that this process was a necessary precedent to ' continued progress.. Bradstreet's conclusion -s that, "There are still some cloud shad ows but the barometer "Tins begun to rise, and the commercial world may expect a fairly satisfactory business along lines of confident conservatism, governed, as the year advances. by crop and industrial developments of 1904."

There are a good many things involv ed in the imbroglio between Russia and Japan other than the points at issue between those nations and that nearly concern other powers. Among the oth ers is the United States, which has rights that Russia seems- inclined to Icnore or resent. Aa to the particular j contention upon whicth the attention or the world is now turned, we have no concern, save such as may be prompted by the de-sire to preserve the neace and avoid the horrors of war for humanity's sake, but the attitude of Russia threatens interests that this country has been working long to se cure. How far Russia means to go In assertion of her claims in Manchur ia and Corea remains to be Feen, but it Is certain- that she hflia as yet shown no disposition but to ride rough shod over the rights of all others when she con sidered it to her interest to do so. In this aspect the United State 'has a large Interest In the present far east ern situation. We should not be em barrassed In the complaint that in op posing Russian aggression we ar leaning against a friendly power and a customer, because we are just 2 friendly with Japan. Our trade with the island empire is larger than that with Russia. We hope to remain friend ly with both, but we certainly have in terests enough in Manchuria and Corea to maks us watchful of events and to guard vested rights against threaten?d danger. Seattle Post-Intelligencer. THE MEXICAN VICE PRESIDENCY. Mexico is about to remove the only clement of uncertanity that, rested lika a shadow; on the hirizon of her politi cal future, by providing for the vice presidency, a method that will be ap plauded abroad as enthusiastically as it is at home. This constitutional amendment will provide for the peace ful and orderly transmission of power In case of the removal of the present and all future chief executives. No doubt the citizen soon to be elected to the vice-presidency will be a states man educated in the Diaz school, pos sessing prestige at home and abroad, who has demonstrated his aptitude for the conduct of the multiple and com plicated interests of the nation in this active era, and who in a word will con tinue and expand, according to circum stances, the high and efficient type of Friday is th day set for the meetirtc of the mine owners in the Mox-tezum.t district at Cos.
