Railroad Rates Greatly Reduced To San Francisco and return at About One half the Usual Cost. It will not be news to the many readers of the Skntinel that there is now in pro gress in San Francisco an International Midwinter Exposition. But much that concerns tliat tremendous enterprise, what may be seen there, its daily doings, and why it is to the interest of all to see it, will be news of a character eagerly sought by every one who reads. In the first place, what may be seen there. Since August 24th last there has grown up in Golden Gate Park the most beausiful group of industrial palaces that the western sun ever shone upon, and it will be the wonder of the world for year's to come how thesg five main exposition buildings and their three-score and ten architectural ad juncts sprang into being in so short a space of time. There is a palace of Manufactures and Liberal Arts, a palace of Mechanic Arts, a palace of Horticulture and Agriculture, a palace of Fine Arts, and a palatial Admin istration Building; and these are finished and filled with exhibits from every quarter of the globe material evidences of every industry and art. To these main buildings have been added special State and county buildings in which the products of different sections are em phatically particularized. Many of Cali fornia's neighboring States have erected ex position structures of their own, and not a few of her own counties have added county buildings to the group. The area of the California Midwinter Exposition is nearly two hundred acres, and it includes more than seventy structures. Some of these buildings, as works of arch itectural art, are superior to the buildings of the Columbian Exposition, and competent critics have said that for picturesquenes3 and perfection of landscape effects this mid winter display in Golden Gate Park sur- 5 asses all efforts ever made in that direction, 'his is largely due -to the generosity of Nature and the happy selection of a site by the promoters. The park has word-wide fame for its great natural beauty, independ ently of its aecent acquisition. Combine with this the artistic arrangements of these splendid architectural master-pieces, and the effect must be simply incomparable. The grandest engineering feature of the Exposition is the Bonet Steel Tower, which rises to an elevation of 272 feet from the center of the quadrangle described by the four great palaces. Elevators ascend almost to the top, and at stated intervals are three convenient balconies, the highest 250 feet above ground level, affording magnificent -riews of the grounds, park and surroundings for miles in all directions. From the top are operated two powerful flash lights, and the sides are a succession of dazzling and variegated incandescent bulbs, which at night-time light up with intermittent splen dor the whole superb setting: It has been the endeavor of the manage ment to make the bolder features of the Midwinter Fair distinctly typical of western life, though individual enterprise has not been lacking to make many foreign features exceedingly prominent and interesting. Among the latter may be mentioned, as meriting special attention, the reproduction of Heidelberg Castle, which reresents an ex penditure of $50,000. For the average European this splendid feature needs no de scription. The mere sound of the name brings a rush of joyful memories of "das Vaterland." Then there is the Public Prater of Vienna, where refreshments are accompanied by grand orchestral and vocal concerts. Bits of old Paris, a Turkish theater, street in Cairo, a Cafe Chantant, Alaskan village, Japanese tea garden, Chinese village, a cyclorama of the famous Hawaiian volcanoes, and numerous other attractions may be found among the Griental concessions. To delight the heart of the old argonaut is a genuine mining camp in full operation, old adobe huts with tiled roofs, typical of the days of '49; Indians, cow boys and bucking mustangs. Special days have been set apart through out the fair season for the individual ob servance and celebration by the various in terests represented. For instance, England, France, Germany, Italy, Austria, Russia, etc., the several American States, Pacific Coast States and connties, societies and in dustries, each have thgir special day of jubilee, and these jubilees will be memor able events. But the question of most serious moment in connection with the Midwinter Fair is, how can Ave all get there ? Answered in a twinkle. The Southern Pacific Company has made for this special occasion the most liberal rates ever affered for the benefit of the public, and placed within easy reach of every person on the Pacific Coast not only a visit to San Fran-, cisco and the Fairr- but the chance of a lifetime to visit the many other attractions of California. It may be a long time before such rich opportunity as this is afforded. Any further information, either in rela tion to the Fair or Gilifornia in general, may be obtained by calling on or addressing W. H. Dresser, agent at Yuma or T. H. Goodman, General Passenger ''Agent, San Francirco. The South Gila Canal comnany having made the transfers that are of record, as per agreements, it is very likely that the South Gila Improvement company willjresumo work and complete the erection of the big dam. We know nothing about this transfer, that is to say, as to the motive for the change, but apprehend that it is for the purpose of changing the company's affairs, internally, to the end that the immence undertaking may be accomplished. The company's canal system covers 750,000 acres of fine arable land. The comple tion of the work will mark an era of great moment for southwest Arizona. Phoenix Gazette. A minor. Friends.

How ArIa;onit Sjost a eei Sen, A gentleman stopping in Tomb stone, who is posted regarding Mexican grants and treaties better than any other person in the coun try,' has given this paper some valuable information, says the Tombatorie Prospector. The wording of the treaty by which Arizona was ceded to the United States by Mexico was loose ly drawn, otherwise we would have enjoyed the distinction of having a deep-water harbor. The line, which leaves Nogales and makes an angle at that point by taking a more northerly route until it reaches the Colorado river, should have kept on a continous straight course, which was the intent of the agree ment with Mexico. It was ar ranged to give Arizona a deep water harbor on the Gulf of Mexi co by making the treat)' read that the boundary should bedrawu in a straight line from Nogales to a point twenty miles below the mouth of the Colorado river. After the papers were drawn up and signed it was observed that the reading had been ehanged to make the fine fun to a point twenty miles below the mouth of the Gila river. Besides losing the harbor of Port Isabel and twenty miles of deep water coast Arizona lost some of the best land in Sonora. It was considered in the days when the treaty was signed that Arizona soil was not worth a cent a quarter of a section, and the matter was drop ped without contesting. Now that the discovery is made that the land which the United States gaye up to Mexico by this error is worth more per acre for the growing of tropical fruits than any other part of America", it seems Us though our Government should take some ateps to recover it, even though a few million dollars were necessary to move the line to where it properly belongs. It is worth agitating. Deserving Praise. We desire to say to our citizens, that fo years we have been selling Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption, Dr. King's New Life Pills Bucklen's Arnica Salve and Electric Bitters, and have never handled remedies that sell as well, or that have given such universal satisfaction. We do not hesitate to guarantee thtm every time, and we stand ready to refund the purchase price, if satisfactory results dor not follow their use. These remedies have won their great popularity purely on their merits. W. T. Gonder & Co., druggists. Miss M. Genevieve Carter, the lovely and accomplished daughter of the late Mayor Carter Harrison, of Chicago, was a passenger on Monday's westbound express for Cucumonga Cal., where she will spend some time. Said Miss C. "What a lovely climate you have in Yuma. I feel as if I wanted to stop'riglit here and live, in your perpetual spring and summer cli mate and among your roses, orange blossoms and ever bearing limes and lemons. Think of it, March, icy cold and rough in the east, and yet, here in Yuma you have the lim's, lemon and orange in blossom, the fig already as large as an En glish walnut, and the flowers and roses all in full bloom. Who would not live in Yuma, I shall return here, I want a home right here on the banks of this beautiful river where spring and summer never end." The bell rang. "All aboard," and the train pulled oat" for the west, carrying one of the most beautiful women that ever passed through Yuma, who bright and cheerful, notwithstanding that fearful ordeal, through which she passed, when her father was mur dered in his own house, yet shows that she has the elements of charac ter that so marked her father one of the best mayors that Chicago ever had.

Gov't Report AOILE PURE i A Step Ahead, Press dispatches from Washing ton, announce the fact. that, thp tmmission, appointed to treat th the Yuma Indian, to p.nt. nrf and divide their reservation across the river, has made its report to the Secretary of the Interior. The report recommends the dividing of the lands, the giving to' each Indian five acres, which he may select within 60 days, after the surveys are completed, which shall be done at the expense of the government. It also commends to .th& govern ment, the building of a leved along the Colorado to shut out the over flow of the water, to cost $60,000. If the Indian does not select his land within the 60 days given, then the commissioner appointed to divide the lands can select it for them. After the Indians have been assigned their lands the re mainder is to be sold in five and ten acre lots, to the highest bid ders, the proceeds to be devoted to furnishing water to the Indians for irrigation. This will open a fine body of land to settlement from El Rio to the Potholes. In divid ing up the tract into small lots, the government will do well, as the time has come, when no man or company, should be allowed to gobble up and hold from settle ment large tracts of our best valley lands. Land is too scarce, working men too plenty, to allow any one to do this. This rule should apply as well to the Algo dones tract below town, in case the Supreme Court decides that the title lies in the U. S. government. Wm. Garland, the well-known railroad builder, who is now build ing the new line from Bowie to Globe, 130 miles in length was a passenger on Saturday morning's westbound express for San Fran cisco. He said that he felt confi dent that within two years, that the line from San Diego, via Yuma, Phoenix and Prescott, on to Denver would be completed. Arizona needs and will have four north and south roads. Mr. G. has the strongest faith in the future of our home railroad lines. Geronimo Elizaldo was up from the Cocopah placer mines Monday. He said that the miners had been doing very well duriug the winter, though there had been but very little rain. Cattle on the plains were looking and doing welliX though the feed is not as good aa" last year, all the streams were low, the rise in the river not having reached there, when he left.

There is no better field for invest ment than in irrigating canals on the Colorado river.

Louis Iaeger has purchased a i interest of Dolores Serano, in the Gen. Grant mine, situated five miles east of the Colorado river and 25 miles above the famous old Clip mine. "An inch of rain," explains the Popular Scienco Monthly, "means a gallon of water spread over a sur face of nearly two square feat, or a fall of about one hundred' tons on an acre of ground.". T. B.

Arizona has an abundance of rich soil and a tropical temperature in its valleys. With the comple-' tion of the great system of irrigat ing canals now being constructed, says the Denver News, the abund ant waters of the Colorado and Gila rivers will furnish the one thing needful to convert South western Arizona into a vast fertile garden. With heat, moisture, health and cheap fertile soil, Ari zona only requires population to make it one of the richest of the Western States. The San Pedro river has a water shed of 25x28 miles in Sonora, Mexico and in Cochise county a water shed of 25 miles in width by 80 miles in length, or a total, in cluding Mexico of 25x108 miles or 2,70 square miles of which' 2,000 square miles are in Cochise county, which waters flow through Cochise county. Tombstone Prospector. The construction of the Colorado River Irrigation Company is a fore gone conclusion. While active operations cannot be begun before next September, it is believed that prior to that time the entire capital will havo been put up for the com pletion of the Grand canal, which' will bring under cultivation over one-half million acres of land in the Salton basin, in southern Ca!K fornia. The land is in the only frostless point in the United States. This means that all kinds of ten der vegetables can be raided every month in the year, as well as the finest class 'of citrus and sesii- tropical fruits-
